Victoria Beckham Rekindles Our 90’s Dreams With A Vintage Spice Girls Pizza

Victoria Beckham is one of my favorite people in the Twittersphere, and the Spice Girls pizza she tweeted this week forever cemented her swoon-worthy status in my eyes.

A Survivor’s Take On Twitter, Privacy And Telling Somebody Else’s Rape Story

I feel for BuzzFeed writer Jessica Testa. While our blog may not get the massive traffic that BF does, I’ve still experienced brief bouts of hundreds of people being furious with me because I wrote something that genuinely held no ill-intent. I think that no matter how obvious it is that the Internet is full of…

The 20 Best Twitter Reactions To Lindsay Lohan’s Reality Show Debut

As you may have heard if you utilize the Internet whatsoever, Lindsay Lohan has a brand new reality show on Oprah‘s network, OWN. It’s ostensibly about her redemption after getting a bunch of DUIs, allegedly stealing from others, and spending a rather remarkable amount of money, but in reality (ha), it’s still just another program where nothing feels genuine and the character…

Make This Happen: Idris Elba Wants To Be On “Girls”

You guys! Idris Elba — star of  “Luther,” “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom,” and, of course, “The Wire” — is going to be on “Girls”! I mean, I’m assuming he is, because he ASKED TO BE and when Idris Elba ASKS to appear on your show, you say YES. You move heaven and earth to…

Seth Rogen Admits To Masturbating To Photo Of RuPaul As A Teenager

Oh, yes. Seth Rogen is one of my weird celebrity crushes of the vaguely chubby, grizzly-faced variety, a pet category of mine that also includes Chris Pratt and Seth’s buddy Jason Segel. I feel like I’m always having to defend these unorthodox attractions of mine. People just don’t understand. No explanation should be necessary any…

I was clicking about the internet, looking for some news when I happened upon this gem of a piece on the Huffington Post entitled “There Are Plenty Of Twitter Users Who FInd Their Cousins Hot.” It’s just what the doctor ordered for a “Law & Order: SVU” fan with twisted curiosities.

Welp, that was interesting. Late yesterday, I told you about Justine Sacco, the IAC Communications Executive who tweeted a racist joke about AIDS shortly before departing on her flight to somewhere in Africa.

2013: The Year In Selfies

In 2013, Oxford, those crazy ol’ coots, officially added the word “selfie” to the dictionary. Oh humanity, how far we have come. I am an unabashed fan of the selfie, as it’s just one way of documenting the fact that yes, I do indeed exist (and I sometimes even leave my apartment!). And I am not alone,…

10 Reasons Reading Rob Delaney’s Book Will Make Your Life Better

If you are on Twitter and don’t follow @RobDelaney, you need to rethink your life. It’s like going to Italy and not eating pizza, or driving through New Jersey for the first time and not listening to Bruce Springsteen, which I’m pretty sure is illegal. Bruce Springsteen is the King of New Jersey, and Ro…

Hey guys, great news. According to a tweet posted to the GOP’s official Twitter account — acknowledging the 58th anniversary of Rosa Parks’ refusal to move to the back of the bus in Birmingham, Alabama — racism has ended.
