Justin Bieber Talks “Tough” Year of Marriage

Justin-Bieber-GQ

Justin Bieber is on the new cover of GQ, and he talks about his marriage to Hailey Baldwin (“The first year of marriage was really tough because there was a lot going back to the trauma. There was just a lack of trust. There was all these things that you don’t want to admit to the person that you’re with, because it’s scary. You don’t want to scare them off by saying, ‘I’m scared'”), on having children (“Not this second, but we will eventually”) and his faith (“He is grace. Every time we mess up, He’s picking us back up every single time. That’s how I view it. And so it’s like, ‘I made a mistake. I won’t dwell in it. I don’t sit in shame. But it actually makes me want to do better'”).

-Meanwhile, Gaga was spotted wearing a poufy white wedding dress on the set of the Gucci movie.

I like to watch TV or just doze, not thinking about anything. I’m sorry to say I’m really enjoying quarantine. I don’t have to see anybody. I can just stay home 24 hours a day in bed, my favorite place.”

Kevin Smith‘s new horror movie will be sold as an NFT. The Daily did a whole podcast today about NFTs, and I still don’t get the appeal.

-The creators of Netflix’s Shadow and Bone adaptation promise they’ve improved Mal, one of the book’s most problematic characters. The Shadow and Bone books were ok, but honestly I’m excited to watch this show because it’s also going to feature characters from the sequel series Six of Crows, which were MUCH better books.

-Here’s the trailer for the final season of Shrill starring Aidy Bryant.

-There’s nothing like a classic Friday afternoon news dump! According to Page Six, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have called off their two-year engagement.  (People and E! News is also reporting it.) There’s been rumours of trouble ever since that mess with Southern Charm’s Madison.

-The weekend is here! Celebrate by gazing on these glorious photos of Lady Gaga feeding Adam Driver.

-In his Men’s Health cover story, Michael B. Jordan talks about those rumours that his romance with Lori Harvey is a PR stunt. “I can’t do anything about that, and I’ve just got to accept that and keep moving in my purpose. People that know me know my heart. But people that know me for my work…they know what I allow them to know. The fact that I’ve been so closed off about a lot of parts of my life was a personal choice. As I’ve gotten older and a little more mature and comfortable in my own skin, I’ve become less concerned about it.”

Yara Shahidi was honoured in Glamour UK’s Women of the Year Awards. I watched The Sun Is Also A Star last weekend and spent the whole movie mesmerized by her face.

-Sad there’s no new WandaVision dropping today? A new Disney+ documentary takes viewers inside the making of the show.

-I really like this point about criticisms of Wanda not facing consequences for what she did to Westview. How many fans are calling for Clint to be held accountable for his crimes? Or Tony? Or Bucky?

-Full reviews for Falcon and the Winter Solider are still under embargo, but critics have taken to Twitter to share their initial reactions to the first episode — and it’s all very positive. It sound like it’s going to be much more of a shoot ’em up adventure show than WandaVision was, but there are still some quiet character moments.

Sharon Osbourne is now apologizing for supporting Piers Morgan. “To anyone of colour that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said, I am truly sorry.” Her initial meltdown in this clip was textbook white privilege: demanding a Black woman explain racism to her, centering the issue on herself, and weaponizing her tears.

-Ohhhh, people are so mad at Grey’s Anatomy after last night’s episode!

Rebekah Weatherspoon‘s Cowboys of California trilogy is being optioned for TV. Two years ago when I made a concerted effort to stop reading books with only white protags, it lead me to romance (’cause that’s really the only genre that is crushing it, diversity-wise) and this series was the first one I read all the way through.

-Meanwhile, Page Six claims Hammer allegedly gave Jessica Ciencin Henriquez the big bruise she posted on Instagram during their brief summer romance.

Emma Caulfield and Clare Kramer are the latest Buffy alums to support Charisma Carpenter‘s statement calling out Joss Whedon‘s on-set abuse. It’s been a day and the male actors who’ve worked with Whedon have remained conspicuously silent. (Some of their reputations may hint at why.)  The only guy who seems to have addressed it so far is Anthony Head, who played Giles. He told a morning show he had no idea and felt like he “let down” his costars: “I have been up most of the night just running through my memories thinking ‘What did I miss?’. This is not a man saying ‘I didn’t see it so it didn’t happen’. I am gutted, I’m seriously gutted because one of my memories, my fondest memory was the fact that it was so empowering.”

-This is a good piece on Ryan Reynolds and his side-hustle prowess.

-Much like everyone calls Anne Hathaway “Annie,” Katherine Heigl says everyone in her life calls her “Katie.” “No one calls me Katherine…It helps me separate my work from me.”
