Plus, cat lovers, listen up. You can try cat food-inspired cuisine at Fancy Feast’s new pop-up Italian restaurant in New York City. It’s called Gatto Bianco, which means “white cat.” The human-friendly dishes feature options like “beef ragu recipe with tomatoes and pasta in a savory sauce.”
And, Beyoncé is changing the lyrics of one of her newest songs, after facing online backlash over what disability campaigners say is an ableist slur. The singer used the word “spaz” in her song Heated released last week. The word is often used conversationally to describe “freaking out” or “going crazy,” but it comes from the word “spastic,” which is considered demeaning to people with spastic cerebral palsy, who have a hard time controlling their muscles. A rep for Beyoncé says the word wasn’t used intentionally in a harmful way.
