+ The Women's March On Washington has dropped Texas-based anti-abortion group New Wave Feminists as a partner. A spokesperson from the organization sent the following statement to The Cut:

The Women’s March’s platform is pro-choice and that has been our stance from day one. We want to assure all of our partners, as well as participants, that we are pro-choice as clearly stated in our Unity Principles. We look forward to marching on behalf of individuals who share the view that women deserve the right to make their own reproductive decisions. The anti-choice organization in question is not a partner of the Women’s March on Washington. We apologize for this error.

+ Skrillex just dropped his first new single in 10 years. The track is called "Make War" and features From First To Last.

Deal of the Day:

Graf Lantz and OAK joined forces to create a bag that dreams are essentially made of. The Loak City Tote is available in three designs: washed denim, splattered paint, and washed white denim. Add it to your closet here.

Advice of the Day:
