Shaquille O'Neal has a LinkedIn Profile, and it's amazing

I swear that I’m telling you the facts: Shaquille O’Neal has a LinkedIn profile.

Over the weekend, the Internet freaked out when it was discovered that the Big Aristotle joined the business networking site. It’s great that he did, because his profile is top notch.  (Note: Turner Sports confirmed to Slate that the profile is real; Shaq is an NBA analyst for Turner.)

Unfortunately, most of Shaq’s profile has since been hidden; luckily, Mashable has screenshots of gems such as “CEO, President” of “Alot [sic] of different companies, Inc.” The Barry University grad also sells himself with this description: “My best asset is that I am proven to lead teams to championships,” he writes. “I mean multiple championships.”

Matthew McConaughey HAS to return for 'Magic Mike' sequel

The McConaissance was a wonderful thing for pop culture. It brought us Mud, and True Detective, and of course, culminated in Mr. Alright, Alright, Alright finally earning an Oscar for his work in Dallas Buyers Club.

But are fans of Matthew McConaughey about to experience a downside to the actor’s recent success? The Channing Tatum-penned Magic Mike sequel, Magic Mike XXL, just received a release date of July 3, 2015. If things Work Out As They Should, it should be a wonderful two hours of G-strings, ’80s songs, and showcases of Tatum-created dance moves (ideally with less Alex Pettyfer and more Zac Efron). But what if recent Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey decides he’s above returning for the sequel? (A rep for the actor didn’t respond to EW’s request for comment.) READ FULL STORY

MTV Movie Awards: Here's the drinking game

It’s time for the biggest award show of the year!

Not really, of course. The MTV Movie Awards isn’t so much a legitimate award show as it is a way for stars to plug their big summer movies by trying to make a “viral” moment happen without any backlash. But, any award show that wants to give Channing Tatum a Trailblazer award can’t be all bad. Fingers crossed the inevitable look-back montage includes a little She’s The Man.

Tonight, make like the stars and imbibe a little during the ceremony. It can only make the unique combination of Conan O’Brien, Ice Cube, and Rihanna funnier. READ FULL STORY

All the compliments to Beyonce in her 'Out' cover story, ranked

Beyonce-cover-of-Out.jpg

By now, we all know that Beyoncé woke up flawless. And, apparently, that lyric isn’t an exaggeration.

Bey’s on the latest cover of Out magazine, and Out magazine really wants us to know that Beyoncé is great. Flawless, even! Although the cover story’s author wasn’t able to snag an in-person interview with the Queen, he did get to talk to her team — all of whom had nothing but glowing things to say about their boss. No, really: The overarching theme of the profile is “Beyoncé is perfect.” (Given the subject matter, maybe this shouldn’t be a surprise.)

Throwback Thursday: O-Town's reunion and the 7 dirtiest boy band songs -- VIDEO

Word broke earlier this week that O-Town — the One Direction of the aughts, except less cute and not nearly as famous — is plotting a reunion. (Okay, an almost-reunion; frontman Ashley Parker Angel, the group’s answer to Harry Styles/Clone High guest star extraordinaire, is apparently out of the band. So much for “all or nothing at all.”)

This is great news, primarily for one reason: It gives us all a chance to reexamine “Liquid Dreams,” which has to be the grossest thing to come out of the late ’90s/early ’00s boy band boom. (Besides Chris Kirkpatrick’s hair.)

'Troop Beverly Hills': Phyllis Nefler's Unawarded Patches

Troop-Beverly-Hills.jpg

The 1989 Shelley Long luxury vehicle Troop Beverly Hills turns 25 today, which means 1) You’re even older than you thought, and 2) It’s high time Phyllis Nefler — troop leader to us all — receives the (likely waist-cinching) sash of Wilderness Girl patches she has always deserved. Join me on this stroll down memory lane before those stinkin’ Red Feathers swarm in like poisonous water moccasins and corrupt the route!

The Anne Shirley Commemorative Puffed Sleeves patch:

'Glee' 100th episode: Do you know what HASN'T happened on the show? QUIZ

How many times can you go to Regionals?

The Glee kids hit the big 100th episode milestone this week, which means it’s time for a look back. Remember when Rachel thought she was pregnant? Remember when Brittany had a web series titled Fondue for Two? Remember when there was a shooting at McKinley? NEVER FORGET.

Even a casual viewer of the show knows this musical dramedy goes through plot faster than the Glee kids go through crushes on each other. We don’t know what’s in store for the McKinley kids as they all become Broadway stars in New York (RIP, Smash!), but we do know there’s very little the show hasn’t already explored.

Below, test your memory about all the crazy things that have happened at one point or another — and see if you can spot the few things that never actually took place. Good luck!

Which plot points haven’t happened — yet? READ FULL STORY

On eating clay and believing in trees: The best of Shailene Woodley's nature-centric wisdom

By now, we all know about Shailene Woodley’s quirky, environmentally-friendly tendencies — she gathers her water from fresh springs when she can; she brought Jimmy Fallon a bag of herbs last week on The Tonight ShowBut that’s only the beginning.

Woodley is more magical nymph than Hollywood starlet; even Jennifer Lawrence’s relatable clumsiness can’t hold a candle to Shailene’s lovable kookiness. So after reading the Divergent star’s latest awesome interview, we decided to compile the Shailene-iest quotes she’s ever given. Check out what the offbeat actress has said about eating clay (yes, for real) and giving up Instagram below:

'Mean Girls' characters: Where are they now?

MEAN-GIRLS

This is worse than wearing sweatpants: Mean Girls isn’t getting a Tina Fey-penned sequel!

Despite some hopeful speculation from fans recently, Fey confirmed the news to Extra on Wednesday, saying, “We’re coming up next month on the 10-year anniversary of the original movie… We’re going to see if there’s any way to get everyone together, but not a movie, sadly. We’re all past high school age.” (Mean Girls 2, the 2011 TV movie sequel with a whole new group of girls, is best not mentioned.)

Like any good twenty-something, I love the movie, but the “no sequel” news is totally for the best. There’s no way people wouldn’t be disappointed by whatever they came up with, and now, fans can just continue to watch and love the original as the perfect high school satire that it is. For those that would like a little more, all hope isn’t lost: Fey is directing her energy towards a possible Mean Girls musical (which she told EW about last year in her EW Interview).

Since Fey has made it clear we aren’t going to get Regina and Gretchen’s High School Reunion, just for fun I went ahead and pictured where the whole fetch gang is now, 10 years post-high school. READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelor' finale: 'Whoo! I'm glad I didn't pick her!'

Oh man, rose lovers. I mean, where to begin? So… many… thinks… about Juan Pablo’s “adventure” and his “decision” between the two “ladies”… But I don’t want to get ahead of myself here. We’ve still got a whole After the Final Rose to get through, which will no doubt include lots of tears and tension — and, of course, the reveal of the next Bachelorette! (Please let it be Molly….) Stay tuned for my full recap of the finale and ATFR later tonight, but if you’re still reeling from what went down at the Proposal Platform and need a safe space to vent, hit the comments section below.
