Holly Carpenter, Kendrick Lamar, and Camila Cabello... it's our celeb winners and losers of the week

Some will win, some will lose.

DailyEdge praises those who rocked the week in celebland, while keeping a watchful eye on those who should just log off forever.

Camila Cabello 

Camila Cabello is a loser this week for doing something we all did as kids.

So you know how Ariana Grande is famous for her long, tight pony tail? Camilla tried to copy it for the VMAs and ended up with a banging headache.

As someone who went to a primary school in Ireland during a nit outbreak, I can identify the relief of taking out a bobbin that has been pulling at your head all day. We’ll ignore the fact that Camila won loads of VMAs and focus on this. 

Thank u, next. 

John Mayer 

John Mayer is a loser this week for kinda getting slammed down by Halsey.

John has been trying to slide into the singer’s DMs for a while now, but she has come out to say firmly that she’s not into it, or here for the rumours that they’re dating. 

I wouldn’t want rumours that I was dating John Mayer either.

Here’s a few examples of his Instagram comments.



Of course, the pair have been conversing since last year, but if I know John Mayer, I feel he won’t be too happy with Halsey’s latest statement on the whole thing. 

Well, that’s that.  


Emma Stone 

Emma Stone is generally a brilliant chatshow guest, but she really knocked it out of the park with her latest revelation.

Her real name isn’t Emma.

Sure, you knew that. Emily Stone changed her name. But her reason is brilliant, and very timely.

It’s all because she wanted to be Baby Spice, aka Emma Bunton. Watch her explain to Jimmy Fallon here.

As good a reason as any. How annoyed were you when you found out you couldn’t pick Rihanna for your confirmation name? 

Kendrick Lamar 

Kendrick Lamar is a winner this week for showing up to Irish boxer Aaron McKenna’s fight in California.

The rapper took a quick pic with Monaghan’s McKenna in his dressing room pre-fight, after meeting him at a gym. Turns out, Kendrick backed the right side, with McKenna winning by a landslide. 

Holly Carpenter

Holly gets a win this week for a response she wrote to someone who made fun of her for describing herself as a ‘brand owner’.

I’ll let her take the floor here.

Now you know hun 💅🏼 I pick a ‘Tweet of the week’ in my Herald column and this week I thought I’d use a snarky remark I found on Twitter after my appearance on Prime Time (the voiceover on the show referred to me as brand owner and former Miss Ireland) - I’ve worked my ass off with @love__lift for almost two years now and although it’s still a new company I’m really proud of it ❤️ when I was modeling I had very little control over what jobs I got to do and although I wouldn’t change a thing, I definitely found it tough at times not having any creative control ✨ coming from a background in modeling & beauty pageants I feel like I have had to prove myself a lot when it came to launching a business. I’ve seen comments like “she probably just rocks up to the shoot and has nothing to do with what goes on” and although that PISSES me off at times all that matters is that I know my worth, I know what I bring to the table and I believe in me. A lot of the girls I modeled with over the years have gone on to build successful brands, create blogs, launch products, write books and I think Irish women are absolutely slaying 👊🏼 let the people who don’t believe in you be your motivation - prove them wrong 🌟 #Rant #TGIF #PositiveVibes #SelfBelief
