Sarah Silverman & Zach Galifianakis Raise $20,000 For The Texas Abortion Fund

  • Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis, Retta, Jen Kirkman and others raised around $20,000 at a comedy show on Sunday night called “A Night Of A Thousand Vaginas” to benefit the Texas Abortion Fund. The fund are a group of charities that women in Texas seeking abortions can tap into when facing prohibitive costs and barriers by their conservative state legislature. [Hollywood Reporter]
  • Last week, Grantland published an essay about Essay Anne Vanderbilt, the inventor of a golf club, whom the author Caleb Hannum outed as a transgender woman. Fearing how she would be outed once the piece, “Dr. V’s Magical Putter,” was published, Vanderbilt committed suicide during the reporting. Here’s a view pieces that have smart takes on the lack of journalistic ethics that lead to the outing of a trans woman against her will. [Flavorwire, Think Progress, Think Progress]

Zach Galifianakis Interrogates Justin Bieber, Whips Him With Belt On “Between Two Ferns”

Zach Galifianakis interviews Justin Bieber on "Between Two Ferns"
"So, Justin, you've had three hairstyles."

If you’re at all sensitive to the plights of one unhinged Justin Bieber, get ready to feel uncomfortable! As for the rest of us, who have been waiting patiently in the wings for some seemingly responsible adult to call Biebs out on his bullshit … who better to step up to the plate than Zach Galifianakis? Galifianakis’s fantastically awkward talk show-format skit “Between Two Ferns” has played host to everyone from Tila Tequila to Jennifer Lawrence, but we can’t say we ever expected the badly-behaved singer to subject himself to the sometimes cringeworthy antics of Zach’s hot seat — or for his PR people to sign off on it.

Zach sets the tone for the interview with his first line: “It’s really exciting to talk to you, especially right in the middle of your public meltdown.” He proceeds to insult, chastise, and otherwise interrogate Bieber before standing up from his chair and whipping the 19-year-old with his belt. Of course, no Canadians were harmed in the making of this video — “Between Two Ferns” is a Funny or Die production, which means that Justin, like Zach, is acting. Keep that in mind! [via Gawker]

“Saturday Night Live” Plays “Game Of ‘Game Of Thrones’”

What Year Is It?

Zach Galifianakis first “Saturday Night Live” hosting appearance was maybe one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen (“That’s so Raven?”), so I had high hopes for his second stint this weekend. Alas, the show was off-kilter and random, and not in the good way Zach is generally known for. But one sketch in particular made me crack up — watch as Zach plays a dragon costume-clad “Game of Thrones” fan on the show “Game of ‘Game of Thrones’,” who keeps getting the, well, hardest questions for a “GoT” fan to answer. Jaime Lannister himself  makes an appearance. Swooooon!

"'The Hunger Games' -- isn't that your life story?"

The esteemed celebrity talk show “Between Two Ferns,” hosted by my boyfriend Zach Galifianakis, has at long last returned from an agonizing nine-month hiatus (did Zach have a baby or something?). Better yet, it’s back with a special Oscars edition, featuring interviews with Academy Award nominees Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Christoph Waltz, Anne Hathaway, and Amy Adams. Hathaway’s performance is groan-worthy, to say the very least, but if you’ve ever wanted to hear The Impossible Naomi Watts talk about diarrhea, now’s your chance! Also, I don’t know if it’s the pneumonia or what, but Jennifer Lawrence has, like, the sexiest voice of all time. I would like to borrow her vocal cords. Weird! Anyway, get ready to shudder with secondhand awkwardness! [Gawker]

The 9 Most Misspelled Celebrity Names

You know those words that seem impossible to spell right on the first try, but are nonetheless part of everyday language? “Apparent.” “Vacuum.” Even “misspell” is a tough one.

What if your name was as easy to misspell as, well, “misspell”? For some unlucky celebrities (and lucky people who write about them), typos in their names are just a part of the job. After all, there’s a reason Cher ditched her birth name, Cherilyn Sarkisian La Piere, in favor of a more writer-friendly moniker.

Ahead, check out the nine hardest to spell celebrity names — and examples of mistakes — that prove that no matter how famous you are, you can’t escape a typo. Read more…

Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well.” [Uptown Magazine]
