Camila Cabello laughs off wardrobe malfunction on live TV
My oh my. Camila Cabello is laughing off a recent wardrobe malfunction that occurred during a live appearance on a British talk show. On The One Show, the "Señorita" singer was discussing her favorite move from her new music video, and when she got out of her seat to recreate it, she accidentally flashed her nipple. "I just flashed you," she said, and it was obvious enough that the show's hosts audibly gasped and tried to stifle their laughter. As she sat back down, Cabello said, "I hope you didn't see nipple" — only for co-host Alex Jones (not that Alex Jones) to tell her, "There was a bit of a wardrobe malfunction. I don't know what I saw. There was a flash of something." Cabello later took to TikTok to joke about the incident, revealing "my stylist asked me if I wanted nip covers and I said no" as she lip-synced, "I wish I had a time machine." Fortunately, it's no longer 2004, meaning we probably won't have to spend the next year of our lives discussing this.
Kanye West writes a bizarre poem about his own death
Kanye West is a poet and he didn't even know it — and according to his "latest creation," he's also dead. The rapper on Tuesday shared a strange poem on Instagram titled "Dead," which is about, well, being "DEAD." West writes in the Sixth Sense-esque poem, "They ran through my account like the sign said free bread. But no one wanted to tell me I was DEAD." The poem concludes with West suggesting he was murdered in this scenario. "I found out one day at the newsstand in [purgatory] there was a front page article of my murderers story," he writes. West also decided to pull a David Lynch by preemptively refusing to answer questions about the poem, declaring he "will not explain this new piece for the explanation destroys the mystery and magic." Yes, what could he possibly be getting at with his poem "DEAD," which is just him repeatedly saying he feels like he's dead? He's a real enigma, this guy.
Renée Zellweger walked half a mile to the Oscars: 'I don't recommend it'
Back in Renée Zellweger's day, we had to walk half-a-mile to the Oscars in the rain both ways! Well, okay, she didn't have to. Zellweger, who has won two Academy Awards for Cold Mountain and Judy, told The Tonight Show about her process for getting "grounded" before the Oscars — which involves traveling there on foot. "I walk to the Oscars," she said. "I sneak in." In fact, she recalls that when she was nominated for Judy in 2020, "the only hotel room that was available was half a mile away," so she had to walk that distance in the rain … while wearing heels. "I don't recommend it," she said, "but it is a good exercise for keeping you grounded." Luckily, she did end up winning Best Actress that year, making the story a lot less depressing than it might have been — we don't even want to think about how Glenn Close might have grounded herself before the 2019 Oscars.
Zoë Kravitz criticizes 'click bait' about her 'The Dark Knight Rises' rejection
Zoë Kravitz wants to clarify she's not saying Christopher Nolan is a racist after sharing a shocking story about being rejected. Kravitz, who played Catwoman in The Batman, recently recalled that she wanted to audition for the previous Batman movie, Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, but was told she was too "urban" for a part. "I wasn't able to read because of the color of my skin," she explained to The Guardian, a story she's previously shared in other interviews. But after the quotes went viral, Kravitz criticized "click bait bad journalism" on Instagram. "I did not mention this to point any fingers or make anyone seem racist, namely Chris Nolan, the film's producers or anyone on the casting team, because I truly do not believe anyone meant any harm," she wrote. "I was simply giving an example of what it was like to be a woman of color in this industry at that time." Kravitz added that she's happy "we are attempting to evolve," but requested of everyone, "Let's all calm down."
J.K. Rowling celebrates International Women's Day with more bad tweets
It's once again not a great day to be a Fantastic Beasts publicist. J.K. Rowling decided to celebrate International Women's Day by making everyone on Twitter really mad at her for "dumb transphobic bulls---" once again. The Harry Potter author has been railing against a bill in Scotland that would make it easier for transgender people to legally change their gender, claiming it would "harm the most vulnerable women in society." And on Tuesday, she complained about an official's comments on the definition of a woman, claiming that "under a Labour government, today will become We Who Must Not Be Named Day." Her replies were immediately filled with people absolutely begging her to just please, for the love of God, log off, and when one person asked Rowling if she really wants "your legacy to die on this hill," she replied, "Yes, sweetheart. I'm staying right here on this hill." Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore is set for release in just a few weeks, so yeah, that press tour should go just swimmingly.
