Yesterday (at least in Canada) was the finale for the first season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. In many ways, the finale was satisfying. We got a lot of screen time with AJ Pritchard, who is HOT AF. I saw a lot of “flooded my basement” in comments about him and honestly? Same. Also, if you’re wondering if his brother Curtis seems familiar, that’s because he was on Love Island Series 5! Love Island crossing over with Drag Race? I can die in peace now. Full Story

It’s been a rough couple of months for hair. In August, Timothee Chalamet traded his luscious locks for a bowl cut in The King. Lainey liked it. I was pretty lukewarm. Full Story

At the time of writing this, no new songs have been released. But a release is imminent, so stay alert. From pulling back from the public eye to a brand new album, Selena has come quite far in the past few years. A few days ago, Selena Sleuthers predicted that new music was on its way because Selena posted this throwback photo with a caption that seemed very lyric-y. Full Story

I have so much to say and not enough words to say it, so let’s get right down to business. Last Friday, Harry Styles released his new single and video “Lights Up” at 12:14am EST. I was still awake when it dropped (#WestCoastPrivilege) and basically couldn’t sleep for another three hours. Full Story

Rihanna covers the November issue of Vogue, looking stunning, as expected. A lot of ground was covered in the accompanying article, including her politics, music, and fashion. Enough material to spawn several different Twitter arguments, even about her nationality. Full Story

It’s been a wild couple of months in Miley Cyrus’s world. In August, she ended things with Liam Hemsworth, who filed for divorce a few weeks later. At the same time the breakup was confirmed, she started dating Kaitlynn Carter, who had just split up from her husband Brody Jenner a week prior. Full Story

Translating a show across the pond is often a tricky task. Despite a shared language and history, British and North American audiences have different senses of humour, use different cultural references, and even have different sensibilities. Jokes that are acceptable on one side might offend the other. Full Story

Every time I go to a party (so like once a year), my ice breaker is usually, “which one of the Fab Five is your favourite?” It’s like a personality quiz for your friends. If you don’t watch Queer Eye, I leave immediately. If your favourite is Antoni, you’re hella thirsty. Full Story
