Oprah Puts Breonna Taylor on the Cover of O

Oprah-Winfrey-Breonna-Taylor

-For the first time ever in O’s 20-year history, Oprah Winfrey is not on the cover of her magazine. Breonna Taylor is.

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).

-According to People’s excerpts of Finding Freedom, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were actually engaged a lot sooner than we initially thought.

-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.

Alanis Morissette and Liz Phair were supposed to tour together this summer. The two met for a Zoom conversation with the L.A. Times that had them swapping horror stories about men in the ’90s.

-TIFF has announced its film lineup and it includes Regina King‘s directorial debut — which was just bought by Amazon Studio.

-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.

Beyonce shared a new trailer for Black Is King, her movie that drops at midnight tonight on Disney+.

Megan Thee Stallion for Marie Claire

Megan Thee Stallion is Marie Claire’s latest cover star.

-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.

John Krasinski surprised a young Hamilton fan by hosting a Hamilton reunion on his web show and it was *wonderful*.

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

-Speaking of Lady Gaga, in a WHO press conference, she said she had helped to raise $35M for Global Citizen in the past week.

-Meanwhile, Elton John is donating $1 million to help people with HIV and AIDS during the coronavirus pandemic.

-The cast of Schitt’s Creek has been doing nightly IG Lives to support foodbanks, and Annie Murphy killed it by teaching the choreography to “Little Bit Alexis.”

-Reality star/noted anti-vaxxer Kristin Cavallari and her family and hairdresser keep posting about how they’re “stuck” in the Bahamas — even though they had plenty of warnings to leave.

Pink talked about her “rollercoaster” experience with coronavirus and says she and her three-year-old son are both recovering.

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.

 

 

Elisabeth Moss Says Jennifer Aniston Will Hold Hands With You

Elisabeth Moss says the photo of her holding hands with Jennifer Aniston on the SAG Awards red carpet didn’t make her feel special. “Well, everyone thinks that moment with Brad where they were holding hands was a big deal, but honestly, she seems to just be doing this with everybody. I mean, she’s just very handsy…I’ve literally never officially met her.”

-The Love Is Blind finale dropped today and my entire Twitter TL is freaking out. But the producers say they had two more engagements that they didn’t follow. I don’t get why some couples you see in the first few episodes just disappear. This was filmed in 2018. Surely Netflix had enough time to edit it all together in a way that could coherently include them, or drop them altogether?

-If you read one celeb-adjacent story today, read Caity Weaver‘s deep dive into what is going on with the Royal Family Instagram accounts. It’s so, so good.

-Meanwhile, The RCMP plans to stop providing security to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

Hilary Duff declined to comment, but multiple sources tell Variety that the star is not happy with Disney for firing showrunner Terri Minsky from the Lizzie Maguire revival two episodes in. The two women wanted to do an adult version of Lizzie but Disney wants a show that will appeal to families. The revival now remains on hold.

Taylor Swift is unrecognizable in her video for “The Man,” in which she transforms convincingly into a dude.

-Speaking of new music videos, Alanis Morissette attends AA in the video for “Reasons I Drink,” which includes a version of her dressed as Ironic-era Alanis.

-This is a good take: Celebs should Instagram themselves washing their hands instead of wearing masks.

Britney Spears posted a dance video and it was all going well and good — until she broke her foot. You can actually hear the moment it happens.

-In a new op-ed for The New York Times, staff writer Lindsay Crouse opened up about the moment she discovered that the man she used to date for seven years has moved on with Lady Gaga. “Lady Gaga is amazing. Comparing yourself with her is incredibly motivational, and I recommend you try it, regardless of how you relate to who’s dating her.”

Variety’s new cover story tackles what has/will change with Harvey Weinstein‘s verdict. “For so long, those in Hollywood who have abused their power have stood to gain everything from perpetuating this fear in women,” says Canadian actress Larissa Gomes, who was 21 years old when he allegedly sexually harassed her in a hotel room.

Jordan Peele‘s Candyman trailer freaked me the eff out.
