Today is...

World Goth Day! #dark

News of the Day:

+ Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak are writing a book about their relationship for $7.5 million. Apparently, Random House pays big for the complicated stuff... (We'd take a milli for the 411 on ALL of our past relationships.)

+ Rumor has it that RiRi is looking to work with dance hall artists for her super top secret new album. She recently contacted the founder of Mixpak Records, label of artists like Popcaan and Vybz Kartel. Cue the clap hands emojis—we are ready to tear it up on the dance floor.

+ Willow Smith recorded a new song called "WEEPINGWILOUGH/LETSGOTOMECCA." It's a collaboration with Mecca Kalani about her pilgrimage to Mecca... #casual.

+ Jennifer Lawrence was all smiles in an Insta pic with director Bryan Singer and ex Nicholas Hoult for "X-Men Apocalypse." Looks like you can be friends with your ex after all, or at least pretend to be on set. (Maybe they're just really good actors?)

+ Queen Bey has found herself in hot water over the scene in "Feeling Myself" where she pours out a bottle of champagne in the pool. Apparently, it's worth ~$20,000 and people on the Internet are really mad about it. Can we just let Bey live???
