–Hailey Bieber covers Elle and talks about why she wanted a big wedding ceremony with Justin after being married for a year: “When we first got married, we were just figuring out our life together. I felt like putting a wedding in the middle of all of that would be really hectic and stressful.” She also says his health factored into the delay. “He was really sick. He has Lyme disease, and he was dealing with a bunch of medical stuff. We didn’t have a diagnosis…It was hard because everybody from the outside was being super mean and judgmental, saying he looked like he was on drugs, saying how unhealthy he looked when in truth, he was not healthy and we didn’t know why. It was months of me being a new wife trying to help him figure out what was wrong and what was going on. Now he’s perfectly healthy. But going through that and then trying to be like, ‘So where does our wedding fit into this?’ didn’t feel like the vibe at all.

-Speaking of the Oscars, this is a good piece on how Joker ran the best campaign of awards season. “There’s this pervading assumption that the notoriously prickly Phoenix, a man who openly called the Oscars ‘bullsh*t’ and has never loved the spotlight, is not campaigning this year. This is simply a flat-out lie…make no mistake, this is a man doing the work of getting an Oscar. He’s turning up at all the parties, he’s done the big splashy Vanity Fair cover story, he’s working the room and saying the right things on the podium.”
