No Filter: Not Only Can Cara Delevingne Read Books, She Wrote One

Welcome back to No Filter, our weekly frolic through the fields of celesbian Instagram. This week, one of those Australian Bachelor ladies did a topless photo shoot and I was going to link to a source that isn’t the Daily Mail but it seems like nobody else quite had their fingers on the pulse of whatever’s going on with those two. Anyway, they’ve broken up and now this is happening. Also, TMZ thinks this (alleged) lesbian is ready for spring, and that she finally looks like “an actual Kardashian/Jenner sister,” whatever that means (what does that mean?). Give us your theories in the comments.

Anyway, we’ve got a lot of important matters at hand so let’s check in with everyone else who’s ready for spring.

First and foremost, YES I DO SEE A LITTLE GIRL IN JANELLE MONÁE’S KNEE. Moreover, Janelle does not seem to deny this allegation.

I have no witty comment about this photograph, I just wanted you to be aware of Brittani Nichols looking cute in swimwear.

Another pinch me moment!! Announcing my first novel Mirror, Mirror, coming out this October! SO EXCITED !!! Mirror, Mirror is a twisty coming-of-age story about sixteen year old friends Red, Leo, Naima and Rose who are all trying to figure out who they are and navigate the minefield of school and relationships. Until it all changes one day… (que scary music 😵) I love these characters so much, I love what they stand for, what this story represents. The process of putting this novel together has been life changing and something I hold really close to my heart!! I cannot wait to share with everyone! You can pre-order Mirror, Mirror now by clicking on the link in my bio… lets start one big virtual book club!!! Cause I want us to talk about this time in life, self discovery, friendship, pain, triumph!! Being a teenager!! The experiences that shape YOU! #MirrorMirror

Hey, remember when Cara was in Paper Towns and a sexist interviewer asked her if she had read the book? WELL SHE WROTE ONE.
Evan Rachel Wood Bisexual’s band were on the Tonight Show, playing their new song “Today.” The least surprising thing about this video is the fact that Evan has a lava lamp in her practice space.
Very Famous Millennial eats ice cream.

It feels slightly rude for Torraine to be this goodlooking.

Jen Richards and Sara Ramirez went on a hike because in LA nobody walks unless it’s a hike, and it’s not a hike unless you take pictures.

Hahahahahaha what’s Queen Latifah doing in this column?!

My office: where I write and they nap. ❤

I’ve been dealing with serious decorating envy ever since Lauren Morelli posted this photo and I’m honestly still reeling. This does not look like an ideal place to work but it does look like a perfect nap space.

  1. jesus literally the only thing that would motivate me to hike faster than my natural strolling speed is to keep up with jen richards and sara ramirez to be like HI GUYS WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT COOL DON’T MIND ME I’LL JUST BE BREATHING HEAVILY IN THE BACKGROUND BECAUSE OF THIS MOUNTAIN WE’RE RUNNING UP.

    or actually, I think ppl hike canyons in LA? It’s confusing, I live where there are mountains and a 6 hour hike is a casual thing and there are no canyons. (and I’m like oh yeah cool hiking me too and then go like twice a year, under duress)

    • Yes, because there are trails. Some are loops, others you get to the top and then walk back. There are trails that could be done in like 2 hours, or less if you walk at a moderate pace(say speed walking it).

  2. “Hahahahahaha what’s Queen Latifah doing in this column?!”

    Seriously. I love this running joke. I literally LOL (as in, outloud) every time.

    Dear humans of Autostraddle, what is Queen Latifah doing in this column?? LOL LOL LOL LOL

    (As an aside, loved seeing Sara Ramirez in this week’s column. Would love to see more of her, please!)

  3. I don’t know if I believe in ghosts but it’s a good excuse to gaze meticulously at Janelle Monae’s knees.

  4. Yeah, sorry, no.
    I don’t think Cara is stupid by any means, but she did not write this book. Writing fiction takes time. Go look at Cara’s instagram and tell me if she has the time to write 80k words or so.
    They even mention her ghostwriter in the Bookseller article
    It’s great if some tweens read the book & it makes them feel better about being queer/ questioning, but let’s not pretend this is a literary achievement on Cara’s part. There are many good books by queer women aleady out there and she would have done better to set up an LGBTQ book club for her fans.

  5. Is it really that big of a deal to ask an actor if they’ve read the book? I’ve heard that question in a lot of interviews and sometimes the answer is no, especially with long fantasy stuff like Game of Thrones/ASOIAF.

    I feel like Cara came off as kind of grumpy and not wanting to be there from the beginning of that interview.
