After all that designer drama bullcrap, Leslie Jones looked AMAZING at the Ghostbusters premiere. Simple, elegant, and seriously smoking hot. Every designer except Christian Siriano missed the hell out. (Go Fug Yourself)
Siriano, by the way, got married this weekend, and it was the only time it’s been appropriate (or mandatory, by the looks of it) for guests to wear white to a wedding.
Alanis Morissette had a baby and her choice of name is… interesting? (Lainey)
What’s the opposite of surprising? How about hearing that more women are adding their stories to the library of scum that is Roger Ailes’ history of harassment. (Uproxx)

For all we’ve talked about Miranda, Philippa Soo, and Leslie Odom, Jr. leaving the show this past weekend, there was a fourth actor sharing that final Saturday show: Ariana DeBose, known as “The Bullet.” This is an old interview, but a really cute story of how she and her partner found love in the alley between their two Broadway theaters.

Zachary Quinto and Simon Pegg are really bummed at George Takei’s response to the Sulu news. (Celebitchy)
Even when talking about attending a Republican LGBT event, Caitlyn Jenner has to admit that that’s not really a thing that exists. (DListed)
This photograph from a Baton Rouge protest this week is bound to be historic. (BuzzFeed)
This piece on the beautiful relationship between Poussey and Soso on Orange Is the New Black is, by far, the best thing I’ve read today. A note, though: there are MAJOR spoilers for the last season here, and I’m gonna ask that we keep those spoilers out of the comments, so as not to discourage the unspoiled from joining the conversation. I know we haven’t talked about season four here yet, but if I promise to put up a space for that in the next day or two, can we hold off on the big plot points till then? Deal? (Revelist)
