-Apple+ unveiled more info about it’s new TV shows. The streaming service will launch in Nov for $4.99/month (US) which is cheaper than most others. They also offered EW exclusive looks at their new shows, including The Morning Show with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, and a trailer for Jason Momoa‘s blind dystopia series.

Britney Spears has been granted a new conservator after her dad Jamie temporarily resigned — supposedly due to his health issues but this comes days after Britney’s ex Kevin Federline filed a temporary restraining order against Jamie for allegedly breaking into the room of their son Sean and shaking him.

-This costume designer interview about an unnamed “famous actor” is so juicy. “The actress comes into the fitting room, we try this suit on, and she looks at it and decides that she hates the suit because the pinstripe on the fabric is too wide. The pinstripe is making her look fat.”

Based on an original story by Millie Bobby Brown and her sister Paige, Netflix is developing A Time Lost: a film about a feud between two families that comes to a head when one daughter is diagnosed with cancer. Anyone else just hoping that Millie gets to nap soon?

-Is Meryl Streep pulling a Scarlett Johansson? In Netflix’s upcoming film The Laundromat, which debuted at TIFF last night, director Steven Soderbergh has Streep playing a second character in disguise near the end of the film: a Panamanian office drone “wearing prosthetics and putting on a thick pan-Latin accent.” That sounds…problematic.

-Well, this is good news: critics say Joker is too tame to be incel bait.

-Was Joaquin Phoenix referring to wife Rooney Mara in his TIFF speech when he said: “Somewhere here, I don’t know where, is a fervent dragon, and I want to rip its wings off, fashion a blanket and sleep with it forever. I love you. Thank you”?

Kim Kardashian continues to insist it didn’t occur to her that naming her shapewear line Kimono would be offensive.

-This oral history of Vampire Diaries is kind of fascinating — mostly because no one wanted Paul Wesley to play Stefan. Creator Julie Plec says “We were sort of pressured into casting Paul Wesley against our desires,” while Nina Dobrev remembers telling producers after her chemistry reads with potential costars: “I don’t know who I connected with the most but I definitely probably connected the least with that Paul Wesley guy.”

-This is terrible: Riverdale star Camila Mendes reveals she was roofied and sexually assaulted in college.

-Netflix’s new miniseries Unbelievable, which stars Toni Collette and Merrit Wever, is getting fantastic reviews.

Jenny Slate is engaged to someone who is not Chris Evans.

Ewan McGregor is a now-adult Dan Torrence in the follow up to The Shining, Doctor Sleep.

Alanis Morissette Talks Pregnancies and Postpartum

Alanis Morissette Self

-I’ve been following Nicole Cliffe on Twitter for a while because she’s hilarious, and it turns out she’s also a pretty amazing feature writer. Her first big profile is Self’s digital cover with Alanis Morissette, and the result is a really frank, emotionally honest chat that delves deep into the singer’s pregnancies, labors and postpartum episodes. Morissette also talks about how her husband uses the concept of “provisioning” as a way of detaching money/breadwinning from providing for the family, and how her past traumas have informed her parenting strategy (“I talk about this with my kids a lot, the four boundaries being: You can’t tell me what I’m thinking; you can’t tell me what I’m feeling; you can’t f*cking touch my body/you can’t do anything with my body; and don’t touch my stuff”). Definitely worth your time.

-Speaking of cover stories that are worth your time, Janelle Monáe talks about trans rights in her new Paper interview.

-Another great profile is this one on Sienna Miller, who talks about the obstacles she faced early in her career and how the NYT did her dirty by referring to Jude Law as a “fling” and listing her alleged sexual conquests in a profile — but when they profiled Law they called her a “three-year relationship and engagement.”

-Is this Jeremy Renner tweet a joke? Because if he was really trying to transition into music, he would surely hire a professional to make a better video teaser than this. Right?!?

Leonardo DiCaprio got hit in the face with a volleyball and Twitter came through with the jokes.

Mindy Kaling‘s Late Night underperformed at the box office. Between this, The Long Shot and Book Smart, what a disappointing summer for smart, female-focused films.

Cardi B gets as naked as you can appear in a video without getting banned from YouTube in her “Press” clip.

-Everyone is freaking out about The Office leaving Netflix, and how they won’t be able to stream it. Am I so old that if I love a show THAT much, I just buy the DVD boxset and not worry about never having access to it? I bought a season of TV last month that I will probably never take out of the shrink wrap, but I just feel better *knowing* I can. It’s also very strange that The Office and Friends have reached mythical legend status just because of their Netflix popularity with the young ‘uns. I would love for Netflix to someday give that sort of boost to less mainstream sitcoms like Happy Endings or Better Off Ted.

Britney Spears‘ dad is allegedly suing a blogger for perpetuating the #FreeBritney conspiracy theory.

-This is sad: Dog the Bounty Hunter star Beth Chapman has died of cancer at 51.

-The Game of Thrones cast looks horrified when confronted with footage of their younger selves in the first season.

-In his anniversary post to Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban calls her “baby girl.” I read a book last week that I almost didn’t finish for no other reason than the protagonist’s boyfriend kept calling her that and I couldn’t deal with it because it came across as so infantilizing.

This article on the making of Mad Men’s “not great Bob” meme is a treat, with Vincent Kartheiser providing the perfect kicker. (Sidenote: I was once an extra in a movie he was in. He was…something.)

-Orange is the New Black’s final teaser sees Piper adjusting to life outside prison.

Taylor Swift Couldn’t Defeat Thanos

Taylor Swift appeared on the Ellen Show today, where she apologized for once trash-talking Joe Jonas on the show, revealed that she shaves her legs every day, and geeked out over Avengers: Endgame.

-Can we leave Britney alone, for real this time? Britney Spears’ manager says he’s worried about her well-being, he’s not pressuring her to perform and she may never again. “Let her be a civilian for a while. She’s given so much. Give her time.” On the flip side, her mom says that she’s doing “wonderfully.”

-Meanwhile, Kevin Federline is reportedly blocking her from spending more time with her sons until she’d deemed “stable.”

-An arrest warrant has been issued for Stan Lee‘s former business manager, who’s charged with elder abuse.

-In happier Stan Lee news, this is a very cute clip of Brie Larson meeting the late comic creator.

-I’m so behind on the Lupita Nyong’o and Janelle Monae gossip. Are they really a thing? And why do people keep talking about Brie and Lupita? Whoever is or is not dating, I love it all.

-Have you watched Wine Country on Netflix yet? It’s a delight! Busy Philipps had the cast on her show to talk dildos and women directors, as well as drink lots of wine.

-Speaking of the Wine Country cast, Amy Poehler is hyped for a Parks & Rec reunion: “I’m Avengers-style ready to put it on at any time.”

Mick Jagger is 75 and he can still move like this.

-The CW didn’t renew their deal with Netflix, instead opting to shop their new shows to other streaming services (or keep them on their own). A lot of their shows survived of their Netflix popularity/revenue alone; I’m guessing this will be the last season they renew every show on their slate.

-I kind of love that stars are treating their show’s renewal announcements like they’re Constance Wu.

-CBS’ handling of Bull/Michael Weatherly still sucks.

Milla Jovovich opened up about the “horrific” abortion experience on Instagram in response to the new abortion bill signed into law in Georgia, outlawing all abortions after six weeks: “I myself went through an emergency abortion 2 years ago. I was 4 1/2 months pregnant and shooting on location in Eastern Europe. I went into pre term labor and told that I had to be awake for the whole procedure. It was one of the most horrific experiences I have ever gone through. I still have nightmares about it. I was alone and helpless. When I think about the fact that women might have to face abortions in even worse conditions than I did because of new laws, my stomach turns.

-Ooh boy. In a since-deleted Twitter thread, the creator of How I Met Your Mother weighed in on Game of Thrones by saying the reason people want to see a redemption arc for Jamie (and why people rooted for Barney on his show) are the reason Trump is president. What?? Dude, by Sunday GoT may take over your show’s title of the worst finale ever. Just sit back and hope it happens!

Paul Rudd accepts a dangerous mission in his SNL promo.

Miley Cyrus plays a pop star in the new Black Mirror season 5 trailer. Looks like this season is only three episodes, which sounds perfect.
