-When are fashion editors going to realize that putting people in headdresses during photo shoots is a terrible idea? Pharrell Williams has apologized for his Elle cover.

-Speaking of stepping in it, Jonah Hill’s apology tour continues. He got choked up about those homophobic comments he made during appearances on both Fallon and GMA. As crappy as his behaviour was (and reportedly can be), at least he’s not shying away from it or blaming the stresses of fame.

-In other news about celebrities being on the defensive, another video of Justin Bieber making racist jokes has surfaced. It’s obviously terrible, but he’s so, so young in it.

Elisabeth Moss’ spin on overalls almost makes that stupid trend acceptable. Almost.

-Have Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart broken up? Because when even People mag can’t put a good spin on it, there’s trouble.

-Meanwhile, Jenny McCarthy is taking potshots at JLo over Twitter. This won’t end well.

-Here are the five people who “get it,” according to Rihanna. You’re not one of them.

Peter Dinklage‘s high school mullet was a thing of beauty.

Mischa Barton‘s life sounds really sad. On the plus side, people are still paying her to put that sad life on display.

-The Kardashians continue to breed. The one they call “Khloe” is reportedly expecting her third kidlet.

-Speaking of babies, Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko have confirmed reports that their first child is on the way.

-This is the best news I’ve heard all day: Gossip Girl’s Zuzanna Szadkowski will be on the next season of Girls. Dorota!

Eva Green doesn’t mind that we’ve all seen her boobs.

Jared Leto is a venture capitalist now. Let’s hope that job description involves lots of leaning.

-Thank god for the internet. I had lots of confused feelings about that attempted rape scene in the most recent episode of Louie, and am glad everyone’s talking it out. But it still disturbs me that the knee-jerk reaction on Twitter seemed to be that Louis CK can do no wrongI guess we’ll see if there’s any fallout next week.

-On a much lighter note, here’s everything his Hungarian girlfriend said to him, translated.

-It’s probably not a good sign for the TV industry that an article about this season’s winners and losers is mostly filled with losers.

-They’re not all losers. Game of Thrones’ ratings now rival The Walking Dead with 18 million this season.

Robert Downey Jr. is producing an ’80s rehab drama. I like all of those words.

Dina Lohan got her driver’s license suspended yesterday, but she’s not going to jail because the universe sucks.

-Early reviews of the new season of Orange Is the New Black are glowing.

Amanda Seyfried showcased her rapping skills during a recent interview with the BBC. Seth MacFarlane‘s embarrassed expression is all of us right now.

-A movie I saw at TIFF last year starring Toni Collette is out this week. It’s probably a bad sign that I totally forgot I’d seen it until about halfway through this review.

50 Cent‘s Reddit AMA was surprisingly funny. He blamed that terrible baseball pitch on  a muscle injury “from excessive masturbation” and shot down Aziz Ansari’s grapefruit story.

Here’s an excerpt from J.K. Rowling’s second detective novel, The Silkworm.

Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum‘s Jupiter Ascending has been abruptly pushed back from its July release date to the movie wasteland that’s Feb 2015. That’s not a good sign. Too bad; the trailer looked intriguing.

-Speaking of trailers, Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning play Very Good Girls in their latest movie.
