–Noah Centineo is doing promo, which means the final To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before Movie is about it hit! (Update: Netflix just announced it’ll come out on Feb 12 and dropped a trailer.)

(Also, the wild thing about this whole article is how few quotes are attributed to him. The reporter clearly likes him and they talk about a lot of topics, but most of his direct quotes are just short exclamations. It’s odd.)

-The fact that five different people sent me this Bridgerton duet TikTok is making me question my brand. (J/K; keep sending).
