This Week in Tabloids: Miley in Danger of Drug-Induced Heart Attack

Welcome back to Midweek Madness, in which Callie Beusman and I try to snuggle up to tabloid gossip, using the silky sheets from the new issues of Ok!, In Touch, Life & Style, Us, and Star. This week: One cover features a sonogram "dramatization" to "prove" that Angelina Jolie is knocked up; Tori Spelling offers TMI; and… » 4/16/14 3:20pm 4/16/14 3:20pm

Two Birds, One Stone: Sanctions on Russia Might Put a Stop to Miley

Time to sit down and figure out what's happening in the Crimea, America, because it's finally got something to do with self-appointed Ambassador of Twerk Miley Cyrus. She's booked to perform at a sold-out venue in Finland, but the gig could run into trouble with newly instituted U.S. sanctions on Russia. » 4/03/14 10:00am 4/03/14 10:00am

The Dixie Chicks Cover 'Wrecking Ball' And It's Everything You'll Want

Miley's been doing a lot of covers lately. It seems that a new one pops up almost every week while she's on tour. First, she covered "Hey Ya," and then she brought out her glitter cap and cell phone (learn the lyrics, Miley!) to do "Landslide" to the delight of an arena full of fans (who sang along because you can't hear… » 3/29/14 6:15pm 3/29/14 6:15pm

Miley Cyrus Covers 'Landslide' And It's Pretty Awesome

Yes, she's wearing a shirt with her face on it (this is going to be a new fashion trend, I can feel it! I just ordered ten with my own face on them) and yes she's using her phone to read the lyrics to the song (because she hasn't done it in a while), but goddamn if this cover of landslide isn't utterly listenable.… » 3/22/14 3:00pm 3/22/14 3:00pm

Is the Bruise on Miley Cyrus's Butt Shaped Like a Horse!? YOU DECIDE!

So...are we there? Is this it? Have we reached it? Is analyzing the shape of Miley Cyrus's butt bruise the nadir (OR APEX) of absolutely bonkers auto-proctological online Miley reportage? I'm not sure. I THINK WE CAN GO EVEN DEEPER, GUYS. I BELIEVE IN US. Personally, I don't see the horse thing—I think the bruise looks … » 3/20/14 8:00pm 3/20/14 8:00pm

​Rihanna and Drake Are Back Together For Real This Time (Again)

Rihanna and the loneliest boy in Canada, Drake are officially a thing. The two mononyms have been "virtually inseparable" as Drake's been touring around in Europe. I am a fan of this news. Honestly, did anybody else get the feeling that Drake's latest album "Nothing was the Same" was basically one 15-track booty call to… » 3/16/14 11:30am 3/16/14 11:30am

Construction Worker Sues Over Miley Cyrus Tongue Injury

The tongue of Miley Cyrus — more famous than the girl it's attached to these days — has slithered its way into yet another controversy, this time becoming the subject of a fancy new lawsuit...sort of. Construction worker Charles Nicholas Sarris is now suing ShowFx Inc., the equipment company that made several of the… » 3/13/14 12:50pm 3/13/14 12:50pm

John K’s Art for Miley’s Bangerz Tour Is as Trippy as Expected

Anyone who had the pleasure of growing up watching The Ren & Stimpy Show witnessed so much crazy twisted visual debauchery they probably had no need to drop acid (and yet probably were more likely to do so). The creator of the batshit insane show, John Kricfalusi has one of the most recognizable visual styles, one that… » 3/09/14 3:30pm 3/09/14 3:30pm
