The actor playing Prince Charles in 'The Crown' says the royal is 'a guy waiting for his mother to die for his life to have meaning'
Karwai Tang/WireImage/Wikipedia Josh O'Connor who plays Prince Charles in Netflix's "The Crown" said the future king is "waiting for his mother to die for his life to have meaning." Josh O'Connor is the first actor to play the next in line to the throne as an adult for the third season of the series. He told British GQ that Prince Charles has been living his life "in purgatory." "Waiting for your parent to die is pretty messed up. That the one person who should be unconditional is the person that holds the power for you to have any meaning in your life … it's quite nice to play that. They're huge stakes," he said.

You can now book a flight on United's new 'Star Wars'-themed Boeing 737 plane — here's what it's like inside
United United has launched a special new "Star Wars"-themed Boeing 737-800 plane. The plane was launched to celebrate the upcoming release of "The Rise of Skywalker." Decked out in dueling Resistance and First Order livery, the plane is currently flying across the US, Canada, Central America, and the Caribbean. Passengers can book a flight by looking up the aircraft's tail number, N36272. United also has a whole webpage dedicated to the plane and its "Star Wars" promotions. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Luke Skywalker may have claimed the Millennium Falcon was a "piece of junk" when he first saw it (despite the fact it could, you know, make point-five past lightspeed) — but he probably wouldn't be saying that about United Airlines' shiny new Boeing 737-800. To celebrate the December release of "The Rise of Skywalker" in cinemas (billed as the last film in the nine-film Skywalker saga, of course), the airline has launched a special "Star Wars"-themed plane — and though it can't travel at lightspeed, it does look pretty spiffy, or at least nothing at all like the heavily-modified ship of a certain scruffy-looking nerf herder (sorry, Han Solo). The plane made its first flight earlier this month, from Houston to Orlando. Although there were plenty of evil First Order stormtroopers on hand, thankfully no-one was taken away for questioning by Kylo Ren. Here's what the plane is like inside.The Force — er, flight — is strong with the Boeing 737-800's galactic-themed livery, which revels in the power of the Dark Side on one side... United ...

Go read this interview with the Big Tech’s greatest European foe
Photo by Henrique Casinhas/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images The New York Times has just published a lengthy interview with Margrethe Vestager, the head of the EU’s antitrust division. Over the past five years, Vestager’s team has been behind some of the biggest fines doled out to US tech companies, thanks to the EU being one of the few authorities with the political clout to stand up to the likes of Apple (fined $14.5 billion for dodging taxes) and Google ($9 billion over a series of antitrust violations). Now, Vestager is embarking on a second five year term, where she’ll have even more power over the trading bloc’s digital policy. Unsurprisingly, Vestager’s relentless pursuit of Silicon Valley’s tech giants has ruffled some feathers, not least the President of the United States. “She hates the... Continue reading…

Eric Cantona: ‘Big democracies are, in a way, dictatorships’
Former Manchester United striker on ‘economic terrorism’, a suitcase that shed light on his family and trying to understand himselfFor a man who spoke of seagulls and trawlers after he karate-kicked a fan in April 1995 and quoted King Lear when he collected Uefa’s president’s award almost 25 years later, reciting “as flies to wanton boys, we are for the gods”, there is something in the simplicity of what Eric Cantona says now. He pictures himself standing with his mother and aunt, looking into his grandfather’s eyes, and recalls the moment in the deep, slow voice that’s unmistakably his, accent gently French. “It was something...” he begins to say, pausing to seek the right words. Eventually he settles on “emotional” and then he stops, no flourish needed. “It is the story of my family, mine,” he says.It is some story. In 2007 a suitcase was discovered in Mexico City, where it had been hidden for almost 70 years. Inside they found 126 old rolls of film containing 4,500 negatives; they also found a part of him. Most of the pictures, smuggled out of France when the Nazis arrived, were taken by Robert Capa during the final months of the Spanish civil war. Capa had also been in Argelès-sur-Mer, where 100,000 people fleeing Spain were held in a refugee camp, among them Pedro Raurich, 28, and his 18-year-old girlfriend, Paquita Farnòs.

Politicians could help young people into creative jobs. Here’s how | Martin Bright
If we can link up jobcentres with the creative industries – and boost diversity, then why can’t politicians?Beyond the eye-watering spending pledges, it has been difficult to identify a single genuinely practical policy idea emerging from the major political parties in the election campaign. To be fair, snap elections do not provide the best platform for this kind of detailed work. But it would have been good to see some real thought being put into the future of welfare and work creation. The Institute for Public Policy Research reported this week that Britain now has the lowest level of support for poor people since the creation of the welfare state. The new model of welfare represented by universal credit was intended to further incentivise jobseekers. So where are the big ideas to address the future of work in the mid-21st century, particularly in the former industrial heartlands?

Celebrities Are America’s Newest Drug Dealers
Over the past two decades, Americans have proved willing to do lots of things at Martha Stewart’s behest. They will decoupage. They will make their own holiday wreaths. They will boil pasta and tomatoes in the same pot, at the same time. Perhaps most important for Stewart, they will buy things with her name on them—bedding, cookware, magazines. Soon they might even buy Martha Stewart–branded weed.Stewart is poised to conquer cannabis as the next frontier of domestic comfort. In February, she announced that she had become an adviser to the Canadian cannabis giant Canopy Growth, and now she is developing her own range of products, starting with a line of dog treats made with cannabidiol, or CBD. (Don’t worry, CBD doesn’t get Fido—or people—high; neither Stewart nor Canopy will say yet whether anything in her line will.)Stewart’s announcement landed her among a small but growing group of celebrities who have seen dollar signs in the nascent market for legal weed in North America. Long a product sold primarily by historically disenfranchised young men risking prison sentences, weed is now the province of A-list actors and Super Bowl champions. Drake wants to sell you weed grown locally in his native Toronto. Football stars like Rob Gronkowski and Ricky Williams offer cannabinoid products to ease your aches and pains. As the legal-weed market floods with corporations vying to be the Coca-Cola of cannabis, companies are betting that celebrities might be a shortcut to mainstream success.Perhaps unsurprisingly, Snoop Dogg is responsible for all of this. The legendary rapper began cultivating his association with cannabis long before efforts to decriminalize it gained traction in America, and he’s seen his public persona evolve on a similar arc with weed itself: once a menace to public order and polite society, now considered by many to be harmless and fun at parties. In 2015, Snoop launched his first line of cannabis with the American company LivWell, in Colorado. He called it Leafs by Snoop. HuffPost pretty much summed it up: “This makes sense.”[Read: The art of packaging pot]Snoop also brought Stewart, his good friend and cooking-show co-star, into the game. While Snoop’s American line was in development, he connected with Canopy Growth to see whether he could expand into the Canadian market. Canada federally legalized medical marijuana in 2001, so its market for corporate cannabis is a little more mature than in the U.S., where some state laws ban marijuana while others allow various levels of medicinal or recreational use. Snoop’s team “reached out through just the general ‘Contact us’ form on our website,” Jordan Sinclair, Canopy Growth’s vice president, told me. “We thought it was a hoax at first.” Snoop and Canopy launched the Leafs brand in Canada in 2016 (LivWell and Canopy have since become corporate partners), and then Snoop introduced Canopy’s executives to Stewart.Before Stewart’s announcement in February, the major celebrities who had signed up to start weed brands were mostly the ones you’d expect: Willie Nelson, Tommy Chong, Damian Marley, and several rappers following in Snoop’s footsteps, including Wiz Khalifa and Ghostface Killah. Those celebrities come from subcultures where the penchant for smoke was never controversial. The real money, though, is likely to be made in selling to broader audiences, whose attention is trickier for weed brands to capture. “The industry is fairly strict when it comes to advertising regulations,” Sinclair said. “Promotion is very difficult, and credibility building and brand building are also very difficult.”To make an end run around paid advertising, the weed industry has to find ways to get anxious retailers to carry their products. They need enough novelty to drum up excitement in the press—in other words, they need someone like Martha Stewart. “We didn’t expect the amount of traction that that announcement generated,” Sinclair recalled. “It was as much press and as much reach and as many stories as we generated on the day that cannabis got legalized in Canada, and we were the business that made the first legal sale ever.”The power of celebrities like Stewart isn’t just in their counterintuitive willingness to be associated with weed, but in their position within commerce in general. Stewart “can make one phone call and get a meeting with any major American retailer,” Sinclair said. Without a beloved mainstream name attached, a company might go years before landing in the same store. “We’re essentially borrowing credibility,” Sinclair told me.[Read: Martha Stewart, Queen of All Internet]While most major North American cannabis companies have now implemented similar strategies, Canopy has had the most success with A-list celebrities. In recent months, it has announced Drake’s aforementioned cannabis brand, More Life, as well as a similar collaboration with Seth Rogen. These arrangements aren’t just endorsements, but partnerships, which are generally more lucrative in the long term for celebrities, because they involve control over branding and include profit-sharing instead of just a lump-sum payday.This celebrity strategy is one of the oldest marketing tricks in the book. But it might not make a big difference in companies’ long-term success, says Dina Mayzlin, a marketing professor at the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business. “There’s a big debate about the extent to which any advertising is effective, but at the end of the day, it’s usually more about the product, or the logistics of how you sell,” she says. “I don’t think celebrity endorsements are that powerful.”Mayzlin points to the beginning of internet commerce as a lesson on how a new market goes from a Wild West with many competitors and little name recognition to an intensely consolidated industry. Amazon didn’t come to dominate American retail with slick ads alone. It performed its function with the most ruthless efficiency, which is what shoppers wanted.Still, Mayzlin sees one distinct upside to cannabis’s celebrity strategy: access to massive social-media followings. “In the past, you had to pay the celebrity, but then you also paid for media, like a TV ad,” she says. “Here, you already have the media.” That’s doubly important for cannabis brands, which can’t advertise themselves like a new type of soda can.Even Canopy readily admits that working with celebrities is quite different from developing, advertising, and selling products on its own. Drake is the Toronto Raptors’ official global hype man, and when the team recently made a run at the NBA title, the excitement threw Canopy’s development meetings with him into havoc. “We knew the priority was making sure the basketball thing is taken care of,” Sinclair told me. “If there was a big game and we had a meeting scheduled with Drake and his team the next morning, we were like, ‘Okay, let’s move this to the afternoon.’” Still, the hassle is worth it to let the millions of people who have listened to Drake rap about weed know exactly where to buy their own.

Mandy Moore: ‘There’s much more scrutiny now. You’re seen from all angles’
The actor on sequins, red-carpet disco fun, denim dresses and fast-forwarding her age in This Is UsI don’t tend to overthink what to wear to awards shows, but this felt like a momentous occasion. It was the first time I’d been nominated for an Emmy and I wanted to feel like the very best version of myself. I met with the designer Brandon Maxwell two weeks before the awards. He had just had his spring show and we talked about several ideas. He said: “Let me just make all of them, and you can mix and match.” So on the day I wore one version of this outfit to the ceremony, and then a slightly different version to the afterparty.When I first started out [in my career], social media wasn’t a thing. There’s so much more scrutiny now – you’re going to be seen from all angles at all times. It also means that [clothes] have to stand the test of time because the pictures are going to be out there for ever. Looking back 20 years ago, not all my outfit, hair and makeup choices have held up very well – but I never regret them because I always felt great in the moment. Nowadays, I like to have fun and stretch the creative limits of a red carpet – so one day I might wear a suit, one day a bodycon dress, one day 60s blue eyeshadow and sequins, and look like a disco ball!
