-This Ryan Reynolds tweet made me laugh a lot.
-Speaking of Jake Gyllenhaal, he’s reportedly dating a 22-year-old model. Sure.
-Wait, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas had two more wedding receptions this week? Is this just their life now?
-An old video of Chris Rock, Louis CK and Ricky Gervais freely talking about using the n-word on stage has resurfaced, and people are not happy. (Jerry Seinfeld was also part of the conversation, but acquitted himself well by seeming uncomfortable and refusing to repeat the word: “You’ve found the humour of it. I haven’t found it, nor do I seek it.”)
-On the Tonight Show, Felicity Jones attempted some Beyonce moves and it went better than you’d expect.
-Old Beyonce songs were leaked on Spotify somehow, and everyone melted down thinking they were new. (They were not. Bah humbug!)
-Speaking of new music, Rihanna confirmed in an IG comment to a fan that she’s releasing new music in 2019.
-This video of Michelle Obama and Jimmy Fallon surprising people when the elevator doors open is a delight!
–Miley Cyrus just updated “Santa Baby” and turned it into a feminist anthem. “Santa baby, I’d love to know my ass won’t get grabbed at work by some ignorant jerk.”
–Kristen Stewart might have a new girlfriend.
-Uh, did Jessica Mulroney just offer the Daily Mail a look inside her Toronto home? Being Meghan Markle‘s BFF sure is working out for her.
-Aw shit. Cardi B and Offset were spotted looking cozy and reunited in Puerto Rico.
–Dylan O’Brien and Britt Robertson, who’ve been dating since 2012, have reportedly split.
–Demi Lovato took to Twitter to deny the “sources” of a recent tabloid story about her recovery. She added: “Someday I’ll tell the world what exactly happened, why it happened and what my life is like today.. but until I’m ready to share that with people please stop prying and making up shit that you know nothing about. I still need space and time to heal.”
–Colin Farrell used a recent talk show appearance to shine a spotlight on his friend who’s suffering from Epidermolysis bullosa.
-This is an interesting interview with showrunners over the need for Hollywood to learn how to handle sex scenes better. This is a side effect of peak TV: a bunch of writers/directors are now running TV shows who have no idea deal with people management.
-This is a good piece about feeling alienated from a lot of the “girl power” messaging at the movies and TV this year. I follow an academic on Twitter who’s summed this phenomenon up perfectly: plastic representation.
-Tell your mother to stop worrying: Mark Harmon‘s rep slammed the “completely false” rumour the actor is leaving NCIS.
-Congrats to Andy Cohen, who announced he’s going to be a father.
–Busy Philipps received a call from Oprah on her show last night and broke down in tears. Understandable.

–Michael Buble kicked off Carpool Karaoke’s holiday song, which also featured Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Paul McCartney, Barbra Streisand, Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera and Cardi B.
-Yay for the new Catastrophe trailer! The new season starts in January.
-The I’m Not Here trailer is stacked with celebs, including JK Simmons, Mandy Moore, Sebastian Stan and Max Greenfield.
-In the Greta trailer, Chloë Grace Moretz plays a naïve New Yorker who returns a purse she finds on the subway to Isabelle Huppert — and then things get scary.
