Here’s Your Morning Cry AKA My Favorite Internet Story Right Now

As you all know, I’m the Assistant TV Editor over at Paste Magazine and I had a really interesting experience one day. One of my writers wrote this great piece on the Simpsons a while back and I’d emailed him to say that he was getting all of these hilarious comments on the article. He told me that he never reads comments, so I e-mailed him back and shares a few of them. I didn’t argue with him on the comments thing because, honestly, that’s an incredibly smart decision for people who write online. Literally, everywhere else that isn’t PITNB the comments can just suck LOL. As Selena Gomez just showed us, people get crazy online and so I was really happy to see this piece from The Atlantic, titled A Positive Example of the Internet Comforting a Grieving Stranger. Get ready for your morning cry.

I’m so excited, and I was thrilled to read Viola Davis‘ thoughts on the new show, and how it stand apart from other work she’s gotten as a black actress. Click inside for more!

Uh-oh, someone’s turnin’ up in 2014! Selena Gomez is not playing around right now. Her Instagram page is blowing up RE: her hawt new tattoo, and a comment she left on a follower’s page.

The Tupac Musical ‘Holler If Ya Hear Me’ Bombs On Broadway, Will Close This Weekend

Welp … I guess the plan to bring the music of Tupac Shakur to the Broadway stage was too ambitious or not well-executed or whatever because we learn today that the show is closing early due to nonexistent ticket sales. Holler If Ya Hear Me opened on the Great White Way just a few weeks ago and never really caught on with either 2pac fans or Broadway fans. Because the show turned out to be a bomb, producers have decided to close the show early in order to cut their losses while they can. After only 38 performances (not including previews), Holler If Ya Hear Me will Peace the Spork Out this Sunday. More »

Lana Del Rey Tells ‘Rolling Stone’ Magazine That She Doesn’t Want YOU To Listen To Her Music

So, remember last month when Lana Del Rey told The Guardian newspaper that she wished she was dead only to recant later and deny that she wished for death after she got called out for her irresponsible comment by Frances Bean Cobain? Well, today we learn that LDR has given another interview, this time to Rolling Stone magazine, and she is saying more ridiculous things. Did you know that despite the fact that Lana Del Rey keeps releasing music for sale, she’d really rather you didn’t listen to her music because — she says — she really only makes her music for herself and it’s really no one else’s business so, yeah, don’t listen to her music. Um, ok. More »

Watch: Grumpy Cat Releases A Music Video For A Song Titled ‘Cat Summer’ Because OF COURSE There Is A Grumpy Cat Music Video

Worst. Music Video. Ever.

It’s taken some time but at long last, Grumpy Cat has released her first music video. Grumpy Cat, along with other so-called “celebrity cats” (including Nala Cat, Hamilton the Hipster Cat, Oskar the Blind Cat & Klaus) has teamed up with Friskies for the release of this music video for the song Cat Summer which features these cats laying around being cats. Yeah, not all that exciting. BUT, for every time this video is viewed, Friskies will donate a one meal to cats in need at shelters all around the country so … watch this video, repeatedly. I mean, the Internet was made for the existence of cat videos so it really shouldn’t be too hard to watch one more video, especially for such a good cause.

Sweet Escape

Last night was a very chill night for me, literally, since the temps have cooled in LA considerably over the past couple of nights. So what do I do when it gets colder? Why, I go out for gelato, of course. I met up with Tamar for a quick bite to eat because I wanted to thank her for everything she’s done for me in recent weeks and we had a really nice hang out session together. After a leisurely sushi dinner, we grabbed some gelato and went for a walk. It was a very nice night, indeed. More »
