-I adore Elle’s new cover with Jodie Turner-Smith. In the interview, she talks about giving birth to her daughter: “Patriarchal society really is out here, scamming women into thinking that they’re not supremely powerful beings. Because damn, it’s some goddess-level shit.”

-What’s up with all the gossip about Kanye West with makeup influencers? First we had outlandish rumours surrounding Jeffree Star, and now TikTok makeup guru Cole Carrigan claimed West’s bodyguard instructed him to meet the rapper at a W Hotel late at night — but then he retracted it. That’s one way to get publicity, I guess.

Rob Lowe says he lives in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s neighborhood, and swears he’s seen Harry with a ponytail. Pics or it didn’t happen.

-Meanwhile, William and Kate reportedly ignored the Scottish government’s warnings to stay at home.

Lana Del Rey‘s disastrous album promo tour continues. She says that this clip of her talking about how Trump didn’t mean to incite a riot was taken out of context.

Chuck Norris‘ rep insists it was a lookalike and not him who attended the Capitol insurrection after images trended on Twitter.

-Are Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles already in the sharing jewelry stage of their relationship?

-Most movie theatres are closed and production is in flux, but streaming services have stockpiled content. Netflix released a new star-studded promo for its massive 2021 movie slate, which promises new movies every week of the year. We get glimpses of some of their most anticipated offerings, including Amy Adams‘ The Woman In The Window, Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer‘s superhero comedy Thunder Force, and Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Don’t Look Up.

-Marvel also seems to be in good shape, despite the current climate. Kevin Feige just made a lot of announcements about what’s on their slate, including that Deadpool 3 will remain R rated despite now being a Disney property.

Brad Pitt relaxes in the sun in the first ad campaign for his Miraval rosé (which is surprisingly tasty).

-I think we’re all ready for a Brendan Fraser comeback but a Darren Aronofsky joint called The Whale about man with compulsive eating disorder is not what I’d hoped for.

-FX is parting ways with True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto, who had two years left on his deal there, making his planned series with Matthew McConaughey DOA.

Sally Rooney, the author of Normal People and Conversations with Friends, is set to release her third novel in the fall. Do you think she’ll have discovered quotation marks by then?

Jason Momoa covers Men’s Health splattered in mud courtesy of the dune buggy-themed photo shoot. In the interview, he talks about filming Dune, being a good dad and a good husband, working through fear creatively, and gathering the nerve to ask out Lisa Bonet.

-Speaking of Health covers, Normani landed the Women’s Health one.

-Well, this is huge: Wonder Woman 1984 just became the biggest movie to drop on streaming, coming to HBO Max (and theatres where open) on Christmas Day. With all the vaccine news, I’m surprised Warner Bros didn’t just hold it until next summer/fall, but it looks like they’re willing to sacrifice the movie to beef up HBO Max subscribers. Bad news for theatres — and bad news for Canadians. It doesn’t look like we’ll be getting it on streaming by xmas, even though most (but not all) of HBO Max’s programming typically comes here via Crave. But Crave says it won’t stream the film until after its “standard theatrical windows,” which is traditionally 90 days.

-In other HBO Max news, they just greenlit a 4-episode adaptation of the comic series DMZ from Roberto Patino and Ava DuVernay, starring Rosario Dawson and Benjamin Bratt.

-The Fresh Prince reunion just dropped on HBO Max, and everyone’s talking about the intense conversation between Will Smith and Janet Hubert (who played the first Aunt Viv). In this clip, she tells him “Calling a black woman difficult in Hollywood is the kiss of death and its hard enough being a dark-skinned black woman in this business.”

-A Back To The Future writer revealed that Biff Tannen was inspired by Trump. Yeah, that tracks.

-Meanwhile, Michael J. Fox recalled sitting next to Princess Diana at the Back to the Future premiere. “The movie started and I had to go pee. So, I am sitting there in agony. I can’t say anything to her, and I can’t turn my back on her. So the rest of the night was a nightmare, a pee-floating nightmare.”

Hugh Grant considers Paddington 2 to be “kind of a masterpiece,” even if his kids think otherwise.

Demi Lovato’s new look is making me want to chop all of my hair off. Wow!

-The paid Instagram posts from celebrities are out of control recently (I guess it’s the easiest way to make money while stuck at home in a pandemic) but this ad from Sarah Michelle Gellar and Shannen Doherty is very charming — mostly because it’s clear neither of them are great cooks. Did Shannen even bother to cut those potatoes?

-Speaking of paid partnerships, Jennifer Aniston just signed a big one with Vital Proteins. I love this for her. I used to take their collagen peptides for recovery back in the good ol’ days when it was safe to go to the gym.

-I’m thrilled that Kristen Stewart‘s gay holiday romcom is getting strong reviews. I mean, I was watching it regardless, but this is nice.

Others have said it better than I ever could, but this article about the rise of “ambient TV” misses a whole lot of points. Also, Emily In Paris wasn’t even developed for Netflix originally.

-Here’s the first trailer for season 2 of Batwoman, with Javicia Leslie taking over the titular role.

-Here’s the trailer for Music, starring Kate Hudson and co-written and directed by Sia.

Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley’s lost YA movie Chaos Walking finally gets a trailer. The production on this thing was cursed.

-Oh goodie. Now Josh Brolin has weighed in on Chris Pratt, complaining about the “global hate hand job” everyone’s giving his costar. Why won’t they stop?

-Just in case you thought 2020 couldn’t get weirder, Daniel Kaluuya confirmed his live-action Barney movie is really happening and it will be darker than the OG TV show. “Barney taught us, ‘I love you, you love me. Won’t you say you love me too?’ That’s one of the first songs I remember, and what happens when that isn’t true?”

Matthew McConaughey says he was sexually abused as a teenager in his new memoir Greenlights, writing “I was blackmailed into having sex for the first time when I was 15. I was certain I was going to hell for the premarital sex. Today, I am merely certain that I hope that’s not the case.” He also mentions an incident when he was “molested by a man when I was 18 while knocked unconscious in the back of a van.” Still, he remained an optimist. “I’ve never felt like a victim. I have a lot of proof that the world is conspiring to make me happy.”

Justin Bieber says he’s not slowing down his support of Black Lives Matter. “I am a white Canadian and I will never know what it feels like to be an African American. [W]hat I do know is I am willing to stand up and use my voice to shine [a] light on racism.”

-The 100 showrunner is now blaming his much-maligned final season on the network, saying the head of the CW told him to make the show darker. Did he also tell him to kill off beloved characters in throwaway scenes that made zero sense?

Kristen Bell will star in and exec produce in Netflix’s The Woman in the House, a thriller series about a woman nursing a broken heart who possibly witnesses her neighbor murder someone.

Noah Cyrus wore a sheer bodysuit (ala Britney in the “Toxic” video) to the CMTs. That went over about as well as you’d expect.

-CBS’ and Trump have been in a pissing contest all day that includes a lot of early clip releases from his 60 Minutes interview that’s airing Sunday.

-The more we hear about the Synder cut, the more it’s clear that this thing never actually existed.

-Wait, so Netflix has reportedly renewed Steve Carell’s Space Force but keeps cancelling shows people actually like? WTF?

-The trailer for the Netflix film The Prom has dropped, starring Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Kerry Washington, and James Corden. How many times am I going to get sucked into watching a Ryan Murphy joint and instantly regret it? At least one more, apparently.
