-In her Cosmo cover story, Emma Roberts skirts questions about her split from Evan Peters (“I never want to talk about relationships I’m in or that are ending or have ended. It’s hard enough to be with someone by yourself, let alone with an audience”), instead preferring to talk about what books she’s currently reading. Fair enough.

Kumail Nanjiani is the latest celeb to appear on Gay of Thrones in an episode that is way more enjoyable than the one they’re recapping.

-Speaking of the last episode of Game of Thrones, Jessica Chastain blasted the show for that Sansa moment, tweeting: “Rape is not a tool to make a character stronger. A woman doesn’t need to be victimized in order to become a butterfly. The little bird was always a Phoenix. Her prevailing strength is solely because of her. And her alone.”

-Uh oh. Britney Spears’ mother believes her daughter is in such bad shape she’s requesting the court date over conservatorship be moved up to Wednesday.

-I spent a lot of time last night trying to figure out whether a Met Gala outfit was camp or not. Check out some of the most memorable outfits.

-After years of trying to keep their relationship under wraps, Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx made a rare public appearance at the Met Gala together.

-Every year the Met Gala has a “no selfies” rule, and every year celebrities break it.

-Yikes. When asked about the Michael Jackson doc Leaving Neverland, Madonna said “I don’t have a lynch-mob mentality, so in my mind, people are innocent until proven guilty.”

-In his newly released memoir, Common says he was molested as a child, and Laura Dern helped him process it on the set of The Tale.

-Some of Meghan Markle‘s family continue to be garbage people.

-This Tracy Morgan profile in the New Yorker is a trip. It seems like spending any amount of time with him would be both frustrating and fascinating.

George Clooney says he “hit the jackpot” with his wife and kids. Five years ago, I never would have thought that I’d be typing that sentence…

-Oh no. I was hoping Nicholas Brendon (Buffy’s Xander) had turned his life around recently, but he has been charged with felony domestic violence. He could face up to four years in prison if convicted.

-Get ready for soo many Avatars and Star Wars. Disney is now scheduling each franchise every other year, starting with Avatar 2 in 2021.

-Poor Channing Tatum. His passion project Gambit continues to remain in development hell.

Buckingham Palace Not Disputing Reports That Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Moving to Africa

-There was lots of gossip coming from the palace this long weekend, including talk that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will move to Africa after the baby is born, putting further distance between them and Will & Kate. The brothers were notably chilly during their Easter public appearance.

-Meanwhile, the palace released new photos of Prince Louis in celebration of his 1st birthday.

-A LOT of celebrities used the Easter long weekend as a news dump for split announcements: Michelle Williams split from hubby Phil Elverum after less than a year of marriage, Adele and husband Simon Konecki called it quits, and Pitch Perfect’s Anna Camp and Skylar Astin have split after two years of marriage.

Luke Perry‘s final Riverdale episode will air this week.

-It looks like Homecoming was just the beginning: Netflix has landed a three-project deal with Beyoncé worth a whopping $60 million.

-God, last night’s Game of Thrones was my favourite episode in years. The big battle episodes like next week’s is rumoured to be don’t mean anything unless they’re preceded by “people talking in rooms” episodes. And it featured a perfect scene between my favourite duo on the series: Jaime and Brienne. This article on why they’re the show’s best couple is spot on.

-Speaking of GoT, people need to stop talking about “fan service” if they don’t know what it means. It means when the writers suddenly introduce elements that haven’t been developed/don’t feel natural just to appease a segment of the audience (the term comes from anime, when they’d throw in sexy costumes and scenes just to keep dudes on the hook even if it didn’t make sense character-wise). Fan service is NOT anything that makes a certain group of fans happy. That’s called story development. Paying off our investment in the characters we’ve followed for a decade by allowing them to have conversations before they head into a giant battle that some won’t survive isn’t fan service; it’s good storytelling. This thread sums it up nicely.

-There was also a lot of backlash to Arya‘s choice last night, but I loved it for these reasons. It’s hilarious that the HBO twitter account confirmed her character is 18 before the episode aired. Also hilarious: Sophie Turner drunkenly posting about “pussayyyy.”

-During Age of Ultron junket, MTV’s Josh Horowitz made the cast guess each other’s biceps. He leveled up this press tour by adding butts and abs, and it was hilarious. “Do not tell him that I knew that was his butt!!” “I’m texting him right now…”

-How is SNL’s Micheal Che continually allowed to pull this crap on social media?!

-Coachella screwed up Lizzo‘s music for the second weekend in a row — but she pulled out a flute and made it work.
