ED­I­TOR’S POV

Elle (Canada) - - Radar -

I’d like to sug­gest that we get rid of a phrase I used to abuse but now ab­hor: “girl crush.” The sen­ti­ment be­hind a good old-fash­ioned “OMG, I’m, like, to­tally ob­sessed with her” feel­ing is real and awe­some, but the word “crush” im­plies that we’re car­ry­ing an ac­tual ro­man­tic flame for a woman (Can you imag­ine? Oh, right, lots of peo­ple do.), and re­fer­ring to women as girls is very “Don Draper’s typ­ing pool.” We’re bet­ter than that. KATHRYN HUD­SON

MUST- READ Kim Gor­don—who pi­o­neered the sound of a gen­er­a­tion in Sonic Youth be­fore be­com­ing a fash­ion icon, ac­tress and now an au­thor— opens up about her child­hood, rise to fame and back­stage mem­o­ries in her raw and com­pelling Girl in a Band.
