Who’s Coming With Me to Keith Sweat’s Cruise? NOBODDDYYY

It’s apparently 1996 because the Patron Saint of Begging For Love, Keith Sweat, is having a cruise in April. And it’s for the “Grown and Sexy.” Oh. Someone somewhere saw this flyer and thought that this would be the ideal vacation for them to take with the person they call their “beau.” …

Dear King Children, You Better Not Sell Your Daddy’s Bible and Medal!

This sternly-worded letter has been on my spirit all week. Dr. Bernice King wrote a letter talmbout how her brothers are suing her to get her to transfer Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Bible and Nobel Peace Prize medal to them so they can sell it. I was like WHAT …

Pharrell came to the 2014 GRAMMYs in a hat that looked awesomely ridiculous so the internet found its latest meme. I’m not sure if he lost a bet or if he wanted to make the braodcast more interesting but Thank you, FOREVER FAHN! And congrats on all the awards! There …

Dear Lupita Nyong’o, Why Must You Slay Us Completely?

Dear Madonna, NOPE! You Cannot Use That Word

Social media keeps showing us that some of our favorite celebrities should really make use of their publicists 24/7 for all things. Also, they need to hire community managers to handle their accounts because when left to their own devices, they blow shit up so properly and so quickly. Madonna …

I Watched SNL (Hosted by Drake and Featuring Sasheer Zamata) Last Night

Last night’s Saturday Night Live was highly anticipated because Drake was hosting (and was the musical guest) but also because it was Sasheer Zamata’s first show as a featured castmember. As a former huge fan of SNL and a currently jaded sometimes watcher, I didn’t even decide to tune in …

Tina Fey’s Prayer For Her Daughter is Hilarity

I am a HUGE fan of Tina Fey. She’s one of my sheroes (along with her BFF Amy Poehler). I wanna be their third wheel so bad. They’re the main reason I even feel like watching the Golden Globe Awards tonight. Last year, I read Tina’s book Bossypants and it’s …
