A powerful message for a vital cause

Sia teamed up with the #endHIV campaign for a new song called "Free Me." It's a sweeping piano ballad of perseverance brought to life by Zoe Saldana in the Blake Martin-directed video which Julianne Moore narrates. 

Moore introduces Saldana's character as an "expecting mother, daughter, [and] friend [who's] about to learn that HIV is taking hold in her body, attacking her immune system. And, if left untreated, will be passed on to the baby growing inside her." From there, Saldana performs the various stages an individual goes through after receiving such news: shame, despair, support, kinship. By the end, through Ryan Heffington's choreography, Saldana reclaims control. 

All purchases of "Free Me" will benefit the #endHIV campaign with 100 percent of the proceeds going to fund the Abzyme Research Foundation, a nonprofit organization focused on using pre-existing technology to bring an HIV vaccine to human trials, and then patients. "The HIV/AIDS epidemic is one that can affect anyone, particularly child-bearing women around the globe," Sia says in a press release. Indeed, it is the number one killer of women of the reproductive age around the globe. Through projects such as this, treatment can be made available to wider audience. 

"Free Me" will be available for purchase beginning at noon EST on Friday, June 9.

Seriously, the look was so controversial that tons of people on Twitter started pointing it out, and wondering who made that character decision. Well, Woodley herself has straightened it out for us.

While she wished Tana Mongeau a happy birthday on one account, her other one paints a different picture

If you're in YouTube and influencer culture as deep as the rest of the internet, you already know that Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul got engaged yesterday. How does Mongeau's ex, actress Bella Thorne, feel about the situation? According to her official Instagram account, she's totally supportive of her. But, as is usually the case, her (what I call) Finsta tells the more realistic story.

"And then she cried the white girl cry"

I'm not sure I'd even call the ongoing spat between Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus a beef. We've seen Minaj in real beef, like her ongoing feud with Cardi B that culminated in some major Fashion Week drama. But even though things aren't that level between Minaj and Cyrus, things are still definitely not okay.

Amanda Bynes has just graduated with the Class of 2019 from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. Late Monday evening, Bynes shared a photo to Twitter celebrating the achievement, posing alongside a classmate in her cap and gown.

TMZ shared additional selfies with fellow classmates from the graduation ceremony. Sources told TMZ that Bynes seemed "ecstatic," and that she was "getting tons of love from her teachers and peers."

The actress has been enrolled at the school since 2014, though, as Page Six notes, was kicked out for a short period of time toward the beginning of her studies, but returned and completed her program within five years.

In March of this year, Bynes checked into a mental health facility after an alleged relapse, following four years of sobriety. Prior to that, she had returned to the public in late 2018 with an interview with Paper in which she opened up about her experience with depression after the release of She's The Man, as well as her drug use.
