Morrissey Sulks Brilliantly On “The Colbert Report”

The British singer Morrissey is a notoriously ornery guy — and we love him for it. On last night’s episode of “The Colbert Report,” Morrissey and Stephen Colbert went head to head over Morrissey’s strict vegetarian stance and his total distaste for the British royal family.

Political Reporter Marin Cogan On How Mitt Romney’s A Mansplainer

Have you ever dated a mansplainer? You know, one of those dudes who feels the need to tell you exactly how the world works by spouting off incredibly obvious information. According to Urban Dictionary, mansplaining is simply: “To explain in a patronizing manner, assuming total ignorance on the part of those listening. The mansplainer i…

Inspiring Quotes From New York Mag’s Fiona Apple Interview

Confession: Last night, I read the New York magazine piece, “I Just Want to Feel Everything’: Hiding Out With Fiona Apple Musical Hermit,” not once, but three times. I think it was one of the best music interviews I’ve read in a long time. I’ve always been a Fiona Apple fan. Tidal came out my first year…

Flashback: Lindsay Lohan’s 2006 Interview Cover As Elizabeth Taylor

I’m just going to put it out there: Lindsay Lohan is no Elizabeth Taylor, and I, among others, find myself vaguely and inexplicably offended by Lifetime’s decision to cast her as such. It pains me to see anyone fanning the flames of the formerly great young actress’s delusions of grandeur, and being tapped to play…

Frisky Q&A: Ezra Miller, Star Of “We Need To Talk About Kevin”

I’m definitely one of those people who enjoys the vast majority of movies I see in some way. But I’m rarely blown away by a film to the point where I’ll want to see it twice in a short period of time. One such film that did have that spirit-moving effect on me was “We…

Shia LaBeouf Continues To Earn Nickname “Shia LaDouche” By Claiming He Banged Megan Fox

Apparently, nobody ever told “Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf (whose name I continue to never know how to spell) that it was ungentlemanly to kiss and tell, because dude straight up told the world that he hooked up with costar Megan Fox while they were filming the movie. In a new interview with Details, LaBeouf say…

Barbara Walters Fist Pumps Her Way To Rock Bottom

Poor Barbara Walters. I’m imagining what it must be like after a long, successful career, to have to humble herself to the likes of the cast of “Jersey Shore“for the “10 Most Fascinating People of 2010″ special last week. She called it a “first” for her, but we all know that is a…

In this interview with comic Gordon Keith, to promote Zach’s new film “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” the tables are turned. Watch as Zach struggles to compare and contrast hi…

Margaret Cho, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. There’s your 1994 show “All-American Girl.” Your stand-up comedy concerts like “I’m The One That I Want” and “Notorious C.H.O.” Your shows “The Cho Show,” and most recently, “Drop Dead Diva.” I could go on, but I don’t want to embarrass you with…

Anna Paquin And Stephen Moyer Spill Their Guts To “Nylon”

Sweet vampire plaything Anna Paquin and her on-and-off-screen lovah, Stephen Moyer, did an interview for the September issue of Nylon. As a huge fan of “True Blood,” I got super pumped when I saw the cover, which features Anna looking gorgeous though slightly off-kilter. But I got even more excited when Anna started talking about…
