It's officially the one month count down to Selena Gomez's big debut as an executive producer...and we've got the first trailer, exclusively for you here!
The show, 13 Reasons Why, is a teen drama that looks at what happens after a young woman commits suicide, and her crush is left with 13 cassette tapes on which she has recorded her "reasons why". It's based on a YA book by Jay Asher, and at one point, Selena was apparently rumoured to be starring in a screen version of it herself.
Fast forward to the now, however, she's part of the behind-the-scenes team on the series, premiering March 31. Gomez has previously spoken about why this project—and its admittedly heavy subject matter—mean so much to her:
"“I was going through a really difficult time when they started production. I went away for 90 days and talked with a lot of kids. It definitely hit home...I want [kids] to understand I definitely relate to everything. I was a mess."
Check out the trailer (featuring series stars Katherine Langford and Dylan Minnette) below:
It only took three years, but finally we're getting some intel on how actor / mere mortal George Clooney met human rights lawyer / bridal pantsuit wearer Amal Alamuddin.
Since the announcement of their impending twins (congrats again guys!) the informational floodgates on the couple have opened, which is why we're getting this gem of a "meet cute" story straight from the lips of George himself.
As told to David Letterman, the two met when Amal visited Lake Como as a friend of a friend. George "called and wrote" for months before Amal would go out with him, which you know, seems about right.

Judges noted Phyllis’ natural ease in front of the camera; she required minimal direction and offered up endless angles and poses. The bilingual blogger will soon have another opportunity to sparkle under the flash of the camera: As part of the prize, she’ll head to Los Angeles for an exclusive photo shoot with Smashbox.
The products we're lusting after for spring 2017.
This new take on Miu Miu’s debut fragrance keeps lily of the valley and the patchouli-like Akigalawood as top and base notes while adding a white floral heart for a scent meant to evoke the first day of spring. Miu Miu L’Eau Bleue Eau de Parfum Spray ($105 for 50 mL), at sephora.com.
When Target left Canada, so did beloved brand Pixi. Now it’s back (hurrah!), and for the first time, skincare is available in addition to cosmetics. Our pick: this just-launched physical (sugar cane) and chemical (lactic acid) exfoliant. Pixi Beauty Peel & Polish ($34), at shoppersdrugmart.ca.
Organic mongongo oil, high in moisturizing fatty acids and derived from the South African manketti tree, is the star in this blend of fast-absorbing oils. Apply strategically (on wind-chapped cheeks, for instance) as the weather changes from cold to, well, slightly less cold. Physicians Formula Organic Wear Bright Booster Oil Elixir ($20), at shoppersdrugmart.ca.
If you’ve maxed out on Millennial-coloured products (you know the shade), may we suggest this powdery hue as an alternative? OPI Infinite Shine in Suzi Without a Paddle ($16.95), at chatters.ca.
Two satin (peachy beige and gold) and two matte (caramel beige and pinky red) shades comprise Chanel makeup artist Lucia Pica’s face palette for spring. Chanel Coco Code Blush Harmony ($70), at chanel.com.
This hue is our favourite of the 10 shades of seriously-long-wearing liquid lipstick and gloss. CoverGirl Outlast All-Day Colour + Gloss in Coral Crave ($12), at walmart.ca.
Holding a can of dry shampoo close to your scalp and spraying will not do you any favours. Batiste applicators are designed to disperse product evenly from 30 centimetres (think half an arm’s length) away, and particles are sized to penetrate the hair shaft, nixing oil right from the roots. Batiste Dry Shampoo in Cherry ($9) at walmart.ca.
The latest foundation from Giorgio Armani marries the technology of the brand’s oil-based Maestro Fusion with the long-wearing pigments in its liquid eyeshadows for a high-coverage formula that feels like a serum. Giorgio Armani Power Fabric Foundation in 3.5 ($70), at sephora.com.
