Nothing says, “I’m not into celebrity life” quite like posing for a glossy fitness magazine. If we examine the Men’s Health demographic, how do you think they know Justin – from his prestige HBO show, or his marriage to one of the biggest female stars of the last 20 years? At least they stuck with his aesthetic – maybe that was the compromise. Full Story

I’ve been meaning to post about Catherine Zeta- Jones’ “interview” in The Mirror, particularly this quote: “One thing I’m not is humble any more. I’m sick of being humble. I really am. ‘So sorry I’m rich, so sorry I’m married to a movie star, so sorry I’m not so bad looking. Full Story

It was Father’s Day on Sunday, and I got a lot of enjoyment out of seeing how celebs subtly shaded one another, especially the “friendly exes.” It’s a true joy when someone like Jennifer Garner decides to jump in. Sure the caption is nice, but look at this photo. It’s too close, his eyes are closed and he’s looking down. Full Story

I saw this Chad Ocho tweet and thought he was just generally knowledgeable about nail polish. But he’s actually really into Rihanna’s feet, to the point of obsession. This is just a sample – there are many more. I saw Oceans 8 last night & the movie was phenomenal, Sandra Bullocks determination was admirable & Rihanna had a scene painting her toes & I’m almost positive she used OPI “alpine snow” or OPI “it’s in the clouds”, her acting was superb as well. Full Story

I love, love, love Rachel Bloom (if Lainey allowed emojis, I would insert a hundred hearts here). Yes Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is funny and brilliant and smart and difficult, but that isn’t the only reason why.    Rachel is the rare celebrity who spends her time in interviews engaging, rather than explaining. Full Story

As Lainey mentioned yesterday, Instagram is now a dating service. I am very into performative digital flirting and fully support millennials and their thirst traps. Which brings me to this: Cazzie David “liked” one of John Mayer’s posts. Maybe they are friends, maybe they go away back. Full Story

I’m not one to pick sides in a theatre fight but how dare you Neil Patrick Harris. How dare you. Who is the woman in the top hat backstage at @TheTonyAwards? Gideon remarked that she says ‘like’ and ‘oh my god’ a lot. Full Story
