With Friday the 13th and Valentine's Day back-to-back, there was a double threat of possible kitschy articles that could have been written this week, especially with the release of that movie version of that book that everyone has so much interest in and that I don't know anything about.
Anyway, my wonderful staff dug in their heels and refused to write about Valentine's clichés, silly superstitions, and these six stories:
President Obama used a selfie stick and starred in a BuzzFeed video. [Buzzfeed]
Angelina Jolie announces the opening of the Center for Women, Peace, and Security. [HelloGiggles]
Ruth Bader Ginsburg says America is ready for gay marriage. [Bustle]
This year, 2015, will be Jon Stewart's last as host of The Daily Show. [Deadspin]
Jamie Dornan gave the details on sex-scene logistics using a genital-fruit analogy. [Defamer]
Brian Williams's six-month suspension was announced via open letter by NBC President, Deborah Turness. [NBC]
Do you think we missed any golden opportunities from the six links in this week's round up? Did you know a "pick six" is a very difficult play in football? Tell me what you would have written this week if you worked at xoJane and bestow upon me all of your sports knowledge (or anything else you want to talk about).
