Drake Has a Kid!

Drake Has a Kid!

Remember Drake? It’s been quite some time since you or I or anyone really thought about him, save that perpetual thirsting after Rihanna , or his tendency to believe he is a player for the Raptors. There was also that business with Pusha T in 2018, when he was accused of being a secret, deadbeat dad. Pusha T was later vindicated in this accusation, although Drake would contend with the...

Chained to the Algorithm

Chained to the Algorithm

After a weekend spent indoors with my face glued to my phone, scrolling through Instagram’s collective catalog of boredom and anxiety, I fell prey to its algorithm. I clicked on at least seven ads for sweatpants, leisurewear, telemedicine services, and online fitness workouts, spooked every time by the accuracy of what the machine was trying to sell: products, of course, but also spiritual...

Just a Reminder You Can Play The Oregon Trail at Any Time

Just a Reminder You Can Play The Oregon Trail at Any Time

This weekend, perhaps due to an influx of Animal Crossing screenshots flooding my social media feeds, I felt like I wanted to play a game. Specifically, I felt an unexplainable urge to play The Oregon Trail, the classic computer game that puts you in the shoes of a pioneer heading out West.

I remember playing The Oregon Trail as a kid, as it was the only computer game available on my school...

New York Hospital System Will Let Partners Into Birthing Rooms, After All

New York Hospital System Will Let Partners Into Birthing Rooms, After All

New York hospitals will permit people giving birth during the coronavirus pandemic to have partners present, despite a major hospital system previously instituting a ban on all visitors.

Last week, NewYork-Presbyterian, one of the country’s largest hospital systems, said that for the safety of its patients and health care workers, visitors would no longer be allowed in the hospital. That...

Jerry Falwell, Jr.'s Liberty University May Be Experiencing a Covid-19 Outbreak

Jerry Falwell, Jr.'s Liberty University May Be Experiencing a Covid-19 Outbreak

Well, no one could see this coming: Liberty University, which reopened after its spring break this month despite a raging global pandemic, is now full of sick students.

The New York Times reports that Jerry Falwell, Jr., avid Trump supporter and abject disbeliever in science and the power of disease, reopened his Lynchburg, Virginia University last week, despite the fact that universities all...

The Bon App Recap: 'We're All Dealing With This Pile of Shit Together'

The Bon App Recap: 'We're All Dealing With This Pile of Shit Together'

Well, it looks like we finally have the answer to how the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen team plans to handle the current situation and the answer is, just like the rest of us! Last week we had Trixie Mattel, which felt like an absolute dream, whereas this week we had Zoom meetings and burnt pizzas on the menu. Definitely less dream state and much more real life. Watching the Test Kitchen team WFH...

What Am I Supposed to Do Without The Great British Baking Show?

What Am I Supposed to Do Without The Great British Baking Show?

About a year ago I taught myself how to make custard and choux pastry from scratch, and then proceeded to make eighteen gorgeous eclairs, dip them in chocolate, and eat all but a few in just under 48 hours. Ever since I have been haunted by the urge to recreate that glorious devastation, but have been able to hold myself back with the most paper-thin self-control, largely held in place by...

So Was Jeanine Pirro Wasted Last Night Or What?

So Was Jeanine Pirro Wasted Last Night Or What?

It’s an indisputable fact that Cecily Strong is a better judge Jeanine Pirro than judge Jeanine Pirro could ever hope to be. In fact, Strong’s impression of the judge on SNL is, canonically, the only way I’m able to recollect Pirro at all (outside of that one appearance on The View).

Last night, however, it looked as though the actual Pirro was attempting to give Strong a run for her money...

Does Trump Think We Can Shoot the Coronavirus?

Does Trump Think We Can Shoot the Coronavirus?

In the face of the covid-19 outbreak in the United States, there’s been quite a bit of discussion about what services are indeed considered essential, and therefore able to remain open and operational during the various stages of a shutdown. Bars and restaurants? Not so much . Abortion care? It depends on where you live . Gun shops? Crucial.

On Saturday, the Trump Administration, potentially...

There Could Be 100 People in a Room and Apparently None of Them Are Paying the Joanne Trattoria Staff

There Could Be 100 People in a Room and Apparently None of Them Are Paying the Joanne Trattoria Staff

I’ve never been to Joanne Trattoria, the Upper West Side restaurant owned by Joe Germanotta, perhaps better known as Lady Gaga’s dad, although I have friends who’ve made pilgrimages to it as though it were some kind of gay landmark in New York City. From my understanding, Joanne Trattoria serves very adequate Italian food, which is all well and good considering my favorite Italian dining...

Saturday Night Social: RIP Takaya the Sea Wolf, You Were Better Than Us All

Saturday Night Social: RIP Takaya the Sea Wolf, You Were Better Than Us All

Until news broke of his passing, I honestly can’t say that I knew who Takaya the sea wolf was. I also can’t say I knew that “sea wolfs” were a thing, but I’m glad now that I know. I’m also now entirely devastated about Takaya’s passing, having read this gorgeous write-up about his life and heartbreaking death in The Guardian.

Most of Takaya’s story is one of resilience, survival, and...

Florida Man Defies Odds, Finally Does Something Good

Florida Man Defies Odds, Finally Does Something Good

It’s not often that I get to write good news about my home state of Florida, which is fair because good news so infrequently comes out of the hellhole (said with love) that is the Sunshine State. However, when we’re not busy derailing the course of democracy, eating people’s faces, or shaving our legs in public pools, it turns out that Floridians do, in fact, have some good left in them. Or,...

Personally, I Would Like to Wash My Hands of These Celebrity PSAs

Personally, I Would Like to Wash My Hands of These Celebrity PSAs

It feels like only yesterday (devastatingly, because it was) that a group of celebrities were joining together to instruct the public on how to effectively wash their hands. The stars of Contagion, a film you might have heard about with more frequency recently, Kate Winslet, Laurence Fishburne, Matt Damon, and Jennifer Ehle all got together, separately, and offered up their sage wisdom...

Sure He's in Drag, but Where Did Bad Bunny Get the Hand Sanitizer in His New Music Video?

Sure He's in Drag, but Where Did Bad Bunny Get the Hand Sanitizer in His New Music Video?

Bad Bunny’s new music video for “Yo Perreo Sola” ends with a PSA I can best paraphrase by quoting Demi Lovato, “GET A JOB. STAY AWAY FROM HER.” Directly, the edict reads, “Si no quiere bailar contigo, respeta, ella perra sola,” which, translated to English, means, “If she doesn’t want to dance with you, respect her, she twerks alone.”

It’s important for obvious reasons but particularly...

Will Someone Please Consider Wendy Williams's Boobs in All of This

Will Someone Please Consider Wendy Williams's Boobs in All of This

Wendy Williams, faux-cigarette smoker , literal shit talker , and self-described bon vivant (have we figured out if she’s figured out what that means yet?) is a woman with her finger on the pulse of what’s going on in the entertainment world. Or, at least, she’s a woman with her finger on the pulse of what she thinks about what’s going on in the entertainment world. And, if you’ve got a TV...

The Time You Saved Someone From Despair

The Time You Saved Someone From Despair

Listen, everyone’s depressed right about now. It’s justifiable. Instead of continuing to wallow in our collective misfortune, I’d like to use this week’s Pissing Contest to reflect on the people who’ve helped us in other periods of hardship. When you really down in the dumps, who was there for you? How did they pull you out, or help you get what you needed? This week, the Jezebel staff wants...

Don't You Dare Pull Any April Fools Shit This Year, Brands

Don't You Dare Pull Any April Fools Shit This Year, Brands

Even though it feels as though a single day in self-isolation lasts five years, April is right around the corner, as is the most annoying holiday ever invented: April Fools’ Day. Any other year, April 1 would be a typical day where suddenly all your loved ones become untrustworthy degenerates. Is cousin John really moving, or is he just pulling a prank? It could go either way. The worst...

When Will Britney Spears Return to TikTok?

When Will Britney Spears Return to TikTok?

Very few celebrities are actually good at TikTok, mostly because their attempts to pander to increasingly younger fanbases read as thirsty and transparently out-of-touch. Britney Spears, in contrast, was a ray of light on the platform, offering an unfiltered look at the enigma that is her interior life. Sadly, she’s been absent for a month, and her last run of consecutive posts were...

Coronavirus Is Pushing Reddit's Relationship_Advice to a Breaking Point

Coronavirus Is Pushing Reddit's Relationship_Advice to a Breaking Point

“Anyone else breaking up through the pandemic?” reads one subject line. “My [23F] partner [24M] isn’t taking quarantine seriously and keeps making unnecessary trips to see his family,” reads another.

Reddit’s relationship_advice subreddit has always been a melange of the mundane—women fretting over their boyfriends’ porn viewing habits, soliciting the audience on whether partners should know...

Please Get These Coronavirus PSAs From the Stars of Contagion Out of My Face!

Please Get These Coronavirus PSAs From the Stars of Contagion Out of My Face!

In a horrific turn of events, I have watched Contagion at least three times this past month—once for work, once for pleasure, and once, ambiently, as my sister was watching it in the shared common space of our bunker. I do not want to think about Contagion any more than I have to, but these goddamn PSAs from the stars of that film are making me do so and I reject that notion with every fiber...
