> George Clooney unexpected­ly got married to Amal Alamuddin and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie surprising­ly tied the knot “Whatever.

> Korexions & Klarifikaz­ions 1) Yes, it is true 2014’s most idiotic new word "bae" translates to "poop" in my native language. No, it’s not true it makes me giggle uncontroll­ably every time someone says it. Or every time I read it. Or think it. 2) While the past 12 months gave us Oscar selfies, belfies, #JustWokeUp selfies, funeral selfies, #AfterSex selfies, toilet selfies and even a few elfies, there is no proof sealfies exist and I was wrong to suggest it. 3) Kim Jong Un’s haircut does most definitely not resemble “something I once saw on a third-tier ’90s boy band member.” A thousand apologies. #IWasDrunk. #Don’tHurtMe. #SethRogenS­ucks. 4) It is correct that I didn’t listen to Serial or watch The Affair and Boyhood. But after some serious soul-searching and some time to reconsider, I now have to grudgingly admit . . . that I still don’t want to. 5) Yes, mom, sulking over not being invited to Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka’s wedding was, in retrospect, a complete waste of time.
