Kittens, one of the oldest T Lo traditions (when you blog for 14 years, you can say such silly things) has returned! In the age of social distancing (and because sites like ours are suddenly bereft of their bread-and-butter: red carpet commentary), we’re bringing the T Lo fam (and anyone else who wants to stop by) together as a community. A community where we never see each other or breathe each other’s air. How very 2020!
For real: let’s make this a daily stop to unwind, reach out, and talk our way through the stress and boredom of our slowly growing nightmare of a lockdown.

Google Arts & Culture’s collection includes the British Museum in London, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Guggenheim in New York City, and literally hundreds of more places where you can gain knowledge about art, history, and science.

Alibhai-Brown is just one of the journalists interviewed in Meghan Markle: Escaping the Crown, the hour-long special airing on Vice TV Tuesday night. Rather than speculating about the sudsy, behind-the-scenes drama of the modern-day fairy-tale-gone-wrong that is “Megxit,” the special outlines why Meghan—faced with a tsunami of sexist and racist media coverage, sapped of her voice and social media platform, and supposedly backed by an institution whose existence is built on inequality and stoic silence—essentially had no choice but to flee the crown, with her new husband and son, Archie, in tow. In between flashbacks to the royal family’s most culturally insensitive moments—take, for example, Princess Michael of Kent’s decision to wear a racist blackamoor brooch to her first lunch with Meghan—talking heads like comedian Sophie Duker deliver millennial spins on what might be the world’s whitest family.
Why, we even have a Harry Styles mini-concert for your listening pleasure:
So settle in, find a comfy seat, and tell us all about your day. Just please: leave the politics, division and fear at the doorstep. This is a place of fun and community.
