At the 2017 Emmys, Issa Rae had just been named CoverGirl’s latest face. Issa was asked about what working with CoverGirl meant to her in almost every red carpet interview that night.  “I remember just being in high school, seeing the ads, but you never, ever imagine 'someday I could be a CoverGirl. Full Story

Joel Edgerton forever separated himself from being confused with Sam Worthington when it turned out he’s a good filmmaker with his debut feature film, The Gift.

Let’s recap:  Last Friday, Taylor was papped leaving her New York City apartment, like old times, with Gigi Hadid and other members of her squad.

After years of pop cultural dominance, we’re adjusting to a new reality: Comic-Con is no longer a major industry event. Oh, the magazines still feature glossy previews and there are parties and “activations” galore, but at this point Comic-Con is a thing because we say it’s a thing, not because it’s actually driving a cultural moment. Full Story

Jennifer Lopez was with Alex Rodriguez at the MLB All-Star Game in DC last night. Look at her. She is unreal. It’s her birthday next week, she’s turning 49 years old. COME ON.
