Paula Patton tried to fry chicken and… well… it scarred the internet. Here’s the thing about fried chicken – I already know that no matter what, I will suck at making it so it’s never going to be something I cook myself. My favourite kind of fried chicken is Chinese style – deep fried and stuffed with sticky rice. My second favourite fried chicken is Korean fried chicken. If you’ve never had either, hurry and live your life. (Cele|bitchy) 


Idris Elba is revealing what Meghan Markle requested to be played at her wedding and Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” has never not gotten people on the dance floor in my experience. It is an all-time mood lifter, party-starter. (Dlisted) 

Tracee Ellis Ross’s red Oscar dress was not the best style showcase we’ve seen from her but I do LOVE this outfit she wore at PaleyFest and Yara Shahidi and Marsai Martin showed up in fire looks too. (Go Fug Yourself) 

People are sharing their controversial food opinions on Reddit. So here’s mine: I don’t like brownies. I think they’re overrated. They’re too dense (please I am not interested in your non-dense brownie recipe, no matter how non-dense you claim they are, I promise they will still be too dense for me) and too sweet. Also…and this one will get me cancelled, I’m sure – I also don’t like tiramisu. To even things up though, I also routinely trash Chinese “desserts”. Like the red bean soup served at the end of a meal. I grew up with it and it’s gross. And for whatever reason, Chinese bakeries always put grapes INSIDE cakes. This is disgusting. (Pajiba) 


I know there’s been a lot of food talk already in this space today but I can’t help it because now I feel seen. If you’ve been following this site over the years, you know my love of Cheetos. And that I will put Cheeto dust and crumbs on ANYTHING. Mashed potatoes. Mac and cheese. Ramen. Fried rice. Congee. Cheetos go with everything – and Eater is confirming this by suggesting you add Cheetos to salad. I’ve done this. And it’s amazing. Like a bean salad topped with Cheetos? You will feel like you’ve won something, I swear. Here’s another suggestion – Cheetos and baked green bean casserole. I’m telling you! (Eater)
