This is a bona fide TRAVESTY
Ugh. For years now, uninspired producers have been mining properties from the past in order to reboot them for a new generation to capitalize from. Books, TV shows and movies from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s have been retooled and revamped in new modern incarnations, usually in pretty bad ways. Today we learn that the ’80s toy/cartoon Rainbow Brite has been reimagined as a new animated TV series which looks so painfully bad that I cringe even thinking about the horror that YOU will feel when you watch the trailer above. Trust me, I feel your pain … I’ve already watched it and I hate my eyes for what they have seen. This new version of Rainbow Brite is such shit that, except for the fact that actress Molly Ringwald voices the villain, I can’t even think of one positive thing to say about it. But, in order to see that I am not exaggerating, you have to watch the trailer above and see what they have done to Rainbow Brite … then you can cleanse your palette below by watching a FULL episode of the original ’80s cartoon version of Rainbow Brite.

aka 'The Song About Harry Styles'
Yesterday we got to hear a very short snippet of Taylor Swift‘s new song Out of the Woods, the second from her forthcoming new album 1989, and as you may recall — that snippet was painfully short. Today we get to hear the song in full and, as you can hear above, it’s a pretty great pop song. Rumor claims that this song was written about Taylor‘s short romantic relationship with Harry Styles of One Direction and a careful dissection of the lyrics appears to back up that rumor. Have a listen of the song in full above and then click below to read the lyrics and see if you can piece together Taylor‘s romance with Harry from the lyrics of this song. UPDATE: If he embed above isn’t working, there is a working stream of the song below. More »

'Como La Flor'
The group HAIM ended their Days Are Gone Tour in Mexico City, Mexico last night and during their set they paid homage to the late Tejano music superstar Selena with a little sing-a-long with the audience.

The full song is released tomorrow
Taylor Swift is about to unleash a new song from her new album but before she does so, she is teasing us today with a short snippet of the track to get us excited. Out of the Woods is Taylor‘s new song and this morning on Good Morning America, a short portion of what sounds like the chorus was previewed on national television. It has been suggested that Out of the Woods is a song that Taylor wrote about her relationship with Harry Styles of One Direction … so once the song is released in full tomorrow, a proper dissection of the song’s lyrics can be undertaken to determine the validity of that claim. Click above to hear this short sample of Out of the Woods. Does this clip make you excited to hear the full song tomorrow?
Let's discuss the greatest show/televised feminist movement on Earth
This season of The Good Wife has been incredible, but last night’s episode, “Oppo Research” was full of so much slayage, I felt like I never wanted to watch another television drama. Including Scandal. I’m sorry, I’m NOT sorry. The real, true excitement I felt last night was something I haven’t felt in so long/maybe ever. Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) has been toying with the idea of running for State’s Attorney, but last night ish got real. And I need to talk about it! Obviously, I am about to drop HELLA, HELLA SPOILERS, so if you watched the episode, click inside for more!
PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum
Over the past few weeks I’ve been trying to figure out WTF happened to Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose. Seriously. What happened?! Now, okay. Obviously, I haven’t been grappling with it in the wee hours of the night—it’s not my marriage, it’s not my struggle. However, there’s something that really sucks about celebrity breakups, especially when it’s a celebrity couple you decided—for whatever reason—was totally gonna work. It’s like that cool couple that you’re friends with—you know who they are. They’re different. They’re cool. They’re going to Paris like Kate and Leo in Revolutionary Road. Except… yeah. Then they don’t go to Paris, and by the end of the movie you’re crying and trying to figure out how your relationship is going to work if they didn’t even make it to Paris, and they had it all planned out! That’s how I feel about Wizlifah, and I need to discuss. Click inside for more!
And he brought along Dan Cortese with him
Earlier this week, we got to see the video promos for this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live which feature former SNL castmember Bill Hader as host. Bill‘s ep of SNL aired live from New York last night and as you can see in the embed above, he brought back one of his most beloved SNL characters with him — Stefon. As per usual, Hader‘s Stefon delivered colorful descriptions of the hottest new clubs in NYC while having a hard time keeping a straight face. Honestly, I’ve seen better Stefon bits before but it sure was nice to have the character back on Saturday Night Live again.
