–Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes look so damn good together that I don’t even care if it’s fake at this point. Here’s my new straight-out-of-fanfic headcanon: they were set up by their publicists to generate buzz for their collab, but after spending so much time together they’ve both actually developed feelings, and now it’s turning into the real deal. Don’t take this away from me with logic!
–Taylor Swift‘s fans are so good at deciphering clues that if I ever get accused of a murder I’m going to hire them as my defense. Now they’re convinced they’ve pieced together clues that prove she’s going to marry her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.
-If this little promo clip is any indication, Kelly Clarkson‘s new talk show is going to be adorabs.
–Kevin Feige is doing god’s work by gifting us with yet another story about how Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t seem to know much about the MCU. At the Marvel Studios 10th-anniversary photo, he says she didn’t know why Sam Jackson was there. “The other actors [jumped] in saying, ‘What are you talking about? He’s Nick Fury! You’ve been in movies with him!'”
-This deep dive into the Netflix lobbying machine is fascinating.
–Sean Astin is confused about why photos of him cuddling an otter went viral, but he’s rolling with it.
-I usually hate the way Armie Hammer uses Twitter, but I will accept this.
-I finally got around to watching the 90201 revival — and I kinda loved it? Which was surprising, but not as surprising as checking Twitter to see what other people thought and seeing so many angry tweets about how the cast was playing fictionalized versions of themselves instead of it being a straight-up reboot. They were pretty clear about that in the promotion, no?
–Tommy Lee is making a lot of sense. My world is askew.
-Succession season 2 debuts this weekend on HBO, and critics are loving it. I forgot how much I love this show.
–Idris Elba is always charming, even when he’s dying from eating hot wings.
-This is a fascinating thread about how each episode of the Simpsons is dubbed into two different versions for French markets: a Quebec French version, and a France French version.
-This makes it sound like HBO was more than ready to get rid of the Game of Thrones creators, which frankly, I get.
-Jason Momoa is standing strong, saying he can’t film Aquaman 2 over his protest of construction in Hawaii.
-Here’s the first trailer for the Jason Bourne-inspired TV series Treadstone.
