-It’s been a big week for baby news. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed a baby boy via surrogate.

-Also, Kim is quietly funding a legal team that has helped 17 prisoners gain freedom over the last three months. The people released were serving life in prison sentences for low-level drug offenses.

-I like this piece on how Game Of Thrones has relegated its female characters to the same lazy archetypes it once tried to avoid.

-This is also a great thread on how the writing on GoT has changed.

-I also like this piece on in the time of Me Too, the higher the profile, the harder it is to get corporations that benefit from their work to take women’s claims seriously. Now, the opposite seems to be happening.

Kim Kardashian: Attorney at Law?

Kim Kardashian Lawyer Vogue

-In her new Vogue cover storyKim Kardashian says that she’s studying to be a lawyer and plans to take her bar exam in 2020. I know everyone’s making fun of this but the woman is clearly intelligent enough, and she seems really passionate when talking about prison reform in the interview. She’s also eager to talk about Kanye West‘s mental health, saying “Right now everything is really calm. But we can definitely feel episodes coming, and we know how to handle them. For him, being on medication is not really an option, because it just changes who he is.”

-Console your teens: despite all the rumours, Selena Gomez is not dating a guy Niall Horan from 1D.

-Oof, the hubris of actors. Lori Loughlin reportedly thought the DA was bluffing so she rejected their first plea and now faces additional, more serious  charges.

-Meanwhile, Meghan Markle continues to gather Hollywood heavyweights in her corner. Her latest supporter? Oprah! While promoting her Apple series on mental health that she’s partnering with Prince Harry on, Oprah said “I think she’s being portrayed unfairly, and I feel that if people really knew her they would know that she is not only everything we perceive of her in being graceful and dynamic in holding that position, but she just has a wonderful, warm, giving, loving heart. I think it’s very unfair.”

-I’m sort of excited for the return of Game of Thrones on Sunday. But I’m VERY excited for the return of Gay Of Thrones, the hilarious recaps by Queer Eye’s Jonathan.

-This Twitter thread on surreal celeb encounters is a delight. (Jackee Harry won with this response.)

-Foster the People and Imagine Dragons were beefing? Not gonna lie, I kind of thought they were the same band.

-I’m so glad that Special — the new Netflix show about a disabled gay man — is getting good reviews. I worry it’s going to be lost in the mix (especially because searching for “special” on Netflix results in a sea of comedy specials).

-I’m both happy and skeptical about Barry getting renewed for season 3 at HBO. Happy because season 2 is currently amazing; skeptical because the show went from asking “can this guy be redeemed?” to asking “when will this irredeemable guy get caught?” and I don’t know how long they can stretch that.

-The first poster for Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood starring Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio has been released, and it’s rul bad. Why are they standing so far apart that one of Pitt’s shoulders doesn’t even fit in the frame? Why is the photoshop so bad that it looks like someone just pasted his face on another person’s body? How does this happen in 2019?

John Stamos pretended (I hope?) to get a giant Nick Jonas tattoo. I guess that’s one way to take the spotlight off Aunt Becky.

-I haven’t watched Shrill yet because it’s on Hulu which is hard to get here, but everyone on Twitter who’s seen it is raving about this pool party scene in particular. I really like this review.
