TwitterFacebook

Jadakiss is a man ahead of the times, and his go-to pizza order proves it.

For those who aren’t up-to-date with the latest pizza news, it was recently announced that Villa Italian Kitchen (the chain known for that gender reveal lasagna) will begin serving “Just the Crusts,” aka a single slice pizza box filled with just crust, because I guess it’s some people’s favorite part of the pie.

New Google Area 120 project Shoelace aims to connect people around shared interests

A new project from Google’s in-house incubator, Area 120, aims to help people find things to do and others who share your same interests.

It’s Sunday, July 14, and Donald Trump is saying racist stuff on Twitter.
