Despite recently released emails that suggest Politico allowed a Hillary Clinton aide to ghostwrite a section of its morning newsletter, the site denies any wrongdoing. Emails recently obtained by Gawker that were exchanged in 2010 between Politico reporter Mike Allen and former State Department official Philippe Reines reveal the two discussed a news item that would appear in the site’s Playbook newsletter. In the exchanges, Reines sent Allen a press alert for a National Geographic special on the State Department, and Allen followed up with a re-write for Reines’ approval.

Eva Longoria may need to expand the guest list for her upcoming wedding, because Lucifer‘s Tom Ellis and James Corden both want to attend. The topic came up last night on The Late Late Show, on which both Longoria and Ellis were guests. After Corden congratulated the Telenovela star about her recent engagement, he then asked her a pretty important question: What would she like him to sing at the wedding?

They Could Go on Singing: Smoczynska’s Debut a Fairy Tale Grim
Polish director Agnieszka Smoczynska crafts a memorable directorial debut with The Lure, a 1980s set horror musical concerning two mermaid sisters who allow themselves to be exploited as a new act in a Warsaw nightclub. The usual motifs associated with either fairy tales or coming-of-age metaphors feel muted in fantastical set pieces and impressive moments utilizing practical special effects. With incredible style and flair, it’s almost easy to forgive a somewhat meandering screenplay, which suddenly morphs into hyper drive for a rushed finale. Still, until we reach these truncated moments, it’s an often unpredictable and visually arresting series of sequences accompanied by catchy pop covers or its own insanely strange pieces.
