W’s Great Performances Covers

-A slew of stars posed for W’s Great Performances issues, and some covers were way zanier than others.

Jake Gyllenhaal is seemingly trolling Swifties in his photoshoot for W Magazine, where he sports a pair of red heart sunglasses that are almost identical to the ones Taylor Swift wore in her “22” music video. I love this level of pettiness.

-In his W profile, Adam Driver says he doesn’t attend wrap parties. “I haven’t been to a wrap party since Girls. I just want to get the character out of my system and go home.” What a bummer for the crew.

-Love is dead. Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet have announced their split.

-On the other side of the coin, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly got engaged. (I’m so curious about who was filming this. There are multiple angles in the video!) Also, is there a proposal uniform? His buddy Travis Barker wore a similar shirt. (This is my fave tweet about it.)

-Welp. The Queen has stripped Prince Andrew of his military affiliations and he will “no longer use the style ‘His Royal Highness’ in any official capacity.” The palace added in their brief statement that he will be defending himself in the sexual abuse case “as a private citizen.”

Kanye West was allegedly involved in a battery incident in Los Angeles. He was named as a suspect in a battery report (rumoured to involve him hitting a fan) taken by the LAPD’s Newton Division early on Thursday morning. TMZ has video of him yelling at someone, though its not clear who. He was not arrested and a rep has yet to comment.

-Before all that hubbub, he was with Julia Fox, Madonna and Floyd Mayweather at Delilah nightclub last night. There’s a really cringey video of them all listening to music.

-Meanwhile, Julia Fox addressed criticism about their relationship, denying that they’re only spending time together for attention.

Bob Saget‘s widow is expressing her gratitude for John Mayer and Jeff Ross, who picked up his car from LAX for her.

David Beckham packed wife Victoria Beckham‘s lunch with a note that said, “Enjoy lunch ***hole… Come home happier.” She posted it with the caption, “Even when I’m grumpy he looks after me.”

Halle Berry penned a tribute to Sidney Poitier: “I was a child who, like my parents’ interracial relationship, never quite fit in. In those years, it was rare to see Blacks in leading roles, much less have our narratives celebrated or even acknowledged.”

-I keep trying to avoid the Drake/hot sauce story but the memes are hilarious.

-Ohhhh, Nicole Kidman *should* host the Oscars.

-This is a great interview with Matilda Lawler, the 13-year-old who’s crushing it on Station Eleven.

-There’s been a lot of speculation about who will play fan favourite Nikolai in the second season of Shadow and Bone — and Patrick Gibson of The OA has landed the role. Other new cast members include Anna Leong Brophy as Tamar, Lewis Tan as Tolya, and The Witcher’s Jack Wolfe as Wylan. Everyone looks pretty much how I pictured them when reading the books (though the guy who plays Wylan looks like a child, but IMDB assures me he’s 26).

-The reviews for How I Met Your Father with Hilary Duff are very not good.

-A Degrassi revival series has been ordered by HBO Max.

Jean-Marc Vallée finished writing a film about Yoko Ono and John Lennon before his sudden death last month.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw moves into a haunted house in the trailer for The Girl Before.

Machine Gun Kelly Wooed Megan Fox by Saying “I Am Weed”

Megan-Fox-and-Machine-Gun-Kelly-British-GQ

Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox are on the new cover of British GQ Style, and it’s a LOT. The piece opens with them giving each other matching tattoos that say “the darkest fairytale,” delves into their first encounter (“I just remember this tall, blond, ghostly creature and I looked up and I was like, ‘You smell like weed.’ He looked down at me and he was like, ‘I am weed.’ Then, I swear to God, he disappeared like a ninja in a smoke bomb”), their first kiss (“She wouldn’t kiss me. We just put our lips right in front of each other and breathed each other’s breath and then she just left”), and touches on how it’s not all fun and games (“This is a very intense relationship. Our souls chose this to absolutely have to face our shadow selves; to face things about ourselves we didn’t want to have to know, that we tried to push away”).

Timothée Chalamet is on the cover of Time and says “One of my heroes — I can’t say who or he’d kick my ass — he put his arm around me the first night we met and gave me some advice: No hard drugs and no superhero movies.” It takes balls to look down on superhero movies when you’re in rehearsals for a musical prequel to Willy Wonka…

-In his Vanity Fair cover story, Dwayne Johnson talked more about his feud with Vin Diesel. He said wished he hadn’t posted about it on social media (“I don’t share things like that. And I take care of that kind of bulls—t away from the public. They don’t need to know that”) but he doesn’t regret it (“It caused a firestorm. Yet interestingly enough [it was] as if every single crew member found their way to me and either quietly thanked me or sent me a note”).

E. Alex Jung‘s profile on Kumail Nanjiani is very sweet and a little sad. “I know exactly what I weigh every day, and if I could change something, I would love to not have to think about that.”

-The original screenplay for Ben Affleck and Matt Damon‘s new film The Last Duel included a kiss between their characters, but Ridley Scott cut it. Boo!

-Meanwhile, people are LOVING Affleck’s performance.

-The rumours about Chris Evans and Selena Gomez seem to be made up, but that didn’t stop them from trending on Twitter this weekend.

-In a new BBC interview, George Clooney says he knew pre-politics Trump and described him as a “knucklehead” who “chased girls”.

-People have a lot of opinions about Tom Cruise’s face, but this just looks like the side effect of medication to me?

Tyga was arrested on felony domestic violence charges after turning himself in to the authorities. He’s been booked for domestic violence after his ex-girlfriend accused him of physical assault, and his bail has been set for $50,000.

-Netflix has suspended a trans employee who tweeted about Dave Chappelle‘s special (they say it’s because the employee tried to join an executive meeting, not because of the tweets), but it’s not a good look.

-Meanwhile, this is an interesting piece on why people are upset over the special.

Demi Lovato thinks the word “aliens” is derogatory to extraterrestrials and let’s maybe worry about the people on our own planet first, k?

-Something is coming to Netflix tomorrow from David Fincher. Could it be his new assassin movie The Killer, starring Michael Fassbender and Tilda Swinton? Or a peek at Mindhunter season 3?

Robert Downey Jr. is keeping hope alive for Iron Man 4, saying their in “the middle of negotiations.”

-At this point, it’s more fun to read recaps of The Morning Show than to watch the actual show.

Nick Mohammed (who plays Nate on Ted Lasso) posted a list of all the time his character showed his true colours, but I don’t agree with what he calls the “microagressions” against Nate in season 2. The character may see them as that, but they weren’t actually.

-Meanwhile, Juno Temple talked to Vanity Fair about her character’s fake Vanity Fair photoshoot.

-20 current and former staffers of The Wrap spoke out about “screaming outbursts” and “demeaning behavior” at the entertainment news site.

-Ohhh nelly, Jason Reitman‘s new Ghostbusters movie is getting mixed reviews. Variety says it’s “unnecessary but enjoyable,” AV Club calls it a “a dispiriting nostalgia exercise” with “maximum reverence and minimum comedy”, and The Guardian calls it “a damning summary of modern Hollywood’s default mode – a nostalgia object, drained of personality and fitted into a dully palatable mold, custom-made for a fandom that worships everything and respects nothing.”

Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette explain the rules of survival in the new Scream trailer.

Britney Spears Is Engaged

Britney Spears announced her engagement to longtime partner Sam Asghari this past weekend. Hilariously, Octavia Spencer commented “Make him sign a prenup.” Equally hilarious, Asghari then posted a story saying “Of course we’re getting an ironclad prenup to protect my jeep and shoe collection in case she dumps me one day.”

-The VMAs were wild last night. UFC champion Conor McGregor shoved Machine Gun Kelly on the red carpet because security tried to stop him from shaking MGK’s hand (you can see Megan Fox being ushered out of harm’s way), Normani and Lil Nas X ate their performances, Madonna showed off her butt, and everyone dressed like it was 2002.

This video of Ben Affleck interacting with fans is very cute (even though some of their comments are making me cringe. His laugh after that guy’s “Man, you got that girl back” and the other guy’s “You’re the real MVP” saves it, though).

-Here’s Beyonce and Jay-Z’s video ad for Tiffany’s, directed by Emmanuel Adjei. The company has also has pledged to donate scholarship funding to students pursuing degrees in creative fields at HBCUs.

Jeff Bridges revealed that his cancer is now in remission. He also says he endured a brutal battle with COVID-19 and spent five weeks in the hospital due to all his health issues. “We, (I) often want some other gift that life isn’t giving us. I mean, who would want to get cancer & COVID? Well… it turns out I would. I would, because I get to learn more about love, [and] learn things that I never would have if I never got it.”
