VOGUE, WE’RE GONNA LET YOU FINISH, BUT WE CAN THINK OF AN EMMA WATSON COVER SHOOT WE LIKED BETTER…

 

 

Happy Monday! Here’s our compendium of pop-culture news you may have missed while you were doing more important things over the weekend.

 

• At last night’s Tony Awards, The Book of Mormon beasted the competition, winning nine awards including Best Musical. Other notable winners included Frances McDormand (Best Lead Actress in a Play), War Horse (Best Play), The Normal Heart (Best Revival of a Play), and Anything Goes (Best Revival of a Musical). Neil Patrick Harris hosted, and was appropriately suited up. [Tony Awards]

• Pippa Middleton, sister of Duchess Catherine and owner of the posterior that launched a thousand blog posts (and at least one Facebook group), has reportedly broken up with her boyfriend Alex Loudon. [Daily Mail]

• In a relatively uneventful weekend box office, Super 8 opened on top with $37M; X-Men: First Class followed with $25M; and The Hangover Part II, Kung Fu Panda 2, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides finished out the top 5 with $18.5M, $16.6M, and $10.8M. [BOM]

• Lily Allen got married (and looked lovely!) and is also pregnant. Everyone’s at it! [People]

• Emma Watson’s Vogue cover leaked, and she is looking very pretty and grown-up—so why did someone write “piece of shit” in Sharpie on the cover? Was it the leaker? So many questions! Anyway, Vogue posted the story after the photo was leaked. [The Cut, Vogue]

• Williamsburg, Brooklyn is getting another flea market; we can’t wait to hear what Brian Williams has to say about this. [Racked]
