Dear Gossips,

The Arthur Ashe Courage Award was presented last night at the ESPYs to 141 “sister survivors” who came forward, who pushed back, who refused to accept that their trauma wasn’t valid and that their pain was an insignificant by-product in the pursuit of the only goals: “medals and reputation”.  Read Full Intro

According to OK! Australia, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth broke up because he wanted to have babies and she wasn’t ready. The reliability of any OK! Magazine, in any country, is suspect. But especially Australia. Sorry, Aussies, your gossip publications are pretty low on accuracy. But Liam is Australian?! In this case, it doesn’t matter. Full Story

I have not seen Mamma Mia! and I don’t know enough ABBA to make a go of it at karaoke, and I hate musicals, so Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again had a lot of ground to make up with me. I sat through the whole movie, and I only wanted to puncture my eardrums once, so it did make up most of that ground. Full Story

At the 2017 Emmys, Issa Rae had just been named CoverGirl’s latest face. Issa was asked about what working with CoverGirl meant to her in almost every red carpet interview that night.  “I remember just being in high school, seeing the ads, but you never, ever imagine 'someday I could be a CoverGirl. Full Story

Joel Edgerton forever separated himself from being confused with Sam Worthington when it turned out he’s a good filmmaker with his debut feature film, The Gift. Now he’s following up that quasi-exploitation horror flick with Boy Erased, which he adapted from Garrard Conley’s memoir about being sent to gay conversion camp. Full Story

Let’s recap:  Last Friday, Taylor was papped leaving her New York City apartment, like old times, with Gigi Hadid and other members of her squad. It’s been a while since we’ve seen this – there was a sleepover the night before, then they hit up her hometown, and then the girls were at her show that night. Full Story

After years of pop cultural dominance, we’re adjusting to a new reality: Comic-Con is no longer a major industry event. Oh, the magazines still feature glossy previews and there are parties and “activations” galore, but at this point Comic-Con is a thing because we say it’s a thing, not because it’s actually driving a cultural moment. Full Story

Jennifer Lopez was with Alex Rodriguez at the MLB All-Star Game in DC last night. Look at her. She is unreal. It’s her birthday next week, she’s turning 49 years old. COME ON.
