-In advance of her memoir’s release, Mariah Carey sat down with Oprah for an interview on Apple+, and talks about feeling like a captive in her marriage to Tommy Mottola, and that Derek Jeter was a “catalyst” in their divorce.
–In the book, she writes that Mottola held a butter knife to her face in front of a bunch of their guests at their home, and that he didn’t want her songs to have an R&B influence because he “tried to wash the ‘urban’ (translation: Black) off of me. And it was no different when it came to the music”.
-Time released their 100 most influential people list, and Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade made the cover.
-Also for Time, another influential couple — Prince Harry and Meghan Markle — appeared in a video to tell Americans to vote in “the most important election of our lifetime”.
–Emma Stone and her partner stepped out wearing matching rings — and she was also sporting what looks like a baby bump.
–Kim Cattrall isn’t interested in taking back what she’s said about Sarah Jessica Parker: “Everything is on Google. So, I encourage you to Google it about anything that I’ve said. I feel that that was then, and when I look at what’s going on around me, I just don’t have any regrets.”
-Meanwhile, Kelly covered Harry Styles and it was perfect.
-This collection of clips from the first week of Drew Barrymore’s show is wild.
-This is a fun article on what it’s like to be in Drew’s virtual audience during taping.
–JK Rowling‘s new thriller is in the No 1 spot despite her transphobia comments, reminding us all that what is playing out on Twitter tends to be very different from what’s happening IRL.
–Demi Moore is making the jump to the small screen. She’ll star in Amazon’s adaptation of the Dirty Diana podcast.
