Emma Roberts Talks BFF and Book Clubs in Cosmo


-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.

-Also, I can’t stop staring at this photo of Michael Urie on the Met steps.

-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.

-I kind of love that Chris Evans is having the best box office moment of his life, and still went to his high school reunion.

The Stars Shine at the MET Gala

-I’m here for all the stars that brought it at the MET Gala last night. Yes, a lot of the looks were crazy but that’s the whole point. This isn’t the Golden Globes; this is an evening to celebrate avant-garde designer Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons and the theme was “Art Of The In-Between” so weird was good.  I especially appreciated the more crazy dresses after reading this Twitter thread about the mechanics of making them. My faves were Rihanna,  Blake Lively(!), and Tracee Ellis Ross. Also props to Celine Dion, who was clearly having the most fun. She pretended her shoe was a phone! God, I love her.

-Also, Sarah Paulson‘s reaction to seeing Madonna was perfectNicki Minaj also got her fangirl on over a bunch of celebs.

-Of course the Kardashian’s led the selfie rule break.

Hailee Steinfeld is not really dating Justin Bieber, in case you were worried.

Susan Sarandon blasted Debra Messing on WWHL for not being very informed? Sit down.

Liam Payne named his new baby Bear Payne. But wasn’t there some big 1D conspiracy theory about a gay bear? Is this a hint? What does it all mean?!?

-Man, it’s been a rough week for diverse, inclusive, female-led dramas. First Sweet/Vicious was cancelled, and now Pitch has been pitched.

-Yay! The writers strike has been averted.

-I kept waiting for Drew Barrymore to say something dumb about wine, but she acquits herself quite well.

-A tearful Jimmy Kimmel detailed his newborn son’s open heart surgery  during last night’s monologue and also slammed Trump’s health care plan, saying “No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life.”

-Jesus Christ. Apparently Johnny Depp no longer memorizes his lines, he has someone feed them to him via earpiece. Seriously, what’s it going to take for everyone to stop giving that guy a pass?

J.K. Rowling apologized for killing Snape. Uh, why? He stalked a woman who had no interest in him for years and tormented her child because it looked like the guy he lost her to.  I’m glad he got a redemption arc, but that character was trash.

The Big Sick trailer is here! This was Kumail Nanjiani‘s surprise hit of Sundance and I can’t wait to see it.

Kerry Washington Lands Her First Major Magazine Cover


Kerry Washington looks a-mah-zing on Elle. I can’t believe it took this long for a major fashion mag to give her a cover but it’s so good, it’s even making me forget all about those gloves she wore last night.

-During Kanye West‘s MET Gala performance, he defended Kim Kardashian against haters. It’s almost like he knew what we’d all be saying about her dress today.

-Speaking of MET attendees, Michelle Williams left the event hand-in-hand with NYC-based artist Dustin Yellin.

-Also, this gif of Jennifer Lawrence photo-bombing Sarah Jessica Parker will make you love her forever (even more). It’s almost as great as Joshua Jackson‘s photo-bomb of Anne Hathaway.

Rihanna said Nicole Richie‘s MET dress “makes me throw up” (in a good way, we think).

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn‘s night out at the MET Gala reportedly ended with him drunkenly falling on the stairs and her helping him up while “clenching her teeth.” Ah, the honeymoon period!

-According to a Reader’s Digest poll, Kristen Stewart is the “least trusted movie star in America,” because the Reese Witherspoon drama has taught the world nothing.

-In other odd news from British singers, Pete Doherty has a new houseguest: Macaulay Culkin.

-iTunes is currently streaming the new Vampire Weekend album. Get on it!

-Someday I’d like to type the words “Lauryn Hill” without the words “troubled singer” before it, but today won’t be that day. Trouble singer Lauryn Hill has been sentenced to three months in jail for failing to pay nearly $1M in taxes because she was “opposed to the system.”

-In other ‘singers in jail’ news, Ja Rule just got out after spending two years in the clink.

-Newlywed Keira Knightley might replace Anne Hathaway as the lead in the dark comedy Laggies.

-I don’t watch Criminal Minds, but I dig the fact that the show’s actresses are refusing to sign new contracts until they get salary parity with their male costars.

-The documentary about Rihanna‘s 777 tour aired on Fox last night, but there was surprisingly little footage of the press mutiny. Actually, that’s probably not surprising at all.

-The revolving door of leading men attached to Natalie Portman‘s upcoming western continues to turn. The latest actor to sign up: Ewan McGregor.

-If you’re a comic book geek, the outfit Emma Stone is wearing in the new photos from the Spider Man set might give away a huge spoiler. For the rest of us, it’s just a cute coat.

Aaron Paul bought the Breaking Bad crew customized whisky bottles as a wrap gift because he’s awesome wrapped in amazing.

-This is both unexpected and awesome: British comedy The IT Crowd is coming back for one more episode with the original cast.

Dr. Phil is suing Deadspin for posting clips from his interview with Manti Te’o before it had aired in some markets.

Bradley Cooper‘s new Häagen-Dazs commercial makes it seem like he shows up to fancy parties with a pint of ice cream, which totally makes me want to be his friend.

Grey’s Anatomy’s McSteamy just landed a new show. Too bad it’s on TNT.

-In other (better) casting news, Andrew Garfield has been tapped to star in Martin Scorsese‘s Silence.

Amanda Seyfried‘s new Givenchy commercial is beyond silly, which I guess makes it just like every other perfume ad.

-This might be the birthday hangover talking, but I’m actually intrigued by this trailer for Ender’s Game. Or maybe I’m just into Ben Kingsley with a face tattoo…
