Mariah Carey Gets Complex


Mariah Carey is posing hard on the cover of Complex magazine, in which she talks about her divorce from Nick Cannon and continues to try to convince us that she’ll eventually marry James Packer.

-A man slapped Justin Timberlake in the face at a celebrity golf tourney. We’ve all been there, sir.

-This interview with the drunken cast of The Vampire Diaries is a mess. I love it.

-This is a fascinating look inside the troubled production of Baz Luhrmann‘s The Get Down, Netflix’s most expensive series to date ($120 million!!!).  Lexi Alexander tweeted about this story with the frog sipping tea, so now my curiosity is peaked!

Mila Kunis tried to explain the plot of Jupiter Ascending and failed miserably.

-Guys, what happened to UnREAL? Like, really. Last night’s episode was even messier than last week’s. On the plus side, I’m happy for the Extra Hot Great podcast because they now have another “she’s a reporter willing to sleep around to get the scoop!” trope to skewer.

-This is really, really interesting stuff: a writer/producer of The 100 (and a bunch of other shows) has released a bunch of his TV pitches, scripts and outlines for download to help young writers see how they are done.

Demi Lovato’s DNC performance was hella awkward, according to these GIFs.

-Speaking of the DNC, it resulted in an emergency edition of Shade Court on Jezebel!

-Excellent casting news! Hamilton’s Renée Elise Goldsberry will play Henrietta Lacks in HBO’s film adaptation of Immortal Life. a fascinating book.

Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel went to ‘court-ordered’ couples counseling last night.

-In other late night clips, Allison Janney was a delight on Colbert.

Pine. Evans. Hemsworth. Who is winning The Chris Wars? The Ringer investigates.

Dr. Dre was handcuffed and cited outside his Malibu home after he was accused of pointing a gun at a guy who was blocking his driveway.

-Replacing family photos at your mom’s house with ones of Steve Buscemi might be the best idea ever.

-I really liked this article on how Taylor Swift needs protection from online trolls — but so do the rest of us.

-Today’s TIFF announcement has me stoked for this year’s fest, especially Catfight, La La Land, Manchester By the Sea, and Snowden. I’m really surprised Girl on a Train and Ang Lee’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk weren’t included, though.

-Meanwhile, The Girl On The Train got a steamy new trailer.

Anna Gunn goes ballistic on a mansplainer in a new clip from Equity Film.

-Despite all the trailers that dropped this week because of SDCC, the Trainspotting one is the only one that made me squeal.

-The Office Christmas Party trailer stars Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman and oh, a little someone by the name of KATE MCKINNON!
