Would you do anything to be popular in high school—even if it means pretending that you and your best friend are a lesbian couple? That’s the main question in MTV’s new hit romantic comedy series Faking It. And even better, Her Campus had the opportunity to sit down with the hilarious and excited leading ladies, Rita Volk and Katie Stevens, to chat about the show, the funny story of how they met and the super delicious food table (cookies, anyone?). Her Campus: What’s the premise behind Faking It?
Earlier today, TMZ first broke the news that Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington died by suicide at age 41. He is survived by his wife and six children.

Their first album Hybrid Theory was certified platinum , and they were nominated six times at the Grammy Awards, taking home the win twice.
One Instagrammer is taking on the problems with clothing sizes in a viral post. Last week, Instagram user Katy posted a photo of herself trying on two pairs of jeans at an Express clothing store and pointed out a glaring problem: They were both labeled size 10 low-rise leggings, but they fit her body entirely differently. One pair was slightly too big, while the other pair couldn't even fit over her thighs. Despite the discrepancy, she wasn't the least bit fazed.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
