Don't Think a Woman Should Be Doctor Who? Jodie Whittaker 'Can't Even Begin to Debate That' 

Don't Think a Woman Should Be <i>Doctor Who</i>? Jodie Whittaker 'Can't Even Begin to Debate That' 

Social media bad? Don’t go on it.

That’s one of the major takeaways from this New York Times feature on Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker , the first female Doctor in the show’s 55-year history.

While fans have generally welcomed Whittaker into the role, culture reporter David Itzkoff notes, the actor has had her naysayers. But Whittaker doesn’t seem too bothered by critics who think Doctor Whos...

Frank Ocean's Giving Away Free Merch to Fans Who Voted

Frank Ocean's Giving Away Free Merch to Fans Who Voted

Forgoing the usual strategies to get people to vote (threatening to kill us, telling us we want to fuck the vote), Frank Ocean is trying a different approach. He’s giving away free stuff.

According to a flyer Pitchfork spotted on his Tumblr, people who live in either Houston, Miami, Atlanta, or Dallas can bring proof that they voted to a pop-up shop in their city and get free merch. The flyer...

Bandai Thinks I'm Stupid

Bandai Thinks I'm Stupid

Bandai’s bringing back the original Tamagotchis—like, literally the original Tamagotchis. Variety reports that the toy manufacturer will soon start selling the virtual pet gadget, complete with its original 1997 programming and original 1997 packaging, for $19.99, which is wild considering it only cost $17.99 in 1997! With inflation, that original selling point would be more like $28.25 in...

Remembering Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Who Died in 1818

Remembering Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Who Died in 1818

Though Rudolf Gunvaldr Hjálmarrssøn Renskräshål (1804-1818) is perhaps better known as Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer , it is unclear whether he ever led Santa Claus’ sleigh, much less possessed the “very shiny” red nose Gene Autry sang about in 1949.

What we know about Renskräshål is that he was a father, a husband, a son. We know he was a pretty big boy, if not a very big one. But, like the...

Jason Momoa Bad, Naked Mole Rat Queen Good

Jason Momoa Bad, Naked Mole Rat Queen Good

Almost exactly five years ago, former Jezebel staffer Lindy West wrote our site’s very first dedicated blog post to Jason Momoa, calling the actor “Earth’s hunkiest horse-lord.” The implication of said blog post was that he was good, and he was, at the time. But it turns out that he is bad. People are either good or bad, and Jason Momoa, we have decided, is actually bad.

Last week, we learned...

116 Ways to Ruin a Perfectly Fine Dress

LeAnne Locken from The Real Housewives of Dallas popped by Page Six’s office to model all the ways one might wear L’Infinity, the “ultimate little black dress” she released earlier this year.

The dress, if you’re not familiar, comes in parts. It’s basically a black bodycon sheath dress with a bunch of scarfy attachments you can snap on and off various parts of the base.

By playing around with...

Gia Gunn's Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent Make Drag Race Worth Watching

Gia Gunn's Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent Make Drag Race Worth Watching

On Friday’s season premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars , the bewiggèd host told the contestants that if they could “harness the power” of their “charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent,” they’d “rule the Drag Race hall of fame.” I’m pleased to report that Gia Gunn disregarded RuPaul’s advice entirely, unleashing her cunt on every queen in the workroom.

Upon noticing that she and Monique...

They Look Great

VH1 just released the first 14 minutes of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season four, premiering this Friday, and I’m pleased to report that the budget is there.

Not the show’s budget—god, no. They’re still filming in that ceilingless workroom with the finest “brick” walls Jo-Ann Fabrics could furnish. I’m talking about the queens. They look great! Check out all their entrance looks below, plus...

Netflix released a teaser trailer for Season 3 of Stranger Things on Sunday, The Los Angeles Times reports, revealing the names of the episodes but like, not much else.

I haven’t watched all of Stranger Things, but I have watched some of Stranger Things. (I definitely saw all of the first season and one or two episodes of Season 2.) Here’s what I think is going to happen, based on that...

Eggs Are Not Feminist, But Dairy Is (With Conditions)

Which foods are feminist, and which ones are not? Should I give my spaghetti to Gloria Steinem? Should she give me hers? Should no one spaghett? Can I only eat a broccoli if it looks like a Venus? If I spill out my Haribo alphabet gummies and they don’t spell “COMBAHEE RIVER COLLECTIVE IS GOOD” on the first try do I go to my room? Do I eat my shame? There is nothing more feminist than telling...
