Kylie Jenner talks body insecurities, shows off filler-free lips
Now that she's unveiled her lip filler-free pout, Kylie Jenner's doing what any marketing savvy cosmetics guru would do and using her new look to promote her company. On Monday, July 9, Kylie and her newly slimmed-down lips enjoyed a night on the town in Los Angeles in celebration of the season finale for "The Handmaid's Tale." As she headed the door for what she later raved was "by far one of the best nights of my life," according to People, she Snapchatted about the caramel lip liner and nova matte lipstick products she was using to prep her pucker. Though the new mom looked amazing in the black halter minidress she chose for the occasion — not to mention, in the post-baby body shot she shared on social media one month after the birth of her daughter, Stormi — Kylie recently admitted she's been plagued with body-related insecurities since she gave birth. "I feel like people think that I bounced back super fast — which I guess I did, and that everything's so perfect and people will get the wrong idea on Instagram sometimes," she said in a YouTube Q&A published over the weekend (via Life&Style). "Especially at such a young age, to see your body go through such a change — and it is physically, mentally, emotionally a challenge. It's also a beautiful thing — and it was such a great pregnancy and birth and I'm so happy and I would've done the same thing over again. But like, you know, my boobs are definitely three times the size which bothers me, I have stretch marks on my boobs, my stomach isn't the same, my waist isn't the same, my butt's bigger, my thighs are bigger. I really want to gain my core back, I feel like I have fake abs right now, it's just like genetics, but I want real abs," she continued. "I know I can have a super fit body — and just for my health," Kylie added. "I want to do this and I want to feel good."

Chrissy Teigen slams stranger for allegedly taking photos of her pumping breast milk in her car
Chrissy Teigen has long maintained an open-minded attitude when it comes to her body, which, as a swimsuit model and a mom, she's often shown to the public on social media. That perspective is not an invitation for random strangers to violate her privacy, though. In the wee hours of Tuesday, July 10, she made that quite clear on Twitter when she slammed an apparent paparazzo for taking pictures of her dealing with the day-to-day breastfeeding needs of her infant son, Miles. In a series of since deleted tweets captured via screenshot by ET, Chrissy posted: "Also to the man who took photos into our car as I was topless and pumping you can go f— yourself if you sell them. If I wanted to show you my salami nipples I'd show you my salami nipples on my own doing!" Over the course of a few hours before she took the post and its thread down, fans chimed in to support her. "You shared a lovely bf photo the other day. Share one for the pumping moms! Wind outta that fools sails," wrote one follower. "Oh I am definitely happy to [sic]! It's most of my day. Just so creepy to be sitting in a car, dark out, and see flashes and a dude," Chrissy replied. When a detractor with the handle Jerry McGwire suggested she should "get tinted windows" if she wanted to pump "out in plain view of the public," Chrissy clapped back. "Yes jerry. Die on this hill," she tweeted. "This is what you should stand up for. A man's right to shoot his camera into my (tinted) car. This is a great cause."
The 'fab four' reunite to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force
Another royal event — another chance for Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, to prove her mettle as a royal fashion plate. On Tuesday, July, 10, Meghan joined Prince Harry, along with Prince William and Duchess Kate, at Westminster Abbey for an event marking the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force in London. Us Weekly reports her look for the formal affair included a crisp yet stunning black bespoke dress from Dior, topped off with a black netted fascinator by Stephen Jones. Her sister-in-law opted for a more summery look, courtesy of Alexander McQueen, and a Sean Barrett hat. But more eyes were likely on Meghan, who seemed to gracefully find moments where she and her military garb-outfitted husband, Harry, could whisper quietly and exchange sweet glances with one another, according to photos taken over the course of the day. The so-called "royal fab four" were joined by Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla for the festivities, which featured a parade and grand air display. Meghan and Harry are due to visit Dublin together later this week.

Stratford, Ontario mayor wants Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin to marry in Justin's hometown
The mayor of Stratford, Ontario, is already vying to get its native son, Justin Bieber, to bring his wedding to the Great White North. In the wake of the singer's engagement news this week, Stratford mayor Dan Mathieson reportedly told TMZ he's prepared to offer the Biebs and his fiancee, Hailey Baldwin, free tickets to a Stratford Warriors hockey game if they stage a winter wedding in the Biebs' hometown. Should Justin and Hailey agree to marry in Stratford in the summer, the mayor has apparently offered to sweeten the deal by giving Justin a gig at the town's annual Stratford Summer Music Festival (which, um, we're pretty sure he could get without the mayor's help). Finally, the mayor says he'd guarantee all wedding guests discounts on access to the "Steps to Stardom" Justin Bieber exhibit at the Stratford Perth Museum. Hailey and Justin's friends and family — a list that ranges from Kendall Jenner to Usher to Ireland Baldwin — can probably afford full price, but it's the thought that counts, right?
Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have a framed photo of themselves on 'SNL' in their lavish NYC condo
The love fest that is Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's relationship has clearly made its way into the couple's home decor. The two are currently nesting in their new, $16 million condo in New York City's posh Chelsea neighborhood, and on Monday, July 9, Ariana gave her social media pals a glimpse inside the pad — and at what we're guessing is just one of multiple framed photos of the happy couple. In a rainy-day Instagram Story post looking out at the five bedroom home's spectacular Manhattan views, the singer showed off a pic taken on the set of "Saturday Night Live" when she was the musical guest (via Us Weekly). It's a moment fans on Twitter have suggested could have been one of the first times the two met. Heart-eyed Emoji or eye-roll Emoji? Your choice …
Reconciliation rumors hit Blac Chyna and her ex, YBN Almighty Jay
On again? Fans seem to think Blac Chyna and her 18-year-old ex, YBN Almighty Jay have reunited after spotting a pair of loved-up posts on Instagram this week. First, a post appeared on Chyna's account (via the Daily Mail) that showed the teenaged rapper performing shirtless onstage. "F—, I'm in LOVE! Thank you @ybnalmightyjay," Chyna captioned the shot before deleting it. YBN soon followed suit, sharing a photo of Chyna he captioned, "I Love The Air That You Breathe❤️🔒." That post remained live as of Tuesday, July 10. Chyna's followers urged her to stay away from her ex, sharing comments like, "please stop with this mess. �� Your fans wanna see you do better. We are rooting for you." YBN announced he and Chyna had split on June 19. Rumors linking Chyna to another teenager, boxer Devin Haney, surfaced a few weeks later.
Cardi B's ex-manager accuses rapper of trying to 'defame and injure' him with countersuit
The legal battle brewing between Cardi B and her former manager, Klenord Raphael, who goes by Shaft, is quickly becoming a he said-she said situation. The conflict began in April, when Shaft filed a $10 million lawsuit against his ex-client, accusing her of "breach of contract, unjust enrichment, quantum meruit, declaratory judgment and defamation," according to Variety. In other words, he thinks she ditched him once her career took off and believes he's owed something for the work he did to help make her so successful. Cardi filed a countersuit against Shaft last week that the New York Post summed up as having accused Shaft of driving a wedge between her and her friends and advisers so he could sign "grossly unfair" and self-serving contracts on her behalf. Now, Shaft is firing back again, this time through a statement to the Post about the countersuit. "The facts are simple — Cardi B's music, image and rise to superstardom were all developed and executed by Shaft and his team of writers and producers. The outright lies and distortions in her claims make you shake your head," Shaft told the tab through a rep. The spokesperson added that the countersuits represents a "campaign by Cardi B and her team to defame and injure Shaft, the one person who saw promise in her, invested time and resources in her and succeeded in making her rich and famous." The rapper's rep declined to respond.
Diddy talks racial politics in music: Where are the black CEOs?
As the world's richest musician for multiple years in a row, Sean "Diddy" Combs is clearly doing something right in his pursuits. That's especially true given the odds that are still stacked against him and other African-American music execs — a problem he wrestles with in Variety's newest cover story. "For all the billions of dollars that these black executives have been able to make them, [there's still hesitation] to put them in the top-level positions," says the Bad Boy Records founder. "They'll go and they'll recruit cats from overseas. It makes sense to give [executives of color] a chance and embrace the evolution, instead of it being that we can only make it to president, senior VP…there's no black CEO of a major record company. That's just as bad as the fact that there are no [black] majority owners in the NFL. That's what really motivates me." Asked how the #MeToo movement factors into his current considerations about the socio-political landscape, Diddy agrees it's unfair for those in power to prey on those who have less status or clout. He also wishes he saw the kind of passion aimed at creating gender equity get channeled into issues around race. "There are a bunch of injustices going on," Diddy explains, "and the same fire and vigor that people have about the #MeToo movement, I think it's time that they have that about the way black America has been treated too."
Gene Simmons settles sexual misconduct suit
Kiss bassist Gene Simmons has settled a lawsuit filed against him by an on-air radio personality who claimed the star made unwanted sexual advances towards her, grabbed her rear and hit her in the throat after she repeatedly declined to engage what she believed were sexual innuendos during an interview spot last fall, according to E! News. "For the record, I did not assault the person making these accusations in the manner alleged in the complaint or harm her in any way," Gene posted on Facebook after news of the lawsuit emerged. The terms of the settlement for the sexual battery, gender violence and assault case were kept private, as was the name of the plaintiff.
Tori Spelling slams Four Seasons over alleged arcade room injury
Tori Spelling is furious with the Four Seasons after her youngest child, Beau, was allegedly hurt by exposed nails she says he encountered during a stay at one of the chain's hotels. In an Instagram Story, she wrote that she and her family of six, apparently longtime customers of the company, have been residing at a Four Seasons "because of a house situation." "But in the kids arcade room my 15 month old got stabbed by 4 exposed nails that shouldn't have been there and all that was done was "Is he ok?'" she posted this week, according to the Daily Mail. "An Obligatory check in and not till they realized who's child it happened too," she added. "So wrong on many levels. And I never call anything out! Not my style. But, not cool @fourseasons! Does he need a tetanus shot?" As of Tuesday, July 11, the hotel had not publicly responded to her complaint.
