Taylor Swift Has Already Toppled A Star Is Born

Taylor Swift Has Already Toppled A Star Is Born

Taylor Swift’s album Lover only just dropped on Friday, but it’s already overtaken the A Star Is Born soundtrack as the top-selling album in 2019. I imagine I am partially to thank for this, having texted at least 30 people this weekend to alert them that “Cruel Summer” is “a real bop,” so, yeah, you’re welcome, Taylor.

According to Billboard, Lover sold 500,000 copies by Saturday, surpassing...

Disney's New Streaming Service Won't Fuck

Disney's New Streaming Service Won't Fuck

Disney+, Disney’s upcoming streaming service, will have almost everything: all of its animated movies, 10,000 Star Wars spinoff shows, most of the Marvel Universe (minus Spider-Man), possibly The Simpsons, and a Muppets short-form series. What it will not have: sex, big swears, my money.

Entertainment writer Eric Vespe attended Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, California this weekend and asked...

Harvey Weinstein Wants to Move His Trial Out of Manhattan

Harvey Weinstein Wants to Move His Trial Out of Manhattan

Harvey Weinstein is set to (finally ) stand trial for rape and sexual assault charges in Manhattan next month, but his attorneys are still trying to net him some sort of Hail Mary pass. Their current maneuver: arguing the trial should be moved out of New York, citing juror bias.

Deadline reports:

“It is safe to say that New York City is the least likely place on earth where Mr. Weinstein could...

New Accusers Say Epstein Abused Them With Sex Toys, Raped Teen After She Told Him She Was a Virgin

New Accusers Say Epstein Abused Them With Sex Toys, Raped Teen After She Told Him She Was a Virgin

Three new accusers have come forward in the wake of Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide to allege the convicted pedophile sexually abused and raped them. Among the deeply disturbing accusations: Epstein abused them with sex toys, forced one woman to marry a “recruiter” so she could stay in the country, and raped one 17-year-old even after she told him she didn’t want to lose her virginity. The three...

Will Someone Please Buy Me This $850K Private Island in New York?

Will Someone Please Buy Me This $850K Private Island in New York?

I live just a short subway ride from the island of Manhattan, where the median apartment listing price is $999,000, and in the borough of Brooklyn, which is attached to Long Island, in a tiny apartment with two roommates and a shared annual rent of about $41,000. I would much rather live in the woods with a gang of fuzzy animals and no humans, but I will settle for this $850,000 private...

Ladies, Larry King Is Single Again

Ladies, Larry King Is Single Again

Larry King is back on the market.

Page Six reports that King has filed for divorce from Shawn King, his wife of 22 years who is not this Shaun King, which confused me for a second. The couple have reportedly been separated since June, and King cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.

Shawn King is King’s seventh wife, and though their union stuck for the longest,...

At Least California Is Holding Up at the Moment

At Least California Is Holding Up at the Moment

Much of the world is both literally and figuratively aflame, but things are thus far looking up for California, which suffered devastating wildfire destruction in the last few years. This year, though, wildfire acreage is down significantly, and experts are hopeful this summer’s colder and wetter conditions will limit destruction when wildfire season is in full swing in the fall.

According to...

Donald Trump Would Absolutely Do This to Greenland

Donald Trump Would Absolutely Do This to Greenland

Donald Trump would like to buy Greenland, and despite Greenland’s assurance that it is absolutely not for sale, it seems he is not quite ready to drop the dream. And if he did manage to purchase the 57,000-population island—which, again, to be clear, is not for sale—he absolutely would NOT stick a hideous piece of Trump-branded real estate in the middle of it. Don’t be ridiculous!

Trump...

Tucker Carlson Returns From His Racism Vacation With Far Fewer Advertisers

Tucker Carlson Returns From His Racism Vacation With Far Fewer Advertisers

Earlier this month, Tucker Carlson claimed on air that the dangers of white supremacy are a “hoax,” a move that prompted quite a few of his advertisers to flee and coincidentally coincided with him taking a quick trip “to the wilderness”. On Monday night, he returned from his racism vacation, but unfortunately for him, it doesn’t seem like his erstwhile advertisers will be back.

Jill Biden Would Like You to Vote for Joe Biden, Even If You'd Rather Not

Jill Biden, Joe Biden’s wife, would like you to vote for Joe Biden, no matter how many of his gaffes or closet skeletons or pointless healthcare plans might make you reconsider. Joe Biden—he may not have earned your enthusiasm, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to begrudgingly settle for him. Take it from Jill!

According to Meet the Press, Jill Biden tried to plug Biden to Democratic...

Everyone From Boy Meets World Is an Adult Now

Everyone From Boy Meets World Is an Adult Now

I am turning 30 in less than a month, and so I now spend all my waking hours re-litigating my childhood and thinking about little I have accomplished now that death looms near(er). And so, it was slightly horrifying to see a photo of the Boy Meets World cast in Ye Lorde’s Year of 2019. Everyone looks just fine, of course, but now they are all grown-ups instead of precocious children and thus...

Alligator Life Imitates Alligator Art in Florida

It seems the alligators in Florida who are not living inside various yoga pants  have become aware of the inexplicable success of the killer alligator movie Crawl, as several of them appear to be angling for roles in the sequel.

West Palm Beach NBC affiliate WPTV reports that two alligators, one in St. Petersburg and one in Jacksonville, were spotted this week doing some unusually daring...

Kaitlynn Carter Has Already Met Miley's Mom

Kaitlynn Carter Has Already Met Miley's Mom

I am trying to be the sort of person who doesn’t gossip about her own friends’ relationships—a difficult task for me, coming from long line of yentas—so instead I will focus my energy on Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, two people who are probably used to the attention. Today’s important piece of news: Kaitlynn Carter has met Miley’s mom. Folks, it’s serious (maybe) (who knows).

I Regret to Report That Harry Styles Won't Be Our Prince Eric, After All

I’m very sorry to report to you and to Maria Sherman that Harry Styles has robbed us of the opportunity to watch Halle Bailey pull his dripping wet body out of the ocean.

The Wrap reports that Styles has turned down the role of Prince Eric in the upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, despite some earlier rumors that he’d officially been added to the cast.

Bailey, known best as...

New York Times Demotes Bad Tweet Machine Jonathan Weisman

New York Times Demotes Bad Tweet Machine Jonathan Weisman

The New York Times has demoted Jonathan Weisman, formerly a deputy Washington editor, after he made not one but several weird and racist tweets, then proceeded to harass writer Roxane Gay via email after she called him out. Weisman is also no longer allowed to tweet, which is assuredly for the best.

The Times reports that Weisman will no longer oversee the paper’s correspondents in Congress,...

Britney Spears Goes to Target All the Time Like a Normal Person

Britney Spears Goes to Target All the Time Like a Normal Person

Britney Spears has had her share of challenges of late, but it seems lack of home goods was not one of them, as she apparently shopped at Target 80 times in 2018. I go to Duane Reade 80 times a week and my local bodega 80 times a day, so I’m not sure this is really anything, but here we are.

E! News got ahold of some financial documents from Spears’s ongoing conservatorship case, only to...

Miley and Liam Seem Exhausting, Honestly

Miley and Liam Seem Exhausting, Honestly

We’ve all known that couple or been that couple that keeps breaking up, then parade around their problems and very public hookups and sweep all their friends up in their drama before they inevitably get back together and make everyone come over for brunch. I can’t help but shake the feeling that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are one such couple, and it seems like their “friends,” or at least...

Here We Present Chris Cuomo at His Most Wild and Relatable

Here We Present Chris Cuomo at His Most Wild and Relatable

Up until now, CNN’s Chris Cuomo was best known for both his unyielding dedication to Both Sides-ism and for his terrible brother. But that was then and this is now—now being a world in which there exists video of Cuomo angrily confronting a troll—and henceforth he shall only be known as Not Fredo.

The New York Post reports that Cuomo was on Shelter Island in New York on Sunday when a dude...
