Schitts Creek finale

-I’m not ready for Schitt’s Creek to be over (like, literally — I still have half a season to catch up on), but EW’s cover story with Dan Levy and Noah Reid is beautiful.

Rihanna and Drake were interacting in the comments of DJ Spades’ Instagram Live and when he got too complimentary of her, she wrote “Give Drake some water.” Absolute perfection.

Ariana Grande and her new bf are sheltering-in-place together.  TMZ calls him “a high end real estate agent who handles multi-million dollar listings for L.A.’s A-list buyers” so hopefully he’s found them a good place to hunker down.

-Outlander star Sam Heughan is getting dragged for posting photos from his Hawaii vacation in the middle of a pandemic. Seriously celebrities, just put down your phones. You’re all sucking at this.

Prince Charles has tested positive for covid-19 but is only displaying mild symptoms.

-I love that Jennifer Garner keeps shouting out Victor Garber. Spy daddy!

Chrissy Tiegan needed lettuce so she met up with some strangers in a church parking lot and traded cake, wine and banana bread for three heads of romaine. It was incredibly cute.

-The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln serenaded Danai Gurira to celebrate her last episode.

-While talking to Variety, novelist and showrunner Michael Chabon went off on a tangent about what he originally wanted Picard to be like, and as someone who has given up on that show, oh how I wish he’d have stuck with it: “I always said if we could have just done a whole show about Picard and the dog on the vineyard in France, with no starships, no phasers, the only Romulans would be those two Romulans who work for him on the vineyard, and no politics — just, like, there’s a funfair down in the village and they all go, and maybe Picard solves a very low stakes mystery in the village, like, someone has stolen the antique bell out of the bell tower, or something like that?”

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.

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.

-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.

-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.

-In her new Vogue cover story, Ariana Grande reflects on her short-lived relationship with Pete Davidson. “My friends were like, ‘Come [to New York]!

-In her Cosmopolitan cover storyMariah Carey talks about getting married to music executive Tommy Mottola when she was 23 and he was 44. “You might want to picture a child bride. There was a conscious effort to keep me as this all-American, whatever that means, girl. It was very controlled. There was no ­freedom for me as a human being. It was almost like being a prisoner.”

Serena Williams‘ cheeky Harper’s Bazaar cover photo is amazing – and unretouched!

As the TV critic for the New York Times tweeted: “The fact that the biggest story in TV over the next year will be a competition among the decades-old sitcom reruns on streaming TV services really sums up something about pop culture right now.”

-I’m pretty over the Disney remakes, but good on them for not making the new Mulan movie a shot-for-shot remake, and for dropping the original’s problematic characters and songs.
