Are Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, Like, the Low-Rent Country Music Brad and Jen?
Vulture’s Bill Wyman took up the monumental task of ranking the 214 members of the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, so how could we not send some love over there, even if they ranked Bon Jovi dead last. 😞 (Vulture)
“Nothing that allowed me to find my penis within 20 minutes,” is how this Ryan Reynolds sentence begins. You’ll have to click to find out how it ends. (Lainey)
No, this is not how a shirt works. AT ALL. (Shameful heterosexual(ish) male admission: I kind of like it.) (GFY)
So, as you may have noticed, I’m doing Pajiba Love now, and for the time being. It’s a long story that involves another site and budget cuts and blah blah blah you don’t care (and Lainey remains fantastic, and she’s still around and will probably still show up here periodically and she still thinks TK is the worst and everything is still OK in the world). Anyway, since I started trolling the gossip sites this week, I can’t seem to get away from Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton stories. Has this always been a thing? Or did this just coincide with my takeover of PL? The latest? Some guy named Evan Felker “abandoned” and “ghosted” his wife because of Miranda Lambert. What? I think Shelton and Lambert probably have enough country-song material for a lifetime now. (Celebitchy)
Justin Timberlake and Baby Spice had sex. I mean, not recently. But at some point. (Dlisted)
One of my favorite new writers is Ciara Wardlow over at FSR, who is legit fantastic, and here she is covering three problems with Thanos’ master plan (my one problem? He looks too much like Ron Perlman not to be played by Ron Perlman). (FSR)
Speaking of Infinity War, check out the latest Slashfilm podcast, where Kristy and the Gang cover the film in all its glory (and occasional lack thereof. Yes! You can still like something while also being critical of it!). (/Film)
This seems like a Rebecca Pahle story, but Angie is good friends with Pahle, so I’ll allow it: “Of course Lando’s Millennium Falcon has a walk-in closet just for capes.” (Mashable)
Speaking of Pahle, she, Courtney, and Cher do up a Fuck, Marry, Kill Batman edition. (Fangrrls)
Despite covering The Walking Dead obsessively, I had no idea this guy was in Infinity War until three days after I saw the movie. That’s actually only a few days longer than Danai Gurira — who plays Michonne in TWD — knew. (Uproxx)
Hey! Don’t blame women and liberals because the Boy Scouts changed their name. (The Mary Sue)
Yesterday, Hannah wrote a fantastic piece on the Incels. Turns out, The Talmud covered incels’ demands for sexual redistribution 1500 years ago. “Let him die.” They go full Ivan Drago on the fuckers.

"Some books, you read more than once. In this case, I’m going to tell you about three of those." Tragic Sandwich has a trio of books for lovers of books and writing: two from the author of 84 Charing Cross Road, Helene Hanff; and Christina Hardyment’s Heidi’s Alps, a travelogue about her journey with her four daughters through Europe searching for the roots of children’s literature. Do you like reading about writers writing? (Cannonball Read 10)
How the hell does Scott Pruitt still have a job? SERIOUSLY. (Vanity Fair)
