The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On April 14
It finally feels like spring, and that just makes it being Friday *this* much sweeter. I won't waste a minute of your almost-the-weekend time — here's what Bustle's editors were talking about today, April 14:
Ben Affleck + Jennifer Garner
After breaking up and then putting their divorce on hold, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have officially filed for divorce. The couple, who were married for a decade and have three children together, will reportedly seek joint legal and physical custody of their children. So, while the news is sad, this split seems to be amicable.
OMG: According to Us Weekly, New Girl star Hannah Simone is reportedly married and pregnant (!!). Such. Happy. News.
Trump + North Korea
According to NBC News, the United States is considering a missile strike on North Korea as early as this weekend if President Kim Jong-Un follows through on a planned nuclear weapons test, and North Korea seems to be entertaining the possibility of an attack as well. "A preemptive nuclear strike is not something the U.S. has a monopoly on," North Korean government official Lee Yong Pil told NBC News in an interview. While officials do not believe that North Korea has the capability to reach the continental United States, American military bases in South Korea could be a target. The results of this weekend will only add to the tension between the U.S. and North Korea, but could have even bigger ramifications for the entire world.
Kendrick Lamar + Easter
Kendrick Lamar finally released his much-anticipated new album DAMN. today, but fans are already wondering if he's releasing a second album on April 16. Here's the idea: Lamar, who is Christian, released his first album on April 14 — you know, Good Friday (the day that Christians believe that Jesus Christ was crucified). With that in mind, a second companion album could potentially be coming on Easter Sunday (the day that Christians believe that Christ was resurrected) because DAMN. begins and ends with Lamar's death. So... maybe?!
Oh, and Lamar's producer straight-up tweeted this hint:

Chrissy Teigen + BECCA
Chrissy Teigen has teamed up with BECCA Cosmetics on a limited edition Glow Face Palette. The palette, which will include Teigen's favorite highlight shade from the brand (Rose Gold), will also feature three new cheek shades. Mark your calendars for early May, because these bad boys are going to go fast.

Star Wars + New Trailer
The Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer officially dropped today at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando and fans everywhere are freaking the eff out. And with good reason! The next installment of the Star Wars franchise looks so, so amazing. See for yourself:
Ugh, is it December yet?
Real or Rumor? This week, the internet got wind that Starbucks would be releasing a Unicorn Frappuccino. There are photos and a potential release date, but no official confirmation or comment from the most important party: Starbucks.
