If there is one quote that sums up the ethos of Uber, it might be this cut from the company’s firebrand CEO Travis Kalanick: “Stand by your principles and be comfortable with confrontation. So few people are, so when the people with the red tape come, it becomes a negotiation.” But after a month marked by one disaster…
Let’s be honest—expectations are not that high when it comes to Emilio Pucci, or Milan Fashion Week in general. But I have to say I was still pretty shocked when this orange Cousin It marched down the runway, maybe because Pucci is an establishment brand that is clearly trying to appear innovative and failing…
NATIONAL HARBOR, MD—Esteemed president Donald J. Trump used his CPAC speech Friday to rail against the First Amendment and the media’s use of anonymous sources—a curious stance for the self-proclaimed businessman, given his history of citing anonymous sources and pretending to be other people in interviews.
I used to work at the desk of a successful comedy theater answering phones. We got a lot of random callers, as you can imagine, and one afternoon someone rang just to ask, “How much do you get paid for stand up comedy?” It was the funniest thing I’d heard in weeks.
The goddesses of black entertainment came out and glowed at Essence’s Black Women in Hollywood Awards on Thursday night in Los Angeles. See all the red carpet looks from Tracee Ellis Ross, Viola Davis and more women who continually make us wonder how they do it.
If there’s something women absolutely need right now, it’s an affordable sense of freedom and confidence.
NATIONAL HARBOR, MD—A few minutes into his CPAC speech Friday, esteemed and honest president Donald J. Trump said people were so excited to hear him speak that, “There are lines that go back six blocks. I tell you that because you won’t read about it.”
It is absurd that there should be any public discourse examining where people void their bladders and bowels in 2017, and yet that backward and childish discussion illustrates exactly where we are as a country. Thanks in no small part to the White House’s reversal of Obama’s 2016 directive ordering schools to grant…
Yesterday, besuited Nazi Richard Spencer got kicked out of CPAC for his “repugnant” views, which a CPAC spokesman claimed have “nothing to do with conservatism or what we do here.” Shortly prior to this, Spencer called a heckler “a moron who can’t dress.” Can Richard Spencer dress, though? Seems like maybe not?
The legendary trolls over at Madam Tussauds House of Horrors unveiled their latest wax disaster on Thursday: a statue of Meryl Streep at the 2012 Oscars, when she surprised everyone by taking home Best Actress for her Margaret Thatcher drag in The Iron Lady. While I can’t confirm or deny Karl Lagerfeld’s recent…
You would think if we kept making organizations the biggest dicks of the week, we’d eventually run out of dicks. Somehow, we think we’ll be fine.
Let me be frank with you for a moment. I was disappointed by the past three days of celebrity gossip. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday morning’s Dirt Bag columns didn’t excite me because, by and large, famous people have been keeping their cool. But—like they say about the weather in New England—if you don’t like…
You DVD collection may have just gotten into BDSM. Right now, if you bundle Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker on Blu-ray, you’ll immediately save $5. Rumor has it, Fifty Shades Darker wasn’t actually all that terrible, plus, at the very least, you could probably masturbate to the soundtrack.
A list of 746 names of the people “processed or detained” during the first weekend of President Donald Trump’s xenophobic nightmare of a travel ban was released for the first time Thursday.
The Wednesday night shooting of three men in a Kansas City sports bar is now being investigated as a possible hate crime after witnesses say the shooter yelled “get out of my country” before opening fire on two Indian men.
Caitlyn Jenner, a steadfast Republican, is disappointed. She’s upset that Donald Trump, a man who apparently promised her that he’d “protect the LGBTQ community,” has failed to do so.
Across this great nation of ours, members of Congress are holding town hall meetings during the recess as a way of connecting with their constituents. Rep. Louis Gohmert [R-Texas] —a man most recently heard accusing Hillary Clinton of having “special needs” —has decided to sit this one out. Why? What do you think…
