For someone who's devoted years of his life to ensure children's health through decent school lunch programs, Jamie Oliver sure has an odd take when it comes to child abuse. The celebrity chef recently lamented (in jest, we hope) how sad it is that he, as a famous person, can't get away with beating his kids.

Hello! I'm your host, the internet, where the odds are never in your favor.
Pull up a chair, because it's time to have a serious discussion about your financial future. You're putting money into your 401(k) and paying down those student loans, but you'd like to be hitting more aggressive benchmarks. Try this one secret trick the savvy investment professionals don't want you to know about:
Many may dread going home for the holidays, but how many of us are actively seeking an opportunity to torment our families by bringing home precisely the sort of guy who would push all their buttons? For the right woman in Nashville, consider your prayers answered.
This fall, two television shows starring Latinas, and featuring American Latina culture, made it to primetime. In Cristela, we've seen a milestone: it's the first-ever primetime sitcom not only starring a Latina (any Latina!) but also created, written, and produced by her as well. Cristela Alonzo, a 35-year-old, Mexican-American comedian/writer from San Juan, Tejas, is blazing through barriers and has created a show based on her family, to boot. On the other hand, this fall we've also got Jane the Virgin, based on the novela Juana la Virgen, which is maybe a bit more fantastical given its origins, but also shows a Latina family (including Puerto Rican-American actor Gina Rodriguez as Jane Villanuevas) in a light that hasn't necessarily been seen, barring maybe Ugly Betty (RIP!), in a primetime, network-TV setting.
Possibly moving to Paris? Check. Giving interviews with German magazines (likely not in German)? Check. Beyoncé is so European now.
Not new news: Shonda Rhimes is winning and ABC couldn't be happier. The network's #TGIT-branded Thursday night lineup featuring Grey's Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get the Way with Murder broke a record in ratings during November sweeps.
Surely one of the strangest items in communal millennial memory is Puppy Surprise, a fuzzy pink dog who came with some random number of puppies preloaded in her plush womb. (Never mind that real-deal puppies come out slimy little ratlike creatures.)
I want to thank everyone who has submitted to Shade Court. Keep 'em coming. Whether they're instances of shade from your own life, or if you happen to observe what you believe is the throwing of shade, your citizen justice is much appreciated.
Earlier this month, Condé Nast commenced its long-anticipated move to 1 World Trade Center, whose landlord is counting on the magazine publisher to anchor the building and attract other hip companies to the fortified Financial District. The ongoing rodent problem at Vogue, however, might give some prospective tenants pause. Even Anna Wintour is worried.
Mockingjay – Part 1 hit theaters last night, and according to Variety, it's already raked in $17 million. That's the biggest Thursday night of the year, stomping Guardians of the Galaxy ($11.2 million) and Captain America: The Winter Solider ($10.2 million). But it's short of Catching Fire's $25.3 million payday.
The 15th annual Latin Grammys took place in Las Vegas Thursday, with politics at the helm: Obama had just made his immigration reform speech (which preempted the airing of the Grammys on Univision) and nearly everyone seemed to have the murdered students in México on their mind. (Calle 13's René Pérez: "Ayotzinapa somos todos!") It was a pretty historic event rife with political tensions, even for a wanky awards ceremony. Spoiler alert: boringass Enrique Iglesias won a bunch cause "Bailando" and Sex Packets or whatever it's called.
A directioner's dream becomes a directioner's nightmare in 1D's video for "Night Changes," the latest single to drop off their new album Four . Directed by Ben Winston (who has gotten no love from One Direction fans in the past), the video takes you on a serious of point-of-view dates with Harry, Zayn, Liam, Niall and Louis that all start off romantic and then go terribly awry.
When we last checked in with Arizona Sheriff and hemorrhoid cream advertisement "before" picture Joe Arpaio, he was still terrible, shackling pregnant inmates while they're giving birth, creating a pedophile- and criminal-riddled "posse" to police Maricopa County's schools, and, of course, his trademark, being as frequently racist as the laws of time and space will allow. In the service of that goal, as soon as President Barack Obama announced his plans yesterday to use executive action to enact some broad immigration reforms, Arpaio sued him, saying they are unconstitutional.
The audio on the recording is clear and crisp. The boy slurs his words slightly, but the sentiment is unmistakable.
Thursday night on The Tonight Show, New York bachata king Romeo Santos performed giant love jam "Eres Mía" with his full band and showed why he is quickly becoming America's sweetheart.
Right now, in a place you've never visited, a person you'll never know is dying. If he's dying in a particularly devastating way—and, more importantly, if he is leaving behind shareable content—it is possible that millions of strangers will mourn his or her death tomorrow. Why?
Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever is coming, and there's nothing your or I or the Humane Society can do about it. With it comes an entire soundtrack of holiday songs, curated by Lifetime, available now from iTunes. God bless.
As you know, next week Beyoncé is releasing a box set that contains two new songs, "7/11" and "Ring Off." Full-length versions of both tracks have hit the Internet just in time for the weekend. One is a drunk-in-club record and the other is seemingly a tribute to Mama Tina.
