Dear Gossips,

In 2005, filmmaker Ameesha Joshi was at a World Press Photo Exhibit when she came across pictures of Indian girls boxing on the beach. Ameesha is a first-generation Canadian born to Indian parents and she understood immediately the social pressures the boxers would face, on top of all the pressure to train and perform.  Read Full Intro

In case you missed it… this was the headline of the day yesterday, involving Julia Roberts and her “holes”, which are getting better with age. It’s a story made for Michael K and Dlisted because, well, only he could write an entire article about holes that namechecks Lohan, goop, and Paul Rudd while reminding us that it’s time for another viewing of Steel Magnolias. Full Story

Wenn, Backgrid

I’m not saying that like it’s a complaint. More like… sarcasm. Because it’s almost the end of the year and many of you spent several months this year worrying that Victoria and David Beckham wouldn’t make it to the end of the year. Full Story

Check out Joe Alwyn last night at the premiere of Mary Queen of Scots. Interesting pant length happening here. Why not show off those boots, right? I don’t hate it. But it’s definitely shorter than the usual, especially with the slight flare at the hem. Kinda like the mom jeans I’m obsessed with right now. Full Story

Mary, Queen of Scots is getting mixed reviews. Here’s why I’m seeing it: for the performances from the entire cast, led by Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie, but also because the case includes Gemma Chan. An Asian woman in a British historical period piece! Big ups to director Josie Rourke for no-big-dealing it too. Full Story

Monsters in the dark

The second trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters is here to rattle our skulls with Godzilla’s roar—I really love the new roar sound effect created for these new movies—and also strain our eyeballs with darkness. After the Comic-Con trailer, I specifically wished Full Story

That was the question dominating Twitter yesterday. It started with Jacquees – a singer I barely knew existed – declaring himself as the “King of R&B.” The declaration sparked a debate that went from heated to hilarious and back around again. This debate has all the grown-ass men who have ever had an R&B hit in their feelings. Full Story

First Man’s Oscar paradox

From its first trailer, First Man looked like a surefire Oscar front runner. Damien Chazelle, Ryan Gosling, period piece, Great Man biopic—it appeals to several Oscar fetishes. But the box office for First Man has been lackluster, stalling out just below its break-even point. Full Story

I mean, I thought the belly-cupping during the royal tour in Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand was extra. Turns out, for Meghan Markle, that was simply entry-level belly-cupping. Last night at the British Fashion Awards, Royal Meghan took it beyond extra to extreme. If you’ve been following this site from the beginning, you are probably familiar with how I feel about belly-cupping. Full Story
