Ocean’s 8 Cast Takes Over the Met

-The Ocean’s 8 press tour kicked off today (at the Met, which is perfect) and I am here for all the fabulous pantsuits.  Early estimates for its June 8th opening are strong.

Ariana Grande is reportedly dating Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson. I’m surprised that they’re both 24 (I thought she was way younger, and he was way older). I dig it, though. “It’s very casual” sources tell People.

-At the royal wedding, George Clooney reportedly hopped behind the bar and served tequila. He knows he doesn’t have to shill for Casamigos anymore, right?

-Meanwhile, Prince Charles‘ speech reportedly made everyone cry, while Prince William made fun of Harry‘s imminent bald patch and said “My brother is clearly in love. Being in love is like a little boy wetting himself. You don’t know you are doing it, everyone else knows and you get a warm feeling.”

-Meghan and Harry made their first public appearance as a married couple today, and the stockings really bummed me out. I was really hoping that she would somehow find a way to get around that rule…

-Talk about an upgrade: Avril Lavigne is dating a billionaire.

Vito Schnabel continues to punch above his weight when it comes to relationships. He previously dated Heidi Klum, Demi Moore, Elle Macpherson, and Liv Tyler, and now he’s reportedly with Amber Heard.

-Heard’s most recent ex, Elon Musk, is dating Grimes, who took to Twitter to defend him against rumours that he prevented his Tesla workers from unionizing.

Hugh Grant, 57, is walking down the aisle for the first time, and his fiancee is a surprisingly respectable 39! They have three kids.

-The new Arrested Development season is getting way better reviews than the last one and reportedly “feels like the show you remember.” Thank god.

-This TV season continues to be wild. Lucifer is still cancelled (so far) but Fox announced they will air two “bonus” episodes this month. Meanwhile, it looks like Amazon may swoop in to save the recently canceled The Expanse. But even rumours of a Will Ferrell role, a new showrunner and a switch to multicam couldn’t save Fox’s comedy LA to Vegas.

-Also wild: UnREAL will likely end with season four, which will air FIRST on Hulu rather than Lifetime.

-More wildin’: Barack and Michelle Obama have entered into a multi-year agreement to produce films and series for Netflix.

Kelly Clarkson opened the Billboard Music Awards by saying she was sick of moments of silence and demanding a moment of action.

R. Kelly is being accused of sexual battery, false imprisonment, and transmitting a sexual disease in a new lawsuit.

This video is very old but I’ve never seen it before and it made me kind of fall in love with Robert Downey Jr.

-I really liked Spider Man: Homecoming so I’m very here for the news that Jake Gyllenhaal will play the villainous Mysterio in the sequel.

-I saw Deadpool 2 this weekend. It was good but I am already in superhero movie fatigue and it’s only May. Judging by it’s lower than expected box office results, I’m not the only one.

-This newly released old image from Rolling Stone’s Chris Evans photo shoot saved my weekend.

Asia Argento spoke at the Cannes closing ceremony: “In 1997, I was raped by Harvey Weinstein here at Cannes. I was 21 years old. This festival was his hunting ground.” She says after her fiery speech, Spike Lee was the “the only person who came up to me, congratulated and spoke kind words to me.”

Johnny Depp plays a cop investigating Biggie Smalls’ murder in the City of Lies trailer. I am negative interested in this.

Selena Gomez looks happy and healthy on the new cover of Harper’s Bazaar, in which she talks about her complex relationship to Instagram, and her increasing appreciation for her Latin heritage.

Prince William, Catherine, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle took the stage at the first annual Royal Foundation forum. I was incredibly impressed by how well Markle did.

-It looks like Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are at it again. They were spotted together in Prague.

-An E! ex-employee backed up stylist Suzie Hardy‘s allegations against Ryan Seacrest on the Today Show, saying he witnessed several incidents of misconduct against her. “She would go to tie his shoe, and Ryan would shove her head toward his crotch. I saw that more than once.” Seacrest says Hardy is lying, and claims she offered to withdraw her allegations if he paid her millions. “This person who has accused me of horrible things tried to buy her silence by asking for money on multiple occasions — I refused. I don’t want to accuse anyone of not telling the truth but in this case, I have no choice but to again deny the claims against me, remind people that I was recused of any wrongdoing, and put the matter to rest.”

-Variety is pushing back on Seacrest‘s claim that they didn’t reach out to him for comment on their story. (Also, the replies to that thread prove that people have no idea how journalism works.)

-Meanwhile, he is still set to start shooting the new season of Idol later this week, and is still scheduled to host E!’s Oscar red carpet on Sunday.  But some publicists say they plan on steering their clients away from him.

-Also, Kelly Ripa is reportedly remaining “fully supportive” of Seacrest.

-This might be the craziest Oscars in a while in terms of how up in the air the Best Picture category is. It feels like most experts expect a tight race between Shape Of Water and Three Billboards, with a possible upset from Get Out (which I think should win).

-I love these 60-second recaps of Oscar noms.  Here’s Three Billboards, Dunkirk, Lady Bird, Phantom Thread, Call Me By Your Name and The Shape of Water. All spoilery, of course.

Nick Kroll and John Mulaney debuted their new insufferable hipster characters on Conan. I hope they host this weekend’s Spirit Awards in character.

-I’m glad that everyone is shouting out Jesse Plemons’ performance in Game Night. It feels like one of those movies that’s going to be forgotten about really quickly, but if you’re looking for something funny after the Oscars, I laughed a lot.

Kal Penn talked about his time working at the White House, and how weird it now is to be playing a White House  a press secretary on Designated Survivor.

-The early reviews for Jessica Jones’ second season is that it drags a bit, but is still good.

-Speaking of season two reviews, Atlanta is reportedly “now less a television series than a conceptual work of art — a fractured feat of storytelling that works on mood more than momentum.”

This roundtable with the stars/writers of the new Roseanne makes me want to watch the reboot.

Ta-Nehisi Coates writing Captain America makes me want to start reading comics.

Kelly Clarkson can even make Google-translated songs sound good.

-I want to watch all the movies that the kids from The Florida Project pitched.

-This is really good advice from a former Survivor star about being on reality TV.

Kevin Costner tries to survive frontier life in the trailer for Paramount Network’s new drama Yellowstone.

selena-gomez-billboard

-In her new Billboard cover Selena Gomez claims she still has a “true friendship” with The Weeknd after their split: “We ended it as best friends.”  She also talks about her and Justin Bieber finding their way back to each other: “I’m 25. I’m not 18, or 19, or 20. I cherish people who have really impacted my life. So maybe before, it could have been forcing something that wasn’t right. But that doesn’t mean caring for someone ever goes away.”

-Speaking of reunited celebs, Chris Evans and Jenny Slate are officially back on according to People, which is as official as it gets.

Blake Shelton is denying rumours that he had a secret meeting with Paul Ryan. Not very sexy, Sexiest Man Alive.

-Ha! HBO’s Confederate is now “not actively being worked on.”

-Vogue gave Michael B. Jordan the 73 Questions treatment.

Meredith Vieira once said she found a “bag of sex toys” in Matt Lauer‘s office.

Adam Driver, who basically redefined “emo,” admitted he has no idea what that word means.

-I really liked this interview with Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, talking about how every job she was offered after that had the word ‘girl’ in its title. She found herself having to tell people, “I can write for someone who’s got a penis and a set of balls. Even if he’s just got one ball and a penis, I can write for that guy too.”

-Here’s our first look at Jon Hamm in Good Omens as Angel Gabriel.

Armie Hammer demonstrated how hard it is to dance on film when there’s no music.

-I may have watched this clip of Drake being surprised by the JumboTron a ridiculous amount of time today…
