The delicious, longstanding beef between Aretha Franklin and Patti LaBelle, continues: the Queen of Soul has announced plans to ready her own soul food line to compete with Ms. Patti’s pies.
“Evil Baby Ariana Grande Strikes Back at Media” is what this headline could read, too.
Vegas used to be the city where ancient icons went to live out their days singing torch songs for chain-smoking 100-year-olds who needed a break from the nickel slots. Since the corporate EDM explosion of the 2010s, however, it has become 100% more habitable for those of us under the age of 90—a locale of club…
It's the war of the Divas, everyone! With actual Diva Bette Midler and my brother's favorite singer Ariana Grande squaring off to engage in the worst blood feud known to Hollywood. My brother is going to be so, so pissed.
I can't recall a public performance more divisive than Aretha Franklin's cover of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" on the Sept. 29 episode of The Late Show with David Letterman. The conversations I had about it fell into two distinct camps: those who loved and those who hated it. Both were adamant. One person on the…
Patti LaBelle was the guest on last night's episode of Oprah's Next Chapter. She regularly furrowed her brow at Oprah's questions, often answering them with a side-eye and a "What!" It was, in short, everything you'd want it to be. Moreover, it was everything, period.

In a white afro. On the talk show of a woman who was once among the greatest rappers of her time.
Sometimes, when the moon is in the seventh house and Jupiter aligns with Mars, gay icons Cher and Kathy Griffin hang out. The two women have now combined forces on behalf of the activist website Actually.org (which has previously featured Obama supporters Sarah Silverman and Rosie Perez) in a PSA called "Don't Let…
On last night's season premiere of T&T, 4-year-old pageant contestant Makenzie initially seemed like a soul-eating, tantrum-throwing nightmare, but through her rubber-necking demands, you could see an assertive, take-no-shit attitude shining through. Sometimes brats grow up to be successful ball-busters.
Writer Marisa Meltzer, author of the new book 'Girl Power: The Nineties Revolution in Music', has curated a miniseries of contemporary women's music for us this week. After the jump, Marisa's fifth and final feature: the most iconic pop divas.
Last night on Larry King Live, Mariah tried to explain the term "diva." She started out making sense and then, somewhere along the line, cupcakes got involved. Oh, also: she stuck her finger in her cleavage and then smelled it.
The other day, I saw a toddler on the subway sporting a rhinestone-bedecked t-shirt bearing the words "Baby Bitch. Bow Down." I declined her kind offer. But not because, like some people, I think she's ruining society.
Sarah Silverman doesn't like divas, whom she believes are nearly as broken as the women she sees at Hef's place while high with Bill Maher. (Hitler, by the way, wasn't a diva, just a cunt.)
A big story in the New York Times wonders whether the big-budget upcoming movie Charlie Wilson's War will be able to overcome the fact that it's about, like, history and politics and a seemingly obscure would-be footnote in Cold War history that fatefully happened to set the stage for the current War On Terror or…
