Here we are, on what some call “music’s biggest night,” settling in and ready to watch host James Corden sing a bunch of songs while other, arguably better singers get awards and also sing songs and dance and stuff.

Welcome to Barf Bag, a daily politics roundup to help you sort through the chaotic Trumpian news cycle.
The New York Times just ratcheted up flu season panique with this piece detailing how this year’s flu season is on track to be worse than 2009's swine flu epidemic.

In this soft and quietly sweet video for “Joanne,” Lady Gaga gives us the best version of herself.
Casey Affleck, alleged sexual harasser and general fucking creep, has withdrawn from the upcoming Academy Awards ceremony because he did not want to become a “distraction,” which is secret Boston dirtbag code for “a man who reportedly disrespects women, allegedly abuses them, and yet still gets to keep his day job.”
On Wednesday, Larry Nassar was sentenced to up to 175 years in prison after a grueling trial during which more than 150 women testified about the sexual abuse they’d endured at his hands. Two-time Olympian Aly Raisman’s testimony was some of the most devastating—and was an impressive display of will in the face of her…
Guo Pei, the designer responsible for Rihanna’s 2015 Met Ball vision in jaune, today showed a collection of dizzying couture confections in blue and gold. These garments are all handcrafted! It’s Haute Couture Week! This woman did not phone it in!
Until today, what I knew about This Is Us could fit on the head of a pin: Milo Ventimiglia is a man named Jack(?) who could stand to wash his hair; Mandy Moore is his wife; Jack is dead; the show makes people cry and cry and cry. Now I know this: the reason that Jack died is because of a fucking Crock Pot.
Big Little Lies 2: Keep Lying is happening, with your best friends Nicole, Reese, Shailene, Zoe, Alexander, and Laura returning. But in case all that star power wasn’t enough, they had to go ahead and add Meryl Streep into the mix.
Haute Couture Fashion Week—it’s happening! Most of it—save for Herr Lagerfeld’s clothes for a merry widow and Alexandre Vauthier’s Grace Jones homage—is boring. Turn your attention, please, to Jean Paul Gaulthier, who got Coco Rocha BACK on the runway!!, and showed garments for the glamorous space queen—a grown-up…
For the most part, cars change hands as their owners decide not to keep them anymore. This can happen for good reasons, bad reasons or just natural reasons. Did you sell a car once and then come across it again with its new owner? What was that like?
Rude people are everywhere: at the coffee shops, the grocery stores, in the prisons and jails—and at car meets. They stand around, acting like they are clever, passing judgment on everyone, when really the only thing they’re doing is pissing you off and being dumb.

Apple packed a bunch of cool new features into the new iOS 11 update coming later this year, but it’s possible none of those are cooler than a simple screen capturing tool that makes it easier than ever to record videos of your iPhone in use.
Apple just kicked off its annual developer conference with a customary jumbo keynote, where it announced the next major updates for iOS and macOS. The company also launched a ton of new hardware, including upgraded MacBooks and a brand new smart speaker powered by Siri.
I had totally forgotten about this band and this song that was one of its hits and which had a video designed for it that was a lot like Van Halen’s “Right Now,” except without the pothead-friendliness that more than made up for the latter’s arguably embarrassing earnestness, until I was wandering aimlessly in a drug…
Now there’s Hamilton Nolan, for instance.
I wasn’t planning to poke his boner. But as I sat beside my boyfriend, watching Blood Simple, I could feel what was coming. Frances McDormand was on screen, scantily clad.
