On her new series

In episode four of her Dangerous Woman Diaries, Ariana Grande revealed a letter she wrote to the victims of the Manchester bombing on February 22, 2018 (eight months after the attack happened).

The series follows Grande through her 2017 Dangerous Woman tour and shows the lead-up to the Sweetener album. The fourth episode shows Grande's devotion to meeting her fans and also addresses her One Love Manchester concert, which benefitted the victims of the bombing that happened at her concert. The episode does not show footage from that night but gives us a little insight into how she publicly dealt with the attack.

She starts out talking about how she finds music to be an "escape," and "the safest thing I've ever known." "Music—pop music, stan culture—is something that brings people together, introduces them to some of their best friends, and makes them feel like they can be themselves."

She continues to say that, "When something so opposite and so poisonous takes place in your world that is supposed to be everything but that… it is shocking and heartbreaking in a way that seems impossible to fully recover from."

She then addresses the victims of the Manchester attack and tells them how their perseverance inspired her and everyone around her who was also affected by the attack. "Their love, strength, and unity showed me, my team, my dancers, band, and entire crew not to be defeated," she says. "To continue during the scariest and saddest of times. To not let hate win. But instead, love as loudly as possible, and to appreciate every moment."

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
