Lena Dunham maybe got married this weekend

If you read it in the tabloids, you know it's got to at least maybe potentially be true. "Sources" who spoke with People and Page Six claim that this weekend, Girls creator Lena Dunham married her boyfriend of "a few months," an English-Peruvian musician named Luis Felber (known professionally as Attawalpa). Dunham and Felber, both 35, made their official debut as a couple only in August, though Dunham has spoken gushingly about her partner. Apparently Felber "hinted at the special occasion early Sunday morning by posting the song 'This Will Be Our Year' by The Zombies on his Instagram Story with heart and alien emojis," People writes, and while that seems irrefutable enough (???), "reps for Dunham did not immediately respond to ... request for comment."

Watch a Haim sister and Philip Seymour Hoffman's son make their debuts in the Licorice Pizza trailer

The first trailer for the new Paul Thomas Anderson movie Licorice Pizza is now available for people who don't live in Los Angeles or London. In it, you might see a woman who looks vaguely familiar until you place that, yes, she is one of the sisters in the band Haim. Alana Haim, 29, stars as Alana Kane, one of the protagonists in the film alongside Cooper Hoffman, who looks eerily like his father, the late Philip Seymour Hoffman. Anderson, notably, had become "almost a full-time collaborator" with Haim (the band) before Licorice Pizza, including directing a number of their music videos and taking the photo that's used as the album art for their 2020 LP, Women in Music Pt. III. The movie marks both Alana Haim and Cooper Hoffman's feature film debuts, although if it's anywhere as successful as PTA's previous feature, the six-time Oscar-nominated Phantom Thread, then it won't be their last, either. Watch the trailer here.

Noel Gallagher claims he'd consider an Oasis reunion if his brother was a hologram

Another way of saying "pigs fly" is saying "when Oasis reunites," since it's well known that brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher loathe each other ("They repeatedly shout 'f--k off' and talk about how they hate each other," Pitchfork helpfully explains). But that might not mean you have no chance of ever hearing "Wonderwall" live: Noel Gallagher told the BBC that he'd consider performing alongside Liam … if Liam was a hologram. "I don't know if people know that, he's not actually real. ... But yeah, of course I'd do it," Noel said. "If anything ever changes, trust me, he would be the first to let people know about it." And hey, the nice thing about holograms? They can't complain on Twitter when you turn down 100 million pounds to do a reunion tour.

Cameron Diaz insists she isn't attracted to her husband's identical twin

Cameron Diaz has cleared up a question that perennially plagues internet denizens: "If your spouse/significant other has an identical twin, are you attracted to their twin as well?" The actress is married to Benji Madden, who she met through his identical twin brother, Joel Madden and his wife, Nicole Richie. Despite both brothers looking and dressing similarly, and both being in the band Good Charlotte, Diaz insists that Benji and Joel are "not the same, they're so different. Even though they're twins, they're very, very different obviously." Diaz elaborated on the Anna Faris Is Unqualified podcast, explaining that when she saw Benji "walking towards me and I was like, 'Huh, he's hot, I haven't seen him before'" but that it's "who he was, that's what made me really be like, 'Oh you, you're special.'"

Machine Gun Kelly appeared to punch a fan at the Louder Than Life Festival

In the past month, Machine Gun Kelly has picked fights with MMA fighter Conor McGregor and Slipknot — culminating this weekend in Louisville with the singer seemingly whacking a fan. MGK was being booed by fans (or rather, Slipknot fans) at the Louder Than Life Festival on Sunday when he dropped into the crowd to perform. "[A] few people appeared to jump the barrier and rush the rapper turned rocker, prompting him to deck one of them mid-song as security tried to hold them back," Vulture reports based on the resulting video evidence. MGK, for his part, has denied anything happened at his show: "I don't know why the media lies in their narrative against me all the time but all I saw was 20,000 amazing fans at the festival singing every word and 20 angry ones," he tweeted. Okay!
