-For the first time in history US Vogue (left) and British Vogue (right) share a cover star: Adele. In her first interview in 5 years, she speaks about body image, romance, divorce, single parenthood and her “self-redemption” album.

-In his new Netflix special, Dave Chappelle tries to justify button-pushing jokes about gay people, trans people, and feminists — and critics say he often fails. He defends DaBaby and JK Rowling, and says he’s on “Team Terf.” Gross.

-Comedian Hollis Black‘s comments on the special have been trending, while Dear White People showrunner Jaclyn Moore said of Netflix: “I will not work with them as long as they continue to put out and profit from blatantly and dangerously transphobic content.”

-Among Britney Spears‘ many posts over the last few days was this one, which she captioned, “I suggest if you have a friend that’s been in a house that feels really small for four months … no car … no phone … no door for privacy and they have to work around 10 hours a day 7 days a week and give tons of blood weekly with never a day off … I strongly suggest you go pick up your friend and get them the hell outta there !!!!! If you’re like my family who says things like “sorry, you’re in a conservatorship” … probably thinking you’re different so they can fuck with you !!!! Thankfully I found an amazing attorney Mathew Rosengart who has helped change my life 🌹!!!!”

-In another, she also commented about her seemingly bizarre posts, saying “I feel like I have been a caged animal for half of my life …that’s exactly why I choose to direct myself … do my makeup myself … produce myself … dress myself … make music myself … feed myself … and shoot videos and pics myself”

-There were a lot of delightful appearances on late night last night. Brett Goldstein was on Seth Meyers, Daniel Craig was on Jimmy Kimmel, and the cast of Squid Game was on Jimmy Fallon.

-Speaking of Squid Game, I loved this analysis of the marble episode (the best ep, IMO).

Gabrielle Union says she once auditioned for The Matrix but she failed because she tried to channel Janet Jackson — and the real Janet showed up.

-The Crown’s Claire Foy is set to play Sheryl Sandberg in a new TV series about Facebook.

Drew Barrymore interviewed Dakota Johnson and praised her for her awkward Ellen Degeneres interview.

-I would like the actress Rebecca from Ted Lasso to tweet inspirational messages to me like this, please.

-Here’s the trailer for a new HBO doc that looks into the circumstances surrounded Brittany Murphy’s death.

-Here’s the trailer for Gwyneth Paltrow‘s new Netflix show Sex, Love & Goop.

Nina Dobrev is catfished in the new Netflix movie Love Hard, and I’ll pretty much watch any romcom, but this trailer makes me worried that she’ll end up falling for her catfisher instead of the hottie from Never Have I Ever. Let’s all just rewatch Netflix’s excellent romcom The Half of It instead and call it a day.

Gillian Anderson, Cynthia Erivo and More Talk Pay Equity

Gillian Anderson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Cynthia Erivo, Elizabeth Olsen, Mj Rodriquez and Sarah Paulson

Gillian Anderson, Anya Taylor-Joy, Cynthia Erivo, Elizabeth Olsen, Mj Rodriquez and Sarah Paulson gathered via Zoom for THR’s TV actress roundtable. They discussed pay, with Anderson talking about being offered a tenth of what David Duchovny was offered for the reboot. “That was the point where I was like, “Fuck this. I’m actually going to talk about this [publicly].” Erivo also discussed salary (“I’m a Black woman. That has a lot to do with how you’re paid, how you’re hired, if you’re hired, the way you’re hired — it affects everything”) and how she still has to ask for Black makeup artists on set. “It isn’t about vanity, it’s about making sure that whoever I’m playing is represented in the right way because they understand how to work with my skin tone and my hair.”

-It’s been a not-great week for Matthew Perry. First there was chatter about his appearance on the reunion, and now comes news that he split from fiancée Molly Hurwitz.

-In her new, self-directed video for “Lost Cause,” Billie Eilish hosts a slumber party for a group of girlfriends.

-Now that Taylor Swift has been cast in a David O. Russell movie, all the terrible stories about him are resurfacing. I can’t believe this guy still gets jobs, let alone any actor wants to work with him. Even George Clooney wanted to hurt him.

-Kim’s Convenience star Simu Liu wrote an explosive Facebook post about how how frustrated he had become with the show’s producers and his fellow cast members. I’m sure all of his complaints are valid, but this is a surprising flex when you’re about to lead a Marvel movie.

-Thor Love and Thunder is done filming, and the photo that they posted makes me want to write Chris Hemsworth a note excusing him from the gym for the next year.

Ellie Kemper was linked to a white supremacist group after a 22-year-old photo of her surfaced on Twitter but the truth was more complicated — she was crowned Queen of Love and Beauty at an event that had connections to the klan in its early years, but has since become a debutante ball. Still problematic, but less so.

-Never Have I Ever star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan will play Lizzie Bennett in a contemporary rom-com for Netflix that’s “in the spirit of Easy A and 10 Things I Hate About You.” Yes, I’ll take all the Pride and Prejudice adaptations.

This interview with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga is hilarious. She asks the interviewer over and over if he believes in “spiritual warfare.”

-I work in social media and I don’t believe for a second that Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Goop team posted that photo of Ben Affleck without her knowledge.

Sophia Bush says she was fetishized on One Tree Hill. “My girlfriends from One Tree Hill and I talk about that all the time. We’re like, girls don’t talk to each other the way we had to talk to each other on that show, and also don’t behave the way we had to behave on that show. Come on! That was, like, some gross older man’s fantasy. And it was icky.”

-Every new trailer for Apple TV’s Physical, starring Rose Byrne, gets me more and more excited.

Gael García Bernal fights against time in the trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s Old.

Prince William and Kate Middleton Mark 10 Years

Prince William and Kate Middleton are celebrating their 10-year anniversary and they released new official portraits and a sweet family video. It’s clearly a PR play, but it’s very cute so I’ll take it.

-In less happy royal family news, despite being near each other for Prince Philip‘s funeral, Prince Charles reportedly continued to freeze Harry out and they “barely communicated.”

-Gucci’s new ad campaign involves celebs appearing on a fake talk show, hosted by James Corden. My favourite is Dakota Johnson because she looks like she’s about 2 seconds from pulling her “Actually no, that’s not the truth, Ellen” schtick.

John Mayer is nearing a deal to host his own late-night talk show on Paramount Plus.

Billie Eilish gets up close and personal with a giant snake in her new music video.

Jason Segel and Alexis Mixter have split after eight years together.

Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric took us on a trip down gossip nostalgia lane when they appeared on a podcast and talked about that time Kiefer was supposed to marry Julia Roberts, but she left him for Jason just before the wedding. They were able to repair their friendship and now say they’re besties. Said Jason: “They’ve both subsequently been married since. A couple of times. They’re both very happy in their lives, and what lasted after all of that was me and Kiefer. Thirty-five-year buddies.”

-I don’t hate the podcast trend of TV stars rewatching their old shows. Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke just launched their podcast on The OC, and Scott Patterson is going to recap the Gilmore Girls on a new pod.

-I can’t stop looking at Camila Cabello’s outfit in these photos. I thought it was skirt but that first pic makes me think it’s pants. What?

-Congrats to comedian Hannah Gadsby, who announced on social media yesterday that she got married in January.

-I can’t imagine anyone wanting to go on a cruise post-pandemic. Not even if Gwyneth Paltrow is “curating the programming.”

Willow Smith’s new song is a bop. Meanwhile, on a new episode of Red Table Talk, she talks about her decision to practice polyamory.

Sarah Paulson was spotted wearing a fat suit to play Linda Tripp, and nobody’s happy about it.

-Doctor Who star and filmmaker Noel Clarke has been accused by 20 women of serial sexual predation.

Joe Rogan is backpedaling on his vaccine comments. “I’m not a doctor, I’m a fucking moron, and I’m a cage-fighting commentator who’s a dirty stand-up comedian… I’m not a respected source of information — even for me.”

-The Jeopardy contestant who made a white supremacy hand gesture now insists he didn’t.

-Five suspects have been arrested in connection with stealing Lady Gaga‘s French bulldogs after shooting her dog walker — including a woman who returned the dogs to authorities.​

-The Dexter reboot dropped its first teaser trailer.

-Here’s the first trailer for Sweettooth, Netflix’s post-apocalyptic fairytale produced by Robert Downey Jr.
