Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s Montreal Date Night

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have taken their PDA tour to Montreal.

-Twitter is in chaos over this late-breaking Deadline report that Sony has ended its agreement with Marvel Studios, pulling Spider-Man out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Kevin Feige no longer being a part of the production of the sequels. The knee jerk reaction is that this is a really bad move on Sony’s part, who seem to believe that their success with Venom and Into the Spiderverse means they’re creatively strong enough to go it alone. But I can’t help but wonder if Disney leaked the news of the breakdown in talks to get fans all riled up and make the optics so bad they they force Sony to accept Disney’s bonkers demand for a 50/50 profit split. The next Tom Holland-led Spider-Man movie isn’t supposed to land until 2022. That’s a lot of time to weaponize fan outcry and negotiate using the press.

-Speaking of crazy movie news, Matrix 4 is officially a go with Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Lana Wachowski all signed on. What is happening today?!?

-A second person has come forward accusing Katy Perry of sexual harassment.

-This Variety cover story about how celebrities are  driving the podcast revolution is … odd. Nearly every good podcast I’ve listened to, from when I started ten years ago to today, comes from writers/journalists.

Adam Brody shot down rumours of a reboot of The OC but honestly, I could see it happening based on where all those actors ended up career-wise.

Brody Jenner is speaking up for his ex Kaitlynn Carter, saying there is “far too much negativity” being directed at her since photos of her and Miley Cyrus surfaced. Which is kind of a decent thing for him to do, so I’m very confused.

-Oh and Brody and Kaitlynn weren’t actually married. Neither were Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux. This article about all the celebrities who’ve had weddings without legally getting married is bananas.

-The most followed YouTuber, PewDiePie, just got married. The teen in your life really cares about this, trust.

-I don’t watch Neftlix’s Elite, but my entire TL was very excited about this new season 2 trailer.

-This is the time of year when TV DVD sets hit, which means this is when we get the most blooper reels. Here’s the latest from Arrow, Schitt’s Creek, and Riverdale.

-It’s crazy to me that a British dramedy that critics are comparing to Fleabag and that stars Sharon Horgan from Catastrophe and Tobias Menzies from Outlander is not only debuting this week to so little fanfare that I had never even heard about it before Sepinwall posted his review, but a bunch of TV critics whose job it is to know these things were also in the dark.

-Succession has been renewed for season 3. I love those rich assholes.

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver break down a Marriage Story in two new teasers for Noah Baumbach‘s upcoming drama, which tells the story of a divorce from two different perspectives.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Split

-The big news of the weekend was that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are splitting after less than a year of marriage. The announcement came after came after Cyrus was photographed kissing Kaitlynn Carter, Brody Jenner’s ex, while on holiday in Italy.

Hemsworth was approached this morning by The Daily Mail Australia while out in Byron Bay. “You don’t understand what it’s like,” the actor told the outlet. “I don’t want to talk about it, mate.” 😢

-The Morning Show, Apple’s new show starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, released its first teaser. (It’ll be available via Apple TV but the cost still hasn’t been announced, which seems nuts since this streaming service is set to launch in like a month.)

Josh Kloss, the actor who played Katy Perry’s love interest in her 2010 “Teenage Dream” video (aka the best pop song of the last 10 years), shared a lengthy Instagram post detailing the alleged humiliation he suffered at the hands of the pop star. He said she was “cool and kind” in private but “cold as ice” whenever other people were around, and claims she once pants’d him in public.

Priyanka Chopra was at BeautyCon this past weekend and was asked about her previous tweet on the India–Pakistan conflict. Her response was not great, bob.

Kim Cattrall won’t stop talking about another Sex and the City movie — even if we wish she would. “It was a blessing in so many ways but after the second movie I’d had enough. I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t just replace me with another actress instead of wasting time bullying. No means no.”

Lady Gaga is donating school supplies to the communities of El Paso, Dayton, and Gilroy.

-The Teen Choice Awards always make me feel old, but last night’s was especially a doozy. So many YouTube stars I don’t care about!

Chris Evans tweet-flirting with Yvette Nicole Brown on her birthday is very cute.

Olivia Colman is my queen — and now she’s everyone’s. Netflix released the first look at the actress as Queen Elizabeth II in season three of The Crown, out Nov 17.

Sarah Silverman says she was recently fired from new movie after a photo of her in blackface from her show resurfaced. (She’s talked about it before, calling it her most “regrettable joke” back in 2015). “There’s a still of me on Twitter in blackface and it’s totally out of context and I tweeted it when Twitter was new and the people who followed me watched that show and it was from that show. Now it’s forever there and it looks…it’s totally racist out of context and I regret that.”

-Alanis Morissette‘s third child, Winter Mercy Morissette-Treadway, was born last week.

-Based on a Trump remark and some conservative faux-paranoia around a movie no one has even seen yet, Universal has cancelled The Hunt release. This makes no sense — not only have movies like The Purge franchise existed for years, if anything right-wingers should love a film about poor people rising up to defeat rich elites. What’s it gonna take for us to get Betty Gilpin: action star?!

-In happier news, The Farewell continues to be the lil’ movie that could. It has boosted its domestic haul to $10.2 million.

-Netflix dropped the first trailer for My Name Is Dolemite starring Eddie Murphy as comedy and rap pioneer Rudy Ray Moore.

 

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Are Engaged

Orlando Bloom proposed to Katy Perry on Valentine’s Day, which is a very Orlando Bloom-y thing to do.

-This is a really good interview with Meg Ryan, in which she talks about burning out and the pressures of being America’s sweetheart. I love her metaphor for fame: “Ever get in a car — maybe it’s a superexpensive car — and the inside’s lovely, you can’t complain about it, but you can’t hear anything outside, because there’s so much metal? There’s so much between you and everything else. You’re at a disadvantage as a young, famous person because you don’t know who’s telling you the truth.”

-There was a very, very disturbing tweet from a Chicago news reporter last night that suggested Jussie Smollett may have staged his racist attack because he was worried he was be written out Empire. Fox Entertainment immediately denied that possibility and stood by the actor, and Empire producer Danny Strong tweeted that there was “0% truth he was being written off,” and police say there is no evidence that it was staged. Meanwhile, two suspects have been arrested.

-Whenever I see video from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s house, I get so confused. How is she calling this their living room? Where is their furniture? It’s just a big, cavernous white space. Do they have a whole wing that they devote just to IG videos?

Terry Crews talked about what it’s like to be the leading male voice in the #MeToo movement: “It feels scary, there’s no other way to really describe. I’ve had a lot of men who are very, very angry. They’re angry at me because I’ve changed the narrative. The only way I can describe it is that there’s a movie that everybody’s playing in their head and the movie doesn’t end up the way they want it.”

-I’m in love with every single thing we’re hearing about Amazon’s Good Omens series, which will premiere on May 31.

-Showtime’s new comedy series Desus & Mero is getting crazy buzz that’s to glowing early reviews, a stellar writing team, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as their first guest.

-Here’s the first trailer for Killing Eve season 2, which seems to pick up exactly where we left off.

-After heavy-hitting celebs like Brad Pitt, Alfonso Cuaron and George Clooney blasted the Oscars for planning to hand out Best Editing and Best Cinematography during commercial breaks, the Academy is now saying we all misunderstood. Uh huh.

-This photo that JJ Abrams tweeted out to celebrate the last day of shooting on Star Wars Episode IX is all kinds of perfect.

-Finding out that Tom Cruise’s character is Collateral was named Vincent Collateral has greatly enriched my life.

-R. Kelly might soon be indicted in Illinois, based on a new 45-min video that allegedly shows the singer sexually assaulting an underage girl.

-I’ve always wanted good things for Mandy Moore, but now I really, really want them following that New York Time’s article on Ryan Adams.

-Hurrah! Jared Leto‘s Joker spinoff has reportedly been shelved.

Mark Ruffalo still gives good Twitter.

-Sending out good vibes to Justin Bieber, who is reportedly seeking professional help for depression.

-Early tracking for Captain Marvel place it at a $100M opening and I want it to crush that!

-I wasn’t going to watch Netflix’s Umbrella Academy but this dance scene clip might have just changed my mind.

-It’s not surprising that Netflix has ordered a sequel to The Kissing Booth, but can they make the next one less problematic?

-Apple is set to show the first clips of their originals shows at an event in March — and hopefully announce where/how we can watch them.

Nicholas Hoult plays a hot young J.R.R. Tolkien in the first Tolkien trailer.

-In the trailer for Long Shot, Charlize Theron plays a presidential candidate and Seth Rogen plays the schlubby journalist who catches her eye, and damned if I’m not totally charmed by this whole thing!
