Megan Fox Stars in Machine Gun Kelly’s Video

Megan Fox ramps up rumours that she’s dating Machine Gun Kelly by cozying up to him in his new music video.

Zack Snyder will release his cut of Justice League on HBO Max — but not until next year. The news also confirms that the Snyder cut didn’t actually exist; they’re going to have to spend $20+ million on post-production. Which is HILARIOUS.

-The Ruby Rose/Batwoman saga continues to unfold. A source tells TV Line her quitting the show “wasn’t 100-percent her decision. It was a breakup. She wasn’t happy working on the show, and did that make her fun to work with? No. So everyone decided it would be in the best interests of the show, and for all concerned, if they parted ways. It just wasn’t a good fit.” Rob Salem, who used to be the TV critic for the Toronto Star, has an even more pointed take, tweeting: “Apparently, she was actually fired. Rumor has it she was generally loathed on set. “Sociopathic narcissist” was the phrase being bandied about. They put a happy face on it, but from what I hear, nobody will be sorry to see her go.”

-Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Stephanie Beatriz is already publicly petitioning for the role. Even though she’s played another character in the Arrowverse, I’d love for Bex Taylor-Klaus to have a shot.

-Meanwhile, The Flash cast did a Stars In the House Zoom reunion for charity last night, which is lovely but they did it at 8pm ET — their old timeslot and at the exact same time Stargirl was debuting on their network. The CW is filled with messiness, y’all.

-The Smash cast will reunite tonight to perform Bombshell in concert. The more that these cast reunions for charity take place every day, the more untenable the upcoming Friends reunion seems. Getting paid $3 million each to do what casts are now doing all the time for free to support good causes is an increasingly bad look.

Ryan Seacrest has blamed exhaustion and returned to work after this clip made people think he was having a stroke during American Idol.

-Amazing human being Sia confirmed she adopted two teenage sons who were aging out of foster care system.

Lorde says she’s been recording new music with Jack Antonoff and “the work is so fucking good, my friend.”

-This thread about the types of songs in Disney animated movies is kind of incredible.

-British Vogue got Kate Moss to demonstrate cooking a roast chicken (clearly shot pre-pandemic). Her comment at the end slays: “What happened to just being able to do a cover and not having to do any of this?”

-The world does not deserve Taika Waititi.

-I love this article on how it would be awesome if Brad Pitt and Alia Shawkat are actually dating: “Yes, Shawkat is young and beautiful, but she isn’t exactly the type of woman we’ve come to expect in the arms of aging actors in the midst of their midlife crises. She’s in her 30s; she’s Iraqi American; she’s not tall or ultra-skinny or blonde; she’s queer; she’s cool.”

-Spotify has fought against paying musicians what they deserve for years, but they ponied up $100 million for an exclusivity deal for Joe Rogan‘s podcast.

Alison Roman is “on temporary leave” as a food columnist for the New York Times after she made judgmental comments about fellow lifestyle influencers Chrissy Teigen and Marie Kondo. Teigen is not happy with the news, saying “it just sucks in every way.”

Julia Roberts, Hugh Jackman, and more celebs are handing over their social profiles to COVID-19 experts, which I love.

-This is a really extensive, interesting look at the costly efforts to restart film and TV production, including safety precautions, scheduling delays, extra VFX, and much more. Not only are the sky-high costs going to get higher, expect to see fewer location shoots, less guest stars and less crowd scenes with background extras. Zoe Kravitz also raises a good point about how COVID-19 will affect hair, makeup and wardrobe processes on a big film like Batman: “You have people just touching your face, touching your body all day long. I need help getting into the catsuit. I can’t do it on my own. I was probably touched more than any job, just because of the clothes and the combat and all of that.”

Clay is struggling to keep it together in the trailer for the final season of 13 Reasons Why.

Nicole Kidman Reflects on Family and Fame

Nicole Kidman Tatler Bombshell

Nicole Kidman is kicking off the Bombshell promo tour with her Tatler cover story, in which she talks about the death of her father (“My three-year-old said, ‘But you’re not going to be sad like this tomorrow, are you?’ That’s when you realize, y’know, you have to be OK. Because they need to know that they’re safe, that their mother isn’’t going to fall apart. Inside? I was beyond shattered. But I had to rally”).

Johnny Depp is producing an unauthorized musical about Michael Jackson that is narrated by a talking glove. I hate all of those words.

-In a nice change of pace, Tom Hanks read some nice tweets.

Sia went to Walmart and TJ Maxx yesterday and paid everyone’s bills, telling people her name was Cici and she’d recently won the lottery.

John Boyega remains a delight.

Seth Meyers had his parents and brother on the show and they seem wonderfully well-adjusted and normal.

Beck has distanced himself from Scientology, saying “My father has been a Scientologist for a long time. But I’ve pretty much just focused on my music and my work for most of my life, and tended to do my own thing.” Leah Remini, however, is not buying it: “You can’t be married to a Scientology family such as the Ribisi family and not be fully on board. To say that he was more focused on his thing and the press just ran with it is a p**sy move. This is his way of not publicly stating that he was very much in and now he’s not.”

Sandra Bullock was at Jennifer Aniston’s Friendsgiving, as was Courteney Cox, Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Justin Theroux.

Chrissy Teigen turned John Legend’s ‘Sexiest Man’ People cover into pajamas for everyone to wear at Thanksgiving and I think I’m in love with her.

Dakota Johnson continues to be the most awkward person ever in interviews.

-Here’s video of Jennifer Garner losing her poo when Julie Andrews called her.

-French director Luc Besson could be hit with a 10-month suspended prison sentence — and not for the reasons you’d think. He allegedly fired his assistant illegally when she was on medical leave.

-It’s been a rough week in K-pop. Jung Joon-young and Choi Jong-hoon have been sentenced to prison terms on charges of sexual assault.

-Another week, another celeb: Jane Fonda recruited Paul Scheer for today’s “Fire Drill Friday” protests.

-It’s Black Friday or, as gossip hounds know it, CDAN blind item reveal day.

-The E.T. short is cute. Yes, it’s a commercial, but it’s still cute.

Sia Does Carpool Karaoke with James Corden

James Corden took Sia on a ride in the latest segment of Carpool Karaoke. (Was I the only one hoping for some old school Zero 7 songs?) Of note: she explained her refusal to show her face is tied to her past as an addict.

-Alleged audio from Kanye West’s backstage meltdown at SNL has leaked and it’s not good. Tidbits include: “They took my fuckin’ stage off of SNL, without asking me. Now I’m bummed. That and Taylor Swift, fake ass. Now I ain’t gon’ do this.”

Gwen Stefani admits that her new song is about Blake Shelton. Really? ‘Cause you guys were doing such a bang up job keeping it on the DL ’till now.

Rihanna said she had to bail from her scheduled Grammy performance because she came down with bronchitis – –but did she really?

-Speaking of the Grammys, you can see an upset Taylor Swift mouth the words “I missed that note. Did you hear it?” in this clip.

Justin Bieber tries to cover up his Selena Gomez tattoo. This month.

Channing Tatum, what a jerk.

Henry Cavill insists that his 19-year-old girlfriend is really mature for her age and that they have plenty to talk about.Vanessa Hudgens and her boyfriend are under investigation — for carving their names and a heart into a rock. Wait, is lameness illegal now? I’m in supes troubs.

-The first image from Guardians of the Galaxy shows teeny tiny baby Groot!

-Does anyone else get weirdly nervous when Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner spend lots of time together?

-Whoa. The head of ABC was just unceremoniously dumped. Apparently, Disney wants the network to focus on less Shonda-ish shows and more “CBS-style procedural crime series like NCIS.” Ruh roh. On the plus side, he  replaced by the sister of the girl who played Francie on Alias! (I once overheard someone in an elevator say “Francie doesn’t like coffee ice cream” and it took everything in me not to throw myself at her and cling like a leech…)

Nina Dobrev might have moved on from Austin Stowell to, um, Chace Crawford. Yeah, what you’re thinking right now is what I’m thinking too..

Adele let her son dress up like Elsa from Frozen when they went to Disneyland because she’s wonderful.

-This is so fun: you know all of those photos floating around today of Kate Middleton learning how to blog? That’s my friend’s hubby showing her the ropes!

-Everyone assumed the New Yorker story we’d all be talking about this week would be the one about TMZ, but it’s actually the heartbreaking article on how NYPD Blue and Deadwood creator David Milch gambled away his $100 million fortune. Sad, sad stuff.

-Britney Spears told her Vegas audience that she’s looking for “a hot nerd, like, a really hot guy, with a really big penis.” Gurl. Don’t say stuff like that out loud. Also:
-I kinda feel bad for EW. They finally decide to give The 100 some love with a huge print spread, and it comes on the heels of its first shark jumpy ep.

-HBO’s Vinyl tanked in ratings. Gee, it’s almost as if viewers are sick of watching tortured middle-aged guys searching for purpose while mansplaining to every woman they meet. Crazy.

-I’ve given up on Supergirl, but I love that Lexi Alexander is directing the next two eps. She’s my hero on Twitter.

Meryl Streep is a terrible opera singer ever in this promo for Florence Foster Jenkins.
