Kathleen here. Lainey is all about ending period stigma. Knowing that, I don’t think she’ll mind if I tell you that she’s dealing with some period f-ckery today which is why I’m stepping in for What Else. No shame. No stigma.
Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are now in the ‘who gets what’ phase of their breakup. Apparently, they adopted their pet pig Piggy Smalls (GREAT name) together but since Ariana paid for her, she gets to keep her. The ring is a different story. Pete paid for that himself (SHOCKING) and she gave it back. I care more about Piggy Smalls than I do about the ring. I think about this often. If my dude and I ever break up, there will be a full-out ugly custody battle for our dog, Apollo Creed. Technically, I paid for him but his dad loves him a lot. I’ll be in for a fight. (Dlisted)
Jada Pinkett Smith’s underrated Facebook Watch series Red Table Talk is still going. On it, she gets very candid. In newly released clips from an upcoming episode, Jada’s husband Will joins the conversation to talk about the low-point of their marriage – when Jada cried for 45 days straight and Will was “failing miserably” at their marriage. What did Will do!? Willow and Jada’s mother-in-law were also present for this conversation. I mean, that sounds incredibly awkward but this is the Smiths we’re talking about. It’s probably still going to be hella entertaining. (Cele|bitchy)
Here are the rest of the looks from the ELLE Women in Hollywood event. I think I love every single outfit except for Kiera Knightley’s. I’m obsessed with Gaga’s oversized suit. She looks like an Olsen Twin styled by Law Roach. That’s a compliment. (Go Fug Yourself)
I just got shamed by a younger co-worker for not knowing about ASMR videos. She inadvertently called me old. She clearly didn’t get the memo that I am SO YOUNG. Anyway, ASMR videos are basically people reacting to visual or audio stimuli, while whispering? I think? They are weird as f-ck but celebs are doing them now and I just spent too much time watching someone cut soap (surprisingly soothing) and Janet Jackson whisper into a microphone (also soothing.) I think I’m obsessed now. (Pajiba)
Offset spent two months planning Cardi B’s birthday present. This is the kind of birthday preparation I expect from my partner. I don’t expect 100 carats of diamonds or for him to drop six figures though. Offset also gave Cardi a Lambo. Are these also apology gifts? (TMZ)
The Hate U Give opens wide on Friday. If you haven’t seen it yet, you’re going right? Amandla Stenberg is doing the press rounds and she was on The Daily Show With Trevor Noah talking about how she knew the film would be a success based on the number of “white people crying after.” LOL. Seriously, you will cry though. Bring tissues. (Vulture)
