Lupita Nyong'o and Janelle Monáe set Twitter ablaze following the Met Gala and it was for more than their fire outfits. People, and possibly me, are convinced there could be a romance brewing between them, especially since there are rumours that Janelle and her frequent professional and personal partner, Tessa Thompson, have broken up. Full Story

This is true devotion to the theme. Janelle Monae has always honoured this carpet, in the most literal, personal ways. She is, more than almost anyone else, an artist whose clothing is an extension of her personality, and of the vibe she’s embodying. Right? Like it’s never a joke for her, even though it’s full of fun and humour, somewhere Janelle Monae is one breast-sized blinking eye, and that may seem like a drug-induced musing but I am stone-cold sober and I’m pretty sure she is too. Full Story

Kacey Musgraves won Album of the Year. Lainey and I were gushing over Golden Hour all night. We both love the album. I was defending her performance of “Rainbow” to friends over text because while it did feel like it dragged during the broadcast, “Rainbow” is a gorgeous song with a beautiful message. Full Story

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
