I spent the day after the Grammys still in full-blown swoon over their performance and, in particular, Taehyung’s (aka V) hair  Read Full Intro

Last week the Daily Mail broke the exclusive that Meghan Markle’s first interview after Sussexit would be with Ellen DeGeneres. Meghan and Prince Harry are the biggest gets right now, by far. Everyone wants to talk to them and obviously most people were thinking that they’d choose an equally big name – Oprah or Gayle King and, yes, Ellen, especially since the Sussexes have spent time with her, most recently last summer when she and Portia visited with them in England. Full Story

The Oscar Nominees Luncheon took place yesterday. This is when they gather every year for the class photo, ahead of the big night, and now they can see the finish line after months of campaigning – except, of course, for Brad Pitt who hasn’t been campaigning AT ALL.

Dear Gossips,

The headline in Los Angeles yesterday was supposed to be the Grammys which were taking place after a week of internal controversy – and all of this was happening at Staples Centre, known on most nights for where the Lakers play.  Read Full Intro

Even though I have wondered at several (low) points of my life the last few months whether or not, um, Diplo – would I?, I still think there was too much Diplo last night during Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” performance. There should have been less Diplo and more BTS. Specifically more Taehyung. Full Story

Hi Duana, I’m desperate for your help. Having our fourth boy in a couple of weeks (that was our last chance of having a daughter ;)) and am stumped for a name! I’ve set my mind on a unique, original name to make him extra special as the fourth boy but this has generated weird, out there names that I’m afraid we’ll regret. Full Story

While everyone over at Buckingham Palace is hoping that the Jeffrey Epstein mess will go away, over in the United States, even though they bungled it for a decade (so let’s not give them too much credit), they’re still proceeding with an investigation, and today, there was a news conference held outside of Epstein’s New York mansion, with authorities directly commenting on Prince Andrew’s involvement – or lack thereof Full Story

It will be the latest of Disney’s photo-real, pseudo-live action animated movies, done in the style of The Jungle Book and The Lion King. Full Story

Obviously social media has not been a pleasant place over the last couple of days, so I’m just here to try to pull out the best nonsense, something for us to collectively giggle (or eyeroll) about. Here’s a cat getting a makeover.           Full Story
