-Vogue shot artsy videos of the stars dancing around an exhibit room during the MET gala. The good ones are Rihanna, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, and Katy Perry. The very best one is Frances McDormand dancing to Basement Jaxx. She really did look like she was having the night of her life.
–Katy Perry flew Kim Kardashian’s press on nails to LA for the MET gala. That’s true friendship.
-At last night’s MET Gala, the theme was Catholicism and the outfits were nuts. I adored Lena Waithe in a giant rainbow cape, Zendaya‘s take on Joan of Arc, and Blake Lively‘s burgundy number. But no one made me happier than Chadwick Boseman with hair sparkles, and Frances McDormand in Valentino.
-I’m really bummed that Scarlett Johansson broke the A-lister embargo and wore Marchesa, despite the Weinstein connection. She says their dresses make women feel “confident.”
–Jay-Z, Eminem, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Aniston and more are demanding money from the Weinstein Company.
-Congrats to Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst, who had a baby boy.
-I don’t even watch Lethal Weapon, but what’s going on with that show is crazy. Clayne Crawford has been fired as the lead of the Fox drama as producers are scrambling to recast the role, and renewal is supposed to hinge on who they cast. Multiple actors have already passed, according to THR.
-The R. Kelly house continues to crumble before our eyes. Two new accusers appeared on Megyn Kelly Today to detail sexual the harrasment they faced: “You weren’t free to walk throughout the house…We were required to call him Daddy.”
-This makes my heart sad: Colton Haynes has filed for divorce from Jeff Leatham after just six months of marriage. Rumours started circulating this weekend after he released a new song about a cheater, and a blind item began circulating. Haynes shut down speculation that Leatham cheated on Twitter, but did not deny the split. Poor guy; he just lost his mother, too.
–Kristen Stewart is looking at Cate Blanchett exactly how I would.
-Here are all the references in the new Childish Gambino music video you probably missed. (I know I did.)
-I can’t stop watching this video of Mariah Carey putting makeup on a stranger.
-Why the hell did The Hollywood Reporter gives Jeffrey Tambor and his sexual harassment allegations a sympathetic, soft-focus profile? “I did raise my voice at times, I was moody at times, there were times when I was tactless…But as for the other stuff, absolutely not.”
-Meanwhile, the cast wants extra compensation for Netflix’s recut episodes.
-Cancel Bear (who is usually spot on about these things) posted his TV renewal predictions for networks. On Fox, he thinks Gotham and Brooklyn Nine-Nine are toast, Kevin will no longer be saving the world on ABC but Quantico should get a pass, on NBC all their new comedies and Timeless are likely done, while almost every show on CBS and CW are safe (minus CW’s Life Sentence and Valour, which were both just cut).
–Ta-Nehisi Coates on Kanye West is the one thing you need to read this week if you haven’t already.
-There have been some very, very good takes about what went down at FanCon. Today’s Vulture piece, which failed to interview the BGN writers who quit or the vendors affected, is not one of them.
-Ryan Reynolds using Canada to promote Deadpool 2 in Europe is a good time.
–Cher is a scene-stealer in the new Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again trailer.
