It's based on a true story

I love strippers. I love true crime. I love Cardi B. I love a good tale of scam. Someone apparently loves me, because they've put all of these elements together to make a movie about a group of former sex workers who started a lucrative scheme that involved drugging rich clients and running up their credit cards into the five and six digits. According to Shadow & Act, Cardi is starring in it alongside Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Lili Reinhart, and Keke Palmer. Consider this my official RSVP for the first available screening because *Mo'Nique voice* I would like to see it.

Hustlers is based on a 2015 article by Jessica Pressler that appeared in New York magazine and is published online at The Cut called "The Hustlers At Scores." It documents the scam from the perspective of Rosalyn Keo, one of the women charged when authorities busted the operation. She was sentenced to five years probation in 2016 for charges including grand larceny.

This is Cardi's first feature film, and it means that art is imitating life for my favorite former "stripper hoe." I couldn't be prouder of her. I'm excited for this movie, and the trailer isn't even out yet! Production begins in New York City—the place where the real-life events transpired—this week.

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.
