Recent science is shedding light on this question, and the main culprit at work seems to be envy. The more we envy someone, the more pleasure we derive when that person meets some horrid end.
Film: The Bling Ring (2013) Cast includes: Katie Chang (A Birder's Guide to Everything), Israel Broussard (Flipped), Emma Watson (Harry Potter series)...
If people begin to understand through a certain amount of media osmosis that a person of Arab lineage can be one of two personality types on either end of the spectrum, then the hope is that they will also be able to fill in the rest.
Among many resonant moments in Liz Garbus's documentary Love, Marilyn, a pouf-lipped Lindsay Lohan reads from Marilyn Monroe's diary, one in an ensemble of A-list blond stars -- and a few brunettes.
Today's entertainment news seems to be filled with conflict. There's the Jennifer Aniston versus Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt saga, the war against the Kardashians, the public's turning against Gwyneth Paltrow and Anne Hathaway, just to name a few.
Mattie Kahn Ah, sanity. It can be so aesthetically limiting. Thankfully, not everyone feels bound by its strictures. Ever the trend-setting bunch, s...
Amanda Bynes is, without a doubt, an 11 on the media dubbed "hot mess" Richter scale, and it seems like there is some kind of cultural payoff in watching her seismic mishaps expand.
I look at a lot of art. Sometimes it's my own, sometimes it's some of the mind-boggling amount available around the city. Today's post took me to Nolita, Chelsea, the Lower East Side and Soho.

My attempt to decline the assignment, primarily based on the excuse, "I've never seen any other installment of the Scary Movie franchise," was met with deaf ears. Unfortunately, Scary Movie 5 was not screened early for press, so, early on a cold and rainy Friday on Manhattan's Upper East Side, I paid to see Scary Movie 5.

I just saw your most recent cover over at Wonderland magazine. You look beautiful. What I take issue with, however, is that you talk about being single forever.
We've clearly gotten way too casual as a nation about our definition of what does and does not constitute sideboob. To help, we compiled a chart of the different kinds of boob potentially visible in celebrity photos.
