-Vogue shot artsy videos of the stars dancing around an exhibit room during the MET gala. The good ones are RihannaCardi BNicki Minaj, and Katy Perry.  The very best one is Frances McDormand dancing to Basement JaxxShe 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 capeZendaya‘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.

-All of the original Avengers got matching tattoos, except for Mark Ruffalo, who opted out. (But Chris Evans has a plan to get him “blackout drunk.“)

-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.

A Wrinkle In Time Stars Cover Time

wrinkle-in-time

-A Wrinkle In Time stars Mindy Kaling, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Storm Reid grace the new Time cover.

-Is Brad Pitt getting ready to debut a new girlfriend?

-Wow, the backlash to The Last Jedi came hard and fast. Most of the criticism I saw on Twitter was about its failure to answer questions The Force Awakens raised, which is just a big shrug emoji for me.

-Also, I really liked this article on Rey and Kylo (and I can’t believe that people are actually shipping them).

-Speaking of ships, here were the top 5 shipper moments on TV this year.

Sophia Bush opened up about her shocking exit from Chicago P.D. I love this part: “[I told them] I’m giving you 23 episodes notice. I’m giving you that much time. So there will be no conversation in which I was hysterical, emotional, in which I was being a quote irrational female or whatever you want to put on it. I’m literally sitting in front of you like cool as a cucumber. If this has to be like a big swinging d— competition, I promise you I will win.”

-You know a TV episode has gone off the rails when the star of Riverdale has to reassure fans that she was was fully involved in a striptease scene.

-Hollywood has clearly run out of ideas. NBC is eyeing a revival of The Office, with a mix of old and new castmembers.

-This gallery of Prince Harry as a third wheel made me laugh.

Rose McGowan  dragged actresses like Meryl Streep for planning to wear black in protest at the Golden Globes, and then Amber Tamblyn dragged Rose for dragging Meryl, and then Meryl was like “um, what’s with all the dragging?” I don’t disagree with Rose that the black dress this is kind of pointless. I like the suggestion that a big name actress take the founder of #MeToo as her date.

-The director of Bad Santa has come forward to say he was also discouraged from hiring Mira Sorvino. Can she sue Miramax for damages?

-Here’s a great suggestion: hire women whose careers were destroyed by Weinstein.

-God good, how has no one stopped Matt Damon from talking yet?!? Now he’s saying that when it comes to whether or not he’d work with someone accused of sexual misconduct: “You know, it would be a case-by-case basis.” He also insists we aren’t talking enough about men in Hollywood who aren’t predators. GAH!! He needs a time out.

-This is a great read on how Hollywood’s sexual offenders should face the law. This was the one thing that struck me about Damon’s initial comments (beyond being fed up with men’s knee-jerk reaction to immediately feel the need to qualify/rank offences, as if misconduct isn’t all stemming from the same systematic, power tripping issues), was his comment about how Louis CK has already paid such a “price” that Damon is sure he won’t do it again. What price? The loss of a career (that btw was a privledge, not a right?). That’s not a price, that’s a consequence. Dude exposed himself to unwilling participants. That’s a criminal offence. He should be rejoicing for escaping jail time.

Mario Batali sent an email apology for his “wrong” behavior that included a link to a recipe for cinnamon rolls in the same email.

-Actress Amy Smart is defending husband and HGTV star Carter Oosterhouse after he was accused of sexual misconduct.

Jason Priestley recalled the time he punched Harvey Weinstein in the face at a Golden Globes afterparty in 1995.

-When Kate Winslet started talking about working with Woody Allen during the LA Times roundtable, the faces Margot Robbie and Jessica Chastain made were priceless.

Terry Crews took to Twitter on Friday to accuse William Morris Endeavor (WME) of “retaliation” and spying on his family during his ongoing legal battle with the agency.

Nelly wants to take legal action to clear his name after rape case was dropped.

-Amazon just passed on all three of its pilots from the fall season. That’s depressing.

-Watch Jodie Foster reprise her Silence of the Lambs role to investigate Trump-Russia ties in a Late Show skit.

-Director Tracy Letts says everyone was nervous on the set of The Post, except Carrie Coon. “She just has ice water in her veins. She’s like an assassin. She’s the one person who was not nervous, and I think everybody found that a little disconcerting.” God, I love her.

-I totally forgot that one of the girls in Parenthood once convinced all of her costars to be in a music video, and even got Michael B Jordan to rap in it. It holds up.

Rachel Bloom installed a ball pit in her house and she’s my new hero.

-This is a very cute clip of a guy who proposed with Neflix’s help. “Drew Barrymore said my name!”

-This clip of Michael Shannon on At Home with Amy Sedaris is everything.

-The Ocean’s 8 trailer drops tomorrow but here’s a 15-second teaser. Are they eating at Veselka? God, I love this movie already.

-Here’s the trailer for Clint Eastwood’s real-life drama The 15:17 to Paris, starring Judy Greer and Jenna Fischer.

Are Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston Over?

taylor-swift-tom-hiddleston

-Forget the kids going back to school. The true end of summer 2016 was marked today by the reported breakup of Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston. (That being said, I’m side-eyeing Us Weekly’s source who’s claiming “Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with.” That just can’t be right.)

-Take it with a giant salt lick ’cause it’s coming from Radar, but they claim Katie Holmes can’t go public with Jamie Foxx until 2017 because it’s part of her divorce agreement.

Demi Lovato got a really big, really ugly tattoo on her arm and Snapped the whole process.

-Not gonna lie: one of the reasons I’m going to the Nocturnal Animals premiere at TIFF is to see how director Tom Ford dresses his leading lady, Amy Adams. She killed it in Venice.

-A movie that I’m not seeing at TIFF but wish I was is Moonlight, which is getting raves. The film continues amazing run for Brad Pitt’s Plan B, which is likely to have a fourth consecutive best picture nominee.

-Wow, Bridget Jones Baby is actually getting good reviews? Did not see that one coming…

-I’m not sold on Renee Zellweger’s premiere dress, tho.

-Two of my favourite TV critics just put out a book, and this excerpt about Buffy has convinced me to buy it.

-I got 8/10 on this “Name That Hamilton Yo” quiz, and I’m so disappointed in myself.

-This new photo from the Gilmore Girls reboot is super unflattering for Luke. Which kinda makes me love it.

-Don’t. Remake. Heathers.

John Boyega continues to be one of my favourite celebrity tweeters because of adorable crap like this.

-Surprise, surprise. Amy Schumer‘s book isn’t selling so well.

Channing Tatum offered Ellen Degeneres a preview of the new Magic Mike show coming to Vegas. This is going to factor into a lot of my vacation planning next year…

-Also, watching Channing fangirl over meeting Simone Biles is all kinds of swoony.

-Lots of good reaction has been written about Lena Dunham‘s problematic comments last week. Complex’s take on her white privilege is getting the most buzz, but I also kind of liked this one about how she’s a f*ckboy.

Amber Heard has reportedly dropped that Doug Stanhope defamation suit.

Jude Law plays a hot pope in a new HBO movie, The Young Pope.
