Lindsay Lohan endorses mixing milk and Pepsi

Stop trying to make "Pilk" happen … it's not going to happen. Lindsay Lohan has teamed up with Pepsi for an ad campaign encouraging fans to drink the soda with milk mixed in, a concoction they're dubbing "Pilk" — a version of what's known as "dirty soda," which has become big on TikTok. In a video shared on Instagram, Lohan, dressed in a Mean Girls-esque Santa outfit, pours a can of Pepsi into a glass, says "nice," then adds milk and declares, "Ooh, naughty!" For those "learning about Pilk for the first time," Lohan said in a statement, "I won't lie to you when I say I was a bit skeptical when I first heard of this pairing." But she claimed she was "amazed at how delicious it was" and is "very excited for the rest of the world to try it." Well, the Lohanassaince was fun while it lasted.

Zendaya's mom appears to address Tom Holland engagement claims

Mother knows best, and she says … calm down, everyone. On her Instagram, Zendaya's mom appears to have shot down rumors that her daughter is engaged to Tom Holland. The claim gained significant traction this week after the Twitter account Pop Hive tweeted, "Tom Holland and Zendaya are reportedly engaged!" — without linking to a source or providing any evidence at all. But this is Twitter we're talking about, so the post racked up a whopping 551,000 likes and 47,000 retweets, despite no indication it's true. Without specifically addressing the rumor, Zendaya's mom Claire Stoermer on her Instagram Story posted the definition of "clickbait," which "typically refers to the practice of writing sensationalized or misleading headlines in order to attract clicks on a piece of content." Between Zendaya and Taylor Swift, the race to set a record for most baseless engagement rumors is officially on.

David Harbour proudly announces Madonna 'thinks I'm sexy'

Hey Stranger Things fans: Madonna has been thirsting over David Harbour since before many of you were born. Chatting with Jimmy Kimmel, Harbour reminisced about the "harrowing, exciting" experience of starring in a (notoriously bad) movie directed by Madonna, 2011's W.E. The actor explained he received a mysterious call about a "top secret" read through that he had to blindly show up for without any information about the movie. All he was told was that the unnamed director "thought you were sexy" in Revolutionary Road, in which he had a sex scene. "All weekend, I literally was thinking about Ridley Scott and Martin Scorsese," Harbour said, only to show up and find out the director was Madonna. While surprised, Harbour joked, "The first thing that flooded over me was, 'Wow, Madonna thinks I'm sexy.' I was really excited about that." Don't worry, David: We're sure Martin Scorsese finds you sexy, too.

Sadie Sink never watched a Brendan Fraser movie until working with him

You've never seen Gone with the Wind? No big deal. But wait, you've never seen Bedazzled? Our jaws are on the floor. At the New York City premiere of The Whale, Sadie Sink admitted that before playing Brendan Fraser's daughter in the film, she hadn't watched a single movie of his. "To be honest, I hadn't seen any of his films," she told Variety, meaning she spent much of her life deprived of the joys of The Mummy, George of the Jungle, and especially Blast from the Past. To be fair, though, the 20-year-old wasn't even born when the original Mummy came out. "I didn't grow up with his films," Sink said. She also noted that now, she's "seen all of them" — so we're expecting Max to defeat Vecna in Stranger Things' final season by remembering her favorite scene from Furry Vengeance

Kanye West straight up says, 'I like Hitler'

At least for a day, Alex Jones was officially not the most unhinged person on his own website. The rapper formerly known as Kanye West appeared Thursday for a stunning interview on InfoWars, during which he just openly praised Adolf Hitler and defended Nazis. "I like Hitler," he declared. Jones initially attempted to defend Ye for his string of antisemitic comments by saying, "You're not Hitler. You're not a Nazi. You don't deserve to be called that and demonized." But Ye sure didn't make this argument easy by responding, "I see good things about Hitler also." Later in the show, Ye said, "I love Jewish people, but I also love Nazis," leading Jones to respond, "Well, I have to disagree with that." Yeah, when the "Sandy Hook was a hoax" guy thinks you've gone too far, it might be time to rethink some things.
