Serena May Be Having a Rough Time, But She’s Still the GOAT. Trust.

On Tuesday (July 31), Serena Williams lost her opening match of the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic to Johanna Konta, 6-1, 6-0. It was the most lopsided match of her career during an event she had previously won three times.

“I think she played well in the second set and I think I wasn’t sharp at all in the first set,” Williams shared at a post-game conference. “I think she got confident and literally ran away with it.”

It’s okay, Serena. We know you’re getting warmed back up.

“This marked the fifth tournament for the 36-year-old Williams since giving birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia, last September,” the Chicago Tribune notes. “It’s her first tournament since her straight-set Wimbledon loss to Angelique Kerber.”

Lakeith Stanfield Is Working on a Romeo & Juliet Remake Set in 1980’s Brooklyn.

He’ll be playing the lead role in a movie adaptation of Ron Wimberly’s graphic novel Prince of Cats, to which Legendary just won an auction for feature rights.

“The graphic novel is described as ‘80s hip-hop retelling of Shakespeare’s timeless classic Romeo & Juliet,” Deadline reports, “only this time, we follow Tybalt’s perspective as he and his Capulet crew navigate a violent Brooklyn where underground sword dueling with the Montagues blossoms alongside a vibrant music scene.”

Let us know when them press screenings start rolling out!

Scott Storch Says Dr. Dre’s Detox Is Still Happening, But We Won’t Hold Our Breath.

How are we even still discussing this in 2018? Lol. During a recent interview on Power 106’s “The Cruz Show,” the beatmaker said he’s got faith.

“I think it’s going to happen, man,” he said. “Matter of fact, I know that it’s going to happen.”

No word on when it can be expected, of course, but Storch reassures that there’s more to come from Dre. “That’s for sure.”

Trump Apparently Wants America to Use IDs to Buy Groceries. Or He’s Terribly Misguided. Or Both. 🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️

At a recent “Make America Great Again” rally in Florida (why is he still having “rallies”!?), the president stated—as if it was general knowledge—that if you want to buy groceries, then you need an ID card.

“You know if you go out and you want to buy groceries you need a picture on a card. You need ID,” Trump said during the event during which he supported GOP congressman and gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis. “You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID and you need your picture. In this country, the only time you don’t need it in many cases is when you want to vote for a president, when you want to vote for a senator, when you want to vote for a governor or a congressman. It’s crazy. It’s crazy. But we’re turning it around.”

He probably hasn’t purchased his own groceries in years, but still… c’mon, man. Watch a clip of his ridiculous statement below:
