Watch her adventurous video for “Runaway”

Julietta is more than just your average rising indie pop act—she's a professional escape artist. Well, maybe not in the literal sense, but the New York native is known to frequently slip away from the city and into different countries in search of inspiration. Just last winter, Julietta immersed herself in the dense jungles of Nicaragua, where she recorded her infectious single "Beach Break." A spontaneous weekend trip to Florence, Italy, gave life to her bubbling single "Runaway," as well as for the single's official video, premiering right here, which was filmed at a place she loves "running away to"—her best friend's house in rural Massachusetts. She tells us:

When I got back home, I thought I should shoot the video somewhere close by that I love running away to. I grew up in this mad city, so it's very much a routine of mine to look for places to run away to every couple of weeks or so. Fresh perspectives are what keep my mind on steady beat. If I stay here too long, my head gets crowded like the 6 train during rush hour.

Directed by her friend Serena Reynolds and filmed by Oliver Theurillat and Sam Sadowsky, the hazy, lo-fi visual follows Julietta as she explores Massachusetts' woodsy landscape. "It was a super-natural hangout situation—like making a fun home video with your closest friends."

Delevingne shared why they chose now

Last week, Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson officially confirmed the rumor that they're dating, with Delevingne posting an Instagram video of the two of them kissing. Now, in a new interview, she revealed why they confirmed the rumors. Basically, it was in celebration of Pride.

In the interview with E! News at the TrevorLIVE Gala, Delevingne was asked why the pair chose this moment to take their relationship public, and she answered: "Because it is Pride, it's been 50 years since Stonewall happened, and I don't know... It's been just about our one year anniversary so, why not?"

Why not, indeed? Delevingne also said that the kissing video was "just a little something," which makes sense. After all, the couple were recently spotted lugging around a kinky sex bench, so some simple kissing must feel pretty elementary.

At the Gala, Delevingne shouted out Benson during her speech too, though not by name. "I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are," she said. "She's one of the people who help me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought." I'm swooning.

"I don't regret it at all. I mean I'm a man, and as a man, you do real things."

In 2017, Atlanta-based artist iLoveMakonnen (or just Makonnen) had already experienced exhilarating career highs and disappointing lows. Drake had hopped on a remix of his viral hit "Tuesday," and then signed him to his OVO Sound label in 2014. Hits like "I Don't Sell Molly No More" and "Look at Wrist" on his first album, I Love Makonnen, put him on track to be the next best thing in rap. Makonnen was part of a class of rappers and producers who were expanding the trap genre to broader audiences. But problems with OVO led to a delay in a follow-up album, and so he parted ways with the label and, later, announced a short-lived retirement from music. Then in January 2017, Makonnen tweeted that he was gay.
