Chadwick Boseman would have turned 44 yesterday. Marvel posted a tribute to him, as did many others on social media. I just watched Black Panther again – for the 23rd or 24th time – and his vitality, his charisma, his dignity… it’s just so hard to believe that he’s gone. The Fug Girls have reposted a tribute to his presence and his talent, and part of it was what he gave us on the red carpet. The King came with all the looks. (Go Fug Yourself) 


Laverne Cox experienced a hate crime this weekend and she shared the story to remind people that even though she’s famous, that doesn’t mean she’s not targeted by assholes and ignorance. She was with a friend who stood up for her – and I’d like to believe that there are many more of us who, if we witnessed this, would have stood up for her in the moment too. More of us than those who’d do something like this, so brazenly, like it’s their God-given right. (Dlisted) 

I clicked on this article because of the photo that was used – an excellent choice: Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Pitt in matching haircuts. But the piece itself is about things we used to do in the 80s and 90s that we don’t do anymore. And whether we miss it. You know what I don’t miss? Being worried about missing a phone call. Yes, you youths reading this. Once upon a time, we couldn’t leave the house when we were waiting for someone to call us back. (Pajiba) 

Did the British royal family know about Meghan Markle’s op-ed and what she revealed it in last week ahead of time? They’re not saying. But the courtiers are also not out there in the Daily Mail talking about being “blindsided”. How…restrained of them. (Cele|bitchy) 

I couldn’t wait to read How Debbie Allen Gets it Done. Because Debbie Allen has a LOT going on! (The Cut)
