Matt Bomer and Henry Cavill are interchangeable, basically

If “Finding Your Roots” ever returns to PBS, we’d like to suggest that the show nab Henry Cavill and Matt Bomer, because we’re convinced they must be not-so-distant cousins. Just look at them. Surely we’re not the only ones who see it, right? Even though Cavill probably has at least about a foot and 75 […]

Ariana Grande’s doughnut scandal is an important reminder: The cameras are always watching

Ariana Grande and her boyfriend walk into a California doughnut shop. While the employee walks away from the counter, they lick some doughnuts set out on the counter and laugh about it. When the employee comes back with a tray of doughnuts, Grande says disdainfully, “What is the f— is that? I hate Americans. I hate […]

Poll: How much time does that cup of coffee buy you?

Coffeeshop lurkers may be in a public place, but as Wednesday’s story about teleworkers’ increased presence in cafes notes, some of them act like they own the place. Making a purchase, said University of North Carolina at GreensboroShow More Summary

No, Hannibal Buress doesn’t want to smoke weed with you

Comedian Hannibal Buress, who plays the wonderfully unflappable Lincoln on “Broad City,” is finally getting his own TV show. Unfortunately, we can’t really tell you much about it because no one has seen it yet. Buress finished shooting and editing the first episode of “Why? With Hannibal Buress” on Tuesday. It debuts tonight on Comedy […]

‘The View’ disintegrates further as Rosie Perez confirms exit

While “The View” moderator Whoopi Goldberg is dominating the headlines by doubling down on her defense of Bill Cosby, her show is going through some drama of its own. After an endless stream of stories about yet another “View” shake-up, co-host Rosie Perez broke down on Wednesday as she confirmed her upcoming exit. “Well, you guys all […]

Mapped: Is Bill Cosby still welcome anywhere in the U.S.?

So how do you feel about Bill Cosby now? Perhaps you soured on the once-beloved comedian way back in the fall during the blizzard of sexual assault allegations. Or maybe, like Jill Scott, you stayed loyal until word came out Monday that he admitted acquiring sedatives to give to the women he wanted to have […]

Whoopi Goldberg on Bill Cosby: He’s ‘innocent until proven guilty’

Whoopi Goldberg has refused to condemn Bill Cosby, even after newly unsealed court documents released yesterday revealed that Cosby admitted that he intended to give drugs to young women with whom he wanted to have sex. Cosby made the admission of using Quaaludes and Benadryl to drug women in sworn testimony. [In 2005, Bill Cosby […]

What we learned about sex and power from Rihanna’s music videos

This post discusses mature themes in Rihanna’s work and therefore contains violent and sexually explicit imagery. Say what you will about her voice (or lack thereof) or her lackluster dancing abilities. Rihanna is one of the best examples of the “it” factor that makes a pop star, well, a pop star. It doesn’t hurt that she […]

Faizon Love and Jill Scott were some of the celebrities who defended Bill Cosby. What do they think now?

Big Worm doesn’t like to admit when he’s wrong. Faizon Love, the actor best known for playing that character in the “Friday” movies, has once again voiced his opinions on Bill Cosby and the more than 30 women who have come forward and accused the actor of raping and/or drugging them. Yesterday, when a judge unsealed […]

Amazon and Netflix pass on ‘Hannibal,’ but fannibals aren’t losing hope yet

Bryan Fuller makes the best television shows that no one is watching. His series all follow a similar trajectory: He makes a brilliant show, a small group of extremely loyal people love it, the critics rave. And then it gets canceled. It happened with “Pushing Daisies,” “Wonder Falls” and “Dead Like Me,” and “Hannibal” might […]

Report: Bill Cosby testified in 2005 that he obtained drugs to give women for sex

Bill Cosby testified under oath a decade ago that he obtained sedatives to give to women, according to the Associated Press. The wire service — which went to court to compel the public release of documents detailing the admission — reported that Cosby intended to use the drugs on women he wanted to have sex […]

What women want: How ‘Magic Mike’ understands female desire

This unapologetic paean to “Magic Mike XXL” is loaded with spoilers. Are we absolutely sure Channing Tatum didn’t crawl inside a woman’s head and live in it before co-writing “Magic Mike XXL?” The beauty of the film is not just that it offers a vehicle for freely and honestly discussing the taboos of (straight) female sexuality and […]

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher reportedly marry

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher finally got married! Probably! If their reps confirm it! If they didn’t already tie the knot a few months ago! Which is also likely! If “multiple reports” are to be believed, Kunis and Kutcher officially wed this weekend. That is, if you didn’t take the news seriously when Kunis supposedly […]

Psst, ever heard of that guy Jerry Garcia?

Musically, it was hard to complain about the Grateful Dead’s farewell, otherwise known as “Fare Thee Well.” Some critics groused, but they worked hard in these five final concerts, which wrapped up Sunday night at Soldier Field. The sets were fresh with only a couple of well-chosen repeats. Sure, there were sluggish moments and way […]

Why we think ‘BBHMM’ is about Rihanna’s former accountant, Peter Gounis

Never underestimate the court of public opinion. Though Rihanna dropped her lawsuit against her former accountant Peter Gounis, it looks like she litigated — and won — her case with the video for “B—- Better Have My Money,” which debuted last week. If nothing else, “B—– Better Have My Money” serves as a seven-minute dose of […]

Five months after falling unconscious, Bobbi Kristina Brown still surrounded by drama

On Jan. 31, Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was found face down in a bathtub. More than five months later, the state of the now 22-year-old’s health is still in question. After a (comparably) calm few months, her name has reentered the news multiple times in the past two weeks […]

Dustin Brown lived in a Volkswagen van and other fun facts about Wimbledon’s most interesting competitor

This isn’t Dustin “Dreddy” Brown’s first Wimbledon rodeo. It’s just the first time the No. 102-ranked Jamaican-German tennis player has wiped out a top-seeded opponent while the whole world was watching. John McEnroe, the tennis champ-turned-commentator, declared Brown’s performance Thursday as fine as it gets for a low-ranked player (er, how’s that for a back-handed […]

Why you might never hear another posthumous Amy Winehouse album — and why that might be a good thing

The new documentary “Amy” is re-igniting the buzz that once surrounded Amy Winehouse, but if you’re hoping to hear more music from the late singer, you can forget it. The late singer’s label head has revealed that fans will probably never lay ears on a third Amy Winehouse album because he destroyed the demos. [Amy […]
