Seth-Rogen-British-GQ

-In his British GQ cover story, Seth Rogen talks about his new weed business and confirms reports that Emma Watson stormed off the set of This Is The End — but he understood why she was uncomfortable over the super edgy scene. “I mean, I don’t look back on that and think, ‘How dare she do that?’ You know? I think sometimes when you read something, when it comes to life it doesn’t seem to be what you thought it was. But it was not some terrible ending to our relationship. She came back the next day to say goodbye. She helped promote the film. No hard feelings and I couldn’t be happier with how the film turned out in the end.”

Lil Nax X‘s new music video is giving “WAP” a run for its money when it comes to horniness levels. That lap dance with the devil? Whooo boy!

-Speaking of eyebrow-raising music videos, Demi Lovato is set to recreate her overdose in her upcoming video for “Dancing with the Devil.”

-Congrats to Emma Stone, who welcomed her first child with SNL director Dave McCary.

-Meanwhile, Prince Albert called out Harry and Meghan for their Oprah interview, saying it “”wasn’t the appropriate forum to be able to have these kinds of discussions.”

-I liked this piece on the Oscars, the movie business, and how the last year was much more than just a blip in the history of Hollywood.

-So basically everyone who’s ever been on Grey’s Anatomy is coming back this season, huh?

-I know I keep complaining that Hollywood has no new ideas, but I legit squealed when I read that an Ally McBeal revival is in the works, with Calista Flockhart possibly reprising her role.

Maya Rudolph played the mimic challenge on the Tonight Show and crushed it.

-She’s also hosting SNL this weekend.

-There’s lots of talk about whether Meghan McCain should leave The View. I can’t imagine they want her to; she generates headlines for them almost every week.

-Here’s the first trailer for Amazon’s Frank of Ireland, starring Domhnall and Brian Gleeson.

-I don’t know if it’s because I find Margot Robbie so charming as Harley Quinn, or if the CW has worn me down when it comes to King Shark, or if it’s the Idris Elba of it all, or if it’s just John Cena’s arms, but I really dig the trailer for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. I don’t even know who I am anymore.

 

Prince George Turns 7

Kate Middleton and Prince William shared two adorable new photographs of Prince George in honour of his seventh birthday. I love the one in the camo shirt!

Prince Harry‘s team is calling claims he mishandled Royal funds “deeply offensive.”

Kim Kardashian posted an IG story about Kanye West, citing his bipolar diagnosis and asking for compassion and empathy. It was incredibly well-written and sympathetic, but this part made me fear that she’s still onboard with his presidential run: “Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.”

-People magazine is reporting that both Kim and Kanye are considering divorce. E! News says the pair have been spending time apart.

Jamie Lynn Spears defended her sister Britney after a commenter posted about her “obvious mental illness.” Jamie replied: “You have no right to assume anything about my sister, and I have NO right to speak about HER health and personal matters.

Dave Grohl penned an article for The Atlantic on how teachers need to be protected when schools reopen.

-Meanwhile, Dave‘s daughter can sing!

This is a good piece on how Dave Franco praising three ’90s romcoms (all by white filmmakers) and talking about how he wants to “elevate” the genre ignores the BIPOC voices already refreshing this genre. I don’t know how you can look at the romcom resurgence of the last few years — with movies like Always Be My Maybe, The Big Sick, The Lovebirds, and Crazy Rich Asians — and think you need to jump in and make it better.

-In an interview with Katy Perry, Howard Stern brought up Orlando Bloom‘s nude paddleboating pics from a few years ago. She told him: “It was Europe! We had had a pretty chill time and everywhere we looked, it was like ‘Everybody was naked! It was Europe! It was Italy!’ and I think he wanted to fit in with the locals.”

-Speaking of Orlando Bloom, he confirmed that his missing dog has passed away.

-I’m iffy with Aaron Sorkin joints, but these photos of his new movie The Trial of the Chicago 7 has me intrigued, mostly because the cast is so stacked: Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Frank Langella, and Jeremy Strong.

Donald Glover is reportedly reprising his role as Lando Calrissian in a future Star Wars series for Disney+.

-I love this article on guys starting a romance book club. I never understood why more dudes don’t read romance; it’s basically a how to guide for what women want.

Romany Malco and Regina Hall star in Tijuana Jackson: Purpose Over Prison.

vogue-ariana-grande

-In her new Vogue cover story, Ariana Grande reflects on her short-lived relationship with Pete Davidson. “My friends were like, ‘Come [to New York]! We’re gonna have a fun summer.’ And then I met Pete, and it was an amazing distraction. It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn’t know him.” She also released a new video.

-In her Cosmopolitan cover storyMariah Carey talks about getting married to music executive Tommy Mottola when she was 23 and he was 44. “You might want to picture a child bride. There was a conscious effort to keep me as this all-American, whatever that means, girl. It was very controlled. There was no ­freedom for me as a human being. It was almost like being a prisoner.”

Serena Williams‘ cheeky Harper’s Bazaar cover photo is amazing – and unretouched!

-The September edition of Vogue is a very big deal — and Meghan Markle is set to guest edit the British version.

Katherine McPhee and David Foster‘s wedding got a Vogue spread. Huh. I would have bet on People magazine.

Aziz Ansari’s Netflix special starts and ends with reflections on getting caught up in the #MeToo movement — but in between he seems to pretend it never happened.

Evan Rachel Wood thinks Chief Hopper on Stranger Things is a problematic TV love interest. I mean, sure he was really grumpy this last season, but out of all the morally questionable dudes on TV right now, this seems like a strange target.

-I love this clip of Winona Ryder refusing to listen to David Harbour make fun of his size.

Kristen Bell says she will keep making Veronica Mars as long as they let her. And we’ll keep watching it!

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul debuted their tequila collab and everyone’s like “cool but what about Breaking Bad tho?”

-Netflix just took another big (but expected) hit: Friends is officially leaving Netflix and moving to WarnerMedia’s streaming service — the terribly named HBO Max. As the TV critic for the New York Times tweeted: “The fact that the biggest story in TV over the next year will be a competition among the decades-old sitcom reruns on streaming TV services really sums up something about pop culture right now.”

-I’m pretty over the Disney remakes, but good on them for not making the new Mulan movie a shot-for-shot remake, and for dropping the original’s problematic characters and songs.
