Nikki Bella: John Cena and I grew apart

OHMYGOSSIP — Nikki Bella felt she and John Cena had “grown apart” shortly before they were due to get married.
The 34-year-old professional wrestler and the ‘Blockers’ star were due to tie the knot in May but cancelled their engagement just weeks before their big day, and in a new clip for Nikki’s reality show ‘Total Bellas’ – which was filmed before their split – the star admits she doesn’t feel as close to John as she used to.
Speaking to the camera, she reveals: “I feel like I’m continuing to grow more apart from John, and I should be growing closer to him.”
In the clip, Nikki can be seen enjoying tea with her closest girlfriends during her Parisian bachelorette getaway, when she confesses the doubts she’s been having about her impending wedding.
She tells her friends, including twin sister Brie Bella: “Every little part of this wedding, it’s like, it’s going back.”
But one friend attempts to reassure her as she adds: “But you’re finally telling people what you want. And that’s the best part.”
Despite having her reservations about the wedding, Nikki admits to the camera that she doesn’t want to tell her friends exactly how she feels, as she didn’t want to “ruin” their weekend away.
She adds in the teaser for Sunday’s (22.07.18) episode: “I don’t want to ruin anyone’s weekend and they’re all here for me, so even though I’m feeling all these emotions, I just think I want to keep this to myself for a bit longer. As long as I can, at least.”
Nikki broke off her engagement with fellow wrestler John, 41, over their differing views about having children, but since their split John has said he would love nothing more than to patch up his relationship with Nikki and father her future children.
The pair are not yet back together, but Nikki has claimed she just needs “time” to herself before she considers giving John another shot.

John Oliver Turns a Microscope on CRISPR Gene Editing on Last Week Tonight

On Last Week Tonight, John Oliver took a look at science, a.k.a. “math disguised as outer space and dinosaurs to try and seem interesting.”

Specifically, he looked at the rise of gene editing thanks to the creation of the technology known as CRISPR, which Oliver swears stands for “Crunchy Rectums in Sassy Pink Raybans.” CRISPR allows for very precise gene editing, where scientists can pinpoint a genetic defect and then “cut it out and paste in a fix at which point presumably Clippy shows up and says, ‘Hi, it looks like you’re trying to play god and alter the basic building blocks of life. Need some help?‘”

Gene-editing technology isn’t just for movies like Rampage, which stars Dwayne Johnson blitzing a 30-foot wolf (thus leading Oliver to suggest the film should have been named Wolf Blitzer). Instead, according to Oliver, gene editing is either “going to cure all disease or kill every last one of us” and for him, it’s currently unclear which way it will go. Accurate gene-editing is wildly difficult, but when it works it seems like a miracle, although as Oliver points out it’s actually “more convenient” than a miracle, because you “don’t need to spend the next 2,000 years worshiping the scientists, you can just be like ‘thanks’.”

The technology is still quite new, though. As Oliver notes, that is leading to a mismatch between expectation and the realities of current scientific capabilities, which are less about bringing woolly mammoths back to life and more about creating “beefcake beagles.”

For Oliver, though, while the possibilities of ending disease are exciting, we must balance the potential rewards with the risk of disaster, whether genetically engineering mice so they can’t get Lyme disease or trying to “fix” a genetic problem that may not need to be fixed. (“Eugenics is a word that rightly terrifies people,” says Oliver). As the technology continues to improve, he thinks we need to balance “best case scenarios like ending malaria” with catastrophic “prophecies of 30-foot wolves.”

John Legend Honors Real-Life Heroes At The BET Awards And Delivers Powerful Speech

The singer was in attendance at the BET Awards, and when he took the stage, he made sure to pay tribute to some of the people who have been making a real and positive change in the world. Not only was his speech very inspiring, but he made sure to also bring some of those heroes alongside him in front of the crowd.

‘This has already proven to be quite a year for our country. School shootings, police brutality, and now the evil act of intentionally separating parents from their children at the border,’ John Legend started.

As you may be aware, he was there in order to present the BET Humanitarian Award, and Legend explained that this year, he thought he should do things a bit differently.

‘Typically, the BET Awards honors a celebrity humanitarian who’s done something extraordinary for the world. But tonight, we want to honor a few of the people who had the opportunity in their everyday lives to do something impactful and unexpected for our community,’ he went on.

That being said, the first one he honored was a Stoneman Douglas High School student who got shot five times while selflessly attempting to help and protect fellow students during the Parkland mass shooting.

Another one that joined him on stage was James Shaw Jr., a man who wrestled an assault rifle out of a shooter’s hands during yet another mass shooting this time at a Waffle House in Nashville, Tennessee back in May.

Justin Blackman, a high school student, was honored as well for the fact that he walked out of class on National Walkout Day by himself, to protest gun violence.

Mamoudou Gassama was introduced as a ‘real-life superhero.’

You may know who he is from a viral video that showed the man climbing a few stories outside of a French apartment complex to save a baby dangling from a balcony.

Naomi Wilder, who is only 11 years old was also recognized for her progressive mind and inspiring passionate words at the March For Our Lives event in Washington, D.C.

And last but not least, Legend named journalist Sean King, recognizing his work in uncovering and reporting ‘stories that make us aware of atrocities in our community’ and who ‘speaks truth to power’ every single day.

‘Tonight, we honor these heroes and thank them all for giving us hope and reminding us everyone has an opportunity to do something extraordinary. Don’t be afraid to be a hero,’ Legend concluded.

120 Larry Nassar Survivors Urge Michigan State University to Fire Interim President John Engler

(LANSING, Mich.) — A letter signed by 120 sexual abuse victims of former sports doctor Larry Nassar on Tuesday urged Michigan State University’s governing board to oust interim president John Engler, saying he had reinforced a “culture of abuse” at the school.

The women and girls issued their joint statement three days before the board of trustees’ next meeting and after a week in which demands for Engler’s resignation reached a fever pitch.

Engler, a former governor who took over on an interim basis in February after the previous president resigned amid fallout from the Nassar scandal, has resisted pressure to step down. Media outlets last week reported that he sent emails to another university official in April criticizing lawyers for Nassar’s sexual assault victims and suggesting the first woman to go public with her accusations was probably getting a “kickback” from her attorney.

Among those who signed the letter are Olympic gymnastics gold medalist Aly Raisman, and Rachael Denhollander, a former gymnast who has been one of the most vocal critics of Engler.

In their lengthy written statement, the 120 “sister survivors” said they stand together against “character attacks” and that Engler “has only reinforced the culture of abuse at MSU.” Current and future victims of sexual abuse “should know they can raise their voice without being characterized as pawns too foolish to know they are manipulated,” they said.

“There is no debate: President Engler has failed miserably,” they said in the letter. “Nothing at MSU — none of the mindsets that allowed Larry Nassar to abuse children for decades — have changed. Therefore, it is our position that MSU cannot move forward and become an institution of integrity and safety until John Engler is no longer president.”

Two of the university’s publicly-elected trustees, Democrats Brian Mossalam and Dianne Byrum, have called for the resignation of Engler, who served as the state’s Republican governor from 1991 through 2002. A portion of the statement is directed at the six other trustees, four Republicans and two Democrats, asking them to “stand for what is right.”

“Unfortunately, and with great regret, John Engler’s tenure as interim president has continued the bleeding rather than stem it,” Brian Mosallam said in a statement released Friday morning.

Trustees hired Engler after the former president, Lou Anna Simon, suddenly resigned in January in the wake of the Nassar scandal. Nassar himself was fired from Michigan State in 2016, two years after he was the subject of a sexual assault investigation.

Under Engler’s tenure, Michigan State has agreed to a $ 500 million settlement with 332 women and girls who said they were sexually assaulted by Nassar, a former campus sports doctor who also worked with the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team. Nassar now is in prison. Of that, $ 75 million will cover future claims.

“We stood against our abuser. We stood against an abusive culture. Now we are asking you to stand against it too and lead MSU forward into real change,” the letter said in its conclusion.

John Boyega Slams People Who ‘Harass’ ‘Star Wars’ Cast Members

Star Wars: The Last actor star John Boyega took to social media today to slam all of the franchise’s haters who like to harass cast members online. Here is what he had to say!

The 26 year old star’s tweets followed Kelly Marie Tran’s decision to delete her Instagram account as she was sick and tired of having to deal with all kinds of negative comments and trolling.

But she was not the only one who whipped her account due to the online harassment.

Back in 2016, Daisy Ridley also left social media after she had posted about gun control.

‘To the majority of the Star Wars fans thank you for supporting us and putting yourselves in our shoes. You understand that there’s a process so much appreciated!’ Boyega wrote.

‘If you do not like Star Wars or the characters understand that there are decisions makers and harassing the actors/actresses will do nothing. You are not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude. Even if you paid for a ticket!’ the man said in another tweet.

This month, Tran deleted all her Insta posts after she allegedly got sexist, racist and generally hateful comments on her profile.

‘On social media, a few unhealthy people can cast a big shadow on the wall, but over the past four years, I have met lots of real fellow SW fans. We like and dislike stuff, but we do it with humor, love, and respect. We are the VAST majority, we are having fun and doing just fine,’ Johnson wrote.

John Lewis And Other Black Leaders Reject Black Female Challenger In Boston

As Democrats finalize their primary election picks on who will do battle against Republican candidates in November, friction between local and national political black leaders may jeopardize what was supposed to be a unified front in the fight for seats congressional seats come November. On Saturday, inside the brick-lined walls of the Twelfth Baptist Church in Boston, Georgia’s Democratic Rep. John Lewis showed up to campaign for Rep. Michael E. Capuano, a white liberal Democrat, who is being challenged by Ayanna Pressley, a black progressive.

Pressley was the first woman of color to be elected to Boston’s City Council in its 108-year history. In fact, all members of the Congressional Caucus’ Political Action Committee endorsed Capuano over Pressley, according to The New York Times.

“People who have been around for awhile, they know their way around,” Lewis said. “They know where all the bodies are buried and they know how to get things done.”

Lewis’ case for Capuano: His experience, and seniority—which he said will be needed for Democrats’ fight against President Donald Trump, rather than the youthful energy of Pressley’s grassroots campaign. “It’s important to keep a leader, a fighter, and warrior like Mike Capuano around,” he said.

The Seventh Congressional District that is up for grabs stretches from Boston’s Dorchester and Roxbury neighborhoods to the communities of Cambridge and Somerville across the Charles River. It is the state’s only district where the majority of residents are not white and Mr. Capuano, who is white, has never faced a serious primary challenger in his 10-term tenure in Congress.

According to the New York Times, Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.), chairman of CBC’s political action committee said, “the group endorsed Mr. Capuano largely because of his longtime personal relationships with its members and his senior position on the House Financial Services Committee.” While he supports diversity in the House, Meeks said new candidates “should focus on unseating Republicans—not on defeating “a Democrat who has worked hard in the caucus.”

Local black politicians in Boston said they would have preferred the CBC follow Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey’s lead in staying neutral in the local race. Marie St. Fleur, a former state representative questioned the black caucus’s understanding of local issues. Bennie Wiley, a powerful civic leader in Massachusetts and supporter of Pressley said she was “disappointed, but not surprised.” Even Ministers at the Twelfth Baptist Church expressed concerns.

“For me, I kind of recoil and I know many leaders recoil at the idea that we’re supposed to sit back and wait our turn because someone else has voted within our interests,” Rev. Jeffrey Brown, an associate pastor who decided to skip the town hall, said.

Michael Capuano’s track record:

  • Introduced the most bills compared to Massachusetts Delegation: Capuano has introduced 22 bills and resolutions—the most bills compared to other legislators.
  • Got bicameral support on the fewest bills compared to Massachusetts Delegation: The House and Senate often work on the same issue simultaneously by introducing companion bills in each chamber. 0 of Capuano’s bills and resolutions had a companion bill in the Senate. Working with a sponsor in the other chamber makes a bill more likely to be passed by both the House and Senate.
  • Got the 3rd fewest cosponsors on their bills compared to Massachusetts Delegation: Capuano’s bills and resolutions had 88 cosponsors in 2017. Securing cosponsors is an important part of getting support for a bill, although having more cosponsors does not always mean a bill will get a vote
  • Got his bills out of committee the 3rd least often compared to Massachusetts Delegation: Most bills and resolutions languish in committee without any action. Capuano introduced 1 bill in 2017 that got past committee and to the floor for consideration.
  • Was 18th most present in votes compared to Serving 10+ Years: Capuano missed 0.7% of votes (5 of 710 votes) in 2017
  • Ranked 95th most liberal compared to All Representatives
  • Powerful Cosponsors: 1 of Capuano’s bills and resolutions in 2017 had a cosponsor who was a chair or ranking member of a committee that the bill was referred to. Getting support from committee leaders on relevant committees is a crucial step in moving legislation forward.
  • Committee Positions: Capuano held a leadership position on 0 committees and 1 subcommittee, as either a chair (majority party) or ranking member (minority party), at the end of the session.
  • Joining Bipartisan Bills: Capuano cosponsored 249 bills and resolutions introduced by other Members of Congress. Cosponsorship shows a willingness to work with others to advance policy goals.
  • Government Transparency: GovTrack looked at whether Capuano supported any of 21 government transparency, accountability, and effectiveness bills in the House that we identified in this session. We gave Capuano 0 points, based on one point for cosponsoring and three points for sponsoring any of these bills.
  • Laws Enacted: Capuano introduced 0 bills that became law, including via incorporation into other measures, in 2017. Keep in mind that it takes a law to repeal a law. Very few bills ever become law.
  • Writing Bipartisan Bills: Capuano tends to gather cosponsors only on one side of the aisle. 6 of Capuano’s 22 bills and resolutions had both a Democratic cosponsor and a Republican cosponsor in 2017.

John Oliver Shines a Light on the Unregulated Rehab Industry on Last Week Tonight

On Sunday night’s episode of Last Week Tonight, John Oliver looked at rehab, a.k.a., “the most common place to go after hitting rock bottom other than Dave & Buster’s.”

According to Oliver, rehab is where people go to address drug or alcohol addiction, but aside from that “the word rehab is so broadly defined as to be close to meaningless.” Now that addiction is recognized as a disease, and not a moral failing, it has evolved into a $ 35 billion industry with rehab facilities across the country with names like Promises, Passages, and Milestones, and other “names that sound like perfumes worn exclusively by widows.”

Unfortunately, according to Oliver, there is no set definition of rehab, no federal standards for counseling practices or rehab practices, and many rehab facilities don’t involve “evidence-based care” at all. You could get a traditional 12-step program or you could get something like equine therapy, even though there is no empirical evidence that it helps with addiction.

Rehab is typically just the first step in a lifetime of recovery, but according to Oliver, many of them make broad claims about their success rates, many of which are completely self-reported and with no data to back them up. Plus, in many states, opening a rehab facility is easy. According to Oliver, in Idaho, so long as you aren’t working with teens, you don’t need a license at all to open a rehab center. In Florida, if you want to open a so-called “sober home,” there is nothing to stop you. O.J. Simpson could open one right now “which would obviously be called The Juice Cleanse and there is nothing standing in his way.”

Adding to the problems, according to Oliver, it’s nearly impossible to find good, unbiased information about addiction and treatment online or through TV ads. “Everything about this industry is difficult to navigate” and as Oliver notes, that is a real problem, because rehab is truly an issue of life and death — and even for him, no laughing matter.

John Varvatos to Offer Jewelry for First Time

John Varvatos is going into the jewelry business — and not in a small way.
Through a licensing deal with Gurhan Orhan, the designer has created his first signature jewelry collection, which will consist of more than 100 pieces of bracelets, cuff links, necklaces and rings. The designs will be crafted using precious and semiprecious stones, sterling silver, bronze, brass, leather and 18-karat gold.

The line includes bracelets, rings and necklaces. 

And like the designer’s apparel collection, the jewelry will have a rebellious, rock ‘n’ roll edge and is intended to complement his men’s wear. Prices will start at $ 198 retail.
Among the materials that will be used are black diamonds, sapphires, lapis lazuli, black onyx, sodalite, pyrite, gray obsidian, jasper, turquoise and labradorite. Varvatos stressed that the stones were all hand-selected from various sources around the world that ensure ethical treatment of those who mine, produce and deliver the stones. Diamonds were sourced in compliance with the guidelines of the Kimberley Process, a certification system developed to prevent conflict diamonds from entering the market. And the collection was hand-finished by artisans in Istanbul.

It’s official, Luna is a big sister! Chrissy Teigen and John Legend welcomed their new bundle of joy, a baby boy, on Wednesday, May 16.

“Somebody’s herrrrrrre!” Teigen tweeted on Wednesday along with baby bottle emojis.

Her husband retweeted the post and Brielle Biermann was among the first to congratulate the couple, replying, “OMFGGGG!!!!!! Taurus baby!! Congratulations.”

As previously reported, the 32-year-old Lip Sync Battle host enlisted their daughter’s help for the big social media reveal of baby No. 2 in November 2017. In the sweet Instagram video, Teigen asks the tot, “Luna, what’s in here?” as she points to her belly, to which Luna squealed, “BB!” She hilariously captioned the clip: “it’s john’s!”

The Cravings author later revealed that she and the “All of Me” singer, 39, were expecting a boy. Us Weekly caught up with Teigen in March, when she opened up about the possibility of more children — and how she’s in no rush to get her post-baby body back. “I think I do want to have another baby after this and then get hot,” she told Us at the time,” noting that her doting husband loves her pregnancy body.

“I have a husband who truly loves the whole experience,” she gushed to Us. “He holds my belly at night, sings to it, wants to be there for me. I’m really lucky because some men start to look at you like a tool, I’ve heard, so I’ve been scared and don’t let that happen to me! But it hasn’t and it’s really good.”

Teigen and Legend tied the knot in a gorgeous September 2013 wedding in Lake Como, Italy. They welcomed their first child, the aforementioned Luna, in April 2016.

It’s Time for John Kelly to Shape Up or Go

Chip Somodevilla/Getty

Idiot, moron, unhinged. There’s a whole section of the thesaurus for that ways that the President’s closest advisors have reportedly described him. The latest addition to this thread comes from White House Chief of Staff John Kelly who reportedly referred to his boss as an idiot.

Kelly says it’s a lie. But either way, the episode is part of an ongoing series of leaks, from the White House, that raise questions about Kelly’s ability to manage the place. After all, a chief of staff who not only can’t control leaks in general, but can’t even control leaks about himself, doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence.

All of which begs the question: why General Kelly is still around? The answer is, he shouldn’t be, at least not unless he steps up soon.

Lupita Nyong'o to Star in John Woo's Remake of 'The Killer'

The idea of an Academy Award winner starring in an action movie directed by John Woo is kinda mind-blowing, especially for longtime fans of the filmmaker's work. Add in a gender switch in the lead role and our intrigue immediately soars.

Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave; Black Panther, above) is in negotiations to star in The Killer, according to Deadline. It's a new version of John Woo's classic Hong Kong action film. If things work out, Nyong'o will…

John Cena Is Just as Heartbroken Over His Breakup as You Are

It’s been 11 days since John Cena and Nikki Bella publicly announced their split on April 15, and we’re still reeling from the news. On Saturday, Nikki and twin sister Brie Bella attended the Nirvana Food and Wine Festival in Arizona, where Brie spoke exclusively to Us Weekly about the breakup… while Nikki stuck to Instagram to express her feelings. Now, Cena has spoken up about how he feels, and no surprise here: he’s heartbroken.

While promoting Bumblebee: The Movie at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, Cena spoke with several reporters about the split, including Extra‘s Mark Wright. Cena told Wright that he will always love Bella and said, “The one take away — and it sucks — but the one take away I can have for me is that… because I feel so heartbroken, I know I was in love and I will never be able to take that away.”

Cena said that he wants people to know, “When you feel down, just hang in there and fight through it… every low comes with a high.”

In another interview with TMZ reporters, Cena made similar comments. He said, “I love Nicole with all my heart and the split’s tough.” He added, “It’s a tough time but that’s life… We all go through highs and we all go through lows.”

Since the breakup, Cena hasn’t spent much time in the public eye, but he has posted a handful of times on Twitter—to share inspirational messages as well as a weightlifting video in honor of his 41st birthday on Monday, April 23. The official Bella twins Twitter retweeted the video, which perhaps points to Brie’s insistence to Us Weekly that Cena will “always be family”.

CinemaCon was Cena’s first public appearance since the announcement of the split, and his social media presence has been scattered. Meanwhile, Nikki hasn’t spoken to reporters, but she’s steered her focus on Instagram away from the breakup and toward bluer skies, like accomplishing her personal goals.

Talking to Jason Jules about John Simons, Patron Saint of…

Talking to Jason Jules about John Simons, Patron Saint of English Ivy

In an age where everyone buys almost everything off the internet, sometimes from far-flung warehouses located in other countries, it’s easy to forget the important role certain brick-and-mortars played in shaping regional taste. These retailers, who were often small and independent haberdasheries, were the original tastemakers. Fred Seagal, for example, was once thought of as the gateway into the Los Angeles fashion market; Louis Boston introduced many to the comfort of Italian tailoring. In fact, Luciano Barbera got his start in marketing tailored clothing because of a suggestion from Murray Pearlstein, Louis Boston’s late proprietor. The two worked together to develop a line of ready-to-wear Italian suits and sport coats, which was initially aimed at the New England market.  

John Simons is considered by some to be the patron saint of English Ivy for the same reasons. For the last sixty years, he’s been a steadfast evangelist for the same kind of clothes – J. Keydge natural-shouldered jackets, Florsheim Imperial brogues, Bass penny loafers, button-down shirts, and other things Ivy. He introduced the look to English shores in the 1950s and has stuck with it ever since, proving there’s such a thing as classic style. 

More importantly, he’s played an important role in shaping British taste. For almost three generations, mods, suedeheads, and skinheads (a term for a section of working class youths before the name became associated with racists) have gone to John Simons to look street-smart and well-heeled. John Simons was also the one who gave Harrington jackets their name. Originally referred to as golf jackets, Simons remembers the time when he climbed into his shop window to write on the buff-colored card attached to a store display jacket: “The Rodney Harrington Style.” It was reference to how Rodney Harrington in Peyton Place wore the same model. Now the name is everywhere. 

This Monday, Mono Media is releasing a film about John Simons by Jason Jules. Some readers may recognize Jason as the face of Drake’s, but he’s also a vet in the London arts scene, having worked as a club promoter, PR rep, and fashion industry consultant. His film, titled A Modernist, is about a shop he loves, the clothing inside, and the store’s connection to culture. We sat down with Jason to talk about his film, Ivy Style, and other topics. 

image

How did this project start?

I’ve known John’s shop since I was a kid. When it comes to Ivy Style, jazz, and modernism, John was Wikipedia before Wikipedia. Discovering his shop was a real eye opener for me. I was already into beat poetry and jazz at the time, but his shop pulled everything together. It has authenticity; it’s a place I can trust. I know if I go there with my eyes closed, pick up something from a rail in my size, it’ll always be the right thing. There’s not a single questionable item in the store.

Later, when I started making short films, it occurred to me that I should do something on John Simons. I put it off for a while, and then I heard a rumor John passed away. Thankfully, that turned out to be untrue, but the rumor kicked me into gear. What was originally supposed to be a five-minute nod to important influences in my life eventually grew into this hour-long feature on the shop and its clothes, as well the cultural attendants that came with them.

You mentioned trust. When I was a kid, I remember certain stores having an incredible amount of influence. If something was carried there, it was considered good. Do you think that’s still possible with the internet? Stores are so untethered by geography nowadays, people are constantly comparison shopping online. Loyalty seems like it’s at an all-time low.

I do, partly because I think certain stores offer a curational experience. I can walk past an art gallery, for example, and look at the work through the window. But that’s not the same as going inside and walking through the gallery, talking with the curator, and learning more about the pieces. Stores that give you a similar experience are the ones that will flourish. Think of shops such as Supreme or John Simons. Even if you go in there and get nothing but a conversation, you’ll walk out with something. You’re being exposed to a set of inherent values and taste markers that are almost too nuanced to grasp if you purely shop online.  

image
image

John Simons has also historically sat in the middle of some important cultural movements – his influence on mods, skinheads, suedeheads, etc.

John has a deep understanding of clothing, and he loves sharing it with people, regardless of their background. That’s one reason why there was, and still is, such diversity among his customers. He sold to kids who were into reggae and ska, just as he sold to advertising executives. He treated everyone equally.

That wasn’t always true elsewhere. There were some stores in Mayfair or tailors on Savile Row where, if you didn’t fit a certain archetype, you may have been met with a level of resistance or snobbery. John never did that; he welcomed everyone. He was never a mod or skinhead himself, but his clothes appealed to all those people. And he had a knack for putting his store in forward facing areas. At one point, he had a shop in the Soho area of London, just as the place was becoming an advertising hub. There were film companies and advertising agencies up one way, then music venues down the other. Right in the middle was John Simons’ Squire shop, so you got business people and music fans coming into the same store, buying the same clothes.

image
image

What do you think drew mods and skinheads to these clothes?

I think the clothes meant different things to different people. I imagine skinheads and suedeheads were reacting against the hippie movement at the time. There was a sort of neatness about the look that appealed to their working class roots, but the clothes also embodied a certain aspirational element. It was looking a bit more accomplished than what your wage packet might suggest. The early mods, on the other hand, often had good jobs and they liked dressing a certain way. But the appeal was still essentially aspirational – looking a bit outward at the time, as opposed to the more insular mindset of the previous generation of kids just coming out of the war.

That kind of sounds like the story of the ‘Lo Heads.

There are some parallels. I think the thing that makes it different is that John’s shop somewhat tempered what people wore. For example, as a kid, if I went into Ralph Lauren or Harrod’s, I knew I would be followed. It was a given, regardless of what I wore. Whereas if I went to John’s shop, I knew I would be welcomed. So for me, and I’m sure a lot of people, going to alternative sources to buy something wasn’t an attractive option. John shop was always the primary source in that way. That meant you interacted with the shop as more than just a retail outlet.

image

I remember in the ‘80s, I went into John’s shop to buy two Baracuta jackets. I wanted them a size too big, because that was my “look” then, and John told me the fit wasn’t right. I didn’t listen to him at the time because I was young and still finding my way with clothes, but his advice still stuck with me. The service made for a different kind of experience.  

Many luxury companies back then worried about working-class people – often ethnic minorities – wearing their clothes because they feared the association devalued their name. What made John different?

It was just the kind of people who worked in the shop. It was always about the clothes and culture. If someone showed an interest in the clothes and culture, they were eager to share their knowledge. And in many ways, they were also “outsiders.” John is a working class Jewish kid from East London. He has an outsider perspective. Some brands are protectionist, but John is an ambassador. Burberry used to vilify people who wore their check head-to-toe, but now they style their clothes the same way on the runway.  

Or look at what’s happened with Dapper Dan!

Dapper Dan was public enemy number one for Gucci at one point, and now he’s hailed as the patron saint. There’s a new generation of marketing people, creative directors, and designers inside brands such as Ralph Lauren, Burberry, and Gucci that recognize the value of those outsider perspectives. John, on the other hand, has always been aware of this, so his door was always open to everyone.

image
image
image


In his book Ametora, David Marx wrote about how Ivy Style became its own thing in Japan. People wore things because their cultural heroes in Japan were wearing them, not because they were trying to imitate students at Harvard or Yale. Do you feel that happened with Ivy Style in the UK?

I think that a lot of people were into it in a purely contextual and insular way. After the first wave of modernists, the style was increasingly adopted by kids who wanted to emulate a mod look, and not because they were trying to be Italians. They wore those clothes because their mates were doing it. It becomes very peer-centric, very self-referencing in that way.  

For example, I was asked a few years ago how long I’ve been into Ivy. I hadn’t even realized I was into Ivy! I was into button-down shirts and loafers and flat-front trousers. I was into patch pockets and cord jackets. I was into The Graduate and Steve McQueen. I was into Blue Note Records and modern jazz. I liked a certain look that could be defined as Ivy, but for me, it had a different meaning as a kid growing up in London.

Is there still that connection between clothing and culture? The Guardian had an article about how, fifty years ago, you could tell if someone was a mod, punk, hippie, goth, or soulboy from the way they dressed, but that’s harder now since so many people follow the same trends. Are there still youth subcultures that can be identified by the way they dress?   

I think there are, but things move so quickly now, it’s hard to recognize something as peripheral. Like, Palace Skateboards used to be super niche five or six years ago. It was just a group of kids making t-shirts and crazy skateboard videos. Now they’re all over the place, and it’s easy to forget they came out of an incredibly small subculture.

image
image

Or look at Tyler the Creator and his line, Golf Wang. That originally came out of a subculture and the mainstream didn’t mess with it because they considered the line too obscure, too wild, too odd. Now they’re embraced like latter-day rockstars. It’s just that this transition happens so quickly now, it feels like things can become mainstream almost overnight. But the people behind these things were part of a subculture at one point.

Another brand like this is Trapstar. They started as kids who liked A Bathing Ape, but wanted something more local. They were West London kids who threw parties in other people’s shops and made incredibly high-spec’d t-shirts. They’re very authentic to London streetwear culture, but now their product is being sold internationally and sported by mainstream stars such as Rihanna.

Do you think the internet has homogenized or diversified culture?

I think it’s done both. It’s allowed people to find their own voice and realize there’s a community somewhere that will respond to them without any filter. But there’s also a lot of people who want to be part of a homogenous, mainstream culture. The internet allows for both of those things. I also think we all have both these elements in us. I like pop music, but also weird jazz. I watch Netflix, but also obscure films. The internet allows us to explore both these sides of ourselves, so they can happily co-exist.

Heritage clothing was really big five or six years ago, and now it feels like things have moved on. Is it harder to market this type of film now?

There was a point in the heritage movement where people thought there was a genuine shift in consciousness, that people would always buy less, buy better. Heritage turned out to be a trend, but it was an important trend. I’m not sure what happened, but like you say there was a palpable move away from what was essentially a style of clothing built around nostalgia. What remains of the trend, however, is a heightened appreciation of quality and craft, as well as a new kind of language, which we can apply to everything.

image
image

If you look at people who are into sportswear right now, they still talk about how things are made – the weight of the fabric on a t-shirt, how the print is applied. It’s no longer weird to talk about how denim was woven. Even sales assistants in high-street stores want to tell you how a pair of jeans was made.

So, in some ways, it’s become easier to talk about a clothing style that’s been around for more than fifty years. Mainstream journalists don’t look at you funny anymore if you describe your clothes as “Ivy.” At the same time, the social network for this stuff is a little more diffuse, but the people who really appreciate classic clothing will always appreciate it.

Do you think Ivy is ever going to come back in the way it did ten years ago?

I don’t know, but it’s like when the heritage thing was in full swing. Someone asked if I was pissed because all these people were dressing like me. “You’re looking like a trendy!,” they said. I said it’s fine because their interest in Ivy and Americana is a passing thing, for the majority of them, while I’m stuck in this. There will always be enough of us to have a community. This film isn’t for everyone, just as John’s shop isn’t. They’re for people who get it. For me, Ivy never went.

When I look at John Simons’ shop, it strikes me how the same clothes can look different in the UK than they do in the US. You mentioned the diversity among John’s customers, his acceptance and even embracement of others. At the same time, here in the US, Ivy style has lost some of its charm.

Part of that is because some members of the alt-right have picked up Ivy. The other part is how it’s become harder to ignore the uglier associations with the style. My co-writer Pete put it well a few years ago when he said “prep implies privilege and inherited money; some of prep’s charm comes from the unquestioning self confidence bestowed only by independent wealth.” The 1950s boarding schools and universities that originally made Ivy appealing are also the same places that discriminated against minorities around the same period.


image
image


Yet, in the UK, these clothes don’t feel like they have that baggage – at least in the way they’re presented at John Simons. They have a different feel, much more modern and even democratic. 

I know what you mean. For me, wearing these clothes, I always felt like I was in the process of subverting something. Even if it was just what it means to be a black kid growing up in London, being the only kid in the classroom wearing a button-down shirt. It was about subverting something that’s not supposed to be for you. But in some places, the look has been recast as the uniform of a social and economic elite. It’s harder to ignore how some people are not just taking advantage of their privilege, but even flaunting it.

Sometimes I think the heritage movement is partly connected to where we are now. I remember looking at a really important blog during that period, and they had a list of American-made products, authentic American brands. There were fifty to a hundred brands on that list, everyone from Pendleton to Woolrich, but none of them were Native American. I remember thinking it was so strange. We’re buying into something inclusive and liberating, but there’s also something nebulous around the edges. When Trump won, my girlfriend said, “you know Jason, part of what you’re into is responsible for this.”

[Laughing] A reader once emailed me saying that! He said my writing on clothing was partly responsible for the rise of the alt-right.

I think in recent years, I’ve become more aware of how my interest in Ivy differs from others. I’m purely into a look, whereas some people are into what a look symbolizes – a sort of sanitized version of 1950s America. When I connect the clothes to culture, I connect them to personal heroes, who were often jazz musicians. Or things happening today, so it’s very contemporary for me. I don’t use these clothes to be wistful about the past.

One of the things that appealed to me is how people such as Muhammad Ali, Sidney Poitier, and Miles Davis wore the style. They looked great in Ivy. Fundamentally the style has always had a racial and socio-economic element, but today – just as how Ali, Poitier, and Davis wore it – what’s most important is how you interpret the clothes and how you wear them.  

Thanks for your time, Jason!

Readers can purchase DVD copies of A Modernist through Mono Media (the film’s official release is Monday, April 23rd, but pre-orders are available now). Jason is also working on a new book about sneakers, which is slated for release sometime next year. He tells us it’s about where sneaker culture is going, as well as how it impacts the rest of culture – social media, identity, luxury, consumerism, etc. You can keep up with John Simons and Jason Jules through Instagram.

Inside Tom Cruise and John Travolta’s Scientology Feud

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

A former Scientologist who allegedly acted as Tom Cruise’s personal security guard has given an intriguing account of the long-rumored rift between Cruise and the religion’s other most high-profile member, John Travolta, as they competed for the favor of Scientology chief David Miscavige.

The church has responded to the allegations by accusing former member Brendan Tighe of making “unsubstantiated claims” and being “an apostate who has a personal axe to grind.”

Tighe is the subject of an interview with Australian magazine New Idea in which he says, “Cruise is the only celeb with a direct line to Miscavige. Travolta didn’t have that. Travolta doesn’t get anything free, no one is giving him absurd gifts like an airplane hangar, custom-made bikes, or over-the-top favors.”

Why Nikki Bella Ended Her 6-Year Relationship With John Cena

Nikki Bella was the one to throw in the towel when it came to her relationship with John Cena, an insider close to the couple reveals to Us Weekly exclusively.

“The things he’s been saying on television and in the press recently hurt Nikki,” the insider tells Us about why Bella, 34, ultimately ended her six-year relationship with Cena, 40. “John is a mess” because of the split, the source continued, and noted that while Bella isn’t happy, “she is not devastated.”

John-Cena-and-Nikki-Bella split

“She’s in a place where she’s just exhausted by some of the things going on in the relationship. John is the love of her life [and] she adores him. They still speak. It’s just very hard. But right now, she has to focus on herself,” the insider continues.

As Us Weekly was first to report, the couple, who got engaged in April 2017, announced their split on Sunday, April 15. “While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another,” the former couple told Us in a statement. “We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.”

The WWE stars’ personalities were also very different, which ultimately pulled them apart. While Cena is shy and introverted, he’s very guarded, the insider notes. “Right now, Nikki has to find Nikki. She’s in a great place with her career, has an amazing family who will be with her through this entire journey, and she needs some time to figure It all out.”

Following the announcement, Cena took to Instagram to post a meme that read, “Worst day ever!” He also shared a telling quote from poet Walt Whitman on Saturday, April 14: “We were together. I forget the rest.”

Bella and Cena’s wedding was set to take place on May 5.

The film's writers already have sequel ideas, though it's not at all certain that Blunt and/or Krasinski will return. Even if they are not involved in a sequel, their futures certainly look bright.

John Oliver takes 18-minutes to explain what’s wrong with US immigration courts

TwitterFacebook

The immigration courts in the US have some problems. A lot of problems, from the sounds of it.

In the video above for Last Week Tonight, John Oliver breaks them down one by one — everything from the massive discrepancy in the deportation rate between cities to the fact that people who can’t afford a lawyer are often forced to represent themselves.

“The truth here is we are going to need big changes,” says Oliver. “Ideally the biggest change would be to make the courts fully independent from the DOJ, which is something that can’t happen overnight or, under this particular congress, probably at all. Read more…

John Oliver Goes Off on Sinclair, Calls News Anchors ‘Members of a Brainwashed Cult’

HBO

Last year, Last Week Tonight aired an eye-opening segment on Sinclair Broadcast Group, a right-wing telecommunications company that currently reaches 40 percent of American households.

Host John Oliver was critical of Sinclair’s extreme conservative bias, including its hiring as chief political analyst former Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn, whose rants air multiple times per week on all of Sinclair’s 193 stations; its policy of mandatory “must-run” segments from brass, such as the bogus claim that the FBI had a “personal vendetta” against Trump’s ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn; and much more. 

“Last year, we told you about Sinclair Broadcast Group—a company which, if their acquisition of Tribune Media is approved, could soon own local stations reaching 72 percent of TV households,” said Oliver on his HBO program Sunday night. “In that story, we talked about Sinclair’s ‘must-runs’—stories that station managers are forced to include in their broadcasts, which often skew noticeably conservative.”

Can You Translate Emoji Faster than John Cena?

In new comedy Blockers, John Cena plays uptight father Mitchell, a man so out of touch with youth culture that he has no idea what the aubergine emoji actually means. And thinks the emoji combo for ‘sex’ means ‘You’re okay with me’.

In the film, his daughter makes a sex pact with two friends to lose their virginity on prom night. Mitchell discovers their plotting, along with fellow parents Lisa (Leslie Mann) and Hunter (Ike Barinholtz), whose daughters make up the final two-thirds of the action-seeking threesome.

But he doesn’t find translating what they mean easy – their entire text conversation consists of emoji language. After finally figuring it out, the parents make it their mission to thwart their daughters’ plans.

But how good at translating emoji is John Cena in real life? That’s what we wanted to know. So we put him to the test. We threw a bunch of pictorial phrases at the wrestler and actor, alongside emoji depictions of films and TV shows he’s appeared in. See how he got on – and test yourself at the same time – in the video above.


Blockers-John-Cena-Leslie-Mann-Ike-Barinholtz
Parents Mitchell (John Cena), Lisa (Leslie Mann) and Hunter (Ike Barinholtz) discover their daughters’ sex pact.

When Can I See ‘Blockers’?

Blockers hits screens in the UK on March 30 and in the US on April 6. You can read the official synopsis below:

Julie (Kathryn Newton), Kayla (Geraldine Viswanathan) and Samantha (Gideon Adlon) are three high school seniors who make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night. Lisa (Mann), Mitchell (Cena) and Hunter (Barinholtz) are three overprotective parents who flip out when they find out about their daughters’ plans. They soon join forces for a wild and chaotic quest to stop the girls from sealing the deal – no matter what the cost.

Blockers is directed by Pitch Perfect screenwriter Kay Cannon and also stars Gary Cole, Gina Gershon, Mozart in the Jungle actor Miles Robbins and Riverdale’s Graham Phillips.

“The happened. Then I said, I better have a ring on her finger because it’s the right thing to do, and I wanted to marry her anyway,” Stamos told PEOPLE exclusively in December. “So I called her parents to ask, and it was like, ‘You better!’”

John Oliver Opens Up About His Gay Bunny Book Outselling ‘Homophobe’ Mike Pence’s

NBC

When John Oliver announced the release of his own parody version of a new children’s book about the Pence family’s pet bunny, Marlon Bundo, even he didn’t think it would reach the top of Amazon’s best-seller list in the first 24 hours. And yet there it sits, ahead of not just Charlotte Pence’s book but also James Comey’s new memoir.

“I have no beef with his bunny,” Oliver told Seth Meyers on a victory lap of sorts Tuesday night. “The beef comes in regarding Michael Pence, who has a history of, let’s say, homophobic views.” He then added, “I just sounded like I was talking around it, but I was actually just saying the word of the thing that he emphatically is: a homophobe.”

When Meyers brought up the overwhelming success of the book, the proceeds of which are going to charities that benefit LGBTQ youth and AIDS research, Oliver revealed that just before the Late Night taping, he had received the latest sales numbers. “I’m sure HBO would find it absolutely hilarious they’re getting no money out of this,” he said.

Charlotte Pence Is Surprisingly Cool With John Oliver Trolling Her Bunny Book

The View

As of Tuesday morning, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents a Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo is still out-selling Marlon Bundo’s Day in the Life of the Vice President by Charlotte Pence on Amazon’s best-seller list. And the vice president’s daughter seems totally chill about it.

Charlotte and her mother Karen Pence were on Fox Business Network with Maria Bartiromo to promote their new book when the host casually brought up the fact that Oliver’s parody book about a gay bunny—revealed on his HBO show Sunday night—had just knocked James Comey’s upcoming memoir off of Amazon’s top spot.

“I mean, I think you know, imitation is the most sincere form of flattery in a way,” Charlotte said. “But also, in all seriousness, his book is contributing to charities that I think we can all get behind. We have two books giving to charities that are about bunnies so I’m all for it really.”

Star Wars’ John Boyega reveals they’ll start shooting Episode IX in July after delay

JOHN Boyega has confirmed that Star Wars: Episode IX will begin filming this summer.

It comes after the film was delayed due to the tragic passing of Carrie Fisher, who portrayed General Leia Organa in the space fantasy.

While promoting Pacific Rim: Uprising on The One Show, John Boyega revealed when he’ll be returning as Stormtrooper-turned-hero Finn.

Star Wars: Episode IX will see J.J. Abrams return to the directing chair after launching the trilogy with 2015’s The Force Awakens.

Hosts Angelica Bell and Matt Allwright quizzed John on plot secrets, but he revealed: “I don’t know a thing, but I know I start filming in July. They’re prepping and planning.

“JJ has a script, but I just haven’t read it yet.”

John also opened up about the intense security around the top secret scripts.

He explained: “You have to go to a room where the script is… I can’t lie, sometimes you get to bring it back home.”

Initial scripts for the as-yet-untitled ninth instalment were reported to heavily focus on Carrie Fisher’s iconic role of Leia Organa but her tragic passing in 2016 forced a change in direction.

Last year, a Vanity Fair feature quoted producer Kathleen Kennedy as saying: “She was having a blast… The minute she finished, she grabbed me and said, ‘I’d better be at the forefront of IX!’

Because Harrison [Ford] was front and centre on VII, and Mark is front and centre on VIII. She thought IX would be her movie. And it would have been.”

Producers have ruled out using CGI technology or another actress to bring back Princess Leia in future instalments, after a CGI cameo in Rogue One received mixed reviews from loyal fans.

“We want to assure our fans that Lucasfilm has no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher’s performance as Princess or General Leia Organa”, LucasFilm said in a statement.

Star Wars: Episode IX is scheduled for release in December, 2019.

EXCLUSIVE: John Cena Get Emotional Over Playing ‘Ferdinand’

John Cena is best known for being a brash star in the ring and on screen, so it’s quite a departure to see the wrestler-turned-actor get emotional over the role.

In a new clip from the exclusive Target release of Ferdinand (arriving on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD 3/13), Cena talks about seeing his the character — the bull Ferdinand — for the first time.

“If I see a match of myself or if I see a movie with myself — even though I may be playing a different character — I see myself,” Cena reflected. “The animation, you totally just lose it, and you see Ferdinand. It’s pretty cool.”

The wrestler also discusses how he was inspired by the animation. Director Carlos Saldanha called Cena “the perfect match” for the role, and praised how he embodied the character.


Ferdinand movie John Cena
Ferdinand is literally a bull in a china shop.

Ferdinand based on the beloved children’s book written 82 years ago about the tale of a gentle bull who prefers flowers and friendliness to fighting.

The animated feature is not only an interpration of the 1936 tale by author Munro Leaf, but also an homage to the country of Spain and its beautiful countryside.

John Oliver: Donald Trump Has More ‘Sexual Chemistry’ With Ivanka Than Jared Kushner

HBO

John Oliver is not a fan of Jared Kushner.

Last April, the Last Week Tonight host ran a lengthy segment on how the president’s son-in-law and his wife, Ivanka, are wildly unqualified for their positions as White House advisers and should not be seen as moderating influences on President Trump, concluding, “If they are the reason you are sleeping at night, you should probably still be awake.” Some months later, Oliver wished Kushner would be indicted by special prosecutor Robert Mueller in his ongoing Trump-Russia probe.

On Sunday night, while his late-night pal Jimmy Kimmel hosted the Academy Awards, Oliver dedicated a chunk of his HBO program to the past week of White House chaos, which “even by current White House standards was a mess.”

Lori Loughlin revealed how her husband handles fans who think she should have married John Stamos

Lori Loughlin revealed how her husband handles fans who think she should have married John Stamos


Lori Loughlin revealed how her husband handles fans who think she should have married John Stamos

Even though she’s been happily married for over two decades, a lot of Full House fans still hope that Lori Loughlin and John Stamos (aka Aunt Becky and Uncle Jesse) will end up together. The good news is it seems as though Loughlin and her actual husband think it’s all pretty funny.

In case you missed it, Stamos is expecting his first child with his fiancee, Caitlin McHugh. The two announced the news in December 2017, just two months after announcing their plans to wed. Loughlin is married to Mossimo Giannulli (who yes, is famous for the “Mossimo” brand) and the pair have two daughters together — Isabella and Olivia, both teens. It’s the second marriage for Loughlin, who divorced her first husband back in 1996.

“Whenever I post something with my husband, people will write comments,” she said to Entertainment  Tonight. “I laugh now, I think its funny. They’re like, ‘You should’ve married John!’”

Giannulli, thankfully, finds it all pretty funny, too.

“What’s even funnier though, is sometimes my husband will comment back and say, ‘Yeah, you should have!’ or something funny like that,” she continued. “Like, he’ll just pop off!”

At least fans will always be able to relive their chemistry in Full House reruns. And hey — sometimes they both appear on Fuller House, the uber-successful Netflix spinoff.

Loughlin is also more than supportive of all of Stamos’s big news and thinks he’s going to be an excellent father.

“I’m so excited for him,” she said, noting that he’s wanted a family for some time. “It’s long overdue and his wife is a really great girl. She’s very good for him. I’m happy that they found each other, and I’m really excited that he’s going to be a dad.”

Maybe Loughlin’s girls can babysit on occasion? How cute would that be?!

John Oliver Taunts Coal Baron After Judge Dismisses Defamation Suit: ‘Eat Sh*t, Bob!’

HBO

Last June, The Daily Beast broke the news that coal baron Robert Murray, the CEO of the country’s largest privately-owned coal company, Murray Energy Corporation, was suing John Oliver, HBO, Time Warner and the writers’ room of Last Week Tonight for defamation over a comedy segment that aired on the late-night program.

The Last Week Tonight segment in question took aim at Murray’s business practices, criticizing the company for allegedly neglecting its miners’ safety. At the end of the episode, Oliver welcomed a giant squirrel dubbed Mr. Nutter Butter on the show—a cheeky nod to the rumor that Murray started the coal company because a squirrel told him to—who said, “Hey Bob, just wanted to say, if you plan on suing, I do not have a billion dollars. But I do have a check for three acorns and eighteen cents,” said the person in the squirrel suit, before adding, “It’s made out to, ‘Eat shit, Bob!’ Memo line: ‘Kiss my Ass!’”

Well, a judge in Marshall County, West Virginia, dismissed the lawsuit on Wednesday. In Judge Jeffrey D. Cramer’s two-page ruling, he stated, “After thorough and careful consideration of the Defendants’ Motions for Dismissal, the Plaintiffs’ Response and the Defendants’ Reply to the same, as well as all arguments in support of and opposition to the Motion, I find the arguments set forth in the Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss for Failure to State a Claim and Reply well-founded, appropriate in this matter and will grant the same.”

John Oliver Praises Parkland Shooting Survivors for Taking on the Gun Lobby

HBO

Yes, John Oliver is back.

After several months off, the irascible Brit returned to the desk of Last Week Tonight for its fifth season premiere. He began by addressing the “heartbreaking events” of Parkland, Florida, wherein a MAGA hat-wearing 19-year-old armed with a legally-purchased AR-15 assault rifle targeted the students and faculty of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, taking 17 lives in a hail of gunfire. 

“These events are now so familiar, we basically automatically know how each side will play out: ‘thoughts and prayers,’ ‘fuck your thoughts and prayers,’ ‘it’s a mental health problem,’ ‘yeah, but it’s also a gun problem,’ and then someone says ‘now’s not the time to talk about gun control,’ and then everybody moves on until it inevitably happens again,” said Oliver.

Anthony Scaramucci and the Trump B-Team Plot ‘Revenge’ With John Kelly Faltering

When John Kelly joined the White House in July, one of his first orders of business was to cut off access for a motley crew of Donald Trump boosters and aides who, he and others felt, served only to distract the president.

With Kelly’s job appearing to be in peril, his old targets are now salivating at the prospect of his demise.

It’s the revenge of the Trump-world B-team. And it illustrates the degree to which the divisions and infighting within the Trump world’s broad orbit may be pushed out of public view but never, actually, go away.

Sean John at 20: Sean Combs on Longevity and Making a Difference

While his name may have changed more times than some people change cars, there has been at least one constant for Sean Combs over the past 20 years: The Sean John brand.
The label’s founder, born Sean John Combs, has been known as Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Diddy and now, Love. But for the hip-hop entrepreneur, they’re all just names that reflect different periods in his life. Call him what you will — his success speaks for itself.
His earnings in 2017 alone, according to Forbes, were $ 130 million and his net worth is estimated at $ 820 million, edging out even Jay Z, who is worth a mere $ 810 million.
Not bad for someone who dropped out of business school in his sophomore year. Now, at 48, Combs has a multipronged career that covers not only fashion but music, TV production, athletes’ beverages and vodka. And, of course, he travels with his own entourage – at his WWD shoot, 17 people arrived well ahead of the star. Given all his activities, getting face time with Combs can be a challenge, hence the reason Sean John’s vice president of design arrived with storyboards and line sheets for the holiday 2018 collection, which he

FASHION UPDATE:

John Stamos Marries Pregnant Fiancee Caitlin McHugh: Details!

Cue the white doves! John Stamos and pregnant fiancee Caitlin McHugh tied the knot in an intimate ceremony on Saturday, February 3.

The couple tied the knot at Stamos’ Beverly Hills, California, home in front of family and friends, Entertainment Tonight reports. In pics posted by ET, the bride wore a white strapless gown with a full tulle skirt, while the Fuller House star wore a black suit, white shirt and a black bow tie.

Stamos, 54, asked for 32-year-old McHugh’s hand in October 2017 at Disneyland. Good Morning America host Lara Spencer revealed the details of the proposal shortly after.

“He put together some of the most romantic moments from Disney and Pixar animation [in a video],” she explained of the Full House alum. “And then he ended it with Sebastian from The Little Mermaid saying, ‘Just ask the girl’ to John.”

The Scream Queens actor opened up about the happy news during his appearance on Extra later that week. “It’s been a long time and I’ve always been pretty vocal about wanting a family and wanting to be married, and everyone is like, ‘Why can’t you? You can do it,’” he explained. “The truth is, I just wasn’t the best me and I wasn’t going to attract someone like Caitlin. I had to work on myself and put in some time.”

Us Weekly confirmed the model’s pregnancy last month, and she showed off her baby bump at the SAG Awards on January 21. Stamos was photographed kissing and caressing McHugh’s belly while the couple walked the red carpet together.

The Grandfather actor gushed over his leading lady while speaking to Entertainment Tonight in December. “It would be a tragedy if I didn’t have children and I finally found the right woman — the perfect woman,” he said. “I know my parents are smiling down. I know they would love her. She’s a gentle, kind, graceful soul who would be a good mother.”

Stamos and McHugh have been dating since 2016. The ER alum was previously married to Rebecca Romijn from 1998 to 2005.

Thieves Steal $165,000 in Jewelry From John Stamos’ Fiancée

(BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.) — Police say burglars stole $ 165,000 in jewelry from a room at the Beverly Hills Hotel that was occupied by actor John Stamos’ fiancee.

A police statement says Caitlin McHugh was away from her room Friday evening when a crook or crooks got in and took several items of jewelry.

It’s unclear how the burglars got inside. There’s no indication of forced entry.

The theft comes amid reports that the actress, who’s pregnant, is marrying Stamos this weekend.

A message seeking comment from Stamos’ publicist wasn’t immediately returned Saturday.

Stamos stars in Netflix’s “Fuller House” and spent part of last year with The Beach Boys as a drummer. McHugh has had guest spots on “The Vampire Diaries” and “NCIS: Los Angeles.”

John Varvatos Men’s Fall 2018

John Varvatos went “rogue” for his fall show, eschewing the official fashion calendar to present on the eve of Grammys weekend in New York.
He selected an old synagogue on the Lower East Side and filled the front row with musicians and executives in town for the big event at Madison Square Garden: all three Jonas brothers, Thomas Rhett, Young Paris and Iggy Azalea among them.
It was ironic then that this season, Varvatos showed less of a rock ’n’ roll aesthetic than in the past. “I never think of us as rock ’n’ roll,” the designer said backstage before the show. “That’s other people’s perception. But it does have an edge to it.”
Instead, the designer set out to “change it up,” with a show he titled “John Varvatos 2.0” that “explored the notion of looking back to look forward,” according to the show notes.
He turned to his greatest hits over the past 17 years — textured fabrics, handknit sweaters, hand-finished leathers and pumped-up trainers — modernized in terms of silhouette and materials — to offer his take on the street “and how we’re living today.”
Despite the slightly oversized proportions, the collection was not streetwear — intentionally. “I appreciate streetwear but I’m

Inspired by MLK, John Lewis Continues to Look for “Good Trouble”

John Lewis is always looking for “good trouble.”  At 77, the Atlanta congressman who has served in the House for 30 years remains one of the fiercest lions in the fight for racial justice and equality. He rallies scores of fellow legislators for a sit-in on gun violence, leads an impromptu march of 1,000 comic book fans during the super-popular San Diego Comic-Con to promote civil rights awareness, or continues to speak out on issues – most recently, Donald Trump’s recent derogatory remarks regarding Haiti, El Salvador and Africa and the administration’s denial of protections for undocumented immigrants brought to the US as children.

His life-long activism inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr., the slain civil rights leader the nation is honoring today, Lewis’ focus, among other concerns, has been fighting the divisive messaging and policies of the Trump White House.  Lewis said of the president’s latest invective during his Sunday morning appearance on ABC’s “This Week”: ” I think he is a racist. We have to stand up. We have to speak up and not try to sweep it under the rug,”  In fact, he will not vote on federal funding necessary to avert a government shutdown by week’s end “until we have a deal on DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).” Moreover, he will be among Democrats boycotting the Jan. 30 State of the Union address.

For more than a half century of tackling such battles, the resolve of this Troy, Alabama native and son of sharecroppers continues to be driven by the example of MLK’s unwavering nonviolent activism. He shares a long, rich history with the iconic civil rights leader: ” I remember when I was 17, writing a letter to Dr. King. I wanted to enter a particular college, and they wouldn’t let black people attend. So Dr. King wrote me back and sent me a round trip Greyhound bus ticket, inviting me to come to Montgomery, Alabama to meet with him.”  During that meeting, the life of “The Boy From Troy ” –  as King called him – was changed forever.

At the age of 23, Lewis, chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), an organization that engaged students to participate in sit-ins, freedom rides and other activities during the Civil Rights Movement, was the youngest architect and keynote speaker of the historic 1963 March on Washington, where King delivered his powerful, nation-changing  I Have A Dream speech.  A year later, President Lyndon Johnson would sign the Civil Rights Act of 1964, putting an end to legal segregation of public institutions and accommodations.

The young, unyielding organizer was also among those who led more than 600 peaceful, orderly demonstrators across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama in 1965 in a protest for voting rights in one of the bastions of Jim Crow. As such, he was wounded in a brutal attack from Alabama state troopers that became known as “Bloody Sunday.”  The efforts of King, along with Lewis, civil rights leaders and protesters, proved critical in passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which ensured the protection of the franchise for all Americans.

 

Lewis, who received the Earl G. Graves Sr. Vanguard Award at the inaugural BLACK ENTERPRISE Black Men Xcel Summit last September, spoke with BE’s Editor-In-Chief Derek T. Dingle about continuing the fight in today’s environment.

You’ve always been at the forefront of fighting for the advancement of the disenfranchised. How do you view activism in today’s political climate?

We cannot deny the fact that we’ve come a distance. We have made some unbelievable progress. I tell you that despite of all of the progress that we’ve made, the scars and stains of racism are still deeply embedded into American society. What happened in Charlottesville, Virginia [at the white supremacist rally last summer] made me want to cry because they want to take us back. We’ve come too far, and we cannot go back.

You talked about Charlottesville and the rise of white nationalists and Neo-Nazis. What can be down to address this activity?

When we see white nationalists put down people of color and salute like Hitler, we have to do something. I say to young people, when you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to say something, to do something, to speak up and speak out. We must educate all of our young people, and it doesn’t matter if they’re black or white, Latino, Asian American or native American. I think it will be the young people that get us there. They will lead us through the 21st Century.

So you find that more young people are taking a stand? 

These young people have been reading their literature, the history, and watching the film footage of what happened years ago. They don’t want to go through that, and they’re determined that they will stand up, speak up and speak out and try to make our country and society better for the generation yet unborn.

.You’ve developed the graphic novel series, March. Tell us why you decided to share your life and the history of the Civil Rights Movement using this platform.

In 1958, I read a comic book called Martin Luther king Jr. and the Montgomery Story. It was 16 pages, cover to cover. It sold for 10 cents. Dr. King helped edit this book. It told the story of Montgomery, of people walking more than 381 days rather than ride segregated buses. That little book inspired me. I remember much earlier in my life, when I was 15, I went down to the public library in the little town of Troy, Alabama, trying to get a library card, and the librarian said, “The library’s for whites only and not for coloreds.” So I never went back to that library until 1998. By that time, I was in Congress and I’m there for a book signing of my first book, Walking With The Wind.

It’s important for our young people, our children, to be able to read the stories, the tales of what happened and how it happened. They, too, can be inspired to stand up and get in good trouble.

Do you see the groundswell of activism translating into politics and the emergence of a new generation of leaders? How will it impact the 2018 mid-term elections?

I think we are going to see more young people, especially more young women, organizing, mobilizing, running for office at the local level, state level and federal level. We will see young men and women coming together with the necessary sources to combat forces in 2018 and Congress is going to look different – not just the House but also the Senate.

In the past, black business pioneers like A.G. Gaston and H.J. Russell played a role in the Civil Rights Movement. For example, they were responsible for bailing out protesters after they were arrested in marches and sit-ins. I like to gain your perspective on the role for black entrepreneurs today.

You’re so right that another generation of black business leaders played a role. It was not just the big ones like A. G. Gaston in Birmingham, Alabama, some realtor or some contractor but even the mom and pops, beauty shop owners, barber shop owners helped bail people out of jail, feed people in small towns and rural communities in Atlanta, Nashville and Montgomery. We have advanced so much further. People pooling resources can use the resources to make more than just a down payment on getting us where we need to go. When the movie Selma came out, a large number of minority businesspeople raised money to make tickets available for young people and students to learn from that, And supporting organizations like the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and the NAACP, is so important. It is a must. There’s a role for the African American business community to play.

What will it take to galvanize people to vote? is there a message that will get more people fired up to go to the polls?

I truly believe the message must be very simple. We got to convince people that the vote is precious, that it is the most powerful nonviolent tool we have in a democratic society and we got to use it, If we don’t use it, we’re going to lose it because there are forces that want to take us much further back. We commemorate and celebrate the march from Selma to Montgomery, the March on Washington but we got to do more than celebrate.
