Jerry Seinfeld is offering his opinion on Roseanne, saying that he didn't understand why they had to fire her if she was basically already committing career suicide.

Serena Williams Talks Badassery 

Serena Williams is on the cover of InStyle's very first Badass Women issue, and we learned some awesome things. She said she's never felt more badass than during the 2017 Australian Open, where she played two months pregnant in 100 degree heat. She also said that the key to being a badass is confidence and not caring what other people say -- but in a positive way, not a negative way. In a way that lets you stand up for yourself and for others. As for plans to have another baby, she said yes -- but they need to make a plan. She doesn't know that she wants to play again after baby number two. 

 

Ty Dolla Sign Tries to Get Seeing Eye Dog Off Flight

Ty Dolla $ign was flying in Canada the other day when there was a blind woman with a  seeing eye dog seated behind him. He's allergic to dogs, and even though the woman reportedly offered him an allergy pill, he turned it down because he had to perform. But he apparently went to the staff and tried to get the lady removed, which is insane. The staff politely basically told him to shove it, and that he should've let their medical desk know of his allergy in advance of the flight - just like the woman alerted them in advance of her dog. What a jerk. He ended up just staying in his seat.
