Kanye West’s Sunday Service the Hottest Ticket in Hollywood

-I kinda want to go to Kanye West‘s Sunday church service.

-It’s probably not a great sign when even soft celebrity outlets like E! News are doing investigative reports on Prince William and Prince Harry‘s deteriorating relationship.

Ariana Grande has updated her Pete Davidson-inspired “always” tattoo.

-The first poster for Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood starring Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio has been released, and it’s rul bad. Why are they standing so far apart that one of Pitt’s shoulders doesn’t even fit in the frame? Why is the photoshop so bad that it looks like someone just pasted his face on another person’s body? How does this happen in 2019?

John Stamos pretended (I hope?) to get a giant Nick Jonas tattoo. I guess that’s one way to take the spotlight off Aunt Becky.

Dolly Parton wrote “I Will Always Love You” and “Jolene” on the same day? She must have been dealing with some STUFF.

Reese Witherspoon is having fun with false reports about her and Jennifer Garner being pregnant.

Kat Von D says she is not a Nazi or an anti-vaxxer in an 11-minute Youtube video.

-Following a damning article which claimed Warner Bros studio chief Kevin Tsujihara promised auditions for an actress he was engaged in a sexual relationship with, Tsujihara is exiting his role.

-This list of reasons why no one will die in Avengers: Endgame (not even Tony or Steve) makes a lot sense.

-Speaking of good Marvel theories, this thread on the use of orange vs. purple during Gamora‘s scenes is masterful.

Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell are the cutest lil jellybeans ever.

Dean Cain thought it would be a good idea to drag Eggboy. It wasn’t.

Diane Kruger showed off her perfect abs with an IG post — 4 months after giving birth. She says she doesn’t have a trainer. Still, I’d love to know how many hours a day she spent in the gym to look like this.

-I haven’t watched Shrill yet because it’s on Hulu which is hard to get here, but everyone on Twitter who’s seen it is raving about this pool party scene in particular. I really like this review.

Lana Condor Talks Pressure, Eating Disorders in Elle Canada

Lana Condor Elle

-In her new Elle Canada cover story, TATBILB’s Lana Candor talks about the pressures of being famous and having to look a certain way: “You’re kind of the first person I’ve talked to about this, but I know what it’s like to have an eating disorder and body dysmorphia — and also what it’s like to be a friend to someone who has that. I think it’s time to give people comfort. You have to eat. You have to stop thinking that a certain body shape is ideal, because it’s not.”

-The review embargo lifted for Captain Marvel this morning, and since then it’s fluctuated between 85%-91% on Rotten Tomatoes. Suck it, haters!

-I absolutely love the pants Gemma Chan wore to the Captain Marvel premiere — but I absolutely believe that she’s the only person who could pull them off. I also really liked Brie Larson’s look.

-Did Halle Berry pull a Ben Affleck with a full back tat?

Kanye West is making a legal bid to “obtain his freedom” from publishers and record companies and it’s easy to see why. There’s a portion of his EMI deal that contractually forbids him from retiring.

-This collection of stories about how kind and awesome Luke Perry was wrecked me.

-The trailer for the final season of Game of Thrones is here and it’s really dark. (As in, it’s literally too dark to see much. Is it just me?)

-Catastrophe starts airing on CBC tonight. God, I love this show.

This video of Meghan Markle meeting a 92-year-old fan is so, so lovely.

-The director of Hereditary is back with a new film, Midsommar, that I will never see because I’m a giant wimp, but the idea of a horror movie that takes place entirely in the sunshine is genius.

Ethan Hawke makes being a hostage look like fun in the trailer for Stockholm.

Saoirse Ronan’s New Cover Causes a Stir

-I actually love Saoirse Ronan‘s new cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK (and the inside photo spread is to die for), but I get why people don’t love it. The “spirit of Great Britain” line doesn’t really work for when you’re featuring an Irish actress.

-I dig this Aya Cash interview about moving on from You’re The Worst, her friendship with costar Chris Geere (“Chrissy and I are total opposites in every sense. He’s got all this light, positive energy. Compared to him I’m a f*cking ditch. He likes John Mayer. Oh my God, he loves One Direction. I listen to Perfume Genius, and he always says ‘why do you listen to this sad shit?'”), and her attempts at spon-con (“I knew if you have a certain amount of [Instagram] followers you could get a bed, and I contacted them, you probably know which company I’m talking about, and they were like, No, now it’s 600,000 followers that you need for the bed, and I had like 50-thousand something. I was like, ‘F*ck!'”)

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid broke up again. For now.

Scarlett Johansson says it’s “useless” to fight back against the deepfake porn that uses her face, which is probably true but deeply depressing.

Diddy hired his girlfriend a personal trainer, and then reportedly broke up with her due to suspicious that they were hooking up. Maybe this is just karma for implying that your longtime girlfriend needs to get in better shape?

-The CW is moving forward with a Batwoman stand-alone series starring Ruby Rose which kind of surprises me because after she was introduced in this year’s crossover, the buzz about her character seemed to die out. If anything, everyone seemed to be talking about how Tyler Hoechlin deserves his own Superman show.

-Luther’s new season has begun airing in the UK and this one clip makes me want to see it NOW.

-It’s funny; everyone’s talking about how the newly announced Coachella lineup is the weakest one yet, but it’s the first time I’ve seriously considered going back in years. Yeah, the main draws aren’t really headliner caliber (except Ariana Grande) but the mid-level acts are great (Janelle Monáe, Christine and the Queens, Kid Cudi, CHVRCHES, the 1975, Weezer, etc.). Also, the Idris Elba DJ set would be hilarious.

-Meanwhile, Kanye West‘s camp says that he was negotiating to be a Coachella headliner but it fell through over disagreements about the stage design.

-Black Mirror: Bandersnatch star Will Poulter was driven off of Twitter because people are terrible.

-Margot Robbie and Michael B Jordan share notes about acting while “basically naked” in a new interview.

-Speaking of actor on actor interviews, I really liked this one with John Krasinski and Rosamund Pike.

-The Notebook is becoming a Broadway musical.

-2018 felt like a decent year in terms of well-reviewed movies by women filmmakers (Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Destroyer, Private Life, You Were Never Really Here, The Rider, Leave No Trace, etc.). But most women were confined to the indie film world. In fact, the number of women directing top Hollywood films dropped again in 2018, with women directing only 8% of last year’s highest-grossing movies.

-The biggest surprise of this week is that Bumblebee is still holding strong at 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. Is this what happens when you let a woman write a Transformers movie?

-This also surprises me: worldwide, Aquaman has now made more money than Wonder Woman.

-This New York Times article about the exploding popularity of Turkish dramas is certainly making me feel better about my recent TV rabbit holes. They’re so good, but so confusing? Why do they blur out all the alcohol bottles? Why do people say “bon appetit” after they’ve already eaten? What kind of a greeting is “work easy”? I have no idea, but I love it.

Punisher season 2’s trailer has been released, along with the premiere date (Jan 18). There’s no mention of Karen, so I’m not interested.

-Speaking of upcoming TV, Better Things season 3 starts Feb 28, and Killing Eve season 2 is coming on April 7 (which is wayyyy sooner than anyone expected).

-Fox’s new celebrity talent show The Masked Singer, based on a South Korean show in which famous people wear masks and compete in a singing competition, is a big hit. Getting an impressive 2.9 rating in the A18-49 demo and 9.2M viewers, last night’s ep was the network’s top-rated series launch since Empire four years ago. Critics seem to love it, too.

Bill Hader broke down in a new interview when talking about the fact that he only spent 5 days with his kids last summer.

-Lifetime’s three-night documentary on R. Kelly is airing this week, and by all accounts it’s a harrowing and explosive look at not only the singer, but his famous friends and enablers.

-I really liked this interview with Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer on the end of Broad City and what’s next for them. (Though I wanted to hear more about the legal issues with creating a season premiere produced in a way that looks like Instagram Stories.)
