Sons of Monarchy
Back in April, we got to see Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam in costume on the set of his upcoming film Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur. Today we get to see Charlie on the cover of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine, as a more modern day-looking King Arthur. Well, kinda … actually, it’s a great photo of Charlie holding the Excaliber sword and, well, I guess that’s King Arthur enough for this magazine cover photo. Click below to see the photo in full and read excerpts from his cover story feature in EW mag this week. More »
"I’m not confused ... I think the world might be - but I’m not.”
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Rachel Dolezal — the Caucasian woman who brazenly identifies as Black. OK, it’s been about a month since we’ve heard from her but, honestly, in the past 4 weeks I don’t think I’ve given her even a passing thought. But, here we are, talking about her again … because she is featured in the new issue of Vanity Fair magazine. In spite of the backlash that she received when her true ethnicity was revealed, Dolezal tells VF mag that she feels that she never deceived anyone, she absolutely identifies as Black and she is completely unapologetic about everything that went down when her story blew up in May. Rachel Dolezal ain’t done talking, click below to read what she has to say now. More »
You're gonna wanna see this
Many of us still haven’t processed the fact that, in a couple of weeks, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart will be no more. I haven’t watched the show regularly in a long time, but I’m going to make it a point to try and catch these final episodes, because I’m expecting some pretty great things. Stewart has been an incredible, influential and hilarious voice over many many years and I’m sure he’s going out with a bang. On Tuesday, he’s got a very special guest and I cannot wait to see how these two chop it up. Click inside for more!
"Of course Bill Cosby is guilty"
While other former castmembers of The Cosby Show have either spoken out in defense of Bill Cosby or have refrained completely from commenting on the rape allegations, actor Joseph C. Phillips (Martin Kendall on The Cosby Show) has come forward with his fervent belief that Cosby is guilty of the crimes against women that have been alleged over the years. In a sit down interview with CNN, Phillips reveals above what finally caused him to believe the allegations against Cosby and on his official website, he plainly and clearly explains why he believes “of course Bill Cosby is guilty” of raping numerous women over the years. The video above is a short watch, the treatise below is a longer read. It’s all sordid and gross but, sadly, I believe — now, more than ever — that Bill Cosby is guilty of the numerous assault claims leveled against him. More »
"Ciara was on tour, and I was looking at her in the mirror, and God spoke to me"
UM EXCUSE ME WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU’RE NOT HAVING SEX WITH CIARA? First of all, Russell Wilson will always get all the props in the world because HE’S NOT FUTURE. Okay? Yes. Thank you Russell, thank you for not being Future. But I have to admit that I busted out laughing when I saw that he gave an interview and publicly declared that he’s not having sex with his new girlfriend… and that it’s because he received a direct message from God about leading Ciara down a different path. Now, it’s not that I don’t believe God sometimes sends direct messages to believers… it’s just that, well, it’s kinda funny to think about God being all like, “Nah dude. Don’t even hit that yet.” Click inside for more!

It ain't easy bein' Nori
This weekend I’ve been hanging out with some old friends and Boston and my super-awesome sister who is also maybe insane offered to watch ALL THREE of my babies so I could get just a little crunk (the kids still say “crunk,” right?). This morning I was missing my babes just a teeeeny bit, which is partly why I was thrilled to see Amber Rose’s Baby Bash back on Instagram. And I had to check in on little North West, who is gearing up to enter big sisterhood—and she is having a few struggles. Click inside for more!

"Oh God, no!"
In the wake of seemingly unending news regarding remakes of movies like Ghostbusters, The Crow, Sister Act, Point Break, Kindergarten Cop, The Birds (UGH!) and on and on and on comes AMAZING news about a possible remake of Back to the Future — THAT THERE WILL NEVER BE ONE! Producer Robert Zemeckis was recently asked about the possibility of a Back to the Future remake anytime in the future and his immediate answer was Oh God, no. According to Zemeckis, there can never be a BTTF remake without his and colleague Bob Gale‘s approval … which they promise they will never give as long as they live. Then, after they die, he hopes their estastes will fend off any remake plans for as long as possible. Soooo, yeah, Robert Zemeckis is my new hero. More »
"There is no Top Gun without Maverick"
Way back in 2010, we first learned that plans were in the works for a sequel film to the 1986 film Top Gun. In December of 2011, Top Gun star Tom Cruise voiced not only his support for a sequel to Top Gun but his interest in reprising his role as Lieutenant Pete Maverick Mitchell. In April of 2012, Paramount Studios confirmed that Top Gun 2 was coming … but then, nothing. In the wake of director Tony Scott‘s suicide in August of that year, all talk of Top Gun 2 went away and it was believed that the sequel would never get made … until now. David Ellison (CEO of Skydance Productions) is talking about the Top Gun sequel again, announcing that the film has a new screenwriter … and revealing that “an amazing role” is being written for Cruise‘s Maverick character because, as Ellison makes clear, “there is no Top Gun without Maverick“.

IT'S TOO MUCH!
Earlier this year I realized that Instagram was not as fun for me as it used to be. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, and then I realized that it was because of the models. I was following way too many models, and it was making me sad. Because dammit, if I post a selfie I want to enjoy that selfie and the likes it garners. I don’t want to post it, and then scroll down and see the likes of Selita Ebanks on my timeline. She is, officially, too horrifyingly stunning for me to bear witness to anymore and so I’m unfollowing her right now. In a minute. I’m done with her. So, peep the gallery for more unless you want to walk away still being okay with Selita Ebanks‘ existence.
P.S. Unfortch, I am no following Ashi Studio, the folks who made that gorgeous gown.

"I don't want to go far into it because it will bring me to tears."
Kanye West, looking about as miserable as he has ever looked in his life, is featured on the cover of the new issue of Q magazine. In his cover story interview, the subject of Kanye‘s mother — Donda Williams West — came up after he was asked about the thing that he sacrificed in his life to achieve his massive success. West‘s response, simply, was that his mother was the thing that he sacrificed for fame. All artists have to make sacrifices at some point in their careers in order for them to achieve their goals. In Kanye‘s case, he believes that his push for fame resulted in his mother’s death … which he blames himself for.
