Harry Styles just made history by becoming the first male to appear solo on the cover of Vogue magazine. Harry graces the cover of the December issue, wearing a white Gucci gown, with black jacket. Inside, Harry talks about his reputation as a fashion risk taker, noting he’s always “liked fancy dress” since he was young. He said of his style, “Clothes are there to have fun with and experiment with and play with…. When you take away ‘There’s clothes for men and there’s clothes for women,’ once you remove any barriers, obviously you open up the arena in which you can play.” He got a lot of haters over wearing the dress, but he also got a ton of support from fans, including celebs like Olivia Wilde, who’s directing Harry in his new movie, “Don’t Worry, Darling,” Elijah Wood, and Zach Braff, who said to the haters, "i think you’ve missed the definition of what a man is. masculinity alone does not make a man."

Scooter Braun has sold the master rights to Taylor Swifts's first 6 albums to Shamrock Holdings for about $300 million. But, Taylor, is now free to re-record songs from her first 5 Big Machine-issued albums. This way, fans can stream her re-recorded versions instead of the ones owned by the new owner, according to TMZ. When the news hit, Taylor took to Twitter to explain why she didn't purchase the masters back herself, saying Scooter’s team said she needed to sign a non-disclosure agreement before she cold "bid on (her) own work." The agreement insisted she "would never say another word about Scooter Braun unless it was positive." Taylor added, “My legal team said that this is absolutely not normal, and they’re never seen an NDA like this presented unless it was to silence an assault accuser by paying them off. He would never even quote my team a price. These master recordings were not for sale to me.” She later found out by letter that Shamrock had bought them. She pointed out, "This was the second time my music had been sold without my knowledge. The letter [from Shamrock] told me they wanted to reach out before the sale to let me know, but that Scooter Braun had required that they make no contact with me or my team, or the deal would be off.” And, she would’ve considered working with Shamrock after the sale but, according to Taylor, “I was hopeful and open to the possibility of a partnership with Shamrock, but Scooter’s participation is a non-starter for me." Taylor also confirmed that she's already started re-recording her albums, adding, “it has already proven to be both exciting and creatively fulfilling.”

Phil Collins will be getting his mansion back from his ex-wife Orianne Cevey in January, 2021, according to his attorney. He has been fighting to get her and her new husband out of there for a while. Phil’s attorney told Page Six that "Mr. and Mrs. Bates' plan to hold Phil Collins' house as hostage to leverage a settlement during a protracted court case was upended by the new judge's bold decision to complete the injunction hearing next week." But still, she’s doing everything she can to stay there. According to new court docs, she is now claiming that she needs to stay in the home because she has a spinal condition. She’s saying that due to this unreported condition she can’t “disrupt her daily regime and access to special equipment at the luxury waterfront property in Miami Beach or she would become ‘wheelchair bound.” The documents claim the damage to her spinal cord happened during a routine operation in 2014 following a neck injury from a martial arts exhibition in Paris. She insists she undergoes a strict physical therapy regime and without it she can’t “maintain her current condition.” Meanwhile photos on Instagram show that Orianne’s alleged condition hasn’t slowed her down in recent years. She’s actually taken at least seven trips this year, one to Las Vegas, where she married her current husband, and she even posts pictures of her boxing workouts.

New mom Hilaria Baldwin had a little accident. She posted on Instagram, “I broke my ankle yesterday because you know … 2020. I went for a run and a car passed fast on this patch or road with no shoulder where there was a berm. I ran up on to the berm to avoid the car and as I was returning to the road, I fell and broke my ankle.” Hilaria, who gave birth in September to Eduardo Pao Lucas, her son with husband Alec Baldwin, said she is dealing with a wide range of emotions now that she is forced to take a break from exercising and her responsibilities as a mom. She added, “It was silly and I’m frustrated and sad … but I’m determined to be positive and heal as quickly as possible. It’s hard because I can’t carry my babies — amongst so many other things.” Read more with OK!

“Housewives of Orange County” star Meghan King Edmonds says she has COVID-19, according to AceShowbiz. She shared on Sunday, "I tested positive for Covid. I have been safe while traveling but I had an exchange on Tuesday where I did not protect myself and this is when I had to have been infected.” She added, “My children will have to stay with my parents as they cannot stay at my house while I'm sick." In a separate post, Meghan said she’s "feeling poorly but I am ok," adding that her main symptom was "extreme lethargy,” explaining, "I don't have a fever. I do have extreme exhaustion, sneezing, a mild cough, and diarrhea. I think I'm losing my sense of smell."
Could LeVar Burton be the next host of “Jeopardy?” There’s a petition on Change.org to get the “Reading Rainbow” host and “Star Trek: The Next Generation” actor to take over for the late Alex Trebek. So far, the petition has over 50,000 signatures. For the record, producers haven’t said anything about filling the position, and it’s unclear if LeVar even wants the job, but it seems he might since he retweeted the link to the petition and said, “Even if nothing comes from it, I can’t tell how much I appreciate all y’all’s love and support!”

The people have placed their votes, and it’s almost time to crown People’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2020. The big winner won’t be revealed until Friday, but so far we know that reigning Sexiest Man Alive 2019 John Legend is ready to pass down the torch to “Aquaman” star Jason Momoa – that’s who gets his vote. Meanwhile, there’s a Change.org petition with 30,000 signatures calling for America’s top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci to be named 2020’s Sexiest Man Alive. President Donald Trump falsely declared himself the winner, Stephen Colbert decided to name himself this year’s Sexiest Man Alive, and others have nominated themselves, like, Kevin Hart, Snoop Dogg, John Mayer, Matt Damon, and Idris Elba.

Dale Moss was spotted “getting affectionate” with a woman in New York City, a source told OK!, just a few weeks after getting engaged to Clare Crawley on “The Bachelorette.” The mag reports that he was seen on Saturday at Hugo Boss and was seen leaving with “three model types.” It appeared that Dale had been drinking. The insider added that “he was spotted drinking outside in SoHo, where he was kissing one woman, but like pecks.” It wouldn’t be a total surprise if the athlete went on the show for the wrong reasons. Delaina Dixon, former cohost of VH1’s “The Gossip Table,” told Rob Shuter on his podcast, “Naughty but Nice,” that she met Dale in 2016, and when he found out about her television job, he asked her for advice on how to move his career forward. Hopefully, that’s not what he’s doing and ends up breaking Clare’s heart.

After filming on “The Matrix 4” recently finished filming in Germany, there a was a big “wrap” party to celebrate. So, how did they get around the strict rules of no social gatherings over 50 people and everyone must wear masks? A spokeswoman for the studio said, “According to the production, it was the last day of shooting. It was a celebration scene… Hygiene requirements were adhered to. The production deliberately put this shoot with many people involved at the end of the shoot.” Mm-hmm. So they pretended they were shooting a scene for the movie. But Page Six says reports there was no filming actually going on. At least they were trying to be safe-ish. One person at the party said, “There was a rapid [COVID-19] test for everyone in advance. Everyone had to come with a mask, but many didn’t wear them later.” Like I said, safe-ish. Now, a Potsdam spokesperson said their health department is going to look into the party.

Jack Black took the "WAP" challenge, and one thing is clear – someone needs to take his TikTok away. Jack wore a red Speedo for the challenge as he kicked, twisted, leg-swiveled, and did many other things no one should ever do in a Speedo. He posted the video late Sunday night and captioned it, "Challenge accepted." You can see it – fair warning, your eyes might burn – at tmz.com. The comments may be funnier than the video; one person compared Jack’s performance to when a "fish accidentally jumps out of the bowl and lands on the floor."
