Willie Nelson: country-music legend, outlaw, policy wonk? The singer, set to perform at the Farm Aid concert in Virginia this weekend, is lending his recognize-it-anywhere voice to the surprisingly nerdy issue of postal reform, supporting efforts to keep post offices open and protect the mail service from cuts and privatization. In a video for A Grand […]

Natalie Portman may be (finally) the Jackie Kennedy fans want

Devotees of former first lady Jackie Kennedy might finally have the on-screen version of their fashionable gal-crush they’ve been waiting for in Natalie Portman, who’s been drawing raves (and even early Oscar buzz) for her depiction of Kennedy in the new film “Jackie.” Previous portrayals have been panned. Katie Holmes was widely panned for her turn […]

Ted Cruz starts boycott of ‘rich spoiled athletes’ who protest during anthem

Sen. Ted Cruz is getting in touch with his inner activist.

Will Ivanka and Chelsea ever escape the ‘frenemies’ rumor?

Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump are friends. And they have been for quite some time. This is a fact, people. But for some reason (perhaps because their parents are in a knock-down drag-out fight for the White House) that social bullet point is constantly and consistently being called into question. Both potential first daughters have been […]

Ava DuVernay describes epic dance battle at Obama’s birthday party

Those A-list dance battles at the White House? Not a myth. Last week, director Ava DuVernay sat down with “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert to dish about President Obama’s not-so-top-secret 55th birthday party. The two celebs were both there to witness the commander in chief blow out the candles for the last time at 1600 […]

Larry King and wife Shawn blast ‘false tabloid innuendo’ about infidelity

Going strong, they swear: talk show host Larry King and his wife, Shawn, denying reports that she’s been having an affair. “We stand together in support of our marriage and our family in opposition to malicious gossip and false tabloid innuendo to the contrary,” he wrote as a caption to a smiling Instagram pic. We […]

The Obamas and Joe Biden make Vanity Fair’s best-dressed list

The White House is getting nods from the fashion cognoscenti — but it’s not just the famously style-conscious first lady who’s getting noticed. The president and first lady — and Vice President Biden — made Vanity Fair’s annual best-dressed list: the Obamas in the “couples” category, and Biden among the celebrated stylish men. For the Obamas’ “notable looks […]

Oliver Stone in Washington for private screening of ‘Snowden’

Hey isn’t that … Oscar winning director Oliver Stone having dinner in Washington on Wednesday?

Stone, we’re told, […]

Could D.C. be home to both Miss USA and Miss America?

Washington might not have a vote in Congress, but, hey, at least there’s the monarchy — Miss D.C. is doing well in the lead up to the Miss America pageant, which is set to air on Sunday night. Cierra Jackson (and her bright-purple bikini) took first place in the swimsuit competition in the first preliminary […]

Madeleine Albright named museum’s first ‘Great American,’ recounts path from Czech immigrant to State Dept.

Make room on those vanity walls, overachievers — there’s another medal issued by a Washington institution to vie for. The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History gave out its first shiny gold necklace Wednesday night to former secretary of state Madeleine Albright, who became the museum’s first “Great American.” Before Albright sat gamely for a […]

Gov. John Kasich on actor Daniel Radcliffe: ‘What the hell is wrong with him?’

So John Kasich walks into a bookstore. And somehow a celebrity beef ensues. Kasich — the Republican governor of Ohio, former presidential candidate and current Donald Trump detractor — was on a tour of downtown Exeter, N.H., with gubernatorial candidate Chris Sununu, the son of former Sen. John Sununu. The political entourage walked into a local bookstore, and […]

Axl Rose, ‘Jane the Virgin’ actress reach out to waitress whose customers stiffed her, writing ‘we only tip citizens’

Since Sadie Elledge’s story went viral — she’s the young waitress of Honduran and Mexican ancestry whose customers stiffed her on a tip, leaving a nasty note that read “we only tip citizens”—  she’s gotten plenty of attention. She’s been interviewed by reporters, and received messages of support from customers and strangers alike. Those reaching […]

What Hillary Clinton taught actress Chloe Moretz about Twitter beefs

Don’t know who Chloë Grace Moretz is? A quick primer: She’s the 19-year-old actress who spoke at the Democratic National Convention but whose greater claim to fame is a brief Twitter beef with the Kardashians.

Saudi official buys $10.4 million home near the Clintons in Washington

The 13,000-square-foot home on Whitehaven Street might be a bit modest by Saudi standards (the ambassador’s official residence is a colossal McLean mansion on the Potomac), but that didn’t stop a “minister within the Saudi government” from snapping up the Georgian last month for $10.4 million. Size aside, the home on Whitehaven has something else going for […]

Establishment VIPs hang backstage at Barbra Streisand show

Madeleine Albright, Chris Matthews — they’re not the kind of VIPs you’d typically expect to be rocking backstage passes at a Verizon Center concert. Barbra Streisand’s show last night brought out a multitude of Democratic power players — an establishment crowd that’s sure to be a far cry from the millennials that will pack the arena to see Drake […]
