#45: THE WEEK IN REVIEW
Britney’s back, Kendall and Gigi are getting wings and a social media celeb has left the building. This is a recap of the 45th week of the year.
1. BRITNEY’S RETURN TO MUSIC
The original teenage pop superstar hasn’t been a hot topic in the gossip column for a long time now, and we think it’s safe to say that the days of Britney being famous for other things than music are long gone. In the middle of this past week the 33-year-old mother of two shared some long-awaited news on Twitter: “Working hard and hardly working… new album… wheeeee!” Britney number nine is in the making!
2. HEIDI KLUM’S HALLOWEEN OUTFIT
For 16 years there’s been one Halloween party that has ruled them all. Of course we’re talking about Heidi Klum’s annual bash, which took place at the New York City nightclub Lavo last weekend. As every year no one upstaged the host, who had spent nine hours applying prosthetic make-up to turn into a real life Jessica Rabbit.
3. KENDALL AND GIGI ARE GETTING WINGS
It’s been a big week for Kendall Jenner (isn’t every week?) who celebrated her 20th birthday and was announced as one of Victoria’s Secrets' new angels. Next week, she and fellow it-model (and BFF) Gigi Hadid will be taking the runway together with Lily Aldrige, Adriana Lima, Stella Maxwell, et al.
4. AN INSTAGRAM CELEB QUIT – CLAIMING IT ISN'T REAL
18-year-old Essena O’Neill from Australia went viral this week. Why? Because she abandoned her Instagram account and its 600,000 followers because of the pressure to always look perfect. Before deleting her account she renamed it to “Social Media Is Not Real Life” and changed the captions to her existing photos, letting her followers know how many tries it took her to nail the poses and how self conscious it had made her.
5. FIRST TEASER FROM GIRLS SEASON 5
HBO’s Girls is coming back for a fifth season on 21 February. This week, the first teaser for the upcoming season hit the Internet, and it was pretty much exactly what we expected. In the teaser Hannah Horvath, portrayed by Lena Dunham, is dancing like no one is watching together with her mom.
