Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber Might Already be Married
This past week, Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber have been on a PDA tour of NYC, but an eagle-eyed fan noticed something different about Baldwin’s ring finger.

Naturally, this sparked rumors that the two had secretly gotten married already, but the truth of the matter remains to be seen.
Kim Kardashian Comes Under Fire for "Triggering" Comments
Kim Kardashian is under fire for rejoicing over comments made by her sisters that she appeared to be anorexic. In the video posted to Snapchat, Kendall Jenner exclaimed, “I’m really concerned, I don’t think you’re eating. You look so skinny.” To this, Kim responded, “What! Oh my god, thank you!” Jenner then added, “My purse is as tiny as you,” to which Kim gushed, “Oh my god, the compliments!”
Khloe Kardashian then chimed in, saying, “She’s anorexic here [gestures to Kim’s waist], her arms are like pin thin, they’re like my pinky.” A huge and vocal outcry followed on social media, with users on multiple platforms scolding Kim for celebrating the anorexia “compliments” and accusing her comments of being triggering for those with eating disorders.
Cardi B Cancels Tour with Bruno Mars
After collaborating with Bruno Mars on the “Finesse” remix, Cardi B was tapped to open for the singer on the fall leg of his 24K Magic tour. However, Cardi B only recently gave birth to her daughter Kulture and is still in the beginning stages of motherhood. Her signature honesty came into play recently when she confessed to fans via video on Instagram that being a mother was proving to be a lot more difficult – and draining – than she originally thought it would be.
This realization led Cardi B to reconsider the lengthy tour, which she felt she wasn’t ready for and couldn’t manage as a new mother. She posted the following apology after pulling out of the tour, and noted Bruno Mars’ understanding and compassion towards her difficult decision.
Riccardo Tisco Reworks the Burberry Logo
After 20 years of maintaining the same logo and monogram, Burberry has finally changed things up in a significant way. With Riccardo Tisci now at the helm of the brand as its Creative Director, big changes were expected, but it was still a surprise to see the slick new monogram unveiled over the weekend.
Tisci tapped English art director and graphic designer Peter Saville to create the new look, dubbing it a new era for the brand. The monogram features a “B” braided into an orange grid against a tan background. This retro-looking font drew mixed reviews online, but we’re of the mind that a big change of this nature was long overdue.
