Apparently this exercise is good for your ass muscles. OK. I have some questions. Is it better or worse for your ass muscles than squats? I thought squats were the end-all-and-be-all of ass exercises. Was that a lie? Or is it that squats are preferable to these, um, weighted thrusts (weight-f-king?) because they're not as high profile. Full Story

YES, PLEASE. I yell those two words at my computer screen often. Usually, it’s at pictures of Michael Bae Jordan or when I see a casting announcement I’m excited for. Sometimes, I yell YES, PLEASE at Netflix specifically, like when they’re giving me a new musical to obsess over or crappy Christmas rom-coms to binge. Full Story

Whenever a celebrity trends on Twitter, especially when it’s a celeb we don’t talk about often, I worry it’s because something bad happened. I worry for the health of that celebrity. Jill Scott was trending yesterday. She’s fine. Jill Scott is better than fine.  Jill Scott was trending because of this NSFW video, for those who missed it: Bruh why is Jill Scot sucking air dick pic.twitter.com/nNxlDKyKUY Full Story

The Girl in the Spider’s Web is an attempt to reboot the potential franchise started by the English-language reboot of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but it did not open well, with less than $10 million on opening weekend. And with a B CinemaScore, it didn’t really impress audiences, either. Full Story

Duana is getting her wish, over and over again, this year - maybe not how she initially imagined it, but I don’t think she’s complaining. She predicted “tiaras and sh-t” and we’ve seen some “tiaras and sh-t” in 2018, haven’t we?  Here’s the latest tiara of 2018 - worn by Jennifer Aniston, in the first trailer for the upcoming Dumplin’, based on Julie Murphy’s book about a girl called Willowdean, nickname Dumplin’, who enters a beauty pageant as an act of subversion. Full Story

There were reports originating out of the UK recently that they’ve had to delay shooting the Top Gun sequel so that Tom Cruise could learn to fly fighter jets. Production has NOT stopped on the movie. And Tom Cruise is NOT going to be flying fighter jets in the movie - because only official military personnel can fly real fighter jets. Full Story

When Lainey teased that Céline Dion would be releasing a new promo for her gender neutral kids’ clothing line where she gets thrown to the ground and handcuffed by police, I was worried this was going to be Celine’s Kendall Jenner Pepsi moment. Full Story

Back in the day, many celebrities would mark their official coming out as a couple with a red carpet appearance. The “red carpet debut” has long been a gossip staple. But “red carpet debut” is not that relatable. How many of us get to walk red carpets on our own, let alone have occasion to walk one with a new romantic interest?  Social media changed that though. Full Story
