Is Beyonce Pregnant Or Just Messing With Us?

Beyonce‘s belly bump watch just kicked into high gear thanks to this video from her new tour, in which she appears to cup her stomach. I dunno; she just had twins a year ago and she posed with a Corona just last week.

-In news that should surprise no one, Johnny Depp is being sued for allegedly punching a location manager on the City of Lies set. The lawsuit claims the actor screamed obscenities at the crew member and punched him twice in the ribs, then offered him $100,000 to punch back.

Robin Wright broke her silence about costar Kevin Spacey, making it clear she didn’t have a friendship with him beyond the House of Cards set. In her Today Show interview, she says “Kevin and I knew each other between action and cut, and in between setups, where we would giggle. I didn’t really …I didn’t know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is.”

-Also, costar Patricia Clarkson credits her for saving the show after the scandal. “Robin led all of this charge so that people would save their livelihoods, because when the show goes away, some people don’t get paid. I think it’s going to be a stunning, stunning new season and I’m thankful for it.”

-Is 24 the new age for celebrities to get engaged? And cripes, is that another pear-shaped diamond?!

Gal Gadot stopped by a children’s hospital in Virginia dressed like Wonder Woman and the photos are lovely.

-I really like Dwayne Johnson‘s response to those tough Baywatch reviews: “It’s not that critics didn’t like it. They … hated it. But to clarify, it’s not audience first, critics never. Critics love movies, and we’re all in this business together.”

-Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams wants a new trial to lower his $50K monthly child support bill.

-I don’t love the olive green Ralph Lauren dress that Meghan Markle wore to Prince Louis‘ christening today, but Princess Charlotte was always going to steal the show anyway.

Harvey Weinstein appeared in court and  pled not guilty to new sexual assault charges, and won’t face home confinement. Also, he’s apparently working as a paralegal on his own case.

-The new chief of Warner laid out his vision for HBO — and he basically wants to turn it into Netflix. This is so weird and misguided. HBO has an established and respected brand and tone; Netflix’s original content strategy just seems to be throwing things at the wall and seeing what sticks without worrying about bloat or quality.

Drake‘s Scorpion is now the first album to reach 1 billion streams in a week. I’m happy for him; I just wish it was a better album.

-Also, Drake‘s new freestyle “Behind Barz” seems to be about Kanye West.

-I’m both impressed and not at all surprised that Lin-Manuel Miranda deals with mean people by being unfailingly cheerful until they feel so bad they end up apologizing.

Stan Lee has dropped his $1 billion lawsuit against his former company.

-Lawrence is nowhere to be seen and Issa looks like she’s still living with Daniel in the new Insecure promo.

-The ladies of Litchfield try to adjust to life in maximum security in the season 6 trailer for Orange Is The New Black.

-Gross. Jerry O’Connell  is hosting a show called Real Men Watch Bravo this fall, because god forbid we don’t coddle masculine fragility. Straight white dudes exhaust me.

Sacha Baron Cohen released a short preview of his new Showtime show Who Is America, which he says he’s been undercover secretly filming it for a year. In the clip, he gets Dick Cheney to autograph his “waterboarding kit.”

Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy are currently shooting the IT sequel in Toronto, and her IG stories make it seem like they’re having a great time. They dined at Kasa Moto on Saturday (so close to my house!) and then she got him to demonstrate proper hand washing technique.

Emma Stone, Olivia Colman and Rachel Weisz star in the first trailer for The Favourite. (I love that they’re using the British spelling.) It’s from the director of The Lobster, a movie I still haven’t quite wrapped my head around.

Johnny Depp Profile Goes Viral – For All The Wrong Reasons

Johnny Depp‘s shady lawyer arranged for a profile in Rolling Stone, and whatever sympathy they were trying to garner with this article — it totally backfired. (Variety just called it a “PR liability.”) Written by Stephen Rodrick and titled ‘The Trouble With Johnny Depp’, it does not paint a favourable picture of the fading star. You really should read the whole thing because it’s batcrap crazy, but the most eyebrow-raising parts are when he argues that his financial troubles were actually *under* reported (“It’s insulting to say that I spent $30,000 on wine. Because it was far more…By the way, it was not $3 million to shoot Hunter [S. Thompson] into the f***ing sky. It was $5 million”), Rodrick’s view of how the actor considers his legal woes (“Depp seems oblivious to any personal complicity in his current predicament. [Lawyer] Waldman seems to have convinced Depp that they are freedom fighters taking on the Hollywood machine rather than scavengers squabbling over the scraps of a fortune squandered”) and the article’s closing salvo (“‘Thanks for coming,’ says Depp. ‘This could be your Pulitzer.’ For the next 15 minutes, Depp tries to figure out how to open the gates to his mansion fortress. He clicks buttons and pushes the fence, but nothing budges. He is a lost boy who won’t find his way home before dark. I finally tell him I can shimmy over the fence. I clamber over and jump down. Through the bars we say good night.”)

Michael Schur says his favorite joke from this season of The Good Place is a Pirates Of The Caribbean diss. It is pretty perfect.

Pete Davidson officially confirmed his engagement to Ariana Grande on Jimmy Fallon’s show last night:  “Some people come up to me and say, Yo man, you give me hope. I didn’t know I was that ugly…I’m a lucky motherf***er.”

-I love that a bunch of TV writers rooms across all types of different networks have banded together to support an initiative to help families separated at the US border.

Demi Lovato dropped a surprise new single called Sober, in which she reveals that after six years of sobriety, she apparently relapsed.

-While Brad Pitt‘s camp is planting stories about how he’s being cheated out of custody rights, Angelina Jolie  is visiting Mosul a year after its liberation from ISIS, and talking about the world’s lack of action.

-This GQ first person essay by Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Stephanie Beatriz is really worth your time.  She talks about how she’s getting married to a man, but how that shouldn’t make her seem any less bi.

-Bless Zoey Deutch for not holding back her criticism when asked  on Watch What Happens Live what it was like to kiss James Franco.

-It’s good to see that Rian Johnson has a sense of humor about this kind of fandom bs.

Justin Theroux posed for the cover of Men’s Health and kept his shirt on so what was even the point?

-Speaking of covers, Janet Jackson looks amazing on the new issue of Essence. In the interview, she talks about going through an “intense” bout of depression in her 30s.

Seth Rogen is justifiably excited about the possibility of sharing a song credit with Beyonce on the upcoming Lion King soundtrack.

-MTV is rebooting Daria, Made, Aeon Flux and The Real World — and hopes to sell them to other networks/streaming services — as it launches MTV Studios. The studio push is an effort across all Viacom brands, which is why Nickelodeon just sold an animated kids show to Netflix.

-Wait, Ozark is actually getting a season 2?  That surprises me.

-This is an excellent look at Queer Eye’s latest iteration.

Jim Carrey sings a sad song for Michel Gondry in the Kidding teaser.

-Netflix is really out here bringing back the romcom, huh? They just released the trailer for To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. It looks super cute and I devoured the book it was based on so I’m here for it.

Johnny Depp Looks Unwell In Fan Photos

Johnny Depp‘s fans (wait, he still has those?) are concerned for his health after a series of photos of him surfaced on social media. A source from his camp says there’s “no reason to be concerned.”

Nick Jonas is dating Quantico’s Priyanka Chopra? That’s…unexpected.

Pete Davidson *just* started dating Ariana Grande and already he got two tattoos dedicated to her: the Dangerous Woman bunny ears, and her initials. Yeah, this’ll turn out swell.

Woody Allen says he should be the #MeToo “poster boy”. “I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses and not a single one…have ever ever suggested any kind of impropriety at all.”  I couldn’t possibly nope this harder.

Janet Jackson  called police on Saturday to check on the welfare of her 17-month-old-old son, Eissa, who was with the singer’s estranged husband, Wissam Al Mana. According to Janet’s brother Randy, the child’s nanny was “terrified by [Al Mana’s] behavior and locked herself in a bathroom, so she could contact Janet.”

Sara Gilbert talked about Rosanne’s cancellation on The Talk. “I am sad for the people who lost their jobs in the process. However, I do stand behind the decision that ABC made.”

-Joshua Jackson has a new girlfriend and it’s not me. I wonder if my boss will let me take a personal day to process this news?

-Paramount has dropped that Heathers reboot from its schedule. Although it’s being shopped around, a show about violence at a high school is probably never going to see the light of day.

-Orange Is the New Black’s Laura Prepon married Ben Foster this weekend.

Tom Cruise shared an insane video detailing an air jump stunt from the new Mission Impossible. He became the first actor to complete a Halo jump.

-This interview with Lee Pace in which he talks about coming out is worth your time.

-My Twitter feed went crazy this weekend after photos surfaced that apparently show Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson together. In other news, I need to follow different people.

-I kind of love that the Big Little Liars cast got together to go bowling and watch Shailene Woodley‘s new film. I wonder if Nicole Kidman has ever bowled before, or if Meryl Streep had to show her how?

-One of my goals this summer is to finish the last season of HBO’s Insecure because I think that show is a goddamn delight and I want to watch it all, but life got in the way. The teaser for season 3 is only re-confirming that for me.

John Mayer talked to Andy Cohen about his dating woes and came to the slow realization that all of Cohen’s famous friends probably have Mayer blacklisted because of his history with women: “You know Jennifer Lawrence and she just doesn’t wanna have anything to do with me.”

-Once again, the THR supporting acting class photo is fascinating. There’s lots of worthy inclusions (The Good Place’s D’arcy Carden, The Handmaid’s Tale’s Yvonne Strahovski, Better Things’ Celia Imrie, Barry’s Anthony Carrigan, Insecure’s Yvonne Orji, Atlanta’s Lakeith Stanfield, The Americans’ Holly Taylor, This Is Us’ Susan Kelechi Watson), but a couple of them are total huhs?

-When you invite Gwen Stefani to your wedding and the DJ starts playing “Hollaback Girl,” you damn well expect her to dance.

-I love this article about all of the Met Gala gowns in Ocean’s 8.

-Speaking of fashion and pop culture, I also love this piece on how Carrie Bradshaw’s tutu and clingy top ensemble perfectly encapsulated the central conflict of Sex and the City: Can you be both fairy princess heroine AND a modern sexpot?

January Jones might have just pulled into the lead for the worst outfit of 2018.

-Ok, so this makes me think that Renee actually was a spy on The Americans.

-This isn’t good: Solo had a massive second weekend drop despite no real competition. Also, Star Wars in general is developing a China problem. It will have trouble getting to $20M, and even bombs like Ghost in the Shell and Passengers did better there.

Chris Hemsworth is already hyping the next Infinity War movie and I just can’t.  This is why I’m looking forward to Ant Man 2, with its nice, self-contained story and Paul Rudd‘s ageless mug.

-I tend to shy away from horror, but the Suspiria trailer (from the Call My By Your Name director and starring Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton) is pretty damn great.

-It would have been the best trailer of the day (week? month?) if the Widows trailer didn’t drop an hour after it. From 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen and Gone Girl’s Gillian Flynn, it tells the story of four women who must settle a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. Check out this cast: Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Carrie Coon, Jon Bernthal and more. And as if that wasn’t enough to convince me, Viola Davis’ line reading of “They don’t think we have the BALLS to pull this off!” sealed the deal.
