-Ted Lasso is coming back way earlier than I expected — July 23! Here’s the season 2 trailer. Rewatching this show got me through the worst of the pandemic (so far).
–Billie Eilish might be dating actor Matthew Tyler Vorce.
–Demi Lovato apologized for going apeshit on a frozen yogurt shop. She had called them out for their sugar-free, dairy-free, and low-fat options, calling them a “diet culture vulture”. They responded that those were options for customers with health restrictions such as vegans, celiacs, and diabetics. It was such a bizarre story to begin with, but the optics of going after a small business right now didn’t help.
-TikTok Star Bryce Hall has been sued for assault and battery after an altercation at an LA restaurant was caught on camera.
–Pete Davidson made it clear to Jake Paul that he’s not a fan.
-The cast of The Good Place (minus Kristen Bell) had a sleepover.
–E. Alex Jung profiles are always a must-read, but his conversation with Mads Mikkelsen is an instant classic. Mikklesen talks about the Hannibal finale (“We actually did a couple of takes of the very last scene where we were looking at each other, and it was a little too obvious — it was almost a kiss. Me and Hugh [Dancy] were like, ‘Why not? We have a couple of takes. Let’s do one. It might be cool’…Bryan [Fuller] loved it, but he was like, ‘Too much, guys. It’s too obvious'”), what it was like to become recognizable in Denmark after playing a TV cop (“Since then, I’ve never bought a normal Coca-Cola. It’s always like, “Here’s your cola, Master Mads,” or “Get your fucking Coke, and get out of my shop.” There’s no neutral Coca-Cola anymore”), taking Rihanna‘s fake nails from the set of the “Bitch Better Have My Money” video (When we were done, I was like, “Are you done with them? Can I have some of them? I have a few friends who’re going to be so jealous when I show them this'”), and possibly the best career advice I’ve ever heard (“My approach to what I do in my job — and it might even be the approach to my life — is that everything I do is the most important thing I do…That means I will be ambitious with my job and not with my career. That’s a very big difference, because if I’m ambitious with my career, everything I do now is just stepping-stones leading to something — a goal I might never reach, and so everything will be disappointing. But if I make everything important, then eventually it will become a career”).
–Julia Roberts dances it out in her new Chopard ad.
–Taylor Swift‘s alleged stalker was arrested after he tried to break into her apartment. He apparently already has restraining orders from models Bella and Gigi Hadid.
-90210 reboot star AnnaLynne McCord shared her diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder. “All of my roles were splits, but I didn’t even realize I was doing it at all until I did 90210.”
-Game of Thrones’ Iron Anniversary seems to be an attempt to reverse the bitter taste the series finale left fans two years ago.
–Kate Winslet‘s new HBO show Mare of Easttown debuted to strong ratings. I’m glad; I dug it.
–Kim Kardashian freaked out when she found out she was an inspiration for Bridgerton’s wardrobe — and then quickly tried to finagle a set visit. I would too.
-I keep forgetting that the Oscars are this weekend! Steven Soderbergh, who’s one of the producers, says “You’ll feel like you’re watching a movie.”
-Here’s the trailer for Annette, a musical drama starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard, which is set to open Cannes on July 6. This trailer screams “not for me!!”
