Orlando Bloom has spelled his son Flynn’s name wrong in his new Morse code tattoo.

The Lord of the Rings actor, who shares the nine-year-old with his ex-wife Miranda Kerr, took to Instagram on Tuesday to unveil his latest piece of body art from tattooist Balazs Bercsenyi.

Fans were initially at a loss as to the meaning of the inking, which featured a series of dots, dashes, and seemingly random numbers on his forearm, but Orlando quickly explained the tattoo was Morse code for Flynn’s name alongside numbers representing the date and time of his birth.

However, some of his followers were quick to point out that the tattoo was incorrect – and actually spells ‘Frynn’ due to a single dot missing from the second letter.

“If the Morse code is supposed to spell out Flynn then there is a mistake,” one wrote, while another added: “It’s a lovely idea and a beautiful tattoo. But if it is indeed Morse code, I think it says ‘Frynn,’ not ‘Flynn’.”

Following the remarks, Bercsenyi took to Instagram to share a picture of himself with the actor, and acknowledged the mistake.

“A beautiful reminder for @orlandobloom of his son,” he captioned the picture. “And yes, a dot is missing, we know, it will be fixed.”

Orlando, 43, isn’t the only star to have been left red-faced by a tattoo misspelling.

Ariana Grande hit headlines when she decided to get a Japanese tattoo on the palm of her hand which was meant to read 7 Rings, to promote her song of the same name, but actually translated to “shichirin” – a Japanese-style barbecue grill.

Elsewhere, Britney Spears had hoped to have the word “mysterious” inked on her hip in Chinese characters, but an error means she actually has “strange” tattooed there instead.

Ariana Grande has joked her earlobes are “still recovering” from the large jewels she wore to the 2020 Grammy Awards.

The 7 Rings hitmaker enjoyed several outfit changes over the course of the music bash last Sunday night, making her entrance in a grey Giambattista Valli ballgown, before swapping into a Schiaparelli creation, and later changing into an emerald green gown from Givenchy for her performance.

On Thursday, celebrity jeweller Lorraine Schwartz took to Instagram to share a close-up image of the huge Colombian emerald and diamond necklace and earring set Ariana wore with her final ensemble. The clip quickly attracted the attention of the star, who wrote in the comments section: “Earlobes still recovering. However, those earrings…. they are sorely and deeply missed. I think of them constantly and wish we didn’t have to part. if they go missing, it was (my dog) Toulouse. love and thank u (sic).”

Earlier in the evening, Ariana also sported another pair of 30-carat diamond studs from Lorraine’s brand along with her first red carpet look.

And as for her many outfit changes at the Grammys, the 26-year-old explained in an interview with CBS that she simply couldn’t choose between all of the beautiful options at her fingertips.

“So, here’s the thing – I did the carpet in a custom Giambattista Valli dress and I loved it, and then I didn’t do the interview, so I came back in a different dress, because I couldn’t decide,” she said, adding that it was “huge progress” for her to even attend due to her anxiety.

“I’m so lucky. I had two, very special custom looks made. And I couldn’t decide! I was indecisive, so I decided to do it twice. Which is really huge progress for me, because usually, I cannot come within three feet of a red carpet without having a nervous breakdown.”

Ariana Grande enjoyed a princess moment during the 2020 Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

The Sweetener hitmaker, who skipped the bash last year after a reported spat with producer Ken Ehrlich, made her long-awaited return to the annual prestigious music event, which was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Ariana stunned on the red carpet in an extravagant strapless grey Giambattista Valli haute couture gown, which featured a huge tiered tulle skirt.

The 26-year-old completed the look with matching gloves, 30-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings, and had her hair scraped back into her signature sky-high ponytail.

Shortly after posing in the Giambattista Valli gown, Ariana then changed into a Schiaparelli creation, which was comprised of an embellished charcoal grey crop top and voluminous light grey skirt.

“So, here’s the thing – I did the carpet in a custom Giambattista Valli dress and I loved it, and then I didn’t do the interview, so I came back in a different dress, because I couldn’t decide,” she told CBS.

Ariana went on to explain that it was a “huge progress” for her being able to even walk the red carpet on Sunday due to her anxiety.

“I’m so lucky. I had two, very special custom looks made. And I couldn’t decide! I was indecisive, so I decided to do it twice. Which is really huge progress for me, because usually, I cannot come within three feet of a red carpet without having a nervous breakdown,” the superstar shared.

Ariana was up for five prizes at the Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year for 7 Rings, but lost out to Billie Eilish for her track Bad Guy.

Donatella Versace was thrilled to dress a number of stars for the 2020 Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

Following the ceremony held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the Italian designer, who oversees the Versace fashion house, took to Instagram to share images of the celebrities her team had outfitted for the annual music bash.

Alongside a snap of Lil Nas X in a hot pink suit and matching cowboy hat, she wrote, “Breathtaking @lilnasx … such a look!! Love it!!” while beside a picture of Lizzo rocking an Old Hollywood-inspired strapless white gown, the fashion star praised: “Such a #RedCarpet dream… Perfection! Lizzo!”

Elsewhere, members of the Versace atelier made the black ballgown sported by Camila Cabello for her red carpet entrance, as well as the lilac dress she wore to perform First Man during the show, and the sexy canary yellow number she slipped into later on.

Other designers to make outfits for multiple artists included Christian Siriano, who dreamed up glamorous looks for the likes of Shania Twain, Best New Artist nominee YOLA, Lizzo, and Demi Lovato.

“Demi, it was an honour to create for you tonight and WOW that was unbelievable! Love you!” he captioned a picture of the singer sporting a white ballgown while performing her new song Anyone.

Other standout looks on the night included the white beaded Ralph & Russo dress donned by Priyanka Chopra, the monogrammed Gucci number sported by multiple Grammy Award winner Billie Eilish, and the Cinderella-esque Giambattista Valli dress rocked by Ariana Grande as she made her red carpet entrance.

Ariana Grande has pleaded with fans to give her a break after receiving criticism for always wearing “the same two outfits” in paparazzi photos.

In recent years, the 7 Rings hitmaker has become known for sporting ensembles comprised of baggy, oversized shirts and thigh-high boots when photographed out and about, with fans on social media recently claiming Ariana has “been wearing the same boots/ long shirt Combo for years”.

After picking up on the scrutiny, she took to her Twitter page to shut down the discussion, writing: “thank god i’m a singer then…”

“gimmeee a break (sic). i don’t like having my photo taken, i escape the paparazzi almost every time,” the 26-year-old continued. “i never post photos that aren’t on stage but s**t i promise i have cute a*s clothes.”

Ariana went on to insist that, while she knows her fans just want “the best” for her, she’s doing all she can to avoid scrutiny in her day-to-day life.

“i’m never even seen like ever i promise i look cute over here in my own world i haven’t even been able to put on a pair of f**kin boots lately because of the traumatic image i have in my head of these uh …. tik tok ‘performers’ (sic),” she added, referring to the short-form social media video platform.

Despite the star’s penchant for more relaxed looks, she previously told U.S. Vogue magazine she uses her stage costumes and trademark high ponytail to convey an “exaggerated version” of herself.

Zendaya had her breasts moulded for the stunning Tom Ford creation she wore to the 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards.

The 23-year-old donned the $15,000 (£11,500) hot pink metallic breastplate from the designer’s spring 2020 collection for the ceremony on Sunday, and finished off the show-stopping look with a fuchsia skirt and her hair styled into waist-length braids.

The look caught the attention of her fans on social media, with one curious follower on Twitter quizzing the Euphoria star on how the bespoke piece was created.

“Did they mould that to your t**tles… asking for a friend,” the cheeky post read, with Zendaya quickly replying, “Yes. Lol.”

Her stylist, Law Roach, later pointed out the breastplate was a homage to the vintage pieces by Issey Miyake and Yves Saint Laurent, and shared a picture of his client rocking the red carpet.

“Warrior Woman… wearing @tomford,” Law captioned the snap, prompting his celebrity friends to heap praise on Zendaya’s look.

“Jesus Christ,” Ariana Grande commented. “Incredible Law.”

Tracee Ellis Ross simply left a series of fire emojis, while singer Jessie J, model Alton Mason, and RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Michelle Visage also showed their love for the unique outfit.

The Tom Ford piece was recently worn by Gwyneth Paltrow for the cover of the latest issue of U.S. Harper’s Bazaar magazine, and the Oscar winner took to social media to gush over her Spider-Man: Homecoming co-star too.

“Thank God I can say I have something in common with Zendaya,” she commented on a picture of the actress wearing the breastplate.

Pete Davidson is undergoing a course of strong medication in order to treat his acne.

The comedian has joined the likes of Lili Reinhart and Iris Law in discussing their struggles with the debilitating skin condition, in which cysts cause painful and red lumps on the face and body.

Now, in an interview with Paper magazine, Davidson has explained how he’s taking Accutane – a medication used to treat severe cystic acne that has not responded to other treatments.

“Well, my skin’s insanely bad because I have Crohn’s, so I have like no immune system,” the 26-year-old explained, referencing the inflammatory bowel disease he was diagnosed with in his teens. “So, I get cystic acne and I have to take extra-special care of my skin so it can still look sh***y. But now I’m on Accutane, so I’ve been told I’m gonna be a little bit of a b**** for the next six months.”

Cystic acne can leave long-lasting scars, and while there is no cure or specific cause, sufferers do need to undergo treatment.

Elsewhere in the interview, the Saturday Night Live funnyman discussed the intense public scrutiny over his appearance, especially during his short-lived relationship with popstar Ariana Grande last year.

“I think it’s very… weird. When enough people call you ugly, it definitely gets to you. For me, personally, I can’t block that stuff out. That’s why I had to get rid of the Internet and stuff,” Davidson shared. “But you definitely have to get to a place where you’re just like, ‘This is how I look. Alright.’ You know?”

Ariana Grande has gone all out for Halloween this year, relying on prosthetics and a team of experts to transform her into a pig-faced character from The Twilight Zone.

The 26-year-old has been teasing fans all week with hints about her costume for the spooky holiday, admitting the TV show was “one of my faves”, and sharing screenshots from the iconic Eye of the Beholder episode.

And on Wednesday, Ariana revealed her final costume, sharing two snaps on Instagram showing the incredible detail that went into creating the look.

In the first, she is seen staring at the camera, with a prosthetic pig nose and downturned mouth covering her own dainty features. Holding a cigarette, the Thank U, Next singer also sports her trademark high ponytail, diamond earrings, and elbow-length gloves.

The next snap is a full-length picture of Ariana, who wears a black dress, opaque tights, and a fur stole for the final look.

“Final procedure was a success,” the star captioned the image.

The Eye of the Beholder episode sees a young woman called Janet Tyler go through a series of surgeries to make her look like everyone else. When her bandages are removed at the end of the episode, viewers see her “normal” pretty face, before the doctors announce the procedure had failed – and come out of the shadows to reveal their own disfigured pig noses and twisted mouths.

Ariana’s look was brought together by her glam team Josh Liu, Daniel Chinchilla, and Julie Hassett, with the latter taking to Instagram to praise prosthetics expert Kevin Haney for creating the facepiece.

“I couldn’t have participated in this without the insane work of @haney7560 who made this prosthetic piece in one day. Like…sculpted, moulded and ran it in ONE DAY. He’s incredible. THANK YOU, KEVIN! And thank you for the referral @thejoshliu! Love ya! Such a team effort! Thanks for having me on board @arianagrande,” Julie wrote.

Forever 21 files for bankruptcy protection

Forever 21 has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, with more than 350 stores set to close worldwide.

Bosses at the California-based brand announced plans to shut down as many as 178 outlets in the U.S. on Sunday, yet, they also insisted the company is still running and assured customers that the stores will remain open.

“This does not mean that we are going out of business – on the contrary, filing for bankruptcy protection is a deliberate and decisive step to put us on a successful track for the future,” they commented. “As part of our filing, we have requested approval to close a number of stores across the U.S… We do, however, expect a significant number of these stores will remain open and operate as usual, and we do not expect to exit any major markets in the U.S.”

Forever 21 will begin to “exit most international locations in Asia and Europe”, but will continue to operate in Mexico and Latin America.

Chapter 11 protection delays a company’s obligations to its creditors, giving it more time to reorganise its debts. After this process, a further 450 to 500 stores will shut down globally, a Forever 21 spokesperson said.

“We are confident this is the right path for the long-term health of our business. Once we complete a reorganisation, Forever 21 will be a stronger, more viable company that is better positioned to prosper for years to come,” the executives added.

Forever 21 was founded in Los Angeles in 1984 by South Korean immigrant Do Won Chang and his wife, with the fast-fashion brand growing to include 815 stores in 57 countries.

But trouble has been brewing for the retailer for months, and back in May, the company liquidated all of its stores in China.

It’s also facing three huge lawsuits, including one from Ariana Grande, who is suing the company for $10 million over alleged copyright and trademark infringement.

Ariana Grande to be ‘seriously considered’ for Wicked movie role

Ariana Grande will be “seriously considered” for a role in the movie adaptation of Broadway classic Wicked.

Last year, the singer performed a cover of The Wizard and I from The Wizard of Oz prequel during NBC’s A Very Wicked Halloween TV special, and later gushed that she felt “grateful to have been a part of something so special”.

In a recent interview with Gay Times magazine, Stephen Schwartz, composer of the Broadway classic, said he was more than impressed with her powerful rendition and she should be considered for the role of either Elphaba or Glinda in the movie.

“Well I’m a massive Ariana Grande fan. Who isn’t?!” he said. “I mean… of course! The short answer is, of course. We’d be fools for her not to be being seriously considered.”

However, he went on to explain that production on the movie adaptation of the hit musical is in the early stages and casting decisions have yet to be made.

“The Wicked movie is not quite far enough along yet for us to really be talking about specific casting, but obviously everyone is very aware of the presence in the world of of Ariana Grande and her extraordinary talent. Ultimately it won’t be my decision, Stephen Daldry is our director and he will have a lot to say about the casting, as will Universal and the studio. But, as I say, let’s just say that all of us are very aware of Ariana Grande,” he teased.

The original Broadway show featured Idina Menzel as Elphaba and Kristin Chenoweth as Glinda and told the story of how the two witches went from best friends to enemies in the chaotic and corrupt city of Oz.

Wicked is slated for release on 22 December 2021.
