Lindy West Talks Shrill and the Ever-Evolving Size Conversation

Body inclusivity may be increasingly and incrementally represented in retail (SAVAGE x Fenty) and publications (shout out to Allure), but it’s still woefully regressive on television and in movies, where positive visibility could spark a larger cultural shift. In a year when the Shallow Hal motherfucker won an Oscar,…

Shuga Cain Is Self-Assured and Sparkling Shuga Cain Is Self-Assured and Sparkling

Shuga Cain is a RuPaul’s Drag Race anomaly: at 40, she’s the oldest contestant on Season 11, but she’s only been doing drag for two years, having ditched her corporate job in a blaze of glory to immerse herself full time in the nightlife of wigs, contouring, and sequins. In Drag Race’s past, queens over 35 (or even…

The 'Doing It For the Money' Defense Only Protects Powerful Men The 'Doing It For the Money' Defense Only Protects Powerful Men

Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage, two women who live with R. Kelly, were interviewed by Gayle King in the second half of King’s unsettling sit-down with the pop star about the decades of sexual abuse allegations against him. The women, 21 and 23 respectively, are believed by their families to have been sequestered in…

Winter Is Here and Jon and Daenerys Are Def Still Fucking

New Thrones trailer, my horny Thrones heads! This one outright proves that the only thing that can melt the cold murderous hands of the White Walkers is the smoking hot heat generated in the bed of Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, a.k.a. brothers from another mother, a.k.a. incest in another way but who cares about…

The World Is Wearing Ugly Dad Sneakers Because One Designer Hates Looking at Small Feet The World Is Wearing Ugly Dad Sneakers Because One Designer Hates Looking at Small Feet

If you have wondered why everyone is trudging around in orthopedic father shoes that look like flashier Rockports, you may blame Demna Gvasalia for that. The influential Balenciaga/Vetements designer and possible troll popularized the style with his chonky Triple S, above, and knockoffs continue apace, reproducing…

Introducing the Future of Beauty: Fangs Introducing the Future of Beauty: Fangs

If an obsessively involved, zillion-dollar beauty routine was self-care for the first half of Trump’s first term, drawing fangs and mustaches on your face to look intimidating but friendly is the self-care for the second. Why pretend everything is fine when it is not? Why cover up your internal anxieties with a glossy…

Oh Wow, It's Every Gown and Tux On the Oscars Red Carpet! Oh Wow, It's Every Gown and Tux On the Oscars Red Carpet!

It’s the second-most exciting red carpet of the year, after the Met extravaganze: The night when a dazzling coterie of extreme A-Listers walk the plank of glory or defeat; into the room that will elevate their careers (and salaries) for the rest of time (or at least a respectable couple of years), or the room that…

Karl Lagerfeld died Tuesday in Paris at the age of 85, the New York Times reports. The German fashion designer had been hospitalized in January for undisclosed health issues, and the cause of death has not been disclosed.

'This Movie Is a Piece of Garbage': Bohemian Rhapsody Explained

In just ten days, we’ll be basking in yet another Oscars ceremony, this one with no host, fewer awards, and probably an exponential increase in disaster. To help you prepare for the schadenfreude (revisit last year’s explanations for clarity on this concept), we’ve enlisted our beloved former Jezebel Managing Editor,…

Meghan Markle Asked Her Dad to Stop Spooning Shit to Tabloids, Which He Then Spooned to Tabloids Meghan Markle Asked Her Dad to Stop Spooning Shit to Tabloids, Which He Then Spooned to Tabloids

Meghan Markle’s dad is, clearly, a gross opportunist for selling his every tidbit about his apparently estranged daughter to the ‘bloids. Really driving home just how basura this whole thing is, though, is that his daughter wrote him a heartfelt letter last August begging him to stop; not only did he continue, he…

The Grammys Should Have Let Drake Speak The Grammys Should Have Let Drake Speak

After Drake won the award for Best Rap Song, for “God’s Plan,” the rapper made a surprise appearance to accept it. His presence was somewhat of a shock, considering he’d declined an invitation to perform and historically hasn’t been a Grammys. So when he began speaking, it was clear that he was taking his win with a…

All the Furs, Sequins, and Chic Louche On the 61st Grammys Red Carpet All the Furs, Sequins, and Chic Louche On the 61st Grammys Red Carpet

The Grammys are basically toast, between producers consistently pissing off major artists and sniveling RIAA turtle Neil Portnow consistently blaming other people for its own trash institutional problems. But you know what? It’s awards season, and we wanna look at fashion, so fuck it. Let’s see what the stars’…
