Post Malone is known for two things: hit songs and tattoos. Here’s a look at the ‘Circle’ singer’s most famous tattoos, and the meaning behind some of his ever-growing ink.

A bloody buzzsaw. The Ace of spades. A string of barb wire. The Anheuser-Busch eagle. The Motorhead snaggletooth logo. This is not just what someone might see when hanging out in your neighborhood metalhead’s garage: are also a partial list of the tattoos covering the body of one Austin Richard Post, better known to the world as Post Malone. Since breaking out in 2015 with his song “White Iverson,” Post has become one of the biggest hip hop/rock stars in the world, and it seems that with every new level of success, he gets a dozen more tattoos.

“I’m a ugly-ass motherfucker,” Post told GQ in a March 2020 feature, explaining while his ink, specifically the growing litany of designs on his face. Post has decorated his face with a variety of ink, including a string of barbed wire on his brow, an abstract design tattooed on his left temple, and the words “Always Tired” underneath his eyes.  “It does maybe come from a place of insecurity,” Post told GQ, “to where I don’t like how I look, so I’m going to put something cool on there so I can look at myself and say, ‘You look cool, kid,’ and have a modicum of self-confidence, when it comes to my appearance.”

As of 2021, Post still has plenty of untattooed skin on his body, so it seems almost impossible to keep track of them all. The count varies, from 65(!) to somewhere in the low 70s. Before it’s all said and done, Post will likely have more than a hundred tattoos, so here’s a look at some of the more significant pieces of body art adoring Malone’s body.

You always remember your first, right? “I mean, all of these, really, are spur of the moment,” Post said in a 2016 interview with GQ. During the interview, a young Post talked about how Justin Bieber was the one who inspired him to get tattooed. Justin was influential in helping Post out in the early days of his career (Post opened up for Bieber on the Purpose tour, and the two have been close ever since.) “[Justin] was in the studio and I was like, ‘hey man. Does that hurt?’” said Post. Spoiler alert: it does. During the convo, Post revealed his first tattoo was the Playboy bunny logo on his left arm.

“I was playing basketball with Justin Bieber while it was healing,” he said. During the game, Justin seemingly bumped into the design. “He just messed up the whole thing,” said Post. “But it still looks really tight. It looks like magma. Justin did apologize but, he’s going to have to buy me a new one.”

Post Malone was devastated when Lil Peep (Gustav Elijah Åhr) passed away in 2017 after an accidental overdose of fentanyl and Xanax. “In the short time that I knew you, you were a great friend to me and a great person,” he said in a statement issued to Billboard. “Your music changed the world and it’ll never be the same. I love you, bud. Forever.” To honor his friend, Post got a Lil Peep portrait tattoo on his left arm, right next to a tattoo of another of his musical heroes, Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain.

Lil Peep and Kurt Cobain are a running theme when it comes to Post’s tattoos. “The ‘Stay Away’ is inspired by Peep’s ‘Cry Baby’ tattoo,” Post said in a 2020 follow-up with GQ about his growing ink. “I thought it was tough as sh-t. I picked one of my favorite Nirvana songs and put it on my face.”

Seriously, Post Malone loves Nirvana. He performed a Nirvana tribute concert in April 2020 to help raise money for the UN Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and did a fairly awesome job at covering the songs. As he was blasting through “On A Plain,” “Drain You,” “Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle,” and the aforementioned “Drain You,” Post gripped his guitar with the

“It’s all [a gallery] of my favorite artists that have passed,” Malone told GQ in 2016 while showing off his finger tattoos. At the time, Post only had Pantera’s Dimebag Darrell, John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, and Elvis tattooed on his hands. “I’m about to do all ten. I’m going to get Jim Morrison and George Harrison next to John and everything. Without these guys, I wouldn’t be making music right now.” It appears that Post had a change of mind about The Doors’ lead singer, choosing instead to get Stevie Ray Vaughn and rapper Bankroll Fresh inked on his fingers. He did go through with the George Harrison portrait, though.

Post Malone’s Tattoo Of Always Tired

Why does Post Malone have “Always Tired” underneath his eyes? “’cause I’m always tired,” Post said in 2020. “I’m always touring, always working, not taking care of myself the way that I need to. I figured it was just very fitting for how I felt.” It turns out that these tattoos under his eyes were the only face designs that hurt the “Rockstar” rapper. “This one took a while, and it was like getting poked on your eyebrow through your eyelid.”

“So, I got the sword on my face,” Post said in the 2020 follow-up with GQ. In the four years since the first installment, Post had gotten a ton of face tattoos, including a claymore on the right side of his face. “Swords are f-cking awesome, and I’ve always been into them since I was a little kid. I figured, what better to make my mom mad than a nice big claymore on my face?”

If Post’s mother was upset over the sword tattooed on his face, she probably wasn’t thrilled when Post added a metal gauntlet holding a spiked flail. “It hurt like a motherf-cker,” Post told TMZ. “It’s like a gauntlet and a flail… it’s like a big spiked ball on a chain, it’s pretty brutal. Finally, I said fuck it, let’s do it.”

With the claymore and the gauntlet on his right side, Post decided to tattoo on the left side of his face with some heavy metal. Instead of sticking with the medieval theme, Post went in a more “contemporary hardware store” direction by debuting a bloody buzzsaw blade in February 2020. The tattoo artist behind the work, Ruben Reza, shared a behind the scenes look at the ink in July 2020, showing fans what it looked like before it was colored it.

Post has plenty of tattoos from different tattoo artists, most of which are his close friends. While Post was in Japan for the 2018 Fuji Rock Festival, tattoo artist Ganji — who has done many of his designs —  tattooed some ink on the left side of Post’s head. The ink resembles Japanese finger waves.

“It’s a cow skull. There’s really nothing to it,” he told GQ in 2020. “I just [thought] it would be cool, and I do it. People zoom in, and they say it looks like an old man’s butt. I don’t see it. It’s all about perspective.”

“I have an accidental Marshmello tattoo,” Post said during the 2020 GQ interview. “I was going to do a ‘smiley face,’ but I was like, ‘oh, what if he has x’s for his eyes. And then, I looked in the mirror, and it’s f-cking Marshmello’s helmet on his face.” Hey, for all we know, Marshmello has a Post Malone tattoo on his face. There could be anything underneath that helmet.

“I have this nice Texas flag skull,” Post said to GQ while showing off the design. The skull bears the Texas flag across its cranium, an obvious reference to Post’s upbringing. Though he was born in Syracuse, New York, Malone’s family moved down to Grapevine, Texas, when he was nine years old. The design was done by tattoo artist Yeyo Mondragon in 2016.

Post Malone’s Tattoo Of A Skull…On His Skull

Post’s love of Nirvana is unquestioned. Everyone knows that. However, he might be a low-key Misfits fan, considering how many skulls are tattooed on his body. When Post shaved his head in June 2020, fans were shocked by the sudden hair makeover. Others were also surprised to see the giant skull tattooed on the side of his head.

It was just the latest – and probably, not the last – skull inked on his skin. In addition to the skull on his skull, Post has a “centurion-type skull” on his elbow, a skeletal demon samurai on his right arm, a Cold War-era skull-and-crossbones “Kill a Commie For Mommy” design below his left nipple, a skeletal riot cop (“to serve and protect”) on his left thigh, and a skull in a headdress on his ankle. Even Glen Danzig would say, that’s a lot of skulls.

There are some themes to Post’s tattoos. He loves skulls. He loves paying homage to his musical heroes (he also has tattoos of Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash.) He loves guns (he has a handful of tattoos related to the U.S. Constitution’s second amendment.) As indicated by the tattoos on his knuckles and the string of barbed wire over his brow, he also loves barbed wire. “I just think barbed wire is cool,” he told GQ in 2020. “And it was a cool idea to do it as a trim [to his hairline],” he said. “I’m going to regret it when I start balding. Hopefully, I can up-do my whole head. Maybe next time we talk, I’ll have my whole head tattooed.” With the way things are going, that seems very, very likely.

Disney star Joshua Bassett has reacted to Sabrina Carpenter’s new song ‘Skin’, which fans believe is a response to Olivia Rodrigo’s hit ‘Drivers License’.

If you’ve been on the internet over the past week, you’ve probably heard something about a rumored love triangle between three young Disney stars. Olivia Rodrigo, 17, first dropped her record-breaking hit, “Drivers License”, then Sabrina Carpenter, 21, issued, what many fans believe is, her response with a new song, “Skin”. Now, Joshua Bassett, 20, who rounds out the rumored love triangle, has reacted to Sabrina’s January 22 track, writing on his Instagram Story, “been stuck in my head since i heard it!!! congratulations [Sabrina Carpenter] on ‘Skin’, the new label, & all that’s to come!!!”

While Sabrina never mentioned anyone by name in the new track, fans naturally interpreted the song as a direct response to the High School Musical: The Musical: The Series star’s song “Driver’s License”. The breakup ballad was seemingly inspired by her co-star Josh, and his rumored romance with 21-year-old Sabrina. In the track, which debuted number one on the Billboard Hot 100, earned 76.1 million U.S. streams in one week, and went viral on TikTok, Olivia sings about a “blonde girl” who is “so much older” than her.

In Sabrina’s “Skin”, she sings, “Maybe we could’ve been friends if I met you in another life / Maybe we could pretend there’s no gravity in the words we write / Maybe you didn’t mean it / Maybe blonde was the only rhyme.” Fans quickly noticed those weren’t the only seemingly pointed lyrics in the song. In the chorus, Sabrina then sang about a mysterious “he”, and a scorned third person. “You can try to get under my, under my, under my skin / While he’s on mine / Yeah all on my, all on my, all on my skin / I wish you knew that even you can’t get under my skin / If I don’t let you in.”

Meanwhile, “Drivers License” has shattered Drake‘s streaming record for “God’s Plan”, becoming a Gen Z anthem and the first big hit of 2021. Olivia recently spoke to Billboard about the lyrical content of her massive hit. “I totally understand people’s curiosity with the specifics of who the song’s about and what it’s about, but to me, that’s really the least important part of the song,” she explained. “It’s resonating with people because of how emotional it is, and I think everything else is not important. …To see it do really well — to have this really painful moment in my life, and turn it into something beautiful that can maybe help people through a tough time that they’re having, like I was having a tough time — it’s just so empowering. I feel grateful that I got to do that.”

Keyshia Cole and Ashanti slayed their epic Verzuz battle, bringing out some of their biggest hits!

Social media was not happy with Keyshia Cole, 39. The Just Like You singer was more than fashionably late her Verzuz battle against Ashanti, 40, on Thursday, Jan. 21. Even Diddy, 51, took to the comments to express his frustration. “Come on, Keyshia!!!” he exclaimed in the comments, as others took to Twitter to complain. “After making us wait over a month for this #Verzuz, Keyshia and Ashanti have the nerve to be late,” one fan wrote.

Once the show was on the road, Keyshia and Ashanti slayed with hit after hit! Ashanti brought out all her Murder Inc. era tunes, including “Down 4 U” with Ja Rule, all from an iconic silver throne fit for royalty. She brought back all the old school vibes with “Baby,” harmonizing on the track just like it was the early ’00s. “See I can never feel at home with you/I gave up everything I owned for you,” she crooned, looking incredible in a sexy blazer dress with a long pearl necklace over it. Of course, she couldn’t miss classics “What’s Luv” with Fat Joe and her version of “Into You” with Fabolous.

Keyshia sounded incredible as she showed off her vocal range on 2008’s “Playa Cardz Right” with 2Pac, shouting out the late rapper who was a close friend of her brothers. “I was almost signed to Death Row Records — that was so long ago,” she reflected on her teen years when she was first starting out. “The fact I was still able to make it after knowing [2Pac and the Death Row group] — my brother was really close with ‘Pac and everything…he died when I was 16. I made it so many years after he told me I would, and we were able to do a song with him…It’s a blessing to say I made it so far after so much time invested,” she added before getting into the forever-classic tune. Keyshia also performed her unforgettable Diddy collaboration “Last Night,” with O.T. Genasis even popping in for “Love,” a song he remade in 2019.

The highly anticipated Verzuz battle was originally scheduled to take place on Dec. 12, but was unfortunately cancelled after Ashanti tested positive for COVID-19. “Hey y’all just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your thoughts and prayers. I’ve gotten so many calls, texts, emails and DMs (direct messages) checking in on me and my family and I’m super grateful for that,” Ashanti wrote on Dec. 24, 2020. “I’m feeling much better … Thanking God that my mom is out of the hospital and my dad is doing well, she added, confirming she recovered from the virus in January.

It’s Sabrina Carpenter’s turn to tell her ‘side.’ After fans theorized that Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Drivers License’ was about Joshua Bassett and Sabrina, fans believe the Disney star clapped back in her new song ‘Skin.’

With Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” smashing all sorts of streaming records, Sabrina Carpenter – one-third of the rumored love triangle behind “Driver’s License” – has issued a song of her own. Amid speculation that Olivia’s breakup ballad was directed at her High School Musical: The Musical: The Series co-star Joshua Bassett, after he was spotted hanging out with Sabrina, the 21-year-old Girl Meets World starlet released a song called “Skin” in which she boldly sings, “But you be tellin’ your side, so I’ll be tellin’ mine.”

While Sabrina never mentions anyone by name, fans naturally interpreted the song to be a direct response to Olivia’s “Driver’s License,” thanks to many tell-tale lyrics. Off the bat, fans noticed that Sabrina sings about a certain someone who used the word “blonde” (in “Driver’s License,” Olivia sang, ‘And you’re probably with that blonde girl’).

Seemingly responding to Olivia’s rumor-sparking lyric, Sabrina sings in her new song, “Maybe we could’ve been friends if I met you in another life / Maybe we could pretend there’s no gravity in the words we write / Maybe you didn’t mean it / Maybe blonde was the only rhyme.”

Those weren’t the only lyrics in “Skin” that had fans furiously sharing theories on Twitter and YouTube. In the chorus, Sabrina then sings about a mysterious “he” — who of course fans presume was Joshua — and a scorned third person: “You can try to get under my under my under my skin / While he’s on mine / Yeah all on my, all on my, all on my skin / I wish you know that even you can’t get under my skin / If I don’t let you in.”

— Linnea (@mslinneag) January 22, 2021

The third clue was perhaps the most on-the-nose (to fans, anyway). “Don’t drive yourself insane / It won’t always be this way,” Sabrina sings. Yes, Sabrina said drive — which fans didn’t think was a coincidence, considering that Olivia’s hit song is of course named, “Driver’s License.”

“Drivers License” currently sits atop the Billboard Hot 100, as well as the Spotify, Amazon, and iTunes charts. It has amassed over 82 million domestic streams in its first week, shattering Drake‘s record for “God’s Plan.” The success of the Gen Z anthem – described by Stereogum as “prime Spotify-core sadgirl fare” that also has elements of “an old-fashioned power ballad” – is partially due to rumored behind-the-scenes drama. Olivia, 17, stars opposite Joshua, 20, on the High School Musical reboot. Like Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, Olivia and Joshua were rumored to be dating in real life before supposedly breaking it off sometime in 2020 (this has never been confirmed, and was purely speculation).

When “Drivers License” dropped, fans scoured the lyrics, and one handful of lines (“And you’re probably with that blonde girl / Who always made me doubt / She’s so much older than me / She’s everything I’m insecure about”) resulted in a lot of chatter. Though “Drivers License” was bound to be a success — it’s a song about loneliness and disappointment following a rite of passage, and a whole generation just lived through a year of COVID-19 — anyone who’s paid attention to the pop charts knows, nothing helps a song be a smash more than some connotation (just ask Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, Fleetwood Mac, Drake, Pusha T, and the countless million other artists who have written songs about another person.)

“I totally understand people’s curiosity with the specifics of who the song’s about and what it’s about, but to me, that’s really the least important part of the song,” Olivia said to Billboard when discussing the lyrical content of her massive hit. “It’s resonating with people because of how emotional it is, and I think everything else is not important. …To see it do really well — to have this really painful moment in my life, and turn it into something beautiful that can maybe help people through a tough time that they’re having, like I was having a tough time — it’s just so empowering. I feel grateful that I got to do that.”

Olivia Rodrigo arrives at the world premiere of “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” on Monday, Sept. 30, 2019, at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles.

Sabrina’s response comes a week after Joshua released the lead single off his upcoming debut ep, “Lie Lie Lie.” Described as a pop-rock kiss-off anthem, some fans have taken Joshua’s song as a response to “Drivers License.” It’s hard not to interpret it as such, once you’re aware of the alleged drama: “So they told me all the things that you said / Runnin’ all over my name / And you’re acting, oh, so innocent / Like I’m the only one to blame,” he sings at the start of the track.

“I know what you say about me,” he adds on the chorus. “I hope that it makes you happy / You can’t seem to get me off your mind (Get me off your mind) / I know you’re lying through your teeth / You told them the lies that you told me / I’ve had enough of it this time (Had enough this time).” While these lyrics can be seen as a clap back to “Driver’s License,” Joshua revealed that an ex-bestfriend — not an ex-girlfriend — inspired the song.

“I wrote ‘Lie, Lie, Lie’ after I found out a friend had been lying about me behind my back for a long time. It always sucks to hear that someone you thought you could trust would throw you under the bus when it benefits them. It happens to all of us, and I think all you can do is seek out people that build you up rather than tear you down,” the actor wrote on his Instagram Stories, Seventeen reported on Jan. 14.

So cute! Justin Bieber shared a gorgeous new portrait with wife Hailey Baldwin as the pair soaked up the California sunshine.

Justin Bieber, 26, and Hailey Baldwin, 24, stunned in their latest photo! The Changes singer shared the sweet portrait to his Instagram account on Thursday, Jan. 21, captioning the snap “the best part of my day.” How romantic! In the photo, taken by Justin’s friend and Hannah Montana alum Moises Arias, Hailey rests her head on Justin’s shoulder as he gazes up at the sky. The Bare Minerals model appeared to be makeup free as her complexion glowed in the skin — see the photo here.

The Canadian-born singer rocked his usual casual style, staying cozy with a yellow beanie hat along with a black scoop neck t-shirt revealing some of his chest and neck tattoos. Hailey opted to wear a black tank top for the sunny day, also showing off her blonde highlights. Justin shared a second photo taken by Moises to his IG story, writing “Glizzy stays tucked.” Glizzy can be considered a slang term for a gun, fitting with Justin holding two fingers up in the air. Moises is, of course, best known for his role as Rico Suave alongside Miley Cyrus on Disney’s Hannah Montana.

Hailey openly talked about her skincare routine during an episode of The Biebers on Facebook Watch. “I’m super into skin care, especially because we’ve had a lot of time in this quarantine,” she confessed, admitting she has great natural genes thanks to her mom Kennya Baldwin. In the episode, Hailey gave Justin an at-home facial to help him combat his acne. “I told him that by the time we exit this quarantine he is going to have glowing, perfect skin so we are going to work on that. He has very nicely let me…you know,” she added.

Justin and Hailey recently enjoyed a romantic getaway to the Hawaiian islands! The couple soaked up the sun as they enjoyed some R&R, also getting out to explore the beautiful island. Hailey stunned as she rocked a black Off-White bikini while posing next to the ocean for a snorkeling excursion. In other photos, the couple stood in front of trees as they went for a scenic hike. Once again, the 24-year-old model slayed as she showed off her toned abs in a crop top and fitted black yoga shorts.

Casey Affleck has nothing but love for brother Ben Affleck’s ex Ana de Armas. He thinks she’s such a catch that she ‘won’t have any problems meeting someone else.’

Ana de Armas sure made a positive impression on now ex-boyfriend Ben Affleck‘s younger brother Casey. The 45-year-old actor positively gushed about her in a new interview, four days after it was revealed that Ben, 48, and Ana, 32, had split after nearly a year of dating. The couple lived together during the COVID-19 lockdown in spring 2020 and seemed to have a good thing going. “The reality is, I think that this year has been really hard on people in relationships,” Casey told Entertainment Tonight in a new interview while promoting his new movie Our Friend.

Casey believes Ana won’t have any issue in finding a new boyfriend, because he thinks she’s so incredible. “I think that Ana is just the sweetest, funniest, smartest, most charming person. I think she won’t have any problems meeting somebody else,” he explained. The Oscar winner also said he’ll be there for his brother, and believes Ben will have no problem finding love again either.

“I think she’s a catch in every way. And I’ll be there to carry Ben through it, but I don’t think he’ll have any problems [either],” Casey revealed. But he seemed to hope that they find new partners, telling the site, “My advice to them would be like, ‘Yes, think long and hard about it, because quarantine is not fun if you’re single.’”

Casey said that Ana is going to have an amazing year professionally, so she might not even have time for a new beau. “I saw her performance as Marilyn Monroe in this movie called Blonde, which hasn’t come out, and I would bet a lot that she’s gonna pick up every single award. She’s gonna have a good year. I’m not too worried about her.”

As for the photo of a man with a mask throwing away a cardboard cutout of Ana into Ben’s trash bin outside of his home, many folks on Twitter claimed that it was Casey doing the deed as they appeared to have similar eyes. “No, that’s not me,” the Manchester By The Sea star confessed to ET.

“A bunch of people sent that picture to me and I was gonna tweet some, like, joke, response or something. And then I couldn’t think of one and a joke didn’t seem appropriate,” he said. “And I don’t have Twitter so that wasn’t going to work. But it definitely wasn’t me.” Well that’s a relief, especially after he had such nice things to say about Ana!

Khloe Kardashian modeled two chic products from her Good American brand — distressed jeans and a puffer jacket made of faux sherpa — while striking a sizzling pose for Instagram.

Khloe Kardashian, 36, knows how to model a pair of jeans! The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star popped her backside while showing off her Good American brand’s “Good Legs Released Hem” jeans, which retails for $99, on the company’s Instagram page on Jan. 21. The high-rise skinny jeans featured distressed detailing on the back pockets, which drew even more attention to her toned derriere (a good style trick, we must add). Khloe paired the jeans with another Good American piece: her brand’s “Two Tone Sherpa Puffer” jacket (made of faux sherpa, don’t worry), which retails for $169. You can check out the photo, here.

“Outerwear for anywhere [check mark emoji] @khloekardashian in her favourite two tone Sherpa puffer and the Good Legs released hem,” read the photo’s caption, which was posted to the Good American Instagram page. Khloe wore sparkly silver eyeshadow and her caramel hair in loose waves for the picture as she posed against a beautiful backdrop, which appeared to be the canyons of Calabasas.

Khloe also shared a filtered, behind-the-scenes shot from the shoot on Jan. 12, which you can see above. “Morning!,” Khloe captioned the shot taken from behind. As expected of an entrepreneur running a retail brand, Khloe’s quite the fashionista — and if you’re a fan of her footwear, too, here’s where to grab her go-to Timberland boots that would go perfectly with the jeans above.

When Khloe’s not running her business, she’s hanging out with her daughter True Thompson, 2. On Jan. 20, Khloe filmed her daughter adorably singing “Let It Go” from the Frozen soundtrack as they relaxed in the backyard of their Calabasas mansion. This was also after Khloe shared a photo of her and True hanging out in reindeer print pajamas from Burts Bees Baby (you see, True’s a fashionista just like her mom). They have been enjoying one-on-one time together since returning from a happy trip to Boston, where they celebrated Christmas with True’s dad Tristan Thompson; Tristan relocated to Massachusetts after signing a $19 million contract to play for the Boston Celtics in the fall of 2020.

‘Dickinson’ Season 2, Episode 5 Recap: Go On & Eat Forbidden Fruit

‘Dickinson’ Season 2, Episode 5 Recap: Go On & Eat Forbidden Fruit

Apple TV+


Dina Sartore-Bodo
Managing Editor

In episode five of ‘Dickinson, Emily is faced with temptation like never before — and I don’t think Sue likes it!

The fifth episode of season two is the kind of episode that beautifully exemplifies what kind of show Dickinson is: a creative marriage between facts, fiction, and the fun to be had playing in the grey areas in-between. Many notable figures of the day pop up in this episode, all putting under a microscope for Emily what it can mean to be famous.

It’s a big night for Emily: she plans to announce at Sue and Austin’s salon that she’ll soon be published by editor Sam Bowles. However, when she arrives, she’s quickly put on edge, as Jane and her Gang, the greatest collection of secondary character commentators since Statler and Waldorf, promptly tell her they’ve heard Sam sleeps with all his female writers. Emily tries to block out their noise and enjoy being on Sam’s arm as he shows her off. Still, there’s no doubt he’s flirting with her every chance he can get. At first, Emily seems into it, but she can’t shake her unease, especially once they meet painter Sanford Robinson Gifford (um, is that you, Jibz Cameron?!) and he talks up Sam’s taste for ‘flavors of the month.’

Flustered, Emily goes to find Sue, and asks her if the rumors are true about Sam. Sue is furious, not only because Sam is married to her close friend, Mary, but because of how these rumors are ruining Emily’s big moment. Yes, for the first time, it actually sounds like Sue’s invested in Emily’s feelings, rather than her rise to fame. Sue gives Emily the kind of pep-talk all women should have in their back pocket anytime their girlfriends, sisters, and/or female-friends have their accomplishments put to question. And with that, Emily has the strength to get back out there and returns to the parlor to hear from  Sue’s very special lecturer.

Emily takes her seat next to Sam, as Sue introduces their guest speaker. The room falls silent as a wooden crate is carried in by Henry and placed in the middle of the room. The box begins to shake, and suddenly, the lid flies off and who should appear, but the infamous Henry ‘Box’ Brown. (It’s well recorded that Brown, an escaped Virginia slave who made his way to Philadelphia by mailing himself in a box, was also a noted abolitionist speaker in the Northeast, and a magician. Another amazing nod to history by the writers.) While the room is captivated by Brown, Sam convinces Emily to sneak off to the library, all while Sue watches them leave out of the corner of her eye.

Ayo Edebiri as Hattie in season 2 of ‘Dickinson’ (Apple TV+)

Now, we’ll pause on Emily for a second, because this episode is the launching pad for perhaps the most captivating story of the season. As Emily struggles with the decision to be published, Henry, Hattie, and many other freed slaves in the area are actually fighting tooth and nail to have their voices heard. The empowered group of abolitionists have been working hard to get their message out and start a revolution, publishing their own paper in secret. They find an ally in the most unlikely of people: Austin. Seems he’s been not only loaning out his barn for their meetings, but as Sue’s salon rages on inside, Austin surprises his revolutionary friends with their own printing press. Now Hattie, played by the incredibly talented Ayo Edebiri, has a great scene about ‘Box’ Brown being actively bad for the community and being furious about losing her spot on the front page to this guy. But as soon as she sees the gift from Austin, she goes speechless. It’s a great scene, and it’s the start of an even bigger story in Dickinson to come, so stay tuned.

Back in the library, Sam showers Emily with praise, flattering her with talk of her bright future. Emily blushes, clearly intrigued by the idea of fame, especially the way Sam tells it to her. But she admits that the idea sounds forbidden. “Forbidden fruit has an interesting flavor,” Sam says, as he reaches for Emily’s hands, and the gazes intently into her eyes.

That’s when Sue walks in, her eyes immediately fixating on how Sam is caressing Emily.  Seeing Emily and Sam together seems to unnerve her, a look of jealousy and “Oh shit, what have I done?” all over her face. But she rebounds, shifting quickly to pull focus on herself and ask if Sam still plans to write about her salon in his paper. He promises her he will, just as he promises to publish Emily’s poems. As Sue leaves, Sam turns back to Emily to ask, in the most seductive way imaginable, that she write something for him when she gets home.

And boy, does she ever. Back in the sanctuary of her room, Emily pens a letter to Sam’s wife, Mary. We never get to hear beyond the first line, as Emily’s mind drifts to Sam, and soon, she fantasizing about them passionately having sex. It’s all ripped clothes and fire and forbidden and then … it’s over. Emily lies alone on her bed, still fully dressed, clutching her letter to Mary to her chest. (Lord, what’s in that letter?!)

Pico Alexander as Ship in season two of ‘Dickinson’ (Apple TV+)

But Emily isn’t the only one enjoying a fantasy tonight. Did you really think I’d forget about my favorite Dickinson sibling, Vinnie? Never! Now, Lavinia has a problem on her hands called ‘Ship’. After recently becoming engaged in the worst way possible, he’s ready to throw in the towel and be a boring, respectable couple. No wild parties—more ‘novels and chill.’ (God, I love that!) But Lavinia has other ideas, turning a night of quiet reading into the wildest game of sexual role playing set to ‘The Scarlet Letter’ ever, complete with very convince costumes. And by the end of the night, it seems Vinnie has finally convinced Ship she’s just as crazy as Lola Montez. (*cue sexy guitar music*) — and she’s happy about it.

Emily Ratajkowski, Sophie Turner, Kelly Rowland and more pregnant stars have made sweatsuits look incredibly chic. See pics of these expectant moms rocking matching sets.

Trust Kelly Rowland to make maternity wear look fashionable! The former Destiny’s Child member is just one of the many stars who rocked comfy yet chic sweats while pregnant, and we’re officially obsessed. The singer put her baby bump on display when she stepped out in a pair of grey, flared pants and a loose matching top, which featured a plunging neckline and a tie just above her waist. Kelly wore her hair in natural curls and accessorized with gold-rimmed sunglasses, two delicate necklaces, and a cheetah print face mask. She gave the camera a thumbs up with her left hand, as she carried a Christian Dior bag in the other.

Sophie Turner, who became a first time mom in July 2020 when she and husband Joe Jonas welcomed their daughter Willa, regularly stepped out in cool, comfy ‘fits. Here she’s seen rocking a white hoodie and matching sweatpants, while out and about in Los Angeles. She completed the casual look with white sneakers and her blonde hair pulled back into a high ponytail. Sophie didn’t share any bump pics of her own while pregnant, however on the first day of 2021, she posted a series of snaps, showing off her growing belly throughout each month of her pregnancy. From pretty dresses to baggy tops, the Game of Thrones star always kept it stylish!

Emily Ratajkowski is another star who has stunned in cool sweats since confirming her pregnancy. When she isn’t putting her au naturel baby bump on display in a crop top, a bikini or a sexy cutout dress, Emily is usually running errands in New York City in a sweatsuit, over oversized tee. In January 2021, the supermodel was snapped with her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard out and about in Tribeca, while rocking black sweats, a red puffer jacket and white sneakers. Trust Emily to look like she’d just stepped off a runway — even in sweats! Scroll through our gallery above for more pics of your favorite expectant moms rocking sweats.

Michelle Obama always makes a fashion statement no matter where she goes and that’s exactly what she did when she attended to 2021 Presidential Inauguration in Washington D.C. on January 20. The former first lady looked absolutely stunning at the event when she rocked a custom Sergio Hudson look inspired by his FW20 collection featuring a long burgundy peacoat, a knit top, a thick leather belt with a giant gold circle clasp, and a pair of matching flowy high-waisted trousers. She topped her look off with a pair of Stuart Weitzman boots and a silk face mask. While we loved her entire ensemble, it was her coat that stole the show and if you want to try out her look for less, then you’re in luck, because we rounded up five affordable styles, below!

1. Jenkoon Women’s Wool Trench Coat

We love this wool-blend coat that’s available in four different colors. It has a slim fit, buttons down the front, two side pockets, plus, it ends right at the knees. It’s classic, simple, and has over 480 positive reviews. $66, amazon.com

2. Escalier Wool Coat Double Breasted

3. chouyatou Women’s Big Notch Lapel Single Breasted Mid-Long Wool Blend Coat

This cozy and chic jacket is made from 75% wool, 20% polyester, and 5% cashmere, which is a perfect combination of warmth and softness.

5. Aprsfn Women’s Elegant Solid Color Mid-Length Thicken Warm Wool Blend Coat

Elizabeth Olsen Reveals Wanda’s Accent Isn’t ‘Gone’: There Are ‘Reasons For Everything’

If you’ve been watching Marvel movies and now ‘WandaVision,’ you’ve likely noticed Wanda’s accent has disappeared. Elizabeth Olsen explained that Wanda’s accent is ‘not gone’ and is ‘absolutely still there.’

When Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. Scarlet Witch, became a central character in Avengers: Age of Ultron, she had an undeniable Sokovian accent. Over the course of multiple films, Wanda’s accent slowly disappeared. In the Marvel series WandaVision, the accent is totally gone. Many fans believed Marvel just did away with the accent, but the accent (and lack thereof) is still an important aspect of the story.

“It hasn’t gone anywhere,” Elizabeth told Collider. “There have been reasons for everything. It lightened up when she started living in the States, and in WandaVision she is playing the role of being in an American sitcom and so it’s not gone. It is absolutely still there.”

Wanda’s accent has been the subject of many questions since it started disappearing. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed 4 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, revealed some backstory in 2018 behind why Scarlet Witch lost her accent.

“We have intentionally tried to strip that accent away for a couple of reasons,” the brothers said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast. “One is you’ll notice at the beginning of Civil War that Black Widow is training her to be a spy, and two is she’s been on the run, and one of the most distinguishing characteristics that she has is her accent.”

In the first two episodes of WandaVision, Wanda and Vision are seemingly living the perfect sitcom life. However, there are multiple hints that something is very off in this alternate reality. Wanda finds a toy helicopter with the S.W.O.R.D. symbol on it. S.W.O.R.D. is a subdivision of S.H.I.E.L.D.  Later, Wanda also sees a man who appears to be a beekeeper wearing a hazmat suit with the S.W.O.R.D. symbol on it. At one point, someone calls out to Wanda via the radio and asks, “Who’s doing this to you, Wanda?” New episodes of the series air Fridays on Disney+.

As rumors swirl that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are over, Kim’s finding ways to cope with her major stress. A source tells HL EXCLUSIVELY how Kim’s caring for herself.

Amidst reports that her marriage to Kanye West is going south, Kim Kardashian isn’t dwelling on negativity or feeling sorry for herself. Instead, the KKW Beauty mogul is focusing on wellness, self-care, and a whole lot of love from her supportive family! A source close to Kim tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that she’s “coping with the stress” by being “proactive,” and it’s definitely helping.

“It’s been a tough time for her, to say the least,” the insider said. “Her whole family has encouraged her to slow down for a minute and they’re supporting her every way they can — everything from helping with the kids, to working out with her twice a day, to just being there for her to talk to.” Kim knows that her siblings have her back “110 percent,” so she’s heeding their advice to “take care of herself and her emotions,” they added.

A bombshell report claimed in early January that Kim was getting ready to divorce her husband of six years after having “enough” of his antics. The same day, Kim posed in a SKIMs photoshoot without her wedding ring. A separate source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY that filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians actually contributed to their marriage struggles. “Kanye has never been into doing the show, the constant paparazzi, or the cameras,” the source explained. “That was a big thing they’ve fought about for years.”

Another contributor to their alleged marital issues? Kanye’s tumultuous run for president in 2020. The rapper announced his candidacy on July 4, and quickly began a campaign that got increasingly bizarre. During a July 19 rally in South Carolina, Kanye broke down in tears while claiming that he and Kim considered aborting their daughter, North West, now seven. Kim never publicly endorsed her husband, merely tweeting out an American flag emoji. On Election Day in November, she liked a tweet about voting for Joe Biden.

As breakup rumors continue to swirl, “Type-A” Kim is “slowing down and taking some time to breathe,” just like her sisters recommended. That includes meditating and finding quiet, as well as “fun stuff” like golfing and working out, her favorite stress reliever. “It’s one of the things that’s helping her cope the most,” the source divulged. “Right now, everything for her is about finding healthy ways to cope with her stress.”

Whatever happens, the entire KarJenner family will still support Kanye, the father of Kim’s four beautiful children, the source added. “He will always be a part of her family and that is very important to Kim.” HollywoodLife reached out to Kim’s rep for comment but did not hear back as of press time.

UGGs are here to stay! Hollywood’s hottest stars are keeping the  beloved boot trend alive and we rounded up the celebs who’ve stepped out in UGGs. — See Ariel Winter, J.Lo and more!

It’s always UGG season for stars like Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez and many more! When celebrities aren’t hitting the stage or the red carpet, they’re stepping out in their favorite UGG boots — from the adorable mini styles, to the classic short ankle boots and even the beloved Bailey button boots. — Take a look through our attached gallery to see your favorite stars rocking UGG boots!

More recently, Selena stepped out in a pair of camel-colored UGG boots while battling the bitter temperatures in New York City on January 19. The actress, who was photographed on the set of Only Murders in the Building, appeared to have on a pair of the brand’s “Bailey” style in camel. The specific design features either a zipper, button or tie on the back or side of the boot, which allows for the inside fur to flap over the front. Sel’s UGGs appeared distressed and worn — though, the weather was wet and snowy in the Big Apple that day. Additionally, she bundled up in a cream-colored fur coat.

Another style star who loves her some UGG boots is the one and only Jennifer Lopez. The triple threat star donned a pair of camel button UGGs while on her way back to the set of Hustlers on March 28, 2019. The actress, who was photographed alongside her sister Lynda, appeared to be wearing the popular Bailey Button Boot in camel. J.Lo, whose hair was styled in her character Ramona’s side-swept waves, wore a fuzzy grey robe and hoop earrings.

UGG has been around since 1978, when an Aussie surfer’s strong love for sheepskin became an idea that would turn into a worldwide obsession. By the ’80s, UGG had gained momentum, specifically in California, through surf shops up and down the coast. Although some would argue that UGG boots are outdated and a trend of the past — they’re clearly not going anywhere thanks to these stars and more. Check them out in our attached gallery!

After dating Nikki Hall for several months, Pauly D finally introduces her to his ‘Jersey Shore’ roommates in this EXCLUSIVE sneak peek at the Jan. 21 episode.

Nikki Hall has arrived in Las Vegas! Pauly D will introduce his girlfriend from Double Shot at Love to some of his Jersey Shore castmates for the very first time on the Jan. 21 episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. In the EXCLUSIVE preview above, Nikki arrives at the Las Vegas resort where the group is staying, and Pauly is admittedly a bit nervous for how things will go down at the family dinner he has planned.

“Tonight is all about making history right now,” Pauly explains in a confessional. “Nikki is here. She’s the full package. As a couple, it’s probably the most fun I’ve had in years. And, for the first time in one yearDeena [Cortese] will be at the same table as Angelina [Pivarnick]. So I’m happy to see Nikki, but nervous for what she’s about to walk into.”

As viewers know, Angelina had a falling out with the other Jersey Shore girls after they gave a raunchy speech at her Nov. 2019 wedding. The fight tumbled over onto social media in the months that followed. This season of Jersey Shore has been all about trying to bring the girls back together, and the guys found that they were moving in the right direction when Deena agreed to sit at dinner with Angelina for Pauly and Nikki’s sake. However, she made it clear that she didn’t want to talk to her during the meal.

Anticipating that things could get ugly during this face-to-face, Pauly pulls Nikki aside and coaches her through what to expect. “We have a couple of trigger words that we can’t say — two of them,” Pauly explains. “We can’t say the word speech and we can’t say the word wedding. Because it’s going to trigger Deena and Angelina and we don’t want them to fight. This isn’t about the speech or the wedding, it’s about Pauly D and Nikki.”

Luckily, Nikki is totally on-board for keeping quiet, and Pauly is ready to introduce her to the rest of the group. Of course, she already knows Vinny Guadagnino, who she also met on Double Shot At Love. She immediately gets along with everyone else, too, by showing up with a box of donuts. “Nikki really understands us,” Mike “The Sitaution” Sorrentino says. “She’s actually walking in with a gift of food right now. That right there is an awesome situation.” Jersey Shore airs on Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. on MTV.

Larsa Pippen had ‘good days’ on her mind when she took to Instagram to share her latest sassy bikini snap! Check out the TV personality’s newest photo!

Larsa Pippen has returned to her bikini queen thrown. The stunning former Real Housewives Of Miami star took to Instagram on January 21 to share her first bikini snap in quite some time.

The stunner’s fit figure was front and center, and the tropical location made for the perfect back drop for the impromptu photoshoot.

“Good days on my mind,” she captioned the image. It really has been a hot minute since Larsa last posted a steamy bikini pic. In fact, fans of the mother-of-four have to go all the way back to November 2020 to find the last time Larsa sported a two-piece! Despite the lack of snaps of Larsa sporting sexy swimwear, she still remains a total bikini queen.

Recently, however, fans have been paying much more attention to her love life than her Instagram feed. Larsa has been caught-up in a new romance with Malik Beasley over the course of the last few months. Although she’s still legally married to her estranged husband, Scottie Pippen, Larsa has not been shy about stepping out with the 24-year-old Minnesota Timberwolves player.

Indeed, she even spilled some details about what her future could look like, should her relationship with the young basketball star get serious. During a January 11 Q&A with fans, Larsa let slip that she “would” walk down the aisle again and even would consider having more kids! For now, though, the reality TV star seems poised to reminisce about happier days, just like in her recent snap.

Over the course of her time in quarantine, Larsa has shared some of the hottest pictures to her Instagram feed. From one-piece swimsuits, to throwback photos, and bikini pics, Larsa has continued to keep her fans stunned and leave them wanting more. If her latest post is any indication of what’s to come, we cannot wait to see more of Larsa sporting some swimwear soon!

If you want to recreate her look, you’re in luck, because her hairstylist, Yene Damtew, shared a tutorial on how to get the look as well as the hair iron to buy. While the exact hair iron Yene uses is discontinued, she admitted that she uses the HOT TOOLS Professional Wide Plate Digital Salon Flat Iron for Reduced Frizz, 1 1/4 Inches which is just as good.

There’s a reason why this iron has hundreds of positive reviews and it’s because people swear by it. One happy customer gushed, “I have long, naturally curly and often frizzy hair. I’ve been using the same straighter for 10 years, which worked fantastic for a long time but had slowly lost it’s juice over the last year. I researched multiple straighteners before choosing this one and I am so happy with it! What sold me on it was that it was 1/2 an inch wider than most straighteners, made specifically for thick hair. My curly hair is now straight and smooth and not frizzy at all! It gets hot super fast and I love the digital temperature control. I got a great deal on Black Friday, but if I had of paid full price, it would have been 100% worth it!”

Bow Wow opens up about how he feels about Angela Simmons’ new boyfriend in this EXCLUSIVE preview of the all-new ‘Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta.’ He tells his pal that Ang made the ‘best choice.’

Bow Wow and his friend Pimpin’ are in the studio together in this EXCLUSIVE preview of the Jan. 21 episode of Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta. Pimpin’ brings up that his girl Angela Simmons is posting new photos of her boyfriend. “I don’t have a girl,” Bow Wow quips to his friend.

Bow Wow and Angela have had quite the on-again, off-again relationship over the years. They’ve been friends since they were kids and something more at times. However, now they’re just friends. “I’m happy for her,” Bow Wow tells his friend about Angela’s relationship with boxer Daniel Jacobs.

Pimpin’ thinks that the rapper sounds a little “sad” about Angela’s new boyfriend. “No, I’m happy as a motherf**ker,” Bow Wow explains. “I approve of it. Like, I like it and now that kills all the questions that people on Twitter saying ‘yo, ya’ll should be together,’ and we keep telling people like, no. I’m not ready to be that man. I’m Bow Wow.”

He continues: “I’m still single, you know, and that’s by choice. The dangerous in love thing, you know, toxic relationships, I’m done with it.” Bow Wow knows that what Angela wants in life is “not what I want right now.” He adds, “She made the best choice.”

Pimpin’ also opens up about his recent breakup with his girlfriend, Diamond. They’ve known each other for 18 years and started dating again last year. He admits that their relationship was full of “ups and downs.” They have a knack for breaking up and getting back together. However, he says that this time is “different” because there’s a lot of “extra stuff” going on, including “a lot of insecurity involved in our relationship.” Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on WE tv.

Sen. Cory Booker and GF Rosario Dawson twinned at the Biden inaugural in matching blue face masks. We’ve got the photo of how the couple cloned while being sustainable for the big event.

There was no mistaking that New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker brought his actress-activist girlfriend Rosario Dawson as his plus one for Joe Biden‘s presidential inaugural on Jan. 20, 2021. The 51-year-old politician and the 41-year-old Sin City star twinned in matching blue face masks from her sustainable fashion brand Studio 189. The couple donned the African-made Blue Lola Hand-Batik Cotton Face Mask, which retails for $20, and looked so adorable together.

Cory shared a selfie of the pair at the U.S. Capitol while wearing the bright blue and black face coverings. He donned a grey wool coat with a bright blue tie, while Rosario matched in a blue coat with a blue patterned dress underneath. In his Instagram photo Cory joked that, “It was very cold out today. It was -45” referring Washington D.C. now being minus the nation’s 45th President Donald Trump, who flew to his home in Florida that morning and skipped Biden’s inauguration.

Later, Rosario and Cory went in for a kiss on the lips through their masks once they were at their seats for the ceremony. The beauty shared the photo of their PDA to her Instagram, which showed Sen. Bernie Sanders seated — killer knit mittens and all — in front of them. Both Cory and Bernie had challenged Joe for the Democratic presidential nomination, but ultimately came together as a party behind the 77-year-old former VP to defeat Trump.

Cory and Rosario have been dating since 2018. Here they are seen at the premiere of  Zombieland: Double Tap in Los Angeles on Oct. 10, 2019. Photo credit: AP. 

Rosario wrote in the caption of her Instagram post, “Grateful for the honor and privilege of witnessing herstory unfold beside my loves… 1-20-2021,” in a sweet tribute to Cory and new Vice President Kamala Harris. The 56-year-old has made history by becoming the first woman, first Black and first South Asian to hold the position.

The couple can be seen in the video above of other senators arriving for the inaugural ceremony at the U.S. Capitol. The good-looking duo appear at the six-second mark, taking in the sights around them. The pair first began dating in 2018, and confirmed their relationship in 2019. Rosario sweetly congratulated Cory on his re-election to the U.S. Senate on Nov. 3, 2020, posting an Instagram photo with her man and writing, “So proud of and grateful for you my love. I got to vote for you here in New Jersey and am so glad that you overwhelmingly and rightfully won your seat again. To know your leadership will continue to guide us with love, brilliance, patience, grace and effectiveness is the kind of representation and hope we need.”

Katy Perry closed out the ‘Celebrating America’ inaugural special by singing ‘Firework’ as real-life fireworks exploded over Washington, D.C. The pop star’s custom Thom Browne ensemble beautifully reflected the Washington Monument.

The Celebrating America inaugural special closed out with an epic fireworks display over Washington, D.C. after Joe Biden and Kamala Harris‘s inauguration on Jan. 20. So, it was only appropriate that the singer of “Firework” was chosen to perform against this pyrotechnics show: Katy Perry! The pop star looked incredible nearly five months after welcoming her first child with Orlando Bloom while singing her 2010 hit, “Firework,” by the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool and Washington Monument.

Thank you @KatyPerry for lighting up the night with your sparkling performance of "Firework." 🎇#Inauguration2021 pic.twitter.com/QAarZwLApB

The pop star stunned in a custom ensemble from Thom Browne, and the all-white outfit reflected the Washington Monument that served as her performance’s backdrop. The high-fashion look — which featured a cashmere coat, a silk satin corset and floor-length skirt, elbow-length gloves and a creamy train of luxurious fabric — also complemented Katy’s platinum white hair. Buttons covered in red silk satin added a pop of color to Katy’s regal performance costume.

Katy followed on the heels of incredible performances from John Legend, Jon Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake and Ant Clemons, Demi Lovato, Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters, and more. Unlike these performers, though, Katy’s participation in the televised event was announced a bit last-minute.

On the eve of Inauguration Day, which fell on Jan. 19, the “Roar” singer tweeted a photo of four patriotic microphones: one looked like the Statue of Liberty’s torch; another was embellished with silver stars; the third was bedazzled to look like the United States flag; and the fourth was plain white. Although Katy kept her caption ambiguous, the Presidential Inaugural Committee retweeted the photo, making it clear that she would be joining the inauguration activities.

— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) January 20, 2021

It’s no surprise to see that Katy was invited, though. Singing at political events isn’t new to Katy, who also performed her hits “Rise” and “Roar” at the 2016 Democratic National Convention to show her support for Hillary Clinton, who at the time was running against Donald Trump. So, Katy was understandably more than happy to sing at an event that also served as a farewell to Trump’s time in office.

Va va voom! Rihanna stepped out for dinner at Ballato’s NYC, which is owned by Katie Holmes BF Emilio Vitolo. The star stunned as she rocked a super sexy top and vintage YSL jacket.

Rihanna, 32, just turned the sidewalk into her runway! The Talk That Talk singer slayed as she stepped out in New York City for dinner on Wednesday, Jan. 20. RiRi showed some skin as she rocked an open blouse revealing a chocolate brown bra, likely from her own Savage X Fenty lingerie line. She paired the revealing top with a pair of loose fitting jeans, a vintage fur YSL jacket, and a mustard yellow duster for a ’70s inspired look.

Accessorizing with various chain necklaces around her body and under the blouse, she finished the look with a pair of white pump heels, and a logo hat from streetwear label R13. The Ocean’s 8 actress also sported a protective black face mask as she approached NYC hotspot Ballato’s, which is owned by Katie Holmes‘ boyfriend Emilio Vitolo. Rihanna was joined by flame A$AP Rocky, 32, however, the pair arrived to the eatery separately. The dinner date came after the pair celebrated Yams Day, which was started by Rocky — née Rakim Mayers — in honor of the late A$AP Yams. Yams, who was born Steven Rodriguez, started the A$AP mob back in 2006. He sadly died in 2015 at just 26 years old.

Prior to linking up again romantically, RiRi and A$AP attended the same event together in Jan. 2020. They were all smiles in a series of goofy photos as they posed backstage, holding fake money with the face of Steven/A$AP Yams. Rihanna and Rocky were seated in the audience together as they enjoyed the festivities, which was fresh off her break-up from billionaire Hassan Jameel, 32, after three years of dating.

Recently, Rihanna took A$AP back to her native of Barbados to celebrate the Christmas holiday with her family! The new couple were seen holding hands as they approached a boat for a romantic ride on the water, clearly not shy about displaying their PDA for the world. “It’s a huge sign of how happy she is with him. Rihanna is all about family so the fact that she invited him is very meaningful,” a source previously told HollywoodLife. “Her friends are taking this a sign that she’s getting serious with him,” the insider added.

Rumors around the couple have swirled for years, dating back to A$AP’s 2013 video for “Fashion Killa.” Rihanna played his love interest in the romantic clip, with many believing the romance was also an off-screen hookup. They have seemingly remained friendly over the years, with RiRi even including A$AP in her recent Fenty Skin campaign.

New year, new career! Former actress Amanda Bynes is giving it a go in the world of rap music, appearing on a new track by Precise where she drops bars about ‘diamonds.’

Amanda Bynes is just bursting with creativity! The design school grad and former actress is giving rap music a try. The 34-year-old’s voice can be heard in a teaser for Precise‘s new song “Diamonds,” where he credits the former East A star as his collaborator. Amanda’s voice comes on at the :34 second mark in the above video, as she raps about “Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds On my neck / On my wrist / Diamonds, diamonds, diamonds,” under a low beat.

It appears that “Precise” is the new rap handle for Amanda’s fiance Paul Michael. He posted two TikTok videos rapping the lyrics to the song three days ago, while seen sitting in what appears to be a bedroom. The YouTube video teasing the tune by “Precise” featuring Amanda was released on Jan. 20, 2021.

Her new song comes after Amanda debuted a brand new look on her fiance’s Instagram page. While it’s set to private, some fans shared the former starlet’s Jan. 11 stories photo where she could be seen wearing super heavy dark eyebrows. They were almost caterpillar-like above her blue eyes, with her facial heart tattoo still prominently visible on her cheek.

The photo was one of Amanda’s first social media sightings in ages. Her last Instagram post to her namesake page was on Sept. 11, 2020, where she showed off long brunette locks, a glittery septum ring and her face ink. She didn’t caption the photo, and the 2019 Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising graduate briefly rebranded her ‘gram as the Matte Black Online Store in July 2020, though it’s account @matteblackonlinestore is no longer active.

At the time of the rebranding, Amanda had cleared out all of her photos on her main account, including those with fiancé Paul. He proposed to the former All That star on Valentines Day 2020. “Engaged to tha love of my life,” she captioned an IG photo, showing off her large emerald cut ring on her nude-manicured hand. A year later not only are they still together, they’re rap collaborators!

Kelly Dodd and Andy Cohen butted heads on part one of the ‘RHOC’ reunion, which aired on Jan. 20. Andy grilled Kelly about her COVID-19 statements, while Kelly said her fans think Andy is ‘Anti-American.’

Tensions were high between Kelly Dodd, 45, and Andy Cohen, 52, when the subject turned to the coronavirus pandemic on part one of The Real Housewives of Orange County on Jan. 20. Kelly has sparked one controversy after the other for her insensitive comments about the pandemic, and Andy wanted to hear Kelly’s thoughts about wearing masks now that they were face-to-face.

“I hate wearing a mask, I think everyone’s on that with me,” Kelly admitted. “I will wear them because I have to. Does your pants protect you from a fart? Are the masks helping? I don’t know.” This led Andy to point out that he’s been receiving messages from fans who think the RHOC star is taking the pandemic too lightly, and so the Kelly backtracked by saying, “I feel bad for anyone who lost loved ones, I think it’s horrific, I think it’s horrible. Did I take it seriously? Yeah. But I also was frustrated.”

Andy persisted. “Your behavior has really outraged people,” the RHOC executive producer added, but Kelly didn’t seem to think this was hurting her fame. “My fan base is building, I haven’t lost any followers,” she insisted. This didn’t satisfy Andy, who added, “I mean, the amount of messages that I get that you’re uneducated, you’re putting out misinformation, you’re behaving like a moron.”

Instead of apologizing, Kelly decided to fight back by claiming she has received unfavorable messages about Andy as well. “I get them too, saying that you’re anti-American, that you put your political beliefs out there,  that they don’t want to watch a political show,” Kelly retorted. This caught Andy by surprise, who asked if Kelly’s fans think he’s “anti-American” just because he doesn’t “like Donald Trump.” Kelly confirmed that’s exactly what she meant.

The subject then turned back to Kelly’s social media posts about the pandemic. Andy wanted to know if Kelly ever took a minute to wonder if she shouldn’t post such things, and Kelly got defensive. “I feel like sh-t. I feel horribly and you’re making it worse,” she said.

Andy ignored the jab by asking, “Are you worried you’re gonna be on the wrong side of history?” Kelly no longer wanted to apologize and instead clapped back, “Oh my god, what do you want from me? Seriously, what do you want? I’m sorry for hurting people’s feelings when that wasn’t my intent. What do you want from me?”

This isn’t the first time Andy has scolded Kelly for her remarks about the virus. On Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in Dec. 2020, the talk show host asked if Kelly has “any remorse” for writing that the pandemic is “God’s way of thinning the herd” in an Instagram comment in April (Kelly later apologized for the remark via Twitter in May, but offered another apology on Andy’s show).

In May, Kelly also took to her Instagram Story while dining out and happily said, “No one is wearing masks here in Orange County. Yup, because no one is dying here of the virus.” During her appearance on WWHL, Kelly said that she was just “misinformed” at the time.

‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ will continue to marvel us with a fourth season. Season 4 is officially filming as of Jan. 2020, and HollywoodLife has the latest updates about the show’s production, the cast, and more.

Amazon Prime Video’s hit series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will return for a highly-anticipated fourth season in the very near future. After a delay in filming due to the COVID-19 pandemic, production finally got underway for season 4 in Jan. 2021 in New York City. The news of the show’s season 4 renewal was revealed in Dec. 2019. “We were thrilled to hear that for the fourth time, we do not have to pack up and vacate the premises,” creator and EP Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino said in a statement. “We’d like to thank Amazon for all their faith and support, their partnership and enthusiasm, and for letting us hang with our favorite people, the cast and crew of Maisel, for a little while longer.”

Mrs. Maisel continues to be a global hit for Amazon. Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, said in her statement about the show’s season 4 renewal that the show had its “most-watched opening weekend ever” with the launch of season 3 in Dec. 2019. “Amy and Dan have created such funny, charming, relatable characters, all with their inimitable wit and eye for detail, and our customers around the world will be delighted to have another season in the world of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” Jennifer’s statement continued. From season 4 filming updates to the cast, this is the latest news that we know about Mrs. Maisel season 4.

How To Watch ‘Mrs. Maisel’

Like all previous seasons of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, season 4 will premiere on Amazon Prime Video. All episodes will likely drop at once, similar to the past 3 seasons. Given that season 4 has yet to start filming, Amazon has not revealed the premiere date for the fourth season. The previous 3 seasons are available to watch on Amazon Prime Video now.

Season 4 Filming

Mrs. Maisel was one of the many shows delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, so the wait for the fourth season will be a long one. In Oct. 2020, creator Amy Sherman-Palladino revealed at the Woodstock Film Festival virtual panel discussion that the show was set to start back on Jan. 7, 2021. “Costume fittings are happening [now], sets are being built like mad. All of the stuff is happening,” she told TVLine. “We’re breaking our stories, we’re writing. And then in December we’re dragging the actors in and we’re going to table read the scripts. And then, come January 7, it’s, ‘On your mark, get set, go.’”

Executive producer Daniel Palladino also revealed at the Woodstock Film Festival that there will be “a lot more visual effects” due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. “Last season, our premiere had 850 extras in an airplane hangar. We cannot do that,” he said. But he promised season 4 is “going to happen, it’s just going to happen in a slightly different way.”

Over the past few months, the cast and crew have been making preparations to start filming at the top of 2021. “We were supposed to go back in June, and obviously it wasn’t safe to do that then,” star Rachel Brosnahan said on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show in Dec. 2020. “I just actually came from a wig and shoe and hat fitting. Literally just 20 minutes ago, walked in the door.” She added, “So, we are in the process of getting ready to go back hopefully safely in January, and are really, really excited. The hats are insane. The hats are out of control. We may have lost our minds with the hats this season.”

Rachel posted an Instagram photo of her first costume fitting for season 4 in Sept. 2020. She was masked, along with the designers. Rachel wore a gorgeous beige dress and an elaborate black hat. “We’re slowly and safely getting back to it but first costume fitting is in the books,” she wrote.

Rachel revealed that season 4 filming had started on Jan. 20, 2021. She posted a photo on Instagram highlighting the memorable day. “It looks a little different this year…but we’re back! Working away on @maiseltv Season 4,” she captioned the photo.

‘Mrs. Maisel’ Season 4 Cast

Rachel will be returning as the one and only Midge Maisel. The Golden Globe winner will be joined by her fellow castmates. The other cast members expected to return include Alex Borstein (Susie), Michael Zegen (Joel), Tony Shalhoub (Abe), Marin Hinkle (Rose), Kevin Pollak (Moishe), and Caroline Aaron (Shirley). As for new characters, Amy and Daniel are keeping those details under wraps for now.

As for other notable characters in the Mrs. Maisel universe, Sterling K. Brown is down to bring back Reggie, Shy Baldwin’s manager. “Hopefully there will be room for me to revisit the show in the future,” the This Is Us star told Glamour. Stephanie Hsu was introduced as Mei, Joel’s new love interest, in season 3. Amy revealed to Glamour that Stephanie would be back for season 4. When it comes to more scenes between Joel, Mei, and Midge, Amy noted, “Oh, you’ll get them.”

What about Lenny Bruce, you ask? Emmy winner Luke Kirby will be back in season 4. “He’s going to be in a little bit more [in season 4], which is great,” Amy said at the Woodstock Film Festival, according to TVLine. In season 3, Lenny and Midge had the ultimate will-they-or-won’t-they moment. Their intimate night out in Miami included drinks, dancing, and a lot of staring. At one point, Midge called Lenny out for “still staring” at her. He simply replied, “So are you.”

They walked back to Lenny’s hotel room together. Lenny opened the door waiting for Midge to go in, but she didn’t. She decided to get a cab and go home. As she walked away, Lenny asked, “Maybe someday? Before I’m dead?” She responded, “It’s a date!” Their chemistry continues to be explosive, and fans have been itching for these characters to get together for some time now. 

What Happened In Season 3?

Season 3 ended with Midge and Susie being fired from the second leg of Shy Baldwin’s (LeRoy McClain) tour. Shy’s manager, Reggie, cut them from the tour. Midge and Susie are forced to watch Shy’s plane take off right in front of their eyes. The firing came after Midge joked about Shy’s sexuality and basically outed him as a gay man to the audience at the Apollo. Reggie admits to Midge and Susie that he partly blames himself for how things ended up because he encouraged Midge to talk about Shy. He just didn’t know that she knew Shy is gay.

On top of this firing, Susie has gambled away the money that Midge was planning to use as a down payment on her old apartment. Susie believes she can replace the cash she gambled away with the insurance money she thinks she’ll be able to collect by burning down her dead mother’s house, but nothing in life is ever that easy. The thing is, Midge doesn’t know about any of this, nor is she aware that Joel has actually been managing her money this whole time.

Season 4 Plot

Amy noted that season 4 will explore the aftermath of Midge’s major career setback. “I think we’re going to pick up right after that,” Sherman-Palladino revealed to The Hollywood Reporter in Aug. 2020. “We may be doing a little jump within the season, but when we first start up we want to [stay in that time]. I mean, what’s the fun of totally destroying someone’s soul and heart and not getting to see the aftermath? That’s what comedy’s made of, soul-crushing defeat.”

As of Dec. 2020, Rachel had yet to see a script. “I have absolutely no idea what’s happening… I am being a hundred percent honest. I haven’t seen a script. I haven’t seen anything,” she said on Sirius XM’s The Jess Cagle Show. “I have no idea what’s happening this season. So I am just as excited as everyone else to find out.”

If the show does incorporate a time jump into season 4, that could put the timeline closer to Lenny Bruce’s real-life death. Lenny tragically died of a morphine overdose at the age of 40 in 1966. There’s no doubt that Lenny’s sudden death would devastate Midge.

Amy confirmed that the show would address Lenny’s death at some point during the show’s run. “The minute you put Lenny Bruce in it, you know where you’re going,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “You can’t pretend it’s not gonna happen.” She added that Lenny’s death could be a “cautionary tale” for Midge when it comes to “following your dream and the fact that every dream comes with consequences, and it can go great, or it can go off the rails.”

Season 4 could feature a serious falling out between Midge and Susie. Given Susie’s gambling problem and handling (or lack thereof) of Midge’s money, Midge could push Susie away. It’s only a matter of time before Midge learns the truth. Midge would likely not be happy with her ex-husband, Joel, for continuing to handle her money — as Susie’s urging — without telling her. Joel and Midge are technically still married, so they could end up pursuing the divorce route again over this.

Midge’s parents, Abe and Rose, lost their lavish Upper West Side apartment early on in season 3 after Abe quit his job at Columbia University. Given that he’s now working as a theater critic for the Village Voice, it’s unlikely Abe and Rose will be going back to the way they once lived any time soon.

It’s no secret that Mindy is one of Vice President Harris’ biggest fans.

Staying in shape isn’t easy, so some stars have found ways to change up their workout routines to keep things interesting. Check out Ashley Benson and more indulging in various exercise activities.

So many celebrities have found alternate workouts with fun activities to help keep their bodies moving without it feeling like a chore. From yoga, to hiking, to boxing and biking, to surfing, skiing and more, there are plenty of ways to do it.

Celebrities especially love to get their cardio in by walking on trails in Los Angeles, and Ashley Benson is no exception! The Pretty Little Liars star donned a sporty crop top and short black gym shorts for a hike in LA in Jan. 2021. Ashley also wore black athletic shoes and a face mask in a matching color, and proved that exercising can still be a stylish activity by donning gold necklaces that were dainty enough for a hike.

Sel was photographed leaving the pilates studio with her hair slicked back with sweat, and she even had to strip her t-shirt off to cool down after the intense class. Of course, the singer also made sure to keep hydrated with a big bottle of water, and she had her headphones hanging out of one ear so she could listen to music during her workout.

Boxing is another great workout activity — just ask Gigi Hadid! The supermodel showed off her fierce boxing moves during a workout in New York City. With some help from a trainer, she got in some punches and it looked like she totally nailed the intense class.

Paddle boarding is no easy feat — but Sofia Richie is kind of a pro! Although paddle boarding looks like an easy water activity, it’s actually quite intense and provides great exercise. Paddle boarding requires major arm work, along with core strength to stay balanced on the board. Sofia loves being on the water, and she wet-suited up for a paddle boarding trip in the ocean.

Jessica Simpson is turning up the heat in a new photoshoot for her swimwear line. She posed in a snakeskin one-piece while showing off a white parka in the snow.

Jessica Simpson was ski-resort hot tub ready in a new photo for her namesake clothing and accessories brand. The 40-year-old showed off her killer curves in a sexy one-piece snakeskin print swimsuit with a cutout around the mid-section. It included a black band that tied on the right side, along with black shoulder straps. Jess’ long, super toned legs were on display in the photo, looking so great thanks to the 12,000 steps she gets in each day for her fitness routine. You can see the smoldering photo here

Jess captioned the photo “give me steam,” as she stood next to an in-ground hot tub with steam rising from it and a snowy backdrop. But Jess wasn’t about to hop in just yet, as she also modeled her white platform “Brixel” snow boots, which go for $139. The mother of three donned an open white snow parka to cap off her wintry look, but still reminded fans that of swimwear was the focus in her Snake Charmer one piece, which retails for $98 on her site.

Jessica’s longtime BFF Cacee Cobb wrote in the comments of the swimwear photo, “How do you stay so hot in all that cold?” Fans also went wild for the snapshot. User @julie.kiehl told Jess, “Girl! I want to look like this at 40! You look amazing!” while @dom_cashmann wrote, “I wish I was this hot.” Fan @starsantoro wrote, “Hello Snow GODDESS” as follower @mootmagee told her “@jessicasimpson you look more beautiful than ever.”

Jessica lost a whopping 100 pounds in six months after she gave birth to her third child, daughter Birdie Mae Johnson in March 2019. She’s kept the pounds off thanks to her dedication to fitness and is down to her weight before she ever had children. On the eve of her 40th birthday on July 10, 2020, she even was able to fit into a pair of jeans she hadn’t been able to get on since 2006. Jess held onto them, hoping to one day be able to rock the True Religion denim once again, but feared she never would after three pregnancies.

But on July 9, Jess finally got her wish when she tried the jeans on and they fit!  She was so proud she took a mirror selfie and showed it to her Instagram followers. “I have kept these throwback True Religion jeans in my closet for 14 yrs (I’m not exaggerating!),” she captioned next to the makeup-free snap. “Figured that since I’m in the final hours of my 30’s I’d give them another try, and hello 40, so nice to meet you.” At 40, Jessica is now the best she’s ever looked

As part of Donald Trump’s final day in office, the twice-impeached president issued a ton of pardons. This included one for Lil Wayne, who was facing 10 years over a gun charge, and Kodak Black, who is currently serving time in prison.

Donald Trump’s presidency ended not with a bang but with an odious whimper of cronyism. Trump, 74, issued a long list of clemencies and pardons on Jan. 19, his last full day in office before Joe Biden’s term began, and two of those receiving Donald’s “generosity” were none other than Lil Wayne, 38, and Kodak Black, 23, who both publicly supported Trump amid his reelection campaign in Oct. 2020.

Wayne (real name Dwayne Carter) was facing up to a decade in prison on gun charges from a 2019 arrest. Meanwhile, Kodak (real name Bill Kapri) was already in prison after pleading guilty to “lying on background check forms while buying multiple firearms in two different incidents” in 2019 and was given a 46-month prison sentence that was set to end in Aug. 2022, per The New York Times. Now, Lil Wayne will be completely avoiding jail time while Kodak’s prison sentence will be commuted, which their shared attorney revealed.

“President Trump and his administration have been tireless advocates on behalf of the African-American community,” Lil Wayne and Kodak’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, told our sister publication Rolling Stone in a statement on late Tuesday night, Jan. 19. The attorney added, “These pardons are a perfect example of this administration following up on its reforms and commitments.”

In the past, Trump has used the power of his office to pardon or commute the sentences of his family (Charles Kushner, father of Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner), allies (Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, George Papadopoulos, and Gen. Michael Flynn, who were convicted of crimes committed regarding the 2016 election), supporters (Dinesh D’Souza, Joe Arpaio) and convicted killers (Clint Lorance, Matthew L. Golsteyn, and four Blackwater contractors involved in the Nisoor Square massacre.) As to how Lil Wayne got pardoned, it’s not that hard to find out.

Wayne (born Dwayne Carter Jr.) was arrested in Dec. 2019 as he arrived in Miami via private jet, after an anonymous tip prompted authorities to search his plane. The search uncovered a gold-played, pearl-gripped, .45-caliber Glock, ammunition, and drugs. Being that Wayne is a convicted felon, being in possession of the gun and ammunition was illegal. The rapper would plead guilty in Dec. 2020 to one count of possessing a firearm, and he faced up to ten years in prison. Wayne’s sentencing date was scheduled for Jan. 28, but now, that date is moot. Previously, Wayne served eight months of a year-long sentence after pleading guilty to criminal possession of a weapon in 2009.

Two months before pleading guilty to the 2019 charge, Wayne met with Trump. “Just had a great meeting with [Trump],” tweeted Wayne, along with a picture of him standing next to Trump. “[B]esides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured me he will and can get it done.” The meeting resulted in a huge public backlash from fans and peers alike.

“What have I …what have I….what have I done to deserve this?” tweeted Questlove. “oh no. WAYNE, I WOULD HAVE NEVER TOOK THIS PICTURE,” added 50 Cent. 50 Cent would also tease Wayne in Nov. 2020, tweeting, “Wait a minute, Trump still got 63 days left, call him Wayne. Get that fool on the phone.”

Wayne’s support of Trump seemingly cost him his relationship with Denise Bidot. Shortly after Wayne posed with Donald, the rapper and Denise unfollowed each other on Instagram, sparking rumors of a breakup. Denise shut down the first wave of split speculation by revealing she and Wayne spend Thanksgiving 2020 together. However, at the start of 2021, speculation started back up again after fans noticed that they both stopped following each other again.

What do you think of the platinum plan? @bradfordcohen sent it to me and I read it ,this is what the community needs…. more ownership. That plan is right! I want to help with justice reform when I am out as well. @realDonaldTrump #justicereform #prisonreform

— Kodak Black (@KodakBlack1k) October 26, 2020

Like Lil Wayne, Kodak also showed his support for the POTUS ahead of the Nov. 2020 election. The “Tunnel Vision” rapper revealed that he was a fan of Trump’s Platinum Plan, which was designed to help Black Americans over the next four years. “What do you think of the platinum plan? @bradfordcohen sent it to me and I read it ,this is what the community needs…. more ownership. That plan is right! I want to help with justice reform when I am out as well. @realDonaldTrump #justicereform #prisonreform.”

Kodak also made a promise to donate to charity if he received a pardon, according to a now-deleted tweet that Revolt shared: “If The President Them Free Me, I’m Gonna Spend 1 million on Charity within The First Year I’m Out. That’s on Everything.” During his time in prison, Kodak also organized a charity Christmas toy drive for children in Dec. 2020.

Watch the hands, Michael B. Jordan. The ‘Black Panther’ star snuggled up tightly with new love Lori Harvey in a selfie, and from where he was holding her, no wonder Michael had a huge grin on his face!

“He love it here,” Lori Harvey captioned the photo she posted to her Instagram Story on Jan. 19. In the bathroom mirror-selfie, Michael B. Jordan leans in over Lori’s ear as he snuggles up close. It’s not completely innocent because one of his hands can be seen resting underneath her bustline. Clearly, Michael, 33, is a fan of Lori’s green dress, with its deep cleavage. To be fair, Lori, 24, didn’t seem too upset with getting felt up by the Creed actor because her smile was just as bright and wide as his. It seems Michael isn’t the only one who “loves” this new love.

Esse casal 🥺❤

Rumors of a romance between Michael and Lori began shortly after she split from Future in August 2020. That speculation reached critical hype when they were spotted in Lori’s hometown of Atlanta right before Thanksgiving. After a New Year’s Eve ski trip, the two finally confirmed their rumored relationship on Jan. 10 with some Instagram PDA. Lori posted a pair of Polaroids of her with the actor. One of the shots was of him planting a kiss on her cheek.

Since going public with the romance, Lori and Michael have enjoyed life as a normal Hollywood couple. When Steve Harvey’s daughter celebrated her 24th birthday on Jan. 13, Michael left a flirty remark (“Gimmie!! Sheeesh!! Happy Birthday Turtle!!”) on her Instagram photo. This was literally the tip of the Birthday cake. Michael celebrated her birthday at her parents’ lavish birthday home in Atlanta. That was a “really important” gesture to Lori, a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “She definitely sees their relationship going somewhere,” and she “couldn’t have imagined spending her birthday without him by her side.”

Though things are good – nearly-inappropriate-selfie good – between Lori and Michael, no one should expect an engagement ring this year, an insider told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. However, it’s not completely off the books. “Things are really positive between them both, and they have a really deep connection,” the source said. It might be good to appreciate this mirror selfie while we can because the insider added that Michael would “like more privacy” when it comes to this relationship. Despite that, the source says that “to say it’s going well would be a drastic understatement.”
