Kim Kardashian and Kanye West named their new daughter Chicago. Who do they think they are, the Beckhams? (j/k, I actually think it’s a cute name.)

-Meanwhile, Kim burned Lamar Odom on Twitter in a pretty spectacular fashion.

-In her new Billboard cover, Lorde talks about the #MeToo movement (“What is really interesting and important about this moment is that every man I know is having to check himself — having to be aware of his misogynistic biases, having to re-examine his understanding of consent”) and Cardi B’s lack of Grammy noms (“Cardi B should have gotten a nomination in one of those big categories. She kind of defined 2017”).

-The Mark Wahlberg story just gets worse and worse. It turns out that, despite being a secondary character in All The Money In The World, his regular salary was almost 10 times more than Michelle Williams (who was the female lead). He made $5 million, while Williams made a mere $625,000.

-Ooh boy. Call Me By Your Name star Timothée Chalamet claimed his contract blocked him from criticizing Woody Allen and supporting Dylan Farrow. Except it didn’t.

Colin Firth is the latest actor to say he’ll never work with Allen again.

-Meanwhile, this is a good look at why so many famous dudes still refuse to condemn Allen.

-Is it possible for Justin Timberlake to release an album without subtly dissing Britney Spears? Just once?

-Amazon canceled Tig Notaro‘s terrific One Mississippi. It’s a weird moment for Hollywood to be canceling so many women-led shows (Maria Bamford s Lady Dynamite and Jill Soloway‘s I Love Dick were also cut loose).

Frances McDormand talking about how Joel Coen seduced her on the set of Blood Simple with literature and hot chocolate is everything.

Gerard Butler used his fling with Real Housewives star Brandi Glanville for talk show fodder, and she was not having it.

Daniel Radcliffe goes to desperate lengths to save his wife in the Beast of Burden trailer.

Ellen Pompeo Reveals Why She’s TV’s $20 Million Woman

-If you read any long form article today, read THR’s cover story on Ellen Pompeo. It’s a refreshingly candid about the negotiations that made her the highest paid actress on television. She spills some McDreamy tea, revealing how Patrick Dempsey was used as leverage against her in salary negotiations “for years”. (“At one point, I asked for $5,000 more than him just on principle, because the show is Grey’s Anatomy and I’m Meredith Grey. They wouldn’t give it to me.”) It’s such a refreshingly blunt, entertaining and empowering read on recognizing your worth and fighting for it.

Kim Kardashian is a new mom! She brought her newborn daughter home.

Justin Timberlake said he ‘absolutely’ made peace with Janet Jackson after the Super Bowl incident. Maybe that’s true, but he certainly didn’t do it publicly, did he?

Selena Gomez’s mother says she tried to convince her not work with Woody Allen, but it “fell on deaf ears.”

Timothée Chalamet donated his salary from a Woody Allen film to #TimesUp and other charities. I’m actually surprised that he didn’t seem to get as much blow back for working with him as others have.

-Meanwhile, Dylan Farrow talked about her desire to take Woody Allen down. “Why shouldn’t I be angry? Why shouldn’t I be hurt? Why shouldn’t I feel some sort of outrage that after all these years — being ignored and disbelieved and tossed aside?”

Arnold Schwarzenegger says if he and the cast had known about Eliza Dushku‘s claim while filming True Lies, he says, “you bet your ass all of us would have done something.”

-Meanwhile, two more women have accused Joel Kramer of misconduct.

Catherine Zeta-Jones spoke out about Michael Douglaspreemptive sexual harassment denial.

-In news that is no way shocking, James Franco’s Twitter stripper movie is now on hold.

Paul Scheer made fun of a romance novel’s cover and the genre’s fans called him out on it — so he ended up reading it, live-tweeting it and loving it. I adore this story.

-I don’t watch James Spader‘s TV show, but I will watch him tell crazy stories on talk shows.

-A Harry Potter fan-fiction film about Voldemort’s origin has over 4 million views.

-American Crime Story: Versace is getting great reviews — but it is nothing like The People vs OJ Simpson.

-Speaking of TV shows that are getting great reviews, everyone’s loving CW’s Black Lightning.  I was really taken by last night’s pilot (which got good ratings) and I hope they can sustain it.

Leslie Jones reveals that she wasn’t faking it during that SNL skit with James Franco when it looked like she was trying not to puke.

Gabrielle Union’s new movie seems like Panic Room meets John Wick and I’m HERE FOR IT!

Armie Hammer Really Knows How To Wear Sweaters

armie hammer GQ call me by your name

Armie Hammer covers British GQ (as does his Call Me By Your Name costar Timothée Chalamet), and everyone is drooling over this pic of him in a sweater. After seeing him at TIFF I have a lot of conflicting feelings about him. He’s super dreamy IRL, but he also did a panel discussion with Chalamet and his behaviour was…not my favourite.

-Move over, GOOP. Shonda Rhimes just launched her own lifestyle site.

Elsie Hewitt, a 21-year-old model, filed a civil lawsuit yesterday against actor Ryan Phillippe for allegedly kicking, punching and throwing her down the stairs after an argument on July 4. His camp is telling People that it was Hewitt who attacked him after he broke up with her.

-Meanwhile Philippe’s ex-girlfriend had an interesting tweet

-Congrats to Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul and wife Lauren, who are expecting their first child.  Brace yourself for even more gushy social media posts (which I find weirdly endearing, tbh).

-The guy who cast most of the CW shows says the network originally wanted Ashley Olsen and Rumer Willis to play Blair & Serena on Gossip Girl.

-I like that Prince William is comfortable enough about balding to crack jokes about it.

Jada Pinkett Smith is shooting down Leah Remini‘s claims that she’s a Scientologist, tweeting “I have chanted and meditated in some of the most magnificent temples on earth… but I am not a Buddhist. I have studied Dianetics, and appreciate the merits of Study Tech… but I am not a Scientologist.”

Elisabeth Moss wrote “f*ck off” on the bottom of her Emmy shoes. Cute — but still doesn’t make me like her outfit.

Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman politely struggling over who gets to hold the Emmy is giving me life!

-I really like this piece about the conflicting emotions of being a Louis CK fan. It took me way too long to disconnect from him too.

-So Jennifer Lawrence is the type to shout “we’re going down” when her flight hits turbulence. Sounds like she’d be swell to sit next to…

Ansel Elgort‘s new movie looks like it might have a white saviour problem.  Not cool, Hollywood.
