ariana-grande-elle-august-cover

-In Ariana Grande‘s Elle cover story, she talks about dealing with the Manchester concert and loving Jaws when she was just 4, but stays mum on her quickie engagement.

-Meanwhile, Pete Davidson defended his decision to give fiancée Ariana Grande his late father’s FDNY badge, which she’s wearing on a necklace.

Meghan Markle‘s father says he thinks his daughter looks terrified in her new family, saying he can tell by her smile. My god, how is he still allowed to talk about her?

-The is weird: Hulu just stealth-dropped the entire new season of UnREAL. It may still air on Lifetime, but not until next year, if at all. They’re playing it like it’s a Beyonce-style surprise release, but it feels a lot more like a summer burn-off.

Johnny Depp has settled his legal feud with his former managers.

Demi Moore and Cybill Shepherd got in on the Bruce Willis-roasting action for Comedy Central.

Jessica Biel‘s trouble-plagued restaurant has abruptly closed.

Chris Pine uses a flip phone and drives a Jeep Wagoner. And yet, I still think he’s the best Chris. He’s so great, he’s able to overcome all this hipster nonsense.

Sacha Baron Cohen‘s new series on Showtime is getting rave reviews. I like this take on how he’s able to respond to right wing troll culture in a way mainstream reporters cannot. The gun segment is insane.

Danielle Panabaker will make her directorial debut in The Flash’s new season. Well, they’re not giving her anything to do in front of the camera so she might as well try behind it.

Billy Bush‘s wife has filed for divorce. She deserves a medal for sticking it out for two years after the tapes.

Cardi B, Beyonce and Jay-Z are leading the MTV VMA nominations.

-I gave up on The Crown because it was way too slow for my tastes, but Olivia Colman looks amazing as Queen Elizabeth. It’s hard to believe that that’s the same woman who once said “Move away from me now or I will piss in a cup and throw it at you.”

-I missed that Broadway stars were sniping about Lauren Ambrose taking Sunday matinees off during her My Fair Lady run.

-Stranger Things doesn’t come back until next year, but Netflix is already promoting it with a new teaser that introduces a new job for Steve.

-Expectant couple Norman Reedus and Diane Kruger had some face mask fun on Instagram, but seriously, has no one introduced them to Korean sheet masks yet?! I expect more from her.

-I love that Christine Baranski had no idea what Big Dick Energy was, but as soon as she was told she had it she was like “oh, I get it now.”

-Now that The Handmaid’s Tale finale has aired here, I get why it was so divisive with critics last week.

-Michelle Obama dancing in the front row of a Beyonce concert is a mood.

-Vulture ranked the 20 best rom-com sidekicks and I love these picks!

-I’m seeing The Miseducation of Cameron Post this week, and the new trailer has me v. excited.

-The promo for an Emma Roberts/Hayden Christensen rom-com might actually be the worst trailer of the year. So naturally, I can’t wait to watch it.

-Speaking of movie trailers, I love this 90s trailer bracket.

Felicity Jones fights for gender equality as young a Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the trailer for On the Basis of Sex, costarring Armie Hammer. This looks, um…not great.

Pete Davidson Gives Ariana Grande a Birthday Piggyback

Pete Davidson wished Ariana Grande a happy birthday on Instagram. It’s a very cute photo, but it reminded me of that old meme about how she is always being carried around.

-In her Instyle cover feature, Serena Williams says she’d “already be pregnant” with baby number two if she wasn’t working.

Tiffany Haddish says Drake once stood her up for a date, so he didn’t make her ‘dick pic book’. She elaborated: “Anytime I would go on a date, I would ask a guy if I could see his penis. And then I would pull out my disposable camera and I would ask him, ‘Can I take a picture of your penis? Not your face or anything. I just want to remember your penis. It was a nice little coffee table conversation situation.” I have so many followup questions…

-Time’s Up and Rashida Jones have released a PSA about sexual harassment, which was narrated by Donald Glover.

-I’m so here for Evangeline Lilly‘s transformation into an action hero.

Meghan Markle‘s dad just needs to stop. Like, immediately.

-Stellar human being Terry Crews testified to the Senate today about his own sexual assault experience and advocated for the Sexual Assault Survivors’ Bill of Rights, saying the producer of Expendables 4 threatened retaliation if Crews didn’t drop his sexual assault lawsuit. “I wanted these survivors to know that I believe them, I supported them and that this happened to me too.”

Robert De Niro says the Weinstein Company still owes him almost $1 million for Silver Linings Playbook. Meryl Streep, George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino have also said they’re owed considerable amounts of money, with the latter reportedly claiming for around $4 million.

David Lynch is walking back his Trump comments, saying they were “taken a bit out of context.” Though his clarification kind of makes things worse, IMO.

-How did I miss that David Beckham left his longtime manager, who also manages Victoria, last week. Although they just posed together. This is all very confusing.

-It’s the 20th anniversary of Out of Sight, which is in my top 5 movies of all time.

-This Henry Cavill gif messed me up.

Keiynan Lonsdale is a human unicorn and I love him. He opened his home to MTV to talk about about being young, queer, and creative.

-I’m really digging the trailer for the new British series A Discovery of Witches, starring Theresa Palmer and Matthew Goode as a scholarly witch and a vampire who fall in love in Oxford.

Denzel Washington plays a Lyft driver you really don’t want to piss of in The Equalizer 2 trailer.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson Get Matching Tattoos

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson moved into a $16 million NYC apartment.  They also got more matching tats. What is this life?

-In her Rolling Stone cover story, Cardi B says she plans to take her baby on the road on her upcoming tour with Bruno Mars: “I don’t want to miss one second. I don’t want to miss no smiles, I don’t want to miss no new movement, I don’t want the baby to confuse me and the babysitter.” She also sounds off on Trump: “He has proven himself to be a madman so many times, and proven himself to be disrespectful to women, and that still hasn’t gotten him impeached.”

-On Watch What Happens Live, Andy Cohen asked Cher for a list of her best lovers over the years and she put Tom Cruise “in the top 5.” Well.

-Jeebus. Whatever you think Chris Hardwick did or did not do to Chloe Dykstra, his subsequent behaviour following her essay has been repugnant. First there was his gaslighting, victimized denial.  And now “somebody” has leaked private texts between the two to TMZ, which show that he broke up with her and she tried to reconcile.  What in the world did he expect this to prove? She was already clear in her essay that she kissed another man when they were together, which caused their split. And anyone who thinks that women who’ve been manipulated and abused don’t have complicated relationships with their manipulator and/or don’t often get sucked back in, needs to talk to more women IRL.

-Meanwhile, it’s very telling that so few people who know or worked for Hardwick have jumped to his defense. I’ve seen lots of verifieds back up Dykstra, but not one tweet from a blue checkmark that says anything along the lines of “wow, this really doesn’t line up with what I know of him.” And last night The Wrap posted an article which quoted a bunch of his colleagues and former employees, and the general consensus seems to be “nobody’s surprised.”

George and Amal Clooney have donated $100K to help reunite migrant children who’ve been separated from their parents.

Judd Apatow is calling for a total boycott of Fox and urging entertainers who work for Fox movies and TV to speak out — and many have, including New Girl showrunner Liz Meriwether, Marti Noxon, You’re The Worst showrunner Stephen Falk, and actor Adam Scott. But some of the celebs who are staying silent are surprising.

-I am very glad that this New York Times interview with Josh Brolin on his blockbuster moment doesn’t shy away from his history of domestic violence with Diane Lane. The fact that the “summer of Brolin” coincides with #MeToo is deeply odd. Not surprisingly, he skirts the issue. “God, I’ve never been so careful with my words. Ever. Maybe in all 50 years. And there’s no reason for me to be other than there’s no explaining it. Do you know what I mean? The only person who can explain that would be Diane, and she’s chosen not to, so I’m O.K. with that.”

-Oh, he also just signed on to do a show on Hulu. Ok.

-I can’t believe this is what Justin Bieber is looking like these days. How? When? How?

-Amy Adams talked about being mistaken for her stand-in on her new HBO show, and being shocked by how differently she was treated when they thought she was someone else.  “At one point somebody grabbed me really hard and pulled me. I went, ‘What’s going on?’ And they’re like ‘(Gasp) You’re not Reb!'”

-Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams has been ordered to pay $100k/month in child and spousal support.

Busy Phillips has a book coming out! Yes, please.

-Plans for future A Star Wars Story films — including the Obi-Wan movie — have been put on hold. This seems like a good idea. Not that I doubt we won’t be getting a ton more standalone SW films soon, but after Solo a pause and regroup makes sense.

-The saga of John Travolta‘s latest box office flop Gotti keeps getting stranger. Its weird anti-critic campaign may include tampering with Rotten Tomatoes’ audience rating.

-This Felicity cast interview is delightfully bonkers. (I now want a Scott Speedman/Scott Foley sitcom based on these interactions.)

James Van Der Beek‘s wife had a home birth for their fifth (fifth!) kid and he documented it on IG.

Linda Hamilton and Mackenzie Davis look appropriately buff while filming Terminator 6.

-Hmmm…the latest episode of The Handmaid’s Tale comes with a warning “This episode has content that may be extra sensitive for some viewers” — but the show has become so brutal that TV critics couldn’t figure out which scene they were referring to. (Well, female critics, anyway.)

-In the trailer for the Robert Zemeckis–directed Welcome to Marwen, Steve Carell plays a man whose life is shattered after being beaten within an inch of his life by a group of Nazis. He copes with his trauma by making art out of an elaborate WWII doll village called Marwen.

Michael B Jordan is a dad (and a daddy!) in the new Creed 2 trailer.
