The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

The big music video from this past week, the one that seemed custom-designed to drive conversation, was Ariana Grande's "break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored." It sucks. The video is an overly literal reading of the song's lyrics, told with no real visual style, and building up to a fake-shock moment that … More »

You May Not See Me On TV, But Parkland Is My Story, Too.

My name is Kyrah Simon. I’m a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, and lost a childhood friend, Helena Ramsay, in the shooting that occurred last year. I always have to introduce myself that way so people don’t invalidate my story. Every interview is a reiteration of who I am, why I even matter, and a neat sound bite so self-proclaimed liberals can cheer on their “Parkland hero.”At first, I thought it was worth it. I was getting my voice out there, being outspoken, be...

Pete Davidson Covered His Ariana Grande Tattoo — & It Says A Lot

Since calling off their engagement last October, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have started the long, painful process of removing the 16 tattoos they inked in each other's honor.

Tyra Banks Just Told Ariana Grande What To Do With Her Ponytail

The hands-down best episodes of America's Next Top Model were the makeover episodes. This is not up for debate. This is a fact.They were usually the most dramatic of the season, with host Tyra Banks telling girls who had hair down to their waist that to make it in the fashion industry, they'd have to, idk, shave their entire head. Hysteria often ensued, but Banks' vision was almost always right, with the girls transformed into supermodels over the course of an hour.For fans of ANTM (like me), ...

Let's Talk About Sex, Baby: Every Trick You Need To Seduce Someone With A Playlist

A woman goes home with a man. She looks around his bachelor pad, taking in his wall art: Klimt, Lichtenstein, and an Arcade Fire concert poster — clearly, he contains multitudes. While she's making the rounds of his black-leathered pad, he slips over to his record player (no matter what year it is, he has a record player, because he is “smooth”) and drops that needle. The dulcet sounds of Lana Del Rey’s “Cherry” start to pipe through the apartment. Or maybe it's Chet Baker’s “I Fall In Love Too...
