This Wouldn't Have Been Our First Post-'SNL' Project for Leslie Jones, But She'll Make It Work
I mean, I really like Schitt’s Creek too, but… (Lainey)
One of the things I enjoy about Lenny Kravitz is that when you see his picture, you really can’t tell if it was taken yesterday or twenty years ago. Side note: How does he keep getting hotter? - (GFY)
You know who probably shouldn’t present any more awards? John Travolta. We all remember his butchering of Idina Menzel’s name at the Oscars a few years ago. Last night at the VMAs, he tried to give Taylor Swift’s award to her drag queen lookalike. - (Dlisted)
It was announced earlier today that Leslie Jones would not be returning to SNL in its 45th season so that she could focus herself on other projects. One of those projects will be hosting a reboot of Supermarket Sweep, which sounds lika a terrible idea until you remember it’s Leslie Jones and realize how much fun she could probably make that game show. (EW)
Keke Palmer looked like a goddess in gold at the VMAs, and I thought Halsey’s rainbow roots were really neat, but I use the word “neat” so I may not be the arbiter of what’s cool these days. - (Celebitchy)
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is my idol. I hate that Veep is over, but I can’t wait to see what she does next! - (VF)
Good news for fans of A Black Lady Sketch Show! I’ve only seen three episodes, so far, but they’ve cracked me up and I’m excited they’re getting another season! - (THR)
Hannah posted this in our Slack today and I about died from the adorable!
A stray cat sneaked into the Leningrad Zoo and befriended a lynx. pic.twitter.com/cCslSRQUxi— Blakey (refollow) (@luvsiege) August 26, 2019
Comments to that tweet revealed that a) the story was 11 years old (not that it’s any less cute!) but that there are even more pictures, BECAUSE, this kitty sneaked it when she and Linda the Lynx were just tiny babies! - (Animal Channel)
KFC is testing a plant-based “chicken” in the Atlanta area. My husband has been eating plant-based for a year now and is super annoyed that KFC, headquartered in Louisville, is not testing it IN Louisville, which is only a couple of hours away from us. - (NPR)
I need to know *what* this is, *why* it is, and *who* would make and/or eat this?! Come on!

“Bedbug” is a terrible insult to NYT writer. So terrible, in fact, that Twitter accounts were shut down, an email was sent to a someone’s boss, an invitation to “say it to my face” was issued, and this phrase “A bedbug is basically a mosquito without ambition” has now become one of my favorite things I’ve read today! - (The Root)
Ale decided to revisit Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which she had read voluntarily as a kid. The controversy was forefront in her mind as she read. "Twain spares no expense in showcasing the utter brutality and violence common in the 1840s, nor the way Huck’s society views slavery." Is it worthwhile to read a racist book to maintain a clear view of history? (Cannonball Read 11)
I don’t think I posted this good boy before, but if I did? SORRY!
