Rihanna doesn’t do a lot of interviews. She’s done some major interviews, sure. But you know she’s selective. And you know we don’t actually hear her speak at length very often. She’s promoting an animated film called Home though. So there are some press commitments. One of those was showing up on Good Morning America today with co-stars Steve Martin and Jim Parsons. Full Story

Selena Gomez was in Paris today for the Louis Vuitton presentation. Last night the new video for her song with Zedd, I Want You To Know, was released online. She’s dancing. She’s sweating. She changes multiple times. To me it looks like an advertisement for GUESS by Marciano. These are the cheesiest clothes. Full Story

There's a story going around right now that Taylor Swift has insured her legs for $40 million. The source is the National Enquirer. But since it's about Taylor and seemingly so random and, well, she gives us pictures to use of her legs so often, the report is getting picked up everywhere. For my generation - and that means those of us born before 1980 - the one person we associate with "leg insurance" is Mary Hart of Entertainment Tonight. Full Story

In January, the cast of Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters reboot/sequel/whatever was announced, and for the most part, everyone was excited about a lady ghostbusting squad. For the most part—there were some whiny diaper baby man-tears shed over women getting their period blood all over the uber-masculine (eye roll) cultural relic that is Ghostbusters. Full Story

I spent some time yesterday thinking about the Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio situation while hopped up on painkillers. I’m telling you, it was a mental workout. I got a lot done in my mind. Leo ended last week with a story about how he’s preparing to play Billy Milligan in The Crowded Room about the guy who had 24 personalities and used that defence in court. Full Story

Nicholas Hoult was photographed on the set of Top Gear yesterday in Sussex for the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment. There was a training session with the Stig. And then he did his laps. The final time, obviously, will air on the show. Like you, I tell myself that I would kick ass on this challenge. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. I’m not totally sure what he’s promoting. But he’s a great talk show guest. Good energy, quippy, fun, and he’s hilarious during Egg Roulette, which might be the best game Fallon has on his list. And it’s already a really strong list. Full Story

Taylor Swift was recently interviewed by the Telegraph in the UK. She stays on message: my friends are the priority, I don’t want a boyfriend right now, I’m standing up for art, etc etc etc. But the quote that’s getting the most traction, as you would expect, is the one about Katy Perry. Full Story

These photos from last week were just released today. It’s Justin Timberlake visiting his wife on the set of The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea. The photographers are calling it a “surprise”. Look at that smile, how happy she is that he was there, that he came to see her. It’s like a reward! When’s the next time we’ll be seeing Mr Timberlake on a movie set? They announced Spinning Gold about Neil Bogart, what?, two years ago? And then there were reports that Spike Lee was in talks to direct. Full Story
