I haven’t even recovered from The Deranged Golden Globe Tweets and now it’s already Deranged W Magazine Covers Day pic.twitter.com/Swo4q7c256

-A slew of stars posed for W’s Great Performances issues, and some covers were way zanier than others.
–Jake Gyllenhaal is seemingly trolling Swifties in his photoshoot for W Magazine, where he sports a pair of red heart sunglasses that are almost identical to the ones Taylor Swift wore in her “22” music video. I love this level of pettiness.
-In his W profile, Adam Driver says he doesn’t attend wrap parties. “I haven’t been to a wrap party since Girls. I just want to get the character out of my system and go home.” What a bummer for the crew.
-Love is dead. Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet have announced their split.
-On the other side of the coin, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly got engaged. (I’m so curious about who was filming this. There are multiple angles in the video!) Also, is there a proposal uniform? His buddy Travis Barker wore a similar shirt. (This is my fave tweet about it.)
-Welp. The Queen has stripped Prince Andrew of his military affiliations and he will “no longer use the style ‘His Royal Highness’ in any official capacity.” The palace added in their brief statement that he will be defending himself in the sexual abuse case “as a private citizen.”
–Kanye West was allegedly involved in a battery incident in Los Angeles. He was named as a suspect in a battery report (rumoured to involve him hitting a fan) taken by the LAPD’s Newton Division early on Thursday morning. TMZ has video of him yelling at someone, though its not clear who. He was not arrested and a rep has yet to comment.
-Before all that hubbub, he was with Julia Fox, Madonna and Floyd Mayweather at Delilah nightclub last night. There’s a really cringey video of them all listening to music.
-Meanwhile, Julia Fox addressed criticism about their relationship, denying that they’re only spending time together for attention.
–Bob Saget‘s widow is expressing her gratitude for John Mayer and Jeff Ross, who picked up his car from LAX for her.
–David Beckham packed wife Victoria Beckham‘s lunch with a note that said, “Enjoy lunch ***hole… Come home happier.” She posted it with the caption, “Even when I’m grumpy he looks after me.”
–Halle Berry penned a tribute to Sidney Poitier: “I was a child who, like my parents’ interracial relationship, never quite fit in. In those years, it was rare to see Blacks in leading roles, much less have our narratives celebrated or even acknowledged.”
-I keep trying to avoid the Drake/hot sauce story but the memes are hilarious.
-Ohhhh, Nicole Kidman *should* host the Oscars.
-This is a great interview with Matilda Lawler, the 13-year-old who’s crushing it on Station Eleven.
-There’s been a lot of speculation about who will play fan favourite Nikolai in the second season of Shadow and Bone — and Patrick Gibson of The OA has landed the role. Other new cast members include Anna Leong Brophy as Tamar, Lewis Tan as Tolya, and The Witcher’s Jack Wolfe as Wylan. Everyone looks pretty much how I pictured them when reading the books (though the guy who plays Wylan looks like a child, but IMDB assures me he’s 26).
-The reviews for How I Met Your Father with Hilary Duff are very not good.
-A Degrassi revival series has been ordered by HBO Max.
–Jean-Marc Vallée finished writing a film about Yoko Ono and John Lennon before his sudden death last month.
–Gugu Mbatha-Raw moves into a haunted house in the trailer for The Girl Before.
