Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez and Michelle Obama Named People of the Year

Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez and Michelle Obama all grace People magazine’s People of The Year issue. Swift talks about learning to deflect rude questions (“The more women are able to voice their discomfort in social situations, the more it becomes the social norm that people who ask the questions at parties like ‘When are you going to start a family?’ to someone as soon as they turn 25 are a little bit rude. It’s good that we’re allowed to say, ‘Hey, just so you know, we’re more than incubators'”), Aniston says she remains open to love (“Even when it’s scary, even when it hurts. It’s always going to be worth it”), Lopez talks about wanting more kids (“I don’t know that it’s in God’s plan but I would like to try. I’m so open to it!”), and Obama recalls getting “a little emotional” when dropping off Sasha at college (“We were there, just like most parents, helping her unpack and make her dorm room feel like home”).

-Meanwhile, Taylor Swift wrote a Christmas song over the weekend — and it’ll be released tonight. “I know this is pretty wild but I’ve just written a Christmas song.”

Emma Stone is engaged to SNL writer Dave McCary, who she’s been dating for over two years. I dig her pearl engagement ring.

-It’s very weird that Justin Timberlake broke his silence and apologized for being spotted getting flirty with his costar nearly two weeks after the photos first surfaced. Everyone had pretty much forgotten about it before he dragged it back into the spotlight. It’s also weird that he doesn’t apologize to his costar, who social media deemed a homewrecker. He does, however, manage to squeeze in a plug for their new movie, so I guess there’s that?

Jason Derulo is still talking about the fact that Instagram took down his dick pic — and wants us all to know that he was only “semi-aroused…an arousal looks different. It’s a different vibe. It’s a different beast. It leans more to the front, you know what I mean?” I can’t believe this story won’t die.

-The trailer for the new season of Legends of Tomorrow features a Mister Rogers spoof. God, I love those weirdos.

Harry Styles showed off the vinyl set for his sophomore solo album Fine Line, and the liner notes feature a completely nude photo of the singer. So I guess we’re all buying record players, huh?

Tim Allen was on The View last week and complained about political correctness. “I grew up on Richard Pryor; you can’t even go back and talk about the book he wrote. You know, what I got to do sometimes sometimes is explain – which I hate – in big arenas, that this is a thought police thing and I do not like it. But when I use these words, this is my intent behind those words. So as long as you know my intent… I still get people who say, ‘Just don’t say it.'” Listen to those people, Buzz Lightyear.

-Is anyone having a hotter streak than Florence Pugh right now? The only person I can think of that comes close is Lakeith Stanfield.

-A disguised Alanis Morissette and Jimmy Fallon took to the New York City subway to busk. People seemed to catch on pretty quickly it was them.

-This is a very lovely joint interview with Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale. They talk about costarring together (“It starts out as a very pragmatic thing. You have the kids, the kids are getting bigger, and you don’t want to spend the time apart”), and how they’re currently living in Trinity-Bellwoods (which Cannavale calls the Brooklyn of Toronto).

Penn Badgley has some strong thoughts about Los Angeles in the YOU season two teaser.

-The second trailer for Mulan has landed.

Julia Garner stars in the trailer for the Weinstein-based thriller The Assistant, playing a composite character based on public records, documents, and original interviews.

Jacob Elordi is in the new issue of GQ Australia, and despite being spotted with Euphoria costar Zendaya in Greece (and then at the movies. And then in Sydney), he denies they’re dating (“she’s like my sister”). The boy still raves about her though, cause he has eyeballs: “Zendaya is an amazing creative, you know? She’s super dope to work with. She’s an incredible artist and a very caring person to all of us.”

Pete Davidson is making his standup audience sign $1 million NDAs. (In this economy?!) It was enforced at a recent San Francisco show where a fan refused to sign the agreement. This is, obviously, stupid. If your material is ready to be viewed by the paying public, said paying public can judge/talk about it.

Prince William and Princess Kate are going to bake up some holiday treats — and you can watch! The royal couple will appear alongside Mary Berry in a BBC special, A Berry Royal Christmas.

Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler’s Making It returns to NBC tonight, so here’s 60 seconds of them slinging craft-related puns at each other.

Tom Welling is having a big month. Not only will he reprise his Smallville role on next week’s CW crossover, but he and his longterm girlfriend Jessica Rose Lee got married over the weekend.

-My god, I can’t believe the risks Watchmen is taking every week. I’m not even sure how I feel about last night’s insane reveal, but it’s breathtakingly ballsy. Please watch this show.

Alanis Morissette just announced a Jagged Little Pill 25th Anniversary tour with Garbage and Liz Phair. Yes to all of that!

-Is This Is Us star Justin Hartley‘s divorce going to be messy? Days after the actor filed the paperwork, his wife broke her social media silence by posting a quote: “It’s hard to watch people change right in front of you. But it’s even harder remembering who they used to be.”

-Sadness: Shelley Morrison, who played Rosario on Will & Grace, passed away at 83.

Martin Scorsese‘s new movie The Irishman may be on Netflix, but that doesn’t mean he wants you to watch it on the subway. “I would suggest if you ever want to see one of my pictures, or most films – please, please don’t look at it on a phone, please. An iPad, a big iPad, maybe.”

-Knives Out (which I saw this weekend and was thoroughly delighted by) doubled its tracking predictions by opening with a $41.7 million domestic box office, pretty much making back its budget.

Fenty just won the Urban Luxe Award at the British Fashion Awards, marking the first British Fashion Award for Rihanna.

Margaret Qualley and Miranda July posted some videos on Instagram which seems like it’s performance art, but then Jaden Smith waded into it and I’m confused. He’s in on it, right?

-This is a wonderful feature on Laura Dern reflecting on her career, from Enlightened being ahead of its time (“But now, this year, this moment particularly, everywhere I go, people are bringing it up, like, ‘Oh my God, I just found Enlightened, we are Amy Jellicoe. We are all Amy'”)  to the fallout of Ellen’s infamous coming out episode (“We only did it for what, ten days? We all spent the next couple of years really struggling in work and safety. It was radical to experience that. It was the only time I ever experienced having to have to have full security detail”).

-SAG-AFTRA has launched an investigation into Gabrielle Union‘s firing from America’s Got Talent.

Josh Hartnett and his brother are drug dealers who get in over their head in the Inherit the Viper trailer.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Split

-The big news of the weekend was that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are splitting after less than a year of marriage. The announcement came after came after Cyrus was photographed kissing Kaitlynn Carter, Brody Jenner’s ex, while on holiday in Italy.

Hemsworth was approached this morning by The Daily Mail Australia while out in Byron Bay. “You don’t understand what it’s like,” the actor told the outlet. “I don’t want to talk about it, mate.” 😢

-The Morning Show, Apple’s new show starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, released its first teaser. (It’ll be available via Apple TV but the cost still hasn’t been announced, which seems nuts since this streaming service is set to launch in like a month.)

Josh Kloss, the actor who played Katy Perry’s love interest in her 2010 “Teenage Dream” video (aka the best pop song of the last 10 years), shared a lengthy Instagram post detailing the alleged humiliation he suffered at the hands of the pop star. He said she was “cool and kind” in private but “cold as ice” whenever other people were around, and claims she once pants’d him in public.

Priyanka Chopra was at BeautyCon this past weekend and was asked about her previous tweet on the India–Pakistan conflict. Her response was not great, bob.

Kim Cattrall won’t stop talking about another Sex and the City movie — even if we wish she would. “It was a blessing in so many ways but after the second movie I’d had enough. I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t just replace me with another actress instead of wasting time bullying. No means no.”

Lady Gaga is donating school supplies to the communities of El Paso, Dayton, and Gilroy.

-The Teen Choice Awards always make me feel old, but last night’s was especially a doozy. So many YouTube stars I don’t care about!

Chris Evans tweet-flirting with Yvette Nicole Brown on her birthday is very cute.

Olivia Colman is my queen — and now she’s everyone’s. Netflix released the first look at the actress as Queen Elizabeth II in season three of The Crown, out Nov 17.

Sarah Silverman says she was recently fired from new movie after a photo of her in blackface from her show resurfaced. (She’s talked about it before, calling it her most “regrettable joke” back in 2015). “There’s a still of me on Twitter in blackface and it’s totally out of context and I tweeted it when Twitter was new and the people who followed me watched that show and it was from that show. Now it’s forever there and it looks…it’s totally racist out of context and I regret that.”

-Alanis Morissette‘s third child, Winter Mercy Morissette-Treadway, was born last week.

-Based on a Trump remark and some conservative faux-paranoia around a movie no one has even seen yet, Universal has cancelled The Hunt release. This makes no sense — not only have movies like The Purge franchise existed for years, if anything right-wingers should love a film about poor people rising up to defeat rich elites. What’s it gonna take for us to get Betty Gilpin: action star?!

-In happier news, The Farewell continues to be the lil’ movie that could. It has boosted its domestic haul to $10.2 million.

-Netflix dropped the first trailer for My Name Is Dolemite starring Eddie Murphy as comedy and rap pioneer Rudy Ray Moore.
