Melissa Copelton became a writer because Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City made it look easy. Turns out, Carrie was *very* wrong, but Melissa made it happen, nevertheless. As a senior staff writer for Life & Style, it’s no surprise that some of Melissa’s personal areas of interest include celebrity couples, celebrity kids and celebrity fashionistas. Scott Disick, Sofia Richie, Stormi Webster and Bella Hadid are her favorites in the aforementioned categories — and no, you aren’t going to change her opinion on that, but you can try.
Work or writing background leading to expertise
Melissa’s position with Life & Style began in March 2018. While she generally focuses on daily celebrity news stories, she also dabbles in creative, evergreen galleries — best fashion moments and celebrity transformations are her current bread and butter.
To date, her favorite A-list “interaction” is the time Kanye West found out Drake followed Kim Kardashian on Instagram from one of her articles, “Drake Seemingly Addresses the Rumors That He Slept With Kim Kardashian in the Sneakiest Way Ever.” He later deleted the tweet, but she plans on riding that career high for as long as she can.
Melissa was a psychology and creative writing major at Marymount Manhattan College in NYC. She graduated with honors in 2014.
Prior to landing a full-time gig, Melissa freelanced for a number of digital media publications including Elite Daily, YourTango and BroBible.
