Adele Gives Good Face

2 images of Adele: one in a red blazer, and another in a black dress

-I adore this 80s-ish photoshoot with Adele for The Face. In the interview, she talked about her ex-husband, Simon Konecki and why she was so drawn to him. “I was like, ‘I’d be a f**king damn fool to walk away from this man being the father of my child compared to any other man that I encountered before or after up until recently, phew! I would’ve regretted that, forever.”

-Meanwhile, she told Apple Music that she isn’t making music for TikTok. “I’d rather cater to people who are on my level in terms of the amount of time we’ve spent on Earth and the things we’ve been through.”

-It’s happening. Sources tell E! News that Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are indeed dating after they were photographed holding hands in Palm Springs. “He makes her laugh the entire time they are together and she is completely enthralled by him.” (People are amused/scandalized that she’s wearing Yeezys in the photos.)

-In a new Hawkeye clip, Clint and Kate play with fire to take down the Tracksuit Mafia. Meanwhile, the NYT profiles Jeremy Renner, who somehow has two shows dropping at the same time: Hawkeye and Mayor of Kingstown.

-The Office’s Brian Baumgartner (who played Kevin) wrote a new book about the show, and in it John Krasinski talks about the only scene he pushed back on, which saw Jim make out with Pam’s replacement Cathy when Pam was on maternity leave. “That’s the only time I remember putting my foot down…I remember saying things that I never thought I’d say before, like, ‘I’m not going to shoot it.’ There is a threshold with which you can push our audience. They are so dedicated. We have shown such great respect to them. But there’s a moment where if you push them too far, they’ll never come back. And I think that if you show Jim cheating, they’ll never come back.”

-Speaking of The Office, Mindy Kaling was on Kelly Clarkson’s show and they tried her character Kelly Kapoor’s “disgusting” favourite cocktail.

FKA twigs sat down with CBS This Morning’s Gayle King for an exclusive interview about Shia LaBeouf‘s alleged abuse, airing in full on Thursday. In a preview, she says “He would often just start having an argument with me in the middle of the night, start accusing me of doing all sorts of things, planning to leave him in my head. He’d wake me up, tell me I was disgusting, that I was vile…I’d wake up and he’d be like, ‘You were lying there with your eyes open, planning to leave me.’ And I’d be like, ‘I literally was asleep.’ ”

-She’s also talks extensively about the alleged abuse in Elle, saying “It’s a miracle I came out alive.”

-Netflix landed Tim Burton‘s The Addams Family revival, which will be told from Wednesday Addams’ perspective.

Lupita Nyong’o Covers British Vogue

Lupita Nyong’o Covers British Vogue

Lupita Nyong’o’s first ever British Vogue cover is stunning. She talks about her decision to stay mum on her personal life (“Privacy is a commodity that is hard to come by”), what she looks for in a script (“I don’t get fulfillment from the number of zeros attached to a project. What I’m seduced by is the potential to shift a narrative. That is very seductive to me, having social and cultural impact”) and hanging out with costars (“Filming is so time-consuming. And intense. With Black Panther, a lot of us were single. On Little Monsters, nobody was single. Everyone, when they’re done with their day’s work, wants to go home to their families, which makes a whole lot of sense. When you don’t have that it’s very isolating”).

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and their 7-month-old reportedly flew to Toronto over the holidays to see friends, including Meghan’s BFF Jessica Mulroney. They later met up with Meghan’s mom in Victoria.

Shawn Mendes and Camilla Cabello also spent time in Toronto over the holidays (though she wasn’t spotted with him on NYE).

-Congrats to Michelle Williams, who is reportedly pregnant and engaged to Hamilton director Thomas Kail. They met on set while working on the FX show Fosse/Verdon, which Kail directed.

-Crazy Ex-Girlfriend creator/star Rachel Bloom, who is 7 months pregnant, got stranded on the side of the road with her husband in Bakersfield and tweeted that they were going to sleep in their car, so a couple invited them into their home.

-Tragic news: prolific television producer Jenji Kohan (creator of Orange Is The New Black and Weeds) is mourning the sudden death of her 20-year-old son, who died following a ski accident in Utah.

Beyoncé posted a black screen on Instagram 10 minutes before midnight on NYE, and the internet lost its poo, thinking it was another surprise album drop. The comments under the post were hilarious (my fave was “Bey MAAM, I’m poor, go to sleep”). But she quickly followed it up with a video retrospective of her highlights of the decade.

Megan Thee Stallion and Zendaya attended Beyoncé‘s NYE party.

-This is weird: eleven of the last 14 seasons of Survivor — including each of the last five — have been won by men.

Sharon Stone was blocked from the Bumble dating app — for impersonating Sharon Stone.

Busy Philips did an IG post about the shitty way she found out her E! show was being cancelled, and it included screenshots of the hilariously profane letter her daughter wrote to the network.

Florence Pugh, 23, does not seem to love it when people remind her that her BF Zach Braff is 44.

Jodie Turner Smith said the nude photo she posted on IG was “not a thirst trap” since her hubby, Joshua Jackson, took the pic. Works for me.

Whitney Houston‘s family continues to be plagued by tragedy. Nick Gordon, who dated Houston’s late daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, died Wednesday in Florida following a reported drug overdose.

-Bombshell is bombing at the box office. I saw it yesterday and I walked out with the same question as this person: “who exactly was that for?!”

-The performances were good though, especially Margot Robbie. Things are already looking up for her in 2020 — she’s confirmed that Jared Leto will not appear as Joker in Birds of Prey.

-In other Joker-related news, no one is doing more to make me feel better about not seeing Joker than its director, Todd Phillips. In a new interview, he claims the success of the Joaquin Phoenix-led film had nothing to do with the character’s connection to Batman.

-Also, the fact that Phillips packed the movie with homages to his hero Martin Scorsese — only to have Scorsese admit he hasn’t seen it — is amazing. (“I saw clips of it. I know it. So it’s like, why do I need to. I get it. It’s fine.”) The other amazing part of that Scorsese interview is when he basically says that he talked all that shit about Marvel movies in the press so that he could get a meeting with Disney’s Bob Iger about film preservation.

Kim Kardashian did NOT give her daughter the shirt John F. Kennedy was shot in as a Christmas present. Just in case you were worried about that.

-This is probably the review of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker that best captures how I felt about it.

-Meanwhile, a wild Reddit conspiracy theory about why the new Star Wars is so bad has made #ReleaseTheJJCut a trending topic. Look, big studios are always going to have notes and demand changes, for better or worse. That’s how blockbusters are made. That doesn’t mean Disney was trying to purposefully torpedo J.J. Abrams‘ reputation so his future WB/DC projects would tank. That’s ridiculous. (And also, Chris Terrio was hired to co-write Rise of Skywalker on the heels of two terrible Justice League movies and Batman V Superman, so the actual movie this conspiracy theory is about disproves the idea that one bad film could actually tank a white man’s Hollywood career).

-Not to mention the fact that of the five Disney-era Star Wars movies since 2015, only The Last Jedi didn’t have a production crisis.

-Speaking of Star Wars, now that he’s no longer under contract John Boyega has gone a little wild on social media. I don’t particularly love jokes about “laying the pipe” with Rey or when actors make fun of shippers, but it’s kind of fun to see him completely unleash.

-As of yesterday, Friends is no longer be available to stream in the U.S. on Netflix. I wonder if and how that’s going to affect this year’s subscription numbers.

-I binged the entire second season of You this holiday break. I’m happy with that decision.

-Here’s the new trailer for A Quiet Place 2. It’s still quiet, and still creepy.
