Technical issues? Doesn't matter, Lizzo still slays

You can't stop Lizzo from shining. During her performance at the second weekend of Coachella, the festival literally could not handle all the "Juice" Lizzo had to provide, and the sound cut out for her disco-tinged body positive anthem. But that's no big deal when you're a queen like Lizzo. Her flute, Sasha, was brought to the stage—and Lizzo absolutely shredded.

"If they ain't gonna get the music right, I'm gonna get the music right," Lizzo told the crowd per Variety. "That's why I got my music major." After nailing the flute solo, Lizzo fearlessly went right along with her a cappella performance, and the crowd couldn't get enough. She dedicated the knockout performance to "whoever doubted us and fucked up our sound," which was absolutely perfect.

Audio difficulties aside, Lizzo had no problem making every single moment count at Coachella. During the first weekend, Lizzo surprised another crowd by joining Janelle Monáe onstage for an epic twerk-off.

This past Friday, she also dropped her debut, Cuz I Love You, which you should definitely go turn on at full volume immediately.

HBO dropped the ball on this one

Game of Thrones may have snagged a record number of Emmy nominations, but it's not all thanks to HBO putting its stars up for the awards. Instead, Gwendoline Christie—aka Ser Brienne of Tarth—submitted her own name for consideration via her agent after HBO failed to do so on her behalf. And, naturally, the Emmys recognized her incredible performance and nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series along fellow GoT castmates Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, and Lena Headey. Be your own biggest fan, and it might just end up paying off!

It's pricey, but hear us out

Co-captain of US women's national soccer team and queen of fire hair looks Megan Rapinoe has to keep up with that purple mane just like the rest of us colored-hair folk. Maintaining hair that vivid can be difficult, to say the least, but not impossible—especially when you have a good colorist. Unsurprisingly, Rapinoe's is one of the best. According to a press release, expert colorist and balayage specialist Richard Drews keeps Rapinoe's hair cool-toned and vibrant using Kérastase Blond Absolu Masque Ultra-Violet which is like your favorite purple shampoo times 10.
