Even though it came out six years ago, the song “American Boy” is still Estelle’s claim to fame. The peppy collaboration with Kanye West earned her a Grammy, but her later singles never quite stuck. Her fourth album, True Romance (out November 4), should change all that. It’s sultry R&B at its finest, inspired by the ambiguous, confusing period in a relationship that Estelle (last name Swaray) describes as that moment “between ... Read More

Ready to get mad? Here you go: Tw0-hundred and thirty-one anti-abortion laws have passed in the U.S. since 2011, according to data from the Guttmacher Institute. That means even with the 96 state-legislated measures that expanded abortion access in the same period of time, more than half of American women still live in places that are hostile to abortion rights. The worst offending areas to live? Those would be Texas, North Dakota, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, ... Read More

Most women have experienced some shade of this situation: Someone (usually a person who isn't particularly polite) feels the need to name the relationship between the way you look and what you've accomplished, manifesting in comments like, "You're way too pretty to be a rocket scientist" or "You're a lawyer?! Why do that when you could have been a model?"  It never feels good to be valued primarily for skin deep things you can't control when you've ... Read More
We'll give you a second to mentally process this idea before you scroll down to the image. Take it all in: you're about to see Steve Buscemi look like a babe. We're not saying there isn't a certain sexiness to him now, but Buscemi is more of an acquired taste than a generic hottie at this point. Just wait. Those piercing blue eyes are about to transcend his most unsettling roles, and remind you of a time that was much simpler: when Buscemi was just a kid leaning ... Read More

From the duo's uber-local chicken escapades to Gathy’s murderous obsession with the band Catnap, there are just too many gloriously strange Portlandia instances to count—but hey, sometimes ...

Following Gaby Hoffmann's announcement regarding the berry-banana-placenta breakfast smoothies she sucked down following the birth of her daughter, we got to wondering about all the different ways people make use of the stuff.  Turns out that—while there's little scientific rationale for consuming placenta—there's also no lack of reliable resources that say it's really, really good for you, from helping to normalize postpartum hormones to ...

Well, the public finally got Phylicia Rashad’s opinion on the Bill Cosby sexual assault allegations. Unsurprisingly—like many of his friends and family members—she is defiantly defending the Jell-O man and discrediting his accusers. Rashad, who played Cosby’s onscreen wife Clair Huxtable for 12 years, held her tongue about the heat her costar is facing until earlier this week. The actress told Showbiz 411’s Roger Friedman, “What ... Read More
