Last night Trevor Noah sat at The Daily Show desk for the first time as host, and it went very much okay. He opened with a tribute to Jon Stewart that felt genuine and heartfelt, and then he segued into current events, focusing on the Pope’s trip to the US. There were a couple of bits with correspondents, including new guy Roy Wood, Jr. Full Story

At one point in The Walk, as Philippe Petit steps onto a high wire strung between the towers of the World Trade Center, clouds roll in and obscure the view of New York City, leaving only Petit’s foot in frame as he steps onto the wire, which seems to stretch endlessly into nothing. It’s a striking image, especially when viewed in IMAX 3D, which adds an almost tangible depth to the vast nothing below Petit. Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio spent the weekend in New York. On Sunday he was papped walking down the street with current bonafide, Kelly Rohrbach. He made no attempt to cover his face. He didn’t run around looking for a trash bin to jump into to avoid being photographed. Instead, he just kept walking with his turned out feet and his hippy gait (he’s a hip-swinger), and holding her hand, smiling. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Yesterday was Mid-Autumn Festival, like Chinese Thanksgiving. That’s when we’re supposed to eat moon cakes because it always happens on a full moon. As you know, the moon was a big deal last night because of the lunar eclipse.  Read Full Intro

Taylor Swift brought her 1989 tour home to Nashville this weekend and there was guest upon guest upon guest upon guest, but by far the biggest guest and get of the show was Mick Jagger himself. They performed Satisfaction together. You know how Paul McCartney keeps showing up at everything and performing for everyone? And, like, I know it’s Paul McCartney but…dude… can we keep it special, please? That’s not Mick Jagger. Full Story

London Fields is one of the worst movies I’ve seen this year, and I’ll get to sh*tting on it in a second, but first, an odd thing happened TIFF with this movie. I saw it at a press screening at the festival—Joanna and I were both completely floored by its unmitigated rancidness—but before it premiered for the public, it was pulled from the TIFF lineup because the director, Matthew Cullen, sued the producers Full Story

Celebrity apologies usually come in two flavors: 1) I’m sorry you’re upset, and 2) I’m sorry I got caught (sub-category; I’m sorry you misunderstood). Owning personal responsibility is, depressingly, rare in this strata of humanity, but when Michael B. Jordan found himself the target of public outrage, he offered up a thoughtful apology the likes of which we rarely see from celebrities. Full Story
