She’ll play Kitty

One day, Courtney Love might get her own Lifetime biopic, but, for now, she’s happy to star in someone else’s. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the rock icon and sometimes actress has signed on to star in the network’s upcoming Menendez brother movie as Kitty Menendez. A history lesson for the millennials in the building: In 1989, two privileged L.A. bros named Lyle and Erik Menendez were convicted of murdering their parents, the entertainment executive Jose Menendez and his wife, Kitty. The murders and the lurid details surrounding them were a tabloid sensation, and it stood as the quintessentially L.A. crime until O.J. Simpson took that mantle several years later.

According to Lifetime, the movie will spotlight the "extreme abuse the brothers endured at their father's hands, while their mother looked the other way." The brothers were arrested after authorities noticed that they were spending all of their inheritance in the wake of their parents’ deaths and after Erik confessed the crimes to his psychologist. The brothers and the father have yet to be cast, but Courtney Love, who most recently appeared on episodes of Empire, brings a certain star power you don’t usually get from these Lifetime biopics, so Leonardo DiCaprio and Jake Gyllenhaal should call their agents and clear their schedules. Meanwhile, NBC and Law & Order guru Dick Wolf are putting together an anthology series about the Menendez brothers called Law & Order: True Crime — The Menendez Brothers, proving that the true crime trend is here to stay.

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.
