If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me if I’ve watched Bridgerton, I’m pretty sure I’d be sitting pretty. The hit Netflix series has become a global sensation and it’s easy to see why. Yes, I did binge-watch the whole season in a weekend and phwoar – those sex scenes! In fact, Bridgerton has been somewhat of an awakening for Drew Barrymore, who admits the steamy period drama made her crave romance and inspired her to join a dating app. It’s definitely hard to ignore the on-screen chemistry between lead stars Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page and now WHO hears it’s spilling off-set (page 26). Sadly, it looks like another co-star couple have called it quits. Ben Affleck and Ana De Armas, who met on the set of Deep…

a new era for america

Whether you’re an avid follower of US politics or not, it’s been hard to avoid the roller-coaster ride that was President Donald Trump’s reign. Never has the country been pushed towards a divide more than when the billionaire entrepreneur stepped into power in 2016 – and now, four years on, the majority of Americans couldn’t be more ready for change, voting in Joe Biden as the 46th president of the United States. “January 20, 2021, will mark a new chance to heal, rebuild, and strengthen our democracy we all cherish,” tweeted Kamala Harris, two days before her inauguration as Biden’s Vice President. “Fulfilling the promise of this moment will require each of us doing our part – together.” It’s this notion of togetherness that Harris, 56, and Biden, 78 – who was…

what’s next for the trumps?

He may have lost his job, but Donald Trump won’t be retiring anytime soon. There’s talk he’ll write another book, which could net him as much as $52 million, and plans to launch a digital TV network. But his biggest move will be his rumoured run for president in 2024. However, his recent second impeachment following the riots in the Capitol on January 6 might put an end to those plans. If the Senate convicts Trump for “high crimes and misdemeanours” when he goes to trial, they may also hold a vote to bar him from running for federal office again and he could be jailed. With constant rumours swirling that her husband’s antics embarrassed her, the end of Donald’s presidency could be a breath of fresh air for Melania. “I…

women lead the charge

As Kamala Harris celebrated her and Joe Biden’s election win, she was also cheering for another incredible milestone moment. As the daughter of Indian and Jamaican immigrants, Harris, 56, is not just the first woman to be vice president of the US, but also the first Black woman and Asian-American woman to hold the role. It’s not a trend that’s limited to the Democrats, either, with woman power spreading through both the left and right sides of congress. In fact, a record 144 women – including 51 women of colour – will serve in the 117th Congress. While there’s still a long way to go before gender equality is achieved (this cohort of strong women still only amounts to 27 per cent of members of Congress), it’s a notable step in…

the squad

In 2018, three Democratic female powerhouses were elected to Congress alongside AOC – Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib – and together, the foursome became widely known as “The Squad”. The progressive pollies, who fight fiercely for issues such as climate action and affordable, accessible healthcare, all won their seats again in late 2020. “Together, we have fought for our shared humanity,” shared Pressley of their victory. “We have organised. We have mobilised … I believe in the power of us. And we’re just getting started.” Omar tweeted following the win, “Our sisterhood is resilient.” And they’ve had to be – she and Tlaib were also the first two Muslim women to be elected into Congress and have faced constant vilification from an openly anti-Islamic Trump administration. But they stand united.…
