- TIME Magazine decided to place a mom breastfeeding her three-year-old son on its cover to illustrate its story on “attachment parenting.” Meanwhile, showing Kris Jenner and her Kardashian klan would’ve had the same (nauseating) effect. [Huff Po]

- The Olympics really takes the lighting of the Olympic torch super serial. So serial in fact, there were men wearing pleated skirts. [Styleite]

- This is Tom Cruise — and his Photoshopped abs — posing with models Abbey Lee Kershaw and Edita Vilkeviciute on the June cover of W Magazine. Aside from making everyone uncomfortable, Suri‘s dad is promoting his new film, Rock of Ages. [Fashion Gone Rogue]

Tom Cruise Rocks W Magazine, Justin Biebers Getting His High School Diploma and Anna Wintours Date Night with Stephen Colbert

- Rihanna has unfollowed Chris Brown on Twitter — so you know it’s serious this time — after he allegedly dissed her on the remix to Kanye West‘s “TheraFlu” “Way Too Cold.” I guess claiming that “every industry n*gga done had her” was the straw that broke the camel’s jaw. Again. [TMZ]

- Take a gander at Francisco Costa‘s Calvin Klein capsule collection for Macy’s. [ELLE]

- Justin Bieber is a high school graduate! But don’t expect any collegiate keg stands from this guy, since he’s not really a fan of  ”writing and reading” and all “that stuff.” [People]

- “Tan Mom” Patricia Krentcil has been banned from eight New Jersey tanning salons, though that’s not how Pat tells it. “I haven’t tanned since all this happened. I’m not banned from anything. I didn’t go. I don’t need to go.” So you can take your tanning salons and shove it where the sun don’t shine — which will be nowhere near Pat Krentcil. [NYDN]

- Anna Wintour visited Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report to promote the “Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations” exhibit, and along the way made a date with Colbert to dip her bob into some battered shrimp at Long John Silver’s. [The Cut]

I was center square from 1969 to 1978, during which I perfected the art of the zing as well as a crippling cocaine addiction. Bea Arthur was responsible for both. @LesFabian lester dot brathwaite at gmail
