Perhaps you’ve been busy at a summer internship or have been without Wifi for a week and are wondering what’s happening in Hollywood…no worries! When it comes to celebrity news, I’m always on top. So if you need something to talk about at your next family BBQ that doesn’t involve when you’re getting married or what you’re majoring in, bring up the latest news in the entertainment industry. Counter the question, “When are you having kids?” with, “I don’t know, Grandma, but Jaime King just had a baby and Taylor Swift is its godmother!” Now grab a drink, sit back, and relax, as you enjoy my latest installment of “What You May Have Missed.”
Hopefully by now I have convinced you that Shawn Mendes’ song “Stitches” should be on your playlist, but if not, let this acoustic version featuring Hailee Steinfeld do the talking instead.
The Biebs is back! Justin Bieber stopped by On Air with Ryan Seacrest to announce his new single, “What Do You Mean,” which will be out August 28. And if you are still loving his collaboration with Skrillex and Diplo on “Where Are U Now,” good news: his upcoming album is “along the same lines” as the popular song.

At least one set of Full House twins will be starring in Fuller House. Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit, better known as Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky’s twin boys Nicky and Alex, took to Instagram to share photos of the first episode’s script. Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky) also posted a picture of a birthday card she received from the whole cast, which featured the boys’ signatures. Maybe they can convince the Olsens to join the show?
Talk about a modern-day fairy godmother. Taylor Swift finally got to meet her godson, Leo Thames, born to Jaime King and Kyle Newman on July 16. Swift posted a photo with the baby as well as a shot of his hand wrapped around her finger, with lyrics from her song “Never Grow Up” as the caption.
Amy Schumer shared a picture on Twitter of her and Jennifer Lawrence riding a jet ski together with the caption, “Jlaw #maniac.” Apparently my invite to this tropical vacation was lost in the mail.
I would like to thank Gosh and his son Jeepers for this amazing Instagram video. In the midst of the Television Critics Association press tour, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess killed some time with co-star Jane Krakowski and creator Tina Fey by lip-syncing to Beyoncé. Check out the trio’s take on “Flawless.”
