On Instagram, Adele posted a photo of herself with the actresses, along with a lengthy caption. “The most influential people in my life have always been women,” Adele wrote. “My family, my friends, my teachers, my colleagues, and my idols. I am obsessed with all the women in my life. I adore them and need them more and more every day.”
“I am so grateful to be a woman, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I hope I’m not only defined by my gender though, I hope I’m defined by my input to the world, my ability to love and to have empathy. To raise my son to be a good man alongside the good man who loves me for everything I am and am not.”
Adele closed by writing, “I want what’s best for people, I think we all do. We just can’t agree on what that is. Power to the peaceful, power to the people.”
Adele recently paid tribute to two female idols of hers: Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan, who died on January 15 at age 46, and Celine Dion, whose concert Adele apparently attended recently.
The Kardashian and Jenner sisters got together for a photo shoot for Calvin Klein’s “Our Family” campaign, and it marks the first time all five sisters have been together since reports of Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian’s pregnancies first surfaced.
Khloe has confirmed her pregnancy, but Kylie has yet to do the same. In the ad, Kylie is the only one that is covered up while the rest of them happily flaunt their stuff in their underwear.
Twitter responded with a resounding eye-roll. One user tweets out: “Is @KylieJenner wearing Calvins too? I can’t tell because y’all wrapped her up in a blanket so we wouldn’t know she is pregnant” while another keeps it simple, tweeting “Kylie we know.”

Sam Smith says he has already planned his own funeral and he promises, “It’s gonna be fabulous.” During Sam’s appearance on the Australian TV show The Project, one of the anchors joked that Sam’s music is so heartbreaking that if Sam died, and they played his own music at the funeral, it’d be the saddest thing ever. Sam responded to that by saying, “No, my funeral’s gonna be, like, disco music!”
“Yeah, I’ve already planned my funeral, it’s gonna be fabulous,” he continued. When one of the anchors asked if he could tell them any of the details, Sam replied, “No, it’s actually quite explicit! But, there’s gonna be a lot of drag queens!”
Sam also talked about how weird it is when he looks out into the audience at his concerts and spots a big star there. “Definitely a few times I’ve had that,” he said. “Seeing Kim K[ardashian] at my show was quite weird…and Chaka Khan! Ohmigod, I freaked out!”

Scarlett Johansson slammed James Franco for his alleged sexual misconduct at the L.A. Women’s March on Saturday–but critics were quick to point out that the actress has worked with alleged molester Woody Allen three times and has been photographed laughing with convicted child rapist Roman Polanski. Piers Morgan tweeted, “Scarlett Johansson is so repulsed by James Franco she wants her #TimesUp pin back. She wasn’t quite so repulsed by child rapist Roman Polanski or Woody Allen, who married his wife’s adoptive daughter and whose own adoptive daughter says he abused her at 7.”
Scarlett once addressed the molestation claims against Woody by saying, “It’s not like this is somebody that’s been prosecuted and found guilty of something, and you can then go, “I don’t support this lifestyle or whatever.” I mean, it’s all guesswork.”
In a speech at the Woman’s March in Los Angeles on Saturday, Natalie Portman revealed that the first fan letter she ever received was a “rape fantasy” from a man and that things got more uncomfortable for her as her fame progressed. “A countdown was started on my local radio show to my 18th birthday–euphemistically the date that I would be legal to sleep with,” she recalled. “Movie reviewers talked about my budding breasts in reviews. I understood very quickly, even as a 13-year-old, that if I were to express myself sexually I would feel unsafe and that men would feel entitled to discuss and objectify my body to my great discomfort.” The Oscar-winning actress went on to explain that she built a reputation as a “prudish, conservative, nerdy, serious” young woman in order to feel her body was safe and her voice heard. “At 13 years old, the message from our culture was clear to me. I felt the need to cover my body and to inhibit my expression and my work in order to send my own message to the world that I’m someone worthy of safety and respect,” she explained. “The response to my expression, from small comments about my body to more threatening deliberate statements, served to control my behavior through an environment of sexual terrorism.”
Zach Galifianakis has revealed that he cut ties with Louis C.K.–who executive produced Zach’s show Baskets–as soon as his sexual misconduct scandal broke. “It was so disruptive in a harmful way to so many people,” he says. “We just kind of put our heads down and worked on the new season. This is the poison of celebrity culture: The fact that someone can think that just because they’re loved, they can do what they want. It grosses me out. That’s all I want to say.”
