Emily-Blunt-Marie-Claire

Emily Blunt covers the new issue of Marie Claire, and the interview is great — mostly because it’s conducted by an 11-year-old boy who wants to know how she overcame stuttering. The (very good) cover image was shot by a 17-year-old.

Justin Bieber‘s week on The Late Late Show continued last night. He was asked to rank wife Hailey’s friends (Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne) or eat bull penis. He was quick to rank them: Kendall, Gigi, Cara, saying “Here’s the thing … I know Kendall the best. I’ve spent the most time with Kendall. She’s a good friend of ours. I haven’t spent a lot of time with Gigi, and I haven’t spent a lot of time with Cara.” Not long after, Cara posted the video on her IG with the caption “If you have nothing against me, then why don’t you unblock me? Love you @haileybieber – he should have just eaten the bull penis.”

-Also, Ben apparently deleted his Raya profile.

-Out of all the networks to present at the TCAs in the past two weeks, it feels like Hulu was the one to premiere the best trailers.
