Your best friend in this bleak abyss of a world Jennifer Lawrence will not be taking your phone calls, for a change.


She recently told Empire magazine that she plans to take a break from acting because she's really overworked herself this year, what with the winning a lot of awards and starring in two giant franchises and scaring Taylor Swift in formal wear. "On the last day of Hunger Games, I'm going to turn off my phone for a year!" she said. :'( Bye for now, J-Law. H.A.G.S. [MTV]

"What's the deal with diversity in comedy?" wondered Jerry Seinfeld. He concluded, "Who cares?"

"People think it's the census or something," he said during a BuzzFeed Brews interview. "This has gotta represent the actual pie chart of America? Who cares? It's just funny. Funny is the world that I live in. You're funny, I'm interested. You're not funny, I'm not interested. I have no interest in gender or race or anything like that." Must be nice to just get to decide to not ever think about gender or race!!!! (If you want to kill your soul slowly and agonizing, read the YouTube comments on this video: "People who point out race are usually the racists," etc.) [Vulture]

  • In a hard-hitting interview, Zayn from One Direction was asked which member of his band farts the most. He answered that it's Niall and then kindly elaborated: "The thing with him is that they're really noisy, but they don't actually smell that bad." You really do learn something every day. [ONTD]

"I'm a male white comedian, and obviously I succeeded only because I'm super duper funny. I have to believe that if others do not succeed it's only because they are not funny, because otherwise it means I have to think less of myself and my ego feels hurt. To me, the possibility of changing and engaging in creating a more fair world is not worth a slight hurt to my ego." — Jerry Seinfeld
