Look At All This Shade-Throwing at the Emmys

This year's Emmys was the awards show where people stopped being polite and started getting real. I have never seen more obviously disappointed, if not flat-out pissed, reactions to losing entertainment trophies than I did during last night's ceremony.

I built a rapport… » 8/25/14 3:47pm 8/25/14 3:47pm

Ariana Grande, Girl, What Are You Even Talking About?

Human cupcake Ariana Grande has demons, a predilection for serial killing, the power of Kabbalah on her side, a Moon Man trophy after last night's VMAs, no time for Katy Perry, and the showily soulful voice of someone playing Mariah Carey in a Broadway musical biopic. What she does not have, though, is the general… » 8/25/14 2:10pm 8/25/14 2:10pm

Watch Beyoncé's Marathon 16-Minute Performance of BEYONCÉ at the VMAs

Beyoncé closed tonight's VMAs with a 15-minute medley that spanned almost her entire BEYONCÉ album—she performed at least a bit of almost every song, though "Pretty Hurts" was represented only from a snippet of Harvey Keitel's dialogue from the video, "Superpower" played as an instrumental over the snippet from… » 8/25/14 12:30am 8/25/14 12:30am
