President Obama Turns The National Woman’s Party HQ Into A National Monument

The Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument, the oldest standing Capitol Hill mansion where suffragette Alice Paul wrote the Equal Rights Amendment, is now a national monument.

The change came on the same day as Equal Pay Day, the shitty non-holiday that comes every April 12, a date that symbolizes how far a woman must work in one year to earn what a man earned in the previous year.

I'm all here for monuments and discounts - but y'know what would be even better? Equal pay.

Kyla Thought Her Sample On Drake's "One Dance" Was An April Fools Joke

Before appearing on Drake's "One Dance" featuring Wizkid, UK singer Kyla had already retired from the industry since her 2008 song "Do You Mind". So when she got the request that Drizzy wanted to sample the tune, she initially assumed the whole thing was an elaborate April Fools' joke.

"I got [messages] from all the big companies. They were like, 'you need to get in contact, someone wants to sample your tune." she told

BBC's Trevor Nelson

I was like, 'yeah, I'll get to them.' You know how it goes, sometimes we've had things come in and they fall through at the last minute."

Luckily, she got around to returning the call. "When we phoned, the company said, 'A huge international star wants to sample your tune, and they wanna have a meeting with you.' I was like, 'Yeah ok, who?' And when they said Drake, I was like, 'Yeah right!'"
"We signed papers, and I still didn't believe it," she continued. "I had a feeling someone was gonna say to me 'April Fools."

Kyla is now planning on a comeback to the scene. A Drake cosign is a pretty solid reason to get out of retirement. (Via: NME)
