Meghan Markle posed for a photograph with her new family, and as Lainey writes, her “dress is bullshit. It fits like sh-t. I hate the sheer, the way it’s wrinkling up her arms, it looks sloppy, and, most importantly, it looks budget. Really, really budget.” I look at it, and all I see is a dress, but I love that other people can find meaning in clothes. (Lainey)
Likewise, finding drama where I otherwise might not see it is an amazing talent. “Samantha [Meghan Markle’s half-sister] is out in the cold and coming after Doria Ragland, who did nothing but behave with grace and dignity as her ex-husband’s trashy kids embarrassed and shamed her daughter.” Wow. (Celebitchy)
YOU GUYS! Jet Li looks FINE, but the reason why he looks a little older these days is because 1) he is older, and 2) he’s suffering from hyperthyroidism. (Dlisted)
Things are even more grim for Michael Cohen (or Donald Trump). Cohen’s business partner, Evgeny A. Freidman (otherwise known as the Taxi King) has agreed to a plea deal with the prosecutors in exchange for his testimony against Cohen, and Freidman was facing a stiff sentence, so he must have the goods and if he flips on Cohen, that’ll put more pressure on Cohen to flip on Trump. (NYTimes)
And if you’re wondering, yes: He looks exactly like what you’d imagine a guy who goes by “The Taxi King” would look like.
I’m so happy to announce that the Taxi King looks exactly how you think someone with the nickname “Taxi King” would look pic.twitter.com/DTN5nZwjWk— Michael Tannenbaum (@iamTannenbaum) May 22, 2018
I’m sorry, but the whole American Idol finale last night strikes me as just super gross. (WashPo)
If you haven’t seen this yet, it is literally the best thing I’ve seen on the Internet this week.

Here, in my neck of the woods, I got a huge kick out of these Darwin nominees, who endeavored to steal a 25-foot shed by dragging it behind them in a pick-up truck. They were apprehended. They were not hard to spot. (Portland Press Herald)
Cher and Preeti cover Deadpool 2 in this week’s podcast, although they have surprisingly few thoughts on the film. (Strong Female Characters)
The Royals are just like us: they can’t keep George Clooney from hawking his ridiculous booze venture, either. (Vulture)
Pro-tip: Sometimes “cum” ISN’T offensive, ya’ll. (Esquire)
If you spend any time on Twitter, you’ve probably seen this guy, and you may have even retweeted him:
Trump to Leslie Stahl when asked why he attacks the media:— Brian Krassenstein (@krassenstein) May 22, 2018
“I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so that when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you."
The most surprising part of this statement is the fact that no one is surprised he said this.
1) That tweet is accurate, and 2) he’s a fervent anti-Trumper and good with the Tweets, and 3) he and his brother are apparently also crooks. (The Daily Beast)
Forget those Deadpool 2 cameos — we’re still not done with the Black Panther ones yet. (Vanity Fair)
I liked Deadpool 2 a lot, but I 100 percent agree with this assessment. (FSR)
Speaking of, I don’t like this career move, Ryan Reynolds. (/Film)
Bea Pants loved Wylding Hall by Elizabeth Hand so much, "I literally found myself sneaking off to read just a little bit more on the Kindle app on my phone." The combination of a crumbling English manor, a mystery, and possible pagan horror gave her a sense of the kind of creeping horror you find in 70’s occult films. Do you have a favorite subgenre of horror? (Cannonball Read 10)
OK, so this doesn’t look GOOD, but tattooed Charlie Hunnam AND Rami Malek? Hello!
