My personal goddess, Shirley Manson, and Fiona Apple covered You Don’t Own Me, and now I want this to be on an album (with the proceeds to go to RAINN) and I have so many ideas for other songs and artists and ohmygod, I just want this so much! - (Jezebel)
Pink sang her flu-filled lungs out last night. And also spit out a lozenge on (inter)national television. - (LG)
Since I just mentioned Pink, now I’m going to talk about blue - specifically, Jenny McCarthy’s blue hair. I don’t have an opinion on what color people dye their hair; you do whatever makes you feel good about yourself. I’m just posting this because, is it just me? I would not have recognized Jenny McCarthy if the article didn’t name her or she wasn’t with Wahlberg. - (Celebitchy)
Set your DVRs and prep your cocktails, Lifetime has cast its Meghan and Harry for the story of their meeting and courtship. Not yet confirmed: Whether Courtney will be liveblogging it or not. (PleaseSayYes! PleaseSayYes!) - (VF)
Another good celebrity couple splits, but as we came to expect from Sarah Silverman and Michael Sheen, they did it with a dash of humor, a Gwyneth Paltrow reference and on the best of terms.
The great @michaelsheen & I consciously uncoupled over Christmas. I mean, not “over Christmas” - like that wasn’t the fight that ended it. No fight. We just live in different countries & it got hard. Felt we should just tell y’all so u stop askin, “How’s Michael/How’s Sarah?”— Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) February 5, 2018
BUT in positive news of celebrity love, Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani celebrated their Oscar nomination today with a class photo.
Evidently, some people got pissy about the T-Mobile commercial that ran during the Super Bowl. Oddly, equality, connection, and change are considered partisan issues and specifically LIBRULS. Whatever. - (TMS)
Margot Robbie carried an adorable (and PRICEY!) bunny purse to the Peter Rabbit premiere. - (GFY)
Sadly, John Mahoney, known to most as Marty Crane on Frasier, has passed away. He will be missed. - (Dlisted)
Cannonballers have a way of drawing their friends and family into the Read. MisterRobit, husband of longtime Cannonballer Blingle Bells, recommends Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand as a true three-star read, average but enjoyable. He is unlikely to read more Helen Simonson, who used "the most pretentious thesaurus she could find". Can you recommend a better character driven novel about grumpy old men? (Cannonball Read 10)
