Here's what everybody's talking about:
• Kim Kardashian posed for the latest cover of Rolling Stone magazine wearing a nautical-themed shirt and a captain's hat (above), leading us to wonder if she's some kind of boating enthusiast. If she is, it makes sense in a weird sort of way. We can't quite put our finger on it, but something about this photo tells us Kim is extremely buoyant.
• Unless you just purchased one from a gas station's vending machine, cheeseburgers are one of the happiest foods you can hope to consume on a warm Fourth of July weekend. That said, the folks at The Happiest Hour restaurant in NYC have cooked up maybe the happiest burger of them all. Watch the video below to see how it's made, then
• Despite announcing their intentions to divorce just days ago, a source for Us Weekly says Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are planning to continue living together in the same L.A. property. This sounds like an awful idea, but just remember that some of the best "I Love Lucy" episodes were based a very similar premise. All they need is to lay a strip of masking tape down the center of the house, and all their troubles will vanish!
• Universal Pictures has released the first full-length trailer for Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin's "Steve Jobs" biopic (below), which looks like it's going to focus on the controversial aspects of the tech icon's life. It also looks like it's going to try and convince us that Steve Jobs had Michael Fassbender's haircut all along, when clearly he didn't.
• George Clooney is reportedly entertaining an offer to sell his Lake Como villa for $100 million — about ten times what he paid for it back in 2002. We can't imagine he'll turn it down, but then again, you can't put a price on sentimental value. Think of all the ladies he bedded in that villa pre-Amal!
• This past Wednesday on Instagram, Michelle Obama announced the end of the White House's long-standing ban on photography (below). Now, guests can feel free to take as many pictures as they want of that one ficus by the West Wing, or guy wearing sunglasses by the stairwell, or that other ficus by the library. The possibilities are endless!

• Hasbro and Lionsgate Entertainment are reportedly working on a big-screen adaptation of the board game Monopoly, which will tell the story of "a boy from the game’s modest Baltic Avenue on a quest to make a fortune." However, they've yet to reveal whether this boy will eventually tire of his quest about an hour in, after his sister refuses to sell him her stupid railroad for the fifth freaking time.
• During a recent concert in Delaware, Carrie Underwood unexpectedly broke into a rendition of Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's "See You Again," a song from the "Fast and Furious" soundtrack that fans closely associate with the late Paul Walker. We doubt Underwood was picturing Paul Walker, though. If anybody, maybe she was picturing Bo Bice.
• On Wednesday, Rihanna debuted a seven-minute music video for her latest single "B**** Better Have My Money," in which she and her pals kidnap and torture a rich lady. It contains far too much nudity and violence to embed in this article, but then again, it's also got a cameo from Eric Roberts that really breaks the tension and suspense, so maybe it's OK after all? (Whatever. We're going to err on the side of caution. You can watch the NSFW video here.)
• And finally, despite reports she was planning to sue, TMZ has learned that Paris Hilton may have been in on her recent plane-crash prank the whole time, and was only acting terrified. We don't buy it, though; we've seen 2008's "The Hottie and the Nottie," and not even seven years of acting lessons could account for Paris' convincing performance on that plane.
