Here's what everybody's talking about:
• In honor of her new book "Timeless Beauty," Christie Brinkley shared an old swimsuit photo from Sports Illustrated that proves her beauty truly is timeless (above). Not so timeless, however, is America's taste for ridiculously high-cut swimsuits.
• Speaking of gorgeous swimsuit models, we recently chatted with Sports Illustrated newcomer Hailey Clauson, who delighted us with a story about her own grandmother ripping up her first Swimsuit Issue. Watch the video below to hear more, then for a look at Clauson in more modern swimwear than Brinkley up there.
<p>• The nominees for this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame <a href="http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/vote-for-the-2016-rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame-inductees-20151008" target="_blank">have been announced,</a> and like previous years, fans will have the chance to vote for their favorite acts from a ballot including Janet Jackson and Cheap Trick, among others. You can <a href="http://rockhall.com/voting/2016-rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame-nominees-vote/" target="_blank">vote here,</a> but remember: You're voting for your <em>favorite</em> artists, despite the winner having to endure a no-expenses-paid trip to Cleveland.</p> <p>• British actor Daniel Craig told Time Out magazine that he'd rather <a href="http://www.nbcnews.com/pop-culture/movies/daniel-craig-id-rather-slash-my-wrists-do-another-james-n440566" target="_blank">slash his wrists with broken glass</a> than play James Bond for a fifth time. This comes as disheartening news for 007 fans — not only because Craig is sick of his beloved character, but because he couldn't think up a more creative and needlessly complicated way to meet his own demise: </p> <p>• On a recent episode of "The Meredith Viera Show," Lance Bass revealed that he and his *NSYNC bandmates were <a href="http://www.toofab.com/2015/10/07/lance-bass-nsync-touching-video/" target="_blank">the victims of inappropriate "touching"</a> at the hands of someone they worked with. He didn't say whose hands <em>specifically</em>, but considering Bass has made similar comments about *NSYNC's former manager, it's not unreasonable to assume they were the chubby hands of Lou Pearlman.</p> <p></p> <p>• On Wednesday night at an L.A. gallery, Rihanna revealed <a href="http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/6721869/rihanna-album-r8-anti-title-artwork-roy-nachum" target="_blank">the cover art for her eighth studio album "ANTI"</a> (below), which features an obscured childhood photo of the singer covered entirely in braille for a unique, physical experience. So be sure to pick one up wherever physical copies of albums are still sold, which is <em>nowhere.</em></p> <blockquote> <div style="padding:8px;"> <div style=" background:#F8F8F8; line-height:0; margin-top:40px; padding:50.0% 0; text-align:center; width:100%;"> <div style=" background:url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAACwAAAAsCAMAAAApWqozAAAAGFBMVEUiIiI9PT0eHh4gIB4hIBkcHBwcHBwcHBydr+JQAAAACHRSTlMABA4YHyQsM5jtaMwAAADfSURBVDjL7ZVBEgMhCAQBAf//42xcNbpAqakcM0ftUmFAAIBE81IqBJdS3lS6zs3bIpB9WED3YYXFPmHRfT8sgyrCP1x8uEUxLMzNWElFOYCV6mHWWwMzdPEKHlhLw7NWJqkHc4uIZphavDzA2JPzUDsBZziNae2S6owH8xPmX8G7zzgKEOPUoYHvGz1TBCxMkd3kwNVbU0gKHkx+iZILf77IofhrY1nYFnB/lQPb79drWOyJVa/DAvg9B/rLB4cC+Nqgdz/TvBbBnr6GBReqn/nRmDgaQEej7WhonozjF+Y2I/fZou/qAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC); display:block; height:44px; margin:0 auto -44px; position:relative; top:-22px; width:44px;"> </div> </div> <p style=" margin:8px 0 0 0; padding:0 4px;"><a href="https://instagram.com/p/8kMpLWBM3l/" target="_blank">#ANTi #coverart @roynachum</a></p> <p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;">A photo posted by badgalriri (@badgalriri) on</p> Oct 7, 2015 at 10:53pm PDT</div> </blockquote> <p>• Despite poorly reviewed adaptations in <a href="http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/dennis_the_menace/" target="_blank">1993,</a> <a href="http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/dennis_the_menace_strikes_again/" target="_blank">1997</a> and <a href="http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/dennis_the_menace_christmas/" target="_blank">2007,</a> Warner Bros. is planning yet another <a href="http://www.cinemablend.com/new/Dennis-Menace-Getting-Another-Movie-Get-Details-86727.html" target="_blank">live-action "Dennis the Menace" film.</a> Production is still in the early stages, but the studio has reportedly made it a "priority," perhaps because Mr. Wilson will have a conniption once he learns they're giving that brat another movie.</p> <p></p> <p>• Former "Jackass" star Steve-O, who regularly sets himself on fire (see below) and voluntarily dangles over alligator pits, has been <a href="http://www.eonline.com/news/684778/steve-o-arrested-again-for-dangerous-stunt-protesting-seaworld-get-the-scoop" target="_blank">sentenced to 30 days in jail</a> for his anti-Seaworld stunt earlier this year.

The "Suffragette" star and the Mumford & Sons singer, however, are known for being <a href="http://celebritybabies.people.com/2015/10/07/carey-mulligan-pregnant-marcus-mumford-welcome-first-child/" target="_blank">"notoriously private,"</a> so they're (*corny joke alert*) remaining <em>mumford</em> on any more details of their new <em>son (</em>or daughter).</p>
