Chrissy Teigen cracks jokes from her hospital bed
It's been a difficult week for Chrissy Teigen, who was back in the hospital for endometriosis surgery on Thursday, Feb. 4, within days of when her son, Jack, would have been born, had he survived pregnancy complications last fall. Despite the emotional anniversary and physical pain, she was staying positive as she shared a video from her hospital bed. "Please endo this pain lol lol lol lol lol ahahahahahahahaha," she joked in the caption on her Instagram Story (via ET). Endometriosis is a relatively common — and often painful — condition in which tissue that should line the uterus grows outside the uterus instead. On Wednesday, Chrissy tweeted about her pregnancy loss, sharing that she was "a bit off" because her "little jack would have been born this week," and her painful cramps felt "exactly like baby kicks." The cookbook author and model shares two children, Luna, 4, and Miles, 2, with husband John Legend.

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are reportedly 'inseparable' and 'not interested in dating others'
When Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott called time on their relationship of two-plus years in 2019, TMZ reported the two had simply "fallen out of love." That theory seems a lot less plausible now. Though the on-off couple hasn't formally labeled their current status, a source tells ET, "Kylie, Travis and [their 3-year-old daughter] Stormi are relatively inseparable for the most part," adding, "They are doing a great job co-parenting together with little to no drama. Neither of them are interested in dating others at this time." The insider also said Kylie, who revealed in a chat with a fan last year that she eventually wants four kids, still "absolutely wants more children."

The Weeknd finally explains those face bandages
As The Weeknd prepares for his Super Bowl Halftime Show, the singer's finally addressed the meaning of the bandages he's had on his face and head since last year. The look began with his 2020 video for "Blinding Lights," which shows him getting roughed up in a fight while out on the town. After that, The Weeknd wore the same red suit and face bandages live performances. At The American Music Awards in November, he accepted three major awards in the same getup. Ditto at his recent performance on "Saturday Night Live." "The significance of the entire head bandages is reflecting on the absurd culture of Hollywood celebrity and people manipulating themselves for superficial reasons to please and be validated," the Canada-born star told Variety this week. "It's all a progression and we watch The Character's storyline hit heightened levels of danger and absurdity as his tale goes on," he said. The latest stage of the evolution appears to be a reference to "The Character" getting Botox and fillers, as his appearance suggests in the new video for "Save Your Tears." "I suppose you could take that being attractive isn't important to me but a compelling narrative is," he added.
Gigi Hadid gets candid about her 14-hour labor and home birth
In Vogue's latest cover story, new mom Gigi Hadid opens up about her 14-hour labor, her home birth and the parenting plans she and Zayn Malik have for their first child, Khai, who arrived in September. The 25-year-old supermodel and her singer beau, 28, planned to have their little girl in a hospital in New York City at first, but ultimately decided to have the baby at their home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, with the help of a doula — but no epidural. "I was an animal woman," she says, giggling about how she must have looked while in labor all that time. Gigi's mom, Yolanda Hadid, her sister, Bella Hadid and of course Zayn were all by her side for the whole process, she said, recalling that Zayn "caught" Khai when she emerged. "It didn't even click that she was out," Gigi said. "I was so exhausted, and I looked up and he's holding her. It was so cute." As for the pain? "I had to dig deep," she said. "I knew it was going to be the craziest pain in my life, but you have to surrender to it and be like, 'This is what it is.' I loved that. There definitely was a point where I was like, I wonder what it would be like with an epidural, how it would be different. My midwife looked at me and was like, 'You're doing it. No one can help you. You're past the point of the epidural anyway, so you'd be pushing exactly the same way in a hospital bed.'" The experience was intense, though. "Afterward, Z and I looked at each other and were like, we can have some time before we do that again," Gigi shared. Asked where the couple plans to raise their little one — Gigi also owns a luxury apartment in New York City — she said she's leaning towards the farm where they've been living throughout the pandemic. "The greenery and the farm-y lifestyle are similar to what made me feel really centered as a kid, and I think that's really important to Zayn and me," Gigi explained. "I think that just giving your child the opportunity to explore different interests is such a beautiful thing."

One day after earning his first Golden Globe nomination, Chadwick Boseman made SAG Awards history.

Chadwick, who died following a private battle with cancer in August, is up for Best Actor for his performance opposite Viola Davis in "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom" and Best Supporting Actor in Spike Lee's "Da 5 Bloods." He's also nominated alongside his cast mates from of both films for the Outstanding Ensemble SAG Award. He shot both movies after his cancer diagnosis, while receiving secret chemotherapy treatments. Reflecting on his character and contribution to film, Viola told ET in December, "There was nothing about Chadwick that was anything other than a life force, that was anything other than bringing his utmost to the work. The dedication. The integrity. … He's one of those people you meet every once in a lifetime that are focused on every single moment. Every single moment is intentional." The 2021 SAG Awards air April 4 on TNT and TBS.
Sia deletes Twitter account amid new wave of 'Music' criticism from autism rights advocates
On the heels of her directorial debut's two Golden Globes nominations this week, Sia has apologized again to the autism community for her film, "Music," and deactivated her Twitter account. In a series of tweets prior to her deletion of the whole feed, the singer said she's "been listening" to critics on matters ranging from her casting of a neurotypical actor (Maddie Ziegler) as a nonverbal autistic person to scenes that feature the character in restraints. "I promise, have been listening," she tweeted, per Variety. "The motion picture MUSIC will, moving forward, have this warning at the head of the movie," Sia tweeted, followed by the warning, which reads: 'MUSIC in no way condones or recommends the use of restraint on autistic people. There are autistic occupational therapists that specialize in sensory processing who can be consulted to explain safe ways to provide proprioceptive, deep-pressure feedback to help w meltdown safety.'" In another tweet, she wrote, "I'm sorry," and added, "I plan to remove the restraint scenes from all future printings," she wrote. "I listened to the wrong people and that is my responsibility, my research was clearly not thorough enough, not wide enough." After that, her twitter was deactivated. Autusm rights groups have also called Sia out for some of the terminology used in the film and for potentially "exercising undue privilege by making a film centering on autism," according to Variety. In response to the backlash last fall, she tweeted that "Music," which also stars Kate Hudson, :is both a love letter to caregivers and to the autism community." "Music" is due out in select IMAX theaters on Feb. 10.

Jamie Lee Curtis is now 22 years sober. The "Knives Out" star, 62, announced the anniversary on Wednesday, Feb. 3, sharing an Instagram photo of herself seated before what appears to be a bottle of tequila, a glass of the booze in her hand. "A LONG time ago… In a galaxy far, far away… I was a young STAR at WAR with herself. I didn't know it then. I chased everything. I kept it hidden. I was a sick as my secrets," Jamie captioned the shot. "With God's grace and the support of MANY people who could relate to all the 'feelings' and a couple of sober angels…I've been able to stay sober, one day at a time, for 22 years. I was a high bottom, pun kind of intended, so the rare photo of me proudly drinking in a photo op is very useful to help me remember. To all those struggling and those who are on the path…MY HAND IN YOURS." A few years back, Jamie opened up about the opioid addiction se later developed and why nixing it and the alcohol is so important to her. "I'm breaking the cycle that has basically destroyed the lives of generations in my family," she told People in 2018. "Getting sober remains my single greatest accomplishment … bigger than my husband, bigger than both of my children and bigger than any work, success, failure. Anything.
Florence Welch sends 'love and support' to others as she marks her seventh sober anniversary
Jamie Lee Curtis isn't the only star in recovery who's celebrating a sobriety birthday this week. On Tuesday, Feb. 2, Florence and the Machine's Florence Welch, 34, shared a painting of a "7" with a heart around it on Instagram. "I am 7 years sober today. I send my love and support to anyone who is struggling," she wrote alongside the image. "If you are feeling shaky around ED issues, drugs or alcohol, I completely understand" she continued. "The desire to disassociate is so strong. But please don't give up. We are going to need you on the other side.♥️ x X." The singer detailed her history of substance abuse and eating disorders in a candid essay for British Vogue in 2019, explaining that "eating disorders are rife" in her family and describing how she always struggled with the worry that she, "was wrong, that I was not good enough, not smart enough, not thin enough." At the time, she wrote that "the judgment choir … still sings now, though not as loudly or as often," and that when she is confronted by those anxieties she does her best not to "self-medicate" with alcohol "or starvation."
Denzel Washington on why law enforcement officials have his 'utmost respect'
Over the course of his Oscar-winning career, Denzel Washington has played a whole lot of cop characters — 13, to be exact. The latest comes with his new thriller, "The Little Things," which sees him playing a "disgraced" sheriff's deputy on the trail of a serial killer. And as the 66-yar-old told Yahoo in a recent interview, he has nothing but love and support for police officers, in spite of America's ongoing issues with racially fueled police brutality. "I have the utmost respect for what they do, for what our soldiers do, [people] that sacrifice their lives," he said. "I just don't care for people who put those kind of people down. If it weren't for them, we would not have the freedom to complain about what they do." Denzel went on to recall how his experience on a ride-along with a sergeant showed him firsthand how essential the work of police can be. "We got a call of a man outside his house with a rifle that was distraught," he recalled. "… He told me to sit in the car, which I was gonna do. I wasn't getting out. He got out. As he got out, another car came screaming up and two young people jumped out screaming. As it turned out, it was their grandfather. This policeman defused the entire situation by just remaining calm." He added: "But it showed me in an instant how they can lose their life. … He didn't overreact. He could've pulled his gun out and shot the people that came up driving real fast. He could've shot the old man that was distraught and a bit confused, I think he was suffering a little bit from dementia. But in an instant it taught me, and I never forgot it, what our law enforcement people have to deal with moment to moment, second to second." "The Little Things" is in theaters and on HBO Max now.
Phoebe Bridgers slams Marilyn Manson's band, label, management for being complicit in his allegedly abusive behavior
Singer Phoebe Bridgers, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and burlesque star Dita Von Teese have all weighed in on allegations that surfaced this week from at least six women claiming Marilyn Manson abused them sexually, physically and/or psychologically. "I went to Marilyn Manson's house when I was a teenager with some friends. I was a big fan," Phoebe shared on Twitter on Thursday, Feb. 3 (per People). "He referred to a room in his house as the 'r*pe room', I thought it was just his horrible frat boy sense of humor. I stopped being a fan. I stand with everyone who came forward," she said. "The label knew, management knew, the band knew." Dita, who was married to Marilyn, posted that the stories coming out, "do not match my personal experience during our 7 years together as a couple," then urged, "those of you who have incurred abuse to take steps to heal and the strength to fully realize yourself." Earlier this week, Trent shared a statement with Pitchfork in which he reiterated previous denouncements of the singer and denied a claim in Marilyn's memoir that the two assaulted a woman together. The story came from a magazine interview that was never published due to what the book describes as "unethical interview procedures in order to extract information from Mr. Manson." Marilyn, meanwhile, denied any allegations of wrong doing in a statement on social media in which he called the claims "horrible distortions of reality."
