Into The Gloss’s Top Shelf, which features celebrities, socialites, and influencers explaining their beauty routine, is often eye-roll inducing because so many famous people love to claim that their skin is flawless from “drinking water” and using a $6 drug store face wash. This week the featured person is… David Beckham! Which makes sense, since he’s promoting his men’s skin care line, House 99, which he gets into, along with his new experiences with face masks. Full Story

David Beckham is a spokesperson for the Haig Club and hosted a party this week. Victoria’s sister attended, as did Brooklyn with his date. Socialite Mary Charteris, someone who The Sun once implied was a problem for the Beckhams, was there, as well as David Gardner (who is with Liv Tyler – I didn’t find any photos of her at the party). Full Story

How many comebacks does it take to actually come back? Lindsay Lohan’s team (cut to Dina Lohan swigging from a bottle of unoaked chardonnay) hasn’t exactly worked out the numbers yet. We have covered Lindsay’s fits and starts several times. Lindsay’s career burnout and downfall is in no way exceptional. Full Story

The Office doesn’t need to be rebooted, does it? It ended in 2013. Give it a minute. But I would definitely welcome a Christmas special. It would be a great homage to the UK series.          Full Story

Rami Malek continues to gain momentum for an Oscar nomination. RDJ is a very seasoned pro, and he’s making a very public show of support here. It always helps to have friends like RDJ (even if he doesn’t know how to use hashtags).           Full Story

The NYT column Modern Love is being made into anthology series for Amazon (with huge names like Sandra Bullock, Dev Patel and Tina Fey attached). And look! Here’s Anne Hathaway dancing in the street.

I love the Johnsons, but you know what’s always really bothered me about black-ish? Dre is horrible to Junior, to the point that I think that’s why he and Bow should have separated. I just don’t see her putting up with him talking to and treating their child in that way. Judging by social media, it seems other fans feel that way too. Full Story

Apparently, Adam Levine is having some reservations about performing in the Super Bowl halftime show. At this point, the band should be asking what benefit, if any, the halftime show will have on their work – they are already hit makers and radio favourites, that won’t change with this performance. Full Story

Amy Schumer is not exactly poking fun at Jessica Alba (who jokingly commented on this post), but she is making a point about the concept of The Honest Company, and all of the other mommy-targeted brands that use fear-based tactics to entice upper-class women into buying their products. Greenwashing (marketing a company as more sustainable and eco-friendly than it actually is) is a trend that celebrities really excel at, because women like Jessica and Gwyneth Paltrow want to tell you that they were the first ones to question what a diaper is made of, or what ingredients go in to diaper rash cream. Full Story
