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.

-Welp. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt reached a temporary summer custody agreement after a judge said she was in danger of losing primary custody of the kids unless she improved their relationship with their dad.

Ariana Grande wore a huge diamond ring to Wango Tango on June 2, suggesting her engagement to Pete Davidson happened even earlier than everyone thought.

Gwyneth Paltrow just gave the most GOOPy response when asked about planning her wedding: “I’m very busy so I’m actually not that involved in it. I have so much going on and I’m sort of outsourcing that.”

John Boyega has had enough of bad fans creating crazy conspiracy theories about why Kelly Marie Tran deleted her social media. First he replied to people, then he tweeted “You’re not entitled to politeness when your approach is rude. Even if you paid for a ticket!” Marry me.

Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Facebook’s talkshow Red Table Talk continues to be an exercise in oversharing. Willow revealed her introduction to sex was when she accidentally walked in on Will and Jada.

-According to Deadline, Matt Reeves wants to reboot Batman as a standalone franchise and replace Ben Affleck.

-When we left the theatre on Friday after seeing Ocean’s 8 I turned to my friends and said “so Cate Blanchett and Sandra Bullock‘s characters were totally gay for each other, right?” and everyone agreed. And it’s not just us who thought so! Even though I wish the subtext was more actual text, I love that everyone’s writing about their chemistry, like here, here and here.

Anthony Bourdain‘s Parts Unknown was scheduled to come off Netflix US on June 16, but they just announced it will remain.

-I tweeted a link to her twitter thread about it yesterday, but Mo Ryan compiled her thoughts on how TV has treated actresses over 40 this year into an excellent, stats-filled article for THR. I still can’t believe Mary McDonnell’s lead character was killed off Major Crimes just before the series finale and they took her name off the show’s credits in the final episodes — and she wasn’t warned that would happen ahead of time.

-The cast and creators of American Vandal talking about how they filmed nana’s party is pretty great.

-Speaking of TV look backs, Jesse Plemons and Cristin Milioti talk about their Black Mirror episode “USS Callister,” in which he plays an incel and she’s the feminist who takes him down.

-This recreation of The Office opening with a fluffy dog playing all the human parts really saved my entire day.

-Are you guys watching Dietland? I’m really, really digging what Julianna Margulies is doing.

-I don’t watch Suits so I don’t get it, but everyone one my Twitter TL was loving how shady this post apparently is.

-Many people have noticed that the Diplo-produced lead single from the Deadpool 2 soundtrack, “Welcome to the Party,” sounds a lot like a Kanye West song. Turns out, West thinks so too, tweeting “bro, I would have cleared my music.”

Mike Schur settled some debate about what really happened in The Good Place’s season two finale. I was so wrong.

-Also, my friend pointed out that The Good Place’s official Twitter account is only following 8 people — and that includes Rihanna and Anna Kendrick. What could that mean!??

-CBS is still going all in with their All Access subscription service. Kevin Williamson is re-teaming with The Vampire Diaries’ Paul Wesley for a new series.

-This is so inside baseball, but today’s AT&T-Time Warner mega-merger approval clears the way for Comcast to unveil a rival bid for Fox assets, which means the Fox/Disney merger may not be a sure thing after all.

Stan Lee‘s business manager was arrested on suspicion of filing a false police report.

Domhnall Gleeson and Ruth Wilson get moody in The Little Stranger trailer.

Keanu Reeves plays an American diamond trader in the Siberia trailer. Unfortunately this does not appear to be a rom-com in which he drinks his way through a wedding weekend with Winona Ryder, so I have very little interest…

Paul Wesley and Phoebe Tonkin Reunited?

-CW stars Paul Wesley and Phoebe Tonkin split last month after four years of dating, but it looks like they might be back on. This is some CW-levels of romantic drama. Way to stay on brand, guys!

-This profile on Elisabeth Moss includes lots of interesting tidbits, including the fact she memorized The Handmaid’s Tale’s frequent voiceovers so she could repeat them in her head when shooting those scenes so that the words would match her expressions, and that she signed on to the show for 5-7 seasons (which is troubling).

-Also, The Muse poses a good question: is it relevant that the star of The Handmaid’s Tale belongs to a secretive, allegedly oppressive religion?

Chris Pratt posted a deleted scene from Parks & Rec for TBT and now I want one every week.

-Also, Chris pranked a pet store by calling them and asking for advice on how to care for a Baby Groot.

Madonna is not a fan of Universal’s Blond Ambition biopic and she fired off a string of Instagram posts to let world to know. “Why would Universal Studios want to make a movie about me based on a script that is all lies???” she wrote in a now-deleted post. I’m guessing this means the producers won’t be asking to use her music in it?

-On the Tonight Show, Leslie Jones had a wild story for Dr. Phil and he had to figure out if it was true or false. Props to Dr. Phil for keeping a straight face when she starts talking about her date’s nuts…

-I was wondering why Emma Watson and Tom Hanks have been so quiet with promotion for The Circle, which opens this weekend. (Remember the weeks leading up to Beauty & The Beast? She was EVERYWHERE.) Turns out it’s because the movie is really, really bad.

Haim’s new video was directed by their mom’s former student — who happens to be Paul Thomas Anderson.

David Fincher is doing pal Brad Pitt a huge favour by agreeing to direct the World War Z sequel.

Keira Knightley and Andrew Lincoln filmed an adorable new Love Actually charity video inviting fans to visit them in London for “cuddles” and “a cup of tea.”

-It’s hard to judge the new season of Fargo because I’ve only seen one episode but I found it mind-numbingly boring, so I liked this article about how “prestige TV” is often  formulaic fare that’s serving you a Big Mac and convincing you it’s a steak.

-So Jason Segel is writing YA science fiction books now? Cool cool cool.

Scarlett Johansson and Tilda Swinton are in another white-washing controversy after being cast in Wes Anderson’s upcoming stop-motion film, Isle of Dogs.

-Why yes, I would like to read an oral history of Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion, tyvm.

Alison Brie plays a bad girl in the latest teaser for Netflix’s GLOW.

Alicia Vikander, Judi Dench and Cara Delevingne star in the new trailer for the period piece Tulip Fever.
