This Noah Writer’s Lame Excuse For Using Only White Actors Is Aggressively Ignorant

This Noah Writer's Lame Excuse For Using Only White Actors Is Aggressively Ignorant

If you saw Noahyou might’ve wondered why, in a world where an immensely diverse range of species are represented —  literally every single one on the planet, if you really want to get down to it — there was absolutely no diversity shown in the cast. Well one of the writers has an answer for you, and it’s so aggressively stupid that I honestly can’t believe he let anyone write it down. More »

8 Famously Bad Celeb Hairstyles We’re Still Not Over

8 Famously Bad Celeb Hairstyles Weâre Still Not Over

Celebrities are just like us, right? Wrong. I believe this statement as much as I believe pigs can fly or I’ll marry Ryan Gosling. No matter how many times a magazine spread shows a famous person in the grocery store, I don’t buy that they deal with ALL of the same issues us normal folks do. Case in point: the hairstyle. When a regular girl gets a bad haircut, she cries in front of the mirror every time she gets a glimpse of herself.  When a celeb does something wacky with her hair, people just can’t get enough! Even if it’s horrible, people still want more more! The perfect example of this phenmomnemon is Kate Gosselin. It was seriously hard to make sense of her hairstyle on Jon and Kate Plus 8 and I imagine I was not alone in wondering how her cropped, multi-colored, multi-length bob came to be. More »

8 Celebrities Who Have Spoken Out Against Photoshop

8 Celebrities Who Have Spoken Out Against Photoshop

We can all agree that Photoshopping has gotten a little out of hand lately, right? Celebrities on magazine covers and in advertisements are very often completely unrecognizable, not only as themselves but simply as humans. And it sends the message that if even beautiful celebrities can’t live up to the impossible beauty standards society sets for us, then what hope do we have as normals? More »

Ellen Page Came Out Of The Closet Just In Time To Make A Fun Balls Joke For The MTV Movie Awards

Ellen Page Came Out Of The Closet Just In Time To Make A Fun Balls Joke For The MTV Movie Awards

Ellen Page came out as a lesbian in February with an inspirational and emotional speech that sent positive messages of acceptance and tolerance and established her as a role model for young people. That was all great, but after you’ve spent more than a month being inspiring and admirable, it’s time for the balls jokes to start. And Ellen was way overdue for it. So thankfully she decided to correct this egregious mistake by starring in a new promo for the MTV Movie Awards. More »

The Only Thing Stopping Divergent From Being Good Is That Its Heroes Are Violent Sociopaths

The Only Thing Stopping Divergent From Being Good Is That Its Heroes Are Violent Sociopaths

Look, I liked Divergent when I read it this summer. Did I love it? No. But I guess I have a soft spot for YA lit about our dystopian future. My only real grievance with the plot — besides the fact that it stole liberally from every dystopian/unique-snowflake-superhero plot before it — is the fact that our heroes are violent little monsters. Or to put it in medical terms, they’re sociopaths. More »

President Obama Talks Tattoos With Ellen, Proves He’s Not A Regular President, He’s A Cool President

President Obama Talks Tattoos With Ellen, Proves Heâs Not A Regular President, Heâs A Cool President

It was announced yesterday that President Obama would be on The Ellen DeGeneres Show via satellite today. Through the power of pre-taping, we can already watch his interview before the episode even airs on TV today. Isn’t the Internet a magical and wondrous place? It’s like predicting the future. Speaking of magical and wondrous things, let’s talk for the millionth time about Ellen’s wizardly ability to get a cool interview out of literally anyone, even the President of the United States, who’s supposed to be all serious and stuff.
