Adele Cried During FaceTime Calls With Fans After Canceling Her Las Vegas Shows

Adele wasn’t going to leave fans empty-handed after being forced to postpone her Las Vegas residency last minute.

“She messaged me and it’s my singing Instagram. So I was like, ‘What? This can’t be real. This is a forwarded thing from her team,’” TikTok user @JamesMasonFox thought when he received a personal DM from Adele suggesting he visit her store at Caesars Palace for a gift. “I said, ‘is this really mama Adele or her team?’” 

That’s when he plays a voice note from the “Easy on Me” singer, saying, “Yes, it is, it’s me!”

It turns out, he was in for more than just a gift bag and a voice memo. The fans who purchased tickets to her postponed shows and had already made the trip to Las Vegas were treated to a FaceTime call with the singer when they arrived at the store. In a follow-up TikTok video from Fox, Adele can be seen crying over FaceTime as he and other fans shout, “It’s okay!”

“I’m still shaking,” Fox captioned the TikTok, in which he also wrote the message, “I just got to FaceTime with Adele…best trip ever!”

Another TikTok user, @ElenisaBracos, recently went viral for her story about multiple failed attempts to see Adele, starting with the time she was scammed by fake Craigslist tickets before buying real tickets to see Adele in London only for the show to be canceled. This time, her brother purchased tickets to Adele’s Las Vegas residency. Unfortunately, Adele canceled Weekends With Adele just a day ahead of the first show due to COVID-related issues. The video, titled “Adele Has Cancelled Every Show I’ve Tried to Go To” has 9.5 million views.

Luckily for Bracos, the story has a happy update. “I love you, Adele,” she told the singer over FaceTime, showing off the shirts she made for her favorite artist and her son. That’s when Adele promised to meet her fan in person when the shows are rescheduled.

This was clearly an emotional, cathartic experience for Adele and her fans. On January 20, the singer teared up when she announced the cancelations. “I’m so sorry, but my show ain’t ready,” Adele said. “We’ve tried absolutely everything we can to put it together in time and for it to be good enough for you, but we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID.”

She continued, “I can’t give you what I have right now, and I’m gutted,” Adele said. “I’m gutted, and I’m sorry it’s so last-minute. We’ve been awake for over 30 hours now trying to figure it out and we’ve run out of time. I’m so upset, and I’m really embarrassed, and I’m so sorry to everyone that’s traveled.”

Emily in Paris Star Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu Stuns in a See-Through Emerald Dress

Emily in Paris fans, take note: The former matriarch of Savoir just stole the show at Paris Fashion Week. Really, are you even surprised?

On January 19, Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu, who plays the iconic marketing executive Sylvie Grateau in the popular Netflix series, attended the Ami Fall 2022 show wearing a sheer emerald midi dress that fit the actor like a second skin. The 58-year-old paired the sultry, see-through look with a classic red manicure, a long black coat, silver sandals, and a single statement diamond earring. 

Basically, she was the epitome of cool—just like the character she plays on Emily in Paris. Check out the look for yourself:

Just like the character she plays on Emily in Paris, Leroy-Beaulieu is unafraid of aging, which she recently discussed in Glamour’s Drop the Routine column.  “A world where people cannot age is a dangerous world,” she told west coast editor Jessica Radloff. “I had a talk with my daughter who’s 30 about this recently. She said, ‘Mom, I don’t want to live in a world where women cannot age.’ I think it’s important to really own this aging thing and not make it a problem, not make it something we can’t talk about. There’s no guilt or shame around aging. This is something that happens to everybody, you know?”

She continues, “I understand the insecurity, the pressure that we get, especially in our business. But if somebody doesn’t start saying, ‘This is my age, and this is who I am, my wrinkles are my wrinkles, I own my wrinkles, this is my whole life…’ it’s kind of sad. Aging gracefully is being a kinder person than you were when you were younger, because life kind of polishes you. And having a better understanding of how people feel, who people are, and having more compassion and less competition with everybody else.”

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s Friends Reportedly Think He’s Going to Propose

January 2004: Less than three months later, the wedding is off. The couple confirm their split with separate statements.

Lopez’s rep releases the following statement, per People: “Jennifer Lopez has ended her engagement to Ben Affleck. At this difficult time, we ask that you respect her privacy.”

Meanwhile, Affleck’s rep adds, “I am not going to confirm anything about his personal life. We don’t want to get dragged into quicksand. Everybody wants a war. It’s not happening from our side.”

April 2021: Affleck and Lopez stay friendly (at least in recent years). He praises her work ethic to InStyle: “She has great talent, but she has also worked very hard for her success, and I’m so happy for her that she seems, at long last, to be getting the credit she deserves.”

Affleck visits Lopez at her Los Angeles home on April 30, a source tells People. “They are friends. They have always been friends and they have seen each other through the years,” another source says. 

But TMZ alleges their reunion began before Lopez and ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez’s recent breakup. Insiders tell the outlet Lopez and Affleck were emailing each other regularly, starting in early February, when she was filming Shotgun Wedding in the Dominican Republic. Allegedly, Affleck’s emails were “loving” and showed “longing” for Lopez. 

May 10, 2021: Lopez and Affleck reportedly take a trip together to Montana and are spotted at a resort near Big Sky.

“She had a great time with Ben,” a source tells People about the Montana trip. “She is happy with him and enjoys spending time with him.” A separate insider reveals to People, “[Jennifer] spent several days with Ben out of town. They have a strong connection. It’s all been quick and intense, but Jennifer is happy.”

Meanwhile, a source tells E! Online, “She wants to give it a shot with Ben. They never really had closure and she has always wondered what could have been. The timing was never right and they were in different places until now.”

A source told People for a May 14 article, “[Jennifer] is in touch with Ben every day. They are making plans to see each other. Jennifer is still very excited about how things are going with Ben.”

May 21, 2021: A source tells Us Weekly that they have reunited in person in Los Angeles since their trip to Montana.

May 25, 2021: A source tells Entertainment Tonight the two are now in Miami together: “[Jennifer] has been telling her friends nice things about Ben, and they’re having a lot of fun together…. They feel very comfortable with each other, but are also completely smitten, and it still feels like having a new crush after all these years.” Aww!

June 8, 2021: Lopez is allegedly moving back to L.A. for a “fresh start” with Affleck, E! News reports. A source says that she’s “packing up her Miami rental” and leaving the city where she lived with ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez. “She will be between L.A. and the Hamptons this summer, but L.A. will be her base,” the insider says. Her twins, Emme and Max, will join her, and Lopez is reportedly already looking at schools for them to attend in the fall.

Nick Jonas’s Reaction to Priyanka Chopra’s Roast ‘Makes More Sense’ After Baby Announcement

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas may not have announced their plans to expand their family, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t hints.

On January 21, the couple, who have been married since 2018, shared some happy news on Instagram. “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate,” Chopra wrote. “We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family.” Jonas shared the same message on his own account.

While this may have come as a complete surprise to fans, one TikTok user couldn’t help but remember one moment from the Jonas Brothers Family Roast, which they claim makes a lot more sense in retrospect. 

In the video clip shared by @nayleamunguia, Chopra is in the middle of making a joke about the Jonas family dynamics, when her delivery seemingly catches all three brothers by surprise. “When I first saw it, their reactions didn’t really make any sense to me,” Munguia says. “But now that, obviously, they had a surrogate and no one knew, it just makes more sense—their faces when she makes this joke.”

When the TikTok user hits play on the Netflix special, Chopra says, “We’re the only couple who doesn’t have kids yet. Which is why I’m excited to make this announcement. Nick and I are expecting….” 

Throughout Chopra’s bit, Munguia pauses on each brothers’ nervous face as they likely believe she’s about to spill the big secret. See for yourself:

“Kevin kills me and then just like, Joe and Nick, they’re just like, ‘What is about to happen?’” Munguia narrates. “But yeah, I guess it all makes more sense now.”

Of course, Priyanka Chopra did not use that moment to reveal that she and Nick Jonas were preparing to welcome their first child via surrogate. Here’s the full joke from Jonas Brothers Family Roast

Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund Reportedly Split a Year After Welcoming Their First Child

New year, new celebrity breakups. 

The year 2021 gave us plenty of new couples, including  Zoë Kravitz and Channing Tatum, who frolicked about New York City together and reportedly showed some major PDA at a Met gala after-party. It also marked the return of Bennifer, with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez rekindling their early 2000s romance (and they’re still going strong). 

There were some heartbreaking celebrity breakups in 2021 too, including Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes, Jennifer Lopez and A-Rod, and Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas (we have come so far in just a year). 

And 2022, sadly, will no doubt follow suit. Below, see the biggest celebrity breakups from this year. 

Cuup Is Having a Rare Sale on Its Best-Selling Minimalist Lingerie

How was the virtual fitting experience? How does it compare to an in-person fitting? Good vibes only! Nearly every in-person fitting I’ve had so far has been rushed and weirdly formal—and though I was definitely shy at first, Tania, the fitting expert, was kind, patient, and reassuring. She gave detailed instructions on how to measure my bust and band with a string and ruler (definitely not ideal, IMO, but she made it work!).

What was your recommended size? Was it different from what you usually get? Tania recommended a 32B and 32C. I typically wear a 32B—which I found out last year in an in-person bra fitting actually—so for her to recommend a cup size bigger was low-key giving me an identity crisis because I never thought of myself as someone with a C-cup. I decided to order both sizes because I was curious to see which would fit me better.

What bras and undies did you order? 
I want my lingerie to make me feel excited and put-together, so I ordered two matching sets: The Balconette and The Plunge in Citrine and Leopard. The more sensible choice would’ve probably been to get something darker, like the mossy green or the rich chocolate brown. But yellow is my happy color, so here we are. Leopard print is also my kind of neutral, and I had made up my mind before the fitting that the leopard print set had to be mine. I picked matching bottoms in two different styles—The Bikini and The Highwaist. I hardly ever wear granny panties, but I was curious to venture into new territory.

What are your thoughts on the bras’ fit, quality, and design? You know the feeling when everything falls into place? That’s how I felt trying on the bras. The 32B fits perfectly—the shoulder straps don’t dig, the cups are just large enough, and the band is perfect for my petite frame. The 32C, as anticipated, runs looser, but not so much that it warrants a return. It’s great for days when my breasts feel heavier and need more support. Design-wise, I’m obsessed with the two bras I chose. I’ve never been a T-shirt-bra kind of girl to begin with, and Cuup’s mesh styles tick off everything I look for in an everyday bra: lightweight support, comfort, and a touch of playfulness. I can’t believe I’m actually saying this, but they fit so great that I’ve actually been enjoying wearing bras again. 

Would you do a virtual bra fitting again? I would—and next time I’d make sure to have tailor’s tape on me!
 

What Happens to Women Who Are Denied Abortion? Here Are the Stats.

The next time that you’re in an argument about abortion rights, tell whoever you’re talking to that there’s no need to get emotional. They can simply read the facts.

The claim: Women who have abortions will regret them.

The finding from the Turnaway Study: Over 95% of women who had abortions told researchers both immediately and five years later that they had made the right decisions. These reports were similar in women who had later abortions and women who had abortions in the first trimester. “We find no evidence that abortion causes negative mental health or well-being outcomes,” the Turnaway Study reports. “However, we do find that being denied an abortion is associated with elevated levels of anxiety, stress, and lower self-esteem, soon after abortion denial.” These mental health concerns decreased over six months to a year, researchers found.

The claim: For women who are denied abortions, everything will work out in the end.

The finding from the Turnaway Study: Women who were denied abortions were four times more likely to have a household income below the poverty line. They were three times more likely to be unemployed. They were also more likely to be unable to afford household needs including food. They were also more likely to stay in touch with violent partners.

The claim: Women who have abortions are selfish—they don’t care about children.

The finding from the Turnaway Study: In fact, Greene Foster says, one of the main reasons women gave for seeking abortions was that “they want to take care of their existing children.” Plus, the study found that children of women who had abortions recieve “more economic security and better maternal bonding” than the other group. Nearly 60% of women who seek abortions already have children.

The claim: Women who have abortions give up the chance to become parents.

The finding from the Turnaway Study: “Women who receive an abortion are more likely to have an intended pregnancy within the next five years compared to women who are denied,” the study found.

The claim: There is no health risk to being forced to carry a pregnancy to term.

The finding from the Turnaway Study: Women who were denied abortions reported more chronic pain and worse overall health. Two women who were turned away and gave birth died of pregnancy-related causes.

The claim: People who are turned away shouldn’t have waited so long to get an abortion.

The finding from the Turnaway Study: “The gestational bans seem to be passed with this idea that people are sitting around wasting time instead of getting an abortion and that is not true,” says Greene Foster. People don’t realize, she says, “how much not having money slows you down from being able to get an abortion, find a clinic, pay for it, get to the clinic, stay over night sometimes, buy childcare, get out of work.”

The claim: Women should know right away when they’re pregnant.

The finding from the Turnaway Study: Many women do not know they’re pregnant, Greene Foster pointed out, because they already have irregular periods, or because they don’t have pregnancy symptoms. The study found, she said, that “Statistically, the things that slow people down [from realizing that they’re pregnant] are being young, so they’ve never been pregnant before, and having been on birth control—if you think that you’re protected from the risk of pregnancy then you’re slower to realize that in fact you are pregnant.”

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Have Welcomed Their First Baby

The first secret baby news of 2022 is here! Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have welcomed their first child via surrogate after keeping their plans completely secret.

On January 21, the couple, who have been married since 2018, announced the happy news on Instagram. “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate,” Chopra wrote. “We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family.”

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ relationship kicked off in 2017 after the pair attended the Met gala together and set off a firestorm of dating rumors. “Yeah, we were on the same table and we already know each other,” Chopra told Jimmy Kimmel at the time. “So he was like, ‘Hey, you wanna go [to the Met gala] together?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, okay, let’s go together.’ It ended up working out.” Jonas also denied they were together, telling a radio station, “I’m single. She and I knew each other from before.”

The pair were officially dating by May 2018—almost exactly one year later—and engaged by August 2018. That December, the couple tied the knot in Jodhpur, India, where they hosted two ceremonies—one Hindu and one Christian—over the course of five days. 

Recently, Chopra took part in a good old-fashioned roast of her husband for their Netflix special, Jonas Brothers Family Roast, and pretty much went in for the kill. “Nick and I have a 10-year age gap, we do,” she began, per People. “And there are many ’90s pop culture references he doesn’t understand, and I have to explain them to him…He teaches me how to use TikTok, for example, and I teach him what a successful acting career looks like.”
