Everyone you love wants Father John Misty, or as his birth certificate reads, Josh Tillman, to work with them. It wasn’t a burn, it was a commentary on the public’s access to famous people in a heightened technological state (and, as Tillman explains, Swift rhymes so nicely with Oculus Rift). In the age of President Trump, Father John Misty is about to deliver an album called Pure Comedy that is one you need to listen to if you're unhappy with the state of the nation.
It’s rare that I want my long morning commute to last even longer. But this morning, when the conductor announced train delays, I grinned. A couple more minutes on the platform meant a couple more minutes listening to S-Town, the latest true-crime podcast from NPR and the creators of Serial, released this morning.
On Tuesday morning, The Washington Post published a story with the most terrifying spider news I've heard in my life. A study published earlier this month by Martin Nyffeler and Klaus Birkhofer, two European biologists, calculated how much food would be eaten by the entire spider's population in a single year. The result is quite scary: Spiders consume between 400 million and 800 million tons of prey yearly.
Fast food and vegan are two phrases we wouldn't say go hand in hand. Not only do meat and cheese seem to rule the brown-bag, on-the-fly food game, but we also don't always know what is being used to frying that stuff up. And up until this moment we were pretty certain that there wasn't a vegan option to be had at many favorite chains. Vegan and craving some Taco Bell? Fuggedaboutit. But fam, we were wrong.
The same thing happens every single time I bring chocolate milk into my home. Chocolate milk is just way too thick and delicious not to down most of the bottle in one sitting. Apparently I’m not the only one who has struggled with this because tons of people on social media have shown the world how they cut out the middleman and get down to chugging their chocolate milk.
Removing women from movie posters is standard in this religious city — but it's not every day that an animated character is censored. In the ultra-orthodox Bnei Brak, outside Tel Aviv, Israel, posters for Smurfs: The Lost Village are missing one of the film's main characters, Variety reports. The female Smurfette, who's voiced by Demi Lovato, isn't on the city's posters.
A few weeks ago Press Secretary Sean Spicer implied that smoking marijuana is a gateway into harder drugs, and is causing the opioid crisis. Now, science points to further evidence that the exact opposite is true.

Here's a fun fact you might have forgotten: David Beckham will be in the upcoming reboot of King Arthur. Called King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword, the movie stars Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, and Eric Bana. This is a fact that Beckham himself confirmed on Instagram Tuesday with a rather gruesome post.
In my mind, my warm-weather look is like Jane Birkin in the South of France — high-waisted jeans, baby tees (no bra, of course), basket bags, and peep-toe wedges, with a bottle of wine in hand. Founded by Jeanne Damas, Rouje has always caught my attention, thanks to its effortless staples that remind me of everything I want to be in life.
To begin kicking off Sexual Assault Awareness Month this April, former Vice President Joe Biden is continuing his work to end sexual assault. On Tuesday, Biden tweeted out a powerful PSA calling on all of us to reframe the way we think and talk about sexual assault. "The correct word for sex without consent is rape," he wrote.
Jane The Virgin has always been a show about those warm fuzzies you only get by falling truly, madly, deeply in love, visualized in the show by literal glowing lights in someone’s heart. Jane (Gina Rodriguez) ditches her heart glow for a vagina glow after seeing her soap star dad’s impossibly six-packed new co-star, Fabian (Francisco San Martin). The choice couldn’t have been more perfect for Jane the character and Jane the CW series.
American fans of Love Actually probably don't think it's quite fair that British audiences got to see the highly anticipated mini-sequel a full two months before the U.S. premiere date. The 12-minute reprisal of the 2003 hit debuted in the U.K. on Friday, March 24, for their national Red Nose Day charity event — while stateside viewers still have to wait until May 25 to catch up with their favorite characters. In fact, the U.S. version of the short movie, Red Nose Day Actually, is getting a little extra oomph, thanks to the exclusive addition of yet another beloved character.
Migos has officially “made it.” To clarify, their mainstream notoriety pales in comparison to their mixtape glory. With the public packaging of Migos as a pop group that just so happens to make trap music, the application of boy band tropes have followed close behind. The general consensus seems to be that Quavo is the Beyoncé of Migos.
Inches from the Charging Bull statue near Wall Street in New York City, the Fearless Girl statue stands as a symbol of the need for companies to add more women to their boards of directors. This year, the Girl Scouts of New York are celebrating the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York — three years before the 19th amendment granted suffrage to women across the United States. To mark the event, the New York State Women’s Suffrage Commission and Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York have joined forces to create a new patch celebrating the history of the women’s movement and bearing the face of Susan B. Anthony.
Jennifer Williamson is mad as hell after the TSA detained her young son for what she said was over an hour at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Sunday morning. "In total, the pat-down took approximately two minutes, and was observed by the mother and two police officers who were called to mitigate the concerns of the mother.
Asian destinations like Japan and Singapore can be pricy, but Vietnam is notably budget-friendly. The food, which is just as good from a street cart as it is from a sit-down restaurant, is cheap (usually less than 10 bucks a pop) and hotels are reasonable, with luxury properties averaging around $80 per night. There’s a lot to see, too, from Ho Chi Minh City to Halong Bay, so you’ll want to give yourself plenty of time to explore the country.
