-In Ariana Grande‘s Elle cover story, she talks about dealing with the Manchester concert and loving Jaws when she was just 4, but stays mum on her quickie engagement.

-Meanwhile, Pete Davidson defended his decision to give fiancée Ariana Grande his late father’s FDNY badge, which she’s wearing on a necklace.

Meghan Markle‘s father says he thinks his daughter looks terrified in her new family, saying he can tell by her smile. My god, how is he still allowed to talk about her?

-The is weird: Hulu just stealth-dropped the entire new season of UnREAL. It may still air on Lifetime, but not until next year, if at all. They’re playing it like it’s a Beyonce-style surprise release, but it feels a lot more like a summer burn-off.

Johnny Depp has settled his legal feud with his former managers.

Demi Moore and Cybill Shepherd got in on the Bruce Willis-roasting action for Comedy Central.

Jessica Biel‘s trouble-plagued restaurant has abruptly closed.

Chris Pine uses a flip phone and drives a Jeep Wagoner. And yet, I still think he’s the best Chris. He’s so great, he’s able to overcome all this hipster nonsense.

Sacha Baron Cohen‘s new series on Showtime is getting rave reviews. I like this take on how he’s able to respond to right wing troll culture in a way mainstream reporters cannot. The gun segment is insane.

Danielle Panabaker will make her directorial debut in The Flash’s new season. Well, they’re not giving her anything to do in front of the camera so she might as well try behind it.

Billy Bush‘s wife has filed for divorce. She deserves a medal for sticking it out for two years after the tapes.

Cardi B, Beyonce and Jay-Z are leading the MTV VMA nominations.

-I gave up on The Crown because it was way too slow for my tastes, but Olivia Colman looks amazing as Queen Elizabeth. It’s hard to believe that that’s the same woman who once said “Move away from me now or I will piss in a cup and throw it at you.”

-I missed that Broadway stars were sniping about Lauren Ambrose taking Sunday matinees off during her My Fair Lady run.

-Stranger Things doesn’t come back until next year, but Netflix is already promoting it with a new teaser that introduces a new job for Steve.

-Expectant couple Norman Reedus and Diane Kruger had some face mask fun on Instagram, but seriously, has no one introduced them to Korean sheet masks yet?! I expect more from her.

-I love that Christine Baranski had no idea what Big Dick Energy was, but as soon as she was told she had it she was like “oh, I get it now.”

-Now that The Handmaid’s Tale finale has aired here, I get why it was so divisive with critics last week.

-Michelle Obama dancing in the front row of a Beyonce concert is a mood.

-Vulture ranked the 20 best rom-com sidekicks and I love these picks!

-I’m seeing The Miseducation of Cameron Post this week, and the new trailer has me v. excited.

-The promo for an Emma Roberts/Hayden Christensen rom-com might actually be the worst trailer of the year. So naturally, I can’t wait to watch it.

-Speaking of movie trailers, I love this 90s trailer bracket.

Felicity Jones fights for gender equality as young a Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the trailer for On the Basis of Sex, costarring Armie Hammer. This looks, um…not great.

Is Beyonce Pregnant Or Just Messing With Us?

Beyonce‘s belly bump watch just kicked into high gear thanks to this video from her new tour, in which she appears to cup her stomach. I dunno; she just had twins a year ago and she posed with a Corona just last week.

-In news that should surprise no one, Johnny Depp is being sued for allegedly punching a location manager on the City of Lies set. The lawsuit claims the actor screamed obscenities at the crew member and punched him twice in the ribs, then offered him $100,000 to punch back.

Robin Wright broke her silence about costar Kevin Spacey, making it clear she didn’t have a friendship with him beyond the House of Cards set. In her Today Show interview, she says “Kevin and I knew each other between action and cut, and in between setups, where we would giggle. I didn’t really …I didn’t know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is.”

-Also, costar Patricia Clarkson credits her for saving the show after the scandal. “Robin led all of this charge so that people would save their livelihoods, because when the show goes away, some people don’t get paid. I think it’s going to be a stunning, stunning new season and I’m thankful for it.”

-Is 24 the new age for celebrities to get engaged? And cripes, is that another pear-shaped diamond?!

Gal Gadot stopped by a children’s hospital in Virginia dressed like Wonder Woman and the photos are lovely.

-I really like Dwayne Johnson‘s response to those tough Baywatch reviews: “It’s not that critics didn’t like it. They … hated it. But to clarify, it’s not audience first, critics never. Critics love movies, and we’re all in this business together.”

-Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams wants a new trial to lower his $50K monthly child support bill.

-I don’t love the olive green Ralph Lauren dress that Meghan Markle wore to Prince Louis‘ christening today, but Princess Charlotte was always going to steal the show anyway.

Harvey Weinstein appeared in court and  pled not guilty to new sexual assault charges, and won’t face home confinement. Also, he’s apparently working as a paralegal on his own case.

-The new chief of Warner laid out his vision for HBO — and he basically wants to turn it into Netflix. This is so weird and misguided. HBO has an established and respected brand and tone; Netflix’s original content strategy just seems to be throwing things at the wall and seeing what sticks without worrying about bloat or quality.

Drake‘s Scorpion is now the first album to reach 1 billion streams in a week. I’m happy for him; I just wish it was a better album.

-Also, Drake‘s new freestyle “Behind Barz” seems to be about Kanye West.

-I’m both impressed and not at all surprised that Lin-Manuel Miranda deals with mean people by being unfailingly cheerful until they feel so bad they end up apologizing.

Stan Lee has dropped his $1 billion lawsuit against his former company.

-Lawrence is nowhere to be seen and Issa looks like she’s still living with Daniel in the new Insecure promo.

-The ladies of Litchfield try to adjust to life in maximum security in the season 6 trailer for Orange Is The New Black.

-Gross. Jerry O’Connell  is hosting a show called Real Men Watch Bravo this fall, because god forbid we don’t coddle masculine fragility. Straight white dudes exhaust me.

Sacha Baron Cohen released a short preview of his new Showtime show Who Is America, which he says he’s been undercover secretly filming it for a year. In the clip, he gets Dick Cheney to autograph his “waterboarding kit.”

Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy are currently shooting the IT sequel in Toronto, and her IG stories make it seem like they’re having a great time. They dined at Kasa Moto on Saturday (so close to my house!) and then she got him to demonstrate proper hand washing technique.

Emma Stone, Olivia Colman and Rachel Weisz star in the first trailer for The Favourite. (I love that they’re using the British spelling.) It’s from the director of The Lobster, a movie I still haven’t quite wrapped my head around.

Johnny Depp Profile Goes Viral – For All The Wrong Reasons

Johnny Depp‘s shady lawyer arranged for a profile in Rolling Stone, and whatever sympathy they were trying to garner with this article — it totally backfired. (Variety just called it a “PR liability.”) Written by Stephen Rodrick and titled ‘The Trouble With Johnny Depp’, it does not paint a favourable picture of the fading star. You really should read the whole thing because it’s batcrap crazy, but the most eyebrow-raising parts are when he argues that his financial troubles were actually *under* reported (“It’s insulting to say that I spent $30,000 on wine. Because it was far more…By the way, it was not $3 million to shoot Hunter [S. Thompson] into the f***ing sky. It was $5 million”), Rodrick’s view of how the actor considers his legal woes (“Depp seems oblivious to any personal complicity in his current predicament. [Lawyer] Waldman seems to have convinced Depp that they are freedom fighters taking on the Hollywood machine rather than scavengers squabbling over the scraps of a fortune squandered”) and the article’s closing salvo (“‘Thanks for coming,’ says Depp. ‘This could be your Pulitzer.’ For the next 15 minutes, Depp tries to figure out how to open the gates to his mansion fortress. He clicks buttons and pushes the fence, but nothing budges. He is a lost boy who won’t find his way home before dark. I finally tell him I can shimmy over the fence. I clamber over and jump down. Through the bars we say good night.”)

Michael Schur says his favorite joke from this season of The Good Place is a Pirates Of The Caribbean diss. It is pretty perfect.

Pete Davidson officially confirmed his engagement to Ariana Grande on Jimmy Fallon’s show last night:  “Some people come up to me and say, Yo man, you give me hope. I didn’t know I was that ugly…I’m a lucky motherf***er.”

-I love that a bunch of TV writers rooms across all types of different networks have banded together to support an initiative to help families separated at the US border.

Demi Lovato dropped a surprise new single called Sober, in which she reveals that after six years of sobriety, she apparently relapsed.

-While Brad Pitt‘s camp is planting stories about how he’s being cheated out of custody rights, Angelina Jolie  is visiting Mosul a year after its liberation from ISIS, and talking about the world’s lack of action.

-This GQ first person essay by Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Stephanie Beatriz is really worth your time.  She talks about how she’s getting married to a man, but how that shouldn’t make her seem any less bi.

-Bless Zoey Deutch for not holding back her criticism when asked  on Watch What Happens Live what it was like to kiss James Franco.

-It’s good to see that Rian Johnson has a sense of humor about this kind of fandom bs.

Justin Theroux posed for the cover of Men’s Health and kept his shirt on so what was even the point?

-Speaking of covers, Janet Jackson looks amazing on the new issue of Essence. In the interview, she talks about going through an “intense” bout of depression in her 30s.

Seth Rogen is justifiably excited about the possibility of sharing a song credit with Beyonce on the upcoming Lion King soundtrack.

-MTV is rebooting Daria, Made, Aeon Flux and The Real World — and hopes to sell them to other networks/streaming services — as it launches MTV Studios. The studio push is an effort across all Viacom brands, which is why Nickelodeon just sold an animated kids show to Netflix.

Jim Carrey sings a sad song for Michel Gondry in the Kidding teaser.
