Bruce Jenner: 'Do You Have Any Idea What I've Been Going Through?'

In a feverishly anticipated two-hour interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC, Bruce Jenner confirmed tonight that he is a transgender woman. But Jenner made it clear that his transition is not yet completed and that when the interview was filmed, he still preferred the “he” pronoun. He told Sawyer it was the last interview… » 4/25/15 12:20am Today 12:20am

SeaWorld Barbie Is Out, Ava DuVernay Barbie Is In 

Mattel is discontinuing its Seaworld Trainer Barbie line, Page Six reports, partly in response to concerns from animal rights activists that SeaWorld mistreats its orcas. Simultaneously, the company has announced a new doll to honor director Ava DuVernay, one of six “sheroes” (others include Lucky editor Eva Chen and… » 4/24/15 7:50pm Yesterday 7:50pm

Jonah From Veep Practices for the White House Correspondents Dinner


The White House Correspondents dinner—that bizarre annual ritual in which celebrities are smushed in between politicians to temporarily relieve Washington from its own bitter, bloated, halitosis-ridden reality—is tomorrow night, and in a spot-on video spoof for Vanity Fair, Veep star (and friend of Jezebel) Timothy… » 4/24/15 7:30pm Yesterday 7:30pm

Would You Call Your Fave Musician for Love Advice? Well, Now You Can! 

We currently occupy an era in which a great many pop artists are thirsting to associate themselves with the latest technologies—Madonna releasing new videos on Snapchat and Meerkat, Jay-Z’s acquisition of Tidal, etc.—with the assumption that these things will make them more accessible to the youth market or, at the… » 4/24/15 6:50pm Yesterday 6:50pm

Diet Pepsi Will Soon Be Sans Aspartame

These days there are so many nutritional fads and anxieties—so many rules about what we should or shouldn’t eat, what’s healthy and what’s not—that worrying about the artificial sweetener aspartame seems almost... quaint. Retro, even, like polyester pantsuits. Well, it’ll soon be a thing of the past—in Diet Pepsi, at… » 4/24/15 6:30pm Yesterday 6:30pm

Future Surgeon Farrah Abraham Tries, Fails To Burn Co-Star on Twitter

There’s nothing worse than someone who thinks they’re clever and mean when they’re really just kind of awful at jokes. Future top plastic surgeon of America Farrah Abraham must have missed that memo though because she tried to burn a Teen Mom’s baby daddy on Twitter and her insult was harshly de-nied. » 4/24/15 6:10pm Yesterday 6:10pm

Pakistan Fashion Week Was a Study in the Intricate and the Sublime

In April, Pakistan was host to two separate fashion weeks: one in Karachi at the beginning of the month, and another in Lahore held by the Pakistan Fashion Design Council, which just ended this week. If your idea of fashion perfection is centered purely on craft and textiles for luxuriating, I invite you to look at… » 4/24/15 5:50pm Yesterday 5:50pm

These Are the Jokes That Caused Actors To Walk Off Adam Sandler's Set

Two days ago, Native American extras on Adam Sandler’s new Netflix movie The Ridiculous Six walked off the set due to the film’s portrayal of Native Americans. In response, Netflix defended the film as a “broad satire” in which those being made fun of are “in on the joke.” So, who’s right? Well, we got our hands on… » 4/24/15 5:25pm Yesterday 5:25pm

Applauding a Convicted Rapist for Lip Syncing 'Push It' Seems Weird

I’m as indifferent to Spike’s new reality show Lip Sync Battle as I’m ambivalent about think pieces (which is to say very indifferent and very ambivalent), which is why I’m going to (disingenuously) phrase this as a question instead of a statement: Does Spike truly think it’s a good idea to have Mike Tyson, a… » 4/24/15 4:50pm Yesterday 4:50pm

How to Get Others to See You the Way You See Yourself

Each of us has a narrative we’re peddling about ourselves, an image we think we present to the world: he’s gracious and funny; she’s tough but fair. But does this story line up with how other people see us? According to a psychologist who’s just written a book about the mechanics of being misunderstood, the answer… » 4/24/15 4:30pm Yesterday 4:30pm

Genius Gina Rodriguez Once Faked a Pregnancy To Skip a Chipotle Line

There are plenty of ways to hack your Chipotle experience. You could order a veggie burrito to get free guacamole, ask for free tortillas or taco shells on the side if you order a bowl, or get the infamous quesarito and make everyone behind you mad. But all of those are stomach-related tricks, and will do nothing to… » 4/24/15 4:10pm Yesterday 4:10pm

Dang, VH1's Barely Famous Is Surprisingly Great (!?)

The season 1 finale of VH1’s Barely Famous, a mockumentary/reality parody starring quasi-celebrity sisters Erin and Sara Foster, aired this week. It’s flown slightly under the critical radar, but this frothy, shiny, altogether unchallenging show is counterintuitively, undeniably good. » 4/24/15 3:50pm Yesterday 3:50pm

After Lawuit, Transgender Teen Can Wear Makeup in DMV Photo

A South Carolina teen who filed a lawsuit against the South Carolina DMV after being denied the ability to wear makeup in her license photo has successfully settled out of court, and in effect, has paved the way for other trans individuals in the state to do the same if they choose, reports NPR. » 4/24/15 3:30pm Yesterday 3:30pm

Perfect Pussy Tour Diary, Part 2: Turbans, Sparklers, and Deerhoof (!)

So far, our (hungover, sleep deprived) heroes are, in relative terms, coasting: none of the usual van trouble, broken cell phones, or robberies of tours past. This is not to say that all is right with the stars. Let’s watch as they cross an invisible border to a magical land where people still smoke cigarettes… » 4/24/15 3:10pm Yesterday 3:10pm
