The Weeknd Talks Grammy Snub

the weeknd billboard

The Weeknd is still all up in his feels about his Grammy snub. Calling it “an attack,” he tells Billboard: “I use a sucker punch as an analogy. Because it just kind of hit me out of nowhere. I definitely felt … I felt things. I don’t know if it was sadness or anger. I think it was just confusion. I just wanted answers. Like, ‘What happened?'” He added that the three previous Grammy Awards he’s won “mean nothing” to him now.

Taylor Swift fans are feeling a little duped today: a rumour of new music turned out to be re-packaged previous releases.

Armie Hammer has exited the upcoming TV series The Offer, which tells the behind the scenes story of the making of The Godfather. This was a really buzzy project — one wonders if he’s just laying low because of what’s already being talked about, or if he’s bracing for more.

-Wow. Call Me By Your Name’s Luca Guadagnino and Timothée Chalamet are eyeing a reunion for the coming-of-age horror story Bones & All, which is — wait for it — a cannibal love story. I’m not joking.

-I don’t watch Snowpiercer, but this interview with Daveed Diggs is a delight!

Joshua Bassett released a new video, but posted on Instagram “hiiii, i wrote this song half a year ago, and this release has been scheduled for months!” — just in case you thought he was trying to wade in on the Olivia Rodrigo vs Sabrina Carpenter diss track drama.

Zendaya is defending the 12-year age gap between her and her Malcolm & Marie costar John David Washington: “People often forget — which is understandable because I’ve been playing 16 since I was 16, you know — [but] I am grown. I knew that, as I grow and as I evolve, there would be that moment where I could play someone my own age.”

Zendaya also let it slip that her Spider-Man 3 character will be “running from aliens.” Sigh. How has MCU not yet grasped that the beauty of the Spider-Man movies is that they’re about a high school kid dealing with neighborhood baddies. The smaller stakes is why Homecoming was so great.

-This is a very good piece on how the MCU has conditioned its audience not to accept change. There’s a great show to be had in WandaVision if the whole thing is a construct she’s created to cope with her grief, but I’d be surprised if it goes that way. And we barely got three episodes of “what the heck is going on?” weirdness before they’re feeling the need to shift into explaining.

Trevor Noah explained the GameStop stock drama as if he were a bubbly Margot Robbie in The Big Short.

-Netflix confirmed that Lupin’s remaining 5 episodes will debut this summer.

Their source claims they broke up because she wants kids and he wasn’t willing to commit to it.

-I’m not sure how amicable it all can be when Ben Affleck had de Armas’ life-size cardboard cutout tossed in the trash in full view of the paparazzi.

-Still, sources are claiming a reconciliation is entirely possible.

-Meanwhile, these are clearly breakup bangs.

Dua Lipa is sorry that her random emoji smashing made everyone think she’s pregnant.

Miley Cyrus overshared in a new interview, offering her opinion on penises: “It’s good if it can just get in and go away, because I don’t want it eyeing me up. That’s truly how I feel…Everyone knows that tits are prettier than balls.”

-All five seasons of the original Muppet Show is coming to Disney+, including two seasons that have never been released on home video.

-It’s kind of wild to me that Freaks and Geeks is going to air on Hulu with the show’s original soundtrack. That must have been an insane music licensing deal. I guess that’s one way for 80s bands to keep making money.

Anne Hathaway’s Backyard Red Carpet

Anne Hathaway might be missing out on a Locked Down premiere, but she’s not skipping the red carpet. She ate this photoshoot.

-Also, she says we’ve all been calling her the wrong name. “Call me Annie. Everybody, everybody, call me Annie. Please…The only person who ever calls me Anne is my mother, and she only does it when she’s really mad at me, like really mad. So every time I step out in public and someone calls my name, I think they’re going to yell at me.”

-Here we go. Page Six published an interview with Armie Hammer’s ex-girlfriend Courtney Vucekovich, who attests to him making cannibalism comments, but levels even more disturbing accusations of emotional abuse. “He quickly grooms you in the relationship. He kind of captivates you and while being charming, he’s grooming you for these things that are darker and heavier and consuming. When I say consuming, I mean mentally, physically, emotionally, financially, just everything.”

Bella Thorne commented on Florence Pugh‘s Instagram video and fans started dragging her, and Pugh was not having it.

Chris Evans is reportedly in talks with Marvel Studios to reprise his role as Captain America in the MCU. So nothing is ever allowed to end and no characters are ever allowed to die? Got it.

Miley Cyrus says she once climbed the Roosevelt Hotel sign naked after “a rager.” Who amongst us hasn’t?

-This video of Lana Condor and Noah Centineo reacting to their new To All The Boys trailer is adorable. A++ marketing.

Macaulay Culkin has joined the call to get the Trump cameo removed from Home Alone. Canada already did it.

-Musician Ariel Pink sounds like a swell guy. The week after he attended the insurrection at the Capitol, court documents are revealing that he’s being accused of sexual misconduct and physical abuse.

-Warner Bros spent the holidays trying to placate their top talent after abruptly announcing that all their 2021 movies would be streaming on HBO Max. Denzel Washington is said to be getting his $20 million plus backend fee  for The Little Things, while talent making less than $4 million will be paid an additional 25% upon the release of the film as an advance against box office bonuses.

Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke play longtime friends  in the trailer for Netflix’s  upcoming series Firefly Lane.

-The trailer for I Care A Lot has arrived. I saw this at TIFF and my immediate reaction wasn’t overwhelmingly positive because everyone – EVERYONE – in this movie is terrible and there’s no one to root for. But as soon as I leaned into it, it was pretty great. Also, no one has ever looked cooler vaping as Rosamund Pike does in this. It’s on Netflix in the US, but comes to Prime on Feb 19 in Canada.
