Jeff Goldblum has a daily routine that includes working out in his home gym and spending an inordinate amount of time at the piano. “I play every day,” he tells Rolling Stone. “It’s part of my life.

A Queer As Folk Reboot Is In the Works at Bravo

A Queer As Folk reboot is in development at Bravo, but not in the way you might be thinking. Before it debuted in 2000 on Showtime in the U.S., the show originally was developed by Russell T. Davies in the UK, and it starred Charlie Hunnam, Aiden Gillen, and Craig Kelly as three gay men living in Manchester. It ran for 10 episodes from 1999 to 2000. Davies is on board for the new version, which will be a modern take on the original British series, E! News has confirmed. Variety originally broke the news.  The reboot will follow a group of club-going friends who find support in the gay community following a tragedy, and while it will be all new characters, we can only hope some of its original...

Meghan Markle's Flawless Calligraphy Is Putting My Christmas Card Signature to Shame

Meghan Markle's Flawless Calligraphy Is Putting My Christmas Card Signature to Shame
Welp, in case you had any doubt, Meghan Markle does have picture-perfect handwriting, and it's making me rethink my own priorities. The Duchess of Sussex put her calligraphy skills to good use on Tuesday during a solo engagement to a Royal Variety Charity residential care home in London, where she and the residents did arts and crafts and decorated a photo frame that featured their own designs and Meghan's penmanship. She also signed the official guestbook.

In case you're oohing and ahhing over Meghan's handwriting like I am, you should take comfort in the fact that she honed those skills over time. Long before she began her married life with Prince Harry, Meghan supported her acting career by working as a wedding calligrapher and as an instructor at Paper Source in Beverly Hills from 2004 to 2005. "I think handwritten notes are a lost art form," she once told Good Housekeeping. "The

It Might Only Be a Week Until Christmas, but Meghan Markle Is Still Busy, Busy, Busy
In might only be a week until Christmas, but Meghan Markle still has a full schedule. On Tuesday, the duchess ventured out on another solo royal engagement to visit the Royal Variety Charity residential care home Brinsworth House, a home for retired artists and those who spent their lives serving the entertainment industry. Meghan made the visit to see firsthand how the charity cares for its residents, and the visit comes after she and Harry attended the Royal Variety Performance in November. Of course, she was glowing during the visit, wearing a gray coat over a white patterned dress.

It's safe to say it's been a busy festive period for Meghan. In between sending all of the Sussex's Christmas cards, she made a surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards and is also no doubt getting ready for the family move to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, ahead of the birth

14 Moments That Made This a Truly Sensational and Game-Changing Year For Lady Gaga

14 Moments That Made This a Truly Sensational and Game-Changing Year For Lady Gaga
2018 shall forever live on in my memory as the year Lady Gaga did that. Don't get me wrong, she's had plenty of incredible 12-month periods before this one, but the special thing about this year in particular is that she broke every Lady Gaga mold that had been previously made for her. This year, Gaga didn't even technically put out a studio album, but she basically wrote one for A Star Is Born. Oh, and then she absolutely broke us with her glorious, transcendent performance therein.

It's true that a lot of her year revolved around this one shining moment; so many of her glorious appearances and press moments came from that film. But in some strange way, the whole ordeal introduced us to a new side of the icon we've born witness to for the past decade. Allow me to break down what made 2018 so special to her . . . and to me,

Here's Why Tyrion Will Win the Iron Throne on Game of Thrones

Here's Why Tyrion Will Win the Iron Throne on Game of Thrones
With White Walkers practically knocking on King's Landing's door, the fight for control over Westeros almost seems like a nonissue. But if the latest Game of Thrones teaser illustrates anything, it's that the battle in the North is only part of the story's final chapter. The matter of who will sit on the Iron Throne remains in play, and although the show has gone to great lengths to set either Daenerys or Jon Snow up as the future leader of Westeros, those two lovers appear to be doomed. Having either (or both) of the Targaryen heirs end up running the Seven Kingdoms feels far too obvious for a show that loves its twists - not to mention the writers' gift for playing the long game. This is partially why we believe Tyrion Lannister is going to be the person who wins the figurative game of thrones.
