According to the owner of a luxury car rental company, Kansas City Chief receiver Rashee Rice admitted to being in a car crash in Dallas on Saturday that injured multiple people. A Corvette was racing a Lamborghini on Central Expressway when the crash occurred. The people involved left the scene, but someone got a good video of them as they walked away. Rashee owns that Corvette and rented the Lambo from The Classic Lifestyle for $1749/day. Rashee reportedly was in the Lambo and was the only one legally allowed to drive it, but a source told TMZ Sports that Rashee’s friend was behind the wheel. According to the rental company, Rashee texted them shortly after the wreck, promising to pay for their totaled Lambo. Dallas PD still wants to speak to Rashee and his racing buddies, and both the NFL and the Chiefs say they are looking into the situation.

A TikToker named Jahelis posted a video that’s gone a tad viral, claiming that SNL doesn’t hire attractive women because people refuse to accept that hot women can be funny. She specifically called out current cast member Heidi Gardner, saying she’s always forced to play the dumb blond character because even though Heidi isn’t really attractive — at least in Jahelis’ opinion! — she’s the best SNL has got! Heidi’s fellow SNL cast member Sarah Sherman responded on X, “Just found out I’m not hot. Please give me and my family space to grieve privately and uglily at this time.” We’ll see if the writers address it on this Saturday’s show, which will be hosted by the extremely attractive Kristen Wiig, who will officially become a member of the Five-Timers Club.

On Friday, Lizzo posted a long message on Instagram saying she was “getting tired of putting up with being dragged by everyone” when all she wants to do is “make music and make people happy and help the world be a little better” than how she found it. She ended her diatribe by saying, “I didn’t sign up for this s*** — I QUIT.” A lot of people — including me — took that to mean Lizzo was quitting music, but there were those who thought Lizzo was being a bit vague about what exactly she was quitting. So yesterday, Lizzo posted a video explaining, “I just need to clarify when I say, ‘I quit,’ I mean I quit giving any negative energy attention. What I’m not going to quit is the joy of my life, which is making music and connecting to people. And I know I’m not alone. In no way, shape, or form am I the only person experiencing that negative voice that’s louder than the positive. If I can just give one person the inspiration or motivation to stand up for themselves and say they quit letting negative people, negative comments win, then I’ve done even more than I could’ve hoped for. I’m going to keep moving forward and keep being me.”
