Mariah Carey Talks Exes and Ellen

mariah carey new york magazine

-In a new interview with New York Magazine, Mariah Carey reveals “My All” and “The Roof” were about her brief fling with Derek Jeter, talks about how ex Eminem doesn’t make it into her memoir (“If somebody or something didn’t pertain to the actual meaning of Mariah Carey, as is the title, then they aren’t in the book”), and recalls that infamous moment when Ellen Degeneres forced her to reveal her pregnancy before she was ready and she miscarried soon after (“I was extremely uncomfortable with that moment is all I can say. And I really have had a hard time grappling with the aftermath”). My fave bit is when she chides an assistant for putting out candles during the interview (“Oh, darling. Don’t put that down there for me, because that is hideous. That is underlighting!”)

-Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran announced that he and his wife Cherry Seaborn had welcomed a baby girl last week named Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. “We are on cloud nine over here. I’ll see you when it’s time to come back.”

-The late Chadwick Boseman posthumously covers People magazine.

-Meanwhile, I knew Michael B Jordan’s tribute to Boseman was going to gut me, and it did.

-Here’s video of Marvel stars remembering Boseman, which aired on ABC after Sunday’s showing of Black Panther.

Trevor Noah and Friday Night Lights actress Minka Kelly are dating, and a source tells People “it’s very serious.” I can see them together.

-Wow. I can’t handle horror, plus I’m not going to the movies again anytime this century but I was hoping Antebellum would get good reviews for Janelle Monáe‘s sake. That is not happening.

-Speaking of not being able to imagine being in a movie theatre, it’s wild to me that the Venice Film Festival kicks off this week and stars have started to arrive.

Lana Condor and Noah Centineo, who are doing reshoots for the third To All The Boys movie in Vancouver, were spotted heading to dinner together yesterday. Good mask usage!

-In case you missed it, here’s Marie Claire’s fascinating profile from April on how Marisol Nichols went from an actress to an undercover child predator hunter.

-The Brandy vs. Monica battle last night was all anyone on my Twitter TL could talk about.

-I am definitely here for the Megan Fox comeback.

-The Friday Night Lights cast shot a voting PSA and reminded everyone that Grandma Saracen is the best.

-I’m a big fan of the rose from Brad Pitt‘s Chateau Miravel, so yeah I’ll try his bubbles.

-In The Doorman, Ruby Rose plays an ex-soldier who befriends a family in NYC and ends up defending them against a gang of thieves.

Niecy Nash Comes Out with Wedding Announcement

Niecy Nash (whose legal name is Carol Denise) made two announcements with one tweet: that she’s married, and that her new spouse is a woman. Love this for her. (Also, that dress is killer.)

This story is wild. Marisol Nichols, who plays one of the parents on Riverdale, has had a side gig these past few years as an undercover agent in the fight against sex trafficking. She’s been working with the FBI and local law enforcement agencies, acting as “bait” by either playing the part of a parent pimping out a child, or impersonating a child being pimped out to a guy who thinks he is about to have sex with a 12-year-old. Sony Pictures Television just optioned the rights to her story.

Brad Pitt’s new girlfriend Nicole Poturalski is reportedly married and in an open relationship. No judgement, but I’m wondering if her husband is now second-guessing their arrangement.

Adele is being accused of cultural appropriation after posting a pic in which she wears Bantu knots. (It’s shocking to me how much she looks like Katy Perry in that photo.)

-Paparazzi who are stalking Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are causing chaos in their small beach town of Montecito.

Channing Tatum wrote a kids book called The One and Only Sparkella. I have a lot of questions about this photo, including why is he reading an empty book jacket?

-These Emma Roberts/Garrett Hedlund pregnancy photos are odd. What are they looking at??

-The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air is the latest series to get a reunion special at HBO Max, following cast reunion announcements for Friends and The West Wing. Will Smith, Alfonso Ribeiro, Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Joseph Marcell, Daphne Maxwell Reid and DJ Jazzy Jeff are reuniting to celebrate the show’s 30th anniversary

-Warner Bros reports that Tenet grossed around $53 million in 41 territories outside the U.S. It’s a good start as initial lowball expectations were around $40 million. Weirdly, according to IndieWire the movie studio has taken unprecedented step of blocking Canadian numbers on industry-standard box-office service Comscore.

-Stars continue to pay tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who played the title role in Marvel’s Black Panther and died Friday of cancer. Meanwhile, ABC’s airing of Black Panther last night was easily the night’s top-rated show.

-Black Panther director Ryan Coogler released a 1,250 word written statement about Chadwick’s legacy.

Jennifer Lopez says she and A-Rod are “so disappointed” at pulling out of the bidding war to buy the New York Mets. (She originally tweeted about it in an all caps statement on Friday night, but deleted it because all anyone was talking about was Boseman’s death.)

Bella Thorne has apologized to sex workers and OnlyFans users and says she’ll speak to the site’s executives to about the new restrictions they instituted because of her. This is a great thread explaining how she’s endangered the livelihood of OnlyFans creators. Basically, she advertised a nude photo for $200 but ended up sending a bikini pic, leading to an unprecedented amount of requests on for refunds on the site, which in turn led OnlyFans to set a new $50 limit on the price that creators can charge for pay-per-view content, and limit tipping to $100.

-I needed this old video of Denzel Washington and Jamie Foxx bonding over Cardi B today.

-Last night’s VMA awards was a discombobulated mix of pre-recorded performances and speeches. According to Page Six, performers who felt comfortable flying to NYC for it were required to quarantine for three to four days before their scheduled shoot, and shot their bits throughout the last week. Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga and Doja Cat all stayed in LA but shot their performances on a green screen to make it look like they were in New York.

-The extended trailer for Supernatural’s final episodes offers a glimpse at new Young Dean and Sam in flashbacks, plus a dire warning from Billie.

-Dave Grohl accepted a drum challenge issued by a 10-year-old British girl on Twitter that went viral.

-Aw man. The second season of Hulu’s High Fidelity series was going to make Cherise the lead character. Now that cancellation hurts even more.

-The first trailer for Netflix’s The Haunting of Bly Manor is here, which reminds me that I still have a couple of episodes of The Haunting of Hill House left.

-In a revealing new interview, Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart opens up about going through heartbreak and depression (“The last couple of months have probably [been] the most emotional few months of my entire life and my therapist [told] me, ‘Your body’s going through withdrawal from love. You’re used to having this exchange of happy chemicals between you and the person that you’re with.’ In moments of my life, I have dropped every ounce of pride that I had just to be like, Love me. Please take the pain away for a day, a second, an hour, just so I can feel that fix again”), and her worries that her book of poetry might be misinterpreted (“I felt the need to write that because I was scared — and I am scared — that people are going to try and create their own idea of what my love life looked or looks like. I’m not saying, My boyfriend fucked another woman. I’m saying, I felt betrayed”). However, she later took to Twitter to clarify that her words are being taken out of context by some and she wasn’t talking about her recent split from costar Cole Sprouse, tweeting “I would never speak so candidly about something as personal as a breakup. That’s incredibly private. I was addressing my depression.”

-Meanwhile, Sprouse posted a photo of her on Instagram with the caption, “Lili and I initially separated in January of this year, deciding to more permanently split in March. What an incredible experience I had, I’ll always feel lucky and cherish that I had the chance to fall in love. I wish her nothing but the utmost love and happiness moving forward. All I’ll say about it, anything else you hear doesn’t matter.”

In a new interview, Jennifer Aniston says she related to the scene in The Morning Show when her character stops herself from having a breakdown  and slaps on a smile. “There have been moments — not to that level of hysteria — but moments of ‘I don’t want to f**king go here,’ ‘I don’t want to walk out onto the carpet,’ ‘I don’t want to be seen,’ ‘I don’t want to be looked at and everyone’s going to be talking about me and judging me’ … that’s real. I just loved being able to walk into it and lean into it and not be ashamed of it, but actually just … it was like … Ooooooooooh.”

Deuxmoi (which is quickly becoming a must-follow on IG for gossip hounds) has noticed that this small IG account that recaps celeb news has some very not-small followers, including Jennifer Aniston, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Jessica Parker. I’ve only checked out the last 3 posts but 2 of those bash Angelina Jolie.

-Here’s a video of Chris Hemsworth hyping you up. I’m gonna watch this every morning.

Britney Spears is seeking major changes to her conservatorship and wants to have her father removed as the sole conservator over her estate, preferring to keep her temporary court-appointed conservator in charge.

Megan Thee Stallion posted a graphic photo of her gunshot wound and called out haters, writing “I got hit at the back of my feet because when I got shot I was WALKING AWAY FACING THE BACK. why would I lie abt getting shot? Why are y’all so upset that I don’t wanna be in the bed sad? Why y’all upset that I can walk?”

-The Glee cast can’t catch a break. Dianna Agron and Mumford & Sons’ Winston Marshall have reportedly split after three years of marriage.

Brandy is on the cover of People, talking up about her decades-long battle with depression following a car accident that killed a woman, and how her daughter Sy’rai saved her. “I remember lying in bed super depressed. I [told] myself, ‘So, you’re just going to go out like this? That’s wack. You have a daughter. If you can’t do it for yourself, do it for her because this is not the way to leave a mark in her life.'” (Also, if you haven’t listened to her new album yet, you should. It slaps.)

Ashley Benson was spotted with a diamond on her finger, leading to speculation that she’s engaged to G-Eazy. (With the mask, I seriously have no idea how any paparazzi recognized her. Should we just assume that any masked celebs who get papped at random spots set it up?)

-This is a very long, very smart take on Veronica Mars’ identity crisis in its later seasons.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently met with several networks, shopping a mysterious project to top execs. Let the speculation begin!

Fiona Apple narrates a short film about how anyone can safely document arrests by ICE to hold the agency accountable.

Travis Scott covers the September issue of GQ and talks about his secret track for Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet and his dream of buying Astroworld.

Tracee Ellis Ross says she fought to make sure her Black-ish character didn’t always look like a traditional sitcom wife. “What I did speak up about from the beginning was, ‘Why am I carrying laundry?’ ‘Why am I the person in the kitchen cooking right now, when this has nothing to do with the scene?’ Even sometimes when it does have something to do with the scene. I started coining them as ‘lady chores.’ ‘Why am I doing the lady chores? Can’t Anthony [Anderson] do the lady chore?'”

-I don’t know why I had no interest in Kenneth Branagh‘s Murder on the Orient express, but I’m down with Kenneth Branagh’s Death on the Nile trailer. I blame Gal Gadot and the Depeche Mode song.
