Soulja Boy was arrested on Friday for violating his parole.

-Look, between the college entry scandal and James Gunn being reinstated as the director of Guardians of Galaxy vol 3, I seriously can’t remember a week with more WTF? breaking news. Gunn returning to the fold is a good thing; his firing was the result of bs outrage manufactured by alt-right douchenozzles.

Insiders tell THR that Marvel/Disney never actually undertook a search for someone to replace the filmmaker and had gone back to Gunn and made a deal…in secret.

-It’s weird to be at the “all my teen crushes now play dads” phase of life. Freddie Prinze Jr. will play Nancy Drew’s hot dad in upcoming CW pilot.

Alicia Keys‘ son flirting with Taylor Swift at the iHeart Awards is all kinds of cute.

Julia Roberts rightly believes that a movie like Pretty Woman wouldn’t fly these days: “I don’t think you could make that movie now, right? So many things you could poke a hole in, but I don’t think it takes away from people being able to enjoy it.”

-Michelle Yeoh looks amazing in the Master Z trailer!

Ben Affleck, Garrett Hedlund, Charlie Hunnam and Oscar Isaac’s Beach Party

-These photos of Charlie Hunnam, Ben Affleck, Garrett Hedlund, and Oscar Isaac enjoying a day at the beach made me realize a) I will never be able to distinguish Hunnam and Hudlund, b) Affleck’s story that the giant back tattoo is fake and for a movie role gets weaker with every passing day, and c) male celebrities should wrestle shirtless in the sand more often.

-Well, it looks like Terry Gilliam is trash.

-In a new interview, The Flash’s Keiynan Lonsdale, who plays Bram in Love, Simon, talks about representation, Queer Eye and coming out on the set of the film. “I just said it to the group, and they were, of course, really supportive and I explained to them that I wish I had said something earlier.”

-Ellen mortified Jennifer Garner by making her watch her Oscar meme. “What is wrong with me?!”

-I love that this mom has become an internet sensation because of Taylor Swift’s new video.

-Speaking of Swift’s new video, people are noticing a lot of similarities between it and this killer Kenzo ad, which stars Margaret Qualley from The Leftovers and was directed by Spike Jonze. Kenzo reportedly posted the comment: “Listen Tay, I feel you. It’s hard to stay fresh. Call us, we can help.”

-Here’s a look at Stranger Things star David Harbour‘s epic trek  to Antarctica that began as a Twitter joke.

Selena Gomez was spotted carrying a bible to lunch.

-I like this article that makes the case for prestige TV procedurals like The Good Fight, which is having a stellar second season.

Martin Freeman says filming Sherlock is no fun anymore because of its fandom. I’m sure there are plenty of other actors who’d be willing to take that hardship off his hands…

-This is a great look at the pre-emptive backlash against Ready Player One, and how the book has come to represent toxic fanboy culture.

-Why are celebrities still chummy with Chris Brown? Be better, Ed Sheeran!

-I’m a little worried about how Avengers: Infinity War is going to possibly be able to service all of these characters, but damn this is a good trailer. As soon as the trailer dropped, I saw people on my TL shipping Shuri/Bucky and Shuri/Peter. I follow the right people, obviously.

 

Blake Lively is Powerful

-Variety is launching its Power of Women NY issue tomorrow, and the covers feature Chelsea Clinton, Shari Redstone, Audra McDonald, Jessica Chastain, Gayle King and…Blake Lively? One of these things is not like the other.

-Despite those reconciliation rumours, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have officially filed for divorce two years after splitting. Once again, their timing was impeccable.

Charlie Hunnam doesn’t have good memories of his”terrible, painful, expensive” first marriage at 18.

Amy Poehler, Sarah Silverman and Aziz Ansari reflect on the legacy of Harris Wittels in this heartbreaking article.

Robert Downey Jr. looks like an existentially confused Easter bunny and I’m here for it.

-I love this video of Reese Witherspoon calling out paps for their crappy driving. The arm pat at the end with the “you know better; I’ve known you forever, come on!” is peak Reese.

-Speaking of paps, this is an interesting look at how they get shots on closed movie sets.

-Brace yourself: Scarlett Johansson said that running for political office “could be interesting.”

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys continue to be my favourite celebrity couple because of stuff like this.

-EW is ranking the shows in danger of being cancelled and I’m really hoping they’re wrong about Pitch.

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are filming A Star Is Born scenes using the Coachella stages this week. (Is he wearing a fake nose?)

Drew Barrymore remembers the way Coachella used to be. I miss those days.

-I don’t go to Coachella anymore (’cause I’m too old for that shit) but I was visiting my brother and we ended up catching a lot of the live-stream. Despite Radiohead’s technical difficulties at the beginning, the last five songs (including Creep!) were perfection. I also really dug Glass Animals, Two Door Cinema Club, The Head and the Heart, Phantogram, Bon Iver, Little Dragon, Big Gigantic and Schoolboy Q.

-Coachella is always lit when it comes to spotting new celebrity couples. Chris Pine and Sofia Boutella were photographed holding hands, while Orlando Bloom made out with a model while his reported new girlfriend Nina Dobrev looked on. (Sigh. I love her but her relationship choices give me heartburn…)

-This takedown of Vin Diesel is making my Monday more tolerable.

-Wait, is Shonda Rhimes creating her own Lenny-ish site? Sign me up!

Tyrese Gibson has apologized for those “horrible” comments about “promiscuous women”… this time.

-This is an interesting take about why it’s not always great when Netflix buys a movie you really want to see. I don’t disagree that they bury their new releases. There’s a new Joe Swanberg/Jake Johnson movie called Win It All that I loved, but it just hit Netflix and I’ve heard nothing about it. Like, crickets.

Michelle Pfeiffer is stepping back into the spotlight and I can’t wait.

-The teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is very pretty.
