Jeffrey Epstein’s Death Underlines A Nationwide Problem

at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan while awaiting trial. The 66-year-old registered sex offender was part of an elite social circle and spent more than a decade evading federal criminal charges for his litany of alleged crimes. Had he been convicted, he could have faced up to 45 years in prison. His death “raises serious questions that must be answered,” U.S. Attorney General William Barr said in a statement Saturday. Epstein was found unconscious following a suspected suicide attempt just last month in his jail cell at MCC, which is operated by the Justice Department’s Federal Bureau of Prisons. But he wasn’t on suicide watch when he died, according to several news outlets, leading many people to wonder how …

ShareTweetPin Dear Carla Bellucci, Not gonna lie, when I read this headline this morning, my blood ACTUALLY began to boil: Mum wants daughter, 14, to get plastic surgery because ‘ugly people get nowhere’. First let me say, I’m not a ranter. Rather, I generally aim to keep the peace and truly try to offer grace for a wide range of perspectives that fall outside of my value system… But there is a time and a place for righteous judgment—and this is it. Some may shake their heads, laugh at the absurdity of your statement, or write you off as a loony tune and move on—but I’m downright LIVID.

A Black Lady Sketch Show Is a Much-Needed Jolt to TV Comedy

The exact particulars of the apocalypse are unclear—what caused the disaster; what precise form, or forms, the fury took—and all that we, the viewers, know of what happened is that it’s referred to as The Event and that Earth’s remaining survivors are four black women. Fortunately, post-Armageddon life comes with delightful upsides."We don't have any mediocre white men getting promoted over us," one points out. "We don't have Sally Mae calling us all the time like I'm fucking her man," adds another. The scene, which jolts and spellbinds with the affecting draw of a Last Poets cipher, is just one of several fluorescent currents from HBO’s dynamic and dynamite six-episode series A Black Lady Sketch Show, which debuts tonight on …

Hey ‘Vogue’, Taylor Swift Is Not A Social Justice Icon Betches

As we all know, Taylor Swift is in the midst of a big publicity push as she gears up for the release of her new album later this month. Her latest big get is the cover of Vogue’s September issue, the biggest fashion cover of the year. Taylor has been on the cover of countless magazines, even Vogue several times before, and the photos and cover story are always predictably in line with whatever image or album she’s promoting at the time. This time, that means that the glam for the photos is low-key, and Taylor’s current shaggy bowl cut is in full force. But while I could say plenty about the looks for Taylor Swift’s newest Vogue feature, what really stood out to me was …

Did The Weeknd And Bella Hadid Break Up? Betches

UPDATE: I wanted to say that I called it, but really, our lovely tipster Tamara called it. E! News is now reporting that Bella Hadid and The Weeknd have called it quits again, after a source exclusively confirmed it. The source claimed that distance played a role in their breakup and explained, “They are in different places right now, physically and mentally.” The “physically” qualifier seems unnecessary, but ok. On the one hand, Bella is prepping for fashion week stuff and The Weeknd is working on his new album and—get this—”his upcoming acting debut”. According to the source, Bella and Abel hope to get back together at some point but for now “are focused on themselves and their projects.” I mean, …

The 29-year-old rapper, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, and the 22-year-old supermodel have been kind of off-and-on since April 2015, when they were spotted spending quality time together at Coachella. But according to a source spilling exclusively to E! News (perhaps the same one who first revealed the couple’s 2018 reconciliation): “Bella and Abel have split.” The timing was not made clear, but the impetus behind the separation was. The insider says it was all about too much “distance” between the lovers. And that isn’t just literal. The source says: “They are in different places right now, physically and mentally.
