The Bustle Huddle: What Bustle's Editors Are Talking About On July 17
How's everyone doing this post-GoT Monday? As great as it is that the beloved HBO series is back (and what an hour of TV it was... more on that shortly), we all forgot how long those days between episodes really feel. Can next Sunday night get here soon, please?
But anyway, Game of Thrones wasn't the only thing people were talking about today. For more on the show and everything else that caught Bustle's editors' attention, read on:
Game Of Thrones + What You Missed
Unless you're living under a rock, you probably know that last night was the Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones. If you didn't tune in, the big moments included (spoiler alert!) Sansa and Jon arguing it out, Arya committing mass murder, and, oh yeah, an Ed Sheeran cameo. In other words, just your typical start to GoT. Also, did you catch this Azor Ahai clue in last night's ep? The possibly-White-Walker-defeating figure might be making an appearance soon...
Say What? Taylor Swift being carried in a suitcase is one amazing rumor, you guys.
R. Kelly + Those Allegations
In disturbing news, a new BuzzFeed report alleges that R&B legend R. Kelly is holding several women against their will in a "cult"-like situation. Allegedly, Kelly controls many aspects of these women's lives, including when they leave their rooms or make contact with their families. When contacted by BuzzFeed, Kelly's lawyer defended the star, but Twitter, naturally, is up in arms over the terrifying allegations.
Baby News: In much happier celebrity news, Mindy Kaling is pregnant with her first child! Congrats to everyone's favorite Office alum.
A Body Project + Disability
In the latest installment of Bustle's A Body Project, 19-year-old Scarlett Bacchus-O'Callaghan discusses what it's like for her to live with Cerebral Palsy Spastic Diplegia, a condition that can make the arms and legs contracted, and why she feels there needs to be better disability representation in the media. "I want us to be shown as human, rather than cute and desexualized and childlike and inspiration-porn objects of pity," she says. Amen.
Shopping Break: This Marvel-themed makeup collection is the beauty line superhero fans need in their lives right this second.
Mac And Cheese + Your Safety
A new study reports that some powdered mac and cheese might contain a potentially dangerous chemical called phthalates. But before you start freaking out, know that Kraft says they don't add phthalates to their products, and besides, more research is needed to determine just how harmful these chemicals actually are. Still, stay alert.
LOL: Ann Coulter vs. Delta is the hilarious fight Twitter is loving so, so much.
