Here is a video of Jimmy Fallon singing "Barbara Ann" with five different (creepy) waxwork copies of himself borrowed from Madame Tussauds. It's unnerving as hell but also Jimmy Fallon WOULD sing "Barbara Ann" with five different waxwork copies of himself if they suddenly sprang to life in his dressing room. That seems like something he'd probably just roll with.
The Department of Justice released a report on Thursday slamming the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for throwing "sex parties" with sex workers hired by Colombian drug cartels. Sounds like a real conflict of interest.
In the summer of 2012, shortly after she filed divorce papers to dissolve her marriage to Tom Cruise, the actress Katie Holmes moved into a Manhattan apartment building called the Chelsea Mercantile. The prewar building has 354 units, a private garage, and, on the street level, a Whole Foods Market, where Holmes began appearing with her and Cruise’s then-six-year-old daughter, Suri.

Yesterday, Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed SB 101 into law, a "religious freedom" bill that will allow business owners in the state to discriminate against whoever they please. A dozen other states are considering similar measures, but in the meantime, let's consider how we got here: the Supreme Court's terrible Hobby Lobby ruling.
One fashion week ends, another begins—what editors know as "fashion month" is actually a misnomer reserved for Western cities (New York, London, Paris, Milan)—but include the entire world and it's essentially fashion year. With the conclusion of fashion weeks in Tokyo and Mumbai, New Delhi's India Fashion Week began (perhaps annoyingly titled Amazon India Fashion week, as Amazon.in is a sponsor).
If you need an idea for engagement photos and your body is impossibly buff and limber, maybe try this. A CrossFit enthusiast couple from Ocoee, Florida had these photos taken to celebrate their engagement.
I purchased pairs on pairs on pairs of Victoria's Secret panties when I was young and knew nothing about my body or comfort.

This month's NYLON cover girl, actress Shailene Woodley told the mag she considers bugs the future of food. "I've eaten ants and that was great," she said. "And June bugs, that was great. I think the future of food is in insects, so we'll see what happens." Me and Woodley, well we have different views on the apocalypse (the era where bug eating will be totally normal). See, I believe if we come to a time where bugs are the only food around to consume then it's a wrap for me in general and no thank you. And Woodley, Woodley believes in bugs.
