get even more ‘people’!

One of my first memories is from when I was 6 years old, wearing a red-white-and-blue T-shirt and shorts, holding a small plastic Union Jack flag on a stick and waving it enthusiastically at the village green to celebrate Princess Diana and Prince Charles’s wedding. The excitement radiated throughout the small corner of England where I grew up; it was like this event sprinkled magic on our everyday lives. Later we rushed home and crowded around the television set to watch the majesty and romance of the occasion. The allure of the royals is just as powerful 40 years later. Kate and William and Meghan and Harry bring glamour and excitement to many around the world. The family has had its ups and downs—and the institution itself has been criticized as…

PRESIDENT BIDEN TAKES OFFICE Jan. 20, Washington, D.C. ‘A DAY OF HISTORY AND HOPE’ President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Dr. Jill Biden waved to the public outside the White House, their new residence, after he was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States—in the midst of a global pandemic and just two weeks after a violent, pro-Trump mob attacked the Capitol in a deadly riot. “Today, we celebrate the triumph not of a candidate, but of a cause, the cause of democracy,” Biden said in his Inaugural Address. “This is our historic moment of crisis and challenge, and unity is the path forward. And we must meet this moment as the United States of America.” PRESIDENT BIDEN TAKES OFFICE A STAR IS BORN Tapped by Dr. Jill Biden, poet Amanda Gorman became…

lady gaga in love - on the world stage

With her powerful vocals and inimitable style, Lady Gaga stole the show on Jan. 20 when she delivered a high-spirited performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at President Joe Biden’s Inauguration in Washington, D.C. As she took center stage, one man quietly cheered her on from the wings: Michael Polansky, her tech investor boyfriend of one year. “He was content to hang in the background and blended in,” says an attendee. “To the few people she encountered backstage inside the Capitol, she’d say, ‘This is my boyfriend.’” Afterward the couple exchanged a sweet kiss—with masks on!—before watching Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris get sworn in. “Gaga had a blast at the Inauguration and was in the best spirits,” says a source close to the singer, 34. “She’s very happy with…

teen star jojo siwa comes out

JoJo Siwa is opening up about her sexuality. On Jan. 22 the Dance Moms alum turned YouTube superstar—who has more than 42 million social media followers—tweeted a photo wearing a shirt that read “Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever.” The next day Siwa, 17, chatted with fans on Instagram Live, confirming she’s part of the LGBTQ community. When asked which “label” she prefers, the Omaha native said, “I don’t really know this answer… I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, that’s what matters.” The actress and singer—who alluded to coming out when she lip-synced Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” in a Jan. 21 TikTok—has gotten support from stars including Ellen DeGeneres and Lil Nas X. Her parents, Jessalynn and Tom, are just as encouraging. “My mom said she’s known… around two years ago…
