Ana de Armas Chopped Her Hair Amid Ben Affleck Breakup Rumors

Did Ana de Armas get a breakup haircut?

Maybe so. The actor showed off a new bob with bangs during an interview on January 17 amid rumors she and Ben Affleck have split. 

Check out the cut for yourself, below.

YouTube

You can watch the interview here; de Armas shows up around the one hour, 24 minute-mark. 

Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck haven’t confirmed their breakup themselves, but People reported on it Monday, January 18. “Ben is no longer dating Ana,” a source told the outlet. “She broke it off. Their relationship was complicated. Ana doesn’t want to be Los Angeles based and Ben obviously has to since his kids live in Los Angeles.”

A second source said, “This is something that was mutual and something that is completely amicable. They are in different points in their lives; there is deep love and respect there. Ben continues to want to work on himself. He has three jobs lined up and he’s a solid father at home. They are both happy with where they are in their lives.”

The two were first linked together in March 2020 and have been paparazzi fodder ever since. Affleck recently opened up about the media attention his relationships receive, specifically his early-aughts one with Jennifer Lopez

“You know, there’s always a story of the month, and me dating Jennifer Lopez happened to be that tabloid story at the time when that business grew exponentially,” Affleck said on The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, per People. “Still, to this day, [some] will go, ‘I see you out there in the paparazzi and the pictures!’ It’s like, ‘Yes, I left my house and took out the trash. It’s not like I’m trying to—.’ And it’s still like, ‘You were taking a pap walk!’ As if, if you leave your house, you’re only doing so in the hope that you could be so lucky that you could end up as the sixth item in the Daily Mail. It’s absurd!”

Ashley Biden, Future First Daughter, Just Gave Her First-Ever TV Interview

Future first daughter Ashley Biden is opening up ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday, January 20. Inauguration Day is being heavily discussed because of its historic nature and because of President Donald Trump and Melania Trump‘s unprecedented actions. Ashley sat down with former first daughter Jenna Bush to discuss her thoughts on her dad’s upcoming term as President of the United States, and how she will not follow in current first daughter Ivanka Trump’s footsteps.

Ashley explained that although she’s spent years working as a social worker and public advocate, she isn’t planning to hold an official position in her father’s administration (Ivanka currently serves as Advisor to the President). “I will, however, hopefully, use this platform to advocate for social justice, for mental health, to be involved in community development and revitalization,” she said in the Today interview. “I do hope to bring awareness and education to some topics, subjects that are really important.”

President Trump already announced that he will not attend the president-elect’s inauguration. Melania Trump is also breaking protocol when it comes to meet with the new First Lady, Dr. Jill Biden. Ashley called it “unfortunate” but admitted that her family is “okay with it.”

Ashley Biden appeared alongside her nieces, Naomi, Finnegan, Maisy, and Natalie for part of the interview with Bush. She also spoke about her parents’ integrity and how she tried to shield herself from the media (also unlike the Trump family). “I know, you know, the type of man my father is, and the woman my mother is and the man my brother is,” she explained. “The cruelty and the meanness, that’s why I don’t have a social media account that’s public. Part of it is also having boundaries for myself, because I believe in kindness, and I believe in the humanity of all of us.”

27 Surprising Celebrity Couples You Never Knew Dated

For all the high-profile famous celebrity couples we’ve seen dominate our news feeds—see: Jay and Bey, Blake and Ryan, Britney and Justin (RIP!)—there are just as many surprising celebrity couples that have been kept fairly under the radar. 

For example, did you know pop star Pink admitted to us in 2013 that she once dated N’SYNC member Joey Fatone? Or that Seal and Tyra Banks were a couple? How about the fact that Justin Timberlake hit it off with Fergie? Meanwhile his now-wife, Jessica Biel, was dating Captain America (a.k.a. Chris Evans) for a spell. Are you even aware that Kate Hudson and A-Rod were totally a thing? 

This got us thinking about all the other stars who’ve dated over the years—ones that either kept their relationship status on the DL or kept it hidden from the public entirely. Prepare to be amazed.

The You Creators Are Making Another TV Thriller Based on a Caroline Kepnes Novel

If you’re going through You withdrawals while the third season is in production, we have some good news. The hit Netflix TV series, which is based on the book series of the same name by Caroline Kepnes, is so popular that another one of the author’s novels is being made into a series. You showrunner Sera Gamble is pairing with screenwriter Neil Reynolds again to turn the novel, Providence, into a Peacock original, Deadline reports.

The plot for this new TV show sounds even juicer than You (if that is even possible). The story follows a man named Jon Bronson who disappeared, along with five other classmates, when he was 12. He mysteriously reappears at 22 with no memory of what happened during the 10 years he was missing. There’s also a love story aspect because his childhood crush, Chloe Sayers, always believed he was alive and has a desire to reconnect with Jon. The only problem? He developed supernatural abilities to prevent him from getting physically close to Chloe.

It definitely has similarities to You. Both stories both have romance, intrigue, and plenty of mystery. Providence also has a supernatural element that seems a tad Riverdale-esque. We’re definitely excited, and it adds another competitive title to Peacock‘s catalog.

“I’m thrilled to team up with Sera, Neil, and Greg once again and bring to life another adaptation of Caroline Kepnes’ gripping novels, this time with supernatural thriller and mysterious love story, Providence,” NBCUniversal’s chairman of entertainment content, Susan Rovner, said in a statement, according to EW. “On the drama development side we are ramping up cross-genre series that have wide appeal, and Providence is a shining example of the types of shows we’re looking to bring to Peacock.”

The release date has yet to be announced, but we’ll keep you posted.

Chrissy Teigen Responds to Fans Criticizing Her New Horseback Riding Hobby

There are a lot of activities celebrities receive backlash for doing, but horseback riding typically isn’t one of them—until now. 

Chrissy Teigen tweeted on January 16 that her therapist advised her to take up a new hobby as a way to have something to do just for herself. “My therapist says I need something that I do for just me, as I have absolutely nothing currently lol,” she tweeted. “Today begins my journey into the horse world.” 

At first glance, you’d think most people would maybe hit like, keep scrolling, and continue with their days. But, no… some of Teigen’s followers (she has more than 13 million, by the way) took offense to her tweets. 

“A lot of people are unemployed and struggling to feed their family in the midst of a pandemic. Maybe now isn’t a great time to say you ‘have nothing’ so you bought a horse to entertain yourself,” one critic tweeted in response. To this, Teigen clarified, “a lot of u really misinterpreted this tweet and I guess that’s on me. I didn’t say I have nothing, I said I have nothing I do for just me. A convo with a therapist. A hobby. Cause I lost a baby. And I’m figuring myself out. And i didn’t buy a horse. But oh my god, what if I did? “

Chrissy Teigen experienced a pregnancy loss in September 2020. She first opened up about this publicly via an Instagram post, explaining she and husband John Legend had already picked out a name for the baby boy: Jack. Despite her explanation about why she’s riding horses, her followers continued to judge:

She ended her series of tweets with, “What do you want from me, an essay about me, thinking about you? It’s my Twitter. I’m talking about me?”

Is the Inauguration Canceled?

Is the inauguration canceled? It’s a question people are asking after an angry mob of rioters stormed the Capitol on January 6 and some became concerned that there would be another attack when Joe Biden is sworn in as president on January 20. Given the potential for violence and the inherent risks of gathering at all during the pandemic, some wondered if it would be better to hold the event in a less public space with a smaller group—or even virtually. In the words of Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr., “Might need to gone head and move that Inaguration [sic] to Zoom. Send Biden & Kamala a DocuSign.”

Despite the conversation, the inauguration is not canceled. In fact, it’ll be filled with performances from some of the biggest stars in the country, like Jennifer Lopez, Garth Brooks, and Lady Gaga, who will sing the national anthem. We repeat: the inauguration is on. There will be a swearing-in, there will be a transfer of power, and the Trumps will move out of the White House. (The White House will also be deep cleaned before the Bidens move in for…reasons.) 

Because of the riot, the National Guard is thoroughly investigating its own members for ties to far-right groups and has already removed a dozen guards to make sure there will be no disruption or potential violence during the event. The public won’t be able to access Capitol grounds, and tours of the Washington Monument have been suspended all week.

You might remember that inauguration crowd size was one of President Trump’s very first lies after taking office. Because of the pandemic, getting a crowd won’t even be an option for almost-President Biden. “In the past, members of Congress have received about 200,000 tickets to distribute to their constituents for the swearing in,” reports USA Today, “This year, they will be limited to tickets for themselves and one guest.” As a reminder, members of Congress have already received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, and Biden has received both. 

So…just to clarify: Is the inauguration canceled? No. Just very protected. 

In an Emotional Tribute, Women of Color Celebrate Kamala Harris

With the Inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris imminent, the historic nature of the event has started to sink in. For the first time, the United States will have a woman vice president. Harris will also be the first Black and South Asian person in the job. That’s not lost on two organizations—led by women of color—that have debuted a new video to celebrate this milestone. 

“Throughout history, women have been the fuel for lasting change, we push forward against every setback, determined. Because we understand what’s at stake for us, for our families, and for our communities. 2020 brought more and more challenges, yet still, women brought change,” a narrator says over video of Harris, as well as countless advocates, past and present, who made this moment possible. “We turned out in record numbers to elect new leadership for our country. Led by Black women and women of color, we organized, marched, voted, and we made history.”

Echoing Harris’ own statements in her rousing acceptance speech back in November 2020, Supermajority and Phenomenal Productions assure women that the incoming vice president will be the first of many women of color to reach the highest offices of the United States government. 

“We did this. You did this. Women made this historic moment possible. The spirit of this moment lives in every woman who has imagined, and worked to build a better future,” the narrator continues. “Together, women are a supermajority. And together, we will make sure she is not the last. Let’s use our power to open the door even wider to women everywhere.”

You can watch the full video, below.

The Supermajority Education Fund aims to provide resources, training, and education to help women take civic action in their communities. Meanwhile, Phenomenal Productions—cofounded by Meena Harris, niece to Kamala Harris and an entrepreneur in her own right—works to “stand at the intersection of culture and politics with a specific emphasis on communities of color and underrepresented voting blocs,” per its website. 

“Kamala Harris is an incredible leader and inspiration to women and girls everywhere—including to my two little girls who will be watching, glued to the screen, as she is sworn in as the first woman vice president on Wednesday,” Supermajority Education Fund Executive Director Amanda Brown Lierman said in a statement to Glamour. “This video celebrates that unapologetic joy, that hope, that sense of pride and expectation women—especially women of color—will be feeling on January 20th. Women have marched, organized, voted, and worked so hard for this moment. Nothing is going to stop us from celebrating our first woman vice president!”


Melania Trump Just Gave Her Farewell Address Amid Backlash for Snubbing Jill Biden

After four years, Melania Trump has given her last address as First Lady of the United States.

In the six-minute pre-recorded speech, Melania promoted “love over hatred,” a somewhat befuddling message to come from the administration that peddled lies about the 2020 election results, encouraged insurrection, and refused to attend the upcoming Inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. “Be passionate in everything you do,” she said. “But always remember that violence is never the answer and will never be justified.”

You can watch the entire speech, below. 

It’s important to remember that Donald Trump’s wife is hardly a passive part of his legacy. All the way back in 2011, Melania actively peddled her husband’s racist birtherism conspiracy that Barack Obama was not born in the United States. And, of course, we all remember the “I Really Don’t Care” scandal of 2018. 

As recently as today, January 18, Melania Trump is facing backlash yet again for snubbing Dr. Jill Biden. For the first time in 100 years, the First Lady did not invite the incoming president’s spouse to visit the White House, despite the fact that Michelle Obama welcomed her four years ago. 

“That’s not very ‘Be Best,’ is it,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Michelle Obama graciously hosted Melania Trump at the White House immediately after 2016 election to ensure a smooth transition,” historian Michael Beschloss tweeted. “Melania Trump has done absolutely nothing for Dr. Jill Biden. Some people are givers, others takers.”

In an Instagram post from November 16, Michelle Obama reflected on her family’s experience welcoming the Trumps into the White House, admitting that pushing forward with this presidential tradition “wasn’t easy”—you know, because of the racist conspiracy theories I mentioned earlier. 

“I have to be honest and say that none of this was easy for me. Donald Trump had spread racist lies about my husband that had put my family in danger. That wasn’t something I was ready to forgive,” she wrote. “But I knew that, for the sake of our country, I had to find the strength and maturity to put my anger aside.”

 In her final speech, Melania said serving as First Lady was the “greatest honor” of her life, adding, “I am humbled to have had the opportunity to represent a nation with such kind and generous people.”
