Selena Gomez's music video

I am not familiar with this artist's music but I came across her music video on AOL. I am curious as to what y'all think about it. Is it resistant to racist and classist ideologies or is she just reproducing tired stereotypes about Latinas and domestic labor?

AOL "News"

When I am procrastinating doing my homework I occasionally read the AOL homepage. They always have little snippets of intriguing news. Gets me every time. There were a few I wanted to post. Don't have a lot of time for analysis but I really wanted to share.

First, fear not sexist republican voters. Sarah Palin is really just a figurehead. Her husband Todd is actually calling all the shots.

Second, drinking breast milk seems like a fine idea but what are the feminist ethical implications of paying women for their reproductive capacities?

Third, more fun with Photoshopping magazine covers.

Dr. Dominatrix

I had my first class of the quarter last night. Less than five minutes in the professor told us that she is a dominatrix and that she loves nothing more than watching her students suffer. And she was serious. This is going to be a rough quarter.
