Rosie O’Donnell Drops Off 18-Year-Old Son Blake at College: ‘On We Go’

Rosie O’Donnell is saying bye to her son Blake Christopher as he goes off to college.

The comedian, 56, tweeted a selfie with Blake, 18, in what appears to be his new dorm room at Marist College in New York.

“Dropped off my boy,” The Fosters actress wrote. “Hard to believe.”

Blake is the third of O’Donnell’s adopted children with ex-wife Kelli Carpenter. The former couple’s other children include Parker Jaren, 23, daughter Chelsea Belle, 20, and Vivienne, 15, who was born via IVF. The actress also has an adopted girl, Dakota “Dax” with late ex-wife Michelle Rounds.

“Dax starts kindergarten in sept/ chelsea is 21 tomorrow/ parkers a marine/ vivi a sophomore/ blakes at college,” she replied to a fan’s tweet. “I am 56/ on we go.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

O’Donnell has been an advocate for adoption for same-sex couples in the United States since the 1990s, when she adopted Parker. Last June, O’Donnell told PEOPLE through her representative that she had reconnected with her estranged daughter Chelsea, who was pregnant. Rosie and Chelsea have not had the best relationship — in 2015, Chelsea ran away at 17 in 2015, saying that the former View host had kicked her out of the home, while O’Donnell said her daughter was mentally ill. 

Chelsea told the Daily Mail that Rosie would not be a part of her child’s life.

“Rosie will not be in my child’s life,” she told the paper, adding, “and no, I do not feel sad about that to be honest.”

O’Donnell last played Rita Hendricks on the Freeform show The Fosters, which ended in June.

The Top Drops of 2018

Chris Gibbs, Union
Apparel: Kaws x Union Tokyo collection
Sneaker: Off White x Nike Presto

“The thing about a ‘drop’ that really makes it work to perfection is, it needs the following ingredients: well-designed product; limited quantities and distribution as compared to the demand; special/unique product; specific targeted customer; specific targeted marketing. Both the Off-White x Nike Presto and the Kaws x Union Tokyo collection had all of those ingredients. Some drops have less so they don’t do as well. That’s not to say they are a failure. They just they aren’t as good as when you have all of these.”
Treis Hill, Alife
Sneaker: Adidas Originals by Pharrell Williams/Nike Off-White Collection 2.

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Flexes Design Muscle, Adds New Drops Weekly

Five years in, Fabletics, the athleticwear line owned by El Segundo, Calif.-based TechStyle Fashion Group in partnership with cofounder Kate Hudson, is flexing its muscles.
Adam Goldenberg, chief executive officer of the e-commerce firm — whose brands include JustFab, JustFab Kids and its newest baby, Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty lingerie line — is focused on beefing up Fabletics’ design ranks with talent from competitor Lululemon. As the fastest-growing brand in the TechStyle stable, Fabletics’ annual sales revenue tops $ 250 million. The company generates sales of more than $ 700 million annually and is thought to be on track for an initial public offering.
Among the new Fabletics hires are Karen Pornillos, vice president of design and fashion director, who was formerly the vice president of women’s design at Lululemon and led development of Free People’s activewear line; Nancy Arnold, vice president, creative director who formerly worked at Ann Taylor, where she collaborated with Hudson on a capsule, and Shefali Shah, vice president of merchandising, who was at Victoria’s Secret for a decade.

Meet the New Egalitarian of Sneaker Drops

Santino LoConte has learned a few things since starting Reign, a Meatpacking District men’s wear store that opened last October.
First, limited-edition releases, or drops, generate the most sales, and second, building a community and offering a service are essential to the long-term success of the store, which has a partnership with Samsung C&T Fashion Group that is a minority investor.
That’s why he’s introduced Reign Releases, a microsite for releases and small capsules, and a Deadstock program that will reissue popular sneakers. LoConte said he’s been able to acquire these shoes and hold on to them because of connections within the industry. LoConte was previously the head of global product collaborations at Pony, and his father, Anthony LoConte, owns Unlimited Brand Group, formerly named Anthony L&S, which arranges licenses to manufacture footwear for Pony along with Etonic, G-Star Raw, Levi’s and U.S. Polo Assn.
This program’s first round of releases includes the Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 “Wave Runner,” the Adidas Futurecraft 4D and the Adidas HU NMD “Holi Festival.” LoConte said within 48 hours of unveiling the program, 23,000 people signed up for a chance to purchase the Wave Runner and they will be notified if they’ve been randomly selected to purchase

Snapchat Stock Drops $800 Million After Rihanna Condemned Ad Making Light of Domestic Violence

Less than a month after Kylie Jenner sent Snapchat stock into a downward spiral, another celebrity slam on the photo-sharing app has seemingly caused the company to take a major hit.

The stock prices of Snap Inc. fell around 4 percent on Thursday, reported CNN. The dip came after Rihanna responded to the app’s apology for running an ad for a game called “Would You Rather” asking users if they would rather slap Rihanna or punch her ex Chris Brown, alluding to a 2009 domestic violence incident. The market value of the app’s parent company dropped almost $ 800 million, according to the outlet.

On Friday, Snap’s stock fell another 1 percent, CNN reported.

Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel’s personal net worth dropped $ 150 million due to the decease, according to Forbes. He is currently worth an estimated $ 3.8 billion, Forbes reported.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

In 2009, Rihanna’s then-boyfriend Brown physically assaulted her in his car ahead of a Grammys party.

Brown, now 28, was charged with two felony counts — assault and making criminal threats — and the exes reached a plea agreement that spared Brown jail time after he pleaded guilty to felony assault by means likely to cause great bodily injury.

After the social media app apologized on Tuesday for running the since-pulled ad, Rihanna responded via Instagram on Thursday.

“Now SNAPCHAT I know you already know you ain’t my fav app out there! But I’m just trying to figure out what the point was with this mess! I’d love to call it ignorance, but I know you ain’t that dumb!” the 30-year-old singer wrote in an Instagram Story.

“You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV victims and made a joke of it!!! This isn’t about my personal feelings, cause I don’t have much of them…but all the women, children and men that have been victims of DV in the past and especially the ones who haven’t made it out yet…you let us down!” Rihanna’s post continued.

“Shame on you,” she added. “Throw the whole app-oligy away.”

A lawyer for the Brown shared the following statement with PEOPLE: “Whoever conceived this at Snap Chat needs to be slapped.”

“This advertisement is disgusting and never should have appeared on our service. We are so sorry we made the terrible mistake of allowing it through our review process. We are investigating how that happened so that we can make sure it never happens again,” Snapchat said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday.

After removing the ad from the app on Tuesday, Snapchat also released the following statement to the BBC: “The advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines. We immediately removed the ad last weekend, once we became aware. We are sorry that this happened.”

Last month, Snapchat’s stock dropped $ 1.3 billion in market value, according to Time, after Jenner revealed to her followers that she no longer opens the app.

The outlet also reported Wall Street analyst Mark May downgraded the stock to sell from neutral after the app’s redesign sparked negative reviews from users.

Tod’s Seeks to Surprise With Drops, Collaborations

MILAN — Tod’s chief executive officer Diego Della Valle is overturning his company’s business model and launching a new project called Tod’s Factory, in a reference to Andy Warhol.
“It’s work in progress, we started developing it around six months ago,” Della Valle revealed ahead of the Tod’s runway show in Milan on Friday. “It means we will start dropping more collections throughout the year, capsules and limited editions, in collaboration with different individuals and friends of the house.” The executive declined to provide additional details about the designers, but said the first such collection would bow in June or July.
“Collections can no longer be presented every six months, and this is part of a new way to communicate and tell our story,” he explained. “This business model offers great opportunities, we can be faster and better control the collections.” Della Valle declined to say whether the women’s fall show, designed by a team, would be the last for the house. “We want to surprise you,” he said. He has been reviewing the role of a creative director after the exit of Alessandra Facchinetti in 2016, leaving the job to the brand’s team.

J.C. Penney Drops Russell Simmons’ Argyleculture Collection

J.C. Penney has decided to discontinue selling Russell Simmons’ Argyleculture brand in light of the sexual assault allegations that caused the hip-hop mogul to step down from the helm of his many companies on Thursday.
In a statement to WWD, the Plano, Tex.-based retailer, said: “In light of the recent allegations against Russell Simmons, J.C. Penney has decided to discontinue selling Argyleculture merchandise.”
Last fall, Penney’s took over from Macy’s as the primary distributor of the preppie-inspired urban brand Simmons founded over a decade ago.
The decision came as Simmons, who cofounded Def Jam and went on to start Def Comedy Jams, Phat Farm, Tantris Global Grind and more, released a statement Thursday stating that he would be leaving these businesses.
This follows a guest column by writer Jenny Lumet in the Hollywood Reporter accusing Simmons of making her have sex with him in 1991. Simmons has a different view, but said “feelings of fear and intimidation are real.”
According to Simmons, his companies will now be led by a group of executives, but he didn’t detail who or which companies they would be leading.
“The companies will now be run by a new and diverse generation of extraordinary executives who are moving the culture and consciousness

Mick Jagger Drops a Pair of Politically Charged Songs and Videos: ‘We Obviously Have a Lot of Problems’

Just one day after his 74th birthday, Sir Mick Jagger has given a gift to his fans—two politically charged tracks with videos to match.

The pair of songs, Gotta Get A Grip” and “England Lost,” were written in response to what Jagger calls “confusion and frustration with the times we live in.” According a statement that accompanied the release, the music was born of the “anxiety, unknowability of the changing political situation.” It’s one that he fears won’t improve in the near future. “We obviously have a lot of problems. So am I politically optimistic? …No.”

The bluesy, ominous tracks—with a throbbing rhythm section and raw, urgent vocals—are reminiscent of some of the Rolling Stones‘ darker work in the late 1960s, another time of social unrest and government tumult.

“England Lost” takes its inspiration from a soccer match where an English team did exactly that, but Jagger uses the game as a metaphor for the nation’s place in a post-Brexit world stage. “It’s about a feeling that we are in a difficult moment in our history. It’s about the unknowability about where you are and the feeling of insecurity. That’s how I was feeling when I was writing. It’s obviously got a fair amount of humor because I don’t like anything too on the nose but it’s also got a sense of vulnerability of where we are as a country.”

“Gotta Get a Grip,” includes lyrics that seem particularly barbed in the wake of Donald Trump’s political ascent: “Everybody’s stuffing their pockets, everybody’s on tape/The news is all fake/ Let ’em eat chicken and let ’em eat steak/ Let ’em eat s—, let ’em eat cake.” Taking on xenophobia and over-the-top opulence, his sneer recalls Roger Waters or David Byrne at their most caustic.

“The message I suppose is – despite all those things that are happening, you gotta get on with your own life, be yourself and attempt to create your own destiny,” Jagger continues in his statement.

A “reimagined” version of the song features the British rapper Skepta, and “Gotta Get a Grip” has four additional remixes by Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, Matt Clifford, Seeb and Alok.

Jagger first wrote the tracks in April and wanted to share their messages immediately, rather than wait to complete the lengthy album-making process. “Doing a whole album often takes a long time even after finishing it with all the record company preparations and global release set up. It’s always refreshing to get creative in a different fashion and I feel a slight throwback to a time when you could be a bit more free and easy by recording on the hoof and putting it out there immediately. I didn’t want to wait until next year when these two tracks might lose any impact and mean nothing.”

Both songs are available for purchase here.

Streetwear, Sneaker Sellers Fine-Tune Product Drops

NEW YORK — On an unseasonably warm April day in New York, a young man practically skipped down Lafayette Street with friends while shouting into the screen of his smartphone, “We don’t stand in lines!”
Proudly clutching a Supreme bag, he was taunting the crowd of people gathered outside of the streetwear brand’s SoHo store for the release of its latest product. For this shopper, who was presumably filming a video of himself for Snapchat or Instagram, procuring something from the cult skater brand and not having to queue for it was an accomplishment.
Such boasting rights reflect that the frenzy around drops of coveted sneakers and limited-edition apparel has intensified — along with their frequency.

Façade Drops 40th-Anniversary Issue With Kenzo Takada, Pierre et Gilles

STILL GOT IT: Façade magazine, the cult fashion pub of the late-Seventies and early-Eighties, has gotten the band back together again for a special 40th-anniversary edition.
At a launch party at the boutique Colette Thursday, contributors and subjects of the magazine including designer Kenzo Takada, the magazine’s founder Alain Benoist, and the photographers Pierre et Gilles signed copies of the double issue.
Pierre et Gilles — or Pierre Commoy and Gilles Blanchard — rose to fame through their work for the magazine, including portraits of Andy Warhol, Mick Jagger and Iggy Pop.
A series of portraits of the photographers against bubblegum pink and robin’s egg backgrounds occupy the front and back covers of both volumes of the double issue. “We shot the first covers of Façade 40 years ago,” Blanchard explained. “Now we’re finally on the other side.”
Pierre et Gilles said they had just returned from the opening of a retrospective of their work at the Musée d’Ixelles in Brussels, which will run through May 28.
Jean-Baptiste Mondino — the fashion photographer and director of iconic music videos for Madonna, Don Henley, Lenny Kravitz and Vanessa Paradis — shot the portraits of Pierre et Gilles over the course of an afternoon at the duo’s studio.

Lil Wayne Drops New Album, ‘FWA,’ On Tidal

Lil Wayne just gave us one more reason to celebrate this Fourth of July weekend.

Though Lil Wayne dropped the new music unannounced, he previously hinted that he had something in the works with Tidal, the streaming service partly owned by Jay Z.

“I just signed a deal with my motherfucking idol Jay Z,” the “Lollipop” rapper told the crowd at KMEL’s Summer Jam in Oakland, California, in June.

Panama Also Drops Out Of Donald Trump’s Miss Universe Pageant

PANAMA CITY (AP) — Panama is joining several other Latin American nations in dropping out of the Miss Universe pageant in protest over Donald Trump’s comments about immigrants.

The Miss Panama Organization and the Telemetro television channel say that this year they won’t participate in or broadcast the Miss Universe contest partly owned by Trump.

They say the move is “a message of solidarity” to Mexicans offended by Trump’s recent description of Mexican migrants as rapists and as people who bring drugs and crime to the United States.

Panama hosted the pageant in 1986 and 2003. Contest organizers and broadcasters in Costa Rica and Mexico also have pulled out of the event.

Giselle Mavis is a student wielding the written craft to enrapture the mind much like an artist wields a brush. Ever since she’s seven she enjoyed reading to her heart’s content. She’s a mother of five and grandmother of eleven children. She resides in a small town nestled in the hills of Pennsylvania. The holidays (to her) bring happy cheer, the family gatherings and good food, tasty wine and fine company. Little Edbert Dough, a rhyme about a pre-school student that fascinates close adults with his attractive quirk loving rainfall. He’s an opposite of any kid not wanting rain to spoil their day. Whether it hits his windowpane or the roof of the house it lulls him enjoying life. He likes the sound of rain falling as he sleeps and plays in his room. His mother wonders if he’s a lonely four-year old. He’s learning to tie his shoes and button his coat for school. They live near Lake Erie a big body of water. He and his family go to Presque Isle Beach searching for seashells.

Prada Drops Out of America’s Cup

MILAN — Luna Rossa wants out.
Prada’s sailing team said Thursday it will no longer be taking part in the 35th America’s Cup, withdrawing from the competition in disaccord with new regulations voted by organizers. Citing “serious implications” determined by the overturning of rules unanimously adopted by the teams in force since June 2014, principal Patrizio Bertelli thanked his team for the work done during the past year, underscoring that its efforts have been “frustrated by this maneuver that is unprecedented in the history of the America’s Cup.”
“However, in sports, as in life, one cannot always go for compromise, after compromise, after compromise; sometimes it is necessary to make decisions that are painful but must be clear cut, as only these can make everybody aware of the drifts of the system and therefore set the basis for the future: respect of legality and sportsmanship.”
Lamenting “a lack of credibility and uncertain technical grounds for what should instead be the most sophisticated sailing competition in the world,” the team also highlighted “a waste of important resources already invested based on the rules that were sanctioned in June last year.”
The Luna Rossa team was working in Sardinia to set up the new boat for

Beyoncé Drops ‘Flawless’ Remix Featuring Nicki Minaj

Beyoncé pulled, well, a Beyoncé and dropped a remix to “Flawless” featuring Nicki Minaj late on Saturday night. Debuting on Beyoncé’s website, the remix addresses that Jay Z/ Solange elevator incident — “Of course sometimes shit goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator” — and Minaj declares herself the queen of rap, “slaying with Queen Bey.” Listen to the track over at Flawless.Beyonce.com and prepare to bow down.

Bravest Guy In Whole Wide World Wears Mentos Suit, Drops Into Tank Of Diet Coke (VIDEO)

This just may the bravest guy in the whole wide world. Or, at least, a moderately smart man in an ad for a new TV series.

For those of you who grew up believing the myth that consuming a Mentos candy with Diet Coke will make your stomach explode, the video below could be too much to handle:

Have no fear. As Discovery Channel’s “MythBusters” site explains, “When you open and drink a Diet Coke, it releases much of the pressurized carbon dioxide that forms the carbonation. As the soda warms while traveling to the stomach, the gas continues to vaporize. Any remaining might cause your stomach to expand, but it isn’t enough to spark a dangerous gassy rebellion if you chase the soda with a pack of Mentos.”

The ad was released by Epic Meal Time, a TV show premiering on FYI July 26.

Lest we forget Joshua Jackson’s haunting Pop Rocks scene in the 90’s film “Urban Legend,” you can never be too careful with candy:

TIME Regrets Naming Pope Francis ‘Person Of The Year’ After Beyoncé Drops Surprise Album

Staff at TIME have been left fuming after Beyoncé released a surprise album just days after the magazine chose the Pope as their Person Of The Year.

“I told them we should wait at least a few weeks for any late entries,” one unnamed staffer told HuffPost UK Comedy. “But they wouldn’t listen. Now look what’s happened.”

“Beyoncé unexpectedly dropping a new album is a complete game-changer,” said another. “There’s nothing Pope Francis could have done to beat this… except for releasing an album. And even then, he’d have to better 14 new songs and 17 videos.”

Beyoncé is now expected to be a last-minute entry on at least 500 end-of-year lists, including 2013’s Best Albums and 2013’s Most Overrated Albums.

23 Things Every Gay Man Should Do Before He Drops Dead

The website Queerty recently published a photo essay called “40 Things Every Gay Man Should Do Before Turning 40.” This is the latest in a line of such projects, including the bestselling book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die and the less-well-known pamphlet 600 Roadkill Recipes to Try Before You Vomit. Herewith I present “23 Things Every Gay Man Should Do Before He Drops Dead.”

Stop using the term “straight acting” (or “str8 acting,” for those who have ADHD). I hate to burst your bubble, dear, but bobbing for apples in another man’s crotch isn’t an act that most straight men get into.

(Knowingly) sleep with a gay Republican. I don’t claim to fully understand this gay Republican thing, but there seems to be an awful lot of them. Now, there are some sexy ones, so just to see how it feels to bang someone with an investment portfolio and no moral compass, give it a whirl! Disclaimer: You will have to burn the sheets afterwards.

Have a Joan Crawford film festival. I know there are plenty of classic Hollywood icons to choose from, and I adore Bette and Liz and Marilyn, but when it comes to deliciously bad, camp movie masterpieces, La Crawford takes the cake (and may just smash it into your face). Dive right into Torch Song (black face!), Strait-Jacket (ax murderess!), Johnny Guitar (dykey Western!), and Harriet Craig (her Ming vase!). Top it off with a viewing of Faye as Joan in Mommie Dearest, and the circle is complete.

Make up a new gay slang word. Here’s one: “Hobbitch,” a short, nasty homo with hairy feet. Or “hottifying,” describing something that is horrifying and gross but turns you on anyway. Or “Buttella,” a delicious dessert spread that tastes like ass.

Support your local call boy. And tip him well!

Grow up. Look, I know aging is difficult; I am going to be 34 32 at the end of the year, and I’m not thrilled. But let’s all show some dignity and maturity, shall we? For older gay men trying to retain that youthful visage of yore, please slow your roll with the injectables. I once went to get Botox and told the doctor that I wanted my face frozen, as in “total paralysis, like Christopher Reeve from the neck down.” I walked around for two weeks with one very droopy eyelid, which I blamed on an allergic reaction to a bee sting. Colony collapse disorder my ass!

Take a “gaycation.” There is still something unique and special about partying in a place where almost everybody else is an invert. (See how I threw that antiquated term in there?) Spend your dollars in Provincetown, Fire Island, and Key West before those locales are totally taken over by yuppies and baby strollers. The mombie apocalypse is coming!

Attend the Black Party. Because every homosexual needs to see a 4 a.m. stage show wherein a naked man sits on a safety cone onstage. Sits on it completely.

Do hot nude yoga. It will free you from your body issues. As an alternative, seek out hot rude yoga, where the instructor makes snarky comments about your love handles, or (my personal fave) hot nude Yoda, for all you Star Wars geeks.

Read. Try Dancer From the Dance, Faggots and Mr. Benson. Lordy, those disco bunnies carried on!

Go to the ball, Cinderella. Today’s balls may not be quite what they were in the good old Paris Is Burning days, but make no boo-boos, honey: There’s a whole new crop of children voguing, battling and serving face on the runway. Don’t get chopped!

Do some squats. ‘Cause I like guys with big butts.

Boycott anti-gay companies and groups. This list is constantly changing, but I believe current no-nos include Chick-fil-A, the Salvation Army and ExxonMobil.

Find a date for your fag hag. Bear in mind that you will have to find someone else to drive you home from the bar.

See Diana/Liza/Barbra perform live. Tick-tock, tick-tock…

Write a book. Share your story; every bit of our history that we can document is important. I’ve been meaning to do this for years, but all I keep coming up with are oddly irrelevant titles like Look Ma, No Glands: Story of a Hysterectomy.

Pick up a guy in person. Log off the PC, put away the phone and talk to someone who is actually in the same room as you! At no point should you ask him what his stats are or whether he can host.

Adopt a pet. Guys with rescue dogs and cats get laid more often, and by hotter men. I read that in a study somewhere, I swear! Also, it’s just an awesome thing to do.

Stop shopping. We get it, queen: You have the perfect home and the most au courant fashions, and you shit rubies. Now stop being a cog in the corporate enslavement machine!

Help gay youth. This is a big one, y’all. Sure, the kids seem all savvy and smart with their MySpace and Atari, but underneath they are insecure, naïve little lambs! Volunteer with groups like the Hetrick-Martin Institute, The Trevor Project and the Ali Forney Center. Just don’t pose for photos with them, ’cause bitch, you will look really old.

Demand that churches (and mosques and synagogues, etc.) be taxed. Religious institutions are just gigantic (and frequently anti-LGBT) political machines and corporate enterprises and should be taxed up to their gilded eyeballs.

Hold hands in public. Just not in front of me, please. I hate bitches who gloat.

Have a dinner party and only invite rabid Madonna fans and Gaga’s “little monsters.” Innocently toss out the question, “Who is the fiercest pop diva of all time?” and watch the bitches throw down. Meeeouwwwch!
