NEW YORK (AP) — Jared Leto was accompanied at the Met Gala on Monday by his own (fake) head, Katy Perry was a candled chandelier, Lady Gaga used the pink carpet as a runway and a changing station and Tiffany Haddish brought fried chicken in a plastic bag as many of the A-list guests worked the camp theme to the max.Perry appeared concerned her heavy looking headpiece would topple as she smiled and walked precariously up the stairs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, designer Diane Von Furstenberg briefly in her orbit as Lady Liberty. Perry, Bella Hadid dished, "had to be trucked here in a UPS truck."Leto wore a red caftan with jewel loops, cradling his long-haired macabre version of himself, and Tracee Ellis Ross posed inside a gold picture frame attached to the front of her black dress.Regina King, in a copper sequin gown with a large shoulder embellishment, said she wasn't ready to go full camp, so she stuck to high lacquered hair."So, glamour is camp," the Oscar-winner said. … [Read more...] about Katy Perry as chandelier, Lady Gaga in layers at Met Gala

By Deepa Bharath | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: March 3, 2019 at 1:19 pm | UPDATED: March 4, 2019 at 6:48 am A photo of a group of smiling students flashing a Nazi salute while surrounding a swastika formed by red plastic cups posted on social media shocked the Newport Beach community, Jewish leaders and others on Sunday morning. Newport-Mesa Unified School District Superintendent Fred Navarro sent an alert about the photo to district administrators and board members, said school board President Charlene Metoyer, who added that they’ve identified several students in that photo who attend Newport Harbor High School. Students from other high schools in the district also were reportedly at the party, but officials said Sunday that they were still investigating and would not comment further. Metoyer said the incident occurred at an off-campus party that was not authorized by the school. “I was simply devastated to see that,” Metoyer said of the … [Read more...] about Students seen in photo on social media flashing Nazi salute around swastika formed with cups

Elizabeth Warren and Dan Geldon work so closely together that she once described the pair as a “two-man platoon.” A confidant to both, Richard Cordray, said, “I don’t even know how to untangle them.”They share a mission, though not a style. Warren is widely known, Geldon hardly at all. He prefers to stay in the background with his oft-present legal pad, plotting to advance their shared populist agenda, drawing on his finely tuned sense of how she thinks and sees the world.

With her five-city campaign swing on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, as well as the hiring of four staffers who know the state well, the Massachusetts senator appears to be betting she can plant her flag and shape the race before other top candidates are officially in.
