Thanksgiving, by nature, is a holiday that tests, that challenges. Whether it's a guaranteed hit recipe, a simple yet flawless kitchen gadget, an inspiring playlist consisting of Aaron Copland and Heart's radio hits, or a very specific and pleasant strain of marijuana, we all have our standbys that get us through the day. What are yours?
Authorities released video this afternoon of a police officer fatally shooting 12-year-old Tamir Rice this weekend in a Cleveland park . In the video, you can see police opening fire at Rice, who was carrying an airsoft gun, within two seconds of arriving on the scene.
As the newly mononymous Kendall transforms her reality-TV stardom into a modeling career, she is racking up plum placements by the pound: just after the announcement that she's the new face of Estee Lauder , she picks up her next cover in the form of an avant-garde look at British emerging culture mag Dazed & Confused.
Pitbull dropped his eighth album, Globalization, on Tuesday, and continued his jolly romp across the universe as the most charismatic man alive . After his super-enthusiastic turn as American Music Awards host (second time!) and guesting on The View (also second time!), he hit Jimmy Kimmel for a pair of rousing-ass performances of Globalization's singles, and it was the greatest show on earth.
Surprise surprise: the guest hosts replacing Craig Ferguson after he leaves The Late Late Show in December and before new host James Corden joins in March have been announced, and as of right now, they are all men.
The United States prides itself on being a country of animal lovers. But when it comes to the ethical treatment of lab animals, few countries perform worse. Here's how the U.S. has fallen out of step with the rest of the world, and why many of its practices are considered unscientific and inhumane.
Without Andrea Constand, none of this happens. Bill Cosby is still America's No. 1 dad, still beloved for giving us the Huxtables and Fat Albert, still embraced in too many corners of the country for telling young black men to pull up their pants, still selling out arena after arena.
On Tuesday we told you about Eckerd College President Donald Eastman's rather regrettable letter to the student body , which suggested that sexual harassment and sexual assault might be avoided if the students could simply cut back on their drinking and casual sexing. The editors of the Current, the campus newspaper, have responded with a letter of their own, giving Eastman the politest, most respectful, most devastating dressing-down you've ever seen.
In the wake of the grand jury decision not to charge Officer Darren Wilson in the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown, activists are encouraging black consumers to turn to economic activism and boycott the busiest shopping day of the year.
Here is a truth most universal: Nothing makes sex more appealing than a situation where it's totally inconvenient, making Thanksgiving the ideal time for furtive and risky sexcapades. But with family obligations and creaky beds, what's a person to do? Here's our guide to sneaking around on Turkey Day.
My dream for more Viola Davis-related things is happening. Davis is producing another law-related show that may also involve getting away with murder. It's called Conviction and it's based on Detroit prosecutor Kym Worthy .http://jezebel.com/5938441/this-i...
Tomorrow you'll gather around the Thanksgiving table with your family—those precious few souls that walk this cold Earth draped in the same flesh and blood that coat your weary bones. Invariably, they will say something that makes you want to murder them or, at the very least, ruin dinner in the process of setting them straight.
After much anticipation and many, many hints, we've finally got some solid details on Melissa McCarthy's long-promised plus-size clothing line. Hell yes.
Peak morning television has been achieved. I repeat: peak morning television has been achieved. Cancel all of the shows and send all of the perky people home to annoy the shit out of their friends and families.
For years, universities in the Czech Republic have held beauty pageants for their female students. The women who compete tend to look like beauty contestants anywhere: slim, young, able-bodied, large of hair, heavily made up, clad alternatively in evening gowns and bathing suits. The events have grown controversial in recent years for, um, obvious reasons, but this year, Prague's University of Economics might have finally taken it too far: the school teamed up with a local tabloid to host a twerking contest during the pageant, where uncomfortable-looking women twerked in booty shorts and bikini tops for the chance to win internships at unnamed large companies. All together now: Yeeesh.
We all know that Lorde and Taylor Swift's relationship started , in Lorde's words, over "thick-ass milkshakes" at Shake Shack. But as Lorde explained to Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night, it developed further at a Grammy party after some rando confused Lorde for Taylor Swift's manager. The two women went along with it, and, "and all of a sudden I was Taylor Swift's manager, this tiny, kind of goth-y, hunched, [makes dinosaur noise]..." Lorde explained. Lorde: the most self-aware maybe 18-year-old in the world.
When allegations against Jian Ghomeshi first surfaced, the radio host defended himself by pointing out that none of his "jilted" exes who were now claiming he'd abused them had gone to police at the time. Well, throw that shit out of the window: he's just been charged with sexual assault and Wednesday morning, he surrendered to police.
Supreme Court Justice and living national treasure Ruth Bader Ginsburg is currently in the hospital after receiving a stent in one of her coronary arteries last night. But before you burst into tears (like I did): the heart procedure is relatively routine, and the Notorious RBG will likely be out of the hospital in 48 hours.
Because the holiday season wasn't already horrible enough, Officer Darren Wilson has announced that he and his wife are expecting a child. The only way this nightmare week can be saved now is if Wilson is spirited into a federal jail thanks to a Thanksgiving miracle for the ages.
After a brief period of resistance, it seems like Maria Shriver has finally come to accept her son Patrick Schwarzenegger's new girlfriend Miley Cyrus—not because he seems happy or she treats him nicely, but because she's nothing like Every Mother's Nightmare (?) Taylor Swift.
