Kanye West Calls Slavery a “Choice”

-Ok, if whatever Kanye West is doing is just performance art and not actually him losing his mind, he needs to stop. This isn’t amusing anymore. He just crashed TMZ Live and said “When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years? That sounds like a choice. Like, you where there for 400 years and there’s all of y’all? It’s like we’re mentally imprisoned.” When Harvey Levin is looking at you like you crossed a line, that ain’t good.  (Also, bless TMZ’s Van Lathan for standing up to him like that.)

-A French tourist was sitting alone in a New York City restaurant and ordered a cosmo because it’s Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw’s favorite drink. When the bartender told Sarah Jessica Parker, she paid his tab and ordered a cosmo for herself too. Man, sometimes I still really love her.

Blake Shelton is trying to pretend his “karma” tweet wasn’t about Miranda Lambert. Sure, Jan.

Ashley Judd is suing Harvey Weinstein for due to damage done to her career as a result of his alleged sexual harassment. According to the lawsuit, she felt something “unseen” had been holding her career back and didn’t realize until December that it was Weinstein.

-The cast of Avengers: Infinity War read mean tweets about themselves on Kimmel. Tom Holland‘s was my fave.

Jennifer Hudson Strikes a Pose for Cosmo

-What’s happening with Jennifer Hudson’s Cosmo cover? Is she dancing? Is she fighting? Also, I haven’t read Cosmo in decades but all of those headlines are hilariously bad.

-The Queen won’t let Kate Middleton wear nail polish? Man, I can’t wait until Megan Markle shakes this up.

-This interview with Melissa Leo is bananas. She talks about how difficult women directors are, says the reason she hasn’t been harassed by directors is because she’s “a small-breasted, red-headed woman with little eyes” and gets defensive over simple questions. The reporter calls it “the strangest and most uncomfortable interview I have ever done.”

-In EW’s new cover story, insiders get really candid about why this moment in Hollywood is very different.

-This Sarah Polley profile is all kinds of wonderful.

-Here’s the trailer for the David S. Pumpkins animated special.

-The cast of Ryan Murphy‘s latest TV project is insane. Pose will star Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek and Tatiana Maslany, as well as the largest number of transgender actors in television history to have series regular roles.

-Was the set of Practical Magic cursed?

-Here’s the first trailer for Marvel’s Runaways, which critics are loving. I’m definitely here for anything that puts Buffy’s Spike back on my TV.

 

Claire Danes On Finding Love and Landing Her Dream Role

Claire Danes is having a great month of magazine covers. First was her killer Harper’s Bazaar UK issue, and now comes her Marie Claire cover. In the interview, she talks about how she “was in agony” when she hadn’t acted for two years before nabbing Homeland, and describes her movie-style meet-cute with Hugh Darcy: “[We] met in Rhode Island when it was at its most audaciously beautiful, in the fall. And there was one day when we were bicycling by the water and it was sparkly and idyllic, and I just had this dumb epiphany, like, ‘I’m really just happy.'”

-This is just what Angelina and Brad need right now: Zahara Jolie-Pitt‘s biological mother is reportedly hoping to get back in contact with her daughter.

-This doesn’t seem like the type of dress Amal Clooney would wear if she were trying to camouflage a pregnancy, but my Twitter TL feels differently so what do I know?

Ariana Grande is being mocked (justifiably) for saying she’s the “hardest working 23-year-old” in the world.

Ben Affleck tries to laugh off the Sad Ben meme; still seems pretty sad.

Jason Statham and Gal Gadot‘s Super Bowl commercial may be the one to beat this year.

Ashley Judd‘s Ted Talk debuted online today on how online abuse has spiraled out of control, and whatever you may think of her rumoured onset behavior, it’s pretty compelling. “Online misogyny is a global gender rights tragedy and it is imperative that it ends.”

-Could we finally be getting a movie with Donald Glover as Spider-Man?

Drake has reportedly already met Jennifer Lopez’s kids.

-This Is Us has been renewed by NBC for not one, but two more seasons. I hope every episode revolves around Randall because when he’s not in it (like last night) the show is poorer for it.

John Oliver gets a little help from Larry David and Kumail Nanjiani in his season four promo.

-Star Trek Discovery has been delayed yet again, thanks to The Walking Dead. There’s no word on a premiere date now.
