Kate Middleton Covers Vogue


Kate Middleton looks lovely on the cover of British Vogue (good hair, good brows, no evidence of bad eyeliner), but a white dress shirt and suede jacket is a little meh for an issue celebrating 100 years of fashion, no?

-Congrats to Kerry Washington, who’s expecting her second baby (take that, marriage rumours!) There’s already talk that it’ll push Scandal to midseason.

-EW went all in on Game of Thrones spoilers by tweeting their new cover first thing this morning. The actor in question does an admirable job of trying to gracefully apologize for PR shenanigans.

-Something’s coming from Radiohead. We don’t know what yet, but it’s something. Who else is getting goosies?!

Mads Mikkelsen isn’t ready to give up on Hannibal season 4 — which is both sweet and a little sad ’cause it’s probably never going to happen.

-The Ghostbusters trailer is the most disliked trailer in YouTube history because humanity sucks. Luckily, director Paul Feig isn’t here for the assholes hating on his female characters.

Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry had a Friends reunion in London. No word if they needed to step into a pop up map.

Idris Elba and Tom Hiddletson are both wearing suits that in theory, I should hate. But da-yum! My ovaries aren’t going to survive them at tonight’s MET Gala.

J.K. Rowling is very sorry she killed Lupin, but she kinda needs you to let it go already.

Amy Schumer is getting shit for saying she won’t take pics with fans anymore after a terrible encounter. I can’t say I blame her.

Julia Roberts earned a whopping $3 million for just  four days of shooting on Mother’s Day.

-Speaking of which, the reviews for that movie are hilariously scathing. My favourite: ‘What Happens When Huge Stars Make a Huge Crapfest of a Film.

-An oral history of Rent? Amazing! (It’s weird that no one mentions that time I tried to start a “Seasons of Love” singalong on the subway, though. That was a historic moment.)

-Oooh boy. Bryan Singer is already launching lengthy defenses of X-Men’s Apocalypse.

Usher is showing off his dick on Snapchat to thirst-trap the world and/or tell you how much he loves Samsung phones.

-There’s lots of great article out today about showrunners/creators pushing for more diversity and gender equality on TV. (Awesome CW stat: Arrow now has at least 50 percent of its episodes directed by either non-white or female directors.) This interview with Damien showrunner Glen Mazzara also really wants to make me watch his show, just because of the philosophy behind it.

-Have you seen Tiffani Thiessen‘s cooking show? She invites celebrity guests over for dinner and it’s weirdly awesome. Her latest reunites Zack and Kelly!

-HBO is adapting The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (loved that book!) and Oprah Winfrey is set to star.

Timothy Olyphant hilariously demonstrated the subtle differences between acting for stage vs. screen for Conan last night.

-I’m kicking off my birthday celebrations this weekend with Captain America: Civil War, which critics are calling Marvel’s best movie yet.

Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson get their western on in The Dual trailer.

Kelly Ripa Returns with Pitch Perfect Statement

Kelly Ripa returned to her show this morning, and before sitting down with Michael Strahan she delivered a statement that was everything it needed to be: funny, direct, pointed. She refused to apologize for taking the time off (“I needed a couple of days to gather my thoughts. After 26 years with this company, I earned the right.”) and she reaffirmed that her issue was about respect, not money (“this started a much greater conversation about communication and consideration and, most importantly, respect in the workplace”). The only time she wobbled slightly was her reaction to Strahan telling her,”If you need me, I’m coming back to help out.”

-Meanwhile, ABC has widely decided to let Strahan leave Live in May instead of September, avoiding a summer full of awkwardness.

-I gave up on both How To Get Away With Murder and Orange Is the New Black, but I’m still following Matt McGorry on Twitter because boy is woke. He’s schooling of Piers Morgan on Beyonce was a thing of beauty.

Rachel Roy released a statement saying she is not, in fact, “Becky with the good hair,” so now everyone’s side-eyeing Rita Ora. K.

-Not a good week to give Beyonce a thigh gap, W.

-I’m really looking forward to Bill Simmons’ new HBO show, which premieres in June. I’m currently listening to his Louis CK podcast and it’s excellent.

-Disney’s upcoming movie slate is all girl power, all the time.

Emilia Clarke‘s pose on the cover of Vogue Australia is hella awkward, no?

Bill Cosby is now demanding New York mag hand over info from their interviews with his accusers. The utter gall of this guy will never not astound me.

-Everything about Dylan O’Brien’s on-set accident continues to sound terrifying.

-This video of guys reading horrific tweets out loud to female sportswriters is powerful, but also a little confusing. Like, are we supposed to feel bad for how hard this is for *the men* in this video? And I’m surprised that they’re this surprised. Any woman who has any kind of internet presence deals with this shit all the time.

-I feel like Ariana Grande should focus all her appearances on late night talk show skits and SNL. It’s where she really shines.

-Speaking of late-night shows, Jimmy Fallon told a cute story about Prince randomly challenging him to a game of ping pong.

-In other Prince news, New Girl creator Liz Meriwether wrote a great essay about having Prince guest star on her show. (Fox is re-airing his episode tonight.)

Thomas Middleditch hijacked Tom Hiddleston’s group text and has no regrets.

Samantha Bee took on opponents of the Harriet Tubman $20 bill and it was glorious!

-Oh FFS. Marvel says Tilda Swinton’s Ancient One character in Doctor Strange is Celtic, not Tibetan.

-Shocking report: Leonardo DiCaprio was spotted getting cozy with a model. Try to suppress your surprise.

John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson battle phone-wielding freaks in the Cell trailer.

Prince George Stayed Up Past His Bedtime to Meet Barack and Michelle Obama

-It’s been a rough week. We all needed these photos of Prince George playing with the rocking horse Obama gave him.

-Remember when Charlize Theron fought so hard to be paid as much money as Chris Hemsworth in The Huntsman: Winter’s War? She only has 10 minutes of screentime in the entire thing. I love her even more now.

-Meanwhile, I’m pretty sure the scathing reviews for The Huntsman: Winter’s War are more entertaining than the movie itself.

-Any lingering lust vibes you had for Ben Affleck from his Pearl Harbor days will be squashed by these new photos of him vaping. Squashed right dead.

-This article on TV costars who hated each other is a good read. I didn’t know about Balthazar Getty and his Brothers and Sisters costars.

Mo Ryan has a great take on Kelly Ripa and the current network TV narrative, which seems to be “women are expendable/dismissable.”

-Meanwhile, sources in Kelly‘s camp insist her anger ‘is not about money or jealousy or rivalry.’

-Right on cue, here come the stories about Kelly and Michael Strahan not liking each other.

-“He’s actually a really gentle guy” Diane Kruger says of Norman Reedus. I’m not the only one adding “in bed” in my head, right??

Richard Madden says his Cinderella pants were so tight he nearly threw up. I approve.

-There’s talk now that Amy Adams might be the one behind the Guardian’s Secret Actress column. I dunno — I’m getting an older actress vibe.

-I adore this piece on female friendships in Broad City and Girls.

-Awesome Prince stories continue to surface, like the time he surprised his tour bus driver with a custom bike, or the time he saw Hamilton, said nothing, met no one, and then gave it a rave review. Meanwhile, I’ve spent the better part of the day listening to his “Creep” cover from Coachella. It was seven years ago and I still remember that performance more than any other concert I’ve ever been to.

-Meanwhile, this headline sums everything up: “Justin Bieber Said Something Really Stupid about Prince. Because He’s an Asshole”

-God, I wish the people who pick the Peabody Award TV winners could take over the Emmys. These are all solid, solid choices.

Joss Whedon and Mark Ruffalo got together to chat Avengers, Shakespeare, and insecurity.

Tilda Swinton addresses the Doctor Strange casting controversy — without really addressing the issue at all.

-This profile of Don Cheadle just convinced me that Don Cheadle is the coolest MFker to ever exist.

-Lots of this go boom in the new Independence Day: Resurgence trailer.
