1. Just yesterday, we still weren鈥檛 sure whether Sookie would be back for the Gilmore Girls revival or not, with show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino saying nothing had been confirmed, but she would do whatever it would take to get Melissa on board. Now, via an announcement on Ellen, Melissa says 鈥 wait for it 鈥 she WILL in fact return to Stars Hollow. 鈥淭here was a whole thing and I was going to be out of the country,鈥 she said. 鈥淎nd literally about an hour and a half ago we figured out that I am gonna go back and do it! And I am so excited!鈥 DUH, US TOO! Truth be told, we thought maybe it was gonna be a pregnancy announcement or something, the way they鈥檝e been toying with us on this. We鈥檙e already drooling over the latest pics to be released, and we can鈥檛 wait till this thing airs. SOOKIE!

2. Even if you haven鈥檛 been closely tuned to American Idol over the past few seasons, knowing it鈥檚 over feels so sad. Like a bit of pop culture will be missing. And what will Ryan Seacrest do for work now? (Lol jk.) Of course, the queen of the show herself, Kelly Clarkson, made an appearance earlier in the season but was way too pregnant to be on hand for the finale (like, seriously, we wouldn鈥檛 be surprised if she gave birth WHILE this clip was airing). But she pre-taped a medley of her greatest hits, and it was a highlight in an already amazing finale. She closed the whole thing with her Idol classic 鈥淎 Moment Like This,鈥 and we were definitely 100 percent not crying, no way. Clarkson was at home watching, hilariously tweeting 鈥淲ho鈥檚 that sweaty, pregnant girl singing?? 鈥.oh snap that鈥檚 me hahaha!! #ohwell.鈥 And if you thought watching the finale of a series that鈥檚 been in your life for a long, long time felt weird for you, think of how it felt for her! 鈥淚 can鈥檛 believe I鈥檓 sitting here with my little girl about to watch the end! How crazy is life?!鈥 Indeed, Kelly. Godspeed, Idol!

3. Britney Spears loves Ryan Gosling memes, is all of us. Yesterday Brit posted a classic 鈥淗ey girl鈥 meme to her Insta, and if you weren鈥檛 already in love with the pop queen鈥檚 magical account, this should do it for you. Simply captioned with the cry-laughing emojis, we can鈥檛 figure out if this is supposed to be exercise inspiration for Britney, or if 鈥渒eep running鈥 is some way deeper life motivational thing. With Britney, neither would surprise us. (via @britneyspears)

4. There is now an agency for influencer dogs on Instagram. Animals being represented by agents is certainly nothing new 鈥 how else do you think Ross鈥 monkey Marcel from Friends gets work? 鈥 but an agency to help pets earn money off of their social media accounts is truly a sign of our times. The Dog Agency, founded by Loni Edwards, started because her own adorable dog Chloe started getting a huge Instagram following. 鈥淚鈥檝e been managing her for the past two and a half years and meeting the players in the space, from the other celebrity dogs, to the brands that are interested in working with them, to the media outlets who are interested in partnering with them to create content,鈥 she tells Broadly. 鈥淏ased on everything I had learned in the past two in a half years, I figured I could do a really good job of making sense of it and started the dog agency to do that.鈥 Instagram and cute dogs? Sounds like a dream job. (h/t Broadly, photo via @chloetheminifrenchie)

5. Let this huge group of capybaras at Japan鈥檚 Nagasaki Bio Park taking shelter from the rain inspire us all. TGIF!

6. Quote of the day: 鈥淚 can鈥檛 think of a gay woman that鈥檚 on the pop charts. And [the label] were like, 鈥榃ell why can鈥檛 that be you?'鈥 鈥 Tegan and Sara speak to Buzzfeed about their amazing career before the release of their new album.
