Does Meghan Markle Suddenly Sound British?

-People seem to be really angry that Meghan Markle sounds like she’s starting to adopt a British accent, but I’m totally here for it!

Jennifer Lopez has sparked speculation that she and A-Rod are engaged after she posted a photo in which she is prominently showing off a ring.

-Speaking of new rings, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas were spotted wearing matching bands, leading to rumours that they are promise rings. Remember the other kind of promise ring he used to wear? I sure do.

-For the first time in recent memory, Taylor Swift had a super low key fourth of July. Not even matching bathing suits? Oh, Tay-Tay.

Chris Brown was arrested in Florida following his concert (because apparently people still pay to see him?!) for a felony battery warrant stemming from an April 2017 incident at a Tampa night club in which Brown allegedly punched photographer, Bennie Louis Vines

-The LA Times says it’s the perfect time for Greta Gerwig’s version of Little Women. Maybe but I’m just SO BORED by the cast. They’re all great (Saoirse Ronan, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone and Timothée Chalamet) but just so very predictable.

-It looks like Sacha Baron Cohen is in talks with Showtime for a new TV series — and he’ll be targeting the president, somehow.

-As someone who identifies as “washed,” I loved this article.

-Panic! At the Disco’s Brendon Urie just came out as pansexual. “I’m married to a woman and I’m very much in love with her but I’m not opposed to a man because, to me, I like a person. Yeah I guess you could qualify me as pansexual because I really don’t care.”

-If the tracking is correct, Ant Man and The Wasp will buzz to $75 million-$85 million this weekend. (The first one opened to $57.2 million.)

-I’m choosing to believe that Demi Lovato’s tweet isn’t shade but instead encouragement directed at me personally.

-Ahead of her daughter’s wedding, rumours are swirling that Anna Wintour is preparing to leave Vogue.

-Oh no. Elvis Costello, 63, cancelled his tour after revealing he is battling a “very aggressive” cancer.

-If Mariah Carey‘s kid is putting a plastic bag over his head, maybe that’s his way of saying he doesn’t want to be dragged onstage?

Keri Russell is re-teaming with JJ Abrams for Star Wars Episode IX. It’s not exactly the Felicity reunion I was hoping for, but I’ll take it!

-Also, miss me with all this talk that she should play Rey’s mother. Hard pass.

Will Smith revealed Kanye West and Kim Kardashian‘s reaction to his son, Jaden, wearing a Batman costume to their 2014 wedding. “Ye was cool. ‘Yo, I love that!’ Kim was a little bit like, ‘Jaden…'”

James Woods, who often spouts ultra-right, pro-Trump sentiments, was abruptly dropped by his agent on the 4th of July because the agent was “feeling patriotic.”

Anne Hathaway fangirling over Jake Gyllenhaal on Instagram made my day.

-Batman fans are super angry about the latest issue.

-I really liked this NYT profile on Lakeith Stanfield, who is promoting Sorry to Bother You. Vulture’s profile on the movie’s director, the awesomely named Boots Riley, is also great. (Apparently the movie’s ending is a real head-scratcher though.)

-I am so here for The Spy Who Dumped Me.

Let’s Talk About Drake’s Rumoured Secret Son

-I usually stay out of hip hop beefs cause I don’t even go here, but this is too insane to overlook. First there was all the drama last weekend (Pusha T‘s new song claimed Drake uses a ghostwriter, Drake slammed Pusha T for his new album art which features a photo that Kanye West bought for $85k of Whitney Houston‘s drug-filled bathroom, then came news that Kanye has abandoned the Chicago charity created in his mother’s name, and Kim Kardashian, Nicki Minaj and Chrissy Teigen all waded into the fray). Then Drake released a rather mild diss track in which he basically said that Pusha isn’t really about that hard-living, drug-dealing life. In response, Pusha released his OWN diss track last night — and he went all in. He raps about how Drake’s best friend is dying from multiple sclerosis, reminds Drake that his dad left him when he was five, and then puts it on blast that Drake himself is a deadbeat dad, mentioning a secret son named Adonis that Drake is rumoured to have had with a porn star (reportedly Sophie Brussaux). In the words of Ron Burgundy: that escalated quickly! Here’s everything we know about Drake‘s rumoured secret baby.

-There’s been some good takes on Roseanne’s cancellation. I like this one, which reiterates that ABC made a business decision not a moral one, and Roxanne Gay’s take in the NYT: “I am more interested in the statement ABC could have made by never making the reboot in the first place.”

-Last night on Twitter, Roseanne blamed Ambien for her racist tweet (and the pharmaceutical company had a great comeback). She also released an apology, which she then undercut by accusing costars Michael Fishman and Sara Gilbert of  throwing her under the bus. And today she says she feels like “fighting back.” So clearly, she’s really learned about the consequences of her actions.

-Roseanne stars Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf and John Goodman  expect to be paid for the upcoming scrapped season even though they didn’t start shooting it yet, while what, if anything, the writers will receive remains less clear.

-I don’t necessarily agree with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s THR column questioning ABC’s decision, but I’m here for the paragraph calling Jason Bateman out: “A few days [after apologizing for “mansplaining”] Bateman appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to tell a funny story about a minor traffic crash he was in with Will Arnett. During the entirety of telling the story, he continued to refer to Arnett as a woman because Arnett acted frightened and weak after the accident. Bateman was clearly joking and meant no harm, but there is harm when your idea of insulting someone is to say they are weak like women.”

-Seeing as I now have negative interest in the new Arrested Development episodes, I’m glad that the new season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is getting such glowing reviews.

Eminem tweeted about a weird, accidental moment he once shared with Val Kilmer while in a backstage trailer at an award show. “I know Val Kilmer saw me naked. I just had to get that off my chest.” Kilmer swears he saw nothing.

-Simon Cowell has no good words for American Idol. “I’m genuinely not interested. I think when we were on it years ago, it was a fun show. It was different, it was kind of naïve, lots of surprises. I kind of think we’ve been there, I’ve been there, time for something new.” I mean, he then went on to praise Britain’s Got Talent and America’s Got Talent, so…

Mariah Carey reportedly sold James Packer’s engagement ring for over $2 million. Bless her.

Jacob Tremblay finally found Ryan Reynolds in Japan.

Mario Batali is currently under investigation by the NYPD following a new wave of sexual misconduct allegations. Seven women allege the former TV chef groped them in a new report.

-I really liked this interview with Steven Yeun. I hope he has an enormous post-Walking Dead career.

Kim Kardashian West met with officials, including senior adviser Jared Kushner, at the White House today to discuss prison reform. We live in the upside down.

-I still watch many of the CW superhero shows (begrudgingly, sometimes) but this photo of Arrow’s new writing room has been genuinely intrigued. It’s mostly women! And there’s actually some POC! What’s happening?!? (Also, all of the replies from whiny comic fanboys worried that they’re turning the show into a soap opera feed my soul.)

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson just made it Instagram official, posting a pic in matching Harry Potter outfits.

-You can watch the first 15 minutes of Dietland, which stars Julianna Margulies and Joy Nash, debuting on June 4 on AMC. I’m very in on this.

-The Americans comes to a close tonight and I’m not ready. This was a show that wowed me from the beginning, lost me when it started to feel like homework, and then lured me back for its final (and best?) season. This exit interview with Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys really hit me right in the heart guts.

Keri Russell played “Did I Murder You?” on Kimmel and it was very funny. I love her reaction when the Scott Speedman photo pops us.

-The This Is Us creator says they have already filmed ‘pieces’ of the show’s final scene, which makes sense to me, especially if he expects certain cast members won’t be around anymore by then.

-I am totally on board for Keanu Reeves‘ sudden interest in rom-coms. He just signed on to star in a Netflix one from Ali Wong and Randall Park, which costars Daniel Dae Kim and Charlyne Yi. I like ALL of those names!

Alan Rickman‘s personal letters reveal that he was frustrated with his role as Snape in the Harry Potter films.

Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively star in the trailer for A Simple Favor.

Mariah Carey Reveals Bipolar Diagnosis

Mariah Carey Bipolar Disorder PEOPLE cover

-In her People cover story, Mariah Carey revealed she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2001. “For a long time I thought I had a severe sleep disorder. But it wasn’t normal insomnia and I wasn’t lying awake counting sheep. I was working and working and working…I was irritable and in constant fear of letting people down. It turns out that I was experiencing a form of mania.” Good on her for opening up and starting conversations about mental health.

-Meanwhile, Vulture ranks which of the 33 characters are most likely to die in the movie. (I think the second-from-the-last person they list is pretty much a sure thing, no?)

Patti LuPone was not a fan of Uma Thurman’s Broadway debut. “I don’t necessarily need to see film actors on stage. Can I just say…Uma Thurman in The Parisian Woman, anybody seen it? [Raising her eyes and speaking slowly] Holy shit! I’m sorry, I’m sorry.”

John Legend said on Ellen he knows who bit Beyonce but he’s staying mum.

Amy Schumer says Jennifer Lawrence introduced her to Adele — and the singer almost officiated her wedding. “I’d never met her before. We hung out a little bit that week, and then we were just real drunk one night, and we were talking about how we wanted to get married, and Adele was like, ‘Well, I can marry you.’ And we were like, ‘OK, cool.’ We were making a whole plan…and then the next day, she was like, ‘Hey, we’re not really, like, friends.'”

-I don’t care what everyone else believes, Hugh Jackman‘s anniversary message to his wife is super sweet.

Jake Gyllenhaal is insisting he won’t be the new Batman. Wait, was that a possibility?!

Kevin Smith offered an ailing Stan Lee an invitation to move in with him.

Aisha Tyler directed a new movie called Axis, which I saw and really liked. It’s out now on streaming platforms.

-Not surprisingly, Netflix is pulling out of Cannes completely.

-I really liked this article on Drake and Cardi B’s recent samplings of Lauren Hill.
