Stop what you’re doing! Sound the alarms! Donald Trump is no longer president!
Do I have your attention yet?
Hey! Sorry, I know that last one was mean. But now that we’re friends again, we need to talk about how this week was huge in entertainment. Please emotionally prepare yourself for the purest thing you’ll see this week: Fab Five member Jonathan Van Ness finding out Queer Eye got nominated for four Emmy awards! JVN is a national treasure and we do not deserve him. Am I the only one crying?
Also, the #InMyFeelings challenge is apparently a thing now, a new dance craze started when Instagram comedian Shiggy was dancing to Drake’s song of the same name. I am wholeheartedly shook to my core at Will Smith destroying us all with his interpretation. This is so weird because this was the same exact thing I had planned for my version of it, so it looks like I suddenly have some free time this weekend.
Today is also Friday the 13th! Spooky scary! Don’t worry, the only chilling thing about this day is that I just paid my credit card bill. Ouch, that got a little real. Let’s stop thinking about that—and get to it.
We hung out at the greatest event of the year!
If you were lucky enough to snag a ticket to The Toy Insider‘s legendary Sweet Suite event, you got a chance to hang with us at The Pop Insider‘s What’s Poppin’ Lounge! The area featured the coolest new pop culture products, including new high-end collectibles from McFarlane Toys, Wow Stuff!’s new Harry Potter toy collection, retro arcade game cabinets from Arcade 1Up!, and more! We had the best time ever, and we had so much fun helping you to #fuelyourfandom.
Now filming: LIFE SIZE 2.
It’s time y’all! You’ve waited long enough.
Could not find one single woman more perfect to co-star with Eve than the magnificently fierce @franciaraisa.

We have more deets on Life Size 2.
LIFE 👏 SIZE 👏 IS 👏 BACK 👏! Tyra Banks confirmed on her Twitter account that the sequel for the best movie ever is happening, and will release on Freeform this holiday season. Lindsay Lohan is not reprising her role as Casey, but Francia Raisa is joining the cast. This is the best news ever, and I officially have something to look forward to. Shine bright, shine far, y’all.
We have a World Cup finals, people!
This has been the craziest World Cup in a looooong time. Favorites left early, newbies surprised everyone, and you think a match is going to end one way, but is then totally different than you thought it would be. But doesn’t the unpredictability make it more exciting? Even though I did declare this World Cup dead to me a few weeks ago (don’t @ me), at the end of the day, this month-long event is so special because it brings the whole world together. Picture “We Are One” vibes from The Lion King 2. This Sunday, France will take on Croatia, and I can already tell you that this match will have fans of both sides on their feet the entire time.
Antoni Insta-stalks the Fab Five.
Queer Eye’s Antoni, my sweet little angel baby, is serving some serious love/shade for his cast mates in Elle’s final installment the squad Insta-stalking each other. I learned things that I probably shouldn’t know, like that he can unwrap a Starburst in his mouth and that his nipples are very sensitive. I don’t know what to do with this information. Also, someone needs to do a tally of who posts the most thirst traps. If you didn’t watch the other videos yet, what are you waiting for?!
We get a hilarious pun-off.
Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman graced us with a crafting pun-off for their Making It series. I would do literally anything to be able to sit down with both of them and do this because I am the kween of bad puns. Life’s a stitch, and then you die. Iconic.
Netflix dominated Emmy noms.
For the first time ever, Netflix got 112 Emmy nominations—a big flippin’ deal because it’s the first time that a streaming subscription beat a network in nominations for the award. HBO follows with 108 and NBC with 78. This just proves that everything Netflix is doing is working, including pumping out all of this quality original content that everyone is obsessed with (see Antoni video above).
Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast, listen plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you! So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY. I promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make. My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first! You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else. You make me so much better and we compliment eachother so well!! Can’t wait for the best season of life yet!. It’s funny because now with you everything seems to make sense! The thing I am most excited for is that my little brother and sister get to see another healthy stable marriage and look for the same!!! Gods timing really is literally perfect, we got engaged on the seventh day of the seventh month, the number seven is the number of spiritual perfection, it’s true GOOGLE IT! Isn’t that nuts? By the way I didn’t plan that, anyways My goodness does feel good to have our future secured! WERE GONNA BE BETTER AT 70 BABY HERE WE GO! “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains FAVOR from the Lord!” This is the year of favor!!!!
The Biebs is engaged.
Justin Bieber confirmed that he is engaged to Hailey Baldwin on his Instagram account with a cute (?) and lengthy message. It might be just me, but I feel like this came out of nowhere. It feels like just yesterday that the singer was getting arrested for drag racing. Sigh, how the time passes! Cheers to the happy couple that is “GONNA BE BETTER AT 70 BABY!”
We got great new music.
Literally out of nowhere, twenty one pilots broke its year-long silence with two new songs, an album announcement, and a world tour (catch ya girl at the Madison Square Garden date). Ominous. This same week, Childish Gambino also dropped two songs. Is releasing two songs at once the new thing? I am all about it.
We’re getting more trash TV.
Thank you, Hallmark, for having me covered during the holiday season when I am sitting in fetal position in bed with a tub of ice cream. The network is adding TWO (!) new Christmas movies to its slate of content this year, bringing up the total to a whopping 36 Christmas movies. I can’t wait to clog my DVR with all of these terrible, amazing movies.
Cardi B welcomes a baby girl.
Cardi B gave birth to a baby girl this week, named Kulture Kiari Cephus. Her and baby daddy Offset shared the news on their Instagram accounts with gorgeous photos of Cardi B when she was pregnant. Welcome to the fam, Kulture!
Until next time, my beautiful trash babies!
