Jennifer Lawrence hasn't forgotten about Catt Sadler. Neither should we.

Jennifer Lawrence just made it abundantly clear she hasn't been too happy with E! Network lately.

Chatting with Howard Stern about her new film, "Red Sparrow," and the Academy Awards coming up March 4, Lawrence dug into the entertainment network's handling of pay inequity and the negative effects of one of its most notable shows, "Fashion Police."

Last year, former E! News co-host Catt Sadler discovered her male counterpart, Jason Kennedy, was earning nearly double her pay, even though they had similar levels of experience and on-air responsibilities. After the network refused to raise her salary to an even remotely comparable figure, Sadler quit.

"I have two decades experience in broadcasting and started at the network the very same year as my close friend and colleague that I adore," Sadler said in a statement. "But how can I operate with integrity and stay on at E! if they’re not willing to pay me the same as him?"

More than two months after the incident, Lawrence still hasn't forgotten about Sadler's treatment.

"They aren’t bringing another co-star up,” she told Stern, noticing E!'s hesitancy to embrace another female host.

She continued, “They keep cycling these women and I am going, 'Is that so you don’t have to pay another woman equally to Jason [Kennedy]? Is this just a way to still maintain that you are not paying women equally?'"

Lawrence let slip in February that she's executive producing a docuseries about the #MeToo movement alongside Sadler.

Lawrence laid in to her aversion to E! after noting she may turn down an Oscars red carpet interview with the network's Ryan Seacrest, who's fending off allegations that he sexually assaulted a former E! stylist. She isn't too fond of the network's "Fashion Police," either, claiming "There was a time [the show's panelists] were just mean about people’s bodies."

“There is a lot to think about with E!" Lawrence mulled over.

The Oscar-winning actress has been an outspoken critic of Hollywood's gender pay gap for years.

She first made waves on the issue in 2015, penning an essay in Lenny newsletter, "Why Do I Make Less Than My Male Co-Stars?"

"I didn't want to seem 'difficult' or 'spoiled,'" Lawrence wrote of deciding against negotiating higher pay for her work on "American Hustle." Society expected her to prioritize her own likability — something that doesn't happen as much with men — the essay suggested. "At the time, that seemed like a fine idea, until I saw the payroll on the internet and realized every man I was working with definitely didn't worry about being 'difficult' or 'spoiled.'"

"I'm over trying to find the 'adorable' way to state my opinion and still be likable!" Lawrence concluded in her piece. "Fuck that."

Sometimes it seems like social media is too full of trolls and misinformation to justify its continued existence, but then something comes along that makes it all worth it.

Apparently, a song many of us have never heard of shot to the top of the charts in Italy in 1972 for the most intriguing reason. The song, written and performed by Adriano Celentano and is called "Prisencolinensinainciusol" which means...well, nothing. It's gibberish. In fact, the entire song is nonsense lyrics made to sound like English, and oddly, it does.

Occasionally, you can hear what sounds like a real word or phrase here and there—"eyes" and "color balls died" and "alright" a few times, for example—but it mostly just sounds like English without actually being English. It's like an auditory illusion and it does some super trippy things to your brain to listen to it.

Plus the video someone shared to go with it is fantastic. It's gone crazy viral because how could it not.

Twins born with separate fathers are rare in the human population. Although there isn't much known about heteropaternal superfecundation — as it's known in the scientific community — a study published in The Guardian, says about one in every 400 sets of fraternal twins has different fathers.

Simon and Graeme Berney-Edwards, a gay married couple, from London, England both wanted to be the biological father of their first child.

"We couldn't decide on who would be the biological father," Simon told The Daily Mail. "Graeme said it should be me, but I said that he had just as much right as I did."

President-elect Joe Biden has sweeping plans for expanding LGBTQ rights when he takes office in January 2021. Among them, a plan to reverse Donald Trump's near ban on allowing transgender people to serve in the military.

In 2016, President Obama allowed transgender individuals to serve openly in the U.S. military and have access to gender-affirming psychological and medical care.

However, the Trump administration reversed course in 2017, when Trump dropped a surprise tweet saying the military "cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail."
