Quote of the Day: Shailene Woodley on Jennifer Lawrence Comparisons

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Movies, Rivalries, Features,

Shailene Woodley and Jennifer Lawrence

"As women, we are constantly told that we need to compare ourselves to a girl in school, to our co-­workers, to the images in a magazine... How is the world going to advance if we’re always comparing ourselves to others? I admire Jennifer Lawrence, but she’s everyone’s favorite person to compare me to. Is it because we both have short hair and a vagina? I see us as separate individuals. And that’s important. As women, our insecurities are based on all these comparisons. And that creates distress."

- Divergent star Shailene Woodley explains why she told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that "Comparisons always lead to despair" when the SNL alum asked her how she feels being compared to Jennifer Lawrence (to which the audience booed at her response).

Carrie Underwood Rejects Taylor Swift Comparisons

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Country, Pop,

Taylor Swift and Carrie UnderwoodCarrie Underwood hates being compared to Taylor Swift.

The "Good Girl" singer thinks comparisons with fellow American country star Taylor, 22, are unfounded and claims their music and styles are "completely different."

"I feel like we're definitely completely different artists; that is something that's so cool about country music because everyone has their own thing. I'm a little bit older than she is and I feel like our music's completely different and if anyone tries to make any comparisons they really haven't listened to either one of us."

The American Idol winner added that "Love Story" hitmaker Taylor has a different approach to her records: "Our songs are definitely different. She sings a little bit lighter sometimes and it's just a difference in our brand of country."

Bleeding Edge TV 401: Apple iPhone 4S speed test - AT&T vs. Verizon

In this episode we compare the data speeds of the iPhone 4S, looking at Verizon and AT&T. As has been mentioned by Apple, the GSM version of the iPhone 4S supports the faster 14.4Mbps speeds that AT&T refers to as 4G (not to be confused with 4G LTE, as confusing as that may be.) The Verizon (and Sprint) model of the iPhone 4S doesn't support the faster speeds on those CDMA networks. We also compare the speed using the AT&T Microcell as well, which is a device you can buy from AT&T if you don't get great coverage in your home or workplace to boost your signal strength.
