Most people can relate to a break-up in some form. We’ve all had them, right? You break up with your significant other when you both decide that things can no longer go forward. You break up with your friend when you both decide that you have just grown apart. You even break up with family members when both of you are too stubborn to see eye-to-eye. And Then There Was You tells the complicated story of break ups and so much more.
A divorce party? Why not?
When GlossMagazineOnline (GMO) last spoke to Latarsha Rose, she was excited to be afforded the opportunity to be a part of the huge hit The Hunger Games. After all, it was her first feature film. She played an important role in the film (who wouldn’t have wanted to be Peeta’s stylist?) and she played it brilliantly.
“I need new music!”
I sent that text early this morning to a close friend. Of course the response was laughter in the form of “LOL” but I was dead serious. It’s no laughing matter as far as I’m concerned.
At a time when Teen Mom and 16 & Pregnant are all the “rage,” it can sometimes feel as though teenage pregnancy is not only glorified, but is a form of entertainment.

“One thing about music, when it hits you feel no pain...” -Drake
It’s a new generation, right? We’re in a time that is deemed more progressive, innovative, and just simply more advanced. Instant gratification has taken on a whole new meaning with many different forms of technology, and when it comes to child birth, the same is true. Just like with many other aspects of their lives, women are becoming more independent than ever; some choosing to even start families on their own because they’re tired of hearing their biological clock ticking, while others seek artificial insemination because it’s the last resort.
From the moment young girls are able to understand the true meaning of a fairytale ending, they become obsessed with the notion that Prince Charming is out there somewhere waiting for them. In kindergarten, it may have been the boy who sat next to you in class that always teased you, but deep down you thought he may be the one. Now, 20 years later, you realize you have to kiss many frogs in search of your prince.
At a time when quality movies are few and far between, it seems directors and writers alike score big when they adapt movies from best-sellers, especially those with “wacky” story lines or futuristic settings. In a few short weeks, avid readers and fans of Suzanne Collin’s The Hunger Games get to see the written word transform into color on the big screen.
From tracking the hottest fashion fads to mimicking the looks of celebrities, fashion has always been a hot topic of discussion. Whether you’re fortunate enough to dawn handbags and shoes that are worth more than two months’ rent or you have just enough funds to look fab on budget, people of all ages have a genuine interest in looking good when they step out of their front door.
