-Wow, Vogue Japan totally lucked out when they put Hailey Baldwin on their latest cover, having no idea she’d be Justin Bieber‘s fiancee by the time it hit newsstands.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth took a wrecking ball to those split rumors with an IG story.

-Speaking of Hemsworths and social media, Chris Hemsworth secured his place as the second best Chris with this hilarious video for his wife’s birthday. I had serious concerns about her arm socket for a second or two there…

-Romance rumours surrounding Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller feel kind of inevitable at this point, no?

Jenny McCarthy mistook her Google Home for a ghost. She’s swell.

-It feels like it’s been a minute since we’ve heard anything from Rihanna music-wise, but she’s looking to fix that. She’s reportedly working on two albums: a reggae one, and a pop one.

-Crazy Rich Asians’ early word of mouth is GREAT.

-How the hell does a teen-targeting Netflix show that features a girl in a fat suit who only achieves agency once she gets her jaw wired shut and loses weight get made in 2018? How is that even possible? This entire fat-shaming premise is disgusting.

This made me laugh and laugh.

-Director Gus Van Sant was originally tapped to direct Brokeback Mountain, and is spilling tea over which huge stars turned it down. “I felt like we needed a really strong cast, like a famous cast. That wasn’t working out. I asked the usual suspects: Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Ryan Phillippe. They all said no.”

-This investigation into the rumoured American Sailer Moon is weirdly fascinating.

Russell Simmons once told the staff at his yoga studio that he might become “collateral damage” of the #MeToo movement.

Mark Duplass has walked back his dumbass tweet.

-This is a really fascinating read on celebrities and the opioid crisis. “The overall reaction to Prince and [Tom] Petty’s overdoses — and to the opioid-driven losses before them of such other popular performers as Philip Seymour Hoffman and Heath Ledger — has amounted to nothing much when it comes to awakening Americans to the scope of the national crisis.”

-A defamation lawsuit surrounding The Biggest Loser claims that former contestants are alleging the NBC show supplied them with drugs, including Adderall and the FDA-banned ephedra.

-I really liked this piece on why this year TV dramas have had so many disappointing second seasons (The Handmaid’s Tale, Luke Cage, Westworld, Legion, 13 Reasons Why, Jessica Jones), while comedies are finding their groove in the 2nd season (Atlanta, One Day at a Time, The Good Place, Glow). I think there’s something to be said for dramas getting fixated on plot twists (usually dark and grim ones at that), while comedies do better at focusing on characters you want to follow.

-Everyone and their dog is raving about the book My Year of Rest and Relaxation. I’m saving it for the long weekend!

-I’m not a comic book person, but is this really what the audience wants from Titans? A Dick Grayson who murders people and says “f**k Batman”? Because this looks cheap, terrible and certainly not worth signing up to a new subscription service for.

-The is weird: Hulu just stealth-dropped the entire new season of UnREAL. It may still air on Lifetime, but not until next year, if at all. They’re playing it like it’s a Beyonce-style surprise release, but it feels a lot more like a summer burn-off.

Johnny Depp has settled his legal feud with his former managers.

Demi Moore and Cybill Shepherd got in on the Bruce Willis-roasting action for Comedy Central.

Danielle Panabaker will make her directorial debut in The Flash’s new season. Well, they’re not giving her anything to do in front of the camera so she might as well try behind it.

Cardi B, Beyonce and Jay-Z are leading the MTV VMA nominations.

-I missed that Broadway stars were sniping about Lauren Ambrose taking Sunday matinees off during her My Fair Lady run.

-Stranger Things doesn’t come back until next year, but Netflix is already promoting it with a new teaser that introduces a new job for Steve.

-I’m seeing The Miseducation of Cameron Post this week, and the new trailer has me v. excited.

-The promo for an Emma Roberts/Hayden Christensen rom-com might actually be the worst trailer of the year. So naturally, I can’t wait to watch it.

-Speaking of movie trailers, I love this 90s trailer bracket.

Felicity Jones fights for gender equality as young a Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the trailer for On the Basis of Sex, costarring Armie Hammer. This looks, um…not great.

-In his new memoir, Alec Baldwin says producers of the indie in which his character slept with Nikki Reed‘s didn’t tell him that she was only 16 at the time of filming. The producer went on a Twitter rant yesterday insisting that was not the case.

-We’re finally going to get to see Squirrel Girl on TV and Mae Whitman is gunning for the part HARD on Twitter. Get it, girl.

-Meanwhile, Mae was Jenny Slate‘s date at last night’s Gifted premiere.

-I wish Jennifer Aniston would wear something other than a little black dress, but at least the one she wore to The Leftovers premiere was v. cute. Carrie Coon‘s dress, however, owned the night.

David Schwimmer and wife of seven years Zoe Buckman say they’ve decided to take “some time apart.” Cue the endless “they’re on a break!!” jokes…

-NBC’s Red Nose Day programming will include a celeb edition of American Ninja Warrior featuring Stephen Amell, Erika Christensen, Mena Suvari and Derek Hough. A few weeks ago Zachary Levi posted (and then quickly deleted) footage of Amell completing the route and it looked brutal.

Christine Baranski was a delight on James Corden, telling stories about skinny-dipping at her lake house and politely acknowledging that Michael Sheen did in fact name his penis after her.
