Glitter Beards Flood Instagram as Latest Man Trend

by MARYAM OUTLAW

Hold on to those Movember manes for a little longer gentleman, because #glitterbeard is running rapid on social media.

First came the “beardstache,” then the “man bun” and now the glitter beard joins our elite list of hunky grooming trends gone viral. Coined by social media duo the Gay Beards, who decorate their beards with ornaments, flowers and paint, the glitter beard literally consists of just two things: facial fuzz and a whole lot of sparkle.

This week alone, the trend instantly became a popular Instagram and Twitter hashtag as plenty of men jumped on the bandwagon, posting merry photos of their bushy bristles.

Paramount Pictures Releases Star-Studded ‘Zoolander 2’ Trailer

by MARYAM OUTLAW

After major successes in 2001’s Zoolander, starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, Paramount Pictures finally released the trailer to Zoolander 2 and the teaser is surprisingly chock full of familiar faces baring the strangest characters.

After Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller), our favorite lip-puckering and borderline illiterate male model, embarrassingly discovers that he is now a washed-up fellow of the fashion industry, he is called back into action by none other than a gorgeous Penelope Cruz.

As an ambiguous crime agent of some sort, she recruits the help of both Zoolander and his rival turned BFF Hansel (Owen Wilson) because an unknown criminal mastermind is killing some of the world’s most beautiful people. Side note: according to this trailer, Justin Bieber is one of the world’s most beautiful people.

Will Ferrell also returns as clothing designer Jacobim Mugatu, who’s straight out of prison is looking to cause some mayhem—Seriously, he had his harmless assistant give him a steaming latte foam-imprinted with his face, took a sip and then poured it all over said harmless assistant…

 Alongside Penelope Cruz, Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch also stars as the new face of high fashion, an androgynous long-haired couture model who has basically replaced Zoolander as the it-guy. Is there anything Cumberbatch can’t do?

Comedic heavyweight Kristin Wiig also appears as a Botox-crazed professional in the fashion industry, sort of like Elizabeth Banks’ Effie Trinket in The Hunger Games—if she was addicted to cosmetic surgery.

The trailer also includes lists of celebrity cameos from starlets such as Joe Jonas, Usher, SNL’s Kyle Mooney and Miley Cyrus. And I have a feeling that there is a lot more where that came from.

Zoolander 2 is in theaters this February 12, 2016. Check out the trailer below.

 

Scandal Review: Rasputin

by BREANA BACON

Y’all, listen. I may not have class on Fridays anymore, but I’m tired of waking up disheveled because of the stress Shonda has caused me on Thursday nights. Therefore, I am starting a petition and setting up headquarters for my #StopShondaStress2015 campaign. I need signatures and volunteers so now is not the time to let your stress overcome you, it is time to take action. It should be a crime to snatch so many edges without permission as Shonda has over the past several years.

Anyway, without further adieu, let us debrief.

Shia LaBeouf Live Streams Himself Watching His Movies for Three Straight Days

by MARYAM OUTLAW

Just when America thought child actor/former blockbuster starlet/ art freak basket case Shia LaBeouf’s decision-making could not get any more peculiar, he decided to stream himself watching the bulk of his filmography for three days straight, a performance art project named #ALLMYMOVIES.

Yes, for 36 consecutive hours, we can all watch LaBeouf watch himself… in a frigid New York City movie theater…with buttered popcorn and Coca Cola…for no apparent reason.

Remember that ‘90s Jim Carey movie The Truman Show, in which Carey played this super nice, super normal guy unaware that every single second of his life has been filmed and broadcast to the entire world since before he was even born? This is pretty similar. Except that film was awesome and this is…different.

Scandal Review: The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

by BREANA BACON

Look people, I’m fed up. Not with Shonda this week, but with Olivia.

I refuse to begin this debriefing with any pleasantries because I am stressed and irritated beyond relief.

Scandal Review: You Got Served

by BREANA BACON

Look y’all, I’m feeling like Tamela Mann tonight. I’m tired and after this week’s episode I need nothing than to be taken to the throne of grace. Jesus take the wheel and steer it to the king.

Olivia Pope needs to be fixed? That just isn’t right. My letter to Shonda is coming as soon as my Dr. Miracle edge repair arrives, I promise.

Anyway, let us begin before the stress comes creeping back.

Scandal Review: Dog-Whistle Politics

by BREANA BACON

Hello my Gladiator friends,

Welcome to another edition of my De-stress Session! I’m sure you all, like me, have to replace your mugs this week because you’ve realized that the tea Shonda Rhimes spilled this episode was more than your minuscule cup and saucer could handle.

I was simply outdone by the amount of uncomfortable truths that the light was shed on this week, but I’ll be the first to say, we needed that truth to be brought forward. Some people in this world need it more than others but that’s just not any of my business.
