Miley Cyrus Talks Marriage, Music in Vanity Fair

Miley Cyrus Liam Hemsworth Vanity Fair

-In her new Vanity Fair cover story, Miley Cyrus talks about her marriage to Liam Hemsworth (“I think the reason we got married isn’t old-fashioned — I actually think it’s kind of New Age. We’re redefining, to be f**king frank, what it looks like for someone that’s a queer person like myself to be in a hetero relationship”), reveals that she felt “anger, relief, sadness” when they lost their mansion to the Malibu wildfires last year, and says her new music will have more of a “hip-hop-leaning” vibe.

-It’s happening! R. Kelly has been charged in Chicago’s Cook County with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four people, at least three of them minors.

Jussie Smollett is being removed from the final episodes of Empire left to shoot after his arrest. Empire’s executive producers released a statement saying they “care about him deeply” but will keep him out of the show while the legal process plays out.  Meanwhile, police said that Smollett was unhappy with his salary, and that was why he did it but according to sources close to the show, Smollett never expressed dissatisfaction with his $100,000 per episode salary.

-The Vanity Fair Oscar party used to be the hottest bash of the year. What happened? According to the NYT: “The party has been stretched and stretched. It used to be a special insider event. Now it’s a weeklong corporate branding-palooza.”

-Today’s anonymous Oscar ballot piece has a tangent about banging Buzz Aldrin so there’s that.

-I very much enjoyed this oral history of Hugh Jackman’s opening number at 2009’s Oscars. I forgot how wonderful it was, and I had no idea that Dan Harmon and Ben Schwartz were behind it.

-Meanwhile, this is a great deep-dive ranking of every modern Oscar ceremony to determine what a watchable Oscars even is.

-Desus & Mero spoofed Green Book on their show’s premiere last night and it was great.

-The first trailer for Jordan Peele’s Twilight Zone features Adam Scott, John Cho, Greg Kinnear, Sanaa Lathan, Kumail Nanjiani, Alison Tolman, Jacob Tremblay and Steven Yeun.

Ariana Grande made nice with Piers Morgan and people are not into it.

-I find it so odd that Netflix plays the “we might cancel this” every year with One Day At A Time. I don’t watch it, but it regularly lands on critics’ best of the year lists and people love it. Why is it the only show they treat like this publicly?

Fleabag’s new season is already airing in the UK and critics are calling the first episode an actual masterpiece. I need it in my eyeballs!

-I really feel like I need to start watching The Magicians after the reaction from last night’s episode, which apparently turned a slash couple into canon? I feel like it’s one of those shows no one reviews (maybe because it’s genre and no one take that very seriously?), but every critic I follow tweets about how much they love it. This pop culture-referencing scene has already sold me on it.

-Speaking of shows I don’t watch but everyone I follow seems to love, the future of Wynonna Earp is in jeopardy as production seeks funding for season 4.

Ellen Pompeo dancing to Ariana Grande on the Grey’s Anatomy set is the cutest thing you’ll see today.

-During a pop-up show last night in New York City, Aziz Ansari finally addressed that Babe.net article, and he said all the things he should have said when he first resurfaced, including “It made me think about a lot, and I hope I’ve become a better person…If that has made not just me but other guys think about this, and just be more thoughtful and aware and willing to go that extra mile, and make sure someone else is comfortable in that moment, that’s a good thing.”

Drake asked the mayor to change the colour of the CN Tower lights to celebrate his Grammy win — so he did.

Brie Larson is doing her part to make sure the Captain Marvel press days are as inclusive as possible: “I started paying attention to what my press days looked like and the critics reviewing movies, and noticed it appeared to be overwhelmingly white male.” Not all superheroes wear capes — but this one does!

-Also, this video of her pushing a 5000lb Jeep makes me love her even more.

Michelle Rodriguez apologized for that weird comment about how Liam Neeson can’t be racist because he passionately kissed Viola Davis in Widows.

-Do you think this is just really bad timing on Ellen’s part, or has she stepped in it again?

George Clooney joked about being the godfather to Meghan and Harry’s baby and now that’s all I want.

-Oh god, now Frasier may be coming back.

-I somehow missed Lady Gaga shading Ryan Seacrest’s interview skills on the Grammys red carpet, but it was glorious.

-This sneak peek at Catastrophe’s final season is so good. “Medically, you’re saying if you took a normal-sized mannequin and filled it with meatballs and margarine, that’d be me?”

Liam Hemsworth couldn’t make it to the premiere of his new movie Isn’t It Romantic because he was briefly hospitalized over the weekend, but new wife Miley Cyrus had his back.

-Speaking of new Hulu shows, everyone’s trying to get out of WWII in the first trailer for Catch-22, Hulu’s limited series starring George Clooney and Kyle Chandler.

Cardi B Covers Harper’s Bazaar

Cardi B Offset Harpers Bazaar

Cardi B is coming in hot with her Harper’s Bazaar photo spread, which is by far the best editorial of the year so far. (I love that she got in a fight with Nicki Minaj at Harper’s Fashion Week party, and not only did she still land their cover, the photos actually reference it.) In the interview, she talks about working on her marriage to Offset (“Nobody makes my decisions about my life but me. I didn’t want to go to marriage counseling. He suggested it, but it’s like, ‘I don’t want to go.’ There’s no counselor or nothing that could make me change my mind”), postpartum depression (“When I gave birth, the doctor told me about postpartum, and I was like, ‘Well, I’m doing good right now, I don’t think that’s going to happen.’ But out of nowhere, the world was heavy on my shoulders”), and re-prioritizing (“Now I don’t feel like I have the time to please people. I don’t care about anything anymore—just my career and my kid. Well, I care about my career because of my money”).

Ellen Page going after Chris Pratt is a mood! (At what point can we just drop Pratt from all those “who’s the best Chris” discussions? Messina is ready to swap in!)

-Congrats to Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley, who got married.

-Man, EW’s romcom issue is just the gift that keeps on giving. Today they posted a piece with Katherine Heigl, James Marsden, Malin Akerman, and Ed Burns reminiscing about 27 Dresses (a film that holds up surprisingly well).

Ariana Grande had a busy day! She just dropped a new (possibly queerbaiting?) music video, and a new album that’s getting rave reviews.

-The Grammys are gonna be a mess. Not only is Ariana bailing, Drake, Childish Gambino and Kendrick Lamar all declined invitations to perform too.

Danai Gurira is leaving The Walking Dead. She’s the only good thing the show still has going for it and if AMC didn’t feel the need to throw bags of money her way to make her stay, it’s their loss.

-Meanwhile, Norman Reedus may not be working with Andrew Lincoln any more, but he hasn’t stopped pranking him.

-There’s a new Soderbergh movie on Netflix today starring André Holland and Zazie Beetz called High Flying Bird, and critics really dig it.

-Leaving Neverland, that Michael Jackson documentary that had Sundance buzzing, is coming to HBO in March.

-In other HBO news, Barry and Veep will premiere in March, while Big Little Lies’ second season is landing in June.

Miley Cyrus is now officially going by Miley Hemsworth.

Juliett Binoche‘s comments on Harvey Weinstein are super disappointing. Goddammit, I just sat through Let The Sunshine In for her!

-Ugh, Casey Affleck exhausts me.

-Former CW lead Chad Michael Murray playing a supporting character on Riverdale really is karma at work.

-Good on Jeff Bezos (words I never thought I’d say) for exposing the National Enquirer’s attempts to blackmail him using nude photos, but female celebrities did it first.

Samuel L. Jackson and Jessie Usher make a badass father and son pair in the Shaft reboot.
