The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On July 14
Happy Friday, guys! We've made it to the end of the week, and two days of relaxing are in sight. Whether you're planning to hang at the beach with friends or spend Saturday and Sunday curled up indoors, I'm sure you're with me that this weekend could not have come soon enough.
Because what a news-filled week it was! Thankfully, the big story of today was about Beyoncé, not politics, but still — we live in crazy, breaking news-filled times. For more on Bey and everything else that got Bustle's editors talking today, read on:
Beyoncé + The Twins
If you somehow aren't aware, Beyoncé released the first photo of the twins this morning, and it is everything. Babies Sir and Rumi are totally adorable, and their famous mom looks fierce AF in her colorful robe. The only thing better than the photo itself might be all the memes about it, because the Beyhive has one seriously funny sense of humor.
Pro Tip: Here's where to get that gorgeous robe Beyoncé's wearing in the photo, so you can be one step closer to being just as cool (or at least, almost as cool) as the superstar.
Jersey Shore + A Big Reunion
That Jersey Shore reunion we've all been waiting for (yes, you too — admit it) is finally happening, in the form of an E! docuseries. The cast's reunion will be the pilot episode for a show called Reunion Road Trip, which will bring the gang together and update audiences on their lives since the mid-'00s.
