Honey Boo Boo Gets Her "Teen Vogue" Glam On

Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompsonis ready for her closeup. After shooting to fame on “Toddlers & Tiaras,” she’s reintroducing herself in full “Teen Vogue” glam.

Just shy of her 16th birthday, Thompson says she’s not Honey Boo Boo anymore – and she’s not just a “country bumpkin.” But she doesn't mind the trolls, whether they’re body-shaming or bashing her style – because to Thompson, all that matters is, “I like myself, I am my own person.”

As you may recall,Mama June has gotten in some trouble with drugs and the law, which lost her custody of Thompson. Thompson says she’s proud of how far she’s come since her older sister Lauryn “Pumpkin” Shannon has been her legal guardian, and reveals she and June are working on their relationship.

R. Kelly Accuser Testifies He Forced All 'Girlfriends' To Write Letters

Day six of R Kelly’s sex trafficking trial featured the third day of Zel’s testimony. Going in, we knew that the woman identified as Jane Doe 5 was an aspiring singer who met him when she was 17 and spent five years of her life with him. In addition to him allegedly abusing her, forcing her to get an abortion, and giving her herpes, she claimed that he controlled her and another live-in girlfriend’s interview with “CBS This Morning” host, Gayle King.

  • Zel testified that R would make his girlfriends write “collateral” letters denying allegations of abuse in order to protect himself against possible legal actions. She claimed that he’d also make her write letters to her family members where she accused her parents of selling her out to the singer. In one, she was forced to write that while she wanted to have sex with him, he only wanted to be friends.
  • She was cross-examined by the defense. They presented the letters and other evidence in an attempt to discredit her testimony and throw blame on her parents for allegedly trying to take advantage of his fame. She insisted that the abuse was real and that the letters were a ploy Kelly allegedly used “to protect him in a trial like this from very serious charges.” One the lawyers gave a point-by-point rundown of her testimony and asked whether the blame fell “on your parents or the defendant.” She responded, “The defendant.” 

Kelly is charged with nine counts of racketeering and violations of the Mann Act. If convicted on all counts, he faces 10 years to life in prison.

Olivia Rodrigo Gives Paramore Songwriting Credit For “Good 4 U”

Olivia Rodrigois handing out songwriting credits once again. After addingTaylor Swift and Jack Antonoff as co-writers to her “SOUR” track “Déjà Vu,” because of its similarities to Taylor’s “Cruel Summer,” Olivia has now added Paramore as co-writers on the track “Good 4 U.” 

Olivia was prompted to offer up the credit to Hayley Williams and ex-guitarist Josh Farr after fans noticed lots of similarities between “Good 4 U” and Paramore’s 2007 hit “Misery Business.” Many even posted mash-ups of the two songs on social media. 

Sources tell “Variety” that Olivia’s team and Parmore’s were in touch before “Good 4 U” was released, and the credit is for an interpolation, meaning part of a previously recorded song was re-recorded as part of the new song.
