Kathy Griffin did a Tyler Shields photo shoot that involved a bloody Trump head, and people were not impressed. Dumb people, but still.

Alicia Keys Opens Up in Ebony

alicia-keys-ebony

Alicia Keys looks amazing on the new cover of Ebony. I almost want to watch The Voice this season to see how people react to her no-makeup look on a mainstream broadcast show.

-Set your DVRs: MTV will reportedly let Kanye West do whatever the hell he wants for 4 minutes at this weekend’s VMAs.

-This is an excellent and thought-provoking discussion on whether or not it’s still ok to want to see Birth of a Nation. Personally, I no longer have much interest, but on the flip side, I think it’s ridiculous that Oscar voters are refusing to see it. That’s like a critic refusing to review it.

Amber Heard called Johnny Depp out for donating her $7m settlement directly to charity. What a dick move. Her statement about it is fire, tho.

-Meanwhile, Elon Musk has been trying to date Heard for three(!) years.

Sarah Paulson is in talks to join the all-female Ocean’s Eleven spinoff, which is amazing! Wait, they’re not really calling it Ocean’s Ocho, are they? ‘Cause that’s less amazing.

Rob Lowe is being roasted and the lineup of celebs is incredibly bizarre.

The Rock has just been named the highest paid actor — and has promised to take us all to Waffle House!

Justin Bieber’s family is denying any involvement with Bowmanville Zoo.

Leslie Jones‘ website hack being investigated by Homeland Security, the FBI says. Good.

-Are Chris Rock and Megalyn Echikunwoke already engaged?

Britney Spears isn’t super thrilled that Lifetime is making a movie about her. (I’m really hoping there’s an extended scene devoted to her and JT picking out their matching denim outfits.)

-Meanwhile, this story about how Britney Spears‘ hair, which has been her mood ring for 20 years is all kinds of great.

-Speaking of great reads, here’s a piece on UnREAL, Mr Robot and the perils of taking big swings in your sophomore season.

-There’s a very good chance that Universal will sue Frank Ocean over his album switcheroo.
