Also thinking about: this pink hat

So Rihanna stepped out with her newly official romantic partner, rapper A$AP Rocky, finally confirming the rumors and proving that they are, as we assumed, the hottest couple alive.

Move aside any other couple vying for our attention — Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly's ceaseless PDA, the can't-look-away strangeness of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, even the lowkey hotness of Kat Dennings and Andrew WK — fact that Rihanna is dating the man known as "The Male Rihanna" is taking up all the airspace.

Tristyn Bailey Is Not Your Key to Clout

People are reportedly using the Tristyn Bailey case for clout on social media ... because we live in the worst timeline

When 13-year old Tristyn Bailey was stabbed to death by a classmate in early May, her community mourned.

In St. Johns County, near Jacksonville Florida, the 13-year old cheerleader was initially reported missing and eventually found with 114 stab wounds, left mutilated in the woods. After a gruelling few weeks of search and investigation, the suspect, Aiden Fucci, a fellow classmate, has been charged with Bailey's murder.

Her family released a statement to the public on Thursday May 27th, expressing their gratitude for the support they have received over the past month, saying thank you to "those in St. Johns that have helped from the Mother's Day search, the vigils, remembrances and memorials."

They continued, "With the press conference sharing details of this heinous crime, the caring and love shown from the people and businesses to raise up the memory of Tristyn and the resolve of our community serve as a beacon of light in the darkness ... We do ask for your continued respect for our privacy as well as of Tristyn's teammates and her school. As we move forward, we will seek to keep Tristyn's memory alive and the spirit of the community."

If Jennifer Lopez Is Seeing Exes Again, Diddy Wants His Shot

With that messy post on Instagram, was Diddy shooting his shot?

JLo, the Versace dress, and Diddy. Are they all in the past? Should they be?

If you had asked us months ago — maybe after Jennifer Lopez's first rumored split with A-Rod in March, maybe after they called off their engagement, maybe when they finally confirmed their split — which one of Jennifer Lopez's exes we could see her getting back together with, we probably would have said Diddy.

Dating from September 1999 to February 2001, the pair gave us a relatively short but drama filled entanglement— lest we forget the infamous club shootout. Combined with the iconic '90s/early 2000s outfits that still give us style inspiration and bandana envy (it was Diddy, after all, who was on JLo's arm as she wore the notorious Versace dress for the first time), the two are a quintessential couple of the early 2000s era.

Seth Rogen Says He Won't Work With James Franco Again

The actor recently spoke with the Sunday Times.

Seth Rogen James Franco

When the Sunday Times asked Seth Rogen about his current relationship with his old friend and frequent collaborator James Franco, the interview took a slightly darker turn.

"What I can say is that I despise abuse and harassment," Rogen said when asked if he believed the accusations of sexual misconduct that had been leveled against his former co-star a few years ago. "I would never cover or conceal the actions of someone doing it, or knowingly put someone in a situation where they were around someone like that."

When asked if he has worked with Franco since the allegations arose, Rogen said, "The truth is that I have not, and I do not plan to right now." James Franco had been accused publicly in 2018 by five women of sexual misconduct, including coercion and exploitation.

Sarah Tither-Kaplan and Toni Gaal additionally filed a lawsuit in 2019 saying that Franco used his now-closed Studio 4 acting school as "a pipeline of young women who were subjected to his personal and professional sexual exploitation in the name of education." The actor settled the suit this past February.

James Franco texts 17-year-old\u200b

Additionally, actress Charlyne Yi wrote on Instagram last month that she attempted to quit Franco's The Disaster Artist after she had learned about the accusations, but said the production had "tried to bribe me with a bigger acting role." She called out Seth Rogen specifically as an "enabler" who had stood by James Franco. She also criticized a sketch that aired on SNL featuring Seth that "enabled Franco preying on children. Right after Franco was caught." Yi was referring to an incident in 2014 when Franco got caught propositioning sex to a 17-year-old.

"I do look back at a joke I made on Saturday Night Live in 2014, and I very much regret making that joke," Rogen said. "It was a terrible joke, honestly. And I also look back to that interview in 2018 where I comment that I would keep working with James, and the truth is that I have not and I do not plan to right now." He also clarified that it was not a coincidence that their professional relationship ended after the allegations emerged.

But as for his friendship: "I don't know if I can define that right now during this interview," he says. "I can say it, um, you know, it has changed many things in our relationship and our dynamic." When asked if that was a painful thing to realize, Rogen said, "Yeah. But not as painful and difficult as it's for a lot of other people involved. I have no pity for myself in this situation."
