-I’m really not down with the styling of her Shape feature, but at this point I’m just grateful that Leighton Meester is landing magazine covers again.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez got engaged this weekend and her ring is reportedly worth $1.4M.

-1D drama: Louis Tomlinson says he stopped being friends with Zayn Malik after Malik didn’t show up when his mom died.

-Wait, Ariana Grande used to date Alicia Florrick‘s son?? And she might be dating him again?

-Congrats to Glee’s Lea Michele, who got married on Saturday.

-I love this story about a reporter asking a publicist if he could interview Ben Mendelsohn (despite him not being on the Captain Marvel press tour), and then having Mendelsohn call him to chat 10 minutes later.

-Meanwhile, Captain Marvel did even better than expected, raking in $455M US globally, including $153M in North America. Also, Brie Larson popped into a few theatres this weekend to surprise fans.

-I never thought we’d have a beef between Drake and Paul Anka, but here we are.

-In an IG post this weekend, Justin Bieber asked fans to pray for him as he revealed his recent struggles with depression.

-This entire interview with Regina King is worth a read (Support the Girls is a movie I missed last year but really want to see because I’ve only heard raves), but this bit about whether or not her pal Tiffany Haddish was telling the truth about her other pal Sanaa Lathan biting Beyonce is gold: “Let me tell you something: I could tap your leg with my foot and Tiffany would retell it as me kicking you. She’s a comedian. She can make a story, know what I mean?”

-Speaking of interviews worth your time, speaking to Vulture John Mulaney revealed he fired Louis C.K.’s former manager Dave Becky, who represents a lot of comedians, a soon as the CK article came out in the NYT, but didn’t make a statement about it. “I didn’t feel I had anything that noble to add, and issuing a simple statement of one sentence that I fired Dave seemed evasive and honestly an unhelpful use of everyone’s time and taking up oxygen.” Also, when asked about making the comedy industry safer for women, he had the perfect answer: “I have a lot of thoughts and opinions on many things. I don’t think my thoughts and opinions matter in any way compared to the women who have been directly affected by these actions. I say this not at all to be evasive, but just to not talk anymore as a male in comedy who has not had to experience this. Other people should. Women’s opinions matter, and mine does not.”

Taika Waititi is adapting Terry Gilliam’s Time Bandits for TV and I like all of those things!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle learned how to make maple taffy on snow during a visit to Canada House in London today.

-The fact that Aidy Bryant‘s new Hulu show Shrill is being compared to Better Things can only be a good thing.

-Last night, the Olivia Wilde-directed teen comedy Booksmart premiered at the SXSW Film Festival and people LOVED it. The reviews are glowing and the trailer looks great.

-Whoa. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin‘s daughter Apple is a stunner. I wonder if this post was her unofficial public debut? GP has always been very resistant to post her kids’ faces.

-Meanwhile, Dakota Johnson refuses to discuss her relationship with Chris Martin in a new interview but adds “but I’m very happy.”

-That collective gasp you just heard came from royal watchers when Meghan Markle dared to close her own car door.

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj‘s drama is far from over. The latest development? A trending hashtag called #NickiStoppedMyBag.

-Also, Taraji P. Henson does a solid Cardi B impression.

-This interview with TV writer Alan Yang is great — but the best part is when he talks about how insane Secret Santa got on the Parks and Recreation set.

-Speaking of Parks and Rec alums, Rashida Jones has reportedly welcomed a baby boy with Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig. I didn’t even know they were dating, let alone expecting.

-Today is all about undercover pregnancies! Rachel Weisz gave birth to her and Daniel Craig‘s first child.

Rihanna can’t catch a break. Her mansion has been broken into for the second time this year.

-You know what’s nuts about this photo of JLo’s muscles? She’s keeping her hand soft, which means she’s not even hard flexing! I’m so jealous!

-Comedian Ted Alexandro went to Louis C.K.’s old stomping grounds and tore him up.

-I really liked this appreciation of Keira Knightley‘s period pieces: “In all of Keira Knightley’s historical films, she is at the center. She is not relegated to the role of love interest; men are.”

-I love that Leighton Meester‘s comedy skills are highlighted in every review I’ve read for Single Parents (aka the only new sitcom I have any interest in checking out).

-What the heck is Blake Lively wearing here? (Oops, I forgot that we’re not supposed to ask her about that. Just pretend you didn’t see it!)

-Interesting to see critics pushing back at Jonah Hill’s directorial debut Mid90s. I haven’t seen it but it was met with rapt applause by male critics at TIFFs — but female critics seemed less impressed.

Steve Carell suddenly looks like a thirst trap and everyone’s confused.

-Survivor is now open to contestants from Canada, in case any of you are interested and/or crazy.

-The only things I know about these characters are from silly CW superhero shows, but I’m very here for Jurnee Smollett-Bell to play Black Canary and and Mary Elizabeth Winstead to play The Huntress in the Birds of Prey movie.

-The Tea with the Dames trailer is hella cute.

-Oh wow, the trailer for Creed 2 looks so, so good!

 

Leighton Meester Is Not Interested in a Gossip Girl Reunion

Leighton Meester Gossip Girl

-I’m here for Leighton Meester gushing about hubby Adam Brody. I’m even more here for her gently shading her Gossip Girl experience: “I’m not haunted by that time, but it’s been interesting and helpful for me to look at it and examine it as an adult and go, ‘I don’t know if it was the healthiest environment.'”

Joe Alwyn has no interest in talking about his relationship with Taylor Swift. He says in a new interview, “I understand people’s curiosity in the world we live in, about people’s private lives. Well, I don’t understand it, but I know it exists. For me, I just don’t feel it’s something I want to offer up to be picked apart by people who don’t know about it, and it’s just not theirs to have.”

Millie Bobby Brown is defending her text relationship with Drake, because it’s totally not weird for a 31-year-old dude to text a preteen.

-Here’s our first look at Joaquin Phoenix in Joker makeup. It’s suitably terrifying.

Robert Pattinson and Suki Waterhouse: still boning.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson look just fine after a photo surfaced in which she may have been crying (or possibly just sneezing).

-I didn’t think I wanted a Men In Black spinoff. Then Chris Hemsworth posted this selfie from the set with Tessa Thompson, and now I NEED it!

Keira Knightley says she can’t wait to see drag queens dress up like her from The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, which is a pretty great goal.

Kevin Hart freaked the eff out on the Tonight Show when as Robert Irwin, 14-year-old son of Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, brought out some snakes, a bird and a tarantula. “I got so much sweat drippin’ down my ass right now!”

-I actually believe that Gina Rodriguez can do 1,000 pushups. I’ve seen her Insta stories about doing chin ups in her trailer and she’s a beast!

-The first Venom clip shows Eddie Brock being a terrible journalist.
