-I adore Emma Stone’s Vogue cover. Even though it’s just a wig, she still makes me want to chop off all my hair.

-The accompanying interview is predictably adorable, which her sharing a story about how she played backup tambourine for Prince at an SNL afterparty, even though her foot was bleeding. I’m really looking forward to the La La Land promo tour.

Billy Bush has lawyered up with one of LA’s fiercest litigators. How can he possibly think he can come back from this?!

Justin Bieber’s new girlfriend is named Bronte Blampied. God, that’s almost as good as Belinda Blinked.

-Here’s Angela Bassett delivering an impromptu Shakespearean monologue like a GD boss.

-One of my favourite people I’ve ever interviewed is Nick Offerman, because you could throw the silliest question at that guy and he’d respond with the most thoughtful, lovely answer. I was reminded of that by this AV Club interview, whether he’s talking about fans over-simplifying Ron Swanson as a breakfast-loving, Scotch-drinking libertarian (“He was much more complex than that. He was a very outspoken feminist. He was a man of few words and people mistook that for a man of few colors”), or his sex life with Megan Mullaly (“Look, I’m 46, Megan’s 57, and we have a happy marriage. We get it on with each other and we feel very celebratory about that.”)

-This Stranger Things theory just broke my brain.

-THR published an article about how TV production is exploding in Vancouver: “If you’re a paparazzo, you should go to Vancouver because it’s where every television star is going to be running around and misbehaving.” Oh, THR. They already are. The CW casts seem to be single-handedly powering blind item sites these days.

– Netflix has a new comedy series called Friends from College and the cast is stellar: Cobie Smulders, Keegan Michael-Key, Nat Faxon and Fred Savage.

Halle Berry proves she’s the wrong mom to mess with in this Kidnap trailer.

Beyonce Just Gave An Actual Interview and It Was Awesome

beyonce-elle-ivy-park

Beyonce hasn’t given a sit down interview in three years, but she just made it worth the wait. In her new Elle cover story,  she discusses self-care, stands up for feminism (“I don’t understand the negative connotation of the word, or why it should exclude the opposite sex”), addresses the backlash to her “Formation” video (“If celebrating my roots and culture during Black History Month made anyone uncomfortable, those feelings were there long before a video and long before me”), and talks about being a business woman (“Power is making things happen w/out asking for permission.”) It all feels very controlled and rehearsed (maybe even emailed?), but that’s all part of why we love her.

Melissa McCarthy killed it during her lip sync battle against Jimmy Fallon. Her flying props beat his fake rollerskating.

Aaron Paul says three Breaking Bad fans crashed his wedding and he didn’t realize until he saw the photos later.

Charlize Theron actually had the audacity to complain in her GQ cover story that she’s too pretty to be cast in meaty parts. “How many roles are out there for the gorgeous, fucking, gown-wearing eight-foot model?”  Stahp!
Heather Matarazzo had the best reaction to Charlize.

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka celebrated their 12th anniversary together in Canada because we’re awesome and not passing ridiculously unbelievable laws.

-Oh look. The Walking Dead showrunners are lying to fans again. That’s swell.

-Woodworking extraordinaire Nick Offerman handcrafted a lovely end table for Stephen Colbert, making him the best guest ever.

Emilia Clarke wants Game of Thrones to end with “close-ups of all the boys’ penises.” The line forms behind me, sister.

Elizabeth Banks’ new site showcases female comedians and looks amazing.

-This is good news: Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien is on the mend.
