John Boyega Has No Time for Racists

John Boyega tweeted “I really f*cking hate racists” and people got all huffy in his replies and he was NOT having it. His responses were amazing. Then he took it up a notch on Instagram Live: “I’ll say it again. F*ck you racist white people. I said what I said. If you don’t f*cking like it, go suck a dick…If you’re a fan of me and you support my work and you’re racist and you’re arguing with what I was saying, f*ck off, you f*cking dickheads.” I love him with my whole heart.

-This is a pretty great breakdown of that Tatler cover story on Kate Middleton. Meanwhile, Kensington Palace has hit back at Tatler’s article, saying “This story contains a swathe of inaccuracies and false misrepresentations which were not put to Kensington Palace prior to publication.” Which is surprising, seeing as many believe the article was sanctioned by Kate.

Billie Eilish has shared a short film about body shaming titled Not My Responsibility.

Josh Gad brought Tom Hanks, Daryl Hannah and Ron Howard back together for a Splash reunion. Howard recalled one time John Candy was late to the set and offered up the most amazing excuse. “He said, ‘Look, I’m drunk!’ Here’s what happened … I’m at the bar and Jack Nicholson’s at the bar. Jack Nicholson knew my name, Ron. He starts buying me drinks, I said, ‘I gotta go shoot’ and he said, ‘You’ll be alright kid, don’t worry about it.’ I never went to bed, Ron, I never went to bed!”

Paul Mescal’s Charitable Chain

Paul Mescal Stylist cover

-I really hope the buzz surrounding Normal People (which drops in Canada this week on CBC Gem) is still loud enough when productions resume so that Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones translate their critically acclaimed performances into huge new roles. They’re both so, so good in it and deserve to be big stars. Mescal’s on the new cover of Stylist, where he talks about auctioning off his character’s infamous chain to support a mental health and suicide charity called Pieta House.

Lana Del Rey can’t stop digging a hole. This weekend, she posted yet another defense of her original post, and compared herself to yet another POC. “The difference is, when I get on the pole, people call me a whore, but when [FKA] Twigs gets on the pole, it’s art.” At what point does someone in her life just change her Insta password?

-Speaking of singers who’ve screwed up, after videos surfaced of her laughing at racist comments in a video chatroom, Doja Cat wrote an Instagram post on Sunday addressing the allegations.

-I’m really liking how creative magazines are getting when it comes to photo shoots with their socially distanced subjects. Robert Pattinson took his own pics for GQ, as did Naomi Campbell for Essence, a Vanity Fair photographer shot Janelle Monae through a Zoom conference call, and now Vanity Fair used a drone to shoot Catherine O’Hara lounging in her yard.

Jennifer Lawrence joined Amy Schumer for the latest episode of her quarantine cooking show, and said she considers white wine “mainly for sluts.” ‘Kay.

Lana Del Rey, what are you talking about?!? “There has to be a place in feminism for women who look and act like me” is not a sentence a white girl has any business writing. And to throw Doja Cat, Ariana, Camila, Cardi B, Kehlani, Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé under the bus while she’s at it? Good lord.

John Krasinski‘s viral series Some Good News has been sold to CBS All Access following a massive bidding war— which doesn’t really feel like good news. It was a nice thing he was doing during quarantine but selling it feels…kinda gross? He’s not even going to be the host so what exactly did he sell, the concept of feel-good segments?

-Chef Kristin O’Connor was spotted at Bradley Cooper‘s place, sparking romance rumours.

Jaime King‘s filed for divorce and asked for a temporary restraining order against her husband.

-It looks like there’s a face in the background of Jennifer Lopez’s photo and now I can’t unsee it.
