Miley Cyrus Liam Hemsworth Vanity Fair

-In her new Vanity Fair cover story, Miley Cyrus talks about her marriage to Liam Hemsworth (“I think the reason we got married isn’t old-fashioned — I actually think it’s kind of New Age. We’re redefining, to be f**king frank, what it looks like for someone that’s a queer person like myself to be in a hetero relationship”), reveals that she felt “anger, relief, sadness” when they lost their mansion to the Malibu wildfires last year, and says her new music will have more of a “hip-hop-leaning” vibe.

-Today’s anonymous Oscar ballot piece has a tangent about banging Buzz Aldrin so there’s that.

-I very much enjoyed this oral history of Hugh Jackman’s opening number at 2009’s Oscars. I forgot how wonderful it was, and I had no idea that Dan Harmon and Ben Schwartz were behind it.

-I find it so odd that Netflix plays the “we might cancel this” every year with One Day At A Time. I don’t watch it, but it regularly lands on critics’ best of the year lists and people love it. Why is it the only show they treat like this publicly?

Fleabag’s new season is already airing in the UK and critics are calling the first episode an actual masterpiece. I need it in my eyeballs!

-I really feel like I need to start watching The Magicians after the reaction from last night’s episode, which apparently turned a slash couple into canon? I feel like it’s one of those shows no one reviews (maybe because it’s genre and no one take that very seriously?), but every critic I follow tweets about how much they love it. This pop culture-referencing scene has already sold me on it.

Meghan Markle Goes Rogue

-As soon as I saw the photos and video of Meghan Markle‘s surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards, I knew Lainey would lose it over the excessive belly-cupping. But were the stomach grabs and protocol-breaking dark nail polish her way of trying to send a message?

-The Oscars might move ahead with no host — because clearly NO WOMEN EXIST!

-In completely unrelated news, the crowd who attended Amy Poehler‘s Smart Girls anniversary dinner was amazing.

-If the final season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend doesn’t make my top 10 list this year, it’s going to come really, really close. This gag reel is also a delight.

Elisabeth Moss struggles to get over her split from her girlfriend in Brandi Carlile’s new music video.

-I really like this take on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Everyone raves about that show, but I didn’t make it through the first season. It felt like it was leaning into all of the worst things about the Gilmore Girls.

-Ouch! In an interview with Howard SternJenny McCarthy called out Jim Carrey for not staying in touch with her autistic son after their split.

Gwyneth Paltrow went on the defensive after dropping the n-word on Twitter (to be fair, she was just referencing a song title), and now The Dream is jumping into the fray and claiming he was the one who tweeted it from her phone.

Kristen Stewart calls anyone who mocks her sour expression “voracious, starving sh*t eaters.” Meh, I’ve been called far worse.

-I like Leighton Meester a lot. I think she’s nice and level-headed (especially considering her background). But her styling in her last few red carpet appearances? Ooh, boy. Has she just given up? Maybe seeing someone like Blake Lively get raves for Savages while she’s stuck trying to sell Adam Sandler‘s fart jokes in That’s My Boy is taking its toll.

Matthew Fox continues to have better luck with the law than he does with his former costars.

-The guy who plays Liam on 90210 just got engaged.
