It’s been a year since Mandy Moore split with musician hubby Ryan Adams. The two, who had recorded a duet together, were married for six years, but were rumored to have lived apart toward the end of their marriage. We were sad for Mandy, but it appears we don’t have to be sad any longer! The Red Band Society star recently posted a slew of winter vacation photos on Instagram, featuring her new boyfriend Taylor Goldsmith. Taylor is cute, and he’s the lead singer of the pretty sweet band Dawes. Clearly, Mandy has a type.
While E! reported the news of the two stepping out together in October, it’s clear now that things are quite official. More »
“Let it gooooo, let it gooooo!” We thought we were really done with that glorious theme song to Frozen, until this clip from the upcoming episode of Lip Sync Battle was released. Who’s singing Elsa’s ballad? Channing Tatum himself, and yes, he’s in costume. We got to see a preview of what’s to come last month, but this new clip gives us more Frozen action. Channing’s donning the blonde braid, glittery blue dress, and singing his little heart out. I think the best part is when he passionately mouths, “That perfect girl is gone!” From this clip we can tell Channing really put his heart into this performance–I was almost waiting for him to rip the dress of, Magic Mike style.

What in this world is better than Sally Field? That’s right, nothing. We’ve been missing the Forrest Gump star who hasn’t been on the big screen since she played Aunt May The Amazing Spider Man 2–and that was just a side role. Well there’s good news, Sally is back in the upcoming flick, Hello, My Name Is Doris. The movie is directed by Michael Showalter (Wet Hot American Summer, duh), and has a super cool cast including Max Greenfield of New Girl, Beth Behrs of Two Broke Girls, Natasha Lyonne, and Jack Antonoff.
The film, which played at SXSW this year, features Sally Field as Doris, an older woman living in the past who’s whole life seems to change when she meets the sexy and confident John (Max) at her job, and is embraced by him and his friends. It’s rare that we get movies about the sexuality of older women (or movies about older women at all, for that matter). More »
"In school I learned to apply cultural and historical context"
Last night at the 2015 Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, Beyoncé introduced First Lady Michelle Obama, who went on to speak about an important new campaign aimed at changing the educational opportunities (or lack thereof) for millions of young girls around the world. I’m really excited about the campaign because some of my favorite people are getting involved, including Kerry Washington, Mindy Kaling and Malala Yousafzai. Click inside for more!
LMAO, this is epic
THIS. GAVE. ME. LIFE. Have you ever loved a song so much, you’ve literally sung it at the top of your lungs, whilst tears were pouring down your face? OF COURSE you have. Has anyone ever taken a video of you doing this, and then the singer of that song posted it on her Instagram, for all of her 26.4 million followers to see? Probably not. Rihanna wants you to know that her #CurrentMood is that of this Rihanna Navy superfan in Rio de Janeiro, who loves the song What’s My Name more than you’ve probably ever loved anything in life.

New episodes are coming to Netflix!!!
Has there ever been a show that you’ve fallen in love with—like madly, deeply in love with—but you haven’t even seen it yet? Okay, that is me with Black Mirror. Last year one of our UK writers at Paste wrote a piece that I edited titled, Black Mirror: The Show That Will Cure Your Addiction in Five Steps and I’ve been obsessing over this show in my head since then. Also, there was a friggen Christmas special with Jon Hamm that I need in my life. Now that Netflix has announced Season Three is being released by the streaming device, my body is officially ready for a binge. The show is said to be one of the darkest, most scathing and entertaining indictments of our tech-obsessed world, and I want to know who’s watching already! Click inside for more!

This is going to be awesome, #SorryNotSorry
About a million years ago, we got our first look at Ja Rule‘s MTV reality show/docu-series Follow the Rules. At this point, we know all of these shows are gimmicky, we know they’re somewhat scripted (if not, like, 100% scripted), and we know the story is the same: ex-famous person still a little bit famous but mostly normal, look at him and his family going through normal stuff, except with a lot more money. Yet and still, I was excited because the promo was really funny! Finally, we have a release date: on October 26 I’ll be welcoming Ja Rule back into my home, as I once did years ago when I first copped Venni Vetti Vecci and blasted Suicide Freestyle for like three days straight. I’m here for you, Ja!
SHE DID THAT
This. THISSSSS. This is the main reason I’m mad at myself for missing the 2015 Emmy Awards live. I just KNEW someone was going to give a speech that made me re-examine my life. Please watch this speech from THE VIOLA DAVIS and get your life changed. And then read this really unsurprising story about how one actress took to Twitter to complain about how Viola Davis’ speech didn’t work for her, because All Actresses Matter. Bahahahaaa, then watch the Viola Davis speech again, because she [literally] wins all. Click inside for the full transcript!
The body is ready
Every time I read a new story with details about Season Two of Amazon’s Transparent, there’s a certain point where I actually have to tell myself to calm down. Calm down Shannon. There’s never gonna be another Season One. Just calm down. So as I read this new bit of casting news, I talked myself down from the heights of Transparent fandom, and reminded myself not to get my hopes up in ridiculous ways. But yeah, no. Anjelica Huston is coming to Transparent Season Two and I CANNNOOOOOTTTTTTTTTT! Click inside for more!
Prince Harry turned 31 years old today and to celebrate the occasion, he made his way to Goodwood Aerodrome in Chichester, England to help mark the occasion of the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. As you can see in the photos presented here, Harry is rockin’ some serious new facial hair which looks mighty damn fine, if I do say so myself. Click through the gallery to see hot Harry lookin’ hot on his birthday today and then click below to see the adorable photo of him that was shared by the official Twitter profile of British Monarchy to mark the occasion of his birth.
