Did you hear about the Instagram influencers who may have sold brand sponsorship to their “surprise” engagement? (Taylor Lorenz of The Atlantic wrote about it here, with receipts). I don’t know if there’s anything inherently “wrong” about faking something for profit on Instagram (isn’t that Instagram’s whole ethos – faking it?) but what’s interesting is the woman works for Goop as a director of brand partnerships. Now her name is blowing up (even WWD covered it) and I wonder how GP will react – will she dismiss this as the usual Internet “haters?” Will this embarrass the company because it’s a tad corny? Or will she applaud her employee’s ability to sell “brand partnerships” around a momentous occasion? After all, it’s not like GP hasn’t done the same with her divorce, engagement, and wedding. Maybe we’ll see “commerce courtship” as Goop’s next trend.

An entire Jeopardy! category about The Rock? My dumb ass would ace this. If you have a minute to watch, listen for the Kevin Hart insult. Alex Trebek’s delivery is, as always, perfection.

It’s not a surprise that Katy Perry showed up for Miranda Kerr as the two have never seemed to have even a hint of an issue. I mentioned that Miranda didn’t post about Orlando on Father’s Day. I just checked and neither did Katy. It probably means nothing, right?

The brilliant Doreen St. Félix wrote about Big Little Lies for the New Yorker, “The second season is a little rude, and a little raw, and openly indebted to Andy Cohen and his army of Real Housewives.” I couldn’t agree more, especially now that Meryl has joined. Sometimes on Real Housewives a cast member will introduce her mom to the group and these mothers don’t f-cking play with their insults and, because of experience, can see the women for who they really are. That kind of mom makes a Real Housewife very nervous, which is the same dynamic that makes Reese and Meryl so fascinating to watch.

Oprah is on tour in Canada and wore some shoes that really, really hurt her feet. She gave them away. No amount of personal wealth can spare a woman’s feet from punishing heels. Sometimes the angles are just wrong.

This could be a future biopic.

Flip through the gallery for a rare Tilda Swinton sighting on Instagram. What’s Tilda like at a concert? Does she stand or sit? Does she sing along or dance? I can kind of imagine her shimmying along to the music.

Some bleak news (for me): I will be away for two weeks and will miss the Beckhams’ 20th anniversary!!!! It’s on July 4. Celebrate for me, OK? And let’s talk about it endlessly when I get back.
