Breaking News: I Am Pretty Sure This Is Not A Photo Of Lindsay Lohan’s Nipple

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.

Who Will Buy The Insanely Priced Pieces From Jay Z’s Barneys Collection?

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’…

Hi-Tech “Mood Sweater” Changes Color According To Your Emotions

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.

Julia Roberts Says Jennifer Lawrence Is Too “Cool” To Assume America’s Sweetheart Title

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…

Poor Patch The Puppy Has To Go Around Looking Like Adolf Hitler All The Time

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…

Illinois Family Reunites With Beloved Dog Thought Lost In Devastating Tornado

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…

Telling Your Girlfriend You Cheated As A “Prank” Is A Bad Idea Any Way You Swing It

“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.”…

“Holland’s Got Talent” Judge Makes A Few Too Many Cringeworthy Racist Jokes

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…

Armani Mislabels Black Actress Alfre Woodard As Black Actor Idris Elba On Instagram

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…

Elle Magazine Promotes “North Korea Chic” As Hot Fall Trend

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…

Daniel Day-Lewis’ Son Is A Rapper Who Wants You To Know That He Smokes Weed

“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…

Bob Dylan Finally Releases A Video For “Like A Rolling Stone”

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…

Well Played: Jennifer Lawrence Is Lovely In … Some Kind Of Netting (Plus, All Of Her “Catching Fire” Red Carpet Looks!)

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. Je…

Kanye West’s New Video For “Bound 2″ Features Horses, Topless Kim Kardashian

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…

Brooklyn Man Gets Guinness World Record Recognition For Largest Collection Of Pizza Boxes

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…

This Is A Video Of A Dolphin Masturbating With A Dead Fish

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…

“Fifty Shades” Fanfic Makes BDSM Fantasy Out Of Rihanna And Chris Brown Abuse

I have just one word for “author” J. Lola: taste. In this context, it is defined as the ability to make discerning judgments about aesthetic, artistic, and intellectual matters, and this J. Lola here has approximately none of it. Lola’s e-book, “Fifty Shades of Sin,” will run you 99 cents for your Amazon Kindle and,…

13 Of The Most WTF Looks From The 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show won’t air on television until December 10, so if you’re the type of person that likes to see the looks live for the first time (do those people exist?), SPOILER ALERT. Sexiness is in the eye of the beholder, to be certain, but if these over-the-top outfits are the brand’…

Cross-Eyed Fashion Model Moffy Makes Waves With Magazine Cover

Fashion as an industry is rarely lauded for its acts of inclusion, be it based on race, weight, or perceived physical flaws. But one thing it seems they’ll make an exception for is strabismus, better known as crossed eyes, at least in the case of “accidental model” Moffy.

Sneak Peek: Check Out The First Trailer For Disney’s “Maleficent”

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s character poster release, we’ve got ahold of the first trailer for “Maleficent.” Angelina Jolie stars in this new-perspective retelling of Disney’s 1959 take on “Sleeping Beauty” based on the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, in which the Mistress of All Evil places a slumbering curse on the beautiful Prince…
