Described by the publisher as an "ode to self-esteem and the love between a father and daughter," the forthcoming picture book was largely inspired by Everly, 7.

Asked what message he hopes the book will convey to dads, the actor, 40, told the outlet, "I want dads not to be afraid to go into their daughter's world and discover who they are." He explained, "When I became a single father, I had a lot of fear about connecting to Everly in every way that a little girl might want. I didn't wear nail polish or know how to braid hair. But now I do both." Added Channing, "I jumped with both feet into this magical world, and I was rewarded with a kind of love that I don't think I would have ever been able to have otherwise." "The One and Only Sparkella" hits shelves on May 4.

Kim Kardashian West shows off new Yeezys while celebrating her first Easter since splitting from Kanye West
Judging from the Kardashian-Jenner family's social media posts, Kanye West skipped the Easter celebration his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian West, and their kids enjoyed over the weekend in Palm Springs, Calif. But fans suspect a very Yeezy-forward "Happy Easter" post from Kim was her way of quietly showing the world he's still on her mind as the two navigate the end of their seven-year marriage. On Sunday, Kim shared photos of herself in yellow workout gear, paired with matching Yeezys that appear to be an unreleased version of Kanye's foam runner design — aka, the "Yeezy Crocs." Fans were quick to point out Kim's divorce hadn't stopped her from promoting her soon-to-be-ex's shoe line. (She also seemed to be shielding her left ring finger from the camera in the photos, though her wedding band and engagement ring haven't made appearances on social media in quite a while.) Kim, who reportedly cited "irreconcilable differences" in her divorce filing and has requested joint legal and physical custody of the former couple's four children, is said to be communicating with Kanye only via his security and the nannies who help with their kids.

Cher apologizes after being accused of white saviorism over George Floyd tweet
Cher is rethinking her perspective on George Floyd's death amid the ongoing trial of former police officer Derek Chauvin, the white man who kneeled on the Black rapper and security guard's neck last year for nine and a half minutes, killing him, during an arrest. On Friday night, Cher posted a tweet that read (per NBC News), "Was talking With Mom & She Said 'I Watched Trial Of Policeman Who Killed George Floyd,& Cried.' I Said 'Mom, I Know This Is Gonna Sound CRAZY,But.. I Kept Thinking …..Maybe If I'd Been There,…I Could've Helped😔." The tweet has since been deleted, but screenshots of comments on the post showed fans warned Cher she was on a slippery slope as a white woman announcing she might have been able to save a member of the Black community. "Cher I say this with respect: White savior complex. Stop," one person replied. "Cher, I love u, but it wasn't just some people who didn't understand," one user tweeted. "We as white women just need to be careful that we don't make ourselves the star of the story," another wrote. "I'm sure you didn't intend that, but it can come across that way." The next day, Cher seemed to have taken the comments to heart, but still apparently failed to see the issue with so-called "white saviorism." "Wrestled With This Twt, Because I Thought some ppl wouldn't understand, Or Believe an Entertainer Could have Honest emotions about a human Being,suffering & Dying,even if It's Only Shown On tv," she posted on Saturday. "You Don't Know What I've Done,Who I Am,Or What I Believe.I CAN,I HAVE,& I WILL..HELP." One person pointed out that since "it was thousands of people" — not just "some" — who took issue with her first posts, "… maybe you should try to see why it was problematic? Even if your 💚 was in the right place." The singer, 74, then started inching her way toward an apology. "I Just got off phone With Friend Karen.Told her what Happened,& Realized,You Can P— Ppl Off,& Hurt Them By Not Knowing Everything That's'NOT Appropriate'To Say," she wrote before adding, "I know Ppl Apologize When They're In a Jam,BUT🤚🏼TO GOD🙏🏼,IM TRULY SORRY If I Upset AnyOne In Blk Community. I Know My❤️."
