After rumors circulated of potential new flavors just two months ago, Kit Kat has finally launched two new flavors in the U.S. to coincide with Valentine’s Day and Easter: Raspberry Creme and Lemon Crisp.
Miniature Kit Kats in the raspberry creme flavor have already been spotted in 9-ounce bags at Target for $3.69 and Walmart for $2.98 and will be available for a limited time.
Last Spring the company announced their first new permanent flavor in almost a decade in the States with Kit Kat Duos Mint and Dark Chocolate.
That flavor arrived in store shelves last month in December.
It’s a start but...just give us the exciting and unique flavors Japan already gets you cowards!

* While promoting his flop version of Dr. Dolittle Robert Downey Jr. made a stop at Joe Rogan's podcast
* When 'Tropic Thunder' was mentioned he defended the choice as its absurdity being the points and claims that he approached it 'all in'
* His mother was apprehensive about him taking the role but he went forward anyway & claims his black friends though it was 'Brilliant' & name checks Ben Stiller's vision in bringing it forward
* When articles/opinions stated the opposite are brought up he says he 'cannot disagree with but knows where his heart is' (ok, sure)

Jessica Simpson covers the new issue of People Magazine to promote her upcoming memoir, 'Open Book', revealing painful memories and what led to her 'killing herself' with alcohol and pills.
On childhood abuse: When she was 6 years old, she recalls “I shared a bed with the daughter of a family friend. It would start with tickling my back and then go into things that were extremely uncomfortable.” At 12, she finally told her parents while they were on a car trip. “Dad kept his eye on the road and said nothing. We never stayed at my parents’ friends house again but we also didn’t talk about what I had said.”
On body image : “On my 17th birthday, I flew to New York for meetings with record labels. I sang ‘Amazing Grace’ for Tommy Mottola at Columbia and he wanted to sign me. And then he said, 'You gotta lose fifteen pounds.'” (Simpson says she was only 118 pounds)
On addiction: “I was killing myself with all the drinking and pills.” In late 2017 she says she was “pretty [close to] rock-bottom” and made the decision to seek treatment to get sober. “Quitting was the easy part. I was mad at that bottle. At how it allowed me to stay complacent and numb.”
'Open Book' hits stores February 4th, 2020. You can pre-order here.
i said SNL sucks and the head writer got mad and me and, well, i wrote about ithttps://t.co/3fgl6pir5F— jack allison (@jackallisonLOL) January 22, 2020
- this guy Jack Allison tweeted that SNL sucks, without tagging/@-ing the show, and Che responded on IG and got weirdly personal
- this has gone on for MONTHS with Che posting weird lies about this guy's personal life and always pointing out that he's "poor"
- there was that other time someone else wrote an article about everyone hating Jost (lmao) and Che responded by saying that the author has sex with dogs and other charming stuff
- talks more about the fallacy of 'cancel culture' and comedians being insanely thin-skinned (Seinfeld complaining about "PC" college students; Davidson's weird NDA nonsense)
It should be noted that this Jack guy is a hardcore Bernie Bro who hates The Last Jedi because Holdo is obviously a metaphor for Hillary, so...grain of salt, but he ain't wrong here. At least Jost has the sense to slightly hide his shittiness by staying off social media.

She's not doing a full blown tour so she can have a more controlled schedule/be with her family more.
Initially it was reported her mom had breast cancer and had undergone chemo, however it returned sometime in 2019, and Taylor revealed her mom's been now diagnosed with brain cancer.
"This is a year where I have to be there for my family -- there's a lot of question marks throughout the next year, so I wanted to make sure that I could go home. I mean, we don't know what is going to happen. We don't know what treatment we're going to choose. It just was the decision to make at the time, for right now, for what's going on."
She also said, "The symptoms of what a person goes through when they have a brain tumor is nothing like what we've ever been through with her cancer before. So it's just been a really hard time for us as a family."
regardless of how you feel about her, this is insanely hard :( damn.

Our Lord and Savior Gritty is under police investigation for allegily assulting a teenager a few months ago.
Chris Greenwell claims that the mascot punched his 13 year old son in the back during a meet-n-greet event after his son patted Gritty on the head.
Comcast Spectacor, who owners the Flyers, could not find any evidence to support Greenwell's account of events (there was no video footage). As a result, Greenwell has taken the incident to Philly police, who are currently investigating. All Greenwell wants is an apology and something special for his son, but has not been satisified with what the Flyers have given him.

Taylor Swift Says Kanye West Moment 'Burrowed Into My Psyche' but She Doesn't 'Think Too Hard' About It Now https://t.co/fgQxu0KSOf— People (@people) January 21, 2020
Taylor Swift reveals she's still affected by the Kanye West interruption that took place at 2009's VMAs.
In the new issue of Variety, the songstress opened up about the emotional impact that the incident had on her psyche.
“As a teenager who had only been in country music, attending my very first pop awards show, somebody stood up and sent me the message: ‘You are not respected here. You shouldn’t be here on this stage. That message was received, and it burrowed into my psyche more than anyone knew.”
She continues, “But then when that person who sparked all of those feelings comes back into your life, as he did in 2015, and I felt like I finally got that respect, but then soon realized that for him it was about him creating some revisionist history where he was right all along, and it was correct, right and decent for him to get up and do that to a teenage girl.”
The 30 year old star does admit it's gotten easier as the years have went on, “I don’t think too hard about this stuff now.”

Jessica Simpson says her alcohol dependency began as a coping mechanism for her anxiety while dating John Mayer after her divorce to Nick Lachey in 2006.
“The connection was so strong that he made me feel seductive, and he spoke about sex and my body in a way that made me feel powerful, at least physically. [But] I constantly worried that I wasn’t smart enough for him.”
The pop star was at the time known as being a 'dumb blonde' due to her reality series, Newlyweds, where a clip asking if her tuna was "chicken or fish" made her the butt of endless jokes.
“He was so clever and treated conversation like a friendly competition that he had to win. When I tried to leap back in and say something to add to the dialogue he was having with himself, he would challenge what I said and I’d get quiet. I was so afraid of disappointing him that I couldn’t even text him without having someone check my grammar and spelling.”
The pressure is what caused Simpson to reach for the bottle.
“My anxiety would spike, and I would pour another drink. It was the start of me relying on alcohol to mask my nerves.”
Writer for Decider.com, Lea Palmieri, absolutely destroys the misogynistic brüs on this season of Bravo’s Below Deck in a new article. Episode after episode, the majority of the comments on social media are rightfully dragging the men this season for the vile and downright disgusting ways they are treating the women on the boat.
Palmieri writes, “Brian’s text message to Courtney about ‘just having fun’ was undeniably a dick move, but I care less about that and more about the fact that he jumped to conclusions when Kevin came running to him with the gossip. These guys are the biggest gossips and divas on the boat, without a doubt. Kevin’s back went out because his skeleton can’t even support all the shit he talks, and he’s not respected Kate or her authority for one second on this boat.”
Even Below Deck’s chief stew Kate Chastain retweeted the article, tweeting: “Thank you @LittleLeaP for explaining this so precisely 🙌.” Read her full article dragging the brüs here.
So, will there be a Below Deck Season 7 Reunion where we hope to see the boys get dragged and questioned to hell and back? Yes! Viewers feared there wouldn’t be one after its spinoff, Below Deck Mediterranean, did not receive one last season. Decider confirmed that the reunion will air on Monday, February 10th on Bravo.

American Psycho Turns 20: How Leonardo DiCaprio Came Close to Playing Christian Bale's Iconic Role https://t.co/3xrFGUTzwD— People (@people) January 23, 2020
The film adaptation for 'American Psycho' celebrates its 20th anniversary.
The cult favorite premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 20 years ago today, where almost no one was ready to accept it.
Director Mary Harron recalls, “The amount of hostility at Sundance really did take me aback. The audience just sat there and did not know how to react. Because this little group of us, the editor, me, Christian, a few other people—we were laughing away. We knew the scenes that are meant to be funny are funny.”
Trivia about the film, as revealed to Movie Maker.
• At one point, Leonardo DiCaprio was cast as Patrick Bateman and offered $20M to play the role.
• Harron refused to work with DiCaprio because his audience at the time was very teen/preteen, so Lionsgate replaced her with Oliver Stone.
• Once DiCaprio and Stone both dropped out, the project was given back to Harron.
• Christian Bale had never worked out a day in his life until landing the role of Patrick Bateman.
• Bale stayed in character throughout the shoot. He never spoke in his real accent and never socialized with anyone while on set.

-Justin Trudeau was in Winnipeg for the three-day Liberal Cabinet Retreat
-An online order was placed for multiple dozens of donuts at bakery Oh Doughnuts; on Monday they learned who it was for when he picked them up
-Social media users are outraged that he didn't choose cheaper donuts from a place like Tim Hortons
-People jumped to the conclusion that he paid a whopping $47 per dozen. Not the case! The bakery says their fancier donuts would come to $47 per dozen, but he ordered basic assorted donuts AND got a 10% discount for ordering online
-The bakery fired back at the haters and called out Tim Hortons for all the shitty stuff they've done (locking out staff for a 10-cent raise, donuts aren't baked fresh in stores, local ingredients aren't used). Oh Doughnuts is a local bakery and thus needs to charge more than Tim Hortons.

-She had been with Nick Lachey for 7 years when she said she wanted a divorce. He told the press he was blindsided but she says they weren't speaking to each other. "Maybe he was just shocked that I stood up for myself. I don't think he ever thought I would take the leap."
-She says she met John Mayer at a Grammy party in February 2005 and he sent increasingly intimate messages to her. She wasn't even divorced, but once she was, he made his move. John told her he was obsessed with her sexually and emotionally, but she never felt adequate with him and was afraid to disappoint him.
-John Mayer broke up with her via email but it was really over once he called her a sexual napalm. "He thought that was what I wanted to be called," she recalled. "I was floored and embarrassed that my grandmother was actually gonna read that.

Icelandic musician, songwriter and producer, Björk, has produced an AI-assisted choral piece to be played in the lobby of New York City hotel Sister City.
Titled 'Kórsafn', meaning "choral archives", the piece uses Microsoft AI to put together sounds pulled from 17 years worth of choral recordings made by Björk herself.
The Icelandic artist said of 'Kórsafn'. "I offered them my choir archives, written over 17 years, that will float through the pinball of artificial intelligence by the grid of bird migrations, clouds, aeroplanes and that voluptuous thing called barometer!"
The piece is a living and evolving soundscape, with the images in the installation powered by a camera on the roof of the Sister City. For example, the AI camera checks for clouds, but also the density and type of cloud, whether a cumulus and nimbus, or distinguishing an entire flock of birds. As the AI learns to identify new objects, the choral arrangements you hear on the hotel will change to accurately reflect the weather conditions or to suit the mood of of that particular day, changing over time.
