Harry Styles Defends His Teen Fans


-One Direction’s Harry Styles was interviewed by Cameron Crowe for Rolling Stone’s new cover story and it’s surprisingly great considering how he usually seems to mess with his fandom. He praises teen girls’ pure unironic enjoyment of things (“Who’s to say that young girls who like pop music – short for popular, right? – have worse musical taste than a 30-year-old hipster guy?…If they like you, they’re there. They don’t act ‘too cool.'”) and ridicules the tortured artist stereotype (“There’s nothing worse than an inauthentic tortured person. ‘They took my allowance away, so I did heroin.’ It’s like – that’s not how it works.”)

-Alright, Blake Lively gets a pass for being on the Variety cover because she’s promoting her work with the Child Rescue Coalition (which is promoting technology that flags the IP addresses of people who share and download sexually explicit images of minors).

Blake also revealed that she loves to do the dance from The OA.

-Speaking of the Variety covers, Jessica Chastain talks about how she’s fighting for Planned Parenthood.

-Also, director James Gunn revealed the film will have five(!) post-credit scenes.

-This was my favourite part of the Pretty Little Liars oral history: “I created a little box that hung on the wall. If you asked a logic question [about the show’s plot], you had to put a dollar in it.” Well, at least they’re honest about it.

Tracy Morgan still calls his 30 Rock costar Jack McBrayer by his character’s name, Kenneth, which might be the most Tracy Morgan-ist thing I’ve ever heard.

-This is an interesting take on how celebs like Justin Bieber, Father John Misty, and Zayn gain control from trolling their fans.

Don Cheadle rapping Kendrick Lamar in the “DNA” video is even better than it sounds.

James Corden challenged The Night Of’s Riz Ahmed to a rap battle and lost rul hard. Riz also performed with his band Swet Shop Boys at Coachella and looked mighty fine doing it.

-Here’s the first trailer for American Assassin starring Dylan O’Brien and Taylor Kitsch.

Kristen Stewart gave a really articulate answer when asked about her sexuality in Nylon’s new cover story. “Google me, I’m not hiding…If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it. But I am an actress, man. I live in the fucking ambiguity of this life and I love it. I don’t feel like it would be true for me to be like, ‘I’m coming out!'”

-She was also at her most smile-y on The Late Show last night, whether she was convincing Jimmy Fallon that she doesn’t always look miserable or playing Word Blunt.

-I haven’t watched Pretty Little Liars in years, but it was hilarious watching Twitter lose its shit last night when A was finally revealed. Besides sounding dumb, the twist offended some. (It’s this person, btdubs).

-Speaking of divisive TV characters, Annabeth Gish will reprise her X Files role for the reboot.

-The dirty laundry from the set of the Fantastic Four movie has gotten so bad that director Josh Trank has lawyered up. First came rumours that he treated Kate Mara badly because she wasn’t his first choice for Sue, and now the Hollywood Reporter has delved deeper into all the onset tension. This is what happens when you give the keys to the kingdom to a hot-headed indie filmmaker with only one little-seen movie under his belt and expect him to know how to manage a huge budget and crew.

-Also, io9’s vague recall of key FF scenes is surely more entertaining than the movie itself.

-Meanwhile, this is the best piece I’ve read about superhero movie fatigue (and Ben Affleck‘s career trajectory) in a long time. Footnote #4 kills me.

-My favourite Joshua Jackson moment of all time (and there have been a LOT) is his PaceyCon video, so I’m glad he’s keeping the dream alive. (Also, this picture almost didn’t happen because of Stephen Colbert’s publicist, but she finally clued in.)

Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc weren’t invited to Jennifer Aniston‘s wedding, and they’re totally fine with it .

Anna Faris says of the tabloid’s rumours about Chris Pratt cheating: “This has been blindsiding to us. We have an incredible relationship. It has been weirdly stinging.”

Ed Westwick‘s red carpet reunion with Chase Crawford warms my cold, cold heart.

Kelly Rutherford calls the court order to send her kids back to Monaco ‘shocking, illegal and abusive’. She also says her daughter almost drowned on her ex’s watch.

Ed Sheeran’s new tattoo has so crossed the line beyond good taste, he can’t even see the line anymore. The line is just a dot to him at this point.

-Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner is spittin’ some truth on Instagram.

Ronda Rousey wants to play Captain Marvel? Make this happen, Hollywood!

-15 days in and the highlight of the TCAs seems to be yesterday’s panel with CW’s female showrunners, in which they talked about their refusal to depict sexual violence. That network has 12 female showrunners. No other network comes close.

Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk went to the beach in matching bathing suits, where they made out and choked each other. Sure.

-Meanwhile, I’m so here for his new movie, Burnt. Remember when he was playing the Anthony Bourdain character in Kitchen Confidential?

-The stars of Pretty Little Liars did a really porn-y GQ spread that made me immediately close my browser, clear my cache and disinfect my computer monitor.

Jason Biggs really, really has to stop trying to be funny on Twitter. It never works.

-The Hollywood Reporter’s “drama queens” cover is so very, very white. I thought maybe it was because they were only featuring actresses who had a shot at a Lead Actress in a Drama series Emmy, but then what the hell is Jessica Pare doing there?! And where’s Kerry Washington? All the sighs.
