Millie Bobby Brown, who is 14 years old, said at the Emmys that she texts with Drake, who is far from 14 years old (he’s 31 to be exact), and he gives her advice about boys. Some may have read that little story and thought, “Awww, how cute and sweet of a grown man to give dating advice to a teen girl he’s not related to.” But many others read that little story and thought, “How not cute and not right for a grown man to text with a teen girl he’s not related to.” Millie Bobby Brown has something to say to the ones side-eyeing her friendship with Drake.
Today in “extremely random friendships that I couldn’t have predicted even with the help of a crystal ball” news, 14-year-old Millie Bobby Brown of Stranger Things claims she’s friend with 31-year-old Drake. This is the second time this week Drake has made the news for his relationship with a teen girl, except this relationship is a lot more G-rated.
It’s a bit redundant to say so, because aren’t all award shows just an excuse for fashion houses to clean out their local Fabric Barn and send a famous person down the carpet in more material than a 1980s canopy bed set? But the Emmys did see a lot of by-the-yardage last night, like on Jessica Biel, who said yes to a white Ralph & Russo dress. If you think Jessica and Justin Timberlake look like they stopped by the Emmys on their way to appearing on the top of a wedding cake, you’re not the only one.
Obviously nothing can ever top the legendary sequinned charisma of Lil’ Kim’s purple nipple cover at the 1999 MTV VMA’s, but that’s not nearly a good enough excuse for people not to try. An iconic look is like rolling dice; you might wear something that ends up in one of those Best Looks of ALL TIME galleries for the rest of the internet’s existence, or you might be just wearing clothing. Cardi B could have shocked eyes by showing up in big hair, a dramatic cape, and no pants, but – yawn – been there, done that. Instead, Cardi B made her first red carpet appearance since giving birth last month in a purple gown by Nicolas Jebran and a pussycat wig. Cardi is giving me eccentric Beverly Hills housewife at a charity gala trying to steal the spotlight from her rival Bitsy Saint Claire. Wait a second – rich, attention-getting, short dark hair, daughter’s name spelled with an unnecessary K? Kris Jenner must be so flattered right now.
14-year-old Millie Bobby Brown of Stranger Things is very popular. I’m sure you lost count how many grown men in pink dresses carrying a box of Eggo waffles you saw this and last Halloween. Unfortunately, Millie recently became popular on social media for a shitty reason. Millie was turned into a homophobic meme, which resulted in Millie quitting Twitter for a while.
Last night Millie won Best Performance in a Show at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, and her acceptance speech contained a direct message to the trolls responsible for those memes.
Nothing sells tabloids in England like transcripts of a wire-tapped phone conversation of the Royal Family or Cheryl Cole breakup rumors (what will her next last name be?!), but the latest round of relationship-on-the-rocks reports may be false…or at least not ready to be announced until some financial settlement is made. Cheryl was rumored to be in “crisis talks” with the father of her baby Liam Payne, and it wasn’t just a crisis of some of the fug fashion he rocks on Instagram. While the word was they were oh-so-close to breaking up, they both arrived to the red carpet of the BRIT Awards tonight in London looking like their usual Mrs. Robinson-and-boytoy selves.
