Kylie Jenner Stars as a Goddess in Boyfriend Travis Scott’s ‘Stop Trying to Be God’ Music Video

Just three days after the release of Astroworld, Travis Scott dropped the visual for “Stop Trying to Be God,” and it features a star-studded cast.

In the video directed by Dave Meyers, Scott’s girlfriend Kylie Jenner makes a cameo covered in gold paint.

The Kylie Cosmetics founder, 20, is then seen again at the end of the video holding a lamb, who mouths “stop trying to be God.”

Musician James Blake, 29, also makes an appearance.

The video is packed with biblical references from Scott, 26, walking among sheep, to baptizing fans that seemingly turn into mini versions of himself, to acting as God in heaven all while the world goes up in flames.

Although not pictured, Kid Cudi, 34, can be heard humming as Stevie Wonder, 68, plays the harmonica.

Hours after dropping the music video, Scott shared a sweet photo of the couple’s 6-month-old daughter Stormi Webster wearing an Astroworld onesie.

“Come home my baby ready to rock and roll. !!!!” Scott captioned the shot, which doesn’t show Stormi’s entire face.

Stormi isn’t the only one showing support for the rapper.

In addition to being Scott’s muse in the music video, Jenner wore an Astroworld t-shirt on the night of its release at Lollapalooza.

“You didn’t have to go this hard baby,” Jenner captioned the post of herself posing in the t-shirt paired with black pants.

“Astroworld just dropped and it’s the craziest ride of my life,” Jenner added.

On the album, Scott references both Jenner and Stormi.

“Passes to my daughter, I’ma show her what it took/Baby mama cover Forbes/got these other bitches shook,” Scott raps on “Sicko Mode.”

“We just rocked Coachella, I gave her of half of the check/It was good sex, I didn’t mention to the net/Didn’t pass the loud, that was out of respect,” Scott said on “Skeletons,” recounting the early stages of he and Jenner’s romance.

The couple have been dating since April 2017, when they connected at Coachella. They welcomed daughter Stormi on Feb. 1.

Last week, Jenner joined the rapper at Lollapalooza in Chicago to celebrate his album launch. The couple was seen cuddling while an exclusive group of friends and fans listened to the album.

In videos circulating on social media, Jenner can be seen giving Scott a hug as they swayed to the music. Later in the night, the two were also spotted sharing a sweet kiss.

Are ‘Counting On’ Stars John David Duggar And Abbie Grace Burnett Playing Matchmaker For Jeremiah Duggar?

Counting On star John David Duggar and his fiancée Abbie Grace Burnett set a Duggar family record last month with the quickest courtship so far. There was less than a month between their courtship and engagement announcements, and now fans are wondering if the couple is trying to play matchmaker for their siblings.

After John David and Abbie Grace posted a pic on Instagram earlier this week with his brother Jeremiah and her twin sisters, fans are losing their minds over the romantic possibilities between the Duggar and Burnett kids, as well as the chances of John David and Abbie Grace having their own set of twins.

“Wait, so there are twins on Abbie’s side as well as the two sets on JD’s? They just became front-runners for the first couple to have twins of their own,” wrote a fan on Reddit.

Jill Duggar and Anna Duggar also commented on the pic, with Jill writing “Nice!” and Anna adding, “Y’all have fun!”

Some of John David and Abbie’s followers were also crushing on 19-year-old Jeremiah — who also has a twin brother, Jedidiah — and wanted to know if he was single and looking. There are currently three boys in the Duggar family who are single and of courting age, the 19-year-old twins and 18-year-old Jason. 28-year-old Jana Duggar, John David’s twin sister, is the only single Duggar woman who is old enough to court.

After their whirlwind engagement, there is a lot of excitement in John David and Abbie Grace’s future. As In Touch Weekly reports, they announced their courtship on June 26th, and by July 25th they were engaged.

The Duggar family made the engagement announcement, and they said in a statement that John David and Abbie Grace are a wonderful match, and they make a beautiful couple. They added that they love weddings and can’t wait for this one.

A post shared by johnandabbie (@johnandabbie) on

After knowing of each other for years, 28-year-old John David and 26-year-old Abbie Grace really got know each other when he flew to Oklahoma for a church event earlier this summer. Before they started courting, John David had talked about being a “Bachelor to the Rapture,” but once he connected with Abbie Grace, he changed his tune.

Because they are quite a bit older than the other Duggars who have courted, it appears that the rules were a bit more relaxed for John David and Abbie Grace, with the couple allegedly going out unchaperoned and displaying a bit of PDA during a trip to Walmart.

To find out more about John David Duggar and Abbie Grace Burnett, plus get an inside look at the rest of the married Duggar kids, tune into new episodes of Counting On, which air Monday nights on TLC.

Elite getaways the world’s biggest stars visit to relax

Have you ever wanted to experience how the other half live? Have you always wanted to scrap your yearly camping trip and opt for something a bit more fabulous? Do you swoon over your favorite celebs’ vacation Instagram stories? Well, you’re not alone. Thanks to social media, it’s now easier than ever to compare your lives to those of your favorite famous faces, which can often make you feel a little down in the dumps. Especially when it comes to your vacation. Thankfully, you’ll be happy to know that you can live like the rich and famous (at least for a week or two) if you check out the elite getaways the world’s biggest stars visit to relax.

St. Barts

If you fancy your chances of bumping into the likes of Beyonce, Leonardo DiCaprio, Martha Stewart or Ellen DeGeneres on your walk from your room to your breakfast table, you might want to book your flights to St. Barts. This Caribbean island gives you a taste of the Caribbean while giving you all of the culture and the food of France. From the beautiful golden sands to the yacht-filled harbor and the designer shops, St. Barts is constantly teeming with celebs who are looking for a little R&R. Could you be joining them?

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Known more commonly as Cabo, Cabo San Lucas is one of the most famous destinations in Mexico – and not just with college students on their Spring breaks! When they’re not filming the latest blockbuster, recording a hit album, or taking the mic as a television host, some of the biggest names in Hollywood make their way down to Mexico to embrace local culture. And when we say embrace the local culture, we really mean laze on the beach, drink margaritas, and eat yummy Mexican food.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Dubai is known as the playground for the rich and famous, and every year thousands of celebs with cash to splash make their way to the United Arab Emirates for a spending spree. From the ridiculously overpriced (yet fabulous) hotel rooms to the incredible skyscrapers that feature Michelin-star restaurants, and the desert which is just begging to be surfed, Dubai has everything a rich celeb could possibly want. Yet, with more and more non-famous folk increasingly making their way to Dubai, it’s becoming even more accessible for the average Joe.

Aspen, Colorado

If you’re not fond of the warm weather and need to take a break just like Sofia Vergara and Kate Hudson, you might want to consider Aspen as your next vacation destination. Located in the snowy hills of Colorado, Aspen is the perfect place to grab your skis or your snowboard and unwind from the daily grind. Finish your day off with a little Apres-Ski and keep your eyes peeled for some of the famous faces of the world.

Necker Island, British Virgin Islands

Okay, this one is a bit more elite – but if you can wangle a room here, you know you’ve made it! As the private island of the Virgin business mogul, Richard Branson, Necker Island is an elite island that only a few have been able to enjoy. Guests are chosen by Branson himself, and those who visit might even have the pleasure of dining with the businessman himself. In the past, the Obamas, Kate Winslet, Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford have all enjoyed the incredible beaches.

If you’re looking to get away for a relaxing vacation, you might also be looking for something a bit more impressive than your average vacation. This is why you need to take a leaf out of your favorite celebrities books and travel to where the elite hang out…

Porn Stars’ Instagram Accounts Targeted By Hackers: ‘I Was Locked Out’

Aluxum

Social media dependency has grown exponentially over the last decade. The majority of online adults have at least one social media account, if not more. In this virtual world we’re making friends, buying products, even interacting with our favorite brands and companies in a way that feels very personable. As consumers we want to feel as if we’re making a choice, buying what we have ties to, which makes social media imperative for many entrepreneurs—including porn stars.

A large part of an adult performer’s job consists of managing social media, both to boost future bookings and to create a connection with fans. Whether piracy or tube sites are to blame, one thing’s clear: there’s not much money for performers following a traditional porn star path. To be successful, one must build a loyal following—engaging fans via social media to sell products, cam shows, site subscriptions, and strip club tour dates. Some of the women noted a greater conversion rate on Instagram when compared to other platforms, making it a favored marketing tool despite the social media platform’s conservative stance on posting nudity. According to online statistics, Instagram drives the “most engagement per post compared to any social network—84 times more than Twitter, 54 times more than Pinterest and 10 times more than Facebook.”

For many sex workers, Instagram has become a crucial component to generating income. When an account is deleted or locked it’s not just an inconvenience, it’s financially impactful. Alana Luv, the AVN 2017 Nominee for Hottest MILF, had been hacked and lost access to her Instagram account not once, but twice. Luv says the person who snatched her account made changes to her name and settings, among other things. The second time was worse.

Lena Dunham, Joshua Jackson & Sia Among Stars Protesting Migrant Crisis in Texas: ‘Together We Rise’

While attending a protest in Tornillo, Texas — a city along the U.S.-Mexico border — a group of celebrities came together to voice their outrage over the thousands of migrant children who have been separated from their parents after crossing the Southern U.S. border illegally.

“We came to Tornillo, Texas, to show our solidarity with the families who have been separated, the children who are alone and the parents who are grieving and the undocumented Americans who are losing more than I can fathom,” Lena Dunham wrote alongside a group shot of many famous faces, including Amber Heard, Bella Thorne, Mira Sorvino and Sia.

In the group photo, many of the celebrities are carrying signs protesting the crisis. “This is about humanity,” read one of the signs, while another proclaimed “no one is illegal.”

“Thank you, Tornillo, for showing us a warm border welcome and reminding us that together we rise,” Dunham added.

Sharing his own photo from the protest, actor Joshua Jackson wrote, “This was 10:00 am in Tornillo, Texas. We were standing outside the detention facility where hundreds of children are being held in tents. It was already near 100 F out there.”

“These are not summer camps. These are not acceptable conditions for children. This is a humanitarian crisis of our own making,” he continued, adding the hashtags “ #stopseparatingfamilies#endfamilydetention.”

Imploring her fans to donate to Voto Latino, a civic organization that helped facilitate the peaceful protest, Sia also announced that she would be matching all donations up to $ 100,000.

Westworld actress Evan Rachel Wood also participated in a separate event, the Break Bread Not Families rally, which was held in McAllen, Texas, in front of a detention center.

Since May, Trump’s “zero tolerance policy” has resulted in 2,342 children being removed from their parents who crossed the Southern border and face prosecution for illegal entry.

Amid a massive backlash, Trump signed an executive order reversing the position on Wednesday.

On Saturday, the Department of Homeland Security said the U.S. government had reunited 522 migrant children who were separated from adults, saying in a statement outlining the reunification process that the government “knows the location of all children in its custody and is working to reunite them with their families.” 

While waiting for the parents to complete their deportation hearings, children will continue to be held in custody. The families will then either be reunited before getting deported, or after the parent is released from detention and applies to be the child’s sponsor.

While Trump’s executive order said the government would maintain a “zero tolerance” policy for illegal entry into the country, a senior U.S. official told The Washington Post on Thursday that Border Patrol agents have been told to stop referring parents with children for prosecution.

10 ‘Drag Race’ Queens We Need To See On ‘All Stars 4’

We’re one week away from crowning the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10. But after getting two seasons back-to-back, we’re about to go through some major Drag Race withdrawals. The best cure for our post-Ru blues, though, is to simply look to the future in anticipation and excitement. And what better way than to predict which queens will bless our screens when they return for All Stars 4.

We’re naturally hoping the fourth season of the fan-favorite franchise is a little more All Stars 2 (one of the best seasons of Drag Race of all time) and a little less All Stars 3 (#JusticeForShangela). So we’ve taken the liberty of combining a list of the 10 queens we need to see enter the workroom doors once more in order to make it the best All Stars season yet. (Editor’s Note: Miss Vanjie must return for Season 11, so the iconic queen will not appear on this list. But she’s always walking backward through our hearts.)

Kim Chi


Kim Chi

Season: 8 (Runner-Up)
Reason: Kim Chi may not have been the best dancer or actress — in fact, she could barely walk in heels — but the Korean queen made it all the way to the finale anyway. And that’s because she turned out some of the best looks that the show has ever seen. Kim also has a great sense of humor, which popped up a few times during Season 8, but has since found a place to truly shine on social media. Her unique looks and loveable personality already make her worthy of a crown, and if she has improved in other areas, she could truly chop suey the competition once and for all.
Chances of Appearing: High. She’s popular in the Drag Race fandom and has no reason to turn down the higher booking fees that come with an All Stars appearance.

Latrice Royale


Latrice Royale

Season: 4 (4th Place/Miss Congeniality), All Stars (7th/8th)
Reason: This is a dark thought, but there’s a chance that newer members of the Drag Race fandom don’t know who Latrice is, and that is not the kind of world I want to live in. Latrice is one of the most beloved queens in the history of the series, and she has the title of Miss Congeniality to prove it. But at this point, Season 4 was over six years ago and her appearance on the original All Stars was cut far too short. The children need to know the magic of the large and in charge, chunky yet funky queen and she deserves to appear in a season of All Stars that doesn’t pair the queens up for the entire season.
Chances of Appearing: Low. Sadly, producers are likely to cast queens who never appeared on an All Stars. But if Season 1 winner Bebe Zahara Benet can return, surely we can recycle an All Stars Season 1 queen as well.

Miz Cracker


Miz Cracker on &#039;Drag Race&#039;

Season: 10 (5th Place)
Reason: A huge fan favorite throughout Season 10, fans were less than pleased when Miz Cracker was forced to sashay away right before making it into the final four. But the second she was eliminated, viewers eased their broken hearts by campaigning for her to appear on the next iteration of All Stars. The Jewish Barbie on bath salts seemed like a frontrunner from day one of Season 10, but her penchant for overthinking eventually got her into trouble. If she’s learned from her mistakes after watching herself on the show, she’s easily a contender for the crown.
Chances of Appearing: High. If Season 10 is included in the next round of All Stars, then Cracker needs to be a part of it.

Ongina


Ongina

Season: 1 (5th Place)
Reason: There seems to be at least one queen from the early years of Drag Race on every season of All Stars, and Ongina is the contestant that fans have been calling for. The Filipino queen made history when she came out as HIV-positive in an emotional episode of Season 1, but her talent extends far beyond her diagnosis. Ongina is known for her fashionable looks and for being the first queen to walk the runway without a wig. (Sorry, Sasha.) It’s time for new fans of the series to get to know the beloved bald queen.
Chances of Appearing: High. If they continue to include an OG queen on All Stars, they should give the fans they one they’ve been asking for.

Gia Gunn


Gia Gunn

Season: 6 (10th Place)
Reason: When Gia Gunn hopped off the boat like fresh tilapia and entered the competition on Season 6, Drag Race was never the same. The queen’s hilarious catchphrases (both intentional and unintentional) were a hilarious addition to the workroom. But after exiting the show, Gia came out as trans and has since been an ambassador for the transgender community. It would be fantastic to see her compete again, to get those hilarious one-liners while seeing how she’s grown both as a drag queen and as a woman.
Chances of Appearing: Low. While her time on Drag Race was nothing short of iconic, her early exit may mean she’ll have to wait until at least All Stars 5 or 6 to shine again.

Valentina


Drag Race Season 9 Valentina mask

Season: 9 (7th Place)
Reason: As one of the most polarizing queens in Drag Race history, Valentina is the type of contestant that All Stars was made for. After instantly becoming a frontrunner in Season 9 for her gorgeous looks and mesmerizing smile, Valentina fell from grace when she infamously wore a mask during a lip sync for her life. She didn’t know the words to the song and the moment was one of the most shocking in Drag Race history. Following her elimination, rumors swirled that Val was a diva at events and was rude to her fellow cast members. It may have been an epic fall from grace, but she still has a giant fanbase, so a return to the competition could be the perfect way to solidify her image, one way or the other.
Chances of Appearing: High. This is a no-brainer. The controversial queen must return.

Adore Delano


rupaul drag race adore delano

Season: 6 (Runner-Up), All Stars 2 (9th/Quit)
Reason: Adore is one of the most popular contestants in all of Drag Race history, not to mention one of the most successful. (The party queen is one of the best-selling recording artists to come out of the show.) So, naturally, fans were devastated when Adore quit All Stars 2 in the second episode, unable to handle the pressure of harsh critiques. During the reunion, Adore explained that she was going through a hard time in her personal life and wasn’t mentally strong enough to deal with the competition again. RuPaul gave her an open invitation to return though, and fans are desperately hoping she takes it.
Chances of Appearing: Unclear. Producers would surely love to have her back, but does she feel ready to walk into the workroom once more?

Jasmine Masters


Jasmine Masters

Season: 7 (12th Place)
Reason: Jasmine Masters struggled during her original run on Season 7 of Drag Race and also faced horrific racist abuse on Twitter while the show was airing. While most people were quick to write her off, she has since gained a huge fanbase on social media thanks to becoming a meme queen and hosting hilarious rants on Instagram Live. It would be great to see her in the competition again now that fans realize how funny she is, and perhaps she could enter with a more positive attitude (making her more willing to throw on a beard, if that’s what RuPaul asks).
Chances of Appearing: Low. Seeing as Jasmine released a video in 2016 announcing that RuPaul’s Drag Race has f–ked up drag,” it’s not very likely that producers are dying to have her back.

Shea Couleé


Shea Coulee

Season: 9 (3rd/4th)
Reason: Drag Race fans love to declare that a queen was robbed, and they shouted it from the rooftops when Shea didn’t become the winner of Season 9. The Chicago queen won a whopping four challenges throughout her time on the show, the highest of any queen on her season, but fell victim to the revamped finale format which found the final four lip syncing for the crown. Queens return to All Stars to get their redemption and Shea definitely deserves a second shot at taking the title
Chances of Appearing: High. She didn’t want to appear on All Stars 3 because it filmed only months after Season 9 aired, but now that she’s had some time to process things, she’s a likely bet to return.

Monique Heart


RuPaul&#039;s Drag Race Season 10 Monique Heart

Season: 10 (8th Place)
Reason: Facts are facts, America, and the fact is we need more Monique Heart in our lives. The ooh-ahh-ahh sensation lit up the screen in Season 10 with her larger-than-life personality and hilarious quotable moments. And, frankly, she never got the respect from the judges that she deserved. The card dress from the first episode definitely should have been more than safe, and Monique struggled to get in the good graces of the judges ever since. She deserved a main challenge win and we deserve to hear more of her amazing quips and confessionals.
Chances of Appearing: Unclear. While queens who placed higher in Season 10 are more likely to get a shot at All Stars first, RuPaul admitted on her podcast that she didn’t realize how funny the queen was until watching the show back. Even Ru thinks Monique deserves another chance, so let’s make it happen.

Bravo’s ‘Top Chef’ Stars Celebrate Juneteenth at the James Beard House

Each year, the James Beard House hosts over 200 dinners featuring select world-class chefs who prepare unique tasting menus for guests. However, on Monday, four famed African American cooks from Bravo’s hit reality competition series Top Chef took over the esteemed Beard House kitchen for an unprecedented Juneteenth celebration that honored African American food and culture.

The private dinner was held in New York City at The James Beard Foundation, a nonprofit culinary arts organization named in honor of prolific food writer and cookbook author James Beard, a.k.a. the “Dean of American Cookery.” It was dedicated to the observance of the Juneteenth Independence Day, a nationally recognized holiday that marked the end of slavery for African Americans in Texas and other parts of the South on June 19, 1865. Although slaves were legally free after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, it took two years before the news traveled to all parts of the country. As a result, African American slaves were still working on plantations as late as 1865, while 250,000 people were still enslaved in Texas until Union soldiers traveled to Galveston, Texas, to announce that all enslaved people were free.

At the dinner, the chefs presented a collaborative menu inspired by black southern cuisine and their own roots. In addition to paying homage to his ancestors, Chef Chris Scott said the event allowed him to tell “a story of our people through food.” Some of the dishes he made included hoecakes, which date back to the 18th century, and scrapple, a dish that his grandmother used to make consisting of hog offal. However, it was his grandmother’s famous honey butter biscuits that won the night. “In a million years, my grandmother would have never thought that her biscuits would be served at the Beard House on this kind of night,” he told guests following the dinner.

“A lot of chefs are turning back to their roots, especially black folks,” Scott told Black Enterprise in an interview. “All of us are classically trained in French style, Spanish cuisine, and a lot of European cooking methods, but now we’ve come to a point where we’re turning the curve and we’re coming back home, cooking the food of our ancestors, cooking the food that we grew up on.”

Chef Adrienne Cheatham told BE that cooking Juneteenth-inspired dishes at the prestigious James Beard House was an honor that affirms that soul food deserves the same recognition as other acclaimed fares around the world. “James Beard House is acknowledging Juneteenth. That’s a holiday that has been big among black people for years, but it’s never been recognized by a major institution,” said the Top Chef season 15 runner-up.

Chef Brother Luck, the owner of Four By Brother Luck in Colorado, called the Juneteenth dinner a celebration of diversity. “As someone who’s worked my way up from the bottom, it’s really special to be here tonight.” He also touched on his own Cajun and Creole heritage, saying, “If you look at southern cuisine and Cajun and Creole soul food, it was about making the best of what you had and adapting.”

Check out the Juneteenth dishes in the slideshow below.

Porn Stars Are Furious With Rudy Giuliani: ‘A Storm’s a-Coming’

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

Look at her. Look at the way she dresses. Blonde hair, fake boobs. And she’s in THAT business. A woman like that isn’t credible.

Adult actresses often endure this type of discrimination—with many even accepting it as the norm. When Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, implied that Stormy Daniels’ moral character should be determined by her looks and occupation, he echoed the very issues so many generations of women have gone up against.

Asked if he believed Daniels’ account of her alleged affair with Trump during a Tel Aviv speaking engagement, Giuliani made a show of disgust, saying, “Stormy Daniels? Pfft. Look at her.” Off-camera, a woman’s voice can be heard reprimanding him: “You have to respect on this stage every woman.”

27 Top Black YouTube Stars From Around the World You Need to Follow

When it comes to the most viewed and popular content, it doesn’t matter how many photos or clever memes you choose to share, video reigns supreme, and many love the options that video-streaming provides. Many of us like to see things live and in action, and the stats don’t lie: According to Google, black millennials “have more than doubled their mobile watch time on YouTube in the last two years,” and they watch “73% more YouTube on mobile per person than the general population of the same age.”

The platform has diversified since its inception in 2005, but the issue of diversity on the platform, as with other popular media, remains a challenge. According to the same Google statistics, users of color want more inclusive ads and want to see themselves represented, and more would like to see brands better represent diversity in their ads. Here’s a list of 27 black YouTube stars, some on the come-up and others already bankable.

27 Top Black YouTube Stars

Jay-Z Court Order Called ‘Celebrity Witch Hunt’ By Rap Star’s Lawyer

Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter has a court order to appear in Manhattan federal district court today to testify about his joint venture with Iconix Brand Group Inc., which is under a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) probe. Attorney’s representing the hip-hop icon, however, accused the SEC of going on a “celebrity hunt” by demanding the rapper answer unlimited questioning about his business dealings.

Iconix Brand Group—which acquired Rocawear, the apparel brand that Carter founded in 1999—is being investigated for allegedly violating federal securities laws in its financial reporting. Although Carter sold Rocawear to Iconix back in 2007 for $ 204 million in intangible assets, it still maintains a joint venture with Jay-Z’s company Roc Nation, according to Iconix’s most recent financial filing. Roc Nation hasn’t received royalties from the partnership since 2015. The SEC is seeking Carter’s testimony on the deal to investigate inconsistencies in Iconix’s reporting, but Jay-Z’s reps argue that he should not be involved in the case at all since he had no role in Iconix’s financial reporting.

“We are aware that the SEC is seeking information on Iconix’ s financial reporting. Mr. Carter had no role in that reporting or Iconix’ s other actions as a public company. Mr. Carter is a private citizen who should not be involved in this matter,” reads a statement from Roc Nation provided to NPR last week.

In a court filing on Monday, Carter’s lawyer wrote that he has agreed to testify before the regulatory agency for just one full day of questioning, rather than for multiple days as determined and demanded by the SEC. “The SEC continues to insist on meeting Mr. Carter in person for an unlimited period of time,” wrote attorney Alex Spiro in a legal memorandum. Spiro argued that the request “imposes unreasonable burdens on Mr. Carter” as he prepares for his upcoming 4:44 tour. The attorney also questioned the intent behind the SEC’s demands and argued that the upshot has turned “into a celebrity hunt.” Jay-Z opposes the SEC’s demand based on his concern that open-ended, in-person testimony “is driven more by governmental fascination with celebrity and headlines than by any proper investigative purpose,” added Spiro.

The SEC initially issued two subpoenas for Jay-Z’s testimony in November 2017 and February 2018. The Brooklyn-born rapper neglected to comply both times, leading the SEC to file an enforcement action ordering him to show up in court for a hearing on May 8. However, refusal to comply with the subpoenas may have given him an advantage since he can now challenge the scope of information sought by the subpoenas during the hearing.

“This allows Jay-Z to argue, and a neutral judge to rule, that the boundaries of the subpoena should be narrowed considerably,” writes entertainment attorney Allen Secretov. “This route would practically not have been available if the investigation was kept out of the court system by Jay-Z’s initial compliance.”

SEC attorneys are scheduled to file a response on Tuesday right before the hearing.

Why Adam Rippon, Lindsey Vonn and More Winter Olympics Stars Skipped the White House Visit With Trump

President Donald Trump hosted American athletes who competed at the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics at the White House on Friday — but some of the PyeongChang games’ most famous faces opted to skip the ceremony.

Ice skater Adam Rippon, skier Lindsey Vonn and snowboarder Chloe Kim are among the marquee names who skipped the trip to Washington. Five American Olympians — including cross-country skier Jessie Diggins, freestyle skier David Wise and biathlete Maddie Phaneuf — made the trip to Washington to meet with Congressional leaders on Wednesday about their climate change advocacy work with Protect Our Winters Alliance. But they won’t attend the White House celebration because they made the “Congressional briefing their priority,” a spokesperson for the athletes told USA Today.

Some athletes cited Trump’s politics as their reason for skipping the White House meeting, while others said they had scheduling conflicts. Almost 200 athletes were expected to attend the event, according to the Washington Post.

President Trump did not mention the absences in his remarks at Friday’s event. Instead, he lauded some of the other athletes in attendance, including figure skater Vincent Zhou, the gold medal-winning women’s hockey team and the men’s curling team, which also took home gold at the 2018 Olympics.

Here are some of the big names —including Adam Rippon, Lindsey Vonn and Chloe Kim — who chose to skip the 2018 Winter Olympics celebration at the White House this year:

Adam Rippon

FSKATING-OLY-2018-PYEONGCHANG
Mladen Antonov—AFP/Getty ImagesUSA’s Adam Rippon competes in the men’s single skating short program of the figure skating event during the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at the Gangneung Ice Arena in Gangneung on Feb. 16, 2018.

Rippon, a 2018 TIME 100 honoree and the first openly gay American athlete to qualify for the Winter Olympics, told TIME last month that he wouldn’t attend.

“This Administration ran on a platform of fear. I don’t think that’s any way for us to live. I would never want my sister to be spoken to the way Donald Trump has spoken to women. I would never want anyone to talk to my mother that way. And my mother would never tolerate one of her sons doing that, either. I think we can do better,” Rippon said.

The figure skater, who won a bronze medal as a member of the U.S. figure skating team in PyeongChang, famously said he didn’t want to meet with Vice President Mike Pence before the 2018 Olympics and criticized the Vice President’s views on gay marriage.

Lindsey Vonn

Vonn, who won a bronze medal in PyeongChang in downhill skiing, told CNN in December 2017 that she would “absolutely not” go to the White House after the 2018 Olympics, which took place in February.

“Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Vonn told CNN at the time. “I want to represent our country well. I don’t think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”

Chloe Kim

Kim, the 17-year-old snowboarding sensation who won a gold medal at the 2018 Olympics, also didn’t attend Friday’s ceremony. She told the Washington Post she had a wedding to attend.

Kim, who was also a 2018 TIME 100 honoree, has spoken out about causes aligned against Trump in the past. In March, she tweeted her support for March for Our Lives, the massive gun control rally organized by the survivors of the deadly Parkland, Fla. shooting earlier this year.

Gus Kenworthy

100 Days Out Celebration - Team USA

Freestyle skier Kenworthy, who is also openly gay, opted not to make the trip to Trump’s White House.

Kenworthy has spoken out about Trump in the past, telling TIME in July 2017: “I think we had been two steps forward with Obama. And it’s a step back with the Trump administration.”

Erin Hamlin

Hamlin, who served as the flag bearer for Team USA in the 2018 Opening Ceremony, didn’t attend Friday’s festivities, according to USA Today. The luger said she planned on visiting the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center on Friday morning instead.

Mikaela Shiffrin

Shiffrin, who won a gold medal in giant slalom at the 2018 Olympics, chose not to visit the White House, according to the Washington Post. She did not speak publicly about her decision, but told CNN in 2016: “The value that [Trump] portrays to everyone is not ideal… I don’t think women are going to be looking to him. I think they still look to Hillary [Clinton].”

Shaun White

Ian MacNicol—Getty ImagesShaun White of United States celebrates after winning the Men’s Halfpipe Final at Phoenix Snow Park on Feb. 14, 2018 in Pyeongchang-gun, South Korea.

Shaun White, the legendary snowboarder who took home a gold medal in the halfpipe event in PyeongChang, was another notable name who skipped Friday’s festivities, according to the Post. He told the Post he was attending a wedding.

Mirai Nagasu

The Obamas, Ellen and More Stars Congratulate Kate and William on Baby No. 3

A joyous occasion for all! Michelle and Barack Obama congratulated Prince William and Duchess Kate on Monday, April 23, after the arrival of their third child, a baby boy.

“Barack and I are thrilled to congratulate The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their newest arrival!” the former first lady wrote alongside a photo of herself and the former president meeting Prince George, who was getting ready to go to bed, back in April 2016. “We hope to meet him soon for a Kensington Palace pajama party. I’ll wear my robe!”

Former One Direction band member Liam Payne also sent his well wishes.  “Congratulations to her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge Kate and the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William on the birth of their baby boy! #RoyalBaby,” the English singer tweeted.

Ellen DeGeneres, Chrissy Teigen and Sarah Silverman also reacted to the royal baby news, but took a more comedic approach.

“It’s a boy! Kate Middleton’s new baby is now 5th in line to the throne, and season 43 of ‘The Crown,’” the Ellen DeGeneres Show host tweeted. “Congratulations to all!”

“Royal baby name pitches: Joseph, Michael, Henry, Idris, Sandy, Clyde, Butch, Grandpa Al Lewis, Jude, Bub,” Silverman wrote. (William and Kate have not revealed baby No. 3’s name, but the prince told reporters outside St. Mary’s hospital in London on Monday that they will announce the name “soon enough.”)

Pregnant Teigen, meanwhile, tweeted after the news broke that Duchess Kate was in labor: “Guys. It is time. For. VAGINA WATCH, 2018 (how WEIRD would this be???).”

Kate, 36, and William, 35, stepped out with their baby boy just hours after the duchess gave birth on Monday. The couple, who are also parents of Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, headed home to Kensington Palace.

Kaia Gerber Stars on i-D Magazine’s Lackluster Summer Cover

After another solid runway season for Fall 2018, Kaia Gerber continues to add an impressive body of work to her ever-growing portfolio. Following covers for Vogue Paris, Love Magazine and an advertising campaign for none other than Chanel, the promising 16-year-old now stars on the cover of i-D Magazine. The publication did our forums proud with the last issue’s diverse cast and series of inspiring covers. Going all out once again, i-D taps the mini-me of Cindy Crawford for Summer 2018’s ‘Super Youth’ issue, photographed by Mario Sorrenti wearing Gucci.

Despite the magazine’s best efforts at profiling Kaia, our forum members weren’t into it. “I like the idea of Kaia for i-D but the cover looks very Instagram-like. I don’t think the effortless vibe works enough to elevate these images the way they intended. Perhaps with better styling,” quipped dodencebt.

“Snore. The bare minimum of effort was put into this,” exclaimed 333101.

“Another youth issue! We couldn’t wait for another one! Boring, as everything else connected to youth that fashion magazines try and push,” commented apple.

“I had hopes of something glorious after seeing the thread title… I don’t know, I’d rather see the unbuyable glow of youth than a morose tiredness that’s freely available to individuals of every age,” tigerrouge slated.

In agreement over how lackluster everything looked was forum member Benn98: “Also had hope, but only a vague degree because, well, it’s Kaia. She’s becoming increasingly dull to watch in print. Complete waste of a cover. Can’t believe I’m saying this, but at least Kendall and the Hadids have been trying to do something meaningful.”

GinAndTonic fired back, “I completely disagree. I found her dull at the beginning, but now I’m more than convinced. She was just born to be a model. To me she has really that special thing unlike Kendall, and I’m sure she’s going to get better and better.”

‘Pitch Perfect 3’ Stars Reflect on Franchise’s Future and That Icky Band Name

Pitch Perfect 3 is the third film in the popular comedy franchise, but will it be the last?

For stars Chrissie Fit and Hana Mae Lee, who play Flo and Lilly, respectively, the series has run its course, but they’d be open to returning.

“The [ending] montage really felt it was the end,” Fit told FANDOM. “People really love these characters and want to see what’s next for them. Maybe Flo [who becomes an entrepreneur] will finance their next tour.”

Lee, who’s been part of the franchise since the original 2012 film, agrees. “I love playing Lily,” she explained. “If there is [a fourth film], I’m down and I feel people would be excited. If there isn’t, I felt the third one was a really nice ending.”

The Musical Numbers


Pitch Perfect 3 USO
Lee says they got their routines down easier in this film.

Lee joked that she might be getting a little too old to do the intense song and dance routines.

“All of them were challenging because my body is getting older,” she said with a laugh. “You know you’re getting old when you’re being shown dance moves and you’re like, ‘Hmm, I’m going to have back issues and neck issues later.’”

Still, she admitted that the actors’ experience from the previous films was helpful, especially with new director Trish Sie, who comes from a music video background. “We got the dance moves more quickly this time around,” Lee stated. “It’s in our veins.”

Fit, who joined in Pitch Perfect 2, said performing Britney Spears’ “Toxic” was the most challenging.

The scene is the climax of the movie, and the girls find themselves held on a yacht at gunpoint by gangsters.

“There were so many elements to it. The action sequence, dancing, and singing for our lives,” Fit explained. Luckily, the shoot took place on a sound stage instead of open waters.

“Production actually built a yacht on a sound stage which was nuts. They had this huge tank with lukewarm bath water, which was better than jumping into the ocean,” Fit admitted.

“That whole filming day was really fun,” she continued. “We got to be action stars for a minute and afterward you were in a pool with all your best friends. We were playing games, synchronized swimming. It was one of my favorite moments. It felt like we were all kids again.

Many more behind-the-scenes clips can be found on the Pitch Perfect 3 home release, out this week. Other highlights include a gag reel and an intimate and emotional look at the final performance.

That Icky Band Name


Pitch Perfect 3 Evermoist
Openly gay actress Ruby Rose fronts a fictional band called Evermoist.

Speaking of funny moments, FANDOM had to ask both actresses about the name of guest star Ruby Rose’s band. The all-girl band was named Evermoist.

“It just sounds so gross,” Fit responded. “Automatic cringe from me. I think Rebel Wilson is the only one who could hear ‘Evermoist’ and improv seven jokes right after. She started talking about being ‘never moist, ever again’ [laughs].”

Adds Lee, “I was like ‘what is that?’” upon hearing the name. “What’s funny is that it can be real. There could be a really successful band named Evermoist in this world right now.”

And while the girls of Evermoist battled the Barden Bella alums, Fit said the film’s legacy is its empowering message.

“This is how female friendships are,” she explained. “It’s not catty, it’s not divisive. We are stronger together!”

‘Drag Race All Stars’: Chad and Alaska Return for Revenge but with Only 3 Queens

This week’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race went off with very few surprises. That is until Mama Ru summoned Chad and Alaska to return in their handmaid costumes in preparation to reveal the season’s big twist.

Just before the return of the past All Stars winners, it was Bebe Zahara Bonet and Trixie Mattel lip syncing for their legacy in the Top 2 — wins that both of them desperately needed.

Trixie was supposed to be the frontrunner heading into the season but remained safe every episode so far until last week when she was nearly eliminated. (Trixie fans are still recovering from Shangela’s fakeout last week though, so we won’t dwell on it!)

Meanwhile, Bebe returned to the workroom to compete after winning the first ever season of Drag Race, so she had a lot to prove in order to not jeopardize her legacy. But after failing to deliver anything special or memorable week after week, she really needed a win to prove she deserved to be here.

So after an Andy Warhol-inspired runway in which our queens had to both make their own Studio 54 costume and decorate a giant can of soup, Trixie and Bebe finally landed on top. And it was Aja and Shangela (fresh off a win the week before), who faced elimination.

Bebe won the lip sync and sent Aja home. And, despite getting a huge redemption after doing poorly in Season 9, it certainly seemed more reasonable than getting rid of Shangela. The Hallelloo queen has been killing it this season and already has two wins under her belt — no easy feat with BenDeLaCreme around!

Aja actually helped Bebe sew her dress, so to then be sent home by her has got to sting. But there was no time for tears because, after teases left us waiting in anticipation all season long, RuPaul finally called Chad and Alaska back to the stage.

The OG All Stars have been stalking our contestants in their Handmaid’s Tale outfits all season long and have finally been called upon to reveal the twist they have up their long red sleeves.

When Ru asks the queens how many of her eliminated girls they were able to capture, three queens returned to the stage. And while their faces were covered by their bonnets, we’re led to believe that these are previously eliminated contestants who have returned for their revenge.

But the gag is, there were only three queens on stage, but it’s actually five who have gone home. So who wasn’t invited back? And what does it all mean?

Previews for next week showed Ru declaring that they were here for their revenge, but are they actually coming to compete? Or are they just here to shake things up by somehow throwing a wrench into the competition?

And what about the widely spread rumor that Bebe is a mole? Many people thought she may have been spying on the other contestants for Ru this whole time and would join the eliminated queens in helping to vote off one of the contestants. But Bebe’s win tonight would feel like a waste if she wasn’t really playing the game (Trixie could have had that!) and the reveal likely would have happened as this week’s cliffhanger.

Instead, we’re left with more questions than answers heading into next week, but it’s exciting to know we’ll finally find out the big shocker of the season.

And while you super sleuths put on your detective caps to try to figure out what Chad and Alaska are up to, don’t forget that the Season 10 queens were also announced at the end of the All Stars episode. Head here to read our break down of the upcoming cast and then head to Twitter to let us know what you think next week’s big All Stars twist will be.

‘Drag Race All Stars’: Booted Contestant Says She Was ‘Set Up to Fail’

Spoiler alert: This post contains spoilers from Episode 2 of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3. Proceed with caution.

One thing’s for certain after Episode 2 of Drag Race All Stars 3: this is not RuPaul’s Best Friend Race.

With all the queens being friends and touring together outside of the show, you’d think we’d be watching nothing but sisterly support. But, luckily for those of us who love our drag with a side of drama, all eyes seem to be on the prize and the claws are coming out. And the pressure got so intense that one contestant claimed she was “being set up to fail.”

For proof, look no further than the rehearsal for this week’s lip-syncing challenge, a parody of VH1 Divas.

Guest judge Todrick Hall was in charge of choreographing the performances and the queens often struggled to keep up. A fact that the other competitors were all too happy to point out.

It all began with Thorgy Thor returning to her Season 8 “conspiracy theorist” ways by overthinking, complaining, and comparing herself to the other queens. After being assigned to impersonate Stevie Nicks, Thorgy said she was “being set up to fail” because she felt the other queens’ roles were more energetic and entertaining. Cut to confessionals featuring pretty much every queen calling her out for her insecurities. (To be fair, Thorgy’s recorded track was absolutely not as funny as those that were given to many of the other queens.)

Kennedy Davenport was up next and struggled to pick up the choreography. Pretty sure the “Dancing Diva of Texas” got her nickname due to her dancing skills, so what was the problem?

She claimed she only freestyles and doesn’t do choreography. Having a major limitation within your greatest talent is not a great sign. (And, indeed, she dances her way right into the bottom two this week.)

When it was Shangela’s time to rehearse her role as Mariah Carey, Milk called her out on her diva behavior. (Shangey just claims she was serving us Meryl Streep method-acting realness.)

Shangela accused the queens of getting hateful this season, saying “Jealousy is a killer in this industry, mama. The girls are so hateful this season!”

“Shush, Valentina,” Milk clapped back, invoking the name of the Season 9 contestant, who accused others of being jealous of her talent and hating on her. (New All Stars drinking game: Drink every time Valentina is mentioned this season, which so far is quite a bit for a queen who’s not even on the show.)

In return for her negative comments, Shangela came for Milk and her “better-than-everyone” attitude. Which, by the way, has been noticeable since the start of the season and was already called out online. It later became even more clear that Milk is having some ego issues when she flipped out on stage over being safe. (Frankly, it looked like she could have been in the bottom, so she should consider herself lucky!)

By the time they were back in the workroom after deliberations, Milk was in tears over not getting enough praise, which, as Trixie pointed out, was “a whole lot of emotion for safe.”

Bebe and BenDeLaCreme also seemed to struggle during the rehearsal, but they each ended up in the top 3, so that may have just been clever editing. But the queens still were throwing plenty of shade their way as they rehearsed anyway.

Thorgy’s worries ultimately became a self-fulfilling prophecy. She shamelessly tried to form a last-minute alliance to save herself, but to no avail. Shangela won the lip sync and chose to eliminate Thorgy over her good friend Kennedy.

Was Thorgy sabotaged? Or did she not step it up, All Star-style? And will sour Milk soon find herself gone, as well? The conspiracy theories are already on Twitter.

Stay tuned to FANDOM for our power ranking of where the queens stand after Episode 2.

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’: Morgan McMichaels’ Road To ‘All Stars 3’

As fans count down to the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 on January 25,  FANDOM takes a closer look at the nine queens competing for the coveted crown.

Name: Morgan McMichaels
Real Name: Thomas White
Age: 36
Hometown: Loch Lomond, Scotland, UK
Season: 2
Finished: 8th place

Best ‘Drag Race’ Moments:

Stripper Challenge

Morgan got a head start on the competition during Season 2 when she won the main challenge of the first episode. Tasked with putting on a show for a bunch of men at a strip club, Morgan used being one of the “pretty girls” to her advantage. Her skills at working the crowd, not to mention her ability to do an upside-down split on the stripper pole, helped land her the top spot of the season premiere.

Morgan vs Mystique

Every season needs a good feud and Morgan’s fight with Mystique Summers Madison was one of the first to enter the Drag Race Feud Hall of Fame. (And it gave us the infamous line, “Bitch, I’m from Chicago!”) Morgan has a sharp tongue and isn’t afraid to speak her mind — something that should make for good TV during All Stars 3 — so there were plenty of moments where she brought the drama, including the scene from Untucked below.

“Two of Hearts” Lip Sync

Being in the bottom two provided Morgan with an opportunity to show off her epic performance skills and she took full advantage during a lip sync to Stacey Q’s  “Two of Hearts.” While her opponent, Sonique, showed off some impressive gymnastic skills all over the runway, Morgan proved you could stay in one spot and still steal the show.


What She’s Been up to Since Her Season Ended:

Morgan is a staple of the Southern California drag scene, performing nightly in San Diego, Long Beach, and LA. New fans may recognize her from her recent social media feud with Season 2 winner Tyra Sanchez, who posted on Twitter last year that Morgan was dead. Between her performance skills and her take-no-prisoners attitude, can Morgan snag a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame next to her drag mother, All Stars Season 1 winner Chad Michaels?

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’: Milk’s Road to ‘All Stars 3’

As fans count down to the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 on January 25,  FANDOM takes a closer look at the nine queens competing for the coveted crown.

Name: Milk
Real Name: Daniel Donigan
Age: 29
Hometown: Syracuse, New York
Season: 6
Finished: 9th place

Best Drag Race Moments:

Bearded Queen

Milk got a lot of criticism from the other queens when she chose to wear a beard on the runway, but RuPaul clearly liked what she saw. The next season featured an entire mainstage challenge that required the contestants to sissy that walk with facial hair. The quirky queen was doing “weird” before it was chic.

“Workroom Ru” Look

Season 6 featured a runway challenge that required the queens to recreate their favorite Mama Ru looks from her decades-spanning career. But jaws truly dropped when Milk appeared as “Workroom Ru,” complete with bald head and his signature suit. Not all the judges were happy with the boy drag, but it left the strongest impression of the episode.

What She’s Been up to Since Her Season Ended:

Milk worked at a Marc Jacobs store before her time on Drag Race, but the fashion designer promoted her to a model for the brand in 2016. And that was just the start of the queen’s modeling career. Last year, Milk became the new face of Madonna’s MDNA skin care line. With even more time in the fashion industry under her belt, we can’t wait to see what shocking looks the dairy queen brings to the All Stars runway.

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’: BenDeLaCreme’s Road To ‘All Stars 3’

As fans count down to the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 on January 25, FANDOM looks at the nine queens competing for the coveted crown.

Name: BenDeLaCreme
Real Name: Benjamin Putnam
Age: 35
Home City: Seattle, Washington
Season: 6
Finished: 5th/Miss Congeniality

Best Drag Race Moments: 

Shade: The Rusical

When it was time for the season’s musical number, DeLa received high praise for her role as an evil temptress — or as Bianca Del Rio put it, “a man with one eye.” The kooky queen served Phantom of the Opera realness as she urged Courtney Act’s ingenue character to drink from her evil fish-oil potion.


Snatch Game

Viewers were confused when Ben chose Maggie Smith as her Snatch Game character, especially after she confessed to RuPaul in the workroom that she didn’t even know how to do an English accent. But it turned out her worries were unwarranted, as she stole the show with her quick wit and hilarious quips, which ultimately won her the challenge.

Her Looks

DeLa’s “terminally delightful” personality made her a fan favorite, but it was her runway looks that made her a true contender for the crown. She won the season’s first main challenge thanks to her Golden Girls-inspired look and stunned the judges when she entered the runway dressed as a fly.


What She’s Been Up To Since Her Season Ended:

Since being crowned Miss Congeniality at the end of Season 6, BenDeLaCreme has been performing her solo cabaret shows all across the country. The campy queen also served as the narrator for the dark comedy web series Capitol Hill, starring alongside Waxie Moon and fellow Seattle sister Jinkx Monsoon. DeLa reportedly turned down the opportunity to appear on All Stars 2, saying she didn’t like the way producers manipulated relationships between the queens. Luckily for fans, she clearly had a change of heart.
