Jessica Simpson's Valentine's Day Message, Kanye West's $53 Million Debt, and Much, Much More

Here's what all the fuss is about:

• On Sunday, Jessica Simpson wished her followers a happy Valentine's Day by posting a sizzling snapshot in only a bikini and denim shorts (above). That said, we can hardly wait until May, which is when we expect Jessica to wish us a happy Mother's Day while wearing some kind of see-through blouse.

• "The Revenant" won the awards for Best Actor, Best Director and Best Film at Sunday evening's BAFTA Awards, which are basically the British equivalent of the Oscars. In fact, the only real difference between the BAFTAs and the Oscars is that they're willing to give Leonardo DiCaprio an award.

• During a Twitter rant on Monday morning, Kanye West revealed he's $53 million in debt and publicly begged Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to bail him out. Because in Kanye's mind, donating millions of dollars to his "art" is a much better investment than, say, opening a school in an impoverished area in Africa. No, really:

All you dudes in San Fran play rap music in your homes but never help the real artists…

you’d rather open up one school in Africa like you really helped the country…

• The Ryan Reynolds superhero flick "Deadpool" broke the record for the highest-grossing opening weekend of any R-rated film in the history of North America, pulling in a reported $135 million during its first three days in theaters. With that in mind, one wonders if Hollywood will try to replicate the film's success by only casting actors whose faces "look like an avocado had sex with an older avocado."

• Sports Illustrated has unveiled three different covers for its 2016 Swimsuit Issue: the first featuring MMA fighter Ronda Rousey; the second featuring newcomer Ashley Graham; and the last picturing swimsuit siren (below), a 20-year-old California native who made her debut in last year's issue, and who doesn't think much of the "Swimsuit" requirements of the "Swimsuit Issue." (Not the we're complaining.)

• Speaking of Clauson, we interviewed the blonde bombshell right after her first appearance in the Swimsuit Issue, where she revealed her grandmother's interesting reaction to seeing her bikini pics. Find out what happened in the clip below (or ), then go give your own grandmother a phone call. She's equally as adorable as Clauson's, and she'd love to hear from you.

• Emily Blunt has reportedly signed on to voice a principal character in Hasbro's animated "My Little Pony" film planned for 2017. So if anything should ever happen to her acting career, Blunt has ensured that she can always make make a fine living signing autographs at pervy BronyCon conventions for the rest of her life.

• Late last week, it was announced that Damon Wayans will be starring in a TV adaptation of the "Lethal Weapon" films, where he'll be playing the role of Murtaugh. The role of Riggs has yet to be cast, but we see no reason Adam Sandler shouldn't make himself available, if only so Wayans and Sandler can finally make the modern "Lethal Weapon" that they tried to make in 1996, when they called it "Bulletproof."
