-I never thought we’d have a beef between Drake and Paul Anka, but here we are.

-In an IG post this weekend, Justin Bieber asked fans to pray for him as he revealed his recent struggles with depression.

-This entire interview with Regina King is worth a read (Support the Girls is a movie I missed last year but really want to see because I’ve only heard raves), but this bit about whether or not her pal Tiffany Haddish was telling the truth about her other pal Sanaa Lathan biting Beyonce is gold: “Let me tell you something: I could tap your leg with my foot and Tiffany would retell it as me kicking you. She’s a comedian. She can make a story, know what I mean?”

-Speaking of interviews worth your time, speaking to Vulture John Mulaney revealed he fired Louis C.K.’s former manager Dave Becky, who represents a lot of comedians, a soon as the CK article came out in the NYT, but didn’t make a statement about it. “I didn’t feel I had anything that noble to add, and issuing a simple statement of one sentence that I fired Dave seemed evasive and honestly an unhelpful use of everyone’s time and taking up oxygen.” Also, when asked about making the comedy industry safer for women, he had the perfect answer: “I have a lot of thoughts and opinions on many things. I don’t think my thoughts and opinions matter in any way compared to the women who have been directly affected by these actions. I say this not at all to be evasive, but just to not talk anymore as a male in comedy who has not had to experience this. Other people should. Women’s opinions matter, and mine does not.”
