Donald Trump had won the presidency, ushering in an era of precedented but no less upsetting racism and national stupidity; I was stressed and burned out; as my biological clock struck 27ish, some gnarly cystic acne began to torment my lip and chin area. I was in a…
Today the only first daughter her dad recognizes turns 36 years old. It hardly seems possible that Ivanka Trump even has an age, insofar that she and her family have been thrust unto the American public for what feels like eternity, or eternal damnation. And yet, there is ample documentation of her growth from…
Happy Bey Day, everybody!
My babes, today is a day for celebration. On April 9, in the Year of Our Lord 2017, Kristen Stewart—our newly shorn, fuzzy-headed seductress—turns 27. And that, to me, seems reason enough to focus on how extremely hot and talented she is.
Please be informed that Doris Day’s long-form birth certificate has been unearthed and she is 95, not 93. Said Day in a statement, “I’ve always said that age is just a number and I have never paid much attention to birthdays, but it’s great to finally know how old I really am!” Decades since her Hollywood glory days…
In April of 1994, Nirvana frontman and grunge pioneer Kurt Cobain died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was 27 at his time of death. And though few things are as inexorable as time’s passing, it’s remarkable to think that today he would have celebrated his 50th birthday.
Happy birthday, Rihanna.

Mae West was born on this day, in Brooklyn, in 1893. This is a great excuse to take yourself out somewhere saucy, throw a fur stole across your shoulder—faux is fine—and raise a glass of champagne.
How would you celebrate your 87th birthday? Splitting an enormous cake with your 47 grandchildren and great-grandchildren? A pottery class? Jack Daniels? For Janis Lefebre’s 87th birthday, her family bought her a ticket to go skydiving.

Sit down, my fellow children of the ‘90s. Today, rapper and leap year baby Ja Rule enters into the fifth decade of his life. But if the thought of Ja turning 40 makes you dizzy, take solace: according to the leap year schedule he’s merely 10.
Dolly Parton—that sugary sweet, tremendously talented, and heavily tattooed angel who fell to earth (either heaven or the Smokey Mountains)—turns 70 years old today so let’s pump up our hair (because the higher the hair, the closer to God), push out our tits, break out our favorite Dolly albums, and celebrate! It’s…
If you’re looking for a reason to binge on The Golden Girls, then your search is over. Throw yourself a party in honor of actress Betty White, who turns 94 today.
