WHAT ELSE WOULD SHE PRESENT WITH??? I’m sorry I couldn’t get to this yesterday. I was too consumed with Beyonce. But today is the day of (commercialised) love. And Celine Dion is the angel of all the love, commercial and otherwise. Full Story

Valentine’s Day can be an oppressive (fake) holiday. What if there is no romance in your life? For two weeks everyone’s vomiting hearts. And on the day of, people all around you are getting ready to release seminal fluids into each other while you try half-heartedly to be excited about going home and digging into those short ribs you have in the slow cooker. Full Story

We weren’t going to give Blue her own post. Lainey and I discussed just mentioning Blue’s wonderfulness in a post about Beyoncé. That would not have been enough. Blue Ivy Carter showed up last in her finest form, ready to entertain the world and save a fake car full of grown-ass adults who sing for a living from butchering a classic karaoke song. Full Story

Last month my favourite, Taffy Brodesser-Akner, who writes for GQ, was photographed with Tom Hiddleston and when those pictures came out, I posted that I couldn’t wait, couldn’t f-cking wait, to read the article. Full Story

Maybe we disagree about the Super Bowl. Or whether or not Prince Harry will marry Meghan Markle. But here’s something we can all agree on, I promise. Jackie Chan is a giant of Chinese cinema. Full Story

Kristen Stewart did a solid job hosting SNL, but Melissa McCarthy stole the show—arguably the whole season—with her impression of Press Secretary Sean Spicer. There had been no word that McCarthy was coming on, so it was a total surprise, which quickly gave way to a vengeful kind of delight when it became immediately clear that McCarthy’s impression isn’t just a stunt. Full Story

When it was announced a few weeks ago that Kristen Stewart would be hosting Saturday Night Live, I wrote that I was excited, excited because I thought she was ready, ready to claim all that’s been said about her over the last decade, and laugh at her public persona, and then “swing the conversation in a new direction”. Full Story

If you’re not into something, or someone, and people keep talking about them, it can feel straight-up aggressive.
