Today, Attorney Michael Carvin will argue before the Supreme Court that the Affordable Care Act—or "Obamacare" if you're so inclined—is unconstitutional on the grounds that complying with it causes his clients undue hardship. If he wins, millions will lose their insurance and President Obama's most sizable domestic achievement to date will be effectively kneecapped. The reasons he thinks he'll win may... confuse you.
The exuberant, hyper-melodic, anything-goes Virginia rapper D.R.A.M. released "Cha Cha" last year, just as the days were starting to turn colder, and the track—with its perfect lights-on-a-patio Latin dance sample and the Super Mario prize-noises punctuating the easy clap of the beat—was a shot of gorgeous, warm, lazy, silly summer love. That vibe is even more necessary right now, and D.R.A.M.'s new video for "Cha Cha" is pure joy, four minutes of stunting with all the fun and none of the posture. With the help of some tite animation, D.R.A.M. brings a pillow-fight vibe to the club, the parking lot, a random family's dinner—and pulls everyone in (kids included) for a confetti jam at the end.
Another show featuring two black leads is headed to pilot. My longtime friend and confirmed vampire Nia Long has been cast alongside Mike Epps in a TV adaptation of Uncle Buck.
You know when a new colloquialism comes to market and you're like, YES, that's it, that's just the modification I've been looking for and now I'm going to use the shit out of it until it's painfully threadbare? That's kind of what's going on right now with 'Fleek.'
Like a drum-playing, moderately-tattooed set of Russian nesting dolls, here's Justin Bieber enacting a parody of the SNL parody of his Calvin Klein ad.
Oprah has been in Chicago since there were "hoes and rats on the street"—but now it's time to mosey on to greener, if sunnier, pastures, like West Hollywood, where Harpo studios are destined for relocation by the end of this year as part of a company restructuring.•Some people give up candy for Lent. is giving up the Twitter.

In today's Tweet Beat, Lindsay Lohan brings literacy to the people of Dubai, Ariana Grande tries to stir up drama between St. Paul and Chicago, and Jaden Smith gives really good advice.
Construction workers renovating a French supermarket in January were probably a little bit surprised (possibly pleasantly so?) when they dug into the store's foundation and found not gold or oil, but hundreds of neatly placed skeletons rotting away beneath the ground in a mass grave.

Are you interested in sustainable food and fashion? Do you have a deep and unclouded desire to make your wedding more special than anyone else's? Are you trying to unironically get away with mason jar candles at your reception even though they were over in 2012? Yes? Then consider growing your own dress out of fungus and fermented "material," which looks (and probably smells) like delicious Kombucha.
In order for the plague to come back full force and kill all of us with festering boils, three things are needed: A carrier, a transmitter and a pathogen. It may be too early to panic, but a new study reveals that New York City has two of the three components necessary to make a really good Criminal Minds episode.
The University of Oregon is being sued by a student who claims that after she was raped by three basketball players, the school tailored and delayed their discipline so the men could play in the NCAA tournament. Those allegations alone sound horrible (Oregon denies them), but they've taken a disturbing twist: the university gave to its lawyers the student's counseling records from when she sought help on campus.
This week's episode of Girls was a marvel, offering a perfect snapshot of the horror of the rebound date, and more importantly, reviving the age-old question of whether you can ever really be "friends" with an ex. On the latter quandary, I say the jury is still out.
Last month, the FBI filed a formal complaint against Conrad Hilton, brother of Paris (and Nikki, although who cares about her?) and nephew of Kim and Kyle Richards, after Hilton went on a ten-hour rage spree on a long flight he took in 2014, complete with balled fists and a cry of "I will fucking own anyone on this flight; they are fucking peasants!" And since today is the little scamp's 21st, GQ has conducted an important interview with another passenger on the flight, who described in detail the horrors visited upon the "proletariat" by the comely heir who was inexplicably sitting in business class with the peasants and not riding in his own private jet.
The ongoing campaign to combat manspreading and other offenses isn't the MTA's first attempt to encourage polite behavior on public transit. Did you know that back in the early 60s, the subways were once plastered with admonitions from "Etti-Cat"?
Community returns for its sixth season on March 17th at its new home on Yahoo!, which is exciting, but—as Ben Chang points out—are any of you white people noticing what's happening to the group? Troy's gone, Shirley's gone and—wait, who is this white Shirley who keeps showing up?
Lisa De Pasquale is a conservative writer of both fiction and punditry who, to date, was the longest-serving head of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). She organized the behemoth conference from 2006 to 2011. During her time behind the scenes, she's seen and done things that read less like a job and more like a Fox News fever dream.
