James Franco could still get an Oscar nomination despite sexual misconduct allegations

When the Los Angeles Times published a story last week, in which several women accused James Franco of sexually inappropriate behavior, a good number of Academy Awards prognosticators assumed that his chances for a best actor nomination were doomed. Franco also seemed to realize that the celebratory ride for his widely acclaimed performance in “The Disaster Artist” was going off the rails. The misconduct allegations began to surface on Twitter several days earlier, immediately following his Golden Globe Awards win for best actor in a comedy. Franco attempted damage control with two late-night show appearances, where he told Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers that the accusations were “not accurate.” But… Read More

Bella Hadid Might Have Out-Bella Hadided Herself in This Truly Unique Outfit

Bella Hadid wore this outfit yesterday and we didn’t think you could go about your Thursday without giving it a good long look. Let’s just describe all of the components first, from the top down. She is wearing tiny, red-lensed sunglasses (so Olsen Twin of her), enormous hoop earrings, a sheer spangled turtleneck with no bra, a patchwork-style Glen plaid blazer with matching miniskirt, $65 athletic socks (all of the above by Heron Preston), a seatbelt-style belt (or possibly fannypack – she is a fan of wearing them crossbody, as seen below, and perhaps she is trying a new look by wearing them backwards) and the famous Balenciaga Triple S… Read More

Prince Harry Is a Feminist, Meghan Markle Confirms (As If You Needed Another Reason to Love Him)

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be from two different sides of the pond, but they share at least one common value: They’re both feminists. Meghan confirmed as much during Thursday’s visit to Cardiff, Wales, where she and Harry meet with the crowds who waited to greet them outside Cardiff Castle. One fan, Jessica Phillips, 23, told Meghan how she admired her outspoken views on women’s rights and feminism. “He’s a feminist too, so there’s that,” Meghan told Phillips. “She was so lovely,” said Phillips. “I said it was really lovely to have a feminist in the royal family, and she said Harry is a feminist too.” Meghan has long… Read More

McKayla Maroney’s Statement Read at Larry Nassar’s Sentencing Hearing After Celebrity Outcry

A statement from Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney was read in court on day three of former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar‘s sentencing hearing for sexual abuse. Maroney, 22, was not in Michigan’s Ingham County Circuit Courtroom on Thursday, where a number of Nassar’s victims gathered to speak against the disgraced former doctor. But, on Maroney’s behalf, Assistant Attorney General Angela Povilaitis read a passionate letter written by the young woman, in which she writes directly to Nassar about the alleged abuse she endured. “I did it. I got there,” Maroney’s statement said, per MLive. “But not without a price. … I had a dream to go Olympics and things I… Read More

How #MeToo Can Probe Gray Areas With Less Backlash

Millions are talking about the comic actor Aziz Ansari’s actions during a sexual encounter with an anonymous woman who felt wronged on their date night. Her grievances were publicized by an article in the online magazine Babe. And as many have noted, the article is similar, in its subject matter and public reception, to another recent viral sensation––the fictional New Yorker story “Cat Person.” “Each describes an evening that a woman in her early 20s spends with a man in his 30s, and the tension in each comes from the disjuncture between what the woman feels and what’s going on around her,” Anna Silman wrote at The Cut. “Each describes… Read More

From needles and peels to lights and lasers, celebrities will go to great lengths to keep their skin looking flawless. And sometimes, doing so requires scaring your husband — as far as Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are concerned. Shepard posted a video on Instagram, featuring Bell laying in bed wearing a glowing, Jason-style face mask. “I came out of the bathroom tonight and found this electronic monster in my bed,” he captioned the video, tagging Bell’s esthetician, celebrity go-to Shani Darden. “Will you please tell people this is real?” He asks his wife in the video, while she giggles. “This is not a bit to scare the s–t out… Read More

Amazon launches $10-and-under collection with free shipping for all

Fancy a bag of confetti, some metallic-blue disco leggings, cheap jewelry, a T-shirt with a picture of a pineapple on it, or a no-logo ball cap?

Mariah Carey’s Date Night Outfits Involve Ponchos and Color-Coordinating with Her Boyfriend

Mariah Carey has a very simple style mantra — go glam, all the time. When she hits the slopes she’s decked out in designer snowsuits. When she takes bubble baths, she’s dripping in diamonds. And even when she wears casual date night outfits, they still serve a dose of glitz (and serve as great Valentine’s Day outfit inspo). On Tuesday she was seen grabbing dinner with her boyfriend Bryan Tanaka in Malibu wearing coordinating black and gray outfits. Tanaka was in a black tee, moto jacket and gray jeans, while Carey matched in a cozy oversize gray poncho with black tights. But this being Carey, she didn’t grab just any… Read More

Justin Timberlake Served Guests Actual Bugs During His New Album Listening Party

Justin Timberlake is bringing rustic back! At Tuesday’s New York City listening party for the pop star’s soon-to-be-released album Man of the Woods, the 36-year-old gave guests the chance to sink their teeth into a very original set of snacks one might find while in the woods — actual bugs. Alongside more traditional items like a black truffle flatbread and a sea urchin and kelp pie, guests at the event could also dine on ants covered in black garlic and rose oil or grasshoppers paired with aebleskiver, a traditional Danish pancake. But don’t worry, these weren’t just any bugs. They came courtesy of upscale Copenhagen restaurant Noma, which has been… Read More
