Fire up the morning with this footage, and you will feel as though you just mainlined 17 espressos and also five pounds of coke!! I have seen few things more terrifying than a disheveled Roseanne ripping a butt, groaning, wincing, covering her face, and then bellowing:
The 2018 BET Awards took place Sunday night in Los Angeles, right smack dab in the middle of Pride month. The looks were strong all around, but no one did it like Janelle Monae. My girl dropped her characteristically monochrome suits to positively and literally embody the rainbow.

To our ongoing delight, Janelle Monáe’s star continues to rise beyond the music world, and last night she made a stop at Conan to discuss her Oscar-nominated films Moonlight and Hidden Figures.
