Yesterday, Lainey wrote, “Who’s a bigger dick? Liam or Noel Gallagher? That’s like asking ‘dogs or cats’?” The right answer is also the wrong answer.  Liam is peacocking in a new interview for Mr. Porter. Is there anything groundbreaking about what he says about fame, his relationship with his brother, politics in the UK, the music industry? F-ck no. Full Story

Christy Turlington’s nephew, James, is a model. You can see the family resemblance in his face, and she has an iconic face. You know who will be all over this? Anna Wintour. She loves OG supermodels and fame pedigree. He’ll be in a Vogue shoot by spring.           Full Story

Ariana Grande is suing Forever 21 for using her likeness in a campaign, and I don’t think it’s just about the specific image, but a deal that didn’t happen. She was in talks with Forever 21 but they never came to terms, which is why H&M was able to swoop in and work with her (there’s Ariana merch in store right now). Full Story

Chrissy Teigen is selecting submissions for her courtroom show, Chrissy’s Court.

The Jeremy Renner app is making the rounds again on social media, mostly because it’s completely bonkers. Is this the real Jeremy Renner sticking up for Casey Anthony (the f-ck?!?!)?

John Stamos is profiled in GQ, a wholesome TV heartthrob at 55. He was of course asked about Lori Loughlin. “Whatever happened,” he says, “I'm pretty sure that the punishment is not equal to the crime, if there was a crime.” Except she hasn’t been punished yet, and has the financial means to try to avoid punishment, “if there was a crime. Full Story

Last night Lainey posted a divisive question on Twitter: Is Diplo hot? I can’t answer that for her, or for you. The “is Diplo hot?” is a personal journey.           Full Story
