My glam angels @giovannidelgado /@moanilee + my stylist @ecduzit (assisted by @maddielouviere) who fulfilled all my @gucci x Wes Anderson holiday fantasies. Thank you to all the fantastic guests who made time to drop in and lend their talents. Massive thanks to @jwowen, @sandboxent, to @mrbenwinston + Emma Conway, the whole Fullwell Co. @hannahluxdavis , NANA, a THOUSAND other people, and HUGE SPARKLY SUGARPLUM thanks to @amazonprimevideo for granting me the keys to my Christmas dreams! I had so much fun working on every single detail. Link in bio. Hope you all enjoy. Xx
Taylor Swift has reflected on the importance of song ownership in a new interview, amid her ongoing feud with Scooter Braun. The bad blood between the pair began when Braun acquired Taylor’s old record label, Big Machine and with it the masters to her first six albums. Taylor subtly referenced the fallout in a recent interview saying I think writing is really important, also from the side of ownership over what you do and make. Even if you aren’t a natural writer, you should try to involve yourself in the messages you’re sending.

Shania closed out the American Music Awards with a hits medley and admitted she was blown away by the talent on stage and now wants to work with a handful of the winners and nominees. First up is Post Malone because she said I’ve written a song for us already. She’s also planning a collab with Lizzo and Janelle Monae called Sisters. If that wasn’t enough, Twain would love to get in the studio with Harry Styles too. She said they’ve been back and forth already about collaborating, so it’s bound to happen eventually.
