There are some whose fathers are still alive but not active in their lives, for whatever reason.
Others will spend the day celebrating with their dads.
I’m holding space for all of you, no matter what your circumstances may be.
And I’ve got some content to help you either mark the holiday or decompress from it — whichever you need.
Three things to watch
Get ready to laugh and cry.
Leave it to Hart to bring some funny to a heartbreaking plot — and Netflix has timed the project perfectly for Father’s Day.
“Fatherhood” starts streaming on Friday.
The former hit Nickelodeon teen sitcom is back nearly nine years after the series finale.
Miranda Cosgrove reprises her role as Carly Shay, who in the original series was a teenager starring in her own Web series.
The new “iCarly” debuts Thursday on Paramount+.
‘Simone vs Herself’
Facebook Watch is getting us into the Olympic spirit.
“A 19-time World Champion and four-time Olympic gold medalist, Simone has already reached the mountaintop,” according to the news release. “But as the series will reveal, there are peaks left to scale while balancing adversity — from adjusting to a postponed Olympics to conquering the challenges that come with success and the weight of enormous expectations.”
It debuted Tuesday.
Two things to listen to
Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way: The Tenth Anniversary” is out Friday, and it’s a good reminder of how many hits she has gifted us with.
The album drops Friday.
One thing to talk about
This week, we learned that people will complain if they feel like there is not enough diversity in a diverse project.
Such was the case with Lin-Manuel Miranda’s latest film, “In the Heights.”
“In trying to paint a mosaic of this community, we fell short. I’m truly sorry,” he wrote.
Which begs the question: When everyone seems focused on representation, is it even possible to fully represent everyone?
Something to sip on
Speaking of, model Gigi Hadid sounds like she is feeling a way about people not understanding her identity.
“In certain situations, I feel — or I’m made to feel — that I’m too white to stand up for part of my Arab heritage,” said Hadid, whose real estate magnate father, Mohamed Hadid, is of Palestinian descent. “You go through life trying to figure out where you fit in racially.”
Gigi Hadid told i-D she asks, “Is what I am, or what I have, enough to do what I feel is right?”
She continued, “But then, also, is that taking advantage of the privilege of having the whiteness within me, right? Am I allowed to speak for this side of me, or is that speaking on something that I don’t experience enough to know?”
Hadid added that she believes her daughter, Khai, “will grow up feeling out the way that she can or wants to be a bridge for her different ethnicities.
“But I think that it will be nice to be able to have those conversations, and see where she comes from (with) it, without us putting that onto her,” she said. “What comes from her is what I’m most excited about, and being able to add to that or answer her questions, you know?”
