Cardi B Creates a Twerk Haven, and Ariana Grande Finds Happiness in Spending

Yes, but do not watch this at work: City Girls, “Twerk,” feat. Cardi B (video) - Ass appreciation is the obvious centerpiece here, but also note the impressive feline body paint, which made a Jezebel staffer comment that Cardi B should’ve starred in Cats. Is this a way of reclaiming the music-video aesthetic of male…

Wendy Williams's Return to Television Delayed Again Wendy Williams's Return to Television Delayed Again

How you doin’? Terribly! Thank you for asking. Just this past Monday, Don Lemon, who was subbing for Williams in her extended absence from The Wendy Williams Show, said Williams was expected to resume her hosting duties next week.

Season 2 of At Home with Amy Sedaris Looks Even More Insane Than the First

Good news for people with good taste: Amy Sedaris’s 15-percent serious crafting/entertaining truTV show At Home with Amy Sedaris will return for a second season on February 19. Above is a preview for the 10-episode season, which will feature the utterly bonkers sides of celebs like Justin Theroux, Susan Sarandon, Rose…

The Masked Singer: Who Is the Woman in Yellow?

The Masked Singer is barely organized chaos. There is not much more to say than the series’ third episode, which was guest-judged by a particularly caustic Joel McHale, but there is much to see (Nick Cannon’s turban! Jenny McCarthy’s Nomi Malone hands! Nicole Scherzinger’s every move!). Highlights in this week’s…

Yes, You Should Still Watch the Netflix Fyre Festival Doc Even If You've Watched Hulu's Yes, You Should Still Watch the Netflix Fyre Festival Doc Even If You've Watched Hulu's

By the time the talking heads that populate Hulu’s Fyre Fraud documentary (and I’m using that designation loosely) start explaining what FOMO and influencers are in basic terms about midway through, anyone who’s been paying attention to, oh, culture in the past 10 years has to wonder who exactly this thing is for.

Jamie Lee Curtis Isn't Done Ranting About Fiji Water 

On Wednesday’s episode of The Talk, Carrie Ann Inaba brought up the apparent bane of Jamie Lee Curtis’s existence, and Curtis ranted about it with aplomb. Excellent.

What the Hell Is Happening on Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club?

The tone of Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club is reminiscent of that fuzzy feeling at 4 p.m. on a Saturday after a long night of partying and a shorter morning of napping, when you’re no longer fucked up but still definitely not right. Even with that said, the show took a particularly bizarre turn Monday night by going full…

Don Lemon Is Your New Wendy Williams

This is weird. The Wendy Willams Show returned today... without Wendy Williams. The talk show was scheduled to return from holiday break on Monday, January 7, but was delayed by a week, on account of a shoulder fracture, according to a January 5 post on the show’s official Instagram account.

What Does Janeane Garofalo Think She Knows About Louis C.K. That We Don't? What Does Janeane Garofalo Think She Knows About Louis C.K. That We Don't?

If I told you that someone said the actual words, “Leave Louis C.K. alone,” surely you would think that I was kidding, or that at least they were kidding while satirizing Chris Crocker’s famous “Leave Britney alone!” YouTube meltdown.

Oh, Barnacles!: Dr. Pimple Popper Meets a Tumor That Looks Like Patrick from SpongeBob Oh, Barnacles!: Dr. Pimple Popper Meets a Tumor That Looks Like Patrick from SpongeBob

That’s Dr. Pimple Popper for you: Squishing one cherished childhood memory at a time.

The Masked Singer Continues to Spread Joy and Stupidity to All Who Dare to Watch

Many shows on television are stupid, but few are as flagrantly stupid as The Masked Singer. This is a good thing, I have decided, for no good reason. Whatever, gotta be looking at something when your eyes are open. On Wednesday’s second episode, we heard the phrase “sexy toothbrush,” a play on a celebrity’s name…

Beloved Sex Educator Dr. Ruth Westheimer Is Getting Her Own Documentary

This may be hard to imagine in these dick-laden times, but not very long ago it was rare to even hear someone say the word “penis” on television, much less get an eyeful of one. To quote Lindsay Lohan: Oh, the story changes.

I Can't Stop Watching This Clip of Lindsay Lohan Attempting to Interact with Her 'Employee'

Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, which debuted Tuesday on MTV, is many things, and only some of them are intended. Through the uncanny-valley haze of contrived setups and editing so hyper as to be Russ Meyers levels of disorienting, though, sometimes something that’s so awkward it must be true emerges.

You Realize the Dating Show in Which Women (and Men) Shop for Dicks Is Amazing, Right? You Realize the Dating Show in Which Women (and Men) Shop for Dicks Is Amazing, Right?

You may have seen a clip going around Twitter this week, in which a British woman stands before six sets of male genitalia and evaluates the meat and two veg in unsparing terms. “I like smooth balls because they are easier to suck on,” she says, sizing up one guy’s junk. Regarding another’s dick: “I’m liking the…

Mariah Carey Settles Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Mariah Carey Settles Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

It looks like another one of Mariah Carey’s intensely public breakups is over for good. The diva has reportedly settled with her former manager Stella Bulochnikov, who sued Carey for sexual harassment in April after working with her for about three years.

Lizzo Makes Us Happy, and Backstreet (Dadstreet?) Still Has a Place in Our Hearts

Yes, incredible: Lizzo, “Juice” (video) - I can’t help that I’m easily swayed by ’80s aesthetics, especially when it’s done with style, glamour, and Soul Glo-inspired vision. This is Lizzo’s catchy, effusive ballad for all the baddies on which she refuses to stop being great: “It ain’t my fault that I’m out here…

The Plight of the Aspiring 'Startender'/Kim Kardashian Wannabe on True Life

One of the most sensitive-slash-lurid creations MTV has ever devised, True Life, returned Wednesday night in a slightly altered format—it’s titled True Life/Now, and features occasional talking heads opining on the issue du jour. This episode followed three people who idolize the Kardashians to the point of emulating…

Let the Wrong Ones In Let the Wrong Ones In

I have noticed a tendency in people’s online communication and I’m not quite sure is whether it’s sincere or performative. I’m also not quite sure that if in 2018, it’s possible to completely detangle those sensibilities from online writing, anyway. But for the sake of simplicity (but also owing to the tenacious…
