Even though I have wondered at several (low) points of my life the last few months whether or not, um, Diplo – would I?, I still think there was too much Diplo last night during Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” performance. There should have been less Diplo and more BTS. Specifically more Taehyung. Full Story

Hi Duana, I’m desperate for your help. Having our fourth boy in a couple of weeks (that was our last chance of having a daughter ;)) and am stumped for a name! I’ve set my mind on a unique, original name to make him extra special as the fourth boy but this has generated weird, out there names that I’m afraid we’ll regret. Full Story

While everyone over at Buckingham Palace is hoping that the Jeffrey Epstein mess will go away, over in the United States, even though they bungled it for a decade (so let’s not give them too much credit), they’re still proceeding with an investigation, and today, there was a news conference held outside of Epstein’s New York mansion, with authorities directly commenting on Prince Andrew’s involvement – or lack thereof Full Story

Disney’s live-action remakes have been wildly successful—the only real miss is Pete’s Dragon, which remains the best of the lot, as an actual film and not just an exercise in IP management—so it is not surprising that a new version of Bambi is in the works. It will be the latest of Disney’s photo-real, pseudo-live action animated movies, done in the style of The Jungle Book and The Lion King. Full Story

Obviously social media has not been a pleasant place over the last couple of days, so I’m just here to try to pull out the best nonsense, something for us to collectively giggle (or eyeroll) about. Here’s a cat getting a makeover.           Full Story

Fashion wasn’t great at the Grammys last night but there were a couple of standouts. And by standouts I mean two women who understand that it’s supposed to be a spectacle. At the Oscars? Sure, maybe dial it back on the extra. But at the Grammys – that’s where the extra is supposed to come out and slap everyone in the face. Full Story

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes did not walk the carpet together at the Grammys. They were supposed to sit together, according to the seating chart that was released prior to the show, but there were no cutaways of the two during the broadcast. Camila delivered a touching performance dedicated to her father but, mostly, Shawn was a quiet presence. Full Story

The biggest song of 2019 was, indisputably, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” and all its remixes. So his performance last night was about showcasing all the versions of his track that kept it playing all year long. One of those remixes, of course, was “Seoul Town Road” with BTS. Full Story
