“We share the same values, and what I love about Minnie is that she personifies happiness, self-expression, authenticity…plus she has such great style,” says Stella in a press video shared with CNN.

Alongside the new costume design, a part of the 30th-anniversary celebration for Disneyland Paris, Stella McCartney designed a special Minnie Mouse t-shirt to celebrate International Women’s Rights Day. The shirt will be sold online and in Stella stores starting March 8.

While some people (and news outlets) are irrationally freaking out about the announcement, others––including Stephen Colbert––are using it as meme fuel:

An eye-opening look at a ‘goth’ Nicolas Cage 

In an interview with the L.A. Times, Nicolas Cage reveals that he has a pet crow named Hoogan.

The crow resides with Nicolas and his family in their Las Vegas geodesic dome home.

“Crows are very intelligent,” says Nicolas to the L.A. Times. “And I like their appearance, the Edgar Allan Poe aspect. I like the goth element. I am a goth.”

Hollywood celebrities defend Taylor Swift

Damon Albarn, frontman for the Gorillaz, mentioned that Taylor Swift doesn’t write her own songs in an interview with the L.A. Times

Taylor Swift, who has written all of her own songs, tweeted her response:

Hollywood came to her defense. 

“She may have written some songs here and there with somebody. But I guarantee she did her part on it,” Dolly Parton said in an interview with Bustle

Jack Antonoff sent out a tweet too, saying “i’ve never met damon albarn and he’s never been to my studio but apparently he knows more than the rest of us about all those songs taylor writes and brings in.”

Billboard published a list of all 54 songs Taylor released without any co-writers, although she has played a part in every song on every album..

Damon ended up apologizing by replying to Taylor’s tweet, but most of us are left confused as to how his responses were turned into “clickbait.”

Let’s remember, folks: if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!
