As we discussed yesterday, Kendall Jenner infuriated the modeling community by saying she would “never” do “30 shows a season or whatever the f**k those girls do” because she’s “selective” about the jobs she takes. Well, now, as expected, she’s backtracking. She tweeted, “The respect I have my peers is immeasurable!”. Jenner also praised models for their “tireless commitment” and beauty.
Aretha Franklin left behind a lot of money, and no will or trust. Her estate is worth a reported $80 million. Her four children filed a document yesterday listing themselves as interested parties. According to Michigan law, the assets of an unmarried person who dies without a will are divided equally among any children. Franklin’s attorney Don Wilson says he repeatedly told her to create a trust, but “nobody likes to give careful thought to their own demise.”
In a new teaser for season 15 of The Voice, Adam Levine takes a jab at Blake Shelton’s love of denim. “You’re such a nerd. You look like you’re wearing a pair of jeans that buttons up at your neck. You’re wearing a Canadian tuxedo!”. Blake was totally unfazed by the joke, and goes on to say that Adam makes the show “so fun” to be a part of.
Last week, 11-year-old Sofia Sanchez went viral after doing the “In My Feelings” Challenge as she waited for a heart transplant at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago. Sanchez has cardiomyopathy, a progressive disease of the heart muscle that requires heart transplantation for survival. On Monday, Drake surprised her by paying her a visit. Drake shared a picture of them and captioned it, “Me and my love Sofia talking about Bieber and owls and basketball.”
Tiffany Haddish angered Fifth Harmony fans when she threw shade at the group during the 2018 MTV VMAs on Monday. “Camila Cabello is nominated for five VMAs. And for those watching back home… hi, Fifth Harmony!” Lauren Jauregui has since responded by tweeting, “Waiting for the day when supporting one successful dope woman does not mean insult to other successful dope women. There is energy and space for us all to beautifully coexist and bless the world with our individual truths, stories and talents.” Meanwhile, Normani thanked Nicki Minaj for defending her onstage after the diss. “@NICKIMINAJ I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you. You perfect queen you! Thank you for lifting me up. God is real. Now y’all know I love me some Nickiiiiiiiiiiiiii. Congratulations on tonight!!! Proud of you always.”
Judging from their steamy behavior at a VMAs after-party, it looks like Halsey and G-Eazy might be a couple once more. Our source tells us Halsey was at G-Eazy’s table near the DJ booth, she was dancing all over him, and kissing his neck and all that. At one point they were even making out. They left together at 4:30 AM to go home and.. play monopoly or something. BTW after they broke up last month, Halsey told fans during a concert that hooking up with an ex was a bad idea. Maybe she should take her own advice!
We talked a lot about it yesterday, Madonna gave the weirdest tribute to Aretha Franklin at the VMA’s, in that it was really more of a tribute to Madonna. Yesterday, Madonna posted on instagram and addressed the negative response to her speech. “MTV asked me to share any anecdotes I had in my career connected to Aretha Franklin. I did not intend to do a tribute to her! That would be impossible in two minutes”. “Most people have short attention spans, and are so quick to judge,” she added.
Asia Argento is an Italian actress, she was a big voice in the Me Too movement after she came out against Harvey Weinstein, and girlfriend to the late Anthony Bourdain. She has fired back at claims that she quietly paid $380 000 in hush money to former co-star Jimmy Bennett, who accused her of sexually assaulting him when he was a minor. “I am deeply shocked and hurt having read the news that is absolutely false. I have never had any sexual relationship with Bennett.” She then said that it was Anthony Bourdain who decided to pay off Bennett so he wouldn’t try to extort her. I’m sure the truth will come out here eventually, I just REALLY REALLY hope she isn’t using her dead boyfriend as a way to get out of the accusations
After a fantastic night at the “VMAs” Monday night, POST MALONE had a pretty horrible Tuesday, when a plane he was on had to make an emergency landing. The private jet had just taken off from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, and was headed for the U.K., when the pilot realized the left tires had blown. The plane had to fly around for hours to burn off fuel, in anticipation of a rough landing. But luckily, it came down smoothly in New Windsor, New York . . . about an hour north of where it took off. Malone Facetimed with TMZ after the landing, and said he was “shook”. He also said he needed, quote, “a beer . . . and some wine at the same time, mixed together.”
