Earlier this month, T.I. revealed on the "Ladies Like Us" podcast that he takes his daughter, Deyjah, to the gynecologist each year to "check her hymen." "Deyjah's 18, just graduated high school now and she's attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself," T.I. said on the podcast. "And yes, not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen. Yes, I go with her."

No surprise, people found it weird and controlling. The podcast episode has since been taken down, but the ensuing backlash is something T.I. now refers to as "hymen-gate."

London has a lot of great sight-seeing sites: Big Ben, the River Thames, Buckingham Palace, and ... Jeff Goldblum?

Yep, that's right. On Wednesday, July 18, Twitter users reported seeing a 25-foot statue of Jeff Goldblum in front of Tower Bridge in London. The effigy features the "Jurassic Park" actor half-naked and lying down. It's also quite detailed.

The Goldblum statue has already attracted the attention of a lot of locals and visitors.

Some (most?) days, it feels like the world is going to hell in a handbasket.

No one gets along anymore (or at least it feels that way). Social media is like a bad ex who loves toying with our moods. The news cycle is downright exhausting. Oh! And climate change is literally destroying our planet faster than ever before.

Thank you, K.C. Green, for blessing us with this all-too-real meme.

Social media turned a little more orange than usual on June 1.

It's National Gun Violence Awareness Day, and for the past several years, people have marked the occasion by wearing orange. The tradition was started by the friends and family of Hadiya Pendleton, who was shot and killed in 2013 at the age of 15 on the south side of Chicago. There was nothing particularly unique about Pendleton's death. Every day, innocent children get shot. With her death, however, a community came together to say "enough," similar to the movement we saw after the February 2018 Parkland shooting.

Orange has long been associated with gun safety, typically worn by hunters so they stand out to others while shooting. Safety, not confiscation or regulation, was the driving message of the movement, which made orange the perfect color to represent it.
