-On Seth Meyers’ show, Kenan Thompson talked about on Kanye West’s SNL rant: “He voiced his opinion very loudly for a long time…We’re all entitled to our own opinion — I don’t know if that’s the moment, necessarily to hold people hostage like that — but hey, you know!”

-This is a good look from The Ringer about how Kanye West fell so far so fast.

Aubrey Plaza hugged the statue of Jeff Goldblum while security reprimanded her and I’ve never related to another human more.

-This is very sweet: Taylor Swift gave an 8-year-old fan with autism $10,000 for a service dog and front row tickets to her show.

Louis C.K. performed at the Comedy Cellar again. Blergh.

-There are rumours that Game of Throne’s Pedro Pascal been cast in the live action Star Wars TV series, which makes a lot of sense.

-A new study finds that more than half of The Last Jedi backlash was amplified by Russian trolls, which also makes a lot of sense.

-Novelist and essayist Zadie Smith and filmmaker Claire Denis tried to collaborate on the script for Denis’s new movie, High Life, but it didn’t go over so well. “We were so opposed on every idea,” said Denis. “There was not a word we could share.” (Judging from the reaction that movie got at TIFF, maybe Smith was smart to bail.)

-There’s no way Drew Barrymore agreed to this interview in Egypt Air’s in-flight magazine. No way.

-I feel like a big trend for returning shows this season is putting their lead character in jail. First we got the Arrow preview, and now here’s the Crazy Ex Girlfriend preview.

Brad Kern, the CBS producer who was the subject of three investigations into allegations of abuse and harassment, has been fired from NCIS: New Orleans and let go of his network deal. His contract was terminated yesterday. (I actually didn’t think this was going to happen. Mo Ryan reported way back in December that he had been the subject of two different CBS HR investigations, and CBS still gave him a new two-year deal a few months later.)

Childish Gambino, Justin Timberlake, and Kanye West will reportedly headline Coachella in 2019 — which makes me not want to go to Coachella.

-There’s a LOT of buzz for Amazon’s new show The Romanoffs, an anthology series from Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner that features Christina Hendricks, Isabelle Huppert, Noah Wyle, John Slattery, Amanda Peet, Diane Lane –– basically everyone.

-Paul Dano’s Wildlife is getting raves on the film fest circuit. I’m intrigued.

Kate McKinnon interviews costar Mila Kunis in the new issue of Cosmo, in which she talks about first reconnecting with Ashton Kutcher over social media, and how  her family sometimes believes tabloid stories about her.

-The idea of Justin Timberlake begging Drake to do a collab tickles me more than it probably should.

-At a backyard party on the Fourth of July, Chance The Rapper got down on one knee and asked his girlfriend, Kirsten Corley, to marry him. I’m gonna sound like my grandma right now, but he probably should have put a shirt on first.

Idris Elba  is in final talks to play the villain in the Fast and Furious spinoff starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham. This is already the best F&F movie ever made! (Somewhere, do you think Vin Diesel is weeping softly?)

-I’m digging season 2 of GLOW but yeah, this one thing is bothers me too (probably because in the first season it never even occurred to me that it could be their endgame).

This tweet compared Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas to New Girl’s Cece and Schmidt and now it’s all I can see.

-The photo of Jay Z wearing a helmet while riding a jet ski has gone viral because…well, have you seen it?

-The Beckhams presented a united front on their 19th anniversary. But no one seems particularly convinced though because we’re all cynical beshes.

Lupita Nyong’o and Kristen Stewart keep inching closer to that Charlie’s Angels reboot that Elizabeth Banks is directing, but nothing’s been confirmed.

-I like that Selena Gomez spent Independence Day with her Wizards of WaverlyPlace costar David Henrie. He seems like a good egg.

Julianna Margulies says she rejected an invite to guest on The Good Fight in season one because she “didn’t think that was fair” to the cast. “I felt like, ‘Get on your own two feet. Do your thing.’ Because if Alicia had come in, in the first season, it would have been [all] about Alicia and The Good Wife. And now it’s their show.” And now TGF has surpassed TGW in every possible way.

-July 4th means Blind Item reveal day on Crazy Days and Nights. I’m side-eyeing most of these, but this one is really nice.

-Rumoured couple Chris Pine and Peaky Blinders star Annabelle Wallis look very couple-y.

Sean Penn and Leonardo DiCaprio being friends makes so much sense to me.

Amy Adams’ HBO show Sharp Objects, which debuts Sunday, continues to get stellar reviews.

T.I. says that he confronted Kanye West about his Trump comments — and their five-hour conversation about politics turned into into a collab.

-You’d think Gillian Anderson would want to stay away from alien-themed pop culture, but here she is in the UFO trailer. I’m not complaining.

Justin Timberlake Does Post-Super Bowl Damage Control

Justin Timberlake‘s Super Bowl performance was not good. The sound mixing was way off, his outfit was widely ridiculed, and his use of Prince (with whom he had a complicated history) did NOT go over well.  In his post-game appearance on The Tonight Show, he leaned on Questlove for validation.

Kylie Jenner didn’t talk at all about her pregnancy (not even to confirm it) and then this weekend she announced she’d given birth on Feb 1 with this insanely well-edited, oddly moving 11-minute video chronicling her pregnancy.

-In a harrowing new interview (which I wish was written by someone other than Maureen Dowd but alas) Uma Thurman broke her silence about the time Harvey Weinstein attacked her. Equally horrific was her details about a car crash on the set of Kill Bill (complete with video footage) and the subsequent attempt to cover it up. Quentin Tarantino does NOT come off well in the story, but Thurman later took to Instagram to praise him, saying he was “deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event, and gave me the footage years later so I could expose it and let it see the light of day…He also did so with full knowledge it could cause him personal harm, and I am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage.”

-Meanwhile, a new statement from Weinstein’s attorney says Thurman’s sexual-assault accusations “are being carefully examined and investigated before deciding whether any legal action against her would be appropriate.” Jesus.

-The Thurman story got all the coverage this weekend, but equally disturbing and important was the story from the Washington Post about nine women accusing veteran talent manager Vincent Cirrincione, who guided the careers of many women of colour, of sexual misconduct. Halle Berry, his most famous client, says she cut ties with him three years ago when she first heard of the allegations, telling the Post “I immediately confronted Vince about it, and he denied it completely. But even with his denial, something didn’t feel right in my spirit, and with the possibility that it could be true, I immediately ended our over-25-year relationship…While Vince never made an inappropriate gesture toward me, nor did I hear about this type of behavior from any woman or man while we worked together, I have always had a no-tolerance policy when it came to such matters.”

-Meanwhile, Cirrincione’s company, whose current clients include Empire’s Jussie Smollett and The Flash’s Candice Patton, was immediately shuttered.

Sarah Silverman announced on Twitter than she and Michael Sheenconsciously uncoupled over Christmas” because “we live in different countries & it got hard.” Too bad; I liked them a lot together.

Taylor Kitsch told Seth Meyers that FNL fans approach him a lot because “they want to get drunk with Tim Riggins.” Fair.

Cardi B denounced pregnancy rumours with my favourite statement ever: “I’m just getting fat. Let me fat in peace.”

-R.I.P. John Mahoney. The actor best known from Frasier and Say Anything has died at 77. (“I’m incarcerated, Lloyd!!” remains one of my favourite line readings ever.)

-Awkward: Xavier Dolans cut his BFF Jessica Chastain out of his new movie.

-My least favourite part of This Is Us is how obsessed they have always been about Jack’s death and last night’s episode didn’t change that, but my god, give Mandy Moore an Emmy for this scene.

Ben Platt, Barbra Streisand, and Gwyneth Paltrow are set to star in Ryan Murphy‘s upcoming Netflix series The Politician.

Kevin Hart says his wife tried to stop him from posting this drunk Super Bowl video on Instagram, but he went ahead and did it anyway.

-Netflix had a Super Bowl shock up its sleeve: a surprise trailer for the next film in the Cloverfield series, followed by the unannounced premiere of the movie on the streaming service right after the game. In retrospect, the surprise drop strategy makes a lot of sense when you see how bad the reviews for it are. It’s at a dismal 16% on Rotten Tomatoes.

-I don’t care about football, but it’s clear that Stranger Things star David Harbour was the real Super Bowl winner.

-The Super Bowl dropped a lot of new movie trailers, including Avengers: Infinity War, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Jennifer Lawrence‘s Red Sparrow, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt‘s A Quiet Place, The Rock’s Skyscraper, and Mission Impossible: Fallout (which was weirdly my favourite).

-The biggest trailer was of course the teaser for Solo: A Star Wars Story (which had people freaking out at our first glimpse of Donald Glover‘s Lando). The full trailer came today, which is more about Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo and Emilia Clarke‘s Qi’Ra. Needs more Lando.
