-I haven’t finished the new episodes of You that dropped last week so I didn’t get too far into Penn Badgley‘s cover story for British GQ, but I can’t imagine going to breakfast and being interrupted by fans saying things like “Will you stalk me?” and “I want to be loved like that!” He also clarified his earlier comments about requesting less sex scenes in season four. “What I was speaking about wasn’t actually the final product.

–Diplo says he’s hooked up with guys — but was quick to clarify that he’s not gay because he didn’t make eye contact. “I’m sure I’ve gotten a blow job from a guy before, for sure. I don’t know if it’s gay unless you like may eye contact while there’s the blowjob happening…Getting a blowjob’s not that gay, I think…I think the best answer I have is I’m not not gay. There are a couple guys…I could date, life partner-wise.”

–Freddie Prinze Jr. says he had a rough time working with I Know What You Did Last Summer’s director Jim Gillespie, who told him on the first day he was miscast and gave him “psychotic notes” like “Don’t leave your mouth open. You look stupid when you do that.” Prinze Jr. says he remembers thinking, “I’m either gonna break down or I have to beat this guy’s ass. Like those were the only two options in my head.”
-I’ve been listening a lot to the Daisy Jones & the Six soundtrack and this is an interesting ranking of the songs. I would have put “Regret Me” higher, and it’s INSANE that “Look at Us Now (Honeycomb)” isn’t number 1.
