-Today, Britney Spears‘ conservatorship case was back in front of a judge at Los Angeles Superior Court. The judge ruled that the singer can finally select her own attorney instead of getting court-appointed counsel.
–Olivia Rodrigo visited the White House to urge young people to get vaccinated, saying she’s “beyond honored and humbled” to “help spread the message about the importance of youth vaccinations.”
–Lindsey Shaw, who I only know from the TV version of 10 Things I Hate About You, posted a video mocking one of the viral dances created by Black creators, and then posted another video crying about “the hate in my inbox” and pulled a “I am sorry you were offended.” Yikes.
–Gillian Anderson has arrived at the same place as many of us post-pandemic: she’s vowed to never wear a bra again.
-Bridgerton creator Chris Van Dusen talked about the show’s 12 Emmy nominations and what to expect from season 2. “Kate Sharma, played by Simone Ashley, she is a force to be reckoned with, and we pair up with her Anthony Bridgerton, played by Jonathan Bailey, who’s just incredible. The two of them, they are magnetic. You cannot take your eyes off of them when they’re together on screen.” I’m looking forward to it; Kate was my fave character in the books.
-I’m not a fan of this Dolce & Gabbana on Sharon Stone, but I am a fan of the resurgence of red carpets!
-As much as I liked Loki, I would have been fine with it being a one and done, but it just got renewed for a second season.
-It’s hilarious how Marvel has made its casts so scared to talk about spoilers, even after they’ve been given the greenlight.
–John Mayer says his new record is intentionally terrible. “For me, it was like, I want to get in trouble. I want someone to tell me this is shit. And I made a record that to me at the time, only in a way to coax something out of me that I wouldn’t have normally done: shitpost a record. It’s called Sob Rock because it’s a shitpost.” That’s one way to get ahead of criticism, I guess.
–Justin Bieber dropped $1k in a weed store in 20 minutes, which actually doesn’t sound that hard to do.
–Kristen Stewart and Dylan Meyer have been spotted wearing rings, leading to marriage speculation.
–Hilary Duff posted a series of photos on Instagram documenting her daughter’s birth, and I had now idea her Younger costar Molly Bernard was her doula!

–Eddie Murphy’s son and Martin Lawrence’s daughter are dating.
-The Other Two is coming back August 26. God, I loved this sitcom.
-Netflix’s Never Have I Ever has returned, and the new season is getting great reviews.
-Red Rocket is getting raves at Cannes. It’s from The Florida Project director Sean Baker and follows Simon Rex, who plays a washed-up porn star who returns to his hometown in Texas to try to get his life together.
-There’s some weird corporate synergy to having Deadpool and Korg reacting to the trailer to Ryan Reynolds’ Free Guy, but it’s really funny so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. “Jodie Comer! God, I love her so much. I hope they don’t fridge her.” “What’s fridging?” “Well, it’s the practice of killing off or hurting a female character in order to motivate or torture the main character, also known as Deadpool 2.”
-Here’s the trailer for Blackpink the Movie, the upcoming documentary about the k-pop group which is set to screen in theaters worldwide in August.
–Justin Chon and Alicia Vikander star in the Blue Bayou trailer.
