I wrote earlier about the British royal family’s ability to “carry on”. And this is what they’re doing, even though there may probably be eight new Thomas Markle developments between now and Saturday. Full Story

It has been almost a month to the day since Shawn Mendes snapped and made it impossible for me to pretend he doesn’t exist. Since Shawn released his two latest, strongest and sexiest singles, In My Blood and Lost in Japan, he has only continued to prove that he’s worthy of our attention. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

  The Warner Bros presentation at CinemaCon is scheduled for today. And I’m hoping that that’s why the Crazy Rich Asians trailer was released yesterday – because the studio is, presumably, beginning to build the hype around the movie in front of theatre owners ahead of its August release.  Read Full Intro

Drake does it again

He’s so f-cking good at this. By “this” I mean everything. During a weekend that belonged to Cardi B, Drake still managed to drop a hit song and viral video without looking like the dick who was trying to hijack Cardi B’s moment. Drake’s Nice For What music video makes Drake look good, sure, but at its core, it’s a celebration of dope ass women. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

  A cop and a killer are obsessed with each other. It becomes less about the catching of the criminal than it is about the connection between them. You’ve seen this so many times: Heat, starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino is a good example, also Point Break, and Se7en, and every Bond movie, and most recently Manhunt: Unabomber.  Read Full Intro

The Weeknd dropped a surprise six-song album on Friday called My Dear Melancholy, and it is exactly as full of heartbreak and angst as it sounds. The good thing is that musically, The Weeknd is at his best when he's being all broken and angsty. The dark and gloomy Abel we were introduced to back in his mixtape days is back and we have Selena Gomez to thank. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Over the last few weeks we’ve seen the power of youth, potential, and emerging talent manifesting a possibility that previous generations have laid the groundwork for. I thought about this when Buffy Sainte-Marie came on stage last night during the Juno Awards.  Read Full Intro

Jessie Reyez + Daniel Caesar forever

That’s what I would be scrawling all over a notebook while day dreaming today if I still scrawled in notebooks while daydreaming. For me, the highlights of last night’s generally pleasant and refreshingly inclusive Juno awards were indisputably Jessie Reyez and Daniel Caesar, separately and together. Full Story

In the good way. It has become increasingly evident to me this week that I can no longer ignore Shawn Mendes. Of course, he’s been around. Shawn Mendes has a legion of hopelessly devoted fans (the Mendes Army) who pledged allegiance to him years ago and will probably yell at me for admitting that I only started caring about him approximately 24 hours ago. Full Story
