At a certain point today, I just started putting “Love Is A Game” on the single-song repeat. This song! This! Song! Actually: The “To Be Loved” to “Love Is A Game” run has powers that I am afraid to even speak about publicly.
“Love Is A Game” is what Lady Gaga should’ve sung at the end of A St*r Is Born, instead of that knockoff Whitney Houston song. “Love Is A Game” is what I want to dance around my apartment to, Unmarried Woman-style (wasn’t that technically at the beginning of the movie? But you get it). “Love Is A Game” is that one photo of Nicole Kidman — you know the one!
What Paying Subscribers Got This Week:
I have many opinions but only one rule: When it comes to proposals, if you cannot figure out a way to make sure I have my nails done on the day … sweetheart … we simply have no business getting married.
Tell my friends to lie to me, tell my manicurist to lie to me, tell my mother to lie to me! There are no exceptions, no abstentions: if you know a life-altering, highly memorable photo is going to be taken of the person you love most on this earth, the very least you can do is make sure it is a photo they will be comfortable with and feel confident in.
As always, if you want to be added to the paid list but can’t afford it right now, please email me!
Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are doing it.
"Pete has told her he doesn't want to see anyone else," a source told E!. "[Kim] is telling some people they aren't super serious but she isn't seeing anyone else... She's trying to not make a big deal about it but is super into him."
Divorce Jumpsuit inventor Irina Shayk was spotted walking arm in arm with Tom Ford bronzer not-wearer Bradley Cooper. “The A Star Is Born actor/director smiled as the model wore sunglasses and a mask for the outing,” People reported.
Wannabe Mare Jeremy Renner told Men’s Health that he wasn’t physically and verbally abusive to his ex-wife, as she has accused him of being. “I don’t respond publicly or privately to nonsense,” Renner said.
J.Lo is starring in a very Sliding Doors-y movie about everything that happened in the last year of her life — failed engagement, flop promotional cycle — if she didn’t get back together with Ben Affleck. (Unintentionally, too, since this movie was shot before the breakdown of J-Rod!)
In attendance at Leo’s birthday were: his girlfriend Camila Morrone, Robert Pattinson, Suki Waterhouse, LeBron James, Jeff Bezos (and his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez), Beyoncé, and Beyoncé’s husband. Snoop Dogg, also in attendance, posted rogue photos from the event:
My favorite is, of course, the deep fried pic:
And, via Allie Jones of Gossip Time: “You’ll be happy to know that on Sunday, DiCaprio also celebrated privately with Morrone at Rihanna’s favorite restaurant Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica.” Now if that’s not begging for a run-in behavior, I don’t know what is!
Adam Driver, Who Looks Like A Strapping Cedar Tree, Smells Like One Too*
The Haus of Gucci star told W about shooting thee Burberry commercial: “I’m glad they just threw me in the water. My main goal was not to get bit by the horse there. We had a lot of ambitious shots. The one that sticks out to me is where they wanted me to grab the mane and then use the mane to get on top of the horse and ride him onto the shore.”
And I shall say it again!

I kind of lost steam after the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict so tonight is short, sorry. The only thing I could do is skincare and mainline a half dozen episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm, which I have unfortunately taken to calling “my story.” See you Sunday for Succession.
