**NOTE: I”m on vacation for the next week so no updates until May 30th. Behave yourselves, kittens!***
-Damn Ariana Grande for continuing to do super feminist interviews and making me kinda love her. My world is askew.
-Not making nice with fellow pop stars in Demi Lovato in this new interview, in which she talks about Taylor Swift: “There are women that I don’t get along with, and that’s fine. My thing is, don’t brand yourself a feminist if you don’t do the work. I have an immense amount of respect for women like Lena Dunham…or Beyonce, who make amazing political statements through their work.”
–Kanye West went on an epic 8-minute rant about, well, everything on Ellen this week.
-We have now reached peak Leonardo DiCaprio.
-Speaking of odd talk show appearances, Dax Shepard told Jimmy Kimmel a story about jerking off into a plastic cup while in traffic after getting a vasectomy. Remind me again how private he and Kristen Bell are….
-I love how a bunch of publications are tearing down the men who are butthurt about the new Ghostbusters. Esquire’s piece is my favourite mic drop. Preach!
-Super private couple Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser dared to have baby a while ago and not tell us. But how are we supposed to judge her post-baby bod now?! (Also, I have a weird story about Kartheiser from when I was an extra on a movie. It involves spaghetti. I’ve already said too much.)
-Now it makes sense why Neighbors 2 is being praised by critics for its feminist slant; Lena Dunham consulted on the script.
-Here are the new shows you’re probably going to want to avoid this fall, judging by this week’s upfront presentations.
-Speaking of the upfronts, today was the CW’s turn. Supergirl is staying on Mondays (but how much they’ll get to use Calista Flockhart remains a question), and they’ve already confirmed a Supergirl, Arrow, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow mega-crossover (ugh). Weirdly, the new show that seemed to get the critics most hyped is their Archie adaptation Riverdale, which is being compared to Twin Peaks. Here are some of the new show trailers.
-When is Kate Hudson going to stop talking about her killer body? Just give me some sort of timetable I can look forward to.
-Here’s the trailer for Kristen Stewart’s Personal Shopper, which just debuted at Cannes.
