Boy, bye

Lizzo sat down with actress Jameela Jamil for an in depth conversation about her "journey to self-acceptance," and shared a particularly cutting story about a shitty ex who made negative comments about her body.

She retells the story to Jamil, explaining: "We were laying down and he was like, 'Wow I'm so relaxed when I'm with you,' and I was like cool." But he immediately followed up the compliment with a not-so-nice comment, telling her, "so I showed your pictures to my friends... they said that your face is great but your body needs work." She left that dude soon after, luckily, and Lizzo delightfully added "karma came and whooped his ass." So he got what he deserved for bringing a queen down.

The saddest part for Lizzo was, "It didn't hurt my feelings at first because I believed him." Today, she loves every part of what she sees in the mirror, but she clarifies that it took time to get herself there. As horrible as his words were, she says the instance with her ex was revelatory, noting: "I think, after that, I realized it doesn't matter how small or big or how I look, no one's ever going to be completely happy with it. I'm not going to be able to please everybody with my outward appearance." She added later, "So, all that matters is what I think about it."

Previously, Jamil sat down with singer Sam Smith for an "I Weigh" interview where he opened up about having gotten liposuction at age 12. ""I started therapy a year ago, which is why I think I'm doing this," Smith told her about his own journey towards self-love "I'm starting to dig in deeper and realize this is part of why I'm sad."

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.
