Once Again, There Are Too Many Milks Once Again, There Are Too Many Milks

In May, Jezebel wrote about the ubiquity of milks—specifically, about the wave of increasingly specific and weird alternative milks flooding the dairy aisle (despite some being non-dairy, as it were).

Goodbye, Sweet Horse Goodbye, Sweet Horse

It was Monday morning when I first learned of Lady Gaga has a horse named Arabella (Latin for “yield to prayer”), which seems like a gross oversight on someone’s part (mine, most likely).

Normani and Sam Smith Wanna Dance With Strangers, and Bhad Bhabie (Sorry) Does It Again

Overall yes, with a couple of caveats: Sam Smith and Normani, “Dancing With a Stranger” – I haven’t stopped listening to this since this morning, which is a testament to two things: How good Normani sounds on this R&B dance number, and the catchiness of the hook.

Since losing his Senate race against Ted Cruz, human string-bean Beto O’Rourke has demurred on whether he’s ready to run for president of the United States. But is that all there is to it? Could Beto already be campaigning for a 2020 run? And if not, is he doing okay, like personally?
