My Recent Media Diet, the “Please God Let Winter Be Over Soon” Edition

I’ve been keeping track of every media thing I “consume”, so here are quick reviews of some things I’ve read, seen, heard, and experienced since the beginning of the year. One of the reasons I like doing these posts is the great recommendations I get back from readers. Turns out some of you know me and my tastes pretty well by now. For instance, a reader emailed a rec for the amazing Apollo 13 podcast listed below. I never would have found that on my own…thanks, Jason (no relation). Vice. Inven...

Original Content podcast: Netflix’s ‘Velvet Buzzsaw’ is lethally dull

Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo and writer-director Dan Gilroy — who worked together on the creepy crime thriller “Nightcrawler” — have reunited for a new Netflix Original film, “Velvet Buzzsaw.” While “Nightcrawler” wasn’t perfect, it was tense and unsettling, filled with eerily beautiful shots of nighttime L.A., plus a career-best performance from Gyllenhaal. It’s hard to believe that the same team was responsible for the muddled “Buzzsaw,” a film that tries to combine art-world satire and horr...

Why Isn't Justin Bieber's Infamous Face Tattoo On The Cover Of Vogue?

In a sea of celebrities sporting minimalist ink, Justin Bieber is a maximalist. His tattoos are innumerable — over 55+, at the least — and most of them are large, and visible to the casual onlooker. But from that vast collection, the one that's gotten the most attention is about as big as the diamond on Hailey Bieber's (née Baldwin) finger, situated just above the tail of his right eyebrow, spelling out the word "grace" in small, elegant script.Although rumors first spread back in November via ...

Hailey Bieber Gets Real About Birth Control & Breakouts

It’s not like anyone told us life would be fair, but the strongest evidence of the universe playing favorites can be found in Hailey Bieber’s complexion, which isn’t just clear and healthy — it’s positively radiant.

Netflix's new hit show 'Russian Doll' started with a phone call from Amy Poehler 7 years ago

Netflix's "Russian Doll" co-creator and star Natasha Lyonne told E! News that the concept for the series began with a phone call from Amy Poehler seven years ago. "Any chance to get to mind meld with Amy is something I can't even believe is an option in this life," she said.
