Oh yes. Oh, we’re here. The future has arrived. Because do my eyes deceive me, or is that a 50-something woman on the cover of Rolling Stone – naked? It is, right? She looks great and all, and yes, lots of women at 50-esque don’t have that body but that’s not the point. Full Story

She kind of is already, right? Meryl is Meryl like Madonna is Madonna, like Beyonce is Beyonce, like Adele is Adele, like Lorde is Lorde. Meryl is Hollywood’s rock star (sorry Johnny),  so it makes sense that she will now play a rock star. Full Story

It’s Shailene Woodley’s big moment. Friday. Divergent. Are you going? Will Shailene Woodley follow Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence? Or will she be more like Lily Collins? The film is not getting great reviews. Just 31% right now on Rotten Tomatoes Full Story

Before the party, there’s the vote. This is Carey Mulligan in London on the set of the new film Suffragette, in which she plays Maude, “a foot soldier of the early feminist movement". Well, I guess it’s not a rom-com. Then again, rom-coms aren’t exactly Carey’s jam. Full Story

Jennifer Aniston turned 45 yesterday. She was reportedly in LA. Her fiancé Justin Theroux was in New York shooting his TV show. Is that problem? Is 45 a milestone? Jacek and I have spent birthdays apart. His birthday is a particularly tricky time because the Juno Awards always happen around his birthday and for years, I was assigned to go. Full Story

People keep sh-tting on Miley. On Gaga. And Katy Perry, she just skates right through it. Why? Is it because she sings about roaring female empowerment? Is it female empowerment if it’s hollow? "I am not a feminist, but I do believe in the strength of women." – Katy Perry Katy Perry covers the new GQ. Full Story

This photo of Meryl Streep and Emma Thompson was taken 10 years ago while they were promoting Angels In America. Which was my first thought when I saw them together last night at the NBR gala where Meryl presented Best Actress to her friend and, at the same time, delivered a speech that shat on Walt Disney for being a racist, sexist, misogynist asshole …without taking away anything from Emma’s accomplishment. Full Story

So a recent US Weekly headline posits that Candace Cameron Bure is “submissive” to her husband, and I have to commend the editors for not illustrating the article with a blindfold and whip, because you know that’s what most people are thinking. Full Story

It’s the holidays. So, time to eat, and time for the weight loss companies to exploit your eating guilt. And Porny’s the face of it. Every time you feel bad about all those scalloped potatoes, just think of Jessica Simpson – and if she can do it, you can too! Porny’s pushing Weight Watchers Christmas right now. Full Story

With the avalanche of celebrity-turned-lifestyle-experts, it’s easy to glaze over when they pull out the script: my family comes first, helping other women live more fulfilling lives, I just do this for fun but I’m really a wife/mom, cooking and cleaning are my hobbies, etc. We expect this narrative because no one can really say, “I need a steady cash flow and the roles are few and far between. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence gave an interview recently and sh-t on Joan Rivers’s show Fashion Police: "Shows like the Fashion Police and things like that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on things [that don't matter. They put values in all the things that are wrong and [show] that it’s ok to just point at people and call them ugly and call them fat and they call it fun. Full Story

This is what you do. But on stage? Sure. If you’re Miley Cyrus. I mean, OF COURSE. After all, she’s following in a long tradition of artists who aim to shock and hijack. This, for years and years and years, was Madonna’s blonde ambition. It’s only controversial if you’re talking about it, right? No matter who else is there, the conversation always ends up about the ONE person who was there. Full Story

This is Jessica Simpson out for dinner the other night with her freeloader. They were there with Ashlee Simpson, her boyfriend Evan Ross, and Cacee Cobb and Donald Faison. As you can see though, the main attraction was the Tit Shelf. It’s like she’s trying to breastfeed herself. She could very well breastfeed the entire table. Full Story
