Is Lady Gaga Dating Jeremy Renner?

-If you had asked me what famous person Lady Gaga would date next, Jeremy Renner would have been way, way, way down on the bottom of my list of guesses. But here were are! Maybe. People says they’ve been spending lots of time together, while a source tells Us Weekly it might not be romantic yet.  What do you think a date with Renner even looks like? I’m guessing it’s filled with a lot of boring house-flipping talk.

Noah Centineo is in talks to play He-Man in the Masters of the Universe reboot. Considering how hot he was after To All The Boys, this career move seems…bad?

-Hipster super couple Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach just had a baby.

-Bummer. Dan and Eugene Levy announced today that they’ve decided to end Schitt’s Creek with season 6. It’s always good to see creatives being allowed to bow out on their own terms, but it also feels like our quirky lil’ Canadian show was just starting to pick up steam popularity-wise (especially in the US).

Richard E. Grant continues to be a delightful tea spiller. He says Julianne Moore was fired from Can You Ever Forgive Me? because she wanted to wear a fat suit and fake nose.

-The Cruel Intentions cast spills backstage secrets in this oral history to celebrate the film’s 20 year anniversary. Joshua Jackson remembers how Reese Witherspoon hooked him up with a car rental place that would rent to underage drivers, Ryan Phillippe talks about showing his butt, and Sarah Michelle Gellar praises Selma Blair‘s soft lips.

-On the Us press tour, Winston Duke was asked about Michael Jackson and somehow seamlessly pivoted the conversation back to the theme of the movie he’s promoting without appearing to sidestep the question. This deserves a slow clap.

-While promoting her new album, Jenny Lewis talked about the “f*cked up” allegations against frequent collaborator Ryan Adams. “I was so sad on so many levels when I heard. I hate that he’s on this album, but you can’t rewrite how things went.”

-This is a pretty fascinating profile on Roseanne Barr, who seems to regret nothing.

Jenny McCarthy is shit-talking her experience on The View in a new book.

Lizzy Caplan and Eight Grade star Elsie Fisher just joined season two of Castle Rock. Also, I just learned that Fisher has a Dungeons and Dragons podcast, which is all kinds of adorable.

-I never watched Deadwood but I was pretty convinced the movie was never going to happen after years (and years) of delays. But HBO just released the first trailer, so what do I know?

-This is tragic. Budding country singer Justin Carter died of an accidental shooting after a prop gun from a music video went off in his apartment.

-A new trailer for John Wick: Chapter 3 just dropped.

Taylor Swift Talks Pop’s Power

-It’s not new music but it’s something. Taylor Swift covers the new issue of Elle UK, for which she penned an essay about the power pop songs have to anchor you to a specific moment in your life. (I really like what’s going on with her bangs here.)

-Oh god. Luke Perry reportedly had a massive stroke and is in the hospital. At least his spokesperson is denying reports that he’s been placed in a medically induced coma.

Priyanka Chopra didn’t go to pal Meghan Markle‘s baby shower in NYC last week — and it’s reportedly because she’s miffed at Markle for missing her wedding to Nick Jonas.

Kim Kardashian went to Montreal and was seemingly unaware that it is winter in Canada.

-On Kimmel last night, Lady Gaga reminded everyone that her Oscar performance with Bradley Cooper was just that — a performance. “Yes, people saw love and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see…Look, I’ve had my arms wrapped around Tony Bennett for three years touring the world. When you’re singing love songs, that’s what you want people to feel.” IRL shipping is so weird. Maybe now everyone can all stop hoping that he’s going to leave the mother of his child for his costar?

-Every Fosse/Verdon trailer that FX releases is even better than the last.

Idris Elba is a DJ-turned-manny in the trailer for Netflix’s Turn Up Charlie.

-Here’s the trailer for the new episodes of Arrested Development. Well, at least it actually looks like the actors were in the same room this season.

Sophie Turner‘s Jean Grey kills off a major character in the new X-Men: Dark Phoenix trailer. Uh, is it just me or does this look really bad?

 

Best and Worst Dressed at the 2019 Oscars

 

With its lack of host, endless organizational stumbles and too-close-to-call categories, no one really knew what to expect from the 2019 Oscars. But it turns out the big surprises came on the red carpet. It was a night filled with whimsy, colour, ruffles, shapes – and SO MUCH HOT PINK. Check out our picks for the best and worst looks of the night at the 91st annual Academy Awards:

BEST DRESSED AT THE 2019 OSCARS:

Jen: I thought Jennifer Lopez was going to be my favourite metallic look of the night until I saw Brie Larson‘s outfit, which I think edges out JLo’s because there’s clear strategy behind it. This is exactly what Larson needed to do before her big debut as Captain Marvel: look great but also like a goddamn superhero who can kick anyone’s ass. She rises to the task with this sexy, slinky Celine that fits her like armour. Take that, haters!

 

Nicole: Emma Stone’s Louis Vuitton gown is elegant and sculptural, with sleeves that look like tiny wings and sequined material that clings to her. I love that the sequins are layered so they didn’t lay flat. It fits perfectly and she keeps her accessories and makeup to a minimum to let the gown do all the work. It a bit of a weird look which is appropriate given the film she’s nominated for (The Favourite, which is also lovely and weird) and it feels like a grown-up choice. Love.

 

Jen: Yellow is a hard look to pull off on the carpet, but when it works it’s spectacular. Constance Wu‘s marigold Versace gives me memories of Michelle Williams’ iconic Vera Wang moment during Brokeback Mountain’s year and I heart it.

 

Nicole: I adore Rachel Weisz’s Givenchy gown. It’s a conventionally pretty gown with a flowing skirt – and then it’s topped with A HOT RED PLEATHER CROP TOP. God, I love writing those words. I’m on a real red tear right now so this immediately plays to my style obsession, plus the contrast of materials both in texture and shape make this such a daring and cool choice. She keeps her accessories tone-on-tone, opting for a black manicure and simple makeup. The headband brings the whole look back to feminine. Again, this weird gown feels wildly appropriate given the film she’s nominated for.

 

Jen: When I first saw Amy Adams I was disappointed by the colour because it felt too bridal and boring to me. But every time I caught another glimpse of her Versace dress, I feel more and more in love. I still wish it was in a brighter hue (paired with a stronger lip), but the fit is impeccable and it photographs SO well.

 

Nicole: Oh my god, Sarah Paulson in Brandon Maxwell is so awesome (I was going to write weird, but I have to stop calling all these amazing gowns weird). It’s the colour of the night and the shape is both unconventional and voluminous but also immensely flattering. Sarah is styled by Karla Welch, who often takes calculated risks with her clients (see also Tracee Ellis Ross in the same colour and volume of dress several times this year), however although she’s really pulled towards this colour and shape for her clients, this is one of the best iterations because it manages to be super interesting and lovely.

 

Jen: Pink was the surprise colour of the night, but IMO no one did it better than Gemma Chan in Valentino. Unlike Linda Cardellini‘s fuschia moment, Gemma’s wearing the dress instead of the dress wearing her. I think you have to be a “fashion” girl to really pull this off, and no one has been rocking couture this awards season as well Gemma. Plus it looks really comfortable and it has pockets (and she was using it to hide COOKIES!!), which always gets bonus points from me!

 

Nicole: Helen Mirren is so hot in this simple, flowing, vibrant pink Schiaparelli gown with a tulle overlay. It’s feminine, fresh and pretty. I’m not sure why people on social media were going after her makeup – I was so happy to see a bright lip on the red carpet. *sets out fuchsia lipstick for tomorrow*

 

Jen: Billy Porter hosted the Oscar red carpet preshow but he stole the entire show in this in voluminous Christian Siriano number. I could watch him spin all night long. Werrkkk!

 

Nicole: When I first saw Angela Bassett on the red carpet, I wrote “wowza” in my notes. I adore the structure of this fuchsia Reem Acra gown and although I wish the material looked less wrinkled, the shape is immensely flattering, the flowing low pony is so feminine and she looks every inch a goddess.

 

WORST DRESSED AT THE 2019 OSCARS:

 

Nicole: Glenn Close actually looks like she is wearing a 42lb gown – which she is. I feel like this Carolina Herrera gown is heavy, not at all flattering and it comes across like she is trying way too hard. When I think about Helen Mirren’s simple and flattering gown and hold the two side by side, Glenn looks overwhelmed. I guess 4 million beads will do that to a woman.

 

Jen: I had high, high expectations for Lady Gaga – if only because I assumed she would bring the weirdness. So imagine my disappointment when she showed up in this understated, underwhelming McQueen, with oddly jutting hips as its only distinguishing feature. She doesn’t even give us a bold red lip! At least the infamous Tiffany necklace is stunning.

 

Nicole: I actually like Melissa McCarthy’s Brandon Maxwell… outfit? I mean, I can’t call it a gown because IT’S PANTS. At the Academy Awards. I was a bit heartbroken because otherwise the shape is perfect, the colour suits her and the cape is amazing!

 

Jen: If Gemma Chan is my fave pink look of the night, then Kacey Musgraves is my least fave. She gets lost in this fluffy, cotton candy coloured mess of a Giambattista Valli gown. Tiered tulle is nobody’s friend.

 

Nicole: I want to love Charlize Theron’s Dior gown but damn. Although it highlights her tall, lean shape, the open back is not flattering and her whole (I’m guessing?) braless situation does not work. I also feel like the colour is doing her no favours. At least there isn’t a weird back strap on her dress like Irina Shayk’s. So there’s that.

 

Jen: No other nominee had a fairy tale narrative like Roma’s Yalitza Aparicio – but that doesn’t mean she had to dress like a princess. I wanted so much for her…and this Rodarte wasn’t it.
