We’ve had a trying week. From the closure of Colette to the last-minute cancellation of the Harry Potter concert, some positive news is in order. Here’s our roundup of only the good stuff on the interwebz this week.
Interwebz News #1: “Absurd”
Some of Madonna’s memorabilia have been entered into an auction, and a private letter was published as a preview. In one of the letters, the Queen of Pop wrote to a “J”, believed to be John Enos, whom she was rumoured to be dating in the 90s. It was a sweet letter of apology for her “foul mood” and that she didn’t “mean to be mean and unkind”. Describing her feelings of discouragement and adding that her outlook in life is “black black black”, she made references to a couple of fellow Hollywood stars:
“It’s so unequivically [sic] frustrating to read that Whitney Houston has the music career I wish I had and Sharon Stone has the film career I’ll never have…They’re so horribly mediocre and they’re always being held up as paragons of virtue and some sort of measuring stick to humiliate me.”
In response, Sharon Stone took to social media, saying that it is “absurd” that her private letters were published and they won’t be “pitted against” each other.
We’re feeling so much love for these women right now <3
Madonna’s heartfelt letter ended with “My bitterness gathers like dust”. We’ve all been there and done that, and we’re so glad that this isn’t turning into a catfight!
Interwebz News #2: Beyoncé’s Babies
Queen Bey has done it again. The songstress took the Insta world by storm with a photo marking her twins turning one month old, taken by Mason Poole.
Debuting Sir Carter and Rumi, this reveal echoed her pregnancy photo by Awol Eriku:
So extra and so over-the-top, but so Beyoncé. The photo of the twins has clocked over 9 million likes so far.
Now, that’s how you *ahem* “break the internet”.
Interwebz News #3: Campbell in Vogue
Following the appointment of Edward Enninful as the editor-in-chief of the iconic magazine, taking over from Alexandra Shulman, some major changes are taking place in the editorial team. Enninful officially takes the helm on 1 August.
Lucinda Chambers, fashion director of British Vogue for 25 years under Shulman, has announced her departure. While the magazine’s website stated that she is stepping down, in an interview with Vestoj, Chambers claimed to have been fired.
Venetia Scott has been chosen to replace Chambers, effective 10 July. Enninful describes her as “visionary, influential, and inspiring”. Having started her career at British Vogue, she went on to have an illustrious career in several publications, and also has made a name as a fashion photographer.
Here’s why we’re excited:
In addition, Enninful has enlisted his BFF and supermodel Naomi Campbell as a contributing editor, alongside Kate Moss and Steve McQueen. Moss has been serving as a contributing editor since 2013.
GREAT BRITAIN !!! Meet four new Contributing Editors for @britishvogue, the iconic Creative Director @therealgracecoddington, Supermodel/Actress/Activist @iamnaomicampbell, Style Icon @katemossagency and Oscar winning Filmmaker/Artist #SteveMcqueen.
