ShowBiz Minute: Cosby, Met Gala, ‘Sherlock Holmes’
NEW YORK (AP) — Divine designs floated up the red carpet at Monday's religion-themed Met Gala in shimmering golds, reds and fuchsia, in crowns and in crosses, and even a pair of giant wings.
One lesson of the night: If anyone can make a mitre modern, it's Rihanna. The Grammy-winning artist — never one to shy away from a grand entrance — arrived dripping in pearls and crystals in a Maison Margiela by John Galliano minidress, ornate robe and beaded papal headgear.
MILAN (AP) — Gigi Hadid and Vogue Italia have both apologized for the May Vogue Italia cover that showed the model with a dark skin tone, a distortion that unleashed a social media backlash and underlined the lack of diversity in the fashion industry.
In a post on Instagram on Thursday, Hadid said diversity in the industry needs to be addressed and that she does not want "to take opportunities away from anyone else."
Zayn Malik has admitted he thought he'd be "in love" with Gigi Hadid for "the rest of his life".
The 25-year-old musician split from his model girlfriend earlier this year after over two years of dating, and after dropping his new single 'Let Me' this week, he has revealed he penned the romantic track when he was still planning on spending the rest of his life with his former beau.
Zayn Malik is "interested" in following Harry Styles into acting.
The 25-year-old singer will "never say never" if an opportunity presented itself to branch out - just like his former One Direction bandmate, who made his acting debut in 2017's 'Dunkirk' - and Zayn has already displayed his acting potential in his steamy music video for new single 'Let Me', in which he portrays a man wrapped up in the world of crime.
Pittsburgh native Christina Aguilera is known for her over-the-top voice, personality and make-up, typically sporting mounds of teased hair, full, painted lips and several layers of eyelashes in photographs and for performances.
So her fans may be pleasantly surprised to see the pretty, fresh-scrubbed, girl-next-door, almost unrecognizable look as she appears on the cover of the New York-based magazine Paper.
A closer look shows a sprinkle of freckles across the bridge of her nose.
Zayn Malik has reportedly splashed out over $10 million on a New York apartment following his split from Gigi Hadid.
The former One Direction singer had been living in the city with his girlfriend of over two years, but after announcing their split earlier this week, it has now been revealed the hunk has parted with an impressive amount of cash for a pad of his own.

Veiled women from India's Rajput community protested the Bollywood film "Padmavati," which has been postponed indefinitely after opposition grew over the film's alleged depiction of a relationship between a Hindu queen and a Muslim ruler. It is based on a 16th century Sufi epic in which a Rajput queen chose to kill herself rather than be captured by the sultan. A Hindu nationalist party official offered a bounty for the beheading of the actress and director, and the film hasn't yet been certified by India's film censors.

Yolanda Hadid’s Lyme disease was once misdiagnosed
Yolanda Hadid was originally told her Lyme disease was chronic fatigue syndrome.
The 53-year-old television personality has revealed that although she now knows she suffers from the tick-transmitted disease - which her daughter Bella, 20, and son Anwar, 18, both suffer from - she was originally told by doctors that her lethargic nature was down to the less serious chronic fatigue syndrome, in which sufferers experience extreme tiredness.
Zayn Malik always "tries to do right" by his girlfriend Gigi Hadid.
The 24-year-old singer has been in a relationship with the 22-year-old model for almost two years, and has said the pair try not to think too much about the pressures of dating in the spotlight, and keep their focus on making one another happy.
