MODUS VIVENDI: The underwear brand launches its PRISMA Daily Senses campaign with a bang(able model)! If you're a first-time patron of MV, if you use the code BC15 at checkout, you supposedly get 15% off. (I don't benefit in any way.)
NYT: Lukas Gage on addressing his sexual orientation:
If they want to think that, they can. I’m a pretty open book about most things in my life, but I have a problem with the culture of everyone needing to know everybody’s business and nothing can be sacred. It’s a weird line that I’m still trying to figure out.
DAILY BEAST: Janet Yellen confirms no government bailout for Silicon Valley Bank. Or maybe not?!

SOCIALITE LIFE: His name is Sergio Bex, which even sounds like an Insta-hottie name, no?
EW.COM: Glenn Close can not win when it comes to the Oscars — she has tested positive for COVID-19, so is bowing out of presenting.
EXTRATV: After confirming she wouldn't be at the Oscars, Gaga WILL be performing her nominated song. Will it top this?:
DEADLINE: And yet, Tom Cruise is skipping the Oscars?!
PITCHFORK: Pitchfork has a hate/hate take on Madonna, but a revisitation of her Music led to a rare 8.0 score for her. It is — for me — a kind of messy album with great pieces, but this song is one of my favorites by her. (This is the tour version.)
SNL: George Santos crashes the Oscars as Tom Cruise:
INSTAGRAM (FOLLOWS APPRECIATED): Liza Minnelli has made it to 77! Happy birthday to the enduring and endearing icon. I told this story before, but my memory of her is when I was an assistant to a literary agent in Chicago in 1990, my boss had tons of celeb names on her Rolodex, and one of them — because she'd agented Vincente Minnelli's book — was Liza Minnelli's (estranged) stepmom. It was the house that would later become a bone of contention between Liza and Lee. But I sent Liza a Valentine's Day card and some tear sheets from her then-recent U.K. Vogue spread to sign — and she did! At the time, I think I envisioned her stepmom tersely handing them to her, Liza signing and running to the post office. In reality, I assume several middlemen were involved!
