February 14 sure is a great day to be hot, famous, and in love — ideally with someone who is also hot and famous. Also, rich! Nowhere is this more clear than on Instagram right now, with celebrities are gathering in full force to celebrate their relationships.
Some celebs went subtle today, while others went performative. Miley Cyrus is excited to have sex with her new husband Liam Hemsworth, Lily Reinhart and Cole Sprouse are as tangled up in their Riverdale romance as ever, and Kanye West literally hired Kenny G to perform for Kim Kardashian, trapping him in an aesthetic prison of roses in chic glass vases. Kylie and Travis also stuck to an expensive floral theme.
Our favorite famous declarations of love, below.
Kim and Kanye
Memey saxophonist Kenny G received what I hope was a hefty paycheck from Kanye West to serenade Kim, surrounded by roses. It would be great to get some more info on the logistics: did Kenny enter an empty loungeroom and wait around with his sax while interns slowly imprisoned him? Or did he tip toe Mission Impossible-style around each obstacle until reaching the center? Either way, it's an impressive social media stunt from a couple known for their impressive social media stunts.
The possibly engaged Kylie and Travis recently celebrated Stormi's first birthday with a festival-style pop up experience that included a giant balloon in the shape of their daughter's head. So actually this tunnel of roses is kind of low key for them.
You can just tell they're at some Illuminati beach resort, but Gwyneth's sun-kissed half smile is still cute and oddly soothing to look at. She and Brad got married last year — they hired a celebrated war photographer to shoot the chic upstate New York wedding!
THESE TWO. Miley and Liam were all over Valentine's Day, with Miley kicking off the celebrations by tagging her husband in a horny meme. She also posted a series of lovely never-before-seen photos from their recent secret wedding.
Minimalist caption, unsmiling selfie! These two should try harder, right? Jk. They're coming up on the one-year anniversary of their City Hall wedding, hence the caption. Read PAPER's cover story with Emrata here.
