-Ohmygod Jeremy Renner just released a sludgerock power ballad and it’s…something. Definitely does *not* slap. What a gift to take us into the long weekend!

-I kind of love that the hottest pop star of the summer is a 17-year-old who refuses to be sexualized. Billie Eilish says she wears baggy clothes on purpose: “What I like about just dressing like I’m 800 sizes bigger than I am is it kind of gives nobody the opportunity to judge what your body looks like. I don’t want to give anyone the excuse of judging…I want layers and layers and layers. And I want to be mysterious. You don’t know what’s underneath, and you don’t know what’s on top.”

You’re Saying Rihanna’s Name Wrong

This video that Rihanna shot for British Vogue has everyone realizing that we’ve been pronouncing her name wrong all this time. She say “REE-anne-a” instead of “Ri-AHH-na”.

Meryl Streep doesn’t like the term “toxic masculinity,” saying: “We hurt our boys by calling something toxic masculinity. And I don’t find putting those two words together [works] because women can be pretty f***ng toxic. It’s toxic people.” Um Meryl, I love you to the moon and back, but “toxic masculinity” doesn’t mean that men are toxic. It’s referring to the very specific, very gendered behavior of incels and their ilk.

-Also, Streep asked to wear fake teeth in Big Little Lies to more resemble her on-screen son, Alexander Skarsgård.

-When asked about his love life while promoting John Wick 3, Keanu Reeves said “You mean romantic love? You know, I’m the lonely guy. I don’t have anyone in my life. But if it does occur, I would respect and love the other person; hopefully it’ll happen for me.” The line forms behind me.

-This is an interesting take on how fans feel like they were fooled by Morrisey because they mistook his far right views for just being a shy misfit.

-The reviews for the new season of The Handmaid’s Tale are good but not great.

Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Gwendoline Christie star in the Fabric trailer, which looks weird AF and I dig it.

The Kitchen trailer, starring Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss and Margo Martindale, features three women who join the Irish mafia while their husbands are in jail. It kind of looks like The Widows but is set in the 70s. I’m here for it!

Lizzo Talks Body Positivity and Authenticity

Lizzo Essence Magazine cover

Lizzo looks amazing on the cover of Essence! She talks about talks about embracing authenticity: “I made a decision to be myself because I knew I had no choice. Sometimes the label ‘unapologetic’ bothers me because it can be loaded, because it means we have to apologize for something in the first place. I’m not ignorant to the fact that we had to have a demeanor of lowering ourselves culturally just to exist. But I’m trying to shake up the narrative about how we’re supposed to act.”

Robert Pattinson has landed the lead Matt Reeves‘ The Batman. Twitter blew up in outrage over this last night, this makes sense to me.

-Ahead of this Sunday’s series finale, I really liked this roundup of female TV critics talking about how the show has failed its women this year.

-This saddens me: Busy Philipps bid a tearful goodbye to her E! talk show. “The most important lesson that we learned here is that it is a marathon, not a sprint, and the real trick is figuring out what the f*ck the marathon is that you’re actually running. And I have to tell you something: Guys, we haven’t even broken a sweat yet.”

-The Joker script sounds bad. Really bad.

Michael Fassbender and Peter Dinklage, I expect more than you than a Mel Gibson movie! Jamie Foxx…meh, you do you.
