Lady Gaga shows off huge engagement ring at the 2018 Grammys

Lady Gaga

As the Grammys got underway in New York, all eyes were on the red carpet – the looks, the beauty and of course, the nod to #TimesUp.

As far as appearances go, Lady Gaga has truly stolen the show with her gorgeous full-length, high-neck lace Armani catsuit and a billowing skirt. She pinned a Time’s Up badge to her shoulder with a white rose, and showed off a huge rock on her ring finger, leading many to think that it’s the ring Christian Carino gave her when he proposed.

It’s gorgeous!

She also rocked a snake ring, which many think was to show her support for Taylor Swift – she’s always been a fan!

Janelle Monae’s Time’s Up speech was the feminist highlight of the Grammys

Actress Janelle Monae delivered a powerful message on the Grammys stage on Sunday night as she introduced Kesha’s poignant performance of Praying.

Addressing the Time’s Up and #MeToo movement, Janelle, who was among the stars that wore a white rose to support women’s rights, called on the music industry to join the overdue tide of change.

“I am proud to stand in solidarity as not just an artist, but a young woman, with my fellow sisters in this room who make up the music industry—artists, writers, assistants, publicists, CEOs, producers, engineers, and women from all sectors of the business,” Janelle said. “We are also daughters, wives, mothers, sisters, and human beings. We come in peace, but we mean business.”

She continued: “To those who would dare try and silence us, we offer you two words: Time’s up. We say time’s up for pay inequality, discrimination or harassment of any kind, and the abuse of power.

“It’s not just going on in Hollywood, or in Washington, it’s right here in our industry as well. And just as we have the power to shape culture, we also have the power to undo the culture that does not serve us well. So, let’s work together, women and men, as a united music industry committed to creating more safe work environments, equal pay, and access for all women.”

Her message was echoed by Kesha, who reduced the audience at Madison Square Garden to tears with an emotional rendition of her song Praying alongside Cyndi Lauper, Camila Cabello, Andra Day, Bebe Rexha, Julia Michaels, and a huge choir.

Gal Gadot has the best response to Wonder Woman getting snubbed by the Oscars

Gal Gadot

The 2018 Oscar nominations are stacked this year. Greta Gerwig scored a directing nod for Lady Bird; both Octavia Spencer and Mary J. Blige are nominated for Best Supporting Actress; Get Out racked up; and for the first time ever, a woman is in the running for Best Cinematography. Even with all this progress, though, there’s still a glaring issue: Wonder Woman didn’t receive a single Oscar nomination. Granted, superhero films aren’t typically considered awards-season fare, but Wonder Woman was groundbreaking. It was one of the highest-grossing films of 2017, critically acclaimed, and featured a nuanced, impressive performance by Gal Gadot. Why the film was snubbed by the Academy — even in the technical categories — is a mystery.

Twitter users made it very clear they’re not happy about Wonder Woman‘s lack of nominations, but Gal isn’t sweating it. The actress told Entertainment Tonight she has no hard feelings about Wonder Woman being left out of the Oscars race. The experience making the film, for her, was the real reward.

“I was very moved and touched by the people who were disappointed that Wonder Woman wasn’t nominated, but we certainly never did the movie for that,” she told ET. “I think that you can’t have it all. We’ve done this movie and it was received in such an amazing, wonderful way, and we want to stay humble and grateful, and we’re going to have another movie, so who knows? Maybe the next one.”

Let’s get the 2020 Oscar campaign for Wonder Woman 2 started right now. Lord knows Gal deserves the gold if she has to battle Ares again.

Kim Kardashian shut down reports she asked her surrogate for a fourth child

Kim Kardashian West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West just welcomed their third child, a daughter named Chicago “Chi” West, via surrogate. “Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” Kardashian posted to her website shortly after the surrogate delivered. “We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister.”

It’s only been about a week since this news broke, and yet Kim already had to fight off an influx of rumours about Chicago and her plans for more children. First, she shut down reports that baby number three was named after Louis Vuitton. (Kim posted a photo of the iconic LV emblem to Instagram, and fans jumped to conclusions.) And now she’s taking to task rumours that she asked her gestational carrier for a fourth child.

The Daily Mail published a report with quotes from a “source” who claims Kim wants another baby and has already discussed it with her gestational carrier. However, the reality star dismissed this rubbish with a very apropos tweet.

“Fake news,” she tweeted out Wednesday night, along with the link to the Daily Mail piece. Check it out for yourself, below.

So that’s that, I guess.

What isn’t fake news, however, is how much Kim loves the woman who carried Chicago. “It’s not for everyone, but I absolutely love my gestational carrier and this was the best experience I’ve ever had,” she wrote on her website. “The connection with our baby came instantly and it’s as if she was with us the whole time.”

Sophie Turner has revealed one of her bridesmaids (and it’s exactly who we hoped it would be)

Game of Thrones Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams

There’s no denying Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams are one of our favourite celeb BFF duos. They’ve taken Carpool Karaoke by storm, are totally chill with embarrassing each other every so often, and have had plenty of other adorable moments. So it only makes sense that Sophie would ask her good pal to be a bridesmaid in her wedding to Joe Jonas.

During an interview over the weekend, Maisie was asked if she was “already bidding for a role as bridesmaid.” To which she responded matter-of-factly with a little laugh, “Oh, I’ve already got it.” She added that it’s “very, very exciting.” And it turns out they’re waiting for this season of Game of Thrones to be over before they start with all the planning.

While Sophie, Maisie, and surely some other GoT costars will be at the celebration of the nuptials. Maisie has already been quite the support for her engaged BFF, sharing the sweetest Instagram post when news broke. She wrote, “Congratulations to my beautiful girlfriend on her engagement ? This is just one of MANY life milestones we’ll share. Love you both.”

We can only imagine Maisie will have plenty of fun plans organised for the bride.

Olivia Munn gets real about rumours she’s dating Chris Pratt

Last year the Anna-Faris-Chris-Pratt-breakup left us devastated. One of our favourite couples in Hollywood called it quits and we literally lost faith in true love. And even though we had time to digest the news, some people were heartbroken to hear that Chris Pratt was apparently already moving on with Olivia Munn – the actress got a LOT of hate online and felt the need to clear up the dating rumours.

Olivia Munn

The media was portraying Anna Faris as this raging ex who was “furious” about Chris and Olivia’s alleged “secret dates”. So Olivia Munn decided to reach out to Anna Faris to clear the air and explain that there was literally nothing going on between her and Chris.

Taking to her Insta Stories this weekend, Olivia had some receipts to show fans who were giving her hate, but most importantly she wanted to show that women should always be there for other women. She started by saying “Hello!” and followed it with a series of empowering slides that read:

“1. Not every woman is scorned and upset after a breakup.”
“2. Not every woman is “furious” at another woman for dating her ex.”
“3. So even if I was dating @prattprattpratt, some tabloids got me and @annafaris all wrong.”
“4. Women respect and love each other a lot more than some people like to think.”
“5. Chris and I would have a horrible celebrity name.”

As if this lecture on ‘how to deal with Hollywood rumours’ wasn’t enough, Olivia also shared this screenshot of her reaching out to Anna in an act of female solidarity, to explain the rumours were NOT real.
