President Obama made a digital appearance in the middle of the Grammy Awards
last night to deliver a stirring PSA about abuse and assault. He urged artists to use their influence to change the way Americans think about assault and pointed viewers to the It's On Us
campaign "to help keep women and men safe from sexual assault." While it's incredibly… More »
Lennon and Maisy
, the sisters who play Maddie and Daphne on "Nashville", released a gorgeous cover of Charli XCX's "Boom Clap," and maybe it's just because I'm partial to folk, but it's basically melting my soul. The fact that the two of them have adorable sister vibes when they perform doesn't hurt either. More »
Where do I even begin here? Earlier today, I was alerted to the existence of a bizarre product called Boyfriend Bears --
stuffed bears marketed to teenage Christian girls looking to preserve their "purity" (read: hymen) for their future husbands. I guess a ring just isn't enough these days. They are bears with which one i… More »
Jeff Perry, who plays Cyrus Beene on "Scandal," is able to turn the character's trademark high blood-pressure tirades on at the flip of a switch. The hosts of "The View" must have picked up on his acting prowess, because on the show earlier this week they asked him to read the lyrics to "Shake It… More »
When I heard that chef/restauranteur Eddie Huang wrote a memoir, I bought that shit hardcover and read it in a weekend. When I heard a few years later that this man was going to make his memoir into a TV show, I was psyched. Finally, my people, on TV! When I sat down to actually… More »
We're gonna test your endurance today. How long can you sit through Victoria Jackson's six-minute video about how President Obama is a Secret Muslin
before you simply can't take it anymore? I made it to 2:25 before I had to pause it in order to Google "What is wrong with Victoria Jackson's eyes?" Then, because… More »
We have been waiting precisely 22 years for this and it's finally happened: the cast of Saved by the Bell has reunited. At. Bayside. Last night on an unremarkable Wednesday, Jimmy Fallon, purveyor of nostalgia, whimsy, and breaking character, pulled together the only stunt that could ever follow up Will Ferrell lip syncing "can't kee… More »
Have you ever been on the receiving end of an awkward office crush? I haven’t, because, as it’s been explained to me repeatedly, I am way too scary to approach even if someone is interested (which is fortunate, because I’m at work to work and wouldn’t receive it kindly, which is what I assume, i… More »
"Fox And Friends" host Steve Doocy is clutching his pearls (okay maybe his cufflinks) over what he calls "The Frozen Effect," which -- gasp
-- makes girls feel good about themselves. Penny Nance, president of the PAC Concerned Women for America (who semi-defensively let us know immediately upon first speaking on camera that being a… More »
I fell asleep during "
Magic Mike". Maybe it's because I watched it after too many glasses of wine and a big Thanksgiving dinner. Maybe I didn't get the full appeal of Channing Tatum's blunt-force attractiveness. Whatever. This teaser trailer for "
Magic Mike XXL"has changed everything. Amelia has watched it four times and can't stop making… More »
"Dogs On The Inside"
follows the connection between abused stray dogs and a group of prison inmates who care for them. As a method of gearing up the inmates for the responsibilities of life after prison, they're tasked with training the neglected dogs and teaching them to trust humans again. They come to find out that… More »
Usually the point of Jimmy Kimmel's "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets" is to make you feel a little better about yourself, given the fact that incredibly beautiful and rich people still get vitriolic shit, just like normals. (My karma -- at taking delight in this -- and I will sort ourselves out later, thanks.) But last… More »
Rihanna's songs are almost always the business. "We Found Love"
still goes, even though it's like three years old. "Pour It Up"
is the perfect thing to belt at the top of your lungs at the club, clutching the arms of your best friend. But her latest, "Four Five Seconds," hits all the marks. Sing-a-long… More »
Actor Randy Quaid has been going off the deep end for some time now. I believe the last we heard from him, he and his wife Evi were suing John Kerry to get their passports back and claiming that an evil conspiratorial group they call the "Hollywood Star Whackers" were out to murder them just… More »
Beautiful butterfly and elusive chanteuse Mariah Carey maybe can't sing anymore. Her Christmas special at Rockefeller Center was a hot mess
, but I have never lost faith. She's just having a rough year! She and Mr. Mariah are getting a divorce! She's got to prepare for her Vegas residency!
I'm sure she has other pressing… More »
I am the only person on staff at The Frisky who actually kind of sort of cares about seeing "Fifty Shades of Grey," despite the incredible likelihood that it will be a total piece of shit considering the book series upon which it was based was born out of "Twilight" fanfic. What can I say,… More »
Ken Ham and his fellow Creationists are very upset
about a Carnival Cruise Lines ad that aired during the Superbowl, featuring a particularly lovely part of a 1962 speech by John F. Kennedy. "I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it's because… More »
New York pastor Rev. James David Manning
has some pretty bizarre impressions about how being trans* and/or queer/gay/lesbian/whatever else works, because he’s asserting in a YouTube video
that children ages 6-10 are getting gender reassignment surgeries and regretting those surgeries by the time they’re 20 years old. He’s citing Justin Bieber as an example. A… More »
The Super Bowl happened. Tom Brady and his friends won. Missy Elliot performed a very enthralling medley of her hits
while Katy Perry flounced around in a sparkly, oversized sweatshirt. And, during "Teenage Dream," the one Katy Perry song I don't really mind, two men in shark costumes danced a tightly-choreographed routine while surrounded by… More »
Stacey Dash was once known for being Dionne in "Clueless." Now she's just known for being clueless in real life. The former actress, in her new role on Fox's "Outnumbered," had some interesting things
to say about two recent stories regarding campus crackdowns meant to prevent sexual assault--national sorority chapters telling sorority members at the… More »
