We’re catching up on the news we’ve missed: a possible One Direction reunion, Maggie Rogers forgoing Ticketmaster to sell tickets in person, and a SLEW of couple news including Bad Bunny and Kendall Jenner, Harry Styles and Emrata, and Rosalia and Rauw Alejandro.
In the seemingly unending saga of Selena Gomez vs Hailey Bieber, we’re recapping the latest olive branch between the two with calls to end fandom hate.
And of course, we couldn’t not talk about Taylor Swift’s breakup with Joe Alwyn after dating for six years. The news came as a shock to many, and fans reacted with continued distrust of the media – saying they won’t believe the breakup until Taylor says it herself. We dig into the media literacy and ongoing distrust of the media – while pointing out that a People exclusive is the closest thing we’ll ever have to Tree Paine making a statement herself.
