Today is… 

National French Fries Day. A good day to snag this shirt.

News of the Day: 

+ Take a break from playing the Wes Anderson-inspired PC game, and visit the Wes Anderson-themed art exhibit instead. The show will run in the Joseph Gross Gallery in New York from August 7-9.

Taylor Swift's had some awesome guests appear at her concerts, but when Uzo Aduba appeared on stage at her recent concert in New Jersey, she took guest apperances to new heights. Seriously, it's Uzo Aduba, you guys. What we wouldn't give to see Swift's favorite contacts list.

+ J.K. Rowling's Twitter prowess can never be understated. She recently called out a tweet bodyshaming Serena Williams, which read: "she is built like a man" by responding, "Yeah, my husband looks just like this in a dress. You're an idiot." Go Rowling.

+ Those who have been itching to get their hands on a copy of Go Set a Watchman slated for a July 14 release can read the first chapter of Harper Lee's novel, courtesy of The Wall Street Journal and The Guardian. Both publications have made the first chapter available for public preview before the actual book hits shelves.

+ FKA Twigs is preparing for a dance-based performance project as part of the Manchester International Festival called "Soundtrack 7" in which she'll "explore a new narrative from her life each day via dance-based performances."
