The Talk discusses #FreeBritney + more



-The controversy that no one saw coming is getting louder. After the #FreeBritney campaign gained traction online, the story has now moved to the daytime cycle.

-This week on The Talk singer/rapper Eve wore a t-shirt with the campaign name and the ladies on the panel discussed the allegations that Britney is currently held at a psychiatric facility involuntarily. Sharon Osbourne noted that Britney has been working pretty much all her life and her career provides the livelihoods of many people and the complications that could arise from that saying: "when there's money involved nothing would surprise me".

-In the end the panel agreed that the campaign is at least bringing awareness to the issue of Britney's conservatorship so if something shady is going on behind the scenes people are more likely to take notice and pay attention now.

The reviews for Fifty Shades author E.L. James’ new book ‘The Mister’ are brutal



To the surprise of no one, Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James and her new book The Mister are garnering some pretty bad reviews.

The Mister tells the story of a romance between wealthy, callous British aristocrat Maxim Trevelyan (who is also a DJ, photographer and a model) and his Albanian housecleaner Alessia Demachi, a migrant who was brought to England illegally by traffickers.

Despite that description, the author calls her new novel “a Cinderella story for the 21st century.” Well, okay then.

Here are some choice review highlights:

“James retains her capacity to write sex scenes that last thousands of words in a row, but not without including turns of phrase that make you, as the reader, want to bleach your own brain. Alessia’s moan, Maxim notes, ‘is soft and husky as her head falls into the palm of my hand. It’s music to my dick.’ Later, ‘a shocked giggle bubbles up from her happy place.’” — The Atlantic

“Some people are not equipped to write stories of social realism that delves into topics like domestic abuse and sex trafficking. E.L. James is to these topics what Hannibal Lecter is to vegan cookery.” — Pajiba

“You will laugh a lot during this book, and not in a good way.” — iNews

Charlize Theron Opens Up About Her Eldest Daughter's Gender Identity




  • During an interview with the Daily Mail, Charlize confirmed her eldest child Jackson, 7, is being raised as a girl after she informed her mother at three years old that she was not a boy. She also has daughter August, 2.

  • Charlize, who has been criticized for allowing Jackson to wear dresses and skirts, said in part: "Exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide. My job as a parent is to celebrate them and to love them and to make sure that they have everything they need in order to be what they want to be. And I will do everything in my power for my kids to have that right and to be protected within that."

  • This is actually not the first time Charlize has referenced her daughters, telling Michael B Jordan during Variety's Actors on Actors show that she has "two young beautiful, black, African-American girls."

Roman Polanski Sues to be Reinstated to the Academy



  • Today in Why Aren't You Dead yet news, Roman "Serial Rapist" Polanski has filed a lawsuit to be let back into the Academy, nearly a year after he and Bill "Serial Rapist Part 2" Cosby were kicked out.

  • "The Academy committed a prejudicial abuse of discretion in that the Academy failed to proceed in a manner required by law, the Academy's expulsion decision is not supported by the findings, and the Academy's findings are not supported by the evidence," says his lawyer

  • Also says that since he's a prolific director and was allowed to keep his Oscar for The Pianist, that should be good enough to ignore the fact that he's also been accused of raping multiple women, particularly when they were underaged.

Kim Kardashian explains her basin-less bathroom sinks




Last week during her 73 Questions interview with Vogue, Kim Kardashian revealed a bathroom that features sinks with no basins. The internet was confused as to how that worked.

“Since everyone is a little bit confused about our sinks, I thought I would just show you guys a little tour of our bathroom,” she explained in her Instagram Stories.

Despite sinks that appear to be completely flat, the counters are slightly sloped to allow water to flow toward a small drain in the center. “You can put it on as high pressure as you want and no backsplash will come up,” she added.

Michael Che harasses a writer on Instagram over a snarky article about Colin Jost


• Earlier today writer Steven Hyden published a piece on Uproxx titled "Why Does Everyone (Still) Hate 'SNL's' Colin Jost?"

• The main point of the article is that Hyden considers Jost to be a "company man" who isn't very funny because he has no particular point of view. He makes no effort to be anything but "pleasant" and slightly frat bro-y in his comedy.

• It's unclear if Che was upset about the way Hyden wrote about Jost, or if he was upset that Hyden said that Che was "slightly edgier" and "generally funnier" than Jost.


• Like he's done so many times before, Che took to Instagram stories to complain about the article.

• This time he went on a post-and-delete spree where he "jokes" about Hyden being into bestiality. At one point, one of his followers sent him a screenshot of Hyden's Wikipedia page that had been changed to reference Che's joke.

• This isn't the first time Che has used social media to harass and/or belittle other writers (most of them women).

A number of female critics, writers, comedians, and editors talked to Jezebel the stories of Che finding their critical articles and tweets. Many (op included) would call this targetted harassment. Che insists that these critics should expect a comedian to fire back at them.

ontd, will you still like me when Michael Che screenshots this and tries to doxx me on his insta story?
