It seems to be un-cuffing season. Between Kim K and Skete, Leo and Camila Morrone, Flo Pugh and Zach Braff, and EmRata and her cheating husband… all of Hollywood is single and ready to mingle.

But what’s truly shaken us to our core is the impending split of NFL GOAT, Tom Brady, and model, Gisele Bundchen. Page Six reported that Tom and Gisele are currently in the middle of an “epic fight” about his decision to un-retire from the NFL.

Did I not warn everyone below that this was happening? Was anyone listening? Yesterday, Page Six reported that Leonardo DiCaprio saw that chart and decided to skew the data by dating 27 year old Gigi Hadid.

The reports began flooding in yesterday morning that the two were "spending time together" during New York Fashion Week...and then later that day they were officially a couple. What I see here is that Zayn Malik is now single.

Gigi Hadid, the coolest supermodel ever, dating Leonardo DiCaprio just mere seconds after he broke up with Camila. It's all a bit too much for me. I don't know how to feel but I'm still convinced Leo is up to no good.

Before Its Time: 1996's "Romeo + Juliet"

Baz Luhrmann's 1996 Romeo + Juliet is an ecstasy-infused, colorful retelling of the star-crossed lovers' tale that takes a 425-year-old story and strangely reflects society in 2021.

Pandemics are known for triggering upheaval and societal change.

It's probably no coincidence, then, that Shakespeare penned Romeo and Juliet around 1595—directly in the middle of the deadly Bubonic plague pandemic that ravaged Europe. Amidst today's pandemic, the most relevant adaptation of this timeless and classic tragedy was made 25 years ago.

Baz Luhrmann's 1996 Romeo + Juliet is an ecstasy-infused, colorful retelling of the star-crossed lovers' tale. Romeo + Juliet made a decent ranking at the box office, but it was heavily overlooked for awards, only receiving one Oscar nomination for best art direction.

Had Luhrmann waited just 10 years to release Romeo + Juliet, there may have been more positive reactions to the film. At one point, Baz himself doubted that the movie would ever be made. During a 2015 interview discussing the film, Baz said: "When we went to Twentieth Century-Fox with it, under the terms of my first-look deal, I think rather than let me go, they sort of said, 'We'll give him $100,000, let him do his little workshop and maybe it'll go away.' Well it did not."

Romeo + Juliet takes a 425-year-old story and strangely reflects society in 2021. Here's why:
