No Filter: Tessa Thompson Sure Knows How To Put Out A Fire

This week felt especially validating as I learned that my favorite couple of all time, Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor, got together because Holland slid into Sarah’s DMs. Also, Kristen Stewart is maybe the new Shia LeBoeuf and nobody understands Bella Thorne (?!). We have some pressing questions about Tessa Thompson’s continued devotion to vagina pants. I don’t understand anything.

I’m aware that Fiona Apple herself isn’t the gayest thing King Princess posted this week, but this video of my Breakup Queen explaining how this collaboration came to pass has filled me with such joy… or as much joy as one can muster for a song that I generally listen to while sobbing on the bathroom floor after a major heartbreak!!!!!

Hayley Kiyoko is an art.

I got you this Evan Rachel Wood in a red jumpsuit. In my mind she’s here to repair your car à la Betty Cooper.

Kehlani had a baby shower where she revealed that her upcoming daughter’s name will be Adeya (pronounced a-DAY-uh, not Adia) and ALSO WHO LOOKS THIS GOOD WHEN THEY’RE 3423432523 WEEKS PREGNANT??? Honestly.

Really into this “I-just-stepped-out-of-GhostWorld” aesthetic that Amandla is going for these days.

Tessa Thompson is literally so hot she caused a fire, I guess? Checks out.

I’m just here for calling one’s partner “the hottest dog of all.”

You’re killing me, Geiger. Daddy’s kitten reigns supreme as the hottest dog of all.

Stephanie Beatriz is committed to the bit.
