More Ted Lasso Is On Its Way

-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!!”

Report: Jennifer Lopez and ARod Split

-There’s nothing like a classic Friday afternoon news dump! According to Page Six, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have called off their two-year engagement.  (People and E! News is also reporting it.) There’s been rumours of trouble ever since that mess with Southern Charm’s Madison.

-The weekend is here! Celebrate by gazing on these glorious photos of Lady Gaga feeding Adam Driver.

Jennifer Garner just experienced a big life milestone at 48 – she got her ears pierced.

-This Sunday’s Grammy Awards are going to look like a real award show — meaning no Zoom.

Elton John says he’ll “hit someone” if Phoebe Bridgers doesn’t win a Grammy on Sunday night. I’ll help.

-Ottawa Public Health has been crushing it on Twitter during covid, and now Ryan Reynolds is chiming in.

-The Mail’s doubling down on their story about “doctored” headlines in the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle interview.

-In his Men’s Health cover story, Michael B. Jordan talks about those rumours that his romance with Lori Harvey is a PR stunt. “I can’t do anything about that, and I’ve just got to accept that and keep moving in my purpose. People that know me know my heart. But people that know me for my work…they know what I allow them to know. The fact that I’ve been so closed off about a lot of parts of my life was a personal choice. As I’ve gotten older and a little more mature and comfortable in my own skin, I’ve become less concerned about it.”

Yara Shahidi was honoured in Glamour UK’s Women of the Year Awards. I watched The Sun Is Also A Star last weekend and spent the whole movie mesmerized by her face.

-Sad there’s no new WandaVision dropping today? A new Disney+ documentary takes viewers inside the making of the show.

-I really like this point about criticisms of Wanda not facing consequences for what she did to Westview. How many fans are calling for Clint to be held accountable for his crimes? Or Tony? Or Bucky?

-Full reviews for Falcon and the Winter Solider are still under embargo, but critics have taken to Twitter to share their initial reactions to the first episode — and it’s all very positive. It sound like it’s going to be much more of a shoot ’em up adventure show than WandaVision was, but there are still some quiet character moments.

Sharon Osbourne is now apologizing for supporting Piers Morgan. “To anyone of colour that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said, I am truly sorry.” Her initial meltdown in this clip was textbook white privilege: demanding a Black woman explain racism to her, centering the issue on herself, and weaponizing her tears.

-Ohhhh, people are so mad at Grey’s Anatomy after last night’s episode!

Rebekah Weatherspoon‘s Cowboys of California trilogy is being optioned for TV. Two years ago when I made a concerted effort to stop reading books with only white protags, it lead me to romance (’cause that’s really the only genre that is crushing it, diversity-wise) and this series was the first one I read all the way through.

Hilary Duff is pregnant and she wants the world to know about a symptom that’s called “lightning crotch.”

Peyton List and Lili Taylor star in the Paper Spiders trailer which got raves on the festival circuit.

Angelina Jolie Invites Us Into Her Home

 

Angelina-Jolie-British-Vogue

Angelina Jolie covers the March issue Of British Vogue, and the interview is a good mix of hints about her split from Brad Pitt (“The past few years have been pretty hard. I’ve been focusing on healing our family. It’s slowly coming back, like the ice melting and the blood returning to my body”), passion about her activism (“I see a lot of older people making excuses for certain behaviours, and it tends to be the younger person who is quicker to say, ‘But this is simply wrong, and we stand against it'”) and cute anecdotes about her kids (“I feel that I’m gonna hit my stride in my fifties. Though we were on the trampoline the other day, and the children said, ‘No, Mom, don’t do that. You’ll hurt yourself.’ And I thought, ‘God, isn’t that funny?’ There was a day I was an action star”). The family photos are just as fascinating as the quotes — I love the one where she’s giving Maddox a haircut.

-Uh oh. A former costar of Adam Driver went on a Portuguese podcast and accused him of “behaving very badly” on the set of 2018’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. According to translations, she said “he demanded, I think by contract, that no one could look at him. If they looked, the extras were immediately fired.” She also said he got too rough with her during filming: “He behaved very badly with me. Physically. He attacked me… And it had nothing to do with the scene.”

Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P Henson will announce the major Golden Globes categories live on TV tomorrow morning. Weirdly, Best Comedy Movie won’t make the cut.

-Starz announced today that it will remove Marilyn Manson from his upcoming appearance in its drama series American Gods.

Dolly Parton turned down an offer to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom twice during the Donald Trump administration — possibly because she had scheduling conflicts but I prefer to believe she’s just that good.

-Although she helped fund the vaccine research, she still hasn’t gotten the shot. “I’m not going to get mine until some more people get theirs. I don’t want it to look like I’m jumping the line just because I donated money.”

-I’ve been really enjoying the Too Long; Didn’t Watch podcast, in which a celeb watches the first and last episode of a series they’d never seen before and tries to figure out what they missed. Jon Hamm watched Gossip Girl, Alison Brie watched Game of Thrones, Kumail Nanjiani watched Veronica Mars, and this week Sophia Bush watches Parks and Rec.

Mariah Carey‘s family continues to be garbage. Her sister is suing her for $1.25 million, alleging infliction of emotional distress.​

-The palace is refusing to take the blame for the birth certificate fiasco.

-Stars like Charli XCX and Rihanna are mourning the death of producer Sophie.

-Also, Rihanna is shining light on India’s farmers protests.

-This article on stressed-out COVID compliance officers and assistants who work on TV shows is terrifying. “I have no formal training. I have no medical training. I don’t know anything more or less about coronavirus than the next person.”

-I really liked this piece on Hannah Waddingham’s arc on Ted Lasso. It’s so rare to see such a fully realized character in a comedy, especially a woman over 40.

Ariana Grande is releasing a deluxe album — and it’s got 4 different versions of “Positions.”

-Here’s the trailer for The Nevers, HBO’s Victorian sci-fi drama that Joss Whedon created — and then left. I must say I’m intrigued by this first look.

Will Smith is featured in the trailer for Amend: The Fight for America, which also features Mahershala Ali, Diane Lane, Samuel L. Jackson, Pedro Pascal, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Sterling K Brown, Joshua Jackson, Yara Shahidi, Laverne Cox and more. It drops on Netflix next weekend.

Amy Poehler directs and co-stars in Moxie, playing a woman who inspires her teen daughter to start a rabble-rousing zine. It’s coming to Netflix next month.
