Are Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston Trolling Us?

-There’s a theory gaining steam that the Taylor Swift/Tom Hiddleston thing is actually performance art for a new music video, and¬†the latest photos nearly have me convinced. Like, he wore¬†a I Heart TS tank top this weekend? For reals? There’s *got* to be something more going on. The thing is though, TSwift is a smart businessperson…and this is not smart. How much longer can whatever this is go on before her fans feel like they’ve been let in on the joke and not feel like the butt of it instead? And even if this is all a big trolling experiment, why in the world would Hiddleston¬†go along with it? This isn’t going to land him Bond.¬†Night Manager reinforced¬†his reputation as a¬†suave Brit — and he’s destroyed it in a matter of weeks.

-Whatever is going on, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are in on it.

Ellie Kemper would like strangers to stop groping her belly bump.

-Speaking of Office stars and babies, John Kraniski and Emily Blunt had another daughter, whom they named Violet.

-Woah. Serial podcast subject Adnan Syed, who had been convicted of murder, is getting a new trial.

Jennifer Garner reunited with Bradley Cooper at Versace fashion show in Paris and it gave me all the Alias feels!

-Meanwhile, Bradley was spotted in Paris with Irina Shayk.

-Every time I think about skipping the gym, Daisy Ridley posts an insane workout video. Get out of my head and let me lounge on my couch, Rey!

-Why the hell is Variety, of all places, posting bullshit, bullying articles examining Renee Zellweger’s face?!

-Meanwhile, THR is writing excellent, thought-provoking articles about why the Daniel Craig/Halle Berry L.A. riots film is a bad idea.

-God bless this People writer who quit her job and then released the Earth-scorching email she sent on her way out.

-Logic boner: Leonardo DiCaprio wants his L.A. friends to fly halfway across the world to fight global warming.

-The Toast is officially toast. Let’s pour one out and revisit my favourite ‘If X Was Your Boyfriend’: the John Cho edition.

-This American Life’s “Tell Me I’m Fat” episode is so worth a listen. Lindy West, Elna Baker, and Roxane Gay all talk about body¬†acceptance.

-It’s blind item reveal day on CDAN. Even though I take that site with a giant grain/salt lick of salt, it’s always a good time, especially when he talks about the B-listers who get hired to be yacht girls.

-I actually really liked last night’s Preacher, but¬†is one good fight sequence enough to redeem a show? I made that mistake with Daredevil.

Anna Kendrick is trying to get that Marvel cheddar.

Christie Brinkley has literally turned into an old person yelling at kids to get off her lawn, and I freakin’ love it.

Fergie‘s new video got over 10 million views this weekend. It’s being celebrated for being so empowering and teaching us that mothers are still f*ckable, which…um… ok.

Victoria and David Beckham celebrated their 17th anniversary with some very sweet Instagram posts.

-There are people out there that want Jesse Williams fired from Grey’s Anatomy. Apparently, there are also people out there who don’t know who runs that show.

-I really liked this article on Orange Is The New Black and the critique of empathy. (Sidenote: I saw the cast was at Toronto Pride this weekend and they looked like they were having a blast.)

-Today, we all learned that John Cena is awesome.
