Kathy Griffin: Officially stepping up to the ‘Fashion Police’ plate

Kathy Griffin Fashion Police

For the past few weeks, rumors have been going around that Kathy Griffin would be stepping in to take the lead on Fashion Police. It didn't hurt that Griffin herself had gone on the record to say that she had been asked, and also that Melissa Rivers had given the show her blessing to keep on keeping on (she also produces Fashion Police). Well, as of yesterday, it's official: Kathy has been named the new lead on Fashion Police–I do believe that MORE

Azealia Banks is a ‘Broke “Ice Princess” with Expensive Taste’

Azealia Banks

It's been a while since we talked about Azealia Banks, mostly because her musical output (fantastic though it is) kind of got eclipsed by her feuding with everyone. Thankfully, her album Broke with Expensive Taste (iTunes) has finally seen its long overdue and highly anticipated release–SHE'S BACK! THANK HEAVENS SHE'S BACK! It's like a Christmas miracle! (I'm fully aware that Xmas is still over a month away, let me have this.) Anyway, here's MORE

Kathy Griffin might really be heading to ‘Fashion Police’

Kathy Griffin and Joan Rivers / Fashion Police

It's always super awkward when a show loses a main star–for the sake of the rest of the cast and crew, the show must go on (if the ratings are good), but the absence will remain. Such is the case with Fashion Police, which must now soldier on without the presence of the legendary Joan Rivers. Thankfully, they're doing the smart thing by continuing with the blessing from Joan's daughter Melissa Rivers, and attempting to get Kathy Griffin to MORE

#AMAZING: Jinkx Monsoon covers Radiohead’s “Creep”

Jinkx Monsoon "Creep"

While the rest of the web talks about Kim Kardashian balancing a champagne flute on her ass (which, despite her protestations, doesn't require any talent. I should know: I can balance a champagne flute on my ass too, and lord knows I have zero talent), let's talk about something far less depressing: Jinkx Monsoon covered Radiohead's "Creep" on her record, The Inevitable Album, and she just released the music video–it's AMAZING. I don't mean MORE

Jared Leto–The Joker? Margot Robbie–Harley Quinn?

Jared Leto and Margot Robbie

One of the benefits of dating a massive comic book geek (and also a Star Wars geek, a Star Trek geek, and a Disney geek. The list goes on, but you know, rule of threes.) is that the two of you get to enable each others' nerdiness. Case in point: We've both agreed that Harley Quinn is our favorite comic book character of all time, to the point where we named our dog after her. And now she's finally going to make it to the big screen in the MORE

Adore Delano: “My Address is Hollywood!”

Adore Delano

You know, we're in the homestretch of 2014, and I've been so focused on Christmas and New Years (we already got Thanksgiving out of the way here in Canada–sorry 'bout it) that I almost forgot about another momentous yearly ritual: The announcement of the next season of RuPaul's Drag Race. It's coming, and it's coming soon! And just think, almost a year ago today, Adore Delano was announced as one of the competitors on the show. And now? She's MORE

Willam presents: 7.5 reasons Ariana Grande is a diva!

Willam Belli

So apparently, Willam Belli got a gig with Hollyscoop, doing what she was meant to do: Read famous people for filth. She's doing the lord's work now. Anyway, for her first segment, she's talking about some of the shady stuff Ariana Grande's allegedly been up to, and -- actually, quick aside here. Ariana Grande: Does anyone else get the feeling that she's secretly a teenage version of Alexis Mateo? Because that high-pony is higher than nature or MORE

BANKS has me ‘Beggin For Thread’ on repeat

BANKS

A few weeks ago I caught BANKS' second sold out show at The Wiltern, which also was the final night of her Goddess Tour. I caught 26-year-old Los Angeles based singer / songwriter BANKS (Jillian Rose Banks) last December at Hollywood Forever's Masonic Lodge–and although I was quite impressed by her vocals–nothing grabbed me that night. Fast forward to September–BANKS drops her debut album, Goddess (on Harvest Records), I fall completely MORE

Adore Delano & Bianca Del Rio star in Starbucks’ first LGBT ad!

Adore Delano & Bianca Del Rio

Starbucks has always been good to the gays, between standing up for our rights and employing at least one scruffy hipster twink at every location. (Seriously, there's always one, you know there is.) Well now, Starbucks has released their first LGBT targeted ad, and even better, it features Adore Delano and Bianca Del Rio from RuPaul's Drag Race! And apparently, they're having a snit over skinny lattes, which is fully understandable because MORE

Amy Poehler & Tina Fey: Retiring from Cohosting Golden Globes

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey have been handling Golden Globes cohosting duties for the past couple years now for two very good reasons: First, Neil Patrick Harris can only handle so many hosting gigs, and second, because they're hysterically funny and awesome and they single-handedly brought in the highest numbers in the show's history. So that's pretty good. Anyway, in an interview promoting her new book, Amy sat down and said that this would be MORE

Sinéad O’Connor has ‘8 Good Reasons’ (maybe 9 now)

Sinéad O'Connor

I've loved Sinéad O'Connor for years and her tenth studio album, I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss (released on Nettwerk), is definitely one of 2014's best! Catch her just released music video for "8 Good Reasons," one of the album's best tracks as Sinéad gets quite candid in the lyrics. Having been raised Catholic–I get everything that Sinéad has been so vocal about over the year–her brave performance on SNL in 1992 remains MORE

Benedict Cumberbatch set to bring ‘Doctor Strange’ to life!

Benedict Cumberbatch

If there's one thing the web loves, other than cats, crowdfunding, naked pictures of famous celebrities, rightfully damning people who leak naked pictures of famous celebrities against their will, and bacon, it's Benedict Cumberbatch. People just go apesh!t over Benedict and his smooth British accent and his perfectly angular -- but not too angular -- bone structure. Anyway, he's been cast as Doctor Strange in the new Marvel movie of the same MORE

Neil Patrick Harris is getting his own NBC variety show

Neil Patrick Harris

As was mentioned yesterday in our fall TV post, NBC has climbed up the rankings and is now fighting it out with ABC for the #2 spot among the major networks. And according to Vulture, they might be setting themselves up for the edge now by giving Neil Patrick Harris, the most Entertainer-with-a-capital-E entertainer currently working, his own variety show on the network ... NBC and ITV execs have confirmed the Harris news. Peacock MORE

Ferras knows how to “Speak In Tongues”

Ferras "Speak In Tongues"

Easily one of this year's best releases ... don't miss Ferras' new music video for the title track of his EP, Speak In Tongues. I got to see him open for Katy Perry (having just signed to her new label) a few months ago and he was fantastic. Please do pay attention when I actually manage to give a male artist the time of day ... as many of you know that I am so all about the ladies when it comes to music–but then you a have guy like Ferras pop MORE
