The unbelievable shitstorm surrounding the Rolling Stone story about an alleged gang rape at the University of Virginia isn't showing the slightest signs of dying down. The numerous and serious questions about how the story was handled have all pretty much been outlined; now, God help us, it's time for adorable trolls like Ann Coulter and Chuck C.

Is West Coast love god Miguel feeling a lil' way post- D'Angelo drop ? Probably not—he's as big a fan of the hallowed soul singer as the rest of us—but it's kinda interesting timing that he would sidle up to Soundcloud and unexpectedly release three new tracks like *whistles*. Either way, this translates to a very happy December for you and I, and especially people in new relationships cause you're gonna wanna make out to all of that.

Normally, Santa Claus is decked out in an unflattering, matchy-matchy red-and-white suit that screams 1800s. The Santa of 2014 would nevuh. So Joint London reimagined St. Nick as a jolly man who spreads the joy of Christmas and also spends everythang on Alexander Wang.
The Voyager, Jenny Lewis's new album, was produced by Ryan Adams, and he's been touring a bit with her and performing her track "She's Not Me" himself, so it was only a matter of time that they'd join each other on a stage where the masses could view them together. That happened Thursday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, with Jenny still on vocals and Ryan on guitar. For those of us for whom this is our favorite song on the album, it (not to mention Jenny's amazing suit) was a welcome early Christmas gift.
On Thursday, December 18, Comedy Central aired the last-ever episode of The Colbert Report, a series that—after nearly a decade on the air—will go down as one of the finest examples of satire in the history of comedy. This is my eulogy.

Ever wondered how those glorious ballet tutus are produced? Watch with your own eyes as one "pancake"-style creation takes shape.

So when Planet Fitness showed up and started offering pizza nights and massage chairs, it all sounded great. But Planet Fitness doesn't really care about your fitness. In fact, they don't want you to come in at all.
The holidays are almost upon us—Christmas trees are twinkling in all the windows, stores are gouging prices for last minute shoppers and your neighbor had his first loud, drunk fight with his in-laws. It's definitely time to bust out the holiday-themed pet videos.
Gwyneth Paltrow may have lost out on the job of her dreams aka blogging for Yahoo because CEO Marissa Mayer didn't like that Paltrow doesn't have a college degree.
