Gal Gadot Talks Marriage and Motherhood in Vogue

Gal Gadot vogue

Gal Gadot covers Vogue, and though she doesn’t address her much-ridiculed “Imagine” video, she does talk about meeting her husband: “In the desert at this chakra/yoga retreat type of party. And he was too cool for school. Like, we were in the same group of friends but I didn’t know him and he didn’t know me. And something happened kind of from the first moment we started talking. When we got home, I was like, ‘Is this too early to call you? I want to have a date.’ Then we go out, and by the second date he told me, ‘I’m going to marry you. I’m going to wait for two years, but we’re going to get married.’ I was like, ‘Fine.'”

-In a new chat with Amy Schumer in Interview, Selena Gomez talks about how tabloids would spin it every time she stepped away from the spotlight. “The way the media has sometimes tried to explain things has made it sound really bad, when in reality there’s nothing wrong with the fact that I needed to go away or that I fell in love. I had to start opening up because people were taking away my narrative, and it was killing me.”

-Meanwhile, Selena just nabbed Tom Petty’s L.A. mansion for $5 million.

Diddy hosted a celeb-packed dance-a-thon to raise money for healthcare workers and his ex Jennifer Lopez made an appearance (she still calls him “Puffy”). But Diddy was not here for Lizzo‘s performance and cut it off early. “It’s Easter Sunday. Let’s play something a little bit family friendly.” He later clarified: “When I stopped the music it was because it had a lot of curses in there. Not because she was twerking. She’s one of the best twerkers in the world.”

-Speaking of charity IG Lives, Rihanna did one and warned fans to quit asking about new music. “If one of y’all motherf–kers asks me about the album one more time when I’m trying to save the world, unlike y’all president… on sight.” She’s not wrong.

-I watched the Tiger King reunion special so you don’t have to.

-My favorite part of this interview is when Ellen Pompeo is pretty blunt about how she preferred the early seasons of Grey’s Anatomy. “The show back then was just so, so, so, so good. I wish we had an appreciation for it then about how good it was. I don’t think we did, I don’t think any of us did. There was too much shit going on. It was too big, it was too hot, it was too fast and there was just so much going on in the beginning…I wish we had appreciated it for really how good it was, because — man, the show was fantastic back then.”

-While talking to Variety, novelist and showrunner Michael Chabon went off on a tangent about what he originally wanted Picard to be like, and as someone who has given up on that show, oh how I wish he’d have stuck with it: “I always said if we could have just done a whole show about Picard and the dog on the vineyard in France, with no starships, no phasers, the only Romulans would be those two Romulans who work for him on the vineyard, and no politics — just, like, there’s a funfair down in the village and they all go, and maybe Picard solves a very low stakes mystery in the village, like, someone has stolen the antique bell out of the bell tower, or something like that?”
