Norm Macdonald Has Passed Away

-Saddened and stunned by the news that Norm MacDonald has died at 61 “after a long and private battle with cancer.” There are a lot of clips floating around this afternoon, but the ones I keep seeing over and over are his moth joke, and his roast of Bob Sagat.

-Stars brought the fashion drama to the Met Gala last night. My faves were Tessa ThompsonElliot Page, and Lupita Nyong’o. See every single look here.

Nick Minaj tweeted her reason for not going to her 22 million followers: “They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now.” I would love to know what kind of research vax-hesitant people are doing that hasn’t already been done by the world’s leading experts and doctors.

-Congrats to Kate Hudson, who just got engaged and was not already engaged like I thought she was.

Jennifer Aniston was on Kimmel last night and said she’s skipping the Emmys because of covid. “This is still a big step for me just to be here. It’s just baby steps.”

Andrew Garfield told Jessica Chastain that their promotional campaign for The Eyes of Tammy Faye will be a ‘no-licky-pitty zone‘ after her viral red carpet moment with Oscar Isaac in Venice. (I saw the film last night and while I was a bit lukewarm on it, Chastain is for sure a lock for an Oscar nod.)

Alanis Morissette does not support the documentary about her that is currently at TIFF and will soon be on HBO. “I agreed to participate in a piece about the celebration of Jagged Little Pill’s 25th anniversary and was interviewed during a very vulnerable time (while in the midst of my third postpartum depression during lockdown)…I was lulled into a false sense of security and their salacious agenda became apparent immediately upon my seeing the first cut of the film.”

Oprah-Winfrey-Breonna-Taylor

Taylor Swift and her team have moved quickly to respond to accusations that she copied the logo for the merchandise that goes with her new album, and has changed the design.

-She has remained silent though as fans continue to harass and dox the Pitchfork reviewer who gave the album 8/10. Sadly, with the toxic nature of some stan culture, this is only going to stop when she tells them to.

Jacob Elordi talks about working out seven days a week, twice a day when shooting the first Kissing Booth movie: “At the time, I was super young and got thrown into a world where everyone wanted to talk about my body…it really f*cking bothered me. I don’t identify with that whatsoever. I was trying to prove myself and be known as an actor. It was so much working out and I hated every second of it.”

-This list of questions raised by The Kissing Booth 2 is very good (though I still thought it was miles away better — and less problematic — than the first).

-The promos for Drew Barrymore‘s new talk show are kinda wild, y’all.

Julianne Moore is not sure she would star in The Kids Are All Right as a straight woman if it were made today. I love that movie — but she’s not wrong.

-Portrait of a Lady on Fire, which topped many people’s Best Movie of 2019 lists, is now streaming on Crave.

-This profile on rapper Flo Milli is great — and not just because she lays out a really sneaky way to grow Instagram followers.

-Australia’s Today Show executive Neil Breen opened up about his own experience with the Ellen Degeneres‘ staff when the talk show host was there to be interviewed. “The producer called us aside and said, ‘Now Neil, no one is to talk to Ellen. You don’t talk to her, you don’t approach her, you don’t look at her. She’ll come in, she’ll sit down, she’ll talk to Richard and then Ellen will leave…I have no idea whether she’s a nice person or not, I wouldn’t have a clue. But I can tell you the people who work with her walked on eggshells the whole time.”

-Meanwhile, in a letter to employees obtained by THR, DeGeneres apologized to her staff and vowed to “correct the issues” — though she seems to place the blame on her producers: “As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Clearly some didn’t.”

-Happy Endings star Damon Wayans Jr. is reuniting with the series’ creator David Caspe and and two of the show’s writers for a half-hour bounty hunter action comedy on Peacock. Not exactly the HE reunion I wanted but I’ll take it.

David Lynch‘s daily videos often feature unexplained props and it’s kind of amazing. “What is the purpose of this jar? Why did I paint it this certain way? Here in LA [proceeds to give a weather report and never mentions the jar again…]”

George RR Martin isn’t the only author testing our patience. Patrick Rothfuss’ failure to deliver the third book in his Kingkiller Chronicle series led his editor to lash out on Facebook.

-I can’t imagine how annoying it is to be famous and have people hassle you when you’re out at a bar. On the other hand, I can’t imagine responding to said people by choking them. Ezra Miller is in hot water after video surfaced this weekend of him appearing to choke a female fan. This is not the type of scandal you want to get caught in when your character is gearing up to headline their own DC superhero movie.

Louis C.K. downplays his sexual misconduct in his controversial new special. One of his new gems: “Men are taught to make sure the woman is okay. The thing is, women know how to seem okay when they’re not okay.” Oh yes, it’s clearly women’s fault for not spelling out how they felt about you masturbating in front of them without their consent.

Channing Tatum and Jessie J‘s recent reunion reportedly didn’t stick.

It’s not a telethon or fundraiser; it’s just meant to entertain and convey messages of solidarity.

This thread reminding everyone about what really went down with Paris Hilton/Lindsay Lohan/Britney Spears in the mid-aughts is worth your time.

Keira Knightley‘s new movie is heading online early.

-Who knows when we’ll actually get to see the new Top Gun movie (December, allegedly) but they’re still releasing featurettes about it. It’s going to be so wild when summer blockbusters hit during the time usually reserved for prestige Oscar bait.
