Katy Perry’s New Video Will Ruin Your Appetite

Katy Perry‘s video for “Bon Appetit” is super creepy, no?

-Congrats to Miranda Kerr, who just married Evan Spiegel.

-This is an interesting read on how Hollywood is in danger of another major hack like the Sony one. There’s reportedly been at least a half-dozen extortion attempts against Hollywood firms over the past 6 months alone and in each case, the hackers demanded less than $80,000 so the FBI advised victims to just pay the ransom.

-This was a good day for TV news. Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Fresh Off the Boat and Speechless were all renewed.

-This is cute: Busy Philipps fans are sending her money in case her pilot isn’t picked up.

-Speaking of pilots, here’s some trailers for the newest batch debuting in fall.

-The glowing Master of None reviews continue to pour in. I like the point this one made about how, unlike other Netflix shows, Aziz Ansari understands the value of breaking things up into episodes.

Chris Rock talks about how he became Aziz’s mentor. “Aziz approached me. The thing about Aziz is Aziz gets what he wants, man! He goes after it, you know what I mean? My man, just goes for it.”

-Look how happy Joshua Jackson seems. Protect Pacey at all costs!

Emily VanCamp is engaged to her Revenge costar Josh Bowman.

-I liked this article on how internet fandoms are gaming the music industry, using fan accounts on social media are finding new ways to help their favorite artists reach the top of the charts.

-So pretty much all the original cast is leaving Once Upon A Time. Why won’t ABC just let it go?

Adam Pally and Zoe Lister-Jones try some rock therapy in the Band Aid trailer.

Reese Witherspoon heads Home Again and romances a younger man in this new trailer.

Jennifer Lawrence Had A Meltdown on Oscar Night Due To “A Birth Control Confusion”

Jennifer Lawrence says she had a meltdown the night she won an Oscar because she was hormonal because of “a birth control confusion,” her friend’s inability to order the right pizza, and her brother’s attempts to arm-wrestle Matthew McConaughey.  Understandable.

JLaw says her buddy Bradley Cooper‘s butt sweats before his armpits do. Note to self: never be buddies with JLaw.

-Also, Chris Rock criticized Jennifer Lawrence’s gender pay gap remarks. “Black women have the hardest gig in show business. You hear Jennifer Lawrence complaining about getting paid less because she’s a woman — if she was black, she’d really have something to complain about.” Well, he’s not wrong.

-Meanwhile, this is what it’s like for white dudes in Hollywood.

Jerry Seinfeld somehow scored President Obama for his new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The episode is pretty great, as are the behind-the-scenes moments.

Katy Perry and John Mayer are still together? Huh.

Taylor Swift is getting down ‘n dirty in her “Out of The Woods” video, which premieres tonight.

George Clooney and Julia Roberts are teaming up again for a new movie called Money Monster.

-Which famous dude is NOT in St. Barts right now? George Lucas, Leonardo DiCaprio, Stephen Amell, Harry Styles, Prince, Tobey Maguire, Paul McCartney and Robin Thicke are all vacationing there.

George Lucas hated the nostalgic appeal of The Force Awakens, says he sold the franchise rights to “white slavers.”
This is a great response to the the New York Post writer who thinks Carrie Fisher should be grateful to Disney for telling her to lose weight.

Mariah Carey was spotted sporting a huge diamond ring, sparking engagement rumours.

-As I mentioned in our Worst TV of 2015 roundup, I hate that I keep getting sucked back into The Walking Dead, only to be disappointed. I’m making a clean break. This preview does nothing for me, so that helps. Of course, when Jeffrey Dean Morgan‘s first episode airs, all bets may be off. I’m only human!

-Today’s NY Daily News cover on Bill Cosby is awesome.

-I’m not a huge Carrie Underwood fan, but her carpool karaoke segment with James Corden was kind of great.

-I’m pleasantly surprised that the first two episodes critics have seen of Legends Of Tomorrow are getting rave reviews. It’s being compared to The Avengers (but with more sadness), and described as the best DC pilot yet.

Rebel Wilson and Mark Strong star get their spy on in The Brothers Grimsby trailer.

Mindy Kaling Discusses Her “Weird As Hell” Relationship with BJ Novak

mindy-kaling-instyle

Mindy Kaling looks lovely on the cover of InStyle, in which she talks about her relationship with BJ Novak (“romantically charged camaraderie with loud arguments”) and why she wants kids but maybe not marriage.

Miles Teller rescued a pregnant woman from a rip tide because his heroics extend way beyond making Shailene Woodley seem tolerable.

Anna Kendrick dropped some f-bombs on the Pitch Perfect 2 red carpet, managed to make it adorable.

-God bless The Washington Post for delving deep into the mysterious situation that had two primary Good Wife characters not sharing any scenes for years. I really, really liked Dan Fienberg’s quote in that piece about how manipulative and insulting to the audience Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi‘s fake scenes together these past two episodes have been. (And we’re all assuming last night’s was green-screened, right?) I was texting back and forth with Nicole last night during the show and was so angry that the writers expected us to suddenly care about their friendship when they haven’t been on screen together in 50+ eps. Hard pass!

-In any case, critics are tearing apart last night’s season finale. On-set tension or not, that was just bad. And yet, CBS just renewed it.

-Actually CBS basically renewed everythingexcept for Battle Creek and the terrible, terrible Stalker.

-Over on Fox, they announced The X Files revival will premiere in January 2016, American Idol is ending, and Empire has added Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz and Alicia Keys. Also, Sleepy Hollow is going up against Shondaland on Thursday nights so colour it screwed.

-Meanwhile, NBC unveiled its fall lineup and it’s … not good. Blindspot may have potential, and critics seemed to enjoy the sizzle reels of Eva Longoria‘s Hot and Bothered, and Megan Mullally’s You, Me and the End of the World, but there’s not a lot of buzz for the others. And seriously, how is a “frazzled lady professional” show like Heartbreaker still getting made in 2015?!

Amy Schumer‘s latest skit is about men who want to have sex with beer.

-Are Jake Gyllenhaal and Ruth Wilson still on? Or is he with Rachel McAdams? Don’t fail me, internet!

-Here’s the new Orange Is the New Black trailer.

Henry Cavill is a walking PSA for why stars need stylists.

James McAvoy shaved off his hair. His beautiful, beautiful hair.

-National treasure Colin Hanks made an impassioned plea for more Star Wars merch for girls.

-Critics are loving the new Mad Max movie, which is currently at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

-Here’s the trailer for Unexpected starring Cobie Smulders, which got great buzz at Sundance.
