    1. As we all know by now, reboot hype is still alive and well. And if the anticipation surrounding the return of shows Like Gossip Girl and Sex in the City tells us anything, it’s that we can’t get enough of re-living our favorite TV shows.

    But can our favorite shows from the 90s and 2000s really work in an entirely new cultural landscape? To tell us about what the latest reboots need to do in order to be successful, we talked with culture writer Kylie Cheung.


    2. David Archuleta has come out as part of the LGBTQ community.

    3. Kevin Hart is canceling cancel culture.
