It’s been, what?, a week since Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello sucked each other’s tongues on Instagram. And slightly longer than that since they’ve been papped while falling in love with other. Which, I know, is not easily paparazzi-able, and yet, Shawn and Camila have been showing it to us all summer. Full Story

Prince Andrew has repeatedly denied knowing about Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes or participating in them. He was friends with Jeffrey Epstein, the dead rapist pedophile, even after Epstein served a year in prison for solicitation of underage prostitution. He was seen with Epstein in late 2010 in New York and stayed with him at his NY mansion, enjoying the pleasures of foot rubs administered by Russian girls and whatever else they did when they hung out. Full Story

Shane Gillis was announced as a new cast member on Saturday Night Live less than a week ago. He hadn’t started yet and he’s been fired for racist and homophobic slurs made last year. I don’t have a thesis for this post, just a lot of thoughts. Will try to get through some of them here. Full Story

Two years ago, back in 2017, Brad Pitt covered GQ and it was something of a publicity turnaround after months of World War Brange drama following his split from Angelina Jolie. At the time he was promoting War Machine and he spoke about quitting drinking, his “self-inflicted” troubles, the “façade” that has at once protected him but also detached him from…what? It’s an analogy he’s used often and he describes it again in a new interview with GQ as the magazine’s October 2019 cover star Full Story

Over here in North America, people are still looking into the Jeffrey Epstein situation. Last week in The New Yorker, Ronan Farrow reported on how the M.I.T. Media Lab deliberately concealed how much money Epstein contributed to the research centre resulting in the resignation of the lab’s director, Joi Ito. Full Story

I woke up this morning and #Shawn was trending on Twitter. Same goes for #Camila. They’re still trending. My first thought was that, oh sh-t, they broke up? Sex tape? Neither. It’s about what Shawn Mendes posted on Instagram:          Full Story

Prince Andrew played golf on Monday at Royal Portrush while on his visit to Northern Ireland. The course hosted the Open Championship back in July so it would probably still be in top condition, as in quite difficult. I haven’t been able to find out what he shot. Full Story

There is no such thing as hyperbole when it comes to Rihanna, the business. Her makeup line set a new standard. She has her own luxury fashion house. And she took over NY Fashion Week with her Savage x Fenty show last night that changed the game in how lingerie is presented. It’s impossible, then, to exaggerate Rihanna’s influence, her force, her power. Full Story
