I’m convinced that Janelle Monae is a time-travelling superhuman from 2067. She is too damn cool for us mere mortals of 2018. She also loves telling futuristic fantasies and sci-fi fairy tales through her music, just like a future space traveler would.    Look at this picture Janelle posted from the Vanity Fair Oscar party with Deray, Regina Hall, Rashida Jones, Gabrielle Union, Donald Glover, Lena Waithe and Chuck Lightning. Full Story

We begin this week’s podcast with a discussion about what Duana and Megan Fox have in common. There’s a scientific name for it too – even though the name sounds ridiculously made up and not real at all: Brachydactyly Type D, pronounced “bracky-dact-ily”. Come ON!  From there, we move to Encino Man, Brendan Fraser. Full Story

Janelle Monae joined Tessa Thompson at the Annihilation premiere last week. They also went to the Black Panther premiere together. For a while now there’s been speculation as to whether or not they’re dating. And a lot of people who really want them to be dating. Full Story

The official dress code of the Black Panther premiere was royal. The carpet was purple. Attendees were told to dress in their majestic best and my GOD, did they deliver. I don’t mean to be extra here but in a year when the people most of the world recognize as Royals (yes, the British ones) will welcome their first black Princess (or Duchess, whatever) and we’ve already seen her face her share of racist bullsh-t, a red carpet like this is radical. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

“We come in peace. But we mean business,” is what Janelle Monae said just before introducing Kesha’s performance last night, calling for Time’s Up on the music industry’s abuse of power. She also tweeted this… A total of 90.  Read Full Intro

It’s post-Halloween so that means the holiday onslaught has begun. Lainey has probably already bought all her Christmas presents because she’s insane (Lainey: it’s true, I finished my Christmas shopping a couple of weeks ago).
