Truth Is, People You Love Are Capable Of Shitty Things

Mike Sholars | May 30, 2016 | Canada Living
I'm just asking for all of us to take a second and really analyze what's happening when we knee-jerk defend a celebrity. Do we truly think they're incapable of doing the act in question? Or do we just need to believe that we didn't invest our love and energy in a bad place? Only children think that someone they love is infallible because of that love. So let's grow up.

INTERVIEW: Kate Beckinsale on Love & Friendship

Zaki Hasan | May 29, 2016 | Entertainment
Kate Beckinsale is a performer who has always ably jumped between such bombastic Hollywood fare as Total Recall and her signature Underworld series, and smaller offerings such as her latest project, Love & Friendship.

How Drake is Redefining Masculinity

Tobi Abdul | May 27, 2016 | Entertainment
It's not quite clear whether my love for Drake is ironic, some sort of patriotic obligation, or if a Canadian, mixed-race, emotional, TV star-turned-rapper simply beat the odds, rose to the top of the charts and became, in his mind anyway, a legend. Regardless of what you think about his...

Sorry, Not Sorry: My Apology Addiction

Lena Dunham | May 27, 2016 | Women
Apologizing is a modern plague, and I'd be willing to bet (though I have zero scientific research to back this up) that many women utter "I'm sorry" more on a given day than "Thank you" and "You're welcome" combined. I am a woman who is sometimes right, sometimes wrong but somehow always sorry.
