Miley Cyrus Shares Hospital Selfie

Miley Cyrus selfie

Cyrus tweeted a message to fans from her hospital bed, apologizing for a canceled concert. “Kansas I promise I’m as heartbroken as you are. I wanted to badly 2 b there 2night. Not being with yall makes me feel s—tier than I already do.”

-Miley Cyrus‘ camp would like you all to know that her hospitalization had to do with an allergic reaction and had nothing to do with excessive partying, mmm-kay???

-Jon Hamm washes away his Don Draper stink with this totally adorable Sesame Street clip.

-Did Katy Perry hook up with Diplo at Coachella?

-Donnie Wahlberg deserves some serious brownie points. He helped Jenny McCarthy change the news surrounding her by popping the question.

-It’s not everyday that a celebrity’s suicide attempt involves a severed penis.

-You know, if I was going to trust anyone to whip Justin Bieber into shape, it’d be The Office’s Craig Robinson so I approve of this friendship.

-I just assumed that it was the work of a bored intern, but it turns out William Shatner really has been live-tweeting CW shows. He started doing it for Supernatural because he likes building up small sci-fi shows, and then it just snowballed. This explains why he and Sam Witwer are always tweeting at each other (adorably, I should add).

-Channing Tatum may play Gambit, which would be a lot more exciting if Gambit wasn’t THE WORST.

-Amy Schumer and Josh Charles did an Aaron Sorkin spoof set in a fast food restaurant and it’s perfection. If you’re in Canada you may have to Hola/Media Hint/TunnelBear/whatever to get around the geo-blocking, but it’s totally worth it.

-Paul Walker‘s brothers will stand in for the late actor’s final scenes in Fast & Furious 7.  One of them really looks like him.

-The cast of Roswell is reuniting at the ATX Television Festival and it makes me way more excited than what’s probably acceptable. If I find out that Katherine Heigl was intentionally not invited, my head might actually explode.

-This is an awesome oral history of the 8 Mile rap battles.

-“Wait, I have a cameo? I didn’t know that.” James Franco isn’t exactly up to date with what’s happening in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

-Save the cheerleader, save the world? Not anymore. Hayden Panettiere was NOT asked to appear NBC’s Heroes reboot. (Their loss. She was the only reason I kept watching Nashville for way longer than I should have.)

-Beyonce posted a thigh-riffic vacation photo on Instagram, possibly to make us all forget about that thigh gap crap from earlier.

-Here’s the latest trailer for Elizabeth Banks’ Walk of Shame. Does it make me a bad feminist for wanting to watch the crap out of this?

-The ridiculous Star Wars set photo analyzing can begin…now.

-EW’s examination of series finales continues. Today, it’s Dawson’s Creek, which remains one of my favourite series finales of all time even though I had stopped watching the show years before.

-Brace yourself: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding is near. “It’s about high style and high fashion.”

-Dina Lohan pleaded guilty to a DUI and is looking at community service.

-Taye Diggs was spotted on a date with a model but I’m just going to go ahead and pretend that he and Idina Menzel are still together because I clearly need more time to process this.

-FX just renewed The Americans. ::happy dance::

-Speaking of The Americans, Keri Russell looks lovely in a new magazine spread.

-Given my recent propensity to devour YA books, I’m kind of shocked I haven’t read If I Stay, but the new trailer with Chloe Moretz intrigues me.

-Dax Shepard was on Ellen and he took credit for our new love of sloths.

-Anthony Mackie keeps pushing for a Wonder Woman movie and making me love him even more.

-This is weird: a clip for Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past will play in the closing credits of Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man 2.

-All of the X-Men: Days of Future Past trailers have been on point, but this final one pulls into the lead by upping the snark factor.

Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny Flirt on Twitter

Gillian Anderson David Duchovny


-David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are tweeting at each other and it’s giving me all the squees.

-Robert Downey Jr. has also joined Twitter. This is all good news.

-Ice Cube is back-tracking after saying some stupid shit about being “robbed” at the MTV Movie Awards because Paul Walker got the “sympathy” vote. Simmer down, buddy. It’s not the Oscars.

-Do you think Robert Pattinson has a clause in his contract that he’ll only do Cronenberg movies if they include scenes of limo sex? Here he is getting it on with Julianne Moore in the trailer for Map to the Stars.

-Brandy was engaged, but now she’s not.

-Oopsie! Lindsay Lohan was reportedly spotted drinking vodka at Coachella.

-Kelly Osbourne and Paris Hilton got into a fight at Coachella as if it was still 2005 and they were both relevant.

-In other icky Coachella news, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were reportedly spotted getting cozy there.

-Is anyone else really looking forward to seeing Leonardo DiCaprio get mauled by a bear? Just me?

-Alec Baldwin, when someone like Tracy Morgan is expressing concern for your well-being, it’s time to rethink your life.

-Zac Efron has great abs! He’s dating his costar! There’s nothing to see here, folks!

-This season’s Mad Men is continuing all those Megan Draper/Sharon Tate connections, proving that the writers are straight up trolling us now.

-Meanwhile, here’s a rundown of every Canadian that has ever appeared on the show.

-Drew Barrymore’s baby shower attracted lots of stars, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz.

-The international trailer for Annie is out, and there are huge Cameron Diaz-sized bites all over the scenery.

-Meanwhile, Cameron has said a lot of weird shit during her promo tour for The Other Woman.

-Here’s the first trailer for NBC’s remake of Rosemary’s Baby starring Zoe Saldana.

-Amber Heard was spotted enjoying a girls night out that may or may not have been her bachelorette party.

-Did Kevin Connelly sub-tweet at Adrian Grenier and Jeremy Piven for missing the Entourage wrap party?

-I love Lake Bell so much I’m going to give her a pass for going topless on the cover of Esquire. It’s only because In A World was crazy good.

-This week’s EW had a great feature about series finales, in which they interviewed a bunch of past showrunners. Here, Vince Gilligan expands on his approach to the Breaking Bad ender.

-Maya Rudolph‘s upcoming variety show sounds great. Andy Samberg and Kristen Bell will be on her first show.

-The woman who Laura Prepon‘s Orange Is The New Black’s character is based on is speaking up. I really like Piper Kerman‘s response at the end.

-Andrew Garfield really likes being naked and doesn’t think there’s a problem with that, ok you guys?

-Here’s a trailer for Paul Haggis’ Third Person starring Mila Kunis, Liam Neeson and James Franco.

-Childish Gambino is mad at his label and wants out of his record contract. Come back to Community!!

-Mark your calendars, ladies: Magic Mike 2 will hit theatres July 3, 2015.

-Jenny Slate‘s film Obvious Child was a big hit at Sundance this year, and the trailer proves why.

-Despite reports, CBS says “there are no discussions” with Chelsea Handler for late-night.

-I was a little unsure when Ben Affleck was cast in Gone Girl, but he’s kind of perfect as Nick in the first trailer. This might end up being one of those rare instances where the movie is better than the book.

Once Upon A Time’s Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas Wed in Intimate Ceremony

Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas in Once Upon A Time

Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas in Once Upon A Time. (ABC)

-Once Upon A Time stars Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas just found their real-life happy ending: the expectant couple got married on Saturday.

-Speaking of weddings, Backstreet Boy Nick Carter got married to Lauren Kitt.

-In other big life changes, Mike Myers and his wife Kelly Tisdale have a new baby girl adorably named Sunday Molly.

-Jenny McCarthy wrote a ridiculous op-ed in which she tries to backpedal by saying “I am not anti-vaccine.” Does she not realize that we can all just Google her past comments?

-Despite reports, Sean Penn and Charlize Theron are not engaged. Well, not “yet” anyway.

-Jimmy Fallon reportedly narrowly escaped a bar brawl — and ended up buying everyone shots.

-Bryan Cranston, as Walter White, helped a young man ask a girl to prom and it was kinda awesome.

-Speaking of awesome, this is a great way to start the week: by watching Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart play The Newlywed Game

-Prince William made a crack about needing another baby blanket and the entire world freaked out, but then Kate Middleton was spotted drinking wine so everyone collectively unclenched.

-Fashion wunderkind Tavi Gevinson is going to guest-star in next week’s Parenthood.

-”Fetch” isn’t going to happen, but Lindsay Lohan is really pushing hard for “quiche.

-This is so weird: Johnny Depp will testify in his fake ex-girlfriend’s murder case.

-Lily Allen continues to break my heart. Following her dumb comments on feminism, she’s now said she will calm her onstage antics in response to her husband’s request.

-Get ready to feel really old: Say Anything is 25 today.

-Oprah interviewed Pharrell Williams, and he started to cry when talking about “Happy.” He’s so damn cute!

-Lupita Nyong’o hit one million Instagram followers yesterday and posted a total charming (though squeal-y) reaction video.

-Justin Bieber was a no-show at his assault trial in Toronto today.

-Bieber wasn’t too busy to join Chance the Rapper as a surprise guest at Coachella, though.

-Speaking of Coachella, weekend one was an endless parade of celebrities dressing like douches, photo-bombing the norms, and making cameos in each other’s sets.

-The best thing to come out of weekend one’s Coachella is this video of Leonardo DiCaprio dancing to MGMT’s set.

-During his Reddit AMA, James Van Der Beek picked the episode where he thought Dawson’s Creek officially jumped the shark. I would have gone with the one where his dad dies because he was eating ice cream while driving, but his pick was pretty solid too.

-Speaking of Reddit AMAs, Harrison Ford did one this weekend and was in a surprisingly good mood.

-Taylor Swift crashed a bridal shower, but at least she had enough forethought to bring a KitchenAid for a gift.

-The fact that Penn Badgley just joined Twitter probably makes me way too happy.

-I love that the new season of Orphan Black is getting such great reviews. ”Season one gave us a reason to watch, season two gives us a reason to stay.”

-Speaking of TV, stupid Twitter totally spoiled the stupid twist on stupid Game of Thrones. At least these funny tweets about the big event made me slightly less rage-y.

-In other TV that I missed, a familiar face popped up on last night’s Mad Men. Unfortunately, it didn’t help the ratings. The episode was the least-watched season premiere since 2008.

-I couldn’t watch GoT or Mad Men because I was too busy covering the MTV Awards. The show was kind of a mess (even more so than usual). Jessica Alba pulled a John Travolta and mispronounced Zac Efron’s name, and they didn’t even get the Best Kiss category right.

-The best thing about the MTV Movie Awards was all the new movie trailers and clips it premiered. We got a cute new look at The Fault in Our Stars, new trailers for Blended and Edge Of Tomorrow, and clips from Transformers: Age Of Extinction and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The best was probably this new clip from X-Men: Days Of Future Past, though.

Did Beyonce Give Herself a Thigh Gap on Instagram?

Beyonce thigh gap

-Just when I thought the phrase “thigh gap” was finally fading from the lexicon, Beyonce goes and stirs it all up again with this terribly Photoshopped Instagram pic.

-This headline suggests that Andrew Garfield got “uppity” when asked about his relationship with Emma Stone, but I think he handled himself just fine in the video.

-Jimmy Kimmel sent Drake out on the street to interview people about how much they hate Drake.

-Speaking of Kimmel, he’s going to do a special episode following next week’s Scandal finale. In preparation, he aired the final segment of his telenovela Scandal spoof.

–I guess Justin Long and Amanda Seyfried are still a thing.

-I really liked this article on Jennifer Garner’s transition from ass-kicker to maternal figure (though I think she should go back to ass-kicker — maybe on TV).

-Watch Stephen Colbert talking about feeling sorry for whatever poor sucker ends up getting that Letterman job.

-Josh Charles was tweeting lyrics from my favourite Broken Social Scene song last night and I was worried my heart couldn’t take it.

-Speaking of BSS, here’s  founder Kevin Drew‘s new video for “Mexican Aftershow Party.”

-This casting breakdown story is perfection.

-Oh, here we go: Selena Gomez fired her manager parents.

-Watch the first clip from Girl Meets World and join the rest of us in wondering what the hell happened to Ben Savage’s nose.

-Colin Firth is aging really, really well.

-Aw nuts. Allegiant is being split up into two movies. Not only does it suck that these transparent cash grabs are becoming a big trend, but Divergent hasn’t really been successful enough to justify this. Plus, the final book SUCKS.

-The Simpsons parody of those comically stingy Mad Men promos is great.

-Speaking of Mad Men, here’s a refresher guide in case you forget where last season ended up.

-I wouldn’t have expected AT&T to be the ones to come up with the best True Detective spoof yet…

-The late Philip Seymour Hoffman hunts a terrorist in the new A Most Wanted Man trailer.

-It was a busy week for Reddit AMAs. Robe Lowe’s was “literally” perfect, and Peter Dinklage talked a lot about hummus — and took a question from the girl who played Hilary of Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

-Jack Bauer is back in the extended 24: Live Another Day trailer.

-Last night’s Parks and Rec reaches season 3 levels of awesomeness.

-Chris Martin is winning the PR war by looking incandescently happy in his first public appearance since the split announcement. Gwyneth, not so much.

-Minnie Driver quit Twitter after a photo of her in a bikini spurned a lot of hateful comments.

-Here’s a trailer for Decoding Annie Parker, a cancer story starring Samantha Morton and Aaron Paul. That wig!

Emma Roberts Gets Wild for Elle Canada


-I love the giraffe bathing suit Emma Roberts is sporting on the cover of Elle Canada– and I never thought I’d say that about a one-piece.

-Well, this is a twist: Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie have reportedly decided to call off their divorce.

-Rihanna and Drake have graduated to showing affection in public. Squee!

-Speaking of PDAs, apparently Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s conscious uncoupling means they can still hold hands.

-Meanwhile, a new report claims Chris was the one who pushed to announce their split, while Gwyneth was fine continuing to pretend they were happy.

-Why in the world would anyone dress how Adam Levine wants them to?

-Fashion whippersnapper Tavi Gevinson interviewed Miley Cyrus for the latest issue of Elle.

-Tom Hardy manages to look both hipstery and menacing on the new cover of Esquire. I didn’t think that was possible. Bravo, sir!

-Naya Rivera and Big Sean have called off their engagement – and his people are blaming her “violent fits.” That’s convenient.

-Meanwhile, the split’s already gotten nasty, with her accusing him of stealing a Rolex.

-It’s a bad week for Glee stars’ relationships. Chord Overstreet and Halston Sage have also split.

-This kids’ song from the guys from The Walkmen and The National is way better than any kids’ song deserves to be.

-Julia Louis-Dreyfus responded to the Constitution error on  her Rolling Stone  cover — and did an admirable job of pretending not to care that people were more focused on spell-checking than looking at her naked body.

-Michelle Williams‘ new Louis Vuitton ads are stunning.

-This is a great Q&A with Jon Hamm: “People are like, ‘I want to be like Don Draper.’ You want to be a miserable drunk?”

-Jennifer Garner says her family has noticed a difference with the paps since #NoKidsPolicy became a thing.

-I love and adore the yellow dress Emma Stone wore to the Amazing Spider-Man 2 premiere.

-Emma‘s dream of meeting a Spice Girl just got a little closer to reality. She Facetimed with Mel C and it was adorable.

-David Letterman says he’s “flattered” that CBS chose Stephen Colbert to replace him, and Colbert returned the compliment. CBS, meanwhile, clarified that Colbert won’t be doing his usual character.

-Jon Stewart has nothing but love for Colbert’s next move: “He’s wonderful in Colbert Report, but he’s got gears he hasn’t even shown people yet.”

-Don’t feel bad for Craig Ferguson — he’s probably going to get rich off this anyway.

-Just when I thought I couldn’t love Anna Kendrick more, she tweets about the Step Up movies.

-Katherine Heigl sued a pharmacy chain for $6 million because they tweeted an unauthorized image of her. Is that a thing?!

-Of course Jason Segel and Katie Holmes haven’t been dating for 3 years.

-I think it’s kind of a weird fit for Amy Poehler to be shilling for Old Navy (especially since all their previous commercials feature has-beens), but the adlibs for her latest ad are pretty great.

-Oh good lord. Kimye’s Vogue cover is on track to outsell Beyonce’s.

-It’s possible that this photo of Bruce Campbell and Nathan Fillion just broke the internet.

-The final red band trailer for 22 Jump Street slays me. I’m so in with this movie!

Lupita Nyong’o Covers Marie Claire

lupita nyong'o marie claire

-The May issue of Marie Claire features three covers: Lupita Nyong’o, Kate Mara and Elle Fanning. Not surprisingly, Lupita‘s is the best.

-Gwyneth Paltrow is still wearing her wedding ring, according to her latest Twitter pic. Also, isn’t she supposed to be super protective of her kids’ identity? What changed?!

-I’m not sure why Julia Louis-Dreyfus needs to be naked on the cover of Rolling Stone, but at least she looks damn good at 53.

-Are Taylor Swift parents assholes?

-Tina Fey and Amy Poehler set to reunite on the big screen, playing sisters in The Nest. I want to go to there.

-Meanwhile, Amy and her brother Greg talk about what it’s like to make TV in Sweden.

-Jon Hamm had a predictably adorable reaction to the viral video of his ’90s dating show appearance.

-Diane Kruger can even make ironic t-shirts look hot.

-I like the idea of Anne Hathaway performing lounge singer versions of hip hop songs but I just wish it was…actually funny.

-The trailer for American Blogger will make you angry that the Internet even exists.

-I’m glad to see Monday’s series finale of Being Human got a big ratings spike and became a trending topic on Twitter (I’m crediting at least part of that to the 9,879 tweets I posted during the episode). The finale, like the rest of the show, was uneven and flawed but damn it if I didn’t love it anyway. I don’t know what it was about this season, but it hit me right in the feels.

-Also, I’m hoping Sam Witwer goes on to be a huge star. No one does tortured souls like him.

-Seth Rogen says he has no idea if James Franco‘s Instagram proposition is real: “I am afraid to ask!”

-Meanwhile, Seth’s SNL promos are hilarious. Maybe that’s why they let him go on for more than 5 minutes.

-Amanda Bynes‘s lawyer is denying reports that she has schizophrenia, while her mother says marijuana is to blame for her odd behavior.

-A judge took just 68 seconds to declare former Oasis lead singer Liam Gallagher and his wife Nicole Appleton divorced.

-Adam Brody is coming back to TV! Well, kinda. He’ll be starring in a new series on Amazon. Do we get those in Canada? Cause we’re gonna need to get those in Canada.

-Lindsay Lohan got emotional when Oprah surprised her with a phone call during her Letterman appearance.

-The overall trend is not going away anytime soon. Sigh.

-Not surprising but still great: Game of Thrones has been renewed for two more seasons.

-I’m not going to Coachella this year for the first time in like, 10 years (sad face) but I can stream it online, which is almost the same thing. All the great music, none of the crazy Twitter people grilling me about Robert Pattinson sightings…

-The new trailer for Mad Men is psychedelic and weird.

-I didn’t watch Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD this week, but apparently they used the plot twist of Captain America to change the show in a big way. It didn’t do much for the ratings, though.

-This article about Buffy is so good that Buffy herself tweeted about it.

-Here’s the first teaser for Zach Braff‘s Kickstarted movie Wish I Was Here. Of course it focuses more on a song from The Shins then actual, like, dialogue.

-The new NSFW red-band trailer for Neighbors kind of makes me want to see it.

Scarlett Johansson Talks Nickname, Divorce

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson has once again gone on the record to vent her frustration about her “ScarJo” nickname. “It’s lazy and flippant. And there’s something kind of violent about it.” Yes sweetie, your life is clearly an uphill battle of Sisyphean proportions.

-Meanwhile, ScarJo (sorry sweetie, it’s stuck) also opened up a teeny tiny bit about her and Ryan Reynold’s failed marriage.

-Here’s an unaired SNL sketch from Anna Kendrick’s episode.

-Jimmy Kimmel is pretty much the only person who wants to make out with Johnny Depp these days.

-Congrats to Tom Ford, who secretly wed his partner of 27 years.

-Photographers covering a Lady Gaga event reportedly had to agree to give Gaga final approval before any of their images could be released. I’m not sure she’s understanding the “candid” part of candid photos.

-Beyoncé gives good O-face on the cover of Out’s Power Issue.

-Marisa Tomei lets her neighbors watch her TV when she’s not home because she’s cool like that.

-Why isn’t Anthony Mackie a huge star already? Look how goddamn charming he was on Fallon. (Also, I wish every star would narrate their talk show clips like him. “That’s not me. Fast forward!”)

-Speaking of charming late-night appearances, Mindy Kaling was pretty great on Chelsea Lately last night, where she debuted the “summer bangs”she got to look like part of Pharrell’s crew.

-Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds amped up their cute factor with hats.

-Poor Rob Lowe is complaining about how hard it is to be so very pretty. Let’s hope he somehow finds the will to carry on.

-Just because Jessie J has dated a girl, don’t call her bisexual. She won’t like it.

-Contrary to reports, Kate Mulgrew not a crackpot who thinks the sun revolves around the Earth, and anyone who says otherwise is getting a tampon sandwich.

-Trophy Wife’s Diane is one very large wine glass away from becoming Olivia Pope in this Scandal spoof.

-Cecily Strong is dating her SNL costar Mike O’Brien which is…surprising.

-I don’t hate the piano dress Lindsay Lohan wore on Letterman but to be fair, I’ve taken a stupid amount of Nyquil today so my judgement may be impaired.

-Jennie Garth really does not enjoy waiting in line at nightclubs with the rest of the unwashed masses.

-Paul Rudd appeared on Billy on the Street and asked New Yorkers if they would sleep with him for a dollar.

-The new trailer for Jon Favreau’s Chef is 2-1/2 minutes of food porn featuring Robert Downey Jr. and I want this movie in my eyeballs right now!

Leaked Demi Lovato Topless Photos Are Probably (Hopefully?) Fake

Demi Lovato topless

-Some leaked bedroom photos featuring Demi Lovato and Wilder Valderrama surfaced this weekend, but sharp-eyed observers noticed that her tattoos are on the wrong side, meaning at least one of the photos is probably a fake.

-Demi responded on Twitter by posting (in Spanish) ”I’m strong. I’m a fighter. So don’t underestimate me.”

-The Peaches Geldof story is unbelievably tragic. The 25-year-old leaves two children behind.

-Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were spotted spending the night at a hotel and the interwebs melted into a sea of squees.

-Amy Odell live-tweeted Madonna’s massive disinterest at Miley Cyrus‘ concert on Saturday night, and it was amazing.

-Lindsay Lohan finally admitted to relapsing on last night’s episode of her reality show.

-Naomi Campbell and Michael Fassbender are reportedly dating. Considering both of their histories, this should make for some volatile gossip.

-Amanda Bynes looks happy and healthy on holiday.

-Is Zac Efron using a hot blonde to distract us?

-Maisie Williams was the undisputed MVP of last night’s Game of Thrones premiere. In this new interview, she talks about the new season, dreamy Brad Pitt, and why marriage seems like a trap.

-Meanwhile, the ratings were huge, drawing the best numbers for HBO since the Sopranos finale.

-Anna Kendrick was (pitch) perfect on SNL this weekend. I especially liked the sketches in which she sang (which were basically all of them).

-Speaking of SNL, was Chris Martin  in a relationship with a woman who worked on the show during his marriage?

-Meanwhile, Chris shows off his magic skills in Coldplay’s new video.

-It’s been a rough year for Gwyneth Paltrow. Her grandmother just passed away.

-Before he started dating Lena DunhamJack Antonoff took Scarlett Johansson to the prom.

-I saw Captain America this weekend, which almost makes me want to watch Agents of SHIELD this week to see if it impacts the show. And here I thought I’d never want to watch it again.

-Meanwhile, Captain America 3 will face off against Batman and Superman.

-Aaron Paul’s new movie Hellion is heading to Cannes.

-Kristen Stewart is a redhead now. Welcome! I’ll teach you the secret handshake later.

-The series finale of Being Human airs tonight and I’m seriously not sure if I can deal with another TV show making me cry this month. (I blame The Good Wife!). On the plus side, an indie movie starring two of the show’s three leads comes out this week, so that should soften the blow.

-Is Patrick Stewart holding a Habs cap in this photo?

-Josh Lucas (who has the bluest eyes of anyone I’ve ever met) is not reconciling with estranged wife Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, despite their recent PDA in a park.

-Want to see Jennifer Lawrence as a bridesmaid? Her brother’s wedding was featured in Martha Stewart’s Real Weddings.

-Parks and Rec’s Nick Offerman did a Reddit AMA recently, and it was great.

-Kate Middleton kicked off her tour of Australia and New Zealand in style.

-Speaking of style, Vanessa Hudgens and Lea Michele are reportedly charging $20k to be spotted wearing brands at Coachella.

-There are so many rumours flying around about who’s going to take over Letterman‘s slot. Neil Patrick Harris isn’t ruling it out, Whoopi Goldberg denies being in the running, and Chelsea Handler is reportedly in talks with CBS.

-Tom Hiddleston is reciting Shakespeare for you in latest Jaguar ad. Set stunguns to “swoon.”

-Did you miss Bryan Cranston on last night’s Family Guy? Watch a clip here.

-Speaking of Cranston, here’s your best look yet at Godzilla in this extended trailer.

-The trailer for Damon Lindelof‘s HBO adaptation of The Leftovers looks pretty damn good. I really liked this novel, but I worry that the show will try to explain the mystery instead of just dealing with the aftermath, which made the book so great.

Emily Blunt Opens Up About Motherhood

Emily Blunt Vogue

-Emily Blunt looks amazing in Vogue, which she posed for during her pregnancy.

-Please please please tell me that reports of Tom Cruise grooming Elizabeth Moss to be his Scientology girlfriend are false. STAY AWAY FROM PEGGY!

-Watching James Franco solemnly “apologize” for hitting on a teenager on this morning’s Live with Kelly and Michael sent my cringe muscle into overdrive, especially since the theory that it was all part of a movie promo stunt was inexplicably picking up steam. “I guess I’m just a model of how social media is tricky…I used bad judgement and I learned my lesson.”

-Don’t sass Sarah Jessica Parker on Twitter. She’ll sass you right back.

-Mariah Carey is fronting like she doesn’t know who Kim Kardashian is, which is kind of adorable.

-You must watch this old video of Jon Hamm at the age of 25, sporting some intensely 90s hair and talking about foot massages on a dating game show.

-Speaking of Mad Men stars, January Jones‘ TV daughter has officially started dressing better than her.

-Johnny Depp insists that his wedding to Amber Heard will not be of the “shotgun” variety.

-Speaking of Johnny, pretty much everyone on the Internet has fallen out of love with him because of all this near couch-jumping bullshit. Sad face.

-Ruh roh. Community’s surprisingly hilarious G.I. Joe homage hit a series low in the ratings.

-A new trailer for Orphan Black has arrived, and Tatiana Maslany talks about the new clone in this interview. I’m glad this show is getting so much coverage before its season premiere. 

-Just when I thought the How I Met Your Mother finale couldn’t have been any worse comes news that they had the nerve to cut a Robin Sparkles performance. Grrr!

-Jennifer Lopez outbid ex-boyfriend Diddy for Fuse TV.

-Meanwhile, everyone’s talking about how short Jennifer Lopez‘s dress is, but I can’t stop looking at her shoes. What’s happening there?

-Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne on Game of Thrones, just landed a part in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay–Part 2. Hollywood should give her all the roles.

-The curtain is closing on Glee sooner than expected. The show’s 5th season will be cut short due to crappy ratings.

-Jersey Shore’s Snooki is pregnant with her second child.

-Rumour has it that Stephen Colbert is the frontrunner to replace Letterman on Late Night. Watch Letterman‘s official announcement here.

-In other late night news, Daniel Radcliffe and Jimmy Fallon played Sticky Balls on last night’s show, while Judd Apatow confronted Seth Meyers for denying him his SNL dream.

-Syfy has ordered a new drama based on 12 Monkeys, which is probably a terrible idea.

-Ellen made Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield squirm (adorably, of course) when she questioned them about their relationship. Guys, I had no idea Andrew Garfield had a British accent.

-Michelle Williams looks amazing in Broadway’s Cabaret.

-Rose Byrne looks lovely on the new cover of Elle, where she talks about boyfriend Bobby Cannavale. I always forget that they’re dating, but I like them both so it’s like a recurring happy surprise.

-Scarlett Johansson recorded a cover of that stupid selfie song.

-Here’s the new trailer for HBO’s The Normal Heart, starring Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, and Jim Parsons. It’s probably not a good sign that I’m already weepy.

-Nice! Lupita Nyong’o is the new face of Lancome.

-How did I miss the fact that the ladies of Parks and Rec posed for a Jane Austin-inspired photo shoot?!

-Bryan Cranston is writing a memoir and he promises to ”reveal the secrets and lies that I lived with for six years shooting Breaking Bad.”

Did James Franco Try To Pick Up a Teenager on Instagram?


-This story about James Franco allegedly trying to pick up a 17-year-old girl on Instagram is the stuff that gossip dreams are made of. SO. DAMN. GOLDEN. He responded to the report by all-caps tweeting “I hope parents keep their teens away from me.” Perfection. I mean, totally gross – but perfection.

-Lady Gaga helped Bill Murray check an item off his bucket list by taking a selfie with him on Letterman last night.

-Speaking of Letterman, he just announced his plans to retire from CBS in 2015. I wonder how likely it is that a woman will get his spot? Apparently, Craig Ferguson has right of first refusal.

-Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen shared photos from their tour around New York City to commemorate the end of their Broadway runs. I love these two so much.

-Drake is on a roll this week, releasing yet another song called “Days in the East.” Quick, everyone scour it for Rihanna references!

-Nigella Lawson is reportedly not allowed into the U.S. because of her recent testimony surrounding her drug use. Anthony Bourdain added credibility to the report with a couple of angry tweets.

-Scandal star Tony Goldwyn tries (and fails) to defend Fitz in this interview about the show’s season finale later this month.

-All the weekly magazines are blaming Gwyneth Paltrow for the split because what else is new? Even People magazine has consciously uncoupled from their Most Beautiful star.

-Kate Hudson probably shouldn’t be blamed for the split either.

-Jonah Hill should only do interviews when Channing Tatum is around to make him seem nice.

-I totally forgot that True Blood is a thing that still exists. HBO just announced it’s final season will being airing on June 22.

-In case you were wondering, yes, Mariah Carey hates it when Nick Cannon talks about his past hookups.

-Joe Jonas — who knows a thing or two about growing up in the spotlight — blames Justin Bieber’s dad for his “party animal” behavior.
