–Zoë Kravitz goes completely unretouched (and looks phenomenal) on her new Harper’s Bazaar cover. She talks about previous magazine Photoshop experiences: “I did a cover of a magazine once and noticed that my eyes were this beautiful hazel-green color, which would be great, but they’re not that color! Little things like that. I’ve seen my hands be changed before. It makes you think, “What’s wrong with my hands? Or my eyes?”
-So, despite those reports, Hailey Baldwin is denying that she and Justin Bieber got married this week.
–Ariana Grande posted a very sweet IG video of Mac Miller, saying “I’m so sorry I couldn’t fix it or take your pain away.”
–Lady Gaga reveals what she thinks is her #1 look ever in Vogue’s 73 questions. Spoiler alert: it wasn’t the meat dress. (Sidenote: is this the most stationary 73Q segment ever? I wanna see her house!)
-In a recent interview, Bradley Cooper addressed the news that A Star Is Born producer Jon Peters has been sued by at least five former employees for sexual harassment.
-This interview with TATBILB’s Noah Centineo (“the best thirst architect the internet’s ever seen”) is great. I LOVE that the author made him recreate the pocket spin with her!
–Meaghan Markle is reportedly having trouble figuring out which of her friends she can trust, while her former Suits costars are struggling with being asked about her all the time. (I get it; we saw Patrick Adams hanging out at TIFF and it was hard not to bug him about it.)
–Cardi B hits back at Nicki Minaj’s payola claims. (Is payola still a thing? Radio plays don’t seem to matter much these days…)
-Modern Family will kill off a main character in Season 10. Wait, Modern Family is still on?!?
-God, I love that Candice Patton of The Flash is calling out DC/Funko for releasing figurines for only the show’s male characters. Even Wally West got one? Come on.
-First Brandon Routh‘s wife, now Stephen Amell’s wife. If you want a role on the CW, just marry one of its stars.
-For reasons I can’t begin to comprehend, the New York Review of Books let Jian Ghomeshi write a self-pitying, self-pardoning reflection on his ouster from Canadian media. (I love that everyone is circulating a link to this PDF instead of the actual article itself to avoid contributing to its pageviews.) It is so tone-deaf that it has to be seen to be believed (it begins with a woman *apologizing to him* for bringing up what he did, and ends with him congratulating himself for meeting a woman on a train and not trying to hook up with her). Many people much smarter than I am have pointed out the piece’s problems, but I think my issue with his article — and Louis C.K.’s return and all of these comebacks and handwringing about their reputations/future — is that not one of these men are actually acknowledging that they’ve contemplated the hurt they’ve caused their victims and/or learned from it. Dan Harmon‘s apology and subsequent actions is the only guy that comes to mind.
-Meanwhile, my favourite reaction is Roxanne Gay’s tweet: “I wonder which publication will give a victim of sexual harassment or violence 7,000 words to discuss her or his experience.”
–Julie Chen signed off Big Brother last night as “Julie Chen Mooves” so…yeah.
–John Goodman and Vera Farmiga star in the Captive State trailer.
