Jimmy Kimmel’s No Doctor, But He Did Find The Cure For iOS 7-Induced Nausea

Apple’s latest operating system is divisive to a degree that’s usually reserved for politics. Some love it, some people loathe it, and others … well, it just makes them sick. One of iOS 7’s key differences from previous Apple interfaces is “parallax,” an unnecessary if hypnotizing feature that enables the icons on the screen to…

Prankster Rahat Puts A Seasonal Twist On The Drive-Through Prank Game

Mahat the Magician Prankster is Internet famous (to the tune of about 2.4 million YouTube followers) for his seemingly endless stream of prank videos. Some of his very best are part of the Drive Thru Magic Prank Series, which documents Rahat, or in some cases no Rahat (we’ll get to that later), playin’ tricks o…

Vanessa Hudgens Takes A Seasonal Hair Change Literally

Vanessa Hudgens has taken the concept of a seasonal hair switch-up to new heights by literally changing her hair color to match the season with a dye job that mimics the changing fall leaves. The actress posted this photo to Instagram alongside the caption, “Autumn hair ;),” which leads us to believe she’s well-aware of…

Paris Hilton Wants You To Know That She’s Having A “Good Time”

Are you having a “Good Time”? Because Paris Hilton is having a good time in her new music video teaser, complete with water guns, alcohol (she’s a bit tipsy!!!!), a pool, flashing lights, Lil Wayne … etcetera, etcetera. Watch the dragged-out atrophy of Weezy’s once-fruitful career in slow motion as he spits (more of a…

New York City Department Of Health Launches New NYC Girls Project

In the twelve years that Mayor Bloomberg has presided over New York City, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (srsly, that’s for real, MENTAL HYGIENE) has been responsible for quite a few not always-well-received ad campaigns. The words “controversial” and occasionally “insensitive” come to mind — hello, human fat being poured out of a

Rich People Tire Of Yachts, Move On To Luxury Submarines

Newsflash to nobody: crazy-rich people loooooove frivolous shit. After all, there are only so many practical items and experiences you can spend money on before it’s like, hey, bring on the fucking big cat room. (I know, I know, just because that’s what I would do with my extra millions doesn’t mean it applies to…

This Study Of Gendered Words Used On Facebook Looks Pretty Dismal On Both Ends

Gender stereotypes: let’s pretend, for a moment, that they exist for a reason, reason being that they are sometimes (sometimes) applicable. The largest analysis ever undertaken of words we use on Facebook, a socio-linguistic study published by researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and Cambridge University, produced “strong results” emerging from the analysis aligning with…

Publicist To The Stars Bryna Rifkin Caught At Her Most (?) Condescending

Some things witnessed secondhand are so cringeworthy as to incite actual physical pain, and this 53-second clip of Marion Cotillard‘s PR girl snubbing a soft-spoken reporter is of that very ilk. Bryna Rifkin of ID-PR, the publicist and red carpet handler for Cotillard as well as other well-liked celebs like Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jennifer Lawrence,…

Soul Stepper Arin Lawrence Talks That Awesome Rick Owens Fashion Show She Performed In

We were far from the only ones to be seriously stunned by Rick Owens’ above-and-beyond runway step show — it’s being called “one of the most innovative and exciting fashion shows” of recent recall. New York-based singer-songwriter Arin Lawrence, who performed as part of The Soul Steppers (just one of four groups featured in Owens’…

Shawn Carter Snags Vanity Fair Cover, Talks Bed-Stuy, Blue Ivy, And Bey

Jigga what? The Brooklyn-born rapper-turned-multimedia mogul, looking characteristically cleaned-up in a stark white suit, will line November newsstands on the cover of Vanity Fair. Jay Z has always given good interview, but a VF cover story is another matter entirely … and if the excerpts from the piece are any indication, Young Hov delivers. The…

Kids Who Begin Dating Earlier More Likely To Engage In Delinquent Behavior

I have been achingly cool for almost as long as I can remember, but circa fifth and sixth grade was the absolute low point of my coolness. I know it’s hard to imagine, but I was really, really lame — I’m talking Hot Topic wardrobe, greasy hair, Transitions lenses … it was a rough couple of…

Experience The Naked Haunted House From The Comfort Of Your Own Clothing (NSFW)

I, for one, would never even begin to entertain the idea of venturing naked into a haunted house. I’m scared enough being naked in my own bedroom by myself, let alone in the vicinity of strangers, and also while in a FUCKING HAUNTED HOUSE. Thanks but no thanks, Sinking Spring, PA, and your Naked and…

Poor Justin Bieber Needed To Be Carried Up The Great Wall Of China

Did Justin Bieber learn absolutely nothing from his interventional tête-à-tête with Zach Galifianakis last week? Yesterday’s visit to the Great Wall of China was a fantastic opportunity for the ol’ Biebs to score a bit of cultural enlightenment — hell, maybe the experience could even serve to humble the bratty pop star. Alas, in true…

NYC “Silver Man” Shares Some Words With A Security Guard

The “silver men” of Times Square and other such tourist hotspots have one job and one job only — to stand completely stationary, no moving, no blinking, like a statue, as droves of out-of-towners, some less affable than others, photograph, video tape, pose with, and otherwise dehumanize them. (And, no, that doesn’t even begin to…

Rihanna Swears She’s A “Square” Now; We’re Not Sure If We Believe Her

“Recently I’ve become a square … I hate partying. I don’t know if it’s my heels — I don’t like standing up in my heels for hours. I don’t know if it’s that, but I’ve been so bored of it … I tell you, I’m a bit of a square recently. Don’t feel bad for…

Rick Owens Goes For The Unconventional Route With His Latest Show In Paris

My sincerest apologies to those designers who were scheduled to show on the last four days of Paris Fashion Week. You’re all going to need to go home now; Rick Owens just killed the damn thing. The avant-garde designer, beloved for his “luxury gothic” sensibility and his most glorious leather jackets, eschewed all traditional runway…

I’m So Disappointed That Dolce & Gabbana’s $4,150 Crown Is Sold Out

In the context of fashion, the term “aspirational” only goes so far. A $500 pair of shoes, a $1,000 dress, a $2,000 purse: these things are aspirational, to be sure. But a $4,150 Dolce & Gabbana gold-plated Swarovski crystal crown? That veers straight off the track of aspirations and directly into “fucking ridiculous” territory. Which…

Cher’s List Of “25 Things” Is Amazing Beyond My Wildest Dreams

There are very few earthbound humans (to my knowledge, at least) who do eccentric better than Cher. At age 67, with over 40 years in the industry under her belt, she’s as fabulously nutty as ever, and has just released her first album in 12 years. To wit: Us Weekly has a typically unremarkable celebrity-penned…

Blake Lively And Her New Company Want To Teach You How To “Curate” Your Life

Ah, yes, just what the Internet needs: one more myopic blonde celebrity so enamored of her perfect, precious life that she’s deluded into genuinely believing that she can help you, yes, you, you darling humble peon, attain a similar perfect, precious, curated life. (Aw, it’s so cute how you can’t even curate your own life!)…
