A reader named Catherine sent us a link to Chris Pratt’s Facebook with the subject line “Pratt being Pratt”. He’s auctioning off a chance to win a trip to the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. Full Story

This is why. THIS IS WHY.

Mimi is touring Europe. Ahead of her tour, she gave an interview to The Sunday Times Style Magazine. When you read it, and I’ll embed the link, you’ll understand why (if for some f-cking reason you don’t actually know already) her upcoming “docu-series” is a NECESSITY. Full Story

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – when you email or tweet at me because Mimi’s in the news and I come to mind, thank you so much. It might be my greatest career achievement. To somehow, in some small way, be associated with our Glitter Butterfly, the Elusive Chanteuse…who, apparently, will be elusive no more because… She’s working on a reality show? Let’s just all lie down for a moment and process this before we continue. Full Story

When we watched the Oscars the other night there were a few times—maybe more than a few—where Lainey and I and our friends rolled our eyes at a moment or mocked a technical bobble, and then immediately said “oh, but we’re cynical TV assholes”. There is a lot that I know we criticize that other people are not worrying about (but how could you miss the guy holding up part of the Lady Gaga set?!). Full Story

One of the main features of this blog, and maybe the reason it exists, is to celebrate Mariah Carey and, in particular, the fact that she doesn't walk. I have dedicated probably hundreds of posts to this beautiful truth. All of those articles were uploaded with joy and gratitude. But none of them can now compare to this one and what you are about to see. Full Story

As Duana just mentioned in the previous post about Hamilton – and yes, Duana, you are right about Hamilton, but does that mean she has to text me, literally, EVERY SINGLE DAY, like, 8 times about it? – the back-to-back Hamilton-Kendrick Lamar pieces last night during the Grammys was glorious evidence that the same stories can be told in different ways and that new stories need to be told in as many ways as possible, despite institutional insistence that these stories be contained in one category, separate and safe, so as not to disrupt the status quo. Full Story

Over the weekend I emailed Lainey all excited about Maya Rudolph and Martin Short’s new variety show. Does this make me deeply uncool?
