Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Are Engaged

-The summer of quickie celebrity weddings continues! Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are reportedly engaged after just two months of dating. And he apparently closed down Tiffany’s to get her engagement ring like he’s goddamn Patrick Dempsey or something…

-A new Ronan Farrow exposé is coming later today, and it’s set to be a biggie. CBS CEO Leslie Moonves, one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, is being accused of sexual misconduct. While THR suggests the investigation alleges unwanted kissing and touching, Farrow suggested the claims in the full story may be more explosive, tweeting: “A quick reminder that I don’t comment on reporting I haven’t published, and if you’re reading about my work from secondary sources you’re often not getting the full or correct story—especially in cases where parties have an interest in downplaying or otherwise spinning.”

Anna Wintour’s final Vogue cover will reportedly be Beyoncé, which is a pretty great way to bow out.

Roseanne Barr doubled down on her race excuse in her Hannity interview. Sigh.

-Today’s Star Wars: Episode IX cast announcement revealed that Mark Hamill would be back (did anyone doubt it?) confirms Billy Dee Williams’ return, added Richard E. Grant and Naomi Ackie to the cast, and most surprisingly, announced that it will use unreleased Carrie Fisher footage. They also didn’t mention Keri Russell, but she’s still involved.

-Los Angeles County prosecutors have concluded there is insufficient evidence to charge Gossip Girl Ed Westwick with rape stemming from those earlier allegations from three women.

Sarah Jessica Parker sat down to chat with Gwyneth Paltrow on her podcast, in which they talked about marriage and Cynthia Nixon running for governor.

-I’m here for Ira writing a Neflix show!

-It was a good week for white actresses to be woke on Instagram. Anne Hathaway posted an impassioned response to Nia Wilson‘s murder on Wednesday (“We must ask our (white)selves- how “decent” are we really? Not in our intent, but in our actions? In our lack of action?”), and Minka Kelly defended costar Anna Diop, who left Instagram due to racists.

-The new season of Orange Is The New Black dropped today to mixed reviews.

-BBC Radio 1 canceled an interview with Logan Paul, saying it “didn’t meet our standards.” I’ve actually unfollowed Chloe Bennet on Insta because her stories are all about him cuddling her dog, and I just can’t.

-I love that everyone is pointing out that Amy Adams’ character on Sharp Objects is the worst reporter ever.

-I’m feeling Jennifer Garner‘s opinion of camping in the trailer for her upcoming HBO comedy.

Tom Cruise made James Corden jump out of a plane and this entire video is amazing. Look, if you need to skydive in order to goose your talk show’s ratings, you couldn’t ask for a better cheerleader than Cruise.

 

Does Meghan Markle Suddenly Sound British?

-People seem to be really angry that Meghan Markle sounds like she’s starting to adopt a British accent, but I’m totally here for it!

Jennifer Lopez has sparked speculation that she and A-Rod are engaged after she posted a photo in which she is prominently showing off a ring.

-Speaking of new rings, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas were spotted wearing matching bands, leading to rumours that they are promise rings. Remember the other kind of promise ring he used to wear? I sure do.

-For the first time in recent memory, Taylor Swift had a super low key fourth of July. Not even matching bathing suits? Oh, Tay-Tay.

Chris Brown was arrested in Florida following his concert (because apparently people still pay to see him?!) for a felony battery warrant stemming from an April 2017 incident at a Tampa night club in which Brown allegedly punched photographer, Bennie Louis Vines

-The LA Times says it’s the perfect time for Greta Gerwig’s version of Little Women. Maybe but I’m just SO BORED by the cast. They’re all great (Saoirse Ronan, Meryl Streep, Emma Stone and Timothée Chalamet) but just so very predictable.

-It looks like Sacha Baron Cohen is in talks with Showtime for a new TV series — and he’ll be targeting the president, somehow.

-As someone who identifies as “washed,” I loved this article.

-Panic! At the Disco’s Brendon Urie just came out as pansexual. “I’m married to a woman and I’m very much in love with her but I’m not opposed to a man because, to me, I like a person. Yeah I guess you could qualify me as pansexual because I really don’t care.”

-If the tracking is correct, Ant Man and The Wasp will buzz to $75 million-$85 million this weekend. (The first one opened to $57.2 million.)

-Also, miss me with all this talk that she should play Rey’s mother. Hard pass.

James Woods, who often spouts ultra-right, pro-Trump sentiments, was abruptly dropped by his agent on the 4th of July because the agent was “feeling patriotic.”

Anne Hathaway fangirling over Jake Gyllenhaal on Instagram made my day.

-Batman fans are super angry about the latest issue.

-I really liked this NYT profile on Lakeith Stanfield, who is promoting Sorry to Bother You. Vulture’s profile on the movie’s director, the awesomely named Boots Riley, is also great. (Apparently the movie’s ending is a real head-scratcher though.)

-I am so here for The Spy Who Dumped Me.

Johnny Depp Looks Unwell In Fan Photos

Johnny Depp‘s fans (wait, he still has those?) are concerned for his health after a series of photos of him surfaced on social media. A source from his camp says there’s “no reason to be concerned.”

Nick Jonas is dating Quantico’s Priyanka Chopra? That’s…unexpected.

Pete Davidson *just* started dating Ariana Grande and already he got two tattoos dedicated to her: the Dangerous Woman bunny ears, and her initials. Yeah, this’ll turn out swell.

Woody Allen says he should be the #MeToo “poster boy”. “I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses and not a single one…have ever ever suggested any kind of impropriety at all.”  I couldn’t possibly nope this harder.

Janet Jackson  called police on Saturday to check on the welfare of her 17-month-old-old son, Eissa, who was with the singer’s estranged husband, Wissam Al Mana. According to Janet’s brother Randy, the child’s nanny was “terrified by [Al Mana’s] behavior and locked herself in a bathroom, so she could contact Janet.”

Sara Gilbert talked about Rosanne’s cancellation on The Talk. “I am sad for the people who lost their jobs in the process. However, I do stand behind the decision that ABC made.”

-Joshua Jackson has a new girlfriend and it’s not me. I wonder if my boss will let me take a personal day to process this news?

-Paramount has dropped that Heathers reboot from its schedule. Although it’s being shopped around, a show about violence at a high school is probably never going to see the light of day.

-Orange Is the New Black’s Laura Prepon married Ben Foster this weekend.

Tom Cruise shared an insane video detailing an air jump stunt from the new Mission Impossible. He became the first actor to complete a Halo jump.

-This interview with Lee Pace in which he talks about coming out is worth your time.

-My Twitter feed went crazy this weekend after photos surfaced that apparently show Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson together. In other news, I need to follow different people.

-I kind of love that the Big Little Liars cast got together to go bowling and watch Shailene Woodley‘s new film. I wonder if Nicole Kidman has ever bowled before, or if Meryl Streep had to show her how?

-One of my goals this summer is to finish the last season of HBO’s Insecure because I think that show is a goddamn delight and I want to watch it all, but life got in the way. The teaser for season 3 is only re-confirming that for me.

John Mayer talked to Andy Cohen about his dating woes and came to the slow realization that all of Cohen’s famous friends probably have Mayer blacklisted because of his history with women: “You know Jennifer Lawrence and she just doesn’t wanna have anything to do with me.”

-Once again, the THR supporting acting class photo is fascinating. There’s lots of worthy inclusions (The Good Place’s D’arcy Carden, The Handmaid’s Tale’s Yvonne Strahovski, Better Things’ Celia Imrie, Barry’s Anthony Carrigan, Insecure’s Yvonne Orji, Atlanta’s Lakeith Stanfield, The Americans’ Holly Taylor, This Is Us’ Susan Kelechi Watson), but a couple of them are total huhs?

-When you invite Gwen Stefani to your wedding and the DJ starts playing “Hollaback Girl,” you damn well expect her to dance.

-I love this article about all of the Met Gala gowns in Ocean’s 8.

-Speaking of fashion and pop culture, I also love this piece on how Carrie Bradshaw’s tutu and clingy top ensemble perfectly encapsulated the central conflict of Sex and the City: Can you be both fairy princess heroine AND a modern sexpot?

January Jones might have just pulled into the lead for the worst outfit of 2018.

-Ok, so this makes me think that Renee actually was a spy on The Americans.

-This isn’t good: Solo had a massive second weekend drop despite no real competition. Also, Star Wars in general is developing a China problem. It will have trouble getting to $20M, and even bombs like Ghost in the Shell and Passengers did better there.

Chris Hemsworth is already hyping the next Infinity War movie and I just can’t.  This is why I’m looking forward to Ant Man 2, with its nice, self-contained story and Paul Rudd‘s ageless mug.

-I tend to shy away from horror, but the Suspiria trailer (from the Call My By Your Name director and starring Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton) is pretty damn great.

-It would have been the best trailer of the day (week? month?) if the Widows trailer didn’t drop an hour after it. From 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen and Gone Girl’s Gillian Flynn, it tells the story of four women who must settle a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. Check out this cast: Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Carrie Coon, Jon Bernthal and more. And as if that wasn’t enough to convince me, Viola Davis’ line reading of “They don’t think we have the BALLS to pull this off!” sealed the deal.
