This weeks pop culture winners and losers

Winners

Cardi B
The rapper will cozy up with Jimmy Fallon on Monday as the very first co-host of The Tonight Show. According to the network, Cardi B will be introducing guests as well as performing, making this the first time the late-night show as had two people playing host. We're expecting Cardi B to be a natural; she's appeared on The Tonight Show twice already. The Bodak Yellow singer also dropped her first album, Invasion of Privacy, this week and is appearing on Saturday Night Live.

Marc Jacobs
When it comes to fast-casual dining, Chipotle is obviously the most romantic, which is probably why designer Marc Jacobs decided to pop the question to candlemaker Char Defrancesco at the chain. The former Louis Vuitton creative director dropped to one knee after a flash mob took over the restaurant with a dance to Prince's Kiss. I hope they got free guac.

Jenna Fischer
In what seemed like a possible episode of The Office, Jenna Fischer walked out on the Jimmy Kimmel Live stage wearing jeans, stilettos and … a towel after an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction. The star of the new ABC show Splitting Up Together was in good spirits, and walked out holding the dress she was supposed to be wearing on a hanger. "I waited a little too long to get dressed, and then my zipper broke. And, I panicked," Fischer said. To which Kimmel replied, "You did the right thing."

Justin Timberlake
While performing in Detroit on Monday, Timberlake shut down his concert to help one fan announce some big news. The Man of the Woods singer saw Darcell Baxtresser holding a sign in the audience, asking him to share that she was pregnant.  "Baby Baxtresser arriving November 1, 2018," he told the crowd. "Tell Papa B I said congratulations too!" Bastresser shared the video on Facebook, writing that it was " the most amazing, magical, unforgettable moment I have ever had in my life!!!"

Losers

Conor McGregor
During a UFC 223 media event, Conor McGregor and his large entourage made their way backstage and reportedly attacked a bus full of fighters on their way back to their hotel, injuring at least one person. Total crazyness followed, with chairs and metal barricades being thrown at the windows, causing glass to shatter. UFC president Dana White called the attack the most "despicable moment in the history of the sport," which may mean an end to McGregor's UFC fighting days, at least for a while. Although some reported that the brawl came after UFC's decision to strip McGregor of his lightweight title, it's possible McGregor was more upset with headliner Khabib Nurmagomedov, who was filmed slapping McGregor's friend Artem Lobov earlier this week.

Blac Chyna
After Blac Chyna's stroller-swinging scuffle at a Six Flags on Easter Sunday, the reality star has been dropped as a brand ambassador for Momiie, the company that makes the car-shaped strollers. Apparently, using a stroller to attack someone isn't entirely on brand with the company. "[We] cannot excuse that sort of reaction and behavior particularly in a family resort around children," a spokesperson for the company told TMZ. On Sunday, footage quickly went viral of the mother of two trying to throw the stroller at someone. Chyna defended the outburst, saying she got protective after someone tried to touch her children. "I do not condone violence nor am I a violent person but shout out to all of the amazing mothers out there that will protect their children at all cost." The Kardashian clan wasn't as thrilled. Rob Kardashian, who shares a baby with Chyna, shared the clip on Instagram, writing "Just gonna leave this here."

Just gonna leave this here ����‍♂️
