Rihanna is on the cover of Vogue Italia’s DIY issue, and she lived up to the title by doing her own photography and styling.

-I was already excited for Loki, but this interview with the showrunner sealed it. He not only references The Leftovers and Mad Men as inspiration, but he’s not into this “it’s a 6-hour movie” crap that people who come to TV from films often pedal. “It was important that every episode stood alone. The Leftovers or Watchmen, which I admired so much—every one of those episodes felt like a distinct short story. That’s the sign of a great episode of TV.”

-Meanwhile, this is some pretty great social media marketing for Loki. A handle for a character called Miss Minutes, mascot of the Marvel’s Time Variance Authority, tweeted a coded message which Twitter worked out to mean “once I escape this hell prison they call the TVA I swear I’m gonna burn everything to the ground.”

-On the same day DeuxMoi posted a blind item about a Star Wars actor storming off the set of his Netflix show because he didn’t like a script, Netflix announced that John Boyega has exited the movie Rebel Ridge mid-shoot due to “family reasons”

Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber are among those impressed with Dave in the season 2 trailer. I don’t think I finished the first season but it’s a fun, weird little show.

-Critics are raving about Bo Burnham Netflix special. Here’s a clip.

-HBO says nearly 3m people watched the Mare of Easttown finale, tripling the ratings of its premiere. This is what happens when you air a show week to week and allow word of mouth to work, instead of dumping all episodes at once.

-Speaking of Mare, I loved this podcast interview she did with The Watch guys. She’d appeared on the podcast when she was doing the initial press rounds on the show, and she liked their questions so much she requested to come back to talk about the finale.

-I can’t believe there’s another Boss Baby movie but here we are. Love seeing Amy Sedaris getting paid though.

-Here’s the final Black Widow teaser before it debuts July 9.

-A new clip from F9 sees the crew trying to escape baddies and landmines in a jungle.

-The first trailer for Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain, which details the late chef’s life and was directed by Oscar winner Morgan Neville, has been released. This made me tear up, and I really hope movie theatres are open here when it comes out because this feels like a good reason to return.

The One Where Friends Reunited

-The first full trailer for the Friends reunion has arrived. This actually looks quite good (there seems to be at least three venue changes, including a table read) but it’ll be interesting to see if they follow Fresh Prince’s lead and have some warts-and-all conversations.

Billy Porter opened up about his HIV-positive diagnosis  (which he’s kept secret since 2007) in an interview with THR. “My purpose, my calling, my ministry is about this conversation we’re having. Because the world needs to know what HIV-positive looks like.”

A$AP Rocky confirmed that he’s in a serious relationship with Rihanna. “[She] amounts to probably, like, a million of the other ones … I think when you know, you know. She’s the One.”

Demi Lovato surprised fans with an early morning announcement: they identify as non-binary.

Prince Harry will reportedly drop more ‘truth bombs‘ in his new Apple series with Oprah. I just listened to his podcast with Dax Shepard and was surprised at how candid he was, especially about how his father’s parenting style messed him up.

-Johnny Depp is at it again. He’s now asking the courts to order ACLU to show proof that Amber Heard donated her divorce settlement​ to them like she said she would.

-I’m surprised how underwhelmed I am by the Lollapalooza lineup. It’s in July, making it the first full capacity music festival we’ve seen in ages.

-Wow, I wasn’t expecting to love Ashton Kutcher and Mila KunisLA farmhouse as much as I do. Those ceilings!

-Bless Variety for breaking down all the Erika Jayne drama.

-One of Danny Masterson’s accusers delivered nearly six hours of tearful testimony at a preliminary hearing to determine if a trial will be ordered. She claimed the actor drugged and raped her at gunpoint.

Marilyn Manson faces new a lawsuit, this one from his former assistant alleging sexual assault.

-The reviews for Netflix’s Master of None Season 3 seem to indicate it’s slow and boring.

-Wouldn’t it be great if Happy Endings being on Netflix leads to a resurgence for that show?

-I liked this profile on John Krasinski, which follows the making of the much-delayed A Quiet Place Part II.

-Here’s Jennifer Hudson as Aretha Franklin in the Respect trailer.

Henry Cavill and Natalie Viscuso Go Instagram Official

Henry Cavill posted a sweet picture with girlfriend Natalie Viscuso — and the internet immediately uncovered an old episode of My Super Sweet 16 that she appeared in.

-She reportedly flew to UK to be with him earlier this year while he was filming the second season of The Witcher. Getting on an airplane right now must mean it’s love.

-Congrats to Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song, who welcomed their first child together – a baby boy named after his late sister, Dakota.

According to his lawyerHarvey Weinstein is nearly blind, experiencing cardiac issues and has had four teeth removed.

-The Talk returned today for its first episode in a month, and Sheryl Underwood talked about her heated exchange with Sharon Osbourne that led to the hiatus. “I feel like I’ve been in, like, PTSD because it was a trauma, and I feel like I want to get past this because I really wanted to get back to work with my friends and my colleagues and the crew … but I also wanted to get back to the audience,” she said. “I didn’t want to escalate things with Sharon because I thought I was having a conversation with a friend, but also I knew I had to be an example for others to follow because I didn’t want to perceived as the angry black woman, and that really scared me.”

Lucy Liu has joined the Shazam sequel as the sister of Helen Mirren’s villainous character. How is this movie pulling a cast like this??

-Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams is still locked in that brutal custody battle. A judge has ordered them to go to “high conflict parenting class.”

Kanye West’s lawyers responded to Kim Kardashian‘s divorcing filing, agreeing with her that they should have joint custody of their four children and neither of them need spousal support.

This is a good piece on how celebrity bloggers Lainey Gossip and Perez Hilton have been reckoning with the awful stuff they wrote in the 2000s — and how they’re taking radically different paths in their apologies.

Daniel Dae Kim opened up to Vulture about his fight for fair pay on Hawaii Five-0, and whether he felt his costars were allies. “I think any time you have an ensemble of actors, everyone’s objectives are unique and individual. So it’s hard for me to collectively say whether they were allies in this. And I do know that the way things got spun by the end changed my relationships with them.”

-Thunder Force was really, really not good — but this Jodie Foster bit made me laugh.

Vanessa Carlton revealed she wrote “A Thousand Miles” abpout a “famous actor” who went to Juilliard — and her fans have guesses.

-I love the dress Anna Kendrick wore to the BAFTAs this weekend.

-Minari’s Youn Yuh-jung won best supporting actor and said she was happy to be recognized by British people because they’re “known as very snobbish people.” God, I love her with my whole heart.

-I gave up on Shameless years ago, but fans seem to be disappointed by last night’s series finale. Which is the exact opposite reaction that the Wynonna Earp finale seems to have garnered.

-The Friends reunion special finished filming this weekend.

Sebastian Stan promoted his new movie by posting a pic of his butt. Works for me!

Uzo Aduba is leading HBO’s In Treatment revival, which just got a new trailer and a May 23 premiere date.
