Kylie Jenner Sparks Twitter Frenzy Over Her Misuse Of The Term “Bipolar”

The kombined Kardashian-Jenner klan is famous (“famous”) for lots of things (or, rather, one thing that has splintered off into lots of things): multiple revealing reality television shows, media ubiquity, 72-day marriages, explicit discussion and occasional tasting of bodily fluids, giving birth on camera … you get it. Not one of these things even begi…

Horrible Rape Joke Goes Viral On Twitter

This. This is an example of a not funny rape joke. And yet it’s one that many, many people have posted or retweeted on Twitter, without criticism, thereby lending their tacit approval of the statement that rape is somehow flattering. The Tumblr blog Fucking Rape Culture is keeping a list of all those who tweeted the joke without…

The Vatican Had No Idea Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day” Was About Heroin

Gianfranco Cardinal Ravasi, the Vatican’s culture minister, was trying to do a solid by tweeting lyrics from the Lou Reed song “Perfect Day,” as a tribute to the late singer who passed away this weekend. You can see how it would be easy to mistake the lyrics for a simple love song:
Oh, it’s such

The Best Of The #MensRightsMovies Twitter Hashtag

I love reading about how clever trending hashtags are born. The Daily Dot has a post about the currently trending #MensRightsMovies hashtag, which was born out Aaminah Khan’s punning tweet about bronies, above. The hashtag took off almost instantly, with hundreds of others contributing their own hilarious anti-woman/anti-feminist/pro-MRA spins on popular movie titles. Check out…

Sorry, I’m Not Cool With FU_Makeouts

Regret what you did last night? Well that’s rough. Imagine how much rougher it would be if your whole college campus could see a play-by-play of it on the Internet. Welcome to Fordham University’s  “Gossip Girl”-like Twitter account, FU_Makeouts, which documents students’ hook-ups for their classmates to see. Students are encouraged to “embarrass your friends” by submitting…

Rashida Jones To Other Female Stars: “Stop Acting Like Whores”

Rashida Jones, who is not usually one to court controversy, tweeted that she wishes her fellow female entertainers would “stop acting like whores” and she’s tired that “she who comes closest to showing the actual inside of her vagina is most popluar.” She then backtracked with another tweet, “Let me clarify. I don’t shame…

Dating Don’ts: Social Media Etiquette For Every Stage Of Your Relationship

The rush that comes from infatuation is a drug as powerful and all-consuming as the sadness and white hot rage that follows a breakup. It is in these two extreme states that your desire to consume all you can about a person is at its highest. Through the sorcery of the internet, it’s all at…

Help For Over-Tweeters Is Here!

Is there that one person you follow on Twitter that constantly tweets the most inane shit? Do you find yourself wanting to reach through the computer screen and stop their little fingers mid-tweet? We all know Twitter is many things, but it is certainly not a personal repository for your breakfast descriptions

This Sexist Flier Was Spotted In The Ladies’ Bathroom At Twitter’s Headquarters

Despite Twitter CEO Dick Costolo’s best efforts to convince us that the company’s all-male, all-white board (and mostly all-male management team) isn’t an issue, this flier appeared in the women’s restroom at the Twitter’s offices in San Francisco today. Engineering Manager Jill Wetzler tweeted, what is most likely an invitation for some kind of Oktoberfest…

Did A Justin Bieber Fan Cut Off A Non-Belieber’s Hair And Post A Photo On Twitter?

We already know teenage pop fandom to be crazy, particularly in the contemporary cases of Beliebers and Directioners, but is it this crazy? Now, full disclaimer: nobody seems to know if this is real, but if it is … there may very well be no hope for the human race. Hardcore Belieber and Twitter enthusiast…

Mariah Carey Celebrates Nick Cannon’s Birthday By Tweeting Picture Of Her Boobs

Birthdays in the Carey-Cannon house sure are a lot of fun. There’s cake, party hats, and sharing  your breasts with all of Twitter! In celebration of Nick Cannon’s 33rd birthday today, wifey Mariah tweeted a picture of her black bra-clad breasts underneath an unbuttoned shirt, her face seductively turned off to one side. Sure beat…

Renowned Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson Trolls The Movie “Gravity” On Twitter

I haven’t seen “Gravity” yet, but I’m eager to, as I love movies about space and the reviews have, for the most part, been really, really good. But one person wasn’t necessarily so impressed with the accuracy of Alfonso Cuaron’s cinematic vision — renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Tyson tweeted up a storm after seeing the film last…

Jack Osbourne Dresses Daughter Pearl Up Just Like Grandpa

“The Osbournes” pioneered the family-centric reality TV format, and I personally believe that the entire genre should have just quit while it was ahead. The Kardashians are good for whatever it is that they’re good for, but nothing will ever compare to Ozzy’s aimless bumbling, Sharon’s loving shrillness, Kelly and Jack, teenage Jack’s oft-berated Australia…

Emmy Rossum Doesn’t Know Who’s Been Inside Her Vagina

This week Emmy Rossum tweeted about a really AWKWARD run-in with her gynecologist. The uncomfie part, in my opinion, was not running into the person who has an intimate relationship with her cervix, but not recognizing him. This begs the question: what was she doing last time she got a pap smear that she didn’t…

The “Sex And The City” 3-Quel Twitter Is The Best Twitter

“Sex and the City” is one of the many shows I have a love-hate relationship with. In the beginning it was a groundbreaking show for portraying women in their thirties as single (without judging them to be spinsters), being frank about the fact that women enjoyed sex and for showing each to be independent and successful. The…

Martha Stewart Is Still Waiting For Apple To Come Pick Up Her Broken iPad

What a normal person drops their iPad and the screen shatters, they yell curse words and haul their ass to a Genius Bar to beg for help. When Martha Stewart drops her iPad and the screen shatters, she Tweets about it and waits for Apple to come to her house to pick it up. And…

Win This! “New Girl” Seasons 1 & 2 On DVD

Heyyyy Girl, whatcha doin? Oh … winning “New Girl” Seasons 1 & 2 on DVD? That’s what I thought.

To honor the quirky, Nick-lovin’ school teacher we all know as Jess Day (aka Zooey Deschanel), we’re tipping our hats to her brief period of unemployment in between teaching gigs AND giving you a…

Bills Clinton And Gates, Hangin’ Out, Takin’ Selfies

Man, do I love a good Bill. Murray, Cosby, Clinton, Nye, Gates… I’ll take ‘em all. Bills are just the best! Here are two of them (Clinton and Gates, to be specific) captured in the form of a genuine @billclinton selfie. This looks just like a selfie my dad would take. Read: very blurry. Dads!
