win or lose

Emma Watson, Brian Gleeson, and er, Bono... 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.

Bono is a loser this week for two very specific reasons. He can’t work things, and he likes Adam Sandler movies.

Adam appeared on Jimmy Kimmel and told the story about how Bono requested a preview of his new Netflix special in advance of its release. The only problem was, he couldn’t get the thing to work. Bono, seriously, you don’t have people who do these things for you?

I’m not one to speculate but Sam Bird is pretty pissed off with Georgia Steel, his ex-Love Island flame. 

The couple announced their split last week, and Sam has allegedly been threatening Georgia with selling stories to the press. Right, clown, but why? He claims she had cheated on him with her ex-boyfriend, so he claims. Georgia says she just stayed in his box room after a heart to heart.  

Not loyal babes. Also, Sam can do one too. 



Rihanna is a winner every week, it almost seems bad to put her in this at all. But she’s especially a winner this week after we heard the news that she refused to play the Super Bowl half time show 2019 in support of Colin Kaepernick. The Quarterback was famously the first NFL player to take a knee during the national anthem.

I mean, I’m devo we don’t get a Rihanna Super Bowl half time show AND even more so that we have to have Maroon 5 inflicted on us, but well done Ri Ri. 

Emma Watson

Allies, gotta love em. Emma Watson made a small but hugely weighted gesture on Twitter by posting a photo of herself wearing a t shirt supporting trans rights. 

It’s extremely timely, as UK activists are currently urging people to fill out a government-led consultation to reform the Gender Recognition Act 2004, so fans were thankful for the support. 

YES, people. 

Brian Gleeson 

Brian Gleeson announced this week that he’s joining the cast of Peaky Blinders. What a scoop for the Gleeson bro. He’ll be joining Cillian Murphy as he wears tweed and flat caps.

Brian said he can’t wait to kick around “in the mud of Northern England with an exceptional cast and crew”. 

Sounds v glam.
