Introducing Caitlyn Jenner


Bruce Jenner has landed on Vanity Fair after the transition news and introduced the world to Caitlyn Jenner in a beautiful cover, photographed by Annie Leibovitz. (She also has a new Twitter account, which smashed Obama’s record as the fastest person ever to reach 1M followers.) I love how the reveal was done in such a classy, refreshingly non-trashy manner (the exact opposite of how that family usually operates). I also love that she could have gone with Kaitlyn, but chose Caitlyn.

-But what I really, really love is that Caitlyn just stole all of Kim Kardashian’s baby news thunder. (Kim really keeps trying, tho.)

Tracy Morgan‘s emotional first interview since his car crash last year is a hard watch.

-Well, this isn’t good: Mila Kunis‘ stalker has escaped a mental institution.

Jaden Smith went to prom with the girl who plays Rue in The Hunger Games. They both wore dresses.

-Wow, Vince Vaughn hid his crazy well.

-I’ve fallen behind on Outlander and the Twitter outrage that exploded last night after the finale convinced me that I’m not going to catch up because I just can’t stomach another brutal depiction of rape on TV this season, but this is a very well-reasoned exploration about the value (or lack of value) of those scenes.

-Speaking of last night’s TV, at least Game of Thrones was less rape-y and more meme-able than usual. It’s *almost* as if the show doesn’t need to rely on sexual violence to have its best episode of the season.

-Also, Danish actress Birgitte Hjort Sørensen was the best thing about last night’s GoT. It wasn’t until the episode ended that I realized she also played the lead singer of the rival group in Pitch Perfect 2.

Ellie Goulding and Lorde partied with Katy Perry. Does Taylor Swift know about this?!

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin were photographed together again, so that’s still happening.

-I couldn’t watch this video of George Clooney dancing at a U2 concert on the off chance that he has dad moves which eradicate all of my fuzzy feelings for him.

-Also, George‘s rep denied his reported comments on baby plans. I’m impressed that they actually managed to pull together a coherent statement instead of just responding with this:

-Did Nicki Minaj just announce her split from Meek Mill on Instagram? That is both cold and awesome.

Mindy Kaling says she’s looking for a new BFF. Sign me up!

-Also, I love her new haircut. (And as potential BFF material, I’m totally willing to give her the honest truth about these sorts of things…)

Jessica Chastain would like to remind you that she’s not in Jurassic World.

Ian Somerhalder apologized (sorta) for that video that came out asking his fans to leave him alone.

Lindsay Lohan has a new situation boyfriend.

-Speaking of the JW press tour, Chris Pratt showed off his awesome early headshots — but Melissa McCarthy has him beat.

-I’m glad to see that the new season of Orange Is the New Black is getting good early reviews.

-In other TV news, UnREAL debuts tonight and Vulture calls it “one of the most aggressively interesting dramas in recent memory.” I really liked the pilot.

-Man, they are just going to run the 50 Shades franchise into the ground, huh?

-I’m not a fan of The Big Bang Theory but this scholarship fund the show just set up is pretty boss.

Tina Fey and Amy Schumer made out at the Peabody Awards last night. (Or, as Tina said, she Madonna’d her.)

-This dog stripping sketch might be the first Amy Schumer bit of the season that I don’t love. But she makes up for it with her wedding objection sketch. The button on that one kills me.

Haley Atwell says the highlight of her life is when she improvised the chest grab she copped with Chris Evans in Captain America, and they kept it in the movie.

-The Critics’ Choice Awards were also last night. Man, imagine if the Emmy nominations read like this list? I also love that the show had gorgeous fan art for the stars to pose in front of.

-A family road trip comedy seems like a weird career turn for Rosamund Pike after Gone Girl, but this is kind of cute.
