Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Selena Gomez are still kickin' it in Dubai in the days leading up to the Most Chill and Laid Back No-Pressure New Year's Ever, and Kendall definitely ordered a $3,000 custom niqab and everybody was like, whoa, okay, Kendall.

Here are the gals (and Gigi's boyfriend Cody Simpson, Gigi WOULD take her boyfriend on a girls' trip) in the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi:

Kendall, stop trying to make your niqab happen, it's never going to happen.

Redbook asked Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting if she was a feminist, and Kaley was like, ugh w/e.

Asked if she considers herself a feminist, Redbook's February cover girl replied, "Is it bad if I say no?"

Presumably more than a few people on the Internet will have an answer for her, but let the actress explain.

"It's not really something I think about," Cuoco, who will celebrate one year of marriage to tennis player Ryan Sweeting on New Year's Eve, told the magazine. "Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around... I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that's because I've never really faced inequality.

"I cook for Ryan five nights a week: It makes me feel like a housewife; I love that. I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I like the idea of women taking care of their men."

You guys, she's just bein' Kaley! More important is the fantastic photo shoot, styled by Pam, your mom's friend from book club. [E!]


In an interview with the Mirror, Sam Smith threw a little verbal side-eye at shows like The X Factor, saying it "was a very conscious decision for me not to audition. It is for people, and it isn't for people." Sometimes I like to extract adjectives from my sentences, too, just to add some mystery and flair. From The Hollywood Reporter:

Smith described how he knew X Factor and similar shows were not for him as soon as he started writing music. "I want people judging me on my voice and my songs – that's what's important to me," adding: "I always say to people: 'If you're a singer, go for it.' It's an amazing platform. But if you're not, and you're a songwriter, I think it's actually quite damaging for you to go on there."
