Pussy Riot says "no reasons" were given

Veronika Nikulshina, aka Nika of activist-artist collective Pussy Riot, was arrested as she made her way to the Golden Mask awards in Moscow where she was nominated for an award for experimental theater show Poe.Tri. Nika was accompanied by Alexey Yershov and Maxim Karnaukhov, who were also nominated for the award alongside her.

According to Pussy Riot, who spoke with Dazed about Nika's arrest, very little is known about why she was taken in: "Right at the exit from their apartment Nika, Alexey and Maxim were arrested before going to the Golden Mask theatre awards at the Bolshoi theatre, the main theatre award in Russia, where all three were officially nominated and invited. Police said they need to take them in for a certain check up." The group added that "no reasons" were given other than to check documents, but theorizes that the trio was kept away due to government officials' attendance at the awards ceremony. The three have since been released.

Nika has been jailed and released multiple times since participating in the World Cup protest last summer with Pussy Riot, having performed a demonstration in police uniform on the field. A few months later, Peter Verzilov, who also rushed the fields with Nika, was hospitalized due to suspected poisoning but was able to make a full recovery.

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.
