-Holy crap, am I loving Drake‘s epic Degrassi reunion in his new video. (Nina Dobrev is looking good here. I was worried for a minute there…) At first I assumed it was just really good timing on his part and couldn’t possibly be a reaction to Pusha T‘s diss track (which dropped May 29) because the timeline was too short to pull together a video like this. But it turns out they shot it last weekend and according to this IG post it went from “concept to shoot in a week, shoot to release in four days.” So yeah, he managed to call up his old costars and pull together the perfect response in just two weeks. Way to go, Wheelchair Jimmy!

–Rose McGowan helped bring about Harvey Weinstein‘s downfall. Now, the activist says he’s trying to take her down with him. (She may be problematic, but the felony drug charge she’s facing over a lost wallet with cocaine does indeed sound shady af).
–Marc Maron, Louie Anderson, Ray Romano, Tracy Morgan, Sean Hayes and Tony Shalhoub talked about the #MeToo movement in THR’s comedy actor roundtable. I’m not overly interested in what any of these guys have to say about it, but Romano made a good point: “I don’t know how to speak to any of this, but there’s an awareness of how hard it is for women now…Yes, there are some harsh things happening and harsh judgments, but the one good thing is that we’re becoming aware of what it means when somebody, even if they don’t think they’re harassing, is crossing the boundaries a bit.”
–Bill Cosby has fired his entire legal team ahead of his sentencing following his guilty verdict.

How did I not know this? How is there no trailer yet?!
