"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.

Did you watch this horrifying interview though?!
There is no way I could have sat through the FOX News interview with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. Sometimes, it’s good to rage, and other times I just have to save myself from the insanity that is two people going on TV to speak for their grown ass son and to explain away his childish behavior that was totally resolved so it doesn’t even matter anyway. All that to say, I did not watch the interview, but I’ve seen a few clips and now support my decision to not watch the interview. On the one hand, some of these comments (and the lies, ohhh the LIES) are infuriating, and then I also thought, “This is a pretty typical response.” Click inside for more.

This photo hurts to look at
If you are a rapper, there’s a 97% chance that, at some point or another, you’ve bragged about how baller you are. There’s nothing anyone can do about it, it’s just a part of the culture at this point-you must invoke your baller-istic behavior. So Nicki Minaj is just doing her part to keep up the rapper status quo with this new photo. But, considering the fact that I just had to reevaluate my whole life/budget because I spent about $50 at the pharmacy on over-the-counter medicine for one of my babies, this photo is painful to look at. Like, wicked painful. So… enjoy?

"The Birth of a Plan Gone Wrong"
OK … this is really weird. A couple of months ago, The Hollywood Reporter caught wind that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig would be starring in a made-for-TV movie for Lifetime and after they reported the news, Ferrell seemingly got so pissed that the secret was spoiled that he made it appear that the movie would be scrapped and would never be released. This week, billboard advertising the June 20 release of this odd Lifetime movie titled A Deadly Adoption started popping up all over LA, letting us know that the movie is being released after all. I mean … it sounds like a mess. The movie tagline for A Deadly Adoption is The Birth of a Plan Gone Wrong. LOL, OK. And the billboards have the glaring error that the movie will be released on SUNDAY June 20 when, in fact, June 20 is actually a Saturday. MESS.

Feel free to boycott this ridiculousness with me.
By now I’m sure you’ve seen the commercials for Cameron Crowe‘s new film Aloha, starring Emma Stone, Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, Alec Baldwin, and some other Hollywood favorites. The trailer looked kinda meh to me, not like something I’d be rushing to see, but probably something I’d have fun watching on Netflix or HBO Go. Welp, not anymore. Did you guys know that there are no Asian or Asian-American actresses in the universe? And they were forced to cast Emma Stone in the role of… wait for it… Allison Ng. Yup. That’s why they had to do that. Obviously. Click inside for more!
I am forced to co-sign Jaden, once again
Okay, so you guys know how Amandla Stenberg is my homegirl, and just all around one of my favorite celebrities right now. And I love to check out her Instagram page to see what she’s posting, and what messages she’s sending out to her followers—because they’re always great…… but you can imagine my surprise when I went on last night and saw that Rue is all grown up and going to prom with um Jaden. As in, Smith. The Jaden Smith, who is now getting two nice posts from me about him, which maybe means I accept him or something? I dunno, this is so weird, but the pictures are so damn cute!

"I demand that I climax. Women should demand that."
Well, I am just in love with this interview Nicki Minaj gave Cosmopolitan Magazine. It is, like, all over the place. What I mean is, on the one hand she’s saying things that people (including people like me) will want to automatically qualify as feminist, and then on the other hand she’s saying that when she grows up she wants to be barefoot and pregnant. LMAO! I love that she does not seem to have a significant amount of effs to give concerning our definitions of feminism and women empowerment and what agency means.

Video of a Cannes Film Festival panel discussion/press conference for Mad Max: Fury Road has come to light that shows a very small reporter from the Toronto Star newspaper asking actor Tom Hardy a very sexist question about the film. When Hardy was asked if (while reading the script for Fury Road) he ever thought “why are all these women in” this “man’s movie”, Tom gave the perfect/only answer he could give. The reporter prefaced his question by revealing that he has “five sisters, a daughter, a wife and a mother” so he knows what it’s like to be “outgunned by estrogen“, as if that would make him sound better? More intelligent? Funny? When, in actuality, his question made him look like a sexist asshole. Go to the 9:45 mark to watch this exchange and see how well Tom Hardy handled this very idiotic question.
