Prince William and Kate Middleton Mark 10 Years

Prince William and Kate Middleton are celebrating their 10-year anniversary and they released new official portraits and a sweet family video. It’s clearly a PR play, but it’s very cute so I’ll take it.

-In less happy royal family news, despite being near each other for Prince Philip‘s funeral, Prince Charles reportedly continued to freeze Harry out and they “barely communicated.”

-Gucci’s new ad campaign involves celebs appearing on a fake talk show, hosted by James Corden. My favourite is Dakota Johnson because she looks like she’s about 2 seconds from pulling her “Actually no, that’s not the truth, Ellen” schtick.

John Mayer is nearing a deal to host his own late-night talk show on Paramount Plus.

Billie Eilish gets up close and personal with a giant snake in her new music video.

Jason Segel and Alexis Mixter have split after eight years together.

Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric took us on a trip down gossip nostalgia lane when they appeared on a podcast and talked about that time Kiefer was supposed to marry Julia Roberts, but she left him for Jason just before the wedding. They were able to repair their friendship and now say they’re besties. Said Jason: “They’ve both subsequently been married since. A couple of times. They’re both very happy in their lives, and what lasted after all of that was me and Kiefer. Thirty-five-year buddies.”

-I don’t hate the podcast trend of TV stars rewatching their old shows. Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke just launched their podcast on The OC, and Scott Patterson is going to recap the Gilmore Girls on a new pod.

-I can’t stop looking at Camila Cabello’s outfit in these photos. I thought it was skirt but that first pic makes me think it’s pants. What?

-Congrats to comedian Hannah Gadsby, who announced on social media yesterday that she got married in January.

-I can’t imagine anyone wanting to go on a cruise post-pandemic. Not even if Gwyneth Paltrow is “curating the programming.”

Willow Smith’s new song is a bop. Meanwhile, on a new episode of Red Table Talk, she talks about her decision to practice polyamory.

Sarah Paulson was spotted wearing a fat suit to play Linda Tripp, and nobody’s happy about it.

-Doctor Who star and filmmaker Noel Clarke has been accused by 20 women of serial sexual predation.

Joe Rogan is backpedaling on his vaccine comments. “I’m not a doctor, I’m a fucking moron, and I’m a cage-fighting commentator who’s a dirty stand-up comedian… I’m not a respected source of information — even for me.”

-The Jeopardy contestant who made a white supremacy hand gesture now insists he didn’t.

Demi Lovato Opens Up about Sexuality, Broken Engagement

demi lovato glamour

Demi Lovato covers Glamour to promote her upcoming Youtube documentary and talked about her past issues with food (“I was excited that I was in a comfortable place in my body to show more skin, but what I was doing to myself was so unhealthy”), her sexuality (“I know who I am and what I am, but I’m just waiting until a specific timeline to come out to the world as what I am”), her broken engagement (“Because I denied my intuition of all the red flags that had popped up, I had no one else to blame but myself”), and her new outlook on life (“I am now making choices—for the day, and then the future—about what it is I want and what’s going to make me the happiest”).

Michael B Jordan got zen for his Men’s Health cover story.

-In Selena Gomez‘s Vogue cover story, she says she’s not done with music — yet. “It’s hard to keep doing music when people don’t necessarily take you seriously. I’ve had moments where I’ve been like, ‘What’s the point? Why do I keep doing this?’ “Lose You to Love Me” I felt was the best song I’ve ever released, and for some people it still wasn’t enough. I think there are a lot of people who enjoy my music, and for that I’m so thankful, for that I keep going, but I think the next time I do an album it’ll be different. I want to give it one last try before I maybe retire music.”

-A Deux Moi blind was posted yesterday about how the first of the Armie Hammer articles would drop today, and it ended up being from Vanity Fair. It’s a good deep dive into his family’s messed up history (including an eye-popping tidbit about how his dad has a sex chair with the family crest on the seat), but when it gets to Armie himself, it goes pretty easy on him. There’s four different quotes from anonymous friends of his dismissing the allegations as simply a kink or evidence of his “dry sense of humour,” and casting suspicions on his estranged wife about the timing of the leaked DMs (despite the fact that she’s seemed remarkably restrained, considering). It also seems to downplay the allegations of assault/abuse his recent exes Paige Lorenze and Courtney Vucekovich have leveled elsewhere.

-It’s interesting to see how the royal family is responding to the Oprah interview. Prince Charles hasn’t officially said anything, though his camp tells Vanity Fair he’s “devastated” because “he feels let down by them both. There is not a racist bone in his body and to suggest otherwise is very hurtful.” Prince William was more direct about going on the defensive, telling the media “We’re very much not a racist family” and that he still hasn’t talked to Harry about it.

-In a new Harper’s Bazaar’s article Omid Scobie quotes from an email he claims that Meghan Markle sent about not making Kate Middleton cry over flower girl dresses. “Well, if we’re just throwing any statement out there now, then perhaps KP can finally set the record straight about me [not making her cry],” she reportedly wrote to an aide.

-Harry Potter’s Katie Leung says publicists instructed her to pretend she wasn’t the target of racist vitriol by fans while playing Cho Chang in the films. “I remember them saying to me… ‘just say it’s, say it’s not true, say it’s not happening.'”

-Oh god, Matthew McConaughey is rumbling about going into politics.

-I had no idea there was a spinoff of The Boys in the works, but I’m here for it.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas will announce the Oscar nominees on Monday morning. Seems like an odd choice but ok.

Emmy Raver-Lampman and Daveed Diggs‘ house is featured in Architecture Digest and it’s so colourful and fun.

Adam McKay is the executive producer on a new HBO doc about QAn*n. Here’s the first trailer.

-Here’s the trailer for Anya Taylor-Joy and Finn Cole‘s new film, Here Are The Young Men.

Steven Yeun’s Big Year

Steven Yeun Variety

Steven Yeun is on the cover of Variety to promote his critically acclaimed new film Minari — which, for some reason, won’t compete in the Best Picture category at the Golden Globes and has been relegated to Foreign Language category, despite it being an American story set in America and made by an American director.

-I can’t believe that Margaret Qualley is dating Shia LaBeouf. On purpose.

-Good on John Mulaney for facing his problems. I hope he gets better.

A fresh wave of Wonder Woman 1984 reviews came out today because the screener embargo was lifted — and they’re much less glowing than the select early reviews Warner Bros curated.

-On the opposite end of the spectrum, Promising Young Woman also debuts on Christmas Day and the reviews seem to be getting even better.

-Oof.  Warner Bros is reportedly considering moving Dune back to a traditional theatrical release to “preserve its franchise potential.”

Prince William, Kate Middleton and their kids were reportedly spotted strolling with Prince Edward’s family — despite not being in the same covid bubble.

-This is an interesting look at why only a handful of celebs dominated this year’s media coverage. “With fewer people to photograph, almost every star was bound to get some traction just for stepping outside—and some say the stars have been cooperating to make it happen.”

-HBO Max is eyeing a Samantha-less Sex and The City revival. Don’t.

-This is a great examination of why J.K. Rowling‘s anti-trans stance shouldn’t be surprising. Her books are all about identifying/putting people in their place (wizards vs muggles, sorting hat, etc.) and she’s always seemed entrenched in her opinions, reluctant to allow much room for interpretation in her novels and “determined to map and describe every corner of her fictional world.”

-I missed the Eddie Izzard announcement but I love her and hope she’s happy.

Dominic West’s family holiday card is as awkward as you’d expect after the year he’s had.

The reviews for Netflix’s Bridgerton are glowing. “Frothy, silly escapism” is exactly what we need to ride out this craptastic year. Here’s hoping this leads to a wave of romance adaptations.

-This old ABC promo is blowing my mind.

Viola Davis and her husband take nightly baths together just to soak and talk—and sometimes she gives him facials. They have it all figured out.

Selena Gomez has cut ties with Hillsong Church. I’m surprised it took this long.

-So it’s been a few days since Ariana Grande’s engagement. Have we figured out why her ring is sideways yet?

Emily Blunt and Jamie Dornan trying to make the twist in Wild Mountain Thyme make sense when asked about it in interviews is their best acting yet. (If you don’t know what the twist is, please please please give yourself an early xmas gift and spoil it.)

Mads Mikkelsen laughing off the suggestion of speaking to Johnny Depp about taking over his Fantastic Beasts role with “I don’t know him” is, well, fantastic.

-The more Chris Pratt jokes about being named the worst Chris, the more obvious it is that it bugs him immensely.

-The fact that Kirk Cameron grew up to be such a garbage person would have crushed my 1986 self.

-Not surprisingly, the Mission Impossible 7 crew are reportedly walking on eggshells after Tom Cruise‘s rant.

-FX has greenlit a comedy series about Native American teenagers called Reservation Dogs from Taika Waititi and filmmaker Sterlin Harjo.

Denzel Washington and Rami Malek hunt for a serial killer in The Little Things trailer.
