-This is a big deal. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are breaking from tradition and avoiding the dog and pony show outside the hospital after welcoming their kid.

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.”

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.”

-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.

-We’re 100 days out from the new Lion King movie, so Disney dropped another trailer.
