Anuel AA Marries Yailin: See Photos

Anuel AA and Yailin have tied the knot. Both artists took to social media on Friday (June 10) to announce they had said “I do” and were officially husband and wife.

“Everything is in God’s hands,” the 29-year-old Puerto Rican artist captioned the video that captures the moment they are pronounced husband and wife. “Words don’t matter anymore,” he added, posting multiple emojis including hearts and a diamond ring.

In March, the couple dropped their first-ever collaboration, titled “Si Tu Me Busca,” which peaked at No. 12 on Billboard‘s Latin Digital Song Sales chart (dated April 16).

“I love you. I never imagined this moment or how it would feel. Thank you for coming into my life and giving me this happiness I’m living with you. I hope this lasts years and years. Together. Giving each other all the love in the world. Thank you for making me your wife,” wrote the 19-year-old artist, who hails from the Dominican Republic and is artistically known as Yailin “La Más Viral.”

Anuel and Yailin made their relationship Instagram0-official back in January, less than a year after he and Karol G confirmed they had broken up.

Most recently, the reggaeton artist and rapper announced he was hitting the road this year, unveiling his 2022 Las Leyendas Nunca Mueren world tour, named after his third studio album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart in December.

This summer, he’ll make his way to the U.S., visiting fans in Miami, New York, Los Angeles and more. The North American leg of LLNM, which will run from Aug. 24 in Houston until Oct. 15 in New York City, will be presented by Cardenas Marketing Networks.

Below, see the moment when Anuel and Yailin were officially pronounced husband and wife.

Here’s What Britney Spears’ Wedding Has in Common With ‘Ever After,’ According to Drew Barrymore

In 1998, Drew Barrymore got to live out her very own Cinderella story as the star of Ever After, a whimsical romantic drama inspired by the famous fairy tale. Now, Barrymore says she got to witness Britney Spears living out her Cinderella story — but this time, in real life.

On Friday (June 10), the actress-turned-daytime talk show host took to Instagram to share photos from Spears’ intimate wedding to Sam Asghari, where Barrymore was a guest.

“What I learned from Ever After is that we must rescue ourselves and yet still want the fairy tale,” Barrymore captioned the photos. “And that’s exactly what Britney did! I couldn’t be happier for her intrepid journey !!!!!!!”

The Instagram carousel includes Barrymore sandwiched in a hug by Selena Gomez and Spears (in her black-tuxedo-dress reception look) and a video of a group sing-along to Madonna’s “Vogue” with Spears, Gomez, Paris Hilton, Donatella Versace and the Material Girl herself. The carousel ends with a hilarious video of the Charlie’s Angels star trying to wrangle her chocolate-brown Valentino cape dress in the wind, saying, “I’m trying to do a pretty-girl video and I can’t stop getting hair in my mouth!”

Throughout Spears’ battle to end the conservatorship that controlled her personal and professional life for more than 13 years, Barrymore has been empathetic, given her own very public teen issues with fame, family and substance abuse. In an interview with Variety earlier this year, Barrymore said she would love to interview the embattled pop star. “We can have a unique conversation,” Barrymore said. “There’s not a ton of us out there who have publicly lost our freedom, had breakdowns in front of everyone, become punchlines and fought our way back.”

The love definitely goes both ways. On Friday, Spears also shared wedding photos on Instagram, writing in the caption: “So many incredible people came to our wedding and I’m still in shock!!! @drewbarrymore my girl crush … I was speechless.”

Melissa McCarthy Says She ‘Burst Out Crying’ When She Heard Halle Bailey’s Voice on ‘Little Mermaid’ Set

Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid is set to release in 2023, boasting an all-star cast that includes Javier Bardem, Awkwafina, Jacob Tremblay, Melissa McCarthy and Halle Bailey as Ariel.

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday (June 9), McCarthy, who plays Ursula in the upcoming film, responded to a question from a fan who asked, “How Halle Bailey’s version of Ariel in The Little Mermaid and are there any new songs in this live action version?”

“First, I’ll say I’ll be killed for anything I say,” McCarthy jokingly replied, before sharing a heartwarming story. “Secondly, we were on set and they just started playing Halle’s version of the song.”

At this point, though she didn’t reveal which song she was referring to, the actress begins to tear up, adding, “I had a truly, really — not weird reaction, just overwhelming. It’s so beautiful and it’s from such a — it’s just different. That girl has got roots down and she sings from her heart. When I heard it, there were like seven of us that just burst out crying because we had not heard it.”

“She is a remarkable young woman in every moment, how she is on set, how she is as a person and I burst out crying,” she continued. “And now I realize, now she’s thinking, ‘There’s a really old woman in front of me crying and this is weird.’ But I couldn’t get it together.”

As for the film, McCarthy didn’t reveal much, but she did say that all the “familiars” are in the film, plus “maybe” a “new friend.”

Upon seeing the clip, Bailey took to Twitter to share her gratitude. “this was so kind,” she tweeted in response. “miss you @melissamccarthy.”

Paris Hilton Skipped DJing for President Biden to Attend Britney Spears’ Wedding

Paris Hilton puts friendship above all else.

During the newest episode of her This is Paris podcast on Friday (June 10), the star was fresh off of attending Britney Spears’ and Sam Asghari‘s wedding the day prior, and turns out, she declined an invitation to DJ at President Joe Biden’s Summit of Americas dinner at the Getty Villa in Los Angeles for the event.

“I was actually asked to DJ for the president and all of the other presidents from around the world for the dinner,” she said, “but this was more important to me.”

Hilton added that she had been keeping hush about attending the wedding to absolutely everyone. “[I] was keeping it top secret all week,” she said. “Literally, I did not tell anyone, not even the people I asked [for] dresses that were sent, my whole team, my glam, my driver, everyone.”

“I’m not gonna into any details because it was the princess bride’s night and that’s her story to tell, but all I can say is that I am just so incredibly happy for her,” she gushed about the wedding. “She looked stunning. It made me so happy to see that she found her fairytale and they are a beautiful couple and just glowing.”

Spears and Asghari tied the knot in their Thousand Oaks, Calif., home, with Madonna, Selena Gomez, Drew Barrymore, Kathy Hilton, Maria Menounos, Ansel Elgort, will.i.am, her manager Cade Hudson and Donatella Versace were all in attendance.

“We really wanted to make this a small and beautiful moment with family and friends,” Spears told Vogue of the wedding. “We wanted warm and feminine colors including blush, white, cream, and gold, and a lot of various shades of pinks, blush, and reds.”

Rudy Giuliani’s Story Reimagined as an Opera in ‘Rudy! A Documusical’ at Tribeca Festival

A new documentary about Rudy Giuliani premiering at the Tribeca Festival weaves in musical performances to give the ups and downs of the man once commonly referred to as “America’s Mayor” an operatic flavor.

Rudy! A Documusical, directed by Jed Rothstein, is in large part a sober, conventional analysis of the unlikely trajectory of Giuliani’s political life, from New York prosecutor, mayor and Sept. 11 hero to the pusher of bogus legal challenges to the 2020 election for then-President Donald Trump. But to fully convey the exaggerated highs and lows of Giuliani, Rothstein felt he needed a Greek chorus.

“His story is very operatic,” Rothstein said in an interview. “The music can bring out emotional truths that’s different than having someone talk about it. It’s certainly unconventional in a documentary, but it brings out its own truth. I wanted to have a film that captured the craziness of his arc.”

Rothstein initially considered crafting interludes of opera for his film — Giuliani is a noted opera fan — but quickly realized the demands of mounting even an interstitial opera were too much. He instead turned to Broadway musicians and performers to write and stage the musical numbers.

Rudy! A Documusical, which is seeking distribution at Tribeca, is the most significant documentary yet to attempt to reconcile one of the more confounding American politicians — once Time magazine’s person of the year — of the last 30 years. The film arrives at Tribeca — a film festival that was partly born out of Sept. 11 — just as the House committee investigation into the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol is unspooling. Giuliani, whose law license was suspended for lying about the 2020 election, recently met for hours with the House committee.

Giuliani didn’t participate in the documentary, though Rothstein says he made many attempts to convince him to sit for an interview. Rudy! instead features interviews with former New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton; Al Sharpton; journalist Andrew Kirtzman, author of Rudy Giuliani: Emperor of the City and Giuliani’s press secretary in his first successful mayoral run, Ken Frydman. It also includes a forensic psychiatrist to help explain some of the actions around the Capitol riot.

To Rothstein, a longtime New Yorker whose films include WeWork: Or The Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn, Giuliani’s story is partly America’s.

“What motivated him?” Rothstein says. “Why did he take this journey? What does his centrality to our recent history say about all of us?”

Some of the film’s most vivid parts survey Giuliani’s mayoral campaign against David Dinkins, running on a law-and-order platform that exploited racial dynamics. The film isn’t entirely critical of Giuliani. Sifting through 9/11 footage only made Rothstein more impressed with his leadership at the time.

“He’s a person who was always concerned with morals,” says Rothstein. “As he says, his father told him to look in the mirror when he shaves in the morning and be able to see himself with pride. And I wonder how he feels about that now.”
