1. Jussie Smollett has been sentenced to probation and 150 days in jail for charges related to a hate crime he was convicted of staging. The sentencing hearing was long – both in time and drama. The six-hour hearing included a victim impact statement from the City of Chicago and hours of testimony from character witnesses. Aside from jail and probation, Smollett was fined $25-thousand and ordered to pay more than $120-thousand in restitution to the City of Chicago. In a dramatic moment, Smollett not only declared his innocence, but that he "is not suicidal"

2. Megan the Stallion and Dua Lipa teased their first collab with some glammed up snapshots before the "Levitating" singer posted a snippet of Meg's rhyme alongside a collage of their messages about teaming up. Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa just dropped their first collaboration, “Sweetest Pie.”

3. A new AAA survey finds just weeks ago, when gas prices were at $3.53 a gallon, two-thirds of Americans thought that was way too high. 59% of Americans insisted that if gas prices went over $4, which they have, they would change their lifestyle or driving habits. Changes include driving less, possible carpooling, bundling trips and errands, reducing shopping and dining out. 52% of Americans are planning a summer trip, with 42% saying that they won’t change those plans no matter what the price of gas is.
