Taylor Swift turns 'thirtay'

Hey, I don't know about you, but I'm feeling ... the oppressing crush of mortality. Taylor Swift celebrated her 30th birthday on Friday, despite being 19, like, yesterday. "WHO'S GONNA TELL HER SHE'S THIRTAY NOW," Swift tweeted, sharing a throwback photo of the sweet little girl who would one day grow up to have complete strangers creepily speculate about her fertility on social media. Swift didn't note how she plans to celebrate, but seeing as she accepted Billboard's first-ever Woman of the Decade Award last night, she understandably might be sleeping in. [Twitter]

The Kardashian West clan keep their holiday card casual, cozy, and adorable

Christmas came early this year! While fans of the Kardashian West clan had to wait until Christmas Eve in 2018 to see the family's holiday card (the nerve!), Kim and Kanye shared their annual photo on social media Friday afternoon. Unlike the crazy photo shoots of yore, the family opted this year for a more dressed-down look: Mom, dad, and all four kids — including adorable 7-month-old Psalm, making his Christmas card debut — wore comfy-looking sweats. "I think this Christmas card will be just ... me, Kanye, and the kids, because it's a lot to wrangle everybody," Kardashian West had told E! News last month, adding that she planned something "really chill and cozy." Nailed it. [Instagram, E! News]

Studios go all in on music documentaries

We hope you like music documentaries, because that's apparently the only kind of movie they're going to be making in the 2020s. A week after Apple TV+ snagged a Billie Eilish film for a reported $26 million, Amazon nabbed the rights to a Rihanna doc for $25 million. Meanwhile, Peter Jackson is apparently shopping a Beatles documentary that's supposed to go for even more. "It's a land grab right now," one insider told The Hollywood Reporter. "Every producer is trying to figure out what artist is next for a doc that will spark an eight-figure sale." What, and with Lana Del Rey right there. [The Hollywood Reporter, Vulture]

Timothée Chalamet is apparently taking style cues from Zendaya

Timothée Chalamet showed up for the premiere of Little Women in Paris in a magenta suit that looked almost identical to one previously worn by Zendaya — and we aren't mad about it. The actor paired his eye-catching Stella McCartney outfit with, of all things, an Eiffel Tower keychain, which would have looked ridiculous on anyone who wasn't, you know, Timothée Chalamet. The entire ensemble seemed inspired by Zendaya, who wore a suspiciously similar look by Christian Siriano in 2016. While it might be a coincidence, here's to hoping the future co-stars lean into their twinning on the Dune red carpet this time next year. [Popsugar, GQ]

A question about Baby Yoda's diapers is tearing Star Wars fans apart

Today in "questions you never thought to ask," Star Wars fans are demanding to know: Does Baby Yoda ... wear a diaper? While ideally there'd be larger thoughts occupying our brainpower at the end of the decade, things started getting hazy earlier this week when someone noticed signage at Disneyland suggesting Huggies exist in a galaxy far, far away. Seeing as The Mandalorian was the first Star Wars project to address the mystery of galactic bathrooms, some have even wondered if creator Jon Favreau might weigh in on the, uh, urgent Baby Yoda conundrum. Then again, as Showbiz CheatSheet sagely points out: "Within the bigger picture, it doesn't really matter if he poops or not." [Inside the Magic, Showbiz Cheatsheet]
