Gossip round-up: Our verdict on the week’s top fashion & entertainment stories
Leave Britney alone Remember in 2007, when Britney Spears had a total public breakdown and shaved her head and was committed against her will to a mental institution? According to former manager Sam Lufti, who his suing the pop star, Brit-Brit was crazily addicted to crystal meth and prescription pills and she shaved her head because she had heard drug use could be detected through hair testing. Verdict: I thought she looked good without hair, but single tear nonetheless.
Wedding Bells Congrats to Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, who tied the knot in Italy today. The couple, who have dated on and off for the last five years, broke up in 2011 amidst rumours of infidelity on Timberlake’s part.
Verdict: Congrats y’all!
Alexa Chung is firing back at people who have criticized her for being too skinny. “‘I think it’s about time people stopped judging women on their appearance and more on their intellect. You can appreciate my style without having to appreciate my weight,” she says. “It’s not actually mutually inclusive. I just get frustrated because, just because I exist in this shape, doesn’t mean that I’m like advocating it and being like, ‘I look great.” How do you know I’m not looking in the mirror and going ‘I wish I could gain 10 pounds?’ Which is actually quite often the case.”
Verdict: Slow clap for taking a stand on body snarking, but minus 10 points for the “I wish I could gain 10 pounds” thing. Honestly.
