OK, So it's not quite Halloween, but watching this video gave me the spooktacular warm fuzzies.
Let me start out by saying, RuPaul has a web series in which he interviews celebrities while driving. This week he interviewed Elvira, a.k.a Cassandra Peterson. She is out of costume, and he is out of drag.
The world is going to explode, I swear.
In the spirit of Halloween, RuPaul and Cassandra dig in about how ... Read More

“Women need to stop spreading their legs like peanut butter or rape is going to keep on happening ’til the cows come home.”
Those were the actual words spoken by a cop when University of Connecticut student Kylie Angell reported her rape in July 2010. Though her male classmate was initially expelled, he made an appeal that allowed him back on campus a mere two weeks later. The administration comforted Angell with the logic "it's fine--you ...

The hyped up new Katy Perry Album Prism dropped today following an IHEARTRADIO concert that streamed live on Yahoo last night. The pop star's previous record had five number 1 hits. No matter what you think of Prism, you can’t deny that Katy Perry is definitely doing something right.

Former Gossip Girl actress rocks some serious latex for her new music video with The Pretty Reckless. The video feels like a long trailor for Queen of The Damned, but the song is pretty epic.

Reign, the new CW period drama, is focused around a young hot Mary Queen of Scotts. In the pilot episode, a female masturbation scene was trimmed down for ambigious reasons that may or may not have been linked to decency. The hilarity of this action was that the masturbation scene took place moments after a sex scene and moments before another. Begging the question, WTF CW?
