    “I want them all!”

    Alice Mongkongllite / BuzzFeed

    Emma Watson is exactly the kind of woman you want on your team — intelligent, talented, and most of all, a HUGE lover of animals. In celebration of her new movie Beauty and the Beast (in theaters March 17), we sat down with the star of Disney's iconic remake to chat film, feminism, and of course...kittens! All questions were submitted by members of the BuzzFeed Community.

    Did you take anything from the set of Beauty and the Beast as a souvenir? —Tori Holder, Facebook

    Emma Watson: We designed for Belle this ring that would sit on her little finger. The costume designer saw that I had one which my mom had given to me, and she was like, "Can I design one for Belle?" because Belle's mother dies when she's really young. My mom is still alive and healthy and well, just as a side note. Anyway, I was really proud of the ring and thought it was so beautiful that I asked if I could keep one and they said I could.

    Yes, even your vibrator might be spying on you.

    A sex toy company has agreed to pay $3.75 million for secretly collecting customers' data while they were using its vibrators.

    Under the agreement, We-Vibe will set aside about $3 million for people who downloaded and used an app that accompanied the vibrator and about $750,000 for customers who just bought its "smart vibrator" before Sept. 26, 2016. Those who controlled the toy with the We-Connect app will get up to $10,000 each, while those who just used the vibrator will get up to $199.

    However, people will probably receive much less due to fees, administration costs, and the number of claims submitted.

    The amount of the actual payment to Class members will depend on the number of claims submitted and the total amount available in the respective settlement funds after applicable notice and administration costs, the incentive award, and attorney fees have been paid.

    The high-end vibrators are designed for couples, enabling partners to text and video chat on the app, as well as adjust and control the toy through Bluetooth. But what they didn't know was that the Canadian company was tracking how they used their devices, including intimate details like the time and date, the vibration intensity, temperature, and pattern, court documents show.

    We-Vibe's app, We-Connect

    We-Vibe

    The company, which has denied wrongdoing and liability, said it will destroy most of the information it collected.

    A woman from Chicago, identified as N.P., sued Standard Innovation Corp., which owns We-Vibe, company back in September. She bought a Rave vibrator for $130 last May and frequently used the app, but said she was never notified We-Vibe was monitoring her. Another woman joined the complaint last month. They both claimed that the "highly offensive" secret data collection caused embarrassment and anxiety.

    The women also say We-Vibe violated the Federal Wire Tap Act and privacy law, and made money at their expense.

    "(N.P.) would never have purchased a We-Vibe had she known that in order to use its full functionality, (Standard Innovation) would monitor, collect and transmit her usage information through We-Connect," the claim states.

    About 300,000 people purchased We-Vibe devices covered by the settlement, and about 100,000 downloaded and used the app, according to court documents.

    We-Vibe said in a statement to BuzzFeed News that it collected "certain analytical information to help us improve our products and the quality" of its app and that users could opt out of this.

    The company has now agreed to clarify and be more transparent about its privacy notices and data collecting practices.

    Going forward, customers no longer have to register, create an account, or share their personal information. They can also opt out of sharing anonymous app usage data, the company said, noting that they now have "new plain language privacy notices" that outline "how we collect and use data for the app to function and improve We-Vibe products."

    “Speed Secrets” – the amazing true story of two clueless idiots who accidentally became NASCAR fans.

    Hi we’re Lauren and Jack. We are literal idiots from New York City who don’t know a goddamn thing about NASCAR. But when we got an opportunity to see the the Daytona 500, aka The Great American Race, we decided to go and see what all the fuss was about.

    Because for every person who says this joke (which is a lot of people for how dumb of a joke it is!):

    There is someone else who feels this way:

    Anyway, spoiler alert: After 24 hours of nonstop car stuff, we went from being skeptical and confused to loving NASCAR like Kyle Busch loves being a sore loser (that's a NASCAR joke!) This was our journey:

    Margarita queen.

    If you didn't already know, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and obviously countless others are down (or up!) in New Zealand filming A Wrinkle In Time, directed by Ava DuVernay. They are having a bomb-ass time.

    instagram.com

    It's possible that Oprah is having the best time though.

    instagram.com

    Like, the very best time.

    And yesterday, when the crew decided to have a party, it was only fitting that Oprah made and served up some margs for everyone. Makes sense cause it was also national Margarita day. Or in this case international.

    Here’s what you need to know about the ~magical~ ingredient that’s popping up everywhere.

    Charlotte Gomez / BuzzFeed

    It's a fancy word for the liquid inside a can of chickpeas. Turns out that the stuff that you might normally just throw away is a ~magic juice~ of sorts: It acts as a binding/thickening agent, is a vegan-friendly egg substitute, and lends itself perfectly to everything from breakfast staples, to condiments, to whipped desserts — along with almost any other recipe where you might want to go egg-less.

    So, how do you even eat this stuff?

    Pinterest

    Working it into recipes is super simple. First, just drain chickpea liquid into a bowl.
