With notes from editor-in-chief Jes sica Pels 6 A.M. Confession: Mornings are my favorite. And (sry!): Morning workouts are my even more favorite. I recently got the Future app, and y’all, it’s so good. Its personal trainer tells me the “why” behind every move, which speaks to my Virgo soul. When Madeleine interviewed for her job, I tossed in an “Are you a Virgo?” Q because it was so damn obvious! 9 A.M. I caffeinate and dive into story edits. Up first is a juicy Confessay that associate editor Taylor Andrews has commissioned. This one is about…well, let me let this URL speak for itself: Never does our team Slack light up like it does when these Confessays go live. Hence: our upcoming Confessay column in every issue of this mag! 10 A.M. Lifestyle…

confessions: streaming edition

TRUE LIFE: I’ve showered with 29 superheroes. BFFS 5EVER “My ex-roommate and I have not spoken since I moved out a year ago. She was super horrible to our other roommate (my best friend), and I didn’t want her in my life anymore. Buuut she still has a profile on my Hulu. I thought about just changing my password, but I didn’t want to tell *everyone else* who uses my account about the new log-in. (I’m lazy, sue me.) Instead, I sporadically mess up her algorithm by watching random docuseries or a few episodes of the show she’s currently in the middle of to make her lose her place. Oops.” —SARAH, 26 BRB, tat tooing your password on my arm so I never lose it. LIFE HACKS! “Like every other person on the planet during quarantine,…

Good for her! 2 MICHAEL CERA In news that should surprise exactly no one, the man is a bassist, with a selfreleased album on Bandcamp. 3 NAOMI CAMPBELL The model’s one and only album featured a photo of her shaving her legs on the cover. Iconic. 4 BRIE LARSON Excuse you, but “She Said” off her Avril Lavigne–esque album Finally Out of P.E. hit number 31 on the Billboard Hot Singles Sales chart. 5 RYAN GOSLING Dead Man’s Bones. That’s the name of his (leather-jacketwearing, I assume) rock band, which may or may not still be together. Their one album came out in 2009. 6 LUCY HALE She did place in the top five…
