11.01.17: ICYMI, these are the stories everyone's talking about today

1. Perrie Edwards is now a WAG!

Perrie Edwards

It seems Perrie Edwards has moved on with a new man, and this time it's a football player! The Little Mix singer was spotted with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who plays for Arsenal FC, last November. The pair has kept their romance away from the public eye since then, but were spotted together yesterday in London. Now, they've made things official as Perrie has uploaded a snap of him to Instagram.

A source has reportedly said that Perrie wishes to keep the relationship private so she doesn’t get regarded as a stereotypical football WAG. On the flip-side, Alex also wants to be taken seriously as a football player.

They definitely make for one good looking couple!

2. The new Baywatch trailer has been released and Zac Efron’s abs need their own movie

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron are attempting to breathe new life into former small-screen favourite, Baywatch, Efron even says in the trailer that what they’re doing sounds like an “entertaining, but far-fetched TV show.”

Over the weekend paps caught Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West leaving Beyonce and Jay Z’s house in Los Angeles, and while the visit was very important (let’s not forget Ye’s infamous rant during his Saint Pablo tour), the thing that caught fans’ eyes was something totally different.

It turns out that Kanye totally has a Kimoji air freshener hanging from his rearview mirror. Yep, the iconic Kim ugly-cry face. And fans have gone nuts, calling it “true love”.

After what felt like the longest year ever, Ed Sheeran has finally returned to us. Not only has he dropped two new songs, but he just revealed he will be joining James Corden in an episode of Carpool Karaoke.

In an interview with Capital FM, he revealed:

"I've been in touch with James Corden about this for three years because he wanted me to do the first one, and I just wasn't around. I can confirm that at some point this year I will be doing Carpool Karaoke.”

He added:

"I know the whole thing is singing to your tune, but I think I'd feel a bit awkward singing to my song. I think I just want to put on some Biggie... I want to put on something really awkward and dirty, like Biggie's song 'Big Booty Hoes.'"

This is set to be the best Carpool Karaoke EVER!

5. Lauren Conrad has debuted her baby bump

Just last week Lauren Conrad revealed she was expecting her first baby with husband William Tell, and now she’s shared a snap of her baby bump!

6. Eva Mendes responds to Ryan Gosling’s Golden Globes speech

While accepting the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy on Monday, Gosling spoke about the sacrifices his “lady” Eva Mendes made, so that he could have, “one of the best experiences I’ve ever had on a film”. 

The Gos explained that during filming Mendes was raising their daughter Esmeralda while pregnant with baby number two, Amada, and helping, “her brother fight his battle with cancer". He attributed his success in his role for La La Land to her help.

He finished by dedicating the award to Eva's brother, Juan Carlos Mendes, and basically left us all in a puddle of tears. 

In response to this heartfelt speech, Mendes shared a post to Instagram of Janelle Monae. Sounds odd, right? But the beauty lies in the caption, you see. 

She wrote:

“Obviously this wasn't my favourite moment of the night....But it was definitely my favourite style moment of the night. The stunning and talented @janellemonae is killing me with this look. So so so beautiful ❤ #goldenglobes.”

7. The Kardashians were robbed… again


No matter how you feel about the Kardashian-Jenner clan, you have to admit they've had a rough year. Getting robbed at gunpoint is fairly gnarly by anyone's standards.

Now, America's royal family has another crime to deal with. According to TMZ, their L.A. boutique 'DASH' has been robbed. In a weird coincidence, the latest crime came just after 17 arrests were made in Paris related to Kim's robbery in October last year.

Authorities have revealed that a woman entered the Melrose Ave boutique on Monday 9 January and grabbed $1,600 worth of loot before fleeing the scene in a silver sedan. Considering DASH's kit is actually relatively well-priced, that's quite a haul.

So far, cops haven't been able to locate the woman. And it might have been a cleverly timed attack on the part of the robber. It's entirely possible that the Kardashians are currently up to their necks in more pressing issues. The 17 suspects arrested this week over the October crime are currently being held for questioning in France, and it's been rumoured that Kim Kardashian may have to fly back to Paris to identify her assailants.
