    + Just when you thought the Brock Turner case couldn't get any more frustrating, upsetting details have emerged. New courtroom transcripts revealed that the anonymous victim had to answer incredibly invasive questions on her drinking and eating habits. Jane Doe addressed the questioning in her victim impact statement: “To listen to your attorney attempt to paint a picture of me, the face of girls gone wild, as if somehow that would make it so that I had this coming for me."

    + If there was any doubt about 2016 being the year of the throwback, My Chemical Romance's revival seals the deal. The band posted a mysterious clip to YouTube of the MCR flag blowing in a foggy wind while the intro to "The Black Parade" is playing softly in the distance. So, unearth those J-14 posters of Gerard Way and revive your fingerless black gloves from middle school because emo is back. Watch the cryptic clip, below.

    + Nike's newest campaign is all about body positivity. The sportswear brand features young, empowering creatives like multihyphenated beauty Paloma Elsesser modeling the Nike Pro Bra Collection

     

    + From starring in his own mini-documentary/musical, "Keep Sailing" directed by Petra Collins, to the release of his much-anticipated collab single with Leaf, Lil Yachty is having a major moment. Watch the short film below, and bump "Nada" here.
