8@8: your morning scoop

amandla stenberg continues to make powerful statements

by jenny lee

Today is...

Pierce Your Ears Day! Claire's will have a field day.

News of the Day:

+ Amandla Stenberg may be young, but she knows what she's doing. Stenberg's newest project was creating a comicbook of a black teen elf warrior who finds strength in herself—a powerful message for girls of color.

+ Watch Funny Or Die's hilarious sketch of a Meryl Streep Lifetime movie, starring Christina Applegate as Streep:

+ Miley Cyrus' latest photoshoot with Interview is a rather controversial and definitely NSFW series of screenshoots of Cyrus mastubating over FaceTime with photographer Mert Alas. She sure knows how to work the shock factor.

+ Great news! Or terrible news for compulsive shoppers. Amazon Prime is launching offline browsing for all those moments on your commute when you just can't seem to get service. Well played, Amazon.

+ McDonald's is introducing all day breakfast, you guys. All day. A total gamechanger.

Deal of the Day:

Shop new fall arrivals at Madewell.
