-In the new issue of Elle, Lady Gaga talks to Oprah about her relationship with Bradley Cooper.

-This piece by Billie Lourd about her mom, Carrie Fisher, is devastatingly good. “Losing my mom is the hardest thing I’ve ever been through. I lost my best friend… And I inherited this weird, intimidating thing called her legacy.”

-I hate that Lizzo’s British Vogue cover is so blurry. I guess it’s supposed to be artistic or something, but hard pass.

-Greetings, Upper Eastsiders! Kristen Bell will return as the narrator on the new Gossip Girl reboot. xoxo!

-Speaking of Bell, I will never be able to reconcile how she and Dax Shepard are so vocal about privacy and protecting their family (as they should be!), but all of their endorsement deals revolve around spotlighting a happy family dynamic.

-Jesus. Not only is there an the increasingly loud whisper network about Jeff Goldblum, now he’s defending Woody Allen: “I think there is a presumption of innocence until proven guilty.”

-Everything old is new again: Mary-Louise Parker is set to return as Nancy Botwin in a Weeds revival. I loved the first few seasons of that show, but no.

Donald Trump Jr. when on The View today and it turned into a total shitshow. Whoopi Goldberg ended up shutting it down.

T.I.‘s daughter subtly responded to all the conversation about her hymen, thanking her followers for their support.

-As a refreshing counterpoint to T.I., here’s Ethan Hawke talking about his daughter’s sexuality.

Drake is the latest celeb to get into the cannabis game: “The idea of being able to build something special in an industry that is ever-growing has been inspiring.”

Jason Momoa tried to teach James Corden how to shoot a bow and arrow and crack an egg with a whip. It went about as well as you’d expect.

-Speaking of Momoa, he still has a job: Apple has already renewed four of its new shows: For All Mankind, See, Dickinson, and The Morning Show.

-And the next Met Costume Institute theme is… time.

-I’m a few episodes behind but I agree with this piece on how surprisingly good Stumptown is.

-Considering the lukewarm reviews the new season of Netflix’s The End of the F***ing World is getting, I’m just going to pretend it ended with last season’s perfect finale.

-This clip of Chris Evans and his brother answering questions about each other made me laugh out loud multiple times.

-I have recently started watching Bon Appetit’s Gourmet Makes before bed and what a delightful way to de-stress at the end of the day! Bless Vulture for ranking all 28 YouTube videos!

-The trailer landed for Vanessa Hudgens’s latest Netflix holiday movie and yeah, I need this pumped directly into my eyeballs.

Elisabeth Moss is haunted by her abusive ex in the trailer for The Invisible Man.

Lana Condor Elle

-In her new Elle Canada cover story, TATBILB’s Lana Candor talks about the pressures of being famous and having to look a certain way: “You’re kind of the first person I’ve talked to about this, but I know what it’s like to have an eating disorder and body dysmorphia — and also what it’s like to be a friend to someone who has that. I think it’s time to give people comfort. You have to eat. You have to stop thinking that a certain body shape is ideal, because it’s not.”

-The review embargo lifted for Captain Marvel this morning, and since then it’s fluctuated between 85%-91% on Rotten Tomatoes. Suck it, haters!

-I absolutely love the pants Gemma Chan wore to the Captain Marvel premiere — but I absolutely believe that she’s the only person who could pull them off. I also really liked Brie Larson’s look.

-Did Halle Berry pull a Ben Affleck with a full back tat?

Kanye West is making a legal bid to “obtain his freedom” from publishers and record companies and it’s easy to see why. There’s a portion of his EMI deal that contractually forbids him from retiring.

-This collection of stories about how kind and awesome Luke Perry was wrecked me.

-The trailer for the final season of Game of Thrones is here and it’s really dark. (As in, it’s literally too dark to see much. Is it just me?)

-Catastrophe starts airing on CBC tonight. God, I love this show.

This video of Meghan Markle meeting a 92-year-old fan is so, so lovely.

-The director of Hereditary is back with a new film, Midsommar, that I will never see because I’m a giant wimp, but the idea of a horror movie that takes place entirely in the sunshine is genius.

Ethan Hawke makes being a hostage look like fun in the trailer for Stockholm.

Ellen DeGeneres Faces Backlash For Defending Kevin Hart

Ellen Degeneres doesn’t usually step in it, but hoo boy did she screw up today by having Kevin Hart on her show and pushing for him to be reinstated as the Oscar host. There was sooo much wrong here. It should have been a conversation about what he learned, how he’s sorry, what he’s doing for the black LGBTQ community, etc. But instead, Hart insisted he had already apologized for the tweets years ago (he hadn’t), while Ellen fed into his conspiracy theories and helped him re-frame the legitimate criticisms of his anti-gay tweet as a baseless onslaught by a mob of “haters”, which just made things worse. (Their insistence that the whole thing was a carefully timed “attack” cooked up by trolls combing through his 40k tweets to find hateful ones irked me the most. Haven’t they ever heard of Twitter Advanced Search? It took me 3 seconds to find this one. And this one. And ALL OF THESE.) The Ringer aptly dubbed their conversation “a baffling exercise in celebrity self-preservation.” This guy also summed it up very well.

-Also, good on Vulture for doing a deep dive into Hart‘s supposed “apologies.”

-Meanwhile, the Academy is reportedly open to Hart hosting as soon as he says the word.

John Legend was the only artist who was willing to speak out against R. Kelly in Lifetime’s docu-series. He tweeted: “To everyone telling me how courageous I am for appearing in the doc, it didn’t feel risky at all. I believe these women and don’t give a f–k about protecting a serial child rapist. Easy decision.”

Brie Larson doing 275lbs weighted hip thrusts for a cookie is a mood.

-All of the covers for W’s Best Performances of the Year issue are so, so good!

-Speaking of good covers, I love everything about Emma Stone on British Vogue.

-Is it the end of the era for celebrity apps? First the Kardashians shut down theirs, and now it’s Taylor Swift’s turn.

-Oh god. Drake may be making new music with Chris Brown.

Remi Malek confirmed he’s dating his Bohemian Rhapsody costar Lucy Boynton.

-TV critics Matt Zoller Seitz and Alan Sepinwall wrote a new book called The Sopranos Sessions. (Their last book, TV – The Book, is my fave coffee table read.) They interviewed Sopranos creator David Chase and when he was talking about the infamous final scene, he called it a “death scene.” Huh.

Gywneth Paltrow got in on the Brad Pitt meme action.

These photos made everyone think Madonna got butt implants, but she would prefer everyone shut up about it.

-Is Marvel really retconning Loki‘s supervillain role? Wasn’t mind control (or at least an altered state) often a little implied in those movies?

-This was a really fun Roxane Gay interview.

-Speaking of good interviews, I could read Ethan Hawke waxing poetic about life and art all day.

-The reviews for Lindsay Lohan’s new reality show have me intrigued.

Elle Fanning and Rebecca Hall star in the Teen Spirit trailer.  (Great, great use of a Robyn song.)
