As you surely know by now, Jon Stewart is retiring as the host of "The Daily Show," and just as surely as you know that, you are heartbroken as well. He's become such a fixture in the world of comedic news, and it's hard to imagine the show going on without him. But it is going on, natch, and we've just learned that Trevor Noah will be Jon's replacement. Trevor is a relatively unknown comedian, which is fine, but what's not so fine is that he's apparently made a whole mess of offensive jokes on Twitter over the years. And see, these are just terrible. Not because they're the most offensive things he could have said, but because they're just dumb and unoriginal. Jon Stewart was so great, and they got this guy with the lame "fat chick" jokes to replace him? It's disgusting. Throw in that slightly vague Holocaust joke, and, well, things aren't looking too bright for this guy at all.

Miley Cyrus
is so delightful sometimes, just because she's such a little mystery. So often she makes us think that all she's got up in that head of hers is air and marijuana smoke and crafting ideas, but every now and then she'll pop up with something thoughtful and nice and just impressive. And that's precisely what she did when she spoke to Time about the absolutely ridiculous new religious freedom law in Indiana:

I lived a life where I had to be something every day and had to be a character, and it wasn’t necessarily who I wanted to be. And now I’ve dedicated my life to being whoever it is that I want to be, and also constantly learning and evolving.

That’s what’s wrong with [supporters of the Indiana law]—they’re not choosing to live that way. And if you don’t choose to live that way, you’re not going to last in this generation because we are overtaking you. They are dinosaurs, and they are dying off. We are the new generation, and with that will come so much.

We are moving forward. As much as we get distracted by stupid laws that make us feel like we’re regressing, we’re not. We are moving forward because it’s our turn as young people. It’s a new rights movement.

Yes, Miley. All the yeses. Please continue spreading your this wisdom to the masses, because goodness knows they desperately need it.

Scott Eastwood is handsome and charming and lots of folks -- yours truly included -- really hoped that he'd be the articulate, intelligent man that his father, Clint Eastwood happens to be, but this under-the-radar interview with co-star Britt Robertson (of "Under the Dome" fame, for all you TV-watchers) has us maybe thinking otherwise. 

In the clip, Scott and Britt joke around about their on-screen chemistry, but claim it's strictly for the camera, saying that they're like "brother and sister." They continue their banter by saying "brothers and sisters who shower together," but don't worry ... it's supposed to be OK, because they were filming in the South and, according to them, incest is welcomed down there. (?!) 

Don't know how you all feel about it, but come on ... jokes are jokes, and this is obviously a joke (albeit a bad joke) but maybe those from the South -- or, more importantly, those who've experienced incest -- might not think it's too funny.

Katy Perry has either pulled an epic April Fool's joke over on us by pulling a funky wig over her head ... or she really has done what she's said and pulled a "Kris Jenner," instead. 

Verdict: Love it. Love it, like, to the moon and back. Even if it's not real -- which is possible, because today -- it's something she should seriously consider down the road, because damn, does she look good. 

Love It or Leave It -- Katy's Legitimate/Illegitimate Locks:

  • Love it!
  • Leave it.

Jamie Dornan
is best known, of course, for being that super creepy, totally shady Christian Grey character in the "50 Shades of Grey" movie, but what you might not know is that he plays another unsavory character in a television show called "The Fall." In that show, he plays a serial killer. And, wouldn't you know it, he's one of those types that just has to do things to research his roles, no matter how sketchy or possibly illegal those things may be:

"The first series, I did do a couple of things to try to get inside [his mind]. On the tube, which is our underground system ... Can we get arrested for this? Hold on ... this is a really bad reveal: I, like, followed a woman off the train one day to see what it felt like to pursue someone like that. It felt kind of exciting, in a really sort of dirty way. I'm sort of not proud of myself. But I do honestly think I learned something from it, because I've obviously never done any of that. It was intriguing and interesting to enter that process of 'what are you following her for?' and 'what are you trying to find out?'"

Some actors don't realize this, so we should probably just go ahead and spell it out: there's a way to "enter that process" without following some poor unknowing woman, and it's called "acting." See, all you have to do is use your brain to think about things, to consider how one might feel under certain circumstances, and then use your imagination to flesh everything out. That's how some actors can manage to very believably portray characters that are nothing like them, because they use their brains. Anthony Hopkins, for instance, did not have to actually murder someone and wear his victim's face to be good in "Silence of the Lambs." It's all pretend.

Here's your girl, Khloe Kardashian, being super Kardashian-y and posting very revealing photos on Instagram. There's cleavage nearly all the way down to the belly button, and ... is she actually showing off part of her crotch? Is she wearing some nude kind of underwear or is that the upper genitals we're seeing here? Either way, right there it is, so please look at it. Please. You knew going into this that it was the whole point of the photo anyway.

"Some people were saying, 'The cancer is probably back'. And they were accusing me of every eating disorder. I thought to myself, 'God, if someone really thought I had an eating disorder, what a horrible way to approach it.' [However, after continuing the cancer medication], I started noticing that I was eating a lot, but not gaining weight at all. I was concerned. ... I'm sorry that some people think I'm disgustingly skinny, as they put it, but there's nothing I can do. I'm lucky that I even have the type of cancer that reacts to the medicine. ... I look in the mirror and it's hard for me. I am really thin. I want to look fit and beautiful and sexy, and I can't." 

--Giuliana Rancic on her seemingly ever-shrinking frame, and wow ... if this doesn't break your heart a bit, then you might want to check your pulse a little bit to make sure you have one. 

You can rag on a person for their ill-advised comments about a woman's hair, but it crosses the line when you start saying they're "disgustingly skinny." How is that any different than saying someone's "disgustingly fat'? Here's a tip: it's not. You can have opinions for whatever your preference, whether curvy or slender, but calling someone "disgustingly thin" or "disgustingly fat" isn't an opinion ... it's called hate, and ain't nobody got time for that.

So hey, that thing where Avril Lavigne has been kind of missing for the past several months, suffering from some mysterious health issues that she wanted to keep so private that she only disclosed that vague information to a fan in a private message on Twitter? Some people claimed that she was in rehab, some people claimed she was pregnant, and some other people claimed that she was going through a divorce from Chad Kroeger ... none of it was true. No, it turns out that Avril was actually suffering from a real bad case of Lyme disease this whole time. Enlightening and also terrifying, right?

It took Avril "months" of feeling bad before she was finally diagnosed:

"I could barely eat, and when we went to the pool, I had to leave and go lie in bed. My friends asked, 'What's wrong?' I didn't know."

Seriously, it was bad:

"I had no idea a bug bite could do this. I was bedridden for five months ... I felt like I couldn't breathe, I couldn't talk and I couldn't move. I thought I was dying."

Her husband (who is apparently still her husband, for what it's worth) helped take care of her when he could, and so did her mom, and now she's "80 percent better" and planning on releasing a new single this very month. And, in a way, this horrific disease helped her out a little:

"This was a wake-up call. I really just want to enjoy life from here on out."

Oh, Avril. You sure can be annoying, but nobody wants you to suffer like this. Heal up all the way and get right back to being your peppy, adorable self, all right? And seriously, keep an eye out for those bugs.
