Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Dazzling Comeback

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attended their first public engagement together today since their royal exit announcement and they were glowing. They attended the Endeavour Fund Awards, which honours military personnel and veterans, and were witness to a surprise proposal.

Katy Perry announced her pregnancy via the new music video for her song “Never Worn White,” which ends with her pulling a Beyonce and cradling her belly.

-Little Brown published Ronan Farrow’s Catch and Kill book and today its staff walked out to protest the fact that parent company Hachette is publishing Woody Allen’s book.

-Kids In The Hall are coming back! A revival is set for Amazon with all five stars returning.

-Oof, what is going on with the CW and how they’re parting ways with their leading men? First Stephen Amell talked about feeling disrespected while filming his big death scene in the final season of Arrow, and now Brandon Routh is opening up about his exit from Legends of Tomorrow. “I filmed my last episodes in the Arrowverse and as Ray Palmer, and that was a very traumatic event for me. It was not something I was expecting, it was shocking, it was not well-handled.” He also mentioned that on his final day of filming he didn’t get to act with any of his costars: “I was in the Atom suit, doing greenscreen with the crew. It was kind of a weird last day.”

-Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness showed off his impressive figure skating moves on Insta.

Taylor Swift is donating $1M to the Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund following damage caused by the recent tornadoes in Tennessee.

This review of the new seasons of Better things points out one of my favourite things about the show: Sam’s ability to instantly make friends with strangers. I think I fell in love with the show in season two when she hopped in a golf cart at a resort, and then it cut to the next scene of her getting out of the golf cart while giving the driver a hug and congratulating him on his new grandchild.

-Now the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker novelization is confirming that Rey‘s father is a failed Palpatine clone. Oh my god just STOP.

-After being in Bellevue Hospital for weeks, Harvey Weinstein is finally going to Rikers.

David Spade got the Just Shoot Me cast back together to shoot a video in which he proposes a reboot.

-After controversies surrounding American Dirt and My Dark Vanessa, Oprah’s book club team decided it would not be moving forward with the novel.

-I don’t think blue light glasses actually work (I tried them and they gave me a headache) but Drew Barrymore’s line of them is very cute.

-The first full trailer for the horror flick Antebellum offers more Janelle Monáe.

Taylor Swift’s Holiday Home Movies

Taylor Swift grew up on a Christmas tree farm so it makes sense that she wrote a holiday song called “Christmas Tree Farm.” The video, released just days after she wrote the tune, features home movies of her as a kid and is undeniably adorable.

-Queer Eye’ star Jonathan Van Ness is the first non-female to grace a Cosmo cover since Boy George.

Jennifer Garner showed off her giant Christmas tree. “I’m not sure this is the tree we picked out. It’s a little aggressive.” (Also, she says ‘foyer’ weird.)

-Variety went deep with Billy Eilish and brother Finneas O’Connell for their new cover story.

-I friggin’ love that Robbie Amell did interviews for his new movie at Pai because it’s his fave Toronto restaurant. He’s not wrong. (Great cameo by Chef Nuit, too.)

James Corden and Max Greenfield made an aspiring screenwriter’s dreams come true in a Starbucks.

-My god, just shut down every version of Big Brother immediately. This show is a trainwreck in every country.

-In honour of Marriage Story hitting Netflix today, Vulture did a feature on how Adam Driver looks ridiculously tall in that movie. (“What we are gathered here today to discuss is how much fun it is to see Adam Driver, big boy, squeeze himself into small things.”)

-Wait, now Amy Sedaris is in The Mandalorian? I’m gonna have to watch this sucker, aren’t I?

-This is a very good, very deep dive into the reporting style of the National Enquirer.

-All the brands who replied to this Netflix tweet nailed it. (Scroll through the photos for responses.)

Tom Holland may have saved the Spider-Man movies by drunkenly calling Disney head Bob Iger at a pub in tears. “I’m like three pints in, I haven’t eaten much…I was really emotional because I felt like it was all coming to an end.”

Keri Russell and Oscar Isaac are the real dream duo on this promo tour.

-Here’s a lovely moment of Jodie Whittaker getting a silver disc for her cover of Coldplay’s Yellow.

Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne star in the trailer for The Aeronauts, a film that got lukewarm reviews on the festival circuit.

 

Rihanna Gets Colourful on Harper’s Bazaar Cover

Rihanna Harper’s Bazaar

Rihanna looks amazing in Chanel, Dior and Givenchy Haute Couture in her new Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot. I cannot stop looking at these photos.

-Speaking of amazing photo shoots, Keiynan Lonsdale in Vogue took my breath away.

-Time’s 100 most influential people issue is here, which features Taylor Swift (with a tribute written by Shawn Mendes), Sandra Oh (with a tribute written by Shonda Rhimes), Dwayne Johnson (with a tribute written by Gal Gadot), Regina King (with a tribute written by Voila Davis), Brie Larson (with a tribute written by Tessa Thompson), Lady Gaga (with a tribute written by Celine Dion), Emilia Clarke (with a tribute written by Emma Thompson) and more.

Lori Loughlin‘s camp took her sob story to People. Because of course.

Beyonce shocked everyone by dropping a surprise live album to coincide with her new Netflix documentary, ensuring that no one in the entire world did any work today.

-Look, I’m fully aware that this entire article was likely ghost-written by her PR team, but I’m still here for all the Jennifer Garner comeback pieces.

Madonna‘s new single “Medellin” is here. It took a few listens but now I dig it.

Britney Spears‘ mother is not doing much to reassure us that her daughter is fine. She posted about how “the battle is not over” and then liked posts about Britney being put in a mental care facility against her will.  What’s happening??

-Ugh, when asked about Rey’s parents, J.J. Abrams said Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will show us “there’s more to the story than you’ve seen.” This is why I’m concerned with Abrams regaining control. He adores his mystery boxes, but the reason that The Last Jedi was so powerful is because Rian Johnson introduced the notion that anyone could be a Jedi — even if you’re parents are nobody. It opened up the Force (kind of like the Buffy finale opened up slayerhood). Why destroy that, especially in the final chapter of a trilogy that established it?

-Huzzah! Emma Thompson and Paul Rudd will host SNL this season.

Louis Tomlinson broke his silence following his sister’s sudden death to thank fans for their support.

-I really liked actor John Bradley’s take on Sam Tarly’s scenes in the Game of Thrones premiere. Sam is not only one of the purest characters, he’s often also the audience surrogate. So if Sam doesn’t like Dany, that doesn’t bode well for her.

-Meanwhile, the Gay of Thrones recaps by Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness continue to be the most entertaining thing about the show.

-I love The Cut editors’ review of Adam Driver’s new Broadway play based on his hotness, which includes lines like “it’s a really immense, thigh-forward experience” and “I was so flustered by his quads that at one point I spilled all of the contents of my purse on the floor.”

-Dead to Me, Netflix’s new show starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, is getting good reviews.

-Oof. The final trailer for X Men: Dark Phoenix does nothing to convince me that this film won’t be a mess.
