Did I Tell You About... (12/3/20)

All the pop culture you need in your life this week.

Happy December! Normally, I’d be spending this month heading to the theaters to see all the movies up for awards, but this year? Not so much. It’s disappointing not to be able to enjoy Moira Rose’s favorite season like usual, but at least there’s still plenty of high-quality entertainment available for at-home consumption. Need a few recs for the weekend? I’ve got you covered in this week’s installment of Did I Tell You About…

I’m watching: The new Euphoria special episodes, the first of which is available for HBO Max subscribers to watch tonight at 9 p.m. (if you don’t have the service, you can watch it on Sunday instead). “Part 1: Rue” will apparently show Rue (played by Emmy-winner Zendaya, lest you forgot) celebrating Christmas, and I am both excited and scared to see what the very messy teenager gets up to this holiday season.

I’m reading: Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi. This novel comes from the author of Homegoing, one of my favorite books of 2016, and it’s just as compelling. It follows a Ghanian-American scientist dealing with her mother’s depression and her own complicated heritage, and so far, it’s a gorgeous, thought-provoking read.

I’m obsessed with: This amazing video posted by the Kardashian-Jenners featuring the whole fam FaceTiming some famous friends (Justin Bieber, Travis Scott, Hailey Baldwin, etc.) and enjoying the surprised/terrified reactions each person has upon seeing all six ladies together on the other end. Can you imagine picking up a casual call and instead being greeted by a very serious-looking Kris, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, and Kylie?! It’s a perfect prank, and I’ve watched it a million times already.

I’m loving: This Billboard profile of Dua Lipa, who just got nominated for six Grammys. Dua’s one of those artists who feels kind of unknowable, because she’s curated an image that’s very ~pop star~ first, person second. But as the profile gets into, that’s not a bad thing! She’s crazy talented and super aware of what her success means, and it’s great to see her get so much recognition for her fantastic album Future Nostalgia.

I’m still thinking about: “The Fourth Year,” aka the newest edition of Billie Eilish’s annual Vanity Fair interview. This series is the best, as it has Billie answering the same questions year after year, while reflecting on (or making fun of) her younger self’s answers. I wrote about what makes these interviews so special for Shondaland—read that before or after you watch the new one! :)

Happy watching/reading/listening, folks! See you next week for more.
