No royal prenup
As far as Prince Harry is concerned, Meghan Markle is his one and only, so much so that the Daily Mail is reporting that he has rejected the option of signing a prenuptial agreement with his fiancée before their May wedding. “There was never any question in Harry’s mind that he would sign a prenup,” a source said. “He’s determined that his marriage will be a lasting one, so there’s no need for him to sign anything.”
Ahh, true love. But also, not to rain on your romantic parade, Brits don’t really do prenups. In fact, according to the Mail, “they aren’t legally enforceable in the U.K.,” and since the royals like their tradition, it’s no surprise that Harry and Meghan would be following suit, what with Kate never signing with William. Diana and Charles didn’t have one either, and neither did Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew.
Harry’s net worth may around $30 million and Meghan’s around $5 million, but money doesn’t always talk. While it may seem like a good idea for both of them to protect their assets (guess he doesn’t want a piece of the Suits residuals?), it’s understandable why they don’t want a prenup either. The headlines alone would be a headache, almost as big as if they divorced. But they won’t. Because they’re the royal endgame.
Blue Ivy bid $19,000 on a piece of art because she’s Blue Ivy
Beyoncé and Jay-Z attended the 2018 Wearable Art Gala in L.A., and they brought their eldest daughter with them. The couple probably thought it was a completely innocent gesture and maybe the six-year-old could learn a thing or two about art. But, please. This is Blue Ivy. She already knows art. She also knows what she likes.
During the auction portion of the evening, an acrylic painting of a young Sidney Poitier caught Blue Ivy’s eye and she big $17,000 on it. She raised her hand once more at $19,000, despite her dad jokingly trying to stop her.
Lool… Blue Ivy is about to buy all the Artworks at the auction. She must have been listening to JayZ’s tracks about Basquiat and investing in Art. pic.twitter.com/Nd0pFrA16z

But it was to late; Blue Ivy showed her hand too early and she was outbid by Tyler Perry, who won the piece for $20,000. But Blue totally would’ve gone higher had it not been for her dad.

At least the Carters didn’t go home empty-handed. According to Vanity Fair, Blue Ivy bid on the next item, a 36″ x 36″ art piece made of deconstructed law and medical books and won with a final price of $10,000. Beyoncé also made a winning bid of $17,000 on a set of Lorraine Schwartz panther earrings. Until the next gala!
Snapchat’s stock dropped a sh*t ton because don’t mess with Rihanna
Snapchat may have apologized for a despicable ad that appeared on its service that featured Rihanna and Chris Brown, “making light” of domestic violence, but the damage is done. CNN reported that the stock prices of Snap Inc. fell around four per cent on Thursday, then another one per cent on Friday. Those numbers might not mean anything to most people but for Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel, his net worth dropped $150 million in those two days. Was it worth it?
Is it just me, or is this ad that popped up on my Snapchat extremely tone deaf? Like what were they thinking with this? pic.twitter.com/7kP9RHcgNG

It wasn’t Spiegel himself who approved the ad, but something like this has to go through a screening process, and it’s bananas that it managed to sneak through. It was nine years ago that Rihanna and Chris were headed to a Grammys party when he physically assaulted her. And it’s something that should never, ever be joked about.
While Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, told People, “Whoever conceived this at Snapchat needs to be slapped,” Rihanna weighed in on it in her Instagram stories in a less violent, more applaudable way.
Shame on you, Snapchat. Hopefully they’ll learn from this and come up with a better review system for ads that thoughtlessly hurt people. Because this was just wrong.
Angelina’s interview with InStyle is kind of amazing
Angelina Jolie doesn’t give interviews to just anyone, but now that she’s part of the Guerlain team she does have to speak more often about stuff she usually doesn’t care to talk about. Which makes it all the more entertaining. Her humanitarian efforts and issues with Brad Pitt are all well and good, but makeup and getting older and how she pampers herself? That’s what inquiring minds really want to know.
Angelina is not only embracing the aging process, she “loves” it. “I look in the mirror and I see that I look like my mother, and that warms me,” Jolie told InStyle, while promoting Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Florale. “I also see myself aging, and I love it because it means I’m alive — I’m living and getting older.
She admitted, “Don’t love having a random dark spot from a pregnancy, sure. I see my flaws. But what I see that I like isn’t about a structure or an appearance. It’s more that I see my family in my face. I see my age.”
As for makeup, Angie keeps it simple: black mascara and eyeliner, one red lipstick, and concealer for her dark circles. “I do either dark eyes or red lips,” she detailed. “I have very full, big features, so if I did everything, I’d look a bit like a clown. It’d be just … a lot.”
And if you’re wondering how Jolie pampers herself, well, she doesn’t. Because being a mom of six kind of puts a damper on that.
“I’m that person saying, ‘Can you not all be talking to me while I’m in the shower? Can you just not open the door at least? Let me finish and then I’ll get out. Give me a second.'”
She added: “‘Give me a second’ is the thing. I think most mothers say that all the time. Which now I can’t because my kids kind of go, ‘One. I gave you a second.'” It doesn’t matter who they are and who their parents are. Snarky kids exist everywhere.
Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna don’t totally hate each other
In spite of all the drama that came from their breakup and all the accusations that followed, Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna eventually worked things out, and reached a custody agreement over their daughter back in September. And it seems their relationship has gotten better, and Chyna took to her Instagram stories to wish Rob a happy birthday.
Considering what went down with them after their split–Rob posted video and naked pics of Chyna online and accused her of cheating; she accused him of domestic violence and obtained a temporary restraining order against him–it’s amazing they’ve gotten to this point. And it’s all thanks to Dream.
