Saoirse Ronan, Tina Fey, and Ryan Reynolds... 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.

Gigi Hadid

Gigi didn’t have the best week, now to be fair. The model appeared on the cover of Italian Vogue, photographed by Steven Klein.

The cover immediately caused controversy, mainly because it looks absolutely nothing like her. There have also been accusations of racism because Gigi’s face obviously appears much darker than her natural skin colour.

Gigi has since apologised, and noted that the final creative decision had absolutely nothing to do with her. Poor Gigi.

Katy Perry 

Katy Perry can’t exactly catch a break this week either.

The singer and American Idol host was brought up by two evangelical pastor parents, so we imagine they haven’t exactly approved of 99 percent of her lifestyle. Her mother Mary Hudson has now written a book to help parents who believe their kids have ‘demonic influences’.

Eh, you’d hardly feel too happy about that now? Hard not to take it personally.


Saoirse Ronan

Saoirse Ronan is a winner this week because she went to a Magic Mike show in Vegas and didn’t care who knew.

That’s it.

NB: If anyone would like to pointlessly ask me for a photo of a half naked woman for ‘equality’ reasons, the comments are open.

Tina Fey

Tina Fey has come out and apologised for her SNL Charlottesville sketch. Well, she at least wishes she could change it.

The comedian appeared on David Letterman’s Netflix show and admitted that she wishes they could have conveyed the message a bit better.

Tina took part in the controversial ‘sheetcaking’ sketch which mocked the Charlottesville white nationalist rally on SNL, with many columnists arguing that Fey was suggesting that people shouldn’t act after the violence in the city.

The sketch showed Fey eating an entire cake instead of standing up to the white supremacists marching. Fey told Letterman that she wrote the sketch on a plane, but said now that she still thinks of everything that was wrong with it. Her musings are actually an interesting watch, and kudos to her for speaking out about it and not making excuses.

Ryan Reynolds

Ryan is a winner this week for speaking openly about his anxiety issues.

The Deadpool actor admitted that he uses his humour to cover up. Given how little anxiety is spoken about, it’s pretty cool for someone who you would never admitting having an anxiety problem coming out and speaking about it.

Last week’s winners and losers: Vogue Williams, Cillian Murphy, and of course, Kanye>
