She revealed that she's studying to take the bar exam

Kim Kardashian West, attorney-at-law, is a title you might have to get used to hearing. In a new interview with Vogue, the reality show star and socialite revealed she is studying to become a lawyer, despite never having completed college.

And how is that possible, you ask? Vogue anticipated the confusion and explained that, in four states—including California, which is where Kardashian West lives—there's an option called "reading the law" which offers a path to becoming a law through apprenticeship. Currently, Kardashian participates in 18 hours of supervised study each week with a team of lawyers.

Apparently, it was Kardashian West's visit to The White House to advocate for the release of Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old great-grandmother who had been sentenced to life in prison in 1996 on a first-time non-violent drug charge, that her pursuit to pass the bar. She explained, "The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency... and I'm sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, shit. I need to know more." Of course, she was backed up by actual lawyers who could fill in the blanks for her, she added, "but I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society. I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more." This summer, Kardashian West has a "baby bar" exam which will allow her to continue her apprenticeship for three more years, and then to take the actual bar exam.

She also shared a bit of her current curriculum with Vogue, and apparently she's pretty much aced part of it. She explains that, in the first year, "you have to cover three subjects: criminal law, torts, and contracts. To me, torts is the most confusing, contracts the most boring, and crim law I can do in my sleep. Took my first test, I got a 100. Super easy for me. The reading is what really gets me. It's so time-consuming. The concepts I grasp in two seconds."

I'm loving this new context to consider Kardashian West in, TBH. If we have a reality-television star as president, why not have another smarter, prettier one take him down?

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.
