Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello May Be Dating

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello were spotted holding hands in West Hollywood and cuddling by a pool on the 4th of July. It’s like Christmas came early for their publicists!

-I watched the first couple episodes of the new season of Stranger Things yesterday and was blown away by the girl who plays Robyn. So I looked her up and she’s the daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethane Hawke. Yeah, that tracks.

Kevin Spacey‘s accuser abruptly dropped his assault and battery lawsuit. The actor is still facing criminal charges as the result of the accusation.

-This is a really good piece on YA authors and cancel culture, and how it exposes the need for the publishing industry to be overhauled.

-I love how normal Meghan Markle’s friends look, which shouldn’t seem like a big deal but it is.

-Amid growing speculation about who will be Archie‘s godparents, Meghan‘s BFF Jessica Mulroney posted (and quickly deleted) an Instagram message that said: ‘Don’t take criticism from anyone you wouldn’t go to for advice’. Which probably isn’t connected at all, but the UK media is running with it.

Julia Stiles says she can’t watch 10 Things I Hate About You. That’s ok. I re-watch it enough for the both of us.

Victoria Beckham defended her decision not to join the Spice Girls tour: “It took me a lot of courage not to go on tour with the Spice Girls again, but to be the one who says, ‘You know, I’m not doing it because things feel different now than they used to.’ I’d rather concentrate on my family and my company.”

Chloe Grace Mortez got a restraining order against an 18-year-old stalker who was arrested at her home twice within 24 hours.

The Spice Girls Announce Reunion Tour

-5 become 4: The Spice Girls (minus Victoria Beckham) announced today they are reuniting for a UK tour. Beckham wished her former bandmates well on Instagram— while making it clear she wouldn’t be joining them.

Camila Cabello and Ariana Grande bonded over their ponytail pain. I seriously don’t know how Grande wears one all the time without carrying around an Advil IV bag…

-This clip of Julia Roberts telling Gwyneth Paltrow to “shut your f*cking face” makes me kind of want to listen to their GOOP podcast now. I’ll just have to settle for her telling Busy Phillips to “shut the f*ck up, sit the f*ck down, dry your tears!”

-I gave up on The Walking Dead a long time ago but people are PISSED about its latest fake-out. Why kill off a white dude when you can give him a 3-movie deal instead?! (That’s exactly how they treated the female lead of Fear The Walking Dead except, you know, not at all.)

-Meanwhile, Andrew Lincoln is still bitter about the way the show treated Steven Yeun.

Rihanna wasn’t happy to learn that Trump was using her song at his rallies.

Kenan Thompson wasn’t happy with Pete Davidson’s joke about Dan Crenshaw during this weekend’s SNL.

-Meanwhile, I’m not sure about Davidson’s speech about Ariana Grande at the end of his Weekend Update segment. I’ll probably appreciate it more once I’m convinced he’ll stop making jokes about their relationship.

-Man, Rebel Wilson is mis-handling this thing in every way possible. Instead of just eating some humble pie and saying she misspoke, she is blocking black critics of her comments.

-No cast on TV is currently having as much fun as Legends of Tomorrow’s and you’ll never convince me otherwise.

-I don’t know why I’m surprised that Lindsay Lohan showed up at the EMAs last night, but I am.

-I liked what Jon Stewart had to say about making a change when he realized he didn’t have any women on The Daily Show’s writing staff: “There was an article about us [that] said it was a sexist environment, we didn’t have women writers. And I got very offended by that. I was very mad. I was like, ‘Are you saying I’m not a feminist?’ I was raised by a single mother…And I went back to the writers room, and I was like, “You believe this, Steve? What do you think, Greg? Dave? Tom? Mike?” And then I was like, Oooohhh. And it was right…We had put in a system of getting writers where there were no names on it. We thought that’s color-blind, gender-blind, et cetera. But what you don’t realize is the system itself — the tributaries that feed us those submissions — is polluted itself.”

-Broad City creator Abbi Jacobson talked about the time she had to explain to a guest actor why his “compliment” to Ilana Glazer about her body was not OK.

-I don’t get why everyone freaked out about this Britney Spears IG post and she deleted it? It looks just like a million other posts on my feed about people messing with Snap filters.

-Is there anything the world needs less than a movie from The Chainsmokers?

-You’re The Worst just got a premiere date and trailer. Yay! I kind of forgot this show exists but I’m totally here for its final season.

Victoria Beckham Explains Why She Doesn’t Want a Spice Girls Reunion

Victoria Beckham covers Vogue Australia

Victoria Beckham looks amazing in the pages of Vogue Australia (though I’m not sold on the flesh-coloured bandeau). In the interview, she talks about why she doesn’t want to do a Spice Girls reunion (“I always wanted to do fashion, so I was lucky that music was never my main passion. For the other girls it was”) and why she left the group in the first place (“I remember sitting very near to the front [at an Elton John concert] and looking at him singing those songs he’d sung time after time, year after year, and his passion and his enjoyment was incredible, even after all that time. And a few nights later, I was on stage at Madison Square Garden with the Spice Girls and I thought: ‘It’s almost like a waste that I’m given this opportunity. I appreciate the time I’ve had with the girls, but I don’t have what Elton can have after all these years.’ There was nothing there, other than that my kids were in the audience and I wanted them to see Mummy doing the Spice Girls.”).

Bryan Singer is working hard to get ahead of an article that Esquire is about to publish an article that he says will ruin his career.

-This article about how Timothee Chalamet is the perfect movie star for 2018 (according to producers, agents and studio execs) is so, so weird.  There’s lots of talk about how he’s a soft “beta” and not a hard “alpha” like Leonardo DiCaprio by people who clearly forget that Leo was a teen heartthrob for decades (“He’s pretty fey,” says one veteran studio hand and Academy voter in his 60s. “He might be the next Anthony Perkins, rather than the next Leo”).  This part is especially gross: “Girls love him now because I don’t think they’re scared of him…You’re selling the new male. What does the new male movie star look like in a post #MeToo world, where you can’t get away with all the things the alpha guys used to crush it at?” What exactly were you trying to get away with before?!

-Speaking of articles that deal a lot about traditional movie star archetypes, Viggo Mortensen talks about how not becoming famous until he was in his 40s helped him avoid celebrity traps. I have mixed feelings about Green book — I liked it but it’s problematic — but I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s part of the mix when Oscar talk comes around. (Also, I can’t believe he’s going to be 60 in 5 days!)

-I was genuinely surprised by Meghan Markle’s pregnancy announcement. I wonder how Princess Eugenie feels about the fact that they announced it to the family at her wedding?

-Twitter is fantasy casting a movie with Kerry Washington and Chris Evans, and Washington is into it because she’s no fool.

Jennifer Garner says an Alias reboot may be in the works. Despite my reboot fatigue, I don’t hate this idea.

-Kirsten Dunst and Kristen Scott Thomas have designed sweaters, with proceeds going to their fave charities.

Nicole Kidman has not one, but two movies that are generating Oscar buzz (Boy Erased and Destroyer) so she’ll be doing quite a bit of press in the next few months. Still, I’m surprised that she talked about Tom Cruise in a new interview while addressing #MeToo: “I got married very young, but it definitely wasn’t power for me — it was protection. I married for love, but being married to an extremely powerful man kept me from being sexually harassed. I would work, but I was still very much cocooned. So when I came out of [the marriage] at 32, 33, it’s almost like I had to grow up.”

-I really like Ariana Grande and I hope she’s doing ok after her split from Pete Davidson. At least it happened before the wedding.

-On a new podcast, Taran Killam got candid about the mood behind the scenes on SNL: “When Seth Meyers left the show, the dynamic changed quite a bit. He was the last person there who I witnessed really collaborate with Lorne, as opposed to just kind of do what Lorne says.”

Drake comes off really, really well when talking about his drama with Pusha T in Lebron James’ new HBO show The Shop.

Ansel Elgort is living two different lives in the Jonathan trailer.
