As some of you know, I celebrated my Dirty Thirty with an amazingly wonderful, restful, and glorious solo vacation in New Orleans. The trip was a gift from my partner in babymaking, he made sure to set me up in a gorgeous hotel, because that is a thing that I am into. The Renaissance Pere Marquette did me good, and now I just want to go back. Like, right now—especially after seeing these photos of Nicki Minaj‘s hotel in Italy. This is just… totally unfair.

A. World. Of. HELL! NO!
Ugh. In today’s inevitable remake news, we learn that Michael Bay is planning to remake the classic Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece film The Birds (1963). I mean … I can’t even sigh loud enough at this news. Bay, IMHO, managed to take all of the fun out of the Transformers cartoon with his annoyingly over-the-top movie adaptations and now he wants to turn a Hitchcock classic into one of his films? No. I mean … just, no. For the most part, remakes are usually bad ideas … but this one has to be the worst idea ever. Naomi Watts is reportedly being courted to play the role that Tippi Hedron played in the original Hitchcock film so … there’s that. But no. The only thing that keeps resounding in my head is flatly and plainly, No. More »
"She just told me, 'I'm going to be considered black. Don't blow my cover."
This is the story that just won’t quit—at least not for a little while. Because some of us are still curious as to WTF possessed Rachel Dolezal to invent a black identity for herself, lying to the whole world for inexplicable reasons, here is an explanation of sorts from her black adopted brother, Ezra (the one in the far left of the photo). Ezra spoke to Buzzfeed News and confirmed that Rachel asked him to help her keep up this lie, stating simply that in Spokane, she was to be considered black. We all have family secrets, but daaammmmn Gina! (#AskRachel where that one’s from.) This is insane. Click inside for more!
Don't act like you haven't been asking for this
Enough with the remakes already! everyone pretends to scream. Don’t do it guys! Don’t act like you don’t know why Hollywood keeps churning out the remakes! It’s because people will kick and scream about how much they’re done with Hollywood remakes, all the way to the movie theatre, to see the latest Hollywood remakes. I’m telling you, the only way to make it stop is to stop making them money! So, if any of you see this Kindergarten Cop remake, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. YOU ARE WHAT IS WRONG WITH HOLLYWOOD/AMERICA. Okay, just kidding. But you’re not allowed to see this and ever, ever groan about a new remake, because. Come on. You just can’t. Anyway, I might see this because, nostalgia and stuff.

Yesterday news that Homer and Marge Simpson will be breaking up on the upcoming season of The Simpsons swept the Internets after showrunner Al Jean was quoted by Variety as saying that the couple will be getting “legally separated” after 26 years of fictional animated marriage. After the story blew up, Jean backtracked significantly on Twitter to say that he never actually said that the couple were breaking up. A promo image of Bart Simpson writing Homer and Marge Are Not Breaking Up repeatedly on his classroom chalkboard was also released so, yeah, it sounds like Jean‘s comment about the couple’s “legal separation” caused a lot of unintended trouble.

Blame Lena Dunham!
There will be a lot of changes coming in the upcoming 27th season of The Simpsons. Earlier this week, we learned that Sideshow Bob will finally kill Bart Simpson on the show … tho, it will happen in the show’s annual Treehouse of Terror Hallowe’en episode, so it really doesn’t count. Today we learn the very sad news that Homer and Marge Simpson will be breaking up on the show. That’s right, after 26 years of fictional marriage, this animated couple will file for legal separation after Homer leaves Marge for a pharmacist that will be voiced by Lena Dunham. Um, WHAT?! More »
"I am sorry to anyone I have offended or disappointed"
Iggy Azalea has had some ups and downs lately … from a HIGH of getting to record and release a song with Britney Spears to a low of having to cancel her upcoming tour, reportedly due to poor ticket sales. Things started looking up again for Iggy when it was revealed that she got engaged to be married to her boyfriend Nick Young. Today, we learn that things are back on the way down as Azalea was forced to pull out of an upcoming Gay Pride performance in Pittsburgh after multiple instances of homophobia and racism were found on Iggy Azalea‘s Twitter profile. Iggy has released an official statement announcing her decision to pull out of the pride performance and it is filled with lots of apologies. Read it below. More »

Also, I take issue with this announcement in general
Ya know, we never talk about how hard it is to be a superfan. It’s draining, it’s exhausting, and there’s just no way to explain to your Mom why there’s a makeshift shrine to DMX on your bedroom floor (true story, circa 1999). So I feel for the Beyhive today, especially since many of them got up at the crack of dawn or something to hear Beyoncé‘s BIG MAJORLY HUGE announcement on Good Morning America, only to be disappointed with maybe the least exciting Beyoncé news ever.
