Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Are Engaged

-The summer of quickie celebrity weddings continues! Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are reportedly engaged after just two months of dating. And he apparently closed down Tiffany’s to get her engagement ring like he’s goddamn Patrick Dempsey or something…

-A new Ronan Farrow exposé is coming later today, and it’s set to be a biggie. CBS CEO Leslie Moonves, one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, is being accused of sexual misconduct. While THR suggests the investigation alleges unwanted kissing and touching, Farrow suggested the claims in the full story may be more explosive, tweeting: “A quick reminder that I don’t comment on reporting I haven’t published, and if you’re reading about my work from secondary sources you’re often not getting the full or correct story—especially in cases where parties have an interest in downplaying or otherwise spinning.”

Anna Wintour’s final Vogue cover will reportedly be Beyoncé, which is a pretty great way to bow out.

Roseanne Barr doubled down on her race excuse in her Hannity interview. Sigh.

-Today’s Star Wars: Episode IX cast announcement revealed that Mark Hamill would be back (did anyone doubt it?) confirms Billy Dee Williams’ return, added Richard E. Grant and Naomi Ackie to the cast, and most surprisingly, announced that it will use unreleased Carrie Fisher footage. They also didn’t mention Keri Russell, but she’s still involved.

-Los Angeles County prosecutors have concluded there is insufficient evidence to charge Gossip Girl Ed Westwick with rape stemming from those earlier allegations from three women.

Britney Spears serenaded Jimmy Fallon with “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman” in a new episode of Ew!  She looks really, really good.

Sarah Jessica Parker sat down to chat with Gwyneth Paltrow on her podcast, in which they talked about marriage and Cynthia Nixon running for governor.

-I’m here for Ira writing a Neflix show!

-It was a good week for white actresses to be woke on Instagram. Anne Hathaway posted an impassioned response to Nia Wilson‘s murder on Wednesday (“We must ask our (white)selves- how “decent” are we really? Not in our intent, but in our actions? In our lack of action?”), and Minka Kelly defended costar Anna Diop, who left Instagram due to racists.

-The new season of Orange Is The New Black dropped today to mixed reviews.

-BBC Radio 1 canceled an interview with Logan Paul, saying it “didn’t meet our standards.” I’ve actually unfollowed Chloe Bennet on Insta because her stories are all about him cuddling her dog, and I just can’t.

-I love that everyone is pointing out that Amy Adams’ character on Sharp Objects is the worst reporter ever.

-I’m feeling Jennifer Garner‘s opinion of camping in the trailer for her upcoming HBO comedy.

Tom Cruise made James Corden jump out of a plane and this entire video is amazing. Look, if you need to skydive in order to goose your talk show’s ratings, you couldn’t ask for a better cheerleader than Cruise.

 

Britney Spears Shows Off Her Hot Boyfriend

-I don’t know if Britney Spears intentionally timed this photo drop on the same day that Justin Timberlake was facing all the bad press over his Super Bowl performance, but I’m gonna go ahead and assume she did.

Chris Carter says he won’t return to another season of The X Files without Gillian Anderson. You’re goddamn right you won’t. If you even attempt to, we’ll riot.

Tom Hardy’s dog deserves an Oscar for this reaction face.

-The Good Place exists in the same world as Parks and Rec and I couldn’t be happier.

-It’s been a bad week for Quentin Tarantino. He responded to Uma Thurman’s claims in Deadline (which was a crazily fawning interview by Mike Fleming Jr.  and included shit like, “I offered Tarantino the opportunity to clarify because at this moment, stories get written and then picked up across the globe, often getting twisted to suit convenient narratives in this #MeToo moment”). Tarantino said “It’s the biggest regret of my life, getting her to do that stunt. I start hearing from the production manager, Bennett Walsh, that Uma is trepidatious about doing the driving shot. None of us ever considered it a stunt. It was just driving. None of us looked at it as a stunt. Maybe we should have, but we didn’t.” I don’t know how you watch that video, even without knowing that she was warned that the car wasn’t operating well and her seat wasn’t bolted in correctly, and not think “stunt.”

-Also, an older Tarantino interview on Howard Stern‘s show has surfaced, which features the director defending Roman Polanski. “He didn’t rape a 13-year-old. It was statutory rape…He had sex with a minor. That’s not rape…Look, she was down with this.” When Stern and his cohost Robin Quivers pointed out that she was given booze and drugs, he went on to call the child a “party girl.” You know you’ve crossed a line when even Howard freakin’ Stern is disgusted by your answers!

Busy Philipps angrily recalled auditioning for Quentin Tarantino in ‘short shorts’.

-I like Roxanne Gay‘s take on artistic legacies and shitty geniuses.

Reese Witherspoon opened up to Oprah Winfrey about a past abusive relationship. “It changed who I was on a cellular level, the fact that I stood up for myself.”

-First Cloverfield, now Annihilation. It seems that dumping big movies that will probably be flops onto Netflix is the new trend.

-Game of Thrones’ David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are going from Westeros to a galaxy far, far away. They’ll write and produce a new series of Star Wars films.

-I like this article on how Black Panther is a showcase for natural hair.

David Tennant is very scary in the Bad Samaritan trailer. It stars Nathan from Misfits so I’m so in!

-I’m glad that Netflix’s Everything Sucks! is getting good early reviews. The trailer could have gone either way.

Taylor Swift Testifies Like a Boss

-On the fourth day of the trial in which a former radio DJ is suing Taylor Swift, claiming her allegations that he groped her butt during a meet-and-greet cost him his job, the singer took the stand to testify — and she was awesome. This asshole should have  just been grateful that all he lost was his job, but instead he decided to try to make some money off of it as if she wasn’t going to own him in court.

-I really, really hate the outfit Marie Claire stuck Emma Stone in on their cover (what’s with that hat?!), but the inside photos are lovely.

Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder are officially parents to a girl, who they (unsurprisingly) named Bodhi Soleil. Oh, and Ian says he’s totally ready for babies because he has kittens.

-This is very sweet: Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris,  Évelyne Brochu, Kristian Bruun and more of the Orphan Black cast and crew praise the importance of the show’s fans, known as the #CloneClub

-Oh my god, Ringer did an oral history of the time a dog ate a heart on One Tree Hill and this might be the best thing I’ve ever read! My favourite part: [Chad Michael Murray declined to comment for this article.]

Channing Tatum busted some Magic Mike-style moves in a gas station convenience store. Bless him.

Justin Theroux may not be very fun to live next to. His neighbor filed a complaint about endless barking from the actor’s rescue dogs left isolated for long periods, dropping heavy weights on the floor at 3 AM, and angry outbursts.

The Crown season 2 trailer is here, if you’re craving some very slow-paced royal drama.

Britney Spears was visibly shaken up after a man rushed on stage mid-concert. In the video, you can hear her ask, “Is something OK? What’s going on? He’s got a gun?”

Kylie Jenner‘s makeup brand made $420 million in just 18 months, and it’s only getting bigger.

Halle Berry says Storm and Wolverine were lovers in the X-Men films. This feels more like head canon/wishful thinking than fact.

Paris Hilton is gonna have a reality show again? Who wants that? (Speaking of Paris Hilton, I recently listened to a great podcast in which a publicist and a tabloid editor talk about her gossip heyday. The most fascinating thing is that they used to meet for lunch once a week to plan out coverage of starlets…)

-Yass Kween! You can now buy Broad City-branded sex toys.

-With news that Selena Gomez and Elle Fanning are joining Woody Allen’s new project comes this interesting piece on why young stars still want to work with him. They shouldn’t.

Drew Barrymore‘s interview about wine wasn’t THAT bad. This feels very nit-picky to me. (Or maybe I just have really, really low expectations of celebrities who have their own wine labels.)

-Hollywood is calling this box office season The Summer Of Hell. Really? Cause it seems to me like a lot of small-budget indies are doing just fine.

Better Things’ Season 2 trailer has arrived. This show kind of fell under the radar but I adored the first season.

-I fully agree with this article. When it comes to TV shows, plot is bullshit.

Jimmy Kimmel asked Americans to find North Korea…and they pointed at Canada.

James Corden and Jeffrey Tambor recreated the Brandy/Monica video “That Boy Is Mine” with “The Boyega Is Mine” with John Boyega and it literally made my entire day.
