Kanye West Goes to Washington

Kanye West and Trump are both so outrageous that it’s hard to be surprised by anything they do anymore. But their meeting today at the White House was bonkers. What even is this video? Can we all agree that Kanye is just all about empty provocation these days and probably doesn’t even believe what he’s saying? I mean, should we even care about what anyone whose iPhone password is just a serious of zeroes really thinks?

-Now Kid Rock is at the White House. This day just keeps getting better and better…

-Wait, does People’s new Lady Gaga cover story not actually include a new interview with Lady Gaga?

Amandla Stenberg says Jennifer Lawrence taught her how to “pee in the woods” when they were shooting The Hunger Games. Is that…something you have to be taught?

Ryan Adams is butthurt by Mandy Moore‘s comments about their marriage.

-I watched the second episode of A Million Little things and damn, that show is bad. As this thread points out, it’s gruesome and gross.

-I was working from home today so I caught all of Dakota Johnson‘s segment on Ellen. I can’t tell if there’s just not a lot of there there, or if she just has an incredibly dry sense of humour but…oof. The only part that was halfway amusing was when Ellen made fun of her for not inviting her to her birthday party, and she responded by making fun of Ellen for asking about the pregnancy rumours.

-I’m already won over by the premise of Rebel Wilson‘s new movie: she’s trapped in a romcom and wooed by Chris Hemsworth.

-About this photo of Emily Bett Rickards: 1) I love her character’s new look. Witness protection, I’m guessing? 2) I love even more that she appears to have no idea when her show actually airs. Arrow doesn’t come back until Monday.

Julia Roberts tries to help Lucas Hedges escape his drug-dealing past in the trailer for Ben Is Back. The film festival buzz about this one is that the first half is an emotional family journey, and then it takes a weird turn.

Bradley Cooper, The Reluctant Superstar

Taffy Brodesser-Akner once again proves she is one of the best celebrity feature writers working today with her NYT profile on Bradley Cooper. He is CLEARLY not into it, and she explains to him why she needs him to open up, and then the article offers some genuine insight into not just his creative process, but also hers.

-Meanwhile, the song from the A Star Is Born trailer (you know, THE song with the crazy goosebump-inducing, Gaga-wailing chorus), dropped today.

Busy Philipps, Sarah Hyland and Cara Delevingne shared their devastating #WhyIDidntReport stories today.

-This first look at Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers is the soothing balm the world needed today.

-Speaking of things we could all use after today’s news cycle, The Good Place is back tonight! NBC released the first four eps to critics and the reviews are pretty forking glowing. (Here’s a refresher if you don’t remember how last season ended.)

-The week of surprise baby news continues! Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan reportedly welcomed their first child in August.

Robert Pattinson and Mia Goth are currently promoting a movie together. Their ex-significant others (FKA twigs and Shia LaBeouf) are now dating. This isn’t awkward at all.

George Clooney looks really different in this photo. I don’t like it.

-Single Parents (which I really liked) and A Million Little Things (which I really didn’t) premiered to so-so ratings.

Kanye West is reportedly preparing to drop his third(!) full-length album of the year this weekend.

Jameela Jamil explained her issues with the body positivity movement which is great — except she may have lifted her quotes from someone she was DMing with. (She’s since credited them.)

-In a new interview, Leah Remini talks about her ongoing fight against Scientology and adds, “I keep wondering – why haven’t Katie Holmes or Nicole Kidman spoken out? I assume they were forced to sign prohibitive documents…Trust me, Katie’s not allowed to have a meal with me, and we used to be close friends. She could lose custody of Suri. It’s quite sick, really.”

-Here’s the Dark Phoenix trailer starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, and Sophie Turner. This feels like the type of movie that might be OK if you just consider it divorced from the rest of the X-Men films.

 

Emma Stone is Interviewed By Jennifer Lawrence for Elle

emma-stone-jennifer-lawrence-elle

-In her new Elle cover story, Emma Stone talks to BFF Jennifer Lawrence about social media (“I think it wouldn’t be a positive thing for me. If people can handle that sort of output and input in the social media sphere, power to them”), and panic attacks (“My mom always says that I was born with my nerves outside of my body. But I’m lucky for the anxiety, because it also makes me high-energy”). I’m glad this interview format is starting to get some flack (as Lainey says “is this becoming a trend? A sh-tty trend?”) Think of the best celebrity profiles you’ve read in the last couple of months, whether it was Taffy Brodesser-Akner on Gwyneth Paltrow, David Marchese on Quincy JonesE Alex Jung on Sandra Oh or Stephen Rodrick on Johnny Depp. There’s a level of distance and probing (be it rooted in admiration or skepticism) that you’re just not going to get from a BFF. As the Fug girls says, “having your friend interview you makes for a flabby and anemic profile at best.”

-In better celeb profiles, this GQ one on John Cho is great.  “You’re the only Asian not in ‘Crazy Rich Asians.’ Did you miss the meeting?”

-Crazy Rich Asians is set to pocket $5.3 million in tonight’s screenings alone. Fingers crossed it makes back its $30M budget in the first 5 days!

-Meanwhile, here’s an explainer on the CRA actors you may not know much about (yet).

Vulture says its “witty and sweet” and calls it “summer’s best rom com”, Indiewire says it’s infused with “charm and empathy” and Pajiba calls it “fun and winsome…a total treat and a perfect pick for a night of Netflix and Girls Night in.”

Priyanka Chopra‘s engagement ring from Nick Jonas (that will never not be a weird thing to type) is on full display in a new Insta snap.

Taylor Swift spoke at her concert about the anniversary of her sexual assault Trial verdict: “I just wanted to say I’m sorry to anyone who ever wasn’t believed because I don’t know what turn my life would have taken if somebody didn’t believe me when I said something had happened to me.”

-Outside of his court hearing, Liev Schrieber told reporters he did NOT assault a photographer. “I never touched him, I never touched his body with my body. I was pissed, but that was it. I have nothing else to say.”

Dane Cook hosted a  Q and A on Instagram and opened up about his relationship with Kelsi Taylor, a 19-year-old singer who is 26 years younger than him. Have some bleach handy so you can scrub your brain clean after reading about it.

Chris Pratt is still talking about James Gunn being fired: “We all love James …but we also really love playing the Guardians of the Galaxy”. You know what’s nuts? Gunn seemed to instantly realize his mistake and was like “yup, i screwed up and I’m outtie.” It’s the stars of GoG that won’t let it go.

-In a new interview, Glenn Close commented on Scarlett Johansson‘s trans casting controversy: “People who are producing and directing properties like that need to go out of their way to get trans actors jobs. But they also should have the opportunity to cast the best person.”

-Wondering when your fave TV show returns this fall? I got ya.

-I don’t think anyone was really excited for Colin Jost and Michael Che to host the Emmys, but their latest interview really cemented it. Good job, guys!

-In a wide-ranging interview, Jim Carrey revealed he doesn’t have access to his own Twitter account and has at least three people (“just pals”) sign off on every post: “When you’re in my position, it’s a really smart thing to have a buffer.” This system needs to be adopted by every celebrity, STAT!

-This illustrated ode to The Americans’ wigs is fire.

-A week after splitting from Cheryl Cole, Liam Payne was photographed looking cozy with a model.

Bella Thorne‘s first foray into makeup is not going very smoothly. She’s shilling ridiculously expensive, tiny eyeshadow palettes that may or may not rip off a black-owned beauty brand.

-I think I enjoy reading about HBO’s Sharp Objects more than I enjoy actually watching it. This article on its editing is great, as is this weekly updated piece on all the hidden words in the show.
