Steel Yourself: Another Britney Doc Is Coming
Here it comes, yet another documentary about Britney Spears’s controversial conservatorship, this time from Netflix. On Wednesday, the streaming service dropped a trailer for its contribution to the canon, Britney vs Spears. It premieres on September 28, and you are advised to gird your loins for “years-long investigative work, exclusive interviews and new documents,” per Netflix’s official description. Roll tape:"It's been 13 years and it's enough." Britney vs Spears premieres Sept 28 pic.twitter.com/y2CCV4Jnh7How is this different from the other documentaries plumbing the depths of Britney’s legal misfortune? you are probably wondering. Based on what director Erin Lee Carr told the Los Angeles Times, it sounds like Britney vs Spears will focus more firmly on the pop star’s fight to reclaim her autonomy and the peculiarities of the conservatorship itself rather than, say, provide a “primer for how the media treated Britney.” That’s how Carr described Framing Britney Spears, the docuseries FX and the New York Times put out in February; the BBC also released its Battle for Britney: Fans, Cash and a Conservatorship in early May. As for Britney herself, she’s taken a measurably more prominent role in all of this since June, when she made her first public statement on the arrangement at a court hearing. (“I just want my life back,” she said in an impassioned, 20-plus-minute statement.) But as regards the avalanche of documentaries, Britney has been clear that the sudden race among filmmakers to present “takes” on her life feels “so hypocritical.”

Authorities Hope Gabby Petito Case Helps Find Missing Geologist
Amidst the heightened media attention over the disappearance and subsequent recovery efforts of travel influencer Gabby Petito, people are hoping that the surge in publicity will bring renewed attention to the case of a young geologist that went missing in the Arizona desert two months ago. 24-year old Daniel Robinson was last seen June 23 after leaving his workplace in the suburbs of Phoenix in a Blue Jeep Renegade that was later found overturned in a ravine with the airbags deployed and his wallet, cellphone and keys a few weeks later. A human skull was found near the Jeep weeks later but was later determined to not belong to Robinson.Related | University of Nebraska Shuts Down Frat After Student Protest

Uffie Drops 'cool' Off Toro Y Moi's Label
Uffie defined an entire era of early 2000s music and now the icon is entering a brand new one. After a brief hiatus, despite staying busy co-writing for other artists (like Greyson Chance and VINCINT), Uffie is back with a solo single released through Toro Y Moi's label, Company Records. The track is called "cool" and lives up to its title, with groovy production and a chorus that's as nonchalant as the lyrics. "Cool," she repeats, effortlessly, above a fresh bass line. "Kissing by the pool, life's a disco." For Uffie, the song is "about being co-dependent in an emotionally detached whirlwind of a relationship," as she says, explaining how a fast-paced life of "surface" experiences ultimately left her feeling naïve. "When I paused in the eye of the storm to look around, I realized it was all rooted in toxicity. Sometimes you decide to walk away, others you just say 'cool' and close your eyes."

Uma Thurman Reflects on Having an Abortion As a Teen
Actor Uma Thurman has been following the fallout from the most recent attempt to gut abortion access in Texas, and she is filled with — in her own words — “great sadness, and something akin to horror.” On Tuesday, Thurman published an op-ed in the Washington Post, documenting her own abortion experience “in the hope of drawing the flames of controversy away from the vulnerable women on whom this law will have an immediate effect” and “stand[ing] up in their shoes.”“The abortion I had as a teenager was the hardest decision of my life, one that caused me anguish then and that saddens me even now,” she writes, “but it was the path to the life full of joy and love that I have experienced.” She added: “Choosing not to keep that early pregnancy allowed me to grow up and become the mother I wanted and needed to be.”

Seriously, How Are Parents Doing This?
Real advice from real families going through it. Parenting was never exactly easy — but now, in The After or whatever this still is, it feels like a labyrinth. Like a never-ending quest with twists and turns. Accompanied by a scream into the abyss. The homeschooling, the paranoia-tinged playdates, the fear of what isolation is doing to development. It’s too much. And despite the COVID-19 vaccine rollout this spring, and newly rolled-out office vaccine mandates, the Delta variant continues to be a major threat (particularly for vulnerable communities) as it proves to be more contagious and, in some cases, more deadly. To make difficult matters even worse, there’s so much conflicting information about how the variant is affecting children and what measures parents need to take to protect their kids. Topping all of this off, there’s also the issue that state and school mandates have been inconsistent, leaving many parents to fend for their children’s health by themselves.

I Tried TikTok and Instagram’s Favorite Energy Drink, Celsius
Alongside decorative cell-phone straps and Instagram photo dumps, the latest qualifying signifier of trendiness is, weirdly, an energy drink. Celsius (essentially Red Bull marketed as a form of wellness) has popped up on my TikTok feed, in the check out lines of overly expensive grocery stores, in the hands of my coolest friends, and was even given a glowing review by Zen guy Jonah Hill. It’s everywhere. While I’ve never enjoyed an energy drink in my life, I was intrigued by the brand’s seemingly quick rise in popularity (it has actually been around since 2005) and all of its marketed health benefits, so for one weekend in September, a month that begs you to try new things and refresh your routine, I decided to switch out my daily coffee for one of these cans of fitness culture and caffeine.

Maybe Cops Shouldn’t Handle Domestic Violence Calls
Weeks before Gabby Petito, a #vanlife influencer on a cross-country road trip, was reported missing, and before her remains were discovered in a national forest in Wyoming, the 22-year-old found herself crying uncontrollably in the back of a police car. On August 12, she and her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, had fought in front of a grocery store in Moab, Utah. A concerned bystander called 911 to report a domestic dispute after witnessing Laundrie strike Petito. According to the caller, “the gentleman was slapping the girl.” Another witness said it appeared Laundrie had taken her phone and locked her out of the van. He told police that he saw Petito hitting Laundrie as she fought to get back inside the van — her home at the time.

The 21 Best Work Bags for Women Under $250
The last year and a half working from home has meantthe only accessory we’ve needed has beena little Zoom makeup (if even that), but as we ease our way back into the office (at least, some of us, some of the time, for now), it’s time to scout work bags again. It’s been a while, so here’s a reminder of what makes a good qualifier: It musthave pockets, be big enough for a day’s worth of stuff, andcome in a color that would either go with all of your clothing or clash pleasingly with everything you own. And, of course, it has to be non-hideous. At $100, this turns out to be borderline impossible, but witha $250 budget, we found a lot of nice-looking, practical options, which is great, because while the Cut loves a truly beautiful luxury handbag, we also believe style should be accessible to everyone.

Why Kim Jones of Fendi Looked to an Artist From the ’60s
The Fendi showroom in Milan sprawls over a former industrial building on Via Solari that also includes a runway large enough to accommodate two dozen or so Roman-size columns. The columns are a reminder that the Fendis come from Rome. But when I arrived at Via Solari on Tuesday afternoon — the day before the show and the start of Milan’s spring 2022 collections — it was a quite different sort of family that I encountered in the showroom. At one end, chatting among themselves as models came and went for fittings, were Amanda Harlech, who was Karl Lagerfeld’s longtime muse at both Chanel and Fendi; the London-based art director Ronnie Newhouse; and the well-known stylist Melanie Ward. Seated nearby, deep in conversation, were Silvia Venturini Fendi and the film director Luca Guadagnino. And in the middle of all this, instructing the models on their moves, was the choreographer Les Child, who worked with the late dancer and choreographer Michael Clark, who worked with Alexander McQueen and John Galliano.

Nicole Richie Takes Birthday Drama to New Heights
Birthday drama is, scientifically, the highest form of drama — nay, of art. An uninvited guest? Immediate tension. A birthday girl getting overly emotional about the color scheme of her cupcakes? The prelude to a perfect feud. Nicole Richie, baptized in the holy water of reality TV, knows this. She has just blessed us with an unrivaled nugget of birthday drama that surpasses all Housewives dinners and Below Deck meltdowns combined. It’s succinct. It’s suspenseful. It’s high-stakes. It involves vanity, personal safety, and cake. Behold: Nicole Richie’s hair catching fire from her birthday candles.A post shared by NICOLE RICHIE (@nicolerichie)Let me walk you through these six seconds (a Vine???) of high-stakes birthday drama. It starts as all boring birthday-cake videos do. Here is Richie, leaning over her cake in what appears to be the perfect birthday Going-Out Top. It is a face cake (the best kind), depicting what I believe is a young Richie dressed as a Smurf. The candles have been inserted along the bottom of the cake, i.e., in close proximity to Richie’s beautiful birthday hair. The stage is set.

The Bees Have Gone Too Far
Listen, I know that generally speaking, the bees are good and we need them. I know that they are, and have been, dying at alarming rates due to existential menaces such as giant bee-thirsty hornets and almond milk. But that does not excuse the recent behavior of a bunch of honeybees in Cape Town, which murdered 63 endangered African penguins — in cold blood, I might add. A clinical veterinarian for the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds, which reported the crime on Facebook, told The Guardian that the killing spree was likely “a fluke,” which … it had better be. The details are grisly, and penguin slaughter is unacceptable.According to the SANCCOB, the bees carried out their massacre sometime between September 16 and 17, at the Boulders African penguin colony in Simon’s Town. “Losing over 60 healthy and most likely breeding, adult African penguins is quite a blow for the Boulders colony, and the species that is already in trouble,” rangers with the group wrote in their post. “Some of these birds would have had eggs and chicks, and one partner often can’t supply sufficient food or leave the chicks alone.” Wow, legions of little chicks potentially orphaned or starving, all because of these goddamn bees? Why would they do something like this??

Jake Gyllenhaal Says He Actually Does Bathe
Jake Gyllenhaal has clarified his comments about bathing. Last month, the actor joined in on the celebrity cleanliness discourse in an interview with Vanity Fairthat was meant to promote Prada's new Luna Rossa Ocean fragrance. Related | Jake Gyllenhaal Says Bathing Regularly Is UnnecessaryOddly enough though, the way he tried to sell it was by saying that he found "bathing to be less necessary, at times," before citing some old Elvis Costello lyrics about "good manners and bad breath [getting] you nowhere." And his rationale? Well, he believed that there was a "whole world of not bathing that is also really helpful for skin maintenance, and we naturally clean ourselves."However, Gyllenhaal appeared to backtrack on his initial comments during a recent screening of his new film, The Guilty. According to him, the remarks were meant to be a joke, as he claimed to have "answered a question where I was being sarcastic and ironic, and it's followed me around."

Is Nicki Minaj Trying to Distract Us From Her Legal Trouble?
Nicki Minaj is, most recently, the woman responsible for a slew of unfortunate tweets otherwise known as “ball gate.” But some suspect the nation’s preeminent vaccine skeptic may have staged a Twitter meltdown to distract from a bigger scandal: a lawsuit alleging she’s been harassing a woman who accused her husband of sexual assault. Regardless of her intent, her anti-vaxx fiasco appears to have backfired. In addition to spreading misinformation and feuding with public-health officials, Minaj has also drawn even more attention to her current legal trouble.Here’s what we know.On August 13, Minaj and her husband Kenneth Petty were hit with a lawsuit from Jennifer Hough, who says the couple has been harassing her to recant her report of Petty raping her in 1994. At the time of the assault, both Petty and Hough were 16 and living in Jamaica, Queens. In September 1994, Hough told police that Petty had forced her into a house at knifepoint and raped her, after which she escaped and told security guards at her high school, who called the police.

16 Eyeliners Your Uptight, Easily Offended Waterline Won’t Mind
Eyes are very sensitive. This is especially true of the eye area we we refer to as the waterline — that thin, wet strip of flesh where the edge of your eyelid hangs out with your eyeball. It isn’t particularly fun to touch or think about, unless eyeliner is involved. If you want a better-than-average smoky eye or just want your eyes to look bigger, it helps to line your waterline. You can also try tightlining — lining just the upper waterline to make your lashes look even thicker.But not all liners are created equally. You shouldn’t repeatedly rub any old pencil or liquid liner on your lash line or waterline with reckless abandon. You shouldn’t rub anything at all! What you want are kohl or kajal liners with creamy formulas and rounded tips that smoothly glide across the waterline before setting in place. Here are 16 eyeliners with highly pigmented formulas, reliable staying power, and soft shapes that work great.
