Sarah sometimes email-tortures me and Lainey with clips of Jeremy Renner’s music. The movie star-trying-to-be-a-rock star thing isn’t a new genre: Kevin Bacon, Kevin Costner, Johnny Depp, Keanu Reeves, Billy Bob Thornton, Kiefer Sutherland, and Bruce Willis have all done it. Will we be adding Chris Pratt to the list? Chris Pratt, country music guy.
There are headlines about Ed Sheeran getting married; I don’t know if anyone is looking for those headlines. That’s not a knock about Ed – he’s not messy. He doesn’t trade on his private life or his friendships. Remember, as Taylor was calling out Scooter Braun, Ed had a hit with Justin Bieber. He made one comment on social media that he was speaking to Taylor about it privately; I’m curious if he had any advice. Or if she took it. She just posted this for Ed – she doesn’t do this for a lot of people.
Amanda Seyfried’s social media post (which I wrote about here) started making the rounds on PEOPLE and E! and US Weekly, and she followed up with an, um, apology. Or what she is calling an apology. “To the lady in question: I’m sorry for the truly negative feels you’ve endured because of this.” Negative feels! She also wrote that if anyone feels bad, it’s because they don’t know her, not because of what she said. Then she asserts that her point still stands and closes it with a good old “women supporting women” line, the subtext of which is “you aren’t allowed to criticise me.” Then she posted a photo of her child (which she rarely does) to point out that her “post-baby perspective” is on her child, not on her body. What kind of heathen thinks about the body they live in when they have a child?! Think of the children!
Our site manager Emily sent this to me last night. The Lea Michele we know is back.
Jennifer Garner’s tribute to the sad pants that don’t make it to the big leagues (as in into a suitcase for a trip). The lesser textiles.
A MAGA invasion, #metoo men, too many Real Housewives and permit issues – there is trouble afoot in the Hamptons. This is usually the time the Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Seinfeld and that crew decamp there for the summer. I don’t think these nefarious elements mean the end of the Hamptons for them; they’ll just have to find a way to create a tighter social circle. Or an even tighter social circle.
I can’t find the tweet now but someone called the children on Big Little Lies “manic pixie dream kids” and that is absolute perfection. So is this. The toilet paper bangs are genius.
