Taylor Swift Reps Her Favourite Things in EW

Taylor Swift EW

-I’m impressed that Taylor Swift actually allowed a journalist to interview her for her new EW cover (a rare occurrence in Hollywood these days). She wears buttons that represent everything she’s loving pop culture-wise these days, including Killing Eve, Fleabag, King Princess and Sally Rooney. (Someone’s gonna have to explain the appeal of Rooney’s Normal People to me. Folks are losing it over that book, which I thought was ok.)

-I’m with Swift when it comes to Fleabag. I recently binged the second season in a weekend, and it was definitely the best thing I’ve watched so far this year. The glowing reviews the final season (which arrives on Amazon Prime May 17) is getting are on point.

Swift’s single “Me!” came in second place on the Billboard charts, which is kind of shocking.

-Pose star Indya Moore opens up about their harrowing childhood in the new issue of Elle. They entered the foster system at 14 and was sex trafficked at age 16 to obtain hormone replacement therapy: “I didn’t understand what sex trafficking was at the time. The language I knew was that they were, basically, my pimps. I was just a kid.”

-All the sighs. CBS just renewed Bull despite those sexual allegations against Michael Weatherly that resulted in a payoff to Eliza Dushku. In (presumably) related news, Steven Spielberg has quit as exec producer.

Keanu Reeves doesn’t seem happy that his taxi ride with fellow stranded airport passengers went viral. As he (awkwardly) said, “Someone being spying.”

-Kimmy Schmidt is coming back to Netflix for an interactive movie. As much as I liked that show I … don’t want this?

Tom Holland and the cast of Spider-Man: Far From Home surprised guests at Disneyland, and it was all very cute.

-Congrats to Hilary Duff, who just got engaged.

-People think that little Prince George accidentally revealed Archie’s name back in January.

Seth Rogen just won Twitter.

-Sorry ladies, but it looks like Michael B Jordan is dating model Cindy Bruna.

-Whelp. I will not be watching It: Chapter Two because I’m a wimp and this trailer alone did me in.

College Entrance Scheme Ensares Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin

-This story is INSANE! Hollywood actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are among the over 50 people indicted nationwide in the college entrance scheme involving parents who paid bribes and/or arranged cheating on SAT exams to get their kids into elite colleges. They are charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. Huffman was arrested at her home this morning (hubby William H Macy was not arrested), while Loughlin is flying to LA from Canada and is expected to be arrested when she lands. This is HUGE.

Hailey Bieber uses moisturizer made from her own blood. Is that a thing? Celebrities are weird.

Idris Elba is denying reports that he signed on for a film by Max Landis, who was accused of sexual misconduct: “It was a rumor.”

Clayne Crawford, who was replaced on Lethal Weapon due to reported bad behaviour, is already getting another shot at TV. White men can’t fail.

-An Orphan Black spinoff is on the way.

Michael Sheen is trying to erase the stigma of dads talking to their teen daughters about menstruation, and I love it!

Courteney Cox‘s daughter Coco took the stage to perform “Chasing Cars” with Snow Patrol.

Eliza Dushku wants everyone to know coming forward doesn’t mean “ending your career.”

-The new Aladdin trailer is not make me any more optimistic about this thing.

Will Smith’s Genie Fails to Impress

-EW has our first look at Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin, and the internet is not impressed. Will Smith tried to calm fans’ fears, explaining in a Facebook post that his character will be blue in the final film, and that the images in the EW issue show the Genie in his human disguise.

Eliza Dushku penned an explosive response to her allegations of sexual harassment by Bull star Michael Weatherly, accusing him and showrunner Glenn Gordon Caron of pushing a “deceptive” narrative and retaliating against her for “simply asking to do my job without relentless sexual harassment.” Her description of Weatherly’s carefully planned humiliation of her during a champagne toast is especially gross.

-Why is CBS even hesitating on a salary bump for the stars of Mom? That network cannot afford to lose its only female-focused show these days.

-Also, most of CBS’ management remains in place, despite a year of insane misconduct allegations.

-SMILF creator Frankie Shaw has been cleared in an internal investigation by ABC Studios after allegations she ran a toxic set.

-Meanwhile, this is a good thread on a showrunner’s responsibilities when it comes to sex scenes. I don’t know any other industry where someone is allowed to be in charge of that many people, but given zero management training.

Meaghan Markle reportedly stopped Queen Elizabeth and her staff from intervening when her dad started misbehaving in the press.

Josh Henderson won’t be facing burglary charges after authorities declined to prosecute the case due to “insufficient evidence.” He insisted it was a case of mistake identity and he was not in the grainy surveillance footage from his neighbor’s break in.

-This James Corden bit with Emily Blunt and Lin Manuel-Miranda performing 22(!) musical numbers in 12 minutes is insane.

-Disney is teasing that they may revive Marvel’s Netflix shows. I don’t believe them.

-The Timeless 2-hour movie airs tomorrow night, and critics who got screeners LOVE it.

-The writers behind SNL’s Weezer sketch with Matt Damon explain how it came to be.

-The season 6 Drunk History trailer features Evan Rachel Wood, Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood, Jack McBrayer, Amandla Stenberg and Will Ferrell.

Sandra Bullock‘s solution to the Oscars not having a host is kind of brilliant: random actors should be pulled out of the audience to cover a segment of the show. Organizers “don’t even have to tell them it’s happening, just put up the teleprompter, and go, ‘It’s your turn. You’re an actor, figure it out.'”

Rachel McAdams wears Versace while pumping breast milk in her new photo shoot.

Janelle Monae talks about how speaking candidly about her sexuality in the media has made her “uncomfortable” but explained “I’ve always been a private person. But when you make art that’s so personal, folks wonder how much of this is your real life versus the concept.”

-The Family Stone is one of those movies I didn’t like when it first came out, but find myself getting sucked into it every year. So I very much appreciated Sarah Jessica Parker’s deep-dive into the making of it.

-Here’s the first trailer for Hellboy featuring Stranger Things’ star David Harbour as the titular hero.
