JLaw's Ex-Boyfriend Will Play Role of J.D. Salinger in Biopic

Yes, he has a name: Nicholas Hoult. But how many of us learned about him via the persistent stream of Jennifer Lawrence media coverage? In any case, Gothamist reports that Hoult has been cast as Catcher in the Rye author J.D. Salinger in the upcoming—and oh so cleverly named—biopic, Rebel in the Rye. » 8/31/15 9:15pm Today 9:15pm

Over 200 Of Hillary Clinton's Emails Contain Classified Information

Hillary Clinton has been dealing with a months-long migraine atop her many other migraines after it was revealed that she used a private email server to conduct official secretary of state business. Nothing classified was sent over the insecure server, she insisted, and the hype was partisan overreaction. It turns… » 8/31/15 8:30pm Today 8:30pm

Barely Famous' Erin and Sara Foster Are Terrible Hostesses 

Erin and Sara Foster, well-connected siblings and stars of VH1’s surprisingly great Barely Famous, gave Vanity Fair an irritable tour of Erin’s Beverly Hills townhouse (“It’s an apartment,” Sara corrects Erin. “I just don’t want to look like a liar when you guys come in and see that it’s clearly not a townhouse”). » 8/31/15 7:00pm Today 7:00pm

No, It Is Certainly Not Time to Stop Eating Fucking Salad

Ranch dressing is dumb. Croutons are bad mojo. Shredded cheddar cheese is offensive. A coupla barely ripe tomato wedges are a travesty. Shaved carrots are a slap in the face. Simply tossing these things atop a pile of listless iceberg does not a good salad make. This is the argument being made by Tamar Haspel at the … » 8/31/15 5:00pm Today 5:00pm

Ashley Madison Code Shows More Women, and More Bots

After searching through the Ashley Madison database and private email last week, I reported that there might be roughly 12,000 real women active on Ashley Madison. Now, after looking at the company’s source code, it’s clear that I arrived at that low number based in part on a misunderstanding of the evidence. Equally… » 8/31/15 3:50pm Today 3:50pm

'Purity' Used to Target Women, But for Franzen, Purity Targets Men 

Purity starts out, as Jonathan Franzen’s books do, with a word used unusually well, a little signal that the author is in control. In The Corrections, it was “the berserk wind.” In Freedom it was “conniving with the coal industry.” In Purity, it was “without undue weirdness transpiring,” where “transpiring” has the… » 8/31/15 3:45pm Today 3:45pm

What are the Best Ballet Flats?

Fall is coming. As Dodai Stewart put it, ballet flats are, “so gamine, so easy, so cute, so chic, so versatile — but the truth is, they can be terribly uncomfortable when they’re actually on your feet.” Which flat brings the most versatility with the least pain? Tell us in the comments. » 8/31/15 3:15pm Today 3:15pm

Why Isn't Elisabeth Hasselbeck Classified As a Hate Group? 

Elisabeth Hasselbeck, the third runner-up on season two of Survivor, had a particularly stupid thought Monday which she helpfully shared on national television. Elisabeth wondered why the Black Lives Matter movement hasn’t been classified as a hate group. What’s funny is that we’ve all been wondering the same thing… » 8/31/15 3:05pm Today 3:05pm
