Okay, this is precious: Kelly Clarkson’s kids ask Jason Momoa if he knows Ariel

Okay, this is precious: Kelly Clarkson’s kids ask Jason Momoa if he knows Ariel

Kelly Clarkson appears to have a hit on her hands with her new talk show; when she’s not performing song requests from her audience, she is, like most hosts, entertaining guests. When she had Jason Momoa on this week, Clarkson couldn’t resist having her Aquafan kids, River and Remy, on to ask him their burning Aquaman questions.

The whole thing is pretty adorable, with Remy too...

Behold, the world’s greatest student government campaign video

Behold, the world’s greatest student government campaign video

Granted, if you’re running for president and vice president of Harvard’s UC (that’s Undergraduate Council), you know you have to ramp up your campaign several notches. Since you’re at Harvard, you probably are an overachiever who already knows how to do that. Still, it’s impossible not to be impressed by the campaign video of UC president and vice president candidates James and Ify,...

Shawn Mendes only improves Taylor Swift’s sublime “Lover” in this new remix

Shawn Mendes only improves Taylor Swift’s sublime “Lover” in this new remix

The title track on Taylor Swift’s most recent album is a definite highlight: “Lover,” co-produced by Bleachers’ Jack Antanoff, is both a callback to her country roots and a modern folksy love song in its own right. How to make the captivating strain even better? Add a corresponding vocal from fellow pop sensation Shawn Mendes and make it a duet; the remix version was just released yesterday.

We can thank Greta Thunberg and Jane Fonda for Collins Dictionary’s word of the year

We can thank Greta Thunberg and Jane Fonda for Collins Dictionary’s word of the year

When you think of a word to sum up 2019, a few immediately come to mind: “fascism,” “emoluments,” “impeachment,” perhaps. But if we look past the quickly piling-up issues related to American democracy, the whole globe has larger problems. Accordingly, when Collins Dictionary announced its 2019 “word of the year” it went with “climate strike” (two words technically, but we’ll allow it).

Even with Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader in the sleigh, Disney’s Noelle is no Christmas miracle

Even with Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader in the sleigh, Disney’s Noelle is no Christmas miracle

The list of holiday classics released in the last century is depressingly low: Elf immediately comes to mind, Love Actually if you can stomach all the British sappiness, maybe Bad Santa for a bit of counterprogramming. Which isn’t to suggest that the yuletide season is underrepresented on screen. Even beyond the multitude of holiday movies that Hallmark and Lifetime churn out ever year ,

Read this: Billie Lourd talks about growing up with Princess Leia

It’s been quite a week, so if you’d like to wrap it all up with a good cry, have we got the read for you. Brave Billie Lourd wrote an essay for Time magazine: “Billie Lourd on Becoming the Keeper of Princess Leia” in advance of the release of the final Star Wars film.

Zoe Saldana to star in Reese Witherspoon’s new Netflix production, From Scratch

Reese Witherspoon’s Oprah-like efforts to take over multiple worlds of media continue. She’s drawing on a volume from her own Reese’s Book Club to create a new Netflix limited series: Tembi Locke’s autobiographical romance From Scratch, which sounds like a cross between Under The Tuscan Sun and Love Story.

Hulu’s first look at Shrill season 2 includes roller skates and more amazing outfits

When we last saw our Shrill heroine Annie (Aidy Bryant) at the end of season one, she was on a bit of a high: She quit her toxic job after pubbing her explosive “Hello, I’m Fat” post, kicked off a promising relationship with Ryan (Luka Jones), and even confronted her online troll. Shrill and Annie and her enviable wardrobe will return with an eight-episode season two in January, and as Hulu...
