Cardi B Talks Farts and Family with Vogue

Cardi B did 73 Questions with Vogue, and she really takes you on a journey. Culture somehow manages to stay sleeping during the whole thing while her mom talks about smelling her own farts, meeting Beyonce, loving Offset‘s penis, and her questions for Trump. It’s shot at her grandmother’s apartment in NYC, which is by far the most normal-looking place that Vogue has every done one of these.

-Sources say Brad Pitt and Arrested Development star Alia Shawkat are not dating. Wait, was that even a possibility?!

Pete Davidson and Kaia Gerber were spotted kissing in public. Not enough people are talking about the fact that he is a grown ass 26 year old and she *just* turned 18.

Helena Bonham Carter is on a promo tour for the new season of The Crown, and it’s been an absolute delight. On Colbert, she spilled the tea on her co-stars including Colin Firth (“talks too much”), Rihanna (“could never understand a word she said”) and Sacha Baron Cohen (“he has emotional issues”).

-The Grammy nominations are out. It was a good morning for Lizzo, Billie Eillish, Lil Nas X and Bon Iver. Not so much for Taylor Swift, Halsey, Solange Knowles, The Jonas Brothers and BTS.

-Meanwhile, People decided the best royal angle for their latest cover story is the William and Harry rift. Sure, Jan.

Emilia Clarke says on the Game of Thrones set, Jason Momoa made sure directors didn’t take advantage of her during nude scenes and made sure she always had a robe between setups. “It’s only now that I realize how fortunate I was with that…because Jason had experience, he had done a bunch of stuff before coming on to this, he was like, ‘Sweetie, this is how it’s meant to be and this is how it’s not meant to be, and I’m going to make sure that’s the way it goes.”

-The Harriet screenwriter says a movie exec once suggested Julia Roberts should play Harriet Tubman. (Somewhere out there Scarlett Johansson is wondering why they didn’t think of her.)

Robert Pattinson said he would pass the time in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia shooting The Lighthouse by reading sex shop Yelp reviews. “There were two pretty highly frequented sex shops…So many people would write about it and this is a town of maybe 400 people — well, maybe a little more than 400. But I could meet these people in the local shop if I wanted to.”

-In the latest Actors on Actors interview, Florence Pugh and Beanie Feldstein bond over Lizzie McGuire and That’s So Raven.

-Oof. I like a lot of Mimi Leder‘s work (she exec produced The Leftovers) but her dismal of the critical reception of The Morning Show is way off. “I thought there were a lot of Apple haters who just wanted Apple to fail. The reviews felt like an attack on Apple.” That would only make sense if critics panned all Apple shows, but every TV writer I follow seems to be in love with Dickinson.

Jennifer Lopez will be hosting SNL in December (yay!), as will Scarlett Johansson (boo!).

-Um, is Harrison Ford doing a dog movie?!? (I know it’s based on Jack London’s book, but it’s still a goddamn dog movie.)

Miley Cyrus is on vocal rest after undergoing surgery, so expect her IG stories to be 76% less problematic than usual.

Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans did an Actors on Actors interview, in which they talked about Avengers, A Marriage Story, Knives Out and Scorsese’s comments about Marvel.

-Meanwhile, Chadwick Boseman suggested Scorsese’s timing of his comments is suspect. “You’ve got to think about when he’s saying it. He’s saying it when he’s possibly campaigning for an award. He’s saying it at a time when he’s making a Netflix movie, so that’s how eyes get on his film, and it’s not going to be in the cinemas—it’s not going to be seen the best way.”

Beanie Feldstein‘s comedy How to Build a Girl (which I really liked at TIFF) was bought by IFC.

-10 days after AppleTV Plus launched, the head of scripted programming is leaving. Peak streaming is going fine, guys.

-Meanwhile, Disney+ launches tomorrow, and no one seems to know what to do. (I’m sure millions of people downloading an app and logging in for the first time all at once will go incredibly smoothly.)

-The order of the rankings on these types of lists always bug me, but overall The AV Club’s compilation of the 100 best shows of the 2010s is pretty spot on.

-Have you read Daisy Jones & the Six yet? Get on it before Amazon’s adapted series comes out.

-I love that Blumhouse is doing so well, but man all of their movie trailers give me the scares. Lucy Hale, Maggie Q, Michael Peña, and Portia Doubleday star in Fantasy Island.

Lizzo brought Macaulay Culkin on stage during her L.A. concert last night and it was quite adorable.

Scarlett Johansson says isn’t going to let Michael Che anywhere near Colin Jost’s bachelor party, which seems like good planning.

Keira Knightley revealed that she gave birth to a baby girl six weeks ago that she named Delilah.

Ken Loach is the latest old school filmmaker to crap on Marvel movies. (At least his comments seem to be more about the current movie marketplace and what opportunities filmmakers are getting shut out of as blockbusters become the status quo, which is more understandable than the crotchety “it’s not good” refrain.)

-It’s hilarious that during the CW crossover filming, someone always seems to fall asleep during a scene. Previously it was Melissa Benoist, this year it’s Stephen Amell.

Lori Loughlin and other parents were just hit with additional charges in the college admissions scandal.

-In this clip from her new Netflix special, Jenny Slate explains football and suddenly everything makes sense.

-I get that everyone loves Kawhi, but what a weird and cringey way to promote the new Terminator movie.

-You’re damn right I’m gonna watch this Netflix holiday teen movie. I’m gonna watch it so hard.

-The final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is pretty damn good, guys. (I also enjoyed Mallory Rubin’s reaction to it.)
