Issa Rae takes a dig at Kanye West at CFDA Awards
"Mental condition" or not, Kanye West is far from the hook when it comes to his recent declaration that slavery in America "sounds like a choice" on the part of those who were enslaved. At the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards on Monday, June 4, the event's host, Issa Rae — the first person of color to host the event — took a dig at the rapper. "I'm about as fashionable as Kanye is black — only when it's convenient," she quipped, adding, "That joke was my choice, just like slavery." D'oh. Vulture points out Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian West, likely heard the dig, as she was on hand to accept the Influencer Award. She doesn't appear to have taken too much umbrage at Issa's comment, judging from a quick peek at her social media. On the other hand, Kim's recent get-together with Donald Trump raised some eyebrows despite the fact that Kim's heart was in the right place when she asked for the meeting. Maybe she's picking her battles …

According to the New York Post, Oprah has donated $21 million to the museum over the years, making her its largest benefactor. Funds for the exhibit, however, were obtained separately by the museum.
Why Julianna Margulies doesn't give her pal, George Clooney, parenting advice
Over the course of the five "ER" seasons, costars George Clooney Julianna Margulies became close friends. They're still pals today, and while Julianna has been a parent for much longer than George, she's not in the business of giving him advice when it comes to raising the twins he shares with Amal Clooney. Speaking to Amy Robach on "Good Morning America" this week, Julianna explained (via Us Weekly): "Oh, you know, he doesn't need advice from me, he's married to Amal. She's a human rights lawyer!" But the two do chat about George's experiences with Ella and Alexander, who are about to turn 1. Recounting her "favorite" email conversation with the actor, Julianna recalled asking him a general question about how parenting was going. "I just can't believe there's so much poop," George replied. At that point, Julianna gave him fair warning. "I said, 'Oh brace yourself, my friend,'" she told him, "'they haven't even started eating solids yet!'"

Ashton Kutcher is losing his hair
Baseball hats to the rescue! When Ashton Kutcher stopped by "Conan" on Monday, June 4, to talk about his new series, "The Ranch," Conan O'Brien dropped a casual compliment, telling the actor, "you always look good … you've got good hair." Ashton admitted that he won't have good hair for long. "I'm going a little bit," he said (via E! News). "I'm losing it." He went on to explain he noticed his hair was thinning around the age of 25. A doctor put him on a hair loss medication called Avodart, which gets rid of the testosterone-making byproduct that causes hair loss in men. When he and his wife, Mila Kunis, opted to have children, he started worrying about the side effects of the medication. "I didn't know: Is it safe to take? So, I stopped taking the stuff about three years ago and now I'm experiencing the hair loss," Ashton explained. "It's starting to go. I'm a baseball cap guy, so I think I'm OK. I've established myself as a baseball cap wearing individual. When it does go, you're not going to know that it's gone, because I'm just going to have a ball cap on." He also noted he's not a fan of toupees. "I'll just let it go," he said. "I'll [be a] character actor or something."
