1. Madonna took briefly to Instagram last year, and tired of the social media app quickly – but she’s back with a vengeance. She has posted a series of three quite unflattering pictures of herself so far.
On Saturday, she posted a picture of herself sipping from a cocktail glass and staring menacingly at the camera. Her caption: “Cheers motherf***ers! I’m on instagram.”
In the next photo, Madonna declared herself to be “Addicted to sweat !!!!!”, and shared a snap of herself immediately after exercising. In the third photo, Madonna shared a somewhat bizarre selfie in which she dons a disguise and moustache. “Im thinking of shaving my moustache!!!!”
Cheers indeed, Madonna.
2. This is why Adele is our hero: during yesterday’s Grammys, Adele ‘had words’ with Chris Brown, after he refused to stand during a standing ovation for singer Frank Ocean.
Ocean won the award for Best Urban Contemporary Album. Brown was nominated the same category and – unsurprisingly – didn’t handle his defeat with an excess of dignity. When Ocean’s name was announced, Brown applauded but stayed in his seat, as the newcomer made his way to the stage. This is despite the fact that he was sitting in the front row and clearly visible to all.
Cameras caught Adele glaring at Brown as he remained seated – and moments later she approached the R&B singer, and was seen exchanging tense words with him. Having seen evidence of Adele’s actually-somewhat-endearing potty mouth and ballsy attitude in interviews, we don’t imagine that they were having a pleasant chat about the weather.
Brown and Ocean reportedly came to blows last month outside a Los Angeles recording studio, and Brown is still on probation for assaulting his then-girlfriend – and girlfriend once more – Rihanna in 2009.
It seems that Adele’s appreciation for all things retro doesn’t just cover her aesthetics – she also has an old-school awareness of good manners. Well played, Adele.

4. OK, frocks. This year American television network CBS attempted to discourage revealing outfits from the stars, by requesting that stars not bare too much skin and “buttocks and female breasts [be] adequately covered” (male breasts are fine, then?).
Some stars took note. And wore conservative (borderline-Amish) outfits. Others gave the middle finger (or underboob) to the wardrobe edict. It was a little bit heaven, really, this juxtaposition.
