On Sunday night, while collecting an award on behalf of her daughter—a young upstart named Beyoncé—at the BET Awards, Tina Knowles thanked her ex-husband Mathew Knowles. “I also want to thank her father, who taught her the business of music,” she said.
While I have been witness to many things at Beyoncé concerts through the years—screaming, fainting, making out, people too tipsy from drink, too tipsy from smoke, too tipsy from the emotional magnitude of seeing their Queen Bey in her natural and unfiltered life form—I can honestly say I have never before seen anyone…
I will start by explaining: I drank too much last Wednesday.
For a man who is such an important father figure for bigots all across this great country, Donald Trump is not acting very fatherly.
Concerned father Stephen Stewart recently purchased space in Christianity Today to advertise his “virgin” daughter Rachel as the ideal, god-fearing mate. He did not, however, see reason to seek approval from his daughter, or to even let her know.
Tonight Vanessa Hudgens performs the role of iconic bad girl Rizzo in Fox’s production of Grease: Live!. But she does so with the new and painful knowledge that her father, Greg Hudgens, passed away on Saturday night.
The nicest thing I remember doing for my dad when I was 19 was buying him a new set of grilling utensils. He loved that set, and used it to cook delicious meals for years. Wait—come to think of it, someone else gave him those. I guess I don’t remember the nicest thing I did for my dad when I was 19, because the nicest…

One of the most essentialist views about the difference between men and women is that women are naturally better at dealing with feelings. But even though studies have suggested this is false, is it worth pushing men to split this kind of work, just as we have with housework and diaper-changing?
World-famous photographer Terry Richardson is about to add a new job title to his resume: world-famous dad! It was reported today that Richardson’s former assistant, Alexandra Bolotow, is pregnant, and that she’s “about three or four months along.” Aw, a spring baby!
Other older marrieds sometimes ask me the secret to having a husband who does easily half, arguably more, of the childrearing and cleaning/cooking in our house. The secret is I married someone who is 33 years old. Good news for people like me: Millennial dudes are the most engaged, involved fathers in history. Bad…
The hot new trend in fatherhood, according to the New York Times, is a super-exclusive 45-minute course on the Upper West Side of New York City called “Dad Braiding 101.” Welcome to the Thursday Style section!
It’s Father’s Day, so let this be the year we all finally recognize that dads and their goofy dad stuff—monster faces, silliness, mockery; perhaps even dad jokes, if the judges are feeling lenient—could be as essential to childrearing as any of that mom stuff. Or, at least, that a Platonic ideal of “mom” is not the…
Until recently, I’d never been on the website AskMen.com, I suppose largely because I never had the occasion to ask a man anything. The site’s tagline touts that it is a place where men can become better men, though on my first visit I’m already suspicious that any of my questions will be answered or that I will…
