Twenty years ago, the Ice Cube comedy Friday hit theaters. And while fans can quote the script verbatim, a certain two-word phrase spoken in the film has surpassed every other line: "Bye, Felicia." Twenty years later, it's never been more popular, to the point that it gets used by people who have never seen Friday.

RuPaul's Drag Race winner Sharon Needles and her partner of four years, Alaska, have split.
Needles (real name Aaron Coady), who won season 4 of the show, and Alaska, who was a runner up the following season, announced their breakup "on good terms" in a tongue-in-cheek press release, and included their wish "to clarify their intentions to admirers who may question the reason behind this mutual decision not to continue their relationship."
"The survival of our partnership relies on simply changing the word 'boy' in boyfriend to 'best,'" Needles says. "And because of my severe vanity, I'd like to keep my social media as a place dedicated to my art, and not a place to talk about my personal life."

After a season filled with drama, fighting and so much shade, RuPaul's Drag Race crowned a winner Monday night in New York City.
Well-heeled contestants (seriously, these heels were amazing) stepped out to toast the three finalists – hilarious Alaska, glamorous Roxxxy Andrews and quirky Jinkx Monsoon – at the bash, which featured a live performance by season 4 winner Sharon Needles and N.Y.C. nightlife icon Amanda Lepore. But the big moment of the night came when RuPaul announced that crowd favorite Jinkx Monsoon (in her "Glinda the Good Witch" ensemble) was the winner. "It's Monsoon season!" she told the crowd after getting crowned.
She also told PEOPLE what being the Next Drag Superstar means after 10 years of performing in drag. "I want people to see that you don't have to be catty and mean to be a superstar," Jinkx said. "I want to be a role model and an advocate for social change."

On the upcoming season of RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race, the wigs will be higher, the makeup wilder and the outfits even further over the top.
The best queens from seasons past may be back and bringing their A-game, but that doesn't mean they won't throw a little shade.
In the first 10 minutes of the season premiere, which airs Oct. 22 (9 p.m. ET) on Logo, each of the girls makes her way into the workroom – and the reading begins. (Watch below.)
"Raven walked in from a cocktail party it looks like," Pandora Boxx says. "Thanks for trying, girl!"

When Karl Westerberg found out that Antoine Ashley, his boyfriend of six years, died Monday of heart failure, he was devastated. But it also made him appreciate their time together even more.
"I'm left cherishing his memories and carrying out his legacy," Westerberg, also known by his stage name Manila Luzon, told PEOPLE on Thursday. "I was lucky enough to have time with him."
Still, he says, losing the fellow RuPaul's Drag Race contestant is a struggle.
"I'm hanging in there, but it's hard because I have to deal with more than just grieving someone so close," he says. "I have to deal with telling everyone all the information. We've been together for such a long time, so it's surreal because it just happened. At least I have a lot of support from friends and family, so that's good."
When Westerberg first met Ashley – also known by his stage name Sahara Davenport – at a local bar in his neighborhood, he instantly knew this was someone he'd be connected to for a long time.
