YES! YES! SO MUCH YES!
Back in July we got our first look at actor Andrew Rennells in character as Hedwig as he will appear later this month as the lead in the Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, the role he is taking over from Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris. Today we learn the EFFING EXCITING NEWS that Dexter star Michael C. Hall will step into the role of Hedwig after Andrew finishes his extremely limited run next month. MCH will star in Hedwig and the Angry Inch starting October 16 … which means I will get the chance to see him in the show when I visit NYC at the beginning of November! Woot!!! More »
A whole universe of WTF
*Deep breath* Okay. I almost want to take back every single thing I wrote in that piece that was sort of in defense of Stephen A. Smith‘s comments about domestic violence. I almost want to say—nevermind, I was kidding. Or, more to the point, I was wrong. But it’s hard to admit when you’re wrong, so I’ll just say that seeing this footage makes me want to have an entirely different conversation. People. WHAT are we doing? Why am I looking at a video of a man knocking out his wife and dragging (and kicking—because at the 0:57 mark, he actually KICKS HER UNCONSCIOUS BODY) his wife out of an elevator. Before we even get to the incredible, effed up-ness of it all, I also have to say that there’s a part of me that doesn’t want to post this. If it was me, and I was in an abusive relationship, I would not want video evidence of my abuse on the internet. People are making GIFs in an attempt to show the severity of the attack, but I really feel for Janay Palmer. She’s married to him now, and I feel like I just don’t know what to say… other than that, we all need to do better as parents? Like, somewhere, somebody’s parents f—ed up, and now we have this video as a result. I also want to stress that what we are looking at may feel shocking, but IT IS NOT UNCOMMON. It is, instead, quite common. So, like I said, we need to do better. Click inside for more.

Good times at New York Fashion Week
All those supermodels (plus Rihanna) may have had a blast last night, but methinks Miley Cyrus is having the best New York Fashion Week ever. The Wrecking Ball singer showed up topless—nipple tassels in place— and ready to party at Alexander Wang‘s top-secret Brooklyn warehouse after-party. What she did then was, luckily, documented on social media for us. Click inside for some NSFW flicks to start your Monday off right :)

THIS IS NOT A DRILL!!!
OMG! Britney Spears posted a photo to her official Twitter profile last night that was snapped in the recording studio. I REPEAT! Britney Spears is once again the recording studio!! There have been crazy rumors that our dear Britney is planning to release an EP of new songs later this year or some such nonsense which I didn’t really put much stock in but … now that we know that she is back IN THE RECORDING STUDIO, I suppose it’s possible that rumors that she’ll release new music soon might be true. OMG. What?! Check out the full photo below and freak out with me, won’t you?! More »

That Ish Cray Of-The-Day
Well, I have to keep it real for a second. Women of color the world over (not all of us… but many of us) have been cringing as “twerking” has taken over the world. Why? Because, well, we invented it. OBVIOUSLY. And so it’s been a little funny to see…mhhh how do I put this nicely… booty-challenged women taking over and claiming “twerking” for their own, LOL. But it’s fine. Anyone can twerk, and that’s fine. But not everyone can do what Amber Rose just did, which is why this Instagram video taken by her husband Wiz Khalifa (who just scored his first Number 1 album), is now going viral. Click inside for more!
Joan Rivers was rushed to the hospital earlier this morning after she stopped breathing during surgery that was being performed in a medial clinic. According to the 911 call, Joan suffered “cardiac or respiratory arrest” while she was being treated in a NYC clinic and had to be rushed by ambulance to a hospital to revive her. Official information about Joan‘s current condition has not yet been released but TMZ‘s sources say that she is in “critical condition”. Wow. More »

So many 'What am I looking at?' moments, so little time...
First off, Amber Rose took to Instagram to let the world know that absolutely “no f—s were given,” in case you were curious. Her husband Wiz Khalifa wore a shirt promoting the prevention of suicide, which I thought was cool—but I’m sure nobody in attendance caught that. Looks I loved include Iggy Azalea‘s, Nicki Minaj‘s and… well.. Amber Rose. LMAO. Peep the gallery for more!

But was it really an accident...?
Listen, Trent is right. There’s really only one thing you need to see from last night’s MTV VMAs, and that’s Beyoncé and Blue Ivy performing… mainly Blue Ivy. But everyone is going to be talking about Nicki Minaj‘s massive wardrobe malfunction and I want you to be informed. So, I’m sitting there watching the show, and after performing Anaconda, Nicki comes back out to finish up Bang Bang with Ariana Grande and Jessie J. The entire time she’s clasping her dress and looking crazy — I actually thought she was planning some sort of big reveal and we were all about to see EVERYTHING (ya never know with the VMAs). But yeah, not so much. Click inside for more! UPDATE: Is it possible that the “wardrobe malfunction” was completely STAGED?!
