Spice Girls Reunite to “Explore Some Incredible Opportunities”

-I’m definitely feeling reboot fatigue — but a Spice Girls reunion? Yeah, I’ll take that.

Rose McGowan got into a shouting match with a trans woman at a book event. The actress then claimed that she was “verbally assaulted for two full minutes by an actor” and has since cancelled all future book events, including her appearance at a Toronto Indigo. She’s certainly been through a lot and has come out the other side which is commendable, but it’s also become pretty clear that she might not be the best person to lead this movement.

Justin Timberlake dances with Jessica Biel in a log cabin in his new music video. Is the clip’s lack any sort of chemistry weirding anyone else out?

-Also, the reviews are not good. From the New York Times: “We are now approaching the 12th year of the national delusion that Justin Timberlake remains an essential pop star.”

-Annihilation, starring Natalie Portman and Gina Rodriguez, is being released in theaters on Feb 23. Have you heard much about it? Probably not. That’s because the rollout has been crazy messy.

The Good Place finale changed everything. Again. With lots of nods to Lost. (There’s a debate raging about what the finale really meant.)

-Also, someone captured Eleanor‘s Google search auto-fills, and they are amazing.

-High-ranking women in the music industry are calling for Neil Portnow, the Recording Academy’s president, to resign. “We do not have to sing louder, jump higher or be nicer to prove ourselves.”

-Meanwhile, the Grammys announced a new task force to address its own biases against women.

Jenna Dewan Tatum shared a flirtatious audition video from when she met Channing Tatum on the Step Up set.

Seth Meyers went day drinking with Kelly Clarkson and it was absolutely delightful. (“No, I’m just kidding. She’s dead.” killed me. And then he serenaded her and I actually died….)

-Black Panther is getting rave reviews — and so is the soundtrack Kendrick Lamar curated, too.

-A California woman was reported missing by her family — but she was actually just competing on The Bachelor. Yeah, I wouldn’t want to admit that to my family either.

Meryl Streep, Will Smith, Bono, Taylor Swift, Tom Hanks and pretty much every celebrity wished Ellen a happy 60th birthday,  and Jennifer Aniston made a surprise appearance.

-Also Aniston is back to teasing a possible Friends reunion. Who wants this?!

-As Lainey mentioned yesterday, Jamie Dornan actually seems to be having a bit of fun on this Fifty Shades press tour.  He showed off his unfortunate “bouncy walk” to James Corden.

-This video on “if The Flash were honest” made me laugh a lot.
