Who Is Amanda Gorman? Meet the Gen-Z Poet Performing at Joe Biden’s Inauguration

Amid the dozens of A-listers slated to perform at Joe Biden’s inauguration ceremonies is one name to watch out for: Amanda Gorman. At just 22, Gorman will be the youngest poet ever to recite her work at a presidential inauguration, and it’s just the latest accomplishment for this fast-rising star. Here’s everything you need to know about the next big thing in poetry:

Where is Amanda Gorman from?

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Gorman began writing when she was only eight. Because of a childhood speech impediment, which sometimes causes her issues today, writing was one of her main forms of communication.

While still a sociology student at Harvard, Gorman was named the first-ever Youth Poet Laureate of the United States. Another distinction? She’s a CWOTY, of course! In fact, she composed an original poem to honor the occasion:

When I see young women, I see their glow
From their impact, how they act what they do and what they know

It’s a kind of sheen that can’t be seen in glass, diamond, or dew drops
But the light of a wave of girls who refuse to be stopped

We don’t need permission for our mission to make change,
To be ourselves, unapologetically confident, beautifully strange

We’re a dawn of a billion beams, that radiant gleam
The stardust of a girl following her dreams

You can’t steal this sparkle of mine
It only comes from a woman letting herself shine

Back in 2018, Gorman told Glamour, “You don’t have to be a poet, you don’t have to be a politician or be in the White House to make an impact with your words. We all have this capacity to find solutions for the future.” True! But isn’t it nice to be a poet and make that impact with her words…at the White House? Well, technically the steps of the Capitol, but close enough.

Gorman will be reciting her poem “The Hill We Climb” at Wednesday’s ceremonies. She told the New York Times that she had already started working on a piece for the occasion when a riot broke out during the certification of the election results, and added lines to reflect the horror of that event: 

We’ve seen a force that would shatter our nation rather than share it,

Would destroy our country if it meant delaying democracy.

And this effort very nearly succeeded.

But while democracy can be periodically delayed,

It can never be permanently defeated.

She told the Times, “In my poem, I’m not going to in any way gloss over what we’ve seen over the past few weeks and, dare I say, the past few years. But what I really aspire to do in the poem is to be able to use my words to envision a way in which our country can still come together and can still heal.”

What’s next for her?

Already the author of two books–Change Sings: A Children’s Anthem and The One for Whom Food is Not Enough–Gorman will surely keep writing. But she’s also planning another inauguration—her own. She told the Times in 2017 that she plans to run for president in 2036. Go, girl.

Clare Crawley and Dale Moss Are Reportedly ‘Taking Some Time Apart’

Clare Crawley and Dale Moss are reportedly “taking some time apart,” a source tells E!. 

“They are both still getting to know each other and figuring it all out,” the source says.  “They’ve decided to take some time apart for now… They are still figuring out the logistics of their relationship and if they will stay together.”

According to this insider, “Clare and Dale have been fighting a lot recently. They are mainly in disagreement over lifestyle preferences. Dale wants to be in a lively city and focus on his career, and Clare is rooted in Sacramento to help care for her mom. It’s been very tense recently between them.” 

Of course, you should take all this with a grain of salt. Crawley and Moss haven’t said anything themselves yet, and until they do, we won’t really know how anyone actually feels. We’ll update this post if and when the couple comments. 

Clare Crawley and Dale Moss’s romance started on her season of The Bachelorette, and their journey was unprecedented. Crawley actually quit halfway through her season because she decided she was in love with Moss and didn’t need to finish the show. They got engaged shortly after, and Tayshia Adams then took over as Bachelorette. 

“I am so far in love with Dale,” Crawley said to Bachelorette producers on the show, per E! “We have this connection where it feels like I’ve known him forever. It’s that intangible chemistry that you just can’t make up and you can’t replace. It’s something that is so rare to feel so connected to someone when you’ve only known them for such a short period of time.”

Meanwhile, Moss told Chris Harrison in an interview, “She says [she loves me] a lot. The feeling is mutual…. I love her with every ounce of my being. The most exciting thing is what we have coming up.”

31 Inspirational Mental Health Quotes to Get You Through the Week

It’s never been more important to talk about mental health. As these mental health quotes show, talking openly about mental health destroys dangerous taboos and normalizes treatment. In what is probably the most stressful year on record, one of the biggest threats to our mental health is the stigma surrounding it. Nearly one in five American adults lives with a mental illness—a number that’s climbing—but the topic is all too often met with silence and shame. 

By talking about it, we can change that. Here are TK seriously inspirational mental health quotes—from Hollywood actors, pop stars, best-selling authors, psychologists, world leaders, and more—that prove the power we gain from speaking out.

1. Demi Lovato on the power of talking

“The advice I’d give to somebody that’s silently struggling is, you don’t have to live that way. You don’t have to struggle in silence. You can be un-silent. You can live well with a mental-health condition, as long as you open up to somebody about it, because it’s really important you share your experience with people so that you can get the help that you need,” she told The Cut

2. Sophie Turner on loving yourself

“For me, getting out of bed and getting out of the house and learning to love yourself is the biggest challenge,” Sophie said on a podcast with Dr. Phil. “I feel much better. I’ve been going to therapy at CAST Centers, actually. I’m on medication and I love myself now, or more than I used to, I think.”

3. Selena Gomez on taking medication 

“I found out I do suffer from mental health issues. And honestly, that was such a relief,” Gomez said in 2020. “I realized that there was a way to get help and to find people that you trust. I got on the right medication, and my life has been completely changed.”

4. Meghan Markle on the importance of checking in

“Let us commit to asking others, ‘Are you OK?’ the Duchess of Sussex wrote in a moving essay for the New York Times. “As much as we may disagree, as physically distanced as we may be, the truth is that we are more connected than ever because of all we have individually and collectively endured this year.”

5. Lili Reinhart on being proud of going to therapy

“Friendly reminder for anyone who needs to hear it: Therapy is never something to feel ashamed of,” Reinhart wrote in a series of Instagram Stories. “Everyone can benefit from seeing a therapist. Doesn’t matter how old or ‘proud’ you’re trying to be.”

6. Oprah Winfrey on the importance of conversation

“I’m a good talker,” the cultural icon and media mogul wrote on oprah.com. “But I soon learned that you can’t talk someone out of depression. Mental illness is real. And like everything else in life, it operates on a spectrum. Though there are common symptoms, everyone experiences it differently. Yet so many people live in shame, hiding their struggles, not seeking help. We, as a culture, have not fully acknowledged how much help is needed. The only real shame is on us for not being willing to speak openly. For continuing to deny that mental health is related to our overall health. We need to start talking, and we need to start now.”

7. Lady Gaga on asking for help

“If you see somebody that’s hurting, don’t look away,” the pop icon said during the 2019 Grammys while accepting an award for “Shallow” from A Star Is Born. “And if you’re hurting, even though it might be hard, try to find that bravery within yourself to dive deep and go tell somebody and take them up in your head with you.”

8. Edith Eva Eger on validating your pain

“There is no hierarchy of suffering,” the psychologist and Auschwitz survivor wrote in her 2017 memoir, The Choice: Embrace the Possible. “There’s nothing that makes my pain worse or better than yours, no graph on which we can plot the relative importance of one sorrow versus another.”

9. Barack Obama on combating stigma

“The brain is a body part too; we just know less about it,” the former president said during a national conference on mental health in 2013. “And there should be no shame in discussing or seeking help for treatable illnesses that affect too many people that we love. We’ve got to get rid of that embarrassment; we’ve got to get rid of that stigma. Too many Americans who struggle with mental health illnesses are still suffering in silence rather than seeking help, and we need to see it that men and women who would never hesitate to go see a doctor if they had a broken arm or came down with the flu, that they have that same attitude when it comes to their mental health.”

10. Beyoncé on guilt-free self-care

“Women have to take the time to focus on our mental health—take time for self, for the spiritual, without feeling guilty or selfish,” the icon told Elle in 2016. “The world will see you the way you see you, and treat you the way you treat yourself.”

11. Arianna Huffington on self-awareness

“Learning to build self-awareness is so important,” the author and businesswoman wrote for Fortune last year. “When we know ourselves—the sources of our stress, how we respond, and what actions help us recharge—we’re far better able to minimize the damage. We can’t eliminate stress, but we can learn to manage it.

12. Troian Bellisario on normalizing your emotions

“It’s totally normal for you to feel like some days you might be overwhelmingly sad, or some days you might be very angry,” the Pretty Little Liars actor said in a 2019 video for Child Mind Institute’s #MyYoungerSelf campaign. “Some days you might be really happy, and all of these feelings are real, and they’re legitimate, and they’re yours. And you just need to give them time and space. You don’t need to feel like you need to hide them or you need to push them away, because they’re your feelings and you are an incredible person, you’re a sensitive person, and there’s space for them.”

13. Terri Cheney on how to talk about mental illness

“After a lifetime of living with a mental illness, I’ve discovered that the most helpful thing someone can say to me when I’m suffering is ‘Tell me where it hurts,’” the author told Glamour last year. “I don’t want advice. I don’t want to be cheered up. I just want to be listened to and truly heard. The pain is much more bearable when I’m allowed to open up and share it.”

14. Tracy Clayton on anxiety

“Before I was formally introduced to my anxiety, I called it by a bunch of other names—nervousness, weakness, timidity,” the writer and podcast host shared in a 2015 essay for BuzzFeed. “Employers called it laziness, distractedness, and ‘not being a team player.’ My ex called it clinginess. My mother called it oversensitivity and immaturity. But we were all wrong, and learning that we were all wrong, that there was an actual medical thing going on, overwhelmed me because it meant that it wasn’t a tornado of character flaws that landed me where I was. The problem was not that I simply chose not to be ‘normal,’ that I allowed my fears, baseless as they may have been, to conquer and dictate so much of my life. The problem was my brain. It was a chemical imbalance, something physical, not imagined.”

15. Nikki Webber Allen on the power of feelings

“Having feelings isn’t a sign of weakness,” the producer and activist said in a 2017 TED Talk. “Feelings mean we’re human. And when we deny our humanity, it leaves us feeling empty inside, searching for ways to self-medicate in order to fill the void…. These days I share my story openly, and I ask others to share theirs too. I believe that’s what it takes to help people who may be suffering in silence to know that they are not alone and to know that with help, they can heal.”

16. Chrissy Teigen on postpartum depression 

“I have a great life. I have all the help I could need: John, my mother (who lives with us), a nanny. But postpartum does not discriminate. I couldn’t control it. And that’s part of the reason it took me so long to speak up: I felt selfish, icky, and weird saying aloud that I’m struggling. Sometimes I still do,” the cooking aficionado and tv personality told Glamour in 2017. “I’m speaking up now because I want people to know it can happen to anybody and I don’t want people who have it to feel embarrassed or to feel alone.”

17. Matt Haig on resiliency

“And one night I lay awake, feeling less than happy. I started to worry. The worries spiraled,” the author wrote in his 2015 book Reasons to Stay Alive, which chronicles his struggle with depression. “And for three weeks I was trapped in my own mind again. But this time I had weapons. One of them, maybe the most important, was this knowledge: I have been ill before, then well again. Wellness is possible.”

18. Anne Hathaway on collective suffering

“We all walk around sometimes feeling like we have an elephant on our chest, but we’re not alone,” the actor said in an interview with Glamour in 2019. “And we’re not less than because of that. We’re not unlovable because of that.”

19. Jon Hamm on the benefits of therapy

“Medical attention is medical attention whether it’s for your elbow or for your teeth or for your brain,” the actor said in a 2017 interview with InStyle. “And it’s important. We live in a world where to admit anything negative about yourself is seen as a weakness, when it’s actually a strength. It’s not a weak move to say, ‘I need help.’ In the long run it’s way better, because you have to fix it.”

20. Carrie Fisher on bipolar disorder

“One of the things that baffles me (and there are quite a few) is how there can be so much lingering stigma with regards to mental illness, specifically bipolar disorder,” the late actor wrote in her 2008 book Wishful Drinking. “In my opinion, living with manic depression takes a tremendous amount of balls. Not unlike a tour of Afghanistan (though the bombs and bullets, in this case, come from the inside). At times, being bipolar can be an all-consuming challenge, requiring a lot of stamina and even more courage, so if you’re living with this illness and functioning at all, it’s something to be proud of, not ashamed of.”

21. Fred Rogers on talking about your feelings

“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable,” the children’s TV host said, according to the 2005 book Life’s Journeys According to Mister Rogers. “When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone.”

22. Selena Gomez on destigmatizing therapy

“I wish more people would talk about therapy,” the actor and singer told Vogue in 2017. “We girls, we’re taught to be almost too resilient, to be strong and sexy and cool and laid-back, the girl who’s down. We also need to feel allowed to fall apart.”

23. Shaun David Hutchinson on depression

“You may have depression, but you are not depression. Stop telling yourself you are,” the writer shared in an essay published in the 2018 book (Don’t) Call Me Crazy: 33 Voices Start the Conversation About Mental Health. “Wake up every day and tell yourself that your thoughts and your words belong to you. No one is allowed to undermine who you are by defining you on their terms. Depression is a disease, a collection of symptoms. It is not a human being. It is not a person.”

24. Kristen Bell on the power of communal action

“We’re all on team human here, and let’s be honest—it’s not an easy team to be on,” the actor wrote in a 2016 essay published by Time magazine’s Motto section. “It’s stressful and taxing and worrisome, but it’s also fulfilling and beautiful and bright. In order for all of us to experience the full breadth of team human, we have to communicate. Talking about how you’re feeling is the first step to helping yourself. Depression is a problem that actually has so many solutions. Let’s work together to find those solutions for each other and cast some light on a dark situation.”

25. Danielle Coke on nurturing a positive headspace

“I consistently tell myself and others that they are loved and worthy, regardless of how it feels right now,” the talented designer and illustrator told Glamour. “As a Black woman in America, it’s common to feel forgotten or ignored. Reminding myself that my voice has power helps me to stay the course when I feel like giving up.”

26. Rachel Griffin on acceptance

“Dear Person With Mental Illness,” the musician, songwriter, and mental health advocate wrote in an open letter published by The Huffington Post in 2015. “You are not a monster. You are a valuable, unique, wonderful human being who deserves everything grand that this life has to offer. Come out of the shadows and stand proudly in who you are. You are not damaged. You are whole, regardless of having a mental illness. I like you the way you are. I wouldn’t change you. I see you differently than you see yourself. I am not afraid of you or your illness…I am amazed by you. I am amazed by your courage, willpower, gifts, and talents. I accept you, and your worlds of light and darkness.”

27. David D. Burns on avoiding labels

“Labeling yourself is not only self-defeating; it is irrational,” the psychiatrist wrote in his book Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy, first published in 1980. “Your self cannot be equated with any one thing you do. Your life is a complex and ever-changing flow of thoughts, emotions, and actions. To put it another way, you are more like a river than a statue. Stop trying to define yourself with negative labels—they are overly simplistic and wrong.”

28. Glennon Doyle on taking back your feed

“I have been following people who make me feel like shit for a decade, and suddenly I’m just editing what I consume like nobody’s business. I used to feel like, well, this person makes me feel bad about myself, but it shouldn’t. It shouldn’t make me feel bad, so I will keep following this person. No more of that,” the New York Times best-selling author and mental health advocate told Glamour. “You have to be so careful that you’re following people that challenge you in good ways—not the wrong ways.”

29. Jessamyn Stanley on accepting when you’re not okay

“I think that there’s this fear of admitting vulnerability and sensitivity,” the author of Every Body Yoga and founder of The Underbelly shared with Glamour this summer. “I’ve found so much power through just being like, Yeah, no, I’m not okay and this is not okay. Because when I’m able to accept that, I’m able to stand up for what I actually need.”

30. Billie Eilish on being kind to yourself

“I just grab them by the shoulders and I’m like, ‘Please take care of yourself and be good to yourself and be nice to yourself,’” the grammy award-winning singer told Gayle King in an exclusive interview earlier this year. ‘Don’t take that extra step and hurt yourself further.’”

31. Millie Bobby Brown on healthy distractions

“Personally, I struggle with anxiety,” the actress shared with Glamour UK last month. “I have learned to manage it in ways that a lot of people learn to manage things like breathing exercises or distracting your mind and my hobbies help distract me from being anxious. Driving takes my anxiety away, actually. I thought it would heighten it. I just don’t think about anything.”

Gigi Hadid Revealed the Exact Moment She Found Out She Was Pregnant

Maybe a runway newbie would be sick with nerves backstage before a fashion show, but when experienced catwalk-er Gigi Hadid found her stomach in knots, she knew it had to be something else – like pregnancy. Now mom to a baby girl with boyfriend Zayn Malik, supermodel Hadid just revealed more details from the day she found out she was pregnant, and how the women in her life helped her cope with morning sickness (which can strike at any time during the day, unfortunately).

On January 18, 2021, Hadid posted a couple pictures and a video of herself from January 2020, walking in the Jacquemus show. “A year ago, today @jacquemus,” she wrote in the caption. “My baby girl 🥜 was in there 🥺✨.”

Her throwback inspired a fan to ask on Twitter about whether or not she knew she was pregnant at the time, to which Hadid replied, “Yes, I found out the day before the Tom Ford show…I was so nauseous backstage…but I learned I could kinda control it if I continuously ate, so my mom would pack me snacks before each show…bless.”

Moms >>>>> everything else.

In December 2020, Hadid shared a photo from the actual day she found out she was pregnant, looking happy and relaxed in a car:


Her mom Yolanda Hadid gave fans a peek at the moment Gigi and Zayn found out their baby’s sex. Just cute moments on cute moments on cute moments with this family.

Hadid also opened up on Twitter about her pregnancy cravings, revealing that she went for “Everything bagels/ extra cream cheese…triple chunk brownies for breakfast- sourdough toast & tomato olive oil salad w lots of salt and pepper lol” and ribs the way Zayn made them. In Europe, unable to find bagels, she went for bread and cheese, though “Taylor” hooked her up in London. We can only assume she means close friend Taylor Swift, who often stays in London with British boyfriend Joe Alwyn.

Raise a non-alcoholic glass to working moms-to-be. You wore it well, Gigi Hadid!

Tiffany Trump Just Got Engaged, and the Timing Is Making People LOL

First daughter (well, for one more day) Tiffany Trump got this in just under the wire: she’s engaged. And she posted a picture of herself and fiancé Michael Boulos at the White House, because today, January 19, is the absolute last day she could. The timing is so obvious it’s making people on Twitter laugh.

Producer Gibson Johns wrote, “Lmao at Tiffany getting engaged with just enough time to make sure she gets to have her engagement photo shoot at the White House while she still has access.”

Tiffany Trump announced her engagement on Instagram, writing, “It has been an honor to celebrate many milestones, historic occasions and create memories with my family here at the White House, none more special than my engagement to my amazing fiancé Michael! Feeling blessed and excited for the next chapter! ❤️”

“So happy for you and Michael! Love you Tiff! ♥️” her sister and fellow first daughter (for one more day) Ivanka Trump commented on the post.

One has to wonder which milestones and historic occasions she particularly enjoyed during her father’s administration. Though, she didn’t enjoy them as much as her engagement, of course.

As Kevin Maisto tweeted, “tiffany really just said that the most special thing during her father’s administration was her own engagement.”

Does this note mean that he actually popped the question on White House grounds? Could this engagement have happened a few days or even weeks ago? Maybe Ms. Trump didn’t want to announce the news in the wake of the unrest at the Capitol on January 6 but had to get the word out before the Bidens moved in, which is how she ended up posting it on January 19? 

As for us, we are also looking forward to the next chapter. Bring on President Biden. Is it tomorrow yet?

The Biden-Harris White House Plans to “Restore America as a Champion for Women and Girls”

According to the National Women’s Law Center, women accounted for 100% of job losses in December. 

That sounds impossible or like an exaggeration. But it’s true. So the Biden-Harris administration—aware that it has its work cut out—has decided to take some concrete action: On Tuesday, with less than 24 hours to go until the Inauguration, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris announced the formation of the White House Gender Policy Council, aiming for what the team is calling “a government-wide focus on uplifting the rights of girls and women in the United States and around the world, restoring America as a champion for women and girls.” 

The council will be co-chaired by Jennifer Klein and Julissa Reynoso, two women with extensive experience fighting for gender equity. According to a press release that the incoming administration released, the council will “guide and coordinate government policy that impacts women and girls, across a wide range of issues such as economic security, health care, racial justice, gender-based violence, and foreign policy, working in cooperation with the other White House policy councils.” 

The pandemic had been and continues to be crushing for women, particularly for women of color. Aside from the job loss, which National Women’s Law Center President Fatima Goss Graves tells Glamour sets us “back at 1980s levels of women’s share of the workforce,” a disproportionate number of women are essential workers, women take on more care and domestic work at home, and during lockdowns, domestic violence has spiked. And long before the pandemic began,  the Trump administration was working diligently to strip away protections for women and gender minorities—limiting access to reproductive healthcare, making it harder for survivors of sexual violence on campus to seek justice, and rolling back equal pay rules

Far from achieving the lofty aim of gender equality, the brand new administration will have to contend with the tremendous backsliding that women and gender minorities have endured. American women lost more than five million jobs in 2020. Mothers of small children were three times more likely to have lost jobs during this time than their male counterparts, Pew Research found. “In many ways, this is predictable,” Graves says. “Many months into a pandemic where we have not solved our care crisis, and where women of color in particular were disproportionately frontline workers, disproportionate working outside the home while our care structure was imploding—something’s gotta give.” 

“The unfortunate thing for this Gender Policy Council is that it’s gonna have to walk and chew gum at the same time,” Graves says. “To bring this forward-looking agenda to fruition, but also to undo so many of the really harmful things.”

In a statement from the transition team, President-elect Biden noted that “[t]oo many women are struggling to make ends meet and support their families, and too many are lying awake at night worried about their children’s economic future. This was true before the COVID-19 pandemic, but the current global public health crisis has made these burdens infinitely heavier for women all over this country. The work of this council is going to be critical to ensuring we build our nation back better by getting closer to equality for women and to the full inclusion of women in our economy and our society.” 

“All Americans deserve a fair shot to get ahead, including women whose voices have not always been heard,” Harris added in a statement. “Our administration will pursue a comprehensive plan to open up opportunity and uphold the rights of women in our nation and around the world. I look forward to working with these deeply knowledgeable and experienced public servants to address the challenges facing women and girls, and build a nation that is more equal and just.” 

Over 70 Million People Are Obsessed Netflix’s Lupin

Lupin on Netflix is projected to surpass the streaming service’s biggest hit shows, Bridgerton and The Queen’s Gambit. The French series debuted on January 8 and is expected to reach 70 million households during its first 28 days, Deadline reports. If that achievement wasn’t impressive enough, the Omar Sy-led crime caper is also the first French TV show on the U.S. Top 10 list.

It quickly became the top show in France. Netflix reports that it’s also a hit in Brazil, Vietnam, Argentina, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Sweden, and many other countries. That’s no easy feat. 

For those who haven’t watched, Lupin is a retelling of the classic French story about Arsène Lupin, a world-famous gentleman thief and master of disguise, and is receiving lots of praise on social media. Sy even took to Twitter to announce his excitement about the recently released ratings. 

“70 millions, that’s insane!! So proud that Lupin is the first French Netflix Original series to be so successful internationally!” he wrote. “That wouldn’t have been possible without you. Thank you all.”

The only aspect of the show that fans seem to be upset about is that there are only five episodes. “Netflix is cruel for giving us only 5 episodes of lupin,” one viewer tweeted. Another wrote, “Strong recommendation: Lupin on Netflix. Very stylish, slick, Omar Sy is one of the most charismatic people you will see on TV.” One fan tweeted their excitement for the next season: “Finished all 5 episodes of Part 1 Lupin on Netflix. I was so immersed of the storyline. Can’t wait for Part 2!”

Viewers are speculating when Netflix will release the second part of the series. If it follows with its past history, the remaining episodes could arrive anywhere between mid-April to early-September. Three months isn’t too long to wait, but eight months might be unappealing for most fans. Fingers crossed that we’ll have part two by spring!
