Banksy’s latest work sure hits close to home, doesn’t it? The painting was posted to the artist’s website on Monday, and then the original was finally found by a number of fans in Bristol, England, where he allegedly grew up. The British press has already given the painting the name “Mobile Lovers,” but I think we should call it “Jared Leto & Friend,” inspired by the infamous photo of Jared Leto texting while making out with Scarlett Johansson (see it after the jump). Clearly that was Banksy’s inspiration, right? Obviously. [Washington Post] Keep reading »
If there are a million ways to do something wrong, there should be at least a few ways to do a thing right. In this series, Janet and Emily tackle your questions from two different perspectives. The result, we hope, is two right answers.
Janet is a stone-cold rationalist, baker, and monotreme from Australia. Her boobs played the field briefly before marrying themselves off to a skier-dude. Emily is from the Midwest, and is a single, straight, agnostic, whiskey-drinking softball player who’d love to use her Pinterest wedding board before all the pics go out of style. Both Janet and Emily are writers and comedians in New York.
Hi, not to be uncool, but my problem has to do with the return of “Game of Thrones.” The show is super violent, so I’m not particularly into it, but my boyfriend insists on watching it live that night. The thing is I think he’s only watching it for all the sexy stuff that happens in the show. In the season premiere, there was a scene where he yelled at the TV “take it off!” and sure enough, a male character pulled off the robes of all the women in the room like a minute later. He clearly gets excited, he’ll bounce his knee during these scenes. This is a creepy turnoff to me. — No Head For Ned Tonight Keep reading »

According to court documents obtained by The Wrap, Bryan Singer, director of the hit “X-Men” franchise, is accused of drugging, raping and using his power to manipulate a then-17-year-old male, in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Hawaii this week. According to the lawsuit, plaintiff Michael Egan — who was named in a press release sent out by his lawyers — says Singer forcibly sodomized him, among other things, when he was 17. The lawsuit alleges:
Defendant, BRYAN JAY SINGER, manipulated his power, wealth, and position in the entertainment industry to sexually abuse and exploit the underage Plaintiff through the use of drugs, alcohol, threats, and inducements which resulted in Plaintiff suffering catastrophic psychological and emotional injuries. Defendant Singer did so as part of a group of adult males similarly positioned in the entertainment industry that maintained and exploited boys in a sordid sex ring. A Hollywood mogul must not use his position to sexually exploit underage actors.
