    Did you hear? The celebrity profile is dead. This week, we take a look at the state of the celebrity profile, which despite some truly bad recent profiles, is not actually dead. It's not even on life support. But celebrity profiles have changed. No longer content to exist as mere fluff pieces, a new generation of profile writers are bringing sharp insight and cultural commentary into the celebrity profile, which some celebrities don't seem to appreciate (looking at you, Bradley Cooper). Join us as we discuss all things celebrity profile, and what they have to say about us and our current pop cultural moment.
