Hey Ginny & Georgia, 2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back. How about we stop degrading hard working women by defining this horse shit as FuNnY. Also, @netflix after Miss Americana this outfit doesn’t look cute on you 💔 Happy Women’s History Month I guess pic.twitter.com/2X0jEOXIWp

–Taylor Swift called out Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia for what she called a “lazy, deeply sexist” and “horse shit” joke they made about her during season finale of the show. Not to defend the show (which is a mess), but the way that joke was positioned, we’re *supposed* to think it was cruel/below the belt, not that the show was endorsing the sentiment. But I’m sure Netflix appreciates the sudden free publicity…
-Last night everyone was supposed to be talking about the Golden Globes, but then CBS dropped two promos of Harry and Meghan‘s chat with Oprah, which stole the spotlight. Leading with O’s “Were you silent or were you SILENCED?” surely helped get it trending. And Meghan didn’t say a word in either trailer, making it harder for the British press to pre-emptively attack her.
–Taylor Simone Ledward’s acceptance of late husband Chadwick Boseman‘s was the show’s emotional highlight.
–Fashion-wise, I loved Anna Taylor-Joy, Regina King and Cynthia Erivo.
–Jason Sudeikis wore a hoodie to support his sister’s dance studio, and it’s now sold out.
–Gal Gadot announced she’s pregnant by tweeting a photo her her husband holding her belly and the caption “Here we go again.”
–Lady Gaga‘s dog walker Ryan Fischer posted on Instagram about being shot during last Wednesday’s violent kidnapping of the singer’s dogs, telling Gaga “Your babies are back and the family is whole… we did it!”
-At least 10 women and one man are accusing T.I. and Tiny of multiple sex, weapons and drugging crimes spanning 15 years.
-On a podcast, Paris Hilton recalled “cruel” treatment from David Letterman and Sarah Silverman.
–Angelina Jolie‘s painting by Winston Churchill sold for $11.5M at auction.
-Comic-Con will remain a virtual event this year (hopefully they’ve figured it out by now, cause last year was a mess). Organizers are eyeing a smaller, in-person event in November.
-A lot criticism surrounding Wandavision is about how the Avengers movies didn’t have enough Wanda in them for the audience to be invested in her for her own show, but the last episode went back in time to make emotional sense of the character.
–Ellen Pompeo insists they still don’t know if this season of Grey’s Anatomy will be its last. “We honestly have not decided. We’re really trying to figure it out right now.”
-Here’s the first trailer for Operation Varsity Blues, Netflix’s take on the college admissions scandal.
