-I really hope the buzz surrounding Normal People (which drops in Canada this week on CBC Gem) is still loud enough when productions resume so that Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones translate their critically acclaimed performances into huge new roles. They’re both so, so good in it and deserve to be big stars. Mescal’s on the new cover of Stylist, where he talks about auctioning off his character’s infamous chain to support a mental health and suicide charity called Pieta House.
–Lana Del Rey can’t stop digging a hole. This weekend, she posted yet another defense of her original post, and compared herself to yet another POC. “The difference is, when I get on the pole, people call me a whore, but when [FKA] Twigs gets on the pole, it’s art.” At what point does someone in her life just change her Insta password?

-There’s only one episode left of this season of Killing Eve but I can’t imagine I’ll ever want to catch up if critics keep calling it confusing and unwatchable.
-Speaking of unwatchable shows with a connection to Phoebe Waller-Bridge, I liked it at the beginning of the season but the Run finale was really, really bad. It’s actually kind of shocking how far this show went off-course.
–Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet runtime is reportedly 3 hour 15 min. Meh, at this point what else are we doing?
-I was very charmed by The Lovebirds, starring Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani, now out on Netflix.
–Spike Lee‘s new film about Vietnam vets, Da 5 Bloods, drops on Netflix in June. Here’s the trailer:
