–Taraji P. Henson looks amazing on the cover of InStyle. (The subscribers’ cover is even better.) In the interview, she says execs tried to convince her that she wouldn’t do well internationally: “Hollywood executives would tell me that I don’t have fans all the way over there… Then we go to Paris, and it’s standing room only in a room with 1,500 seats. I cried…You can’t let people tell you shit.” (I really wish they would have asked her about whatever the hell happened to torpedo the marketing campaign for Proud Mary. That movie was inexplicably, unforgivably, intentionally buried.)
-New court documents revealed that Kesha and Lady Gaga exchanged text messages about how “mean” Katy Perry was being. Gaga then took to Twitter to explain: “These are old texts. We’ve matured, gotten over the past, love each other & share deep respect. Katy is my friend and is truly a kind soul. End of story.”
-Grande’s new video is overshadowing Miley Cyrus’ latest, which tackles heavy issues like gun control and police brutality.
-On Watch What Happens Live, Megan Fox admitted to hooking up with Transformers costar Shia LaBeouf.
-People who weren’t paying attention seemed surprised that Netflix cancelled Daredevil, but seeing what happened with Luke Cage and Iron Fist, it’s clear they’re getting out of the Marvel business. Everyone is expecting the new seasons of Jessica Jones and Punisher will be their last. Don’t expect them to move over to Disney’s new streaming service, either. And even if Marvel is hinting that we’ll still see more Daredevil in the future, it’s likely it will be a whole new take.
–Jennifer Garner toasted Bradley Cooper by reminding him of all his middling TV appearances — including on Alias. (“It wasn’t until I heard him speaking French to a background artist on set one day that I went ‘wait a minute, is Bradley handsome?!'”)
-I love that Grownish is recreating the title credits from A Different World.
-Facebook Watch has added Buffy, Angel and Firefly to their streaming service. Dammit, that’s smart.
–Connie Britton is on a new TV show that’s doing well, and I don’t have time to watch it. That’s where we are in this era of peak TV.
-Is Prince Charles‘ birthday the real reason behind all the negative stories coming out about Prince Harry and Prince William lately?
-Yikes. Prince Andrew has been linked to the Jeffrey Epstein scandal involving underage girls.
–Cardi B and Nicki Minaj are still at it.
-I really want to see The Favourite, but calling it a prequel to Phantom Thread does not to it any favours if you ask me.
–Roma will be streaming on Netflix soon, but if you’re in one of the few cities where it’s getting a theatrical release, you should see it on the big screen. Critics are falling over themselves to praise this one.
–Diane Kruger, Steve Carell and Eiza González star in the new Welcome to Marwen trailer.
