    Hunger Games’ actress Amandla Stenberg is upset with Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, and other celebrities for their (mis)appropriation of black culture. Click inside to WATCH. Amandla Stenberg, 16, recorded a video for her friends, classmates, and the world that sends a powerful message about how black culture has gone mainstream without actually being accepted by others.

    Every time there’s another story about Brittany Spears’ infantile, self-destructive behavior, I condemn the American press for covering that subject like a horse blanket. And I watch as the national I.Q. drops two points in a day because the Brittany story is everywhere, on all channels. But the performances of Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail and in presidential “debates” in Iowa and New Hampshire, demonstrate parallels between Brittany and Hillary. The comparisons are in favor of the singer, not the lecturer. The most incredible thing that Hillary has said, in front of God and everybody, is this, “I have...
  • 1st Beaver spotted in NYC in 200 years

    NEW YORK - Beavers grace New York City's official seal. But the industrious rodents have not been seen in the flesh here for as many as 200 years — until this week. Biologists videotaped a beaver swimming up the Bronx River on Wednesday. Its twig-and-mud lodge had been spotted earlier on the river bank, but the tape confirmed the presence of the animal itself. "It had to happen because beaver populations are expanding, and their habitats are shrinking," said Dietland Muller-Schwarze, a beaver expert at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse. "We're...

    In perhaps his most memorable cameo since donning a furry dolphin suit at a Flaming Lips performance, Justin Timberlake joined Mick Jagger and the rest of the Rolling Stones onstage during the veteran rock band's set at the concert for Toronto on Wednesday night. The afternoon kicked off on a low point for Timberlake when a concertgoer's sign questioning the singer's sexuality made it to the jumbotrons for about 15 seconds. Timberlake took to the stage with an obvious awareness of audience cynicism, beginning his set with a small attempt to mitigate the crowd's frustration: "This will be over before...

    <p>On a bustling Saturday afternoon a silent, generational war started at Abercrombie & Fitch, the teen retail clothing store in the San Francisco Shopping Centre, an urban mall at Market and Fifth streets.</p> <p>A girl of maybe 15, wearing braces and hip-hugger jeans, fingered a shrunken, see-through T-shirt that coyly advertised "Hottie Brand Cocoa." Her mother, noting her daughter's interest, eyeballed the stack of shirts and grimaced. She moved purposefully on, but her daughter lingered, hope in her eyes. After a minute, she gave up.</p>

    Spears arrived almost an hour late>/b> Britney Spears left fans disappointed at the UK première of her debut film on Monday when she declined to meet dedicated followers who had waited for hours to get autographs and chat to the star. Some of the 3,000 fans - who had come from as far away as South Africa - booed and hissed the star when she was whisked into the screening of Crossroads just moments after arriving at the Odeon Leicester Square in London's West End. "All I saw was a flash of sequin and that was it"-- Fran Handley, 16...
