Yeeeeeeah. After Linda Fiorentino‘s character was inducted as a Woman In Black at the end of the first Men In Black, and then they didn’t bring her back in the sequels, I was like…WTF?! But it looks like finallllly the producers decided to bring back a female to the franchise.
Producer Laurie MacDonald spoke to the BBC, saying that there will be a “prominent Woman in Black,” in the fourth installment. Apparently the producers would like to “reinvent” the franchise, and pull away from focusing solely on the relationship between Agent J and Agent K, like the previous films had. I wonder who they’ll cast! More »

You may have seen the photos from last of of Atlanta rapper Killer Mike dining with presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Well after Killer Mike dined Sanders at the Busy Bee, he introduced him to a large crowd with an impassioned speech, where he praised the politician for his views on health care, education, the war on drugs, and the Voting Rights Act. “Unlike any candidate in my life he said education should be free for every citizen of this country,” Mike says to an eruption of applause.

The woman won’t give up! Remember that time that Louis C.K. drunkenly tweeted at Sarah Palin and called her a “fucking jack-off-cunt-face jazzy wondergirl?” First off, I don’t really know what that means which makes it all the more amusing. Secondly, Louis apologized. Sarah then reached out a hand and invited Louis to go ice fishing. Well that clearly hasn’t happened yet. More »

Poor Jennifer, she’s just the most worshipped woman on the freaking planet. In an interview for Vogue that just came out, Jennifer Lawrence dished on a lot of stuff including how she was raised republican, that she hates to fly commercial, and how she’s lonely on Saturday nights.
“No one ever asks me out,” she says. “I am lonely every Saturday night. Guys are so mean to me. I know where it’s coming from, I know they’re trying to establish their dominance, but it hurts my feelings. I’m just a girl who wants you to be nice to me. I am straight as an arrow.” Oh my lord can someone get this girl a date? I can’t imagine anyone being mean to her, if anything they are probably intimidated, but I would love to hear an example.

"They'll make girl rules"
If you want the truest form of opinion, ask kids because they’ll tell you what they think no matter how sensitive the topic. So that’s what Jimmy Kimmel did! The late night host put four children together (two boys and two girls), and asked them if a woman could be president. There was a clear divide: The girls thought a female president could do just as well (or better) than a man, while the boys weren’t convinced. They expressed their divided opinions, even after Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton dropped into the discussion on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. “They’ll probably like, decorate the White House and make it all girly,” said one of the boys. “They might even paint it pink.” Watch above — some of their answers will seriously make you LOL!
Earlier this week T.I. pissed off the women of the world (including myself), by stating on DJ Whoo Kid’s radio show that he “can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman.” But OH WAIT, now he’s all like, just kidding! Looks like T.I. couldn’t take the heat for such a rash and sexist statement. Not only did he post this apology to Twitter, but earlier today he posted an extended video apology to Facebook. More »
Did you watch the Democratic Debate last night? Because if you missed it, then allow me to bring you quite possibly the funniest moment. There were lots of important things being said by the Democratic presidential hopefuls, but truly none of them were as great as Bernie Sanders defending Hillary Clinton, and the duo sharing a laugh and a hand shake. It all started with Bernie’s great line, “The American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails.” He said it might not be “good politics,” but “enough of the emails. Let’s talk about the real issues facing America.” Obviously Hillary loved it. More »
No kids, Donald Trump isn't George Clooney.
Here’s a clip from last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live where Jimmy Kimmel leads a focus group of kids to find out what they think about some of the presidential candidates. “Is it Martha Washington?” guessed one child of Hillary Clinton, after the hint that her husband used to be president. One kid also thought that Donald Trump was George Clooney. Oh, and what do they think of Bernie Sanders? “I don’t want him to be president because he looks very old and he looks like this year he’s gonna die.” Watch the clip above and prepare to laugh.
"In school I learned to apply cultural and historical context"
Last night at the 2015 Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, Beyoncé introduced First Lady Michelle Obama, who went on to speak about an important new campaign aimed at changing the educational opportunities (or lack thereof) for millions of young girls around the world. I’m really excited about the campaign because some of my favorite people are getting involved, including Kerry Washington, Mindy Kaling and Malala Yousafzai. Click inside for more!
Tonight on Sick, Sad World
The other day I was having a conversation with a friend of mine who used to live in the south of France with his two children. A word of advice to all of you parents out there: don’t EVER have a conversation with anyone who used to live in the south of France with their two children. I knew that daycare was cheap (AKA affordable for everyone) in France, but did you know that in some places it’s 100% free for everyone with children under Kindergarten age? Did you also know that children in elementary school enjoy four different recesses throughout the school day, because administrators in France get that children are better students when they have plenty of time dedicated to moving their bodies freely? Yeah. Meanwhile in America, a school district in Washington state has just banned the game of tag AKA happiness from their schools. Click inside for more.
