Taylor Swift gets great bangs, begging the question, which stars actually pull them off?

We here at EW have some pretty strong opinions about bangs. In fact, infuriatingly bad bangs on an otherwise beautiful actress can ruin a perfectly good movie or television show for us. (My personal vote goes to Courteney Cox in Scream 3, whose short, choppy bangs made the horror flick just about unwatchable. Well that, and the movie is terrible.)

Still, we’re not opposed to the idea of bangs as a whole. In fact, we welcome it. (Please reserve all “That’s what she said”s for the comments section below, PopWatchers.) So imagine our delight when Taylor Swift opted to go back to having bangs (she pulled them off way back in 2009) and tweeted a photo of her new locks (see above) and cut straight to the point, “Got a haircut.” READ FULL STORY

Essential Info: Jeremy Renner Edition

Here at PopWatch, we understand that some information is important and some isn’t. But we also believe that some unimportant information can be essential: For example, do you need to know that Jeremy Renner grew up with a pygmy goat named Sugar? No. But like us, you want to. It’s with that in mind that we launch a new recurring PopWatch category, Essential Info.

We begin with more of what you want to know about the Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol star from his fascinating Details cover story:

• He and his best friend, actor Kristoffer Winters, renovate homes, which Renner sometimes lives in while they’re under construction. Sometimes, the homes have no working electricity or indoor plumbing

• He was a professional makeup artist

• He was starstruck when he met… Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan

Bye, George! Jason Alexander pulls a reverse Matt Damon and sports some new hair

One can only begin to imagine how Elaine would react to this. A photo of Seinfeld actor Jason Alexander has hit the web today, and people everywhere are screaming, “Get out!” in response. Alexander, who was arguably the biggest bald icon in the ’90s besides George’s idol Dennis Franz, is now sporting a (still-not-quite-full) head of hair. (Don’t worry guys, despite this loss, you’ve still got Matt Damon… for now.)

The 52-year-old star debuted his new look, something he’s been considering for some time now, at the 27th Annual C.S.A. Artios Awards in Beverly Hills this week. Alexander again used his Twitter to explain his new image: READ FULL STORY

Kim Kardashian -- recently named 2011's Most Annoying Celebrity -- is definitely a doll, right?

I was just watching a clip of tonight’s episode of The CW’s H8r — in which Kim Kardashian confronts a rather salty woman who openly hates her (pictured) — and kept imagining what would happen if someone suddenly reached over and attempted to flick Kim’s doll eyes shut. I’ve been fantasizing about this for months. Would she continue to smile placidly and caress her synthetic doll hair? Would the doll lashes snap off? Would she cross over to an even darker element and become the Kim Kardashian Old Navy Robot? Would she die? Because dolls are supposed to die when you do that. READ FULL STORY

'Whitney' series premiere: The jokes feel not-so-fresh, but is there hope for this show?

My favorite part of tonight’s Whitney debut from title star Whitney Cummings came really early on when she says in voice over, “Whitney is taped in front of a live studio audience. You heard me.” It made me think of Reginald Veljohnson making a similar announcement over the sax-heavy end credits of Family Matters, only with a twist. That little wink gave me hope that this might be the type of savvy, self-aware sitcom that’s able to lightly mock the laugh-tracked, multi-camera format that NBC seems to have mostly abandoned.

But that wasn’t the only throwback. I’m sure this show wants to entertain while cleverly shining a light on the modern relationship and the evolving differences between men and women. The most important thing for Whitney is to feel current, relevant. Unfortunately, the humor here felt tired, very Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus. The whole time, I kept expecting a joke about a toilet seat, and whether it had been left up. READ FULL STORY

When Boy Met Curl: The mane lessons of 'Boy Meets World'

I watched Boy Meets World  for two reasons.

First, it was a show that made me feel like I wasn’t alone in life. Like Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), the show’s protagonist, I didn’t have the answers growing up. He muddled his way through high school, puberty, friendships and sex, just like me. Amidst a sea of sitcom Smart-Alecks and Sassers, he was an Everyman, instantly relatable to me on every level. When it first aired, my takeaway from every episode was that nobody gets an A in the course of life, no matter how hard they try. But even more importantly — especially for someone like me who worried about grades all the time — was that in real life, you don’t even get grades. You just live life as best you can, and everyone is doing the same. Now, whenever I am fortunate enough to come across an episode online or on TV, I smile for a half hour, a reminder that it’s all going to be okay. Maybe not great, maybe not even what I wanted, but alright.

Really though, Boy Meets World had a bigger meaning to me: Hair. READ FULL STORY

Joe 2, and they are still freakin’ huge. (Unlike this photo, which we can legally only show at this size. Click here for the real deal.READ FULL STORY

L'Oreal ads featuring flawless Julia Roberts and Christy Turlington banned in UK

How flawless is too flawless? That’s a question the Advertising Standards Authority, the UK’s independent advertising watchdog, has answered for L’Oreal, which has come under fire for two magazine ads — one featuring Julia Roberts for Lancôme’s Teint Miracle foundation and one featuring Christy Turlington for The Eraser foundation by Maybelline. Jo Swinson, a Member of Parliament, complained to the ASA that the ads were misleading due to excessive airbrushing. The ASA banned the ads from running again in their current form on the grounds that L’Oreal was “unable to provide us with sufficient evidence to prove that the ad images accurately illustrated what effect the products could achieve, and that the images had not been exaggerated by digital post production techniques.” Though L’Oreal provided photos of Roberts and Turlington on the red carpet to show their natural beauty and detailed what post production techniques were used on the ad images, it did not supply the original shots of Roberts and Turlington before those techniques were employed for comparison.
