... This is, by far, the most adorable.
Seems like Blue Ivy was this tiny, elusive little baby and now she's this tiny, elusive little girl who's got the best of both parents' worlds in her face -- she's positively adorable, and if you can believe it, already 4 years old and looking so much bigger. This is gonna be one tall young woman. Check the rare pic out:

That's so ... heavy, you know? You probably recognized a good number of those cases just from the descriptions, but hearing them all in a sequence is such a crushing experience. That celebrities like Rihanna and Beyonce were involved just means that the video will get amplified that much more, which can only be a good thing.
And they're not all cases that can just be chalked up to a random police officer being super racist and paranoid -- it would be easier if they could. A guy holding a fake gun in a Walmart (where they usually sell actual guns, by the way) would probably never have been shot if some racist hadn't called the police. The same is true of Tamir Rice, who was just playing in a park but somebody called the police, so an officer arrived expecting to find a kid with a gun. Because the problem with racism is that it's systemic, involving so many people to varying degrees. But this video aims to get people to change as much about the world as they can.
The video was released Wednesday, on the anniversary of that monster George Zimmerman's acquittal.
There's just one big -- huge -- problem with the video's goal. ...

Okay, it's not that stealing Beyonce's look for prom doesn't make you look amazing, but ... we're just not getting why this is such a huge deal.
We don't want to rain over this girl's parade, but ... this isn't quite the feat that everybody seems to think that it is.
Like, maybe just seeing the photos of this high school girl's prom dress will dazzle you, too:

You know how they say that the key to success is to have fun and be yourself? We know that this will shock you, but Kendra Wilkinson's approach is a little different.
Mostly because she's a rage monster and she doesn't seem to ever enjoy doing anything, ever. But, hey, at least she's being herself ... her deeply unlikable self.
So Kendra's song (which is out today, so brace yourselves) is "Lost In Space," which would lead any normal person to think of the famous television series by the same name. And no, Kendra isn't too young to have heard of it. The show played in syndication during the '90s. There was a damn movie version with Matt LeBlanc, like, 18 years ago.
But no -- Kendra thought that the most obvious video concept for her song is "cheesy." And it might be, but ... what did she expect? This girl really thought she was gonna somehow get magically catapulted to Beyonce levels of stardom. So, like, we can all add delusions of grandeur to our mental lists of Kendra's various issues.
Despite Hank Baskett's attempts to calm her fury, she's unconvinced. And that doesn't really change even when we see her in costume:

When your "theory" involves the Illuminati and demons, it might be time to seriously get some long-overdue help.
Tila Tequila's taking aim at Beyonce ... basically because Beyonce's a hot topic of conversation, and Tila Tequila can't not attract negative attention. Remember when she chimed in that she, too, believes that the Earth is flat?
When you're basically best known for having repeatedly made statements that praise one of the biggest monsters in human history, people aren't exactly surprised when you go after a popular singer, right?
Now, that's actually relatively mild for Tila Tequila. In reality, Beyonce's just being Beyonce -- she's not trying to be "hood" or anything else in particular. No, Tila isn't somehow more "hood" for living in Houston (seriously? Houston?). And yes, it is absurd for an Asian woman to refer to herself as a "white nationalist," though it's still as disgusting as it is when anyone refers to themselves as white nationalists.
But she's Tila Tequila, and she'll hold whatever horrible view she thinks will get just the right reaction.
She then elaborated on her thoughts about Beyonce. And it's WAY out there:

Hey, so, remember when Kylie Jenner made a seemingly innocuous innocuous post captioned with some "Lemonade" lyrics (specifically, from "Hold Up," which is definitely the most threatening-slash-romantic of the songs)? And remember how we pointed out that it might be commentary on Tyga?
And we super called this.
Because now that Kylie and Tyga have had it -- officially -- and Kylie's doing some emotional convalescing or whatever, she's playing around with some (pretty horrific) Snapchat filters. And ... singing "Lemonade" lyrics.
See if you read into this what we did:

What would we ever do without Ellen?
We think that we're finally emotionally recovered from watching "Lemonade." Mostly. Listening to any album can be an emotional experience, but Beyonce's "visual album" takes you on a gripping journey and it's not one easily forgotten.
And the most memorable scene -- not to mention the, in our opinion, most enjoyable song -- is "Hold Up." You know, the one where Beyonce strolls down the street in that lively yellow dress ... twirling a baseball bat ... and wrecks cars, windows, and fire hydrants while explosions follow in her wake.
One of our biggest Halloween costume predictions for this year is that look, by the way. The dress, the hair, and the baseball bat -- we're calling it. Nobody's gonna pull off the look as well as Beyonce does, of course, but that'll be part of the humor of the costume.
But you don't have to wait until Halloween to see Ellen's brilliant parody video ... and surprise guest appearance:
