In case you missed it, this week R. Kelly was accused of holding a group of women captive in what has been described as a sex cult. For those of you that are familiar with Kelly’s sickening history, these allegations shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Although a lot of people have weighed in on the claims, Roxane had the perfect response. The bisexual author tweeted:

What else is there to say here? It goes without saying that Hollywood has a penchant for propping up, rewarding, and even celebrating sexual predators.

Gay went on to tweet:

Cara Delevingne Attends The Premiere Of Valerian

Well, I’m relieved to say Valerian  finally premiered because I can now stop talking about it.

At the Tuesday premiere, Delevingne showed up in a spectacular and futuristic gown by Iris van Herpen. I can’t do the dress justice, so I’ll include this perfect description from Teen Vogue writer Ella Ceron:

Rather than the mesh and tulle that are hallmarks of your average sheer gown, this dress featured wire that had been twisted and formed into a dress, with bends and swirls that just so happened to match Cara’s Marcel-waved hair. Links in the mesh revealed slivers of skin here and there, highlighting the dress’s 3D construction. A racerfront bodice complimented the floor-length skirt, and altogether looked like what an intergalactic soldier would wear into battle. She was also donning some stunning jewels by Repossi.”

Well, if anyone can pull off a dress made out of wires, it’s Cara.
