Sorry, Miley — Rashida Jones doesn't have to show any skin to get our attention. In the piece she wrote for Glamour's January issue, Rashida shares her thoughts on slut-shaming, feminism, and that time she used the word "whore." And about 100 words in, she became the love of our lives. As Leslie Knope would say, Rashida, "you beautiful tropical fish," tell us more about female sexuality and the pornification of pop culture.
On our current era: "If 1994 was the Year of O.J.'s White Bronco, 2013 was the Year of the Very Visible Vagina."
On her controversial tweets: "I'm not gonna lie. The fact that I was accused of 'slut-shaming,' being anti-woman, and judging women's sex lives crushed me. I consider myself a feminist. I would never point a finger at a woman for her actual sexual behavior, and I think all women have the right to express their desires. But I will look at women with influence — millionaire women who use their 'sexiness' to make money — and ask some questions. There is a difference, a key one, between 'shaming' and 'holding someone accountable.'"
This week's celeb news takeaway: she who comes closest to showing the actual inside of her vagina is most popular. #stopactinglikewhores

On using the word "whore": "So back to the word whore. My hashtag was 'stopactinglikewhores.' Key word, acting. Like I said, I'm not criticizing anyone's real sex life; as George Michael tells us, 'Sex is natural, sex is fun.' But the poles, the pasties, the gyrating: this isn't showing female sexuality; this is showing what it looks like when women sell sex."
