A 14-year-old girl plummeted 25 feet after falling off a ride at Six Flags amusement park in upstate New York. Thankfully, her injuries are minor, and as of Sunday morning she is in stable condition.
I will go to the mat for the first Pitch Perfect. Anna Kendrick is fetching and quirky; “Cups” is ideal for shower singing; and I’m pretty undiscerning in my fondness for a cappella covers. The sequel is enjoyable not so much because it is especially good, but because I am a sucker for fan service. And that is why I…
A 17-year-old Muslim girl identified as Nabra was kidnapped and beaten to death early Sunday morning in Sterling, Virginia. She was reported as missing at roughly 4 a.m. and now police believe they have found her body in a pond.

After much controversy, Megyn Kelly’s interview with InfoWars host and sweaty conspiratorial loon Alex Jones aired on Sunday evening. It has been zealously truncated to emphasize moments when Kelly puts pressure on Jones, but the end result is largely ho-hum uneventful journalism.
Barb’s mucky demise on the first season of Stranger Things was, to say the least, a real bummer. In fact, some viewers were so distressed that they hoped—and in some cases convinced themselves—that she wasn’t really dead. Death, while seemingly pretty permanent ~IRL~, can sometimes be cheated in the sci-fi and fantasy…
Two New Jersey state troopers are separately under investigation for pulling over female drivers to pressure them for phone numbers and dates. Both men purportedly eschewed suspicion by turning off their recording devices and by blatantly lying to dispatchers.

Julia Stiles will always be my hero for her perfectly tempestuous performance as Kat Stratford in 10 Things I hate About You (“Remove head from sphincter, then drive!”). But believe it or not, she has moved on with her life, and now is expecting her first child with fiancé Preston J. Cook.
Is there anything as touching as a family reunited? Melania and Barron Trump have officially joined the family patriarch in the White House, and everybody looks thrilled!
Donald Trump’s visit to the United Kingdom has been a contentious topic for months now. Most recently, London mayor Sadiq Khan has called for the trip’s cancellation due to Trump’s boorish response to the city’s recent terrorist attack. Now our kindergartner-in-chief says he isn’t going to the U.K. if its people are…
Production of the fourth season of Bachelor in Paradise has stopped due to allegations of misconduct, and if what anonymous sources say is true, said misconduct involves a producer witnessing a raunchy hookup—one described as “soft-core porn”—between contestants DeMario Jackson (recently seen on Rachel’s season of The…
Attention, lovers of the stage! The 71st Tony Awards are being held tonight, and this open thread is your place to discuss everything from Cate Blanchett’s performance in The Present to Kevin Spacey’s monologue to why Andrew Rannells is perfect.
A few weeks ago, I binge-watched—and really enjoyed!—both seasons of Master Of None. There were two paramount results. First: after years of being primarily fixated on Evan Rachel Wood and Kristen Stewart, Aziz Ansari is now the only male celebrity to whom I am attracted. Secondly, I have not stopped listening to “Say…
In a publicity stunt that seems inspired both by documentary and by Shiba Inu puppy cams, Katy Perry is live-streaming her entire weekend on YouTube.

June is Pride month for the queer community, and this weekend kicks off the annual celebrations in a wide swath of cities across the world: Washington, D.C., London, Rome, and Los Angeles are just a few.
On the heels of their break with Kathy Griffin, CNN has severed ties with Believer host Reza Aslan—and also, seemingly, for Trump-related reasons. Aslan recently referred to Donald Trump as a “piece of shit” on Twitter. Who among us, truly?
