Paul McCartney Plays Fan JukeBox on Carpool Karaoke

Paul McCartney‘s episode of Carpool Karaoke is predictably great, mostly because it’s got as much fan interaction as singing.

-It looks like Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet have reunited. A month after their reported split, they were photographed kissing.

-Welp. This is not Madonna‘s best move ever.

Kim Kardashian responded to her braided hair backlash by saying “I’m not tone deaf.” Her defense of Trump earlier this week would seem to suggest otherwise.

-Well, now I finally understand why Ariana Grande is dating Pete Davidson.

-NBC finally cancelled Timeless (though it may get a 2-hour wrap up). The odds were never great, but I don’t know why NBC strung along its fans so long.

-In other TV news, the Roseanne-less Roseanne spinoff is officially a go at ABC. The Conners, starring Laurie Metcalf, John Goodman and Sara Gilbert, will follow the family “after a sudden turn of events” forces them to face daily life “in a way they never have before.”

-Yikes. ABC yanked Monday’s episode of The Proposal after a contestant was accused of setting up a sexual assault.

Terry Crews tweeting about Toronto’s big yogurt spill made me laugh.

-This is a really fascinating take on how diversity in film criticism matters, and why the actors out there talking about it aren’t helping matters much.

Christine Baranski is not sure why Michael Sheen named his penis after her, but she’s cool with it.

Liam Neeson is a very considerate theatre attendee.

Busy Philipps talks about the harassment she’s faced and how she dealt with it: “If you wanted to be a woman and you wanted to work you had a choice to be easygoing about it or not. I wanted to work, that was always my goal. If that meant laughing off a joke at my expense, so be it.”

Gwyneth Paltrow is getting married in the Hamptons because of course she is.

Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie are getting married this weekend and their GoT costars are arriving.

-“I try really, really hard [to be a good wife]. I try hardest to be the best mother,” says Victoria Beckham.

Jonathan Friedland is out as Netflix PR’s chief after using the n-word in a meeting. You’d think the head of PR would get why that’s not a thing you can do.

-Wait, is Drake dropping TWO new albums next week?

-Luke Cage season two drops today, and the critical consensus seems to be that it’s 13 episodes that should have been 4. Netflix bloat is becoming a serious issue, especially since so many TV creators are fleeing broadcast for them. They really care less about quality than keeping eyeballs on their site — and that sucks.

-Apparently Sicario 2 is a really tough hang after the border crisis.

-According to Netflix, Mudbound is a huge hit. Yay!!

Ben Foster tries to adjust to civilization after living off the grid in the Leave No Trace trailer.

-Welp. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt reached a temporary summer custody agreement after a judge said she was in danger of losing primary custody of the kids unless she improved their relationship with their dad.

Ariana Grande wore a huge diamond ring to Wango Tango on June 2, suggesting her engagement to Pete Davidson happened even earlier than everyone thought.

Gwyneth Paltrow just gave the most GOOPy response when asked about planning her wedding: “I’m very busy so I’m actually not that involved in it. I have so much going on and I’m sort of outsourcing that.”

John Boyega has had enough of bad fans creating crazy conspiracy theories about why Kelly Marie Tran deleted her social media. First he replied to people, then he tweeted “You’re not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude. Even if you paid for a ticket!” Marry me.

Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Facebook’s talkshow Red Table Talk continues to be an exercise in oversharing. Willow revealed her introduction to sex was when she accidentally walked in on Will and Jada.

-According to Deadline, Matt Reeves wants to reboot Batman as a standalone franchise and replace Ben Affleck.

-When we left the theatre on Friday after seeing Ocean’s 8 I turned to my friends and said “so Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock‘s characters were totally gay for each other, right?” and everyone agreed. And it’s not just us who thought so! Even though I wish the subtext was more actual text, I love that everyone’s writing about their chemistry, like here, here and here.

Anthony Bourdain‘s Parts Unknown was scheduled to come off Netflix US on June 16, but they just announced it will remain.

-I tweeted a link to her twitter thread about it yesterday, but Mo Ryan compiled her thoughts on how TV has treated actresses over 40 this year into an excellent, stats-filled article for THR. I still can’t believe Mary McDonnell’s lead character was killed off Major Crimes just before the series finale and they took her name off the show’s credits in the final episodes — and she wasn’t warned that would happen ahead of time.

-The cast and creators of American Vandal talking about how they filmed nana’s party is pretty great.

-Speaking of TV look backs, Jesse Plemons and Cristin Milioti talk about their Black Mirror episode “USS Callister,” in which he plays an incel and she’s the feminist who takes him down.

-Are you guys watching Dietland? I’m really, really digging what Julianna Margulies is doing.

-I don’t watch Suits so I don’t get it, but everyone one my Twitter TL was loving how shady this post apparently is.

-Many people have noticed that the Diplo-produced lead single from the Deadpool 2 soundtrack, “Welcome to the Party,” sounds a lot like a Kanye West song. Turns out, West thinks so too, tweeting “bro, I would have cleared my music.”

Mike Schur settled some debate about what really happened in The Good Place’s season two finale. I was so wrong.

-Also, my friend pointed out that The Good Place’s official Twitter account is only following 8 people — and that includes Rihanna and Anna Kendrick. What could that mean!??

-CBS is still going all in with their All Access subscription service. Kevin Williamson is re-teaming with The Vampire Diaries’ Paul Wesley for a new series.

-This is so inside baseball, but today’s AT&T-Time Warner mega-merger approval clears the way for Comcast to unveil a rival bid for Fox assets, which means the Fox/Disney merger may not be a sure thing after all.

Stan Lee‘s business manager was arrested on suspicion of filing a false police report.

Domhnall Gleeson and Ruth Wilson get moody in The Little Stranger trailer.

Keanu Reeves plays an American diamond trader in the Siberia trailer. Unfortunately this does not appear to be a rom-com in which he drinks his way through a wedding weekend with Winona Ryder, so I have very little interest…

Meghan Markle’s Dad No Longer Walking Her Down the Aisle

-After it came out that he reportedly staged photos with paps, Meghan Markle’s dad is no longer attending the royal wedding. Is it just me, or does her messed up family make her more relatable?

-Meanwhile, George and Amal Clooney reportedly nabbed an invite.

-Do I have to rethink my whole stance on Benedict Cumberbatch? In a new interview, he says actors should boycott projects that do not pay woman the same amount as their male co-stars. “Look at your quotas. Ask what women are being paid, and say: ‘If she’s not paid the same as the men, I’m not doing it.'”

This is a great take on Anna Wintour‘s recent editor’s letter in Vogue, in which she insist Georgina Chapman had no knowledge of husband Harvey Weinstein‘s behaviour.

-I really like Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons’ baby name. Huh.

-Led by Cate Blanchett, 82 women climbed the steps of the Palais des Festivals at Cannes to call for gender equality in the film industry.

Cardi B deleted her Instagram account following a spat with Azealia Banks.

Chris Hemsworth‘s daughter came up to him and said she wanted a penis like her brothers and he had the best possible response.

Harrison Ford surprised Alden Ehrenreich during his interview with ET in the most Harrison Ford-ish way. “Get out of my chair.”

-As New Girl winds down this week, Zooey Deschanel reveals that T.J. Miller almost played Schmidt. Thank god that didn’t happen.

Busy Phillips supporting her Dawson’s Creek pal Joshua Jackson on Broadway makes me smile.

Pink let a fan sing at her Vancouver concert and it was great.

-This Is Us star Justin Hartley says a female fan sexually harassed him — and then got angry when he didn’t want to pose for a selfie.

-Not gonna lie: Mandy Moore crying about filming *that* scene in last season’s This Is Us kinda got to me.

-For Mother’s Day, Gwyneth Paltrow shared a nude photo of herself just before she gave birth to Apple in 2004.

-On the latest episode of Jada Pinkett-Smith‘s Facebook show, her daughter Willow shocked her by revealing that she started cutting to deal with the post-“Whip My Hair” fame.

-Oh no. Ex-NCIS actress Pauley Perrette says he endured “multiple physical assaults” on the set.

-I had no idea when I was watching last week’s Atlanta that it was already the season finale. What a nearly perfect second season. I still don’t know what to think about that ending, tho.

Ryan Reynolds sang ‘Tomorrow’ from Annie dressed as unicorn on a Korean TV show. This promo tour is wild, y’all.

-Most of the TV cancellations and renewals have been announced (though NBC still hasn’t pulled the trigger on Timeless, despite Kelly Clarkson and Leslie Jones caping for it). Agents of Shield was renewed, Gotham is coming back for a final 13 episodes (which will take them to the 100-episode mark needed for syndication), Lethal Weapon will return with Seann William Scott replacing Clayne Crawford, and CBS dropped Kevin Can Wait and Scorpion. Perhaps most surprising were the seemingly slam-dunk pilots that weren’t picked up, including Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba‘s Bad Boys spinoff,  Hannah Simone‘s Greatest American Hero reboot, and Katie Holmes‘ FBI drama.

-This is a good explainer on why Fox was particularly brutal with the axe this season (TL;DR: NFL, a desire for multicam sitcoms, lack of show ownership, and the Disney deal.)

-Fox also announced they have no more plans for The X Files. Good on Gillian Anderson for hitting up Twitter and refusing to shoulder the blame for the show not going forward.

-This is a great interview with Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s showrunner about the roller coaster of emotions he experienced in the 13 hours between Fox cancelling it and NBC picking it up.

-I seemed to be the only person on Twitter this weekend who did not watch The Kissing Booth on Netflix, which meant I didn’t get to partake in the freakout when it was revealed the main stars are dating IRL.

-The first trailer for Spike Lee‘s highly-anticipated BlacKkKlansman has landed, starring John David Washington (Denzel’s son) and Adam Driver.
