Turn up

This year's Governors Ball was truly a blessed one. Instead of getting rain all weekend (a Gov Ball tradition), we got a healthy dose of vitamin D. With the weather on our side, we turned all the way up—especially when some of our favorite performers, like Halsey and Yeah Yeah Yeahs, waded deep into the crowd to perform some of their biggest hits.

And though this year's fest has officially come to an end, the excitement and good vibes will live in our memories until next year.

See who we kicked it with during this year's festival, below. Until next time, Gov Ball!

We don't know about you, but we'll be trying to emulate Wolf Alice's energy all summer long.

We don't know what's better: this giddy smile from Yeah Yeah Yeahs' frontwoman Karen O or the fact that she stage-dived like a champ into the crowd during "Cheated Hearts."

Jack White served up some Edward Scissorhands vibes during his killer set.

SATURDAY
LANY lead singer Paul Klein debuted a new 'do during Gov Ball. When asked about the change, he said, "It was just time. I cut it in my bathroom." Same.

The underboob trend is here to stay, thanks to Kelela.

Halsey put on one of the most unforgettable shows during the weekend. Not only did she get all up in the crowd during her performance of "Colors," but she gave an amazing shout-out to Pride month during her performance of "Strangers," while a montage of boys making out with boys, girls making out with girls, and boys and girls making out played on a loop. She's the bisexual icon we do not deserve, but we're glad we have.

Hi, Chris Rock!

Billie Eilish had a memorable day at her first-ever Governors Ball. When we chatted with her after her performance, she said that Chris Rock was on the side stage during her set. When he later introduced himself, he said his daughters absolutely love her and he's a big fan. "All I could think of was, OMG, the zebra from Madagascar is talking to me!" Same, girl.

Thank the prep school gods

My day has just gotten 100 times better, because it was just announced that Gossip Girl is officially getting a reboot. All I need to know now is whether Kristen Bell is down to still be the narrator.

The company announced its sustainability plan, and it's pretty impressive

Yesterday, Zara, one of the largest global fashion retailers, announced its sustainability plan for the next five years, which includes its goal to make its collections from 100 percent sustainable materials before the year 2025. Given just how many collections and pieces Zara puts out each year, this goal is pretty ambitious. Zara's parent company, Inditex, has also announced that its other brands, which include Zara Home, Massimo Dutti, and Pull&Bear, will be following suit.

Is this keeping you up at night?

In celebration of SpongeBob's solar return (it's the 20th anniversary of SpongeBob SquarePants' first episode), HipDot—best known for their influencer collaborations and marble packaging—launched a skin-care and makeup collection inspired by everyone's favorite underwater sponge. For the most part, the collection is everything you'd expect; the eyeshadow palette features show-appropriate shades like Bikini Bottom Blue, and there's a coconut oil-infused lip gloss called Jelly Fish. Cute, right?
