Gwyneth Paltrow is hitting the open water: Goop has teamed up with a cruise line for a “high-touch” experience from August 26-September 6 (it starts in Barcelona and will stop at ports in the Mediterranean). She gave the exclusive to USA Today – they are calling it goop at Sea (their styling, not mine) and there’s a one-day In Goop Health conference Full Story

Justin Bieber has revealed he has struggled with Lyme disease and chronic mono. Last year, he was photographed crying in public and really going through it (I thought it was wedding related stress, but it was something more serious). TMZ, which has a longstanding relationship with Team JB, had the scoop and Justin said we will see more on this in his documentary. Full Story

Happy New Year! I’m back on my bullsh-t, as promised. Let’s get right into it: Ricky Gervais is all over Twitter, keeping up with the “I don’t care!” schtick he had going at the Golden Globes. Because nothing says “I don’t care” like reading all your press, searching your name on social media, liking praise, responding to criticism and posting a tweet to Instagram. Full Story

As we know, the Beygency runs more secretively than most government spy operations. (We still haven’t seen Beyoncé’s Halloween costume.) Tiffany Haddish is the only person in recent memory who has perhaps gone against their wishes when she told the anecdote about someone biting Beyoncé’s face at a party. Full Story

Hilary Duff married songwriter Matthew Koma over the weekend in a small backyard wedding. Her Jenny Packham dress is fantastic, and Vogue had the heads up on that because they filmed a video about how good it is. As she explains, it’s clean with modern details, and she centers her look around that: her hair (which she recently cut) is left down (not the typical formal updo) and her headpiece is a simple headband. Full Story

Jia Tolentino’s The Age of the Instagram Face is only a few weeks old, but it’s already a reference point for me. It’s about women (mostly) who reverse engineer their features to look like a filtered version of themselves, with a strong celebrity influence (think the Kardashians, Chrissy Teigen, Bella Hadid). Full Story

Turns out all the speculation about Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson (including mine) was off-base; Cara wished Ashley a Happy Birthday and got her a very special, exclusive, priceless present – not one Olsen, but two! The twin set! A personalized video courtesy of Mary-Kate and Ashley who have not even met Ashley. Full Story

Have you seen the wrapping paper hack making the rounds on social media? It involves angling the present. I don’t know if that is a hack or an act of desperation: I suck at wrapping presents, even though I want them to look like they are in the window of a department store. There’s a reality TV show about this called Wrap Battle. Full Story
