LINKS! Worst Met Gala looks, Sandra Bland video, Common sexual assault…

LAINEY GOSSIPGwyneth Paltrow didn’t have one of the worst Met Gala looks of all time — but, given that it looks like she didn’t get the memo about this year’s theme, she definitely topped the Worst list for 2019

GO FUG YOURSELFAlmost everyone who wore Louis Vuitton to the Met Gala could vie for a second-place tie right behind Gwyneth: “Every year, I feel like Louis Vuitton just packs its people off to the Met in a bunch of its regular stuff.”

VOXIt turns out that Sandra Bland filmed the traffic stop that led to her arrest and subsequent death in a Texas jail in July of 2015. The video wasn’t made public until this week, and has set off a whole new round of protests over Bland’s treatment and concerns about police force

LINKS! RHOP Season 4 premiere, Game of Thrones’ deaths, RIP Peter Mayhew…

REALITY TEAThe RHOP Season 4 premiere aired last night, soaking up everyone in the greater television watching audience not invested in Game of Thrones. It was really good! There was plenty of shade! Ashley and Michael continue to be awkward AF! If you thought Season 3 was amazing, there’s a ton to look forward to this year

CELEBITCHYIn other recap news, Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 4 was entitled “The Last of the Starks.” It also featured plenty of shade and awkwardness, but with a touch more murder than RHOP’s return

VOXAs usual for GoT, the newest episode comes with plenty of controversy: “‘The Last of the Starks’ sacrificed a beloved character to further an alarming plot twist. Not everyone’s on board.”

THE BLEMISHRIP to Chewbacca actor and all-around beloved guy Peter Mayhew, who died at home last week at the age of 74. (Mayhew’s family didn’t announce his death until several days later.) If that news didn’t bring a tear to your eye, his Star Wars cast mates’ tributes will

THE BLASTThese American Idol winner contract details are pretty interesting, primarily because of how little money the winner and runner-up actually get both for themselves and as a budget for their albums

LAINEY GOSSIPI’m not sure what mood it is, but these photos of Keira Knightley in a leopard print dress baggy enough to double for a burlap sack if you turned it inside out are a mood indeed

LINKS! Mayochella at the BBMAs, Secret royal baby, Channing Tatum naked…

DLISTEDIn what’s now more or less officially dubbed Mayochella at the BBMAs, Taylor Swift opened the Billboard Music Awards with a routine pretty heavily inspired by / ripped off from Beyonce’s Homecoming set

LAINEY GOSSIPAlso at the BBMAs, Madonna and Paula Abdul drew plenty of raves: the former for the hologram-laden performance of “Medellin”; the latter for closing the show with a bang so big you won’t care that she’s clearly lip-synching

GO FUG YOURSELFFinally, here’s almost every red carpet look from the Billboard Music Awards (Cardi B’s ass, which stole the show later on in the evening and broke social media afterward, is downright demure here)

CELEBITCHYAs is the case with any high-profile celebrity couple expecting a child, there’s a ton of gossip out there about Dutchess Meghan and Prince Harry having already had their baby in secret and waiting for just the right time to announce it. And, as is also the case in almost every one of these situations not involving the Kardashians, the gossip is totally bogus

THE BLEMISHChanning Tatum lost a game of Jenga to his girlfriend and had to post on Instagram a photo of her choice, so naturally she went with the one with Channing Tatum naked and cupping his dick and balls in the shower

REALITY TEAEvidently Real Housewives of New Jersey co-stars and former friends / newfound enemies Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub got into a fire-and-water-throwing argument while filming the new season

THE BLEMISHI know it’s the obvious thing to say here, but is it really any surprise that Kanye is considering founding his own religion? He already acts like a savior and the Kardashians already have their own church; this would just be the next logical step

JEZEBELThe headline says it all: “Man Who Kept Teen Girl as Sex Slave in Dog Cage Will Not Go to Prison”

CELEBITCHYIt wouldn’t matter if 50-year-old Helena Christensen looked anything short of amazing wearing a bustier in public (though she did look amazing); people shat upon her for being 50 and wearing a bustier in public. Helen also took the clapback high road, so, more props

VOXTaylor Swift’s new single is out (along with its accompanying music video). It’s called “ME!” — yes, the caps are intentional — and, in case you couldn’t tell, it’s about “embracing your individuality and celebrating it and owning it.” Has anyone who’s ever seen Taylor Swift thought otherwise?

CELEBITCHYOlivia Munn decided to punch way down and attack Go Fug Yourself after maybe the nicest and most snark-free fashion blog in the history of the internet said it didn’t like her outfit. I’ve read this a ton of times now and I still can’t figure out why Munn would care or take offense to such an extent

LAINEY GOSSIPSpeaking of strange, potentially indefensible choices, the producers of the next James Bond movie chose yesterday — the day of the Avengers: Endgame release, the NFL Draft, and increasingly bananas / incredible Game of Thrones theory-conspiracies — to announce the new cast

JEZEBELThe Real Housewives of Potomac is back in about a week and a half, and the taglines have been released. Some of them are questionable?

THE BLEMISHBlac Chyna has apparently been calling up assorted media outlets to let them know that she’s going to Harvard to study business. Harvard, upon getting wind of this, was quick to announce that no, she really isn’t.

LINKS! Game of Thrones death theory, Netflix dropping favorites, Cosby wants out…

CELEBITCHYThe most popular Game of Thrones death theory for the big White Walker battle this weekend is that all the Stark corpses in the Winterfell crypt will rise from the dead and attack all the people hiding down there. But it’s hardly the only Game of Thrones death theory involving what will probably be this very bloody show’s most bloody episode

JEZEBELAs more and more networks launch their own streaming services, fewer and fewer of those networks’ beloved hit shows will remain on Netflix.

LAINEY GOSSIPRead carefully the tea leaves that are this week’s crop of Game of Thrones still frames from the next episode.
