Pussy Riot’s New Video Will Grab You By The You-Know-What

“Pussy is a new dick, ladies”

Pussy Riot is not down with the Donald. This much is clear in the Russian punk band’s new video “Straight Outta Vagina,” which celebrates female sexuality. More specifically, the power of the pussy.

“Does your vagina have a brand?” the group’s Nadya Tolokonnikova asks in the opening line of the song. A line which, according to The Guardian, inspired TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek to help produce the provocative, forward-thinking video. You’ll find guys in heels, inflatable ducks, bright blue pubes, basically everything you would expect from a Pussy Riot video aiming to bring down the patriarchy.

“The owner of vaginas is not some narcissistic stupid orange ape who’d claim that he could easily grab women by their pussies,” a description of the video reads. “The owner of vagina is a woman. Who wears her vag as a badge of honor.”

Artists Desi Mo and Leikeli47 join Tolokonnikova on the song, and in her fight against oppression. “Women were slaves of the world for centuries,” the description continues. “Oh bondage, up yours.”

He announced the news today

On Monday, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president again, after he lost the primary in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And although he was very popular during the 2016 election, his announcement is drawing mixed reactions online.

Many of his previous supporters, including celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, were excited about him joining the 2020 race, voicing their support of his announcement.



But others seem to want him to disappear, even pretending not to know who he is. And these reactions have turned out, in some cases, to be hilarious.


The lack of excitement for his announcement may be because of the recent allegations of sexual assault which apparently occurred within his 2016 campaign, and which he claims he didn't know about. It could also be due to his base, who supported him even after he lost the primary to the detriment of Clinton's campaign.

Some are also calling out the fact that Clinton has been effectively shunned following her loss, while Sanders seems to be being welcomed back with open arms.

The pieces will take your athleisure look to the next level

American Apparel just dropped its first activewear line since the brand's relaunch last year, and I can already tell that these looks are going to make up my entire summer wardrobe.

The new line, called FORWARD, offers a variety of styles in lightweight fabrics like flyweight satin, which is an imitation of boxing gear; lame tricot; and cotton Spandex. All of the fabrics feature a four-way stretch, making the clothes "suitable for training but also designed for life outside the gym."

With the collection, American Apparel also launched an inclusive campaign called How We Play, which shows a diverse range of models, including blind Paralympic runner David Brown and curvy yoga instructor Luisa Fonseca.

The collection's styles offer a wide range of looks which will fit with just about any aesthetic, whether you're going hard at the gym or looking for a casual off-day outfit. Personally, I'm excited about the iridescent looks and the rainbow patterned bra and bottoms, which I will definitely be rocking at Pride this year.

The entire line is also super-affordable, capping out at $48, with most products priced in the $20-to-$30 range. You can shop FORWARD collection online, now.
