Jac's roundup of pop culture news and Internet findings
is officially over and I have to say, this year’s costumes — both celebrity and
normal humans — left a lot to be desired (and I’m not even going there with the
Ray Rice costumes). In my book, a costume can be scary, funny or sexy, but it
has to be clever, one-of-a-kind or really well-executed. Enough with the “I’m a
mouse, duh” getups, already!
star who slayed the costume game was Iggy Azalea. I-G-G-Y: I know I slammed you
last week for your lackluster SNL
performances, but you totally redeemed yourself. A little background first: There
have been memes going around comparing Iggy to the Wayons Brothers in White Chicks — both because of her

had the last laugh on Halloween, dressing up in an eerie White Chicks costume with a friend.
did a killer Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costume.Also, Riri’s back on Instagram!
always sad when a holiday ends — except, of course election season. Let’s toast
to the end of campaign ads and at least a decrease in asinine political

working with Judd Apatow for a reboot I can definitely get behind for once.
Another mega-Yoncé album is coming this month. The Platinum Edition will feature
everything from Beyoncé, plus two new
songs, 10 live performances from the On the Run Tour, four remixes and some
other swag if you purchase a physical copy.
Watching ignorant politicians make fools of themselves on The Daily Show never ceases to amuse.

Loren and Jayne Mansfield? Some see it as representing the rivalry between blondes and brunettes, others see it as a testament to Sophia Loren's killer side-eye. So what was she looking at? Apparently, what everyone else (presumably) was. "I’m staring at her nipples because I am afraid they are about to come onto my plate," Loren told Entertainment Weekly.
