#SocialGathering: Jennifer Lawrence Apologizes for "Butt-Scratching" on Sacred Rocks; the Royal Family's Latest Portrait Decoded
And check out the Obamas' last White House Christmas card.
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.
J.Law's Foot Meets Mouth
The Passengers star offended many Hawaiians and good-natured folks after revealing on The Graham Norton Show that she scratched her derriere on sacred rocks while shooting The Hunger Games in Hawaii. After people tweeted their grievances about J.Law, the notoriously private star took to her Facebook page to make the statement below: “From Jen, to the internet: 'I meant absolutely no disrespect to the Hawaiian people. I really thought that I was being self-deprecating about the fact that I was "the curse," but I understand the way it was perceived was not funny and I apologize if I offended anyone.' ” Watch the clip below, and you be the judge: Was the actress out of line or keeping it real? If you look closely at Chris Pratt's face, it looks like he was trying to Jedi mind trick Lawrence to zip it.
Jennifer Lawrence is bizarrely proud of the fact that she is disrespectful and inconsiderate and put her colleagues at risk of physical harm— Angie J. Han (@ajhan) December 8, 2016
Another reason Jennifer Lawrence is so annoying. Knowingly messes with something sacred to Hawaiians. Then brags and makes a joke about it. https://t.co/EB6VFz0JzN— Alexis Isabel (@lexi4prez) December 7, 2016
Ivanka Trump posted a head-scratching post of husband Jared Kushner doing chin-ups with daughter Arabella for #FitnessFriday. Comments range from applause to (inevitably) comparing Ivanka and father Donald's touchy-feely relationship.
Pat McGrath’s Girl Gang
Pat McGrath’s beauty line is getting a lot of likes — and face time. Celebs like Naomi Campbell, Taylor Swift, Bella Hadid and more have been out and about wearing McGrath’s shiny products. Kate Hudson joins that group, rocking McGrath’s latest drop, the Metalmorphosis 005, an illuminator and eye shadow hybrid that comes in bronze or silver and gives that radiant glow we’re all striving for. Celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin used the Lust 004 glitter lips on Emma Stone for her inaugural SNL hosting gig. After winning WWD’s Best Prestige Launch of the Year, it’s safe to say McGrath, the most influential makeup artist in the world, knows exactly what she’s doing.
The Crown’s Jewels
The queen and royal family posed for a group photo (sans Harry) at Buckingham Palace, with her majesty and Princess Kate both wearing tiaras. A tiara, a mere item of jewelry, is not to be confused with a crown, which symbolizes power. The photo was taken when the family welcomed the world’s ambassadors and high commissioners from the U.K.’s diplomatic community for the annual Diplomatic Reception. The queen wore her sapphire tiara, commissioned in 1963 to match a sapphire suite, a gift from her father, King George VI. Princess Kate wore Princess Diana’s Lover’s Knot Tiara. In case you’re wondering, Kate isn’t wearing a sash because Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, holds the title of princess consort, and Kate doesn’t hold a royal title in the family order of Elizabeth II.
The Obama Family's Christmas Card
There’s been a lot of “lasts” lately for the Obamas — just this week, the president gave his final address to troops as commander in chief, performed his last wreath placement at Pearl Harbor and his last feminist act in search of equal pay for women. The Obama family Christmas card is a snap from the March State Dinner honoring Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The first lady, in a strapless Jason Wu gown, is flanked by the first daughters, both in Naeem Khan. “As our family reflects on our many happy years spent in the White House, we are grateful for the friends we’ve made, the joy we’ve shared, and the gifts of kindness we’ve received,” reads the card. “We wish you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season and a wonderful new year.”
