–Zendaya covers the June 2019 issue of Vogue, which also means she gets the 73 questions treatment. I like that she restricted the whole thing to her backyard instead of the usual house tour, but is so charming that it doesn’t seem like she’s shutting you out in any way.
–Zendaya is also on the cover of Paper, where she says she has no desire to give up her music career for acting.
-I literally couldn’t contemplate winning a lunch with George and Amal Clooney. I think I’d have to study international affairs for six months to feel remotely qualified to open my mouth around them, and the whole thing would stress me out. But the video of George talking about it is super cute.
-This is awful: Miley Cyrus was trying to leave her hotel with Liam Hemsworth after a festival appearance in Barcelona and as she was fighting her way through the crowds to their car a dude grabbed her and tried to kiss her.
–Tiffany Haddish says she’s retiring her white Alexander McQueen gown after wearing it to five events. I’m gonna miss it.
–Kevin Spacey made a surprise appearance at his groping case hearing today.
-I liked Netflix’s Always Be My Maybe, but the very best parts involved Keanu Reeves. This intro scene is already so iconic that there’s already a Twitter account devoted to putting different songs behind it.
-Meanwhile, Keanu is reportedly in talks to join Angelina Jolie in Marvel’s The Eternals.
-It’s cute that Marc Anthony seems to get along so well with JLo and ARod.
-Don’t look to Joshua Jackson to start beating the Dawson’s Creek reunion drum. He said: “I had a great time. Mostly. I had a good time. 19 to 24, everything’s difficult, you’re all mixed up, you don’t know your place in the world yet. I would not go back there, no.”
-Congrats to Jay Z, who just became hip hop’s first billionaire.
-One of my fave TV writers @tvoti just came out as trans and wrote about it in relation to The Handsmaid’s Tale and it’s extremely powerful stuff.
-I gave up on it because of too much TV + little interest in watching any TV lately, but I dig this justification for why Whiskey Cavalier deserved a second season.
-I did force myself to start Good Omens this weekend because I adored the book — and it turns out the show is equally fantastic. The clincher for me was episode 3’s cold open, which only came together because Neil Gaiman realized he needed to give David Tennant and Michael Sheen more to do. It shows the two mains meeting at various major events in history, including Noah’s Ark, Jesus’ crucifixion, the first showing of Hamlet in the Globe, the French Revolution, WWII and more. Gaiman said: “When I got to Episode 3, I went, ‘Oh, Crowley and Aziraphale aren’t in this 50-page chunk,’ so I thought, ‘Well, I’ll do a mini-movie of Crowley and Aziraphale through time, and it will give Michael and David something to do.'”
-Also as I was watching it I saw someone tweet “Oh, this is a love story!” and it totally changed how I saw the show. Michael Sheen agrees.
-There is a very real possibility that for the first time ever, there will not be a single comedy from ABC, CBS, NBC or FOX among the best comedy series Emmy nominees.
-On the slim chance that you’re not totally done hearing about Game of Thrones, this is a very good video explaining how foreshadowing shouldn’t be misconstrued as character development when it came to Daenerys.
-Apple TV still hasn’t revealed when its streaming service is coming or how much it will cost, but they did drop their first trailer today. It’s for Ron Moore‘s alt-history space race series For All Mankind.
-I went to a movie this weekend and the Lion King trailer played before it, and I was like “how could they not use Beyonce‘s voice in this?!?” But today’s new trailer rectifies that, with her Nala character finally making an appearance.
–Christian Bale and Matt Damon burn rubber in the First Ford v. Ferrari trailer.
