Sebastian Stan Suits Up GQ
GQ/STEVEN PAN

-Avengers: Infinity War broke a slew of records at the box office this weekend. I thought it was a disjointed mess with a bunch of false consequences that can’t possibly stick because they make no sense from a business/franchise perspective, but what do I know?

-The one thing that the movie did (or more accurately, the junket) is rekindle my love for Sebastian StanThis GQ profile helps, too.

Tina Fey is the latest celeb to be featured in David Letterman‘s interview series for Netflix, and she gives him some improv tips in this preview.

-Meanwhile, I want Sterling K Brown to have all of the superhero roles. All of ’em.

Seth Rogen explains why he’s kept silent amid BFF James Franco’s sexual misconduct allegations: “The truth is that my perspective on this is the least relevant perspective. I’m friends with these people and I’m a dude. All that combined makes me the last person who should be talking about this.” He’s not wrong.

-Well. About 60 women at NBC, including Rachel Maddow and Mika Brzezinski, are defending Tom Brokaw.

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid were caught kissing, despite their rumoured split.

-Speaking of rekindled romances, Kerry Perry and Orlando Bloom  are a thing again. Yay?

janelle_monae_rolling-stone-pansexualJanelle Monáe‘s quote about her sexuality is getting all the headlines (“Being a queer black woman in America, someone who has been in relationships with both men and women – I consider myself to be a free-ass motherf**ker…but then later I read about pansexuality and was like, ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with too.’ I’m open to learning more about who I am”), but her whole Rolling Stone interview is worth your time.

-Speaking of cover stories, Alden Ehrenreich is on the cover of Esquire, and most of his profile is damage control for the upcoming Solo movie.

-Whoa: the jury in the Bill Cosby felony sexual assault retrial found the 80-year-old comedian guilty on all three counts. He now faces up to ten years for each of the three counts of drugging and raping Toronto’s Andrea Constand in his Philadelphia home in 2004.

Cosby remained quiet during the reading of the verdict, but reportedly lashed out at the prosecutor in expletive-laden tirade during the subsequent discussion about him being a flight risk.

-Meanwhile, celebs celebrated the verdict on Twitter.

-I really, really hope this story about how disgraced CBS anchor Charlie Rose is being slated to star in a show where he’ll interview other high-profile men who have also been toppled by #MeToo scandals is a joke. Or a desperate attempt by his camp at a comeback. As long as it’s nothing that resembles reality.

Kelis alleges abuse at the hands of Nas during their marriage in a new bombshell interview. “I remember so clearly, when the pictures came out with that whole thing that happened with [Rihanna] and Chris Brown, and the only way I can describe it was like Double Dutch. ‘Do I jump in? Do I say it?’ Cause I had bruises all over my body at that time. I remember being in Atlanta, sitting in the kitchen, and I was like, ‘Do I?’ And I wasn’t ready to walk. I just wasn’t. And so I didn’t say it.'”

-The Avengers: Infinity War did one final push on late night last night, singing their own version of “The Brady Bunch” theme song for Fallon, and awkwardly surprising fans and answering Avengers trivia on Kimmel.

-This is cool: Paramount wants a female director for the next Star Trek movie, and S.J. Clarkson (who directed the Jessica Jones pilot) is in talks for it.

-Oh no. SNL’s “Weekend Update” anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che are set to host the Emmys.

-In better hosting news, Kelly Clarkson is going to host the Billboard Awards, so Ellen helped her with some prep.

Priyanka Chopra‘s reaction to David Blaine sewing his mouth shut is hilarious.

-This is a very smart take on what’s been going on with Kanye West.

-Cardi B is being sued by her former manager for $10M.

-This story continues to be NUTS: Smallville actress Allison Mack was arrested this morning. She and Keith Raniere, of the NXIVM cult, were charged with “sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy.”

-This Busy Phillips profile is a wonderful read. She talks about gaining fame through her Instagram Stories, her friendship with Michelle Williams, and the flack she got for posting on the anniversary of Heath Ledger’s death. “I’ve never even really spoken about it, because I never would want to have it be misconstrued in that way, but it was the ten-year anniversary, and…It’s just been a long ten years, you know?”

Jimmy Fallon got choked up while paying tribute to Tina Fey: “Today, I have two daughters and my hope for them is that they grow up to be leaders like you, and that they’ll be as fearless and confident in their strengths as you are.”

Janelle Monáe’s Dirty Computer is dropping with a 50-minute-long sci-fi film, which will debut on MTV and BET on April 26. As someone who has listened to “Pynk” 9,293 time this week, I approve.
