Did Ruby Rose hook up with Demi Lovato?
Plus, The engagements of Dot Marie Jones and (sadly) Naya Rivera.
Out Australian model Ruby Rose posted some comments online hinting that she and X Factor judge Demi Lovato might have had a hook up. Comment craziness obviously followed, and Rose’s original posts got removed. Of course, once it’s on the Internet there’s no going back, and we can still find gems like this: “Think ill take a few days off social media whilst @ddlovato's friends attack me for being a 'scorned ex-lover' get over it!! I liked the hair.” She also said, via Instagram, that she’s probably “the one person demi has slept with that didn't sell naked photos of her.” Oh, snap. [heraldsun]

Also getting hitched…Naya Rivera. The Glee star is engaged to her boyfriend, Big Sean. The couple has been together for about 6 months now, and apparently things are going well (for them).

Halloween is coming up, and if the whole Disney princess thing isn’t up your alley, you'll love the constumes photographer Jaime Moore came up with for a photoshoot on her daughter's fifth birthday. Amazing women like Coco Chanel and Jane Goodall had iconic looks for feministy, confidence-boosting getups, and Jaime Moore says, "My daughter wasn't born into royalty. But she was born into a country where she can now vote, become a doctor, a pilot, an astronaut, or even President if she wants, and that's what REALLY matters." The series of empowering pics end with daughter Emma dressed up as herself, wearing an "Emma for President 2044" pin. [upworthy]
