North West Makes Art, Anna Delvey Returns, and the Whole World Wants to #FreeBritney
Straight from the Interview offices—which now span from midtown Manhattan to brownstone Brooklyn, L.A. to the U.K., and beyond—this is the Word Wide Web Bulletin, a compilation of our favorite internet gossip from this week. This week: North West makes art, Anna Delvey leaves prison, and the world wants to #FreeBritney. Let’s talk about it.
Though the information revealed in the New York Times documentary on Britney Spears wasn’t exactly news for long-time fans and Britney idolizers like ourselves, it did highlight a few terrifying truths—not only about the pop star’s tortured life in the public eye, but also society’s role in her tragic downfall and legal battle for independence. Being Miss American Dream since she was 17 came with a cost—a stringent conservatorship—and Spears continues to fight for her freedom in court. In fact, on Thursday, a judge overruled her father’s objection to a co-conservatorship with Bessemer Trust Co. Two more hearings are set for March 17 and April 27.
North West, Artist Extraordinaire?
The Kardashians keep making headlines, but this time the spotlight is on North West—first of her name, mother of fashion, and as of this week, master of the arts. Truthfully speaking, we knew that the daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West was destined for greatness‚ which is why we asked her to reimagine our logo back in 2017, where she also answered a few questions. Take a peek into the mind of a genius. You know what they say, “When a supreme rises, the old one fades.”
Taylor Swift is Back With Old-New Songs
In a Good Morning America announcement earlier this week, T-Swift stuck it to the man, once again. The country star-turned-pop supernova announced a fully updated version of her 2008 album Fearless and released a new version of her hit “Love Story,”—”(Taylor’s Version.)” The new album, slated for April 9, also includes six new tracks Swift wrote for the album as a teenager that were never released. We’re not crying, you’re crying.
Anna Delvey is No Longer in Prison. She’s Online.
Anna Delvey, the infamous SoHo grifter, has been released from prison. Delvey, née Sorkin, who pretended to be a German heiress to live a lifestyle of unlimited Le Coucou dinners, is back on social media merely a day after “ugh, prison life.” She posted a black-and-white selfie on Instagram followed by a nod to Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct, and her Twitter bio is simply: “I’m back.” We can’t help but stan an icon. Her life is soon to be exposed in the Shonda Rhimes series Inventing Anna starring Julia Garner and James Cusati-Moyer, who learned to love the camera with a few tips from Julianne Moore.
Judas and The Black Messiah is Finally Here
The highly-anticipated film starring Daniel Kaluuya and our Winter cover star LaKeith Stanfield is now streaming on HBO Max. Directed by Shaka King, Stanfield plays William O’Neal, the criminal who infiltrated the Black Panther Party as an FBI informant, leading to the murder of radical activist Fred Hampton. As we head into the weekend, get into the mood with this feature on the Lucas Brothers, who wrote the screenplay.
The American Golden Boy of Tennis, 23-year-old Taylor Fritz, put up a good fight against Novak Djokovic in the third round of the Australian Open. Revisit Fritz’s feature here. Meanwhile, Serena Williams, the tennis GOAT, brings it to the court, again and again. During her first match of the Australian Open, which she won (duh), Williams wore a pink one-legged catsuit directly inspired by the American Olympic gold medalist track star Florence Griffith Joyner, also known as Flo-Jo. Sweat, but make it fashion.
