See why we're having instant coffee:

• Tonight at 9 p.m. President Barack Obama will address the nation regarding his thoughts and plans on Syria. The president is seeking the American people's support for a possible military strike. Congressional officials don't appear to be supporting the president after returning to session yesterday. It's unclear what Obama will do if Congress votes no on a military strike. However, during his press interviews yesterday, the commander-in-chief mentioned that Syria might surrender its chemical weapons—indicating a subtle act of diplomacy could be on the horizon. Despite the latest development, Obama says the U.S. needs to keep a "credible threat of military pressure" on Syria. [Associated Press]

• Yesterday, K. Michelle responded to Tamar Braxton's not-so-kind comments about her album numbers. K. Michelle tweeted, "I'm really just trying to stay positive and live my life.
