Britney Spears reportedly “doesn’t want to work” out of resentment for her father and the rules of her conservatorship. I don’t blame her; if she creates new music, he’ll profit from it and she’ll still be stuck getting a monthly allowance.

Kate Beckinsale shared a terrible story about how Harvey Weinstein reacted days after she showed up to the Serendipity premiere (which took place shortly after 9/11), in a white suit. “He started screaming ‘you stupid fucking C*NT, you C*NT you ruined my premiere.’ I had no idea what he was talking about and started to shake. He said, ‘If I am throwing a red carpet you get in a tight dress, you shake your ass you shake your tits you do not go down it looking like a fucking lesbian you stupid fucking c*nt.’ I tried to say ‘Harvey, the city is on fire, people are still looking for their relatives none of us even felt the premiere was appropriate much less coming out dressed like it’s a bachelor party.’’ He said, ‘I don’t care – it’s my f–king premiere and if I want p*ssy on the red carpet that’s what I get.'”

-Meanwhile, it feels wildly irresponsible of Kristen Bell to share this post. Maybe she was just trying to stop the panic but it implies older and/or immune-compromised people don’t matter. This thing is bad (maybe worse than we thought) and healthy people need to do their part to protect those who are vulnerable so our hospitals don’t get overloaded like in Italy. (I really liked this article: “Young and Unafraid? Good For You. Now Stop Killing People“)
