The Eternal Debate: Can You Ever Really Be Friends with Your Ex?

This week's episode of Girls was a marvel, offering a perfect snapshot of the horror of the rebound date, and more importantly, reviving the age-old question of whether you can ever really be "friends" with an ex. On the latter quandary, I say the jury is still out. » 3/03/15 5:00pm 3/03/15 5:00pm

Congratulations, Taylor Swift, on Your First Black Friends 

The artist formerly known as country singer Taylor Swift had a great weekend. On Friday she was on the receiving end of a happy birthday serenade from shade queen Aretha Franklin.

How Many of These Odd Friendships Are You Stuck In Right Now?

Frandz. You know the deal: Easy to make. Hard to keep. Even harder to make after a certain point so you better hope you have some good ones now. There is perhaps no better way to take stock of the "good ones" than by looking at all the weird or even unhealthy friendships you're in right now. » 12/13/14 2:50pm 12/13/14 2:50pm

Let's Find Taylor Swift a Black Friend

Taylor Swift has a lot of famous friends and girlfriend aims high too. Taylor's squad consists of supermodels, Oscar nominees and a Penn State grad. What I've noticed, however, is a glaring lack of black people in her posse. » 12/03/14 12:10pm 12/03/14 12:10pm

A Portrait of Connie Britton and Kirsten Gillibrand as Young Roommates

Rolling Stone has done the very important (?) work of ranking Taylor Swift's friends, from most famous to least famous and also in terms of coolness. Comprehensive, but also highly debatable. For instance: what authority does Rolling Stone have to declare Taylor's oldest childhood friend not cool? They don't know her.… » 9/15/14 12:00pm 9/15/14 12:00pm

Dear White People, You Need More Black Friends

Hey white people, you really need to step your game up and get some more black friends. And by friends, I mean someone who cares enough about you to call you on your shit and vice versa.

Toddler and WWII Vet Are Best Friends, Will Melt Your Heart Into Goo

Emmett (toddler) and Erling (WWII Vet) bonded over a tomato patch. Now they're best friends who ride bikes, play croquet (omgomgomg), and race mowers. This is probably going to turn into a TV movie and I will watch it and cry every time I have a bad day. (Which is most days because I am a grumpy and disagreeable… » 7/10/14 11:40am 7/10/14 11:40am
