Joe Alwyn shares new picture with Emma Stone as Taylor Swift arrives in Europe

Joe Alwyn shares new picture with Emma Stone as Taylor Swift arrives in Europe

[ad_1] Joe Alwyn is getting ready for the highly-anticipated release of his new film, Kinds of Kindness, directed by Yorgos Lanthimos.  As he reunites with his The Favourite co-star Emma Stone, close friend of his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift, the 33-year-old shared a snap with the Oscar winner – and an endearing meme to show their close friendship. The photo showed Joe and Emma looking intensely at one another in close quarters outside of a motel, clearly a still from the upcoming movie. Emma donned a professional looking dark red suit, as she stood close to her co-star in the dark scene, who wore a more casual fit in the photo. On a less serious note, the actor shared a meme alongside the intense photo of two cats – one with Emma’s red chin-length bob, while the other cat had spiky hair – seemingly portraying himself – with an intense gaze.  © Nicholas HuntEmma Stone and Joe Alwyn worked together on The Favourite There’s clearly nothing but respect and admiration between the two co-stars, as Emma …

“Reaching her expiration date”: How Marjorie Taylor Greene fell so fast from MAGA stardom

“Reaching her expiration date”: How Marjorie Taylor Greene fell so fast from MAGA stardom

[ad_1] Making an Icarus allusion is tempting, except it would go right over MAGA heads. Plus the Greek myth of the ambitious young man who flies too close to the sun and falls to his death is a tragic story. But there was nothing sad about watching Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., faceplant on live TV late Wednesday. Earlier in the day, it seemed that Greene was backing off her ongoing threat to move to oust Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, R-La. Republicans in Congress repeatedly made it clear to Greene that there was no chance of success if she tried this. Not only did most Republicans oppose her efforts, but even most Democrats were ready to block her motion. Even Donald Trump, the not-so-secret actual leader of House Republicans, issued condescending social media posts warning her this “will negatively affect everything!” This was more about Republicans and Democrats joining hands to tell Marjorie Taylor Greene to take a seat already. Faced with certain defeat, Greene made noises on Tuesday suggesting that she was finally …

What songs from ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ made the cut in Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour

What songs from ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ made the cut in Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour

[ad_1] Taylor Swift introduced “The Tortured Poets Department” to the Eras Tour in Paris on Thursday, dramatically revamping a set list that’d been relatively static for more than a year. The Paris La Défense Arena show marked Swift’s return to live performing, after her last gig March 9 in Singapore. It was her first time onstage since the April 19 release of “Poets.” Fans had been wondering whether and how “Poets” would be integrated into her setlist, which had been about 45 songs long and largely unchanged since she kicked off Eras in March 2023 in Glendale, Arizona. In a video Swift recently posted to YouTube shorts, she showcased clips of what appeared to be rehearsals for the upcoming leg of the tour. Fans were quick to point out costumes and props they hadn’t seen before on the Eras Tour — including a short view of her dancers performing with hats and canes, as well as a quick glimpse of a barrier that appeared to show the “TTPD” logo. That all but sealed the deal …

Fresh off the release of her well-received 11th studio album, Swift returned to the stage on Thursday (9 May) in Paris, France, where she performed several of the new tracks live for the first time. Following performances from her 1989 album, the 34-year-old superstar re-entered the stage dressed in a white gown, before launching into tracks from TTPD. She began with the album’s sixth song, “But Daddy I Love Him”, before jumping around and performing “Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me”, “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart”, “loml”, “So High School”, “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived” and more. Ahead of her highly anticipated return to the road, Swift teased fans with a YouTube video of her tour rehearsal, where the intro of “Fortnight” could be …

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s fire was suddenly extinguished this week. She has made herself irrelevant

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s fire was suddenly extinguished this week. She has made herself irrelevant

[ad_1] Marjorie Taylor Greene made sure to milk every moment of the six weeks since she filed her motion to vacate. Inexplicably, she regularly paraded around the Hill with her boyfriend — Right Side Broadcasting Network host Brian Glenn — and was often also accompanied by her cueballed press secretary Nick Dyer. When Greene finally actually called for a vote on Wednesday night and a group of centrist Republicans gathered, Glenn and Dyer watched on. Dyer lit a cigarette. Glenn told me he supported his girlfriend “one hundred per cent.” Greene relished the fact that amid multiple important votes in Congress — including lawmakers passing legislation to keep the government open and assisting allies like Ukraine — all of the reporters huddled around her and asked for her thoughts. This happened despite the fact that she never had the votes to depose Mike Johnson. She didn’t really have anything serious to offer him, either. When she finally pulled her motion to vacate on Wednesday, she enraged Republicans and Democrats alike for the simple reason that …

3D nail art is going to be huge this summer as proven by Gigi Hadid, Janelle Monáe and Teyana Taylor

3D nail art is going to be huge this summer as proven by Gigi Hadid, Janelle Monáe and Teyana Taylor

[ad_1] The eagle-eyed among you might have noticed that 3D nail art dominated the Met Gala mani landscape, and we are putting all bets on it being a standout trend for this season.  While a timeless French tip is one of the more practical options when it comes to nail art, a 3D look is perfect for a special occasion –  just ask Gigi Hadid.  As usual, the model has made it to the top of our inspo list, along with Janelle Monáe and Teyana Taylor, who also opted for the maximalist manicure.  “We’re going to see a lot of 3D and textured manis for SS24,” explains Tinu Bello, celebrity manicurist and senior brand ambassador for Mylee. “The nail art will be hyper-feminine with base layers of creamy and transparent pink, adorned with bows, diamanté hearts, gems and flowers. The look is totally bespoke – make it dainty with carefully placed individual crystals or go all out with 3D adornments and a glitter finish.” Here’s a close up of some of our favourite 3D nail …

House votes overwhelmingly to save Speaker Johnson from Marjorie Taylor Greene’s push to oust him

House votes overwhelmingly to save Speaker Johnson from Marjorie Taylor Greene’s push to oust him

[ad_1] WASHINGTON — Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., and his allies beat back a dramatic effort by far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene to oust him from power on Wednesday, ending — for now — months of threats against his speakership. The lopsided vote to “table” or kill Greene’s motion to vacate the speaker’s chair was 359-43. Just 10 Republicans voted with Greene, seven Democrats voted present. There were 196 Republicans and 163 Democrats who voted to kill Greene’s motion; along with the 11 Republicans, 32 Democrats voted to move forward with her motion to oust Johnson. The vote came after weeks of threats from Greene to force the issue and after dragging her feet as it became clear she didn’t have enough support to remove the speaker. Unlike last year’s successful vote to remove former Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., many Democrats had made clear they would vote to save the speaker, especially after Johnson helped stave off a government shutdown, pushed through the renewal of a critical FISA spy tool and passed billions of dollars in foreign aid for Ukraine after …
