-This is a great deep dive into People, the magazine that revealed one of their writers was sexually assaulted by Trump, and has now put him on their new cover. My favourite quote in the feature comes from Lainey: “People appreciates that the minivan majority came out hard for Trump. So they’re doing what they do best: report from inside the assholes of celebrities.”

-Also, in this Twitter thread a People employee defends the cover. The ensuing conversation is interesting.

-Here is Michelle Obama‘s full Carpool Karaoke segment, and it’s glorious. She will always be the coolest First Lady in history.

-This Divergent news is HILARIOUS. The last movie flopped so badly that that Lionsgate has jettisoned the finale in favor of a TV movie. And there’s no guarantee that the original stars will sign on. (Why would they?) Let’s hope this is the final nail in the coffin of franchises who think they should stretch the final book across two movies.

Leonardo DiCaprio is being dragged into the growing Wolf of Wall Street money-laundering scandal. It tickles me that he’s only referred to as  “Hollywood Actor 1” in the suit.
