Fans Throw Chicken Nuggets at Harry Styles
Harry Styles is currently in the middle of a 15-night residency at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The singer, who has been known to interact with fans during his concert, usually gets the typical gifts tossed onstage — flowers, flags, a hat. But the other day, a fan decided it was a good idea to toss some chicken nuggets onstage — possibly in case Harry wanted a snack? There were two problems with the nugget toss, though. Harry explains to the fan that he doesn’t eat chicken and even if he did, the nuggets were cold and old.

Ketchup or Gloss
At some point, everyone has gotten some ketchup on their lips. This usually happens during a round of eating a particularly good burger or fries. But how many people have intentionally used the condiment as lip gloss? Brooklyn-based Mschf is offering a collaboration with Rhianna’s Fenty makeup collection that asks the question: Makeup or Ketchup? For $25, you’ll get a boxed set of six packets containing either Fenty lip gloss or ketchup. So, depending on what packet you choose, you’ll be able to dress up your lips or your sandwich. Feeling lucky? Order yours at ketchupormakeup.com.
Bring on the PSL
For those of us obsessed with all things pumpkin (in Miami we would never know there is autumn without Starbucks’ pumpkin spice latte showing up in its stores), the PSL has returned. But in the battle to be the most pumpkin spice obsessed who wins? Bid-on-Equipment just released a survey of the most PSL-obsessed cities and states in the country. Washington state was listed as the number-one-most pumpkin obsessed in the union (California, Colorado, Oregon, and Illinois followed close behind to make the top five PSL-loving states). Minneapolis was listed as the top city for PSL lovers, with Seattle, Miami, Atlanta, and Las Vegas making up the top five.
