Following Karl Lagerfeld's Death, People Are Wondering What Will Happen To Choupette

The Instagram-famous Birman was beloved by the iconic designer

Following the very sad news of Karl Lagerfeld passing, along with questions of the legacy he was leaving behind and how Chanel will go on without him, people wondered what would happen to his beloved cat, Choupette.

While this question may seem odd (and, in some cases, even insensitive) when discussing the death of someone, it's not when you consider how much of a cat person Lagerfeld was. Aside from being known as one of the most prolific designers of all time—he acted as the creative force behind both Chanel and Fendi for decades each (on top of his own label)—there is one other aspect of Lagerfeld's life that's we associate with him as much as a classic Chanel flap bag: his cat.

If there is any cat—or any pet, in general—on this planet that is truly living the good life in high society, it's Lagerfeld's fluffy white, blue-eyed seven-year-old Birman. Lagerfeld first obtained his feline fur baby back in late 2011, when he was asked to watch her for one of his model muses Baptiste Giabiconi. From here, it's understood that Giabiconi never got his kitten back.

In a 2012 interview with WWD, Lagerfeld revealed that not only does Choupette eat lunch and dinner with him at the table, but she also has two personal maids who keep diaries of everything she does, from her behavior throughout the day to everything she ate, and flies on private jets.

Naturally, this very pampered kitten soon grew to become Instagram-famous, even reportedly earning more money than Cara Delevingne in the year 2014 for her beauty collaboration with Shu Uemura, aptly named Shupette. Though it should be noted that Lagerfeld was quite picky about where Choupette could extend her modeling skills. "I don't allow her to do foodstuffs and things like this," he once said. "She's too sophisticated for that."

There are few things Lagerfeld loved more than Choupette. In fact, in a 2013 interview with CNN, he expressed that, if an actual legal thing, he would marry her. "There is not marriage, yet, for human beings and animals... I never thought that I would fall in love like this with a cat," he said. For the good majority of us, Choupette lives a more pampered life than we do. We can only hope that we can, someday, be reincarnated as the beloved feline of an iconic fashion designer like Lagerfeld.

While the news of Lagerfeld's death has raised some concerns over what will become of Choupette, we can be certain that she'll be left in good hands given the care that the designer gave her while alive. Whether it's in those of one of her maids, or maybe the hands of another one of fashion's known cat people, we'll just have to wait and see.

Premiering today via NYLON

Small Talks, aka Cayley Spivey, has come a long way since starting a band, then becoming the entire band herself and forging her own fan base from the ground up. On her recent album A Conversation Between Us, she began to unpack any lingering baggage with one particular song: "Teeth." Today, she premieres the accompanying music video exclusively via NYLON.

"'Teeth' is about my personal battle with letting go of the past," Spivey tells NYLON, admitting that it's easily her favorite song off of A Conversation Between Us.

Watch the video for "Teeth" below.

Must have been pretty awkward

Taylor Swift and Sophie Turner were guests on the U.K.'s The Graham Norton Show together, which must have been awkward for Turner's husband, Joe Jonas, seeing as he also happens to be Swift's ex. I wonder if his name came up?

The interview doesn't come out until Friday night, but promotional photos show the two sharing a couch. Swift is making an appearance to perform her new single, "ME!" while Turner is promoting her new film, X- Men: Dark Phoenix. But it seems necessary for the two to be asked about Jonas.

Swift was just on the Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this month, where she brought up the fact that she felt bad for putting Jonas "on blast" on DeGeneres' show back in 2008 by telling the audience that he broke up with her in a record-setting short phone call. But, according to Swift, she and Jonas are chill now, since it happened pretty long ago, which means she's probably already hung out with Turner and maybe even gossiped about him with her.

We can only hope that they get the chance to spill some tea on television.

"That's! His! Auntie!"

Leslie Jones has rewatched the Game of Thrones finale with a beer in hand, Seth Meyers at her side, and a full camera crew ready to take in all her glorious reactions. Spoilers ahead, but, if you haven't watched last week's episode already, that's kind of on you at this point.

When Jon Snow started to make out with Daenerys, also known as his aunt, only to stab her through the chest moments later, it was emotional whiplash for everyone watching. And, Jones' reactions—both from her first and second viewing—sum it all perfectly.

"That's! His! Auntie! [gagging noises]," Jones says before making an aside about calling the police if her uncle ever tried to do the same. But then the knife goes in, and Jones screams. "Did you see that?!" Jones asks, "Yeah bitch, that's a knife in you." Meyers points out the funniest part of all: "Why are you so upset about someone kissing their aunt but totally fine with someone killing their aunt?" Jones replies, "Because that bitch needed to go," and, well, same.

Other highlights from the comedians' rewatch include comparing Dany's victory speech to a bad improv gig, predicting that their dogs would have less of a reaction to their deaths than Drogon did to his mother's, and more.

Watch all of Jones' reactions from this Late Night clip below.

These lyrics are a lot

Robbie Tripp, aka Curvy Wife Guy, is back with a music video, titled "Chubby Sexy," starring his wife and a trio of models. In it, Tripp raps about his bold choice to find women with an average body size attractive.

The video begins with a series of statements laid over some pool water: "Curves are the new high fashion," "Chubby is the new sexy," "We Out Here." Tripp posits that these queens deserve an anthem, which they do. What they do not deserve is this Cursed Song. As he lists all the names he knows to call them by (thick, thicc, and BBW), one model (who I really, really hope was paid well) squirts some lotion down her cleavage, and Tripp begins dancing.

"My girl chubby sexy/ Call her bonita gordita," Tripp states in his chorus, before going on to compare "big booty meat" to the peach emoji. Another thing he mentions is that his wife can't find a belt that fits her waist, and that's why he calls her James and the Giant Peach. He then tries to dab. Here are some of the other Cursed highlights from his, uh, verses:

Got those Khaleesi curves/ Knows how to dragon slay
She like a dude that's woke/ We like a girl that's weighty
Some say a chubby girl that's risky/ But they ain't met a curvy girl that's frisky
Imma dunk that donk like I'm Andrew Wiggins.
Thick like an Amazon/ Built like Big Ben.

Tripp says one thing in the video that I couldn't agree more with: "She don't need a man." No, she does not. Please run. If you must, watch the entire video, below. Or send it to your nemesis!

See the promo here

It was bound to happen. The Kadashians and Jenners have committed themselves to letting the cameras roll on their lives, for better or for worse. So if you thought that the Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson cheating scandal was off limits, you thought wrong. The trailer for Sunday's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians was just released, and it involves the famous family working through the fallout of what happened when Woods went to a party at Thompson's house.

The teaser includes the infamous clip of Khloé Kardashian screaming "LIAAAARRRRRR." It's still not explicitly clear who prompted that strong response. She could be responding to Thompson, who clearly isn't always honest. Or she could be reacting to Woods account of the events on Red Table Talk. But the most revealing moment comes when we see Kylie Jenner—who was Woods' best friend before all of this happened—react for the first time.

In a heart-to-heart conversation, momager Kris Jenner says, "For you and Jordyn, it's like a divorce." Kylie only offers this in response: "She fucked up." Based on Woods' version of events—which I'm inclined to believeThompson is the one who fucked up. Still, I'm hoping for some kind of reconciliation between the two longtime friends. Perhaps we'll have to wait until next season for that.

Check out the promo video below.
