The Snob Talks Syrian Intervention, Smart Women of Twitter on NPR

This past Wednesday I returned to NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin where I was again part of the "Beauty Shop" segment. This time I was joined by my friends Keli Goff of The Root and Bridget Johnson of PJ Media. We talked about Syria, the whole Fast Company "Smart Women of Twitter" debacle and about child-free zones on airlines. Check it out after the jump.

The Snob Talks Zimmerman Trial Aftermath on NPR

Michel Martin

Wednesday The Snob returned to the Beauty Shop segment of NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin. It was all about Zimmerman verdict aftermath. (I'm amazed any of us still had anything left to talk about!) But a good show was had with myself, Bridget Johnson of PJ Media and my friend Keli Goff, political correspondent for The Root.

Check it out.

The Snob Quoted This Month In Ms. Magazine

Guess which story I was interviewed for? Durr. Beyonce. It's always Beyonce.

Point #1: I like how Ms. found one of the most conservative photos ever of King Bey. It's like a photo from the time she got bored and decided to enter and win the Miss America beauty pageant.

Point #2: That headline is missing a question mark as in the interview with author Janell Hobson we were debating if Beyonce's actions and lyrics could be considered feminist. VERDICT IS STILL OUT!

Check the magazine out on newsstands this spring and summer.

I'm also quoted this week in an article about black people and mental illness on The Root, written by mi amiga Keli Goff. Check that out as well here.
