Today is...

National Merry-Go-Round Day! 

News of the Day:

+ No different than the average person in the digital age, Lindsay Lohan took to Twitter and Instagram to rant about her fiancé, Egor Tarabasov. In addition to cheating accusations, she announced that she's pregnant. Congrats?

+ After facing backlash from players in the league (as well as the public), the WNBA has decided to withdrawl all fines against players and teams that wore apparel in support of Black Lives Matter and the recent victims of police brutality. One point for humanity!

+ Watch black celebrities honor victims of police brutality in a new video series titled #MyLifeMatters.

+ Brie Larson shared a touching post about the importance of being yourself in reflection of one of her first appearances at Maui Film Festival.


It shocked me to find this photo because I remember the day so well. I was respected enough to be honored at the Maui Film Festival - but not known enough to have a stylist or "glam squad". I found this Madewell dress in my closet. The most I knew how to do for grooming was pin half of it back and blink on a few coats of mascara. Before we went to the ceremony I felt flashes of embarrassment - I worried I was too fat, too ugly, too depressingly banal to be honored. I cringed to take photos. But today I see this moment and feel only love for myself. There is nothing wrong with this person. She is honest and beautiful and committed to showing up for this life. I wish I saw myself then as I see myself now. There is no need to waste your time working to be anything other than you. So hey, #tbt - thank you for the chance to honor all the hilarious ways we didn't know ourselves upon first meeting, and all the exciting new ways we get to know ourselves while we keep living.
