Here's what people are talking about:
• Blonde bombshell Charlotte McKinney posed for the December issue of British GQ wearing little more than a leather jacket and boots (below). In one of the shots, she's even pictured wandering London in noticeably less clothing (that link is NSFW, probably), which really makes us wonder whether McKinney and GQ aren't in cahoots with the British Department of Tourism in order to entice sight-seers.
• Speaking of McKinney, the blonde bombshell recently stopped by FNM studios to tell us all about her beginnings as a model, and how GUESS helped her embrace being a "beautiful curvy girl" while other brands wanted her to "tone down" her curves. (The monsters!) Watch the video below to learn more, and stay tuned to see some sizzling shots from her GUESS campaigns:
• "Voice" judges (and recent divorcees) Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton went public with their relationship on Wednesday, which confirms what the tabloids have been speculating for weeks. This also confirms what we've been speculating for quite some time now, which is that Adam Levine and Pharrell Williams are probably very good wingmen to have if you're single.
• Speaking of Blake: At Wednesday night's CMA Awards, co-hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley poked fun at Shelton and Miranda Lambert's recent divorce, much to the delight of the everyone in attendace … except for maybe the two people whose lives were irrevocably marred by a tragic breakup. But otherwise, fun! Watch below:
• According to new estimates by Forbes, "This Is How We Do" singer Katy Perry is the highest-paid woman in music with earnings of $135 million, followed by Taylor Swift ($80M), Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks (Fleetwood Mac earned $59.5M) and Lady Gaga ($59M). And coming in dead last, officially earning the title of least-paid woman in music, is that crazy lady at your local bus station who carries a tambourine and yells at tourists.
• Entertainment Weekly has published a first look at "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," the first in a series of Harry Potter prequel films starring Eddie Redmayne. The story is said to follow a magical zoologist on an adventure through New York, but judging by the sneak peek below, his adventure will — for a time — be put on hold while he and his friends wait on a restaurant reservation:
• Trevor Noah, the current host of "The Daily Show" on Comedy Central, was forced to miss Wednesday evening's taping after having an emergency appendectomy that morning. However, Comedy Central says he's expected to return for Thursday night's show, which makes us feel extra bad about taking three days off after stubbing our toe last week.
• TMZ is implying that Taylor Swift and Kendall Jenner are at odds with each other over their respective relationships with One Direction singer Harry Styles, mostly because that Taylor didn't go to Kendall's 20th birthday party. But you know who else didn't go to Kendall's birthday? Our Aunt Tammy. Is it possible Kendall and Tammy are feuding too? Ooooooh!
• And finally, Melissa Mathison, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of 1982's "E.T." (and the mother to two of Harrison Ford's children), passed away on Wednesday of an undisclosed illness. She was 65, and also the screenwriter of several other films, so hopefully nobody puts anything dumb about "phoning home" on her gravestone.
