Gigi Hadid’s Latest Photos with Her ‘Bestie’ Baby Daughter Are So Sweet

Gigi Hadid has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season. 

In September she and Zayn Malik welcomed their first daughter together, and while we still don’t know her name, the couple seems to be happily settling into their lives as new parents—even if they are extremely tired. 

On November 22, Hadid posted new photos of her and her little girl, and this is exactly the kind of adorable content we need right now. The supermodel also shared a sneak peek of her holiday decorations, which she put up early for a very good reason. “A whole new kind of busy & tired 😅❤️ but she’s da bestie so she got Christmas decorations early 🥰🥰🎁,” she wrote in the caption. In the first photo, you can see baby girl Hadid-Malik snuggled to her mom’s chest asleep. And if you click through the carousel, there’s another sweet shot of Hadid kissing the top of her little head. Click here to see them. 

While they’ve certainly been busy with a newborn in the house, the couple hasn’t appeared to miss any major holidays, even sharing their first family photo for Halloween. (Though much like these new shots, they have yet to show the baby’s face.) 

“Gigi and Zayn can’t get enough of their little girl,” a source told Us Weekly in October. “Things are going really swimmingly between them and they’re both so happy. Gigi is so excited to be a new mom and has been appreciating every moment.”

Gigi Hadid was also vocal during election season, publicly supporting Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. “I voted absentee last week with my daughter next to me, for an America I want her to see; but not just for us- for fellow Americans that are less privileged, with hope for a nation that is unified, that is empathetic, & for a leader that is compassionate,” she wrote on Instagram. 

Could a family holiday card photo be far behind? We hope not. 

Jonathan Groff: What To Watch Streaming If You Like The Hamilton Star

The Normal Heart – HBO Max

The Normal Heart is an HBO Original movie about gay men during the 1980s and the HIV-AIDS crisis. Mark Ruffalo is the main character, Ned Weeks.

Ryan Murphy directed The Normal Heart and the cast includes Julia Roberts, Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parson, Matt Bomer, and Jonathan Groff.

Groff plays Craig, Bruce (Taylor Kitsch)’s boyfriend and a close friend of Ned. Groff’s part is small but a vital one in it helps set up the high stakes and severity of these men’s situation. The Normal Heart is a powerful film that leaves you devastated and angry, mainly due to the cast’s moving performances, and because of the movie’s real-life inspirations.

The Runner-Ups

Of all the races, The Human Torch race was most definitely the closest, and considering the talent that was nominated, it’s not surprising. Between Moonlight, When They See Us and Mr. Mercedes, Jharrel Jerome has shown some tremendous acting chops. Given his star power, Zac Efron is inevitably going to get a superhero role, it’s only a matter of time. Between Kingsman, Eddie The Eagle and Rocketman, Taron Egerton has become one of the industry’s go-to young stars. And Riz Ahmed, has just continually impressed us more and more with each performance, starring in movies like Four Lions, Nightcrawler, The Sisters Brothers, and Sound Of Metal. But they all ranked behind our top pick for the part.

Jennifer Lopez’s 2020 AMAs Performance Was So Sexy, It Allegedly Had Censors on Edge

The AMAs 2020 ceremony went down on Sunday, November 22, and it featured a slew of show-stopping performances. Megan Thee Stallion! Katy Perry! BTS! 

But one of the highlights of the evening was Jennifer Lopez and Maluma, who performed their duet “Pa’ Ti + Lonely” live for the first time. (The song is on the soundtrack for their upcoming movie, Marry Me.) It was a spellbinding performance,  filled with choreography, trippy lights, and sweaty chemistry between Lopez and Maluma. It was so sweaty, in fact, that ABC censors were allegedly “freaking out” over it before showtime, according to Page Six.  (They were also reportedly pressed over Megan Thee Stallion’s performance, which was iconic.) 

But what was there to freak out about? The raised eyebrows over this performance remind me so much of how folks freaked out about Lopez and Shakira’s 2020 Super Bowl halftime show. There was nothing in it that was more or less suggestive than what male performers have done for years. They just caught flak because they’re female entertainers. It’s messed up. 

I, for one, thought Lopez and Maluma’s performance was incredible. Am I still sweating? Yes. But in the best way possible. 

Check out some pics from the performance, below. I’m obsessed.

Jennifer Lopez and Maluma weren’t nominated for anything at the AMAs 2020, but they have my vote for Best Performance. And in 2021, they’ll have my vote for Best Picture when their film Marry Me premieres. Co-starring Owen Wilson, the movie centers on a pop star who learns her rock star partner is having an affair behind her back, so she proposes to a random fan holding a “Marry Me” sign at her concert. It’s set to come out May 14, 2021. Fingers crossed we’ll be able to experience that in a rowdy, crowded movie theater. 

Read Every Line of Megan Thee Stallion’s Powerful Body Positivity Speech From the 2020 AMAs

Megan Thee Stallion gave her first-ever performance of “Body” at the AMAs 2020, and she slayed it, of course. Before she took the stage, a pre-recorded speech the rapper made about body positivity played, and it was powerful. 

“I love my body,” Megan said. “Every curve. Every inch. Every mark. Every dimple. It’s decoration on my temple. My body is mine, and nobody owns it but me. And who I choose to let in is so lucky. You may not think my body is perfect, and it probably never will be. But when I look in the mirror, I love what I see. So are you ready?” 

Say it louder for the people in the back! Check out a GIF from the performance, below: 

Naturally, fans were living for her performance. “the way she ate and left no crumbs,” one person tweeted. Another added, “Wow I cannot believe I got to slay Megan the stallion and slayed tffff out of her. I’m about to cry.” 

Check out some more reactions, below: 

Megan Thee Stallion earned several nominations at the AMAs 2020: New Artist of the Year, Collaboration of the Year, Favorite Female Artist – Rap/Hip-Hop, and Favorite Song – Rap/Hip-Hop.

Her debut album, Good News, was released on Friday, November 20, and it’s received widespread critical acclaim. It currently has an astounding 93 on Metacritic. In its review of the album, The Guardian wrote, “Megan Thee Stallion’s talents are a moveable feast.” Meanwhile, Variety wrote, “Megan pulls off something tart, true, and real, while maintaining all that is best about her hard exterior.” 

Her song “Savage” has been one of the most successful of the year, reaching number four on the Billboard Hot 100. The remix featuring Beyoncé, which came out on April 29, also shot up to the top of the charts, reaching number one. 

Mel Gibson’s Fatman And 6 Other Unconventional Santa Claus Movies

Fatman (2020)

Mel Gibson as a weathered, R-rated Santa Claus protecting his life and livelihood from a vengeful mercenary (Walton Goggins) hired by a rich, not-at-all-nice 12-year-old boy (Chance Hurstfield) who wants him dead. That’s the type of logline where you’re either with it or you’re not. If you’re like me, you’re sold instantly. If you’re asking, say, logistical questions, you might want to hold off on these crudely entertaining festivities.

About as dry and bitter as an off-brand seasonal IPA, Fatman may be an acquired taste. But if you’re in the right jolly mood, it’ll bring lots of holiday cheer for the adults. Benefitted enormously by a talented ensemble committed wholly to playing this goofy premise straight, without too many cutesy or winking moments, this darkly amusing lark from Eshom and Ian Nelms is a peculiar delight, one that’s refreshingly refrained in its approach. While the tone’s uneven, some subplots involving the elves become short-sighted, the visuals are sometimes too drab, and it overstays its welcome a bit, Fatman is a rollicking good time from start-to-finish. It’s unsuspectedly sweet at times, too.

The Weeknd’s Face Was Completely Covered in Bandages at the AMAs—Here’s Why

The Weeknd accepted the first award of the night at the AMAs 2020 on Sunday, November 22. And he did it in a surprising look: His face was completely covered in bandages. 

Take a look for yourself, below, courtesy of a GIF that MTV posted: 

Before you worry, no, The Weeknd didn’t get into a fight or anything. He’s totally fine. The bruised and bandaged look is actually part of his current album era aesthetic—specifically for the song “Blinding Lights.” 

“‘Blinding Lights’ [is about] how you want to see someone at night, and you’re intoxicated, and you’re driving to this person and you’re just blinded by streetlights,” The Weeknd told Esquire about the song. “But nothing could stop you from trying to go see that person, because you’re so lonely. I don’t want to ever promote drunk driving, but that’s what the dark undertone is.”

This isn’t the first time The Weeknd has done this look. He looked similarly at the 2020 MTV VMAs, as well as Saturday Night Live earlier this year. The Weeknd’s album cover for After Hours also features him with a bloody face. 

The Weeknd is  one of the most nominated artists at the AMAs 2020, with eight nods: Artist of the Year, Favorite Music Video, Favorite Male Artist – Pop/Rock, Favorite Male Artist – Soul/R&B, Favorite Song – Pop/Rock, Favorite Album – Pop/Rock, Favorite Song – Soul/R&B, Favorite Album – Soul/R&B. 

After Hours, released in March 2020, was critically acclaimed and a commercial smash. “Blinding Lights” has been a consistent chart-topper all year. The Grammy nominations haven’t been announced yet, but my guess is he’ll be racking up quite a few. 

He’ll also be headlining the 2021 Super Bowl halftime show in February. That news was announced earlier this month. “performing on the iconic stage. see you 02/07/21 @pepsi #pepsihalftime,” the singer tweeted. 

All the Looks From the 2020 American Music Awards

The AMAs 2020 ceremony on Sunday, November 18 was very different from past years due to social distancing, but celebrities still turned out chic looks both on stage and on the red carpet. 

Though the American Music Awards red carpet was much quieter than usual, the fashion we saw on it certainly made a splash. Host Taraji P. Henson’s AMA outfit was stunning, of course, as were singers Dua Lipa and Jennifer Lopez. 

And there’s more AMA fashion where that came from. What was so great about the looks from tonight was that they rant the gamut. It seamlessly blended the Hollywood glamour of a show like the Grammys with the fun and eccentricity of the VMAs. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the best of the AMA red carpet 2020 looks for yourself, below.

The Funniest Superhero Movie Cameos (Not Counting Stan Lee)

Lynda Carter – Principal Powers (Sky High)

Calling Lynda Carter’s role in Sky High a cameo is honestly a bit of a reach, but she does make a pretty funny reference at one point to her years leading the Wonder Woman TV show in the late 1970s. Not to mention, she does get less screen time in the 2005 Disney flick as Principal Powers, head of the titular school for young superheroes in training, than her co-star Bruce Campbell, who essentially made his superhero character debut as Coach Boomer (a.k.a., Sonic Boom) despite a few earlier, small comic book movie appearances.

Watch Out Ryan Reynolds, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s The Latest Celebrity To Get An Alcohol Brand

A-list Hollywood actors make a great deal of money to star in movies — that’s not really a secret. Other than spending that money on nice cars and big houses, some actors hop into the investing game as well. Take Ryan Reynolds as a prime example. The Deadpool star has been well-known for purchasing a large stake in Aviation Gin. Now, it looks like he’s going to need to watch out, as Arnold Schwarzenegger and LeBron James are purchasing an alcohol brand of their own.
