A Pop Culture Fix for your Monday, my friends!
+ In an interview with Empire, Janelle Monáe chatted about recording Dirty Computer in Atlanta at the same time Black Panther was filming. She had f Lupita Nyong’o, Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan ’round, and decided she’d like to be in the sequel: “One of my dreams has always been to play Storm. I don’t know if she comes in Black Panther, but it would be a dream to have her in it. I don’t know where they are with that. A lot of women have played Storm and they’ve done an exceptional job, and I would love to be in that line of artists and get to do Storm justice.” Now that’s one of my main dreams too! (I don’t know how Storm could fit into this Black Panther, but if not, I’d like to see Janelle originate a new character!)
+ And here are the season four episode titles for Wynonna Earp. I hope “Look at Them Beans” is a whole episode about Nicole and Waverly getting a cat and marveling at its toe beans.
+ Keke Palmer is on the cover of Cosmo this month and the profile by Hunter Harris is wonderful. (Spoiler alert: She loves Love Island as much as you do.)
+ From Emily VanDerWerff over at Vox: The quiet power of Eve Lindley playing a romantic lead on AMC’s Dispatches From Elsewhere.
+ Quvenzhané Wallis will star in Kevin Durant’s basketball drama”on Apple TV. Expect Natalie and I to have a lot of feelings about it!
