In entertainment: BB-8 bounced and bopped its spherical bum through the sand in the second Star Warstrailer. Hollywood glamorati hobnobbed at the 23rd (yeah) annual MTV Movie Awards. Some of them won a bucket. AndThe Royals is E!’s first scripted show, not counting their other shows.
In the news: Hillary Clinton has been driving around Iowa in a van solving mysteries.
In history:A century has passed since the Armenian genocide began.
At school: The theme for this year’s promposals is signs.
In Homestuck: Lord English’s true nature was revealed in the proximity of some horses. True fact. Look it up.
