Hilary Duff's New Single: This Is What Dreams Are Made Of

Hilary Duff's Dignity was one of the best albums of the late 2000s and I will fight anyone who disagrees.

Little Big Town's 'Girl Crush': a Perfect Storm of Country Controversy

In December, the band Little Big Town released "Girl Crush," the second single off their album Pain Killer. The track title wasn't exactly going to endear it to those who chafe at the term "girl crush."

We're Totally Buying Something From Oprah's Personal Auction

Oprah is opening up her vault of fancy rich lady wares and holding an auction to rid herself of a few of her least favorite things. The items, culled from her Chicago home, make both zero sense and all the sense at the same time.
