Katy Perry: Motherhood Healed “Pain in My Heart”

L’Officiel’s-Summer-Issue-Katy-Perry

-I didn’t even recognize Katy Perry on the cover of L’OFFICIEL. She talked about how her life has changed since she welcomed her daughter Daisy. “As a performer I’ve always relied on the love and acceptance and validation of the outside world and that ultimately can waver at times. When you have a child, you have someone who looks at you and doesn’t know anything on your resume, doesn’t know anything about your bank account, doesn’t know anything, doesn’t care, and just loves you. Unconditional love. It’s just…everything I think I was looking for.”

-I love that Nicholas Braun landed a British GQ cover. Sadly, he wasn’t asked about DeuxMoi’s obsession with his sex life.

Taylor Swift is going to try to shake off the Cats stink with another swing at acting. She’s joined the cast of David O. Russell’s next film, starring alongside Christian Bale and Margot Robbie.

Kate Winslet was interviewed by Maureen Dowd for the NYT, and her reaction to the rapid fire round is hilarious. When asked about following Bennifer news she replied “What? No! I’ve never read about Jennifer in my life. What are these questions?”

-She also talked about insisting on being unglamorous for Mare of Easttown, and says she disapproved the promotional poster twice because she was too retouched. “They were like ‘Kate, really, you can’t,’ and I’m like ‘Guys, I know how many lines I have by the side of my eye, please put them all back.’… I guess that’s why people have connected with this character in the way that they have done because there are clearly no filters. She’s a fully functioning, flawed woman with a body and a face that moves in a way that is synonymous with her age and her life and where she comes from. I think we’re starved of that a bit.”

-The Amell cousins are returning for a Code 8 sequel. Hopefully they can pay for it themselves this time.

Julianne Hough’s teen niece posted a TikTok saying “My aunt has slept with Leonardo DiCaprio. Apparently, he’s not good in bed, though.” She didn’t mention if he wore headphones, though.

-The Friends cast received at least $2.5 million each to appear in the special.

-In their latest podcast, Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke spoke about Mischa Barton’s recent comments on her poor treatment during the filming of The O.C. “Where is she going with this and what is she trying to say? I would actually like to talk to her and find out what her experience was from her perspective, because I saw things a little differently.”

Martin Freeman called method acting “the most self-aggrandizing, selfish, narcissistic f**king bollocks I have ever seen.” My favourite method acting story when Dustin Hoffman told Laurence Olivier that he hadn’t slept because he was filming a scene where his character was up for three days straight, and Olivier replied “Why don’t you just try acting?”

Kelly Osbourne appeared on Red Table Talk and discussed her relapse during the pandemic after 4 years of sobriety.

-Congrats to Lance Bass, who’s expecting twins with his hubby.

-Broad City’s Ilana Glazer stars in the new pregnancy horror film False Positive.

 

Harry Styles Fed the Fish

-God, could you imagine being a Harry Styles fan and finding out that while you out, your dad let him in and he wandered around your house leaving you cute notes? This sounds like the start of a rom-com.

-Speaking of rom-coms, someone made a rom-com trailer for The Haunting of Bly Manor and I want to watch that version of the show.

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost got married over the weekend, and they broke the news via Meals on Wheels’ Instagram with a plea to donate. Which I kind of love?

-Gem of a human Paul Rudd handed out cookies to people in the rain waiting in line to vote in Brooklyn.

-Halloween may be cancelled for many of us, but not for the famous ones. George Clooney and Rande Gerber have tricked out a Casamigos truck and will drop off booze to their pals.

-Well, well, well. A couple of days ago when Stephen Amell talked about getting covid despite how “safe” he’s been, I mentioned that I’ve noticed some non-safe looking activity on his and his friends’ social media. And now a source is telling Page Six that he hosted a birthday party for his wife in Palm Springs (which he presumably flew to from shooting Heels in Atlanta). One of his BFFs also announced she has it, as did his wife, who did an IG Live yesterday but claims she has no idea where she got it.

Karlie Kloss and husband Joshua Kushner are expecting their first child.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom sang a song about voting and it was cute. Very out of tune, but cute.

Nicole Kidman continues to sign onto TV shows and I love this for her. She’s star and produce Amazon’s Things I Know to Be True.

-Here’s the full trailer for the new season of The Crown, which sees Olivia Colman‘s Queen clash with Gillian Anderson‘s Margaret Thatcher.

-Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams leaves her sheltered life with her mom to hunt down her father’s killer in the Two Weeks To Live trailer.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky Get Flirty For Fenty

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky sat down to interview each other and talked skincare, beauty icons, favourite TV shows, and classic cartoons. They’ve got an adorable rapport. I love when she makes fun of his first red carpet appearance: “You coulda used some Fenty Skin back then.”

-Congrats to Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, just welcomed a baby girl to the world, their first child together: Daisy Dove Bloom. (Ok, I gotta give it to them. Daisy Bloom is an adorable name.)

-Also, I very much like that they announced the news on UNICEF’s Instagram account with a statement about the need for pre- and post-natal healthcare for women around the world.

Jessica Mulroney would like to remind you all that Meghan Markle is her BFF, ok?

-This interview with Tiffany Haddish and John Mulaney is a delight, especially the bit with Haddish talking about wearing a prosthetic penis for confidence.

This is a good look at how Trevor Noah‘s The Daily Show has gone from being jokes about the news to, more and more, the news with some jokes amid the pandemic — and it’s clearly working. His viewership numbers are astounding, and his videos have racked up millions of views on YouTube, including an extended interview he released in March that went viral.

-It’s worth watching Stephen Colbert’s segment last night, in which he talked about how NBA players are showing more leadership than the RNC convention. “Why should we pay attention to what they’re saying if none of what they’re saying tonight is about what’s happening in America right now? Why should we watch their reality show if it doesn’t reflect our reality?”

-In an new Zoom chat, Issa Rae and Yvonne Orji talked the most emotional scenes to shoot for Insecure season four. God, I hope they both clean up at the Emmys.

-Speaking of Emmy campaign appearances, watching Succession stars Sarah Snook and Matthew Macfadyen get giggly over Shiv and Tom is a delight.

-Grey’s Anatomy alum Sara Ramirez has announced that they are non-binary. They quietly changed their pronouns on social media a while back, and today they posted about their gender directly: “In me is the capacity to be Girlish boy, Boyish girl, Boyish boy, Girlish girl, All, Neither.”

-This is a great piece explaining OnlyFans, the spotlight on its new celebrity users, and how platforms defined and popularized by sex workers are often the first ones to deny them their place at the table.

Jaden Smith and Cara Delevingne‘s upcoming romantic drama Life In a Year is facing an uncertain future now that two of its supporting actors (Cuba Gooding Jr. and Chris D’Elia) are facing sexual misconduct claims.

-Not today, Terry Crews!

-Bravo is moving forward with its reality TV production, even Top Chef. All the contestants and judges will have to be tested and quarantined before production begins, the set will be socially distanced, and the judges won’t share food anymore.

-People are on baby bump watch for Jennifer Lawrence because of these pics.

-Weirdly, there’s lots of talk that TIFF is denying critics press accreditation this year — which makes no sense because pretty much everything is digital so it’s not like there’s capacity concerns. Hopefully this is a sign that they’re reversing their rejections.

-The Ringer posted a history of movie costars who hated each other and it’s exactly the type of content I needed today.

Anya Taylor-Joy and Marielle Heller star in the trailer for The Queen’s Gambit, Netflix’s limited series adaptation of Walter Tevis‘ novel.
