In a true #throwback moment, Britney Spears reminisced about her singing career this week on Instagram posting a clip from a little-known showcase she did for her debut album in Singapore, back in 1998.
Britney wrote: "Geez … My mom sent this to me and reminded me that I can sing 🎶😂🙈🎤 !!!! She said “You never sing anymore … you need to again !!!!” I’ve actually never watched this performance … it’s definitely from a while ago !!!! It’s from one of the first trips I took alone ... mostly I just remember saying “WOW Singapore” 🇸🇬😍!!!!!"
Ana de Armas quickly shut down talk of a reconciliation with ex Ben Affleck last night. Gossip blogs started wondering after she posted a selfie wearing a half heart necklace, which apparently Ben Affleck had also worn during their relationship. She shut that speculation down with many nopes.
A source close to Brad Pitt that's totally not Brad Pitt's PR team tells Page Six that Brad is absolutely heartbroken by the recent story about his abuse allegations. Also, the kids have been interviewed by court-appointed therapists, but it is believed recent reports that eldest son Maddox, 19, gave negative testimony against Pitt are untrue.
That totally well-meaning source tells Page Six: “Brad is heartbroken that Angelina has gone that route. There’s a lot of emotion left after their marriage. He has taken responsibility for his actions and owned up to his past issues, he’s stopped drinking. The marriage was very passionate and toxic at times and — like all couples — they had fights, but also shared many good times together. He has talked about his drink and drug problems during the time they were together.”
Brad Pitt's team would also like you to know that Pitt has never been arrested or charged for any offense during his marriage to Jolie, nor were there any police reports made about any allegations of spousal abuse, and he was never charged for the airplane incident.
“Brad and his camp has never attacked Angelina. But his camp feels this leak was calculated to sway opinion ahead of the conclusion of their trial,” the source said. “Brad feels like he’s being more and more isolated from his children, and he’s devastated about it.”
OP would like to remind everyone that Angelina and her camp leaked nothing to anyone, The Blast obtained the public court records.
David Dobrik amassed millions of subscribers on YouTube as part of a group called the Vlog Squad. But an investigation detailing sexual assault allegations against a former Vlog Squad member has led many viewers to angrily re-evaluate his work.https://t.co/jpcNBl9FzP
Last week, popular YouTube act the "Vlog Squad" faced accusations that member "Durte Dom" [TW: Rape]raped a woman (pseudonym Hannah) while she was too intoxicated to consent after being fed hard liquor at a Vlog Squad party. The leader and face of the group, David Dobrik (whom you may know from all those viral Tesla giveaways), filmed pieces of the assault and uploaded a vlog to his channel that used the footage as part of a consensual threesome plot. Original post with further details here.
Dobrik's brief, insubstantial apology for his part in the assault was met with criticism, and he has now been dropped by many of his sponsors, among them: Hello Fresh (“We can confirm that we are no longer working with David Dobrik or any member of the Vlog Squad and do not have any plans to work with them again in the future"), Dollar Shave Club ("We’ve made the decision to end our relationship and cancel all planned activity"), EA Sports ("We are not currently working with [Dobrik] nor do we have any plans to in future"), DoorDash ("DoorDash profoundly condemns the behavior of the Vlog Squad members, and we have terminated our sponsorship of David Dobrik’s podcast ‘Views'"), and HBO Max ("We can confirm that David and the Vlog Squad are not on the list for any upcoming campaigns, and we don't intend to work with them again in the future"). SeatGeek, one of Dobrik's biggest sponsors, have not yet dropped him but have stated that they are aware of the allegations and reviewing the situation and their partnership.
Finally, Dobrik announced late on Sunday night that he was stepping down from his photo sharing app Dispo. This news followed a statement from venture capital firm Spark Capital that they were severing all ties with the company in light of the allegations against Dobrik (Spark Capital spearheaded Dispo's $20 million Series A financing round in February).

Riley Keough has completed her training as a “death doula”, eight months after the suicide of her brother Benjamin. She announced on Instagram that the role had helped her become more prepared for the inevitable.
She said in part, “I think it’s so important to be educated on conscious dying and death the way we educate ourselves on birth and conscious birthing. We prepare ourselves so rigorously for the entrance and have no preparation for our exit. So I’m so grateful for this community and to be able to contribute what I can.”
A death doula, or a death midwife, is someone who specialises in end-of-life care and the after-death process with the family of the deceased.
Hot off winning a Writers Guild Award, Emerald Fennell will court the wrath of Paul Dini by writing the script for a Zatanna film, based on the superhero stage magician who is actually a real magician. The piece says there’s no word on a director, so it’s possible she might end up doing that too.
Orlando Bloom was trending on Sunday after his latest interview was released.
Bloom did an interview with the U.K.’s The Sunday Times. Bloom discussed a typical day in his life, outlining his diet, his healthy lifestyle, life with his family, and his film and TV production work.
How he starts his morning:
"I like to earn my breakfast so I’ll just have some green powders that I mix with brain octane oil, a collagen powder for my hair and nails, and some protein. It’s all quite L.A. really. Then I’ll go for a hike while I listen to some Nirvana or Stone Temple Pilots."
On his production company and working with Amazon:
"I spend a lot of time dreaming about roles for myself and others— for minorities and women." "I'm trying to be a voice for everybody.”
Genuinely thought the Orlando Bloom interview in The Sunday Times was a spoof.
Co-host of the Game Grumps, Dan Avidan, has been accused of grooming underage fans after a Reddit post went viral yesterday afternoon. Numerous women stated that they were in contact with Avidan while underage, with conversations turning sexual after they turned 18.
[Youtubers at it again]After meeting Avidan in person and having sex with him, all contact ceased. Redditors also found that Avidan was the basis for a character in his ex-assistant's #MeToo inspired play. The character, "John", was described as a musician with a large Internet following that regularly texted and slept with women "20 years his junior". Avidan has yet to release a statement.
The Game Grumps are no stranger to controversy, as former co-host Jontron came under fire in 2017 for espousing far-right beliefs. Jontron also decided to take to Twitter to take a swipe at the Game Grumps (referring to a playthrough that ended due to Avidan joining the show). The Game Grumps have yet to release a statement.
On Monday, Anna Faris welcomed Gwyneth Paltrow on her podcast, Anna Faris Is Unqualified. The actresses spoke about their relationships.
"My two other marriages were with actors and I don't think we did a great job of eliminating competitiveness," Faris said. "Or at least I didn't, being a proud person, and not wanting to reveal vulnerability."

- Rupert Grint spoke to Esquire about why he felt he needed to condemn Voldemort Rowling's transphobic views, while still respecting her. “I am hugely grateful [for] everything that she's done. I think that she's extremely talented, and I mean, clearly, her works are genius, but yeah, I think also you can have huge respect for someone and still disagree with things like that. Sometimes silence is even louder. I felt like I had to because I think it was important to. [...] I'm not an authority on the subject. Just out of kindness, and just respecting people. I think it's a valuable group that I think needs standing up for.”

Alice guest starred on Middleditch's show Silicon Valley and did decidedly not have a good experience. Back in 2018 she slammed his co-star TJ Miller along with the whole cast:
Thank you! I hope to not ruin it for you, but TJ Miller was a bully and petulant brat and pretty much everyone who had any power on that (almost all male) set, including the male cast members, enabled him and were complicit in his unprofessionalism. They can fuck off forever. https://t.co/YxGHiSYMrJ
