Has it been pouring rain where you live? It feels like the sunshine won’t ever come back with these “April showers.” We’re hoping the saying comes true and “May flowers” will flourish, but in the meantime, there’s no shortage of news springing up out of Hollywood. Have you been keeping up?
Beyoncé’s Coachella Documentary
Remember when we collectively lost our minds when Beyoncé’s stormed the stage at Coachella last year? Apparently, we get to relive that magic, but this time, we’ll be going behind the scenes! That’s right, friends. It’s time to get in formation!
Netflix has released the official trailer for Homecoming, and we are here for this! The online stream service describes it as “an in-depth look at Beyoncé’s celebrated 2018 Coachella performance from creative concept to cultural movement.”
The clip shows Bey preparing for the event and even includes scenes with her three children. Considering how private she is, there’s no doubt that curious viewers will be streaming this! Homecoming will be released on April 17, 2019.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s New Home
We’ve grown used to having ready access to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, but their days at the more visible Kensington Palace are over. The couple, who are expecting their first child any day now, has moved to Frogmore Cottage on the grounds Windsor Castle.
Considering how much negative press Meghan has faced, being 25 minutes outside of London sounds like a great idea. They’ve been married less than a year and are about to become parents—that’s stressful enough without having to live in a fishbowl!
The Duchess of Sussex might be moving a little off the beaten path, but that won’t stop her close friends from finding her. Serena Williams hinted that she’d already sent a shipment of Pampers over to the growing royal family. How sweet!
Jenna Bush Hager’s Role on Today
Since joining the Today show team in 2009, Jenna Bush Hager has endeared herself to viewers. Whether it’s sharing an unflattering picture while trying CoolSculpting or bringing her kids along to a live taping (only to watch them hilariously derail the segment), she’s let viewers see her true personality.
Which, of course, included a moment when she was criticized for referring to Hidden Figures as Hidden Fences. She apologized, pointing out that she’d seen and interviewed the casts from both films and that she simply had a human moment and asked everyone to move on—and we have.
Now, with Kathie Lee Gifford retiring, Hager has been tapped to replace her and everyone seems very excited, including famous guests like Reese Witherspoon. It’s always great to see someone’s career grow and now, after first greeting the world as the daughter of former President George W. Bush, she’s earned her own spotlight. It must feel amazing!
