Rihanna Gets Colourful on Harper’s Bazaar Cover

Rihanna Harper’s Bazaar

Rihanna looks amazing in Chanel, Dior and Givenchy Haute Couture in her new Harper’s Bazaar photo shoot. I cannot stop looking at these photos.

-Speaking of amazing photo shoots, Keiynan Lonsdale in Vogue took my breath away.

-Time’s 100 most influential people issue is here, which features Taylor Swift (with a tribute written by Shawn Mendes), Sandra Oh (with a tribute written by Shonda Rhimes), Dwayne Johnson (with a tribute written by Gal Gadot), Regina King (with a tribute written by Voila Davis), Brie Larson (with a tribute written by Tessa Thompson), Lady Gaga (with a tribute written by Celine Dion), Emilia Clarke (with a tribute written by Emma Thompson) and more.

Lori Loughlin‘s camp took her sob story to People. Because of course.

Beyonce shocked everyone by dropping a surprise live album to coincide with her new Netflix documentary, ensuring that no one in the entire world did any work today.

-Look, I’m fully aware that this entire article was likely ghost-written by her PR team, but I’m still here for all the Jennifer Garner comeback pieces.

Madonna‘s new single “Medellin” is here. It took a few listens but now I dig it.

Britney Spears‘ mother is not doing much to reassure us that her daughter is fine. She posted about how “the battle is not over” and then liked posts about Britney being put in a mental care facility against her will.  What’s happening??

-Ugh, when asked about Rey’s parents, J.J. Abrams said Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will show us “there’s more to the story than you’ve seen.” This is why I’m concerned with Abrams regaining control. He adores his mystery boxes, but the reason that The Last Jedi was so powerful is because Rian Johnson introduced the notion that anyone could be a Jedi — even if you’re parents are nobody. It opened up the Force (kind of like the Buffy finale opened up slayerhood). Why destroy that, especially in the final chapter of a trilogy that established it?

-Huzzah! Emma Thompson and Paul Rudd will host SNL this season.

Louis Tomlinson broke his silence following his sister’s sudden death to thank fans for their support.

-I really liked actor John Bradley’s take on Sam Tarly’s scenes in the Game of Thrones premiere. Sam is not only one of the purest characters, he’s often also the audience surrogate. So if Sam doesn’t like Dany, that doesn’t bode well for her.

-Meanwhile, the Gay of Thrones recaps by Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness continue to be the most entertaining thing about the show.

-I love The Cut editors’ review of Adam Driver’s new Broadway play based on his hotness, which includes lines like “it’s a really immense, thigh-forward experience” and “I was so flustered by his quads that at one point I spilled all of the contents of my purse on the floor.”

-Dead to Me, Netflix’s new show starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini, is getting good reviews.

-Oof. The final trailer for X Men: Dark Phoenix does nothing to convince me that this film won’t be a mess.

Chris Evans Says Goodbye To Captain America

Chris Evans covers the new issue of the Hollywood Reporter, where he talks about saying goodbye to the Avengers (“It’s a really obnoxious notion for an actor to say they’re going to retire — it’s not something you retire from”), what he’s looking for in a relationship (“I really like to be with someone who also has their own thing to do as well, you know? If I’m with someone who just kind of adopts my life, that can feel a bit suffocating”) and why he’ll never stop shit-talking Trump on Twitter (“You don’t want to alienate half your audience. But I’d be disappointed in myself if I didn’t speak up”).

-Sources are telling People that Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson are talking about marriage. I don’t understand life.

Justin Bieber is having a rough week. The poor kid announced that he’s taking a break from music for his mental health, and now a woman was arrested after barging into his hotel room.

Beyonce helped Diana Ross celebrate her 75th with an impromptu serenade of “Happy Birthday.”

-The NYT’s 10 Things I Hate About You oral history just made this week 1000% better.

Seth Rogen is launching a Canadian cannabis company, which is very on brand.

Sandra Oh‘s SNL promos are very cute. Also, Russian Doll bangs are a thing now, huh?

-Speaking of Russian Doll, the show’s Charlie Barnett just landed a spot on season two of You.

-I like this profile on Jordan Peele. MadTV’s producers wouldn’t let him out of his contract to be on SNL, he says he locked himself in a room & started smoking a lot of weed, plotting his revenge, “like a comic book supervillain.”

-People are sooo mad at Jezebel’s very bad take on Jagged Little Pill. (Alanis Morissette is probably too busy to care. She just announced she’s expecting her third kid.)

-I like this piece about how stressful TV is now because you can now longer just be a viewer; you must be a preacher, a soldier and a campaign strategist to keep your show alive.

-This is a really good recap on what we know about the Jussie Smollett saga. I still think its weird that he agreed to not get back his $10k bond.

-There’s a Sex and the City sequel in the works because Hollywood has no new ideas.

-I did way too well on the quiz about whether it’s a TV ship name or a prescription drug. (Also, I didn’t know that The Walking Dead’s Glenn and Maggie ship name was Gleggie. They deserved better.)

-Barry returns to HBO Sunday and the second season is reportedly even better than the first. I don’t know how that’s possible, but I’ll take it.

-Villanelle escapes the hospital in the final Killing Eve trailer.

-Netflix has a new show coming out about disabled gay man played by an actual disabled gay man — and it looks delightful!

Bradley Cooper Joined Lady Gaga Onstage for Surprise Duet

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were shut out of the SAGs, but they made up for it when he joined her on stage in Vegas for a surprise duet of “Shallow.

-The SAG Awards were a pretty low-key affair last night, but at least the red carpet was pretty.

-In case you missed last night’s telecast, the best speeches are here: from Chadwick Boseman and Sandra Oh.

-This is Us won best TV ensemble, but really I’d rather watch Sterling K Brown and his wife’s victory clap than another episode of that show.

-Though Black Panther won the top prize at the SAGs, it doesn’t change much for the Oscars because it doesn’t tend to be a great predictor.  The SAG winner has gone on to win the best picture Oscar in only 11 of 23 years. It’s still probably Roma vs Green Book.

-Wait, now the Oscars might drop Best Cinematography from the telecast? Come on!

Liam Hemsworth talked about his “spur-of-the-moment” wedding to Miley Cyrus.

-Yay for Mindy Kaling! Her new movie Late Night broke Sundance records when it was bought for $13M by Amazon Studios. I love how she talked about it: “I wrote it for Emma Thompson. A person I did not know! So I was just this creep in my home writing fan fiction movie for me and Emma Thompson, a woman I don’t know, hoping she would one day read it.”

-The four-hour Michael Jackson documentary premiered to a standing ovation at Sundance, and his estate is already fighting back.

Freida Pinto says L’Oreal lightened her skin in an ad campaign. “I said to my agent after the first controversy that I would like to see the pictures before, and I would like to be able to question them on colour correction.”

-Last night’s Rent Live wasn’t actually live because the guy who played Roger broke his foot at the second dress rehearsal and apparently they’ve never heard of understudies or wheelchair. It ended up getting the lowest ratings ever for a live musical so far.

-Who needs to wait for the Super Bowl to see the ads? Here is Cardi B’s Pepsi ad, while Carrie Bradshaw and The Dude return in a Stella Artois ad. (Because of course Carrie would drink beer?!?)

Diane Kruger says Norman Reedus has been teaching her a lot about how to stay calm as a parent.

-Freeform is teaming with Laurence Fishburne to tell the story of Black Panther Party leader Elaine Brown and her daughter, Ericka Suzanne. The Gilmore Girls-meet-The Black Panthers pitch has me intrigued.

-I’m glad Netflix picked up Brie Larson‘s directorial debut, Unicorn Store. It got mixed reviews at TIFF but people seemed harsher to it than they needed to be.

Naomi Campbell‘s cover of British Vogue is everything!

Greg Berlanti, with a record 15 scripted series currently on the air, just landed his third pilot order of the season and his first at Fox. I mean, I love a lot of his shows but my god give someone else a shot, Hollywood!

-I’m not sure how I feel about Barry getting a season 2 (mostly because I adored how the first season ended), but this trailer is good.

-The only thing I know about Birds of Prey is from the CW which is … uh… not good. So I appreciated this explainer, because this teaser has me very excited. Chris Messina’s hair alone bought my ticket.
