76-year-old titan of smooth jams Smokey Robinson and his wife Frances recently started a skincare line bearing the eh name of Skinphonic. No matter, because the names for the his-and-hers products within the line are most certainly not prompting any clown to shed tears.
I liked nine of the 14 songs on the deluxe version of Lady Gaga’s fifth studio album, Joanne well enough, and will listen to three or four of those with some regularity over the next few months.

The UK will posthumously pardon thousands of men who were convicted for consensual same-sex activities under life-destroying laws that have since been repealed.

How much time should kids be allowed to stare into their screens like zombies?

Billy Bush no longer works at Today. We’ve known this for days. But an action NBC took on Thursday marked the final nail in the coffin of Bush’s time on the show.
