Kim Kardashian: Attorney at Law?

Kim Kardashian Lawyer Vogue

-In her new Vogue cover storyKim Kardashian says that she’s studying to be a lawyer and plans to take her bar exam in 2020. I know everyone’s making fun of this but the woman is clearly intelligent enough, and she seems really passionate when talking about prison reform in the interview. She’s also eager to talk about Kanye West‘s mental health, saying “Right now everything is really calm. But we can definitely feel episodes coming, and we know how to handle them. For him, being on medication is not really an option, because it just changes who he is.”

-Console your teens: despite all the rumours, Selena Gomez is not dating a guy Niall Horan from 1D.

-Oof, the hubris of actors. Lori Loughlin reportedly thought the DA was bluffing so she rejected their first plea and now faces additional, more serious  charges.

-Looks like the US media is dealing with the royal rumours with some distraction tactics. People’s new cover story is all about William and Harry growing apart, while Us Weekly is focusing on Kate‘s strong bond with the Queen.

-Meanwhile, Meghan Markle continues to gather Hollywood heavyweights in her corner. Her latest supporter? Oprah! While promoting her Apple series on mental health that she’s partnering with Prince Harry on, Oprah said “I think she’s being portrayed unfairly, and I feel that if people really knew her they would know that she is not only everything we perceive of her in being graceful and dynamic in holding that position, but she just has a wonderful, warm, giving, loving heart. I think it’s very unfair.”

-In a new op-ed for Time, Angelina Jolie calls for the support of Afghan women’s rights and more female representation in Afghan government delegations during peace talks.

Emma Stone fangirls over BTS in her SNL promos.

-This season of The Good Fight has been phenomenal, but it’s about to get better when Christine Baranski and Audra McDonald perform a Prince duet. I love everything about that clip.

-I’m sort of excited for the return of Game of Thrones on Sunday. But I’m VERY excited for the return of Gay Of Thrones, the hilarious recaps by Queer Eye’s Jonathan.

-This Twitter thread on surreal celeb encounters is a delight. (Jackee Harry won with this response.)

-Foster the People and Imagine Dragons were beefing? Not gonna lie, I kind of thought they were the same band.

-I’m so glad that Special — the new Netflix show about a disabled gay man — is getting good reviews. I worry it’s going to be lost in the mix (especially because searching for “special” on Netflix results in a sea of comedy specials).

-I’m both happy and skeptical about Barry getting renewed for season 3 at HBO. Happy because season 2 is currently amazing; skeptical because the show went from asking “can this guy be redeemed?” to asking “when will this irredeemable guy get caught?” and I don’t know how long they can stretch that.

-We’re 100 days out from the new Lion King movie, so Disney dropped another trailer.

What’s Really Going On Between Prince William and Prince Harry?

-Pop culture writer Nicole Cliffe tweeted a speculative thread about the royal scandal  this weekend and it is one big pot of piping hot tea!

-Speaking of interesting Twitter threads about the royals, this is a good one on Meghan Markle’s coverage.

-So I guess those rumors that Emma Roberts has moved on from Evan Peters are true. She was photographed holding hands with Garrett Hedlund.

-This is a really interesting look at all the lawsuits surrounding Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” and the age of pop plagiarism.

-Meanwhile, Grande dined at one of my fave Montreal restaurants yesterday, and dropped a bisexual-teasing video today.

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin‘s big April Fool’s joke was a fake ultrasound image, which went over REAL well with his fanbase. .

-Congrats to Issa Rae, who got engaged to her longterm boyfriend.

Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson are still a thing? This will never not surprise me.

-HBO debuted a new new Game of Thrones promo this weekend.

Lupita Nyong’O has handled the controversy surrounding her inspiration for her Us character so, so well.

-Weirdly, I somehow follow a lot of people on Twitter who watch WWE, so I was a bit aware of how badly wrestlers were being treated. But this segment on John Oliver‘s Last Week Tonight was eye-opening.

-A Los Angeles police spokeswoman says a “huge” manhunt is underway to find the suspect who shot and killed rapper Nipsey Hussle on Sunday afternoon.

-This would *suck*: Lana Del Rey says she accidentally dropped her laptop in the studio and lost all the song files from her new album that was ready for release in the next few months.

-For the 20th anniversary of the premiere of Strangers With Candy, Stephen Colbert, Amy Sedaris and Paul Dinello look back on the early days of their friendship. I still can’t really believe that show made it on air. I loved it but it was so. out. there.

-This is good casting: Cillian Murphy is currently in talks to star alongside Emily Blunt in A Quiet Place 2.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar says he fired his mom as his manager when he was 19 and realized she didn’t know what she was doing.

-In today’s “networks need to know when to let shows die” news, Emily Bett Richards has announced she’s leaving Arrow before the end of its run. I think this bums me out even more than the announcement that the show will end with a 10-episode season because I thought they could wrap it all up well, but now it’s going to be a mess. Stephen Amell said he warned execs last year that he was done after this current season so my guess is the show was writing them both out (because her character is so integral to his story), while trying to figure out ways to keep the series going without its two leads, which is why there’s been a trillion new characters introduced this season. But when they realized the newbies weren’t catching on with the audience, they decided to scramble together a short final season and convinced Amell to do another 10 episodes for the crossover — but by then Rickards had already booked another gig.

-In any case, Amell’s IG post about her leaving is very sweet — and seems to have riled up the comic fanboys, so that’s always a plus.

-Speaking of superhero TV, Legends of Tomorrow returns tonight! I love that they tried to make the guy who played Biff in Back to the Future the big bad – but then they all fell in love with the actor so now he’s just a regular character.

Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini deal with grief in the trailer for Netflix’s new show Dead to Me.

-The cast for Jim Jarmusch‘s zombie comedy The Dead Don’t Die is insane: Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, and Selena Gomez.

Kanye West Goes to Washington

Kanye West and Trump are both so outrageous that it’s hard to be surprised by anything they do anymore. But their meeting today at the White House was bonkers. What even is this video? Can we all agree that Kanye is just all about empty provocation these days and probably doesn’t even believe what he’s saying? I mean, should we even care about what anyone whose iPhone password is just a serious of zeroes really thinks?

-Now Kid Rock is at the White House. This day just keeps getting better and better…

-Wait, does People’s new Lady Gaga cover story not actually include a new interview with Lady Gaga?

-I am very much appreciating Steve Carell’s transition into a silver fox.

Ryan Adams is butthurt by Mandy Moore‘s comments about their marriage.

-I watched the second episode of A Million Little things and damn, that show is bad. As this thread points out, it’s gruesome and gross.

-I was working from home today so I caught all of Dakota Johnson‘s segment on Ellen. I can’t tell if there’s just not a lot of there there, or if she just has an incredibly dry sense of humour but…oof. The only part that was halfway amusing was when Ellen made fun of her for not inviting her to her birthday party, and she responded by making fun of Ellen for asking about the pregnancy rumours.

-I’m already won over by the premise of Rebel Wilson‘s new movie: she’s trapped in a romcom and wooed by Chris Hemsworth.

-About this photo of Emily Bett Rickards: 1) I love her character’s new look. Witness protection, I’m guessing? 2) I love even more that she appears to have no idea when her show actually airs. Arrow doesn’t come back until Monday.

Julia Roberts tries to help Lucas Hedges escape his drug-dealing past in the trailer for Ben Is Back. The film festival buzz about this one is that the first half is an emotional family journey, and then it takes a weird turn.
