Madame Clairevoyant: Horoscopes for the Week of January 24
On Monday morning, Mars enters Capricorn. Mars is the planet of action, of drive and lust, but it’s also the planet of anger, and its time in level-headed Capricorn offers you a chance to take your anger seriously. It’s not irrational to resent the people who have treated you poorly, or to rage against injustices you’re expected to live with. Right now, this fury won’t devour you — in fact, it can serve as a steady source of fuel. Then on Tuesday night, Mercury (which is still retrograde) joins Mars and Venus in Capricorn. Your thought processes become more reasonable and realistic, though that doesn’t mean they must be joyless. Finally, in the early hours of Saturday, Venus retrograde ends. During the last six weeks of this retrograde, you’ve likely learned something important about the kinds of relationships you really need. Now, let that knowledge inform your next steps.

The Art Teacher Quarantining With a Fling Who Gave Her COVID
New York’s Sex Diaries series asks anonymous city dwellers to record a week in their sex lives — with comic, tragic, often sexy, and always revealing results. This week a woman socializes with various crushes before going into isolation: 41, single, Brooklyn.DAY ONE10 a.m. I’m an art teacher at a private school. Today I have to teach a couple individual lessons and a class for high-schoolers.3 p.m. My job takes a lot of energy and patience but I love what I do. That being said … ticktock.4 p.m. I’m especially glad the workday is over because I’m heading to a wine tasting with a friend at my favorite museum. I never mind going to exhibits alone but chatting with M is a nice change of pace. He is easygoing, intelligent, and insightful. We used to work together, and started hanging out about a year ago. He is also about ten years younger than me, so I don’t want to get involved with him, despite our flickers of chemistry.

Bella Hadid Says She’s Not Drinking Alcohol Anymore
Next time someone judges you for not drinking at a party, tell them this: you’re just following in the footsteps of vaccinated supermodel Bella Hadid, who apparently hasn’t had a drop of alcohol in the past six months.The model opened up about her new sobriety during a recent interview with InStyle. “I have done my fair share of drinking,” she said. “I loved alcohol and it got to the point where I even started to, you know, cancel nights out that I felt like I wouldn’t be able to control myself.” This isn’t the first time that Hadid has spoken about the negative effects of drinking socially. In an Instagram post in September, she opened up about how growing social anxiety made drinking a fixture of her social life. “It got harder for me to go out without having one drink to calm my nerves, which made me not want to go out at all,” she wrote in a post announcing her partnership with Kin Spritz, a brand of non-alcoholic beverages that essentially claim to be supplements in a can.

Ana de Armas Was Edited Out of Yesterday, So Fans Are Suing
The entire premise of Yesterday is that the Beatles have been erased from existence. But for some viewers, the 2019 movie went too far when it also cut Ana de Armas out of the world. Variety reports that two fans have filed a federal class-action lawsuit against Universal Pictures, claiming that they were tricked because the Knives Out actress appeared in the trailer for the movie, which she was edited out of completely. The lawsuit alleges that the marketing for Yesterday was “false, misleading, and deceptive,” and accuses Universal of using de Armas’s “fame, radiance, and brilliance to promote the film.”Renowned stan account Ana de Armas Updates was quick to weigh in on the news of the lawsuit, tweeting, “at least I’m not to blame this time.” So who is? There are actually two plaintiffs: 38-year-old Conor Woulfe from Maryland and 44-year-old Peter Michael Rosza from California. They both paid $3.99 to watch Yesterday on Amazon Prime, but the lawsuit is seeking at least $5 million because it’s being filed on behalf of everyone who was affected.

New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern Cancels Her Wedding Due to Omicron
New Zealand, land of hobbits, kiwi birds, and actual responsible government officials. As Omicron continues to spread throughout the country, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern canceled her own wedding, prompting me to desperately want to move there.Throughout the pandemic, Ardern has had zero tolerance for COVID-19, imposing strict restrictions, including quarantine mandates and limited travel into the country, even for citizens. She’s so committed to COVID-19 safety, she smiled through an earthquake on live television to continue speaking about the virus back in May of 2020. So it’s not surprising that, after New Zealand recorded its first Omicron cluster, she canceled her nuptials altogether. (Arden also implemented new restrictions, including limiting gatherings of vaccinated people to 100, and mandating the use of masks in public transportation and shops.)

Ye and Julia Fox Are Going Full Britney and Justin
Things are getting serious, or serious in celebrity world anyways. Julia Fox and Ye (a.k.a. Kanye West) made their red-carpet debut as a couple over the weekend, and not since the 2001 American Music Awards has a couple looked so … matching. Ye and Fox appeared at the Kenzo fashion show on Sunday, January 23 — likely the first of many stops during Paris Fashion Week — wearing matching full denim outfits.It’s like they woke up Sunday morning and thought, what iconic couple do we want to emulate? Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake, obvi. Of course, Ye and Fox’s actual Canadian tuxedos were far from Brit’s patchwork-denim gown and Justin’s ill-fitting light-wash suit. Instead, Ye and Fox went for a more tailored look, with Ye wearing simple jeans and a jean jacket and Fox rocking a Madonna cone bra-inspired cropped jean jacket. (Perhaps to remind us of the rumors that she’s in talks to play Debi Mazar in an upcoming Madonna biopic.) And both finished off their outfits with black leather gloves covering what I can only assume were very sweaty hands.

The Invention of André Leon Talley
When the news broke that André Leon Talley, who had towered over fashion for decades, had died suddenly at 73, it was the singularity of his life, his talent, and his personality that was evoked over and over again, often mixed with a sense of regret that his life’s work — a celebration of beauty, taste, and style nearly as devout as his religious faith — had ultimately let him down. But it’s important to remember that he was one of fashion’s most ardent and particular believers. On Wednesday, Alex Bolen, the CEO of Oscar de la Renta, got a text from his kids studying overseas: “Hey, remember the shirts?” He didn’t, not immediately. Years earlier, Talley had come to a lunch at the de la Rentas’ for the 5th birthday of Bolen’s son Henry with a gift for the boy: monogrammed shirts from Charvet, the 19th-century shirtmakers on the Place Vendôme, home to the Paris couture houses and the Ritz. “We had to forbid him from wearing them to school,” Bolen said “To this day, Henry is is like, ‘When are we going to that Charvet place?’”

Demi Lovato Holds a Funeral for Their Pop Music
Say goodbye to the old Demi Lovato. On Thursday night, the "Sorry Not Sorry" singer posted a photo of studio session where a group of people, including manager Scooter Braun, can be seen dressed in all black while Lovato flips the bird at the camera. "A funeral for my pop music," they wrote in the caption, before also tagging their label, Island Records and later teasing their new punk rock sound in an Instagram Story. "Yeah you're pushing me to the edge. Prod me, lie to me, ungodly things have been sent," Lovato can be heard singing over a grungy guitar line. "Here are your tickets to the freak show baby, sci-fi, watch the freak go crazy."Granted, this sonic switch-up isn't completely unexpected given the star has a deep love of rock music, attending several Emo Nites and more recently debuting an edgy, punk-inspired look that includes an industry piercing and a spider tattoo on the side of their head.

Kanye West Wants to Approve the 'Jeen-Yuhs' Documentary
Kanye West wants to approve a three-part documentary about his life and career. Ahead of the documentary's premiere at Sundance this Sunday, Ye asked to be sent the final cut of Jeen-Yuhs, which is slated to debut in theaters nationwide on February 10 and Netflix on February 16, before the other installments are released over the following two weeks."I’m going to say this kindly for the last time,” Ye said in an Instagram post uploaded Friday. “I must get final edit and approval on this doc before it releases on Netflix.”He added, “Open the edit room immediately so I can be in charge of my own image. Thank you in advance.”Featuring never-before-seen footage from 21 years of the rapper's life, the documentary chronicles the rapper's rise to superstardom, triumphs and controversies, including his short-lived 2020 presidential campaign. However, Ye's latest request comes after directors Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah told Variety about previously telling the star that he had to "trust them," which Coodie said Ye did "100 percent."

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Are Parents!
Congrats are in order for Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra, who announced today that they became parents for the first time. The couple, who wed in 2018, shared a joint announcement on Instagram with the happy news. Both Chopra and Jonas posted identical notes that read, “We are overjoyed to confirm that we have welcomed a baby via surrogate. We respectfully ask for privacy during this special time as we focus on our family.” They also thanked fans in advance for giving them the space they’ve requested.This huge announcement comes just weeks after the couple sparked split rumors when the actress dropped “Jonas” from her name on Instagram. Some fans believed it was a sign of trouble in paradise back in November, but Priyanka attempted to tamp down the rumors by openly flirting with her husband on social media days later, Vanity Fair recalls. When asked about the blip of drama, Chopra said, “It’s just a professional hazard... Because of the noise of social media, because of the prevalence that it has in our lives, I think it seems a lot larger than it is. I think that we give it a lot more credence in real life, and I don’t think it needs that.”

Pete Davidson and Colin Jost Bought a Staten Island Ferry
Pete Davidson and Colin Jost are now the proud owners of a decommissioned Staten Island Ferry. The native New Yorkers — who both hail from Staten Island — purchased the boat with Manhattan real estate broker and comedy club owner Paul Italia, according to the New York Post. The boat, named the John F. Kennedy, was pulled from the fleet due to mechanical issues, and auctioned by the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services this month.And if you’re wondering what these three plan to do with a massive passenger boat that they paid $280,100 for, don’t worry, they’ve already kinda... sorta... mostly figured it out. “The idea is to turn the space into a live entertainment event space, with comedy, music, art, et cetera,” Italia told The Post. “We’re in the early stages, but everybody involved had the same ambition — not to see this thing go to the scrapyard.”

André Leon Talley Turned His Dreams Into Fashion Fantasies
The thought of narrowing down André Leon Talley’s contributions to fashion feels challenging and overwhelming. Talley, a Black boy from Durham, North Carolina, came to New York and made his career in the 1970s. Over his 48 years in fashion — writing and editing for publications including Interview, the New York Times, Women’s Wear Daily, and Vogue — he pushed the boundaries on being Black in fashion with photoshoots like “Scarlett ’n the Hood,” which was published in the May 1996 issue of Vanity Fair, featuring Naomi Campbell as Scarlett O’Hara and Manolo Blahnik as her gardener. But it was his ostentatious personal style, in particular his wearing of capes and caftans, that redefined Black masculinity in fashion.

Amelia Moore Throws a Pity Party on 'Vinegar'
Amelia Moore has the most powerful chorus of 2022, thus far. In her new single, "vinegar," out today, the 21-year-old Georgia native slowly builds throughout its verses, singing about the "bombs that bleed inside" of her and the "heavy crown" that weighs her down. When we arrive at Moore's hook though, the expected explosion of power-pop production gets replaced with an entirely acapella performance: "Vinegar, pour it in my body," Moore sings, her delicate, digitized falsetto fluttering in total silence. "Where it hurts, like a pity party." As the follow-up single to last year's "sweet and sour," Moore's latest sees her join forces yet again with longtime collaborator Pink Slip — and their partnership is proving to be successful. "vinegar" is moving and effective, telling the personal story of heartache through sonics, not just lyrics. The height of the song pulls back almost everything, like a stomach dropping after receiving that text from an ex. Moore explains, “The creation of this song jump started my healing process and I hope it has the same effect on everyone who hears it."

Jamie Lynn Spears’s Book Is a Sad, Unsettling Read
Jamie Lynn Spears has said her new memoir, Things I Should Have Said, is not about her sister. Yet it’s hard to ignore the timing: The tell-all arrived on shelves this week on the heels of Britney’s extremely publicized conservatorship battle. Ever since Britney’s explosive testimony about her 13-year conservatorship — where she revealed just how little control she had over her life or finances — the Spears family has been in the spotlight, with Britney going as far as to say that they should “all be in jail” for what they did to her.The timing did not go unnoticed by Britney. After Jamie Lynn promoted the book on Good Morning America last week, Britney accused her of using the conservatorship battle to sell books, ultimately sending her a cease-and-desist order citing “misleading” and “derogatory” comments. For her part, Jamie Lynn has said she wrote the memoir to “honor her voice” and speak to the “pain” she’s felt “because that matters.” And the book makes clear that she has faced pain. In Jamie Lynn’s account, her father’s alcoholism loomed large over their family life, while she and her mother, Lynn, used to lash out at each other regularly, with things getting bad enough that she says she considered child emancipation. She claims that Jamie and Lynn loved the attention that came with having famous children and that the “power struggle” between the two parents intensified as their daughters became more and more successful. “We were a tight-knit family torn apart by money, distorted truths, and undisclosed personal issues,” she writes.

A Woman Says She Was Groped While Napping on a Plane
On Wednesday, a Virginia man was charged with sexual assault after a woman sitting next to him on a plane allegedly woke up to him touching her breast.Ivan Lopez Jr., a 26-year-old man from Alexandria, has been accused of groping the woman on a United Airlines flight on December 24. Per court documents, the woman fell asleep on a flight from Las Vegas to Washington, D.C., and woke up to Lopez “repeatedly rubbing her right breast.” She told FBI agents that the move was “not accidental” and that it lasted for about ten seconds.Prosecutors told the Miami Herald that the woman yelled “Get away from me,” at which point Lopez moved to the back of the plane and admitted to a flight attendant that he had sexually assaulted a passenger. The flight attendant told the FBI that he said he “thought he was in trouble and that he was sorry.” He was moved further back in the plane to keep him away from the woman, and he allegedly apologized again and said he had a disability.

Sorry, But I Tried the Bologna Face Mask
The first step in reviewing a bologna face mask is accepting that it’s going to be bad for everyone. Earlier this week, Oscar Mayer released a limited-edition sheet mask made to look like a slice of bologna. This prompted many questions like “What?” and “Why?” and “Does it smell like bologna?” and also “What?” It sold out in less than 24 hours. Fortunately, Oscar Mayer kindly sent me one to test out. (Meat influencer status!) While I cannot promise you any answers, I can give you a bit of insight into what wearing something that looks like meat does to your psyche.To address what I’m sure are your first two questions: No, the face mask is not actually made of bologna nor does it smell like bologna. The sheet mask, which was priced at $5, was made in partnership with Seoul Mamas, a Korean skin-care company. Like other hydrogel face masks, it promises to be hydrating and to promote skin elasticity, and it’s made with things like witch hazel and seaweed-derived ingredients. Unlike other face masks, it looks like a piece of bologna.
