-Kehlani on social media.Kehlani"I'm not annoyed by fame.It's more like I pick and choose my battles.I get scrutinized so much.. It's one of those things where I think I've been so open with how much it's affected me that people know I can be poked at,so they can continue to poke.That's why when people do the whole'These new girls,they need to be like Beyonce and Aaliyah. Aaliyah would never be commenting back.'It's like ,'Bro,Aaliyah didn't have Instagram! It didn't exist.Beyonce was a whole grown adult before Instagram came out.' You can't compare us. We grew up being dissected. If I had spent more time knowing myself I could have saved myself so much unnecessary b.s."

-Kehlani on maintaining healthy relationships to serve as an example for her daughter.Kehlani"I'm used to arguments and fights and people not talking to each other and people having mass secrets. I'm not used to positive love.So it took me a long time to learn what positive love is.Love doesn't have to be difficult and it doesn't have to hurt to measure how much and how good and how deep it is.We grew up getting taught the ride or die mentality."

-Kehlani on famous friends that have passed(Mac Miller,Chynna Rogers)KehlaniFans put so much pressure on artists,sometimes more than the industry. I've never been compared more in my life than last year and this year, and now it seems like everyday I see a
'SZA,Kehlani,H.E.R or summer walker - one of them has to go.We have to start appreciating multiple people at the same time.I'm sure if they felt a little more loved, things might have gone a little different. Life might have been in a better place."

-Kehlani on support. Kehlani:"I feel like I might not get support from my peers, Then I check myself like,'That's not what I do it for.My cheerleaders are my friends and my auntie. They see me waking up at 5am with my daughter and then getting no sleep and getting right to work. Them knowing how much I'm proud of that means the most to me."

An ONTD investigation: Alison Roman's beef with the stars of Bon Appetit and other chefs

Alison Roman, once the darling of the New York media scene and white Brooklyn hipsters, is no longer this quarantine's anointed cooking goddess. She has been knocked off her pedestal after a diastrous interview in which she came after Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo, two Asian women.

After fierce backlash, she released an apology on Twitter, calling her remarks tone deaf and saying she needs to understand "the difference between being unfiltered and honest. vs being uneducated and flippant." But not everyone bought it, as evidenced by what the stars of Bon Appetit have liked on Twitter and Instagram and what friends/family of these BA stars' have stated on social media.

Alison Roman, before coming to the New York Times, worked at Bon Appetit from 2011 to 2015 as a food editor. This very, very scientific™ analysis will attempt to shed a little bit of light on some of the dynamic at the BA kitchen and how other chefs perceive her. I have no definitive conclusions about whether they truly loathe each other, as the clues are contradictory. I only present them to you and can only hope it starts a robust discussion. Let us look at the evidence shall we?

First up: Carla Lalli and Alison Roman

Unlike Alison Roman, I would like other people to be credited for the work that I take from them. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will update the post.

11 “Game Of Thrones” Characters Who Deserved Different Endings, And 10 Who Didn’t

“So here are a few characters whose endings needed a rewrite, and a few who are just fine the way they are,” writes Medina.

[More]Daenerys could have had the greatest villain arc of all time, but instead was made to look like a woman who was too emotional for power.

Sansa Stark had a terrific arc that ended exactly where it should have.

Varys had a lot left to offer and executing him was premature.

Cersei Lannister's fate was not satisfying in the slightest and she deserved a better death.

Jon Snow deserved a bigger role in the final season, even if his ending didn't totally suck.

Scotland's MP Criticizes Neil Gaiman for Traveling 11,000 Miles to His Scottish Vacation Home

gaiman palmer ontd.png

The saga of Neil Gaiman continues. As it turns out, Gaiman did not even flee from New Zealand to his primary home in Cambridge, England. He fled to his vacation home in Scotland. Gaiman was under quarantine in New Zealand with wife Amanda Palmer, but fled 11,000 miles (17,700 km) to the UK because he "needed some space."

Scotland's MP, Ian Blackford, has publicly chastised the author after people brought it to his attention that the author traveled to Scotland during lockdown. Says Mr. Blackford:

"What is it about people, when they know we are in the middle of lockdown that they think they can come here from the other side of the planet, in turn endangering local people from exposure to this infection that they could have picked up at any step of the way?"

But Gaiman feels entitled to the travel because:

University of Alabama and Bachelorette Alumnus Hannah Brown Uses N-word

Last night, Hannah Brown used the N word -- with a hard r -- on Instagram live. Whilst singing the lyrics to a DaBaby song, she censored herself from saying "fuck" because she loves Jesus but didn't even hesitate when it came to saying a racial slur She issued a shitty apology via Instagram stories because I guess she didn't want to read the replies.

I'm not going to embed the video (okay I'm putting it under a cut now) but here is a great synopsis:

Rachel Lindsay went on Instagram live and was rightfully unimpressed with Hannah B's apology and upset at Bachelor Nation coming to Alabama Hannah's defense in the comments because of course they did.
