Here's Why You'll See Trump's Face When You Google "Idiot"

Now you know

According to Huffington Post, Congress wanted to know why searching the term "idiot" on Google Images resulted in photos of the president, and Google CEO Sundar Pichai had the unfortunate task of finding a polite way of putting what it is we're all thinking: It's because he's an idiot.

Instead, Pichai said, "We provide search today for any time you type in a keyword. We, as Google, have gone out and crawled and stored copies of billions of their pages in our index, and we take the keyword and match it against the pages and rank them based on over 200 signals." In other words: A lot of people on the internet have used Trump's name and "idiot" in tandem.

I cannot imagine how hard Pichai had to try to stifle back laughter when Representative Zoe Lofgren suggested "a little man sitting behind the curtain" was causing the POTUS to appear atop such a silly search, but he persevered with only the slightest grin, noting that the company does not "manually intervene" in any search results.

Since the news broke of this congressional explanation, Trump's face has now taken over the "idiot" Google Images search. Congrats, idiot: You played yourself.

Lauryn Hill vibes

Lizzo gave her first performance at an award show at the MTV Movie and TV Awards last night, and her live rendition of "Juice" was inspired by Sister Act 2. The gospel, according to Lizzo, involved a lot of twerking.

The singer started her performance wearing a purple robe similar to the one that Lauryn Hill wore during the performance of "Joyful, Joyful" at the end of the film. She also chose to include an offstage moment that directly mirrored the film. While her dancers were waiting backstage in robes, someone told them that "Lizzo says take off your robes." In Sister Act 2, a stage manager told students waiting backstage, "The teacher says take off your robes."

Lizzo's dancers then performed on the risers set up behind her, with some of the moves taken directly from the film. Lizzo and her team also led the audience, including Chilling Adventures of Sabrina's Ross Lynch and Captain Marvel's Brie Larson, in some vocal scales from the film.

For a first awards show performance, Lizzo definitely came at it like a pro. The only thing missing was a cameo from Whoopi Goldberg. Watch the full performance, below.

Delevingne shared why they chose now

Last week, Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson officially confirmed the rumor that they're dating, with Delevingne posting an Instagram video of the two of them kissing. Now, in a new interview, she revealed why they confirmed the rumors. Basically, it was in celebration of Pride.

In the interview with E! News at the TrevorLIVE Gala, Delevingne was asked why the pair chose this moment to take their relationship public, and she answered: "Because it is Pride, it's been 50 years since Stonewall happened, and I don't know... It's been just about our one year anniversary so, why not?"

Why not, indeed? Delevingne also said that the kissing video was "just a little something," which makes sense. After all, the couple were recently spotted lugging around a kinky sex bench, so some simple kissing must feel pretty elementary.

At the Gala, Delevingne shouted out Benson during her speech too, though not by name. "I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are," she said. "She's one of the people who help me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought." I'm swooning.
