A week ago Katy Perry was making headlines telling Paper Magazine that: "I'm very pragmatic and logistical and I am less fantastical about things. I mean, I was married when I was 25. I'm 34. It was almost 10 years ago. I was like, 'One person for the rest of my life,' and I'm not so sure that that idea is for me. Full Story

Johnny Depp has been in Europe lately shooting a movie. A couple of weeks ago, he was seen boarding a private plane in Nice heading to Belgrade, surrounded by his usual entourage and there was also a young, attractive woman who was part of the group. In Belgrade, Johnny and the woman, still unidentified, were photographed kissing. Full Story

Today is Jennifer Aniston’s 50th birthday. Her party was on Saturday, at the Sunset Tower. And as you’ve probably heard, it was probably the most A list guest list of any party in a long time. It could have been an awards show. It may have been more well-attended that any award show this season when you consider some of the names. Full Story

Ariana Grande, just 7 months after the release of her previous album, Sweetener, dropped a new album, thank u, next last night. I thought Sweetener was fine. It didn’t make me want to hit repeat, I wasn’t listening to it on every car ride, so already for me, thank u, next is better. I went through a quick listen this morning and can’t wait to give it a full brew when I get home tonight. Full Story

I don’t have much to say about this. I just want to scream and squeal and jump up and down with you, like all of us all together, looking at this magazine cover. And in the corniest, cheesiest move ever, burst out into a singalong. You know the song. I just gave you the first line.  Ahead of Valentine’s Day, Entertainment Weekly is celebrating My Best Friend’s Wedding. Full Story

Yeah you are.  Lana Condor is on the cover of the March 2019 issue of Cosmopolitan.  I can’t remember the last time an Asian woman was on the cover of Cosmopolitan. At the same time, I know that over the course of the last six months or so, I’ve seen more Asians in media, featured in more English language magazines, than I have in the last 15 years. Full Story

People Magazine

That’s the headline on the cover of the new issue of PEOPLE Magazine featuring Meghan Markle. And it’s a direct rebuttal to the way the British tabloids have been reporting on her. As you know, the last few months have been a sh-tshow, with the UK papers going ham on the Cambridge-Sussex situation following Prince Charles’s birthday, publishing story after story about whether or not Meghan’s mean to Kate, suggesting that Meghan is “difficult” because she gets up early and sends emails – and it’s been this way since the very beginning, since news first broke that Meghan was dating Prince Harry, with that undercurrent of racism and classism that the British have perfected. Full Story
