This is awesome
Before you watch this sketch, I want you to Google “how much did Lebron James make in 2014.” I’ll wait. Now Google how much your favorite elementary school teacher made when you were in school, except you can’t because he/she is not famous enough for anyone to know their salary. But we do know that the average elementary school teacher makes, like, $55,000-ish per year. Key & Peele give us one more reason to love them (and mourn their ending) with this hilarious “TeachingCenter” sketch, which imagines a world where our best educators are treated—and paid—according to their worth. Peep the video for more!

"Things that cause rape..."
Back in March we learned that the great Amber Rose would be hosting her own up-and-coming Slut Walk. Y’all have watched me go from being somewhat indifferent to/somewhat fascinated by Amber Rose, to being a bona fide fan, and this is one reason why. She’s been taking to Instagram over the last few days to raise funds for the Amber Rose Foundation, which will be helping to sponsor the October 3rd Los Angeles Slut Walk. If you’re in Los Angeles and you believe that rapists—not short skirts, alcohol or flirting—cause rape, you might wanna join her. Click inside for more!

From the series premiere of 'I Am Cait'
Last night I was traveling back to New York from Boston and missed the premiere of I Am Cait, but I’m looking forward to watching soon. During Caitlyn Jenner‘s Diane Sawyer interview she talked a bit about how important Kanye West was in terms of her getting support from the people in her family, especially Kim. As a Kanye fan it makes me really happy to see him publicly supporting her transition and encouraging her boldness—clearly, he identifies with her attitude, which he describes as “Fuck everybody—this is who I am.” Check out the video clip from last night’s premiere for more.
The #Fleekage is real
Guys, something tragic happened to me this weekend. I decided to head out to Boston for the weekend, and as I was preparing to leave Friday I realized that the unthinkable had happened—I’d run out of time to get my eyebrows done. It’s fine, I did my hair or whatever… but it just wasn’t the same! So I’m living vicariously through Zendaya‘s Instagram photos and you all must join me. As you click through and weep over the eyebrow fleekage, remember, Zendaya is lovely… and she didn’t wake up like dis. Peep the gallery for more!
You're gonna wanna see this
Many of us still haven’t processed the fact that, in a couple of weeks, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart will be no more. I haven’t watched the show regularly in a long time, but I’m going to make it a point to try and catch these final episodes, because I’m expecting some pretty great things. Stewart has been an incredible, influential and hilarious voice over many many years and I’m sure he’s going out with a bang. On Tuesday, he’s got a very special guest and I cannot wait to see how these two chop it up. Click inside for more!
Grown Woman Status
I wish I could tell you what I did on my 18th birthday. There’s a 98% chance that I went to the movie theatre and had pizza, and thought about how awesome it was going to feel to stay out, like, 3 hours later than was typically allowed. I think for most of us, birthdays are a time to sing of ourselves and celebrate ourselves, Walt Whitman-style. But for the youngest Nobel Prize Winner, it’s a time to demand “books, not bullets” for the children of the world. I am, as always, in awe of Malala Yousafzai and today I’ll be thinking about how I can start adulting more like her. Click inside for more!

Even J. K. Rowling had to bow down!!!
For whatever reason I woke up this morning craving some throwback tracks from The Game. I started with Dreams, which is a song dedicated to the slain sister of Venus and Serena Williams. Yetunde Price was killed in a Compton shootout in 2003, and I only mention it here to stress the fact that the Williams sisters do not come from a life of privilege and have, therefore, overcome odds that most people simply cannot. To hail from Compton and become a famous rapper is one thing—but to hail from Compton and to become the greatest tennis player and one of the greatest athletes of all time? Bow down, bitches. Bow down. (And please watch the documentary Venus & Serena.) This past weekend Serena Jameka Williams won her sixth Wimbledon title and 21st major championship, and then took it upon herself to show up at the Wimbledon Champions’ Dinner in this gorgeous gown, looking like a god among men. Even J.K. Rowling had to get on Twitter and shut the haters down, because she knows this is Serena Williams‘ world, and we’re all lucky to be living in it.

This is going to be incredible.
As I sit her at my computer, listening to Jay Z and pondering the meaning of life, love, and all those drinks I had last night, one profound truth has occurred to me: Life was better with Empire. There’s been a sort of lull over the past few months and I realize now that it’s partly due to a severe lack of Empire, and I’m holding on to any news about Season Two and its impending arrival. If you don’t mind a little casting SPOILER, click inside for more!

Hunger Thirsty Games
Alexander Ludwig made his debut on the scene in the first Hunger Games movie as Cato, the male tribute from District 2. He found bigger fame as Björn Lothbrook in the spectacular History Channel series Vikings. Now, all grown up, Ludwig is featured in his own magazine spread in the new issue of Flaunt magazine. As you can see in the gallery presented here, the young actor is not shy about sharing himself with the world … including his proclivity for tighty whitey underwear. Alexander is really great on Vikings so I’m a fan. This magazine photospread only adds to my fandom.
The 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' star bares more than his bum
Actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson can be seen as Quicksliver / Pietro Maximoff in the superhero sequel film The Avengers: Age of Ultron but one thing you won’t see in the movie is his bare booty. That is why, I’m guessing, Aaron decided to show off his bum in the pages of the new issue of Flaunt magazine. Flaunt does a really great job of getting stars like Nick Jonas, Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen and Beyoncé to show off more than their pretty smiles … and I couldn’t be more happier that they do. Whenever I see photospreads like this, I am reminded that I need to pick up Flaunt magazine on newsstands more often. If you are an Aaron Taylor-Johnson fan, I think this issue is one that you’re gonna wanna buy. I mean, who wouldn’t like to hold this in their hands?
