Surprise! The #Kravis Wedding was Problematic

Why Dolce & Gabbana is a brand you should NOT support — here are some queer companies you should check out instead

Kris Jenner is a mastermind. Say what you will about her — my litany of grievances is far-far too long to air here — but she’s good at her job. Unfortunately for us (not her, she’s rich!), her chief roles and responsibilities include profiting from attention, scandal, and dare we mention controversy. All too often this comes at the expense of marginalized groups — from the Black women whose aesthetics the KarJenners exploit, the Black men they fetishize for clout, the employees they underpay and mistreat, plus scores of people who are collateral damage in the wake of their empire.

The latest eye-roll-inducing — but no doubt highly lucrative— publicity stunt orchestrated by Kris Jenner is none other than her daughter’s branded wedding. Yes, you heard that right. Branded. Wedding. And the brand of choice? None other than the ceaselessly problematic Dolce & Gabbana.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker Are Dating

The reality star and the blink-182 drummer have been official since December.

Today is a hard day to be both a blink-182 stan and a Kardashian hater.

Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian have been dating since December, E! News confirms, after years of romance rumors, sharing expensive dinners, and scheduling playdates between their kids.

Machine Gun Kelly surprised everyone when it was announced that his pop-punk project Tickets to My Downfall debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 this week.

The project sold over 126,000 copies and is followed in close suit by other punky records such as Juice WRLD's Legends Never Die.

As BLM protests continue to swell across the country, along with an overall "burn this house down" type of attitude, Tickets to My Downfall thrived this week because of its timing more than its content.
