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?

Kanye West has a new album coming out on February 11. It was called Swish. Then he decided to change the title to Waves. Not sure why but maybe something to do with Nike and how he sh-ts on Nike all the time? Whatever. Doesn’t matter the reason. What matters is that Wiz Khalifa, who is the father of Amber Rose’s child, and Amber Rose and Kanye used to deal way back, doesn’t think much of Waves: Please don't take the wave. Full Story

Here’s your feel-good story of the day.
