11 People on Why They Showed Up to Abortion Rights Protests

On Saturday, in major cities and tiny towns in every state, people gathered to march at abortion rights protests. People of all genders, ages, religions, sexualities, and abilities took to the streets with chants like “My body, my choice, her body, her choice,” and “Pro-life, your name’s a lie. You don’t care if people die.” Activists and activists-in-the-making shared rage, grief, humor, and political strategies, in response to this month’s news that the Supreme Court has reportedly voted to roll back Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that found a constitutional right to abortion. 

Elderly women decades deep into their abortion fights marched alongside young girls taking their first steps as activists. Dogs walked patiently along march routes packed with thousands of protesters. Straight, cis-men practiced showing up. Multigenerational families spent their Saturdays parked in front of city halls, and thousands of signs danced in the air.

The reversal of Roe v. Wade will plunge the country into an even deeper human rights crisis in which women and gender and sexual minorities may face constant peril. On Saturday, Glamour caught up with people in nine cities who showed up for abortion rights protests. 

Cheryl, 57, Orlando, Florida

I’m the mom of three 20-something girls. I had “the talk” with my doctor twice in my life. The first time, I chose an abortion. The second time, I chose to let nature take its course. The choice is MINE because abortion IS a healthcare treatment option that should never be banned. The protection I had to choose my healthcare outcome was from Roe v. Wade. It allowed me to vote Republican my whole life. I don’t have that protection any more. I’m going to today’s rally to figure out how to pivot from a lifelong Republican, to the opposite.

Allie, 14, San Francisco, Ca

It’s scary to think that teenagers who may accidentally get pregnant are forced to have a baby, and that’s not right at all. They could have to drop out of school, and all their dreams could be crushed from it.

Nina, 13, San Francisco, Ca

I just like to think abortion is something I can have in the future. It’s not something I need now, but in the future I never know.

Julie, 53, Birmingham Alabama

My aunt had an illegal abortion and couldn’t have children. She loved kids. My mom reared me pro-choice, she was a free thinking feminist who didn’t like to be called that. I believe in adequate access for healthcare for women. I will not stop until we get it.

Britney Spears Says She Had Miscarriage: ‘This Is a Devastating Time for Any Parent’

Just over a month after Britney Spears announced she was pregnant with her third child, the singer shared on Instagram a devastating update: She has miscarried. Spears opened up about the pregnancy loss in an emotional statement that was posted to Instagram alongside her partner Sam Asghari.

“It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that we have lost our miracle baby early in the pregnancy,” the couple shared in their statement. “This is a devastating time for any parent. Perhaps we should have waiting to announce until we were further along, however, we were overly excited to share the good news. Our love for each other is our strength. We will continue trying to expand our beautiful family. We are grateful for all of your support. We kindly ask for privacy during this difficult moment.”

“We are grateful for what we have in the process of expanding our beautiful family. Thank you for your support,” Spears added in the caption.

Last month Spears shared that she had experienced perinatal depression during her earlier pregnancies but didn’t feel comfortable disclosing that until this pregnancy. “Some people considered it dangerous if a woman complained like that with a baby inside her,” she wrote, “but now women talk about it everyday… thank Jesus we don’t have to keep that pain a reserved proper secret!” 

Britney Spears currently has two children—Sean and Jayden—with her ex-husband Kevin Federline, and she’s spoken before about wanting more children with Asghari. “I wanted to take the IUD out, so I could start trying to have another baby,” Spears told the court as she was petitioning to end her conservatorship. “But they don’t want me to have…any more children. So basically, this conservatorship is doing me way more harm than good. I deserve to have a life.”


160 Celebrities Teamed With Planned Parenthood for a ‘Bans Off Our Bodies’ Ad

“WE WILL NOT GO BACK—AND WE WILL NOT BACK DOWN.”

So says a defiant statement organized by Planned Parenthood and placed in a full-page ad in Friday’s New York Times. With the hashtag #BansOffOurBodies, 160 young recording artists signed their names to the message stating, “We are Artists. Creators. Storytellers. We are the new generation stepping into power. Now we are being robbed of our power.”

The signatories are a who’s who of pop music artists and influences, including Billie Eilish, Megan Thee Stallion, Ariana DeBose, Olivia Rodrigo, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Hailee Steinfeld, Phoebe Bridgers, Kendall Jenner, Miley Cyrus, Halsey, and many others. Some men showed up, too, including Finneas O’Connel, Shawn Mendes, Asa Butterfield, Thomas Doherty, and more.

The highly visible ad came in advance of Saturday’s nationwide “Bans Off Our Bodies” protests, in which thousands are expected to march in response to the recently leaked Supreme Court memo that could overturn Roe v. Wade.

“The Supreme Court is planning to overturn Roe v. Wade, taking away the constitutional right to abortion,” the ad warned. “Our power to plan our futures and control our own bodies depends on our ability to access sexual and reproductive health care, including abortion.”

This ad is far from the first celebrity response to the Roe v. Wade decision leak. Earlier this month, Phoebe Bridgers shared her abortion story, and late-night hosts like John Oliver and Stephen Colbert have used their positions to come out against the probable decision. 

Some celebrities will presumably make their voices heard at various “Bans Off Our Bodies” rallies, given their ardent support of reproductive rights. Planned Parenthood is expecting as many as 50,000 people to gather outside City Hall in downtown Los Angeles. In New York, there is a planned march from Cadman Plaza and across the Brooklyn Bridge, and Washington, D.C. is expecting up to 15,000 protestors on the National Mall in a march to the Supreme Court. 

Tiger’s Eye Blonde Is the Coolest Summer Hair Color

After a winter of deep hair colors, the pendulum is swinging back to the bright side, and we’re in for a blonde summer. ‘Tiger’s eye blonde’ hair is just the latest example of lighter and brighter shades taking over, and it’s getting us in the mood for warmer weather.

The shade is equally as dimensional and shiny as the shimmering striped stone it’s named for, thanks to carefully layered highlights. “It’s the blonde that keeps on giving brightness,” says Lorena M. Valdes, a colorist at Maxine Salon in Chicago. She adds that tiger eye blonde is pretty much as bright  as your hair can get without being a raw bleached blonde. “It’s a polished version that will be able to bring a bit of sunshine on rainy spring days.” 

While anything this bright is going to require maintenance, Valdes likes that the level is pretty much up to you. “You can go with a bleach and tone, root touch ups, highlights, or balayage, depending on how much blonde you want to see.” That being said, she really only recommends going this light for someone who has naturally lighter hair. “Darker bases still have a chance, but will need more care in order to prevent banding and damage,” she says.

Elizabeth Olsen Admits She’s No Longer Close Friends With Chris Evans

Vanity Fair: You’ve said you and this man, Chris Evans, are very close friends. 

Elizabeth Olsen: We were. We lived very close to each other and during that time we hang out a lot. I still like him but I don’t, like, hang out with him anymore.

VF: You don’t like hanging out with him anymore?

Olsen:  No, I just like—no, it’s not that I don’t like hanging out with him anymore. I was doing it more in an LA way. I don’t, like, still hang out with him. I was doing it more as a Valley kid. But um, yeah, he has a great laugh, so it makes you feel better about yourself when you tell a joke.

VF: Would you say you were BFFs?

Olsen: Never, but we were friends…I mean, we’re friends. I don’t know why I’m acting like he’s dead. We’re friends but, like, we just don’t hang out anymore.

Jennifer Lopez Matched Her Latest Ab-Baring Outfit to Her Engagement Ring

Green is still Jennifer Lopez’s favorite color.

In a new installment of her newsletter, On The JLo, the quadruple threat opened up about how her priorities have evolved over the years, slowly shifting away from Hollywood grandeur to quality time with her family—including fiancé Ben Affleck. “It’s super important for me, especially now, to prioritize my personal life and not just my work life,” she wrote in her newsletter, which was sent to fans on May 13. “When I had kids 14 years ago was when I started thinking differently. Things changed for me. Little by little, my perspective has turned into a healthier work-life balance.” 

That’s only become more important to Lopez since Affleck proposed in April. “Now that I’m getting married, it’s about my family first and foremost,” she continued. “It’s about having enough time to be the woman, the mother, the partner and the person that I need to be for the important people in my life. It must be a very special project if it’s going to take time away from my family.”

In the newsletter, Jennifer Lopez also shared a series of date night photos with the fiancé in question. “Oh by the way, green is still my lucky color,” she wrote underneath three PDA-heavy photos with Affleck. In the pics, Lopez is wearing a crushed green velvet set that perfectly matches the engagement ring Affleck used to propose to Lopez while she was taking a bubble bath

Green has held a special place in Lopez’s heart—and wardrobe—for years. “I always say the color green is my lucky color,” Lopez once wrote in another On the JLo newsletter, regarding the plunging  Versace gown she famously wore to the Grammys in the year 2000. “I’ve realized there are many moments in my life where amazing things happened when I was wearing green.”

Katy Perry Reveals Why She Once Broke Up With Orlando Bloom

Katy Perry is opening up about the not-so-perfect side of her relationship with Orlando Bloom.

The couple has been together since 2016 and shares a one-year-old daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom. However, there was at least one period of time (that we know of) where Perry and Bloom were on a break. The pair split in March 2017 only to eventually reconcile in 2018. By February 2019, the couple was engaged

In a new interview with Chelsea Handler for the comedian’s podcast, Life Will Be the Death of Me, the American Idol judge opened up about how she and Bloom work through their differences. The answer? Couple’s therapy.

“Your partners usually see your best and a lot of your worst sides because they’re there to be your mirrors,” Perry said. “Orlando and I do couple’s therapy, and we love it because it keeps us in tune, and the resentment can get really strong when you’re both working hard. And God bless successful people in the spotlight, and so when you want to come back to being normal in a domesticated world where you have a child and stuff like that, you have to really learn how to be kind of different out there in the big and in the small. And so we’ve had a lot of success with that couple’s therapy.”

When a viewer asked if there’s a specific treatment plan that Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom call upon during times of strife, Perry opened up about “the Hoffman Process,” a retreat they’ve both attended separately. “I went to this place—I’m sure you’ve heard of it—called the Hoffman Process. And I went there—Orlando went before me.”

Perry broke things off with Bloom upon his return because he “wasn’t leaning into all of my bullshit” and she felt the relationship had lost its luster. “It became boring, and I was like, ‘We’re breaking up then,’” Perry said. “And then I had the worst year of my life—not just because of relationships but a lot of different things were changing and shifting for me in which I really truly believe was an opportunity for me to evolve and grow. It was like, here we are at the fork in the road. Are you going to take the L or are you going to take the R?” 

All the Canceled TV Shows of 2022 So Far

Batwoman: Though Batwoman survived one controversial casting change, it didn’t survive the network’s latest purge. Canceled after three seasons.

Legends of Tomorrow: The time-traveling superhero series has evolved so much in seven seasons that it’s a shame they weren’t granted a final season to bring the saga to a close. Canceled after seven seasons.

The Big Leap: Honestly, this one really hurt. The Fox comedy about the cast and crew of a reality dance competition left us laughing and crying week after week. Plus, we’ll really miss Scott Foley’s face. Canceled after one season.

Love, Victor: The queer romance series, which is set in the same universe as the Love, Simon movie, will not get a fourth season. We’d recommend Heartstopper on Netflix to soothe the pain. Canceled after three seasons, the finale will serve as a series finale.
