Mariah Carey Opens Up to Oprah

-In advance of her memoir’s release, Mariah Carey sat down with Oprah for an interview on Apple+, and talks about feeling like a captive in her marriage to Tommy Mottola, and that Derek Jeter was a “catalyst” in their divorce.

In the book, she writes that Mottola held a butter knife to her face in front of a bunch of their guests at their home, and that he didn’t want her songs to have an R&B influence because he “tried to wash the ‘urban’ (translation: Black) off of me. And it was no different when it came to the music”.

-Time released their 100 most influential people list, and Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade made the cover.

-Also for Time, another influential couple — Prince Harry and Meghan Markleappeared in a video to tell Americans to vote in “the most important election of our lifetime”.

Emma Stone and her partner stepped out wearing matching rings — and she was also sporting what looks like a baby bump.

Kim Cattrall isn’t interested in taking back what she’s said about Sarah Jessica Parker: “Everything is on Google. So, I encourage you to Google it about anything that I’ve said. I feel that that was then, and when I look at what’s going on around me, I just don’t have any regrets.”

Kelly Clarkson and Usher spoke candidly about overcoming the pain of divorce on her show — and now people are shipping them together.

-It’s a huge day for The OC alums. Adam Brody and Leighton Meester welcomed a baby girl (who they adorably named Arlo Day), while Ben McKenzie is reportedly expecting a baby with Gotham costar Morena Baccarin. The pregnancy bombshell dropped in the middle of her divorce case, so this should be interesting…

-Congrats to Usher and Grace Miguel, who tied the knot.

-Oof. This comparision of critical reactions to Ryan Adams‘ cover version of 1989 versus Taylor Swift’s original work is devastatingly sexist.

-Rumours of trouble in Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady’s marriage continue to swirl.

-I’m kind of loving Jimmy Kimmel‘s new method of making stars read mean tweets live, especially when it’s clear that they didn’t sneak a peek beforehand. Andrew Garfield’s reaction to being compared to a pedophile who lives in an RV is priceless.

Jimmy Fallon got Keenan & Kel to reunite on his show for a “Good Burger” sketch and it was wonderful.

-This is great: the ladies of The Office recreated a photo they took five years ago. I really had to squint to figure out which one was the new one, which I guess means they’re all aging really well!

-I really liked the bits in this article talking about what a tough interview Shonda Rhimes is.

-Also, if you’re tweeting about Scandal’s premiere tonight and don’t like Olitz (because you’re a sane, rational person), you might want to avoid using the #Scandal hashtag. It’ll automatically add a ‘shippery emoji to your tweet.

Robert Pattinson admits that Twihards “drove him crazy.” Gee, ya think?

-Even Ryan Reynolds can’t figure out how to build IKEA units.

Kanye West sees himself as a 17-year-old adopted child of the fashion industry. Well, he’s got the “child” part right…

Maggie Gyllenhaal just joined James Franco‘s HBO series about porn, which means we all have to watch it now. Sigh.

-My feelings for Terrence Howard prevent me from watching Empire, but damn this picture of its writers’ room makes me think they’re doing something right.

-Also last night’s Empire premiere got a 16M viewers and a 6.5 rating in the A18-49 demo. That’s INSANE these days. It certainly dominated my Twitter TL all night. (My favourite part of this ratings article is the last line: “At 10 p.m., Nashville (5 million, 1.3) existed.”)

-Guys, I would totally eat at Gwyneth Paltrow’s food truck. I can’t be alone in this, right?!

Jeff Daniels explains the stakes in this new clip from The Martian.
