On July 21st, a Demi Lovato fan account leaked a picture of Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, and Demi Lovato with Democratic candidate Kamala Harris. Another picture was posted a day later on Harris’s Instagram account. The pictures showed the pop star trio joyfully wrapping their arms around the lefty presidential hopeful at a campaign fundraising event (strikingly similar to a picture of Jay Z and Beyonce at a Hillary Clinton event). Though the three stars seem enthusiastic, none of them made a peep about the event on their social media accounts.
Guys, before you tuck into your avocado toast and soy latte, get your phone out of your man-bag and click on over to The Hollywood Reporter for a discussion of “toxic masculinity.” Batman V.

The third season of Veronica Mars aired on the CW in 2007 and now, 12 years later, Hulu has brought it back. I am what one might call a dedicated "Marshmallow" - a superfan of the titular teen detective who was equal parts sarcastic and hard-boiled.

On July 22nd, former Miss Michigan Kathy Zhu appeared on CNN New Day to discuss the stripping of her title. According to Zhu, Miss World America revoked her title because of her political opinions. The beauty queen gained massive popularity in 2016 as a pro-Trump Chinese immigrant and is active on her @PoliticalKathy Twitter account.

HBO’s Euphoria is easily the weirdest and grossest show of the year thanks to its depraved views of sex. Namely, the show seems to think anything goes with teenagers, whether it's taking sex pointers from porn or even statutory rape. Euphoria keeps up its gross factor with a teen dressed as a sexy nun receiving oral sex and college frat boys sexually assaulting a freshman boy in a perverted Halloween episode that aired on July 21.
Yankees' legend Mariano Rivera (appearing second from left in photo) was inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame today amid much fanfare — and sharp criticism from Daily Beast writer Robert Silverman.

This time ESPN President Jimmy Pitaro really meant it when he told his team to avoid "pure politics."
