Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Split

-The big news of the weekend was that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are splitting after less than a year of marriage. The announcement came after came after Cyrus was photographed kissing Kaitlynn Carter, Brody Jenner’s ex, while on holiday in Italy.

Hemsworth was approached this morning by The Daily Mail Australia while out in Byron Bay. “You don’t understand what it’s like,” the actor told the outlet. “I don’t want to talk about it, mate.” 😢

-The Morning Show, Apple’s new show starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, released its first teaser. (It’ll be available via Apple TV but the cost still hasn’t been announced, which seems nuts since this streaming service is set to launch in like a month.)

Josh Kloss, the actor who played Katy Perry’s love interest in her 2010 “Teenage Dream” video (aka the best pop song of the last 10 years), shared a lengthy Instagram post detailing the alleged humiliation he suffered at the hands of the pop star. He said she was “cool and kind” in private but “cold as ice” whenever other people were around, and claims she once pants’d him in public.

Priyanka Chopra was at BeautyCon this past weekend and was asked about her previous tweet on the India–Pakistan conflict. Her response was not great, bob.

Kim Cattrall won’t stop talking about another Sex and the City movie — even if we wish she would. “It was a blessing in so many ways but after the second movie I’d had enough. I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t just replace me with another actress instead of wasting time bullying. No means no.”

Lady Gaga is donating school supplies to the communities of El Paso, Dayton, and Gilroy.

-The Teen Choice Awards always make me feel old, but last night’s was especially a doozy. So many YouTube stars I don’t care about!

Chris Evans tweet-flirting with Yvette Nicole Brown on her birthday is very cute.

Olivia Colman is my queen — and now she’s everyone’s. Netflix released the first look at the actress as Queen Elizabeth II in season three of The Crown, out Nov 17.

Sarah Silverman says she was recently fired from new movie after a photo of her in blackface from her show resurfaced. (She’s talked about it before, calling it her most “regrettable joke” back in 2015). “There’s a still of me on Twitter in blackface and it’s totally out of context and I tweeted it when Twitter was new and the people who followed me watched that show and it was from that show. Now it’s forever there and it looks…it’s totally racist out of context and I regret that.”

-Alanis Morissette‘s third child, Winter Mercy Morissette-Treadway, was born last week.

-Based on a Trump remark and some conservative faux-paranoia around a movie no one has even seen yet, Universal has cancelled The Hunt release. This makes no sense — not only have movies like The Purge franchise existed for years, if anything right-wingers should love a film about poor people rising up to defeat rich elites. What’s it gonna take for us to get Betty Gilpin: action star?!

-In happier news, The Farewell continues to be the lil’ movie that could. It has boosted its domestic haul to $10.2 million.

-Netflix dropped the first trailer for My Name Is Dolemite starring Eddie Murphy as comedy and rap pioneer Rudy Ray Moore.

 

Who’s On Team Taylor?

-The Taylor Swift drama kicked into high gear over the long weekend. Swift has never owned her masters and her old music label just sold them to Justin Bieber‘s manager Scooter Braun, much to Swift’s chagrin. Now you’d think Swift would come off completely sympathetic here, since labels controlling artists’ original recordings is a ridiculous predatory relic of the music industry (remember when Prince wrote “slave” on his face and changed his name to a symbol? Or when Paul McCartney lost the rights to The Beatles’ catalog to Michael Jackson?). But Swift muddied the waters with her rebuttal by 1) saying she didn’t know about the sale (which seems unlikely, since her dad is on the label’s board and the head of the label says he texted her the night before the story broke), 2) bringing up all the Kanye West past drama and 3) using Tumblr, of all platforms, to make a statement. I get that a lot of her fans are still on it but this should have been positioned as a business story, not a fandom rallying cry. And now there’s talk that she’s liking anti-Bieber posts that have nothing to do with music rights. Remember when Swift used to be the best at controlling the message? Nowadays, even when she’s in the right (and she’s CLEARLY in the right on the masters issue) it’s not always easy to root for her. The fact that people are actually defending archaic music industry practices over her is a pretty stark sign of how far she’s fallen.

-Celebs are taking sides, with Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato and Sia defending Braun, and Halsey, Camila Cabello, Iggy Izalea, Cara Delevingne, Haim, and Brandon Urie on Team Swift.

Miley Cyrus just dropped a NSFW music video filled with messages like “feminist AF,” “virginity is a social construct,” and “my body my rules.”

-“Old Town Road” rapper Lil Nas X came out as gay over the weekend with his latest song, tweeting: “Deadass thought i made it obvious.”

Joshua Jackson was spotted looking cozy this weekend with Jodie Turner-Smith (who he also posted a sweet IG story with). But I thought he was spotted kissing another girl in a parking garage a couple of weeks ago?

Lindsay Lohan celebrated turning 33 by getting naked on Instagram. As you do.

-Wow. Kim Kardashian actually agreed to change her shapewear line’s name.

Dan Levy‘s goodbye post to Schitt’s Creek is so soft.

-It looks like James Franco might be getting pulled into the Amber Heard/Johnny Depp saga.

-I never thought I’d push for Harry Styles to play Elvis, but I’ll take him over Ansel Elgort or Miles Teller.

Louis Tomlinson wasn’t thrilled about that fanfiction scene in HBO’s Euphoria, in which a character read her fanfic about him and Harry Styles relieving stage-fright tensions through oral sex (which was accompanied by an animated depiction). He responded to fan’s tweets about it “I can categorically say that I was not contacted nor did I approve it.”

-It also seems like someone at HBO pretended to be a teen to infiltrate the fanfic community, which is gross.

Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston keep teasing a new project, which is presumably the Breaking Bad movie.

-The reviews for the new season of Stranger Things are very strong (though I’m a little concerned that there seems to be critical rumblings that Hopper has turned into a jerk).

-Here’s the first trailer Mindy Kaling’s adaptation of Four Weddings and a Funeral. It looks charming. I am charmed.

-There are so many articles lately about the summer box office meltdown. But Late Night and Booksmart should never have been summer releases, and Men In Black and Dark Phoenix were obviously re-written messes. This doesn’t seem confusing.

-Sadness: Sleater-Kinney drummer Janet Weiss has announced she’s leaving the band.

-A new Aziz Ansari stand-up special directed by Spike Jonze is coming to Netflix this month. Anyone wanna bet that he doesn’t even reference why he went away?

Chris Evans’ Embarrassing Headshot

Chris Evans shared his terrible first headshot and the internet is having a field day dunking on it.

Jennifer Aniston revealed her 50th birthday trip to Mexico with Courteney Cox and Jimmy Kimmel‘s wife, Molly McNearney, turned scary when one of the plane’s wheels fell off. She also revealed that McNearney texted Kimmel that she loved him and that he’d “always been an incredible husband” — to which he replied “I just signed up for Tinder, but I promise not to activate it until we know what’s what.'”

-Sorry, ladies. Keanu Reeves‘ rep is denying the quotes in which he said he was lonely and looking for love.

-I’ve never seen Deadwood but I’m so happy for its fans that HBO is airing the movie revival tonight. It sounds like a love letter to the show.

-Not all Game Of Thrones fans are writing whiny petitions. As a counterpoint, fans have raised more than $125K for charity to thank the show’s stars. Emilia Clarke posted an emotional video thanking them for their donations.

Diplo insists he didn’t ruin Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner‘s secret wedding by livestreaming it — despite Jonas and Turner both voicing their displeasure about it in separate interviews.

-The NBA reportedly had a chat with Drake about his courtside antics before the finals.

-I don’t usually get moved by reality TV but between this clip of a blind contestant on MasterChef, and this autistic contestant on America’s Got Talent, I’m a blubbery mess.

Kate McKinnon appeared on Billy on the Street — where she pretended to be Reese Witherspoon.

-It’s supposed to rain a lot this weekend, but at least there’s a ton of good TV and movies dropping: Ali Wong‘s Netflix romcom Always Be My Maybe, Amazon’s Good Omens, and Ava Duvernay‘s Netflix mini-series When They See Us — all which are getting glowing reviews.

-Good Omens star David Tennant being confused by emojis’ hidden sex meanings is gold.

Jon Hamm signs all of his emails “HAMM” and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

-Jesus, John Cleese. It was bad and now you’re making it worse.

-I’m surprisingly loving Katy Perry’s new song. Huh.

Robert Pattinson has officially been confirmed as the new Batman. I have no doubt he can do broody and gothic, but I definitely agree with this thread that it’s a very weird career choice for a guy who’s purposefully eschewed fame/the spotlight thus far.

-Also, I can’t believe the movie is going to feature get another take on Batman’s origin story. I never, ever again need to sit through another scene of Martha Wayne’s pearls tumbling to the ground.

-Wait, Aya Cash is in Fosse/Verdon?! God, I need to watch this thing.

-There’s rumblings of an Ally McBeal reboot. I’d much rather they just stream the original somewhere. Robert Downey Jr. was at his most charming in that show.

-I love that the entire internet is obsessed with Fleabag’s black jumpsuit.

-AMC, which films The Walking Dead in Atlanta, says they’ll “re-evaluate” if the abortion bill goes into effect there .
