1. Avoid Mike Tyson if he's wearing pink

Pink clothes make Mike Tyson feel powerful. "If I'm wearing pink, I'm not going to have an expression like you want to talk to me. 'Cause when I have on pink, I'm very serious. Pink makes me very masculine," Tyson, the face of the new Roberto Cavalli collection, told GQ. If you didn't get the hint already, he added: "I almost want to fight in those clothes. Those clothes make me want to fight a little." So maybe avoid the champion boxer if you see any pink, but don't worry, Tyson doesn't seem to be wearing the color while modeling the collection.


2. Kanye West partners with Sha'Carri Richardson — and maybe Nike

The most ambitious crossover event in history? Kanye West confirmed his tenth studio album, Donda, will be released on Friday in a Beats by Dre ad starring track star Sha'Carri Richardson, the would-be Olympian who lost her ticket to Tokyo over her positive marijuana test. West's support of Richardson isn't the only eye-catching part of the video, though; the Nike-sponsored athlete's prominent swooshes mark the third instance of Kanye aligning himself with the shoe brand he famously abandoned for Adidas. West also posted an outfit including Nike socks to Instagram, and is producing Lil Nas X's forthcoming single "Industry Baby," which plays off of the rapper's viral legal trouble with Nike. "Considering in early 2020 [West] told GQ he was open to the idea of a retro release of the Air Yeezy line, we wouldn't be surprised if something is in the works," GQ mused.

3. Tom Hanks customized his Airstream with a fireplace

Life's like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get. Unless you're bidding on Tom Hanks' Airstream. Hanks purchased the custom 1992 Model 34 Limited Excella in 1993, and it has served as his personal trailer on several movies since, including Sleepless in Seattle and Forrest Gump. The Airstream is up for auction on August 13, and Bonhams auction house estimates it will sell for $150,000 - $250,000. "I had spent too much time in regular trailers with ugly décor and horribly uncomfortable furniture, so I decided to buy a brand-new Airstream shell with an interior made to my own request," Hanks explained. "You haven't lived well until you survive a movie-stopping thunderstorm in an Airstream while on location in Carolina." That probably won't happen to you, but you could go on a cool camping trip!

4. Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson team up to roast Vin Diesel

It sounds like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson wants Vin Diesel to know his role and shut his mouth. In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Johnson said he "laughed hard" at recent comments from Diesel, who suggested a feud between the two stemmed from having to give Johnson "tough love" to improve his performance in the Fast & Furious movies. "Not Felliniesque, but I would do anything I'd have to do in order to get performances in anything I'm producing," Diesel had told Men's Health. Johnson's Jungle Cruise co-star Emily Blunt chimed in to mock Diesel's comments, sarcastically quipping, "Just thank God he was there. Thank God. He carried you through that." Johnson added, "Felliniesque." Can you smell what The Rock and Emily Blunt are cooking? A tag team roast of Vin Diesel.

5. Dolly Parton dressed as a Playboy bunny because 'it's always #HotGirlSummer for my husband'

Dolly Parton has never been subtle, and that's why we love her. But on Tuesday she dressed up as a Playboy bunny and shared with her fans that "it's always #HotGirlSummer for my husband, Carl" — which admittedly is probably more than anyone actually needed to know. In the video, the singer explained that Carl "still thinks I'm a hot chick after 57 years," and that she'd decided to recreate her 1978 Playboy magazine cover for him for his birthday. Holding up the comparison, Dolly joked, "I was kind of a little butterball [back then] … well, I'm string cheese now. But he'll probably think" — wink — "I'm cream cheese, I hope." Dolly!
