James Gunn Keeps Talking about Martin Scorsese

James Gunn is walking back his comments about Martin Scorsese. Film Twitter remains exhausting.

-As someone whose water was cut off today because of main repairs in my ‘hood, I’m desperate for a shower. It’s making me even more confused by all these celebrities proclaiming they don’t need them. The latest is Jake Gyllenhaal: “More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times…But I do also think that there’s a whole world of not bathing that is also really helpful for skin maintenance, and we naturally clean ourselves.” Stars know they don’t actually have to disclose everything, right?!?

Kim Kardashian and all 4 kids came out to support Kanye West during his Donda listening party. Meanwhile, attendees were offered the Pfizer vaccine.

-According to those at the listening party, the new album has lots of references to the end of his marriage.

Joel Kinnaman was probably planning to celebrate the glowing reviews of The Suicide Squad, but instead the actor has filed a restraining order against his ex-hook up, model Bella Davis, who he alleges is trying to extort him by threatening to tell the media they had non-consensual sex. He claims he recorded a phone conversation in which she admits to lying.

-This is an interesting thought experiment. The days of TV shows getting renewed for 10+ seasons are certainly behind us, so what current broadcast show will be the LAST to ever hit that milestone?

Brendan Hunt (who plays Coach Beard) says the first three episodes of this season’s Ted Lasso were meant to be watched together.

Dave Grohl & The Foo Fighters trolled the Westboro Baptist Church protesters in Kansas by performing disco on the back of a truck.

-Is Britney Spears‘ dad trying to get her under another psychiatric hold? In new court documents, Jamie alleges that her current conservator Jodi Montgomery called him last month to say that she is concerned about his daughter’s behavior and mental health and believes she might need to be placed under a 5150 psychiatric hold. In response, her attorney told Variety: “Ms. Montgomery does have concerns about Ms. Spears’ recent behavior and overall mental health… Due to medical privacy, Ms. Montgomery cannot go into those concerns with any further detail except to say that having her father Jamie Spears continuing to serve as her Conservator instead of a neutral professional fiduciary is having a serious impact on Ms. Spears’ mental health.” The statement added, “Ms. Montgomery implores Mr. Spears to stop the attacks. It does no good; it only does harm. We all need to focus on one thing, and one thing only — the health, well-being and best interests of Britney Spears.”

-Meanwhile, Britney is very excited about her new iPad.

Jennifer Aniston has defended her comments about removing anti-vaxxers from her weekly routine, saying it’s driven by a desire to protect other unvaccinated people. “We have to care about more than just ourselves.”

Luis Guzmán will play Gomez Addams in the Wednesday series at Netflix, which is pretty fantastic casting.

Kathy Griffin is home from the hospital after having half of her lung removed in her battle with cancer.

-Oh god. Multiple women sued The Price Is Right during Mike Richards’ tenure as executive producer, and their stories paint an unsavory picture of Alex Trebek’s presumptive successor.

Diane Keaton posted a tribute to “good men” she’s worked with — and inexplicably included Mel Gibson. Oh honey, no.

-Italian fashion brand Liu Jo filed a lawsuit against Kendall Jenner, alleging she bailed on a million-dollar photoshoot last year.

Sandra Oh‘s new Netflix show The Chair is getting good reviews. She plays an English professor whose promotion becomes a kind of curse.
