Gaga shared her excitement over the win on Twitter.

“I’m not gonna be able to wear any makeup tonight. We just won our first of Grammy nominations for the night. I’m in tears with honor and gratitude.

“Shallow” was up against fellow Oscar hopeful “All the Stars” from Black Panther, “Mystery of Love” from Call Me By Your Name, “Remember Me” from Coco and last year’s Oscar winner “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman.

Gaga was nominated for five awards at the 2019 Grammys; in addition to winning best song written for visual media, she also took home the best pop solo performance award — for “Joanne (Where Do You Think You’re Goin’?)” — before the telecast started.

Bolstered by Gaga’s booming vocals and Cooper’s crooning intro, “Shallow” was an immediate hit when it first came out ahead of the movie’s October release. It went on to win a Golden Globe at this year’s show and is the favorite heading into the Oscars on Feb. 24.

Earlier in the evening, “Shallow” also won the U.K.’s BAFTA award for best original music.

“I can’t believe we just won Best Original Music @BAFTA ‘s . I wish so much I was there but am at the Grammy’s to show them our love as well. We made a film about music. This means the world to me. Thank u to all our fans we love u so much, we wouldn’t be here without u,” Gaga tweeted.

The 20-year-old daughter of Christie Brinkley took to Snapchat to show her fans what she looks like at the beach.

The star has been modeling for the past three years but was only pushed to stardom in 2018 when she posed for Sports Illustrated magazine.

Impossible to not know who she is: She had on a gold necklace that said Sailor

She was last seen during a racy swimwear shoot in Sydney on Sunday.

Sailor, who is Christie’s daughter with architect Peter Cook, showed off her endless pins as she withered about on the sand in photos and video footage she posted on Instagram. 

On the day she wore her signature blonde hair out and minimal makeup. 

Showing that modelling is in the genes, Sailor shot the camera a number of sultry expressions, reminiscent of her ageless mother.

Sailor really appears to be enjoying her time in Sydney and recently wrote: ‘Greetings from Aus! 

‘Where I can work in a bustling city then take a 10 minute Uber [ride] to the most beautiful beach for a dip,’ she wrote on Instagram on January 8.

‘Three days into living here and I f***ing love it.’   

In March last year, Sailor admitted that growing up in her mother Christie’s shadow wasn’t always easy. 

She previously told the Mail: ‘I’ve never brought it upon myself that I have to be like her… that’s not possible. She’s had a career for 50 years.

‘I’m just trying to live my life. I want people to realise I have my own things going for me.’

FabFitFun gets a whopping $80M to dominate the subscription box economy

FabFitFun gets a whopping $80M to dominate the subscription box economy

Today, the Los Angeles-based subscription box company FabFitFun said it has landed a whopping $80 million in Series A funding led by Kleiner Perkins. The brand is known for its quarterly box of lifestyle products, ranging from makeup to fitness tools, that costs $49.99, which customers can customize. FabFitFun launched in 2010, and had only taken $6.5 million in capital until this point. This large amount of investment signals the brand’s ambitions to be a dominant force in the subscription economy, and also expand beyond the box to become a content platform.

Over the last four years, I’ve carefully tracked the rise and fall of the subscription box phenomenon. Birchbox, which launched in 2014, helped popularize the idea with a fun new way to discover new beauty products with monthly boxes of samples. This prompted dozens of other companies to launch similar boxes that contained everything from pet toys to sexual wellness products. But it’s not easy to successfully monetize a subscription business. Many companies struggled to generate revenue.

The subscription companies that have done well have effectively become content companies. Beauty discovery brand Ipsy, for instance, relies on an army of social media influencers to keep customers plugged into the brand. For its part, FabFitFun has a lifestyle magazine that goes in every box, a live-stream video channel that runs on Facebook every day, and a forum for members to connect. All of this has helped it grow to more than 1 million members. With this new influx of cash, FabFitFun will be poised to vastly increase this customer base.

Birmingham ground to a halt yesterday as thousands of screaming fans flocked to catch a glimpse of an American YouTube star. 

Vlogger James Charles made a 30-second appearance inside Birmingham’s Bullring shopping centre causing chaos as screaming fans blocked the floors.

Motorists were forced to ditch their cars and the city was gridlocked for hours as frenzied teenagers rushed to see the Instagram personality. 

Worried bosses were even forced to call in extra police and turn off the escalators over fears fans would be crushed as the centre reached full capacity.  

Thousands of teenagers flocked to the Bullring shopping centre in Birmingham to catch a glimpse of American blogger James Charles 

And shoppers were forced to abandon their trips while the city’s bus system was brought to a standstill up as thousands queued to meet the makeup guru. 

The 19-year-old was in the city to cut the ribbon for the grand opening of Morphe Cosmetics, previously only available in London.   

Mr Charles rose to fame online doing makeup tutorials in 2015 and has since gathered a following of 12 million YouTube subscribers and 13 million Instagram followers. 

This is his first time in the UK, and he only plans to make the one public appearance to open Morphe at the Bullring. 

Mr Charles said: ‘I’m so beyond excited to be travelling to the UK for my first time ever. 

‘It’s going to be such an amazing time and let’s make this meet and greet the biggest we’ve ever done.’ 

The Instagram personality made a 30-second appearance inside Birmingham’s Bullring shopping centre – which sent a packed crowd into screaming overdrive

Who is James Charles?

James Charles is a 19-year-old male beauty blogger from New York, USA.

He started doing make-up tutorials in 2015 but rose to prominence in October 2016 when he became the first ever male face of beauty brand Cover Girl.

His social media following grew further after doing a Halloween make-up video with Kylie Jenner. 

He has 25million views on YouTube and millions of followers on Twitter and Instagram, where he describes himself as ‘a 19 year old kid with a few blending brushes’.

‘But there are so many kids here you can barely see a thing, he’s very clever only doing one event and attracting this kind of crowd. 

‘I think this is what they call hysteria.’ 

James Pattison, 18, went to the Bullring with girlfriend Amy in the hope of getting a glimpse of Charles. 

James said: ‘Loads of the girls from our school are obsessed with him, she watches all his YouTube videos. 

‘We didn’t think it would be this busy but it’s absolutely crazy. 

‘We were here early and there was only like four security guards I don’t how they thought they could cope.’ 

Mr Charles announced his arrival in the UK with a social media post in front of a red London telephone box. 

Bullring and West Midlands Police have not not responded to requests for a comment regarding the number of police officers who were present at the event.
