All the buzz this week was centered around who was wearing what and sitting where at New York Fashion Week. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West arrived fashionably late to Givenchy draped in all black with Kim showing off her baby bump in a lace gown. Younger sister Kylie worked the sidelines by stepping out with Tyga, emulating her older sister and brother-in-law’s power couple goals.
Selena Gomez was spotted with Brooklyn Beckham at Polo Ralph Lauren’s show and Justin Bieber responded by entering a beer shotgunning contest. Like with most things Bieber — he lost. Unlike Bieber, Taylor Swift did what she does best and won all the things. Swift lost her chill on Instagram when she received her Creative Arts Emmy. Since she can’t only win once, it has been reported that she will head to “Law & Order: SVU” for a guest appearance that will almost definitely result in another Emmy. Here’s to hoping that Swift’s cat, the other Olivia Benson, will also appear on set.
Serena Williams, who is used to Swift-level winning, found herself in a different situation when she lost in the U.S. Open semi-finals on Thursday, Sept. 10. After the loss, Williams found herself in another game that Swift is also familiar with. Rapper Nicki Minaj is allegedly feuding with the tennis star after her romance with Drake went public. Drake and Minaj have been engrossed in love triangles before, specifically with Minaj’s current boyfriend Meek Mills. Williams feels that Minaj is insecure in her relationship and, thus wants to undermine her current relationship. Despite wanting crowds to know she is very much in love with Mills, Minaj threw shade at the budding relationship by saying she couldn’t be replaced in Drake’s life. It is known that Williams doesn’t handle losing well so Minaj should probably watch her back.
In other couples news, America’s favorite bromance — Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon — appeared on “The Tonight Show” to perform the “History of Rap 6.” Sitting down with his good friend, Timberlake shared photos with the audience that included new pictures of his son, Silas, with wife, Jessica Biel. Another photo he showed appeared on his coffee mug that featured a picture of Fallon holding a mug with a picture of Timberlake on it. Their hilarity began earlier in the day at the U.S. Open where the pair danced to Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” in the crowd, sparking a viral video and new squad goals even Taylor Swift is trying to reach.
Another viral video this week did not get as many laughs. Nicole Arbour released a video on her YouTube channel titled “Dear Fat People.” Although intended as satire, audiences did not take kindly to Arbour identifying herself as “fat-phobic.” TLC star Whitney Thore and “Empire” actress Gabourey Sidibe reacted with disdain to the video. Arbour was subsequently fired from an upcoming movie project in the wake of the backlash.
Arnold Schwarzenegger will be given the chance to do some firing as he replaces Donald Trump as host of “Celebrity Apprentice.” As one politician turns back into just a plain celebrity, the other is still seeking political pursuits. No word on if the show’s catchphrase will be changed to “You’re terminated!”
