Jennifer Lopez Wears Her Iconic Green Dress at Versace’s Fashion Show

-Nearly 20 years after she wore it at the Grammy Awards, Jennifer Lopez just closed out the Versace S/S 2020 show by walking the runway in her infamous jungle print dress. She looks the same — maybe better. What kind of sorcery is this?!?

-Ya know, for someone who claims he isn’t campaigning for an Oscar, Brad Pitt sure is everywhere. He appeared in a sketch on Jimmy Fallon last night, was grilled by a kid reporter for Ellen, and he gave an interview to CNN in which he said that when his then-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow told him Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed her while she was working on Emma, he confronted him. “At that moment, I was just a boy from the Ozarks on the playground.. and that’s how we confronted with things.” (Paltrow has said that they ran into Weinstein at the Broadway opening of Hamlet and Pitt threatened to kill him if he ever made her feel uncomfortable again.)

-The reviews for the Downton Abbey movie are really positive. I wouldn’t be surprised if this thing kills at the box office this weekend.

-In a new interview, Lucy Boynton says boyfriend Rami Malek‘s fans can get too handsy for her liking. “It’s lovely to see people who are excited about his work — if they’ve seen Mr. Robot or Freddie — but it’s just that thing of people grabbing him. I mean, you’d never grab a complete stranger in the street. And I think there’s a sense of ownership. It’s OK to just come up to someone, with your camera already out, and disregard whoever they’re with. It happened when we were with my mother, and we were just shoved out of the way. It’s quite shocking.”

-Here’s the first footage of Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II in season three of The Crown. She looks amazing!

-In her new memoir, Demi Moore says she regrets having two threesomes with Ashton Kutcher during their marriage, which she says he then used as an excuse to cheat on her. “Because we had brought a third party into our relationship, Ashton said, that blurred the lines and, to some extent, justified what he’d done.”

-I enjoyed this oral history on Little Women.

-I was sure it was going to be cancelled, so I’m glad Netflix is giving GLOW a fourth and final season. That being said, I’m kinda bummed about this new TV landscape where we can’t expect shows to get renewed past seasons 3 or 4.  This thread sums it up well.

-The Between Two Ferns movie drops on Netflix today, and this clip of Keanu Reeves makes me wanna watch it. The Paul Rudd bit is good too — mostly because he spends the entirety of it trying not to break.

-The more Joker reviews I read from female critics, the less I want to watch it.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian got a visit from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department after they shared a video on social media of them harassing wild antelope.

-I love how Google is incorporating pop culture references into their entertainment-related searches. Search Friends Ross and click on the couch, Friends Pheobe and click on the guitar, or Wizard of Oz and click on the shoes.

-This is super sweet: Will Smith surprised the two kids who went viral on social media for a clip of them giving a bullied kid new clothes.

-The Quebec film Antigone has been selected to represent Canada at the Oscars. I didn’t catch it but it got raves at TIFF.

-In her Glamour UK cover story, Victoria Beckham recalls being “mentally and physically” bullied as a child. “I was never the popular girl at school and I never found anything easy and I was told ‘No’ constantly…I was bullied a lot at school, mentally and physically, and the fact that I can talk to Harper about that and how girls should be kind to girls – really I use my own experiences and share that.”

Mandy Moore just dropped the music video for her first new song in over a decade.

-Canadian Lilly Singh debuted her late night talk show last night — and she did great! Watch clips here.

-That fired SNL comedian might have just offered the worst non-apology in the history of Hollywood, which is really saying something.

-NBC’s upcoming streaming service is called Peacock and it will include a Saved By The Bell reboot with original stars Elizabeth Berkley and Mario Lopez reprising their roles, and a Battlestar Galactica revival, with a new take from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail. Parks and Rec will also move from Netflix to this new streaming service.

-Speaking of the streaming wars, Big Bang Theory has set a record-setting, eye-popping multi-BILLION-dollar streaming deal with HBO Max.

-Even Tinder is launching a streaming service? We’ve officially entered TOO MUCH TV land.

Jake Gyllenhaal shared some delightful Spider-Man bloopers on his IG.

Scaachi‘s excellent Buzzfeed profile of Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca is what everyone is talking about today. It’s a roller coaster ride of an article that started being about Duca’s new book and her Twitter fame, and ended up being about how her entire NYU summer class filing a formal complaint against her. This line took my breath away: “Congratulations, you thrillingly, thrillingly adept journalist, you have discovered that Lauren Duca is not perfect. Put it in the headline, baby.”

-The new Last Christmas trailer does nothing to allay fears that Henry Golding is playing a ghost or angel.

Kim Kardashian covers Vogue Arabia, in which she pushes back on the criticism she’s received for pursuing a law degree.  (“There is a misconception that I don’t actually have to study and that I’ve bought my way into getting a law degree – that’s absolutely not true. Being underestimated and over-delivering is my vibe.”)

-If you missed last night’s VMAs, here’s a red carpet recap. And the performance you have to check out is Normani’s Motivation. Twitter LIT UP when she was on. She’s gonna be huge.

-I love that Missy Elliott brought out Alyson Stoner (the little girl from the “Work It” video) to recreate her dance routine last night.

January Jones commenting about fellow Mad Men alum Alison Brie’s boobs at the VMAs is a good time.

Justin Theroux went wakeboarding with his The Leftovers costar Ann Dowd and I’m living for it.

-A Bachelor in Paradise contestant didn’t get the memo that the food at their date was just a prop for show only. He still attempted to choke it down, despite his companion’s repeated warnings. “When we get back to the beach and I tell everyone you ate the date food, they’re gonna give you shit. You’re not supposed to eat the date food! I’m trying to help you.”

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian ate at a Cheesecake Factory two nights in a row and I’ve never related to them more.

-SNL has lost Leslie Jones, which sucks.

-Everyone was making fun of this headline about Eva Longoria directing a Flamin’ Hot Cheetos movie, but the film is actually the story of Richard Montañez, a janitor working for Frito Lay who revitalized the company by inventing the new flavour.

-The owner of Taylor Swift‘s real-life “Cornelia Street” apartment had no idea who she was when he rented it to her. “She walked in, and I’ll never forget this — she said, ‘Oooh, it’s so crafty.’ And in Taylor-speak, that means ‘I like everything.’ She asked if she could rent not just the house but my style as well. So towels and dishes and glassware and furniture and just kind of ‘Take your clothes and go.’ So I did. She was an absolute delight to deal with.”

-In his new Netflix special, Dave Chappelle calls Michael Jackson rape accusers liars, defends Louis C.K. and Kevin Hart, and ridicules trans people. Gross.

Francis Capra (who plays Weevil on Veronica Mars) retweeted this sexist shit and I just can’t.

-On the other end of the spectrum we have Harry Styles, who embraces his female fandom instead of ridiculing it. He says in his new Rolling Stone cover story: “They’re the most honest — especially if you’re talking about teenage girls, but older as well. They have that bullsh-t detector. You want honest people as your audience. We’re so past that dumb outdated narrative of ‘Oh, these people are girls, so they don’t know what they’re talking about.’ They’re the ones who know what they’re talking about. They’re the people who listen obsessively. They f-cking own this sh-t. They’re running it.”

-This fall books preview reminded me that Rainbow Rowell has a sequel to Carry On coming out next month and I cannot wait!

-I am very interested in the new Briarpatch series, mostly because it stars Rosario Dawson and was created by one of my favourite TV critics. The trailer has me hopeful.

-Speaking of shows produced by Sam Esmail, here’s the trailer for Mr Robot’s final season.

-The new trailer for Dickinson, the upcoming Apple+ show in which Hailee Steinfeld plays poet Emily Dickinson, is very confusing. Is she…twerking??
