The Time 100 was released and has already become a work of found poetry! Sarah Jessica Parker is coming back to HBO with a new comedy called Divorce, which the network just gave a series order! Hyperbole aside, the real breaking news is that the North River Lobster Boat is coming back to New York this summer—May 1st, specifically—with 45-minute long Hudson River cruises, replete with booze and Maine lobster rolls, AND secondly that Ben & Jerry’s is releasing the Brrr-ito, a giant ice-cream stuffed wafer of goodness, notably on 4/20. … Read More

In case you’d like a soundtrack for the incoming deluge of links, Haim’s collabo with Calvin Harris is the perfect, fast-paced electro-anthem to help you feel a sense of deliberateness as you meander through this web of distraction. The song would also, of course, be great to dance to, but this simply isn’t the place for that, partially because: … Read More

Once Beyoncé herself puts the actual dictionary definition of a term right in the middle of a hit single, you’d think people would stop being so confused over what that term means. But nope, Patron Saint of YA Adaptations Shailene Woodley felt the need to simultaneously say she’s not a feminist and demonstrate that she’s not 100% clear on what a feminist even is. She’s hardly the first to do so, but ironically, the idea of women’s equality she claims not to subscribe to is what makes her box office success possible in the first place. Here’s a list of other self-identified non-feminists who wouldn’t be where they are today without what, as “***Flawless” tells us, is simply the belief “in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes.” Read ’em and weep. … Read More
I saw Matilda: The Musical on Broadway recently, and it was overwhelming. The set and songs were captivating, of course, but what truly had me floored was the titanic force of the child actors — many of whom were navigating their very first decade of life. They sang with more passion than some trained adults, and danced with that particular type of high-octane energy only available to schoolchildren on a sugar rush. It was impossible not to feel like the audience was being treated to a sneak preview of tomorrow’s superstars. … Read More
People don’t ask me often why I’m not on the Jennifer Lawrence bandwagon. Given my hyperbolic instinct to use “hate” carelessly, one friend of mine explained to an acquaintance that I “just like to hate things.” Being someone who writes online, of course, means that nonsensically disliking elements of pop culture is a given — providing a contrarian take on what is deemed “too popular” is, after all, a pretty clever click-baiting tactic. (Go ahead and count how many writers, either in headlines or just on Twitter, have timed their thoughts on how overrated Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is to the release of a sure-to-be-polarizing big-budget adaptation of the classic novel.) So let me assure you that what I’m about to say isn’t a cheap way to troll an audience. But I’m afraid I just don’t care for Jennifer Lawrence. … Read More
Albert Brooks, the famous post-modern ’70s comedian, SNL alum and frequent guest voice for The Simpsons said “if we had 3 million exhibitionists and only one voyeur, nobody could make any money.” Isn’t that the truth.

1. Apparently Aretha Franklin was the first guest to arrive at Sarah Jessica Parker’s $40,000-a-head Barack Obama fundraising dinner last night, and decided to leave after only 20 minutes. Gawker is calling it “a big diva move,” but given the fact that she’s 70 years old, maybe she was just tired.
2. Tony-nominated… Read More
