Following the surprise billion-dollar success of Zootopia—and the inevitable domination of Pixar’s Finding Dory—Disney will cap their (outrageous box office bonanza) year in animation with a new princess movie, Moana. It’s about a Polynesian princess, Moana, it features a mythical Maori figure, Maui, and it’s set in the Pacific Islands, so it must be time for Disney’s once-a-generation effort at producing a non-white princess. Full Story

“I am inimitable, I am an original” You could be forgiven if you felt a little overwhelmed by the amount of Hamilton coverage lately. It’s so ubiquitous because Lin-Manuel Miranda and the show Hamilton are at once separate entities and inextricably linked.  Miranda won two Tonys personally last night, Best Score and Best Book, that are both incredibly deserved. Full Story

I’ve been resistant to Carpool Karaoke. I don’t know why, exactly, I like James Corden - it just seemed like the kind of viral thing you can ‘get’ without ever having to actually watch it. Full Story

I cannot tell you how much this casting delights me. I never think of Emily Blunt as being super-British, which is ridiculous because of course she’s British and also how do you gauge the Brit-ness of someone? But I guess, as opposed to Adele or Stella McCartney or someone who is overtly at home in London, she seems more like she’s ‘from everywhere’. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

TIME Magazine released its list of the 100 Most Influential yesterday. As you know, the list is divided into 5 categories: Pioneers, Titans, Artists, Leaders, and Icons. And, to me, what’s more interesting than the list itself is how they group the people on the list and under which headings.  Read Full Intro

You know how, when everyone really likes a thing, someone gets jealous or sick of how well that thing is doing, and there’s a backlash? Jennifer Lawrence, Scandal, Paleo? Well, someone decided it was time for a Hamilton backlash—except they really picked the wrong battle. The open call for the upcoming Chicago/London/touring productions of the show calls for “Non-White Men and Women, ages 20s to 30s Full Story

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Emma Watson had a conversation for #HeforShe, the U.N. gender equality initiative for which Emma is a vocal and active representative. The interview, in four parts, is about an hour(!) long, and really becomes an in-depth discussion of Hamilton, the references, the inspirations…all through a ‘feminist and equality’ prism. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Goal for the day: avoid Duana. Not because I don’t love her, obviously I do. But because the cast of Hamilton went to the White House yesterday, performing at the invitation of the President and the First Lady to an audience that included educators and students, to tell the “story for all of us, and about all of us”.  Read Full Intro

Book signing anxiety is real! (Unless you are J.K. Rowling or something.) I have a signing at Barnes & Nobel at The Grove tomorrow at 730! I'm so nervous no one will come. I might pay people like a Ben Carson rally — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 22, 2016 Full Story
