Babe investigates: How old is too old for a belly ring?
I just want my stomach hole to shine, y’know?
by Jenn Ficarra
On Anna Faris' podcast, Anna Faris is Unqualified, Chris Evans says any woman over 25 who has a belly ring is a "hard pass." It was then that I began to spiral. If Chris Evans, an ice cream cone on the hottest day of the year, thinks they're trashy then I had to ask myself: are they?
For a second I thought maybe I was getting too old to have a belly ring but then I saw Priyanka Chopra has one too and I feel better.

Is there a certain age where a belly ring isn't hot but tragic? Were people looking at me with pity in their eyes because I still had belly bling? Did they think I was unable to let go of my carefree youth? Did they think I was trash?
What age is too old to still have a belly button ring? Asking for a friend….😏

For those of us who currently have them, is having a belly ring over the age of 25 social suicide? When is a person too old to have a belly ring?
"I'm 21 and want to keep mine forever."
"I wouldn't go as far as saying it's tragic but I feel like it may be a little much."
"I got rid of mine at 18."
How old is too old for a midlife-crisis belly ring? Asking for a middle-aged friend, obviously.

"When you feel you no longer want to wear it."
"I'm 21 and I'm torn between taking it out and having a hole in my belly or just leaving it in."
"If you think you're too old then you're too old."
When you buy a $10 belly button ring because all of yours are broken and you know you're too old for one but you're clinging to your youth

Some people definitely agree that a belly ring over 25 is trashy/tragic whilst others think that it's fine but over 30 is cause for concern.
But then I had a thought… were there any celebrities over 30 who still rocked a belly ring? The answer, my friends, is yes.
Our queen and savior, Britney Jean Spears, at the young age of 35 is still rocking the belly bling. And you guys? If it's good enough for the Princess of Pop then fuck the haters. It's good enough for us all.
Now, I will say, if the only thing standing between me and Chris Evans is a belly ring then I would happily rip mine out right now. But I guess there's only one answer to this investigation: do whatever you want and fuck other people's opinions. Wear it until you're 95 for all I care, just be warned that Chris Evans thinks you're a solid left swipe.
The evil is defeated: Thongs are over
At least to me, anyway
by Caroline Phinney
2007 was a big year. Carrie Underwood won a Grammy, Rihanna released her hit single "Umbrella" featuring Jay-Z, and in the back corners of 18+ nightclubs everywhere, thongs and low rise jeans finally had their moment.But it's been ten long years, and women are finally standing up for themselves. Carrie Underwood has turned to SoulCycle,…
Forever 21 is opening a new beauty store, but they should just stick to ‘I ❤️ Pizza’ t-shirts
No one needs that much glitter in their makeup
by Jenn Ficarra
I trust Forever 21 with few things — clothes for costumes, cheap accessories I don't mind getting dirty, and ironic graphic t-shirts to wear to the gym and no where else. That's it. I certainly don't trust any kind of beauty product they try to peddle on the way to the checkout counter.But apparently, some…

Fenty would never do this to me
by Amanda Ross
Yesterday, someone at Tarte Cosmetics with no brain or heart posted this racist meme for the makeup brand's 7 million followers to enjoy:So I shouldn't have to explain why saying "ching chong" is racist, but because I know someone is going to bring it up in the comments, there is a long history of using…
