 I love a good dis battles. It's a spectacle of both ribaldry and talent that is sweeter than the normal tabloid infused Pitt-Jole-Aniston love triangle, because the participants of the rivalry actually partake in the dissin' and the audience gets to cheer and boo from the internet sidelines. Plus, we get to invest in a love or hate fan relationship that, if lucky, can last us a life time. I still draw lines when it comes to MC Lyte and Antoinette , and that battle happened when I was a wee three-year old. Read More

The new Jezebel lay-out confuses me. I'm not sure where to look or why there's a huge picture in the middle of my screen and not a bunch of little pictures with funny headlines. Why, Jezebel, why? Luckily, my friend Alex sent me this handy-dandy link that lets you view Jezebel in its old, tried and true, lay out. Use it or lose it, bust-readers.  ca.jezebel. Read More
