-The trailer for Taylor Swift‘s upcoming Netflix documentary has dropped and yeah, I’ll watch this.
-In her upcoming memoir, Jessica Simpson reveals that she was sexually abused as a child by the daughter of a family friend and later turned to self-medicating: “I was killing myself with all the drinking and pills.” She also says her drinking escalated during her relationship with John Mayer: “I constantly worried that I wasn’t smart enough for him. He was so clever and treated conversation like a friendly competition that he had to win…My anxiety would spike and I would pour another drink. It was the start of me relying on alcohol to mask my nerves.”
–Terry Jones, a founding member of Monty Python and a beloved comedian, screenwriter, film director, poet, historian and author, has died at 77.
-A critic detailed his experience after he said that SNL was no longer funny — and Michael Che spent the next few months mocking him for it.
-This is a lovely interview with Schitt’s Creek stars Dan Levy and Annie Murphy. She talks about showing up to one of his fancy brunches with a bucket of KFC (“Not that that’s what I connect with brunch. I just thought everyone likes KFC secretly deep down”), while Levy talks about the giant billboard to promote the show in LA that features him and Noah Reid kissing (“That takes a team effort because there are not a lot of networks that would put an image of two men kissing on a two-story billboard on Sunset Boulevard. Why? For fear of retaliation from, like, One Million Moms or some dumb hate group? I can’t. We’re fearful of the wrong people, ultimately”).
-Speaking of Dan Levy, he and Mary Steenburgen were just added to the cast of a gay rom-com starring Kristen Stewart and McKenzie Davis. God, give me all of that!
-Speaking of the Schitt’s Creek cast, this moderator’s exchange with Catherine O’Hara was so very Moira-like I guffawed.
-The full name of Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden‘s baby is Raddix Chloe Wildflower Madden. Ok, then.
–Kim Kardashian says she came up with the inspiration for her daughter’s name from a Jay Leno joke.
-YouTuber David Dobrik (aka the only one I only watch) went on Fallon’s show and talked about meeting Justin Bieber for the first time, and how the singer proceeded to tickle him. He also talked about how he got married to his friend’s 70-something-year-old mom just to become his friend’s stepdad.
-The photographer who grabbed that photo of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston backstage at the SAG Awards explained how she got the shot: “I was about to leave when I saw Brad coming down the hallway and sensed that there would be a photo-worthy moment. He called out ‘Aniston!’ and she turned around and they embraced and congratulated each other.”
-This is quite lovely: Patrick Stewart appeared on The View today and surprised Whoopi Goldberg by inviting her to appear on his new Star Trek series.
-Speaking of Patrick Stewart, he plays a famous pianist struggling with stage fright who gets help from a music critic, played by Katie Holmes, in the trailer for Coda.
