Courteney Cox launched a line of personal care and cleaning products (like hand and dish soap, surface cleaner, and room spray). The first run sold out and it’s back in stock with limited availability and is currently only available in the US. While many will eye-roll the US$30 price tag, it’s not out of the range of Aesop, Tangent GC, Diptyque, Oui, Le Labo, and Jo Malone. Some of those brands are consistently sold out, even at $85 a bottle. It’s basically a guest bathroom status symbol.
Never Have I Ever is dropping this summer and then they’ll have one final season, which means they will not be following them to college. This is absolutely the right decision as this group is way too ambitious and independent to all “coincidentally” end up at the same school, which is what teen shows do to extend the life of the show.
While promoting Life of Beth, Amy Schumer accidentally “outed” Michael Cera’s baby, twice. Oh and that he’s married. She double-outed him.
Business Insider published a deep-dive into Scooter Braun’s business, both personal and professional. This goes way beyond Taylor Swift’s master recordings and gets into his relationship with his clients like Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, and The Kid Laroi and a he said/he said regarding Kanye and the Yeezy brand. Managers are typically behind-the-scenes dealmakers, famous to other famous people but not the general public. Scooter has been front and center since Justin was a teen, heavily leaning into social media and media appearances (like podcasts). The only reason we know about Scooter Braun is because he wants us to know who he is, as he sees himself: a family-oriented good guy who nurtures young artists through difficult transitions. The article questions whether or not he actually cares or if he capitalizes on those public hiccups in order to swoop in as the saviour in a redemption arc (usually told through a documentary, like both Justin and Demi have done).
Really, why do we even know who Scooter Braun is? Think about the biggest artists in the world like Beyoncé and Adele and Rihanna – do you know who manages them? I do not. That’s the way it usually works as managers are there to facilitate the artists’ work and protect their financial interests, not “trying to be all in the videos”. The article is behind at paywall at Business Insider but the journalist Anna Silman wrote a thread about her work on Twitter.
