Shawn Mendes Addresses Sexuality, Hailey Baldwin


-In his new Rolling Stone cover story, Shawn Mendes says his relationship with Hailey Baldwin wasn’t as platonic as he first implied. “I don’t even want to put a title on it. I think it was more of a zone of limbo…She’s still one of the f–king coolest people ever — she’s not just a beautiful person visually, but she’s one of the most beautiful hearts I’ve ever met.” He also talks about how the gay rumours stress him out, and how he watching his interviews to analyze his voice and his body language: “In the back of my heart, I feel like I need to go be seen with someone — like a girl — in public, to prove to people that I’m not gay. Even though in my heart I know that it’s not a bad thing. There’s still a piece of me that thinks that. And I hate that side of me.” Ugh. Leave the poor kid alone.

-We truly are living in a golden age of celebrity profiles. This feature on Lena Dunham by Allison P. Davis is breathtakingly good.  I didn’t really think I’d want to read anything more about her, but this is not a fawning, laudatory profile. Davis goes deep (addressing the frequent criticisms thrown Dunham’s way, the rumours that she is a bad pet owner, her stumbles over race, etc), and the result is an article that makes you both sympathize with her as you’re rolling your eyes at her. My fave part: “As she texts me increasingly intimate details that she knows I’ll put in this article, as if she were trying to be the director of her own candid, sympathy-generating magazine story, I begin to wonder if Lena Dunham, the performance artist daring us to hate her, is the work.”

Meek Mills penned a powerful op-ed on prisoner rights reform for the NYT.

Amanda Bynes is on the cover of Paper and seems to be doing legitimately well, which makes me happy. She talks about fighting to cast Channing Tatum in She’s The Man, and admits her drug use started by getting hooked on Adderall because she’d read in a magazine that it keeps you skinny.

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin were spotted in his hometown of Stratford, Ont. this weekend.

-Did Chloë Grace Moretz imply that she found out about then-boyfriend Brooklyn Beckham kissing Playboy model Lexi Wood through push notifications? She told The Sunday Times, “Breakups are hard across the board. But when every verified account on Twitter posts something about me, I get tagged. And every major publication is verified. So anytime they post something about a certain relationship, it pops up on my phone, which is how I find out about 90% of things.”

Chris Hardwick started last night’s Talking Dead episode by tearfully addressing the sexual assault and abuse claims made against him. Not surprisingly, he didn’t mention the several staffers who resigned in protest. Watch the video of him crying here, if that’s your thing.

-Meanwhile, the Nerdist website continues to distance itself from Hardwick.

Stephen Colbert says there was no pushback from CBS when he discussed Les Moonves on The Late Show. “As soon as I heard the article came out, I knew that I’d have to talk about it on Monday night because we talk about everything. That’s kind of all I worked on that Monday was what I wanted to say, and about a half an hour before we taped we told CBS. We said ‘We’re gonna do this, and we’re going to do this.’ And there was no pushback. Nobody said a damn thing.”

When asked about her music, 12-year-old Willow says, “…the feeling of being like, this is a fragment of a holographic reality that a higher consciousness made.” Like, for reals.
