Joe Alwyn is a man of consistency, if nothing else. He pretty much explicitly refuses to talk about his relationship with Taylor Swift that we're all GAGGING to hear the details about.

Every now and again, we get a few tasters, but it's Swift-ly shut down (Yup, we went there).

He's continuing his award season run for his acting work in Boy Erased, Mary, Queen of Scots and The Favourite, meaning interviewers are once again clamouring to gather scandalous information.

He recently spoke about his notoriously quiet two-year relationship to one of pop's biggest singers, and commented on how his relationship is often perceived.

Alwyn's interview was with Mr. Porter's The Look magazine, and let's just saw he was less than impressed when his ties to Taylor were referred to as "strangely private".

They've managed to keep their relationship intensely secret, except for a few photocall opportunities during awards season (the Golden Globes, holla).

Whenever he's directly asked about his famous girlfriend, he essentially walks away or else skirts around the question, which is totally fair. It's his life, after all.

The actor was asked whether he feels he has to fight more nowadays for his privacy, given his relationship status to such a famous woman.

“I don’t think more than anyone else," he said. "I don’t think anyone you meet on the streets would just spill their guts out to you, therefore why should I? And then that is defined as being ‘strangely private’. Fine. But I don’t think it is. I think it’s normal.” 

The lad's dead right, most of us wouldn't tell media giants about our love lives, for fear they'd twist our words or invade our space.

To Vogue UK, when quizzed on the public's interest in him and Swift, he answered; “I’m aware people want to know about that side of things. I think we have been successfully very private and that has now sunk in for people…but I really prefer to talk about work.”

British GQ didn't get much further; "Someone's private life is by definition private. No one is obliged to share their personal life."

And on whether he'd name his favourite Taylor Swift song: “I’m just not even going to go into that side of the world." He's good at the whole silent thing, we'll give him that.

Esquire asked whether he gets advice; “I didn’t seek out advice on that because I know what I feel about it. I think there’s a very clear line as to what somebody should share, or feel like they have to share, and what they don’t want to and shouldn’t have to.”

Entertainment Tonight's reporter ventured to ask if he'd act with his belle, but he sort of shot that down too; "It’s not planned at the moment, but who knows."

You do you, Joe. You don't owe us nothing, plus the lad is extremely talented in his own right.


OK, Beyoncé fans, prepare to feel your blood boil, because an unnamed women reportedly bit Queen Bey on the face at a Los Angeles party last December.

Now, why anyone would want to do such a thing is absolutely beyond us, but the attack was witnessed by actress Tiffany Haddish who told GQ she saw the whole thing go down.

As the story goes, an unnamed actress, who had allegedly taken drugs at a Jay-Z after party, showed signs of erratic behaviour – most notable when she, y'know, bit a woman on the face.

Haddish went on to explain how Beyoncé (quite rightly) grabbed Jay-Z and stormed to the other side of the room.

“Beyoncé's at the bar, so I said to Beyoncé, ‘Did she really bite you?’ She was like, ‘Yeah.’”

Apparently the actress didn't even feel bad about the attack, and actually continued to have run-ins with other guests throughout the night.

Fed up with her antics, Tiffany told Beyoncé, "I’m going to beat somebody ass at your party. I just want to let you know that."

But of course, with Beyoncé being the pure beacon of light that she is, encouraged Tiffany to let it go and to just "have fun" instead.

"Beyonce's at the bar, so I said to Beyonce, 'Did she really bite you?' She was like, 'Yeah.' I was like, 'She gonna get her ass beat tonight.' She was like, 'Tiffany, no. Don’t do that. That bitch is on drugs. She not even drunk. The bitch is on drugs. She not like that all the time. Just chill.'"

But that's not all.

The reining Queen of Twitter, Chrissy Teigen, reckon shes knows who this unnamed actress – because, well, is there anything that women doesn't know?

And while we may never discover the identify of the mystery Bey-biting, the singer's grace and refusal to fight back has just made us love her more.




Renowned photographer, Terry Richardson, has reportedly been dropped by a number of leading fashion magazines amid allegations of inappropriate behaviour on set.

The 52-year-old is known for his sexually explicit imagery and has been accused of sexual harassment in the past – though he has continually denied the these allegations.

A recent article published in The Sunday Times posed the question; “Why is Terry Richardson still feted by fashionistas?,” and argued that the fashion industry should take a stand against the accused, just like women in Hollywood have done against producer, Harvey Weinstein.

And now, according to The Telegraph, executive president and chief operating officer of Conde Nast International, James Woolhouse, has called on the presidents’ of magazines including Vogue, GQ, Glamour and Vanity Fair, to cancel any work they had planned with the photographer.

The email, reportedly sent on Monday morning, read: “I am writing to you on an important matter. Condé Nast would like to no longer work with the photographer Terry Richardson.”

“Please could you confirm that this policy will be actioned in your market effective immediately. Thank you for your support in this matter.”

The father-of-three has worked with many high-profile stars including Beyoncé, Rhianna and Lady Gaga, and has directed a number of music videos including Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball.

Terry previously adressed the claims made against him in a 2014 Huffington Post article, saying: “I collaborated with consenting adult women who were fully aware of the nature of the work, and as is typical with any project, everyone signed releases.

“I have never used an offer of work or a threat of rebuke to coerce someone into something that they did not want to do.”

Both Terry and Conde Nast International are yet to issue statements about the reported dismissal.


If you thought the highlight of Stormzy's night at the GQ Men of the Year Awards was picking up the Copper Dog Solo Artist of the Year, you'd be wrong.

The 24-year-old, who took to the stage to accept the accolade, gave perhaps one of the most humble speeches we've heard in a long time.

Sounding genuinely touched by the events of the night, he began: "It’s such a blessing to be here. In a room full of so many legends."

And then he dropped the RK bomb.

"I got a selfie with Ronan Keating, are you mad?” he added before confirming the same on Twitter.

"At these events I just run up to everyone and beg it man just met ronan keaton are you mad," he wrote to which Ronan replied: "Nice to meet ya, Man."

Unsurprisingly, Twitter users wasted no time throwing the suggestion of a collaboration into the mix, with one writing: "Whopper collab of Rollercoaster ft Stormzy."

Oh, and if that wasn't enough of an ego boost for good ol' Ro, former Oasis frontman, Liam Gallagher, seemed equally as pleased to have made his acquaintance.

Replying to the grime artist, Liam wrote: "@Stormzy1, you say you got a selfie with @ronanofficial? I got a f****** handshake man!"

And that, ladies, is how the GQ Men of the Year Awards went down…


Remember when Taylor Swift was gifted a knitted jumper with her own picture on it by one of her fans?

It was quite a sweet (although interesting) gesture, and we had honestly believed that the obsession with Tay-Tay had peaked at that point. Little did we know that Taylor was in fact keeping a secret from many of us:

Taylor is actually a novelist.

Now, can you just imagine how many copies that would sell? The queue would be out the door at bookshops around the world, we are almost 100 per cent certain.

In her recent GQ interview, Taylor just so happened to drop this nugget of information as she chatted about books. Her book to be more specific.

If you were hoping for an in-depth post-mortem of those famous relationships of hers, then unfortunately you’re going to be left mildly disappointed.

A Girl Named Girl, still in the possession of the 25-year old’s parents, was written when she was just 14. It was about a mother who wanted a son and instead had a girl.

So, what happened to her writing career? Obviously she’s still writing music, but what about the books?

Around the time Taylor wrote the unpublished novel, her family moved to Nashville which was in order to jump start her music career.

When asked if they hadn’t moved she hadn’t become a hugely successful singer, she reckons she would still be using all of her ‘words and ideas’.

“I would have gone to college, and I would probably be involved with a form of business where words and ideas are at the forefront. Such as marketing.”


While their characters may not have actually ever shared the screen (yet, as far as we know), Game Of Thrones stars Emila Clarke and Kit Harrington have spent plenty of time together off-screen. 

The 28-year old actress has spoken out recently about what it's like to be with Kit, who plays Jon Snow, out and about. The two appear to formed quite a close bond over the last five years, despite filming in different countries.

Speaking to GQ recently, Emilia said that while she can be lucky enough to go out without being recognised, Kit is not so lucky:

"We went to a FKA Twigs gig and it was mental. I went to the loo and in the cubicle on either side the girls were like, 'That's Jon Snow out there! Don't know who that random girl is."

Ever since the HBO show's most recent series finale rumours and fan theories have been popping up everywhere regarding Kit's character Jon. Is he dead or not seems to the question that anyone who watches the show cares about. 

Emilia has outed herself as one fan who doesn't think we have seen the last of him:

"We've got the red lady [Melisandre], but what would she bring him back as? She's got to take something for herself. Let's just say I'm optimistic."

Kit himself had fans in a frenzy earlier this week as he spoke to a Belgian magazine Humo about his future with the series:

"Let's just say that Game of Thrones will remain a part of my life for a while, I'll probably be in my thirties when it's over. One thing's for sure: the day I'm no longer on Thrones is the day I'll bury myself in movie projects.”

The interview was translated by eager GOT fans and posted on Reddit, but fans will just have to wait and see what happens when the show returns. 

One thing that Emilia  apparently says she would not be so eager for fans to see however, was so much nudity. She was quoted as saying that certain sex scenes in GOT were 'gratuitous' and made her 'cringe'. However, she took to social media in efforts to clarlify her statement and explained:

“I was followed into a party by a journalist who asked me a question about female empowerment and then quoted me entirely out of context for an outlet I didn’t agree to speak with,” she went on to add:

“In drama, if a nude scene forwards a story or is shot in a way that adds insight into characters, I’m perfectly fine with it. Sometimes explicit scenes are required and make sense for the characters/story."




Ok we already knew, Kanye is pretty stylish. He has designed his own line of clothing, he is fashion week royalty, he can call a lot of the biggest designers in the world his friends and he has an extremely stylish wife and toddler. 

But it has now been made official, well by one magazine anyway, as GQ have named Kanye West the most stylish man in the world. 

According to GQ, the men were chosen not by what they wore on the red carpet, but instead by their street style.

Kanye took to the cover of the popular magazine wearing a white shirt and ripped baggy jeans.  Also joining the top 20 most stylish men alive are Pharrell Williams, Jay-Z, Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and many more.

Proud wifey, Kim, took to Instagram to share her happiness at her husband's magazine cover 


Most stylish man alive!!!!! @GQ

A photo posted by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

The GQ website explained "the team spent countless hours pulling scores of photos – pretty much every look each nominee has been caught wearing in the last few years"

Kanye has had a very successful year fashion wise, he teamed up with Adidas for the release of Yeezy season 1, which debuted during New York Fashion week and his shoe collection, Yeesy boost 350, has just been unveiled. 



You don’t have to hack into Kim Karshasian’s iCloud account to get a look at her nudey photos, because she has NO problem posting them all over the Internet herself!

The reality star posted this shot from her GQ magazine photo shoot to her Instagram a mere eight hours ago, and it has already racked up 587,000 likes. That’s a lot of likes!

Funny how she uploaded this photo after speaking about the iCloud hacking scandal, where she spoke about how cautious you have to be about privacy:

“I think it's a big wake up call for people to make sure they have every privacy setting.

“I don't even know where this cloud is or where all this information is that can be hacked into. I deleted my iCloud account ages ago because I didn't really understand it and I was aware that it was so easily accessible.”

Something tells us Kanye may have had a thing or two to do with Kim’s iCloud being deleted, seen as he is very concerned about people spying on him and his family. Though, we don’t know why she bothered when she posts photos like this of herself!

Who knows though, she was probably as well off without any clothes, as her famous booty had clearly had enough of being trapped in yet another figure hugging dress when she was leaving Annabelle's private member's club in London last night.

Quick, someone get the needle and thread!




Perhaps the rumours about Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian not getting on aren’t true. Perhaps they’re the best of friends! But when we had a look at the photos from the GQ awards last night, we couldn’t help but think that Kim and Kanye were doing their very best to keep up with the world's favourite power couple.

Is it a battle of the PDAs? Or a case of anything Beyoncé can do Kim can do, not necessarily better, but differently, shall we say? For example:

Beyoncé was awarded the Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs, which is a lifetime achievement award.

But Kim was awarded the Woman Of The Year Award at the GQ Awards! Why? Well according to Dylan Jones, she is simply “one of the most famous women in the world”. But WHY is she famous? Let’s not talk about that, shall we?

​Beyoncé and Jay Z showed everyone just how much they loved each other at the VMAs with an on stage kiss.

And Kim and Kanye spent pretty much all night showing everyone how much they loved each other too.

Ok Kim. We get it. You win the PDA competition, but Beyoncé comes up trumps in the most honourable award competition. Now please, can you two just get a room!



Zac Efron has appeared on Bear Grylls’ new show Running Wild with Bear Grylls in which he opened up about his time in rehab.

Efron said the press did little to help his addiction with alcohol.

“The challenging part was never the work…it was sort of the in-between work. The socials aspects. Everywhere you go to an extent there is press.”

Speaking on the TV show, Zac said he needed a “social lubricant” to help deal with the pressures that fame brought: “Pretty soon, you need a social lubricant. It was getting to the point where I was caring less about the work and caring more about the weekend. I couldn’t wait to go out. And sort of let loose and have fun. But when Monday and Tuesday were difficult to get through, then I was like ‘ugh this is bad.’”

Zac didn’t hold back when it came to stunts on the show either, the brave actor went from eating a can of worms, to climbing a cliff side!

We rather you than us Zac!

There were reports today that Jamie Dornan had posted this photo of himself from a 50 Shades of Grey scene:



And while we FULLY appreciate the photo, it has been confirmed that it’s not actually from the set of his new film.

It is in fact an old photo from a photo shoot he did with Rosie Huntington Whiteley for GQ magazine, and it didn’t come from his Instagram account because he doesn’t have one.

Still, it’s a very, VERY nice picture.
