Yes, that Popeye’s.
This week on Open Tabs—an assortment of links we have on, well, our open tabs—we’re giving you a peek into our own internet habits and the stories and themes we can’t seem to stop talking about, like the British officially leaving the EU, what to know about the coronavirus, *another* release from Fenty Beauty, and much, much more.
1. Popeye’s Releases an Ivy Park–Inspired Clothing Line (via The Cut)
If you didn’t get your hands on Beyoncé’s latest Ivy Park collection with adidas earlier this month, here’s your second chance–sort of. Popeye’s, the Louisiana fast food chain, has made headlines again–and this time not for it’s sold-out spicy chicken sandwich, but rather its new clothing line that seriously resembles Beyoncé’s Ivy Park collection. Now anyone can buy the company’s uniform, which is decked out in the same burgundy-and-orange colorway as the Ivy Park collection. Hopefully this won’t sell out as fast, but we’d hustle to snag a piece while you still can.

5. The Latest in Online Dating: “Whelming” (via Cosmopolitan)
Whether you like to admit it or not, we’ve all had our fair share of online dating nightmares.
