Last week we had a neuroscientist on The Social who was telling us about brain research and why sometimes, when you think your brain isn’t working, it’s actually doing exactly what it should be doing. The brain is a great editor. Our brains are constantly receiving so much information, it makes no sense to remember all of it all the time. So our brain sorts through what it needs to retain and makes sure that it has space to bring in more. Basically this really smart dude was telling us that when we have what we call a brain fart, like forgetting what you were doing the minute you leave the room, it’s not because you’re stupid, it’s just your brain filing through things and keep itself organised. His name is Henning Beck and his book is called Scatterbrain. What’s my point? I have a great memory for celebrities and not a great memory for not-celebrities. I could tell you exact date and time Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston announced their divorce (January 7, 2005 at around 5pm PST) but I cannot tell you about the dude who lied about his kid in a balloon? I remember this vaguely, maybe? But there is no way if I ever met the man who tried to scam the authorities so that he presumably could become a reality show dad that I’d recall the incident. I wouldn’t even bother to google him. Am I the only one? Why is he out here talking about this again?! (Dlisted) 

I don’t love the dress that Keke Palmer is wearing. It’s not all that interesting to me. I do, however, love how she’s selling it, and I love that she loves it. That’s half of it, you know? (Go Fug Yourself) 

David Harbour and Lily Allen, the couple no one saw coming, are now Instagram official. And it’s his IG, not hers. My takeaway here though is that they are the kind of people who dress up when they go to Disney. I wouldn’t have predicted that either, at least not about him. (Cele|bitchy) 

I forgot about this SNL A Girls’ Halloween sketch. And now I miss Vanessa Bayer. Also you know what’s underrated? Cecily Strong’s drunk voice. She’s great at that voice. Here’s when, again, I talk about how we don’t talk enough about the fact that Cecily is the VIP of SNL. (OMG Blog) 

How long has R Kelly been in jail for? What matters is that he’s there. And it’s not exactly a spa. I don’t know that anybody is sad about this? He couldn’t go to court because of his infected toe. (TMZ)
