Finneas Defends Himself & Billie Eilish Against Claims of Nepotism & Privilege

Finneas Defends Himself & Billie Eilish Against Claims of Nepotism & Privilege

Finneas O’Connell, the older brother of Billie Eilish, who has produced her music and won a collective 10 Grammys together, wrote a message on Twitter that sparked a debate about nepotism and privilege.

Over the weekend, Finneas wrote, “A piece of advice to young creatives. “Shooting your shot” is promoted widely and I think honestly, it’s a little overrated. Work super hard alone or with your closest friends. Make sh*t so good it speaks for itself. Don’t pester people to work with you, let them come to you.”

Some of the replies to that tweet include, “Spoken like someone born to two actors in LA. Here’s my piece of advice: check your privilege. Some of us have full time jobs, and are desperate to escape those conditions. My dad was a mechanic. I can’t even afford his funeral. I have $700 in my bank. So yeah, I’ll shoot my shot,” and “Easy to say when your sister IS Billie & your family supported your career. Not everyone has the luxury & (white) privilege to be so lucky.”

Hillary Clinton Reacts To Harvey Weinstein's Guilty Verdict: 'It Was Time for An Accounting'

Hillary Clinton Reacts To Harvey Weinstein's Guilty Verdict: 'It Was Time for An Accounting'

Hillary Clinton is sharing her thoughts on Harvey Weinstein‘s guilty verdict.

“The jury’s verdict [in the Weinstein trial] really speaks for itself,” the former US Secretary of State and First Lady expressed (via Variety) while attending the photo call and press conference for her docu-series Hillary held during the 2020 Berlin International Film Festival at Grand Hyatt Hotel on Tuesday (February 25).

Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of committing a criminal sexual act and third-degree rape. The charges and verdict come almost two years after the former producer was accused of sexual harassment, assault or rape.

“It is obviously something that people have looked at and followed, because it was time for an accounting and the jury clearly found that,” Hillary said at the Berlin Film Festival.

When asked if the Weinstein verdict will cause politicians to think more carefully about the donations they accept from senior figures in the entertainment industry, Hillary said she doesn’t think it will “chill” the donations process.

“He contributed to every Democrat’s campaign — he contributed to Barack Obama’s campaign, John Kerry’s campaign, Al Gore’s campaign, everyone’s campaign,” she said. “I don’t know whether that should chill anyone else from contributing to political campaigns but it should certainly end the kind of behavior for which he was convicted for.”

'Love Is Blind' Had So Many Engaged Couples, Some Were Sent Home & Cut From the Show

'Love Is Blind' Had So Many Engaged Couples, Some Were Sent Home & Cut From the Show

Love Is Blind had so many engaged couples at the end of the experiment, producers were unprepared to continue following all of their journeys!

On the new Netflix dating series, 15 men and 15 women sat in pods and talked to a stream of potential love interests without ever seeing each other. As connections grew, the singles would spend more and more time with the people they were forming relationships with and they had to get engaged if they wanted to see each other in person.

The Netflix show only reveals that five couples got engaged, but there were actually eight couples that got engaged by the end of the experiment. Those five couples were sent to Mexico for a week to grow their physical connection and then the show put them up in apartments until their wedding dates arrived.

Rory Newbrough is one of the contestants who got engaged, but was ultimately cut from the show.

“They were like, ‘We were expecting one or two [engagements], not eight! We set up to film five!’” Rory told Women’s Health. “It was this weird whiplash moment, like ‘What!?’ They just kind of gave us our phones back and said ‘Good luck, thanks for joining us, but we just can’t cover your story.’”

Rory got engaged to Danielle Drouin on the show and while they took their own post-show vacation to Miami, they “didn’t last that long.”

“The connection, at least on my side, was very pure and very real. I think it just wasn’t as real for her once she thought more through it,” he said. He’d still be open to going on the show again!

“As challenging as it was, if you asked me ‘Would you do it again?’ I’d say yes in a heartbeat,” Rory said!

Gwyneth Paltrow's Says Her Vagina Candles Are Back In Stock: 'We Have More In Now'!

Gwyneth Paltrow's Says Her Vagina Candles Are Back In Stock: 'We Have More In Now'!

Gwyneth Paltrow has great news for fans of her vagina candles!

While making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night (February 24), the goop entrepreneur got into an in-depth conversation about her “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle, which first appeared on Goop earlier this year and quickly sold out.

“We have more in now,” Gwyneth confirmed. “I smelled something and I said this as a joke [pointing to the candle's name]… but next thing I know it’s on my website.”

Jimmy then lit the candle and, taking a smell of it, said: “It smells nice. It smells kind of a little masculine. Kind of woody. Was there any testing?”

“It’s not really supposed to smell like a vagina,” Gwyneth said. “This is false advertising then,” Kimmel quipped.

Gwyneth also talked about Elton John being a big fan of the candles, what her kids think of her career, being in a high school acapella group with Kerry Washington, and exploring things like women’s pleasure on her new Netflix show The Goop Lab.

Cleveland Browns Quarterback Baker Mayfield Faces Cheating Allegations After Fan Comes Forward

Cleveland Browns Quarterback Baker Mayfield Faces Cheating Allegations After Fan Comes Forward

Allegations have surfaced against the starting quarterback of the Cleveland Browns, Baker Mayfield, suggesting he cheated on his wife one month after their wedding.

Ohio native Kacie Dingess went on the Rover’s Morning Glory to tell her story, saying she first DM’d Baker, 24, over the summer.

He then apparently added her on Snapchat. “I obviously I didn’t believe it ‘cause it was, like, a weird username. It wasn’t just Baker Mayfield,” Kacie said. “I just kept asking for proof. I was like, ‘Show me that it’s actually you.’ … He was really sure to be like, ‘OK, you have to send me a video of your whole entire house and show me that you’re not with anyone.’”

He then apparently sent her a selfie to prove it was really him.

“He kept texting me, saying like, ‘Send me pictures’ and blah, blah, blah,” she continued. “We were texting for a while, and then he was like, ‘OK, come see me.’ So I got in my car and I drove all the way to Westlake, and it was like behind Cheesecake Factory in some weird development parking lot. And so he texted me when I was on my way there and he was like, ‘You have to leave your phone in the car.’”

He met her at the Cheesecake Factory in an SUV with tinted windows, and after making small talk, she claims she performed oral sex on him.

“[When] I left, I was like, ‘Good doing business with you’ — like, joking around,. And he was like, ‘Don’t say that!’ And I was like, ‘I’m just kidding.’ And then I lost my Juul in his car and we had to look for that for a few minutes. He was like, ‘OK, well, drive safe,’ and I was like, ‘OK, see ya,’” she continued.

During the interview, she showed sensitive photos that Baker had sent to her, and also claimed she decided to come forward when he blocked her on Twitter.

Baker married his wife in July of 2019, and this alleged incident took place in August of 2019.
