Leo and RiRi's French Rendezvous
We love Leonardo DiCaprio for his golden boy looks and killer acting chops, but his dating record? Not so much.

Starbucks and music have been simpatico since the beginning (remember those iTunes Pick of the Week cards?), and now Spotify is getting in on the action by partnering with the coffee giant. Via the Starbucks app, customers can order drinks and see what's playing in-store in real time, discovering and saving new music to their own Spotify accounts. Available on both Android and Apple, the app also lets users share feedback on Starbucks' playlists. [Refinery 29]

Riccardo Tisci Teases Second Nike Collab
Is Sly Stalone Riccardo Tisci's latest muse? A cryptic Instagram post would indicate yes.
