That sounds dirtier than I intended. Zayn Malik has a new single called “Fingers” and it’s all angst-ridden and rife for interpretation. The song isn’t great but I wish it was because the lyrics are perfect for 2018. Full Story

A Star is Born is a big movie. It has emerged as the Oscar Best Picture frontrunner – for now. Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga will receive multiple nominations. But that doesn’t mean that they’re running away with it. And they shouldn’t run away with it. Anybody running away with anything is no fun for anyone. Full Story

Melissa McCarthy is best known as a comedienne, but really she’s a good actress with a talent for playing cranks and borderline unpleasant, blunt characters. She excels when she’s playing someone who says and does as she pleases, so Can You Ever Forgive Me? is right up her alley. Marielle Heller’s second feature adapts Lee Israel’s memoir (from a script by Nicole Holofcener and Jeff Whitty), recounting her days as a literary forger. Full Story

Director David Gordon Green continues his hopscotch through genre with a sequel to Halloween, John Carpenter’s 1978 horror flick that basically launched the slasher sub-genre. Forty years later, the baton passes to Green who, along with collaborators Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley, brings back the craft and careful compositions of the original. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Mariah Carey is releasing a new album November 16 called Caution. Which means she’ll be on a promotional push for it through the holidays, her favourite season. Her own season. The first two songs off the album, “GTFO” and “With You”, didn’t do much.  Read Full Intro

Bad Times at the El Royale, Drew Goddard’s follow-up to The Cabin in the Woods is at once completely like that movie and nothing like that movie.

Sean “Diddy” Combs and Cassie Ventura were together for 11 years. That number is higher than I expected and every time I’ve read it in a story about their breakup, I’ve had to pause and be like, “11 YEARS? Damn.” As Lainey pointed out, that timeline makes Cassie REAL young when they got together. Full Story
