In more 'darkest timeline' news: Katy Perry, Lil Nas X, and Jeff Bezos hang out.

katyperry chimed in with a comment: 'Never forget when our buddy Jeff borrowed your coat'

At the Amazon Prime Thank You concert, CEO of Amazon Jeff Bezos and popstars Katy Perry and Lil Nas X hung out backstage. It was a concert dedicated to 'Amazon employees' they they had to pay to attend. I wonder if they thanked the thousands of Amazon workers who aren't permitted to take bathroom breaks in the factories. Truly cursed.
