AHS: Trigger Warning

The following article contains American Horror Story: Cult spoilers. I think Ryan Murphy misses Scream Queens. Because what I saw Tuesday night– demonic, horny clowns terrorizing Sarah Paulson, a deranged and racist Evan Peters peeing into a condom, Chaz Bono wearing a MAGA red cap– was hilarious.

Look What You Made Me Do

The Era of the Makeup Celebrity

A roaring crowd of fans. Hundreds in line, head to toe in merchandise, holding products in the hopes of an autograph or waving their iPhones about for a coveted snap of the star.

Girl Powered Summer Blockbusters – Get Used to It

There is nothing quite like going to a see a summer blockbuster.
