Friendships — so difficult to maintain, so many variables and personalities. Well, thanks to a new service called RentAFriend, you can skip all the “getting to know you” stuff, and get straight to the hanging out. RentAFriend puts a transactional twist on platonic relationships by charging users to hang out with its “friends.” How it works: Users can put in their zip codes and find profiles of potential “friends” that live nearby. Profiles include the stuff that each particular “friend” is interested in doing, along with basic stats on them.
And then users arrange a “friend” hang-out. It’s more than a little weird. Keep reading »

Take a look at the above images of Mariah Carey: In one picture, she’s in an adorable crop top and shorts set. In the other, she’s decked out in pants and a long-sleeved shirt.

“I heard she put out a song that’s about me, or about some old habits or whatever. [And] I look at it like this: I’m just stoked that she finally has a song with some substance on her record. Good job.”
— Katy Perry’s ex, Travie McCoy, rips apart her new track, “Circle the Drain,” which is supposedly about his rampant drug use. McCoy, who used to be in Gym Class Heroes but is now rolling solo, supposedly also references Perry in his newest track, “Billionaire:” “You can call me Travie Claus minus the ‘Ho Ho’/Get it?” Oh Travie, we get it.
