Kendrick Lamar’s spark of a single, “Alright,” has become an official pick-me-up anthem for black people. In a powerful moment on Sunday, students at a protest near Cleveland State University used it as a rallying cry against police brutality.
Welcome to Midweek Madness, where we think about Reese Witherspoon’s husband for the first time in two years, rewatch the dashcam footage of her arrest, and keep repeating “I am a U.S. citizen” in her voice while thinking, “You know what? I sort of wish she had won the Oscar for Wild.” This week: Julia Roberts and… »
Eva Longoria wears glasses. Eva Longoria wears glasses. Eva Longoria wears glasses. This is something you should repeat over and over until you believe it. If you don’t, Eva Longoria will not only come after you, she will not rest until you have been completely destroyed. Eva Longoria is light, Eva Longoria is love,… »
Apparently today is “National Lipstick Day.” “National Lipstick Day” is not a real holiday, but it’s a great excuse to look at some vintage cosmetics. Let’s get inspired. »
Pope Francis’s September visit to the United States will include a joint address to both houses of Congress, which means means Congress has less than two months to figure out how to behave around the Pope. Somebody get Henry Higgins on the phone so we don’t look like a passel of complete yahoos! »
Australia, known for dangerous animals such as the inland taipan (the world’s most venomous snake) and drop bears (real) is facing an animal crisis that’s been building for the past 200 years.

Unfortunately, the most convenient option often conflicts with basic etiquette, which dictates that you consider other factors in the mix, like the environment and who will be around to… »
Mickey Mouse has been playing games in Europe. A recent investigation found that Disneyland Paris has been purposely overcharging British and German visitors, presumably in an attempt to double down on that that whole “French people are rude” thing. »
Jill Scott has that unmistakable big brass voice, and it’s even eerier to listen to now, just months after watching a biopic about blues legend Bessie Smith.

Obscure clothing brand Lucky 13 filed a copyright lawsuit against Taylor Swift last year, accusing her of selling merchandise that rips off their design. The company is now asking for risqué promotional photos of Swift to prove their point.
The New York Times has a story today about Donald Trump’s behavior during depositions in the many lawsuits he’s party to. You’ll be shocked to learn that he lies, bloviates, exaggerates, and generally behaves like a cranky orange toddler in need of a time-out. In one particularly bizarre incident, a female lawyer… »
A day after Jane Birkin publicly asked Hermès to remove her name from Birkin bags made with crocodile skin, the company has released a statement saying that they’re looking into how the animals are treated.
