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

This week marked the debut for A Little Late with Lilly Singh, the former YouTuber, replacing Last Call with Carson Daly, which occupied the slot since 2002. Lilly’s show is fresh and original. She upholds some of the popular late night traditions, like the monologue, but she puts a specific Lilly spin on them, turning them into moments or sketches. Full Story

Back when the Jonas Brothers first announced their reunion with the release of Sucker, I was skeptical of its success, the need for their reunion, or whether they’d last at all. I even posed the question, “are we really going to still be talking about the Jo Bros by the time the summer comes around?” Oh, me of little faith. Full Story

Which demographic does the MTV VMAs appeal to? I watched the show with my cousins and their children, so we had an age range of like 7 years old to late 40s, with myself right in the middle. That meant that I heard the question “who’s that?” directed at both Missy Elliott AND Lizzo. Full Story

I have been obsessed with Miley’s “Slide Away” since she first released it a week and a half ago. It’s catchy as hell, I’ve been listening to it on the drive to and from work, which is partly a depressing way to start your day, but it’s also liberating and freeing at the same time. Full Story

Yesterday, RuPaul released a video on VH1’s YouTube channel confirming that both All Stars Season 5 and RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12 would be airing “soon.” I’m a huge Drag Race fan, as you’re probably aware. I just saw Miss Vanjie live over the weekend (yes, it was awesome), and RuPaul’s Drag Race was my first post on the site. Full Story
