Taylor Swift Continues to Own Katy Perry

Katy Perry dropped a new video — but Taylor Swift is still the one getting all the buzz today. This is getting embarrassing.

-The buzz is building that Katy Perry and Taylor Swift will perform together at the VMAs. I’m really not sure why Katy would do this. She’s already in a losing position: her new album tanked, and Taylor is clearly using the show to launch her new album, overshadowing any spotlight Katy will get as the host. What’s the upside for Katy here?

Katy Perry was cryptic about whether she’s dating Orlando Bloom again, saying “When you get older, lines get blurred.” That’s the nicest way to describe hooking up I’ve every heard.

Laura Prepon and Ben Foster (aka the couple everyone forgets is a couple) just had a baby.

-Holy crap, yet ANOTHER Joker movie has been announced. Who even wants this?

-The new trailer for This Is Us season two made me teary, which is the entire point of the show. (I’ve decided I’m going to stop fighting it and just give in. A lot about this show still chafes me, but what they do well, they do really, really well. It doesn’t hurt that this clip is so Randall heavy.)

-This is such a strange story: a book seems to have bought its way onto the NYT bestseller YA list.

-I kind of love that Henry Cavill‘s girlfriend is a) beautiful while also being normal-looking, b) not a teenager, c) a stuntperson, d) can clearly kick his ass.

-This is an interesting look at what happens when a show like Game of Thrones, which is all about plot, suddenly sucks at plotting.

-I also liked these 27 things that didn’t make sense about the White Walker battle in the last episode. (I would add a 28th: why didn’t they light up the fire sword again when they were worried about freezing to death?)

Anthony Bourdain is fed up with food waste in the new trailer for Wasted!

-Here’s the trailer for Richard Linklater’s Last Flag Flying, which stars Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston and Laurence Fishburne.

Jason Statham and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley combined their perfect DNA and now they have a son: Jack Oscar.

Miranda Kerr handed over $8.1 million in jewelry that’s linked to a corruption case.

Steve Carell shocked and aroused the internet with these new photos of him looking like a silver fox. He didn’t even look this good after his makeover in Crazy Stupid Love! He responded to the attention by joking “My wife finally said she’s in love with me.”

Michelle Rodriguez says she’ll leave the Fast & Furious franchise if they don’t ‘show love to the Women’ in the next film.

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck took a family vacation.

-The Pretty Little Liars writer says that finale bombshell was years in the making and they didn’t just pull it out of their ass.

-Meanwhile, the finale got killer ratings.

-Speaking of shows with a large social media following, I really like this interview with showrunners about what happens when fans help trend/promote a show and then feel ownership.

-Baby Driver did really well at the box office in the Tuesday night previews.

Shonda Rhimes says people treat her differently after she lost 150 lbs. — and she hates it.

-It’s a big day for Hamilton. Lin-Manuel Miranda has celebrities singing the soundtrack for an amazing cause, Nicole Kidman and The Beguiled kids performed “Schuyler Sisters” for #Ham4All, and there’s a new Hamilton Mixtape video with K’naan and Riz Ahmed.

-Hunt for the Wilderpeople’s Julian Dennison joins Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 2. It’s Ricky Baker! (If you haven’t seen the movie Hunt for the Wilderpeople yet, it’s on Netflix and it’s great!)

-Hurrah! -You’re The Worst returns Sept 6.

-The first trailer for Hugh Jackman’s circus musical is here. The trailer doesn’t do much for me but the cast includes Michelle Williams, Zac Efron and Zendaya so I’ll try it.
