zendaya instyle september 2020

Zendaya covers the September issue of InStyle, styled by Law Roach and wearing Pyer Moss, Hanifa, Romeo Hunte and Christopher John Rogers. Roach said he only used clothing, shoes and jewels from black designers for the shoot.

In the story, Zendaya talks to Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors about her activism. “I’m an actress, but I’m also just a person who has a heart and wants to do the right thing.”

-Zendaya’s rumoured boyfriend Jacob Elordi is interviewed in Variety, and talked about not yet seeing Kissing Booth 2, and the attention surrounding Deep Water costars Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas (“I feel so bad for them. Let them walk their bloody dog”).

-E! News is reporting that Jennifer Garner has split from John Miller after almost 2 years together. In (possibly related?) other news, she was spotted hanging out with Alias costar Bradley Cooper and his daughter on a beach in Malibu. (This is a much better rumour than the one about Bradley dating Anna Wintour, which is somehow circulating again.)

-Meanwhile, Bradley was spotted grabbing dinner with Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio.

-In a clip for the new season of Selling Sunset, Chrishell Stause reveals This Is Us star Justin Hartley told her via text that he had filed for divorce. “I found out because he texted me that we were filed. Forty-five minutes later, the world knew … I talked to him right after ‘cause I thought that must be a joke, but that was kind of the end of the communication.”

Jason Momoa had wife Lisa Bonet‘s old Mustang restored. I can’t tell if this is just an elaborate ad for Ford or not, but it’s sweet enough that I can’t seem to bring myself to care.

George and Amal Clooney have donated $100k to Lebanese charities helping provide aid in Beirut.

-I’m very bummed that High Fidelity starring Zoe Kravitz has been canceled after just one season.

-Three of Bon Appétit’s Test Kitchen stars of color are departing the video channel after failed contract negotiations. Priya Krishna, Rick Martinez, and Sohla El-Waylly will no longer be in Test Kitchen videos, they announced on Instagram. How do you have a very public reckoning with how your treat your non-white employees, and STILL try to lowball them? Krishna mentioned in her statement: “Some of my colleagues in the test kitchen have been publicly supportive but privately complicit, even helping to interview BIPOC video candidates they know will be underpaid.”

-This is a very good point about all of the celebrities who are posting support for Ellen Degeneres: their posts sound like they came from a digital media kit. The fact that so many of them reference exact amounts of what she’s contributed to charity is suspicious.

-The release date for Bill & Ted 3 has been moved again — this time up a week. Makes sense, as the following week is suddenly looking busy with Tenet and Mulan duking it out in what is sure to be a very closely watched battle pitting theatres vs streaming.

-A teaser is out for A24’s Zola, a thriller born from a Twitter thread about a Hooters waitress who meets a girl who asks if she wants to make some extra money stripping, and then they end up on a roadtrip to Florida that involves prostitution, pimps, a bipolar boyfriend, kidnapping, and murder. It is a master class in storytelling.

-Also, A24 correcting People’s headline about the teaser is priceless.

Justin Bieber Still Thinks He Could Beat Up Tom Cruise

-Over the summer, Justin Bieber called out Tom Cruise on Twitter and challenged him to a fight. On Carpool Karaoke, James Corden asked him about it. “I don’t know. I was just being stupid, to be honest…but then people were like, ‘Yeah I want to see this happen.’ Then I was like, ‘You know what? That could actually be funny.'” Fair enough — but then Bieber reiterated that he thinks he would beat Cruise. “There’s absolutely no way [I’d lose]. He’s not the guy you see in movies…that’s a character…I’m dangerous, plus my agility is insane. I’m insane. I don’t think you understand the mind control that I have.”

Taylor Swift Puts Scooter Braun on Blast

Taylor Swift accepted the Billboard Woman of the Decade award last night and she used her speech to blast Scooter Braun. Among the highlights: “Scooter never contacted me or my team to discuss it prior to the sale or even when it was announced. I’m fairly certain he knew exactly how I would feel about it, though. And let me just say that the definition of toxic male privilege in our industry is people saying, ‘But he’s always been nice to me’ when I’m raising valid concerns about artists and their rights to own their music. And, of course, he’s nice to people in this room; you have something he needs…Private equity is what enabled this man to think, according to his own social media posts, that he could ‘buy me.’ Well, I’m obviously not going willingly.”

-All the yes to the NYT’s take on the garbage fire that has been this season of Survivor: “In a workplace — a morally and legally responsible one, anyway — just imagine if you responded to documented misconduct by telling your employess: Well, you deal with it if you don’t like it. Imagine telling them the only way for them to get rid of their inappropriate coworder was through a public vote, at risk of personal loss and possibly being voted out themselves? Then imagine putting the whole thing on broadcast TV as a lesson to America in what happens when you speak up.”

-Meanwhile, CBS announced the reunion show won’t be airing live as per usual. Instead they will be taping it that afternoon due to “security concerns.” Oh sure. I’m certain that it has nothing to do with the fact that if any contestant criticized CBS or Jeff Probst on the handling of all this on the live show, they wouldn’t be able to edit it out.

-On Ellen’s show, Jason Momoa surprised a couple with an all-expenses-paid trip around the world for their “dream honeymoon” because they haven’t been able to go anywhere after an accident left the husband paralyzed.

I remember when I showed Noah cuts or drafts of Little Women. He’s my favourite filmmaker and my favourite writer. It means everything to me that he thinks it’s good.”
