America’s bizarre obsession with Starbucks holiday cups continues this week and finally, I’m here for it.
When I was working nights at this very website, I spent a lot of time after my shift was over watching YouTube makeup tutorials until my brain felt clear enough to finally fall asleep. That habit, which has continued even though I no longer work nights and can reset my brain in a variety of other ways, has likely led…
On Wednesday, Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls put a Texas woman on blast on his private Facebook page, posting an image of her car’s “Fuck Trump” decal sticker in an effort to find her. On Thursday the driver, identified as Karen Fonseca, was arrested on an outstanding warrant.
If you love something, set it free; if it comes back, it’s yours. That’s true of many things (significant others, boomerangs), and less true of others (house cats, the contents of Pandora’s Box). But when it comes to fanny packs, specifically that belonging to living legend Diana Ross, it turns out that those sage…
It’s been seven years since Liz Phair released an album (the unfortunate Funstyle, which would get blown to pieces these days for cultural appropriation) and all I’ve ever wanted from her is to return to her early ’90s roots and put out a comeback record.

This year Katy Perry was set to perform at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai, but there’s an unexpected twist—she’s banned from China “indefinitely.” Ahhh!
As you know, Senator Al Franken is the latest high-profile man to be accused of sexual assault. Guess which bundle of flaxen-haired impetigo has roused himself to make a tweet?
You’re the Worst, a show about two shitheads who somehow fall in love with one another despite each being terrible, will air for one more season. And then that’s it.
It wasn’t until I was walking to the clinic, wasting an hour of my day to get a test I shouldn’t have needed to get, that I went from annoyed to pissed. It wasn’t until I saw my blood filling a syringe, and willed it to not be infected, that I went from concerned to chest-clenched freaked out, realizing what I’d…
The fallout from Harvey Weinstein being outed as a sexual predator has been more explosive than anyone could have predicted. More than two dozen other high-profile men have been accused of misdeeds, a fact that is both uplifting (women are speaking out, and action is being taken) as it is depressing (is anyone not…
On Thursday, New York City voted to criminalize revenge porn. That means the nonconsensual dissemination of intimate photos and videos online is now a misdemeanor offense in the city and is punishable by a $1,000 fine and up to one year in jail.
