The Karl Lagerfeld Robot Manages To Say Something Offensive And Weird, Again!

For some reason, the French put Karl Lagerfeld in charge of the Paris edition of the Metro yesterday, giving the Chanel designer free reign to say whatever ridiculous thing he pleases.

Ugh, the Grammys: so, so, so boring and mainstream in their nominations with the occasional WTF?! thrown in for good measure. The 2012 nominees, announced last night, are no exception.

“SNL” Knows That Sometimes, You Just Need A Good Cry

Adele Covers Cosmopolitan

Consider me pleasantly surprised to see the immensely talented -- and full-figured -- singer Adele gracing the cover of December's Cosmopolitan. I mention the full-figured thing only because of all the lady mags on stands, I would venture to guess that Cosmo has likely had the least amount of not-stick-thin cover models. Not only is it…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The MTV Video Music Awards

The MTV Video Music Awards are kind of hilarious, considering the complete lack of videos played on MTV these days. But at least we can count on one thing from them: insane fashion.
