–Maroon 5 released their music video for their Cardi B collab “Girls Like You” on Wednesday, recruiting an all-star lineup of women to make cameos, including familiar famous faces like Gal Gadot, Jennifer Lopez, Tiffany Haddish, Millie Bobby Brown, Camila Cabello, Mary J. Blige, Elizabeth Banks, Sarah Silverman, Rita Ora, Aly Raisman, Beanie Feldstein, Chloe Kim and Ashley Graham, as well as activists like Angy Rivera and Franchesca Ramsey.
–Justin Theroux and Emma Stone are still hanging out, but friends insist they are just friends. Whew! It looks like he might be getting cozy with Spiderman: Homecoming actress Laura Harrier (who, despite playing a teenager in that movie, is actually 28).
-According to TMZ, Drake has been financially supporting Sophie Brussaux, the mother of his rumored child, to the point that she lives “comfortably.” The source (who is clearly from Drake’s camp) added that he “plans to take a DNA test to figure out any possible future legalities” and that “he feels there’s a slight chance the kid is his.” (If he’s giving her money, I’m guessing he thinks the chances are more than “slight.”)
-Meanwhile, in a new interview Pusha T claims Drake’s upcoming Adidas campaign was supposed to be the “unveiling” of Drake’s son Adonis, and it was to be called “Adidon.” That’s … kinda gross.
-Also, Drake says the blackface photo was from his acting days from to draw attention to typecasting which frankly, I believe.
–Nikki Bella and John Cena are back together, a month and a half after calling off their wedding.
-I like that GQ’s profileon Silicon Valley’s awkward star Zach Woods basically boils down to one line: “This guy fucks.”
-In a segment on her satirical show “Full Frontal” on Wednesday, Samantha Bee referred to Ivanka Trump as a “feckless c***” sparking outrage, including from TBS’ sister network CNN. Wait, I thought this sort of thing was just “locker room talk”? Bee has since apologized (but not before Sally Field got out the best tweet ever).
-Did Michael Moore just give a hint about his next documentary? He tweeted: “I know Roseanne. And I know Trump. And they are about to rue the day they knew me.”
–Jessica Alba is VERY 80s on the cover of InStyle. I don’t like it.
-The Ocean’s 8 press tour hasn’t even kicked into full gear and I’m already sick of how many times the cast has been asked about catfights and ego clashes on set. Do you think the Ocean’s 11 cast got those questions?
-I love that Ryan Murphy‘s Poseis getting such good reviews.
-Sorry Jason Bateman, but I no longer care.
-I like this piece about how the Bateman and Roseanne backlash means that we might be entering the reckoning phaseof the #MeToo movement.
-I’m so glad that the The Americans finale seems to be universally beloved. It might actually be one of my fave series finales ever. I also feel like it’s an end of an era in terms of TV coverage; I’m not sure there’s another show that is so universally embraced by the critical community that you can watch the finale and then be treated to such smart, insightful discourse the next day. Some articles I loved today came from NPR, New Yorker, Slate, The Ringer, and Vulture. Also, this deep dive into the finale’s best scene is worth reading after you watch it.
–Chris Pratt’s 5-year-old son is not impressed by his dad’s acting abilities.
-The internet is loving that Mick Jagger leaves dorky dad comments on his teenage son’s Instagram posts.
-Well, this is disappointing. EDM musician Pogo says he hates gay people and cheered at the Pulse massacre.
–Carrie Coon had the pick of TV shows to choose from and she went with … season two of The Sinner? Huh.
–Ariana Grande posted a cutesy kissy photo with Pete Davidson in IG.
–Amal Clooney was a guest at the royal wedding, and now she’s reportedly helping Meghan Markleadjust to life in London.
–Morgan Neville’s new documentary on Mr. Rogers Won’t You Be My Neighbor is getting rave reviews, but I can barely make it through the trailer without tearing up.
-The trailer for Jennifer Garner’s new movie Peppermint(by the director who did Taken) is giving me Alias vibes and I have been waiting for her to do something like this FOR SO LONG!
