News of the Day:
+ Beyoncé unleashed the official music video for her single "Sorry." It's the same footage that was featured in the visual album for Lemonade, but there's nothing we love more than rewatching Serena Williams unapologetically twerk beside Queen Bee. It's the ultimate victory dance, and we wish we could take part in the celebration.
+ Calling all wine lovers! Spanish company Gik has released a bright blue wine made from indigo and grape skin extract. According to their website, the drink will soon be available in the U.S. so get your glasses ready.
+ Have you ever wanted to avoid giving someone your phone number due to lack of romantic interest? Now you can with Ghostbot, a service that allows users to have temporary disposable phone numbers that can be deleted at any time. Ghosting just became so much easier.
