Paris Hilton ties the knot: 'My forever begins today'
Paris Hilton said "I do" on Thursday, marrying venture capitalist Carter Reum in Los Angeles. Guests at the ceremony included famous friends like Kim Kardashian West, Emma Roberts, Paula Abdul, and Nicole Richie, with Demi Lovato performing. The happy couple, according to TMZ, has a weekend of festivities planned, including a "carnival-themed party" at the Santa Monica Pier on Friday. People reports it's all being filmed for Hilton's new Peacock show. Hilton and Reum have been together since 2019, and they got engaged in February. This is Hilton's first marriage, though she has been engaged four times. She shared an Instagram photo of herself in her Oscar de la Renta weddng dress, writing, "My forever begins today."
Taylor Swift's 10-minute 'All Too Well' has arrived
Happy Red day to all who celebrate! Taylor Swift dropped her re-recorded 2012 album Friday, including a 10-minute version of "All Too Well." Swifties quickly began analyzing the extended song, believed to be about actor Jake Gyllenhaal, pointing out new lines that may or may not shed light on their breakup. "You said if we had been closer in age maybe it would have been fine," Swift sings. "And that made me want to die." (Gyllenhaal is nine years older than Swift.) Asked on Late Night with Seth Meyers how the people she's singing about might feel about this re-release, Swift responded, "I haven't thought about their experience" — which Meyers noted was "the biggest burn" possible.
Ewan McGregor teases Darth Vader rematch in 'Obi-Wan Kenobi'
Disney+ on Friday dropped a new sizzle reel for Obi-Wan Kenobi, which will feature Ewan McGregor's highly anticipated return to Star Wars. The series takes place after Revenge of the Sith, and concept art teased a rematch between Obi-Wan and Darth Vader. "[Having] another swing at each other might be quite satisfying for everybody," McGregor said. Hayden Christensen is back as Vader, and McGregor said the "most beautiful" thing about the series is that it "brought me back together with Hayden." This will be McGregor's first time playing Obi-Wan since 2005, not counting his minor voice cameos in the sequel trilogy. No release date has been set, but he'll say "hello there" to Star Wars fans in 2022.
Gene Simmons rips unvaccinated people: 'You are an enemy'
Gene Simmons has had it with anti-vaxxers. The KISS founder blasted those who refuse to get vaccinated against COVID-19 during a radio appearance, arguing they don't have the right to spread the coronavirus the same way they don't have the right "to go through a red light." "If you're willing to walk among us unvaccinated," he charged, "you are an enemy." Simmons also mocked those falsely blaming COVID-19 deaths on other causes. "No, b---h," he said, "they died because they got COVID." He seems to have had in mind one particular NFL star, who shall remain nameless, saying, "I don't care if you play football or not. Stay away from evil people who don't care about your health."
Dwayne Johnson: 'I do pee in my water bottles'
Dwayne Johnson wants to "give context" to the fact that he pees in water bottles at the gym. In a 2017 Instagram video, The Rock accidentally showed viewers his "big bottle of pee" while working out, declaring, "I don't have time to go to the bathroom! I find a bottle, I pee in it!" In a new Esquire interview, he swore he could explain, noting the gyms he works out in usually "don't have a bathroom," and since he stays quite hydrated, when he has go to, "I break out the bottle." These aren't bottles he's "purchased solely for water," he elaborated, but bottles "that I'm no longer using." So there, now it's not weird at all!
