–Prince Harry‘s team is calling claims he mishandled Royal funds “deeply offensive.”
–Kim Kardashian posted an IG story about Kanye West, citing his bipolar diagnosis and asking for compassion and empathy. It was incredibly well-written and sympathetic, but this part made me fear that she’s still onboard with his presidential run: “Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.”
–Jamie Lynn Spears defended her sister Britney after a commenter posted about her “obvious mental illness.” Jamie replied: “You have no right to assume anything about my sister, and I have NO right to speak about HER health and personal matters. She is a strong, badass, unstoppable woman, and that’s the only thing that is OBVIOUS.”

–This is a good piece on how Dave Franco praising three ’90s romcoms (all by white filmmakers) and talking about how he wants to “elevate” the genre ignores the BIPOC voices already refreshing this genre. I don’t know how you can look at the romcom resurgence of the last few years — with movies like Always Be My Maybe, The Big Sick, The Lovebirds, and Crazy Rich Asians — and think you need to jump in and make it better.
-In an interview with Katy Perry, Howard Stern brought up Orlando Bloom‘s nude paddleboating pics from a few years ago. She told him: “It was Europe! We had had a pretty chill time and everywhere we looked, it was like ‘Everybody was naked! It was Europe! It was Italy!’ and I think he wanted to fit in with the locals.”

-Vox’s Emily VanDerWerff talked to over 50 fans of The Office, as well as folks who worked on the show, to find out why the sitcom endures.
-I’m iffy with Aaron Sorkin joints, but these photos of his new movie The Trial of the Chicago 7 has me intrigued, mostly because the cast is so stacked: Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Frank Langella, and Jeremy Strong.
–Donald Glover is reportedly reprising his role as Lando Calrissian in a future Star Wars series for Disney+.
-I love this article on guys starting a romance book club. I never understood why more dudes don’t read romance; it’s basically a how to guide for what women want.
