Selena Gomez Shuts Down Revenge Rumors
Selena Gomez is back and better than ever with the release of two new singles: a heartbreaking ballad called “Lose You to Love Me” and the infectiously pop-y “Look at Her Now”. However, the lyrical content has caused fans to speculate that both songs are aimed at her former flame, Justin Bieber, who is now married to Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin). After social media called out Hailey Bieber for shading Justin’s ex by posting a photo of the song “I’ll Kill You” by Summer Walker to her Instagram Stories, Gomez quickly went to her defense.
Gomez addressed her fans saying, “I am grateful for the response that the song is getting. I’m so grateful. However, I do not stand for women tearing women down…Please, for me, know that that’s not my heart. My heart is only to release things that I feel – that are me, and that I’m proud of.”

Alber Elbaz Is Making a Comeback
In news that delighted us this week comes Alber Elbaz’s much-anticipated comeback. The designer has been quiet after his departure from Lanvin, collaborating occasionally with other brands but offering no hints as to the future of his work. Elbaz took to Instagram over the weekend to share his forthcoming fashion line AZFashion, supported with an investment by Richemont.
Although Richemont is the majority owner of AZFashion, it’s clear that Elbaz intends to do things his own way. “We are not going to do pre-collections, collections, post-collections,” he shared with the press. “It’s going to be about things I believe are relevant to make. We are just beginning now. And we are beginning really, really small. I like the idea of starting small today.”
