For its list of 100 most influential people this year, TIME asked each nominated individual to ask another well-known person to speak on behalf of their accomplishments. Rihanna asked Adele…here’s what she said: “Whenever I’ve met her, she’s been the most gracious, loyal and funny goofball of an ico. She glows like when someone’s taken a picture with a flash and you’re dazed for a few minutes after. But it’s also very clear in that glow that she genuinely doesn’t give a f**k; she’s fearless and full of all the right kind of attitude to be everything that she is and will be forever.”
Anna Faris has responded to her ex-husband Chris Pratt’s recent declaration in an interview that “divorce sucks”–by saying she completely agrees with him. She went on to confirm that they have a great friendship and always have. She also talked about Chris’ admission that he regretted posting so much about their happy home life on social media. “In what we do, there’s so much [unpredictability]. I think that it’s a lesson learned a little bit in terms of keeping relationships a little more private potentially, even though I don’t wanna,” she noted. “I pride myself on being a pretty open person, but I don’t know. It’s tough when you’re under the scrutiny.”
Kim Kardashian West announced that she, and sisters Kourtney and Khloe, have decided to close all of their DASH boutiques. She said they have all been busy with running their own brands and being moms and balancing work and family. She said they know in their hearts it is time to move on.
Meghan Markle’s half-brother Thomas Markle Jr. has some very harsh words to describe the former Suits star. In an interview published this week he said, “Meg likes to portray herself as a humanitarian, a people’s person and a charitable person, but she is none of those things to her family. She is giving the greatest ¬performance of her life. She is acting phony. Once she got into Hollywood she turned into a different person. She’s clearly forgotten her roots and her family.” Thomas also says he and other family members are “torn” over not being invited to Meghan’s wedding to Prince Harry in London next month. “Maybe the normal American family she has is embarrassing to her because we’re not producers and executive producers,” he suggests.
Pink has opened up about why she makes such an effort to call out online trolls. She says, “There needs to be some accountability to all this anonymous keyboard warrioring.” She goes on to say she takes the same approach to combating bullying in real life. “My brother was one of the most bullied kids I’ve ever seen. And that broke my heart and I decided not to be powerless about it,” she explains. “I couldn’t handle the way that these kids were to him. And so I said, ‘I’m never going to let somebody treat anybody like that. Never ever ever.'”
Former Bachelorette star Jillian Harris announced that she and her fiancé Justin Pasutto are expecting their second child in October. In the adorable Instagram reveal, the couple’s 20-month-old son Leo wears a “Big Bro” T-shirt while throwing his arms up in the air. The family dog Nacho Cilantro also appears in the photo. Jillian grew up as an only child and she says she is looking forward to the chaos of adding a fourth body to their family.
Dennis Rodman says he’s considered proposing again to his ex wife Carmen Electra, whom he was married to from 1998 to 1999. “If the opportunity were to pop up today, and if I saw Carmen, I would probably ask her to marry me again,” Rodman tells Page Six. “I have been debating about that the last couple years. I would ask her to marry me again. I bump into her every once in a while. We don’t really talk about our past marriage, just everyday things.” He adds that regardless, the two share a “special bond.” Speaking about her marriage to Rodman in 2014, Electra told Oprah, “Our relationship was very passionate. When it was good, it was amazing. And when it was bad, it was the worst.”
