BILLIE EILISH CALLS OUT BODY SHAMERS IN SHORT FILM – (05/28/2020)
Billie Eilish protests body shaming in a new short film titled “Not My Responsibility.”
The video opens with Eilish wearing a hoodie as she stands in a dark pool of liquid. The singer undresses as she challenges body shamers and her haters before slipping underwater.
“Do you know me, really know me?” Eilish asks. “You’ll have opinions about my opinions, about my music, about my clothes, about my body.”
Eilish is both criticized and praised for often wearing baggy clothes. “Some people hate what I wear, some people praise it, some people use it to shame others, some people use it to shame me, but I feel you watching,” the star says. “Nothing I do goes unseen.”
Eilish wrote and produced the project, which was first shown during her “Where Do We Go?” world tour. The remaining dates of the tour were postponed in March due to the pandemic.
However, she’s stayed busy through the lockdown and has performed livestream concerts, created face mask merch, and chatted with Rainn Wilson about her crippling obsession with The Office.
Eilish has apparently made her way through the entire nine-season series 15 times. It’s a baffling accomplishment that even Rainn Wilson, who starred on the sitcom as Dwight Schrute, finds ridiculous.
Wilson recently invited the 18-year-old to join him on Hey There, Human, a quarantine-specific Instagram Live series that he runs as part of his SoulPancake uplifting content-creation network. During the show, the pair discussed a number of things, including Eilish’s interesting quarantine TV binge habits.
“Well, I just finished watching The Office for a 15th time two days ago,” Eilish told the actor when asked about what she’s been doing to take care of her mental health during this difficult time. Wilson let out an exasperated sigh before letting off, “William, it is time to move on.” (He calls her “William” throughout the interview) “It is time to move on to another show. Really. Please,” he begged.
“I have tried, okay,” she responded. “But, you know, I can’t do anything about it. I don’t know.” “Every time I hit that episode that says finale, I’m always like, goddamn it.”

TRAVIS SCOTT AND RIHANNA DATED BACK IN 2015 – (05/28/2020)
It has been confirmed that Travis Scott secretly dated Rihanna back in 2015. According to US Weekly, Throwing Fits cohost Lawrence Schlossman was chatting with fellow podcaster James Harris and journalist Jonah Weiner about the experience of celebrities hating something they had written about them and Schlossman said that Travis wasn’t too happy when he broke the news about the rapper dating Rihanna.
Schlossman explained, “I broke the news about him and Rihanna, which they told me not to do. Apparently, what La Puma, our boy Joe the Puma [a Complex editor], told me was that it hurt Complex’s relationship with Travis. This was in 2015/16 I wrote this. But apparently, for the next couple of years, he would complain about that.”
Schlossman added, “It’s not because he’s like, ‘Don’t tell anyone I’m smashing Rihanna.’ It’s because Rihanna’s like, ‘Don’t tell anyone that I’m smashing Travis Scott, please.’ [It’s] obviously embarrassing as f*ck.”
Two years later, Travis started dating Kylie Jenner.
JUSTIN AND HAILEY BIEBER THREATEN TO SUE PLASTIC SURGEON OVER TIKTOK VIDEOS – (05/28/2020)
Justin and Hailey Bieber are threatening legal action against a plastic surgeon who posted a video about the model on TikTok.
Attorneys sent a cease and desist letter to Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Barrett accusing him of using the 23-year-old model’s “name, image and likeness” to “commercially advertise your plastic surgery practice and to spread false, uncorroborated claims that Mrs. Bieber has undergone plastic surgery.”
Barrett featured Hailey in a video and claimed that she’s had a skin tightening procedure, jawline contouring, chin augmentation, as well as filler in her cheeks and lips.
Justin also accused the doctor of using “copyrighted protected lyrics” from his song “Sorry.”
The couple is seeking a public statement from Barrett renounce the claims he made and remove any and all posts containing non-approved references to them.
Barrett claims that the purpose of his TikTok account is to educate viewers and “increase the transparency of plastic surgery.” He also said: “I was definitely shocked as I was simply sharing my opinion on what I thought she may have had done. I felt like I was being bullied. I do not make money off of the TikTok account and the ‘cease and desist’ was overreaching.”
Dr. Barrett noted that Hailey is not one of his patients, but he did some research and found photos of her that appeared to be unaltered. “I compared them side-by-side and gave my opinion as to what plastic surgery procedures I thought she had done,” he explained, adding that people tagged Hailey and she “posted a comment that she felt it was flattering that people thought that she had plastic surgery.”
