No Filter: Kehlani Is Having a Love Affair with This Orange Slushie

Welcome back to No Filter, in which we discuss the week in celebrity Instagram and reflect on what it means for ourselves. This was a deeply meaningful week, mostly because of Carmen’s incredibly detailed timeline of Janelle Monáe and Tessa Thompson’s Definitely Happening Relationship. If anything else happened this week, I couldn’t hear it over the roar of Janelle’s cheekbones.

All Danielle Brooks wants is to have a glamorous photo shoot and Yael Stone and Lea DeLaria are here to FUCK WITH HER. Please click through all of these, the expressions are truly priceless.

Is it weird to say someone has cute knees? Laura, you have cute knees.
Have you heard the good news?!?! Our lord and savior Janelle Monáe is pretty much the only thing I want to talk about from here until the end of time.

Do you want to CRY about baby Mary Lambert today? TODAY’S YOUR LUCKY DAY BUCKO.

Brittani Nichols is back in LA where she belongs, making snarky Instagram captions about how cute she is.

These two are at it again. WE GET IT YOU GUYS.

No snark, perfect human Evan Rachel Wood went to Congress to testify on behalf of survivors and she’s doing amazing work.

The dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are part of an elite squad, etc etc.

Slow build, heavy grind 💚

Your ex girlfriend Hayley Kiyoko continues to be unfair about your breakup, this time by heavily flirting with her entire Instgram following.
Sorry but it looks like Kehlani and this orange frozen beverage had an engagement photo shoot in front of this hedge.

Join us next week, when we celebrate the marriage of Kehlani and this slushie forevermore.

  1. That Kehlani photo.

    In lieu of flowers, donations directly to Stef and the Heart and Lung association are requested.

  2. Last week you had a picture of ERWB at rainbow skating at Moonlight Rollerway. It reminded me I haven’t skated in a while. Now this Wednesday(tonight) Al is hanging with a cute friend there(well im hoping she likes me more than a friend). Maybe we will run into ERWB or another famous/no filter lbtq person there? Wish us luck!

      • That would have been great, but sadly no run in. We may do it again next week as we had such a blast.

  3. What is Kehlani’s sexuality? Haven’t seen anything about her that points out her being queer

    • Oh! So she’s bisexual. Just read about her now. Well i’m new to her. Just started following her and her work last month. So i guess that’s why i didn’t know.
