Mary J Blige looks amazing in Garage magazine. She says in the interview: “What propels me is being able to get through the hard times, and rejoicing when something major happens. It’s not just about making it through, but coming out strong. Fitter, better, and stronger.”

-Poor Chrissy Teigen and John Legend. I’m horrified by all the flak she’s getting about sharing details about her miscarriage online. It happens to 1 in 4 pregnancies and there’s still such a stigma about talking about it. Most celebs only share sanitized, idealized peeks into their fabulous lives. What she’s doing right now is heroic, and all the haters and conspiracy wackos who are bullying her today are a disgrace.

This thread from a writer who once did a cover story on Paul Rudd makes me want to spend the day with Paul Rudd (more so than usual).

-This is an interesting piece on how Amazon’s Utopia, which stars John Cusack and Rainn Wilson, shouldn’t have been released in 2020 due to its pandemic-related conspiracy theories and anti-vax bent. I didn’t even give it a shot after TV critic Alan Sepinwall tweeted that he’d “tapped out after 3 fetishistically violent eps.” Between this, The Boys, Lovecraft Country and the new season of Fargo, TV right now feels ultra violent and gory, and I have no desire to watch any of it.

-Just because 2020 can’t get any weirder, Cameron Diaz‘s 2011 film Bad Teacher is the top movie on Netflix.

Chrissy Teigen covers the new issue of Marie Claire and talks about stepping away from social media (“I’m barely online anymore, and that was at the request of my therapist. I didn’t start therapy until quarantine. I used to avoid it and make fun of the idea of it, and then I found the right person and it changed my world”), and voting out Trump (“People are very confident in their ways of being open about their racism because they have the backing views of the president. It’s become such a hurtful, weird presidency for so many Americans, and I’m going to fight to get this person out of office”).

-Disney’s Mulan is facing a new wave of criticism for being filmed partly in Xinjiang, the region in China where Uighur Muslims are being detained in mass internment camps. This, on top of reviews from some critics who are questioning why an Asian director wasn’t chosen. This one was making the rounds today: “Were there any Asians on the creative team? An editor? A screenwriter? The composer? Anyone? I think maybe the make-up designer, plus a couple of producers looking to cash in. Whatever. Did I mention how tired I am?”

Zac Efron has been living in Australia for a while, and he has been spotted holding hands with Australian model Vanessa Valladares. I’ve been watching his Netflix show and he kept mentioning how he needed to leave Hollywood so him hanging out down under and starting a new relationshipe? Love that for him.

The donation came days after he announced that he and his immediate family all contracted coronavirus, and while their daughters bounced back quickly, he and his wife Lauren “had a rough go at it.” He said, “I could tell you that this has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family, and for me, too, personally as well. And I’ve gone through some doozies in the past.”

-A former children’s TV presenter in Britain has denied he is the elusive graffiti artist Banksy after a theory posted online went viral. I don’t know this guy but he looks like a Wiggle, which would make it hilarious if true.

Megan Thee Stallion Covers W

Megan Thee Stallion is on the cover of W Magazine’s Music issue. She talks about racism (“You know, anything can go viral, so I really like how we’re able to catch these people doing these disgusting things and put ’em on blast, and people are getting fired from their jobs. It’s like, Yeah, we see you. You like to be disgusting in private, so let us show you how to keep that same energy in public. I like that we get to call everybody out now”), and cyberbulling (“It’s really mind-blowing to see the nasty things that people say to you. I don’t know if people think you not gon’ see it.

Dolly Parton continues to be a gem. She’s funding covid research, vocal about BLM, supporting childhood literacy and now in her Billboard cover story, she talks about removing the word “Dixie” from Dollywood. “As soon as you realize that [something] is a problem, you should fix it.
