There’s no greater honor (for a publicist) than landing a spot on the Time 100, Time Magazine’s publicist prom. Induction into the Time 100 comes with a fancy photo-shoot (for some) and a seemingly randomly assigned essay extolling the winner’s virtue. Ergo, Jimmy Kimmel was selected to write about this year’s cover boy for the Leaders category, Dr. Anthony Fauci when Dr. Phil would obviously have been a better choice. You know, Dr. to Dr. Sometimes it makes a little sense, like Marlon Brando Jr., Leonardo DiCaprio, honoring Indigenous activist Nemonte Nenquimo who has worked to protect rainforests in the Ecuadorian Amazon, even though she’s way too old to fuck at 33. But then you have Kim Kardashian West waxing poetic about JoJo Siwa and you think to yourself, is it too early to start drinking?
Several weeks ago, Demi Lovato got engaged to her boyfriend of just five months, former soap actor/singer Max Ehrich. At 28, this is Demi’s first engagement, and methinks it won’t be her last, because shit is already starting to hit the fan. A bunch of Max’s old social media posts have resurfaced, in which the pretty boy declares his undying love for Demi’s sworn enemy/former bestie Selena Gomez. The internet brought out a tweet from 2015 that maybe takes a swipe at his future would-be wife, Demi: “There’s a female singer that screams so much, that’s why my girl S is better than you know who 😂 !”
Cans of RAID were put to use this weekend when allegations popped up about predatory famous roaches including one about the CAPTCHA-named smug thumb Ansel Elgort. A woman claimed that Ansel sexually assaulted her when she was 17 and he was 20 and she brought out DMs and a picture as evidence. Ansel responded to her allegation, painting her as a crazy ex-girlfriend who is now getting revenge on him because he ghosted her in 2014. Ansel’s accuser coming out with her story inspired another woman, who only went by Danielle on Twitter, to tweet about how Justin Bieber raped her in a hotel room in Austin in 2014. But Justin has defended himself. And he may look like a Nickelodeon Uncle Terry, but isn’t actually a rapist, so says The Biebs.
As you can see by those extra-large, open-mouthed WE WILL BE FRIENDS FOREVER!!! smiles, there was a time that Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez were once the most B of FFs. But it turns out those smiles were destined to be frozen in time, much like the 2011 Teen Choice Awards themselves. Demi recently spoke about the current status of her friendship with Selena, and she’s here to make it very clear that those days are behind her.
Selena Gomez has been back with new music, releasing two songs and music videos from her upcoming album. She performed them both at the American Music Awards last night and it was a swing and a miss. Homegirl was off key and her dance moves were… tragic to say the least. Hailey Bieber was no doubt at home grinning the whole time, I’m sure. But there’s a good reason that Selena tanked so hard last night: she got anxiety and had a panic attack before it.
One year ago, Ed Razek – the creator of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show – claimed he didn’t want to send trans models or plus models down the runway, because VS sells a “fantasy.” Ever since then, it’s been bad news for Vicky. Former models (and almost-models) have called out the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which is probably not happening this year, for being outdated, tacky, and having a vary narrow idea when it comes to women. And now there’s some more comments from Bella Hadid that definitely won’t be making the VS publicity team very happy.
