Pitbull and Prince Royce Think Your Body Is Timeless

Of all the male heartthrobs currently navigating the Latino pop charts, Prince Royce is the one with the dreamiest, most seductive voice. I know, Romeo Santos has more emotional range, but indulge me here—Royce’s tone is surer and more buttery, which suits the poppier bachata tones he gravitates towards. » 5/04/15 6:20pm 7 minutes ago

Who 'Grammed It Best - Martha Stewart or Taylor Swift?

I Went to a Simulated Teen Drinking Party and It Freaked Me the Fuck Out

I’m far from the target audience for the simulated teen drinking party I attended last weekend—that audience being freaked-out parents who want to see what really goes on at the hormone-fueled ragers their children are just starting to attend—but let me start by saying that the whole thing was very effective. I was… » 5/04/15 3:45pm Today 3:45pm

Why Are We Still Moving to California?

This weekend, the New York Times published two laughably conflicting articles about California—one from the Style section on the happy-go-lucky migration westward of New York City’s “creative class,” and one that looks at a state going brown, well into the fourth year of its historically ruinous drought. » 5/04/15 2:15pm Today 2:15pm
