Rilo Kiley, Jenny Lewis, Taylor Swift, And The Trail Of Heartbreak Pop

Rilo Kiley came into my life when I was 16. I couldn't have found the California indie-rock band at a more pivotal time. At that age, I was dealing with two terrible relationships back-to-back that broke my spirit, while also feeling like an outsider in high school. Jenny Lewis's songwriting helped me find solace; her songs made me feel like she was the cool older friend guiding me through it all, validating my emotions, with songs like "Capturing Moods," "Go Ahead," and "Glendora."

How Ahsoka Tano's Storied Star Wars Past Could Inform Her Mandalorian Future

The Mandalorian brought viewers a litany of memorable characters when it made its debut on Disney+ in November 2019. First, we met bounty hunter Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal). Then, we fell in love with the cutest infant in the known universe: the Child, affectionately known as Baby Yoda. We also met Gina Carano's former Rebel shock trooper Cara Dune, who had no qualms about going toe-to-toe with Mando in battle.

Harley Quinn’s Style Evolution From Jester Sidekick To Badass Broad

The pages of comic books may be rife with powerful female characters, but when it comes to the fictional women fans can’t get enough of, Harleen Quinzel reigns supreme. The maniacal former mental health professional now known as Harley Quinn is many things: the Joker's ex-girlfriend, the unhinged leader of her own girl gang, and resident badass of the DC Universe.

These Baby Yoda Fan Theories Could Unlock The Mystery Behind Star Wars' Cutest Creature

Theory #1: He's the result of the Dark Side's manipulation of the Force What if Baby Yoda isn't simply an organic creature born to the Yoda species, but a creation of the Force? This theory is a bit difficult to follow, but it's one of the more popular schools of thought currently making the rounds among fans. Essentially, it plays off the idea that there needs to be balance in the Force — both light and dark — and positions Baby Yoda as coming into being in response to Darth Plagueis and Palp

The Underrated Screen Queens Of Halloween

The Halloweentown series is something of a mainstay when it comes to memorable movies of the season, and yet its star Marnie Piper (Kimberly J. Brown) rarely gets the recognition she deserves for bringing one of the franchise's most powerful witches to life. She's caring, resourceful, and quick-witted and shares a deep love for Halloween that many of us can likely relate to. But despite having been kept from enjoying the spooky season for most of her life, she isn't bitter or angry. She simply

Puerto Rico's Uprising Is So Much Bigger Than One Resignation

'This is a protest of rage and power and pride and joy. This is an uprising of the people, who refuse to be silenced' There’s an uprising in the Caribbean. For more than a week, hundreds of thousands of Puerto Ricans have been protesting on the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan, Ponce, Mayagüez, and other towns on the island. The voices of elders, young adults, and children in unison yell “¡Ricky, renuncia!,” demanding Governor Ricardo Rosselló vacate his seat. On Monday, demonstrations even

9 Real Life Places That Are Just Like 'Game of Thrones'

Next up, 9 real places that are just like 'The Wire.' "Game of Thrones" is set in a world bigger than South America, with roughly the same terrain of Europe. That means we get to see breath-taking highlands, ancient cities and the icy netherworlds every Sunday night. And good news! You can actually go to some of those places, or their rough equivalent. Here are nine real life places that are just like "Game of Thrones:" The Barne Glacier is located on Ross Island in Antarctica. It ends in wha

We Don't Deserve Rihanna Day Drinking With Seth Meyers

Seth Meyers, noted Rihanna superfan, became one of the luckiest members of the entire Rihana Navy on the latest episode of his late night talk show. We first heard earlier this week that Rih would be appearing alongside Seth Meyers on his show, but with our fave being the way she is, it would instead be just as spicy as Rih herself. The mega-star took to a segment on Late Night with Seth Meyers in which the two hung out together, got an abundance of day drinking in, and it was too fantastic for

Stranger Things Is About To Bring The Hawkins Kids Their Biggest Threat Yet

'You let us in. And now, you are going to have to let us stay' Things are only getting stranger in Hawkins, Indiana. A new trailer showcasing Stranger Things Season 3 debuted Thursday night (June 20), and its nearly three minutes of content looks positively terrifying. Not only are Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and the rest of the crew back in the clip, but there's an eerie voice at the beginning that sounds suspiciously like the Mind Flayer, or the creature that poor Will Byers (Noah Schnapp)

Game Of Thrones' Stars Found An Ingenious Use For Jaime Lannister's Prosthetic Hand

What do you do with a golden prosthetic hand once it's outlived its usefulness? Fill it with fruit, of course! At least, that's what Game of Thrones co-stars Lena Headey and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau did on the set during Season 8. Coster-Waldau took to Instagram with a look at just some of the antics your favorite Game of Thrones stars got up to between takes. After Jaime got his prosthetic arm following a violent stabbing right in his appendage, it became something of a defining characteristic f
