-What’s up with all the gossip about Kanye West with makeup influencers? First we had outlandish rumours surrounding Jeffree Star, and now TikTok makeup guru Cole Carrigan claimed West’s bodyguard instructed him to meet the rapper at a W Hotel late at night — but then he retracted it. That’s one way to get publicity, I guess.

Zendaya on her Historic Emmy Win

Zendaya is stunning on the new cover of Essence. In the interview, which took place a week after her Emmy win, she talks about accepting the award at home surrounded by her family (“I was worried that if they kept screaming for too long, I wouldn’t have any time to actually say anything —but I didn’t want to stop them, because they were having a great time. It was a very special night”), and her hopes for Black women (“For us to continue to fully realize our power and harness it to do great things, because we are incredibly powerful. We’re often convinced that we’re not and taught to shrink —but we have to believe in our collective power. I always think of that Beyoncé song, “They’ll never take my power, my power, my power.” Let’s take that energy into the new year”).

-TikTok Star Charli D’Amelio lost 1 million followers in 24 hours because her family posted a video of a dinner with James Charles, which included a bit in which she bemoaned the fact that she only had 95 million followers on her year anniversary of her reaching 1 million followers.

-I’ve only watched a few episodes of Supernatural, but I’m seeing a lot of chatter on Twitter today about the show ending it’s 15-season run(!) in a way that some fans didn’t love. I’m really hating this trend to lean into man-pain. You don’t need to guarantee a happy ending when you wrap a show, but you should aim to give fans a satisfying conclusion — even if you’re fanbase isn’t who you wanted it to be.

-It also sounds like their penultimate episode fell into the “bury your gays” trope.

Robert Englund of Freddy Krueger fame has joined the cast of Stranger Things.

-Netflix dropped the first trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s We Can Be Heroes, starring Pedro Pascal and Priyanka Chopra.

Emma Roberts’ Pandemic Pregnancy

Emma Roberts is Cosmo’s first-ever pregnant cover star. She talks about getting older (“It’s funny, because I think people to this day think I’m 19, even though I’m turning 30. I don’t know if it’s about growing up as Julia Roberts’ niece or if it’s because I’ve been doing this since I was so young that people see me as younger”), dealing with endometriosis (“I started opening up to other women, and all of a sudden, there was a new world of conversation about endometriosis, infertility, miscarriages, fear of having kids. I was so grateful to find out I was not alone in this. I hadn’t done anything ‘wrong’ after all”) and expecting during a pandemic (“Long story short: I am hungry and tired. Food and sleep do not abide by the normal laws when you’re pregnant. But I’m healthy, which is the thing I’m most grateful for”).

-In Allure’s cover story with Pharrell Williams, he talks about working on Rihanna‘s upcoming ninth album and he makes it sound like it’s actually happening and imminent! He gushed, “Rih is in a different place right now. Like, wow. She’s from a different world.”

Dominic West’s publicist continues to flail. This is getting beyond embarrassing.

-While promoting her new Hulu show, Kate Mara talked about that time she was in a superhero movie. “I had a horrible experience on Fantastic Four. I’ve never talked about it before. I married one of my costars [Jamie Bell], so I don’t regret doing that movie at all. But do I wish I had responded differently to certain things? Yes, definitely…The fact of the matter is that my two horrendous experiences with directors were male directors…And on both of my bad experiences, the movies were 95 percent men and I was the only woman in the movie.”
