MY NEW PLAID PANTS: CK man Anthony Ramos doing crunches with his dog.
NEWNOWNEXT: DC Comics is releasing Pride-themed covers in the month of June, and NewNowNext has the scoop.
KENNETH IN THE (212): When he's dressed up top, but not down below.
EXTRATV: Not sure how serious Prince William is about mending his broken relationship with his brother, Harry, considering he hasn't so much as called him since the explosive interview. He did, however, take time out from walking near a Black woman to mention, “We are very much not a racist family.” The family that owned parts of Africa.
TWITTER: Sharon Osbourne is a horrendous presence in the media, a nexus of vapidity and entitlement who is allowed to pronounce judgment on others while trashing people she does not like. Now, she has exploded in the most defensive and, yes, racist way against co-host Sheryl Underwood for even daring to suggest her buddy Piers Morgan might be racist in his vicious dismissal of Meghan Markle's claims. To see Sharon sputter that she can't be racist, to see her scoff as Sheryl attempts to be conciliatory and to hear her demand to be educated is a perfect example of old, entrenched white people refusing to do any work on racial sensitivity. Unbelievable if she keeps her job after this crap:

COMPLEX: Matthew McConaughey is seriously exploring a run for Texas governor. One of the least serious people in Hollywood, with zero previous community work. He'd be better than what they've got, but this tool better not run as an Independent and muck up Beto O'Rourke's chances. As recently as November, McConaughey didn't even git this whole politics thang:
Look, right now, no, I don’t get politics… Politics seems to be a broken business. Politics needs to redefine its purpose. As I move forward in life, yes, am I gonna consider leadership roles where i can be most useful? I’d love to. I’m doing that, regardless. That’s where I sit right now.
YOUTUBE: Every living former POTUS and FLOTUS appear in this pro-vaccine ad — except the Trumps, who refused:
WEB.ARCHIVE.ORG: Mumford & Sons banjo player Winston Marshall tweeted gushing praise for right-winger Andy Ngo's book Unmasked: Inside Antifa's Radical Plan to Destroy Democracy, a book that downplays cop killings. The tweet was later deleted (but archived), and he is now on a hiatus from the group. The group had previously posed for a snap with far-right professor Jordan B. Peterson.
HUFF POST: This is not a joke or overstatement — on party lines, Oklahoma's legislature has signed off on allowing people to run over protesters.
NBC NEWS: With a sixth complaint against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo — this time an aide who says he groped her under her blouse in the governor's residence — nearly 60 Dems in the state have jointly called on the top Democrat to resign. (Which would hand the reins to Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul. The 2022 gubernatorial election is already up for grabs — possibly by a Trumper who would pardon that crime family.)
The details of this report are gut-wrenching ... I have never done anything like this.
POP BUZZ: Kelly Marie Tran, who plays Raya in Raya and the Last Dragon, says she played the princess as queer.
