Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich Have Reportedly Split

Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich have reportedly split, sources tell People

“It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers,” a source tells the publication. “They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together.”

It’s been a whirlwind relationship. The couple only started dating a few months ago and announced their engagement over the summer. 

“When I was a little girl, my birth dad always called me his ‘little partner’ – something that might’ve sounded strange without his southern cowboy like accent,” Lovato originally wrote about the couple’s engagement. “To me it made perfect sense. And today that word makes perfect sense again but today I’m officially going to be someone else’s partner.

She continued, “@maxehrich – I knew I loved you the moment I met you.
It was something I can’t describe to anyone who hasn’t experienced it firsthand but luckily you did too.. I’ve never felt so unconditionally loved by someone in my life (other than my parents) flaws and all. You never pressure me to be anything other than myself. And you make me want to be the best version of myself. I’m honored to accept your hand in marriage. I love you more than a caption could express but I’m ecstatic to start a family and life with you. I love you forever my baby. My partner. Here’s to our future!!!!”

The couple faced some bumps along the way, namely when alleged old tweets Ehrich wrote about Selena Gomez surfaced. Demi Lovato slammed the tweets at the time, dubbing them “fake.”

“It’s really sad when people FAKE images to put women against each other,” she wrote on Instagram Stories. “If women have conflict that’s between them NOT YOU.”

This story is still developing. We’ll update this post with more information.

There are other standout celebs, like Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, who never disappoint. Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, meanwhile, are starting to become perennial favorites. (Their Gomez and Morticia Addams look? Incredible!)

Whatever the celebrity Halloween costume idea, stars are always taking their spooky themes to new heights. Here are the most epic (and in some cases, most over-the-top) celebrity Halloween costumes of all time. We can’t wait to see what celebrity Halloween costumes hit our Instagram feeds this year.

Rare Beauty Review: We Tried Selena Gomez’s Beauty Line on 3 Skin Tones

The one place the collection personally lost me was the lip products. I’m not a fan of liquid lipsticks, so even though the Lip Souffles were way less drying than most I’ve used, I’m just never going to reach for one over my usual bullet. I’m also not a huge fan of the shades I tried, but I think this red probably looks gorgeous across all skin tones. The dewy balms are more like sheeny lipsticks—really, I’d only classify the clear one as a balm. I find the coverage a bit patchy if I haven’t properly exfoliated my lips, but the shades are gorgeous. 

Overall, I love the packaging and the vibe, and the giant doe-foot applicators across the brand makes application a breeze. The foundation has quickly become my must-have, and I’m super excited to see what Selena has up her sleeve for the next release.

The positive message behind each product and how accessible the line is makes Rare Beauty a welcomed addition to my quarantine stash. My favorite product in this launch is the Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in Love. The matte terra-cotta color adds a nice touch of warmth to my face, that makes me look sun-kissed, even without bronzer. 

In the morning, I’ve already become accustomed to using the With Gratitude Dewy Lip Balm in Honor, which is just a classic clear shade. The texture of it is light and pillowy enough that my lips feel moisturized for hours. I also like that the bullet is small and compact with a flat bottom, so that I can place it anywhere without it rolling away.

Last and certainly not least is the Positive Light Liquid Luminizer in Transcend. This rose gold highlighter looks great under and on top of my makeup, which is somewhat rare for highlighter. It also doesn’t rub off on my mask, which is a huge plus.

I’ve put on a full face of makeup maybe twice in the past seven months, so for this, I decided to go all in and have fun. I started out by flipping through the booklet of brand imagery and loved the bold hues and that it embraces originality. 

I cleansed and moisturized my face, and started by applying foundation. I liked that it wasn’t too thick or greasy and went on smooth without noticeable creasing. It feels pretty lightweight but buildable–so you can definitely even your skin tone without it feeling caked on (which is ideal for me since I prefer a natural look). The only issue I had is when it says “shake well” on the foundation bottle, it means shake really well—I missed that step and a bunch of liquid came pouring out into my sink. Make sure you shake to blend! The concealer instantly brightened my under-eye area and added slight luminosity, so I didn’t end up looking like a ghost—but it did crease after a few minutes. 

The blush colors are so fun and different. From a deep burgundy to a bright coral, there are several directions you can go with it, and I chose the latter for fall vibes. The formula is super pigmented, so a little goes a long way. It might be a tad liquidy for my taste, but it’s still great in terms of application and texture. I wanted to nod at fun ’80s beauty looks but ended up going way overboard with the blush at first, so I muted it with more concealer and decided to keep it matte instead of adding highlighter. But I did add a pop of the liquid luminizer to my brow bones and cupids bow for more dimension. 

The blush is pretty good, but the star of the line for me is the eyeliner for sure. That tip is so thin and easy to use that even a makeup novice can master a bomb cat eye, and when I washed my face, it barely budged. Lastly, I played around with the liquid matte lipsticks and went with the deeper hue for a touch of vamp. Again, super pigmented, so I went easy and blotted with my finger because I wanted a blurred look—but I have a feeling it would perform great for a true statement matte lip.

Selena Gomez Proudly Showed Off Her Kidney Transplant Scar in a Swimsuit Pic

Selena Gomez is done hiding her kidney transplant surgery scar

On September 24, the Rare Beauty mogul posted a bathing suit pic on Instagram proudly showing the scar and wrote about her progress with self-acceptance. “When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar,” she revealed in the caption. “I didn’t want it to be in photos, so I wore things that would cover it up.”

She continued, “Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through…and I’m proud of that. T – Congratulations on what you’re doing for women, launching @lamariette whose message is just that…all bodies are beautiful.”

In the photo, Gomez is wearing a blue La’Mariette swimsuit by Theresa Marie Mingus. The suit is $120 and comes in sizes XS-XXL. 

Back in 2017, Selena Gomez  underwent a kidney transplant following complications from lupus. Her donor? Best friend and actor, Francia Raisa

“I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering,” she explained back in September 2017.  “It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. ” 

You probably remember the iconic photo:

“And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa,” Gomez continued. “She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis.”

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Showed the World—You Don’t Mess with a Grandma

And in that same interview, Ginsburg responded to a question about how her Jewish roots may have influenced her career. “I grew up in the shadow of World War II,” she said. “And we came to know more and more what was happening to the Jews in Europe. The sense of being an outsider—of being one of the people who had suffered oppression for no…sensible reason…. It makes you more empathetic to other people who are not insiders, who are outsiders.”

I’m not Jewish, but I don’t have to be to recoil at the effrontery of anyone who felt entitled to tell the daughter of Celia and Nathan Bader—the woman who stood up for outsiders, who dissented on their behalf, who magnified their voices—that her usefulness had come to an end.

In her last days, Ginsburg dictated her final ambition to her granddaughter, Clara Spera: “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

In her way, even at the end, she was working. This is not surprising. She loved her job, and her country. She was also a grandmother, and, like most grandmothers, she must have experienced the emboldening nature of this role. Just when we’re expected to settle down and disappear into the shadows, we fall in love again. We want a better world for our grandchildren, and it drives us to be bold. 

When Elle profiled Ginsburg in 2014, writer Jessica Weisberg noted that Ginsburg’s chambers were decorated with photos of her with President Obama, Condoleezza Rice, and other notable politicians. There were also, Weisberg wrote, photos of her with her husband, Martin, who died in 2010, and with her children and grandchildren. In one pile, a stack of Harvard Law Review issues sat next to “an elaborate, custom-made bobblehead doll of the justice herself.”

There’s that flame again.

Barely 48 hours after Ginsburg’s death, Donald Trump attempted to cast Spera as a liar, on the only major network willing to broadcast his braying unchecked.

“I don’t know that she said that, or if that was written out by Adam Schiff, and Schumer and Pelosi,” Trump told Fox and Friends. “That came out of the wind. It sounds so beautiful, but that sounds like a Schumer deal, or maybe Pelosi or Shifty Schiff.”

This disrespects Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her granddaughter, of course, and it is as revealing as it is predictable. This President of the United States does not understand why anyone would ever put country first, let alone in her last hours on this earth. His attempt to call her granddaughter a liar reflects only the view in his own mirror. He sees who he wants to see, and his focus never changes.

I met Ginsburg only once, in 2007 at a Supreme Court dinner for newly elected senators. She was with her husband, and I was with mine, Sen. Sherrod Brown. After another senator’s quick introduction that included only my first name, she touched my sleeve and said, “Your last name?”

“Schultz,” I said.

“Yes,” she said, and she smiled. In Justice Ginsburg’s orbit, no woman was just a wife, even in Washington.

So, how do we honor this giant spirit of a woman now that she is gone? How do we grieve when political pundits have already moved on to the matter of who will take her place?

This morning, I reread John O’Donohue’s blessing, For Equilibrium. These two lines stood out:

As water takes whatever shape it is in,
So free may you be about who you become.

In this time of loss upon loss, we choose who we will be. Ginsburg’s reputation grew because of how she formulated her dissenting opinions, when she was outnumbered. Her writings were not ventings; they were guideposts. When you write a dissent,” she said, “you’re writing for a future court that will see the error into which your colleagues have fallen.”

Our view of the future is obstructed right now, and some days the vista looks bleak, indeed. Alone, we can surrender to our despair. Together, we can be someone else. Change is always in opposition to the status quo. Every day we decide to try again, we pave more road. One dissent at a time, we are carving out more clearing.

“Appealing to the intelligence of a future day,” as Ruth Bader Ginsburg used to say.

‘The Haunting of Hill House’ Season Two on Netflix: Everything to Know About ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’

The first season of Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House was both terrifying and gut-wrenchingly emotional—a perfect combination to draw in viewers. The series, loosely based on the 1959 novel by Shirley Jackson, told the story of the Crain family across two different timelines as we tried to figure out how the ghosts (both literal and figurative) of their past may have caused the traumas of their present.

Though The Haunting of Hill House was a big hit, the story was largely wrapped up by the final episode. That isn’t stopping Netflix: The streaming service announced in 2019 that there would be a second season. Well, sort of. Instead of revisiting the Crains and the ghosts of Hill House, the second season will become an installment in an anthology the service is calling The Haunting. That means season two will have a totally new story, setting, and characters. In other words, say goodbye to the Bent-Neck Lady and hello to some some as-yet-unseen ghost or creature to haunt our dreams.

If the whispers in the first teaser trailer are any indication, we’re in for another creepy ride:

Here’s everything we know so far about the new season.

The release date. October 9. Netflix confirmed the date in late August. 

The house. While we don’t yet have much information about what lies inside, we do know that the Bly Manor is the new Hill House. According to Entertainment Weekly, The Haunting of Bly Manor follows the story of “an American nanny who becomes the new au pair to two orphaned children (played by Amelie Bea Smith and Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) in 1980s England. The kids need a new caretaker because their previous one (Tahirah Sharif) tragically died on the grounds of their family manor in the town of Bly.”

The inspiration. The new season will be based on the works of Henry James. Bly Manor is the location of his novel The Turn of the Screw.

The cast and crew. First of all, Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy will be developing and producing this new chapter. “Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy are masterful at creating authentically frightening stories that leave audiences on the edge of their seats but unable to look away,” Cindy Holland, vice president of original content at Netflix, said in a statement. “We’re excited to continue our partnership with them on the Haunting series and future projects to come.”

As for the cast, Victoria Pedretti will be back in a brand-new role—this time as a governess named Dani—along with many other original castmates. 

Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas, Kate Siegel, Catherine Parker, and Amelia Eve are also set to return.

As for some new blood, make sure to look out for iZombie’s Rahul Kohli in this new season, per Deadline

The first look is here. On August 24, Netflix released the first round of images on Facebook and Twitter, including this really creepy poster:

Warning: There are creepy dolls and creepy children involved.

The first trailer. You’ve already seen a teaser, but it gets creepier. 

How am I already terrified?

Trick-or-Treating During COVID Can Be Fun and Safe if You Follow Some Guidelines—Here’s How

Trick-or-treating during COVID will look different than it has in the past, but experts say it probably can still happen—as long as you are outside and following best practices for safety.

The first thing you should know is that the CDC currently defines traditional trick-or-treating, where kids go door-to-door and have treats handed to them, as one of the “higher-risk activities” associated with the celebration. (Other activities that require caution? Indoor haunted houses or crowded gatherings, like fall festivals.)   

“You have to realize the virus is still out there, even on the evening of October 31,” Robert Amler, M.D., Dean of the School of Health Sciences and Practice at New York Medical College and a former medical officer with the CDC, tells Glamour. “We take a holiday, but the virus does not.”

Halloween is still a few weeks away, but you should start thinking about it now, and be prepared to change your plans if infection rates dramatically rise in your area. William Lang, M.D., a former White House doctor  and current Medical Director of WorldClinic, notes that trick-or-treating certainly isn’t an essential activity—but it can provide kids with a sense of normalcy. Plus, communities can’t really ban it, meaning the decision whether or not to go is up to you. 

“People who are at risk, or households that have at-risk members may want to choose not to participate this year,” Dr. Lang says. “Even though each individual interaction does not achieve the CDC risk threshold, many small interactions may slightly raise risk, so why take a chance?”

If you’re leaning towards scrapping the whole thing, Alexandra Fung, a parenting expert and CEO of Upparent, says that Halloween scavenger hunts in your home or yard paired with a fun, themed dinner can be just as festive. But if you do want to give trick-or-treating a go, here’s how medical experts say you can do that as safely as possible. 

Stay up-to-date on local guidance.

“Before taking your kids out on Halloween, check the rate of positive COVID-19 test results in your area,” says Aimee Ferraro, Ph.D., M.P.H, a faculty member at Walden University’s Master of Public Health program. “If the rate is under 5%, it would generally be safe to go trick-or-treating. Consider the steps public health officials are taking. For example, if your local school has closed because of a recent outbreak, it’s probably not a good idea to go out on Halloween.”

Follow “the 4 Ws.”

“The four W’s are: Wash your hands, wear your mask, watch your distance, and walk away from groups,” Dr. Amler says. “Don’t stay in large groups of people.” So, keep your celebration small, keep it outside, and try to keep the outing brief. Stay away from indoor Halloween parties or haunted houses, and doctors stress that keeping groups as small as possible will help make the experience safer. 

The CDC recommends that instead of going door-to-door, kids pick up individually wrapped gift bags at the end of a driveway or in a yard so and that families wait their turn to allow for social distancing.  

Make the holiday a family affair.

“[The virus] means not going out in large groups with friends, as your kids may have done in years past,” says Ariana Witkin, M.D., board-certified pediatrician and member of the American Academy of Pediatrics. “Instead, parents can try dressing up with the kids and going trick-or-treating as a whole family. Kids pick up on cues from the adults around them. If they see you are enjoying and participating in Halloween, they are more likely to go with the flow as well.”

Run a symptom check before heading out.  

Dr. Lang says that anyone with a fever, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, unexpected aches and pains, or upper respiratory symptoms needs to stay home, period. 

Keep interactions short.

“Data have shown that a quick interaction of less than 15 minutes is less likely to result in transmission,” explains Molly Hyde, M.H.S., C.I.C., and Infection Control Practitioner at Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC). “The good news regarding trick-or-treating is that most interactions are short, which means the risk of COVID-19 transmission is low when giving out or accepting candy. This doesn’t mean that you can ignore public health guidelines, though.”

Re-think how you’re handing out—and taking!—treats.

“Regarding how to keep yourself safe when handing out candy, there is no good way if kids get close to you,” explains Ingrid Yang, M.D., a hospitalist physician in San Diego, CA. “So if you still want to stand outside I’d recommend setting up  a table and keeping yourself six feet from the table. Be sure you are still wearing proper PPE. Handing out candy will be more of a ‘watch them grab a piece or a baggie from 6-plus feet away,’ but can still be very rewarding and fun.”

Lizzo Wants the World to Know Being Fat Is Normal

Whether she’s wanted to be or not, Lizzo has often found herself in the middle of conversations about weight and body positivity, and she’s never been afraid of coming for body shamers. But her thinking on the issue as a whole is, unsurprisingly, thoughtful and nuanced

“It’s commercialized. Now, you look at the hashtag ‘body positive,’ and you see smaller-framed girls, curvier girls. Lotta white girls. And I feel no ways about that, because inclusivity is what my message is always about,” Lizzo told Vogue magazine. (She’s the October cover star.) “I’m glad that this conversation is being included in the mainstream narrative. What I don’t like is how the people that this term was created for are not benefiting from it. Girls with back fat, girls with bellies that hang, girls with thighs that aren’t separated, that overlap. Girls with stretch marks. You know, girls who are in the 18-plus club. They need to be benefiting from…the mainstream effect of body positivity now. But with everything that goes mainstream, it gets changed. It gets—you know, it gets made acceptable.”

Lizzo added, “I think it’s lazy for me to just say I’m body positive at this point. It’s easy. I would like to be body-normative. I want to normalize my body. And not just be like, ‘Ooh, look at this cool movement. Being fat is body positive.’ No, being fat is normal. I think now, I owe it to the people who started this to not just stop here. We have to make people uncomfortable again, so that we can continue to change. Change is always uncomfortable, right?”

She also spoke out about racial injustice, the Black Lives Matter movement, and being Black in America. “My dad taught me very early on about what being Black in this country is. When I learned about Emmett Till, I was so young. And I have never forgotten his face,” Lizzo said. “They don’t actually care. And ‘they’—I don’t know who ‘they’ are. But I know that they don’t care, because if shit like this is still happening, there has to be a ‘they.’ They don’t care about somebody’s actual life.” 

Lizzo is also hopeful about what it would mean to see Kamala Harris as the vice president.

“Having a Black woman as vice president would be great because I’m just always rooting for Black people,” she said. “But I want actual change to happen…in the laws. And not just on the outside, you know? Not a temporary fix to a deep-rooted, systemic issue. A lot of times I feel like we get distracted by the veneer of things. If things appear to be better, but they’re not actually better, we lose our sense of protest.”

Amen to all of that. Read Lizzo’s full interview with Vogue here.
