Inside Lily Allen and David Harbour’s quickie Vegas wedding

Published

on

Just when you thought 2020 would pass wholly bereft of harmlessly distracting content, the internet has seized gleefully on Lily Allen’s iconic Las Vegas wedding.

The Smile singer, 35, beaming ear-to-ear, shared selfies last night of the Big Day to her social media accounts: an ecstatic Lily Allen and beau David Harbour flanked by the obligatory Elvis impersonator; Lily Allen and beau David Harbour guffawing in front of a seedy Vegas lashes bar; Lily Allen minus beau David Harbour but in full white wedding regalia demolishing an In-N-0ut burger.

No paps, just snaps. But for those asking “David Who? Las What Now? In-N-Where?”, or simply what’s the sitch with this hitch, here is a sauce-soaked digest.


Harbour club


The beau is reportedly a bae. David Harbour, 45, Hawkins police chief and Millie Bobby Brown’s fictional foster father in the hit Netflix sensation Stranger Things, wooed Allen last year by wearing fake Lily Allen merch he bought on eBay to their first date. Yes, he wore a T-shirt with Lily Allen’s face on it to a date with Lily Allen.

In January, they attended a Bafta tea party together. The impressively jawed actor (it’s usually hidden behind a scruffy-chic beard), who also starred in the Hellboy reboot and Scarlett Johansson’s Marvel superhero vehicle Black Widow, spent quarantine in Croatia with Allen and her two children, whom she shares with ex-husband Sam Cooper. The pair’s engagement was rumoured in May, when Lily shared an Instagram photo and enthusiastic fans noted that her ring was on a certain finger. Cute.

Waking up in Vegas


The “I Do” heard around the world took place at the Graceland Wedding Chapel, which is where luminaries like Jon Bon Jovi and Billy Ray Cyrus (father of pop star Miley) have also tied the knot.

Court records show the wedding took place on Monday. “In a wedding officiated by the king himself, the people’s princess wed her devoted, low born, but kind credit card holder in a beautiful ceremony lit by the ashen skies courtesy of a burning state miles away in the midst of a global pandemic,” Harbour wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday. Allen wore a short, double-breasted Dior dress in white for the night.

Burger dressing


A white Dior dress combined with a famously sloppy burger is, in theory, an odd match up. But the lack of convention is so clearly part of this occasion’s charm that all is not only forgiven, it is actively fawned over.

“Lily Allen inhaling an In-and-Out Burger in her Dior wedding dress is a mood”, concluded one internet onlooker. “Get this s*** framed”, added another fan. “I want it on a pillow.” The sight of the Not Fair chanteuse in her Sixties-inspired designer dress tucking into a dirty burger outside a diner is alone enough to pluck on the nostalgia strings.

Further pictures of Harbour, Allen (wearing a patterned face mask, just to be Covid-secure) and her two children tucking into the full take-out meal is enough to make the heart grow three sizes. Probably. Or, at the very least, keep you vaguely preoccupied for a fleeting moment.

‘Dynamite’ week: BTS sets ‘Tonight Show’ residency, ‘Tiny Desk’ record

Published

By

Get ready to be blown away by BTS all next week.

The South Korean boy-band sensations — who recently scored a No. 1 hit with “Dynamite,” their first English-only single — have secured a major late-night gig: a weeklong residency on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” beginning Monday, Sept. 28.

In addition to delivering a musical performance each night, BTS will join Fallon for comedy bits and a virtual interview on Sept. 30, when the group will be the lead guest on the show.

BTS is clearly on a roll: They broke a viewership record with their Monday appearance on NPR’s “Tiny Desk Concert” series, which was filmed in Seoul. The performance — which featured a medley of “Dynamite,” “Save ME” and “Spring Day” — broke the series’ record for most YouTube views in its first day. And they shattered that 24-hour record in only 25 minutes.

Of course, last month the band’s “Dynamite” clip broke the YouTube record for most views by a music video in its first day, too.

And after making their debut performance at the MTV VMAs last month — also winning four Moonpersons — the K-pop heartthrobs are continuing to make big moves by appearing on Fortnite’s Party Royale Main Stage with a new “Dynamite” video (with new choreography, natch) premiering Friday at 8 p.m.

And after the video, “Fortnite” players can groove on over to check out the “Dynamite (Tropical Remix)” after-party.

No doubt, the BTS party is going nonstop.

Is Jessie J’s Song ‘Simply In Love’ About Channing Tatum? Here’s Why Fans Think So

Published

on

By

Just because they’re your ex doesn’t mean you can’t still pen love songs for them. Case in point: fans think Jessie J’s song Simply In Love is about ex Channing Tatum. And for good reason. Not only is the song about a love story, per The Sun, J, herself, reportedly has said in an Instagram Story that she wrote it “about when you first meet someone and you want to steam ahead.” The singer reportedly added, “Sometimes running can ruin a foundation that a relationship needs, which is to just be chill, stay still and enjoy the moment.” (Elite Daily reached out to J for comment regarding claims the song is about Tatum, but did not hear back in time for publication.)

That could be a hint at her relationship with Tatum, which reportedly didn’t pan out because the timing didn’t quite seem to be right. “Channing and Jessie have different priorities and focuses that don’t really align,” a source reportedly told People when they first reportedly split in Dec. 2019. “They had a fun relationship, but it just didn’t work out. Channing needs to be in L.A. a lot so he can spend time with Everly. Jessie prefers England. They are still friendly, though.” (Following that reported split, the two reportedly briefly got back together only to reportedly split again for the same reason in April 2020.)

Maybe J sees it as though they were rushing to put a label on it when they could’ve, instead, just chilled and let things play out? The lyrics of the song sure seem to hint at something like that. The pre-chorus goes:

Take it slow

Baby steps

So we don’t ruin what comes next

Let’s be still

Just stay calm

So we’re not rushing what we are

The chorus reiterates a similar message:

Pressure off

Just have funIt’s not a race, no need to run

If it’s forever

Let’s just simply be in love

Then there’s the second verse, which ends with another big hint at her relationship with Tatum:

Let’s hold hands and squeeze a little tighter

If you stand still, I won’t pull away

You make my heavy feelings a little lighter

And I brought you back to life, they say

ICYMI: J and Tatum started dating just months after he announced his split from wife of nine years Jenna Dewan, so the line where J says “I brought you back to life, they say” could be a nod to her helping him once again find love.

And, finally, I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t mention this first verse, which also majorly seems to be hinting at a situation with an ex she’s still thinking of:

You’re always dreaming ’bout tomorrow

But I’m still overthinking yesterday

Where you go, I know I want to follow

Let’s make a promise on today

I mean, I totally think it was about Tatum. But, of course, I could also be majorly reaching here. Guess J is the only one who really knows what this song is about.

Someone Designed This Bizarre $199 Coronavirus Protection Helmet And People Are Confused

Published

Since the beginning of this year, our daily check of “phone, wallet, keys” now includes one more item—a face mask. Mandatory in much of the world, face masks have become something… ordinary, don’t you think? But since the future is here, you can ditch your plain old and uninspiring face mask for something a bit more dystopian.

If you’re a fan of sci-fi or keen on looking like someone who has just stepped out of a spacecraft, these astronaut-like helmets might be for you. Called MicroClimate Air, the new product has caused quite a stir on social media. Scroll down below to find out more!

More info: MicroClimate Air

For those who aren’t so keen on wearing face masks, there’s a new solution

The dystopian-looking protective helmet is made with a see-through bubble at the front and a washable fabric that covers the head and neck over the back. Bubble Boy vibes? We think so. The MicroClimate Air also has a built-in ventilation system that utilizes high-powered fans to pull air through filters in the mask. The company promises a “fresh and fog-free” life for helmet wearers, who’ll have to pay $199 for the comfort.

It’s called MicroClimate Air, and it’s an acrylic visor that doesn’t fog up

The new futuristic product is the brainchild of Michael Hall, an entrepreneur who was skiing when the idea for these helmets popped into his head. “Michael Hall envisioned a new wearable whilst skiing with his family in the mountains of Utah,” the website reads.

The MicroClimate Air sells for $199

“As he spoke with his children on the lift, he could not see their faces. They were obstructed by ski masks, goggles, and other clothing. This equipment quickly gets wet, cold, and gross. He envisioned a new kind of wearable that would create a ‘micro climate’ around the head.”

To make it comfortable, cushion liners are included

The MicroClimate Air website also says that there are nine US patent applications that protect the new helmet, including its airflow design and the washable filter fabric. The company also notes that it “works well with AirPods.”

It’s all fine and dandy, but what do people think? Well, their opinions are… divided, to say the least.

But people are unsure about the new, futuristic product
