Amanda Seyfried Wears A Dainty Dress While Raven-Symoné Just Throws Some Random Shizz On For The Way We Get By

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionRaven SymoneAmanda SeyfriedRed CarpetChristian LouboutinOscar de la Renta

Amanda Seyfried and Raven Symone are style opposites on the red carpet.

Was there a dress code for this event???

If there was, it probably said something like, "wear whatever the hell you want!"

That would explain why Amanda Seyfried and Raven-Symoné took such drastically different approaches to clothing at opening night for The Way We Get By in New York on Tuesday.

Amanda looked simply pretty in a white and gold black and blue Oscar de la Renta floral print cocktail dress and black Christian Louboutin pumps.

Yet Raven's style couldn't have been more opposite to the blonde actress' — the former Disney star paired baggy camouflage pants with a madras blazer and Doc Marten combat boots featuring a print of Hieronymous Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights.

Hieronymous Bosch! On shoes!

That's about as weird as weird gets! But also kind of awesome in its insanity.

Raven-Symoné Doesn't Think Harriet Tubman Should Be On The $20 Bill Because She's Not Progressive Enough?!

| Filed under: PolitikRaven SymoneMichelle ObamaControversy

That's so Raven?!

Recently, a grassroots campaign called "Women On 20s" started a viral frenzy when they proposed that former president Andrew Jackson be taken off the $20 bill and replaced with African-American abolitionist Harriet Tubman — who during the 1800s used the Underground Railroad to rescue approximately seventy family and friends from slavery.

Well apparently Tubman's work just doesn't impress Raven-Symoné!

On Wednesday's episode of The View, the former child star revealed that she didn't like the idea of putting the historical legend on such currency!

She said:

"No offense to everyone that's going to be mad at me for saying this, I don't like that idea… I think we need to move a little bit more forward. Let me just preface that I understand the history, I get it, trust me, I was taught, I was in that culture… I would've chosen Rosa Parks."

As to why she would've chosen Parks over Harriet Tubman, the 29-year-old believes the former is more progressive and more in-line with our current political landscape:

Raven-Symoné Reveals She Started Wearing Spanx At 14! Find Out The Shocking Reason Why HERE!

Wow. We had absolutely no idea.

While on The View this Wednesday, Raven-Symoné shared a new tidbit about her life in the spotlight as a child actor.

And it was all because Spanx's controversial body shaping campaign was brought up.

The Empire starlet revealed:

"I've been wearing Spanx since I was about 14 years old. I was a lot heavier when I was younger and when you're heavy in the industry, you have to look a certain way. I used to put on two or three Spanx at a time and then a minimizer."

To think that she had body image issues at such a young age really breaks our heart, all while being in the spotlight on Disney's That's So Raven!

We can't imagine.

Is Raven-Symoné The Latest Tribute Being Offered Up To The View Gods?

| Filed under: TV NewsWhoopi GoldbergRaven Symone

This news is quite raven.

Following her guest hosting gig back in March, it looks like Raven-Symoné is up for a more permanent gig on The View.

That's because we're hearing that ABC is very intent on getting the Disney star to join the panel next to Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez, and Nicolle Wallace. And they're trying to make it happen before their May 12th upfronts in New York!

We're totally into this news, because during her short time on the show, the 29-year-old managed to stay charismatic while unafraid to share her slightly controversial thoughts on race and sexuality.

Whether or not you agree with Raven's stance that saying Michelle Obama looked like a monkey from Planet of The Apes wasn't racist, you have to give the Cosby Show star props for not backing down!

We think Raven would be a perfect fit for the show, especially because we're not getting very much from Rosie and Nicolle; it's pretty much just Whoopi's show at the moment.

Would U tune into The View if Raven was a permanent host??

Ooh! Raven-Symoné's not afraid to get edgy!

While one may think we're referencing her recent controversial comments, we're just talking about the Empire actress' new 'do!

She recently debuted platinum tresses with shaved sides, but as she made her way onto the set of The View in NYC on Thursday, she gave us an entirely different look!

Are you seeing her crimped mohawk?? That's so not like Raven!

Bad joke, but at least her hair is fierce just like the rest of her outfit!

She posted a picture of the two of them on Instagram and wrote:

Here's a new opinion on this.

Raven-Symoné was a guest host on The View on Monday, and the topic of a now-fired TV host calling Michelle Obama a Planet of the Apes cast member.

Well, the actress had a different take on the situation. Co-host Rosie Perez was adamant that it was a racist comment made, asserting that there is racism against black people in the Hispanic community.

However, Raven didn't see it that way. She said:
