Prince George Turns 7

Prince Harry‘s team is calling claims he mishandled Royal funds “deeply offensive.”

Kim Kardashian posted an IG story about Kanye West, citing his bipolar diagnosis and asking for compassion and empathy. It was incredibly well-written and sympathetic, but this part made me fear that she’s still onboard with his presidential run: “Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.”

-People magazine is reporting that both Kim and Kanye are considering divorce. E! News says the pair have been spending time apart.

Jamie Lynn Spears defended her sister Britney after a commenter posted about her “obvious mental illness.” Jamie replied: “You have no right to assume anything about my sister, and I have NO right to speak about HER health and personal matters. She is a strong, badass, unstoppable woman, and that’s the only thing that is OBVIOUS.”

-According to Us Weekly, Ellen DeGeneres’ staffers are “loving” that people are coming forward with claims she’s not nice.

Dave Grohl penned an article for The Atlantic on how teachers need to be protected when schools reopen.

-Meanwhile, Dave‘s daughter can sing!

This is a good piece on how Dave Franco praising three ’90s romcoms (all by white filmmakers) and talking about how he wants to “elevate” the genre ignores the BIPOC voices already refreshing this genre. I don’t know how you can look at the romcom resurgence of the last few years — with movies like Always Be My Maybe, The Big Sick, The Lovebirds, and Crazy Rich Asians — and think you need to jump in and make it better.

-In an interview with Katy Perry, Howard Stern brought up Orlando Bloom‘s nude paddleboating pics from a few years ago. She told him: “It was Europe! We had had a pretty chill time and everywhere we looked, it was like ‘Everybody was naked! It was Europe! It was Italy!’ and I think he wanted to fit in with the locals.”

-Speaking of Orlando Bloom, he confirmed that his missing dog has passed away.

Jennifer Garner got teary-eyed as she worried about how the pandemic is affecting her children in an emotional video.

-Vox’s Emily VanDerWerff talked to over 50 fans of The Office, as well as folks who worked on the show, to find out why the sitcom endures.

-I’m iffy with Aaron Sorkin joints, but these photos of his new movie The Trial of the Chicago 7 has me intrigued, mostly because the cast is so stacked: Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Frank Langella, and Jeremy Strong.

Donald Glover is reportedly reprising his role as Lando Calrissian in a future Star Wars series for Disney+.

-I love this article on guys starting a romance book club. I never understood why more dudes don’t read romance; it’s basically a how to guide for what women want.

Romany Malco and Regina Hall star in Tijuana Jackson: Purpose Over Prison.

Jessica Simpson Gets Bare for Glamour

Jessica Simpson’s book promo seems inescapable, but her Glamour digital cover is great.

Brad Pitt‘s slick awards acceptance speeches during this awards season have people talking about one of Hollywood’s worst-kept secrets: awards speech ghostwriting.

Jameela Jamil says that the controversy surrounding her participation in the vogueing reality show forced her to come out. As Ira pointed out, this is a person who has previously publicly prided herself on turning down playing a deaf character because she didn’t want to take that away from a deaf actor. At the end of the day, it wasn’t about her being straight or gay. It was about her being in a show about ballroom culture while having zero connection to ballroom culture, and that hasn’t changed.

Sam Raimi may direct Doctor Strange 2 and Twitter is psyched.

Matthew Perry is the latest Friends star to join Instagram. This is starting to look studio-mandated, no? As if they’re all gearing up to promote something like, say, a reunion.

Margot Robbie is the latest celeb to eat spicy wings on Hot Ones. Despite the spectacle of it all, this is sneakily becoming one of the best interview shows on the circuit.

Eva Longoria is not impressed with the controversy surrounding Oprah‘s book club pick, American Dirt, especially that the author’s tour was cancelled because of supposed death threats — which turned out not to be true. “What made me really upset was when the publisher said, ‘We had to cancel the book tour because of safety concerns,’ which made my community look like we’re crazy people going to cause trouble. We’re not.”

-Every time Chris Hemsworth posts about his exercise routine on Instagram, I want to try bear crawls. And then I spend 0.034 seconds at the gym doing them and nope right out of it.

Billy Porter wore his Oscar gown at his appearance on Sesame Street and I love it.

-This is a very deep dive into film vs digital from the cinematographer on The Last Jedi and Knives Out.

Elle Fanning and Justice Smith star in the All the Bright Places trailer for Netflix. This seems familiar. Did I read this book? I think I read this book.

Chris Rock is a huge Saw fan, so he pitched a sequel to the horror franchise back in May. And already, we have the first trailer.

Kim Kardashian Defends Move Into Law

Kim Kardashian covers Vogue Arabia

Kim Kardashian covers Vogue Arabia, in which she pushes back on the criticism she’s received for pursuing a law degree.  (“There is a misconception that I don’t actually have to study and that I’ve bought my way into getting a law degree – that’s absolutely not true. Being underestimated and over-delivering is my vibe.”)

-If you missed last night’s VMAs, here’s a red carpet recap. And the performance you have to check out is Normani’s Motivation. Twitter LIT UP when she was on. She’s gonna be huge.

-I love that Missy Elliott brought out Alyson Stoner (the little girl from the “Work It” video) to recreate her dance routine last night.

January Jones commenting about fellow Mad Men alum Alison Brie’s boobs at the VMAs is a good time.

Justin Theroux went wakeboarding with his The Leftovers costar Ann Dowd and I’m living for it.

-A Bachelor in Paradise contestant didn’t get the memo that the food at their date was just a prop for show only. He still attempted to choke it down, despite his companion’s repeated warnings. “When we get back to the beach and I tell everyone you ate the date food, they’re gonna give you shit. You’re not supposed to eat the date food! I’m trying to help you.”

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian ate at a Cheesecake Factory two nights in a row and I’ve never related to them more.

-SNL has lost Leslie Jones, which sucks.

-Everyone was making fun of this headline about Eva Longoria directing a Flamin’ Hot Cheetos movie, but the film is actually the story of Richard Montañez, a janitor working for Frito Lay who revitalized the company by inventing the new flavour.

-The owner of Taylor Swift‘s real-life “Cornelia Street” apartment had no idea who she was when he rented it to her. “She walked in, and I’ll never forget this — she said, ‘Oooh, it’s so crafty.’ And in Taylor-speak, that means ‘I like everything.’ She asked if she could rent not just the house but my style as well. So towels and dishes and glassware and furniture and just kind of ‘Take your clothes and go.’ So I did. She was an absolute delight to deal with.”

-In his new Netflix special, Dave Chappelle calls Michael Jackson rape accusers liars, defends Louis C.K. and Kevin Hart, and ridicules trans people. Gross.

Francis Capra (who plays Weevil on Veronica Mars) retweeted this sexist shit and I just can’t.

-On the other end of the spectrum we have Harry Styles, who embraces his female fandom instead of ridiculing it. He says in his new Rolling Stone cover story: “They’re the most honest — especially if you’re talking about teenage girls, but older as well. They have that bullsh-t detector. You want honest people as your audience. We’re so past that dumb outdated narrative of ‘Oh, these people are girls, so they don’t know what they’re talking about.’ They’re the ones who know what they’re talking about. They’re the people who listen obsessively. They f-cking own this sh-t. They’re running it.”

-This fall books preview reminded me that Rainbow Rowell has a sequel to Carry On coming out next month and I cannot wait!

-I am very interested in the new Briarpatch series, mostly because it stars Rosario Dawson and was created by one of my favourite TV critics. The trailer has me hopeful.

-Speaking of shows produced by Sam Esmail, here’s the trailer for Mr Robot’s final season.

-The new trailer for Dickinson, the upcoming Apple+ show in which Hailee Steinfeld plays poet Emily Dickinson, is very confusing. Is she…twerking??
