The Rockettes (and Ciara) Taught Us How To Dance and Only One of Us Got Injured The Rockettes (and Ciara) Taught Us How To Dance and Only One of Us Got Injured

Working at a blog like Jezebel affords us many opportunities to embarrass ourselves in public. This time, we volunteered for the opportunity to learn how to dance with the New York City Rockettes and Ciara, a combination that doesn’t immediately make much sense but tickled our fancy. We would learn to do high kicks,…

The Midterm Elections, As Experienced by My MSNBC-Loving Father  The Midterm Elections, As Experienced by My MSNBC-Loving Father 

My father cast his first vote in a presidential election in 1968, in New York, for comedian and civil rights activist Dick Gregory. During Nixon’s impeachment in 1974, he was in the hospital for leukemia treatments; he ordered a television specifically to his room to watch the news, and told me that he remembered…

Ariana Grande's 'thank u, next' Is the Perfect Breakup Anthem Ariana Grande's 'thank u, next' Is the Perfect Breakup Anthem

On Saturday night, roughly 30 minutes before her erstwhile fiancé Pete Davidson clocked into work at Saturday Night Live, Ariana Grande released into the ether, “thank u, next” —a petty bop seemingly aimed square at his tender heart.

Cook With Tongs Cook With Tongs

Of all the garbage utensils that litter the various drawers in my kitchen, I value the tongs the most. Please never take my tongs from me. I need them. I will die if they ever leave my side.

Baths Should Be 30 Minutes Max Baths Should Be 30 Minutes Max

Self-care yourself into peaceful oblivion however you must—jade roller, sheet mask, eye massage, etc— but if you are going to slide your nude bod into a bathtub and luxuriate there for any amount of time, I beg of you: keep that shit to a tight 30 minutes and no longer.

Busy Philipps Wants to Be Your Best Friend on Busy Tonight Busy Philipps Wants to Be Your Best Friend on Busy Tonight

Busy Tonight, the new talk show featuring actor turned Instagram personality Busy Philipps is trying to do a lot with not that much. The premise, similar to her social media presence, is that Philipps is a normal woman with a relatable life that is just like your life. But unlike your pedestrian existence, Busy Philipp…

There Is No Amount of Money I'd Be Willing to Pay for Ed Sheeran's Underpants There Is No Amount of Money I'd Be Willing to Pay for Ed Sheeran's Underpants

Ed Sheeran, a ginger troubadour with only one song that I will admit to liking (out loud), is auctioning off his personal possessions for charity, including but not limited to this souvenir Heinz ketchup t-shirt, a Gameboy, and, for some reason that I don’t feel great about, roughly 10 pairs of previously-worn,…

Dress Your Chickens in Leather and Lace This Halloween Dress Your Chickens in Leather and Lace This Halloween

On Wednesday, it was widely reported that the CDC issued a strict warning to chicken owners across this great nation of ours that they should NOT dress their chickens in costume this Halloween, for fear of contracting salmonella. As a woman afraid of most birds but somehow NOT afraid of chickens, this news struck me…

Take a Risk and Kill Everyone on Modern Family Take a Risk and Kill Everyone on Modern Family

On Wednesday night, a death occurred on Modern Family—a death that had been teased throughout the duration of this seemingly interminable show’s 10th season.

Lose Yourself in the Pastel Dreamscape of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2 Trailer Lose Yourself in the Pastel Dreamscape of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 2 Trailer

The best thing about the trailer for Season 2 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel isn’t the cutting commentary about how men are like this and women are like that—“Comedy is fueled by disappointment and humiliation. Now who the hell does that describe more than women?” she says at one point. Revolutionary stuff. A…

My Fall Crush Is, Unfortunately, Adam Levine  My Fall Crush Is, Unfortunately, Adam Levine 

Adam Levine, father of Dusty Rose and Gio Grace, husband to Behati Prinsloo, and occasional frontman to a truly terrible band, Maroon 5, has questionable tattoos and dresses like a teenager with too much money. Still, while watching The Voice the other night, I realized a truth that I can no longer hide: Adam Levine…

Finally, Are You There God? It's Me Margaret Will be Made Into a Movie! Finally, Are You There God? It's Me Margaret Will be Made Into a Movie!

Are You There God, It’s Me, Margaret is finally getting the movie treatment, nearly 50 years after its publication, which is very exciting news for a generation of women who grew up doing that thing with their elbows while whispering, I must, I must, I must increase my bust like a fucked-up yogic mantra.

The Property Brothers Scripted Series Will Be the Thing That Finally Kills Me Dead The Property Brothers Scripted Series Will Be the Thing That Finally Kills Me Dead

The Property Brothers are two big and tall boys who sort of know how to do home renovation; they are also illusionists and musicians. They are the bane of my very existence, haunting my second-favorite cable channel, HGTV, with their grim visages, their clean, white teeth, and their dopey affect. They have dominated…

Have You Ever Noticed that Meghan Markle's Mean Sister Samantha Looks Like Kim Cattrall? Have You Ever Noticed that Meghan Markle's Mean Sister Samantha Looks Like Kim Cattrall?

I have been sitting on this quiet observation for far too long, and feel compelled to share this with the general public, in the hopes that someone out there will confirm that I am not crazy. Doesn’t Samantha Markle, estranged half-sister of Meghan, look an awful lot like Kim Cattrall?

My Pussy Is Almost Back to Normal My Pussy Is Almost Back to Normal

In New York, summer has finally ended, though it lingered for longer than some might have liked. A sticky breeze blew through the city, coating everything in a slick of face grease and palm sweat—a hellish harbinger of a future in which seasons are a distant memory and the earth slowly but surely boils itself to…
