Orlando Bloom proposed to Katy Perry on Valentine’s Day, which is a very Orlando Bloom-y thing to do.

-This is a really good interview with Meg Ryan, in which she talks about burning out and the pressures of being America’s sweetheart. I love her metaphor for fame: “Ever get in a car — maybe it’s a superexpensive car — and the inside’s lovely, you can’t complain about it, but you can’t hear anything outside, because there’s so much metal? There’s so much between you and everything else. You’re at a disadvantage as a young, famous person because you don’t know who’s telling you the truth.”

-There was a very, very disturbing tweet from a Chicago news reporter last night that suggested Jussie Smollett may have staged his racist attack because he was worried he was be written out Empire. Fox Entertainment immediately denied that possibility and stood by the actor, and Empire producer Danny Strong tweeted that there was “0% truth he was being written off,” and police say there is no evidence that it was staged. Meanwhile, two suspects have been arrested.

-Whenever I see video from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s house, I get so confused. How is she calling this their living room? Where is their furniture? It’s just a big, cavernous white space. Do they have a whole wing that they devote just to IG videos?

Terry Crews talked about what it’s like to be the leading male voice in the #MeToo movement: “It feels scary, there’s no other way to really describe. I’ve had a lot of men who are very, very angry. They’re angry at me because I’ve changed the narrative. The only way I can describe it is that there’s a movie that everybody’s playing in their head and the movie doesn’t end up the way they want it.”

-I’m in love with every single thing we’re hearing about Amazon’s Good Omens series, which will premiere on May 31.

-Showtime’s new comedy series Desus & Mero is getting crazy buzz that’s to glowing early reviews, a stellar writing team, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as their first guest.

-After heavy-hitting celebs like Brad Pitt, Alfonso Cuaron and George Clooney blasted the Oscars for planning to hand out Best Editing and Best Cinematography during commercial breaks, the Academy is now saying we all misunderstood. Uh huh.

Chris Brown Denies Rape Allegations

Chris Brown has been released from custody in Paris with no charges after being detained after a 24-year-old woman accused him of raping her in his hotel room last week. He denied the allegations in an Instagram post. The Paris prosecutor’s office said the investigation is ongoing.

-According to People, Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron met six months ago on a commercial shoot and haven’t seen each other since. We knew that was too good to be true.

-Ooh boy. Taraji P Henson posted an IG story that implied she’s mad there are hashtags about muting R Kelly but none about muting Harvey Weinstein. But the “mute” thing trended because Kelly’s a musician. And Weinstein’s already being “muted” cause he is on trial, no?

-In terms of Oscar noms, it was a great morning for Black Panther, Roma and The Favourite, but not so great for Crazy Rich Asians and If Beale Street Could Talk. Bradley Cooper should be happy for his acting nod, but you just know that he’s burning about being snubbed in the Best Director category. Check out more Oscar snubs and surprises.

-I’m surprised it took so long for these questions to start coming, but Rami Malek was asked whether he has any “regrets” about working with Bryan Singer on Bohemian Rhapsody. “I think that the allegations and things were, believe it or not, honestly something I was not aware of, and that is what it is.” Hmmmmm….

-Also, did Esquire’s big exposé on Singer get squashed? Now the Bohemian Rhapsody is up for Best Picture, this would be the time to print it. If it doesn’t get publishing in the next couple of weeks, I’m guessing it was blocked.

Anna Wintour shared her thoughts on Meghan Markle’s Givenchy wedding gown , saying it was “sophisticated, it was chic, it was grown up.

Azealia Banks called Grimes a ‘brittleboned methhead’ who smells ‘like a roll of nickels’. But how do you *really* feel?

Tessa Thompson attended the Chanel show at Paris Haute Couture Week SS19 with a purse necklace. Oh god, I just got used to fanny packs!

-Russian Doll is the next Netflix show that every critic I follow is loving. It stars Natasha Lyonne as a woman stuck in a Groundhog Day/Happy Death Day loop, and it premieres next Friday.

Sarah Jesscia Parker recreated the Sex and the City opener for a charity campaign.

-Meanwhile, everyone needs to slow their roll when it comes to jumping on Ben about that “on-screen gay kiss” quote. First of all, it’s not even a direct quote; it’s a story that Kevin Smith told. Secondly, the story was from 20 years ago. Unclench, people.
