Iggy Azalea unable to walk following complications from back surgery, Elon Musk suspends Kanye from Twitter for swastika post, more news ICYMI
Iggy Azalea was left unable to walk for three weeks after "complications" arose following a "rather mundane surgery" she underwent to repair lingering back issues. The rapper detailed her struggle on Twitter on Nov. 28. "It didn't end up being very mundane because I had complications with my recovery & ended up in bed hooked up to a million machines and in so much pain there are about 3 days I actually just can't remember at all," she said. "I didn't walk except to use the bathroom (a whole other ordeal lol) for 3 weeks & you'd be shocked to know how weak you can get when you don't actually move. It happens really fast." Iggy is now slowly beginning to walk, work out and recover. "It's been very mentally challenging to suddenly not be able to do anything for yourself and have no answers about when you will recover. That was the hardest part but all the Drs have been so happy with how quickly I'm getting better now that I'm back moving & walking," she shared.

SPOILERS for the outcome of Wednesday night's episode of Survivor ahead. When we talk about being able to read the Survivor edit, most of the time we're talking about figuring out whose story is being told in a given season. The fact is, throughout the course of a season, there are many stories that are being told. That season's winner will be the focus of one of those stories, often the most important one. But other stories emerge in smaller, more contained ways. Part of the fun of watching Survivor is trying to tell the short-term stories from the long-game ones. All of which is to say that this week's episode was a story in three parts, and the way it shook out could have a lot to say about how this season is going to end.

She’s a supporting player in this season of The White Lotus, but Valentina (Sabrina Impacciatore) is still part of an artistic dynasty. Let’s call them Mike White’s social misfits.
