-The New Yorker did a profile on Wendy Williams that’s totally worth your time, but for TLDR, here are the best bits.

Henry Cavill is done with commenters going after his girlfriend on Instagram. “I am very happy in love, and in life. I’d be enormously grateful if you were happy with me. If you can’t bring yourself to be happy with me, then at the very least try to do yourself proud and be the best version of yourself.”

-Fun! John Boyega and Joe Cornish are reteaming for an Attack of the Block sequel. I’m hoping Jodie Whittaker is back too.

Scarlett Johansson accepted the Generation Award at this weekend’s MTV Movie & TV Awards — and hubby Colin Jost “mistook” it for the Nickelodeon Kids and slimed her at the end of her speech. This is the most I’ve liked either of them.

-They also premiered a new Black Widow clip during the awards, which seems to be hyping Florence Pugh’s character more than Scarlett’s.

-This Is Us’ Justin Hartley and his former The Young and the Restless costar Sofia Pernas are married. He was previously married his Passions costar Lindsay Korman before he wed Selling Sunset’s Chrishell Stause.

The Weeknd Talks Grammy Snub

the weeknd billboard

The Weeknd is still all up in his feels about his Grammy snub. Calling it “an attack,” he tells Billboard: “I use a sucker punch as an analogy. Because it just kind of hit me out of nowhere. I definitely felt … I felt things. I don’t know if it was sadness or anger. I think it was just confusion. I just wanted answers. Like, ‘What happened?'” He added that the three previous Grammy Awards he’s won “mean nothing” to him now.

Taylor Swift fans are feeling a little duped today: a rumour of new music turned out to be re-packaged previous releases.

Armie Hammer has exited the upcoming TV series The Offer, which tells the behind the scenes story of the making of The Godfather. This was a really buzzy project — one wonders if he’s just laying low because of what’s already being talked about, or if he’s bracing for more.

-Wow. Call Me By Your Name’s Luca Guadagnino and Timothée Chalamet are eyeing a reunion for the coming-of-age horror story Bones & All, which is — wait for it — a cannibal love story. I’m not joking.

-I don’t watch Snowpiercer, but this interview with Daveed Diggs is a delight!

Miley Cyrus did a NPR Tiny Desk concert and covered Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You.” It’s a bit hard, but I’ll allow it.

Wendy Williams says she hired a P.I. to follow her husband when they were together and he discovered a mistress. “The P.I. followed her to her GYN appointments. The P.I. ended up finding out that the girl was pregnant.”

Joshua Bassett released a new video, but posted on Instagram “hiiii, i wrote this song half a year ago, and this release has been scheduled for months!” — just in case you thought he was trying to wade in on the Olivia Rodrigo vs Sabrina Carpenter diss track drama.

Zendaya is defending the 12-year age gap between her and her Malcolm & Marie costar John David Washington: “People often forget — which is understandable because I’ve been playing 16 since I was 16, you know — [but] I am grown. I knew that, as I grow and as I evolve, there would be that moment where I could play someone my own age.”

Zendaya also let it slip that her Spider-Man 3 character will be “running from aliens.” Sigh. How has MCU not yet grasped that the beauty of the Spider-Man movies is that they’re about a high school kid dealing with neighborhood baddies. The smaller stakes is why Homecoming was so great.

-This is a very good piece on how the MCU has conditioned its audience not to accept change. There’s a great show to be had in WandaVision if the whole thing is a construct she’s created to cope with her grief, but I’d be surprised if it goes that way. And we barely got three episodes of “what the heck is going on?” weirdness before they’re feeling the need to shift into explaining.

Trevor Noah explained the GameStop stock drama as if he were a bubbly Margot Robbie in The Big Short.

-Netflix confirmed that Lupin’s remaining 5 episodes will debut this summer.

Dominic West and Lily James‘ romantic jaunt around Rome didn’t just get them in the gossip spotlight; it might also get them fined because you’re not supposed to ride scooters together in covid.

Drake celebrated his 34th birthday over the weekend, and people are disgusted that he served a mac ‘n cheese that included raisins and capers.

-It’s been a big day for the moon! NASA announced there’s more water on the moon than previously thought, and Oscar Isaac is in negotiations to star as Moon Night in Marvel’s forthcoming Disney+ series. He was previously pretty adamant about not playing Poe on a Disney+ series, but that was before covid killed movies (not to mention this new project keeps him far away from the Star Wards fandom).

-Comedian Eric Andre talked about Ellen Degeneres being “cancelled” for being mean. “James Corden is fucked if that’s the only criteria to get called out. James Corden and Lorne Michaels are screwed! They’re trembling in their fucking boots.”

Bette Midler said that she, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy would all be down for a Hocus Pocus sequel. Please Hollywood, we ask for so little!

I took it really hard…I know from not growing up with any family whatsoever that that was the last thing that I wanted to do for my daughters. It was, like, ugh the ultimate promise I wanted to make with you and for you was to have this amazing family and I found that and there’s something not working, that isn’t livable. How tragic is that?”

Octavia Spencer says her favourite birthday message this year came from Keanu Reeves, who once helped her when her car broke down on the way to an audition.

-The former DJ on Wendy Williams‘ show jumped in to comment when people were posting that she seemed distracted on Friday’s episode, saying “Y’all have no idea what’s really going on and everyone there is afraid to speak up because they don’t wanna lose their jobs.. this is going to play out bad.. I feel sorry for the workers and victims.”

-Today, Williams seemed to address Friday’s weirdness, saying “I appreciate you watching, but even after all of these years, it’s still work. An effort put in for the hour I’m out here, you know? I guess every day is not perfect, but I’m not a perfectionist. I’m not perfect.”

Hugh Grant says he’d do a Notting Hill sequel because “I would like to do a sequel to one of my own romantic comedies that shows what happened after those films ended. Really, to prove the terrible lie that they all were, that it was a happy ending.” Look man, life has been rough this year. Just let us keep this one little thing.
