Who said wearing your wedding dress had to be a one-off deal? Not Keira Knightley, that’s for sure. The actress, who wed musician James Righton this past May (center), rocked her repurposed wedding dress at an event in London last night (left). Worn over some sort of long-sleeved mesh garment, the Chanel frock looked pretty… READ MORE »

Hey guys, meet your first black girlfriend! Her name is Akilah Hughes, and she’s a writer and comedienne. Lucky for you, this isn’t her first time at the interracial relationship rodeo — so she knows exactly what to say when it comes to the “unspoken anxiety” and those “cringe-worthy moments” that are pretty much an… READ MORE »

Aw, Internet, you’re so cute sometimes, like when Lindsay Lohan posts a topless photo to Instagram and you start seeing nipples where there are none. Adorable, right? Or is that delusional? Not sure. Blurred lines, there. … READ MORE »

The seemingly innocuous topic of Jay Z’s limited edition holiday collection in collaboration with Barneys turned rife with controversy in the past few weeks after the upscale NYC department store was accused of two separate racial profiling incidents in the last month alone. Everyone from Jon Stewart to Andre Leon Talley criticized the hip-hop mogul’s… READ MORE »

A few months ago at my parents’ house I was rifling through a drawer full of tokens of my adolescence (read: a bunch of old stuff my mom has failed to throw away) and happened to discover a mood ring. It was in the shape of a dolphin and I was beside myself with glee. READ MORE »

There’s no questioning whether or not everybody loves Jennifer Lawrence, or whether or not she is deserving of this widespread love. She’s beautiful but in a way that seems of this earth, genuinely, unabashedly funny, compassionate, and eschews the starving-starlet mold — essentially, everything the America of 2013 wants out of a female celebrity. But… READ MORE »

Not cute: Hitler. So cute it should be condemned: Patch, the puppy who bears an irrefutable, if unfortunate, resemblance to the Nazi leader. With his black “mustache” and a large dark area covering the left side of his head, the French bulldog/shih tzu cross could almost be mistaken for the dictator, if he weren’t a… READ MORE »

Brace yourselves, fellow animal lovers (dogs over humans any day, am I right?), because this story isn’t about to go down without a tear in the house. Jon Byler Dann, his wife, and their four young children took to their basement for refuge from the deadly storm that annihilated their hometown of Washington, Ill. The… READ MORE »

“YouTube pranks” is one of my least favorite word combinations in all of the English language lexicon, so I couldn’t tell you why I deigned to watch this one. Roman Atwood is what people here on the Internet are apparently calling an “infamous” “YouTube” “prankster” who pulls “classic” “nasty” “pranks.” … READ MORE »

The first thing I did after watching this video was hit up Google with the question, “is holland racist.” Perhaps not the best-formed inquiry, as far as reading comprehension goes, but a valid question nonetheless. It does, indeed, seem that the Netherlands might have a history of being a little racist, considering hundreds just recently… READ MORE »

Do you know this actress’s name? It’s not a big deal if you don’t. I didn’t, until I used Google, which is what you do when you don’t know a famous person’s name and you’re going to write about them on the Internet, right? I can tell you who she isn’t, though, and that’s actor… READ MORE »

For the most part, Elle’s list of “top fashion trends” for this autumn reads like any other: nautical, punk, pastels, Victorian, and Wednesday Addams are all fairly standard fodder for style inspiration. But one of these things is not like the others, and that thing would be “North Korea Chic,” which creative director Joe Zee… READ MORE »

“Call me Gabe Day, and not Gabe Day-Lewis/’cause if you’re trying to call me out, I’m about to Gabe Day-Lose it,” raps Gabe Day, son of, um, Daniel Day-Lewis in the “official” music video for his song “Green Auras.” See for yourself, as I am rendered completely unable to parse ANYTHING going on here at… READ MORE »

It’s about time Bob Dylan released a music video for “Like a Rolling Stone,” which only came out, oh, nigh 50 years ago. Is it possible that he could have been working on this very thing for the past 48 years? Possible, sure, but not likely. The interactive video, which I imagine is the first… READ MORE »

I’ve been surfing the web all day (just doing, ahem, my job) and have witnessed a myriad of very mixed reactions to Jennifer Lawrence’s latest look. Some love it, some think it’s just alright, some think it is an absolute TRAVESTY. But we’re pretty unanimous over here — Amelia and I both love it. Jen… READ MORE »

I’m going to be honest, I didn’t even watch this video with the sound on. Why bother? I already know the song, and frankly, sometimes I’m just not in any mood to listen to Kanye West’s voice. So what we have here is the music video for “Bound 2,” the last track on Yeezus, which… READ MORE »

Brooklyn does it best, and making my borough of residence proud (or, uh, something like that, I think) today is Scott Wiener, who was just crowned with the Guinness World Record for “Largest Collection of Pizza Boxes.” The competition must have been stiff for that title! Needless to say, Wiener is really, really passionate about… READ MORE »

OH MY GOD, YOU GUYS. I have no idea why this video, which is almost a year old, has just begun making the mass rounds on the internet, but it is NOT TO BE MISSED. It’s 44 seconds of a DOLPHIN IN AN AQUARIUM MASTURBATING WITH A BEHEADED FISH, why would you ever not want… READ MORE »
