The Celebrities Would Like To Breakup With Us

On the show today… It’s time to be alert but not alarmed, because there are about to be two Taylor Lautners in the world and yes, for some, we’ve dragged Taylor Swift into this. Plus, Academy Award nominee Jonah Hill has announced that while he has a number of big projects about to be released into the world, he will no longer be doing any press or promotion for them. Jonah has had a particularly bad run in interviews over the years and he’s just one of many celebrities we can see making this same decision going forward. So now we need to talk about the moment we knew celebrities were really done with us. And it’s Weekend Watch time! This week we have a coming of age TV series that will reduce you to tears and a groundbreaking sex dramedy to recommend to you.

Brad Pitt’s ‘Golden Boy’ Era Has Come To A Crashing Halt

On the show today… In news that will thrill elder millennials, Netflix has released the first trailer for Heartbreak High https://www.instagram.com/p/ChYyHbiDedr/, the highly anticipated reimagining of the 90s Australian YA series and you must take a look at it. And in an interesting turn of events, Joe Jonas has given an interview about his partnership with a cosmetic injectable brand, saying he’s attempting to break the taboo around men’s beauty routines. Yes, it’s all hooked on sponsored content, but his words have opened up an interesting conversation about men's faces. Plus, after many years of speculation, the subjects of an anonymous 2016 lawsuit where a woman said she was assaulted by her “then-husband” on a private plane have been revealed as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. The FBI reports about the famous couple contain some very disturbing allegations of assault, so once again we have to discuss why the world refuses to have a negative conversation about Brad Pitt. Even as the evidence continues to pile up against him.

We Must Disagree With Florence Pugh’s New Interview

On the show today… In exciting entertainment news, we’ve today been gifted our first look at two new projects. First up is a sneak peek at The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, followed by a teaser of the new Netflix series Wednesday. Here’s everything you need to know. And Hollywood has fully welcomed Johhny Depp back with open arms, despite some of his troubling past actions being made public in his court case against ex-wife Amber Heard. He is taking on his first directing role in 25 years and will also star in the film alongside Al Pacino. The fallout from this cannot be underestimated. Plus, Florence Pugh is Harper's Bazaar’s new cover star and in an interview entitled Florence Pugh Is Just Being Honest, the actress gets very candid about her break-up with Zach Braff and the reaction to her new movie. But when it comes to her take on these two events, we must respectfully but strongly disagree with her.

Unpacking The Public Failure Of Adele

On the show today… In news that will either find you screaming in your car with excitement or yelling “no one cares”, the John Wick prequel finally has a home and a release date, here’s everything you need to know. And it’s been reported that Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck didn’t settle for a lowkey Las Vegas wedding (complete with dirty bathroom photos) after all. Instead, it looks like they’re planning a lavish three-day wedding this weekend and so it’s time to say goodbye to ‘anti-weddings’ and embrace the gravy train that is opulent public love stories. Plus, Adele has given her first interview https://www.elle.com/culture/music/a40803238/adele-interview-elle-september-cover-2022/ about ‘the worst moment of her career’ and talked to Elle magazine about the last-minute cancellation of her Las Vegas shows earlier this year. Her words are a lesson on the importance of sitting in public failure, but also a reminder of the real reason people were primed to turn against Adele.

The World’s Most Unsolicited D*ck Pic

On the show today... Kevin Federline has shared and then deleted videos seemingly in an effort to show Britney Spears arguing with their sons, Sean and Jayden, which has led to criticism about using their kids as pawns. Plus, it’s the photo everyone is talking about. Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee shared a very explicit d*ck pic on Instagram last night, which has us shocked, amused and pondering a very blatant double standard, all at the same time. And it’s Friday which means we have two Weekend Watch recommendations for you! One series reimagining a beloved 90s film, and a satirical movie that will have you questioning influencers and internet culture.

Taylor Swift Can’t ‘Shake Off’ This Lawsuit

On the show today… Kyle Sandilands and fiancé Tegan Kynaston are officially parents, welcoming a baby boy named Otto this morning, with Kyle making a very chaotic exit from his radio show to as Tegan went into labour. Plus, Mindy Kaling has given an interview to Marie Claire, where she discusses the negative response she received when her sitcom, The Mindy Show, first aired in 2012. It goes to show how different the media landscape looked, just a decade ago. And a copyright lawsuit filed against Taylor Swift and her 2014 single Shake It Off has been making news this week, based on two lines in the song's chorus. It's the latest in a long line of recent music lawsuits, so we discuss where they all came from and what they mean for the music industry.

The Sex Scene Conversation We Shouldn't Be Having

On the show today… Congratulations are in order for Taika Waititi and Rita Ora, who have reportedly married in an intimate ceremony in London.  Plus, fans are campaigning for Schapelle Corby to be the next Bachelorette. We discuss why that wouldn't be surprising, and why we'd be on board with that twist. And there is a lot of chatter about intimacy coordinators on film and TV sets this week, after actor Sean Bean said they "spoiled the spontaneity" in sex scenes. We consider the tone deafness of this comment, why sex scenes should be treated the same as fight scenes and how big of a difference this new job title has made in a post #MeToo world.

But with the albumin release comes a new wave of controversy. Plus, following the Kylie Jenner double private plane backlash, a list of the worst private jet CO2 emissions from celebrities in 2022 has been released with Taylor Swift topping the list and then defending herself in a statement.

The Watch: Stranger Things Season Four

Welcome to this bonus episode of The Spill! Today’s episode of The Watch is all about season four on Netflix. The highly anticipated fourth season of the beloved science fiction horror series arrived on our screens this month, introducing us to a terrifying new villain and reuniting our favourite Hawkins gang as they set off on another adventure. In this episode we discuss why some major plot points were changed at the last minute, the biggest risk the writers failed to take, what all those plot twists really meant and which character should have died at the end.

Inside Florence Pugh and Olivia Wilde’s Secret ‘Feud’

On the show today… Canadian pop star Shawn Mendes has today canceled his entire Wonder tour, which was set to take place across North America and Europe throughout 2022 and 2023, to focus on his well-being. Here’s why that is so important. Plus, someone on Beyonce's team is definitely getting fired today. Tomorrow is the release date for Renaissance, Beyonce’s first album in six years and the anticipation for this release has been at an all-time high. But the album’s roll-out has not gone to plan. And the world is convinced that Olivia Wilde and Florence Pugh are at each other’s throats and are currently locked in a brutal feud after working together on the movie Don’t Worry Darling. The allegations have to do with Harry Styles, an on-set altercation, and some questionable current social media posts, but there’s much more going on here than just two famous women who allegedly don’t get along.

Brad Pitt’s Skirt Has A Hidden Agenda

On the show today… Lizzo covers the new issue of Elle UK, which features a stunning photoshoot and insight into her new music.
