1. Blake Lively made her first official public appearance since having baby #2 a few weeks ago, appearing last night at L鈥橭r茅al Paris鈥檚 Women of Worth celebration in a simple and stunning all-dark errthing outfit. While on the red carpet, ELLE asked what advice she鈥檇 give to her girls, or to any other young woman feeling left behind after the election. 鈥淵ou know, just to use your voice. Don鈥檛 let anybody silence you, ever, and it鈥檚 about spreading love, you know?鈥 She continued, 鈥淵ou just have to set an example, you know? It鈥檚 so important. In times like this you can either curl up and be really depressed about the state of communities that are underserved, or you can set that example for your children.鈥 (Photo via Michael Loccisano/Getty)

2. Kanye West got booed at his own concert for saying he would have voted for Trump. After arriving late to his San Jose date on his Saint Pablo tour last night, Kanye proceeded to unleash a whack of political opinions on the audience who were not there for it. After saying that he didn鈥檛 vote in the election but if he did, he would have voted for Trump, he also went on to say that America should stop focusing on racism, telling the crowd 鈥淪pecifically to black people, stop focusing on racism鈥 we are in a racist country. Period鈥 not one or the other candidate was going to instantly change that.鈥 Kanye鈥檚 an artist to whom fans usually hang onto every word, but there was a lot of loud booing in the room last night.
