The Apology Olympics: Celebrities’ Awful Behavior Matters Less Than How They Atone for It

The minute Gary Oldman’s insane Playboy interview appeared online, it was obvious to anyone with even the dimmest understanding of the celebrity news cycle that an apology would be forthcoming. The question was, would it be a “good apology” or a “bad apology”? Would it be Jonah Hill telling Jimmy Fallon and the world, in no uncertain terms, that “faggot” is a hurtful, unacceptable word and interrogating his own unthinking use of it? Or would it be more like Lana Del Rey compounding her false accusations that a Guardian interviewer misrepresented her by explaining to Frances Bean Cobain, via Twitter, that her words about Cobain’s father had been misrepresented in the interview? … Read More

What Were the Worst Things on the Internet in 2013?

What a wild ride 2013 was, huh? So many memes, so many funny tweets, so many things on the Internet that infuriated us and made us think very hard about each other and also ourselves — particularly, “Why don’t we just delete all of our social media accounts so that we don’t have to see all of this stupid shit day in and day out?” (The answer: because we need it.) If you’re the kind of person who has ever dreamed about writing angry blog posts, you’re also the kind of person who watched with a combination of fascination and shame while the Internet made some weird attempt to self-destruct over the past 12 months. Let’s revisit some of the most annoying moments of the year; I apologize in advance for refreshing your short-term memory. … Read More

Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel — The Media Gets It Wrong, Again

Kanye West appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, discussing the fallout from Kimmel’s already-infamous skit wherein a couple of children reenacted parts of West’s interview with the BBC’s Zane Lowe. West was his usual mix of awkwardness and volubility — the feud over the skit in question was put to bed fairly quickly, with Kimmel explaining his side of the story (including that he hadn’t actually watched the BBC interview) and suggesting his intention hadn’t been to infantilize West. The rest of the segment was devoted to West explaining exactly why the whole thing bothered him so much: “Protecting my ideas and my dreams, and that’s the reason I went so crazy.” … Read More
