Because we hope you spent your weekend not caring about anything other than what time happy hour starts, we’re bringing you our Pop Culture Roundup. Your one and only stop for the top five pop culture moments from this weekend that will get you through your mid-day Monday slump. It’s like cold brew for the soul.
After six years together, Britney Spears and Sam Asghari have called it quits on their marriage. Britney spoke out for the first time about the split over the weekend, writing on Instagram: “As everyone knows, Hesam and I are no longer together … 6 years is a long time to be with someone so, I’m a little shocked. I’m not here to explain why because it’s honestly nobody’s business !!! But, I couldn’t take the pain anymore honestly !!!” She goes on to say that she’s feeling the love from fans in some “telepathic way.” She also posted a video where a man friend licks her leg. Slay.
Taylor Swift attended Margaret Qualley and Jack Antonoff’s wedding this weekend in Long Beach Island, New Jersey. Once word got out that Taylor was at the Jersey shore, the streets were flooded. Sounds like she could’ve used a… getaway car. (lol sry)
In her three-part podcast interview with Bethenny Frankel, Rachel/Raquel Leviss confirmed she will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules next season. She said, “I refuse to not respect myself on that level where I would endure that emotional abuse any longer. I can’t do that to myself.” Filming has already resumed for the next season and all other key players are back. Which bring me to…
In her new song “Apples,” Scheana Shay seems to have a message for her former friend Rachel/Raquel. She sings: “And you said that we would always be friends / Party on the weekend / But then you’re gone without a trace / I thought you were grateful / I found out you’re fake, though / I hope there’s a place for friends like you.” She also goes on to sing about a “narcissistic psycho.” Hm, feels like some not-so-subtle messaging.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have been married for one year and celebrated by sharing some never-before-seen wedding photos on instagram. J.Lo captioned the photos “Sitting here alone, Looking at my ring ring, Feeling overwhelmed, It makes me wanna sing sing, How did we end up here, Without a rewind, Oh my, This is my life…” which sounds like we’re getting a new song pretty soon? Unless that’s just, like, how singers talk in their normal lives.
