RIP DMX. The Grammy-winning artist was one of the most successful rappers of the late 1990s, with his first five studio albums debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Gabrielle Union‘s tribute to him was incredibly touching. Kerry Washington’s, however, caused a stir for implying he and Prince Philip ended up in the same place (she’s since deleted it).

Prince Harry is expected to fly back to the UK to attend the funeral. I’m sure the British press will still find a way to blame him and Meaghan for something.

George Floyd‘s family’s attorney revealed that George Clooney emailed him with some brutal advice for the trial: “You should tell them if Derek Chauvin feels so confident [that the cause of death was drug use], he should volunteer during his case, to get down on the floor in that courtroom, and let somebody come and put their knee on his neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds and be able to see if he can survive.”

The press release says it’s “an exhilarating and sexy series that will transform a group of men into real-life Magic Mikes. 10 men who have ‘lost their magic’ will come together in a competition series like no other.” Like they need to even sell us on it.

-Anyone else having a hard time making it through The Falcon And The Winter Soldier? There’s some big moments (like the last few minutes of the latest ep) but taken all together the show feels pretty middling.

Cardi B covers XXL and talks about negotiating endorsement deals (“I’m from the ’hood and sh-t. And they might be like, ‘Oh, we could offer her a $2 million advance.’ And the company is gonna make out of you, probably f—ing $50 million, $100 million. And you settle for $2 million because they think that you’re so thirsty for that money that they just gonna give you the $2 million”) and staying on top of her business dealings (“One thing for sure that I’m doing a lot now this year is music and making sure my business is straight. Not just signing things and not just making sure that I get new deals and everything. That my money is getting handled great. That I got good lawyers that’s handling my shit. Because that’s one thing that is really hard. When it comes to these new celebrities, they start learning their business more, four or five years, shit, maybe eight years in”).

-One of Hollywood’s worst kept secrets has been laid bare in a new THR story about how super producer Scott Rudin is reportedly a monster to work for. Among the allegations in a damning new exposé: he once “smashed an Apple computer monitor” on an assistant’s hand, when an employee with Type 1 diabetes told him she had to exercise 30 mins a day he only let her do it from 5:30am-6am (and still expected her to take calls then), and he’s thrown random things at employees, including a baked potato and a glass bowl.

Taylor Swift dropped a new song “From the Vault” — this one is “Mr. Perfectly Fine.” I’m not the hugest Swiftie but I’ve been listening to the Ringer’s podcast breaking down her albums, and them talking about how she experimented with different time signatures and layered vocals on her last two albums have really made me appreciate what a streak she’s on.

-Did every big trailer drop today? Here’s the new trailer for Those Who Wish Me Dead, starring Angelina Jolie, Jon Bernthal, Nicholas Hoult and Tyler Perry. This looks better than the initial images made it look, since it seems less about her being a firefighter and more about her being a badass a la Salt.

Taylor Swift Continues To Be A Content Machine

Emma Caulfield and Clare Kramer are the latest Buffy alums to support Charisma Carpenter‘s statement calling out Joss Whedon‘s on-set abuse. It’s been a day and the male actors who’ve worked with Whedon have remained conspicuously silent. (Some of their reputations may hint at why.)  The only guy who seems to have addressed it so far is Anthony Head, who played Giles. He told a morning show he had no idea and felt like he “let down” his costars: “I have been up most of the night just running through my memories thinking ‘What did I miss?’. This is not a man saying ‘I didn’t see it so it didn’t happen’. I am gutted, I’m seriously gutted because one of my memories, my fondest memory was the fact that it was so empowering.”
