No Filter: Oh God Tegan And Sara Are Ruining My Life In These Masks

Welcome back to No Filter, Autostraddle dot com’s top source for finger-on-the-pulse celebrity happenings. This week, a lot of gossip blogs told me that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were secretly aching to get back together, which doesn’t sound super true. In lieu of that, here’s a bunch of famous people having a much better day than we are! Let’s get to it.
Here are Ingrid Nilsen and Jules Kutner, pretending love isn’t a lie.

Are you ready for the new season of Orange Is The New Black? I’m incredibly not ready. Look at these faces!! Who could be ready?!? Dascha Ponanco is busy looking extremely mysterious.

Allegedly these two are dating! Look at those two symmetrical faces next to each other! That could be a thing, alright!

Amandla Stenberg graduated, probably played that Vitamin C song like 800 times.
Just thought I’d sneak this picture of some really goodlooking A-Camp staff into this week’s edition.
If you’re into imagining being in a video game where you fight Demi Lovato, this video is definitely for you.

Seems like a good time to appreciate these two and all they have to offer. Yes I am using Samira Wiley as a coping mechanism this week, why do you ask?
I’m really upset.

Join us next week, when no matter what we choose to focus on, these Tegan and Sara masks will follow us forever.

  1. Lauren Morelli always looks like she’s being electrocuted by love, but, like, in a good way. I enjoy it.

    • right? like also the thing where you come out and then immediately fall ass over teakettle for samira wiley and then just show up places laughing wearing pretty dresses! ugh damn. maybe I should think about my life/think about my choices.

  2. maybe this isn’t the place to ask, but I have an appointment tomorrow and I need help choosing a gay AF haircut for curly hair and an oval-ish face? any instagram inspiration for me, friends?

  3. I never thought this would happen to me, but I think in going to have nightmares about Tegan and Sara tonight.

    • Oh god, and now I’ve submitted a comment with a big typo in it and my OCD knows it’s there and I can’t fix it. Goodbye, Autostraddle. It’s been lovely knowing you.

  4. Thank god for this column because my heart can’t handle reading more Orlando coverage right now. Samira Wiley makes everything better

  5. that Demi Lovato video made me jealous. I could have used some recreational punching of things this week.
