Blue Ivy and twins Rumi and Sir made a brief appearance in Beyonce‘s behind-the-scenes Vogue clip (which Bey had total control of, remember?).

-Crazy Rich Asians is now tracking to post a five-day debut of $26 million-plus, according to the latest pre-release surveys. That’s up from $20 million projections just a few weeks ago.

-TIFF announced their opening and closing night films, and they’re both doozies. The fest will open with Outlaw King starring Chris Pine as 14th-century Scottish outlaw hero Robert the Bruce, who reclaimed the throne from the English crown and its army. It’ll close with Jeremiah Terminator Leroy, starring Laura Dern as an author who writes under a fictionalized persona, a young queer man named JT LeRoy. Kristen Stewart plays her boyfriend’s androgynous sister who agrees to be JT in the public eye. This image alone sold me.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper Talk Friendship, Death and Streisand

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper A Star Is Born

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are covering EW’s fall movie preview, in which they talk about their friendship, the day Barbra Streisand came to set of A Star Is Born, and Gaga losing her friend to cancer the day of her big performance scene: “We were supposed to shoot in, like, 30 minutes, and I left the set because her husband called me and I could hear her in the background and I just got in the car and drove. I missed her by 15 minutes and she died. I literally laid with her, with her husband, and their dog, and his son… When I came back, Bradley was so gentle with me and we got through it. I performed the song. He was like, ‘You don’t have to do it again. It’s okay.’ All I ever wanted to do was sing. I’ll never forget that day. It was really a special scene, and I’ll always remember that moment.”

-Angelina Jolie‘s team is striking back against Brad Pitt‘s claims that he’s paid her millions: “Brad was asked to assist in the expense of a new home for Angelina and the children, but instead he loaned Angelina money, for which he is charging her interest on a payment plan…A loan is not; however, child support and to represent it as such is misleading and inaccurate.”

Madonna does not hold back when talking about the state of music today: “Everything’s so formulaic, and every song has 20 guest artists on it, and everyone sounds the same.”

-Reviews are starting to come in for Crazy Rich Asians and it’s currently at 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. I. CANNOT. WAIT.

Gabrielle Union was asked to host a Crazy Rich Asians screening and she turned it down for the best possible reason, in the best possible way: “We will pay for a screening, we will support it, we will amplify it, but it should be an Asian celebrity or influencer or business person that you’re looking to and the rest of us should be amplifying that message.”

-This is a great cover story on Blackish star Yara Shahidi.

-Speaking of great cover stories, Time’s profile of Spike Lee is a bomb read.

-As the writers prep for the third season of Atlanta, Stephen Glover, Donald Glover’s younger brother and a writer and producer on the show, says that the comedy will get “weirder.” After the Teddy Perkins ep, I’m not sure how that’s possible.

-In a new interview with Hollywood Unlocked, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star K. Michelle talked about dating Idris Elba. When asked about their sex life, she sat up and exclaimed, “Amazing head. It was good! I remember that head!” Can she do all the interviews from now until forever?

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are such a force to be reckoned with, South Carolina schools are letting kids out early the night of their concert.

-God, I love that Natasha Rothwell is blowing up. She’s the best thing about Insecure, a show that’s already filled with good things.

-While the Guardians of the Galaxy cast is signing open letters in support of James Gunn, their fellow Avengers Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth reportedly unfollowed him.

-I kind of love that this nonsensical Tom Cruise interview answer has gone viral.

-Meanwhile, Mission Impossible: Fallout launched with a series-best opening of $61.5 million.

-On Anna Faris’ latest podcast (which was taped at Comic Con), Arrow star Colton Haynes opened up about losing his mother and going through a divorce around the same time. (It’s weird that outlets are picking up that bit; I listened to that episode and I was way more interested in the part where his costar Stephen Amell admitted for the first time publicly that he was married before, said “I still fucking love my ex [wife]” and talked about how she was the most important thing that happened to him besides his daughter being born. It made me hope his current wife never hears it.)

-Speaking of podcasts, it’s super rich that Marc Maron might join the Joker cast. I was just listening to his episode with Paul Rudd and he kept inferring that Rudd just did Ant Man for the paycheck because superhero movies are dumb.

Robert Pattinson and Suki Waterhouse are dating. Huh.

Billy Talent, City & Colour, Pup and more are pulling together a benefit concert for the Danforth.

-Meanwhile, Meredith Vieira said “I never personally heard anything, but that means nothing. Somebody can be one way with you and very different with another person.” Which ties in perfectly with this Vox piece.

-Celebs reading mean tweets about themselves is a big thing, but I’d much prefer to watch Christine Baranski reading nice tweets people wrote about her. That last one made me a little teary.

-In her Vulture interviewKristen Bell teases The Good Place’s new season, talks about her plan for a Bad Moms sequel, and reveals what it’s like to text with Cher.

Kim Kardashian was told she looked anorexic and took it as a compliment. That’s swell.

-I love that Seth Rogen is becoming the voice of Canadian transit. First he took over for the Vancouver system when they dropped Morgan Freeman following his sexual harassment allegations, and now he’s doing Toronto’s subway announcements. This might make me 0.04% less annoyed when someone’s being scolded for blocking the doors.

Alan Alda revealed he has Parkinson’s disease in an appearance on CBS This Morning Tuesday.

-One of the biggest disappointments of the TV season was Dietland, which started out so strong but got so bad that I just stopped watching a few episodes ago. According to reviews, it didn’t rebound in this week’s finale.

-The new Venom trailer shows off much more of Tom Hardy’s take on the Marvel anti-hero. It still looks bad.
