Celebs Save Their Fanciest Jams for Cannes Celebs Save Their Fanciest Jams for Cannes

Cannes is always the fanciest film festival for various reasons that include: 1. Snobby (hates Netflix); 2. Storied (been going on for a long time) 3. Nostalgic (old-world glamour is the wave); 4. South of France (it’s the South of France). They also debut and sell movies and shit. The opening night red carpet is such…

Honestly, Who Doesn't Lose It When Large Bells Clang? Honestly, Who Doesn't Lose It When Large Bells Clang?

I suppose it should not be a surprise that two guys who added rape scenes to a pre-existing storyline would default at the last minute to truly obvious, reductive hysteria tropes about a woman who, thus far, they have painted as a hero (to the point of truly obvious, reductive white savior tropes). That said, I still…

Everyone on Game of Thrones Needs a Good 8 Hours of Sleep: An Open Thread Everyone on Game of Thrones Needs a Good 8 Hours of Sleep: An Open Thread

Game of Boners is back tomorrow for its penultimate edition, but until then, let’s chat about the happenings on the second-to-last episode of the series. Open thread for all your feelings and meditations on how we all really need nutrition and a good night’s sleep to function at optimal levels, even fricken Dragon…

Elites Go Camping: Every Look from the 2019 Met Gala Red Carpet Elites Go Camping: Every Look from the 2019 Met Gala Red Carpet

Every Met Gala theme leads to a glorious spectacle and a test of one’s patience: For every attendee who nails the concept, there are 12 who show up in some boringly pretty garbage that squanders the opportunity to get weird and, at best, veers unconvincingly off topic. Last year’s Catholicism theme was probably one of…

A COCK IS NOT A TRUE QUALIFICATION! A COCK IS NOT A TRUE QUALIFICATION!

The most egregious workplace discrimination I’ve ever experienced involved a male usurper systemically trying to take my job despite being wildly under-qualified to do it and and, one by one, turning the other men around us, formerly allies, against me. The rage, despair, and isolation I felt was visceral; if I had a…

Pour Some Out for Basically Everybody... A Game of Thrones Open Thread Pour Some Out for Basically Everybody... A Game of Thrones Open Thread

Episode 4 of the final GoT season felt like a 6 a.m. comedown after a rave (or a wine feast after a big battle), and then having to drive home in the chaos of festival traffic with a broken heart and brain. Game of Boners is back in the morning with a full review, but for now... Next episode is gonna be wild, no? Open…

Arya Stark Is the One True King Arya Stark Is the One True King

You ever think about how, since this show started, Arya hasn’t gotten a day off? Sure, maybe that day at Hot Pie’s restaurant last season, but that was more of a lunch break; even her entire time back at Winterfell—her first jaunt home in nine years—has been spent scheming and unraveling schemes and slicing necks.…

Game of Thrones Decompression Corner: Let's Talk About Our Freakin Feelings! Game of Thrones Decompression Corner: Let's Talk About Our Freakin Feelings!

Well, it happened. Bloodbath ensued and you-know-who and you-know-who and you-know-who-else fucking croaked and some major other fucking shit happened and I’m openly bawling in my living room, y’all. Before tomorrow morning’s Game of Boners review, here’s an open thread for all relevant feelings, disbelief,…

Arya Fucks, Deal With It! Arya Fucks, Deal With It!

Last week, after Arya and Gendry reunited at Winterfell and started giving each other bedroom eyes, there was some resistance across social media to the concept that the little gal we’ve grown up with might actually want to lay it down and fuck the one dude she’s been sweet on for several seasons. Before we go on, I…

Well Shit, I Guess Let's Chat About That Episode of Game of Thrones Well Shit, I Guess Let's Chat About That Episode of Game of Thrones

Perhaps we should decompress after the second episode of the last season, the calm before the storm, or the boring chapter you speed-read through before you get to the juicy shit—whatever you want to call it. Finally some truths got told, some folks got to smash, and a few necessary wight-killing weapons were…

Spray Tanning Is So Much Deeper Than I Thought

It’s dawning on me that I have missed out on approximately six years of perfect television by not watching Vanderpump Rules, a show I have skipped only because I already watch too much other television and I must somehow make time to like, have a life.

The Gang's All Back Together in the Charming Family Dramedy Game of Thrones The Gang's All Back Together in the Charming Family Dramedy Game of Thrones

What does it take to keep together a family, whether inherited or chosen, when a bunch of motherfuckers—dead, alive—want to eradicate you via sword and ice magic? The answer, according to the wonderfully loving family program Game of Thrones, is unity and helping one another.

Watch the Trailer for Agama, Jezebel's First-Ever Short Documentary

Agama is the type of spiritual retreat that has, in the shadow of the wellness movement, become increasingly fashionable. Located in Koh Phangan, Thailand, it is a tropical, paradise-like community focused on nurturing mental and physical health, or as Agama’s website puts it, the “secret spiritual path of true…

Mainline This Fleabag Trailer to My Veins!

There are many reasons I lament living in New York instead of London, but the main one is that the Brits make the best television shows and it takes like six months for them to show up stateside, if they do at all. (I know there is some way to juke the country codes, but I do not have time for all of that.) So the…

A Definitive List of Game of Thrones Characters Who Should Fuck A Definitive List of Game of Thrones Characters Who Should Fuck

For those of you who have not yet seen Game of Thrones, whose final season is clearly the TV event of the decade, here is a quick summary before it premieres this Sunday: A bunch of families want power after a rich family bamboozles them out of the kingdom via incest. A slew of these families are bloodily slaughtered,…

The Game of Thrones Gang Gussied Up and Got Back Together on the Season 8 Premiere Red Carpet The Game of Thrones Gang Gussied Up and Got Back Together on the Season 8 Premiere Red Carpet

If your Game of Thrones rewatches have blurred your reality, last night’s Season 8 premiere at Radio City Music Hall was a good reminder that the people who died on the teevee are actually still alive IRL, and also have really well-placed stylists. Above, it’s the still-powering-through it Brienne of Tarth a.k.a. …

Lindy West Talks Shrill and the Ever-Evolving Size Conversation

Body inclusivity may be increasingly and incrementally represented in retail (SAVAGE x Fenty) and publications (shout out to Allure), but it’s still woefully regressive on television and in movies, where positive visibility could spark a larger cultural shift. In a year when the Shallow Hal motherfucker won an Oscar,…
