You know what looks fucking terrible? Being a famous celebrity. For those that have seen Amy, the great yet incredibly sobering documentary about the late Amy Winehouse, you’ll know what I mean. Being a celebrity, especially one in the entertainment business, looks terrifying. You’re constantly being pulled in a million different directions and you never seem to have a personal moment to breathe. Inviting a documentary crew from Netflix to follow you around 24/7 isn’t necessarily going to help that, but it does give fans a peek inside celebrities everyday lives. Gaga: Five Foot Two, if you couldn’t tell by the title, follows around Lady Gaga last year leading up to her Super Bowl halftime show. I’m a Gaga supporter (if you don’t like Million Reasons KINDLY LEAVE) so I’m hoping this is similar to the Amy documentary minus the tragic ending. Gaga: Five Foot Two starts streaming September 22nd.

Margot Robbie’s season premiere couldn’t have gone any better, both from a performance and ratings standpoint. With Broadway star Lin Manuel-Miranda ready to host tomorrow night’s show, SNL decided to leak out the final two hosts of October, and boy are they wonderful. Next week we’ll see Emily Blunt and Bruno Mars, which is a killer combination. Emily Blunt will most likely fall into the Margot Robbie category: a very talented actress who doesn’t mind being silly, which usually makes for the best kind of hosts. Bruno Mars is a former host in his own right, so hopefully he steps into a sketch or two as well. Following that is Tom Hanks and Lady Gaga. Tom Hanks is his own category completely, and I can’t think of enough complimentary words to type to describe how great he’s going to be. This is his first hosting stint since 2006 (his 9th overall), so he’s got 10 years worth of charm to bestow upon us. Gaga, like Bruno Mars, has hosted the show before, but October 22nd belongs to Tom Hanks. Don’t you dare think otherwise.
