Rihanna Covers British Vogue

Rihanna British Vogue

Rihanna on British Vogue is what the world needs right now. In the interview, she promises that she is “very aggressively working on new music,” says she gets anxiety before public appearances (“Oh, I’m nervous before even getting in the car to go to something. It can be devastating. And when I pull up to the red carpet, I’m like ‘Are you kidding me?’ I left the Grammys one time. Left! In the middle of my hair and make-up. My hair half up, half of my lash on”), and reveals she’s very involved in Fenty Beauty (“I write all of the copy for the websites, the product descriptions, product names, the colour names. I do have a huge team, but I just don’t necessarily think their tone is mine. I’d feel like a fraud selling something that I can’t stand by”).

-This is making so many people so happy right now: Christopher Meloni is bringing his Law & Order: SVU character back to television. The actor will return as Elliot Stabler in a new, yet untitled NBC series centered around his character that hails from L&O mastermind Dick Wolf.

-The best thing about all the late night hosts doing at-home shows is that now we can judge all of their houses.

-I don’t know why I’m surprised that Gwyneth Paltrow watched Tiger King, but here I am.

Daniel Radcliffe and Erin Darke talk about being the first celebrities to get hit with a coronavirus hoax. They seems super sweet together.

-Speaking of sweet, The Star Trek: TNG cast had a video chat to celebrate Marina Sirtis’s birthday.

-Veronica Mars’ Ryan Hansen posted a video of him singing happy birthday for costar Jason Dohring. The best bit: “Feel free to comment below about how much you love Jason, happy birthday, all that stuff. If it’s about the show, email me. We can talk about it there. wedidnotwriteit@actor.com.” Man, that poor cast must have been bombarded with complaints after the final episode.

-I like this piece on how entertainment publicists are handling PR in the middle of a global crisis.

Aisha Tyler just released a trailer for a comedy short she did with Stephen Amell.

-The kid who plays Mike on Stranger Things is stirring up gossip and I love it.

Lindsay Lohan has declared she’s “back.” From what is unclear but…yay?

-I don’t know how the NYT is standing by its gushing article of the Internet Archive. Yes, it’s made more than a million books available free online. But it’s doing so by breaking copyright and not paying the authors. NPR also wrote a glowing article on it last week, which they ended up stepping back from after authors called out the site for piracy.

-I definitely agree with this take on how Annie Murphy will be Schitt’s Creek’s greatest legacy. The premise of her next show sounds great so I’m hoping for big things for her.

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys reading a children’s book is all kinds of cute.

-Here’s the trailer for Jennifer Lopez’s charitable new reality series on Quibi Thanks A Million, in which 10 celebs each give away $100k to deserving recipients.

-The one (only?) good thing about being stuck in our houses is that there are lots of new shows premiering in April with big stars, including Chris Evans, Cate Blanchett, Sophie Turner, Rashida Jones and Liam Hemsworth.

-Also premiering in April is Normal People, based on the Sally Rooney book that everyone seemed to fall in love with in 2018. Here’s the trailer:

Justin Bieber Talks About “Super Precious” Hailey Baldwin

Justin Bieber gushed about his new wife during his Ellen appearance and talked about the proposal. “I wasn’t really nervous about her saying yes. I was more nervous about ‘am I able to make this commitment? Am I able to make this commitment as a man and be able to honour what I say?’ Because you know that’s a serious commitment when you say you’re going to love someone for better and for worse and like be faithful that’s a huge..am I able to do that? So I think that’s what really I was battling with. ”

-Meanwhile, Selena Gomez says she felt like a victim of emotional abuse during her time with Bieber.

-I don’t say this very often, but this Katherine McPhee tweet is very good.

Jodie Turner-Smith says she and Joshua Jackson plan to raise their child in Canada. Welcome home, Pacey!

David Schwimmer says he pushed for diversity on Friends and was responsible for the casting of Lauren Tom and Aisha Tyler. “I was well aware of the lack of diversity and I campaigned for years to have Ross date women of color. One of the first girlfriends I had on the show was an Asian American woman, and later I dated African American women. That was a very conscious push on my part.”  He also suggested the show be rebooted with an “all-black Friends or an all-Asian Friends.”

This clip of Ariana Grande being incapable of not swearing during a red carpet interview? I felt that.

-This interview with the author of The Witcher is going viral because of his very candid, very relatable answers.

Andy Samberg‘s romcom Palm Springs just broke the record for the most expensive Sundance Film Festival sale of all time — by 69 cents. I’m surprised there was big bid this year, seeing as last year’s major buys (Late Night, The Report, Honey Boy, Britanny Runs a Marathon) didn’t translate into box office booms.

-In a series of tweets, Pink vowed not to mess with her face. Fine, more Botox left for me!

-Man, Terry Crews‘ refusal to stand up for Gabrielle Union (and his subsequent terrible tweet) are really, really disappointing.

-I stopped watching Riverdale in Season 1, but my god they’re going to try to tackle Hedwig and the Angry Inch in a musical episode and I just don’t know how to process that information.

-The controversy surrounding Oprah‘s latest book pick American Dirt isn’t slowing down, but it’s also not hurting sales. The author is doing a talk at my local Indigo next month, which is super disappointing.

-Here’s a really good, behind-the-scenes look at The Daily, the only podcast I listen to religiously.

-I can’t handle horror, but the buzz around Swallow is really good. Here’s the bizarre trailer.

Straight Up is filled with good character actors and the trailer is super charming. I’m charmed.

Gwyneth Paltrow Shares Her Wedding Album

-On GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow shared 47 photos from her wedding to Brad Falchuk — but she didn’t caption any of the ones that feature famous people so you have to do some guessing. That’s clearly Robert Downey Jr giving a toast in #37, and Rob Lowe cutting a rug in #44.

Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus had a baby!

-This week’s SNL promo featured Pete Davidson making a joke about quickie engagements and Ariana Grande was NOT having it. She’s since deleted her tweets but my timeline was wild last night…

-Meanwhile, I’m very much looking forward to seeing Maggie Rogers as the musical guest. “Alaska” gets played on repeat A LOT on my phone. Here’s a recap of her best songs.

Alec Baldwin continues to behave exactly how you’d assume he would. He was arrested today for allegedly punching a man over a parking space.

Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio released a voting PSA.

-Look, I think Rebel Wilson‘s rom-com spoof Isn’t It Romantic looks super fun and I adore the premise. But she really, really shouldn’t have said on Ellen, “I’m proud to be the first-ever plus-sized girl to be the star of a romantic comedy.”  She can’t just erase the history of actresses who’ve starred in body-positive romances, including Queen Latifah, Mo’Nique, Toni Colette, Nia Vardalos and Ricki Lake.

Julia Roberts’ Homecoming premieres on Amazon today, and critics are in love.

-I adore the premise from the new AMC show being exec-produced by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack. Kevin Can F*** Himself is told from the POV of a typical “sitcom wife,” described as “a beauty paired with a less attractive, dismissive, caveman-like husband who gets to be a jerk because she’s a nag and he’s ‘funny.'” *grabby hands*

Goddamit, Hugh Jackman. You were supposed to be one of the good ones.

-I’m not sure why Amy Schumer is showing off her belly bump but here it is.

Les Mooves is calling himself “retired.” That’s one way to spin it…

-Next week we’ll find out who the new People’s Sexiest Man Alive is going to be. The Bradley Cooper speculation is strong which — if it happens — will be interesting to watch thanks to his new, reluctant movie star persona.

Tiffany Haddish is the latest celeb to enjoy Buzzfeed’s puppy interview.

Aisha Tyler recently posted a kissy photo with Emily Bett Rickards and now there’s lots of trashy stories about how they’re dating. I’d love it if it were true, but I follow both of them on Instagram and that gang is always kissing their friendsLike, a lot.

-Riverdale’s Cole Sprouse finds romance in the hospital in the trailer for Five Feet Apart.
