American Duke Charlie Sheen Is Engaged (Again)

The Sheen men— Martin, Charlie and Emilio — are a prime example of American celebrity nobility, so, to mock the absurd way actual nobles and royals are still celebrated in certain frivolous, Grinch-shaped (concentrate on the bottom and imagine a Santa cap) islands around the world, we ought to spend this Sunday… » 2/16/14 11:30am 2/16/14 11:30am

Justin Bieber's Totally Not Retiring, Say Justin Bieber's Party People

Sure, Justin Bieber said he's retiring, but how much can we really trust Justin Bieber? He drives around in a customized Batmobile and abandons pet monkeys in German airports. I'll bet he told that monkey, "Hang out here, bro. I'll be right back. Here's a hundo for the duty-free." That monkey is probably still smoking… » 12/29/13 11:30am 12/29/13 11:30am

Justin Bieber: Internet's Best Troll, or Batman's New Robin?

I'll be honest: sometime around the monkey-abandoning incident in Germany, I hopped aboard the Justin Bieber hatemobile, which is basically just an overloaded jalopy driven by a foul-tempered orangutan named #1JoostinHatrr (apes can't spell). I was convinced we were watching the very public entropy of a too-successful… » 9/14/13 11:15am 9/14/13 11:15am

Amanda Bynes Had Nose Surgery and You Didn't Even Send Her Flowers

You totally forgot to send Amanda Bynes those get-well-soon flowers you'd been planning to send her the day of her penultimate nose surgery (just one more to go!), didn't you?

Anna Kendrick and Meryl Streep May Star in the Into the Woods Movie

So, Rob Marshall (the guy who gave us the Chicago movie and the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean) is adapting the creepfest Broadway musical Into the Woods for the screen. Excited? Scared?

Who Wants a Third Basic Instinct with Sharon Stone as a Porn Magnate?

In a movie-making era of pre-branded, built-in-audience features, the sequel, remake, and adaptation reign supreme.

People are leery of strangers, and with good reason: strangers are totally unpredictable, a lesson most of… » 5/22/13 10:30pm 5/22/13 10:30pm

Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Poker Face Is Completely Inscrutable

Political Stratego champion Hillary Clinton is frustrating potential opponents in the 2016 presidential race by keeping her plans super secret.
