TRAVEL BAN UPDATE: NO GRANNIES

Trump’s travel ban got passed, sort of. The edited version of the 90-day ban limits visitors from six Muslim countries and doesn't allow refugees into the United States. This does not include those with valid visas and bona fide relationships with someone in the United States. As explained by the ban, bona fide relationships do not include grandparents, aunts, uncles, nephews, and nieces. Fiances, in-laws, and step-relatives are included. Hawaii is already asking for a clarification on the ban, saying the terms describing close family are too narrow. The ban is effective immediately June 29. The Supreme Court will make a final decision on the ban in October during its final session.

JAY-Z’S RESPONSE TO LEMONADE

About one year later, Jay-Z dropped 4:44, an album that seems to go with Beyonce’s visual album Lemonade. In the title track, he addresses his infidelity, apologizes to his wife and mentions his three children. He also refers to the infamous Becky with the good hair. Oh, the elevator fight between him and Solange after the 2014 Met Gala? He apparently “egged Solange on” by almost going Eric Benet, who cheated on Halle Berry in 2003. Kanye gets a shout-out too. Kanye said Jay-Z wasn’t there at a concert but Jay-Z recalls the 20 million he gave him. The album is available to Tidal and Sprint customers.

NIKE CONCEDES TO AMAZONS

Nike has long refused to sell its products on the e-commerce giant. But since Nike, Chanel, North Face, and other major brands are seeing a rise in third-party sales explode on e-commerce sites, Nike is reconsidering. To combat third-party sales, a limited selection of products will be sold on Amazon but Amazon has to be stricter in counterfeits and unsanctioned sales. Starting July 13, certain Nike items will no longer be sold by third party sellers on Amazon.

GRETA OUT AT MSNBC

After just six months at MSNBC, Greta Van Susteren is leaving the cable news network. After taking a four-month absence from broadcast, the 14-year Fox News veteran became For the Record’s anchor. Van Susteren failed to gain moment on the 6 p.m. time slot. The network’s chief legal correspondent Ari Melber will permanently replace her. Another Fox News veteran, Megyn Kelly, is slated to start a morning show set to debut in September.
