Welcome back to No Filter, your one-stop shop for reliable celebrity journalism. This week, Holland Taylor and Sarah Paulson were “more loved-up than ever” and I fell deeply in love with this image of famous straight lady Katy Perry, expressing a universally understood emotion while on vacation with her boyfriend:

Anyway, Instagram!

You know that thing where you take a video and the other person thinks it’s a photo so they smile awkwardly? Well here’s that thing.

I’m not sure exactly what’s going on here but it looks important.
Have you ever seen anything so weird or beautiful in your whole life?

I guess this week everybody’s doing this Whole 30 thing that makes no sense to me, I’m sitting here eating a peanut butter cup. This zucchini noodle is impressive though.

Queen Latifah! What are you doing in this column?!

I have always turned to Hannah Hart for my makeup reviews, and I see no reason to stop now.
Kids normally don’t do much for me but YOU GUYS BABY KREAYSHAWN IS DEEJAYING.
Mey’s girlfriend Demi Lovato made a decision about as wise as that time Ozzy Osbourne got smiley faces tattooed on his knees.

I thought we could all stand to watch this video of Jasika Nicole dancing alone in a bathroom stall. Stars: they’re just like us!

Join us next week, when Demi Lovato will probably bite the head off a bat or something.

  1. Am I the only one who feels like this #Whole30 thing just appeared out of no where and now everyone’s doing it? .-.

  2. My god Danielle Brooks is so fucking radiant and beautiful and gorgeous and superb and brilliant.

  3. How can one become friends with Kristen and bring her wine? I know a good wine that works with the pasta I can bring.

  4. Whole30 sounds to me like an entire month of Passover. I can barely stand 8 days.

  5. I whole-heartedly agree with you, Stef. I am about go go make crackers with cheese on them.


    Also: see what I did there? WHOLE-heartedly?!

  6. Omg my sister is also going the Whole 30 thing. Except she decided to extend it so now she’s on day 40 or something. And tomorrow is her birthday and I normally bake her some buttery sugary treat but now I don’t know what to do! Anyways Jasika Nikole is a beautiful goddess ??
