-It’s really cold. Everyone’s miserable. We’re only halfway through the week. Let’s all cheer up by feasting our eyes on Chris Hemsworth’s Men’s Health spread, mm-kay?

Kevin Hart tweeted support for Jussie Smollett, and people were NOT having it.  It *is* pretty rich coming from someone who joked about beating his son if he were gay, and then wouldn’t apologize for it until forced to.

Drake went to McDonalds and reportedly handed two employees $10k in cash each.

-According to a new Deadline report, Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway are furious with Serenity’s film distributor after it posted the worst opening weekend numbers of their careers. They agreed to do a press blitz to save the film, but the distributor reportedly didn’t follow through with the accompanying marketing spend. Come to think of it, I don’t ever remember seeing a trailer or ad for it. It just came on my radar when critics started trashing its twist ending.

-The always-delightful Viola Davis explained menopause to Jimmy Kimmel.

Richard E Grant is so pure. His entire social media feed during this Oscar race has been aces, but these photos of him finding out that Barbra Streisand tweeted at him are the best.

Ariana Grande‘s fandom has uncovered so much about her upcoming album by sorting through vague clues that if I ever need to be defended in court, I want them to do it.

-Newly unsealed documents in Kesha’s ongoing legal battle with Dr. Luke show that Lady Gaga stood firm in her support of the singer during a September 2017 deposition. This part where she told off Dr. Luke’s lawyer made me cheer: “Why on earth would this girl tell the entire world that this happened? Why on earth? Do you know what it’s like for survivors? Do you know what it’s like to tell people? Don’t you roll your eyes at me. You should be ashamed of yourself.”

-Universal is the first studio to accept the 4% challenge to hire women directors.

Timothée Chalamet grooving to a deep cut from Mariah Carey is a mood.

-Millennium studio chief Avi Lerner, who called an exposé accusing director Bryan Singer of raping teens “fake news,” is clarifying his comments. His big defense? He OK’d his original statement without reading it first. Oh, and he says no one in Hollywood has complained about his statement, he’s standing by it, and he’s not convinced about the accusations against Singer. No one’s going to touch this Red Sonja movie with a 10-ft pole.

-In another depressing twist, Singer stands to make $40 million off Bohemian Rhapsody, even though the film’s entire Oscar campaign is built around trying to make everyone forget he is the credited director.

-I really like this casting announcement for Netflix’s You. She was great in The Haunting of Hill House.

Justin Beiber and Hailey Baldwin have sent save the date cards for their wedding celebration.

-Sony has finally (FINALLY!) cut ties with R Kelly. Their RCA Records label has dropped him on the heels of the Lifetime documentary.

-Also, a former music label intern is accusing him of sexually abusing her as a teenager, which she’ll talk about on tonight’s Dateline.

Tom Holland remains the cutest bean to ever exist.

-Arrow’s 150th episode sounds… kind of funny? Fine, I’m back in.

Nic Pizzolatto and HBO are reportedly fighting over the True Detective season 3 finale. Has there ever been someone who needs to just get out of his own way more than this guy?

Mariah Carey‘s war with her ex-assistant is insane. Blackmail! Secret recordings! NDAs! Pee!

-It’s interesting that Netflix considers its biggest competition not HBO, but Fortnite.

Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae are starring in a rom-com together and I’m here for it!

-On the Graham Norton Show, they aired an old clip of Timothée Chalamet rapping about math and it was amazing. The also aired a clip of 10-year-old Saoirse Ronan winning a radio contest.

-According to Vulture, David Letterman recently interviewed Kanye West for the second season of his Netflix talk show. I don’t want to hear from either of those dudes so that’s a definite skip.

Natalie Portman is the latest celeb to push for inclusion riders in Hollywood contracts.

-This is an interesting look at how Spotify’s revenue model makes it impossible for mid-level artists to be fairly compensated.

-Bless Twitter shippers for alerting me to the fact that Karen Page shows up in episode 11 of the new season of The Punisher. I can just skip to that, right?

Jesse Eisenberg and Alexander Skarsgard race for stock market quotes in the trailer for The Hummingbird Project.

All of a sudden, I thought I was going to die, and people are taking pictures. It was horrendous”), and shares how dating fiance Joe LoCicero was a “new experience’ for her

Brie Larson has called off her engagement to Alex Greenwald after several years of dating.

-Does The Weeknd reference Drake’s secret baby in his new track?

-Jesus. Janeane Garofalo talked about Louis C.K. on a podcast and it was a mess. Around the 35-min mark she says: “Leave Louis C.K. alone. Enough with that. He’s been my friend since 1985 and I think he has suffered. When he performs at the Comedy Cellar and people get all irate…if nothing else, care about his daughters. If you can find no compassion for him (which I think you should), think about his how daughters who hear all of this stuff feel. Why don’t you leave him alone for them if you’re so women-empowering?” Then she goes on a rant about how everyone is misunderstanding what he did — even though he ADMITTED IT.

-You technically came out last year on Lifetime, but when Netflix picked it up for season two, it dropped the first season last season and now it’s suddenly found it’s audience, making it the latest beneficiary of the very real Netflix bump.

-Also, I liked this piece on You’s season finale (spoilers, obvs) and how the show is a ripe target for bad fandom and viewers who misread the show for their own ends, blithely ignoring that every character is supposed to be a loathsome monster.

-Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s return did great last night. It got its biggest ratings in two years, and improved on NBC’s timeslot by 50%.

-HBO is hop‌ing y’all will tune into True Detective on Sunday so that you can learn the Game of Thrones premiere date.

Noah Centineo is playing Riverdale star Camila Mendes‘ fake boyfriend in the upcoming Netflix movie The Perfect Date. Fake dating is my favourite trope!

Condor also appeared in Jimmy Fallon‘s high school musical skit alongside Bryan Cranston.

Amy Adams told James Corden about how she once annoyed Whitney Houston while working at The Gap: “She went back into the dressing room and requested anybody else.”

Timothée Chalamet was delightful on Ellen, where he talked about playing pranks on his mother and admitted he once locked his naked mom outside on a cruise ship balcony.

-The reviews for Sex Education, Netflix’s new teen comedy starring Gillian Anderson, make it sound like a total delight. There goes my weekend!

Cara Delevingne says she has lost 50,000 followers on Instagram since slamming R. Kelly. She doesn’t seem to mind though, adding “Goodbye silence and backwards followers, hello confrontation and forward thinkers. It’s going to be a loud year xxx #MuteRKelly”.

-Exactly how many projects does Jordan Peele have on the go? Here’s the trailer for his upcoming sci-fi comedy.

-A few days ago I posted the trailer for Little, starring Regina Hall and Issa Rae, and it looks so funny! But now I want to see it even more because I just found out that Marsai Martin, the little girl from Blackish, is an executive producer on the film (and is one of the leads), because it’s her concept! She also fired an agent who told her to “chill and take a break” when she was 10. I think I love her.

Jamie Dornan and Jemima Kirke‘s one-night stand gets complicated when she tries to DTR in the Untogether trailer.
