Cardi B has finally covered up the name of an ex-boyfriend with a huge butterfly tattoo.

The Bodak Yellow hitmaker took to social media to reveal that up until last month, she still had the name of former lover Samuel inked in red letters on the back of her neck.

Cardi shared a before-and-after shot on Twitter, showing off her new multicoloured butterfly tattoo that now partially covers the name of her ex.

“I never showed ya my cover tatt. What ya think?” she wrote.

While the I Like It rapper hasn’t confirmed who Samuel is, many of her 12.7 million followers speculated that he was a former flame.

During a previous appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Cardi revealed that she has tattoos of her boyfriends on her body, but needed to get rid of them after marrying rapper Offset in 2017.

“I have like three different men tatted on me, you know what I’m saying? They gotta go!” she laughed.

Her new butterfly cover-up also matches the recent work she’s had done to refresh her other tattoos, including the ink on her back, and the peacock on her thigh.

The design on her back “took several months” to finish, and extends from “the top of my back to the middle of my thigh,”, and was completed at her home during the Covid-19 lockdown by Californian-based artist Jamie Schene.

“It was an awesome project and a crazy experience. Thanks for the dedication, strength, and hospitality,” he said in a post about the ink session on Instagram.

Paris Hilton announced the release of new merchandise that will fundraise for an LGBTQ charity.

The 39-year-old revealed across her social media accounts that proceeds from sales of her new Boss Babe tank top, available in pink, black or white, will directly support the LGBTQ Freedom Fund.

“Rocking my new #BossBabe Summer #ParisHiltonMerch Collection.The proceeds from my “Boss Babe” tank go directly to the @LGBTQ_Freedom,” Paris wrote on Twitter and Instagram, alongside a black-and-white edited image of wearing her merchandise next to Marilyn Monroe. “Go to ParisHiltonMerch.com to shop now.”

And in the item’s description on her website, Paris details more of the organisation’s work, and why she was inspired to help them amid the ongoing protest around the world to improve racial equality.

“The LGBTQ Freedom Fund is a black-led organization focusing on posting bail to secure the safety of LGBTQ folks, who are 3 times more likely to be incarcerated than straight individuals,” the description on her website read.

“Because of whom they love, a tangle of discrimination and poverty disproportionately puts LGBTQ people behind bars and the impact is felt most acutely by transgender, brown & black individuals.”

The LGBTQ Freedom Fund is also supporting Black Lives Matter protesters with bail money in Florida.

Paris’ Boss Babe tank top is available from her website parishiltonmerch.com, and priced at $25 (£20).

John Boyega and Joe Cornish considering Attack the Block sequel

John Boyega has met with Attack the Block director Joe Cornish to discuss making a sequel to the sci-fi horror flick.

The 2011 movie, which follows a group of South London teenagers who fight off an alien invasion, was a hit with critics and audiences, and just four years later, Boyega was catapulted to worldwide fame when he starred in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

During an interview with the Script Apart podcast, Cornish revealed that he met with the 28-year-old star to talk about him reprising his role as teenager Moses.

“We’ve got ideas,” The Kid Who Would Be King filmmaker said. “I met with John a couple of months ago to talk about it. We’ve always had ideas after the first one. But obviously we’ve both been busy doing different things.”

He also hinted that a sequel would also take into account how much the world has changed in the nine years since Attack The Block hit cinema screens.

“In a way, the longer you leave it, the more interesting it is,” Cornish cryptically shared. “So that’s all I’ll say.”

Boyega took to Twitter to further tease fans with the possibility of an Attack the Block sequel, as he reposted an article that featured Cornish’s interview and the headline: “Joe Cornish reveals he’s met up with John Boyega to talk ideas for an Attack the Block sequel.”

“…think imma need the whole of London for an army on this one……” he quipped, and later told a follower that he “wouldn’t imagine” doing the movie without co-star Alex Esmail.

Vanessa Morgan will only wear clothes made by black designers on the red carpet from now on.

Earlier this week, the Riverdale actress took to Twitter to announce that she will be making changes to the way she dresses in the future, and also called on aspiring fashion creatives to get in touch with her.

“From now on any red carpet or event, I will be wearing and supporting Black designers. Any aspiring Black designers hit me up. I got you. I see you,” the 28-year-old posted.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better role model. This is amazing Vanessa,” one fan replied, while another wrote: “I’m always excited to see your pictures from events but now I’ll be extra excited because I’ll know you’re supporting so many talented black designers.”

Vanessa’s post comes after she opened up about the lack of representation and equality in Hollywood, and confessed she was tired of being cast as “sidekick” character and given barely any screen time, but was used in advertising to champion “diversity”.

“To my black fans, I have now made it my purpose to fight for us,” Vanessa wrote on Twitter. “To the six-year-old me who had no role model that looked like me on TV. This is for you. We aren’t your token black non-dimensional characters. This is being black in Hollywood. I will fight for YOU.

“And I will no longer take roles that don’t properly represent us. PERIOD,” she fired.

Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa later responded to the star’s allegations in a post on Instagram, and promised to do better.

“We hear Vanessa. We love Vanessa. She’s right. We’re sorry and we make the same promise to you that we did to her. We will do better to honour her and the character she plays. As well as all of our actors and characters of colour,” he commented.

James Cameron has landed back in New Zealand to resume filming his Avatar sequels.

The director, along with producer Jon Landau, arrived in the country to restart production, and the pair will now have to complete a mandatory 14-day government supervised quarantine.

“Made it to New Zealand. Our 14-day government supervised self-isolation now begins,” Landau captioned a photo on Twitter, which features him and Cameron wearing face masks and plastic visors as they departed the plane after the 13-hour flight.

Filming on the back-to-back sequels was halted in March amid the growing coronavirus pandemic, with the cast and crew sent home indefinitely as restrictions were imposed on countries around the world to stop the spread of the virus.

According to Variety, Cameron was able to negotiate his entry into the country – while the borders are still closed to almost all foreign travellers – because he used a border exemption clause for foreigners considered of “significant economic value”.

New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has been praised for her swift response to the virus, with cases of infection barely over 1,000 and just 22 deaths.

Landau told local news website RNZ that he and Cameron were looking forward to going back to work in New Zealand because of the efforts taken to curb the spread of the virus.

“So we feel we’re coming back to the safest place in the world possible thanks to a team of people that we’ve worked with. We believe we have a very thoughtful, detailed and diligent safety plan that will keep everybody as safe as possible in these unprecedented times,” he explained.

Avatar 2 is set for release in December 2021.

Chrissy Teigen getting breast implants removed

Chrissy Teigen is scheduled to go under the knife to get her breast implants removed soon.

The 34-year-old author, TV personality and model decided to share the news of her upcoming surgery after fans asked for more information after she posted a video on Twitter of her getting a coronavirus test.

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, Chrissy explained she couldn’t go ahead with the implant removal if she wasn’t tested for Covid-19, and told her followers that she was relieved to be having her implants taken out.

“So I posted myself getting a covid test on the twitter, as I’m getting surgery soon,” the mother-of-two wrote. “A lot of people are understandably curious (and nosey!) so I’ll just say it here: I’m getting my boobs out!”

Chrissy, who is married to singer/songwriter John Legend, added: “They’ve been great to me for many years but I’m just over it. I’d like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort! No biggie! So don’t worry about me! All good. I’ll still have boobs, they’ll just be pure fat.”

The Lip Sync Battle co-host spoke about her boob job with U.K. Glamour magazine back in March. She revealed that she wanted to them to look “rounder and firmer” when she was a 20-year-old swimsuit model so she got “a quarter ‘teardrop’ cup in the bottom and filled out the breast line.”

In that interview, she admitted she was seriously considered getting them removed but the thought of more surgery was holding her back.

“(When) you have babies… they fill up with milk and deflate and now I am screwed. But I want them out now. If I could do one thing, it would be to have a lift,” she said. “I think you’re supposed to replace (implants) every 10 years. But when you have kids, you think about (the risks) of surgery and I think, ‘This is not the way I want to die, in boob surgery.'”

Director Francis Lee claims Amazon Prime has censored God’s Own Country

Director Francis Lee has slammed Amazon Prime Video for allegedly cutting gay sex scenes from his movie God’s Own Country.

The British filmmaker helmed the critically-acclaimed 2017 romantic drama featuring The Crown star Josh O’Connor and Alec Secareanu as a pair of farm workers in Yorkshire who fall in love.

After fans complained about two sex scenes being cut on the film’s Amazon Prime Video review page, Lee took to Twitter to express his frustration and call on fans to avoid renting or buying that version.

“Dear friends in (the) USA. God’s Own Country appears to have been censored on Prime Video. Until this is investigated please do not rent or buy on Amazon Prime. It is not the film I intended or made. I will report back,” he posted.

“I’m interested if any of you have evidence of @PrimeVideo (Amazon Prime USA) censoring naked women or intimate/sex scenes within heterosexual stories on their streaming service? Or if they just censor queer stories?” Lee added in a now-deleted tweet.

Some viewers had claimed that the version of God’s Own Country available to stream as part of Amazon Prime Video’s subscription service had been cut, while those who had purchased the film got the uncensored version.

Representatives for the streaming service investigated the matter and told Lee that the version of God’s Own Country available to stream on Amazon Prime Video was provided by the film’s distributors, Samuel Goldwyn Films.

Lee then took to Twitter to allege that the U.S. distributor had “butchered the streaming version without consultation”, and thanked Amazon for “being incredibly supportive in rectifying” the matter.

Ellie Goulding hits back at critics of 40-hour fasting regime

Ellie Goulding has responded to critics of her 40-hour fasting regime and insisted she never “starves” herself.

The singer-songwriter recently revealed in an interview with The Mirror that she’s incorporating regular fasts into her lifestyle, alongside her strict diet and fitness regime, under the guidance of medical experts.

“I do it very safely by having a purposefully nutritious food day the day before and after,” Ellie told the outlet. “On the fast day, I drink high-grade electrolytes and a lot of water (plus tea and coffee). Fasting is safe and beneficial unless you are diabetic or have serious health issues.”

However, the Love Me Like You Do hitmaker faced a barrage of criticism on Twitter shortly after the comments were published, and fans began expressing their concern for the slim star.

“Call it ‘fasting’ or ‘reducing’ inflammation’ but this is an eating disorder,” one follower tweeted. “F**k @snapchat and f**k @elliegoulding for showing this just in general but what about for the kids already thinking they need to starve themselves?”

Ellie quickly responded to the post, and insisted that she is healthy and isn’t starving herself.

“? I eat a seriously huge amount and exercise regularly,” she fired. “I’m super healthy, I drink sometimes, eat whatever I want, and then I fast for one day a week. It is not starving myself. As far as people in the spotlight go I consider myself a good role model x.”

The 33-year-old was then slammed by another follower for giving out controversial advice to her younger fans.

“In a world where everyone thrives to be perfect, I myself had anorexia when I was younger and to see this actually makes me feel sick! This is not normal,” they commented.

However, Ellie was adamant that she wasn’t giving out dietary advice, she was simply describing her own regime.

“Was asked about my health and fitness during an interview, and consider fasting for one day (plus the night – when I’m asleep) part of that,” she continued. “I do it safely and am incredibly fit and healthy. I’d say I’m a pretty decent role model x”.

Sarah Paulson is thrilled that people think she looks like Adele.

Earlier this month, fans commented on the uncanny resemblance between the pair when the Oscar-winning musician posted a picture of herself, showcasing her enviable new figure, to celebrate her birthday.

And the American Horror Story star was shocked to find her name trending on Twitter, after thousands remarked on the similarities, with one user commenting: “I’m not saying Adele and Sarah Paulson are the same person but…” followed by pictures of the pair side by side.

Commenting on the comparisons, Paulson told SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio: “I was on Twitter and I just happened to be scrolling through and it said Sarah Paulson is trending… I was like, ‘Wait, what?'”

The 45-year-old then realised it was “the Adele thing again” and noted that it wasn’t the first time she’s been compared to the Hello hitmaker.

“Listen, I’ll take it,” she quipped. “I mean, what I wish they were comparing was my talent to her talent and saying that mine was as great as hers, which quite honestly they can’t say because no one’s talent is as great as hers, which is really irritating… But I’ll take looking like her. Man, she’s a beauty. So, sure. Great. Give it to me. I’ll take it.”

The comparisons first began in December last year, when Adele posted a photo of herself from her Christmas party, and during an Instagram Live Q&A session earlier this month, Paulson was overjoyed to be told she looked like her.

“I think the person who’s the most talented is the person that other person looks like,” the Ocean’s 8 star said. “She doesn’t look like me, if anything, I look like her. She’s Adele, she’s ADELE!”

Kim Kardashian’s line of non-medical face masks sold out just one hour after it was launched over the weekend.

The reality star and KKW Beauty mogul announced her shapewear brand SKIMS would be releasing a collection of reusable face masks, priced at $8 (£6.60) per mask and available in five different neutral shades – soft, sand, clay, sienna, cocoa and onyx – to match a range of skin tones.

The masks, inspired by SKIMS garments, are made from a blend of nylon and spandex, and while they can reduce exposure to bodily fluids they will not eradicate the risk of contracting coronavirus.

And after launching the masks on Saturday, Kim took to social media to announce that they had completely sold out after just one hour.

“Unfortunately our @skims face masks have sold out today but we’re working with our local partner in LA to produce more as quickly as possible,” she wrote on Twitter. “The next batch will be available next week – please sign up to receive more details coming soon, and thank you for your support.”

SKIMS confirmed on its website that a new batch of face masks will be available this week, and customers are being urged to sign up to a waiting list.

In addition, the mother-of-four announced that her shapewear brand would be donating 10,000 of its new face masks to four organisations in the U.S. – Baby2Baby, Good+Foundation, The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and National Domestic Workers Alliance.

Back in March, Kim pledged a $1 million (£826,000) donation to families affected by Covid-19, with funds going towards providing essentials to those in need.
