New Zombies! New Characters! New Cookies?
We are still 2 months away from the premiere of The Walking Dead season 6 on AMC but the time has come for the show’s promo to begin in earnest. The Walking Dead season 6 is featured on the cover and in the pages of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine and as you can see in the photo gallery presented here, the new season will feature our fave TWD characters alongside new characters to the show … and a bunch of new zombies. The cover story feature in this week’s issue of EW gives us a nice preview of the new season, which you can read excerpted below. But I am so here for the photos. There’s something magical about the sight of Andrew Lincoln‘s Rick and Norman Reedus‘s Daryl patting one another on the ass while Melissa McBride‘s Carol looks on. Amazing. Check out the photos, then click below to preview this new TWD feature in the new issue of EW magazine. More »

"The pioneers ... made it easier for me"
On June 1, Caitlyn Jenner made her worldwide debut on the cover of that month’s issue of Vanity Fair magazine. But, the road to the cover of Vanity Fair was a long one, chronicled by a short film documentary titled Call Me Caitlyn. The embed above features the full 10-minute documentary, filmed and released by VF magazine, and shows us behind the scenes footage from the shoot along with interviews with members of the Vanity Fair staff and, of course, Caitlyn Jenner herself. Caitlyn offers some really great insight in this short documentary film, particularly her acknowledgement of the trans pioneers who came before her. Check out the video above, I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.
Batman v. Superman v. Lex Luthor
It’s only been a little over 2 weeks since we got to see the amazing new trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, which was released at San Diego Comic-Con, and I’m still not over it.

"It's crazy how we were getting criticized for this years ago"
Back in April we got to see the second trailer for Straight Outta Compton, the upcoming biopic film that tells the life story of the famed rap group N.W.A. Today, with the film’s release date drawing ever closer, we get to check out a new interview with N.W.A. members Dr. Dre and Ice Cube as they chat with The Hollywood Reporter magazine about their biopic film and how the themes they wrestled with back in the day are themes we are all still wrestling with today. The group members have got a lot of things planned surrounding the release of the movie, including a reunion performance and tour that will include Eminem), so they have a lot to talk about these days. Click below to read excerpts from their Hollywood Reporter interview and get ready for the return of N.W.A. More »
"I felt ashamed. I was embarrassed to be me."
There are many reasons people blame the media for some of the biggest problems impacting the world, but I think the main reason is that the media—all media, really—wields power. Something as simple as an image on the cover of a magazine can speak volumes and can send a strong message about how we should all be feeling. In this way, the media controls a huge aspect of our society’s moral compass. So, putting 35 women on the cover of a magazine—women who were all questioned and called liars at one point—sitting them down in chairs facing the world, and leaving a single empty chair sends a powerful message about the face of rape culture, and gives agencies to those most effected (and to those who still haven’t spoken out, or those victims who are surely still to come).

Long Live the King
Earlier today we got to see actor Charlie Hunnam in character as King Arthur on the cover of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine, lookin’ as hot as ever. Right now, we get to feast our eyes on the full photospread of Charlie in the new issue of EW. Photographed by Marc Hom on the set of Hunnam‘s new film Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, we get to see just how insanely handsome Charlie looks as the legendary monarch. It’s hard to pick a fave photo from this batch but it’s sure fun trying. Enjoy.
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.

"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 »

Plus, his chat with Martha Stewart (Yes, Martha Stewart)
Justin Bieber is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Interview magazine and as you can see in the gallery presented here, he isn’t wearing very much clothing. As you may recall, The Biebs showed us his bare ass on Instagram last week so clearly he is in a very show-and-tell mood these days. The photos were shot by Steven Klein and the interview was conducted by Martha Stewart. Yes, the felonious queen of the domestic arts. Martha and JB clearly grew close when they worked together on the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber earlier this year so, yeah, there you go. Check out the photos and then click below to read excerpts from JB‘s chat with MS in the new issue of Interview mag. More »
