Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Are Engaged

-The summer of quickie celebrity weddings continues! Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are reportedly engaged after just two months of dating. And he apparently closed down Tiffany’s to get her engagement ring like he’s goddamn Patrick Dempsey or something…

-A new Ronan Farrow exposé is coming later today, and it’s set to be a biggie. CBS CEO Leslie Moonves, one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, is being accused of sexual misconduct. While THR suggests the investigation alleges unwanted kissing and touching, Farrow suggested the claims in the full story may be more explosive, tweeting: “A quick reminder that I don’t comment on reporting I haven’t published, and if you’re reading about my work from secondary sources you’re often not getting the full or correct story—especially in cases where parties have an interest in downplaying or otherwise spinning.”

Anna Wintour’s final Vogue cover will reportedly be Beyoncé, which is a pretty great way to bow out.

Roseanne Barr doubled down on her race excuse in her Hannity interview. Sigh.

-Today’s Star Wars: Episode IX cast announcement revealed that Mark Hamill would be back (did anyone doubt it?) confirms Billy Dee Williams’ return, added Richard E. Grant and Naomi Ackie to the cast, and most surprisingly, announced that it will use unreleased Carrie Fisher footage. They also didn’t mention Keri Russell, but she’s still involved.

-Los Angeles County prosecutors have concluded there is insufficient evidence to charge Gossip Girl Ed Westwick with rape stemming from those earlier allegations from three women.

Britney Spears serenaded Jimmy Fallon with “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman” in a new episode of Ew!  She looks really, really good.

Sarah Jessica Parker sat down to chat with Gwyneth Paltrow on her podcast, in which they talked about marriage and Cynthia Nixon running for governor.

-I’m here for Ira writing a Neflix show!

-It was a good week for white actresses to be woke on Instagram. Anne Hathaway posted an impassioned response to Nia Wilson‘s murder on Wednesday (“We must ask our (white)selves- how “decent” are we really? Not in our intent, but in our actions? In our lack of action?”), and Minka Kelly defended costar Anna Diop, who left Instagram due to racists.

-The new season of Orange Is The New Black dropped today to mixed reviews.

-BBC Radio 1 canceled an interview with Logan Paul, saying it “didn’t meet our standards.” I’ve actually unfollowed Chloe Bennet on Insta because her stories are all about him cuddling her dog, and I just can’t.

-I love that everyone is pointing out that Amy Adams’ character on Sharp Objects is the worst reporter ever.

-I’m feeling Jennifer Garner‘s opinion of camping in the trailer for her upcoming HBO comedy.

Tom Cruise made James Corden jump out of a plane and this entire video is amazing. Look, if you need to skydive in order to goose your talk show’s ratings, you couldn’t ask for a better cheerleader than Cruise.


Zendaya Covers InStyle


Zendaya looks amazing on the cover of Instyle. Is there nothing she can’t pull off? (Oh wait, I just saw the horse dress. Never mind.)

Chance The Rapper is very good at Twitter.

Kate Hudson declared her love for music producer Danny Fujikawa in an Instagram post.

Ben Affleck reportedly rented an Upper West Side apartment for Lindsay Shookus that costs $28,000 a month. But isn’t she an SNL producer? Couldn’t she rent her own apt?

-This article about how Meghan Markle is everything Ivanka Trump wishes she could be is just perfect. *chef’s fingers kiss*

Selena Gomez is the most followed person on Instagram — and she just switched her account to private.

-God bless Vulture for diving deep into an investigation on the muscular Korean guy spotted with Lindsay Lohan.

Beyonce and Jay-Z are just messing with us at this point.

-Filming was suspended on Blake Lively‘s new movie after she hurt her hand.

-Every year, IndieWire’s David Ehrlich does a 13-minute montage of the year’s 25 best movies. I missed so many!

-God bless John Oliver for grilling Dustin Hoffman over sexual harassment allegations and refusing to back down. When Hoffman starting to say “Well, there’s a point in her not bringing it up for 40 years” I actually yelled “NOPE!!” out loud. (Oliver’s reaction of “Oh, Dustin” and putting his head in his hands was probably better.)

-Also, according to Terry Crews, Hoffman’s agent is Adam Venit, who Crews accused of groping him.

-Meanwhile, this is a great piece on the utter failure of male apologies this year.

Gabriel Byrne says that Kevin Spacey‘s behavior shut down the Usual Suspects filming for 2 days. “It was only years later that we began to understand that [filming] was closed down for a particular reason and that was because of inappropriate sexual behavior by Spacey.”

More allegations have come out against Prison Break/iZombie actor Robert Knepper. They’re awful. He denied all allegations, adding “Until I can sit down and have a dialogue with my accusers, managed not by the press but by an impartial mediator, I have nothing further to say on this matter.” How about a judge? Would a judge work?

-Netflix FINALLY cuts ties with Danny Masterson amid rape allegations. He’ll be written out of The Ranch. He released a statement about it, proclaiming his innocence.

-Despite not being super impressed with his behaviour at TIFF, I was starting to root for Armie Hammer. And then he had to go and Milkshake Duck himself by saying the only reason he wouldn’t work with Roman Polanski is because “there’s going to be drama” and that judging what he’s done is “a gray area.”

-It feels like something big is about to break with Bryan Singer, no? His production company is vacating the Fox lot after his firing. Meanwhile, he says he was fired from the Freddie Mercury biopic because he was taking care of an ill parent.

-I recommend reading this Daily Beast interview with the guy who runs the blind-item site Crazy Days and Nights. He had blinds about Weinstein, Spacey, and Lauer for years.

-I didn’t ship them on the show, but Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton and Natalia Dyer are a pretty darn cute couple IRL.

-This sweet Mark Hamill story might be my fave celeb story I’ve read in a while.

-I’m really glad I’m not the only one who still isn’t over the fact that the CW crossover turned all our heroes into Nazis. NAZIS!

-Here’s the international trailer for The Last Jedi.

Was T-Pain’s Engagement News About Robert Pattinson and FKA Twig a April Fool’s Joke?

-Hooo boy. According to T-PainRobert Pattinson and FKA Twigs are engaged (though he now claims it was an April Fool’s joke). A ton of media outlets ran with the story. Cue the tears and rending of garments until an official denial lands…

-I love how happy and fresh Lupita Nyong’o looks in Harper’s Bazaar UK.

-Speaking of good covers, Hailee Steinfeld is lovely on the latest Flare (where she’s sporting an Apple Watch).

-This is brilliance wrapped in perfection and kissed by wonderful: “If Idris Elba Were Your Boyfriend.

Johnny Depp and Ryan Adams are maybe sleeping with a pair of sisters, so that’s lovely.

-The music composer on Kimmy Schmidt talks about “Peeno Noir,” which has been stuck in my head on a loop for a week. (“You’re a star, listen to Tom Berenger, Peeeeennnnnooooooo Noirrrrrr!”)

-Wait, celebrities get paid to give commencement speeches?!? Matthew McConaughey will make $135,000 for a speech at University of Houston (he’s giving it to charity, though).

January Jones is reportedly dating her Last Man on Earth costar Will Forte. I still haven’t watched that show yet, but seeing how every TV critic I follow has totally turned against it in the last few weeks, I don’t think I’m missing much.

-I tend to hate April Fool’s jokes, but Funny or Die’s “Dips” app (a platform that gives users exactly 1.5 seconds to make a video), was pretty funny. Predictably, Jennifer Lawrence’s video was the best. Britney Spears and Billy Zane deserve shout-outs too.

-I was really hoping the news that Stephen Amell was just cast in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 was a joke. He can do better, no? Apparently a bunch of actors auditioned last weekend but it was his chemistry test with Megan Fox that got him the role. Not surprising, he has chemistry with everyone — except, you know, the actress he’s supposed to.

-Now this is an Amell appearance I’d actually want to see: he tweeted that he wants to throw the first pitch at a Toronto Blue Jays game this summer, and the Jays are in.

Adam Scott geeking out over getting tweeted at by Mark Hamill during last night’s The Flash is so cute.

-Speaking of The Flash, the promo that aired after last night’s episode totally ended up spoiling Arrow. (Look at Oliver’s costume. Come on, guys.)

-I’m going to miss Mad Men, but I’m REALLY going to miss Vincent Kartheiser giving bonkers interviews about Mad Men.

-Sometimes I think Patton Oswalt has too much time on his hands.

David Duchovny talked about The X Files’ return on Letterman last night, and confirmed the Cigarette-Smoking Man and Skinner are coming back.

-This is sad: Avril Lavigne says she has lyme disease and it left her bed-ridden for five months.

-God bless the Fug Girls for screencapping The Good Wife’s sexy emails from Will and tearing them apart. Because I spent a lot of the last episode pausing my TV and yelling “oh hells no!”

-I didn’t love how The Walking Dead wrapped up their season, but Nathan Fillion’s love letter to the show is full of geeky goodness.

-It’s a little inside baseball, but the CAA vs UTA thing that’s going down in Hollywood this week fascinates me.

Major Lazer is doing a cartoon series?! When I told my brother this he responded: “Everyone has to throw their shirts in the air at the end of each episode! (But they just generally land in your living room so you can easily retrieve themafterward.)” Ha!

-Of course Harvey Weinstein‘s team is trashing his alleged victim. Of course they are.

-The new Orphan Black trailer is *intense*.

Ethan Hawke and Jimmy Fallon channelled Bob Dylan to sing lullabies last night.

-Happy Endings creator David Caspe confirmed that the countdown clock was just a long-gestating April Fool’s joke perpetrated by the person running @happywrites, but he’s not totally ruling out a reunion.

Jack Black and James Marsden reunite for a high school reunion in the new trailer for The D Train.

Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig make terrible bank robbers in the new trailer for Masterminds.
