Andrew Cuomo rivals in political arena in 2022 races

For the first time in 24 years, Andrew Cuomo’s name will not be on the Democratic primary ballot for a statewide office this year. (He withdrew from the governor’s race in 2002 a week before the primary). The deadline for filing petitions as a third-party candidate in a general election also came and went on May 31 without any action from the former governor. While Cuomo is out of the game this time around, his former rivals who challenged him for the state’s chief executive role remain in the political arena in various forms.

As I’ve grown older, of course, my love for all things princesses has slightly subsided.However, it seems that our interest in all things Meghan Markle and the royal family—and I could never leave out the Bridgerton effect—has reignited many of our desires to add...

Taylor Swift received an honorary doctorate of fine arts from New York University on Wednesday and delivered the commencement address at the 2022 graduation ceremony at Yankee Stadium.In her speech, the 11-time Grammy winner joked, "I'm 90% sure that the reason I'm here is because I have a song called '22,'" and shared that she "never got to have a normal college experience," citing the fact that she only went to public high school until 10th grade so she could pursue her music career.Swift also poked fun at herself, saying, "I'd like to thank NYU for making me technically, on paper at least, a doctor.
