Dear Gossips,

Since last Monday I've been dealing with some kind of eye stye. It got worse then better and actually popped while I was on live TV last Tuesday and, after the initial alarm - blurry vision - I got really excited because I love gross sh-t and it was all I could talk about, like show and tell. Literally a stank eye. My friend Dylan even took a picture of it (you can see it here) because he loves gross sh-t too.

A mistake. Bad luck. Because it never completely went away and has worsened again overnight and now I can barely open it. Which means I can't blog.

Am compressing etc but I have to get it checked out. Hoping it'll pop itself again and this time I won't be so stupid and practically celebrate it and it'll finally f-ck off for good.

I'm sorry for the interruption to our gossip schedule. Because Rihanna was with Drake at his show in Miami last night. And check them out at the after-party. The way she's touching his face.


And here she is dancing during his performance:

While I can't write today, please enjoy new posts from Sarah, Kathleen, and Joanna. This was hubris, entirely my fault, and I hope to make it up to you tomorrow. 

Yours in gossip,

Playing a little catch up as we close out August, starting with Todd Phillips’ latest bro-nightmare movie, War Dogs. For a director known for comedies—namely The Hangover trilogy, but also Road Trip, Old School, and Due Date, among others—Phillips doesn’t seem to like directing comedies. Full Story

In an exclusive in-depth interview with Ebony released over the weekend, Parker addressed, as Ebony calls it, the “growing firestorm surrounding his 1999 rape allegation.” Nate Parker spoke with senior editor Britni Danielle for 25 minutes about consent, toxic masculinity and male privilege. Full Story

I feel like I should apologize for not getting to The Get Down sooner. But now that I’m here, I’m looking around what feels like a mostly empty room and wondering where everyone else is. Have you watched The Get Down? No? Why not? Maybe it doesn’t look like your bag—it’s a show co-created by Baz Luhrmann, he of the lurid cabaret colors and overly staged musical numbers. Full Story
