Just one of many scary incidents for the singer this month

On Friday, police arrested an alleged stalker at Taylor Swift's Tribeca townhouse after investigating a reported break-in. According to The Associated Press, police found 22-year-old Florida man Roger Alvarado asleep in Swift's bed.

Alvarado—who was also arrested on February 13 for breaking the front door of Swift's home with a shovel—was charged with stalking, burglary, criminal mischief, and trespassing.

This isn't the first time Swift has had to deal with a stalker breaking in or attempting to do so. On April 3, one of Swift's stalkers pleaded guilty to violating a restraining order the singer had filed against him after he followed Swift after a concert and sent threatening emails to her father. 

And in the past month alone, the singer has had more than her fair share of scary experiences. April 10, a Connecticut man robbed a bank and drove to Swift's Rhode Island home, throwing the stolen money over the fence in an attempt to "impress" her, USA Today reported. Less than a week later on April 14, police arrested a masked man from Colorado outside of Swift's Beverly Hills home after finding him with a knife, rope, and ammunition, according to The Denver Post

In both of these instances, along with Friday's incident in New York City, Swift was—thankfully—not home. 

As ridiculous as it may sound that this man allegedly broke into Swift's home just to nap in her bed, it's definitely not something to joke about. Several replies to The Associated Press's tweet about the incident, for example, are jokes—and at the singer's expense, which is even more inappropriate. Even if you don't like Swift or her music, it doesn't change the fact that this was probably an extremely unsettling and traumatic incident, as it would be for anyone.

Here's hoping things calm down for Swift soon, because no one should have to feel afraid for their safety—especially in their own home.

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.
