-On the fourth day of the trial in which a former radio DJ is suing Taylor Swift, claiming her allegations that he groped her butt during a meet-and-greet cost him his job, the singer took the stand to testify — and she was awesome. This asshole should have just been grateful that all he lost was his job, but instead he decided to try to make some money off of it as if she wasn’t going to own him in court.
-I really, really hate the outfit Marie Claire stuck Emma Stone in on their cover (what’s with that hat?!), but the inside photos are lovely.
-Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder are officially parents to a girl, who they (unsurprisingly) named Bodhi Soleil. Oh, and Ian says he’s totally ready for babies because he has kittens.
-This is very sweet: Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris, Évelyne Brochu, Kristian Bruun and more of the Orphan Black cast and crew praise the importance of the show’s fans, known as the #CloneClub
-Oh my god, Ringer did an oral history of the time a dog ate a heart on One Tree Hill and this might be the best thing I’ve ever read! My favourite part: [Chad Michael Murray declined to comment for this article.]
-Channing Tatum busted some Magic Mike-style moves in a gas station convenience store. Bless him.
-Justin Theroux may not be very fun to live next to. His neighbor filed a complaint about endless barking from the actor’s rescue dogs left isolated for long periods, dropping heavy weights on the floor at 3 AM, and angry outbursts.
-The Crown season 2 trailer is here, if you’re craving some very slow-paced royal drama.
-Britney Spears was visibly shaken up after a man rushed on stage mid-concert. In the video, you can hear her ask, “Is something OK? What’s going on? He’s got a gun?”
-Kylie Jenner‘s makeup brand made $420 million in just 18 months, and it’s only getting bigger.
-Halle Berry says Storm and Wolverine were lovers in the X-Men films. This feels more like head canon/wishful thinking than fact.
-Paris Hilton is gonna have a reality show again? Who wants that? (Speaking of Paris Hilton, I recently listened to a great podcast in which a publicist and a tabloid editor talk about her gossip heyday. The most fascinating thing is that they used to meet for lunch once a week to plan out coverage of starlets…)
-Yass Kween! You can now buy Broad City-branded sex toys.
-With news that Selena Gomez and Elle Fanning are joining Woody Allen’s new project comes this interesting piece on why young stars still want to work with him. They shouldn’t.
-Drew Barrymore‘s interview about wine wasn’t THAT bad. This feels very nit-picky to me. (Or maybe I just have really, really low expectations of celebrities who have their own wine labels.)
-Hollywood is calling this box office season The Summer Of Hell. Really? Cause it seems to me like a lot of small-budget indies are doing just fine.
-Better Things’ Season 2 trailer has arrived. This show kind of fell under the radar but I adored the first season.
-I fully agree with this article. When it comes to TV shows, plot is bullshit.
-Jimmy Kimmel asked Americans to find North Korea…and they pointed at Canada.
-James Corden and Jeffrey Tambor recreated the Brandy/Monica video “That Boy Is Mine” with “The Boyega Is Mine” with John Boyega and it literally made my entire day.
