Bey weekend, actually. As you know, some people treat Beyoncé’s birthday like it’s a holiday. I’m not sure any other celebrity birthday is acknowledged the way hers is. But, then again, as we saw at the VMAs last week, Beyoncé is singular. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I’ve fangirled Caity Weaver, who used to write for Gawker and now writes for GQ, several times on my blog, to the point where it might be alarming. Caity Weaver has made GQ a reading destination for me, not just a place I go to get some quotes from celebrities talking about themselves but a space for inspired writing.  Read Full Intro
