Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton Remain Extra

Gwen Stefani is bored and has given Blake Shelton stripes in his mullet. I approve.

-They’re also dressing in matching outfits, which I approve of less.

Meghan Markle is reportedly planning to relaunch her lifestyle blog The Tig and honestly I want nothing more.

-Meanwhile, she and Prince Harry have hired a former Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation staffer to head their non-profit.

-At one point does one become *too* invested in Joshua Jackson and Jodie Turner-Smith‘s relationship? Asking for a friend.

-The stars of Contagion (Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Laurence Fishburne and Jennifer Ehle) teamed up with scientists at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health to shoot PSAs about physical distancing.

-A woman filed a lawsuit against rapper French Montana, claiming he sexually assaulted her at a house party. She says he and his business partner Mansour Bennouna gave her a shot and she blacked out.

Britney Spears says she was obviously just joking when she said she’d beaten Usain Bolt‘s sprint record.

-The world is a garbage fire, but doing this roundup of celebrities who are donating their time and money to support coronavirus relief made me feel a teeny bit better.

-Also making me feel better: Killing Eve will premiere two weeks ahead of schedule on Sunday, April 12 on CTV Drama.

-Ok, so I finally broke down and started watching Tiger King. I found the first episode kind of boring but then by the end of episode 2 I was hooked. This show is bananas.

Oscar Isaac appeared on Alan Doyle’s FB live to sing “Never Had” and it was very hot.

-I was not expecting Lupita Nyong’o to land the January cover of Vogue, but I’m not complaining!

Nicole Kidman is me that one time my mom was sick and I had to make the entire Christmas dinner on my own.

-I love how the internet is obsessed with the Netflix movie A Christmas Prince. I didn’t like it and yet will probably watch it at least twice again before Christmas.

Sufjan Stevens’s musical tribute to Tonya Harding didn’t make the cut for the movie, but it’s still beautiful.

Fergie is talking about her past addiction to crystal meth.

-I really like Jane the Virgin’s Justin Baldoni. He’s super earnest and that usually bugs me, but for some reason it looks on him. Here’s a part of his TED Talk on supporting women.

-This NYT profile on Gabrielle Union is excellent, and she brings up a very valid point. “I think the floodgates have opened for white women. I don’t think it’s a coincidence whose pain has been taken seriously. Whose pain we have showed historically and continued to show. Whose pain is tolerable and whose pain is intolerable.” This video is incredibly powerful.

-It must suck to be Kate Winslet on this press junket, where she can’t help but answer questions about the film’s director, Woody Allen. Still, she’s got to be able to do better than this.

-Meanwhile, Dylan Farrow asks the tough question: Why has the #MeToo revolution spared Woody Allen?

CTV Moves Up Hip Doc In Tribute To Gord Downie

-In tribute to Gord Downie, who passed away today, CTV has moved up the premiere of the Tragically Hip doc to this Friday night.

Ryan Reynolds, Seth Rogen and more reacted to Gord’s death on Twitter.

-Meanwhile, of all the stories and tributes that came out today, this Twitter thread is my absolute favourite.

-I follow a lot of TV critics, and absolute favourite has always been Mo Ryan of Variety (previously of HuffPo). She has just as much respect for “low brow” network fare as “prestige” drama, she is constantly and publicly pushing for more diversity in front of and behind the camera, and she frequently gives voice to fan causes (the most recent being the “kill your gays” trope sparked by The 100). So I was absolutely gutted this morning to read her account of being sexually assaulted by a TV executive three years ago at an industry event.

Kevin Smith says he’s going to donate future revenue from his Weinstein-backed movies to charity.

Channing Tatum is walking the walk by announcing that he’s halting development on the movie he was supposed to make with Weinstein’s company.

Laura Dern opened up about being sexually harassed on Ellen’s show today.

Kate Winslet is in the super awkward position of having to talk about Harvey Weinstein — while also promote her new Woody Allen movie. In a new interview, she says she refused to thank him in her 2009 Oscar speech.  “I remember being told, ‘Make sure you thank Harvey if you win.’ And I remember turning around and saying, ‘No, I won’t. No, I won’t.'”

Casey Affleck has just been cast in Alfonso Cuarón‘s horror drama TV series, proving nothing ever changes.

Charlyne Yi took to Twitter yesterday to recall the time David Cross introduced himself with a racist comment. He doesn’t remember it that way.

Johnny Depp is now suing his lawyer, accusing him and his firm of swindling almost $35M.

-Early reactions to Thor: Ragnarok are in — and most critics seem to dig it.

Blake Lively is redefining extra with all these press tour looks.

-My entire Twitter TL is obsessed with a Norwegian teen drama called Skam — and Facebook just announced they’re doing a US remake of it.

-Ex-Blink-182 guitarist Tom DeLonge hopes to discover aliens with his crowdfunded spaceship. You do you, bud.

-The ratings news for Riverdale just keep getting better and better. Now that the live-plus-3 ratings have come in, the premiere saw its teen audience go up by 400%. This stuff just doesn’t happen on broadcast TV anymore. The power of Netflix binges!

-The Pussycat Dolls are disputing a claim made by a former member that the group is a front for a “prostitution ring.” Whoa.

-I’m not entirely convinced that Ian Somerhalder is famous enough to be mocked on SNL, but this certainly does seem like him…

-The first trailer for Louis C.K.‘s I Love You, Daddy has arrived  — at the worst possible timing. I wonder what kind of appetite there is for a movie about a Woody Allen-type character, created by a guy who refuses to address his sexual harassment allegations.
