The Snob Talks Lena Dunham's Boobs and Beyonce's Docu-Drama-Rama on NPR

The Snob returned to NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin for another round of the popular "Beauty Shop" segment. This time, myself, along with regulars Viviana Hurtado of The Wise Latina Club and Bridget Johnson with PJ Media, were talking about "Lady Power" in the form of Lena Dunham's floppy boobs being the other "stars" of her hit show "Girls," and Beyonce's recent HBO documentary where she declares her career independence while also shouting out her "loving" interdependence on hubby Jay-to-the-Izzo. Since I think all drama surrounding Dunham is hilarious (but in that "laughing at, not with" kind of way) and I think Beyonce is a huge try-hard whom I both love and cannot stand, I was full of opinions!

Take a listen to the show after the jump.

The Snob Talks Having It All, Immigration, Fifty Shades of Horrible on NPR

Women! Can you have it all? (No.) Immigrants! Will you be racially profiled in Arizona? (Probably.) Book lovers! Is former Twilight fan fiction Fifty Shades of Grey terrible? (YES.) All this and more as The Snob pops in to the "Beauty Shop" segment on NPR's Tell Me More with Michel Martin. Michel was out today, so Viviana Hurtado (who I'm often on with on the Beauty Shop) was guest hosting. She was great! Joining myself and Viviana were PJ Media editor Bridget Johnson and Deepa Iyer of South Asian Americans Leading Together.
