Before You Let Go, Can You Cover These Classics, Beyoncé? Before You Let Go, Can You Cover These Classics, Beyoncé?

The star of Beyoncé’s Netflix special and accompanying live album, Homecoming, is, of course, Beyoncé. The fifth star—after her Balenciaga boots, both of her knees, and her powerful creative vision—is “Before I Let Go,” a cover of a Maze and Frankie Beverly classic that is the only thing I’ve listened to for the past…

How Does Ryan Murphy Find the Time for a Thousand Shows? How Does Ryan Murphy Find the Time for a Thousand Shows?

Ryan Murphy, a man who has more ideas in his sleep, than I ever will in my waking hours, has 10 projects greenlit as part of his Netflix deal. I’m thrilled for Ryan Murphy, who is a beautiful bald genius with many good shows under his belt, but I am left wondering what device Murphy has in his possession that allows…

Wrap Dresses Are a Lie Wrap Dresses Are a Lie

Wrap dresses are back, screams a website. Yes, wear wrap dresses, they are versatile, shouts another. Wear your wrap dresses for spring, as they are back, another cries, all the way in the back, from the cheap seats. You heard it there first and here, a little later: the wrap dress, Diane von Furstenberg’s most…

I Love Thanos Not For His Body, But For His Mind I Love Thanos Not For His Body, But For His Mind

I have never successfully sat through an Avengers movie, most likely because my tolerance for superheroes and bad CGI and the lesser Chris (Pratt) is fairly low. However, all of this changed when I learned that Thanos, the star of Avengers: Infinity War, and I have a lot in common.

Tan France Wants to French-Tuck Oprah Tan France Wants to French-Tuck Oprah

If you have seen maybe half an episode of Queer Eye, you are surely familiar with stylist Tan France’s favorite styling trick: the French tuck, a pernicious sartorial move that supposedly adds length to the torso but really makes it look like the wearer has forgotten to untuck their shirt after using the restroom. You…

Who Is Still Alive in Westeros? Who Is Still Alive in Westeros?

HBO’s epic incest soap opera with the dragons and the ice zombies begins its swan song on Sunday. Many people have died, not enough people have fucked, and a handful of others are still alive, clinging to their leather garments with all their might, hoping to survive this dastardly game of thrones.

I Welcome CGI Colonel Sanders, the First True Sign of the Impending Apocalypse

I’m not sure where KFC lost its way, but I’m pretty sure that they haven’t quite found it yet.

Hot Pope Not That Hot Hot Pope Not That Hot

What I know about The Young Pope is as follows: there’s a pope; he’s young; he drinks Cherry Coke Zero; and in the beginning of the show, there is a small, naked baby that crawls atop a pile of babies and somehow, in the end, Jude Law emerges. None of this information explains this photo.

Always Tip 20 Percent You Fucking Jerks Always Tip 20 Percent You Fucking Jerks

Perhaps you have seen the “viral” “tipping trick” circulating around the internet on this fine Monday and maybe you have clicked on it, hoping for actual insight. Buckle up, sonny boy, because I’ve got a surprise for you!

No One at SNL Knew What The View Was When Tina Fey Started Parodying It No One at SNL Knew What The View Was When Tina Fey Started Parodying It

When The View premiered in 1997, the world had never really seen a show like it—radical, almost, in its simplicity. Barbara Walters’s aim in creating The View was to present an array of differing viewpoints from different women, in a casual, chatty setting that was unlike anything on television before. It wasn’t quite…

It's Clogs O'Clock It's Clogs O'Clock

The vernal equinox has come and gone and though it might still feel brisk in various pockets of this great nation, one fact is irrefutable: it’s clog time.

There Is Only One Way to Put on a Bra There Is Only One Way to Put on a Bra

It has recently come to my attention that not everyone in America puts on a brassiere in the same fashion, thanks to a cursed tweet that came close to causing a civil war amongst the staff of Jezebel.

Dirtcast Says Goodbye... For Now!

This isn’t goodbye, it’s just see you later, in a few months, or possibly... next year?

Dirtcast Loves Cardi B! Dirtcast Loves Cardi B!

Of all the celebrities we discuss at Dirtcast, no one is as beloved as Cardi B—a legend and an icon, who, once upon a time, blessed the GMG offices with her undeniable star power and shining presence.

Inside the Terrifying Labyrinth of Manhattan's Newest Mega-Luxury Mall Inside the Terrifying Labyrinth of Manhattan's Newest Mega-Luxury Mall

About an hour into my feverish Monday afternoon wandering the marble floors of the Shops at Hudson Yards, Manhattan’s latest and most controversial shopping experience, I realized that I was lost. I had been walking through the mall with purpose, looking for either a bathroom or a place to get an iced tea, but found…

My 2 Best Friends Forgot to Invite Me to This Party, Which Is Totally Fine. I'm Not Mad My 2 Best Friends Forgot to Invite Me to This Party, Which Is Totally Fine. I'm Not Mad

My heartiest congratulations to Isabelle Huppert and Julianne Moore, my two absolute best friends in the entire world, who had a very nice time at this birthday party that I happened to miss only because I was doing laundry and watching 90 Day Fiancé and also, because I didn’t know about it?

Ferrante Fever and the End of Female Friendship  Ferrante Fever and the End of Female Friendship 

During the summer of Ferrante fever, I had dinner with a friend with whom my relationship was decidedly on the rocks. The dissolution of our friendship began earlier that summer—a process that I thought was just the beginning of a break, not the actual end. We talked over a meal, catching each other up on our lives,…

Dirtcast Pays a Visit to West Beverly High and Beverly Hills 90210 Dirtcast Pays a Visit to West Beverly High and Beverly Hills 90210

On this week’s Dirtcast, we celebrate the legacy of Luke Perry by doing an entire podcast about the show that cemented his place in the pop culture lexicon as a bad boy, a heart throb, and a stone cold fox: Beverly Hills 90210.

Marshalls Will Start Selling Online Defeating the Very Purpose of Shopping at Marshalls Marshalls Will Start Selling Online Defeating the Very Purpose of Shopping at Marshalls

Marshalls, my second-favorite discount retailer chain, is following in the footsteps of T.J. Maxx, and launching an e-commerce site, perhaps in an attempt to survive the forthcoming, oft-predicted retail apocalypse. While anything that allows for the survival of my favorite retail experience is a plus in my book, I’d…
