Back in the fall, the Sunday Times reported that Princes William and Harry were looking into separating their households, now that Harry is married and expecting a child and he and Meghan Markle will be moving away from Kensington Palace. All of which is understandable. These are two individuals with different responsibilities, now grown. Full Story

If there was an Oscar for Best Performance on Social Media – and there probably will be one day – the inaugural winner should be Will Smith. He is so f-cking good at this and…so repeatedly good at it. You remember his #InMyFeelings challenge. All the times he punks his kids. His willingness to be the fool. Full Story

Christmastime is when Mimi expends all of her energy – I imagine she spends most of January recovering in some kind of hyperbaric skinny chamber. That’s why her Valentine’s Day is so subdued. How do we even know this photo was specifically taken for Valentine’s Day? Lounging in a red dress while being stroked by a red rose is a regular Tuesday morning for her. Full Story

Bradley Cooper was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, likely pre-taped because he was out for dinner last night in LA with Irina Shayk for Valentine’s Day.
