16 minutes ago

For a career musician, Gene Simmons’ timing seemed to be a little off this week — at least on Twitter. Kiss frontman Simmons, who’s reputation with the ladies hasn’t exactly been hotter than hell lately, attempted to get on the good side of things Thursday with a message of female empowerment. Unfortunately for Simmons, the message came just a day after he received a lifetime ban from Fox News for, among other things, reportedly speaking crudely to female network staffers and hitting two of them on the head with a copy of the new book he’s promoting.

2 hours ago

Usually a film’s title offers at least a clue as to what it’s about. Not so with “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” Even the ads show only the back of Denzel Washington’s head with a fuzzy Afro.

It’s not just the hair, dorky oversized glasses, gapped teeth, and rumpled »
