The swat felt around the world
While some world leaders are fine with showing a little affection with their spouses (we’re looking at you, Justin and Sophie), other famous couples are more comfortable keeping it professional (side eye to the Cambridges). But it’s something that’s usually discussed beforehand, so as not to overstep or embarrass. Um, it appears President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump did not have that conversation.
The couple arrived in Tel Aviv, Israel, on Monday, the second stop on their eight-day tour of five countries, when it happened. The Trumps had just stepped off Air Force One and were walking on the carpeted tarmac when Donald reached for his wife’s hand — and she slapped it away.
LOL! Melania in Tel Aviv is as MISERABLE, as Melania in the U.S. Watch her push away the CREEP’s hand. PRICELESS😂😂😂This guy is DISGUSTING! pic.twitter.com/lhR1JdTi1m

Wow. That wasn’t a playful swat either. It was a straight-up shutdown, the kind of defence you see during an NBA playoff game. Donald knows better for next time.
Beyoncé and Jay Z threw a “Carter Push Party,” ermagerd
With the birth of Blue Ivy’s siblings near at hand, Bey and Jay celebrated the impending day with an epic, star-studded bash. “The Carter Push Party” was huge, and not just because the “The” was capitalized. Bey posted pics on her Instagram, as did her mom, Tina Lawson.
Some of the ladies in attendance. We see you, Kelly and Michelle.
Queen B’s baby bump looked glorious and was only enhanced by that intricate henna tattoo.
Aw, these two.
Serena, flanked by Lala Anthony and Vanessa Bryant, couldn’t hide her own pregnancy glow.
But back to the star couple. Their love and joy can’t be denied.
Harry Styles and Stevie Nicks singing “Landslide” is the duet you didn’t know you needed
Many of us scoffed (and cried) when the boys of One Direction first announced their decision to take a break to do their own things, but it looks like all the tears were worth it. Harry Styles is the latest 1Der to take on the musical world solo, and Two Ghosts is good. Really good.
After his week-long residency on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Harry put on a secret concert for some of his fans, which was an amazing treat. But it only got better when he brought out a special guest: Stevie Nicks. The two embarked on a duet of a classic Fleetwood Mac song, and more than did it justice.

Goosebumps. If this is a sign of the times, we can’t wait to hear more.
Scarlett Johansson and SNL‘s Colin Jost?!
Like Melissa McCarthy, ScarJo just joined Saturday Night Live‘s Five Timers Club this year, so she’s familiar with Lorne, the cast, the set… uh, the cast. She made a guest appearance on this past weekend’s finale, reprising her role as Ivanka Trump, so it made sense that she would attend the show’s after-party as well. What’s crazy but somehow also makes sense? She had a little makeout session with Weekend Update‘s Colin Jost.
A source told Page Six, “Scarlett and Colin were making out at the bar at the SNL season finale party at 30 Rock … They would make out a bit, then go back to talking.” Another insider added that they were flirting and canoodling in full view of everyone,” and “laughing and seemed to really hit it off.”
Sure, we dig it. Only because we can now say … ScarJost. Excuse us while we see ourselves out.
Katy adds more fuel to the fire that is the Katy vs. Taylor feud
Katy Perry is promoting her new album Witness, and she’s being asked about her feud with Taylor Swift (though no one’s actually saying Swift’s name). During her appearance on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon asked Katy what her song “Swish Swish” is about and the singer was straight up.
“I think it’s a great anthem for people to use whenever someone’s trying to hold you down or bully you,” said Perry. “It’s a liberation from all the negative that doesn’t serve you.”
Jimmy didn’t ask anymore but we think Katy got the point across. Perry wasn’t done, though. On Monday night’s The Late Late Show Primetime Special, James Corden asked Katy about the beef, and she was more than happy to give him all the details of how she allegedly stole Swift’s backup dancers.
“Honestly, it’s really like she started it, and it’s time for her to finish it,” Perry told Corden, who proceeded to tell her version of the story, how then Swift wrote a song about her (“Bad Blood”), karma, but she’s really just ready for it to be over.
“I think, personally, that women together — not divided and, like, none of this petty sh*t — women together will heal the world.” Now the question is, is Taylor ready to end it? Because it looks like Katy just gave her an opening.
