The Weeknd called the Grammys out for his nomination shut out (and Nicki Minaj backed him up). There’s some speculation that the Grammys wanted him to perform on their show and not the Super Bowl Halftime Show, which airs just a week later, but the Academy CEO insists that’s not the case.

-In a deeply personal NYT op-ed, Meghan Markle revealed she suffered a miscarriage in July. Not only is her op-ed incredibly moving, it helps to break down the stigma surrounding talking about miscarriages. I didn’t realize until I started doing some social media work for a fertility clinic that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. That’s an insane stat, and people rarely talk about it. Besides it being very well-written, I also liked how her essay clearly positions her as a hands-on mom, with all the talk of diaper changes and picking up crayons and socks.

To say that he was more focused on his thing and the press just ran with it is a p**sy move. This is his way of not publicly stating that he was very much in and now he’s not.”
