Cardi B Is Woman of the Year

Cardi-B billboard woman of the year

Cardi B is Billboard’s Woman of the Year — and what a year it was. In the interview she says, “I’m not gonna front — this has been a bad year due to work. You can’t do shows and you gotta wait on deals. But I’m really happy because I have spent so much time with my family. I feel like I haven’t laughed like I have in 2020. My daughter is so funny, and I’m with her every single day. That’s what brings me happiness.”

-Wow wow wow – the news that Warner Bros will stream ALL their 2021 movies on HBO Max on the same day as their theatrical debut is a huge, seismic shift for the movie industry. There’s lots of debate about whether this marks the death toll for movie theatres or if this was just because HBO Max needed Warner Bros’ entire slate to save it (I can’t wait to read tomorrow’s think pieces!) but either way, even after we get a vaccine and life returns to normal, it’s going to be hard to put the toothpaste back in the tube.

-Meanwhile, Canada will still get all those movies as theatrical releases. They’ll eventually come to Crave someday, maybe.

-Fans are convinced Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn are engaged because in her re-recorded version of “Love Story”, the lyrics have changed from “Baby, just say, ‘Yes’” to “Baby, just said, ‘Yes.’”

-God, how much to you wanna bet that George Clooney regrets talking about the Flowbee? He gave a live demonstration on Kimmel.

Chet Hanks tried to defend his controversial use of Jamaican patois in a Clubhouse chat.

-Ok, I’ll give it to the Kardashians. This Facetime prank is pretty great.

Daniel Radcliffe appeared on Hot Ones and in between wing tasting, he talked about why he won’t join social media. “When I was younger, not anymore thanks god, I would like to look up comments about myself on the internet and read s–t like that. That is an insane and bad thing to do. And to me, like Twitter and everything just feels like an extension of that. Unless I want to go just read all nice things about myself, which also feels like another unhealthy thing to do.”

In a new video to promote her skincare line, Jennifer Lopez goes completely makeup free and looks amazing.

Glenn Close doesn’t think Gwyneth Paltrow should have won her Oscar for Shakespeare in Love, which might mean a lot more if Close didn’t say it while promoting the critically lambasted Hillbilly Elegy.

-Superstore will end its run this spring with 15 episodes, rather than a full 22. The final season begins January 14.

Mindy Kaling responded to a comment that her two kids have “very Caucasian” first names, revealing her 2-year-old daughter Katherine’s middle name, Swati, as well as her 3-month-old son Spencer’s, Avu.

-I was worried when I saw that Nora Roberts was trending but it’s just because she clapped back at some ninny who tried to explain to her how publishing works. I want “Stop. You literally don’t know what you’re talking about” on a tshirt.

-The only person in the audience at the Chanel Métiers fashion show was Kristen Stewart.

Aubrey Plaza became a paparazzi target during quarantine because she lives near Brad Pitt.

-I bet the unmasked fan who approached Gloria Estefan and gave her covid now feels like shit.

Jennifer Lopez Gets Naked For Her New Song

Jennifer Lopez showed off the cover art for her latest single, and it’s a pic of her in the buff shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. I didn’t think singles got the cover art treatment, but if I looked like this I guess I’d be looking for any excuse, too.

The Weeknd called the Grammys out for his nomination shut out (and Nicki Minaj backed him up). There’s some speculation that the Grammys wanted him to perform on their show and not the Super Bowl Halftime Show, which airs just a week later, but the Academy CEO insists that’s not the case.

Chris Evans posted a video of himself playing piano while wearing a chunky sweater. Vulture says he’s “adopting the persona of a jock who’s having an emotional crisis in the third act of a high-school movie” but I’m not complaining.

-In a deeply personal NYT op-ed, Meghan Markle revealed she suffered a miscarriage in July. Not only is her op-ed incredibly moving, it helps to break down the stigma surrounding talking about miscarriages. I didn’t realize until I started doing some social media work for a fertility clinic that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. That’s an insane stat, and people rarely talk about it. Besides it being very well-written, I also liked how her essay clearly positions her as a hands-on mom, with all the talk of diaper changes and picking up crayons and socks.

Christina Perri also revealed she and husband have lost their baby girl in a stillbirth.

Prince Charles and Camilla both deactivated the replies on their tweets, and there’s speculation it’s because of the heat they’re getting from their depiction on this season of The Crown. The show truly has given up on engendering any audience sympathy for him in these new episodes.

-Cdn gossip columnist Shinan Govani tweeted about the Jessica Mulroney story in Page Six, and just now tweeted an apology to her “as requested“. Well.

-The NYT’s list of the 25 greatest actors of the 21st century (so far) caused a bit of debate on Twitter. There are certainly some snubs but I like how diverse it is. I especially appreciate the callout for Melissa McCarthy in Spy.

Timothée Chalamet, Jason Bateman and Kristen Wiig are set to host the remaining SNL episodes of the year. Morgan Wallen will also get a second chance at being a musical guest.

-The cast of the 90210 reboot got together to reminisce about their behind-the-scenes dramaAnnaLynne McCord admitted to the rumoured tension with Shenae Grimes Beech: “I wanted to strangle that chick. I’m so grateful that in the last 24 hours of [shooting] 90210, Shenae and I fully repaired our relationship issues. I ended up at her wedding in England!”

-As if his album documentary In Wonder on Netflix wasn’t enough, Shawn Mendes surprise-dropped a second film this week — this one a concert film.

-Meanwhile, Shawn shared his view of his Toronto condo in his Netflix film, and the scene is agonizingly familiar to anyone who lives here.

-I follow a lot of romance writers on Twitter for some reason, and what they’ve been doing to mobilize voters in solidarity with Stacey Abrams has been nothing short of remarkable.

-Speaking of people doing good, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have donated $500,000 to Covenant House in Vancouver and Toronto.

-The trailer for the live-action Clifford the Big Red Dog debuted by Paramount Pictures today and everyone is freaked out by how sick the dog looks.

-The trailer for Life In A Year, starring Cara Delevingne and Jaden Smith, has dropped. These “sick-lit” dramas are never going away, huh?

 

Timothée Chalamet Interviews Zendaya for Elle

Zendaya-elle

-I have extreme sneaker envy over Zendaya’s Elle cover. She’s interviewed by Dune costar Timothée Chalamet so the article itself is as substantial as cotton candy, but the photo spread is excellent.

-I’m trying so hard to get back into The Crown because I love Gillian Anderson, but man, that season premiere felt like it was 47 hours. Emma Corrin is great as Diana though. She covers the new issue of British GQ.

-Relationship shocker: Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis have split after being engaged for more than 7 years.

-The People’s Choice Awards happened last night. The red carpet was more subdued than usual, but Tracee Ellis Ross and Demi Lovato still crushed it.

Jennifer Lopez won the Iconic Award, and Nicole Kidman and Renée Zellweger sent video tributes.

Jason Momoa was spotted shopping at Cosmos Records in Toronto, which is great and all but why the hell is he not wearing a mask while inside a store?!

-Man, Chris Evans is keeping us fed lately on social. He and Olympian gymnast Aly Raisman posted about hosting a play date for their rescue dogs.

Jennifer Garner listed the 10 things she can’t live without and I love that for the most part, they’re all inexpensive, normal people things.

Ryan Reynolds and It’s Always Sunny star Rob McEllhenney have acquired a Welsh soccer club. I see someone’s been watching Succession…

-The CW is doing a Jane Austen anthology series based on her books, which led to a Jezebel headline that I heartily endorse: “The Time Has Come to Let Lizzy Bennet Fuck”

-The Vampire Diaries’ Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev had a very cute exchange about adopting Justin Bieber.

-After months and months of John Oliver lusting after him, Adam Driver appeared on his show to ask “What the f**k are you doing?” He (fake) ranted “This bit? This bit, this thing you’ve been doing that’s either sexual or violent? This strange, strange bit that for some reason you’ve pulled me into? What is it? When you first started doing it, it was easy for me to shrug it off. But then it kept going on, and on, and on, and on… Do you realize, over this past year, what you’ve asked me to do to you? ‘Collapse on your chest.’ ‘Tie your fingers in a square knot.’ ‘Step on your throat.’ ‘Shatter your knees.’ ‘Pull your heart out through your ear.’ What’s wrong with you? You realize we’re strangers, right? I don’t know you. And now, random people on the internet stan us, claiming that you thirsting over me is a mood.” I love them both so much.

David Fincher says he’s developing a miniseries about “cancel culture” and I just let out the longgggggest sigh.

Jack Black did the WAP dance on TikTok, to glowing reviews.

-Netflix’s Dash and Lily is an underrated holiday gem, if you’re looking for a quick binge.

Meryl Streep takes Candice Bergen, Dianne Wiest, and Lucas Hedges on a girls trip in the trailer for HBO Max’s Let Them All Talk.
