Gilmore Girls Is Returning to Our Screens

The small-town folk of Stars Hollow are set to return to our TV screens, bringing back all that mother-daughter bonding we’ve so terribly missed.

TV Line reports that Gilmore Girls is getting a limited series revival through Netflix, with series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino to write four 90-minute episodes. The source also wants to strongly emphasise that “This is not a drill”. (more…)

Beyoncé Undertakes Her First Print Interview in 2 Years, Please Prepare Freak-Out Accordingly


A photo posted by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

We know people freak out whenever Beyoncé joins forces with a magazine; her Vogue September Issue cover was proof of that. What makes her latest shoot for Beat so special, though, is that she’s opened herself up to an interview, something that she didn’t even do for the fashion bible.

Queen Bey hasn’t taken part in a print interview since 2013, because, well, when you’re the centre of everyone’s universe you don’t need any extra press. As Beat explained, she’s “a woman who prefers to let her music and performance do the talking”, but we’re so glad she’s embraced the sit-down chat, because her latest words of wisdom are just glorious.

Although the mag doesn’t come out until tomorrow, October 21, we’ve all been treated to a little preview of what we can find inside. From how she likes her pizza to what she’d dress up as for Halloween, Bey has really gone wild on, you know, the important stuff. Check out what we learned about the real-life god below. (more…)

Kate Hudson Fails to Flash a Convincing Smile on Allure’s November Cover (Forum Buzz)

The American edition of Allure has been doing more than alright lately, having served up some fabulous covers with the likes of Taraji P. Henson and Salma Hayek, winning over our forum members. Allure unveiled its November 2015 installment just before the weekend featuring Kate Hudson. Photographed by Tom Munro, Kate delivers an energetic cover shot to accompany the theme of the magazine’s Happiness Issue.

But were our forum members happy with the outcome? “Happiness Issue? Really? Well it doesn’t look happy enough,” announced a disapproving jeffandtheworld within seconds of the cover coming to light.

“‘Happiness Issue’ with Kate Hudson looking like death warmed over. And what’s with the Americans and all their cheerfulness? Lol. These cover lines make me want to go out and blow Mary Poppins’ head off,” shared Benn98.

Also unimpressed with Allure‘s efforts was tigerrouge: “That cover shot would be fine if they were selling us ‘the new neutrals’ or ‘Kate Hudson bare’ but not this nonsense about a happiness issue. If that’s the case, you need to hire one of those people who can smile for a living. Did they not have Julia Roberts a month ago? Her smile goes on for days.”

Forum member burbuja8910 wasn’t feeling it either, echoing, “She looks so weird on the cover trying to make a smile.”

“What a messy cover. Kate doesn’t look good here,” agreed narcyza.

“Really?” asked a surprised Sweet rus. “I personally get these happy vibes off of Kate. She looks very pretty and positively glowing, too Photoshopped though.”

Are you a fan? Wait and see if there’s a more convincing shot from Kate’s cover story and join the conversation here.

Angelina Jolie’s Long Overdue Fifth Vogue Cover Receives Mixed Reviews (Forum Buzz)

Just like Rihanna’s cover of Vanity Fair, we’ve been waiting for this particular shoot to surface for what feels like a lifetime. Our forum members have been championing for Angelina Jolie to grace the cover of Vogue for a fifth time and the wait is finally over as the actress is unveiled as Vogue‘s November cover star. Shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, Angelina wears Saint Laurent at the beach in the stunning image, appropriately coinciding with the release of Angie’s highly anticipated movie By the Sea.

The cover, however, received mixed reviews across the board. “I think it looks stunning, always love her back on the cover of Vogue, and I don’t even mind the bad styling, because she looks so gorgeous,” said Miss Dalloway.

“I really like it. When I read the title I was expecting much worse. Their best cover in a while,” declared MyNameIs.

Also full of appreciation was LastNight: “I think it’s beautiful. It’s nice to get a real background after months of studio backdrops and blurred out scenery.”

RanThe felt the same way, adding, “Angelina looks simply gorgeous on the cover. I love the fact that she is on the beach on the cover to go along with the film By the Sea and I think it’s appropriate for November. It looks chilly but very natural. This is hands down the best cover of the year along with Lupita’s and Serena’s.”

The rest of us were left slightly underwhelmed. “That could be an ELLE cover! So cheap!” complained jeffandtheworld.

“I thought I’d like this, but it feels like it’s trying too hard to be authentic through some really artificial means… contrived casual,” tigerrouge disapproved.

“Who is going to tell Leibovitz that she should retire?” asked Les_Sucettes.

Was Angelina’s fifth cover worth the wait? Drop us a line here.

WATCH: Skitbox Poke Fun At Old Friends Trying to ‘One-Up’ Each Other

The women behind viral video sensation “Activewear“, Skitbox, have released a new video parodying the notorious practice of trying to “one up” someone else.

The video sees two old uni friends bump into each other and justify their priorities in life, like whether marriage and kids or casual sex and freedom to travel is the better life to live, and, for some weird reason, compete over who has a more dramatic sob story and nastier health problems. 

It’s safe to say most of us have been there, trying to come out on top of a conversation with someone you haven’t seen in years, or with an old friend you ended on bad terms with and need to prove yourself to. We’d venture to say this isn’t a habit exclusive to women as the clip suggests, though. (more…)

Lara Bingle, Iggy Azalea and More Placed On Reimagined Australian Banknotes

Creative illustrator, art director and all-round genius Aaron Tyler has created some modern-day, largely popular culture-based Australian dollar notes, highlighting the fact that most Aussies don’t know who’s on our five, 10, 20, 50 and 100 dollar notes as they stand.

Sure, we know Queen Elizabeth II and probably all did that year-four assignment which required us to give ten fun facts about convict-turned-businesswoman Mary Reibey ($20 note, FYI) but, as Aaron says on his blog, “Those faces were relevant once, but they don’t strike a chord with modern Australia.”

His forward-thinking conclusion? Redesigning Australia’s banknotes with his artistic flair, bringing the country’s most “instantly recognisable personalities and cultural icons that present-day Australians love” to the the forefront. Check out the results below, with everyone from model Lara Bingle to export Iggy Azalea, flamin’ legend Alf Stewart, and morning-show funny man Karl Stefanovic (sorry Kochie) in the mix. (more…)
