Sophie Turner revealed in an interview that she told some friends the ending of Game of Thrones and people were SO MAD. She then had to clarify that she only told two people: her husband and one other friend and it was no biggie. First of all, y’all need to calm down. Second of all, she didn’t “ruin” anything for anyone. If I were friends with her or any other person associated with the show, and I didn’t mind being spoiled, you better believe I’d not only demand they tell me everything and be VERY FURIOUS if they refused.
And in conclusion: LEAVE SANSA ALONE.

So I had read that Viacom and AT&T were in a squabble and I didn’t really think anything about it because I stopped watching MTV when they stopped playing music. But then I was watching this week’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race and all these notices that I needed to call AT&T and scream at them if I wanted to keep my Drag Race popped up and what I’m saying is I am relieved everything worked out because I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN HAPPY IF MY QUEENS HAD BEEN TAKEN AWAY. MTV is one thing, DRAG RACE IS A WHOLE ‘NOTHER.

Oh, Dre. Did YOU forget about something? Because after posting a gloating Instagram photo about how your daughter got into USC on her own, some people pointed out that you and Jimmy Iovine gave the school $70 MILLION. In comparison, Lori Loughton got a deal.
Barbara Streisand really fucking stepped in it, you guys. In an interview with The Times of London, she said that she blames the parents of Michael Jackson’s accusers for what happened to them — which is not great, but kinda understandable. But then! She went on to suggest that the abuse couldn’t have been that bad because they “both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.” AND THEN, she went on to add, “His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has. You can say ‘molested,’ but those children, as you heard say, they were thrilled to be there.”
Streisand has since issued an apology:
