-Vogue shot artsy videos of the stars dancing around an exhibit room during the MET gala. The good ones are RihannaCardi BNicki Minaj, and Katy Perry.  The very best one is Frances McDormand dancing to Basement JaxxShe really did look like she was having the night of her life. 

Katy Perry flew Kim Kardashian’s press on nails to LA for the MET gala. That’s true friendship.

-At last night’s MET Gala, the theme was Catholicism and the outfits were nuts. I adored Lena Waithe in a giant rainbow capeZendaya‘s take on Joan of Arc, and Blake Lively‘s burgundy number. But no one made me happier than Chadwick Boseman with hair sparkles, and  Frances McDormand  in Valentino.

-I’m really bummed that Scarlett Johansson broke the A-lister embargo and wore Marchesa, despite the Weinstein connection. She says their dresses make women feel “confident.”

Jay-Z, Eminem, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Aniston and more are demanding money from the Weinstein Company.

-Congrats to Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst, who had a baby boy.

-I don’t even watch Lethal Weapon, but what’s going on with that show is crazy. Clayne Crawford has been fired as the lead of the Fox drama as producers are scrambling to recast the role, and renewal is supposed to hinge on who they cast. Multiple actors have already passed, according to THR.

-All of the original Avengers got matching tattoos, except for Mark Ruffalo, who opted out. (But Chris Evans has a plan to get him “blackout drunk.“)

-The R. Kelly house continues to crumble before our eyes. Two new accusers appeared on Megyn Kelly Today to detail sexual the harrasment they faced: “You weren’t free to walk throughout the house…We were required to call him Daddy.”

-This makes my heart sad: Colton Haynes has filed for divorce from Jeff Leatham after just six months of marriage. Rumours started circulating this weekend after he released a new song about a cheater, and a blind item began circulating. Haynes shut down speculation that Leatham cheated on Twitter, but did not deny the split. Poor guy; he just lost his mother, too.

Kristen Stewart is looking at Cate Blanchett exactly how I would.

-Here are all the references in the new Childish Gambino music video you probably missed. (I know I did.)

-I can’t stop watching this video of Mariah Carey putting makeup on a stranger.

-Why the hell did The Hollywood Reporter gives Jeffrey Tambor and his sexual harassment allegations a sympathetic, soft-focus profile?  “I did raise my voice at times, I was moody at times, there were times when I was tactless…But as for the other stuff, absolutely not.”

-Meanwhile, the cast wants extra compensation for Netflix’s recut episodes.

-Cancel Bear (who is usually spot on about these things) posted his TV renewal predictions for networks. On Fox, he thinks Gotham and Brooklyn Nine-Nine are toast, Kevin will no longer be saving the world on ABC but Quantico should get a pass, on NBC all their new comedies and Timeless are likely done, while almost every show on CBS and CW are safe (minus CW’s Life Sentence and Valour, which were both just cut).

Ta-Nehisi Coates on Kanye West is the one thing you need to read this week if you haven’t already.

-There have been some very, very good takes about what went down at FanCon. Today’s Vulture piece, which failed to interview the BGN writers who quit or the vendors affected, is not one of them.

-Ryan Reynolds using Canada to promote Deadpool 2 in Europe is a good time.

Cher is a scene-stealer in the new Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again trailer.

Walking Dead Fans Shook By Death of Major Character

walking-dead-death-spoiler

-I stopped watching The Walking Dead last year (best. decision. ever.) but Twitter went wild over last night’s big death. Also not impressed? The star’s dad, who slammed the showrunner: “Watching Gimple fire my son 2 weeks before his birthday after telling him they wanted him for the next 3 years was disappointing.”

-Meanwhile, Andrew Lincoln is talking about how his contract is up this season and has yet to be formally renewed for season nine.

-It’s been kind of amazing to watch stars like Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Justin Bieber, Hailee Steinfeld and more rally around that kid who was bullied. But now there’s controversy surrounding the boy’s mom following allegations that she’s made racist posts on Facebook. It does make you wonder why certain stories go viral — and others don’t.

-Last night word broke on Twitter that a celeb chef would be the latest famous dude to fall, with Anthony Bourdain adding “Monday is really going to suck.” Fellow chef Tom Colicchio tweeted “And no one should be surprised.” Then this morning came the news that Mario Batali has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women. His response: “Although the identities of most of the individuals mentioned in these stories have not been revealed to me, much of the behavior described does, in fact, match up with ways I have acted.”

Jessica Chastain says a famous dude chastised her for tweeting  when the Weinstein scandal broke. “I was tweeting a lot at the time and actually got an email from a well-known actor that said, ‘Calm down.'”

-A source says that Matt Lauer is “weak and broken and ashamed” after his firing. I love this song.

-Another woman has come forward with allegations of being groped by Dustin Hoffman.

-To do a Spacey-free season, Netflix had to toss most of two completed episodes and about 5-6 finished scripts.

Josh Homme posted two Instagram videos apologizing after kicking a female photographer during a QOTSA concert.

-I seriously wish Tiffany Haddish was contractually obligated to be a talk show guest every week. Her story about dating a one-armed man slayed me. “Does he live with the X-Men?”

-The Golden Globe nominations are always weird, but there were some nutso snubs in this morning’s announcement. On the movie side, no Wonder Woman or The Big Sick or Tiffany Haddish. Over on TV, no Veep or The Leftovers — but Jessica Biel somehow managed to slide in there?

-Only five women have ever been nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Director in its 75-year history. This year, women were shut out once again. I really thought Greta Gerwig was a shoe-in.

This video of Alison Brie finding out about her GG nom on the set of Glow is pretty great.

-Netflix calling out the 53 people who’ve watched A Christmas Prince 18 days in a row is a bit squicky.  Not only does it reveal that they’re tracking us in a big brotherly way, why are they going after their (most likely) female fans? Squicky, I tell ya.

-Netflix revealed their end-of-year data, and you all watched a LOT of American Vandal. Which is odd, because I feel like it didn’t get a lot of coverage.

This X Files promo with the stars trying to explain Mulder and Scully’s relationship made  me laugh. (“I’d say were kind of back to where we were originally but without the unresolved sexual tension… Because we’ve already had sex.”)

-Whoo hoo! Atlanta’s season 2 returns to FX in February of 2018. I really thought we’d have to wait another year for this one.

-On the flip side, Sophie Turner says Game of Thrones season 8 won’t premiere until 2019.

-Previously.TV is doing old-school, Television without Pity-style recaps and I am SO HAPPY. (And I don’t even watch this show!)

-The trailer for Jessica Jones Season 2 looks wonderful.  It drops March 8, and all 13 episodes were directed by women.

selena-gomez-billboard

-In her new Billboard cover Selena Gomez claims she still has a “true friendship” with The Weeknd after their split: “We ended it as best friends.”  She also talks about her and Justin Bieber finding their way back to each other: “I’m 25. I’m not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life. So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn’t right. But that doesn’t mean caring for someone ever goes away.”

-Speaking of reunited celebs, Chris Evans and Jenny Slate are officially back on according to People, which is as official as it gets.

Blake Shelton is denying rumours that he had a secret meeting with Paul Ryan. Not very sexy, Sexiest Man Alive.

-Lady Bird star Beanie Feldstein wants people to stop complimenting her weight loss. (I realized about halfway through the movie that she’s Jonah Hill’s sister and then that was all I could see.)

-Ha! HBO’s Confederate is now “not actively being worked on.”

-Vogue gave Michael B. Jordan the 73 Questions treatment.

-As Weinstein et. al. fall, why are we still waiting on a reckoning for R. Kelly?

-The screenwriter of ‘Rachel Getting Married’ and ‘The Mummy’ claims sexual assault by Russell Simmons, who now says he is stepping down from Def Jam.

Meredith Vieira once said she found a “bag of sex toys” in Matt Lauer‘s office.

-In the new THR actors roundtable, Tom Hanks says “there are predators everywhere.” He added, “I think eventually everybody who has a production office is going to have a code of ethics and behavior. If you don’t follow these, you will not work here.”

Adam Driver, who basically redefined “emo,” admitted he has no idea what that word means.

-I really liked this interview with Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, talking about how every job she was offered after that had the word ‘girl’ in its title. She found herself having to tell people, “I can write for someone who’s got a penis and a set of balls. Even if he’s just got one ball and a penis, I can write for that guy too.”

-Here’s our first look at Jon Hamm in Good Omens as Angel Gabriel.

Armie Hammer demonstrated how hard it is to dance on film when there’s no music.

-I may have watched this clip of Drake being surprised by the JumboTron a ridiculous amount of time today…

-Speaking of great clips, here’s Kelly Clarkson in Carpool Karaoke. I love the part where her husband surprises her.
