Meteor Streaks Through Sky Above Puerto Rico in ‘Rare Event’: WATCH

Incredible new video shows a meteor streaking across the sky in Puerto Rico on Friday.

The Associated Press reports that the low-flying fireball unsettled some residents who are still reeling from the Jan. 7 earthquake that killed one person and caused an estimated $200 million in damage: The bright burning ball was caught by security cameras and people randomly taking pictures and video of other things. … The meteor was visible across Puerto Rico in broad daylight, said Eddie Irizarry, a Puerto Rico astronomy professor and vice president of the Caribbean Astronomy Society. He said he got reports from all corners of the island. “That makes it into quite a rare event,” he said in a phone interview.

Karlie Kloss finally address the elephant in the room about her marriage to Jared Kushner’s brother

Project Runway host Karlie Kloss stopped by Watch What Happens Live! last night where she finally opened up about her uncomfortable connection to the Trump family.

Quick backstory: Kloss is married to Joshua Kushner, who is the brother of Trump senior adviser Jared Kushner, who is married to Ivanka Trump, who, of course, is Donald Trump’s eldest daughter.

Earlier this month, a Project Runway contestant was sent home after making a dig in reference to Kloss’ marriage. When Judge Brandon Maxwell said of the designer Tyler Neasloney’s dress, “I cannot see Karlie wearing it anywhere, honestly,” Neasloney quipped, “Not even to dinner with the Kushners?”

The remark didn’t go over so well with, well, anyone. Neasloney later apologized but he was still sent home, presumably for his bad design. (But, honestly, who actually believes that?)

When Cohen asked Kloss, who has remained pretty tight-lipped about her association with the Trump family since the 2016 election, about Neasloney’s comment, she was completely forthright.

“I was honored to be one of the first memes of the decade,” she joked. “Honestly, the real tragedy of this whole thing is that no one is talking about how terrible that dress was. That’s why he went home. I would not wear that dress to any dinner.”

Riiiight.

As for her relationship with the Trumps, Kloss made a good point: “I’m sure I’m not the only person in this country who does not necessarily agree with their family on politics. I voted as a Democrat in 2016 and I plan to do the same in 2020.”

To which Martha Stewart, who was also a guest last night, replied, approvingly: “I’m glad that you announced that.”

Watch.

Eminem Recreates Las Vegas Massacre in Controversial Plea for Gun Control, ‘Darkness’: WATCH

Eminem’s surprise new album released early Friday, Music to Be Murdered By, is stirring plenty of controversy.

In a video for the single “Darkness,” Eminem raps from the point of view of the gunman — literally and figuratively — in the 2017 Las Vegas massacre, which left 58 concert-goers dead. (Warning: graphic content)

CNN reports: At the video’s end, Eminem looks on at a wall of TVs flashing familiar news clips from previous shootings, including those at the Capital Gazette newspaperbuilding in Maryland, Santa Fe High School in Texas and the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California, among others. “When will this end?” a card reads at the end of the clip. “When enough people care.” Eminem encourages viewers to register to vote at Vote.Gov to “help change gun laws in America.”

The Guardian reports that on another track from the album, “Unaccommodating,” Eminem compares himself to the Manchester Arena suicide bomber, who murdered 22 people in 2017: In the track, the star raps: “But I’m contemplating yelling ‘bombs away’ on the game / Like I’m outside of an Ariana Grande concert waiting.” Hours after its release, the musician faced a backlash on social media. The mother of 15-year-old Charlotte Hodgson, who died in the attack, called the track “disgusting” and “disrespectful”. Meanwhile, Figen Murray, whose 29-year-old son Martyn Hett died in the attack, called the song “pointless.”

The Atlantic‘s Spencer Kornhaber notes that Eminem is following in the footsteps of Madonna, who also recently released a graphic video calling for gun control. But in addition to potentially traumatizing survivors, Kornhaber says the rapper may end up doing more harm than good:

Experts on mass shootings say that in addition to enacting stronger gun laws, one of the best ways to prevent future tragedies is to deny fame to murderers. The copycat phenomenon is real, and when the media broadcasts the names and faces of criminals and obsesses over their backstories, would-be killers get the message that they could become more famous than any of the people whose life they take. If Eminem jolts his fans into taking action to support gun control, that effect will have to be weighed against this grim fact: One of today’s best-selling musicians has humanized the perpetrator of the deadliest mass killing in modern U.S. history.

Kornhaber notes that Eminem’s website features links to anti-gun-violence organizations, which we’ll repost here: the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violencethe Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and March for Our Lives.
