What Do Cooking Shows Need? More Food Shot Out of a Cannon, and Tituss Burgess

What Do Cooking Shows Need? More Food Shot Out of a Cannon, and Tituss Burgess

When I watch a cooking show , I want chaos. Whether it’s the restaurant wars episodes of Top Chef, the baking failures of Nailed It , or the bizarre ingredient surprises on Chopped, I want to see people running around a cooking competition like chickens with their heads cut off. The producers of the latter have come up with an even crazier cooking show premise, one which involves shooting...

It's Normani's World Now And We're Just Living In It

It's Normani's World Now And We're Just Living In It

When girl group Fifth Harmony imploded, it was clear that Camila Cabello had come out on top as a bonafide solo artist with her hit “Havana.” But fans knew the group had another star in the making: Normani.

For the past two years Normani has released a few songs featuring other artists (like “Love Lies” with Khalid, or appearing on Sam Smith’s “Dancing With a Stranger”) but nothing she could...

This Week's 'Shut Up Tarantino' Is Brought to You By Bruce Lee's Daughter

This Week's 'Shut Up Tarantino' Is Brought to You By Bruce Lee's Daughter

I thought Once Upon a Time In Hollywood was a generally good movie, as long as I focused exclusively on the scenes in which hottie Brad Pitt is basically in a buddy comedy with his pitbull Brandy, who steals the entire movie (Margot Robbie, who?!) But not everyone shares my feelings, including Bruce Lee’s daughter, who would kindly like Tarantino to shut up about her dad.

In the movie,...

Battle Hymn of the #Boymom

Battle Hymn of the #Boymom

There are over 8,400,00 posts on Instagram tagged with the hashtag #boymom. It sits under baby bump photos (“we’re one month away from little dude’s due date!”), banal portraits of chubby-cheeked babies (“my baby boy teaches me something every day”), and photos of little boys doing stereotypically #boy things like rock climbing or cruising in toy cars. In one post, a toddler boy lays on the...

The Hot New Scammer Is This Serial Wedding Crasher

The Hot New Scammer Is This Serial Wedding Crasher

Weddings, why do people have them ? They’re typically very expensive and, not to get all Carrie Bradshaw about it, one shouldn’t have to get married to get their general personhood or longterm relationship validated with a shower of gifts and money from loved ones. Or, in the case of one serial scammer, just steal the shower of gifts and money right out from the noses of the newly married...

These Gay Penguins Should Sue If Their Adoption Doesn't Work Out

These Gay Penguins Should Sue If Their Adoption Doesn't Work Out

Who couldn’t love Skip and Ping, the famous gay penguin couple at the Zoo Berlin? The New York Times reports that as soon as the couple, just one example of how same-sex couples appear in penguin communities, came to the zoo, they were looking to start a family.

They nurtured a rock and a fish, but it wasn’t the same. After a female penguin at the zoo named The Orange hatched an egg, the zoo...

Tiffany Haddish Has Invented The Best Weird Drink Order

Tiffany Haddish Has Invented The Best Weird Drink Order

All celebs should be so lucky as to go out with Tiffany Haddish, because weird things happen. Maybe she hits on Leonardo DiCaprio, maybe Beyoncé gets bitten in the face. Or, Haddish might order the strangest cocktail you’ve ever seen.

Melissa McCarthy told People that one time when she went out to dinner with Haddish, she ordered a drink and then “a big tumbler filled with every fruit...

Confident Rando Threatens to Sue Lady Gaga For Allegedly Stealing 'Shallow'

Confident Rando Threatens to Sue Lady Gaga For Allegedly Stealing 'Shallow'

A singer-songwriter named Steve Ronsen is claiming Lady Gaga ripped off one of his songs to write “Shallow” and is reportedly threatening to sue her.

Page Six reports that as of yesterday the song, titled “Almost,” had fewer than 300 plays on SoundCloud (now, that number is up to 27,000, so if he was looking for attention, he certainly got it.) Ronsen claims that “Shallow” steals the chord...

Rachel Monroe's Savage Appetites Examines the Complicated Reasons Women Love True Crime

Rachel Monroe's Savage Appetites Examines the Complicated Reasons Women Love True Crime

In Rachel Monroe’s book Savage Appetites, she describes something called a “crime funk.” It is when you might find yourself binge-watching Law & Order: SVU episodes back to back or when you’ve decided to read every Manson girl memoir after quickly gulping down Helter Skelter.

Like Monroe, I’ve often found myself in one crime funk after another, clicking through grotesque Wikipedia pages on...

Taylor Swift Explains Her Recent LGBTQ Advocacy to Vogue

Taylor Swift Explains Her Recent LGBTQ Advocacy to Vogue

Taylor Swift, designated gay icon by the Kaylor community and herself, can explain the whole rainbow, glitter-dusted, LGBTQ celebration that her new album Lover has brought us. Because while it seems like it’s done in good faith, it also feels like it came out of nowhere.

In a Vogue cover story by writer Abby Aguirre—who seems to think gay advocacy has been an explicit theme in Swift’s...

Every Awards Show Should Be Hosted Like Love Island

Every Awards Show Should Be Hosted Like Love Island

Hollywood is in a weird place right now when it comes to awards show hosting. After Kevin Hart stepped down from his Oscars hosting gig last year following an outcry over homophobic tweets, nobody really seemed down (or had material clean enough to do it.) And so the show went on without a host and it was fine! Now this year’s Emmy Awards will also ditch the host, Deadline reports. Amy...

After a Rocky Time Under Walmart, Modcloth Is Reportedly For Sale

After a Rocky Time Under Walmart, Modcloth Is Reportedly For Sale

When ModCloth started, it was a quirky independent company that actually made cute plus-sized clothes, earning a dedicated customer base. But as Anna Merlan reported in 2017 , the company went through a series of significant changes that altered the company’s self-described feminist ethos, the biggest being its acquisition by Jet.com, owned by Walmart. Now Walmart is reportedly selling the...

Beyoncé Is Now In the Smithsonian

Forget the Louvre , Beyoncé has found a new museum to call home, and she’s literally a work of art in it.

CNN reports that a photo from Beyoncé’s 2018 Vogue shoot (which appeared in the magazine with an interview conducted by Jezebel’s own Clover Hope) has been added to the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery’s permanent collection. Photographer Tyler Mitchell shot the photo and at 23...

Victoria's Secret Executive Who Gave Disastrous Interview Finally Leaves the Company

Victoria's Secret Executive Who Gave Disastrous Interview Finally Leaves the Company

Back in November, I wrote that if Victoria’s Secret really wanted a new generation of customers, those who are disinterested in their bodies being curated by old men, “they should consider booting Razek.” Well, as of today, Razek has quit the company.

The New York Times reports that Razek’s departure was confirmed in a memo sent to employees. The news follows a controversial interview Razek,...

Spinderella's Lawsuit Against Salt-N-Pepa Gets Messier

Despite the duo’s name, DJ Spinderella has been an important member of Salt-N-Pepa for over three decades now. But the three are now embroiled in a sticky lawsuit filed by Spinderella (Deidra Roper) over unpaid royalties and a fraud.

In May, Roper said she was fired from the group in January via email, right before the group was supposed to go on tour with New Kids On the Block. In July, TMZ

Transphobic Company Victoria's Secret Suddenly Hires Openly Trans Model

Transphobic Company Victoria's Secret Suddenly Hires Openly Trans Model

Last year Victoria’s Secret basically confirmed out loud what the company has implicitly advertised for years: that they don’t want to diversify their runway shows and catalogues with “real women,” including plus-size models or trans women, no matter how mad people get. “It’s like, why doesn’t your show do this? Shouldn’t you have transsexuals in the show?,” chief marketing officer of L...

Tyra Banks has one photo in her hands, and this represents who will be the next America’s Next Top Graphic Novel Character.

After announcing the forthcoming launch of her mysterious Modelland, a sort of amusement park “where the modeling world meets fantasy, meets entertainment, meets technology, meets retail, meets dining,” she has moved on to another venture: a graphic novel. People

Antoni Thinks He Can Say 'Olive Oil Drizzle' and That Makes Him a Food Expert

Antoni Thinks He Can Say 'Olive Oil Drizzle' and That Makes Him a Food Expert

The Jezebel staff has a lot of opinions about Antoni Porowski, Queer Eye’s resident cooking “expert.” We’ve written about his under-salted, sad restaurant food, the problems with how he approaches teaching men to cook on the show, and speculated about if he can really cook at all. And by we I mean mostly me, since I wrote all these posts.

He’s simply too easy to dunk on! Case in point: this...

Lupita Nyong'o Is a Ukulele-Strumming, Zombie-Punching Teacher in Little Monsters

If you were disappointed that Lupita Nyong’o was not cast in the new Charlie’s Angels movie, don’t be. One, the movie looks bad . Two, she’s in a new movie fighting a much cooler battle: zombies!

Don’t let the ukulele fool you: in Little Monsters, she plays the sweet kindergarten teacher Miss. Caroline, who must keep her cool when a school field trip is sidetracked by a zombie invasion. And...

A Rich White Girl's Application Said She Was a Black 'Tennis Whiz' In College Admissions Scandal

I wish I could transmit news from the college admissions scandal straight into my veins via IV drip, but for now I’ll have to settle for reading it as it comes in. This beautiful trainwreck has now brought us a Lifetime movie adaptation , a TV series on the fraud, and the delightful contents of Olivia Jade’s Youtube feed , and now this lengthy Vanity Fair article outlining how this all...
