Mental Floss Is Buoyed by Online Video

nytimes.com — For decades, magazine editors often relied on a handful of maxims to attract readers: Young is better than old. Pretty is better than ugly. Rich is better than poor. Film stars outsell television and music stars. Anything sells better than politics, and nothing sells better than a dead celebrity.

If you click on Jennifer Lawrence's naked pictures, you're perpetuating her abuse

theguardian.com — The price of fame is always increased scrutiny, but for any celebrity who does venture out in public, mere scrutiny has now given way to ongoing surveillance. The need for privacy is not only a sacred place to work out who we are, what we do or how we think; it's a psychological refuge from overwhelming public dissection necessary for anyone's mental health, famous or not.
