The latest GoT theory suggests that Arya didn’t really kill Littlefinger

Game of Thrones season 8 is almost upon us, and Westeros is in a bit of a mess. Not only have you got Jon Snow getting his man bun in a twist over his aunt, Daenerys Targaryen, no one quite knows what the hell pregnant Cersei is plotting and Jaime quite literally just wandered off.

And then there’s Arya, adding faces to her little Faceless Man sack at an alarming rate. The last time we saw the young Stark, she was slitting the throat of Petyr Baelish, aka Littlefinger. After a season of believing that Sansa was secretly a baddie plotting to take down her brother and take over Winterfell (and she still could be, if this theory is anything to go by), fans watched as the sisters united and turned on sneaky Littlefinger in front of everyone.

With the sly traitor out of the picture, it looks like they’ve got everything sorted in the North, ready for Jon and his new beau’s return.

But what if Littlefinger isn’t actually dead? One YouTuber, Neo, has explored the possibility that he’s actually still out there in Westeros somewhere – and this is how he managed to avoid death.

We all know that the Faceless Men have the ability to shape-shift (Arya spent what felt like 349 episodes learning how to master the art, remember?), so what if Littlefinger paid a Faceless Man to die in his place?

In season seven, episode five, Littlefinger is seen talking to an unknown woman. YouTuber Neo suggests that the lady in question warned Littlefinger that his days were numbered in Winterfell, and he pays her with a coin not dissimilar to the one that Arya used to pay a man in Braavos. The theory continues that the woman was a Faceless Man, initially in the North to kill Arya, but Littlefinger instead convinced her to act as himself so that he could scuttle off safely.

Fans on Twitter appear to believe it, too.

Does it all add up, though? Would a Faceless Man really sacrifice themselves for a power-mad random? And can they use faces of people that are still living, and that aren’t first peeled off and put in their little satchels? Plus, where would Littlefinger hide out considering he has absolutely no allies left?

Not sure about this one, but it does give us something to look forward to.

Bring on April 14th.

Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox never fail to make news, from their double dates to their mini Friends reunions, with the most recent taking place at Jen’s 50th birthday party.

This week however the onscreen (and real life) BFFs made news for the wrong reasons as their plane was forced to make a terrifying emergency landing.

The pair were travelling to Mexico on Friday aboard a private jet to see in Jen’s birthday in Cabo San Lucas, joined by their inner circle, including Screenwriter Molly Kimmel and actress Amanda Anka.

A mechanical issue however reportedly happened during take off, relating to one of the tyres on the landing gear.

The jet was forced to make an emergency landing in California’s Ontario International Airport, with USA Today reporting that the 2pm landing was ’slightly shaky but successful’.

The plane had to circle the area for approximately three hours before they could land safely, in order to burn off enough fuel, according to Fox11, and the airport is reported to have been shut down specifically.

All 12 passengers onboard have been reported safe and Jen’s birthday group is said to have boarded a bigger plane to make it to their destination.

We hope they have a relaxing holiday after all that drama!

And it’s so relatable

The Cambridges are one of the most talked-about families in the world, but while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spend the most time in front of the cameras, it’s their children that really steal the limelight.

From Princess Charlotte’s signature sass and Prince George’s cheeky grin to the recent update on Prince Louis being a fast crawler, the three miniature royals are growing up in front of us, with Kate and Wills never missing an opportunity to give us all an update.

This week was no exception, as the couple made multiple royal visits to mental health organisations. But it wasn’t actually their children they were opening up about, rather the stresses that come along with being a first time parent.

Attending a Future Dad’s session, Prince William opened up about becoming a father for the first time and the ‘fear of having a newborn baby,’ something that everyone related to.

‘The fear of having a newborn baby, that’s very vulnerable and that’s what you spend most of your time worrying about, thinking what do I do? And that’s the thing isn’t it? It’s very daunting of how tiny they are when they first arrive,’ the Prince reportedly told the room of expectant fathers.

He continued: ‘They are so fragile and everything’s so tiny, their little fingers and toes, you do feel like if you move them around too much they’re going to break almost but they don’t!’

And he wasn’t alone, with Kate Middleton also opening up about being a parent and the stresses that come with it at a Mental Health in Education conference this week, announcing: ‘I was very naive myself as a parent of really just how important particularly the early years are for children’s futures.’

Well, we think they’re doing an excellent job.

The Killing Eve season 2 trailer has officially landed

The Killing Eve season 2 trailer has officially landed


And we need to see it. NOW.

Killing Eve was undoubtedly one of the most talked-about TV shows of 2018, with the thriller series turning the already acclaimed Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer into household names.

But even though it feels like the first season has just left our screens, we’re already desperate for its second instalment – and we have A LOT of questions.

How did Villanelle escape after getting shot by Eve? Will the two women spark up a relationship in season two? And what couture looks will the high-fashion assassin be sporting next? (We’re still dreaming about that Molly Goddard pink dress from season one).

Thankfully, it looks like Villanelle is almost back, with the series creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge answering our prayers and dropping season two’s trailer just this week.

Spoiler alert – it looks incredible.

What can we expect? A lot of black comedy set in Rome and Paris.

Plus, according to the video clip, we can also expect Villanelle getting hit by a car, some comic book PJs, a terrifying kitchen knife scene, a pig mask and a chilling looking flower delivery.

Killing Eve’s second season comes to BBC America on Sunday 7 April, and while there’s no word yet as to when it will be aired in the UK, we’re sure it won’t be far behind.

Ariana Grande fans are boycotting her new song for the strangest reason

Ariana Grande fans are boycotting her new song for the strangest reason


And she’s essentially supporting it.

Ariana Grande has been one of most talked-about women in the world this year, from her hilarious tattoo typo to dropping her ‘7 Rings’ music video.

The pink-hued vid predictably went viral, raking in over 56 million views in four days, and becoming the most talked-about music video since, well, Ariana’s ‘Thank You, Next’.

It made headlines again this week however, after Ariana fans or ‘Arianators’ as they have named themselves, started a movement to boycott ‘7 Rings’.

But it wasn’t her comments about weaves or her tattoo typo that prompted the boycott. Instead, it was an effort to get Ariana’s latest song, ‘Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored’, to number one.

Yes, Arianators are actually boycotting one Ariana song to give another Ariana song the top spot.

Why? To make Ariana the first artist to debut three singles at number one – and the 25-year-old is finding it hilarious.

‘Can u please tweet #BOYCOTT7RINGS to show your solidarity’, one fan tweeted the singer, to which she replied,’ r u ok?’.

When she understood the reasons behind the cause however, she got involved, tweeting about her amusement at the whole thing.

‘This is a wild time for us lmao – do ur thing but also like how is this our problem rn …… what the fuck #thankunext.’

She later continued: ‘Y’all are so insane and funny and i love u. nothings funnier than ‘boycott seven rings’….. i can’t lmao. whatever’s meant to be will be, babies – i ain’t goin nowhere #thankunext’

Will it work? We’ll have to wait and see.

Like we needed another reason to love Ariana Grande!

John Mayer’s blunt comments about his break up with Jennifer Aniston have resurfaced

John Mayer’s blunt comments about his break up with Jennifer Aniston have resurfaced


And ouch.

Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer are often forgotten as one of the A-list couples of the noughties, dating from 2008 to 2009 after meeting at an Oscars party.

But it wasn’t their relationship that made news this week, but instead their break up, with John’s comments about their split recently resurfacing.

Disclaimer – it’s very blunt.

The Freefallin’ singer not only announced to the world that he had broken up with the Friends actor, but also made some very controversial comments about his ex in an interview with Playboy, where he seemed to suggest that Jennifer, who was eight years his senior, was too old for him.

‘I’ll always be sorry that it didn’t last,’ the singer announced at the time. ‘In some ways I wish I could be with her. But I can’t change the fact that I need to be 32.’

Ouch.

‘If Jennifer Aniston knows how to use BitTorrent, I’ll eat my fucking shoe,’ he later said of their different approaches to technology. ‘One of the most significant differences between us was that I was tweeting. There was a rumour that I had been dumped because I was tweeting too much. That wasn’t it, but that was a big difference.’

He continued: ‘The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think she’s still hoping it goes back to 1998. She saw my involvement in technology as courting distraction.’

‘He had to put that out there that he broke up with me,’ Jennifer explained in an interview with Vogue. ‘And especially because it’s me. It’s not just some girl he’s dating. I get it. We’re human.

REX

‘And it doesn’t take away from the fact that he is a wonderful guy,’ she went on to explain. ‘We care about each other. It’s funny when you hit a place in a relationship and you both realise, We maybe need to do something else, but you still really, really love each other. It’s painful.’

She continued: ‘There was no malicious intent. I deeply, deeply care about him; we talk, we adore one another. And that’s where it is.’

John seemed to agree in the end, asking the Playboy interviewer, ‘Have you ever loved somebody, loved her completely, but had to end the relationship for life reasons?’

Well, a decade letter and the exes seem to be firm friends, with John attending Jen’s 50th birthday party just this week, along with Brad Pitt.

Move over Gwyneth – Jen knows how to consciously uncouple.

Lady Gaga’s reaction to her new tattoo mistake is hilarious

‘Too many tequilas!’

Lady Gaga has been one of the most talked-about women in the world this year, winning big at award season for her leading role and songwriting in A Star Is Born.

With just over a week until the Academy Awards 2019, people are wondering whether Gaga will add a Leading Actress Oscar to her collection, but it was’t award season that made the singer a talking point this week. Instead, it was the 32-year-old’s tattoos, with Gaga adding two to her collection.

While Gaga’s first ink was a ‘La Vie en Rose’ tribute down her spinal cord, it was her second tattoo that made the most noise.

The tribute was a nod to her own name – a musical staff featuring the notes, G A G A.

But rather than the sweet musical symbolism, the tattoo became a talking point for a hilarious error, with fans noticing that the staff only had four lines instead of five.

Gaga was quick to fix the mistake, adding a fifth staff and posting, ‘Sorry music!’

Taking to Instagram, the singer posted a photo of the correction along with the caption: ‘Music crisis averted. Too many tequilas forgot the fifth staff line poor thing. Here’s the real deal.’

She continued: ‘As a music theory student I’m appalled, as someone having fun with their friends I’m relieved.’

Like we needed another reason to love Lady Gaga!

One BAFTA winner is not happy about Prince Harry’s code name

One BAFTA winner is not happy about Prince Harry’s code name


And it’s pretty hilarious.

Royal family members often use code names, allowing them to be spoken about under the radar, whether by their security teams or their inner friendship circles.

It emerged earlier this year that both Prince William and Prince Harry used code names during their early twenties, to allow friends to talk about them or their relationships without members of the public or press finding out.

Their choices? Prince William went for ‘Steve’ and Prince Harry went a little more curve ball, opting for ‘Spike’.

Yes, Prince Harry is referred to by some people as Spike and it’s hilarious.

In fact, the royal reportedly even set up social media accounts as Spike, using the pseudonym, Spike Wells.

Rex

This week, his code name resurfaced, when his brother Prince William attended the BAFTA awards with his wife Kate Middleton.

As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge talked to guests after the ceremony, one BAFTA winner called Spike Lee couldn’t help but bring up his issue with Prince Harry’s code name, asking William to pass a message on to his younger brother.

Acclaimed director, Spike, was up for three BAFTAs this year for his involvement with BlacKkKlansman, winning one, but apparently he was far more concerned with straightening out why the Prince had chosen his name as his Facebook alias.

‘The real conversation was with William,’ the director recalled during his appearance on the Today show. ‘I said, “Come here for a second . . . I have a message for your brother. Your brother used my name as an alias on Facebook. Ask him why he did that.”’

There’s no word as to how the royals reacted but we’re sure they found it hilarious.

Last weekend marked the 2019 BAFTAs, with a host of A-listers and royalty taking to the Royal Albert Hall red carpet.

But it wasn’t Glenn Close in McQueen or Amy Adams in Prada that stole the attention, instead it was the presence of royalty, with the red carpet quite literally shut down when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge entered the ceremony.

REX

And inside the event, the admiration for the royals grew ever bigger.

That’s right. It wasn’t Bradley Cooper’s tribute to Irina Shayk or Lady Gaga’s heartfelt social media statement that caused the most excitement, it was Kate and Wills finding their seats, with the royals making a grand entrance after everyone else.

And while A-listers seemed absolutely entranced by the royal couple, with Claire Foy’s reaction becoming a viral meme, it seems that the royals found all the attention a little embarrassing, joking about it being awkward.

As Kate took to her seat, she could be seen turning to William and saying, ‘It’s so quiet!’, something that her husband laughed along with, reportedly responding, ‘let’s sit down, quickly’.

The royal couple had an important duty that evening, with Prince William as the President of BAFTA tasked with presenting the Fellowship award to Thelma Schoonmaker, something that he seemed much more comfortable doing.

These two!

So Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt have been friends for years

So Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt have been friends for years


Wait, what?

Jennifer Aniston’s 50th birthday party last weekend will undoubtedly go down as one of the most star-studded events of the year, with the guest list boasting A-listers from Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Gwyneth Paltrow, the Clooneys and Reese Witherspoon, to Kate Hudson, Ellen DeGeneres, Barbra Streisand, Laura Dern, Demi Moore, Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry.

Yes, everyone was there. But it wasn’t the presence of Reese or Ellen that got the world’s attention, instead it was Jen’s exes, with a number of them helping the Friends actor see in her birthday.

According to PEOPLE, Jen’s ex John Mayer was in attendance and while her ex husband Justin Theroux didn’t appear at the party, he did post a sweet tribute to his former wife on social media.

It was Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s friendship however that made the most news, with her first husband not only attending the LA bash, but also reportedly giving her a sweet present.

The former couple split in 2005 after five years of marriage and have not been seen together since, but following the party it has emerged that they are now good friends, reconnecting three years ago.

‘Brad contacted Jen after her mom died, and she was touched that he knew what a difficult time it was,’ a source told US Weekly. ‘Brad wishes he’d handled the end of their marriage in a more thoughtful manner. He asked for Jen’s forgiveness a long time ago, and she gave it.’

Speaking of his attendance at Jennifer’s party, another source told E! News, ‘Someone extended the invitation to Brad to come to Jen’s party and he accepted.

‘He wanted to support Jen and it was a momentous occasion,’ the source continued. ‘But that’s the extent of it. It was a social evening with a lot of people who have been a part of her life. They definitely aren’t dating or on that path. They are friendly, but that’s it.’

Going on to talk about the former couple’s relationship, the source continued: ‘Brad and Jen talk or text once in a while. If something comes up like a birthday or a big occasion they will reach out and congratulate the other. They don’t talk or see each other all the time. They aren’t a big part of each other’s lives currently, but they wish each other well and have fond memories about the good times they had together.’

Move over Chris and Gwyneth – these two are ex goals.
