Lil Nas X Adjusts to Sudden Superstardom

lil nas x time cover

Lil Nas X of “Old Town Road” fame is on the cover of Time magazine, where he reveals what prompted him to come out and how he’s dealing with his instant fame.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth‘s camps are out in full force, trying to push their sides of the story.

Lana Condor posted a pic from the set of the third To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before — before Netflix officially confirmed they’re making it. They did, however, announce that the second film will drop on Netflix in February. (That second book is *rough*, especially if you’re a fan of Peter Kavinsky. I’m worried.)

Cardi B interviewed Bernie Sanders for his YouTube channel. Look, I don’t roll with the Bernie Bros but I can watch Cardi waxing poetic about FDR’s New Deal forever.

-This dinner for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez featured pretty much every guest star who’s been on Desus and Mero show this season — and then some.

-I dig this Vanity Fair photo shoot with eight Emmy nominees: Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul), Margaret Qualley (Fosse/Verdon), Christina Applegate (Dead to Me), Jared Harris (Chernobyl), Don Cheadle (Black Monday), Eugene Levy (Schitt’s Creek), Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us), and Niecy Nash (When They See Us).

Drew Barrymore is getting a daytime talk show and I kind of love this as a next step for her.

-Four alleged victims are suing Danny Masterson and the church of Scientology for stalking and conspiracy to cover up sexual assaults. Meanwhile, Leah Remini is ending her A&E show with a two-hour special finale, airing August 26, that’ll focus allegations that Scientology policies have hindered members from reporting sexual assault and physical violence. THR reports the episode will feature interviews with two of the women who’ve accused Masterson of assault.

Abby Quinn has just been cast as the daughter in the Mad About You reboot, so I guess that’s still happening. (I just saw her in a movie last night with Michelle Williams and Julianne Moore, which was really bad but she was fine.)

-I always like this annual interview with TV network bosses about which show they regretted letting get away.

-For someone who has read Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice a ridiculous amount of times, I’ve somehow never got around to reading Jane Austen‘s unfinished book Sanditon. (But I did watch a web series adaptation! Does that count??) In any case, the trailer for Andrew Davies‘ adaptation is very much my shit.

-Here’s the trailer for Terrence Malick’s A Hidden Life starring Matthias Schoenaerts (and some other people, but I’m only here for MS).

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Split

-The big news of the weekend was that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are splitting after less than a year of marriage. The announcement came after came after Cyrus was photographed kissing Kaitlynn Carter, Brody Jenner’s ex, while on holiday in Italy.

Hemsworth was approached this morning by The Daily Mail Australia while out in Byron Bay. “You don’t understand what it’s like,” the actor told the outlet. “I don’t want to talk about it, mate.” 😢

-The Morning Show, Apple’s new show starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, released its first teaser. (It’ll be available via Apple TV but the cost still hasn’t been announced, which seems nuts since this streaming service is set to launch in like a month.)

Josh Kloss, the actor who played Katy Perry’s love interest in her 2010 “Teenage Dream” video (aka the best pop song of the last 10 years), shared a lengthy Instagram post detailing the alleged humiliation he suffered at the hands of the pop star. He said she was “cool and kind” in private but “cold as ice” whenever other people were around, and claims she once pants’d him in public.

Priyanka Chopra was at BeautyCon this past weekend and was asked about her previous tweet on the India–Pakistan conflict. Her response was not great, bob.

Kim Cattrall won’t stop talking about another Sex and the City movie — even if we wish she would. “It was a blessing in so many ways but after the second movie I’d had enough. I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t just replace me with another actress instead of wasting time bullying. No means no.”

Lady Gaga is donating school supplies to the communities of El Paso, Dayton, and Gilroy.

-The Teen Choice Awards always make me feel old, but last night’s was especially a doozy. So many YouTube stars I don’t care about!

Chris Evans tweet-flirting with Yvette Nicole Brown on her birthday is very cute.

Olivia Colman is my queen — and now she’s everyone’s. Netflix released the first look at the actress as Queen Elizabeth II in season three of The Crown, out Nov 17.

Sarah Silverman says she was recently fired from new movie after a photo of her in blackface from her show resurfaced. (She’s talked about it before, calling it her most “regrettable joke” back in 2015). “There’s a still of me on Twitter in blackface and it’s totally out of context and I tweeted it when Twitter was new and the people who followed me watched that show and it was from that show. Now it’s forever there and it looks…it’s totally racist out of context and I regret that.”

-Alanis Morissette‘s third child, Winter Mercy Morissette-Treadway, was born last week.

-Based on a Trump remark and some conservative faux-paranoia around a movie no one has even seen yet, Universal has cancelled The Hunt release. This makes no sense — not only have movies like The Purge franchise existed for years, if anything right-wingers should love a film about poor people rising up to defeat rich elites. What’s it gonna take for us to get Betty Gilpin: action star?!

-In happier news, The Farewell continues to be the lil’ movie that could. It has boosted its domestic haul to $10.2 million.

-Netflix dropped the first trailer for My Name Is Dolemite starring Eddie Murphy as comedy and rap pioneer Rudy Ray Moore.

 

Zendaya Answers Vogue’s 73 Questions

Zendaya covers the June 2019 issue of Vogue, which also means she gets the 73 questions treatment. I like that she restricted the whole thing to her backyard instead of the usual house tour, but is so charming that it doesn’t seem like she’s shutting you out in any way.

Zendaya is also on the cover of Paper, where she says she has no desire to give up her music career for acting.

-I literally couldn’t contemplate winning a lunch with George and Amal Clooney. I think I’d have to study international affairs for six months to feel remotely qualified to open my mouth around them, and the whole thing would stress me out. But the video of George talking about it is super cute.

-This is awful: Miley Cyrus was trying to leave her hotel with Liam Hemsworth after a festival appearance in Barcelona and as she was fighting her way through the crowds to their car a dude grabbed her and tried to kiss her.

Tiffany Haddish says she’s retiring her white Alexander McQueen gown after wearing it to five events. I’m gonna miss it.

Kevin Spacey made a surprise appearance at his groping case hearing today.

-I liked Netflix’s Always Be My Maybe, but the very best parts involved Keanu Reeves. This intro scene is already so iconic that there’s already a Twitter account devoted to putting different songs behind it.

-Meanwhile, Keanu is reportedly in talks to join Angelina Jolie in Marvel’s The Eternals.

-It’s cute that Marc Anthony seems to get along so well with JLo and ARod.

-Don’t look to Joshua Jackson to start beating the Dawson’s Creek reunion drum. He said: “I had a great time. Mostly. I had a good time. 19 to 24, everything’s difficult, you’re all mixed up, you don’t know your place in the world yet. I would not go back there, no.”

-Congrats to Jay Z, who just became hip hop’s first billionaire.

-One of my fave TV writers @tvoti just came out as trans and wrote about it in relation to The Handsmaid’s Tale and it’s extremely powerful stuff.

-I gave up on it because of too much TV + little interest in watching any TV lately, but I dig this justification for why Whiskey Cavalier deserved a second season.

-I did force myself to start Good Omens this weekend because I adored the book — and it turns out the show is equally fantastic. The clincher for me was episode 3’s cold open, which only came together because Neil Gaiman realized he needed to give David Tennant and Michael Sheen more to do. It shows the two mains meeting at various major events in history, including Noah’s Ark, Jesus’ crucifixion, the first showing of Hamlet in the Globe, the French Revolution, WWII and more. Gaiman said: “When I got to Episode 3, I went, ‘Oh, Crowley and Aziraphale aren’t in this 50-page chunk,’ so I thought, ‘Well, I’ll do a mini-movie of Crowley and Aziraphale through time, and it will give Michael and David something to do.'”

-Also as I was watching it I saw someone tweet “Oh, this is a love story!” and it totally changed how I saw the show. Michael Sheen agrees.

-There is a very real possibility that for the first time ever, there will not be a single comedy from ABC, CBS, NBC or FOX among the best comedy series Emmy nominees.

-On the slim chance that you’re not totally done hearing about Game of Thrones, this is a very good video explaining how foreshadowing shouldn’t be misconstrued as character development when it came to Daenerys.

-Apple TV still hasn’t revealed when its streaming service is coming or how much it will cost, but they did drop their first trailer today. It’s for Ron Moore‘s alt-history space race series For All Mankind.

-I went to a movie this weekend and the Lion King trailer played before it, and I was like “how could they not use Beyonce‘s voice in this?!?” But today’s new trailer rectifies that, with her Nala character finally making an appearance.

Christian Bale and Matt Damon burn rubber in the First Ford v. Ferrari trailer.
