Gender-swapping superhero's creator responds to right-wing backlash

In SheZow, a 12-year-old boy accidentally puts on a magic ring that turns him into a female superhero, known as SheZow. It's an excuse for lots of fish-out-of-water comedy and some personal growth. Or, if you're Breitbart News, it's a left-wing conspiracy. We talked to SheZow's creator about the controversy. » 5/30/13 3:32pm 5/30/13 3:32pm

David Letterman to Lindsay Lohan: 'Aren't You Supposed to Be in Rehab?'

Tonight on Letterman, the main man concern trolls Li Lo, asking some very personal questions she says they "didn't discuss in the pre-interview". Which, if true, sucks of Letterman — these shows are basically scripted and to veer off course in hopes of getting some sort of breakdown on camera is a dick move.

Funny Lady Emily Heller Is a Psychic to the Stars in Hilarious New…

At least, this is what I believe will be happening. I'm not totally sure, but if the first episode with the delightful and also extremely sexually attractive Reggie Watts is any indication, then I am correct, and also: ROWR. (You can't see me but I'm doing pelvic thrusts in your direction.) (You're welcome) (I'm… » 3/19/13 9:30pm 3/19/13 9:30pm

Inside the Mind of the Man Who Wrote Bitch, Are You Retarded?

Reason dictates that a book claiming to want to "help women" probably shouldn't attack them in the title. And yet a self-help book titled Bitch, Are You Retarded? exists. When we first came across it, we were merely annoyed; women of the world were in extreme danger of rolling their eyes more than Alex McCord at a… » 2/09/13 11:00am 2/09/13 11:00am

Jennifer Lawrence Loves Rob Schneider, Dancing Like a Dad, and M&M's…

With each passing sassafras interview, Jennifer Lawrence is endearing herself to my heart. Is that even possible? Because it's happening. In an interview with the New York Times, she talkes about so many things that make me swoon — including Woody Harrelson's teeth, being unfazed by the Oscars, and her new movie in… » 11/12/12 11:45pm 11/12/12 11:45pm

You Need To Be Watching This Woman's Videos

I first came across DW Diaz — the oblivious, hipster starlet/actress/model/designer who is the alter-ego of comedian Daniella Pineda — on Twitter. A strange handle sent me a link to the above video, in which Diaz launches a tacky, Native American-inspired clothing line. "To me," explains Diaz, "'Genocide' means out… » 10/26/11 6:10pm 10/26/11 6:10pm
