It's Been 10 Years Since Kanye West Barely Let Taylor Swift Finish. Now, Producers Are Spilling Behind-the-Scenes Tea

The day was September 13, 2009. Heaps of celebrities gathered at Radio City Music Hall in New York City to honor each other with shiny moon men at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs). The “Best Female Video” award was up and Taylor Swift’s name was announced for her “You Belong With Me” video. However, Kanye West  wasn’t feelin’ that decision; he actually preferred Beyoncé’s pop...

If You’re Looking for Some Simple Entertainment, Reading Cardi B’s Deposition Will Please You

Cardi B doesn’t need to take a BuzzFeed quiz to realize that if she were a Powerpuff Girl, she’d be Buttercup. (By the way, I searched to see if there’s an actual “Which Powerpuff Girl Are You?” BuzzFeed quiz, and you’re damn Skippy peanut butter it is.)

Beep Beep! Who Got the Keys to the Jeep in NYC? Because There’s a Museum of Missy Elliott

Hit ’em with the hee! Melissa Arnette “Missy” Elliott has a whole museum, y’all!

On Wednesday morning, I was scrolling my Twitter timeline minding everyone else’s business when I saw the following tweet:

I went through an array of emotions:

1. Fucking hell, I wish I was in NYC this weekend. I only express this sentiment about a couple times out of the year, by the way.

I Saw Janet Jackson Live for the First Time in My Life and Experienced My Own Metamorphosis
