Diddy’s New Era

Sean Combs landed the cover of Vanity Fair’s September issue, talking about the next phase in his career — launching a record label.

Christine Baranski looks like the queen that she is in V Magazine. She talks about acting since 1980 (“I was in my 60s before I was number one on the call sheet. I just continue working and try to be defined by the work that I do. I’m not interested in selling myself or putting myself in quotation marks.”)

-Speaking of The Good Fight, this season is the first time they did an animated song that I didn’t really agree with. Still catchy though.

-There are rumours that Emma Stone, Emily Blunt, and Gerard Butler might be following Scarlett Johansson’s lead and looking into legal action about their streaming revenue.

Blunt’s Jungle Cruise rode to a better-than-expected opening of $34.2 million at the domestic box office.

Jennifer Lopez was spotted wearing the Harry Winston’s bracelet Ben Affleck gave her back in 2002. It’s as awful as I remembered it.

Matt Damon‘s poor publicist managed to craft a decent statement about how he used the f-word until recently when he got schooled by his daughter, but it doesn’t really wash the stink off the fact that he willingly volunteered that story in the press, expecting to be lauded for his wokeness.

Princess Eugenie‘s husband Jack Brooksbank was photographed on a yacht with a topless woman while wrapping his arm around another. Fergie has defended her son-in-law, saying he was “just doing his job” as a brand ambassador for Casamigos. I mean, that’s exactly how I’d expect a brand ambassador for a tequila brand to act, so I guess she’s not wrong?

Kathy Griffin revealed that she has lung cancer and will undergo surgery.

-Cha-ching! Reese Witherspoon just sold her production company for almost $1 billion.

Dolly Parton, who is estimated to have earned millions of dollars in royalties for writing “I Will Always Love You” in 1973, revealed this week how she spent her money from the songwriting credit for Whitney Houston: She invested in a building located in a historically Black Nashville neighborhood.

Jon Hamm Reveals Why He’ll Never Join Social Media

-I’m a big fan of Jon Hamm (have you ever heard him on comedy podcasts? He’s a goddamn delight), but this interview with InStyle is kinda … ugh. He calls Snapchat filters “the visual equivalent of masturbating”? Actually sir, the the visual equivalent of masturbating is seeing photos of you in tight pants.

-Also, was Jon Hamm was flirting with Kate Beckinsale at the Baby Driver premiere? Probably not, but I can dream.

Rebel Wilson’s defamation case continues with accusations of pre interview lies, and a fixation on Walt Disney.

-This is refreshingly frank: Milla Jovovich almost quit Resident Evil when Michelle Rodriguez was cast. “[They] rewrote the script for her. It pretty much made my character ‘the girl,’ and Rain was ‘the guy.’ She got all of my big action scenes, and she became like Alice. And then Alice became this tag-along.”

-Was this week’s TV cancellations the first indication of cracks in Netflix’s facade?

-HBO may push Game of Thrones’ final season to 2019.

-Here’s what a defiant Kathy Griffin said at her Trump news conference. (Spoiler: She’s not backing down.)

Brandy is home resting after being hospitalized for losing consciousness on an airplane. I really hope the disturbing blind items that have been floating around aren’t the reason for this.

-This Rihanna-Kevin Durant feud is the only kind of basketball drama I can get behind. I like that she’s basically morphing into Jack Nicholson before our eyes…

-A lot of movie trailers use Imagine Dragons songs. Like, a lot.

-Wonder Woman scored $11M on Thursday night, making it the best preview night for a movie by a female director. I really hope it cracks $100M this weekend. I also hope people understand what they’re talking about when they compare it to other superhero films. It cost $120M to make unlike, save BtvS, which cost $250M.

Tom Cruise revealed the Top Gun sequel title: Maverick .

Scott Wolf takes an ’emotional’ look back at Party Of Five’s intervention episode. Oh god, I remember watching this with my mom and we just bawled. When Claudia tells him that she won’t see him anymore? “I love you the best.” Gah!

-This trailer for Amazon’s The Last Tycoon, Matt Bomer’s new period drama.

-Here’s the trailer for Strange Weather starring Holly Hunter and Carrie Coon.

THR Calls Wonder Woman a “Gamble,” Twitter Claps Back

wonder-woman-patty-jenkins-gal-gadot

-This take is TRASH: the Hollywood Reporter’s cover story says Warner Bros is “gambling $150M” on Wonder Woman’s female director because her only prior big screen credit is the $8M Oscar-nominated, critically acclaimed Monster. Seriously? As Twitter was quick to point out, Hollywood handed the keys to the Jurassic franchise over to Colin Trevorow, who had only done the $750K Safety Not Guaranteed, which wasn’t nominated for shit and no one saw it. Or what about Josh Trank, who jumped from teeny tiny indie Chronicle to Fantastic Four? Same with Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Gareth Edwards, Jon Watts, Alan Taylor, David Yates, James Gunn, etc. Hollywood throws money at white men who barely have a YouTube channel all the time. But this is a gamble that requires hand-wringing? Nah, son.

-Meanwhile, This Wonder Woman featurette is 13 minutes of pure joy.

-Felicity reunion alert! Keri Russell and Scott Speedman appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live together and it made my heart grow three sizes. The part where he talks about how they dated and he was “such a disaster of a boyfriend”? Kill me.

-Oh god, did Robin Wright take Sean Penn back? Why????

– Jennifer Garner is on the cover of People and it confused everyone because it’s kind of a nothing article. It turns out she had no involvement in the story at all. She took to Facebook to say “This isn’t a tragedy by any measure, but it does affect me and my family and so, before my mom’s garden club lights up her phone, I wanted to set the record straight: I did not pose for this cover. I did not participate in or authorize this article. While we are here, for what it’s worth: I have three wonderful kids and my family is complete.” A celebrity calling out People like this? Yikes.

Arcade Fire is going full glam-era Bowie with their new track, which is impossible to link to because it keeps getting pulled from YouTube.

-NBC changed its mind and won’t move This Is Us to Thursday nights after all. Why mess with the only genuine hit of the year?

Kathy Griffin apologized for her Trump decapitation photo, saying “I am sorry. I went too far. I was wrong.” CNN has fired her anyway.

Drake scored a huge victory in his sampling lawsuit with a fair use argument about “real music.”

-Less of a victory: JLo just dismissed him as a booty call.

-67 million of Katy Perry‘s followers may be fake.

-Vulture is asking the right questions in this piece wondering how the hell Johnny Depp keeps getting cast in movies.
