Tiffany Haddish Dishes on Taylor Swift’s Potluck Dinner Party

Tiffany Haddish continues to be the perfect talk show host. On today’s Ellen, she talked about getting invited to Taylor Swift‘s potluck dinner party. (“She can cook. Like the chicken was BOMB! And she made cornbread. BOMB!”)

Ed Sheeran says that Beyoncé changes her email address EVERY single week. Frankly, I’m more surprised that she uses email…

-Meanwhile, here’s the duet Ed and Beyonce released last week.

Demi Lovato is doing everything right. If I was famous, I too would cast Jessie Williams in my music video and fill it with hot sex scenes.

-The woman who played Gail on Dawson’s Creek keeps posting old behind-the-scenes pics from the show and I am NOT OK!

-TV did right by its female superheroes last week, and was all the better for it.

-The very best part of this weekend’s SNL was the “Welcome to Hell” song.

-Well, this is the best possible House Of Cards outcome: The 8-episode final season will star Robin Wright, without Kevin Spacey.  No one loses their job, and Wright gets to end the series as the HBIC.

-As soon as the Kevin Spacey news hit, a lot of attention shifted to director Bryan Singer. (Google their names together — rumours and settlement whispers about Singer have been floating around for years, with Spacey’s name often associated). So lots of eyebrows raised when production on Bohemian Rhapsody (the Freddie Mercury biopic starring Remi Malek) was halted on Friday because Singer failed to show up.  Now comes confirmation that he’s been officially fired from the movie, with THR reporting that Singer and Malek repeatedly clashed due to Singer’s repeated unexplained absences and culminated in a confrontation “which, while it did not become physical, did involve Singer throwing an object.”

-One of Danny Masterson‘s alleged sexual assault victims says a Netflix executive told her this weekend that higher-ups at the company don’t believe the four women who have accused Masterson of rape. Then the exec’s wife wrote the woman a truly terrible email — from her Disney corporate account! For a company as savvy as Netflix, they keep stepping in it with this one.

-A Penguin editor resigned after actress Charlyne Yi accused him of harassment, which he vigorously denied on his blog. So she responded with Tweeting out some serious receipts.

-Gross. Matt Lauer is seeking $30 million from NBC after firing over sexual misconduct allegations.

-This is a good question: why isn’t Hollywood rallying around Terry Crews?

Meek Mill’s request for a bail hearing has been denied. Seriously, how has this judge not been recused yet? This is nuts.

-It’s HILARIOUS that the New York Times is trying to explain what a shipper is.  I first heard the term when The X-Files was airing — the first time around. Also, I disagree with their assessment that shippers only like non-canon couples. This is a way better explainer.

Steven Soderberg his having some issues with his Godless series. First, critics seemed disheartened that it was marketed as a Wild West centered around two badass widows, but turned out to be a dude-focused Deadwood rip-off. Now he’s denying plagiarism claims.

Justin Theroux plays a sexually frustrated astronaut on this week’s At Home With Amy Sedaris. This seems like good content.

-I’ve never watched the TV show The Exorcist, but the fact that the showrunner responded like this to reaction of a gay kiss makes me want to:  “I saw a couple of homophobes on Twitter and my response is, ‘Good, f*ck you. I’m glad you didn’t like it, I’m glad it ruined the show for you. You shouldn’t have good things in your life.'”

-Avengers: Infinity War has become the most-viewed trailer in 24 hours of all time with 230 million views.

-I haven’t been excited by an NBC show for years, but this Good Girls trailer has Christina Hendricks, Retta and Mae Whitman robbing a grocery store so I’m in.

Christina Hendricks also shows up with Gillian Anderson in the Crooked House trailer.

Bill Hader is a world-class assassin in the first trailer for HBO’s Barry.

-Speaking of new HBO shows, True Blood and Six Feet Under creator Alan Ball‘s new series Here And Now has a trailer.

-The first Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom teaser features Bryce Dallas Howard in shoes that aren’t heels. So yay!

Justin Bieber appears to be fully healed since collapsing yesterday in London. First he Instagrammed a photo from his hospital bed (shirtless, natch!), and now he’s back to fighting with photogs. These photos, which are supposed to show the confrontation but actually look like his bodyguard is holding him like a baby, made my life.

-And for those of you keeping track at home, yes, this was Justin‘s worst week ever.

Miley Cyrus/Liam Hemsworth Breakup Watch 2013 continues.

-Oh, and she’s already back on Twitter.

-Just like clockwork, here come the reports that George Clooney and Stacy Keibler are headed for a breakup. Of course they are; the Oscars are over.

-It turns out that Kate Middleton didn’t reveal the sex of her baby after all.

Community’s fifth season is pretty much a lock, judging by their surging ratings (and the fact that NBC has no idea what they’re doing.)

Selena Gomez told a sweet story about how when she was an adorable little kidlet, her dad used to take her to Hooters to pick up waitresses.

Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon‘s Mexican vacation included “tons of fitness classes” and something called Bikini Boot Camp. As everyone who’s ever been to Mexico knows, they’re doing it wrong.

Jessica Biel may have just accomplished what Kim Kardashian will never do: get Beyonce to like her.

-Here’s the first behind-the-scenes look at Breaking Bad‘s final season.

-I can’t wait until the new EW hits my mailbox! Michael Douglas and Matt Damon are fabbing it up as Liberace and his lover on the cover.

-Hal Johnson and Joanne Mcleod of “Body Break” fame auditioned for The Amazing Race Canada. Somebody please make this happen!

-Despite reports that Elisabeth Hasselback has been shown the door on The View, her reps are denying any imminent departure.

-I’m digging the SXSW trailer for I Give It A Year,  a comedy about the first year of
marriage starring Rose Byrne, Anna Faris and Simon Baker.

-Suri’s Burn Book FTW!

-I really liked this article with Chris Hardwick discussing his favourite episodes of his podcast.

Danielle Fishel (aka – Boy Meets World‘s Topanga) is wearing a whole lotta nothing on the cover of Maxim.

–Who gave Alexander Skarsgård a black eye? Does he need me to hurt anyone for him?

-The first trailer for The Hangover III has arrived.

-What exactly is Eva Longoria doing in this commercial?!

Christina Hendricks is going to star in a movie about Joan Didion. Happy International Women’s Day!

-The trailer for Sofia Coppola‘s The Bling Ring, which stars Emma Watson as one of the privileged teens who broke into celebrity homes, has arrived.
