Well hello to you too Gigi, I love the shoe!

Okay, so yes, this is very late but COME ON THIS DAMN COUPLE UGH! Again, I am famously too single for this!

Something about… just looking at Tessa Thompson makes my heart literally stop beating in my chest and then I start blushing and feeling faint? Is that… normal?

I straight up lol’d at “lesbian hand rub”

Tell me baby why don’t you love me, when I make me so damn easy to love?

The Auntie Agenda continues apace!

Une petite music moment from Clay, I think so!

Legends supporting legends!

Nothing but love for Haley, always.

  1. A) Niecey Nash is so absolutely precious. Those videos made me want to rollerskate.

    B) the piece from Hayley Kiyoko hurt my heart. She’s so fucking great, I hate the thought of her feeling sad for even a moment, let alone sad about her beautiful face.
