Pete Davidson’s Triumphant Return

Pete Davidson‘s appearance on SNL this weekend was all kinds of wonderful. I love that he did it with his friend and former SNL writer John Mulaney, who knows a little something about substance abuse and anxiety.

-I can’t stop watching this video of Bryce Dallas Howard crying on command. What kind of witchcraft is this?!

-This is my favourite Keanu Reeves story of the week, but then again it’s only Monday.

-I’m highly skeptical of the Sun’s story about Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron dating, but man that would make for some juicy gossip. Especially since there’s been rumours of friction between Theron and Angelina Jolie.

-Meanwhile, homeowners who bought Make it Right houses in the wake of Katrina are suing Brad Pitt and the foundation for shoddy workmanship, who are in turn suing the architect in charge of the project.

Leslie Jones isn’t wrong to be pissed about the new Ghostbusters announcement. The way that it all went down definitely makes it seem like they’re trying to erase the last one.

-This is nice: Bon Jovi‘s restaurant is giving away free meals to furloughed workers.

Gillian Anderson is going to play Margaret Thatcher on The Crown. Between this and Olivia Colman on board to play Queen Elizabeth II, I might have to break down and watch this thing again.

-It didn’t take me long to stop following Noah Centineo on Instagram because his posts were killing my crush real quick, so I’m not super surprised by his defense of Logan Paul. Still gross, though.

-Here’s the first official image of Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding in Paul Feig‘s romantic comedy Last Christmas and I can’t wait to watch the crap out of this!

This thread about how the world treated Sinead O’Connor in 1992 is so worth your time (and will make you love Kris Kristofferson).

-I watched the Netflix doc on the Fyre festival this weekend, and the fact that Ja Rule is now trying to cast himself as a victim is rich.

-Also, if you watched it and were saddened by how the Bahamians were treated during the festival’s meltdown, consider donating to this GoFundMe for Maryann Rolle, who lost $50k of her personal savings in order to pay her staff when the fest organizers bailed. It’s already raised $140,071 of its $123,000 goal.

Russell Brand is in hot water after giving an interview in which he basically admitted to letting his wife handle most of the child-rearing duties.

-Ugh. While promoting Incredibles 2’s Oscar campaign, Brad Bird defended disgraced Pixar exec John Lasseter. “You’re navigating a world where men have acted a certain way for thousands of years. Way too late, but all of a sudden, they’re expected to change that on a dime and it’s necessary and it’s right. But it’s a little bit a gray area.” (Seems like a good time to revist this article.)

Millie Bobby Brown tries to make a connection in the new Godzilla: King of the Monsters teaser.

Judi Dench is accused of being a spy in the Red Joan trailer.

Meghan Markle Goes Rogue

-As soon as I saw the photos and video of Meghan Markle‘s surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards, I knew Lainey would lose it over the excessive belly-cupping. But were the stomach grabs and protocol-breaking dark nail polish her way of trying to send a message?

Jennifer Aniston said that when she first moved to Los Angeles, she lived in a haunted house with a ghost that hated her roommate. This sounds like a better premise than Friends…

-The Oscars might move ahead with no host — because clearly NO WOMEN EXIST!

-In completely unrelated news, the crowd who attended Amy Poehler‘s Smart Girls anniversary dinner was amazing.

-If the final season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend doesn’t make my top 10 list this year, it’s going to come really, really close. This gag reel is also a delight.

-To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and The Kissing Booth were Netflix’s most-rewatched original movies this year. I only contributed 27% of that.

-The reviews are in for Aquaman, and critics seem to think it’s a bit of an overlong mess, but a really delightful, fun mess. Huh.

-Speaking of DC movies, Chris Messina playing a villain in the upcoming Birds of Prey is good casting.

-I don’t watch The Voice but man, people are pressed about Adam Levine.

-Taylor Swift attended her boyfriend’s movie premiere, but kept it on the DL.

Elisabeth Moss struggles to get over her split from her girlfriend in Brandi Carlile’s new music video.

-I really like this take on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Everyone raves about that show, but I didn’t make it through the first season. It felt like it was leaning into all of the worst things about the Gilmore Girls.

Jameela Jamil is still on the detox tea thing? I mean, ok I guess but this seems like low-hanging fruit.

Nicki Minaj might have a new boyfriend — and her fans aren’t impressed.

-Is there a better late night guest than John Mulaney? I could listen to him tell stories about dragging Pete Davidson to Steely Dan concerts all day…

-Here’s the new trailer for True Detective season 3. Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff are trying to drag me back into this, but I need to stay strong!

 

Tracee Ellis Ross Happy To Be “45, Single and Childless”

Tracee Ellis Ross Says She Is ‘Happily Single’ At 45

-In her InStyle cover story, Tracee Ellis Ross says she cool with her single status. “It’s sort of fascinating to be 45 and single and childless. [I’m] not at home crying about it.” Bless.  Also, she really loves that colour and silhouette, no? She wore something similar to the MET Gala. And the Emmys.

Christina Aguilera talks about that infamous VMAs moment where she and Madonna kissed. “It was weird. And you know why they cut away for it? They cut away to get Justin [Timberlake’s] reaction. It was a ‘Justin’s reaction’ shot.”

Brad Pitt smiled at someone he was sitting near so clearly everyone thinks they’re dating.

-I don’t know why Jon Hamm is doing Canadian commercials, but I very much appreciate the way he says “poutine.”

Nicki Minaj now has merch based on her fight with Cardi B, which is both trashy and genius.

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have finally finalized their divorce. If she waited for him to get healthy, that makes her a solid human being.

Lady Gaga has remained pretty opaque during this press tour (she must have gotten Bradley Cooper‘s memo), but her comments about sexual assault on last night’s Late Show were very articulate and personal.

Laurie Metcalf and Sara Gilbert say they have reached out to Roseanne Barr but didn’t hear back.

Keira Knightley holds nothing back in an essay about giving birth to her daughter. “My vagina split. You came out with your eyes open. Arms up in the air. Screaming.” She continues: “I remember the shit, the vomit, the blood, the stitches.”

-Every time Kate Beckinsale gets cutesy with her 23-year-old boyfriend, I want to fist pump.
