Lady Gaga and Adam Driver in Gucci, That Oprah Interview, and NFTs
Straight from the Interview offices—from Manhattan’s midtown to Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn, sometimes L.A., and beyond—this is the Word Wide Web Bulletin—a compilation of some of the stories the internet has been murmuring about. From politics to drag, and everything in between. This week, invest in digital art with NFTs, Adam Driver and Lady Gaga are so hot in Gucci, and Meghan Markle and Oprah Winfrey dismantle the monarchy. Let’s talk about it.
Lady Gaga and Adam Driver, Please Destroy Me
Lady Gaga’s campaign for her second Oscar has begun, for her role in Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci as an Italian woman. Photos of Gaga have been making the rounds online ever since she posted a wildly-hot picture of herself with Adam Driver, her co-star, as Patrizia Reggiani and Maurizio Gucci simply captioned: “Signore e Signora Gucci.” Since then our brains have not known peace. Simply put, Gaga and Driver, as a couple, are insanely hot. Their sensuality is palpable, which, even through paparazzi shots, is giving us heavy “Sexxx Dreams.” As we await the release of the film, allegedly November of 2021, we leave you with more steamy pictures of Driver, captured by Steven Klein during some very personal moments. Oh, to be that knit sweater or that sandwich—you know what we’re talking about.

NFTs Are So Hot Right Now, Like $69Million Hot
Art is subjective, right? So when it comes to the latest art craze, people have a lot to say—and spend for that matter. Crypto artworks, coined earlier this year as “nonfungible tokens,” range from images to memes featuring President Joe Biden, the Nyan Cat video, Lindsay Lohan, and “Everydays—The First 5000 Days,” a collage of all the images that Mike Winkelmann, a digital artist known as Beeple, posted online. His artwork was sold this week by Christie’s in an online auction for $69.3 million, the third-highest auction price for a living artist, only after Jeff Koons and David Hockney. Christie’s accepted payment in Ethereum, another first for the 255-year-old auction house.

Meghan Markle Destroys the Crown
It’s the interview of the decade, maybe even the century. Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a revealing interview that spawned memes on memes, due to O’s reactions and pointed questions about the Monarchy. Markle really had time that day, or maybe she just had enough of all the messy shenanigans the Crown tried to pull off with her. Overall, the interview is a pretty stark peek at the inner workings of an outdated establishment that has repeatedly failed to keep up with the times. That the downfall of the monarchy comes at the hands of two Black women, well, that’s just icing on the cake. The crown is indeed heavy to carry, Meghan would know. So would Emma Corrin, who played the role of Princess Diana in the fourth season of The Crown. Revisit her Winter 2020 issue feature here.
Lena Dunham is Back with a New Generation
She gave us Girls, a show that could be described as the voice of a generation, or at least a voice of a generation, and now Lena Dunham is back with Generation. The HBO Max original series about Gen Z highlights a group of newcomers, sort of, including Chloe East (pictured above), Justice Smith, Lukita Maxwell, Haley Sanchez, Nathanya Alexander, and Uly Schlesinger. The explicit show, as it is expected from a Dunham production, follows the high schoolers as they fall in love, grow into adulthood, and try drugs, among other teenager-y things. Only three episodes are streaming right now, so time will tell whether this one hits the mark. For now, get familiar with East, who plays an unruly high schooler here, and get ready for the weekend mood with this conversation between Dunham and Robyn, whose “Dancing On My Own” featured prominently in Girls.
