-What’s up with all the gossip about Kanye West with makeup influencers? First we had outlandish rumours surrounding Jeffree Star, and now TikTok makeup guru Cole Carrigan claimed West’s bodyguard instructed him to meet the rapper at a W Hotel late at night — but then he retracted it. That’s one way to get publicity, I guess.

We get glimpses of some of their most anticipated offerings, including Amy Adams‘ The Woman In The Window, Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer‘s superhero comedy Thunder Force, and Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Don’t Look Up.

-Marvel also seems to be in good shape, despite the current climate. Kevin Feige just made a lot of announcements about what’s on their slate, including that Deadpool 3 will remain R rated despite now being a Disney property.

Jodie Turner-Smith, Anjelica Huston and Florence Welch for Gucci’s “Bloom”

Gucci’s new ad campaign features Anjelica Huston, Jodie Turner-Smith and Florence Welch. And it’s soundtracked by a Mazzy Star song! I immediately want to buy whatever perfume they’re selling.

Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix welcomed their first child together — a boy they named River in honor of Phoenix’s brother, the famous actor who died in 1993. I have to go cry forever.

Eddie Redmayne (who once problematically played a trans woman) tries to have it both ways in a new interview: both decrying the hatred trans people get but jumping to J.K. Rowling’s defense.  “Though he disagreed with Rowling’s comments on the issue, he was alarmed by the ‘vitriol’ hurled at her on social media, which he termed ‘absolutely disgusting’, and which prompted him to write her a private note.”  I mean, if she didn’t want any vitriol directed her way, she could always stop baiting the entire internet?

James Cameron says Avatar 2 is “100% done” filming and Avatar 3 is “95% complete” because they’ve been shooting in New Zealand. “We’re able to operate. We’re able to shoot and have a more or less normal life here. We were very fortunate, so I don’t see any roadblocks to us getting the picture finished, getting both pictures finished.” Sure, but do we believe him?

-The World’s A Little Blurry, the new documentary on Billie Eilish, is set to hit theaters and Apple TV Plus early next year.

-Julie and the Phantoms actor Jeremy Shada and his wife are selling t-shirts based on fan art and it all seems quite shady. There are whole think pieces to be written on fandoms who produce creative works and how their free labour is used.

-13 Reasons Why star Anne Winters really, really wants to play Madonna in the new biopic and doesn’t care who knows. This seems so thirsty to me but I guess you gotta do what you gotta do these days.

In British VogueJodie Turner-Smith talks about how her labour lasted four(!) days, and why she decided to give birth at home. “We had already decided on a home birth, because of concerns about negative birth outcomes for Black women in America — according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the risk of pregnancy-related deaths is more than three times greater for Black women than for white women, pointing, it seems to me, to systemic racism.”  She also shared a photo husband Joshua Jackson took of her on day 3.

-This supercut of all the times Ellen Degeneres mocked Sofia Vergara’s accent is pretty damning.

Katy Perry defended the tweet she sent in support of Ellen. “I started that tweet off not undermining anyone else’s experience. I wanted to only speak from my own experience. I have over 100 million people that follow me on Twitter, so not everyone is going to agree with me. And I’m not here to make everyone agree with me.”
