    Chip Somodevilla, Getty/Drew Angerer, Getty It didn’t take long for Jon Stewart to hit back at Tucker Carlson after the Fox News host took shots at him on Thursday night. On his show Thursday, Carlson took aim at Stewart over his fiery advocacy of the PACT Act, which expands healthcare for military veterans exposed to toxins. Stewart ripped Republicans for blocking the bill last week and at one point shouted at right-wing troll Jack Posobiec outside the Capitol. The Senate eventually passed the bill this week. “Around the end of the Obama administration, Jon Stewart disappeared, and you didn’t hear anything from him,” Carlson said. “He’s resurfaced, showing up in Washington, D.C. the other day, looking like a guy who lives in the men’s room at your public library, eating imaginary insects out of the air.” The Fox News host aired a snippet of Stewart’s exchange with Posobiec. “That’s Jon Stewart?” Carlson said of the diminutive comedian. “The famous Jon Stewart looks like a homeless mental patient. He’s shrieking and disheveled, and very short. Really short. Too short to date.”...
    It's never easy breaking up with someone - but if you don't get your words right, you could be causing more heartache than necessary. Language experts from US-based language learning app Preply have revealed the phrases you should avoid saying when deciding to tell your partner you want to separate. Many of them are popular break-up clichés like 'it's not you, it's me' and 'I love you but I'm not in love with you'. While some of these phrases are designed to spare the other person's feelings, the most important thing is to fully explain your thoughts and feelings so you are able to give them closure.  However there is such a thing as oversharing. People should never admit to wanting to prioritise their career, for example, because this just isn't something the other person needs to hear.  Need help navigating the relationship minefield? Here are the dos and don'ts for your next breakup chat...   It's never easy breaking up with someone - but if you don't get it right, you could be causing more heartache than necessary (stock photo) Don't...
    Buying a product based on how it looks in the packaging or advert, only to return home and find out it's not exactly what you expected, is a frustrated situation that many of us can relate to.  Shoppers from around the world have taken to social media to share their disappointing purchases, with viral website Kueez rounding up a selection of the best examples. One of the images includes an 8in pepperoni pizza with just one slice of pepperoni placed strategically in the middle of the dough. Meanwhile a parent bought a new water toy for the garden only to be left disappointed when it was far more flimsy than the photo.  Lesson learned!

    Galangal is a healing spice. It is closely related to ginger. Both of them are members of the Zingiberaceae family. One common name for galangal is Siamese ginger or Thai ginger. Like ginger, galangal is a popular ingredient—a stand-out flavor—in lots of Asian cuisines. Unsurprisingly, as is the case with ginger, galangal is a respected medicinal plant. It is known to decrease inflammation, helping with ailments like arthritis and rheumatism. Galangal is said to quicken the metabolism and has antidiabetic effects that help with spiking blood glucose levels. It gets attached to helping with other stuff: morning sickness, sore throats, fungal infections, and upset stomachs. The list goes on. The galangal rhizome (a root-like underground stem) also looks quite similar to ginger. Galangal does have smoother skin than ginger, which tends to have a papery cover, and it is lighter in color. Inside, galangal has a harder texture than ginger. While most of us know these spices from the rhizomes, galangal leaves are also edible and can be used both raw and cooked. The berries, shoots, and flowers are...

    Getty New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh grimacing on the sideline. The most polarizing New York Jets topic this offseason is Mekhi Becton. When healthy he has NFL executives buzzing with his “hall of fame” traits, but the problem is he hasn’t been healthy often enough to maximize those abilities in his first two seasons. While some of that was beyond his control with freak injuries, what is supposed to be under his control is his weight. Head coach Robert Saleh attempted to light a fire under his keyster at the Senior Bowl saying Becton would have to fight for his job, but it seems like those ploys failed to motivate the big man.

    How bad are public restrooms? Are public toilet seats as germ-filled as we’ve been led to believe? Source: Science Insider/Youtube Erica Donner, a professor of environmental science at the University of South Australia, spoke to The New York Times about the health risks associated with public bathrooms. Dr. Donner is the co-author of a recent review of studies on infectious disease transmission in public restrooms. Some disease-causing viruses and bacteria can be traced back to public restrooms like norovirus in the workplace, airplane and cruise ship bathrooms, salmonella in dorm toilets, and hepatitis A in elementary bathrooms. Research has also found the presence of pathogenic microbes on toilets and other surfaces in these public restrooms. These pathogens can get into the bathroom surfaces via the toilet bowl. This is because feces and urine can contain many bacteria and viruses. Flushing a toilet without a lid can disperse tiny microbes five feet into the air and remain suspended for an hour or more before landing on the ground. It’s important to note that simply sitting on a contaminated toilet...
    Why don’t giant animals populate the Earth as they did in prehistoric times? In a Live Science piece by Michael Dhar, he explains that the Earth used to be filled with giant creatures like dinosaurs, airplane-size pterosaurs, massive crocodiles and snakes, and even armadillos the size of cars. However, today there are very few animals this size left on the planet. Source: We know about/Youtube Fossils have shown that we did have larger animals in the past. Ever since the first set of dinosaur bones was discovered in the 19th century, researchers have been trying to explain why giant animals were so much more common millions of years ago than they are today. There are numerous differences between dinosaurs of the past and the largest animals on Earth today. Mammals may be the reason for the loss of behemoths. Dinosaurs, just like other large reptiles, can adapt to different environments as they grow bigger throughout life. This includes hunting smaller prey when they are young and bigger prey when they are older. They were able to do this...
    I’d like to give a little love today to all the older fathers out there who became first time dads during the turbulent 60s. I think we did a pretty good job for having to wing it. My oldest daughter was born in 1967. I was all of 21. There were no childbirth classes for new dads to help get us up to speed. No Cliffs Notes or “Being a Great Dad for Dummies” books to give us at least a hint at what the job entailed. We were flying blind. I could teach her how to play tennis or ride a bike later on, but, right then, as she was being born, I didn’t have a clue on how to change a diaper or heat up a baby bottle. Swaddling? Forget about it. I had no idea what that was. Today’s dads are involved in every step of the birthing process with their wives, and I think that’s great. My generation just drove the car to the hospital, walked our wives in, and handed them over. That was our...

    Often when speaking of climate change or things like the drought that affects more than 61 percent of the U.S., many joke about “climate creating machines.” Why can’t we just make it rain or make it snow to solve these droughts or the warming planet? Source: Global News/Youtube Creating weather might seem like a thing of the future, but it’s already been happening all over the country since the 1940s.

    Pregnancy might conjure images of glowing skin, thick hair and blooming bellies. But the reality can be much more challenging and far less glamourous, as these photos prove. Social media users shared snaps of the often difficult realities, from late-night cravings to the difficulty of finding jeans that fit. The best examples were collated in a gallery by Bored Panda.

    RONNIE O'SULLIVAN should RETIRE and yet young players flourish, says Snooker star Hossein Vafaei. The Iranian, 27, hit out at the six-time world champion after O'Sullivan previously said he would find another job if he was Vafaei. 2Ronnie O’Sullivan is bad for Snooker says Hossein VafaeiCredit: PA 2Vafaei suggested O'Sullivan should retireCredit: Getty O'Sullivan has also incurred the wrath of John Higgins after suggesting he would not encourage his kids to take up snooker as for many playing snooker is "a waste of life". After beating Lei Peifan 10-9 to qualify for the World Snooker Championship Vafaei, who beat O'Sullivan 5-0 in a match in October, shared his thoughts on the 45-year-old's comments. He told The Metro: " A lot of things he says frustrates me. What kind of legend are you if you call people numpties? "I was and am still good friends with him, but I don’t like that. Maybe he likes it and gives him a good feeling but I think people should treat him like that as well. I treat him like he deserves. Read More...

    On Friday, Gov. Kay Ivey (R-AL) signed two bills passed by the Alabama Legislature into law related to the transgender issue. One bill, deemed the Alabama Vulnerable Child Protection Act (SB184), prohibited the prescription of transgender conversion therapies for minors. The other piece of legislation, HB322, implements a restriction on discussions of sexual orientation at the K-5 grade-school level in Alabama public schools and institutes a biological sex bathroom requirement. Those bills drew the ire of White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who spoke out against them during her press briefing a day earlier. “Today in Alabama, instead of focusing on critical kitchen table issues like the economy, COVID, or addressing the country’s mental health crisis, Republican lawmakers are currently debating legislation that, among many things, would target trans youth with tactics that threaten to put pediatricians in prison if they provide medically necessary lifesaving health care for the kids they serve,” Psaki said. “Just like the extreme government overreach we’ve seen in Texas, where politicians have sent state officials into the homes of loving parents to investigate them for abuse...
    Laura Ingraham authored one of the weirdest and most half-baked attempts at a takedown on Friday night. The Fox News host blasted prominent Beltway Democrats for supposed hypocrisy regarding super-spreader events in the time of Covid-19. Many prominent Democrats tested positive for coronavirus this week after Saturday’s Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, D.C. This includes Reps. Adam Schiff (CA), Joaquin Castro (TX), Attorney General Merrick Garland, and Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo. Ingraham claimed liberals are fine attending large public gatherings in 2022, even after they warned against them in 2020. According to her, this is because a Democrat is now in the White House. Come again? At no point did Ingraham mention the obvious fact that Covid vaccines have been widely available since early 2021. Those vaccines greatly reduce one’s chance of dying or being hospitalized due to Covid, which has killed nearly one million Americans. This seems relevant. But then again, I don’t own the 10 pm time slot on the nation’s most watched cable news channel. “Well, it looks like the annual confab – bringing the press and...
    A mother-of-two has confessed she 'hates her husband of 16 years' in her new memoir about marriage - as she said anyone who embarks on a lifelong habitation is 'a masochist.' American journalist Heather  Havrilesky, from North Carolina, has written a new book, Foreverland: On the Divine Tedium of Marriage, which is released on Thursday. The 51-year-old, who shares her 12-year-old and 15-year-old daughters with her husband Bill, likened him to 'a pointy Lego brick underfoot', 'a smelly heap of laundry' and a 'snoring heap of meat.' Speaking to The Times about her relationship with the academic, she called marriage 'a funny thing', adding: 'It's insane and completely deluded to set out to try to stay with the same person until you're dead, and the madness of the venture creates comedy at every turn, because obviously we fail and disappoint ourselves all the time.'

    TIKTOK is reportedly testing longer-length videos, despite studies that show its majority of users have short attention spans. The social media platform has been testing videos lengths of up to five minutes between August 2021 and February 2022, according to a new report by Wired. 2TikTok is testing the idea of five-minute-long videos on the app Initially, TikTok creators could only upload content up to 60-seconds long, however, in 2021, the company let users create videos up to three minutes long. TikTok made the move to increase the video length regardless of studies conducted by their internal team that found a majority of its users have trouble concentrating on longer content. In fact, nearly 50 percent of users surveyed by TikTok said that they found watching videos longer than a minute to be stressful. Still, these statistics are not stopping the company – whose snappy content propelled them to success – from moving forward with longer videos. For starters, lengthier videos not only garner more attention but also allow the platform to sell more ads, which equals...

    People listen to speakers during a rally against "critical race theory" being taught in schools at the Loudoun County Government center in Leesburg, Virginia, on June 12, 2021. Christina and Renee Ellis both attend a predominantly white high school in Pennsylvania, and they both were affected when the school joined a wave of others in banning books written by Black authors. These were stories about civil rights icon Rosa Parks and Black mathematicians Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden, who helped NASA launch men into space. “If a little girl or Black girl goes into her school library and can’t find a single book that represents her and people are telling her that she doesn’t really matter, she will treat herself as such,” Christina told NBC BLK. “She will act like she doesn’t matter, and that’s how a cycle continues.” She joined Renee and Black students across the country in making sure that did not become a reality. “We didn’t want history to repeat itself, with hiding history, hiding the experiences of people of color in this country,”...

    A Christmas decoration depicting a Santa Claus with a face mask hanging on a Christmas tree, in Paris. It’s high time we stop judging people who leave their Christmas trees up long after Jan. 1. In fact, if you’re a traditionalist, you’ll leave that tree up for nearly two weeks after Christmas Day.  In fact, you don’t have to take it down until Jan. 6.—not the day you’re thinking of, but Feast of Epiphany or Dia de Los Reyes Magos.  Just think about the song, “The 12 Days of Christmas.” Contrary to what most people think, that 12 days doesn’t actually start until Dec. 25, Christmas Day. The last day is Jan. 6, marking the day when the three kings (aka the three wise men) arrived in Bethlehem and brought the baby Jesus gifts.  In Spain, it’s the day when kids get their gifts, and in Puerto Rico, kids leave a box with hay under their beds so the kings will leave good gifts for them. In France, people eat a “Kings’ cake” known as a la galette des rois, and bakers hide a...
    Christmas crackers never really took off in the US, but throughout the rest of the English-speaking world, they are an integral part of the seasonal celebration. In the UK and Ireland, Christmas wouldn’t be the same without crackers. In Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand, it’s the same. Heck, even Canada is clued in. But, in the United States, lots of folks would be looking for some sort of delicious spread if the topic of Christmas crackers came up. Despite how it sounds, though, a Christmas cracker isn’t food. It does look something like a gigantic piece of candy, like an oversized festive Tootsie Roll, but there’s nothing sweet inside, at least not edible. A Christmas cracker is actually a tube about the size of a toilet paper roll that is wrapped in shimmer holiday paper, which is then twisted close on both ends. But, that’s just what’s on the outside. The Tradition Now, before we get overly bewildered with what it is, we should become familiar with what’s done with it. Christmas crackers traditionally come out at the...
    The NCAA men’s college basketball season tipped off Tuesday night, but fans of the Akron Zips and Ohio State Buckeyes struggled to enjoy the game thanks to brutal technical difficulties marring the ESPN2 broadcast. As irritated as the fans were, play-by-play voice Jason Benetti was equally frustrated as he and color analyst Jon Crispin were calling the matchup remotely and relying on the video feed to accurately describe the action. “I’d like to tell you what’s happening, but that’s not currently possible,” Benetti said as he repeatedly stared at a scrambled monitor during the first half of the game. Normally, when the video feed goes out on a game broadcast, at least the audience can really on audio to narrate the play-by-play, but that backup plan isn’t available when the announcers are watching the game through a monitor. Covid protocols are still forcing some announcers to call games remotely for health purposes, but financial reasons have also crept into play. Unfortunately, following Covid protocols for 20 months inspired some networks and broadcast companies to keep their announcers working remotely for...

    (CNN)Joel Alvarado was 6 years old when his mother pulled him aside and asked him to be discreet as he was getting ready to meet his grandmother in Puerto Rico. "She made me aware that my grandmother was much darker than my other relatives, especially from her side of the family, and she didn't want me to say anything out of turn or something about her skin color," said Alvarado, 50, the executive vice president of the Atlanta-based government relations firm Ohio River South. "These are my blood relatives, what does that make me?" he recalls thinking.At that moment, Alvarado learned that his grandmother and himself were Black Latinos or Afro-Latinos, a group that historically has faced prejudice within Latino communities in the United States and abroad.Census release shows America is more diverse and more multiracial than everIn the last decade, the number of people across the US who identify as Black and Hispanic has increased 11.6%, according to a CNN analysis of census data.

    Tel Aviv (CNN)The new Israeli government that toppled long-serving Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this summer is full of contradictions. There's pro-peace leftists, pro-settlement right-wingers, pragmatic centrists and even for the first time an Arab Islamist party, all sitting together in one governing coalition. On the most divisive issue -- the Israeli-Palestinian conflict -- there is almost no consensus, which is just how Micah Goodman likes it.Goodman, a political philosopher, has rocketed to public prominence in Israel and beyond for his contrarian thesis on how not to solve the long-running conflict.Many have taken to calling him the court philosopher of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, an ultra-nationalist former settlement leader, who has publicly embraced Goodman's paradigm of "shrinking the conflict." But other centrist and leftist ministers have also come calling. Even the Biden administration has seemingly taken on what Goodman calls his pragmatic and less ideological approach. While the White House remains committed to a two-state solution, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in May that the immediate priority was to "rebuild some trust" between Israelis and Palestinians. Naftali Bennett, Israel's...

It kills people, and the only way we prevent it is to get vaccinated, to wear masks, to do social distancing, washing your hands all the time, and not just to think about ‘well my freedom is being kind of disturbed here'. No, screw your freedom, because with freedom comes obligations and responsibilities" Schwarzenegger, a Republican, said in a recent interview alongside former NSC official Alexander Vindman on CNN. "You cannot just say I have the right to do X, Y and Z when you affect other people. That is when it gets serious," the Austrian-American actor continued. On "Fox News Primetime" Thursday, Fox Nation host Rachel Campos-Duffy addressed the "Terminator star, saying he should leave individual decisions up to the individuals. "Can I say, with Arnold Schwarzenegger, I was born free," she said. "I'm not waiting for...
    Jorge Garbajosa, president of the FEB, has spent a few crazy hours between the interview with Marta Xargay in the country, the goodbye of Mondelo and the criticism of himself for not having taken action on the matter if he knew what was happening. The Spanish basketball manager attends MARCA to explain his point of view. What happened to Lucas Mondelo? There are two main reasons, but the first and foremost is the failure to qualify in the World Cup. We have a year off, without competition. A process of renewal of the national team is underway and after nine years we have noticed a wear as always happens in teams, but only that a sport wear. At least we understand that. And then there is the World Cup that we have all this year to work with someone else at the front. And in the extra sports aspect? You have to think about one thing. You have to know how to differentiate two things within a sports team. First is the wear and tear of what a selection is...
    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott As the school year starts at the same time as COVID-19 rates surge, Texas Republicans seem to be trying to make the pandemic worse and get people killed. It’s old news, at this point, that Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is not only refusing to mandate masks in schools—as the CDC recommends—but is blocking schools from requiring masks. And, of course, Abbott won’t mandate vaccination, either for staff or for students 12 and over. (Texas students are required to be vaccinated against diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis, polio, measles/mumps/rubella, hepatitis A and B, and varicella.) Just 53% of Texans aged 12 and older are vaccinated, and it shows. “We are about 90% more cases this week than we were even last week, and almost 10 times as high as we were just a month ago,” said chief state epidemiologist Jennifer Shuford. In North Texas, COVID-19 hospitalization rates are up nearly 300% over the past month. It’s in that context—and with all children under 12 unvaccinated—that Abbott has blocked school mask mandates, one of the key tools for slowing the spread of coronavirus. But...
    Most parents would never entertain the idea that they have a favourite child, but sometimes, actions speak louder than words.   People from across the globe who feel second-best have taken to anonymous US-based sharing app Whisper to explain how their siblings receive preferential treatment - including one who claims she's called 'fat and lazy' by her mother, while her dad says she's a 'w***e, failure and ugly. Among the other shocking confessions include one person who said it 'sucks' that her mother has gone on multiple trips with her sister this year, but cancelled their getaway together.  Elsewhere, another person was left upset when her family threw her brother a huge birthday party, yet she received just flowers and frozen chicken strips for hers.  One person, from the US, said she wished she had the 'courage' to leave after being repeatedly told by her parents that she's 'eating too much' Another person, from the US, was left feeling second-best when her family threw her brother a huge birthday party, yet she received just flowers and frozen chicken strips for...
    CAN you imagine a world where only government ministers can decide which of their embarrassing secrets and scandals should be made public? You would think not in a democracy like ours. 4Under sweeping reforms, journalists could be sent to jail for writing or publishing stories handed to them by whistleblowers such as the Matt Hancock affairCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd But that is exactly what is being proposed by Home Office officials — determined to cover up anything potentially criminal or humiliating that they don’t want YOU to know. Under sweeping reforms to the Official Secrets Act, journalists could be sent to jail for writing or publishing stories handed to them by whistleblowers. And the whistleblowers themselves could also be exposed to harsh penalties for being brave enough to risk their job — or sometimes even their life — to bring vital information forward to the media. BEGGARS BELIEF It would mean editors like me — or from any newspaper, TV or radio organisation — could be treated like foreign spies and handed a long jail sentence if we handle...

Springsteen on Broadway, Bruce Springsteen’s autobiographical musical will open next Thursday at the St. James Theatre on 44th Street.

    Generation Z: the children, teens, and young adults born between 1996 and 2015. We have been born with the responsibility of fixing climate change, the result of previously neglectful generations. This weight bears heavy on our shoulders. It’s been estimated that the world will reach the point of no return by 2040, leaving us helpless before we hit 50. How has this affected Gen Z? What is it like to grow up being taught that the world is dying and it’s up to you to heal it?  Climate Grief Climate grief is similar to other forms of grief. Grieving the ecological loss of our planet, the mental toll of climate change is undeniable. Bereavement is always difficult, but while most forms of bereavement heal over time, climate grief will most likely not. Predictions have been made suggesting that as the climate continues to deteriorate, climate grief and anxiety will worsen.  This mental toll is triggered by the physical loss of our ecosystems, environmental knowledge like cultures tied to certain environments, and the fear of future loss and irreversible...
    Joe Biden has said the United States wants to see North Korea give up its nuclear weapons, taking a veiled swipe at Donald Trump and vowing not to pander to Kim Jong-un with 'international recognition'. Speaking on Friday at a press conference with Moon Jae-in, the president of South Korea, Biden said he did not rule out meeting Kim. But, he insisted, he would not replicate the efforts of the 'recent past.' Trump met face-to-face with the dictator on three occasions and exchanged what he called 'love letters' with the leader. 'I would not give him all that he's looking for,' Biden said of Kim, namely 'international recognition.' Moon, who had a tumultuous relationship with Trump, praised Biden for 'restoring the soul of America'.  Joe Biden on Friday hosted the president of South Korea, Moon Jae-in, at the White House Moon Jae-in, the president of South Korea, said that he and Biden spoke 'like old friends' Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, is seen in 2017 at a nuclear facility in the country Moon is only the...

    Couples who have rekindled their relationship after filing for divorce - and even going through with it - have proved that even the most damaged relationship can be salvaged.   Speaking on the anonymous US-based sharing app Whisper, the once estranged partners revealed how they had got back together with partners after what seemed like a final split, with some blissfully happy while others are having second thoughts.  Some couples had been separated for years before giving the relationship another go, while others couldn't go through with the divorce, admitting that coming close to splitting permanently made their relationship stronger.  However, one woman admitted she misses the man she was dating before getting back together with her husband, and considers him 'the one that got away'.  Meanwhile, a married man revealed he got back together with his wife after falling in love with her again, but has been cheating on her since patching things up.  Couples from around the word have revealed how they pulled their relationships back from the brink after getting divorced, but one woman reveals the man...
    Americans raised on the entertainment staple of happy endings are finding difficulty conceptualizing when and what it will mean to return to life as it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some Los Angeles and New York residents told the Associated Press that they have even become cynical that a definitive end is in sight regardless of the growing availability of vaccines and declining hospitalizations in many states across the nation.   'I don´t know that I see a specific ending,' says Erica Rhodes, a comedian in Los Angeles who has found unique ways to perform through the pandemic. 'I don´t foresee a moment in time when I say, `Oh, everything´s exactly as it was.`' The kind of finish that the coronavirus has in store for weary Americans has no distinct ending. That´s a hard pill to swallow for a nation long trained - in some cases quite literally - to expect well-defined and often optimistic conclusions to tortuous sagas.   'Finding light in the darkness is a very American thing to do,' President Joe Biden said this month. 'In fact,' he...
    ELK GROVE (CBS13) — Disturbing images of violent hate crimes against Asian-Americans can’t be avoided, but discussing them with children may not be easy. “They are young, they don’t see it.  They don’t see the colors that adults may see,” said Elk Grove parent Thao Do.

Do remembers an anti-Asian moment at the beginning of the pandemic when she was getting into an elevator with her six-year-old. “Like they had to pull everyone away from us like we were a disease.  And it made me feel bad.   Even though I wasn’t physically hurt, it really hurt me inside,” said Do. “My heart really goes out to them and...
    The Duchess of Cambridge was more 'tentative' in her style approach when joining the Firm because 'she didn't want it to just be about what she was wearing', according to a royal author. Kate, 39, was 'really careful not to dive into fashion in the way that [Princess] Diana did', claimed London-based journalist Bethan Holt. Speaking to Australia's Nine Honey, the author of The Duchess of Cambridge: A Decade of Modern Royal Style said: 'Diana really quickly became this fashion icon and everyone was going crazy for what she wore. 'I think Kate was a little bit more tentative because she realised she didn't want it to just be about what she was wearing.'
