Finally Someone Has the Guts to Tell the Truth About This Fucking Ugly Balenciaga Sneaker Finally Someone Has the Guts to Tell the Truth About This Fucking Ugly Balenciaga Sneaker

Dad sneakers are a fucking scourge and no one is doing more to try and convince you they’re chic and not hideous than current Balenciaga Creative Director Demna Gvasalia, patient zero for this cynical trend and a man who honestly just seems like he’s making fun of anyone thirsty enough to drop nine hundred bucks on…

All the Looks on the Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet, Starring Queen Mother Janet Jackson All the Looks on the Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet, Starring Queen Mother Janet Jackson

I’m going to be honest: I had to turn off the Billboard Music Awards a few moments in, unofficially because Westworld was starting, officially because I could not deal with Kelly Clarkson as host. That doesn’t mean I didn’t flip to the ultimate queen and my birthday twin Janet Jackson when she performed; it does mean…

Can Westworld Hosts Get UTIs? 

“Akane No Mai,” the Japanese title for this week’s episode of Westworld, roughly translates to “the dance of Akane”—but Akane is both a name and a word for “deep red,” aka BLOOD, aka a thing we saw a lot of in our first glimpse at Shogun World, the park for when Westworld is too boring. It was also a turning point in…

Rudy, You Fuckin' Dumbass Rudy, You Fuckin' Dumbass

Rudy Giuliani loves to pride himself on how he’s the savior of New York—even though he set up the city for its eventual blanket gentrification via draconian laws, among other destructive tactics—because he happened to be the mayor during 9/11, a fact he likes to bring up a lot. But there are certain universal…

Martha Stewart and Snoop Became BFFs After He Accidentally Got Her Stoned on National Television Martha Stewart and Snoop Became BFFs After He Accidentally Got Her Stoned on National Television

Snoop and Martha are the best because they prove that cultivating new adult friendships in middle age is totally possible, and also because they are each the most delightful people in complementary ways. So of course, it’s always fun to hear more details about how the weeded rapper and the weeding crafter have…

Audiences at Cannes Are Already Freaking Out Over BlacKkKlansman

At its world premiere on Monday in Cannes, Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman was reportedly received by a 10-minute standing ovation, after several points during the film when audiences erupted in applause. More precisely, via the Hollywood Reporter: “four minutes of applause during the credits and a six-minute standing…

Kristen Stewart Goes Shoeless at Cannes, Fuck Your Rules! Kristen Stewart Goes Shoeless at Cannes, Fuck Your Rules!

Perhaps you recall that women attendees of the Cannes Film Festival have been historically disallowed from wearing flat shoes on its oh-so-fancy red carpet, including a point in 2015 when women were turned away from a screening of Carol. Fuckin’ CAROL! You know who’s not with that, though, is Kristen Stewart,…

Pop Art on the Cannes Red Carpet Pop Art on the Cannes Red Carpet

Cannes kicked off in the South of France last night with its impossible array of crystalline gowns and expensive-looking make-up jobs. But every year, the fashion is more interesting not during the opening night gala, but in the daytime and other off-night premieres. No one embodies that better than Chinese pop star…

Every Sacred, Sacrilegious, and Fully Heathen Look at the Met Gala 2018 Every Sacred, Sacrilegious, and Fully Heathen Look at the Met Gala 2018

The rigid minds in the industry love to call the Met Gala “fashion prom,” but this year, it’s something else: the afterworld. A world of neverending happiness; you can always see the sun, day or night. There’s a lot of wiggle room in its 2018 theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” and with…

Talking With Tanya Saracho About Vida, Her Thrilling New Queer Latinx TV Series Talking With Tanya Saracho About Vida, Her Thrilling New Queer Latinx TV Series

On Sunday, Starz will air the first episode of Vida, a new series about two Mexican American sisters who, after their mother’s death, return to their quickly gentrifying neighborhood on the Eastside of LA. The show is groundbreaking, you may have heard, for its writer’s room, which is helmed by Mexican-born playwright…

Actually, I Don't Want Your Face Anywhere Near My Pussy Actually, I Don't Want Your Face Anywhere Near My Pussy

DJ Khaled proved today that he is, in fact, da worst, by being an adult man who adamantly brags that he does not go down on Nicole Tuck, his partner of many years. While this is dumb and pathetic of a man-baby stance to have, particularly towards the mother of your demonstrably beloved tiny son, I’m gonna go out on a…

Peep Lincoln's Log 

Who knew the 16th president was an Insta thottie!

The Affair Is Back and Everyone's Still Doing a Lot of Boning

The Affair, your favorite show about adult white people fucking each other (and each others’ lives) like they’re sophomores in high school, is BACK, baby—and it seems like everyone’s acting more selfish and dumber than ever!

The Fourth Estate Is a Crucial Look Into How the New York Times Covers Trump

There has never been a more fraught time to practice journalism in America, with the President regularly attacking the free press as “fake news” and undermining efforts to do the democratically crucial job of speaking truth to power, while some journalists have apparently become too comfortable in their access and…

Westworld Is Infiltrating Our Actual Lives, All According to Plan

We’re only on Episode 2 of Westworld’s second season, and already we have been thrust into a confounding spiral; not only have the human and host worlds crossed wires on the show, they seem to be doing so in our day-to-day lives, too.

Shayna McHayle, a.k.a Junglepussy, Lets Us Into Her Custom, Pink, Furry Closet

Most people know Shayna McHayle by her stage name, Junglepussy, and her powerful, biting raps therein. But as the born-and-raised Brooklynite preps her third album, JP3, out May 11, she’s also adding lines to her resumé. This year, she will make her feature film debut opposite Regina Hall in Support the Girls—a film…

Would You Have Sex With a Robot? Would You Have Sex With a Robot?

If you’re looking for signs that the promised dystopian future is quickly becoming the dystopian now, one iceberg-sized clue is that the sex partners of tomorrow will be lifelike sex robots, designed to spice up your withering marriage or simply just to help you get off. And while there are pressing issues surrounding …

Get Your Life, Mamí (to Be) Get Your Life, Mamí (to Be)

Cardi B popped out to perform “La Modelo” with Ozuna at Thursday night’s Billboard Latin Music Awards, and something else looked like it was about to pop out too: A BABY. Cardi recently cancelled a host of summer tour dates, and though her due date is reported to be sometime in July, the belly don’t lie. Though bodies…

Monét X. Change, Serving You 'Queen of Wakanda', Is the Queen of Our Hearts Monét X. Change, Serving You 'Queen of Wakanda', Is the Queen of Our Hearts

On the first true day of warm, spring weather in New York, RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Monét X. Change swept out of the bathroom, resplendent in a purple and green printed gown, covered in what looked like abstract renderings of heads of lettuce and maybe, a human brain. “I got this at the Bronx Terminal Market,…
