Taylor Swift, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez and Michelle Obama all grace People magazine’s People of The Year issue. Swift talks about learning to deflect rude questions (“The more women are able to voice their discomfort in social situations, the more it becomes the social norm that people who ask the questions at parties like ‘When are you going to start a family?’ to someone as soon as they turn 25 are a little bit rude. It’s good that we’re allowed to say, ‘Hey, just so you know, we’re more than incubators'”), Aniston says she remains open to love (“Even when it’s scary, even when it hurts. It’s always going to be worth it”), Lopez talks about wanting more kids (“I don’t know that it’s in God’s plan but I would like to try. I’m so open to it!”), and Obama recalls getting “a little emotional” when dropping off Sasha at college (“We were there, just like most parents, helping her unpack and make her dorm room feel like home”).

-Meanwhile, Taylor Swift wrote a Christmas song over the weekend — and it’ll be released tonight. “I know this is pretty wild but I’ve just written a Christmas song.”

Emma Stone is engaged to SNL writer Dave McCary, who she’s been dating for over two years. I dig her pearl engagement ring.

-It’s very weird that Justin Timberlake broke his silence and apologized for being spotted getting flirty with his costar nearly two weeks after the photos first surfaced. Everyone had pretty much forgotten about it before he dragged it back into the spotlight. It’s also weird that he doesn’t apologize to his costar, who social media deemed a homewrecker. He does, however, manage to squeeze in a plug for their new movie, so I guess there’s that?

Jason Derulo is still talking about the fact that Instagram took down his dick pic — and wants us all to know that he was only “semi-aroused…an arousal looks different. It’s a different vibe. It’s a different beast. It leans more to the front, you know what I mean?” I can’t believe this story won’t die.

-The trailer for the new season of Legends of Tomorrow features a Mister Rogers spoof. God, I love those weirdos.

Harry Styles showed off the vinyl set for his sophomore solo album Fine Line, and the liner notes feature a completely nude photo of the singer. So I guess we’re all buying record players, huh?

Tim Allen was on The View last week and complained about political correctness. “I grew up on Richard Pryor; you can’t even go back and talk about the book he wrote. You know, what I got to do sometimes sometimes is explain – which I hate – in big arenas, that this is a thought police thing and I do not like it. But when I use these words, this is my intent behind those words. So as long as you know my intent… I still get people who say, ‘Just don’t say it.'” Listen to those people, Buzz Lightyear.

-Is anyone having a hotter streak than Florence Pugh right now? The only person I can think of that comes close is Lakeith Stanfield.

-A disguised Alanis Morissette and Jimmy Fallon took to the New York City subway to busk. People seemed to catch on pretty quickly it was them.

-This is a very lovely joint interview with Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale. They talk about costarring together (“It starts out as a very pragmatic thing. You have the kids, the kids are getting bigger, and you don’t want to spend the time apart”), and how they’re currently living in Trinity-Bellwoods (which Cannavale calls the Brooklyn of Toronto).

Penn Badgley has some strong thoughts about Los Angeles in the YOU season two teaser.

-The second trailer for Mulan has landed.

Julia Garner stars in the trailer for the Weinstein-based thriller The Assistant, playing a composite character based on public records, documents, and original interviews.

Adam Driver Goes Dark for Rolling Stone

Adam Driver is on the new cover of Rolling Stone, and yes, this is an acceptable way to start my week.

-The American Music Awards were last night. The red carpet was underwhelming, the shade was surprisingly subtle, and the most creative performance came from Halsey, of all people.  My personal favourite moment was when the camera cut to the audience during Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello‘s performance, and you could see Jenna Dewan clearly mouth “she’s always so extra.”  (She’s since denied it.)

Justin Timberlake’s camp is fighting back at rumours that he cheated on Jessica Biel with co-star Alisha Wainwright, with a source saying their like brother and sister. Oh sure, I often hold hands with my brother when I’m not stroking his knee.

-This Kim Kardashian profile is worth reading, if only for the part where Kris Jenner is gifted the bag Kim wanted at her Chanel fashion shoot: “I remember texting my sisters and being like, “Guys, mom is stealing my shiiiine. This is my first fashion shoot! So then the shoot’s over, and [Karl] comes out with something behind his back. And I’m like: “THE BAAAAAG. IT’S HEEEERRE. OH MY GOD.” I’m thinking: I will cherish this forever, and I’m pregnant, so one day I’ll give this bag to my daughter. Then he comes up and he’s like, “Kim, this was the best shoot. Thank you so much. But Kris, here is a bag for you,” and he gives the fucking bag to my mom. And it was a LEGO clutch. They were like ten grand, and you could never get one. And this was all Swarovski crystal with hand stones that was just a sample that never made it to production. So I go into the bathroom and start crying. I was like, Oh my God, she fully stole my life. She stole my whole day today! This was my biggest moment ever in fashion, with Carine, Riccardo, and Karl!”

-The Little Women reviews are really positive, with Variety saying “In terms of sheer logistics, Little Women marks a huge step forward for [Greta] Gerwig, who shows an aptitude for future studio projects without sacrificing her distinctive directorial voice.”

-Kaia Gerber and Pete Davidson are still dating. And he’s still too old for her.

-The new Walking Dead spin-off is called World Beyond, and AMC someone convinced Julia Ormond to be part of it.

-This is terrible: K-pop singer Goo Ha-ra was found dead at her home over the weekend.

-This thread from a music writer who claims Amanda Palmer is obsessed with her is downright terrifying.

Jason Derulo broke the internet this weekend with this photo.  If he’s trying to redeem his rep after that terrible Cats trailer…it might be working.

-This is No Longer Us: Justin Hartley filed for divorce from his wife after two years of marriage.

-A new clip has been released for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

 

 

Lindsay Lohan Got Punched In The Face

-On Saturday night, Lindsay Lohan livestreamed a fight she had with a homeless family, yelling that they were trafficking children. It ended with her getting punched in the face.

Noah Centineo has been cast in Elizabeth BanksCharlie’s Angels reboot starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska. This feels like a great career move on his part.

Jake Gyllenhaal wrote about buddy Ryan Reynolds in Variety: “After years of waiting and struggling to fit his unfortunate, pear-shaped physique into the skinny jeans of a conventional romantic lead, Ryan made his own luck with Deadpool.”

-Some believe think Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are expecting. Or maybe his dad is just really bad at captions.

Demi Lovato’s sister says the singer is “doing really well,” adding “She’s working really hard on her sobriety and we’re all so incredibly proud of her. It’s been crazy for our family. It’s been a lot.”

-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.

-I love when casts from long-departed shows still hang out. Shiri Appleby and the Life Unexpected crew went camping.

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. But the news that each episode is over 80 mins has definitely dampened my excitement.

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