On The Duggars, (White) Privilege, And Religion As The Worst Crutch Ever

An unapologetic rant

When you become a parent, everything doesn’t change immediately, or over night. One thing I’ve noticed is that, while the big adjustments might take time, there are some little things that seem to change almost immediately. For me, one seemingly small thing was that I couldn’t stomache certain news stories anymore. Most of the time I have to change the channel when a baby’s body is found somewhere, or when I hear about young children being abused. It’s like my body just cannot handle that reality, whereas before I would feel shocked or angry, but it wouldn’t sit with me like it does now. So it’s hard for me to write about this, but I’ve gone from wanting to ignore this story, to reading more and more about, to being disgusted and now just plain pissed off. So fine. Let’s do it. Let’s talk about the fucking Duggars.

Melissa McCarthy Proves Feminism Is The New Gangsta, Destroys Sexist Critic On The Red Carpet

Sexism "is an intense sickness."

This is pretty much my favorite story circulating online right now. I’ll admit that I haven’t seen Melissa McCarthy‘s recent movies, but I’ve been a fan of her comedy for some time now and I’m so happy to hear that she’s not taking shit from people. That’s pretty much the basis for any movement—feminism, black rights, LGBTQ rights—people deciding individually and collectively that they’re finished taking shit. Melissa McCarthy got approached by a critic who wanted to be all chummy with her, after lit’rally writing that “she was “only a good actor when [she] looked more attractive.” Suffice it to say, McCarthy [verbally] destroyed him.

Voice Actor Harry Shearer Has Been Let Go From ‘The Simpsons’, The Show Will Go On Without Him

Mr. Burns, Ned Flanders, Waylon Smithers, Principal Skinner all in jeopardy

Wow. Last week it was announced that the long running animated series The Simpsons was renewed for a record-breaking 27th and 28th season and it was also announced last week that all of the main voice actors had signed new contracts for the show … except for one. At the time, it wasn’t revealed which voice actor was holding out but today … we know. Harry Shearer, the voice actor who gives life to characters like Montgomery Burns, Ned Flanders, Waylon Smithers and Principal Skinner, has been let go from the show. Both Shearer and Simpsons showrunner Al Jean have confirmed the news that he has been let go from the show … but Jean promises that the characters Shearer voiced will live on … with someone else providing the voices. Ugh. More »

Fox Is Considering ‘Another Version Of 24′ That Might NOT Include Jack Bauer

I don't know how to feel about this

After Fox successfully managed to reboot their long-running hit TV series 24 last year with a limited season run, the network is considering bringing to life “another version of 24” that might be based around a new character … NOT Jack Bauer (played by Kiefer Sutherland). As I understand it, after last year’s 24: Live Another Day was a moderate TV ratings hit, Fox starting considering a redux of the show that would focus on a new central character. Now that Sutherland has gone on the record to say that he “doesn’t see” himself starring in any future eps of 24, it would appear that Fox is considering moving forward with “another version” of the show sans Jack Bauer. HMMMMMM. More »

Zac Efron Has Been Added To The Cast Of ‘Empire’ . . . As Lucious Lyon’s Fourth Son? [UPDATE]

Whaaaaaaat?

Um … so … there is a lot of great news coming from Fox about the forthcoming second season of Empire, set to premiere on the network later this year with a longer season (18 episodes instead of 12), two “finale” episodes (a winter finale and a season finale) and a collection of original songs for the show to be written by Timbaland and Ne-Yo. BUT, I think the most shocking news about Empire season 2 (that has been revealed thus far) is the confirmation that Zac EfronYes, ZAC EFRON — has been added to the cast of Empire as the as yet-unseen/unknown fourth son of Lucious Lyon (played by Terrance Howard). Um … WHAT?! UPDATE: It looks like Fox has not confirmed this casting news as true … More »

Conspiracy Theorists Do Not Believe Princess Charlotte Is Real, Do Not Believe Kate Middleton Birthed Her, Etc.

"Kate must have been wearing a fake belly showing to the people that she was pregnant"

Over the weekend, Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed the birth of their second child, a daughter they named Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Almost as soon as Kate and Wills stepped out of the hospital with their newborn princess swaddled in their arms (just hours after she was born), conspiracy theorists started a campaign of theories ranging from claims that the baby was born via surrogate days ago to claims that the baby in Kate‘s arms was a doll. The loudest of these conspiracy theories are coming from Russia, obvs, and are honestly too silly to even consider taking seriously … OR ARE THEY?! More »

This Miley Cyrus Barbie Has Pink Armpit Hair, Obviously

ADORBS. Just kidding, it's terrifying.

Maybe this Monday morning you were thinking, “I need a change—I need to try something new.” If that’s the case, then you have Miley Cyrus to thank, because boy. Does she have an idea for you! A little while back she actually debuted her pink armpit hair on Instagram with this lovely little NSFW photo, and apparently someone decided to make a Barbie version of this look. Personally, I’ll be sticking with the Ava DuVernay doll, but you should probably take a look at this one anyway. Click inside for more!

Why Has Britney Spears Deleted All References To Her New Single ‘Pretty Girls’ From Her Social Media Accounts? [UPDATE]

Has her ankle injury spoiled plans for the 'Pretty Girls' release?

In the past week or so, Britney Spears has been tweeting about the forthcoming release of her new single Pretty Girls (which is sure to be the smash hit song of the summer) but not long after she injured her ankle while performing her Las Vegas show Wednesday night, all mention of Pretty Girls has been scrubbed from Britney‘s social media accounts. Britney‘s injury resulted in her having to cancel two of her concert performances this weekend and it is feared that she may also cancel the live performance she was supposed to do at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards where Pretty Girls was to have its live debut. For whatever reason, all the tweets and promotion that Britney has done for her new single has disappeared … so we be worried? More »

Despite Comments Made By The Brown Family, Bobbi Kristina Remains In A Coma

You simply cannot believe a word the Brown family says

Earlier today we learned of a truly unbelievable report from both Bobby Brown and his sister Tina Brown that Bobbi Kristina is “awake” and “off life support” for the first time since her drowning accident in January. With no proof given at all, word of BK‘s “recovery” spread like wildfire. Right now, tho, we learn from sources at the long-term medical facility where Bobbi Kristina is still recovering that no, she has not “awoken” from her coma and that her condition remains unchanged. Whether it’s wishful thinking, misinformation or flat out lies, it’s sadly evident that the Brown family just cannot be believed at all when it comes to Bobbi Kristina Brown. More »
