Harry Styles Defends His Teen Fans


-One Direction’s Harry Styles was interviewed by Cameron Crowe for Rolling Stone’s new cover story and it’s surprisingly great considering how he usually seems to mess with his fandom. He praises teen girls’ pure unironic enjoyment of things (“Who’s to say that young girls who like pop music – short for popular, right? – have worse musical taste than a 30-year-old hipster guy?…If they like you, they’re there. They don’t act ‘too cool.'”) and ridicules the tortured artist stereotype (“There’s nothing worse than an inauthentic tortured person. ‘They took my allowance away, so I did heroin.’ It’s like – that’s not how it works.”)

-Alright, Blake Lively gets a pass for being on the Variety cover because she’s promoting her work with the Child Rescue Coalition (which is promoting technology that flags the IP addresses of people who share and download sexually explicit images of minors).

Blake also revealed that she loves to do the dance from The OA.

-Speaking of the Variety covers, Jessica Chastain talks about how she’s fighting for Planned Parenthood.

-This was my favourite part of the Pretty Little Liars oral history: “I created a little box that hung on the wall. If you asked a logic question [about the show’s plot], you had to put a dollar in it.” Well, at least they’re honest about it.

Tracy Morgan still calls his 30 Rock costar Jack McBrayer by his character’s name, Kenneth, which might be the most Tracy Morgan-ist thing I’ve ever heard.

Don Cheadle rapping Kendrick Lamar in the “DNA” video is even better than it sounds.

James Corden challenged The Night Of’s Riz Ahmed to a rap battle and lost rul hard. Riz also performed with his band Swet Shop Boys at Coachella and looked mighty fine doing it.

Beyonce and Jesse Williams Light Up BET Awards

-I was switching between the BET Awards and the Game of Thrones finale last night, but luckily I happened to catch the two moments from the ceremony that everyone is talking about: Beyonce’s insane opening number with Kendrick Lamar (which was not announced in advance — probably because BET was burned the last time they hyped her appearance and she ended up only showing up via Skype), and Jesse Williams’ amazing speech. (The fact that one of the first thing he acknowledges is the contributions of black women — when has that ever happened before?!) His Tumblr is also great, as is this Twitter story of him previously stepping up without wanting any acknowledgement or publicity.

-Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake hit up Twitter after Jesse‘s speech with some weird tweets that veered dangerously close to #AllLivesMatter territory, so Twitter hits back.

-In Game of Thrones news, here are all the times before last night’s finale when the show tried to tell us who Jon Snow’s parents are.

Blake Lively‘s terrible chopping skills are giving me life.

-Meanwhile, Blake says “there’s a strong chance” there will be a third Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants movie. Huh.

Mindy Kaling has a list of very reasonable requirements for her spin instructors.

Matthew McConaughey says he had “a big crush” on Sarah Jessica Parker when he was younger. Sure, but do y’all remember when he called her “peculiar” on Oprah? #NeverForget

50 Cent was arrested in the Caribbean for swearing. Remind me to never go to the Caribbean.

Jenny Slate and Chris Evans attended the The Secret Life Of Pets premiere in NYC together and they look adorable! I mean, I wish he’d dressed up a little but the adorableness is still overshadowing it.

Winona Ryder talked  about her relationship with Johnny Depp, saying he was “never abusive at all towards me” when they dated — 23 years ago.

Kanye West just shared a bunch of naked pictures of Kim Kardashian with the world, cause why not?

Ryan Gosling still does not get where the “Hey Girl” thing came from.

Justin Bieber was roasted this weekend. The special doesn’t air on Comedy Central until March 30, but the internets have helpfully compiled all the nastiest burns. (The Hannibal Buress ones are especially epic.) Don’t feel too bad for the Biebs, though; he asked for it.

-Meanwhile, his Men’s Health feature also backfired. Sure, he got to show off his baby abs on the cover, but the accompanying article is super scathing.

Meanwhile, The Jinx creators cancelled a bunch of scheduled interviews today and keep ducking questions about the timeline of the confession.
