Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are expecting their 1st child

Baby, it's cold outside — but that didn't get in the way of Rihanna's outdoor pregnancy reveal. Rihanna and A$AP Rocky are expecting their first child together, and they confirmed the news via what People described as a "snowy walk outdoors" in New York City over the weekend. The two were photographed on a walk in Harlem, with Rihanna's jacket partially unbuttoned to show her baby bump, despite NYC's winter storm. "They weren't out long, as it seemed pretty chilly out there, before heading back to their apartment," TMZ wrote. Rihanna and A$AP Rocky have been together since 2020, and she told British Vogue in 2020 she wanted to have "three or four" kids. Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky told GQ last year he hoped to become a father "if that's in my destiny," adding, "I think I'd be an incredible, remarkably, overall amazing dad. I would have a very fly child. Very."

Nick Cannon is expecting his 8th child

There's a lot of baby news to go around today, including from one of the usual suspects in that department. Nick Cannon has announced he's expecting his eighth child, confirming the news on his talk show after a gender reveal party over the weekend. The "next mother," as Cannon put it, is model Bre Ties, and the baby boy will be her first child. Cannon, meanwhile, has 10-year-old twins with his ex-wife Mariah Carey, a 4-year-old and a 1-year-old with Brittany Bell, and 7-month-old twins with Abby De La Rosa. He and Alyssa Scott also had a son, Zen, who died from cancer in December. "As everybody knows, I have a lot of children," Cannon said. "I love them all dearly, sincerely." Last year, Cannon confirmed he was "having these kids on purpose," assuring fans, "Trust me there's a lot of people that I could've gotten pregnant that I didn't."

Thandiwe Newton blasts 'jibbering fool' Sean Penn: 'You used to be sexy'

Thandiwe Newton isn't having Sean Penn's latest nonsense. The Westworld star took to Twitter to call out Sean Penn after the Licorice Pizza actor complained in an interview that men have become too feminized and that "cowardly genes" lead to them wearing skirts. "Dude what are you SAY-ING??" Newton tweeted in response. "Like for REAL? You're a jibbering FOOL. MF you used to be sexy but now you're just tragic." Noting that Penn made his comments in an interview where his daughter was present, Newton also asked, "In front of your DAUGHTER!? That poor little mite." Besides, Penn may have committed the greatest sin of all, Newton suggested: making it slightly more difficult to enjoy the new Paul Thomas Anderson movie. "Please stop ruining the brilliance of #LicoricePizza with this nonsense," Newton begged.

Rachel Zegler addresses 'Snow White' casting backlash

Rachel Zegler and Andrew Garfield are teaming up to "educate" her Snow White haters. The West Side Story and tick, tick…Boom! stars were the latest to be paired for Variety's Actors on Actors series, and their conversation touched on the backlash Zegler received after being cast as Snow White in Disney's live-action remake. "You don't normally see Snow Whites that are of Latin descent," Zegler said, recalling how many "people were angry." Garfield described those people who spent days whining as the ones "we need to educate, the people that we need to love into awareness," to which Zegler replied, "Love them in the right direction, exactly." She added, "At the end of the day, I have a job to do that I'm really excited to do. I get to be a Latina princess." Garfield was personally thrilled by the "perfect" casting, concluding, "You are Snow White. You are canon Snow White at this point in my imagination."

Leatherface is warned he'll be 'canceled' in 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' trailer

Perhaps the real way to prevent slasher villains from returning over and over is to dig into their old tweets. Netflix dropped the trailer for its new Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel on Monday, which according to filmmaker Fede Álvarez will see Leatherface take on "millennial hipsters." The footage ends with an insane moment that's either hilarious or deeply cringeworthy: Leatherface, a clearly deranged man, is seen standing in front of a group of people on a bus who proceed to pick up their phones and start filming him, with one guy warning, "Try anything and you're canceled, bro!" Naturally, Leatherface immediately murders him. Finally, a film willing to take down entitled millennials for trying to cancel anyone just because they massacred dozens of people with a chainsaw! We look forward to the new Nightmare on Elm Street where Freddy Krueger is forced to step down from hosting the Oscars and complains about being censored on Joe Rogan's podcast.
