Amber gets real

Amber Heard opened up about her experience with domestic violence, encouraging others to speak up and be heard in a new PSA, and even though she never says his name, it’s got Johnny Depp all over it.

“I guess there was a lot of shame attached to that label of ‘victim.’ It happens to so many women you know. When it happens in your home behind closed doors with someone you love, it’s not straightforward. If a stranger did this, it would be a no-brainer.”

Heard, who accused Depp of abuse during their divorce proceedings (they eventually settled the case after she withdrew her allegations and request for a restraining order), teamed up with the #GirlGaze Project for the PSA that packs a powerful punch.

“We need to take responsibility for how we talk about these things,” she says. “It’s the only way that people are going to feel comfortable coming forward.”

She concluded: “Speak up. Speak up. Raise your voice. Your voice is the most powerful thing and we, together as women standing shoulder to shoulder, cannot and will not any longer accept silence.”

Prince William totally supports Harry’s statement about Meghan Markle

Just when you think Harry and Meghan couldn’t get any more interesting comes the latest gem out of the palace. The royals, who almost never comment on their personal lives, have shocked us over these past couple weeks. First came Harry’s denouncement of the rumours about his girlfriend; now comes a statement from his brother, Prince William, who is showing his support for Harry’s request that the press and public should respect Markle’s privacy.

“The Duke of Cambridge absolutely understands the situation concerning privacy and supports the need for Prince Harry to support those closest to him,” read the short but sweet statement from Kensington Palace to the Telegraph.

Will’s statement came after reports came out that he wasn’t too pleased about Harry’s decision to take his relationship public. But clearly that wasn’t true.

An insider told the paper, “They don’t issue statements like that without talking to each other, and they talked about the Meghan Markle statement extensively in advance of it being put out. The Duke was as alarmed as anyone about what was happening with Meghan.”

The statement was basically a last resort “but over the course of one weekend, things escalated to the extent that Prince Harry felt he had to act.” And act he did, not only confirming his and Meghan’s relationship but also shutting everyone up once and for all.

The two princes have issued joint public statements over the years, sometimes regarding causes they believe in and more often than not a about their late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, and how she was treated by the media. Looks like they’ve teamed up once again, this time to protect Meghan.

John Mayer really, really likes This Is Us and Mandy Moore couldn’t be happier

The singer took to Twitter to let us all know about his new favourite show, This Is Us — which is probably a favourite for all of us because, yeah, it’s THAT good.

Series star Mandy Moore got wind of Mayer’s tweets and reached out and their exchange was just lovely.

These two haven’t dated, have they? Hmm, if not…just saying.

Shailene Woodley breaks down at Dakota Access Pipeline protest

The irony isn’t lost on anyone, that during the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S., protests were still happening in North Dakota, in an effort to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), which is being built on sacred grounds of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Shailene Woodley, who has been protesting for weeks, continues to try and shine a light on it all.

“Today is a day that many people call Thanksgiving. It’s a holiday that was founded on a massacre of our Native American brothers and sisters,” she said as she fought off tears.

Shailene further explained in an interview with TYT Politics that although the pipeline was originally planned to be built in Bismarck, North Dakota, “a predominately white ‘American’ area,” it was moved to a reservation when it was decided that a break in the pipeline may damage their water supply.

Woodley was arrested in October while participating in a protest against the construction of the DAPL. And as promised, she joined hundreds in Washington D.C. on Sunday, marching in a demonstration to be heard once more. Keep on fighting, Shailene.

Selena Gomez returned to Instagram, much to the delight of her fans

It’s been a wonderful week for Selena. Just last weekend, she returned to the spotlight at the American Music Awards and a few days ago, she broke her social media silence after 14 long weeks.

Her hiatus worked wonders, and not only does Selena look healthy but her message proves she feels better too. Go on, girl.
