Rihanna’s Sneaky Sephora Set Up

-In a new ad for Fenty Skin, Rihanna sneaks into a Sephora to set up the display herself. God, I already know I’m gonna buy so much of this stuff…

Ali Larter has responded to former costar Leonard Roberts‘ essay about her poor treatment of him on the Heroes set with a half-ass apology: “I am heartbroken reading his perception of our relationship, which absolutely doesn’t match my memory nor experience on the show…I am truly sorry for any role I may have played in his painful experience during that time and I wish him and his family the very best.” So basically, she doesn’t remember it but oopsie if she offended.

-I’m surprised big names keep signing on to Facebook Watch shows, which have negative zero buzz. Cardi B is going to star in a new series called Cardi Tries ____, in which she becomes a ballet dancer, stunt driver, and firefighter.

-Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner is sick of anti-maskers: “If I can wear a mask while I give birth, you can wear a mask at Walmart.”

Leah Remini has no time for people who are praising Tom Cruise’s on-set rant, reminding everyone that his ties to Scientology disqualify him from preaching safety. “Tom does not care about the families of his crew; this is all for publicity. Tom does not believe in family values. I mean, how anyone is falling for this is just mind-blowing.”

-Everyone’s digging the 2020 “love it, couldn’t wear it” fashion dog, including Sofia Vergara.

Diane Kruger covers Vogue Greece and talks about being scary skinny in her modeling days.

Kaley Cuoco says “they’re hoping” The Flight Attendant comes back for a second season — which kind of bums me out seeing as how well they just wrapped up the first season.

-Oof. David E Kelly’s response to criticism on how his new ABC Big Sky erases indigenous women is not great.

-I’m so confused about why Nancy Meyers‘ daughter got offended by the retrospective Vulture has been running on her mother’s movies this week. I’m equally confused by all the famous women who seem to agree with her. It’s not sexiest to praise the specificity of her mom’s work. I liked this take: “Costume design is an art and Nancy’s masterful use of clothing should be celebrated, not ignored.”

-The trailer for Walker, starring Jared Padalecki, actually looks ok?

Tina Fey says she thought she heard a man calling for help in the Hudson River, so she called the police. It turned out it was a guy who flipped a kayak in the Hudson and was floating north with no oar.

Rachael Leigh Cook, the star of 1999’s She’s All That, will reprise her role as Lainey Boggs — playing the mother of TikTok star Addison Rae‘s character in the gender-swapped remake. God, that makes me feel old.

Frances McDormand starring in a Sarah Polley-directed film sounds like a dream.

-I very much agree with Lin-Manuel Miranda’s take here: “When theater comes back it’s going to be in conversation with technology in an entirely different way. I don’t think we go back to a world where a show premieres on Broadway, and then no one can see it unless they have $200.”

-My god, one of the Hanson brothers now has seven kids.

-It looks like Adele is recording new music. Huzzah!

-Marvel has released yet another WandaVision promo, including a shot of Wanda and Vision with two children, leading fans to speculate that they’ll have twin boys like in the comic.

-Netflix has dropped the first trailer for Shadow And Bone, their adaptation of the wildly successful YA novel.

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas Welcome Baby Girl

-TMZ is reporting (complete with hilariously bad photoshopped artwork) that Sophie Turner gave birth to a daughter last Wednesday at a hospital in Los Angeles. She and Joe Jonas reportedly named the little one Willa.

-If the new plan for Tenet actually goes ahead, it’s going to be so, so dumb. Instead of just pushing movie to next year, it will now open first overseas on Aug. 26 in over 70 countries, (including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Russia, Spain and the UK), followed by select U.S. cities on Sept. 3 — even though so few cities in the U.S. should be encouraging people to hang out inside for hours with strangers. But if it drops in other countries, I can’t imagine Warner Bros postponing their U.S. plans and letting people go crazy on torrents, no matter how dangerous theatres still are.

-According to a new book, Prince William ‘wanted to make sure Harry wasn’t blindsided by lust‘ when it came to Meghan Markle. That’s pretty rich, coming from William (if rumours are to be believed).  Also, I’m sure that didn’t come up when Harry was dating Chelsy Davy or Cressida Bonas.

-Speaking of Cressida, she just got married.

Justin and Hailey Bieber are currently on a cross-country U.S. roadtrip (which sounds like the last thing I’d want to do these days), and they made a pit stop to visit Kanye West at the rapper’s Wyoming ranch.

-Shortly after Justin’s visit, Kanye tweeted “I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter.” He also posted the cover art for his delayed new album.

-The Daily Beast spoke to former teachers and administrators at Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s New Village Leadership Academy, who say that it was really a Scientology school for kids.

-Speaking of the Daily Beast’s coverage of Scientology, they talked to Leah Remini, who says of Tom Cruise: “This is a man who has not even seen his own daughter in years. That this guy can be running around and having people think he’s this super-nice guy, I don’t get it. But that’s the Hollywood bulls**t game people play.”

-WarnerMedia is investigating the Ellen Degeneres Show’s workplace after that damning Buzzfeed article.

Megan Thee Stallion talked about being shot in both feet in a tearful IG live: “It was just the worst experience of my life and it’s not funny, it’s nothing to joke about and nothing for y’all to go and be making fake stories about. I didn’t put my hands on nobody I didn’t deserve to get shot.”

Peter Shinkoda (who played Nobu in Daredevil) says Jeph Loeb, who was then the head of Marvel TV, told the writers not to develop Asian characters and drop a major storyline for his character. “Jeph Loeb told the writer’s room not to write for Nobu and Gao. This was reiterated many times by many of the writers and showrunners that ‘Nobody cares about Chinese people and Asian people. There was three previous Marvel movies—a trilogy called Blade—where Wesley Snipes kills 200 Asians each movie; nobody gives a shit, so don’t write about Nobu and Gao,’ and they were forced to put their storyline down and drop it. [The writers] were very apologetic that they couldn’t follow through with it but their hands were tied.” Watch the clip here, and the full interview here.

-He also tweeted that he and his costar (also Asian) were not invited to the Season 2 premiere.

-Netflix has announced The Witcher: Blood Origins; a spin-off series set 1200 years before the story of Geralt of Rivia.

-After 37 years on Days of Our Lives, Kristian Alfonso (who plays Hope) is saying goodbye — and seems quite happy to be rid of it. “In the last few years, Days of Our Lives is not the Days of Our Lives as I know it.”

Seth Green looks back at his biggest roles in this 9-minute video, of which I watched every second.

-Pitchfork gave Taylor Swift‘s new album an 8/10, which is INCREDIBLY generous compared to how their ratings usually go. And some of her craziest fans have spent the day harassing and doxxing the reviewer.  My god.

-A few people I follow on Insta were sharing video of the drive-in concert Third Eye Blind did this weekend, and it seemed so cool. Social distancing and masks seemed enforced, and people listened through their car stereos. But then video of a Chainsmokers “drive in” concert that happened in the Hamptons surfaced and I’m back to being scared of everyone.

-Freeform seems to be first out of the gate with a show that revolves around covid. Here’s the trailer for Love In the Time Of Corona, a four episode romcom that was shot using remote technologies from in the cast’s actual homes.

-The Kissing Booth 2 just dropped this weekend, but it turns out the third movie has already been shot and is coming next year. There’s already a new clip too.

Beyonce Knows What OnlyFans Is

Beyoncé appears on a charity remix of Megan Thee Stallion‘s hit “Savage” and Twitter is losing its mind about her OnlyFans name drop. In the remix, Bey raps: “Hips TikTok when I dance / On that demon time she might start an OnlyFans / Big B and that B stands for bands / If you wanna see some real ass baby here’s your chance”

-Meanwhile, Gigi’s ex Tyler Cameron wants the internet to stop saying he’s the father of her baby.

Joe Jonas says Sophie Turner only agreed to date him on the condition he watch all the Harry Potter movies. Seems reasonable.

-On a podcast, Katie Couric talked about being uncomfortable when interviewing Denzel Washington in 2004, saying she left “feeling really kind of shaken that he had kind of gone after me in a way that was completely, weirdly uncalled for.” I mean, reading the exchange, it doesn’t sound so bad? He challenged her and then didn’t let her off the hook when she, a white woman, those people‘d him.

-Despite the entire state of California being under stay-at-home orders, Kendall Jenner and Phoenix Suns basketball player Devin Booker decided to go on a road trip.

-The Federal Aviation Administration is looking into a runway incident involving Harrison Ford that occurred at LA’s Hawthorne Airport on April 24. Again celebrities, California’s stay-at-home orders apply to you too.

-The Half Of It, a YA take on Cyrano de Bergerac that debuts on Netflix Friday, is getting really great reviews.

Alice Wu‘s, the writer-director of The Half Of It, talked to the NYT about the ingenious method she used to overcome writers’ block when completing the screenplay: she wrote a check for $1,000 to the National Rifle Association, a cause she is against. “I gave it to one of my best friends, TJ, who’s a butch firefighter. I gave myself five weeks, and told her, ‘if this first draft is not written, you are sending that check in.’ ”

-Normal People drops on Hulu today. The Ringer says “it’s Twilight for people who are too cynical to get swept away by the bland naiveté of stories like Twilight.”

-Speaking of new TV shows, the embargo lifted today on Ryan Murphy‘s Hollywood and oof, the reviews are baaaaaad. Variety calls it “the first outright dud of his post-Glee career,” The Hollywood Reporter says it’s “frustratingly naive,” and BBC calls it “a disaster.”

Kanye West is desperate to be recognized as a billionaire.

Mike Schur opened up about tomorrow night’s Parks & Rec special that doubles as a fundraiser for Feeding America. “The most important theme of the show is: Leslie Knope believes in friendship. She was loyal and friendly and put all her eggs in the power of friendship. It’s about her connecting with people and holding that group of characters together at a time when they’re unable to leave their homes.”

-At least Keith Urban knows he married up.

-The Academy has released new rules: streaming films are eligible for the Oscars, but only for this year. (Last year’s streaming nominees like Marriage Story and The Irishmen had very limited theatrical releases in order to be eligible). They’ve also merged the best sound editing and best sound mixing categories into one.

-Hollywood’s movie system is imploding before our eyes. The new Trolls movie managed to gross $100 million in three weeks as a 48-hour, $20 on-demand rental, and Universal CEO said its success means as soon as theatres reopen they will release films in both formats. That led to AMC saying they will no longer show Universal movies in their theatres. A pissing match between movie studios and theatre owners is the opposite of what that industry needs right now.

Tom Felton stars as a man who must take a road trip with his estranged sister to fulfill his dead mother’s wishes in the Braking For Whales trailer.
