A chilling ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch’ series is coming to TV

Today is...

National Ice Cream Cone Day!

News of the Day:

+ A horror reimagining of Sabrina the Teenage Witch is coming to TV. Titled The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, the show will draw inspiration from cult favorites like Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist. Probably the most horrifying thing about this adaptation, though, will be the likely erasure of TV history’s favorite talking animal: Salem, Sabrina’s wisecracking black cat. 

+ Khloé Kardashian and Emma Grede's size-inclusive denim line, Good American, just launched a new collection. What's more, Season 4 includes a comfy new addition, sweats. Available in black, white, and red—with sizes ranging from 00 to 24—the sweats are available here.

+ The Guerrilla Girls’ decades of hard work has definitely paid off—a new art gallery focusing on women artists is opening this month. Sara Kay, the founder of the Professional Organization for Women in the Arts, is opening the Sara Kay Gallery in New York’s Lower East Side on September 28. The gallery’s inaugural exhibit will feature works from Audrey B. Heckler’s personal collection, so set your calendars.

+ Move over, Justin Bieber, there’s a new king of tour merch. Harry Styles kicked off his first solo tour earlier this week and, to commemorate this occasion, debuted T-shirts, pins, notebooks, and sweatshirts emblazoned with “Treat people with kindness.” Other products include a heavy dose of millennial pink, as well as limited-edition tees for each individual tour date. Unfortunately, the merch is not available online yet.


+ BECCA’s fan-favorite highlighters are now available in mini sizes. Along with being half the price of a regular-sized highlighter, the brand also added a new limited-edition shade called Vanilla Quartz. Get one of each here.


Deal of the Day:

With a change in seasons comes a change in wardrobes, which might leave you feeling like you have absolutely nothing to wear. Thankfully, J. Crew understands our need for new staples and has come through with a sale of up to 40 percent off of their fall favorites. Empty your wallet ASAP, here.

Advice of the Day:

"Don’t try so hard to fit in, and certainly don’t try so hard to be different… just try hard to be you." — Zendaya

While the song should serve as a reminder to your exes

Just a day after dropping new single "Nunya," featuring Dom Kennedy, Kehlani has released the winter-wonderland visuals to go along with. The singer, NYLON November cover star, and mother-to-be rocks some of the best winter 'fits I've seen in a while, including a glorious puffer jacket that could double as a down comforter that I absolutely need in my life right now.

Kehlani is clearly living her best life up in some snow-filled forest hideaway, vibing on the beach at sunset and sipping on something bubbly as she coolly reminds nosy exes that who she's with is "nunya business." There's not much of a story line (unlike her recent "Nights Like This" video); the main takeaway is that Kehlani is busy dancing through a forest, missing no one and chilling amongst people who are clearly not the subjects of the song.

Kehlani is only two short months away from bringing baby Adeya into the world, who she thanked for helping her get through the video process. "Shot that 7 months pregnant in da snow..." Kehlani wrote on Twitter, adding, "thank u baby for da motivation, mommy was FROZE."

Even from the womb, Adeya has been hustling hard alongside her momma. Twitter user @ODtheMC pointed out that this is already her second music video appearance, and she's not even been born.

Get some mulled wine ready and escape into Kehlani's winter getaway, below. Stay tuned for her forthcoming mixtape, While We Wait, out on February 22.

As in Black Panther Political Party leader

It's been a running joke that the Black parents/grandparents of millennials were really confused about all of the Black Panther hoopla ahead of its 2018 release. Many of them were anticipating a movie about members of the Black Panther Political Party and didn't know who the hell T'Challa was. Well, those people are about to have their moment, and we're about to have another one.

Variety is reporting that Fred Hampton, the Black Panther leader at the center of the upcoming biopic Jesus Was My Homeboy, could be played by none other than Daniel Kaluuya. Apparently, he is in negotiations for the role. And he's not the only Black Panther alum in the mix. The Warner Bros. project is being produced by Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler. The same article reports that the forever swoon-worthy Lakeith Stanfield—who appeared with Kaluuya in Jordan Peele's Get Out—is also in negotiations, to play William O'Neal, an FBI informant who infiltrated the Black Panther Party.

Coogler and Charles King are putting together a dream cast to tell a difficult story. Hampton was killed by the Chicago Police Department, while his pregnant girlfriend lay next to him, thanks in part to information they received from O'Neal. Whenever it's out, I strongly recommend having Black Panther queued up as a palate cleanser.
