My face when I'm not at home with my dog ?

Roz Purcell has something to say about ‘irresponsible influencing’.

In an Instagram post, the fitness and food influencer explained how she picks the brands she works with, and why she won’t flog the usual Insta-fare of detox teas and gummy vitamins.

“I get it, some people are in this for the short term and just want to make money but there is also a sense of respect you have to have for those who follow you,” she wrote.

“We probably turn down more than we accept but I’d rather work with brands I’m proud to vouch for than just loads.”

When I modelled, I used to just arrive at jobs and have to promote, wear or stand beside whatever was there without any consideration if I was a fan of it or not – so being in this position now where I have a choice, it’s kind of a responsibility to you that I make the right one and pick things that I have or would spend my own money on.

It seems obvious, but we’ve been on Instagram long enough to know that not all influencers (and even celebs with megabucks like the Kardashians) feel the same way. Good on you, Roz.

Cardi B told the world a) the amount of money she makes and b) the amount of tax she pays. 

Cardi posted and deleted a video giving out to people who complain about celebrities spending their money on luxurious items, adding that the government takes 45% of her earnings in tax:

That means in order to spend $500,000 you gotta make at least a million. Then an artist like me and a lot of rappers I know, they literally take care of their whole family… On top of all that, looking good for y’all, doing all this extra shit to please ya’ll, that shit costs money.

“My bills is like, I’ll say $300,000/$250,000 every single month and I try to put it cheaper and it’s just not, so,” she concluded.

It’s hard to feel too boo hoo about someone who makes a million in the first place, but to be honest we EXPECT our celebrities to buy ridiculous things and spend lots of money. So go off, Cardi.

The nightmare before …..

A post shared by Timothée Chalamet (@tchalamet) on

This woman sat beside Timothée Chalamet on a three-hour flight and they had a WHALE of a time. 

Alankrutha Giridhar tweeted her entire experience of sitting beside the Call Me By Your Name actor, from the moment she figured out it was him…

…to when he offered to FaceTime Steve Carrell for her.

The entire thread is solid gold and we recommend you read it – but in case you were wondering, they talked for a full hour and yes, she got a selfie.


And now it’s time for… #WilloughbyWatch

Charting the public’s obsession with what Holly Willoughby is wearing.

This morning on This Morning, Hols is wearing a gorge lil’ leopard print dress from Bash Paris (it looks like this one, which is sold out, but this is similar and about a hundred euro cheaper – still esspensif though). It’s a safe bet, and the punters are happy. “You’re so strong and tall, Holly!” writes one. Erm, OK.


Have your say
