Demi Lovato “Stable” Following Reported Overdose

demi-lovato-cosmo

-I’m so glad to hear that Demi Lovato is “stable” following her reported OD. (Initial reports said heroin, but sources close to her insist it wasn’t that. She was treated with Narcan, which apparently one of her friends had on hand, which is used in overdoses of heroin, oxy, and other narcotics.) She’s reportedly awake and recovering. I’m rooting for that girl. She’s always been admirably candid and transparent about her struggles.

Beyoncé’s team is reportedly in the middle of negotiations to debut her next visual album on Netflix. Not Tidal? Hmmmm…

-TIFF’s announced its first round of films. I love that they got The Hate U Give and Widows as world premieres, as well as Timothee Chalamet and Steve Carell‘s Beautiful Boy and This is Us creator Dan Fogelman‘s Life Itself. (There will also be an interesting rematch: TIFF will premiere new films from both Damien Chazelle and Barry Jenkins, who were neck-and-neck last year with La La Land and Moonlight).

Karlie Kloss is engaged to Joshua Kushner. But how is she going to marry Taylor Swift now?!

-Yet another TV critic has turned TV creator: TVLine’s Michael Ausiello is making an 80s dramedy based on his childhood.

-Community’s Dan Harmon may have been one of the first male celebs to get caught in #MeToo, but it’s an old Adult Swim video that might really hurt him. The Rick and Morty co-creator made a parody pilot of Showtime’s Dexter in 2009 that featured Harmon’s character traveling back in time to stop serial killers by sexually assaulting them when they were infants. And yeah, that’s pretty damn offensive. But Harmon is the only guy in the Me Too movement so far to give a decent apology and actually seem like he’s actively trying to change. Another wrinkle: much like James Gunn, this offensive stuff resurfaced thanks to 4chan and far-right subreddits. In recent days, this same types have also gone after Michael Ian Black, Trevor Noah and Patton Oswalt.

-This is a great piece about how black women have been calling out R. Kelly for years and nobody listened.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, Michelle Williams and Sam Rockwell are teaming up for a Fosse-Verdon series at FX. I like all of those words!!

ATX’s Felicity reunion is now available to watch IN FULL on YouTube. There goes my next hour…

-On Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast (which I’m finding oddly endearing), Mila Kunis says she did something bad to end her eight-year relationship with Macaulay Culkin. “I f**ked up. I was an asshole in my 20s and I’ll be the first to admit it. And that’s something that took me a long time to come out and be like, ‘Yeah, you know what, I was a dick,’ and accept it and I own it. And it’s f**ked up what I did. It’s f**ked up what I did, and it’s f**ked up how I did it.” She didn’t expand on what exactly she did, though.

-This might be the most surprising split of the summer: Girls duo Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner have parted ways as producing partners. Sources tell THR they’re in talks for individual overall deals with HBO.

-After a rough same-day premiere, Sacha Baron Cohen’s Who Is America?’s series debut has doubled its audience after seven days. Per Showtime, most of the added viewing came via on demand and streaming. But I’m still not entirely sure who this show is aimed at. Like, the people who would watch already know that his targets are dumb. Also, I hate that Cohen and his all-male writing staff thought that a “prank” against The Bachelor’s Corinne Olympios (who was the centre of the reality show’s sexual assault investigation) would be funny. It was not.

Alita: Battle Angel from James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez has its first trailer.

Kate McKinnon interviews costar Mila Kunis in the new issue of Cosmo, in which she talks about first reconnecting with Ashton Kutcher over social media, and how  her family sometimes believes tabloid stories about her.

-The idea of Justin Timberlake begging Drake to do a collab tickles me more than it probably should.

-At a backyard party on the Fourth of July, Chance The Rapper got down on one knee and asked his girlfriend, Kirsten Corley, to marry him. I’m gonna sound like my grandma right now, but he probably should have put a shirt on first.

Idris Elba  is in final talks to play the villain in the Fast and Furious spinoff starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham. This is already the best F&F movie ever made! (Somewhere, do you think Vin Diesel is weeping softly?)

-I’m digging season 2 of GLOW but yeah, this one thing is bothers me too (probably because in the first season it never even occurred to me that it could be their endgame).

This tweet compared Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas to New Girl’s Cece and Schmidt and now it’s all I can see.

-The photo of Jay Z wearing a helmet while riding a jet ski has gone viral because…well, have you seen it?

-The Beckhams presented a united front on their 19th anniversary. But no one seems particularly convinced though because we’re all cynical beshes.

Lupita Nyong’o and Kristen Stewart keep inching closer to that Charlie’s Angels reboot that Elizabeth Banks is directing, but nothing’s been confirmed.

-I like that Selena Gomez spent Independence Day with her Wizards of WaverlyPlace costar David Henrie. He seems like a good egg.

Julianna Margulies says she rejected an invite to guest on The Good Fight in season one because she “didn’t think that was fair” to the cast. “I felt like, ‘Get on your own two feet. Do your thing.’ Because if Alicia had come in, in the first season, it would have been [all] about Alicia and The Good Wife. And now it’s their show.” And now TGF has surpassed TGW in every possible way.

-July 4th means Blind Item reveal day on Crazy Days and Nights. I’m side-eyeing most of these, but this one is really nice.

-Rumoured couple Chris Pine and Peaky Blinders star Annabelle Wallis look very couple-y.

Sean Penn and Leonardo DiCaprio being friends makes so much sense to me.

Amy Adams’ HBO show Sharp Objects, which debuts Sunday, continues to get stellar reviews.

T.I. says that he confronted Kanye West about his Trump comments — and their five-hour conversation about politics turned into into a collab.

-You’d think Gillian Anderson would want to stay away from alien-themed pop culture, but here she is in the UFO trailer. I’m not complaining.

Taylor Swift Can’t Shake It Off

-Not surprising: Taylor Swift is dominating the conversation after the first single from Reputation dropped last night. Actually surprising: the conversation isn’t exactly going her way. Her label had to clarify that it’s a total coincidence that her album is being released on the anniversary of nemesis Kanye West’s mother’s death. The video sneak peak makes it look like Lemonade-lite. She’s somehow aligned herself with Right Said Fred. And then there’s the song itself. It’s … not good. Weirdly, I think I wouldn’t mind it if it appeared on Lorde‘s new album (also produced by Jack Antoff). But offbeat, deconstructed choruses and faux-edgy undertones aren’t what Taylor does best. It doesn’t help that she invites everyone to comb through her songs to find the disses (Kanye! Katy!), but the lyrics  just don’t hold up to scrutiny. And instead of truly embracing her snarky side like we all hoped, she’s once again reverted to playing the victim card.  (My favourite tweet about “Look What You Made Me Do” was “It’s like the song is blaming us for the song”).  The pile-on is so extreme today that I’m starting to get Anne Hathaway-ish sympathy feels for Taylor but  still, it’s a rare, giant misstep for her.

James Cameron says Wonder Woman praise is “misguided,” and called the character”an objectified icon” and “a step backwards.” I mean, we’re really supposed to care about what James Cameron thinks after he explained his approach to developing a strong female character in Avatar with such gems as “Right from the beginning I said, ‘She’s got to have tits,’ even though that makes no sense because her race, the Na’vi, aren’t placental mammals.”

-Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins‘ clapback was perfect.

-In her new Rolling Stone cover story, Gal Gadot points out how ridiculous it was to be criticized for not being curvy enough to play Wonder Woman. “I told them, ‘Listen, if you want to be for real, then the Amazons, they had only one boob. Exactly one boob. So what are you talking about here?'”

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher settled their lawsuit with Daily Mail over photos of their daughter.

-The HBO hackers are at it again. They leaked detailed plot outlines about how this weekend’s season finale will end.

-Fleabag is coming back for a second season. Not until 2019 but I don’t care. I NEEDED this news today!

-Also getting another season is Black Mirror. I didn’t even finish the last one, but a Star Trek parody starring Jesse Plemons intrigues me.

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are still a thing. I wonder when her divorce contract will expire and they can go public?

-This is a really excellent deep dive into how Late Night with Seth Meyers got so, so good. I especially like the part where he talked about diversity in his writing room: “I didn’t know the kinds of things a non-straight white man might bring to the table. The only way to find out was to bring them to the table.”

-Following his ex’s request for full custody of their two children, Jesse Williams is fighting back, insisting his work schedule won’t prevent him from caring for the kids.

-Look how cute the guys who play The Hound and Tormund are in this behind-the-scenes video.

Miley Cyrus is posing as a nude fairy on the cover of David LaChapelle’s new coffee table book.

Alicia Vikander has sexy times with an artist while married to Christoph Waltz in the trailer for period piece Tulip Fever.
