'Veep' Season 3 finale: Tony Hale says Gary loves Selina 'so much'

As Tony Hale wraps up the third season of HBO's "Veep" Sunday, June 8, he considers his character, Gary.

"Probably growing up, he didn't have much of an identity," Hale tells Zap2it. "He is in the shadows a lot, and getting the opportunity to work with Selina when he was younger, 15 years ago, he attached himself to her very strongly, and he doesn't know himself outside of that and idolizes her."

Gary will do anything for Selina, and doesn't realize how abused he is.

"He doesn't hear anything that comes out of her mouth," Hale says. "He just loves her so much."

That's evidenced by The Bag, his bag of tricks that contains whatever the veep (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) needs.

I am in tears at the finale. Honestly the best comedy on TV right now, hands down. The bathroom scene with Gary and Selina. I could not breathe.

Salt N Pepa Appreciation Post: Paying Tribute To Queen B


The original Spice Girls paid tribute to Beyonce in New York City the other night by busting a little move to “Run the World (Girls)” before performing the classic “Push It” during a reunion show. They may not be able to drop down low and sweep the floor with it like Yonce’, but it’s nice to see the ladies come together and pay respect to the artists they played a part in paving the way for. If you can recall, Yonce’ sampled a bit of vocals from “Push It” to use on the Destiny’s Child “Survivor” track “Nasty Girl” in the group’s earlier days. Check out Salt N’ Pepa getting their beehive on below:

Weezer's drummer catches a frisbee without missing a beat

Patrick Wilson wins the "good hands" award for the weekend, and not just for his musicianship. As Stereogum points out, the Weezer drummer caught a Frisbee during a performance of "Beverly Hills" on Friday night in St. Augustine, Florida, and he managed to transfer it to his mouth without, as they say, missing a beat. Frontman Rivers Cuomo, on hearing the audience cheer, was clearly enjoying the moment.

If only Frisbee weren't a trademark of the Wham-O corporation, maybe that could be the name of Weezer's next album — "flying disc" just doesn't have the same ring, does it? Watch fan video of Wilson's cat-like — er, since it's a Frisbee, should that be "dog-like"? — reflexes below, and scroll down for Weezer's "drum cam" footage. We don't yet know Wilson's merits at disc golf, but we can safely say that that, friends, is the ultimate Frisbee. (Well, maybe if he'd been playing "Only in Dreams," but let's not get greedy.)

Rivers Cuomo and co. have been teasing their upcoming, Ric Ocasek-produced ninth album, most recently sharing a snippet of a new Weezer song that could be titled "Ain't Got Nobody."

'Game Of Thrones' Season 4, Episode 9: The Watchers on the Wall


Not since Season 2′s battle of the Blackwater have we encountered an episode of Game of Thrones so entirely devoted to the art of war. Sunday night’s ‘Watchers on the Wall’ had very little politicking. There weren’t any games to play, just swords to swing and heads to hammer.

In a sense, the honesty of battle is almost a breath of fresh air compared to the ludicrous shenanigans at the court in King’s Landing, and all the ugly, cowardly betrayals we’ve seen from the Eyrie to the Dreadfort.

5 Surprising Moments from OITNB

Black is back!

[WARNING: This article is filled with spoilers from the entire second season of Orange Is the New Black. If you haven’t seen it, look away now, and if you have, make like Norma around those who haven’t!]

Netflix’s smash original series Orange Is the New Black debuted its entire second season on Friday, June 6, leaving many devoted fans stuck inside all weekend, binge-watching the show’s new 13 episodes.

Those who toughed it out weren’t disappointed as Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) and her rag tag crew of fellow inmates returned for what proved to be an equally (if not more) compelling sophomore season.

The many women of the Litchfield Penitentiary were as vibrant, diverse, and complex as ever —- with the most notable addition being the thoroughly evil Vee (Lorraine Toussaint) as this year’s primary predator and Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren (Uzo Aduba) as her innocent prey.

Why Lev Grossman's Magicians Series Won't Work as a TV Show


A few weeks ago, the Syfy network announced their plans to adapt Lev Grossman’s fantasy trilogy, The Magicians, into an hourlong drama series. The small handful of blogs and online news outlets who covered the story labelled the project “Harry Potter for adults,” or else slapped it with a somewhat derisive-sounding “Young Adult fantasy” label. On the surface, it’s easy to see how people can mistake The Magicians for any number of other “young people discovering they’re mystically special” narrative, but it’s a description that is, nevertheless, inaccurate.

Now I’m not crazy. I know a story about a group of young adults who attend a magic school and then go traipsing around an alternate universe which can be accessed via an interstitial forest sounds a lot like “Harry Potter/Narnia for adults.” But what that description betrays is a failure to understand that Grossman’s series isn’t a rip-off of either story, but is instead something newer and stranger than that.

Anna Paquin is "Proud To Be A Happily Married Bisexual Mother"


The final, seventh season of True Blood kicks off later this month on HBO, but in the meantime, series star Anna Paquin has other things to celebrate -- including LGBT Pride Month! "Proud to be a happily married bisexual mother," the actress, 31, tweeted early Monday, June 8. Looping in the Twitter handles of Equality California, the It Gets Better Project, and the NOH8 Campaign, she added, "Marriage is about love not gender."

Oscar winner Paquin wed True Blood costar Stephen Moyer back in August 2010, and gave birth to their twins Charlie and Poppy just over two years later. She memorably came out as bisexual a few months before her wedding in a statement for the Give a Damn campaign. Over the weekend, the New Zealand-born star also praised British hubby Moyer's participation in the massive Soccer Aid charity match in the UK.

"Been obsessing so much bout @socceraid @_smoyer forgot it was #gaypride in LA! I'm proud of the steps we've taken 2wards equality! R U?" the X-Men star asked her followers. "So much love to you all. must sleep while the babes sleep. goodnight. xo #HappyPride #socceraid2014 #unicef #safetravels @_smoyer"

Of her bisexuality, the former child actress told Zooey magazine in spring 2010, "For me, it’s not really an issue because I’m someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing. It’s not made up. It’s not a lack of decision."

The Piano star continued, "It's not being greedy or numerous other ignorant things I've heard at this point. For a bisexual, it's not about gender. That's not the deciding factor for who they're attracted to."

How are you celebrating Pride month?

Soccer Aid 2014 raises £4.2m as Rest Of The World beat England 4-2, predict 2014 FIFA World Cup

This year's Soccer Aid has so far raised £4.2 million, as the charity event saw the Rest Of The World defeat England 4-2 at Manchester United's Old Trafford tonight (June 8). Almost 70,000 fans witnessed the World's Clarence Seedorf score a hat-trick and a chip from Nicky Byrne cancel out goals from England's Jamie Redknapp and Kevin Phillips.

The World were managed by José Mourinho and captained by Michael Sheen, while Sam Allardyce took charge of England with assistance from Robbie Williams.

By full time, ITV viewers had pledged over £2 million to UNICEF's work saving children's lives, which will be matched by the UK Government pound for pound and brings the total to £4.2 million so far. The final figure will be announced in due course.

David Bull, executive director of UNICEF UK, said: "Tonight at Soccer Aid we've shown how the power of sport can unite people to help save and change children's lives all over the world.

"As a result of the generosity of the British public, and the Aid Match from the UK Government, UNICEF will be able to get life-saving food, medicine and clean water to some of the world's most vulnerable children. We're incredibly grateful to everyone who donated tonight."

Tilda Swinton returns to her trademark pixie crop for lazy day with partner Sandro

As a serious actress, she is prepared to change her looks for a role. But Tilda Swinton looked undeniably relieved to be back in her own clothes on Sunday, after sporting a wig and heavy make-up on set the day before.

Arriving at The Bowery, New York with her partner Sandro Kopp, the 53-year-old looked much more comfortable in a black caftan than the frilly dress she had to wear on Saturday.

Gone were the honey-coloured locks demanded by the role, and instead the Chronicles Of Narnia star rocked her trademark platinum blonde pixie crop.

The pale-skinned beauty also returned to her favourite make-up free look, having scrubbed off the layers of bronzer and heavy eye make-up her character requires.

Halle Berry Ordered to Pay $16,000 a Month in Child Support

Halle Berry has been ordered to pay Gabriel Aubry a hefty sum each month for child support.

A Los Angeles court on May 30 ordered the Oscar-winning actress to pay $16,000 per month to support their daughter Nahla, 6, until she turns 19 years old or graduates from high school, whichever comes first. The court also awarded Aubry $115,000 in retroactive support.

The couple share equal custody of their daughter, according to court documents.

The pair reached an initial custody agreement in 2012 after a long court battle and a physical altercation involving Berry's now husband Olivier Martinez.

Berry, 47, gave birth to Nahla in 2008 after dating the Canadian model Aubry for two years. The couple split in April 2010.

Beyonce and Jay Z land in New York with daughter Blue amid rumours of a rift in their marriage

As rapper Jay Z nestled little Blue Ivy in his arms during a sea side outing Sunday, Beyonce – dressed down in denim shorts and a hooded sweatshirt – followed closely behind.

Protective papa Jay Z carried the quickly growing two-year-old along the windy shore, making sure to defend her from the sea breeze by snuggling her into his arms.

The couple - who have recently seen reports emerge that their marriage is on the rocks - appeared to be showing a sign of unity as they ventured out.

In Touch Weekly, however, reports multi-millionaire hip-hop star Jay Z has been two-timing his wife with a New York hostess named Casey Cohen, who he reportedly sees at least twice a month.

The allegations come less than a month after a video surfaced showing Beyonce’s sister, Solange Knowles, attacking Jay Z in an elevator at the 2014 Met Gala – supposedly for having a girlfriend on the side.

Audra McDonald Makes Tony History 20 Years After Her First Win. Watch All 6 of Her Acceptance Speech

Audra McDonald made double history last night at the 2014 Tony Awards celebration, when she took home her 6th Tony Award win for her performance as Billie Holiday in "Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill" - 1.) She has become the first person to win in all four performance categories; and 2.) She has also broken the record for the most Tony Awards won by any performer.

McDonald beats a record she previously held with fellow winners Angela Lansbury and Julie Harris.

This is an enormous feat and a pretty big deal folks - something we should all take note of, and celebrate! Keep in mind that she did this in a relatively short period of time. She's not exactly an aging actress, who's had en entire lifetime on Broadway to accumulate this volume in accolades. She's just 43 years old, with her history-making 6-win Tony streak beginning in 1994, just 20 years ago, when she won the Tony for Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical - "Carousel." I suppose it's only fitting that she make history on the 20th anniversary of her very first win!

Also worth noting is that she's been nominated for a Tony award 8 times since 1994, and has now won 6 of the 8. Again, an incredible feat. For a little perspective, imagine an actress/actor being nominated for an Academy Award 8 times in 20 years, and winning 6 of those 8 times.

McDonald previously won Tony Awards for "Porgy and Bess," "A Raisin in the Sun," "Ragtime," "Master Class" and the aforementioned "Carousel."

Congratulations, Ms. McDonald!

Comedian and actor Rik Mayall has died aged 56

Comedian and actor Rik Mayall has died aged 56, his management has said.

Mayall was best-known for the TV shows The Young Ones and Bottom, both of which he appeared alongside Adrian Edmondson.

He also starred in several other programmes including The New Statesman, The Comic Strip and Blackadder.


The star was seriously ill after a quad bike accident in 1998 which left him in a coma for several days.

But he made a recovery and was working until recently.

Mayall said doctors had kept him alive on a life-support machine for five days and were about to turn it off when he began to show signs of life.

Speaking last year he said: "The main difference between now and before my accident is I'm just very glad to be alive.

"Other people get moody in their forties and fifties - men get the male menopause. I missed the whole thing. I was just really happy."

Mayall started on stage in a duo, The Dangerous Brothers, with long-time collaborator Edmondson after they met at Manchester University.

Mayall found fame playing would-be anarchist Rick in The Young Ones which ran from 1982 to 1984 in two six-part series.

The show featured anarchic, offbeat humour and it helped to bring alternative comedy to television in the 1980s.

The programme also featured Edmondson as punk Vyvyan, Nigel Planer as paranoid hippie Neil, and Christopher Ryan as shady Mike.

Mayall and Edmondson reprised their original act in the anarchic comedy Bottom.

A statement from Mayall's management, Brunskill, said: "We are deeply saddened to announce the death of Rik Mayall who passed away this morning.

"We will be issuing a further statement in the fullness of time."

One Direction worked really hard on their new fragrance "You & I"

The British boy band has announced they are coming out with their second fragrance, You & I, and decided to break the news in a pretty personal way. Forgoing the usual printed press release, Liam Payne recorded a short clip to introduce the group's new scent.

"Hey guys, so we've got some really really big news for you. We have a new fragrance coming out, it's coming out later this summer called You & I," Liam shares. "We've worked really hard on it. We tried to find a scent that we all like and we worked really hard on designing the packaging and the bottle as well. So, can't wait for you guys to see it—enjoy!"

The boy's first fragrance, One Moment, did phenomenally well. Before the pink bottle even hit the shelves it already had an insane waiting list. And in it's first week the debut scent earned more than $500,000.  No wonder the group is giving it another go—Clearly they know what success smells like.


The Voice's Cassadee Pope is the New Face of Proactive+

The power of Proactiv+ Photoshop

If Cassadee Pope, 24, looked especially radiant while picking up her first-ever CMT Award Wednesday (she nabbed Breakthrough Video of the Year for “Wasting All These Tears”), it’s partly because she was so thrilled to accept the award from her Voice mentor Blake Shelton — and partly because she’s got a new skincare routine.

The country star (and Voice season 3 champ) is the new face of Proactiv+ — which shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering she’s been loudly proclaiming her love for the brand since way back in 2012. But she says she was a latecomer to the skincare line.

“I never struggled with skin issues until I was in my 20s,” Pope tells PEOPLE. “It always made me feel self conscious. I was afraid to go on stage, especially if I saw video cameras close up on my face — I hated knowing the whole crowd was looking at my skin. That, of course, affected my performance in a negative way and I was less confident on stage.”

Though she was embarrassed to have fans see her bad skin, she’s not too shy to share her secret now that she’s figured out what works for her. “It’s important to me to let people know that I’ve found a solution to something I’ve always been insecure about,” she tells PEOPLE. “I feel as an artist, there’s always this obligation to come across strong and fearless. But we have insecurities like everyone else. Proactiv started making a difference on my skin as soon as the first day … [Now] I’m more confident on stage and I’m not afraid of cameras close up on my face, [and] I’m not constantly thinking ‘I know they see my pimples’ whenever I meet fans.”

And if landing a major beauty campaign wasn’t proof enough that Pope’s star is majorly on the rise, her success at the CMTs and CMA Fest just adds to the excitement “I’m still in shock about winning my first CMT award,” she tells PEOPLE. “I’m so thankful to the fans and their loyalty since day one. The fact that they believe in me this much just adds fuel to my fire and makes me want to continue to work even harder … to hear the [CMA Fest] crowd singing my lyrics back to me was surreal.”


Now that she's finally realized it's 2014 and ditched the Hot Topic highlights, she's even blander than before. She can still spew a mighty amount of bullshit though. Anything to get that paycheck.

Also, beauty post!

John Oliver hilariously sums up FIFA's corruption and his conflicted feelings for the World Cup

With the World Cup nearly here, a wider audience that is perhaps unfamiliar with FIFA's horribleness and the ethical conflict surrounding the tournament will be exposed to the constant grumblings of discontent in the media and the streets of Brazil. Comedian John Oliver — formerly of The Daily Show and now with his own similar program on HBO called Last Week Tonight — provided an excellent and hilarious overview of the situation on his show Sunday that neatly sums up the situation.

You might wonder how he can fill 13 minutes on just this subject alone, but he really just scrapes the surface of what Oliver calls a "comically grotesque organization." He compares the learning of their inner workings to watching Two Girls One Cup. And it only gets better/worse from there.

Since you've got nothing important to do until Brazil v Croatia kicks off on Thursday, take the time to watch this even if you're already intimately familiar with FIFA's terribleness.

36 Men Show Us What Real Men's Activists Look Like

The shootings in Isla Vista, Calif., sent chills down the backs of countless Americans over Memorial Day weekend.

Although this isn't the first mass shooting that has semblances of misogyny (in fact, a great many do), the 140-page manifesto of pure hatred against women and the YouTube video detailing Elliot Rodger's plans to slaughter "blond sluts" was a gruesome wake-up call for all of us.

How could an educated and privileged 22-year-old still believe that women should be in "concentration camps," stop having control over procreation and deserve to be killed because they have sexual agency?

But while Rodger's ideology may have been extreme, it was also frighteningly familiar. The way that we talk about women and the entitlement others have over their bodies is nothing new.

Whether it's in the way that women are blamed for their sexual harassment (grow a thicker skin, don't walk around wearing that), their rape (don't drink, keep your carry keys in your hands, don't stay out late) or their family planning outcomes (control your libido), there is nothing like the female body to bring out misogynistic entitlement at its worst.

Indeed, the shooting is not an isolated act of violence. The beliefs that motivated the gunman are rampant — and much more widely accepted then many would believe. In our culture, misogyny isn’t the exception, it’s still the rule.

In the wake of the tragedy, the hashtag #YesAllWomen quickly became a safe space of support and solidarity, a platform to share stories and fight back against the types of comments that too many women have encountered in their life. It also became a space for women to explain that entitlement of men over women has got to stop — sexism has got to stop — because it is literally killing us.

Ultimately, the #YesAllWomen rallying cry reached more than 1 million tweets in the days since the tragedy, outlasting even Kim Kardashian's wedding on Sunday. But women are not the only ones frustrated by our society's institutionalized misogyny. So many men, too, reported feeling disgusted by the attitudes of the shooter and his alleged peers, the "men's rights activists" that not only influenced Rodger, but publicly predicted more violence if men aren't given what they want.

Men deserve their own space to talk back to these "activists." Here is just a small part of that response, but you can find more responses or post your own on the hashtag #AllMenCan, because all men can have respect for women without ever becoming less of a man.

The Adult Lessons of YA Fiction

“When critics decide its time to pull up the gates and seal us all inside our castle of grown-up things, they cease to be people who deserve being listened to.”

So writes author John Warner, in his commentary during website The Morning News’s annual Tournament of Books literary bracket, after judge Natasha Vargas-Cooper classified John Green’s breakaway young-adult novel The Fault in Our Stars and Chris Ware’s graphic novel Building Stories (which is not young adult) as “juvenile.”

“So much of our culture has already been ceded to the grubby hands and blunted tastes of teenagers, I refuse to surrender my reading choices to them as well,” Vargas-Cooper wrote.

When something takes off the way young adult fiction has in recent years, you’re bound to get backlash. The latest naysayer was Ruth Graham, in her controversial Slate piece “Against YA,” published last week, which argued that adults should be embarrassed to read young adult books.

Vargas-Cooper and Graham express one of the two arguments I most commonly hear used to dismiss YA as unserious and unworthy. It boils down to, “It’s for children, and I’m not a child.” (The other argument is just “It’s bad,” which is the reductive dismissal of someone who doesn’t read YA but has heard of Twilight.)

Teens Who Stole Miley Cyrus' Maserati Were Armed with a Stolen Gun

Tylor and Naomi have both been charged with multiple counts of burglary and theft -- and Tylor got an additional charge of Grand Theft Firearm for the stolen gun.

Cosmos' Host Neil deGrasse Tyson Answers Unanswered Pop Culture Questions

Cosmos host Neil deGrasse Tyson has been opening viewers' eyes to the mysteries of the universe each week (Sundays at 9 p.m. on Fox), attempting to explain quantum physics, the origins of life, and the methodologies of science and scientific research... and the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive.

"It's a very warm feeling that people are feeling warm from it, for sure," deGrasse Tyson told Yahoo TV. "It's a delight to see people have a geek core within them awakened. Either the flame had been extinguished long ago or had never been ignited, maybe it was just a dim ember waiting to be fanned, but in any of these cases, people have sort of risen up and embraced science in general and the universe in particular. It's an endorsement, I think, of what it was to make Cosmos again, and a recognition that there was value to it."

His favorite geeky fan reaction says it all: "My favorite tweet of them all — because I was monitoring what people were saying — was just before the 9 o'clock hour when it was about to air, someone tweeted: "Shhhh! It's almost 9 p.m. Cosmos is ready to air. Neil Tyson is going to crack a knowledge egg on your a--." Now that is in vernacular! That's somebody who not only was excited for themselves — for what they were learning and what they were seeing — but they wanted other people to shut up and listen. I was very impressed by that enthusiasm, and that energy and candor. I didn't retweet it, but just search 'knowledge egg a--.' [Laughs.] it's got to be the only tweet ever to have those three words in it."

Jada, 42, was photographed kissing and holding hands with her 45-year-old husband on the beach in Hawaii. The couple was snapped as they giggled and twirled around on the beach (doesn't everybody?), appearing relaxed during their getaway.

BET's New Keke Palmer Talk Show Gets A Title, Debut Date & Promo Video Promising Freshness

The daytime talk show space continues to get crowded (Tyra Banks most recently announced that she'll be jumping back into that space via ABC), as Keke Palmer and BET are hoping to strike gold with a new talk show targeting so-called millenials - essentially those in her age group - which Palmer will of course host.

Tentatively-titled "#JUSTKeke," the network has ordered an initial 4-week run, starting on June 30, airing daily, Monday to Friday.

The 20-year-old Palmer will become the youngest talk show host in TV history, with "#JUSTKeke," besting the likes of Ricki Lake, who was 25 when she begun hosting her 1990's daytime talk show, also aimed at her generation at the time.

Meet Manolo (Luna), Maria (Saldana) and Joaquin (Tatum), three childhood friends caught in a love triangle, where Manolo and Joaquin are in the fight to win Maria’s heart.

“Manolo and my character Joaquin were best friends, we were all like the Three Musketeers,” said Channing Tatum, discussing his first major animated role, according to USA Today.

5 Marvel Characters We'd Like to See Lupita Nyong'o Play

Few actors have years as good as the one Lupita Nyong’o is currently having right now. Fresh off of an Academy Award for her critically acclaimed performance in Best Picture winner "12 Years a Slave," Nyong’o has just signed on for a role in "Star Wars: Episode VII." Not only does Nyong’o’s involvement in J.J. Abrams’ "Star Wars" sequel up the expectations for that film considerably, it also means that Nyong’o is going to use her momentum and time in the spotlight to defy convention by traveling to genres dominated by white male actors. This is a very welcome change.

This would also be a welcome change for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, should Nyong’o continue to balance her filmography with both dramatic and blockbuster roles. So far, there have been very few women of color in Marvel’s big screen output; Zoe Saldana’s Gamora is the only one that comes to mind. That’s a shame considering how progressive the MCU films have been regarding men of color and female roles. Here’s hoping that Marvel’s planning on fixing that, and that they’ll have Lupita Nyong’o put her talents to work in one of these roles.

Matthew McCona-slay makes it all seem easy

With his perpetually sun-kissed good looks, Oscar win as best actor for "Dallas Buyer's Club" and rave reviews for his HBO series "True Detective," Matthew McConaughey's latest role may be starring as Hollywood's golden boy.

The 44-year-old actor, who lives in Austin, Texas, has also come a long way in the style department, evolving from roomy jackets and boot-cut jeans to sharply tailored Dolce & Gabbana suits. Since 2007, McConaughey has been the face of Dolce & Gabbana's the One for Men fragrance and last year he made a foray into fashion with the launch of JKL (jklbrand.com ), a men's sportswear and swimwear line that shares a name with his Beverly Hills-based Just Keep Livin Foundation (jklivinfoundation.org ), created in 2008 as a tribute to his late father.

Another part that McConaughey proudly plays is father to his three children with Camila Alves: 5-year-old son Levi, 4-year-old daughter Vida and 1-year-old son Livingston. We recently had the chance to chat with the actor (whose upcoming pictures include the sci-fi film "Interstellar," movie sequel "Magic Mike XXL" and Gus Van Sant drama "Sea of Trees") about fatherhood, fashion and fragrance.

In 2005, you said, "A man should smell like a man. I haven't worn deodorant for 20 years." Does that still hold true?

I do wear some deodorant and, at the right times, fragrance. Fragrance [often] makes a first impression; your scent can hit people's noses even before they look you in the eye. It's how they know you're coming or "What is that that's coming?" What I like about the One for Men is that it's not so heavy that it covers your [natural] scent. The grapefruit and basil on the front end are nice and light, springlike and youthful, while the back end is more classically masculine.

Katy Perry and Diplo Prove They're Still Together With Photos From Jamaican Vacation

Katy Perry and Diplo basically confirmed that they're still together, after they both shared pics from their Jamaican getaway over the weekend.

The famous DJ and producer (born Thomas Wesley Pentz) snapped a pic of his feet in a hammock, while the pop star posted a selfie in the same exact setting on her Instagram. Diplo has since deleted his Instagram picture.

Fans immediately noticed that the hammock was the same based on the red printed fabric—so much for staying under the radar!
"Swaying on the hammock under mango trees, fresh freckles on my face, everything irie," the "Birthday" singer wrote alongside the serene photo.

And while they haven't been spotted together in the recent weeks, it's safe to say that the duo is still spending quality time together.
