Ariana Grande thinks she’s an extremely sexual badass

Ariana Grande may be cornier than Gary Busey’s big toe, but she thinks she’s hot shit and basically a sexual powerhouse. You see, she may have started as a Nickelodeon star, but she’s actually far different from her kiddy character and is actually super mature and sultry or something.

From Marie Claire:
On early ambitions: “I was 14 years old and ready to make an R&B album. I was like, ‘Where is that Mary J. Blige collab? Where is that Natasha Bedingfield writing session? Where is my session with India.Arie? I’m ready. Let’s go.’ I wrote this song called ‘Higher,’ and the lyrics were too sexual, too mature. And my mom was like, ‘This is a great song, but damn, you’re too young for this.’”
On hiding behind her Nickelodeon character: “People liked her and they accepted her and they thought that I was like her. So I used to pretend to be a little more like her than I actually was.”
On her first single, “Put Your Hearts Up,” tanking: “I was like, ‘Guys, there has to be a really distinct difference between me and my character.’ And we did that with ‘The Way.’ I dyed my hair back to brown. I made out with a rapper in the video. I made the point I wanted to make. And I was excited to do so after so many years of pretending to be somebody else in front of a lot of people.” 

Oh God, this girl. I love that making out with rappers is supposed to be proof that Ariana Grande is edgy and a total bad girl. Also, sorry, I’m not buying the R&B bullshit, either. You may have loved What’s the 411?, but who didn’t? That shit does not make you legit. Oh, and one more thing: was your mother not concerned that her teenage daughter was writing sexually explicit music? Or is she a “cool mom” a la Amy Poehler in Mean Girls?
In case you’re not yet sick of Ariana’s left side, here’s another photo from the shoot (SERIOUSLY WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE RIGHT SIDE OF HER FACE????):

Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling revealed – or rather people found out – that they were having a baby only a few short months ago, and now it seems like they’re already parents to an adorable baby girl.

Hey girl, indeed! Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling welcomed a baby girl on Friday, Sept. 12, multiple sources confirm exclusively to Us Weekly.

Yes, that is exactly the total of information we’ve got. I’m sure more info will be forthcoming, but for now, you’ll have to live on the image of Ryan Gosling cradling a tiny infant to his beautiful chest and be done with it.

Matt Damon is coming back for another Jason Bourne movie

Are you into the Jason Bourne movies? I don’t even think I’ve watched The Bourne Supremacy (or any of the others) in its entirety, so I think it’s safe to say I’m not all that bothered by the series, but lots of people are, and they love Matt Damon, too. If you fall into that latter bracket, you’ll be glad to know that he’s actually coming back for yet another Bourne movie – it’s official!

From Uproxx:

I’m told that the studio is so bullish on this that the intention is to make the re-team the next Bourne film to go into production to make the July 16, 2016 release slot that Universal had previously assigned to an untitled Bourne film. That would mean it would step in front of the spinoff sequel that is to reprise Jeremy Renner and be directed by Fast & Furious architect Justin Lin. That film, which began with the Tony Gilroy-directed The Bourne Legacy, remains in development.

Universal intends to continue that series and to broaden its franchise base, much the way that Marvel cranks out superhero films.

So if this report is accurate, it means that we’ll actually have two Bourne franchises running at the same time, with Damon coming back in two years and Renner returning for his far-less-exciting adventure after that. Some might think that a good idea would be to inject some energy into the follow-up to the sorely lackluster The Bourne Legacy (I disagree with Fleming’s assessment, as it was an honorable mention for my Worst Movies of 2012), but Universal’s studio execs don’t get to shout, “CHA-CHING!” two times if they team Damon and Renner up for just one movie.

Good news for Bourne fans?
