Kylie Jenner teases a couples shoot with Travis Scott for Playboy
Guess who's headed to the pages of Playboy? Yep, according to a new post on Kylie Jenner's Instagram, she and Travis Scott are set to appear in the iconic magazine — and not just as interview subjects. Sharing a derriere-centric, NSFW photo of herself in a tan cowboy hat and seemingly nothing else but her shirtless boyfriend's arms, which he has draped around her in a protective hug, the 21-year-old wrote, "When Houston meets LA .. 💛 @playboy #ComingSoon." According to Us Weekly, the post garnered more than 1 million likes "in a matter of minutes." Ohhhhhhhhh good morning!" Kylie's sister Khloe Kardashian wrote in the comments, adding a "wow" and a "Shhhooooookkt" to the thread. Kylie's sisters have all posed nude in the past — Kim Kardashian West appeared in Playboy in 2007, Khloe posed nude for a PETA ad in 2008, Kourtney Kardashian stripped down for DuJour magazine in 2014 and Kendall Jenner shot a series of black and white nude portraits for Mert Atlas. But at 22, Kylie will be the youngest sib to go au naturel for the camera.
Melanie Griffith thinks Dakota Johnson, Chris Martin are 'an awesome couple'
No complaints, here! After a brief split, Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin are very much back together — and Dakota's mom is all for it. "I love my daughter's boyfriend," she gushed to People this week, adding, "I think that they're an awesome couple." Dakota, 29, was first linked to the 42-year-old Coldplay frontman in October 2017. He remains close with his ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, who reportedly "pushed" Chris and Dakota to work things out earlier this year. Melanie, meanwhile, was similarly enthusiastic about her daughter's relationship last year, telling People she "adores" Chris.

You can thank Mila Kunis and Adele for Ashton Kutcher's creepy 'stache
We all owe a big "thank you" to Jimmy Fallon and "The Tonight Show" for getting to the bottom of one of the pop culture mysteries of the year — and that is, why the super-'70s "lip jewelry," Ashton Kutcher? Asked if the 'stache is for a role, Ashton assured Jimmy it is not. "No, this is for real life. It's kind of crazy. I never intended to have this. I don't think I'd look good with it, but I'm keeping it," he said (via E! News). He then proceeded to share a hilarious backstory involving his wife, Mila Kunis, and their pal, Adele, who threw a theme party for her 31st birthday this spring. The day he and Mila were due at the bash, Mila told Ashton the theme was 1970s New Year's. "I'm like, 'Oh, well, we were both on 'That '70s Show.' I think we've got this, right?'" he recalled. Donning bell bottoms, boots, a vest and a scarf, he realized his 2019 beard didn't match the outfit's vibe. "… I'm like, 'Oh, I'm going '70s 'stache. It's gonna happen,'" he continued. "I whittle everything down and it's thin. I mean, it's a high school boy trying to grow a mustache thin. But it looks great for the party." Except that when they got to the party, they learned the theme was actually 1930s New Year's. "I look like Burt Reynolds from 'Boogie Nights,'" he joked. "What are you gonna be like, 'I got the decade wrong?' So I'm just playing it off like this is how I'm doing it these days. And I'm like, 'What's up Jay-Z, yeah this is my thing now!' It was really awkward." That was months ago, of course. Now, he said, "it's a spite 'stache … this is payback. It's a full blown spite 'stache." Spite-inspired though it may be, Mila has grown to appreciate the facial hair. "She likes it now," he said. "So now I can't get rid of it."
North and Saint West get along better since their baby brother was born
It's no secret Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West's kids, North, 6, and Saint, 3, have had trouble getting along in the past. Their new little brother Psalm seems to be changing that dynamic, though. "My two older kids would fight a little bit and now, since the baby's here, everyone gets along, everyone loves each other," Kim told ET this week. "I'm rolling with it. It just really is zen. It feels really equal and calm and great." She noted that there's something about "having four" kids that makes it "more zen" at home than it had been with three (Kim and Kanye also share 19-month-old Chicago). Not that more would necessarily be better. "Because I am so busy doing so many other things, I want to make sure each kid gets so much of my attention," she cautioned. "I would do even numbers, so I could go two more, but I won't. I think … [I'd] go crazy."
Lea Michele opens up about her struggles with PCOS
At 33, Lea Michele's never felt healthier. But as she tells Health for the magazine's October cover story, that feeling is relatively new. After wrapping her long-running show, "Glee" in early 2015, Lea began noticing changes in her body. A longtime proponent of wellness and self-care, she was no longer dancing on a daily basis and her metabolism slowed down. Within just over a year, she suddenly had acne that wouldn't quit and was struggling to maintain her weight. It turned out she has a hormonal imbalance called PCOS, or polycystic ovary syndrome. "The side effects can be brutal — like weight gain and bad skin," she explains. "Growing up, I had terrible skin. I went on Accutane three times. I was put on every medication that you could imagine to help my skin. Luckily, birth control was a savior for me when I was in my teens. And then when I was in my late 20s, I realized I wanted to detox my body of all medications. That's when everything happened — the return to bad skin and, this time, weight gain. I didn't know what was going on." At first, medication seemed to be the only treatment anyone could come up with. "I don't shun people for needing or wanting to take medication, but for me, I knew something wasn't right. I just felt medication wasn't going to be the final cure," she says. Finally, she found the doctor who diagnosed her with the condition, which she says "explained everything." Lea was already a healthy eater, she says, but she got even more serious about plant-based, fresh foods after her diagnosis — and so far, so great. Now that she's able to manage the PCOS through diet, Lea says she feels like she's "at the healthiest place in my entire life." She adds: "It's not that I'm the thinnest, because I'm not the thinnest I've been. But when I was the thinnest, I was not being the healthiest. I'm definitely the most mentally, physically, and spiritually sound that I've ever been."
Chance The Rapper announces delayed tour kickoff
Chance the Rapper's fans will have to wait to see his new music live. Like Cardi B, who put her tour plans on hold after the birth of her daughter, Kulture, the Chicago-based artist has decided to take a break from work so he can be with his newborn son, Marli. "I thought it over for the past week and I've decided to push back my tour," he said on Instagram on Monday, Sept. 9. He went on to explain how marrying Kristen Corley, welcoming their second child and releasing his debut album in such a short span of time left him unavailable to attend to the needs of his family. "This year has been one of the greatest of my life; Marriage, new baby, first album etc. But with it being so eventful it has also been very strenuous having to divide my time and energy between family and work," he wrote. "When Kensli was born, I went on tour 2 weeks later and missed some of the most important milestones in her life, but more importantly I was absent when her mother needed me the most. At this point as a husband and father of two I realize that I can't make that mistake again. I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising Kensli and Marli." He closed by telling fans the tour will now kick off Jan. 15, 2020 — which he said he hopes is enough time for fans to "understand and forgive" him for the change.
Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan highlight mental health support options 'to ensure no one goes through a crisis alone'
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan continued their mission to use social media as a force for positive change this week with an Instagram post marking World Suicide Prevention Day on Tuesday, Sept. 10. In particular, they focused on getting the word out about various services in the U.K. that can provide free, easily accessed support for anyone who may be struggling. "This World Suicide Prevention Day, we would like to spread the available support far and wide to ensure that no-one goes through a crisis alone," the couple posted. "Please use or share the below accounts today, or on any given day, to a friend, colleague or even a complete stranger, that may be suffering – because wherever you are, you are not alone."

William and Kate also shared a message of encouragement to those battling mental health crises, posting a video about the Shout service along with the reminder that "there are a thousand ways to start a conversation about your crisis, @GiveUsAShoutInsta is here for all of them." On Monday, William spent some time with fire fighters while launching a special extension of Crisis Text Line (which helms Shout) that specializes in helping first responders whose stressful work situations leave them prone to special mental health needs.Though William, Harry, Kate and Meghan no longer share a charity, they continue to collaborate on their Heads Together mental health awareness initiative,
Viola Davis, 54, named L'Oréal Paris brand ambassador: 'It feels surreal'
Introducing the new face of L'Oréal Paris! As the company's latest brand ambassador, Viola Davis, 54, is set to star in multi-media ad campaigns for L'Oréal's Age Perfect line beginning next month, according to People. "It feels surreal," she recently told the magazine. "When I thought of beauty and femininity when I was a young scrappy girl growing up in Central Falls, Rhode Island, I didn't associate it with myself," she explains. "I didn't think that I had all those attributes that women who are seen like that should have." That she's now able to "reject so much of those notions" makes teaming up with the brand come at what feels like the "perfect time," she says. "The whole L'Oréal moniker, 'I'm worth it,' always gives me chills," adds the "How To Get Away With Murder" star. "I think that statement is everything. It's the sort of mantra we should tell all our little girls." Other celebrity brand ambassadors for the line include Eva Longoria, Helen Mirren, Elle Fanning, Céline Dion, Aja Naomi King and Camila Cabello.
William H. Macy pens a letter to the court on behalf of Felicity Huffman ahead of her sentencing
It was revealed last week that Felicity Huffman submitted a letter on her own behalf to the judge handling her college admissions scandal case in which she admitted her "desperation to be a good mother" led her to pay $15,000 to get a proctor to correct her daughter's SAT answers. Now, People reports Felicity's husband, William H. Macy, has submitted a letter, as well. Explaining that after her arrest, Felicity's "relationship with her daughters [Sophie, 19, and Georgia, 17] exploded," the actor wrote in candid terms about the "rebuilding" that will be required to fix the relationships. He explained that Felicity grew up with a mother who was "sometimes violent," leaving her to be "raised by either her sisters or, being the youngest, left to her own devices." William told the judge how Felicity moved to Los Angeles at 15 to become an actress and lived with an adult family friend, enrolled in high school and made it to acting classes and auditions without the support of a parent. "I think the result of her unstructured upbringing was a determination that her children would always have a mother there backing them up," he wrote. Ahead of Sophia's arrival into their lives, William said "Felicity threw herself into parenting … read mountains of books and … sought out parents whose children impressed her and picked their brains on child-rearing." he also acknowledged that, "motherhood has, from the very beginning, frightened Felicity and she has not carried being a mom easily." Before signing off, he told the judge about Sophia's hysterical reaction to news of her mother's arrest and how she lost the chance to audition for the school she hoped to attend (which doesn't require SAT scores). He said Sophia now struggles with nightmares "from the FBI agents waking her that morning with guns drawn" and that the whole family is in therapy. Prosecutors have recommended Felicity get one month behind bars, one year of supervised release and a fine of $20,000. Her sentencing is slated for Friday, Sept. 13.
Shia LaBeouf reflects on writing his new film, the autobiographical 'Honey Boy,' while in rehab
This fall, Shia LaBeouf makes his debut as a screenwriter with "Honey Boy," an autobiographical story in which he plays a character who represents his own abusive father. Speaking to People at the Toronto International Film Festival, he explained how the story came about and how he was able to translate such a heavy personal tale to the screen. "I was in a court-ordered rehab facility and it was part of sussing out my past, flashlight to your soul, trying to get to know myself, like a shedding of skin in a way," he recalled. "I put it on a piece of paper like they told me, and then I get home and read it and it felt like it was in script form,," he continued. "I wound up sending all of my stuff to Alma who's one of my closest friends and now a full-blown collaborator, so I was sending her all these pages and as the pages kept developing she's like 'Whoa, this is really a film.' She was cheerleading from the outside and that was lifting my spirits inside." The treatment program where he began writing "Honey Boy" came after a 2017 arrest for public drunkenness in which he reportedly ranted at police officers. When he accepted a plea deal, he apologized for what he'd said, telling the court: "I have been struggling with addiction publicly for far too long, and I am actively taking steps toward securing my sobriety and hope I can be forgiven for my mistakes." "Honey Boo" hits theaters Nov. 8.
