My dearest Beyoncé, I hope this letter finds you in perfect health and in the highest of spirits. My name is Jahmeel and I am just one who stands amongst your millions of adoring and loyal fans. But more specifically, I remain rooted in the ever present and may I add, militant ranks of the BeyHive. Over the years I have had the pleasure of watching you grow as an artist, though unfortunately I have up to this date been unable to attend one of your shows, I have made it a point of duty to incorporate your music (from all 6 albums) into my everyday routine. It heals me. It reminds me that life is merely a reflection of whatever I think and perceive it to be. It gives me comfort in times of distress and fuels my desire to always strive for excellence in whatever I do. More importantly...

Well it's Thursday evening, and I'm at home about to whip up some din and I hear a "da da da daaaaaa" sound from my phone. Nothing out of the ordinary, just my local news app letting me know something is going down in my area. Awesome. I swipe down to check out what the headline is, andddddddddddd instant eyeroll... Just another update on this Plum teacher sex scandal. Seriously? How long has it been now, is the horse not dead? Of course not! This is news! This is media-worthy! And I get it...trust me..I get it. I have nothing but the highest respect for all journalists. The job is not all glitz and glam behind the cam. It's hard work. So hard that I decided to drop my Broadcasting major right in the beginning of my senior year of college. I was way more into the glitz and glam...

I want to bring this issue under your kind notice that the movie “Maalik” has been banned all over Pakistan. It is a new topic in Pakistan’s industry as the story was about the leaders and politicians of Pakistan. Three weeks after Ashir Azeem’s directed movie ‘Maalik’ premiered at the theatres all across Pakistan, the Federal Information Ministry and Sindh government has banned the film. No such reason has been specified in the notifications. The film has been accused by some quarters because the topic is promoting ethnic racism and showing Pakistani politicians in bad light. It has been banned because it shows Pakistan’s former chief minister as a man of corruption. My issue is that why this movie has been banned when no such other authentic reason is raised due to which it should be...

Dear Kangana and Hrithik, As a fan…. I am going to stop here and put this word “fan” used too loosely too often in perspective. A fan, who spends their middle class income on entertainment made by you and your talented teams. A fan, who invests their time (closely 3 hours) in entertainment made by you and your talented teams. A fan, who parts ways with her pragmatism and rationale when watches with wonder, entertainment made by you and your talented teams. A fan, who has to shift and reschedule her busy middle class work, home, and children to watch entertainment made by you and your talented teams. A, fan for whom the heroes are not just actors but the technicians, writers, unit directors and the little man holding the light. So going back to where we started, as a fan, I humbly...

Stop the Spit What is my pain that you trample it through the dirt? My body abused, unearthed from my dignity Well positioned for the pleasure of your calloused eyes You, who pretend to regenerate me in blood – in vengeance Create instead a monster, soul less, inhuman An Open Letter to Meir Zarchi, writer/director of the I Spit on Your Grave movies, Not many movies can boast success from its low budget origins with a popular franchise decades later. So from a commercial standpoint, your achievements are undeniable. However, your success comes at the price of monetizing rape as entertainment. I can see how a possible message of empowerment for rape victims is layered beneath the gore and shocking images. But, empowerment comes in the form of brutal revenge which complicates any...

Dear Linda, Hope this letter finds you doing well. Let me preface this letter by saying that I have never done this sort of thing before. I am a wife, mother and grandmother. I have followed your career since the King's Crossing days. Yes, I unfortunately just "dated" myself. The main reason for this letter is to say Thank You for speaking out about your struggle with Bi-Polar disorder. I do realize that was a few years ago now. But, I recently went back and read all of your interviews on the subject. Because of your courage and strength to speak about mental illness, we all know there's a stigma attached, I finally found myself in a Psychiatrist office asking for help. I will admit that I was terrified! After several hours it was determined that I am not Bi-Polar, although I...

Dear Hrithik, Although I'm of Indian ethnicity, I was born and raised in America, so today, I'm going to exercise my American right to free speech. I'm also going to exercise my human right to have and voice my opinion. Therefore, I want to make it very clear that the aforementioned statements are facts, but the rest of my letter will be composed of my opinions. On January 28, 2016, Pinkvilla "wanted to find out more on why the casting of 'Aashiqui 3' fell through" and asked Kangana Ranaut if she was aware of the rumors about it. Kangana responded; you tweeted, and legal notices were sent from you to her and contrariwise. Ever since, new online articles, regarding the ongoing conflict between you two Bollywood actors, have been published daily. You and your team have...

Dear Beyonce- It’s been a few days since you took the world by storm with Lemonade, but it still lingers on my mind. It is such a deeply haunting, raw demonstration of creativity and self-expression. For me, it was very liberating. I almost felt like I was living vicariously through you. Infidelity is the elephant in the room for so many people. More people have dealt with it than we can imagine, men and women. It is such a painful, life-shattering experience and one that can easily feel like the end of the world. I can’t count how many times I’ve wanted to take a baseball bat to someone’s window. How many times I’ve wondered if it’s worse to look jealous or crazy or to be walked all over. I will admit there have been times when the thought of revenge has almost consumed...
