This weekend, we delve into the world of celebrity via the Cameo app. What does it mean that we can now pay celebrities to send us personalized video greetings? And how has our interaction with famous people shifted over the last decade? Lilah talks to gaming critic Tom Faber about the ethics and absurdities of fame in 2022. Then, interior design columnist Luke Edward Hall gives us his top tips on making your home really feel like yours.
