lilly_singh_youtube-thr2

-In the new Hollywood Reporter cover story, Canadian YouTube star-turned-late night host Lilly Singh opens up about being the first openly bisexual woman of colour to host a late night talk show.

-It’s really over: Liam Hemsworth officially filed for divorce from Miley Cyrus.

Taylor Swift confirmed her plans to re-record her masters following the Scooter Braun debacle.

-Speaking of Taylor, I really liked this look back at the last decade of her career, featuring commentary from Lainey, Allie Jones, Brittany Spanos and more.

Jessica Mulroney is jumping to BFF Meghan Markle’s defense against “racist bullies.”

James Van Der Beek is going to be on Dancing with the Stars??! Oh Dawson, no.

-Also, host Tom Bergeron called out ABC for casting Sean Spicer, which is all well and good but should he have done more than just distance himself from the decision?

-A bunch of celebs fell for an Instagram hoax yesterday.

– I really like Italia Ricci.

-There’s a lot of he said/she said coming out of the Jamie Foxx/Katie Holmes split.

Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson has been named the highest earning actor for the second year in a row which isn’t surprising. I am a little surprised that Paul Rudd cracked the top 10.

-This trailer for Bombshell, which recounts the Fox News scandal in which numerous female staffers accused Roger Ailes of sexual harassment and misconduct, is phenomenal. Megyn Kelly (a nearly unrecognizable Charlize Theron), Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman), and a fictional staffer named Kayla Pospisil (Margot Robbie) tensely ride an elevator, knowing that Kayla is on her way to blow the whistle.

Celebs Celebrate InStyle

-This is a really good week for cover stories. For InStyle’s 25th anniversary, they gathered a bunch of stars to look back on their favourite covers, including Jennifer Garner, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Aniston, Kerry Washington, Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Gwyneth Paltrow, and more. All of the videos are great, but the Garner one is gold.

-Speaking of good cover stories, Woody Harrelson tells Esquire that turning down the lead in Jerry Maguire is his biggest career regret.

-Vanity Fair’s Power of Young Hollywood covers feature Cole Sprouse, Stephan James, and Camila Cabello.

Nic Cage did an interview with the New York Times that has to be read to be believed.

-I also dug this profile of Nicholas Braun, who plays Cousin Greg on Succession (though he will always be Cameron from the TV version of 10 Things I Hate About You to me).

Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin are still going strong. Huh.

Jacob Tremblay mistaking Tobey Maguire for his lawyer is giving me life.

Justin Theroux opened a hipster “dive bar” which seems very douchey and therefore very on-brand.

-Apparently the Pitch revival came close to happening but couldn’t find a home at Disney. Frankly, I’ve been so disappointed by reboots and revivals recently that I’m ok with this.

-The Rookie actress Afton Williamson says she won’t be returning to the ABC drama starring Nathan Fillion, claiming that she faced racial discrimination from the hair department and exec producers, and sexual harassment from a recurring guest star, which escalated at the wrap party.

Tiffany Haddish is shooting in Toronto and she’s been hanging out at the gym because the men are hot. She clearly goes to a different gym than me.

Melissa McCarthy saw if we want more women-led movies, we have to buy more tickets to them. She’s not wrong, but I think there’s a bit more to it than that.

-The Ryan Murphy-produced American Crime Story is coming back — and the focus will be on the Clinton presidency scandal, with Monica Lewinsky on board to produce. The cast is stacked: Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp; Beanie Feldstein as Lewinsky; and Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones. I only wish it wasn’t airing in the final weeks leading up to the 2020 election, which seems like a *really* bad time to remind everyone what a human tire fire Clinton could be.

-This is surprising: the 90210 reboot, which premieres tonight, is getting reviews that range from mildly positive to positive to glowing.

Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz and Oscar Isaac lend their voices to The Addams Family trailer.

Big Little Lies Gets Big Coverage in InStyle

-The cast of Big Little Lies each get covers for the new issue of InStyle, in which Reese Witherspoon says she recently fought for an actress to get equal pay (“She’ll never know I made that call or had that conversation with the head of a studio. But I said to him, ‘This is the comp. This white guy over here is making this amount of money, and she’s done this, that, and the other with such success – and you’re asking for her to have a third of that. That’s not okay with me'”), while Nicole Kidman shares relationship advice (“The greatest thing our family priest told us very early on in our marriage was, ‘Always kiss hello and kiss goodbye.’ It just keeps you connected”). The video is cute too — I like Reese’s stance on visible Spanx.

Kidman also did an interview with Australian Women’s Weekly, in which she says that Hugh Jackman helped her get over Tom Cruise. “When I got divorced, Hugh and Deb were so much a part of my healing. They were some of my best friends through that period.”

-I tuned into most of the Billboard Music Awards and they were a trip: Madonna‘s $5 million holograms freaked me out; Paula Abdul‘s dance party proved that 56-year-olds can still move; and Drake tried to steal some of Ayra Stark’s shine.  Plus, new mom Cardi B looked amazing— but I couldn’t stop staring at her abs. Real, or real with contouring help? Either way, I’m envious!

-I can’t get enough of the footage of Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’ surprise Vegas wedding after the Billboard Music Awards. The Elvis impersonator! The ring pops! Her pantsuit! I’m guessing another ceremony is coming because Turner’s previously mentioned that Maisie Williams would be her bridesmaid (Us Weekly claims there’s something being planned in France), but this is awesome.

-Speaking of surprise weddings, Jude Law just got married.

Kelly Clarkson said she was miserable during the making of From Justin to Kelly. “I cried. I talked to many lawyers and could not get out of the movie.”

-Has Baby Sussex arrived? The palace says no; the internet doesn’t believe them.

Justin Bieber opened up about anxiety in a new IG post.

-It really cute that Jared Leto is pretending he’ll ever get a shot at playing the Joker again.

-Crazy Rich Asians star Henry Golding says his first kiss was soundtracked by a Celine Dion song and I love him even more now.

-The Met Gala takes place next week on my birthday, and the theme (Camp: Notes on Fashion) is the best gift of all!

-Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie looks amazing on the cover of British GQ.

-Lol: After the internet torched the character design in the new Sonic the Hedgehog trailer, the director took to Twitter to promise that they would fix it.

-In a new interview with Shape, Anne Hathaway talks about slowing down and not filling pressure to constantly work after she had her son.

-Critics are mostly liking Dead to Me, Netflix’s new comic thriller starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini as women who befriend each other at a grief support group.

-Aw man, Chewbecca actor Peter Mayhew of Star Wars has passed away at 74.

-YASS! Glen Powell, Zoey Deutch and the filmmakers behind Netflix’s Set It Up are teaming up again for a new rom-com.

-Speaking of romcoms, Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron‘s new movie Long Shot is getting lots of love from critics.

-The This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman just inked a massive nine-figure overall deal with Disney’s 20th TV — and a revival of Pitch remains on the table!

-A Pakistani teen in 80s Britain discovers the joy of Bruce Springsteen in the trailer for the Sundance hit Blinded By The Light. People LOVE this movie.
