Lord Bieber, at K’s service
So, there’s a rumour that Justin Bieber and Kourtney Kardashian are hooking up. Really. Some big mouth told Us Weekly that Biebs has been bragging about it to his friends and, well, yeah. Why wouldn’t he? He’s a 21-year-old tatted former punk and she’s a gorgeous mom of three in her mid-30s who may or may not be getting back with her ex, Scott Disick.
But a rumour’s just a rumour, right? Nothing factual to see here and, pfft. These “sources” could just as easily be Kris Jenner trying to drum up some attention for one of her kids.
Then Justin went and posted this Sunday night and now we’re not sure.
The caption may be a dig at Disick, who goes by the self-appointed title of Lord but who knows? It might not even be Kourt (or even a real person) splayed across the car hood like a model at an auto show. But not gonna lie, we really, really, really want it to be her. Not anything long-term, mind you, but if Biebs and Kardash are having a little fun, what’s the harm?
Adele cut her hair and everyone lost their minds
As far as the world is concerned, Adele can do no wrong. So when she debuted a new bob on the season finale of The X Factor, it was clearly going to met with some appreciation. And social media lit up — almost unanimously with approval.

I wonder how many people will cut their hair short now in hope they’ll look like Adele — Annabel (@Mascaramalteser) December 13, 2015
No, really, how many other women has Adele inspired to chop off their locks? Uh, maybe she wants to give Duchess Kate her stylist’s number? Come on, you know you’re thinking it too.
Ronda Rousey honoured her Marine Corps Ball date because she’s awesome like that
A couple weeks back, Ronda Rousey suffered a crushing defeat to Holly Holm in a UFC title fight. But a few months before that, Rousey had accepted an invitation to the Marine Corps Ball from Lance Corporal Jarrod Haschert. There was some speculation as to whether or not Ronda would honour her commitment because she hasn’t really been in the mood to be out and about. But, please. This is Ronda Rousey we’re talking about. Not only did she tell TMZ that she “promised” she’d go but she added that it gave her a reason to leave the house. “Honestly, I probably would stay on my couch crying and eating ice cream for like another month if he didn’t ask me to go,” Rousey told TMZ. And looks like Lance Cpl. Haschert was an amazing date. Yay to all this! Could not love this any more.
Thank you Lance Cpl. Jarrod Haschert for taking me to the Marine Corps Ball, being such a gentleman, and putting a smile on my face again 🙏🏼 A photo posted by rondarousey (@rondarousey) on
Willow Smith surprised us all with a new album and it’s unlike anything you’ve ever heard
Jaden Smith may have announced that he’s got a book of philosophical essays in store for us, but his little sister, Willow, decided to steal his thunder and release a surprise album. It’s called Ardipithecus and its first single, “F Q-C #8” (pronounced “frequency”), is difficult to describe. Willow wrote 14 of the 15 tracks and produced 10 of them. Her older brother, Trey, also helped with three of the songs. In an email to The Fader, Willow explained the title of her album: “Ardipithecus Ramidus is the scientific name of the first hominid bones found on earth. I wanted to name my musical compilation after it because, while I was making these songs I was in such a transitional state. Digging deep in the soil of my heart and finding bits and pieces of my ancient self that tell stories, which end up being the lyrics to the songs. Ardipithecus is my first album in my entire career and it makes me feel so blessed to be able to share my evolution with the LightEaters as I continue excavating my inner worlds…” Uh, OK. Have a listen. But if you were expecting something in the “Whip My Hair” vein, prepare for disappointment.
Edward Norton is awesome, launches crowdfunding campaign for Syrian refugee
Damn, Humans of New York and their emotional profiles. The photo blog’s series, “The Syrian American“, has been chronicling Syrian refugees settling in the U.S. One man, nicknamed “The Scientist,” caught the attention of several people including President Obama (who wrote in the comments, “As a husband and a father, I cannot even begin to imagine the loss you’ve endured. You and your family are an inspiration. I know that the great people of Michigan will embrace you with the compassion and support you deserve.”) The Scientist lost seven family members, including his wife and daughter. He has a PhD but has struggled to find work. Now he has cancer but he still hopes to help humanity. Good grief. Edward Norton was so touched by The Scientist’s story that he launched a fundraising campaign on CrowdRise, to support him and his family. Nearly $400,000 has been raised but if you want to read more or see how Ed was moved, go to CrowdRise.
