Adeya’s mom has got it going on

A post shared by Basit (@basitcom) on

I’m not going to stop posting Basit and Kehlani content sorry.

Has anyone introduced Teddy Geiger to Vanessa Friedman? I think they would have a lot to talk about.

I have to tell you a funny story which is that one and only legendary time I went out drinking with Evan Rachel Wood, I saw a picture of her with her son on her phone background and she sheepishly confessed, “I’m a mom” like she was telling me something potentially dealbreaking and like I do not write about what she posts on Instagram every single week. Reader, it broke no deals.

This week she also posted and then deleted some fun opinions about monogamy!!!

I am loving how the dog playing the Tramp in Lady and the Tramp is a rescue dog and now Tessa Thompson is fostering dogs?!?!!? Please tell me the new music Janelle Monáe is working on for this film is just a 2019 version of “He’s A Tramp (But I Love Him).

My pal and yours Mara Wilson finally got an Instagram and in true Mara form she has already posted three pictures of her cats.


Also, Miley and that person she’s making out with sent that person’s ex husband a weed bouquet for his birthday, so you know, stay classy Miley.

In thumbnail form I straight up thought Kylie was doing this in front of an open refrigerator, which I would honestly respect.

Appreciating Stephanie and my continued commitment to ridiculous cheap Dolls Kill shoes that will fall apart after you wear them twice but hopefully you’re sitting down watching Kacey Musgraves so it isn’t that bad.

You go right to hell Gaby Dunn.

  1. 100% on a dog beach day with Carrie goal. I will borrow all the dogs if I have to make it happen, and of course, bring my bff & her dog. Hmm, do you think if I made flyers in LA and Oregon about queer & Jewish dog day at the beach would get her to come?

    Also, Teddy+Vanessa would make a hot couple! We need to make this happen!
