Cardi B Talks Farts and Family with Vogue

Cardi B did 73 Questions with Vogue, and she really takes you on a journey. Culture somehow manages to stay sleeping during the whole thing while her mom talks about smelling her own farts, meeting Beyonce, loving Offset‘s penis, and her questions for Trump. It’s shot at her grandmother’s apartment in NYC, which is by far the most normal-looking place that Vogue has every done one of these.

-Sources say Brad Pitt and Arrested Development star Alia Shawkat are not dating. Wait, was that even a possibility?!

Helena Bonham Carter is on a promo tour for the new season of The Crown, and it’s been an absolute delight.

-The Grammy nominations are out. It was a good morning for Lizzo, Billie Eillish, Lil Nas X and Bon Iver. Not so much for Taylor Swift, Halsey, Solange Knowles, The Jonas Brothers and BTS.

Emilia Clarke says on the Game of Thrones set, Jason Momoa made sure directors didn’t take advantage of her during nude scenes and made sure she always had a robe between setups. “It’s only now that I realize how fortunate I was with that…because Jason had experience, he had done a bunch of stuff before coming on to this, he was like, ‘Sweetie, this is how it’s meant to be and this is how it’s not meant to be, and I’m going to make sure that’s the way it goes.”

-The Harriet screenwriter says a movie exec once suggested Julia Roberts should play Harriet Tubman. (Somewhere out there Scarlett Johansson is wondering why they didn’t think of her.)

Robert Pattinson said he would pass the time in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia shooting The Lighthouse by reading sex shop Yelp reviews. “There were two pretty highly frequented sex shops…So many people would write about it and this is a town of maybe 400 people — well, maybe a little more than 400.

-Oof. I like a lot of Mimi Leder‘s work (she exec produced The Leftovers) but her dismal of the critical reception of The Morning Show is way off. “I thought there were a lot of Apple haters who just wanted Apple to fail. The reviews felt like an attack on Apple.” That would only make sense if critics panned all Apple shows, but every TV writer I follow seems to be in love with Dickinson.

Jennifer Lopez will be hosting SNL in December (yay!), as will Scarlett Johansson (boo!).

Kanye West is doing press for Jesus Is King, (which a select group of listeners heard in full Wednesday night, so this thing actually exists!), and says he banned sex outside marriage during the creation of the album: “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album.

-In her ongoing trademark battle with a wedding planner, Beyoncé called Blue Ivy a “cultural icon.” I mean, she’s not wrong.

We play with dogs and work on our stuff and go out for walks. I have a very simple life”), and a story about meeting JLo in 1996 before she was famous (“JLo’s album hadn’t come out yet, and nobody had started talking about her ass yet — and I swear I saw her and ran to get my sister JUST to show her how beautiful that ass was — and the moment I pointed her out to my sister, JLo turned to speak to someone and her butt was just above table-level, and her butt knocked over someone’s glass of champagne and she didn’t even notice. It was glorious.”).

-I have not yet seen Brad Pitt‘s Ad Astra but man, so many people I follow on Twitter HATED it.
