Someone heard my most intimate prayers

Issa Rae: an awkward Black girl and an actual CoverGirl; LaKeith Stanfield: a scruffy creative with tattoos. I can't think of two people I enjoy looking at more, and now I don't have to imagine what their chemistry might be like together.

Deadline just announced that the two actors will star together in The Photograph, an upcoming film written by Stella Meghie who directed Everything, Everything. The Photograph is being produced by Will Packer alongside James Lopez, and Rae will also serve as one of the films executive producers because she's a boss, duh.

We don't know much about the plot yet except that it's about "intertwining love stories in the past and present." What I do know is that both of them have been priming me for this moment. Stanfield plays the weird friend on FX's Atlanta, but he was a charming partner opposite Tessa Thompson in Sorry to Bother You. And in Someone Great, the upcoming Netflix breakup comedy, he is in full heartthrob mode. Rae has been serving sexy vibes on Insecure for years and she's leading an upcoming rom-com with Kumail Nanjiani that's literally called Lovebirds.

I don't 'ship a lot of heterosexual couples, but I'm invested in whatever photograph Stanfield and Rae want to show me.

Lights off

"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.
