    Paris has modesty laws? I’m confused. I haven’t been there since college, but I recall a very permissive culture.

    • Kitten says:

      It really does seem so antithetical to the French culture which is generally immodest and accepting of nudity yet… https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/10/09/france-women-dress-codes/

      • bettyrose says:

        Gross. I know France has been guilty of banning modest clothing for Muslim women (which I’m equally against. Policing women’s bodies is still policing), but it’s disappointing to read that it really isn’t the feminist utopia I like to imagine. When I was in Paris in college, an American I was dating tried to get me to have sex with him a public park with the rationale that it’s completely acceptable in Paris. I declined because I was so far from a public nudity level of confidence at that age, but that still remains my impression of the Paris culture, and I like the fantasy.

    • Lex says:

      Uhhh what?

      This isn’t a case of some topless sunbathing

      I don’t know of any culture or country that is okay with genitals on display in normal public (non beach) situations.

      This isn’t Paris being prude…

      • bettyrose says:

        Maybe there’s a different article? The one posted here didn’t say exposed genitals. Sheer leggings. I saw the same at the dog park in the rain this morning.

      • Jaded says:

        @bettyrose — I checked out some uncensored pics and you could see EVERYTHING. Not acceptable.

    • Normades says:

      Also your country undid legal abolition which is completely a health care right. But yeah point your fingers at countries that actually have healthcare

    • Normades says:

      Yea that’s just an isolated case. There have been issues with people wearing birkinis or trying to make public pools separate and France has rightly said no. It’s honestly not about taxing women’s bodies, not in that sense at least . America undid roe and you have no health care, save your pearl clutching for that. France is fine.

      • bettyrose says:

        My comment was in reference to the article that Kitten posted, not the Bianca incident, but yeah the U.S. is an absolute nightmare right now. The entire rest of western society is more socially advanced than us, which is why I enjoy the fantasy that France is an unmitigated feminist utopia. Somewhere needs to be. No pearl clutching.

      • Snoozer says:

        What’s wrong with a birkini? It’s pretty similar to a wetsuit?

  2. Kitten says:

    I love J Lo’s outfit. I’m so excited that brown is coming back and I love the brown and tan color combo. I would wear that entire fit.

  3. Matilda says:

    First Bianca almost gets arrested in Venice for giving Kanye a bj in public now she might get arrested for walking around Paris for exposing her lady bits? Her family and friends need to get this woman away from Kanye. She is obviously brainwashed by this fool.

    • Constance says:

      I hated how TMZ wrote that she was clearly loving the attention…her face looks completely without expression at all…like she is drugged or someplace else…

      • Matilda says:

        I have not seen any evidence that she seems happy or in love with Kanye. She always looks like his prisoner that he is transporting to another prison.

      • bettyrose says:

        I don’t know anything about her, but I know way more than I’d like to about Kanye and his personality disorder/abusive tendencies. I hope she’s okay.

      • sevenblue says:

        @Matilda, there were some videos people took inside the venues Kanye and Bianca went. She is all smiles, joking, laughing with Kanye while holding the pillow on her breasts. Those videos made me sure that they are in it together, whatever “it” is. The unhappy face she is making on the streets while half-naked seems like part of the schtick to me now.

  4. WiththeAmerican says:

    And then sky news reported it even more strangely saying he died by “head trauma” and a gun was found nearby.

    Like… what.

    I am so devastated for his father to have been the one to find his son. Just awful, no matter what.

    • AlpineWitch says:

      It’s been released that way to all media by the lady in charge of the inquest. It’s like they don’t want to say the word.

    • Snuffles says:

      I thought it was strange they didn’t use the S word. Either the family is ashamed of it or there is a question if that was really the case.

  5. AlpineWitch says:

    Yep, the wording of the statements given by friends and relatives heavily hinted that was the case.

    However, I’m so over the fact they’re never using the ‘s’ word in statements released to British media, like EVER. So the stigma continues…

    • Miranda says:

      Stigma and, in this case, baseless speculation. Now people are going to say it was murder and whoever did it just dropped the gun on their way out, or use that phrasing as “proof” that the authorities know it was just staged to look like a suicide, etc.

      I just hope those people leave his family alone. They must be going through hell as it is, particularly his poor father.

    • AlpineWitch says:

      Hmm no, that’s not what this is about. It’s the very British attitude to be embarrassed by anything connected with mental health.
      Apart from some weirdo Internet posters, nobody would speculate it’s something else. We’ve enough murders as it is.

  6. Kate says:

    I saw that too, very sad.

  7. ME says:

    Bianca wasn’t actually showing anything. She had a piece of fabric covering her “parts” that matched the color of her skin.

  8. Just Chelle says:

    Oh, how I love Jack Black. Surely, I’m not alone.

    • HeatherC says:

      You’re not. having seen Tenacious D live, I can say he is a treasure that should be protected.

      • Anon says:

        Love Jack Black in the Holiday and School of Rock. He’s looking like he has a health condition lately, (or maybe it’s just sunburn and bloating)?

    • Juls says:

      My favorite movie scene of ALL TIME is Jack Black on the motorcycle on the bridge in Anchorman. I laugh until I can’t breathe every time I see it.

    • Sass says:

      Yes! My husband and I recently watched the Tenacious D video of them singing to “Wicked Game” dubbed over a slo mo video of them in sparkly Speedos and frolicking in the ocean 🤣 high art

    • Christine says:

      You are definitely not alone!

      I need them to do a full cover of this song, it’s EXCELLENT!

      This makes me want to join TikTok, just so I can like this. Is that a thing on TikTok?

    • lucy2 says:

      I love him too!

    • Giddy says:

      I love Jack Black. He absolutely nailed his role in Bernie and his voice is fantastic.

  9. sarah says:

    Wow the French just love telling women how to dress: liberté but only in the way we say.

    • Normades says:

      No really not. The US is taking the cake in outlawing women’s rights

      • Blithe says:

        Among other things. The US would definitely benefit from some version of our own “Marshall Plan”— to support our fraying civil rights and crumbling infrastructures. Perhaps those countries and cultures that prospered with the support of the original Marshall Plan might oblige?

        There’s something really odd about using our tax dollars to support freedoms, justice, and quality of life issues in other countries, while so many Americans are struggling.

  10. MaryContrary says:

    Why would William be more distraught than Gabriella’s own parents who were at the memorial? There is not really an evidence that William and he were close.

    • Kate says:

      I don’t think you can determine how distraught someone is by their actions, although it’s not like The Prince/Princess of Kent are exactly known for their empathy. People grieve in different ways, and you can also be distraught by the death of someone you aren’t particularly close to. I don’t think it helps anybody to police how distraught someone is/should be or how they ought to grieve.

  11. Lucy says:

    DeauxMoi had posted a blind that Will missed the funeral because another affair bomb is coming and he was spending the day fighting about that.

    She doesn’t vet anything, but this seems like the same tone of the blind that exposed the pegging thing, which is written like a professional. Keeping my eyes peeled.

  12. Bumblebee says:

    Description of the outfit says she was wearing sheer tights with NO underwear. Here in the USA that’s public nudity. My concern is children seeing this. Walking down the sidewalk with your young kids and they get a great view of a woman’s v*gina and a**. No. There are private adult only clubs where you can be an exhibitionist.

  13. Bachy says:

    Miley’s new song sounds like it coulda been a duet with Shania Twain.

  14. Raven says:

    Whatever is going on with the Cyrus family is a mess, and no one looks good no matter which side you believe.

  15. ML says:

    More Tenacious D, please! That was such a joyful cover of Britney’s hit.

    I’m not exactly a fan of the Dutch Eurovision song, but here’s a (Dutch language) video where a sign language interpreter does the song for hearing impaired people. This put a smile on my face, too: https://www.nu.nl/306674/video/gebarentolk-hakt-erop-los-tijdens-europapa-van-joost-klein.html

    Is singing along in your living room for 20 seconds on X really going to be called a “cover” come on man!
