The daily gossip: Cara Delevingne shows off her house's strangest feature, A-Rod is not dating Ben Affleck's ex, and more
Cara Delevingne's house has a 'vagina tunnel'
The next time you find yourself stuck in a rut, consider crawling in your home's vagina tunnel. Oh, what's that? You mean you don't have a pink, semi-anatomically-accurate corridor hidden behind a padded door somewhere in your home? Well, take it from actress and model Cara Delevingne, a good vagina tunnel can clear things right up. For Architectural Digest, Delevingne showed off the "secret passageway concealed behind a low, painted panel, which leads from the living room to an adjacent bunk room." AD elucidated that "one enters the so-called rebirth canal through a vulval soft sculpture (think Judy Chicago on acid) and then proceeds to crawl out of a round washing-machine door suggestive of a rectum." In a video, Delevingne explained, "I come in here to think, I come in here to create. I feel inspired in the vagina tunnel." As one should.
No, A-Rod is not dating Ben Affleck's ex
Poor Alex Rodriguez. Jennifer Lopez's ex has had to spend his whole post-J.Lo breakup seeing all the headlines about how excited the world is that "Bennifer" is now back together. But despite Rodriguez being spotted this weekend "partying" with Ben Affleck's ex, Lindsay Shookus, this is not in fact a case of giving that guy a taste of his own medicine according to people in the know. While Page Six described Rodriguez and Shookus' outing as being an "intimate backyard gathering in the Hamptons," a source told the tabloid that "there is absolutely zero there. They've been friends for years."
When the Biebers met the Macrons
Justin and Hailey Bieber are on a trip to Paris, but it's not all French food and shopping at Kith. The couple stopped by Élysée Palace on Monday to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron and First Lady Brigitte Macron. Why would the Biebers be meeting with a French politician? A French news outlet reported Justin initiated the meeting and they discussed "issues relating to young people." The meeting coincided with France's Music Day, though Bieber didn't partake in the concerts. Fans were also puzzled by the Biebers' choice of informal attire — Justin wore a suit with blue Nikes, and Hailey wore a cut-out dress. Despite the shoe choice, hopefully the Biebz was able to give Macron insight into "issues relating to young people."
T-Pain recalls Usher waking him up on a flight to tell him he ruined music
T-Pain was napping on a flight to the BET Awards in 2013 when a flight attendant woke him to let him know Usher wanted to have a chat. Usher said, "I'm gonna tell you something, man. You kinda f‑‑‑ed up music," T-Pain recalled in a preview for the Netflix series This Is Pop. The rapper thought Usher was joking at first, but he went on to say T-Pain's use of Auto-Tune "f---ed up music for real singers." T-Pain defended himself by saying he used Auto-Tune (quite iconically), but didn't tell everyone else to use it. Reflecting on the conversation, T-Pain admitted: "That's the very moment that started a four-year depression for me." He clarified on Twitter he still respects Usher and the moment was "a drop in the ocean" of what he was already going through.
Avril Lavigne brings 'Sk8r Boi' to TikTok
Furthering the coalescence of Gen Z and early 2000s pop-punk, Avril Lavigne has joined TikTok, and her first video did not disappoint. She is seen wearing her signature tie and lip syncing to her hit song "Sk8r Boi" (though the syncing is noticeably off, like a true millennial on TikTok). Cut to the chorus and a zoom-in/zoom-out transition reveals none other than the Sk8r Boi himself, Tony Hawk, wearing the tie and skating on a ramp with ocean views behind him. It's clear why Lavigne tapped Hawk for the skating — she shared a video last month falling on the same ramp. Pending further videos, perhaps her TikTok presence will do for her music what Doggface did for Fleetwood Mac.
