God, James effing Franco. I hate James Franco so much. Why? James Franco believes — and the world seems to be all too happy to confirm — that he is smarter and more clever and funnier than he really is. He is not any of those things! It’s a conspiracy! Don’t believe it, people! Look, James Franco happens to be very good at one thing: being very, very attractive. James Franco has been riding on his pretty points for a long time now, and I’m so over it. His art sucks, his performance art sucks, his writing certifiably sucks, and judging from his nearly-unlistenable musical collaboration with performance artist Kalup Linzy, he is terrible at music, too. Stop the madness! Do not perpetuate this fallacy of Franco as some kind of genius renaissance mouse or something. He’s just a very hot dude who has used his prettiness to pull a sham on the world.

It appears that Tea Leoni and David Duchovny will soon be a folder in the Ex Files. (Bad pun. Sorry, had to.) After 14 years of marriage, the two have separated. Again.

Apparently, it didn’t last.
I love these two together, so am sad about this split. But since there’s no use crying over spilled milk, here, who we think David should date next. Keep reading »
“I’m gonna be 30. I can’t wait because 29 is very strange. You’re still in your 20s but you feel like you’re supposed to be 30, and I feel like a woman. I feel like 30 is the ideal age because you’re mature enough to know who you are and to have your boundaries and your standards and not be afraid of [being] too polite. But you’re young enough to be a young woman, and I’m so looking forward to it. I always said I would have a baby at 30. But I also said I was gonna retire at 30. So I don’t know. I’m not retiring, I’ll tell you.”
—Beyoncé talks to Piers Morgan about her new album 4 and the big birthday that is right around the corner in September. I gotta agree with you, ‘Yonce, I’ve never quite understood why people fear turning 30. I like reboots and new beginnings, so was all about entering a brand spanking new decade. [CNN] Keep reading »
