2019 has already been an incredibly tumultuous year in the personal life of Bella Thorne, and this roller coaster isn’t slowing down. A couple months ago, she and her girlfriend, YouTuber and professional thirst trap Tana Mongeau, split up, and she announced her breakup with Mod Sun just last week. If I had been through two tough breakups in less than three months, the only thing I’d be making out with would be a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, but Bella Thorne is a special creature. She’s already moved on with someone who’s way hotter than Mod Sun ever could be (even if he showered).
His name is Benjamin Mascolo, and he has all three of the most important traits: he’s hot AF, he’s Italian, and he’s a successful musician. On Wednesday, just two days after she announced her split from Mod, Bella Thorne was spotted at lunch with Benjamin. At the restaurant, they were seen kissing, and he was also caressing her leg. Homegirl moves fast, and I have mad respect for her game, considering my dating life trajectory is getting ghosted by a guy once every three years. Over the weekend, Bella was seen leaving her house with Benjamin, so they obviously weren’t just at a random lunch meeting.

Benjamin Mascolo seems like an out-of-left-field choice for Bella Thorne, but I’m kind of loving it. He’s 25, and when I say he’s Italian, I don’t mean he lives in New Jersey and has a mom who knows how to make spaghetti sauce. I mean he’s like…really from Italy. He’s part of the musical duo Benji & Fede, which is apparently very popular in Italy. I listened to some of their music, and while I can’t understand any of the lyrics, their number-one song on Spotify is called “Moscow Mule,” so they have my immediate stamp of approval.
Both Benjamin and his musical partner Federico look like the kind of men who would absolutely ruin my life, but I’d be fine with it.
I mean…both of these men can f*ck me up, no questions asked. For Bella Thorne’s sake, though, I hope that Benji is a nice, upstanding gentleman who will always promptly respond to all of her texts. Mostly, I just really want to know how these two even met in the first place. Benji & Fede are big stars in Italy, but they really haven’t crossed over into the US at all. I mean, they don’t even have a Wikipedia page in English. Maybe Benji slid into Bella’s DMs from across the pond, and if so, I’d love if he could do the same for me.
So will this just be a momentary fling for Bella Thorne, much like her brief “friendship” with Scott Disick? Or will she spend the next two years of her life posting grungy bathroom selfies with Benji? Only time will tell, and obviously I’ll be watching every step of the way. Whatever happens, I’m sure there will be some good stories that Bella can use for her next book of poems.

If you know anything about us here at Betches, it’s that there’s nothing in this world we love more than watching the social experiment that is Bella Thorne’s Instagram presence. And there has been a lot to keep up with over the past year. First, we learned that Bella is not just the musical genius behind the instant classic “B*tch I’m Bella Thorne,” but also a budding business mogul, when she dropped her new makeup and lingerie lines, Thorn by Bella and Filthy Fangs, respectively. Then she educated the masses on wtf a throuple is by announcing that in addition to dating the human equivalent of a dirty sock, Mod Sun, she was also dating Tana Mongeau, a girl who is most famous for propositioning Miley Cyrus via
a cry for help Twitter. Well, in addition to singer, songwriter, actress, throuple advocate, and business mogul, don’t forget that Bella Thorne is a best-selling author!
That’s right, the girl who brought us the lyrics “been inside the club since I was hella short (hella short)” and “pussy scuba diving, need a surfboard” is getting paid actual money to write a full-blown book. Bella Thorne’s book is called The Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray. Just writing the words “Bella Thorne” and “published author” in the same sentence is giving me stress eczema, but it’s not even her first book! Back in 2014-2016, Bella actually published a YA trilogy, which I just ordered on Amazon. That said, this new book is a whole different thing, and I’m sure you have a lot of questions about it, like “why” and “how” and “what did I do to deserve this.” Well lucky for you betches, I did
a very minimal internet search some digging and can now answer all of your burning questions. So here’s everything we know about Bella Thorne’s new book thus far:
Apparently It’s Already A Bestseller

My book is NUMBER ONE best seller OVER NIGHT u guys made me number one ❤️BOOK IS ONLY 15 dollars right now. I’m so happy, all the loss and pain I went through/going through hopefully reading this helps u not feel so alone.

YOU GUYS MAKE ME HAPPY. So let me help u with some of those darker places ❤️?? #thelifeofawannabemogul
Last week, Bella started promoting her book on Instagram via a series of posts in which I literally thought she was promoting scribbles on the back of random receipts. Apparently I was mistaken and that’s just her book’s aesthetic. My apologies! When I found out she was actually promoting her book, I was alarmed for a number of reasons. For one, in the caption she claims the book is a “#1 bestseller overnight” despite that fact that the book hasn’t even been released yet. As a person who used to work at one of the largest book publishing houses in the world, I can definitively say
oh, sweetie no this is not how bestsellers work. In order for a book to be a bestseller it has to first be released and then sell over 9,000 copies in its first week. Since the book doesn’t even hit shelves until July 9th, I can only assume that by “#1 bestseller” she’s referring to the book having good pre-orders, which, while good, is not at all the same thing.
The Preorder Will Include Photos

I have collected so many special memories over the years with my Polaroid obsession. I thought it’d be cute to send u one. When you order my book right now, you’ll get one of those special little memories to keep <3 #thelifeofawannabemogul for everyone asking the song is DO NOT DISTURB by me and @steveaoki
Speaking of the preorders, if you order Bella Thorne’s book in advance, she will send you personal polaroids of her from her everyday life. Considering that her Instagram feed reads like soft-core porn, I can only imagine the “behind the scenes” images from her life she’s going to give to her most loyal fans. I would put money on it that they involve some drug paraphernalia and cleavage. I mean, look at the above video and then tell me I’m wrong.
Bella Thorne’s Book Is A Collection Of Memoir Poetry
According to Amazon, The Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray is a “collection of illuminating and inspiring poems that chronicles her personal struggles, relationships, and wild-child lifestyle, all with her trademark wit and wisdom.” Lol. First of all, Bella Thorne is known for many things, and I’ll even give her wit, but wisdom?? Are we sure? Secondly, did she intend for the title of this book to be a random string of words that actually makes zero sense? It’s like she Googled “impressive words” and used the first five that applied to create a sentence.
In addition to Bella’s poetry, the book will also feature
crude drawings innovative art throughout. Bella’s teased a few of these already on Instagram, including a picture of poorly drawn dice, a clock, and black scribbles. You’ll notice Bella’s drawings are also featured on the cover of the book, which resembles the background image I chose for my MySpace page after my mother refused to drive me to Barnes & Noble so I could get the latest book in the Princess Diaries series. And also the lyric video for “Look What You Made Me Do.”
So there you have it, that’s everything we know about Bella Thorne’s book. All jokes aside, Bella has been very open about her struggles with mental health and the media, which is what we need from celebrities right now. It looks like this book is going to get personal about that journey. which I imagine will be helpful to people who share or identify with those struggles. Maybe this is where that trademark wisdom will come in? Not going to lie, I might pre-order it, or at least convince a friend to let me borrow it.
The Life of a Wannabe Mogul releases on July 9th, so go ahead and mark your calendars, Betches.

As you may have noticed from the abundance of candy and flowers passing you by while you sat quietly in your cubicle and tried not to burn this city to the ground, yesterday was Valentine’s Day. Just me? Whatever, I’m allergic to
love flowers anyway.
Never one to let an opportunity to
embarrass herself on social media prove her love pass her by, on Valentine’s Day, Bella Thorne posted a tribute to her boyfriend, Mod Sun, and it’s beautiful and he’s perfect and I can see why they’re in love. KIDDING. I actually looked at it and had many thoughts, number one being what the fuck? So, I’m here to break down this post for you and analyze its most batshit crazy elements. Spoiler alert: there are a lot.
1. The Outfits
Let’s start with Bella’s, because hers is a little easier to analyze. It appears that Bella saw an episode of Parks and Recreation, thought to herself, “This is what big girls wear to work,” and threw on her best button-down and business pants. Unfortunately the camera on Parks and Rec never quite pans low enough to capture the characters’ shoes. So Bella put on her highest stripper heels, said, “nailed it!” and walked out the door. Mod Sun’s outfit seems a little more conflicted, which makes total sense considering he got dressed while on bath salts. The pants look like they were stolen from Guy Fieri’s closet, and the shoes look like they were ripped from the feet of a middle school girl on her way to the bus. Do we think he gets his entire wardrobe from petty theft? And don’t even get me started on the scarf. Where’d ya find a pink rabbit to skin, Mod Sun?
2. The Caption
Bella’s caption states that they have been “saying I love you since the first day we met.” Honey. The first day you met him, you should have thrown a pity dollar in his grimy guitar case and WALKED THE FUCK AWAY. You haven’t even been telling your mother you love her since the first day you met her, and you’ve decided that this dude who most definitely smells like a mixture of B.O. and weed was the person to start with? As our president would say: Sad!
What Bella should have said:
3. The Emojis
The final confusing element of this complicated and tragic puzzle we call an Instagram post is the emojis. I get the heart and the camera, but the tree and the baby are really calling to me here. Why choose a tree? Did they meet on his weed farm or are they just two people that appreciate nature while they’re high? What does it all mean? I also fully subscribe to the notion that you should not use a baby emoji unless you are actually having a baby. Which in this case could be true. The chances that a man in fire print pants knows how to use protection are slim to none. I’d also like to take this time to give an honorable mention to the location tag, “Falling In Love,” which is both nauseating and inconsistent (and also not a geographical place). Bella, you JUST said you’ve been telling Mod Sun you loved him since the day you met, and here you are months later, only now saying you’re falling in love? Which is it, hmm?
It looks like we’ll all be leaving here with more questions than we started with. You’re welcome. And for those of you who only came here because you thought Bella’s post would be half naked, I’ll kindly point you to her last Insta of the night and send you on your merry way.
Over the past year, Bella Thorne has made some, um, interesting life choices. From hooking up with Scott Disick in France to looking/acting like a total mess at all times, she’s given us ample reason to worry about her decision-making skills. Well, now Bella Thorne is dating a new man, we really need to talk about it.
His name is Mod Sun, and dating him is easily the most questionable thing she’s done yet, which is saying a lot. It’s like how every season of The Bachelor is the most dramatic season ever, except what I just said is true. Welcome to Mod Sun, the most dramatic season of Bella Thorne’s glitter-covered life.
Mod is a rapper from Minnesota (yeah) who’s apparently in a group called “The Poundzzzzzz,” which absolutely sounds made up, but nope. His name is an acronym that stands for “Movement on Dreams, Stand Under None,” which sounds like something your stoner ex-boyfriend would put in his Instagram bio. Basically, he’s a fucking intellectual.
In addition to being smart, he’s also suuuuuper hot. He basically looks like if Perez Hilton lived in the jungle for a year, or like every guy you see selling molly at Bonnaroo. He has long hair that Bella recently dyed green and red, which is about as cute a look as you’d imagine. Look, we’re not saying Scott Disick is the perfect man, but honey come on, when you’ve showered, YOU CAN DO BETTER. Oh, and he’s also a full decade older than her, because of course.
They’ve apparently been together since sometime in the fall, and Bella has openly posted about their relationship on social media. That’s cute we guess, but it’d be cuter if Bella went away somewhere for about six months and just thought about life. Try it sweetie, see you in June!
