In promoting his new book (which I am too irritated to even link to) on Fox News’ “Trending With Tantaros,” KISS frontman Gene Simmons proclaimed that we ladies need to stop leeching off our men because so many dudes walk out anyway, and that we should just actively plan for abandonment instead. Gene, what’s the deal… More »

Happy Halloween, Here’s A Princess Jasmine Cat On A Magic Carpet Roomba!

Claire Hannum | October 27, 2014 - 12:30 pm

The title says it all, doesn’t it? Max-Arthur, our favorite Roomba-riding cat, is back to celebrate the season by parading around in “Aladdin” garb. I’m going to assume that the YouTube copyright police are the reason “A Whole New World” isn’t playing in the background (I mean, why else!?), so go ahead and mute the… More »

Claire Hannum | October 27, 2014 - 11:30 am

Kelly Clarkson bestowed upon us humble plebs the most glorious and stirring “Shake It Off” cover to ever make its way through our speakers (not that I know of all too many “Shake It Off” covers to begin with, but you get my drift.)

Kate Hudson’s Matthew McConaughey Impression Is Alright, Alright, Alright

Amelia McDonell-Parry | October 26, 2014 - 9:00 am

And by that I mean pretty goddamn great. Matthew McConaughey was honored at an American Cinematheque gala and a bunch of his costars were on hand to celebrate the man and his work, including Kate Hudson, who stole the show with her dead-on impression of the Texas-born, naked bongo-playing actor.

When people wake up on the wrong side of bed, bad things happen. Unfortunately, for a group of tourists visiting San Francisco, their sightseeing tour guide (who happens to be incredibly racist) was one of those people.

Claire Hannum | October 23, 2014 - 4:30 pm

So here’s what I think really happened when Taylor Swift released “Out Of The Woods” last week: some wild techno remix that she was saving for months down the line was accidentally released in the place of the original track, and this lovely singer Kathleen Nguyen thought she’d do Tay a solid by posting a video of… More »

Kimberly Guilfoyle and her co-hosts on “The Five” decided on Tuesday’s edition of the show that young women are just too out of it to be functional members of society.

Benedict Cumberbatch Is A “Porn Star Dragon”

Rebecca Vipond Brink | October 22, 2014 - 6:00 pm

Oh, good, Benedict Cumberbatch feels exactly as porny about this video of Benedict Cumberbatch acting out the role of Smaug (in “The Hobbit”) as I do. I’m sorry, that’s a fuck-me voice. No one gets to deny it. To capture the performance, Peter Jackson’s WETA workshop put Cumberbatch in a motion-capture suit and built a… More »
