Gawker is shutting down. Again.
Bustle Digital Group is shutting down Gawker after relaunching the site in 2021. “Well, after an incredible 1.5 years, BDG has decided it is done with Gawker 2.0,” Leah Finnegan, Gawker EIC, tweeted today. “Can’t say enough about how proud I am of the site and all the brilliant people who worked to create it, and what a staggering shame this is. I had an absolute blast, and I love you.” A BDG spokesperson confirmed to Variety the company is suspending operations.
Tom Brady announces retirement (for real this time!)
After a 20-year career with the Patriots and a three-year run with the Buccaneers (ICYMI: those are football teams!), Tom Brady is finally retiring. The 46-year-old posted an emotional farewell video on Twitter this morning to confirm he’s giving up the game “for good.” Gisele’s ex also made a red carpet appearance last night in Los Angeles at the premiere of 80 for Brady, starring Jane Fonda, Sally Field, Rita Moreno, and Lily Tomlin. The film follows four best friends who embark on a trip to see their hero, Tom Brady, play in the 2017 Super Bowl. The comedy is based on a true story.
