The electro-pop singer is here with her new single "Venus"

Tanners has been around the world and back, and knows a thing or two about finding a place to call home. Being a queer woman from the South has been an interesting journey, so she embarked on a journey to find her place in the world, and along the way picked up plenty of stories to tell. Now residing in NYC after studying studio engineering, she channels her travels and far-reaching inspirations on new single "Venus," premiering today exclusively on NYLON.

On a recent trip to Southeast Asia, Tanners found herself staring up at the stars as she fell asleep on the beach many nights. She tells us, "The sky was jet black, but the moon and stars were so bright that you didn't even need a light. With some practice, I got pretty good at identifying stars and planets and it kind of became my party trick."

There's a reason "Venus" became her planetary focus. She explains:

Venus was the earliest to rise and was also the brightest point in the sky, so it became my reference point throughout my trip. I got back to New York and well… It's hard to see any stars at all. Even though it wasn't visible in NYC that time of year, I still looked for it every night. It was such a lovely visual reminder of this incredibly formative experience I had. So tender and bittersweet.

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.

Congrats!

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.
