Ellen Pompeo dancing to Ariana Grande on the Grey’s Anatomy set is the cutest thing you’ll see today.

-During a pop-up show last night in New York City, Aziz Ansari finally addressed that Babe.net article, and he said all the things he should have said when he first resurfaced, including “It made me think about a lot, and I hope I’ve become a better person…If that has made not just me but other guys think about this, and just be more thoughtful and aware and willing to go that extra mile, and make sure someone else is comfortable in that moment, that’s a good thing.”

-It’s a big week for Priyanka Chopra. Not only is she getting married in two days, but she also landed on the new cover of Vogue (marking the first Indian woman to be on Vogue America’s cover). In the joint interview with Nick Jonas, she talks about how their first date was “too respectful” (“We hung out for a couple of hours. He patted my back before he left”) and talks about letting the public in on relationship details (“I’ve had that rule my whole life: Never publicly acknowledge a relationship. Ever. What is happening? I’ve not known myself like this. This guy turned me into such a girl! If I could blush, I’d be tomato red right now”).

-Do you think Mariah Carey’s kids will one day view “All I Want for Christmas” the same way Hugh Grant’s character in About a Boy views his dad’s holiday jingle?

-This deep-dive into the Aziz Ansari controversy is an interesting read. Not only did the story reveal some pretty disheartening opinions about consent, but it also made it clear how much it matters which outlets are covering this issue and how. (Clearly Babe.net didn’t know how to handle this story.)

-Meanwhile, The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil wrote a great piece on her website called “What We Need to Learn from the Aziz Ansari Clusterfuck,” in which she writes: “Our society, the internet, and even our most mainstream media, constantly perpetuate the idea that men do not need to worry about what our needs and boundaries are. They just need technical consent, however that consent is acquired. CONSENT SHOULDN’T BE THE GOLD STANDARD.”

-In last night’s opening, Samantha Bee  ripped into Aziz and how people are using it to detract from the Me Too movement. (“[Men], if you say you’re a feminist, then f**k like a feminist. And if you don’t wanna do that, take off your f**cking pin, because we are not your accessories.”) She also talked about the Shitty Media Men list, which I don’t think any other late night hosts have touched.

Matt Damon said this week on the Me Too movement: “Boy, I really wish I’d listened a lot more before I weighed in on this.” We wish that too, Matt.

-The Love, Simon trailer is very charming. I liked that book (Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda) a lot.
