RIHANNA’S WE FOUND LOVE MUSIC VIDEO
Okay, this isn’t an article, but we are OBSESSED with Rihanna’s new music video for the single We Found Love – absolutely obsessed! Why is it so damn good (and a bit NSFW)? Is it the cute outfits? The hipster/Tumblrish lighting? The haunting Requiem for a Dream feel or the fact that Ri Ri throws up ribbons? We’re not sure, but we know that you will love it. Oh and the intro monologue is spoken by none other than model Aggy Deyn!
THOSE AREN’T FIGHTING WORDS, DEAR “When life’s knocked us around. And our childhood myths reveal themselves to be just that. The truth feels like the biggest sucker-punch of them all: it’s not a spouse or land or a job or money that brings us happiness. Those achievements, those relationships, can enhance our happiness, yes, but happiness has to start from within.” This Modern Love New York Times article about a woman dealing with a husband sans love is powerful. A must-read this week and it brings up some good discussion!
THE KIDS ARE ACTUALLY SORT OF ALRIGHT
Noooo, we didn’t read the first three pages of this and cry for our unemployed/drowning in student loans friends. This is one sad yet true piece from NY Mag about youth unemployment. It gives us a good look at our generation of eager 20-something-year-olds who are finding themselves unemployed, living at home, and crying over their college degrees. A must-read from this week.

CELEB FASHION FACE OFF
It’s a mother f*cking fashion face off. All Women Stalk asks readers to pick who they think wore it best. We’re surprised to see that Nicki Minaj’s stone-covered, skintight baby-blue Mark Fast jumpsuit was worn by someone other than herself? The more you know.
