Lindsay Lohan wishes she could’ve ‘controlled the narrative’ early in her career with social media
Lindsay Lohan believes having social media during her early rise to fame would’ve helped her in the long run. In Cosmopolitan‘s November 2022 issue, the “Mean Girls” actress revealed that while there’s “too much” of social media nowadays, it could’ve been an asset as she came of age in the aughts. “Because now I feel like…when I first started out in the business, none of us had a say in how to control our own narrative,” she said. “There were paparazzi pictures, and then people ran with it. So I think it’s really good that in this day and age, people can say who they are and who they want to be. And I admire and appreciate that. I’m a little jealous because I didn’t have that.” On dealing with people who are critical of her online, Lindsay said, “You have to take everything people say with a grain of salt and just be you. And slow down, because everyone’s so quick right now. People just don’t stop. You’ve got to chill.”

Emily Ratajkowski says she doesn’t ‘believe in straight people’
Emily Ratajkowski, who came out as bisexual in October 2022, spoke to Harper’s Bazaar about sexual fluidity for her November 2022 cover story. “I think sexuality is on a sliding scale,” she told the publication. “I don’t really believe in straight people.” In October, the Inamorata founder appeared to label herself as bisexual after she took part in a viral TikTok trend that showed users who identify as bisexual owning a green velvet couch. Emily then stitched together a video showing herself sitting on a green couch, which led fans to believe she was coming out. “My girlfriend came over and was like, ‘B—-, have you seen the green-couch thing?’ She was laughing at me because my green couch is so big,” the “Gone Girl” actress explained. “I want to be able to have fun with how I present myself in the world without feeling like I’m a bad feminist or a good feminist…Duh. I don’t want to be a part of your club if you don’t want to have me. It’s fine!”

With his lucrative partnership with Adidas coming to an end, Kanye West‘s net worth has gone down to $400 million from $1.5 billion, as per Forbes. Yeezy, his clothing line in partnership with the athletic brand, made up $1.5 million of his net worth.
