Lizzo is not having Chris Evans' baby, is releasing new music
It was the drunken DM heard 'round the world, and four months later, the conversation is still flowing. A week ago, Lizzo teased on TikTok that she was pregnant with "a little America" while the Captain America music played in the background. Word got around to the Captain himself, Chris Evans, who told Lizzo his mother is going to be so happy, and made the singer promise there would be no gender reveal party. While revealing their fun little exchange, Lizzo sang "all the rumors are true," which is presumably a snippet from her upcoming single, "Rumors." To sum it up: Rumors of Lizzo having Chris Evans' baby are not true. Rumors of Lizzo releasing "Rumors," her first new single in two years, are true.
TikTokers discovered Charlie Puth's YouTuber past
This week in the Streisand effect: Charlie Puth's suppressed YouTube videos have re-emerged. Despite trying "so hard" to remove any trace of his amateur comedy songs from the internet after he was signed, TikTokers discovered them. "I've been waiting for this day to come. I lasted five years without anybody knowing this," the singer said in a TikTok. The songs are a far cry from "Attention" and "One Call Away," and cover topics including red Hyundais, throwing pickles, and sexy sunglasses. A shaggy-haired Puth stars in the grainy music videos which he acknowledged are "so hard to watch." A good sport, he said if you're in the mood for "a good laugh, type my name plus old videos and have fun!" He then added an "ugh" for good measure.
Bill and Melinda Gates are officially divorced
The fourth richest man in the world is officially back on the market after a King County judge finalized Bill and Melinda French Gates' divorce on Monday. The split follows Bill pursuing extramarital affairs with women who worked at Microsoft, and Melinda hiring divorce lawyers after her husband's ties to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein became public. One of the outstanding questions has been what will become of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the second-largest charitable foundation in the world; the organization will reportedly "pursue a two-year trial period to see if the former couple can continue to work together," The Verge explains. It can, at the very least, also keep its name, since Melinda reportedly won't be changing hers, according to court documents. Bill, meanwhile, frustratingly remains one of the nation's few richest men who have yet to shoot themselves into space.

Jennifer Aniston wants to learn Jennifer Lopez's go-to red carpet pose
Jennifer Aniston says she doesn't know how to stand on a red carpet. Whenever a stylist directs her, it feels weird. But there's one person she thinks has mastered the art of the carpet: Jennifer Lopez. And she wants to learn from her. "I want to know what gives her the look like she's about to be seething. It's amazing. She's almost stuck getting mad at somebody, but she's just so gorgeous," Aniston said. "She's like 'I can't believe I'm standing here.' But I don't think she's trying; she fell out of bed that way. She's a performer." So if Aniston looks slightly P.O.'d on her next carpet, you know she's just trying to emulate that J.Lo stare.
