WHAT WITH HEART-SHAPED balloons, overpriced roses and two-for-one meal deals, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have the best reputation these days. But in this week’s issue, our fashion and beauty teams track down the underwear and treats you’ll want to be using well after the day itself is a distant memory. And even if you, like me, have no plans to celebrate Valentine’s Day outside of a takeaway and Netflix session with Cheer, you might want to get an insight into Millennials and sex with our piece on page 40. Are you having enough? Let us know! @hattie_brett / feedback@graziamagazine.co.uk…

What saddens me most is that many young women have lost the art of rebellion. Remember a youthful Madonna strutting through Desperately Seeking Susan? Siouxsie Sioux rocking glam goth? Or Justine Frischmann fronting an androgynous indie swagger? Let’s bring back creativity! Sarah CHEERS TO THAT! I, too, used to cheer on an all-girl squad and it’s a true sport that empowers women (‘There’s a dark side to cheerleading…

letter of the week

MAKE OR BREAK Your article ‘Things you only know if… you’ve thought about leaving your husband but stayed’ (10 Feb) struck a chord with me. I was in this situation with my husband of 15 years – I loved him and I’d put so much into the relationship but, on the other hand, would I continue to get hurt if I stayed? I’m relieved to say we gave it another shot. Does it sound trite to say we fell in love with each other all over again? That was six years ago. Yes, we still have our bad days, but I know for sure I’m with the man I want to be with for the rest of my life. And it took nearly breaking up to realise that. Tijhana…

Stop policing women’s clothing “Scandal hit the House of Commons last week, so shocking it provoked angry tweets and made headlines around the country. No, it wasn’t an act of violence – it was, apparently, worse than that. A female MP, Tracey Brabin, wore a top that revealed her shoulder. The response? She was called a ‘slag’, a ‘tart’, a ‘slapper’ and was accused of looking like she’d been ‘banged over a wheelie bin’. In comparison, when male politicians’ attire isn’t up to standards, we roll our eyes. When it comes to women’s clothing, the fact that insults are gendered and degrading reeks of everyday sexism. So next time someone tries to police what we wear, we know what to do – give them the cold shoulder.”…

why taylor swift makes me want to be a better person

I WATCHED ‘MISS AMERICANA’, the new Taylor Swift documentary, this weekend. I laughed, cried, revisited a longstanding theory re: how criminally undervalued good pop music is – how effortlessly it takes huge feelings, compresses them into easily digested, high-octane morsels of what might seem like nothing much if they weren’t also shaking your very soul – but mainly, I thought: blow me! She’s human. A forceful, vulnerable, rabid contradiction, who makes no sense, but also, all sense, is as filled with anxiety as she is boundless ambition, carries her cat in a Perspex backpack and worries about gay rights and performs in front of a kajillion people like it’s nothing, but gets an eating disorder, because how else does anyone sensibly respond to her level of scrutiny? Eh? If I’ve learned anything…
