Lola Kirke, the Kirke sister who isn’t Jessa on Girls or married to Gossip Girl from Gossip Girl (that’s a spoiler, but I’m not sorry) but is the lead of Mozart in the Jungle, was interviewed by Vogue about her new movie, Gemini.

Television legend Mary Tyler Moore died Wednesday afternoon at the age of 80, just hours after it was reported that she was in grave condition at a Connecticut hospital.

Welcome to Midweek Madness, where we find the strength to shuffle into the magazine store after taking a week off to digest last Tuesday’s events, look beyond the apocalyptic headlines at eye level and lift our heads up to the lighter fare—the stuff that’s both less important than it ever was, and an oddly reassuring…
Welcome to Midweek Madness, where we go to the counter with our magazines, get asked if we need a bag, say no, and hear the cashier laugh in response. “I know you don’t need a bag,” he says. “You’re the guy who never needs a bag!”

In a masterfully sly move, Kim Kardashian has posted to her Snapchat account footage revealing that, despite what Taylor Swift has claimed, the pop star signed off on Kanye West’s lyrics for “Famous,” the first single from Life Of Pablo. The videos capture the phone conversation in which Kanye obtains Swift’s approval.

There is something uniquely odd about sitting in a theater of good-looking, affluent young people applauding the idea of increasing the number of well-trained, well-paid public defenders in the United States, but that’s what you’ll get at Dean Strang and Jerry Buting’s 20-city “Conversation on Justice” speaking tour.
