The Mastermind Behind Your Favorite Beauty Tools That Sell Out In Minutes

It is fairly well-established at this point that richness breeds hotness. The stuff that celebrities do all the time to look the way they look — fancy facials, regular salon appointments, eyebrow transplants, injectables, what have you — is all prohibitively expensive for anyone without an impressive amount of disposable income. That was the problem that Jamie O’Banion sought to solve with her line of competitively priced skin care products and tools. “The single mom who can’t afford to go get a hydration facial every week but deserves it shouldn’t be denied access to those benefits,” she tells Bustle.

If You Think Joyce Carol Oates’s Tweets Are Wild, Try Her Books

Oates has lost track of the number of books she’s written — the internet estimates 58. Last year, at age 83, she published four. But millennials and Gen Z might be more familiar with her tweets than her literary works (though that might change now that Blonde has been made into a buzzy Netflix movie starring Ana de Armas). So why do her tweets find viral success? Well… because she’s kind of a sh*tposter. Read More

Brad Pitt Has A Surprising New Career

In true Hollywood Hippie Dad fashion, Brad Pitt is a sculptor now — and not in the sense that your friend says they’re a sculptor after taking one (1) pottery class — but in a showing-work-in-an-actual-gallery way. The pieces are legitimately very impressive (and also huge). Maybe he’ll collab with Seth Rogen’s ceramics brand someday. Read More
