See You in Hell, Jughead

See You in Hell, Jughead

The hit teen noir Riverdale returns for its fourth season on the CW October 9, and, judging by the trailer, it’s going to be a doozy. Jughead’s dead! Kidding. But maybe not...

Jughead almost died at the end of Season 2 (and arguably many times afterward), and much of the trailer is spent teasing an impending disaster, which could be his death. It’s finally senior year for Jughead, Betty,...

Now They're Licking Each Other's Tonsils to Prove They Don't 'Kiss Like Fish'

Now They're Licking Each Other's Tonsils to Prove They Don't 'Kiss Like Fish'

It’s rare that I will battle a bout of insomnia, but last night was brutal. Around 4 a.m., after a few hours of tossing and turning, I decided to scroll aimlessly through Twitter—surely the monotony of the same Caroline Calloway joke told over and over again would put me right to sleep. Instead, I saw it: a 30-second video clip of Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello “kissing.” The great fake...

How Many More Bachelorette Losers Will Shoot Their Shot With Celebrities?

How Many More Bachelorette Losers Will Shoot Their Shot With Celebrities?

If you think your dating life is challenging, try being hot, talented, rich, and famous! It’s so rough out there, apparently, celebrities are looking toward the Bachelor franchise for partners. Specifically, Gigi Hadid , Sarah Hyland, and Scheana Marie are all reportedly dating men from past Bachelorette seasons—and not the winners, because those men are meant to get engaged only to see their...

MTV's Ghosted: Love Gone Missing Is a Perfectly Temporary Fix

MTV's Ghosted: Love Gone Missing Is a Perfectly Temporary Fix

On paper, MTV’s latest pseudo-investigative television program about human interactions, Ghosted: Love Gone Missing, is basically a mundane version of Catfish . In reality, it’s not just a copy. The two-episode premiere on Tuesday wasn’t as eventful as the show made famous by Nev Schulman and Max Joseph (which became a national pastime), but it is similarly captivating.

The format is the...

All I Got From New York Fashion Week Was a Funny Story About Kelly Cutrone

All I Got From New York Fashion Week Was a Funny Story About Kelly Cutrone

I moved to New York City 10 years ago. That means mostly nothing, but also two things: 1.) I have attended many D-list New York Fashion Week parties and have deejayed a few of them over the years 2.) I always enter and leave them feeling the same way—bad about my appearance and bank account, but also, somehow, morally superior. I’ve held the belief that music and writing are objectively...

So Long, Blake, and See You at Stagecoach

So Long, Blake, and See You at Stagecoach

The joy of Bachelor in Paradise is its ridiculous premise: take a bunch of hot losers from past Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons, throw them in a few sexy situations, and watch the poorly adjusted ones show a bit more of their true colors than they would on the other programs. It’s hot out there in Sayulita, Mexico, and afternoon tequila makes it easy to forget there are cameras around. The...

Crazy Rich Asians Director Jon M. Chu Explains How Salary Negotiations With Adele Lim Fell Apart

Crazy Rich Asians Director Jon M. Chu Explains How Salary Negotiations With Adele Lim Fell Apart

Crazy Rich Asians co-screenwriter Adele Lim left the blockbuster’s forthcoming sequel after discovering she was making nearly eight to 10 times less than her fellow co-writer, Peter Chiarelli. To make matters worse, she was brought onto the project by director Jon M. Chu only after Chiarelli was hired to adapt Kevin Kwan’s 2013 novel Crazy Rich Asians—and when she left, the studio spent...

The Kelly Clarkson Show Is Karaoke and Boss Bitch Feminism, Y'all

The Kelly Clarkson Show Is Karaoke and Boss Bitch Feminism, Y'all

Kelly Clarkson has a daytime talk show now, which makes sense, because her personality exists somewhere between a parody of the nicest Southern neighbor you ever did have and an issue of Town & Country come to life. Before viewing, the very concept of The Kelly Clarkson Show confounded me because the Rachel Ray Show already exists , and I often confuse the two for one another in photographs....

The Secret to a Long, Happy, and Healthy Life Is Cheerleading

The Secret to a Long, Happy, and Healthy Life Is Cheerleading

It’s Monday, the weekly nightmare of every working person with a 9 to 5 gig and also Garfield . There’s little to smile about today. Hell, there’s little to feel good about the world in general. There is, however, this story: According to the BBC, a group of South Korean women over the age of 70 have found happiness in “cheerobics,” a combination of cheerleading and aerobics. They are...

Everyone Already Hates The Goldfinch

Everyone Already Hates The Goldfinch

The Goldfinch, the movie adaptation of Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend to a warm round of boos from film critics. The cast—Nicole Kidman, Jeffrey Wright, Ansel Elgort in glasses , and one of the Stranger Things’ boys —apparently wasn’t enough to save the film from being “lifeless” and maybe even the worst...

The Grossest Place You've Had Sex

The Grossest Place You've Had Sex

The cool months approach, which means all you outside-sex-havers are going to have to move your proclivities to the bedroom or shower like the rest of us. However, I’m sure there are tons of dive-bar bathrooms you could bone in for the same kind of excitement—not speaking from experience or anything. In honor of the end of summer, I’m dying to know: Where’s the grossest place you’ve ever had...

Where Has This Camila Cabello Been Hiding?

Where Has This Camila Cabello Been Hiding?
Y/NY/N is a guide to the week’s music releases based on our highly scientific, non-subjective Yes/No rating system.  

Another hell yes from me: Camila Cabello, “Shameless” - Where has this Camila Cabello been hiding? She’s arty and anthemic and certainly leaning into so infrequently treaded red-light radio rock territory. I’d say between this, Halsey’s “Nightmare,”  5 Seconds of...

Where Were You When You First Saw Halsey Singing Blink-182 At The Mall?

Where Were You When You First Saw Halsey Singing Blink-182 At The Mall?

Long before Halsey (born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane) was the super star that she is, she was covering Blink-182's “I Miss You” and various other pop-punk and/or emo tracks in a mall for adoring fans. I assume the mall in question was in New Jersey, where she is from, but who knows, really. I do know that all of us have seen the clip before, so I pose the question to you: Where were you...

Harry Styles Doesn’t Know He’s Beautiful (That’s What Makes Him Beautiful)

Harry Styles Doesn’t Know He’s Beautiful (That’s What Makes Him Beautiful)

Objectively speaking, Harry Styles is an attractive man . He might not see it that way, and while it breaks my heart, it is also endearing and I adore him and if this comes off as slightly unhinged, it is absolutely because it is, and I am.

Here’s why: Styles is the latest cover star for The Face. The photos are great. The story is not, but there is one moment I’d like to highlight. The...

And Now, 10 Years of Brad Pitt’s Newsboy Cap

And Now, 10 Years of Brad Pitt’s Newsboy Cap

Hey there, I’ve got a quick question: When did Brad Pitt start wearing a newsboy cap?

In the last, I don’t know, year or so, every photo of Pitt has included his signature flap cap headwear. (I could be wrong, but then again, you think about what Brad Pitt looks like. He’s wearing a hat in your imagination, right? Touché, motherfucker.) On Wednesday afternoon, when I stumbled upon a profile...

Jeremy Renner Cancels 'Jeremy Renner'

Jeremy Renner Cancels 'Jeremy Renner'

Jeremy Renner, also known as the guy I could not identify in Avengers: End Game , has deactivated his app, famously titled “Jeremy Renner.” Why do the good die so young?

Renner announced the news on Wednesday, September 4, in a font I can’t quite place but might actually be Papyrus. He opened with, “The App has jumped the shark. Literally,” a hilarious but clearly non-literal image. His...

Camila Cabello on Her Boyfriend: 'I Love Working With Him So Much'

Camila Cabello on Her Boyfriend: 'I Love Working With Him So Much'

Camila Cabello is one of the many artists featured on the cover on Elle’s “Women in Music” October Issue but she’s probably the only one to discuss a fake celebrity relationship within its pages. I feel empowered already.

I thought the “women in ____” construction was passé, and then I read a bunch of quotes about Cabello adoring Shawn Mendes for qualities that exist beyond his silky voice ...

Crazy Rich Asians Co-Writer Left Sequel After Learning White Male Colleague Earned Around 10 Times Her Salary

Crazy Rich Asians Co-Writer Left Sequel After Learning White Male Colleague Earned Around 10 Times Her Salary

Despite some incremental and largely cosmetic victories, Hollywood is a hostile place for women, particularly women of color. Here’s one recent example: According to the Hollywood Reporter, Crazy Rich Asians co-screenwriter Adele Lim left the forthcoming sequel when she found she was making nearly eight to 10 times less than her fellow co-writer, Peter Chiarelli, a white man.

Chiarelli was...

I Cannot Look Away From This Intense New YouTube 'Couple'

I Cannot Look Away From This Intense New YouTube 'Couple'

I love a fake relationship set up for promotional purposes as much as the next cynic, but I worship the conscious coupling of Aaron Carter and YouTuber Trisha Paytas. I can’t think of a more intense pairing of pseudo-celebrities, and I cannot wait to see how this implodes. Think of all of the vlogs, people!

Allow me to walk through the stages of Trishron, as they should henceforth be known....

Manny MUA and Other YouTubers Are Calling to Cancel 'Cancel Culture'

Manny MUA and Other YouTubers Are Calling to Cancel 'Cancel Culture'

On Sunday, beauty YouTuber Manny MUA (real name Manny Gutierrez) posted a 35-minute long vlog about being “Cancelled.” The video referenced the Beauty YouTuber drama of August 2018 , when he posed for a photograph with fellow influencers Nikita Dragun, Laura Lee, and Gabriel Zamora. The image and its caption, “Bitch is bitter because without him we’re doing better,” posted by Zamora, was...
