Rest in peace, Kalief Browder (1993-2015). Plus our thoughts on this week’s fashion, beauty, and entertainment happenings.
Plus new Florence + the Machine, pizza topped with pizza, and manic pixie nightmare girls.
Plus Cher continues to be the best, people steal things on the internet, and comic book news.
Plus Nicki and Bey, saluting Emma Sulkowicz, and the wonders of Neil deGrasse Tyson’s necktie.
Plus the UK elects its youngest MP in a gazillion years, new music from M.I.A., and Tina Knowles Lawson’s letter to her daughters.
Plus safe-spaces, laughing with Cecily Strong, and the man who punched a bear.
Kermit LIVES, a quadruple rainbow sighting, and live-tweeting sex-ed.
Plus, the new Star Wars trailer, Wimpy Kid finds a home, and dancing to Chance the Rapper’s short film.
