Pop culture has exploded along with the availability of new outlets online, and these blogs will help you keep track of the thousands of new movies, TV shows, bands and celebrities emerging each month. Perspectives range from respectful treatment of celebs and their work to sheer, unadulterated gossip.
Movie and music celebrities–at parties, on red carpets, at the
beach, smooching their girlfriends/boyfriends after lunch. Generally
good-news stories about the beautiful people (rather than tabloid-style
death-and-divorce) plus tips on how to recreate what the stars wear on
a normal person’s budget.
Music and culture with a UK spin, from tributes to Lena Horne to
the latest by Jack White and the Mother Hips. Offers downloadable
sample tracks of emerging acts plus music videos and coverage of
Culture with a conservative spin and a sense of humor. Looks at
whether the Cannes Festival prefers movies critical of America, whether
TV’s The Mentalist maligns conservatives, and other
culture-war-lite musings–but always with an interesting, rather than an
offensive, take on events.
Politicians, actors and actresses, singers, bloggers, athletes,
and those famous for being famous all get the celebrity treatment. Like
reading a significantly smarter National Enquirer in which everyone’s a star for a few minutes.
The print pop-culture mag has a strong online presence that covers music, TV, movies, books, video and more, all with EW‘s traditional attention to pop-culture trends and great writing.
