-Are you watching Glow on Netflix? It’s great. I was complaining last week that I needed something fun and light and not Handmaid’s Tale-y, and along came this perfect little show. Community’s Alison Brie is wonderful (and almost unrecognizable) as the lead female wrestler. I really loved this Marie Claire profile on her.  (Articles that start with the writer puking in front of the star are always good.)

-Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke says being a woman in Hollywood is like “dealing with racism.” Oh sweetie, no. (Also, who’s going to break the news to her than some people experience both at the same time?!)

-Netflix just announced a surprise Christmas special for the recently cancelled Sense8. Between this and Timeless’ renewal, we can no longer pretend that Twitter fan petitions don’t matter.

John Mayer doesn’t want to talk about having sex with Katy Perry. What a coincidence! We don’t want to hear about it!

-Is any famous person less qualified to launch a GOOP-style lifestyle site than Lindsay Lohan?

-God bless Gillian Anderson for speaking up on the lack of women behind the scenes on The X Files. In the wake of the news that the new season will be written entirely by men, she tweeted “And 2 out of 207 eps directed by women. I too look forward to the day when the numbers are different. #TheFutureisFemale”

Pharrell Williams, father of triplets, refuses to change diapers. He sounds swell.

-Here’s the first trailer for Marvel’s Inhumans. Those are some intense struggle wigs, guys.

Corinne Olympios says her team’s Bachelor In Paradise investigation is done, but she won’t return to the show. The show has reportedly installed a limit of two drinks per hour, and before any couple can have sex on the show, they must approach a producer and each verbally consent beforehand.

-Spider-Man: Homecoming had its premiere last night and the early reviews are pretty positive.

-Ohhh…a trailer for season two of Insecure!

-The Notorious B.I.G.’s estate threatened Kendall and Kylie Jenner with a lawsuit if they don’t put a stop to selling shirts with the legendary rapper’s image. Kendall took to Twitter to apologize.

-I really like this review of Netflix’s Gypsy and how it talks about the growing problem of “well-made bad TV.” I think it started with House of Cards.

Leighton Meester and Adam Brody say they never mention the fact that Seth Cohen and Blair Waldorf got married. So like, what do they talk about?!

Millie Bobbie Brown, Ashton Sanders, Paris Jackson and other hot young things show up in The XX’s new music video.

-I don’t know how I missed this Amy Poehler speech from a few weeks ago but I’m glad I saw it now.

-Meanwhile, this video with Amy and Will Ferrell made me giggle.

-All the celebrity #Ham4All tweets are killing me. My faves (so far) are Kristen Bell, Colin Donnell, Ben Schwartz, and Jonathan Groff.

-Watch Andrew Garfield and The Crown’s Claire Foy fall in love in the Breathe trailer.

-The new Jumanji trailer, starring The RockKevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan, is way more Breakfast Club than I was expecting.

Paris Jackson: ‘It’s Obvious’ Dad Michael Was Murdered


Paris Jackson gave  her first-ever in-depth interview for the cover of Rolling Stone and she didn’t exactly hold back. She talked about her multiple suicide attempts, her childhood growing up on the Neverland ranch (“We couldn’t just go on the rides whenever we wanted to. We actually had a pretty normal life”) and her belief that her father Michael was murdered.

Ewan McGregor (a longtime supporter of women’s rights) is refusing to be on Piers Morgan’s show because of his comments on the women’s march. Bless him.

Todd Fisher teared up talking about his sister Carrie being the face of anti-Trump rebellion.

Cate Blanchett expertly turned a silly Jimmy Fallon game into a giant Trump shading session.

-The Oscar noms were announced this morning and the biggest shock was Meryl Streep‘s nomination. She beat out the much-more deserving Amy Adams, Annette Benning and Taraji P. Henson. (The internet was particularly pressed about Adams’ snub.)  In other WTF? moments, Mel Gibson somehow scored a Best Director nod over Martin Scorsese (Silence), Garth Davis (Lion), Pablo Larraín (Jackie), Denzel Washington (Fences) and David Mackenzie (Hell or High Water). It wasn’t a complete wash, though. Michael Shannon‘s nod was a nice surprise for Nocturnal Animals (he was one of the few things I liked about that film), O.J.: Made in America was nominated in the doc category, and at least one person of colour was nominated in every major category.

-At least Meryl’s reaction to her Oscar nom was kind of cute.

-Not surprisingly, Deadpool didn’t make the cut. Ryan Reynolds responded with a tickle fight invite.

-Fresh Off The Boat’s Constance Wu wrote about how Casey Affleck’s Oscar win will be a nod to Trump’s and I think I love her.

Tom Cruise, Joel McHale, Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds and Armie Hammer are all rumoured to be on the shortlist to play Green Lantern and I’m so bored by all of those names.

Aaron Paul is hinting that Jesse Pinkman might make an appearance in Better Call Saul, which I guess I now have to catch up on? Sigh.

-Oh yeah. I forgot that Laura Prepon is having Ben Foster’s baby.

-Never thought I’d say this, but Jon Cyrer FTW.

Kirsten Dunst is showing off her engagement ring from Jesse Plemons. Landry did good!

-Proof the world isn’t totally shit: The xx scored the highest charting album ever on the Billboard charts. (I’ve been listening to “On Hold” on repeat for months.)

-I rolled my eyes so hard at this clip of Jeremy Renner advising Elizabeth Olsen to approach filmmaking with problem solving that I think I sprained something.

-Huh. The recent lack of TV cancellations this season is starting to create a logjam for broadcast networks as they head into pilot season.

Joshua Jackson is good people.

-The Leftovers returns  April 16th. No show in recent memory completed such as successful turnaround from S1 to S2 in my mind so I’m looking forward to it. Here’s the new S3 promo.

-A new Trainspotting trailer has landed.

Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy Feel “The Heat”


-Does anyone else think The Heat stars Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy both look really weird on the cover of Parade?

-More details are emerging about Paris Jackson‘s alleged suicide attempt. Sources say she wasn’t serious, and may have been lashing out because she wasn’t allowed to go to a Marilyn Manson concert, or possibly because she feared having to testify in her late father’s wrongful death lawsuit. There’s also some talk this wasn’t her first attempt.

Liam Hemsworth (or at least his publicist) has joined Twitter (no doubt because he was itching to respond to Amanda Bynes‘ flirt-Tweets – after all, they have a cozy past).

-Meanwhile, Liam shares some steamy scenes with Amber Heard in the new trailer for Paranoia.

Vince Gilligan says he cried while writing the finale episode of Breaking Bad. Something tells me I’m going to experience some serious PTSD when this show ends.

-Speaking of Breaking Bad, as part of his charity monologue series, Samuel L. Jackson performed Walter White‘s “I am the one who knocks” speech.

Angelina Jolie wore a Brad Pitt-designed bracelet, proving to the world that Brad Pitt should stop designing bracelets.

-Good on Jennifer Lawrence: she’s not only going to star in the upcoming adaptation of The Rules of Inheritance, she’ll also produce it.

Richard Branson claims Justin Bieber has already booked a trip to space on the Virgin Galactic. Can he just stay there for a while?

-I like this article, in which Lena Dunham analyzes three episodes of Girls. Her response to the Patrick Wilson casting controversy is great: “Really? Can you not imagine a world in which a girl who’s sexually down for anything and oddly gregarious pulls a guy out of his shell for two days?”

-Of course the guy who plays Jamie Lannister on Game of Thrones says his weirdest fan encounter happened in Toronto. Of course.

-Meanwhile, George RR Martin really enjoyed watching the fan reactions to the last episode on Conan.

-In other late night talk show fun, I loved Fallon‘s ragtime version of “I Wanna Sex You Up.”

-You know that really old Lassegg video that went viral a few years ago? Idris Elba just recreated it, wig and all.

-Speaking of recreations, Adam Scott talks about teaming up with Amy Poehler for his latest TV theme song re-enactment.

Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger can’t even keep their hands off each other at the grocery store.

-If you want to keep liking Jonah Hill, you’re probably going to want to skip Rolling Stone‘s interview with the cast of This Is the End, because he comes off like a humourless pill.

-The great thing about Joss Whedon‘s Much Ado About Nothing being released soon is that we’re seeing tons of interviews with him. Here he talks about his new movie’s similarities with Buffy, and here he pretty much says that he won’t do The Avengers 2 without Robert Downey Jr.

Russell Brand talks about his divorce in the new issue of Esquire, saying his marriage to Katy Perry failed because they both had “lots of options.” Hmmm.

-Magazine buyers would rather buy issues featuring TV actresses on the cover than movie stars.

-Speaking of TV actresses, Jessica Pare is amused by everyone’s Mad Men theories surrounding her fate.

Nicole Richie is calling out a paparazzo for allegedly dropping his own daughter in order to snap a photo of her. Yikes!

Nicole Kidman posed with ex-boyfriend Lenny Kravitz at the CMT Music Awards last night.

George Clooney is shilling for his new tequila company. Still hot, though.

-Here’s the red-band trailer for The To Do List, starring Audbrey Plaza, Bill Hader, Rachel Bilson and Andy Samberg. I’m cautiously optimistic about this one.
