Batter up! Actress, athlete and women’s advocate Geena Davis steps up to the plate to reveal 25 things you may not know about her (she’s fluent in Swedish!) in this week’s issue of Us Weekly. Don’t forget to watch the Massachusetts-born actress, 60, on The Exorcist’s season finale Friday, December 16, at 9 p.m. ET on Fox. 1. I love anything that is the wrong size — either too big or too small. I have a 6-foot figure of a baby in my sitting room and I have a real deck of cards around 3/8 … read more
Over the weekend, the bad news just sort of snowballed into a delirious mess of awfulness. Everything was about Donald Trump, Russian hacking, the CIA versus the FBI, and stupidity. The basic gist – and it’s pissing me off that everyone is now acting like this is BRAND NEW INFORMATION – is that Russia hacked the sh-t out John Podesta and the DNC and then shuffled all of the info to Wikileaks in an attempt to sway the American election. The actual brand new information was that the CIA claims … read more
Johnny Depp’s passive-aggressive sniping at his ex-wife would be a lot funnier if we didn’t have evidence that he’s a gaslighting, drunk, abusive jackass. You know what I mean? It would be funny because it’s SO obvious. It’s sort of ridiculous how Depp and his people are still leaking to TMZ and trying to make Amber Heard look bad. They don’t realize that they’re only making themselves look terrible. So, earlier this week, TMZ got some “sources” to talk about how Amber was so, … read more
Will we ever find someone else like Adele? Judging by her latest world tour, it seems entirely unlikely. Nearly a year ago, Adele said “Hello” to her first audience in Belfast to launch her Western European and North American tour. In that show alone, the 28-year-old multi-Grammy winner discussed her endless bowel movements with fans and helped a couple get engaged—and that was just one of 112 performances to come. In the months to follow, the new mom dazzled her audiences with equal parts song … read more
Adele has done many things during her current world tour — kissed a dog, helped a fan propose, offered to be a surrogate for a gay couple — but her latest show got her all shaken up.
Recently, while performing at Mexico City’s Palacio de los Deportes to a crowd of 25,000 people, Adele received quite a shock when a bat flew into the venue mid-performance, interrupting her set. Though the “Hello” singer is normally a pro at handling technical difficulties, seeing a wild animal at her show … read more
Riddle me this, riddle me that, who’s afraid of the big, black bat?
That would be Adele.
The British superstar received quite the fright during a recent performance at Mexico City’s Palacio de los Deportes, which seats some 25,000 people: A bat flew in mid-show.
“There’s a bat!” she yelled onstage, flapping her arms, as seen in a video posted on Twitter by H Ramos (@Hect).
“There’s a bat there and it landed by your head!” she continued, pointing at a spot in the audience. “It landed right by your … read more
I’m so tired that I just realized, oh right, it’s Wednesday and this is when the weekly magazines comes out. People Magazine put Donald Trump on their cover – they probably had two covers mocked up, one for Hillary and one for Trump. You can read the People coverage here –People Mag had a reporter “embedded” with the campaign in the final days, even though one of their reporters had been sexually assaulted and harassed by Trump. Which brings me to one thing that people haven’t been … read more
Westworld’s sixth episode, which shall henceforth be known as “The Episode That Was Good,” begins with Maeve inexplicably changing out of her amazing pajamas and getting dressed and going to work. Not the choice I would make, but you do you, Maeve. Maeve is on a mission to figure out nothing less than the entire meaning of her life. Somebody gets shot to death behind her and she doesn’t give a fuck. The piano plays itself (imagine!) and Maeve DGAF. Clementine stumbles down the stairs with … read more
Tim Tebow has always been open about wanting to find the right woman to marry and wanting to have children, but now that his father is ailing, the baseball player feels an urgency. Tebow’s father was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. “Baseball takes a lot of time,” he told People, “and it’s not like I don’t have several other full-time jobs. But I’m definitely ready for a relationship and I’m looking forward to it. I can’t wait for that, and I can’t wait to have … read more
Mel Gibson and Stephen Colbert were feeling nostalgic Tuesday night.
Gibson stopped by The Late Show, and he and Colbert took a trip down memory lane during a segment called “Big Questions With Even Bigger Stars.” Lying down on a blanket staring at “stars,” Gibson and Colbert discussed their names, some astrology and even some of Gibson’s life choices.
“Hey, Mel Mels,” Colbert asked. “When you look back on your life, do you think you’ll have any regrets?”
Mulling his answer, Gibson responded, “No, … read more
Grab your cutest cowboy booties, curl your bangs, mount the nearest robot, and just pretend it makes sense that basically every guest in Westworld is a guy or a guy’s wife because women don’t have base desires, because we’re halfway through Westworld’s first season! The fifth episode begins with what’s likely a skip back in time, because Anthony Hopkins is having a chat with the robot he decommissioned all the way back in episode one. They’re talking about “the saddest story ever”: according … read more
Why is my dad mad?
Is he constantly playing with online electoral map models and muttering, “It can’t go to the House, it can’t go the House,” under his breath?
Yeah, and he keeps carving “270” into his mashed potatoes.
Well, he’s probably upset about the upstart presidential campaign of Evan McMullin.
McMullin. I have never heard of him. But now I’m hungry.
Now that I think about it, perhaps McMullin is benefiting from all-day-breakfast-menu name recognition. It would explain … read more
Michael Fitzgerald will vote in a presidential election for the first time ever this November. He loves politics; you don’t become treasurer of Yale College Republicans during your freshman year unless conservative fiscal policy sets your heart aflutter. The 19-year-old obsessed over the last election when he was still in high school. But 2016 has been something of a letdown, if by “letdown” you mean something akin to watching a plant you lovingly tended for eight years burst into flames and morph, … read more
This ^^ is a current photo of People Magazine journalist Natasha Stoynoff. Stoynoff is the woman who told her story last week, a story about being sexually assaulted, harassed and forcibly kissed by Donald Trump back in 2005. Stoynoff was at Mar-a-Lago in a professional capacity, to cover Trump’s wedding to Melania. After Stoyoff told her story, Donald Trump told his supporters to go to Stoynoff’s Facebook and “look at her” and then said “I don’t think so.” As in, Trump said she wasn’t … read more
I was scared. Everybody I knew was scared. Perfect strangers told me to wear a bulletproof vest. Friends who were attending told me their hearts were racing and they couldn’t sleep. Judgment was at hand. The seals would open. The earth would split apart and swallow up our folly. This was it. Peals of thunder. The pale horse.
In that moment, it made sense. Just after midnight on July 5, a black man named Alton Sterling who was selling CDs outside a convenience store in Baton Rouge was thrown against … read more
