Ellie Kemper Shares First Photo of Son James: “He Is the Cutest Baby on the Planet”

Hashbrown: adorable!

The star of Netflix’s hit comedy series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and new mom Ellie Kemper has finally revealed a glimpse of her first child, James Miller, during a visit to Today to promote the show’s third season, out Friday.

And spoiler alert (for the baby, not Kimmy): James is the spitting image of his mama.

“You guys have the right reaction,” the 37-year-old actress told anchors Sheinelle Jones and Dylan Dreyer when they commented on how cute her 9-month-old is.

“Now that I’m a mom, when I see a photo of any baby, I know—even if I think the baby is just so-so—you have to react like, ‘That’s the cutest baby I’ve ever seen!’” Kemper added with a laugh. “Because if anyone doesn’t have that response when they see a picture of James, I’d leave.”

“He is the cutest baby on the planet,” Kemper insists jokingly as the hosts compliment her son’s hair and baseball-themed outfit.

Another standout aspect of the photo is what James is clutching: his mom’s wallet. And according to Kemper, that’s pretty par for the course, as he has no interest whatsoever in actual toys yet.

“He only wants to tear up paper,” she explains of a favorite hobby.

The Office alum and her husband Michael Koman welcomed James in August. The following month, she stepped out at the 2016 Emmy Awards—where she nabbed her first nomination, for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series—and told E! News of being a first-time mom, “It’s life-changing.”

“Everything changes immediately,” Kemper added. “So no sleep and lots of milk.”

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 is streaming on Netflix now.

Yes, Jaden Smith Carried His Own Dreadlocks at The Met Gala

Jaden Smith just carried the best accessory to the 2017 Met Gala: his own ‘do!

The 18-year-old son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith hit up the annual event on New York’s Upper East Side carrying his own dreadlocks in his right hand. Just last month, dad Will chopped off his son’s hair, sharing a series of photos post-shear. The infamous locks seemed to have survived the journey to New York, making the ultimate red carpet debut at one of fashion’s biggest nights.

Taylor Swift’s Boyfriend Joe Alwyn Just Landed This Major Role

Taylor Swift’s British beau is about to get a whole lot less mysterious.

On Tuesday, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Joe Alwyn will continue to make his Hollywood ascent with his new role in the upcoming Josie Rourke-led movie, Mary Queen of Scotts.

Starring as Queen Elizabeth’s lover and confidante, Dudley, the up-and-coming 26-year-old will get a chance to work alongside some industry heavyweights, including Margot Robbie, who plays opposite of the legendary monarch, and Irish actress Saoirse Ronan—the Queen’s cousin Mary in the film. 

Since Alwyn’s acclaimed star turn in Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, the young actor’s career has been on the rise, with a role opposite La La Land‘s Emma Stone in The Favourite, which is also reportedly in the works.

And the buzz doesn’t stop there, the previously unknown actor was recently cast into the public eye after the news of his hot new secret romance with pop darling Swift, which the two lovebirds had apparently kept under wraps for months to avoid the spotlight.

Selena Gomez Strikes Again with TWO Fiery Dresses in N.Y.C. Today

Selena Gomez strikes again, and this time she’s taking a page out of Kendall Jenner’s book by ditching the bra. The style star was spotted out in New York City on Monday morning in a fiery orange dress with a thigh-high slit that showed off her incredible legs.

The chic look also featured a plunging neckline and some strategically placed piping that elongated her frame. She paired the vibrant dress with black ankle-strap sandals (shop a similar pair here) and a wavy blowout.

And this wasn’t the only head-turning look that Gomez wore Monday a.m. The “Bad Liar” singer also stepped out in a cobalt blue wrap dress with wide sleeves and an oversize button that held the mini closed as she strutted her way down the streets of Manhattan. While her dress was different, she stuck with the same lucite-heel sandals and her signature beauty look.

Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell Releases George Michael Tribute Song—Her First Music in 12 Years

Calling all Spice Girls fans! Former Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell has new music out, and we’ve got all the details.

The singer just dropped “Angels in Chains,” which is her first global music release in 12 years. For her to release a single after so long, you know it has to be something special. In fact, it’s so special that it’s a tribute to her friend, the late singer and LGBT icon George Michael.

“You know when you’ve got one of those friends that you don’t have to see all the time but when you do, you just click back and you have the most honest relationship? I would say that’s the kind of relationship,” she told Billboard in an interview. “I wanted him to be my boyfriend, but I wasn’t his cup of tea.”

In the interview, Halliwell revealed that they weren’t only close friends, but also roommates.

“When I left the Spice Girls, I went and lived with him,” she said. “When I had my first child and I had nowhere to live, I went and lived with him for nine months. He was always a very kind person.”

Halliwell seems to be paying that kindness back. “Angels in Chains” is a collaboration between Halliwell and Michael’s former band and producer, and the profits from the song will go toward Childline, which was one of Michael’s favorite charities.

Kudos to Halliwell for continuing to contribute to Michael’s charitable legacy.

Now Is the Time for Obama to Recognize Palestine

I’d like to return today to an argument I made two years ago in The Nation, which is that President Obama should recognize Palestine before he goes out of office. For different but related reasons, Jimmy Carter made a similar plea last month.

One of the arguments often heard is that Israel cannot survive as a Jewish state if it annexes all of the West Bank, since it will ultimately acquire 4 million Palestinians (West Bank & Gaza residents) as citizens in that case.

I don’t really care whether Israel has a Jewish majority, just as I don’t care if Egypt has a Sunni Muslim one or if Germany has a German one. In the tradition of the French revolution, I think states should be civil states, for the people of the Republic, whoever they may be. The United States in 1789 was mostly British and had a population of 4 million. Now it is 8 times as big, and has large Italian, Latino, German and Irish populations, not to mention over three million Muslims. So what? All those groups have brought gifts to enrich the nation. In an age of globalization, trying artificially to maintain one ethnic group as a majority is probably a fool’s errand, anyway. (Not to mention that “ethnic groups” are fluid and change definition over time). Israel is importing Thai agricultural workers and initially was welcoming African refugees.

So what is called a “one-state” solution would be fine with me, as long as all the citizens of that one state had equal rights and it was a genuine democracy.

It just would be very difficult to get to that outcome, whereas it would be fairly easy to set up two states, since the basic framework of the two states already exists.

Moreover, it is entirely possible that the Israeli squatters on Palestinian land in the West Bank will at some point engineer a civil war, and try to expel the Palestinians, making them stateless refugees all over again.

What is wrong with the present arrangement is that the Palestinians do not have citizenship in a real state. A state controls the water, air and land of a territory. The Palestine Authority controls none of those things. A state has a judicial system that can protect the basic property and human rights of a citizen. Palestine has none of those things. Important cases are kicked to the Israeli judiciary, which with a few exceptions tends to rule in favor of Israelis. And, a lot of decisions are made for Palestinians by the Israeli army or by colonial administrators.

People who are stateless, in the phrase of Supreme Court Justice Earl Warren, do not have the right to have rights. It is unacceptable that millions of Palestinians should be kept stateless at the insistence of Israel. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has even vowed that he will not allow a Palestinian state as long as he is in power (a violation of the Oslo Peace Accords).

The reason that all these decades of negotiations have proved fruitless is that the Palestinians, as stateless, don’t really have standing to negotiate. You can renege on agreements with stateless people at will, as Netanyahu has repeatedly done, without fearing any consequences and without the stateless having recourse. So you can’t start with negotiations. You have to start by addressing Palestinians’ lack of citizenship.

It should be noted that the National Socialists in Germany stripped German Jews of their citizenship, in preparation for committing a Holocaust against them or driving them out of their homes as refugees. (Let’s see, sniffed Goebbels, if any of their liberal champions will want them then.) The Nazis understood very well that you can do with Stateless people what you will, and that no one will effectively so much as object. For the Zionist right wing, Israel comes as a solution to the problem that Jews are always in danger of losing their citizenship rights when they are citizens of other states. (This was a problem of the 1930s; it is not clear that it is perennial or universal– contrast with the US). Moreover, in a nuclear-armed world, the idea that a state can protect you from another holocaust is a false messiah; ask the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In any case, solving the artificially created problem of Jewish statelessness cannot come at the price of creating Palestinian statelessness.

One way or another, I insist on the problem of Palestinian statelessness being solved. I don’t care how it is solved. They can become Israeli citizens, or Palestinian citizens. But they have to be citizens of something. Otherwise, we will continue to see serial disasters befalling them, and the injustice being perpetrated on them will continue to generate security risks to the US.

The chair of the executive committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Saeb Erekat, said Monday that the Palestinian leadership was invigorated by the UN Security Council resolution condemning Israeli colonization of the Palestinian West Bank. As a result, it would redouble its efforts to achieve full membership in the United Nations for the State of Palestine.

Likewise, he said, the Palestinians would take their case to the International Criminal Court at the Hague, charging Israeli officials with various crimes against the international law of occupation, chief among them flooding their own citizens as colonizers into the Occupied Territory.

Erekat recognizes that the Palestinian cause will go nowhere until Palestine has some of the perquisites of a state, such as UN membership and ability to take cases to the International Criminal Court.

So here we come to President Obama. Just as he established diplomatic relations with Cuba, so he could do the same with regard to Palestine. It would be one step toward resolving the decades-old problem of Palestinian statelessness.
