OK, Celebrity Men, We Get It: You Really Like Giving Oral Sex
OK, so after 17 years, Gabrielle Union and Jada Pinkett-Smith have finally reconciled. Oh, you didn’t know they were feuding? Nobody else did, either, but Kathleen does some legwork on the origins of their falling out. (Lainey)
A long-time reader of ours, Chastity, brought to our attention the story of Siwatu-Salama Ra, a Detroit activist who is currently pregnant and in prison, because she brandished an unloaded registered weapon that she was rightfully carrying under the concealed carry law in Michigan in order to defend herself against another woman who was using her car to try and mow down her, her mother, and the two-year-old, who was inside inside Ra’s car. In other words, Siwatu-Salama Ra’s use of a weapon in this case is exactly the sort of situation the NRA would normally defend, except for one thing: Ra is black. The NRA has remained curiously silent on the issue while Ra continues to sit in prison. That’s some hypocritical bullshit. (Metrotimes) (The Root)
I love great celebrity parents that beget great celebrity children by not spoiling them. (Celebitchy)
Here’s your first look at Prince Louis, who is a baby and not a movie currently in production, although I am very anxious to see the trailer. (GFY)
Return of the Jedi may generally be considered the lesser installment of the original trilogy, but it does have one thing going for it: All that hot Leia action. (SyFy)
In shameless self-promotion, if you haven’t read it yet, check out Kayleigh’s rundown of the romance author who trademarked the word “cocky” and is using that trademark in an attempt to shut down other authors who use the word in their titles. (Pajiba)
T.J. Miller will not appear in Deadpool 3, although there is some question about whether there will even be a Deadpool 3. (The Mary Sue)
Arrow’s Colton Haynes divorced his husband and immediately released a song about a cheating ex-boyfriend but it’s totally not about his husband because his husband is a total sweetie so lay off Arrow fans. (DListed)
There’s a lot more interest in Solo that I thought, so there will almost certainly be sequels, which I’m fine with as long as the sequel is called Lando and the movie after that is called Lando II. (/Film)
Max Covill runs down the character deaths that define their generation, and it’s totally missing Macauley Culkin in My Girl, which probably means that Max Covill is under the age of 30. That’s OK, but let me just say, the memory of an entire theater full of people openly bawling is one that will never leave me. (FSR)
I know most of you are busy watching Westworld on Sundays, but Fear the Walking Dead delivered another heartbreaker, as it continues to improve significantly upon The Walking Dead. (Uproxx)
Johnnie Walker is going to make White Walker scotch sometime this fall. Because what we really want this year is a new Game of Thrones alcohol tie-in, not, say, a season or a book.
Appreciate what The Rock is doing here …
Ahem.. *clears throat*— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) May 6, 2018
as a man, I take great pride in mastering ALL performances. This is probably a little TMI.. I will now quietly excuse myself from this fun thread 👀
… but I’m not as necessarily enthused about every C-list dude jumping on the train.
DJ Khalid doesn’t know what he’s missing out on.— Kevin Zegers (@KevinZegers) May 5, 2018
Proud to share no dietary restrictions with DJ Khaled and whatnot. #WallaceAfterDark— George Wallace (@MrGeorgeWallace) May 6, 2018
with all due respect to dj khaled's wife the absolute worst thing to come out of all of this is the amount of dudes explaining in great detail how much they love and cherish eating pussy— 𝔳𝔢𝔱𝔢𝔪𝔢𝔫𝔱𝔰 𝔠𝔬𝔣𝔣𝔢𝔢 𝔢𝔫𝔢𝔪𝔞 (@bigsausagelover) May 6, 2018

bernie sanders your silence on the DJ Khaled pussy eating scandal is a disgrace— KT NELSON (@KrangTNelson) May 6, 2018
I feel like once Smash Mouth weighed in, that was everyone’s cue that the issue had run its course.
There’s a West Virginia coal baron running for Senate as a Republican (natch), who called Mitch McConnell “Cocaine Mitch” and referred to his “China family” and his desire to create jobs for “China people” in an ad and then defended his use of those terms by referring to black people as “n*gros,” and he may actually win the GOP nomination.

New Cannonballer RaePercy picked up Rebel by R.R. Banks because the description was so bad. Unfortunately, it wasn’t entertainingly bad. The first person narration is bad - it’s a sequence of tropes, and the sexual consent is dubious. "The love wasn’t believable and even with the ending I found it all a bit shot-gun-like. Never EVER marry because of the sex." Do you intentionally pick up bad books? Why? (Cannonball Read 10)
Goddamnit, Junot Diaz. Goddamnit. (Vulture)
