–Ellen Page was articulate and passionate last night on the Colbert Show, where she asked viewers to “connect the dots” between homophobic rhetoric and physical violence. “I’m lucky to have this time and this privilege to say this. This needs to f*cking stop.” Also, good on Stephen Colbert for just stepping back and letting her talk.
-Meanwhile, Empire star Jussie Smollett has given his first statement since being attacked: “My body is strong but my soul is stronger.”
–Gisele Bundchen opened up on her past relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio: “Was I alone in wanting to do some serious soul-searching while he stayed the same? In the end, unfortunately, the answer was yes.”
–Adam Levine canceled the press conference before the Super Bowl, because holding one would have required Maroon 5 to answer uncomfortable questions. He then gave a wishy-washy defense of his involvement: “No one thought about it more than I did. No one put more thought and love into this than I did…I spoke to many people; most importantly though, I silenced all the noise and listened to myself, and made my decision about how I felt.” Well, as long as he listened to HIMSELF, we’re all good, I guess.
–Kit Harington let it slip to his wife Rose Leslie how Game of Thrones ends — and says she stopped talking to him “for days.” Spoiler repercussions are real, yo.
–Micheal B Jordan might be in Black Panther 2…somehow.
–Christina Aguilera serenaded unsuspecting donut shop customers on Kimmel’s show.
-Netflix has renewed Sex Education for a second season.
-Oh god. There’s rumblings that the CW is considering a Gossip Girl reboot.
–Busy Philipps admits she “always hated her stomach” as she celebrates her unretouched Aerie ad. (Her stomach looks awesome — which isn’t surprising since her IG Stories are 70% about her planking.)
-Google Assistant continues with the Home Alone trend, this time with Joe Pesci.
-Netflix’s Russian Doll (starring Natasha Lyonne and exec produced by Amy Poehler) hits Netflix today and it’s been a while since I’ve seen critics so universally embrace a new show. Variety says it’s “spiky, funny, devastating and downright bizzare,” Rolling Stone calls Lyonne a “revelation,” Vox calls it terrific and twisted, AV Club says it’s more rewarding than any puzzle-box show, Vulture calls it a “brilliant, surreal show about women in power,” The Hollywood Reporter says it starts good, then gets better, and The New York Times says the main character describes herself as “if Andrew Dice Clay and the little girl from Brave made a baby.”
–Olivia Wilde takes down abusers in the trailer for A Vigilante.
-Hobbs & Shaw are an ass-kicking odd couple in the Fast & Furious spin-off’s first ridiculous but also kinda great trailer.
