  1. Teenage Armenian Girl Performs The Fifth Element’s “Diva Dance” on The Voice

    Multipass.

    Victoria Hovhannisyan is a famous soprano in Armenia. While Albanian soprano Inva Mula originally sang the Diva Plavalaguna's famous song for Luc Besson's The Fifth Element, Hovhannisyan, with her five-octave range, has also been known to favorite the "Diva Dance" tune (the first part of the song comes from the opera Lucia di Lammermoor). The clip above comes from when she performed on Russia's The Voice. The best is when you notice the judges know the movie by heart.

  2. The Mary Sue Interview: Code and Cupcakes Founder Jen Myers

    She quotes Kelly Sue DeConnick. We're smitten.

    "Being treated differently because you’re different is not something with strict boundary lines—it’s like colored dye dropped into water. It permeates everything until all you can see is the dye, and then how do you effectively separate what is dye and what is water? But you know it’s there. It is there."

  4. Subversive Power Armor Hardsuits for LEGO Friends to Wear Into Battle

    Pulverizing gender stereotypes, one fully weaponized minifig at a time.

    The LEGO Friends line of products is a black mark on LEGO's otherwise impressive recent record of gender-neutral marketing, but as the SuperFriends Project demonstrated earlier this year, just because the toys themselves might be less than awesome doesn't mean master builders can't give the minifigs a radical makeover.

    'Nuff said.

    Bad moments are sometimes the most important for us to write about here at The Mary Sue, but that doesn't mean everything is doom and gloom! We're all passionate geeks, and that means, above all else, loving things so much that we might actually explode.

  7. Disney World Gaston Tells Little Girl To Get Back In The Kitchen, She Gives Him What-For

    No one's a chauvinist like Gaston.

    Telling a little girl to make you a sandwich is incredibly insensitive, and I imagine Disney World advises its performers not to sacrifice common sense for authenticity; but still, this is an accurate portrayal of a very disconcerting villain. Gaston is Disney's first MRA.

    Not to kick Barbie when she's down or anything...

    We were already excited about the Lammily doll that was built from the CDC average proportions of a 19-year-old woman by artist Nickolay Lamm, but seeing it in the hands of second graders who are happy to finally have a doll that represents them is just amazing.
