I love my friends, really. But there are times when, despite my best efforts, I cannot get it together to hang out. I know you’ve been there. Maybe it’s because the weather is crappy, or you’re just feeling off. Or maybe it’s because — and let’s get real honest about this — there’s a marathon… READ MORE »

Richard Cohen is a columnist for the Washington Post. He’s also a Roman Polanski apologist, a Clarence Thomas apologist, and a man who’s been personally called out for lewd behavior in front of a 23-year-old aide. So it’s no surprise that Cohen has absolutely nothing good to say about Miley Cyrus and her much ballyhooed twerk-happyREAD MORE »

Miranda Kerr, Victoria’s Secret model and submissive wife to Orlando Bloom, posed for the new issue of V Magazine as La Cicciolina. Who’s that, you ask? Just a famous ’70s porn star/Italian politician, who famously gave her political stump speeches with one breast out. Cicciolina, real name Ilona Staller, was elected to Italy’s parliament in 1987,… READ MORE »

They say those that cannot paint, write. Well, not actually. But as someone with absolutely zero artistic talent, I’m in awe of this monkey’s prize-winning artwork. Brent, a chimpanzee who lives at Chimp Haven in Louisiana, was awarded a $10,000 prize for his painting. Thirty-seven-year-old Brent is a retired lab monkey, who now lives at… READ MORE »

Let’s face it. We’re not all Alexa Chungs who can wear skintight overalls and look adorable and comfortable doing it. The overalls trend is not for everyone, but it can be — if you’re willing to be a bit creative about it. I’m not going to try straight up overalls, but an overall dress? That’s… READ MORE »

There’s a lot of things you could say about Parker Posey, but you’d certainly have to agree that the woman knows how to live. Look at her here, strolling down the sidewalk in NYC, yapping on the phone to her best gay friend, sipping on some iced coffee.

There’s really only one man who can get away with wearing a blouse, and that’s Mr. Purple Rain himself, Prince. Nearly 30 years after “Purple Rain” debuted, Prince is still killing it style-wise, and the recent Twitter convert’s music is still as relevant and sexy as ever. Seriously, did you hear his new track, “BreakfastREAD MORE »

On the one hand, summer holidays are awesome. On the other, Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of the season. So while we’re stoked to have Monday off, we’re not so excited about the prospect of colder days and wearing more layers. It’s with that in mind that we made this Summer Bummer mix,… READ MORE »

This one’s an oldie but a goodie: Riot grrl hero and fellow Colonel Mustard fan Kathleen Hanna is the woman responsible (in small part, anyway) for the epic Nirvana song “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” In this clip from her 2010 performance at Joe’s Pub in NYC, Hanna tells the story of hanging out with Kurt,… READ MORE »

Sometimes you’re like, “Geez, I really wish I could enjoy a healthy, invigorating steam while watching ‘Rizzoli & Isles’ in my living room.”  You are always saying that and you know it! Too bad you — and “Rizzoli & Isles” — weren’t around in 1983, when some monster took it upon himself to invent a… READ MORE »

Of all the international film festivals, we imagine that the Venice International Film Festival is the tastiest. That’s because it’s centered in Venice, which is home to some of the best pizza and gelato on the planet. Not that we could imagine attendees like Frieda Pinto and Carey Mulligan partaking, per se. No, no, they’re… READ MORE »

I consider Lil Bub meeting Grumpy Cat as akin as to when Churchill met with Roosevelt. The two greatest cat powers on the continent, combining forces for cuteness. Watch as Bub and Grumps warily address one another at the second annual Internet Cat Festival in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This is my couch space, Bub says, tongue out,… READ MORE »

Jessica is out on vacation this week, and that’s left me to cover the amazingly cute panda cub beat. I don’t mind though, because these twin panda cubs, born at the Atlanta Zoo, exist somewhere on the scale between mind-blowingly cute and breathtakingly adorable. The little buggers are about a month old, and weigh just… READ MORE »
