Alanis Morissette Talks Pregnancies and Postpartum

Alanis Morissette Self

-I’ve been following Nicole Cliffe on Twitter for a while because she’s hilarious, and it turns out she’s also a pretty amazing feature writer. Her first big profile is Self’s digital cover with Alanis Morissette, and the result is a really frank, emotionally honest chat that delves deep into the singer’s pregnancies, labors and postpartum episodes. Morissette also talks about how her husband uses the concept of “provisioning” as a way of detaching money/breadwinning from providing for the family, and how her past traumas have informed her parenting strategy (“I talk about this with my kids a lot, the four boundaries being: You can’t tell me what I’m thinking; you can’t tell me what I’m feeling; you can’t f*cking touch my body/you can’t do anything with my body; and don’t touch my stuff”). Definitely worth your time.

-Speaking of cover stories that are worth your time, Janelle Monáe talks about trans rights in her new Paper interview.

-Another great profile is this one on Sienna Miller, who talks about the obstacles she faced early in her career and how the NYT did her dirty by referring to Jude Law as a “fling” and listing her alleged sexual conquests in a profile — but when they profiled Law they called her a “three-year relationship and engagement.”

-Is this Jeremy Renner tweet a joke? Because if he was really trying to transition into music, he would surely hire a professional to make a better video teaser than this. Right?!?

Leonardo DiCaprio got hit in the face with a volleyball and Twitter came through with the jokes.

Mindy Kaling‘s Late Night underperformed at the box office. Between this, The Long Shot and Book Smart, what a disappointing summer for smart, female-focused films.

Cardi B gets as naked as you can appear in a video without getting banned from YouTube in her “Press” clip.

-Everyone is freaking out about The Office leaving Netflix, and how they won’t be able to stream it. Am I so old that if I love a show THAT much, I just buy the DVD boxset and not worry about never having access to it? I bought a season of TV last month that I will probably never take out of the shrink wrap, but I just feel better *knowing* I can. It’s also very strange that The Office and Friends have reached mythical legend status just because of their Netflix popularity with the young ‘uns. I would love for Netflix to someday give that sort of boost to less mainstream sitcoms like Happy Endings or Better Off Ted.

Britney Spears‘ dad is allegedly suing a blogger for perpetuating the #FreeBritney conspiracy theory.

-This is sad: Dog the Bounty Hunter star Beth Chapman has died of cancer at 51.

-The Game of Thrones cast looks horrified when confronted with footage of their younger selves in the first season.

-In his anniversary post to Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban calls her “baby girl.” I read a book last week that I almost didn’t finish for no other reason than the protagonist’s boyfriend kept calling her that and I couldn’t deal with it because it came across as so infantilizing.

This article on the making of Mad Men’s “not great Bob” meme is a treat, with Vincent Kartheiser providing the perfect kicker. (Sidenote: I was once an extra in a movie he was in. He was…something.)

-Orange is the New Black’s final teaser sees Piper adjusting to life outside prison.

Emma Watson is reportedly dating Alicia Keys’ brother(who is v. cute!).

-In other couple news, Leonardo DiCaprio, 44, invited his 21-year-old girlfriend to Cannes. And he’s reportedly known her since she was a child. Not creepy at all.

Harvey Weinstein is still awaiting his criminal trial and faces life in prison if convicted. In the meantime, he reached a $44 million settlement, $30m of which will be divided among his victims. (It’ll be paid out by Weinstein Co. insurance.)

-Celebrity chef Mario Batali will be arraigned on a criminal assault charge in Boston Municipal Court.

Cardi B is denying rumours she’s getting her own TV show, which sucks because a show about her drinking while interviewing celebs sounded great!

-If, like me, this week was a straight up garbage fire for you, then feel free to cleanse your palate with this hilarious blooper reel from The Good Place.

Michael Fassbender is an ’80s sitcom theme song expert. Who knew?

Seth Rogen Talks Kanye and Kids in GQ

-I love how everyone’s freaking out about how good Seth Rogen looks in his new GQ spread. He talks about Kanye West’s influence on him and why he and his wife don’t have kids. “We very much like our lives, so we will continue to put it off, it seems like, for a little while…I’ve had my friends be like, “Yeah, it really was hard on our relationship.” I’m not saying we couldn’t overcome it, but, again, we really get along and have a very good dynamic. She works very hard, and a lot as well, so when we’re together, we really try to enjoy each other and hang out.”

Rihanna’s NYT interview is a must-read: “I love being black. So, sorry for those who don’t like it.”

Celine Dion‘s episode of Carpool Karaoke aired and she was even more extra than we could have hoped for!

Johnny Depp accused ex-wife Amber Heard of having “painted-on bruises” to allege abuse, saying “She was the perpetrator, and I was the victim.” For crying out loud, her police reports had medical records in them!

Scarlett Johansson and SNL’s Colin Jost are engaged after two years of dating. This is going to be husband No. 3. (I always forget she was once married to Ryan Reynolds.)

-The Jonas Brothers are on the latest episode of Billy on the Street. “The measles are back and so are the Jonas Brothers!”

-In their new Esquire interview, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio talk about getting butterflies when meeting Luke Perry on the set of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and it’s very sweet.

-Also, I’m sure Brad and Leo like each other — but this clip of them on the Cannes red carpet makes it look like they really, really don’t.

-Also at Cannes, Nicolas Winding Refn said his new TV show isn’t actually a TV show.  “It’s a 13-hour movie. It’s not TV!” Sigh. If movie directors don’t respect TV, maybe they should not attempt TV?

Colin Firth came to Elle Fanning’s rescue when she fainted at a Cannes party, which is so very Mr. Darcy of him.

-This is a good explanation of Hulu/Disney/Comcast divorce. Basically, I’m expecting to look back at my cable bill as “the good ole days” when we’re all paying twice for all the streaming services we’ll end up getting.

-The endless Keanu Reeves love that has come out of the John Wick 3 promo tour has been such a treat. I especially love this video of him with puppies.  There’s also this great story of him making a teen theatre employee’s day. And of course, his Ellen interview where she questioned why he and Sandra Bullock never got together when they both admitted to crushing on each other at the same time, and he responded “We were working.

-I don’t watch The Big Bang Theory, but people are really upset by the Penny twist.

-It sucks that Mayim Bialik had to shut down an Instagram commenter who ogled her for wearing a t-shirt — but do you remember the time she wrote a NYT op-ed about how she escaped harassment in Hollywood by not dressing provocatively?

-On a new podcast, Julianna Margulies said she’s done ‘protecting CBS’ over the real reason she hasn’t gone on The Good Fight — because they wouldn’t pay her what she was making on The Good Wife. “I thought, Why am I protecting CBS? I said yes. They said no. And you know what? I need to pave the way for the next one coming up…I also know for a fact that any male star who is asked to come on a spin-off of their show would’ve been offered at least $500,000…If they were to ask me to go back on The Good Fight, paying me what my salary is, [I would be there] in a heartbeat.”

-People may have hated it, but Game of Thrones’s finale set HBO’s all-time ratings record.
