Workers' Memorial Day!
News of the Day:
+ Lemonade has caused a whirlwind of rumors to swirl regarding the state of Beyoncé and Jay Z's marriage. The line "Becky with the good hair" sparked what could be the next Watergate, but Jay Z finally weighed in on the matter. Apparently, he "fully supports" his wife and her work. Beyonce's father, Matthew Knowles, also put in his two cents and said that his daughter has "enlightened us." No hate here. Rock on, Bey.
+ The Summer Olympics are only a few months away, and athletes are doing everything they can to stay strong. Procter & Gamble reminds us that strength requires support in this video that celebrates the moms that continue to encourage their kids to always do their best.
+ Looks like there's going to be another reunion at Camp Firewood, only, this time, it's set 10 years later. All eight episodes of the next installment of Wet Hot American Summer will be hitting Netflix in 2017.
+ We know it's still the work week, so bring the rave to your desk while you count down to the weekend. This first-person video takes you through a party, popping pills, and throwing back drinks along the way. Check out "Ghost," the latest collaboration between With You. and Vince Staples.

Advice of the Day:
"The intimate act of telling, of revealing one’s self, one’s pain, one’s burden, and one’s lessons — the “spun gold” from the journey — is enough. The telling is the act. With Lemonade, Beyoncé has given us a blueprint to better live, struggle, and dream."—Janet Mock
