#SocialGathering: Chris Pratt Crops Jennifer Lawrence Out of Photos; Prince Harry and Rihanna Get Tested for HIV Together
And Emily Ratajkowski's having naked Polaroid problems.
Can't keep up with what's been going on in the social media world? Fret not. Here, a gathering of what the stars have been up to this week on social media.
Chris Pratt Crops J.Law
While out promoting Passengers, a sci-fi romance thriller starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, Pratt isn't using the opportunity to post a lot of pics of the ever-elusive J.Law. Instead, he's cropping out his co-star — a post-breakup photo edit typically reserved for holding on to that really good pic of yourself. Either way, posting photos of Lawrence, even cropped, is a surefire way to gain followers.
Rihanna and Prince Harry Celebrate World Aids Day
Prince Harry met up with Rihanna in Barbados while enjoying an extended stay around the 50th Anniversary of Independence National Monument, during which the country celebrated 50 years of independence from the United Kingdom. To mark World Aids Day, Prince Harry and Rihanna sat together to be tested for HIV (The Guardian reported the results as negative), illustrating how far the monarchy has come since Harry's mom, Princess Diana, first helped focus global attention on the AIDS crisis in the 1980s. After getting tested for HIV with Prince Harry, Rihanna hopped in the pool with a beer, as she should.
Gigi and the Gang Grab Burgers in Glam
Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner were undoubtedly hungry after eating clean to prep for the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, held in Paris this year. Supermom Yolanda Hadid revealed on Instagram that the models dieted by eating chicken and salad and had plans for a post-runway burger, stat. So where did the girl gang go to chow down after the show and afterparty? Kim Kardashian and Kanye West-approved Ferdi Paris, of course, the fashion haunt where the hamburgers are grande in calories and taste. The icing on the cake was that Gigi changed out of her incredible Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show afterparty Versace gown into the custom Versace jumpsuit that she had worn to host the American Music Awards. After all, a custom jumpsuit covered in sheer Swarovski crystal mesh is the perfect look for the after-afterparty.
Erin Foster Ribs Leo
Barely Famous star Erin Foster saw the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show as the perfect time to dig at Leonardo DiCaprio’s preference for exclusively dating models. Leo’s current model girlfriend, Nina Agdal, isn't in the photo — Agdal, also a Victoria's Secret Angel, didn’t float with her fellow angels on the heavenly VS catwalk this year. Foster captioned the shot: “Raise your hand if you’ve ever told Leo you’re on the pill.” Tres savage!
On the subject of women's issues, @Dear_Ivanka, an artful activist account that begs the future first daughter to forgo her father’s politics, is quickly gaining momentum and international attention. The account is the work of Halt Action Group, which hopes to appeal to Ivanka Trump’s rational side by posting images of her with "open letter"-type captions. One photo shows Ivanka posing for a selfie in a bathroom, with the caption: “Dear Ivanka, I’ve been raped and I need to have an abortion.” In a statement to THR, Halt Action Group explained the nucleus of the account: “Comprised of concerned individuals who have banded together to defend our democracy against the incoming Trump administration. Many of us happen to be artists or work in the arts, but anyone is welcome to join. The Dear Ivanka account was put up in conjunction with a protest which we staged on Monday in front of the Puck building, one of Jared and Ivanka's luxury residential development projects.” The account has captured the attention of one of the artists whose work covers the walls of Ivanka’s Park Avenue palace — artist Alex Da Corte commented: “Dear @IvankaTrump get my work off of your walls. I am embarrassed to be seen with you.” Want to attend the next protest? Halt Action Group tells THR, “Plans are in the works, but nothing to share yet.” Halt Action Group had no comment when asked if Ivanka has engaged or blocked the @dear_ivanka account.
Emily Ratajkowski’s Polaroid Problems
Model Emily Ratajkowski tweeted up a storm about photographer Jonathan Leder’s plan to sell a book of nude Polaroid photos of her. Ratajkowski’s side of the story is that a couple were to be used for “an artful magazine shoot.” Leder’s side of the story, titled Leder/Ratajkowski ($80), which speaks for itself, is available for preorder here (NSFW).
I've been resisting speaking publicly on the recently released photos by Jonathan Leder to avoid giving him publicity. But I've had enough— Emily Ratajkowski (@emrata) November 30, 2016
This book and the images within them are a violation.— Emily Ratajkowski (@emrata) November 30, 2016
5 out of the now 100s of released photos were used for what they were intended: an artful magazine shoot back in 2012— Emily Ratajkowski (@emrata) November 30, 2016
These photos being used w/out my permission is an example of exactly the opposite of what I stand for:— Emily Ratajkowski (@emrata) November 30, 2016
