Talk about a makeover!
It’s been 75 years since the Archie Comics were first published, and we guess the peeps behind the beloved comic books thought it was time for a change!
The comics are being rebooted into a series called Archie #1 which will bring Archie and his Riverdale friends into the 21st century and that’s not the only thing that’s changing!
Another change that’s coming is Archie’s look!

The titular character has always been a red-headed nerdy type but the latest image from artist Fiona Staples has Archie looking like a super hot strawberry blonde!
We’re super curious to see how this style change will affect the writer Mark Waid‘s new story — but we’re sure it will make the characters Veronica Lodge and Betty Cooper want Archie that much more!
This infamous love triangle is about to get REALLY steamy we think!!!
You’ll be able to buy these new issues on July 8th — which isn’t as far away as it sounds!
In the meanwhile check out a photo of a cover featuring Archie’s newfound hotness down (below) !!

A teacher in France is taking Facebook to court over a painted vajay.
Per the social network’s policy, they suspended the man’s account after he posted a picture of a bare vagina on his page.
Now the man is demanding about k in damages for being censored!

The thing is, the image is far from what one might call smut. It’s an 1866 painting by Gustave Courbet called L’Origine du Monde, or The Origin Of The World.
The NSFW(?) original (see it below) is considered fine art and is currently on display at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris (where performance artists occasionally bare their own “origins” in front of it).
The teacher argues that Facebook punishing him for posting the image is a violation of his free speech.
Facebook’s immediate response to the complaint — made in a French court — was to claim that legal disputes with them could only be held in California.
But Paris’ High Court has now ruled against FB, deciding that it does indeed have jurisdiction — even calling Facebook’s legal clause “abusive.”
The teacher’s attorney Stephane Cotineau applauded the decision, saying:
“This decision will create jurisprudence for other social media and other internet giants who use their being headquartered abroad, mainly in the United States, to attempt to evade French law.”
Now the trial will go ahead on May 21st — in France.

The third time is definitely NOT the charm for Suge Knight.
The rapper was hospitalized for a third time in one month after appearing in court to face murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run charges.
Suge told a Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Monday that he had been receiving inadequate medical care since being jailed in January over the alleged hit-and-run death of his friend, Terry Carter.
The 49-year-old said he had been suffering from blindness in one eye and only 15 percent vision in the other, and had lost 35 pounds while in custody.

Suge also stated he had difficulty comprehending the proceedings.
In his court appearance, Suge told the judge that he fired the lawyers present and wanted to represent himself. While Suge tried to speak out during the proceedings, the judge apparently admonished him for doing so, which made Suge curse under his breath.
The judge wanted to transfer the Death Row Records founder’s cases, but Suge had already been hospitalized again.
Another hearing has been set for March 9th, so we’ll keep you posted on any updates.

The world was shocked and saddened to learn that Jon Stewart was retiring!
It’s truly the end of an era. Sad face.
Now that we know Stewart is leaving, who is gonna take over for him?
Word on the street is Joel McHale was in the running as a replacement!
But what does Joel think? He said:
“I don’t think I’m smart enough to do the job. I think I come off as being smart. But deep down I’m really not. Plus, I’ve just signed on for two more years at E!, and I’m having a ball on that show. And E! has been incredibly good.”
Ha! Sounds like McHale is a big fan of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

He then explains how his show, The Soup, is nothing like The Daily Show, saying:
“Jon Stewart deals with large, very important issues. We obsess about the weirdos on ‘The Bachelor’ who do ghost adventures and look for Bigfoot. So I think the show would not be up to the intellectual standards that everyone is looking for.”
Yeah, we can totally see how Joel’s brand of news is a bit different than Jon Stewart’s.
So now we’re left crawling in the dark, feeling around for a new Daily Show host.
NBC‘s show Heroes was one of those rare TV shows that was really really super good. For a while at least…
Anyway, like all good things — it eventually had to end.
But that doesn’t mean good things can’t come back again!!
NBC is bringing the show back as a 13-episode miniseries called Heroes Reborn.
The show’s original creator Tim Kring is on board, but there is a new face joining the show…

Zachary Levi from Chuck!
If you haven’t seen it, Chuck is about Levi playing a man who is basically forced into becoming a secret agent. So it hopefully won’t be much of a stretch for Levi to play a HERO!
That’s all the info that’s been released so far since everything else is under wraps.
We can’t wait until Heroes comes back!!
What do U think of them casting Zachary Levi?? Let us know in the comments!
Well this is certainly surprising, Rush Limbaugh saying something awful!
Just kidding, we’re not even 0.000001% surprised by this statement.
The rumors swirling about the future of the James Bond franchise show that Idris Elba could be the next actor to play the iconic spy.
[ Related: Idris Elba In Line To Be the Next James Bond?!? ]
Which is so freakin’ AWESOME and would be absolutely brilliant casting.
Except Rush doesn’t think so. He said:
“James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is, was. But now Sony is suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Britain, rather than a white from Scotland. But that’s not who James Bond is and I know it’s racist to probably point this out.”
We just cannot even with that whole statement.
But wait, that’s not all he said!
He also went on to say that this casting choice is equal to Hollywood having George Clooney and Kate Hudson play President Barack and Michelle Obama.
Except that the Obamas are the first black President and First Lady of the United States, something remarkable and historically important given the country’s history.
Meanwhile, being white isn’t an essential quality to James Bond. Being suave is. And Idris has that quality DOWN!
Besides, Daniel Craig isn’t Scottish either, and that — wait, why are we bothering trying to have a rational discussion with Rush Limbaugh?? LOLz!
