Light Meter Assistant:
Okay. All set.

Gimme one of those
laughs again, Joss.

- (laughing)
- That's great, yeah.

Gimme some innocence now.

That's great.
Right down the barrel.

And some doe-eye looks.

(camera clicking)


Now mischievous.

Play with the camera.

Okay. Pure sex now.

(light gasp)

That's good.

- Gimme vulnerable.

And now emotional.

- (shaky breaths)

That's beautiful.

(ambient nature sounds)

But what is the image saying?

Nikki: That she's young,
beautiful, and damaged.

Sh... Eh, not damaged.
She had problems that
she overcame beautifully.

- O-Okay. Uh, the robe,
the hospital wristband.
- Mm-hmm.

I mean,
are-are we romanticizing
mental illness?


And you're
fine with that?
That's cool?

You people are
so out of touch.

- Oh, here we go.
- You people?

You college-educated
internet people.

Okay, yeah.
You're, you're criticizing me
for going to college.

Oh, will you let people
enjoy sex, drugs,
and hot girls, okay?

Stop trying
to cock-block

No, Nikki, I'm not
some sort of prude.

I just don't think that with

everything that she
has been through,

she should be
wearing a hospital wristband.

Mental illness is sexy.

- No, it's not.
- Yeah.

If, if you live
in Sioux City, Iowa,

you are never
gonna meet a girl
like Jocelyn.

She's not walking
down the street,

she didn't go
to your high school,

she doesn't work
at the bar or the diner,

and she did not marry
your best friend.

And if, on the off chance,
she did,

she is still never,
ever gonna fuck you.

Unless, she has some very,
very serious mental problems.

And that right there

is why mental illness

is sexy.

Photographer: Great.
Keep lookin', right here.

(chuckles) I...
It's a pretty
good point.

- Oh, beautiful.
- ("Criminal" by
Fiona Apple playing)

Extend yourself. Yeah.

Oh, playful.
I like it.

- I'm sorry. Um...
- Could I just get one second?

No, a-actually,
this can't wait.
Can you...

So sorry, Jocelyn.
Be right back.

Chaim: I mean,
she's doin' great,
you gotta admit.

- Gorgeous.
- I mean, not since
Brigitte Bardot.

- (Nikki chuckles)
- Huh?

A little...
Sharon Tate.

Oh, God forbid.

According to the nudity rider,

we only can show the side boob,

the under boob,
and the side flank.

I didn't ask.
She did it.

- Is there a problem?
- I'll let you handle this one.

Her areola is clearly visible.

- Yeah, it looks great.
- Be that as it may,

we can't actually do this.

- We can't do what?
- Daniel: Show her breasts.

- Yeah?
- Daniel: The nudity rider's
already been negotiated

with the label
and her people

- How are you?
- Hi... What are
we talking about?

- Your tits.
- Daniel: Your nudity rider.

- It's very strict.
- It is my body.

Yes, it is

and no one is arguing that.

If you want
to show your body,
which would be great,

we have to change
the nudity rider.

Okay, so let's
fucking change
the nudity rider.

Well, it, uh, it takes
at least 48 hours.

so I'm not allowed
to show my body?

Not in the general,
like, human rights
structure of it all.

Chaim, you need
to get off the phone.
There's an emergency.

- What, what?
- It's an emergency.
I need you over here.

You, you realize
how fucking annoying

and, uh, insane that sounds?

It's actually very progressive.

It's to make sure
she doesn't feel pressured.

I don't feel pressured.

- Fully respect that.
- This is her album cover.

It's also my boob and my house.

Fully respect body autonomy.

Juan, I gotta go. All right.
I'll talk to you later.



- What? What?
- I gotta show you somethin'.

- Here.
- What is that?

- This photo just leaked.
- Eleven minutes ago.

- Yeah, but what, what is it?
- Destiny: Chaimy, it's cum.

- What?
- Destiny: On her face.

- What?
- (slowly) Someone came

on her face
and then took a photo.

You wanna get in closer?

Ugh, uck! Oh my...

- Who did that?
- I-I don't know,
I don't know.

That was a selfie?
She took a picture...

- That was...
- Yeah, you could
tell by the angle.

I mean, it's, it's, kind of,

it's like a...

She was on her fucking knees.

- She wasn't standing.
- Leia: Yeah, well,

and she was on the ground.

Why would she do it
to herself? What?

- Uh, why would...
- Destiny: He probably
was fine as shit,

had a big-ass dick,
and she felt good.

Are you kid...
She fuckin' famous!
She can't do that.

- She can't fuckin'
take a selfie...
- I will find out who it is.

- I promise.
- Where... and when?

- Chaim:
You know who did this.
- I don't know.

- You live here.
- Chaim: You fucking know.

- Leia: I know!
- Oh, you do too. Who the fu...

Or I know who goes
into the room,

but I don't know who...

Which of them...
came on her face.

When I find who did this,
I'm gonna put a fuckin'

bullet in his head.
You understand this?

And that's gon' be on your head.

But I'm also trying
to be a good friend.

- And now...
- Destiny: You're not
a fuckin' friend.

- You work for her.
- Don't you fucking

- lie to me.
- Leia: I'm not!

- Mm-mm.
- It's only been 11 minutes.

If you gave me 10 more...

Well, how many fucking
people could it be?

- Well, just based
on the period of the...
- Destiny: Shut up,

- shut up, shut up, shut up.
- What's going on?

- Leia:
We're just ordering lunch.
- Hey.

- Destiny: How you doin'?
- Nothing. We just dealin'

with a lotta bullshit over here.

this intimacy coordinator.

Okay, okay, okay, okay.

All right.
What are we gonna do?
What are we gonna do?

- What are we gonna do here?
- Destiny: Chaim,

take Jocelyn's phone

and hide it from her.

- Gimme her phone.
- I mean...

She hasn't seen
that shit, has she?

- No.
- Make sure she doesn't.

Jocelyn is in a actually
quite vulnerable position

- for all the power
and privilege that she has.
- Xander: Oh, yeah.

Oh, yeah, she looks
super vulnerable.

- This is actually
a structural...
- Hey,

- how you doin' today?
- Great.

- Hi.
- Good.

Uh, you and me gonna talk

in private, okay?

Well, we actually are just right

in the middle of something...

Well, now you gonna be

in the middle of something else.

All right?
Come on.

Thank you so much.

Keep making the magic,

This way, come here.

The person being
photographed is saying

she wants to show her breasts.

She's saying she wants to do it.

Somebody bring that cat
home from the shelter.

More nails like a kitty.
Like a kitty cat.

(upbeat, sensual music
playing on set)

I'm here to protect

this person that you
care about with you.

Is that right?

- Yes!
- Well, I got it covered.

So, thank you
very much,

but you don't need to do that

by fucking up the entire day.

Yeah, it looks great.

You'll thank me when you're 60.


Nikki: That's great.

Little more nipple
because we got rid

of the nipple police.

If she wants
to be nude,

all we have to do
is redo the rider

and come back in 48 hours.

What am I supposed to do today?

I paid for this
whole day already.

So, what are we supposed to do?

Just flush that money
down the toilet?

It's the price of safety.

(door opens)

(toilet flushing)

Um... let's go in...
L... Come in here.

This... I don't want
everybody to hear this.

Please step in here.

- That's a bathroom.
- It's a very big bathroom.

Please, get the fuck in there.

- Daniel: What are you doing?!
- Price of fucking safety.

Hey, hey! You! Come here!
You want $5,000?

You keep this door shut
for the next three hours.

Three. Hold it.
You gotta hold it
really hard.

- Who, who's in here?
- All right?

None of your business.

Just take it or leave it, yes?

- Yeah? Okay, good.
- Yeah, yeah.

This is, like, $2,000.

I give you the rest later.

Don't let him out of there!

Oh, my God.

Okay, all right!
Thank you, Daniel!

You did a great job!
Everybody feels real safe.

(music continues louder on set)

But wait, if the music's
getting louder,

then somebody has
to have my phone.

Why would you police those tits?

- Photographer:
Great. Beautiful.
- Why?

- Uh, can I borrow
you for a minute?
- Okay.

- This way, please.
- I-I'll be back.


Google, uh, google
Jocelyn right now.

- Google Jocelyn.
- Yup.

♪ ♪

- Images?
- Yup.

- What?
- Yeah.

Easy, easy, easy, easy.

- Does she know about this?
- No, she does not know about it.

- Okay?
- What the fuck.
Who did this?

We don't know,
but we gotta
deal with it.

That brazen
little minx.

Benjamin is here.
Let's go talk.

What the hell are we gonna do

when she sees this photo
and she has a psychotic break?

Yeah, that's why we have
to keep it from her
as long as possible.

She's not going to have
a psychotic break.

No, but... Eventually,
she's gonna set it.

No one's having a psychotic...

- Let's all calm down.
- Chaim: Yeah, please.
Deep breath.

I'm gonna give
some information.

I need it to be received

peacefully, calmly.

We're the number one
trending topic on Twitter.

- Nikki: Okay. All right.
- It's not...

- No. I find out
who did this.
- ...a bad...

May God have mercy
on their fucked up,
depraved soul. Okay?

The photo could be worse.
It could be worse.

- It could be worse?
- Yeah.

- How is that fuckin' possible?
- Well, with Jocelyn,

anything is fuckin' possible.

I don't mean to be a cynic...

- Hi. Hi.
- Oh, Talia, hi!

- Nikki, hello.
- Hi, hello.
You look fantastic.

- Talia Hirsch: You look chic.
- Mm. Thank you so much.

Hey! I'm Chaim.
I'm Jocelyn's manager.

Talia Hirsch,
"Vanity Fair."

"Vanity Fair." Okay.
How you doing?

- Nice to see you.
- Nice to see you.

Wow. You...
"Vanity"... Okay.

- How are you doing?
- Oh, you know.

- (laughing)
- We've been
a little bit better.

You know what,
I think I left it
on the bathroom sink.

We'll find it.
Let's just get you
ready for rehearsal.

I left it literally right there.

That-That's so weird.

Who hasn't?
Who among us has not
had cum on their face?

- Benjamin: Okay.
- I, I think it used to be fun.

- Didn't it used to be f...
- Anyway...

Wasn't that a hot date
years ago?

- Chaim: Oh, boy.
- I'm just saying.

She's been through a lot.

What's disgusting
is the fact that

people aren't looking at her
as the victim in all of this.

Is everything okay?

Yeah, everything's fine.

Really? What were you guys
talking about out there?

Joss, the dancers
have been outside

for, like, 45 minutes
in the hot sun...

- Ah, fuck, really?
- Let's just get you changed.

- Sorry.
- Thank you.

- Go! More, more, more!
- Nikki: Her mother
died of cancer.

I mean, Jocelyn was there.

The morphine, and the thing,

and holding her mother's hand

till the last breath,
the death rattle,
the whole thing.

We don't need
to go deep on that,

but she is
prioritizing wellness,

which is, I think,
a really important thing.

Yeah, like that,
like that, like that

Black girl in the Olympics.

You know the one.

The, the, the
American hero one.

- Yeah, Simone Biles.
- Oh, yeah, yeah.

It's gotta say,
it's gotta say "revenge porn."

It's gotta say "revenge porn"
or they're not
gonna take it down.

- Holly (on phone): Okay.
- Andrew Finkelstein.

- Security Guard: Do you have ID?
- Holly: Revenge porn?

No, I'm from Live Nation.

I've been here many, many times.

- Listen, that's what...
- That's great. Do you have ID?

No, I don't fuckin' have ID!

But, ultimately,
you know, we've
pushed the tour,

we've refunded the tickets,

and that, I think,
for something...

For someone of, of that age

is a really courageous thing.

But the tickets
are back on sale.

- Benjamin: Yeah.
- Nikki: Mm-hmm.

The new single
drops in two weeks.

- It's, uh, it's incredible.
- It's lights out.

- Honestly, this song...
I love this song.
- It's good.

- It's good. It's good.
- "World Class Sinner"
it's called.

- Listen to me, it's gotta...
- There's a lotta people
here today.

- We can't let anyone
in without an ID.
- Jesus fucking...

Okay, let me deal
with this fuckin' jabroni.

Hang on.
I'm gonna Google myself.

Here, watch this. Ready?

"Andrew Finkelstein,
Live Nation."

What? Whoa! Who's that?

Huh? See that punim?

See this face? See that face?
Wow, they're similar.

Okay, okay, sir, calm down.
You don't have to be

so rude about it.
I'll get this figured out, okay?

Yeah, I don't have
to be so rude.

You know, my fucking star client
has a face full of cum.

I'm not rude.

That's fine, no problem.

Leia: Joss, Talia Hirsch
from "Vanity Fair" is here.

She's probably
just gonna ask you
some questions.

Just tell her you're late.

Do you need anything?
A water or anything?

- Talia: I could do, like, a...
- Benjamin: Oh, hello!

- Hi.
- Hi. Joss, meet Talia
from "Vanity Fair,"

- one of the great
pop culture writers.
- Hi.

- I do profiles.
- Oh, we do profiles.

- So nice to meet you.
- It's so, so lovely to meet you.

I actually
grew up watching
you on "Rock House."

Oh, my God, that is so sweet.

I'm really excited
to talk to you.

I'm just
in the middle of something,

but I'll come find you

- later, okay?
- Talia: Yeah, for sure.

I'm sure it's been a lot today.

Yeah, um, so nice to meet you.

- Yeah. See you.
- I'll see you
a little bit later.

- Is everything okay?
- Leia: Yeah. Why?

Just asking.

- Dancers: Hey!
- Jocelyn: Hi!

- Dyanne: Hi!
- Hi.

We're goin' out tonight,
you know that.

- Jocelyn: I don't know.
- Dyanne: No, don't be boring.

So, no one's told her
about the photo yet?

- Choreographer: All right,
dancers in positions!
- One sec.

- Um...
- Choreographer: Let's go!
Right there.

Super wide.
Sit in that right hip.

- (banging on door)
- Wha... Who should I ask?

I am not the bad guy here.

Finkelstein's at the gate.

Oh... let me
call you back.

I'll call you back.

What the fuck?
Are you kidding me?

Yeah, so, what you
gon' do with him?

Lock him in a closet, too?

I'm just doin' my job, man.

Remind me
to let that guy out
at some point,

- but not yet.
- All right.

Mr. Finkelstein.
So sorry for the inconvenience.

- Now you're sorry. Thank you.
- Right this way.

You're a mensch.
Wonderful fucking service.

Just send it now!

Twitter is calling her
the human cum sock!

Here we go! Seven. Eight.

One. Two. Three.
Four. Five. Sharp six!

Really hit these
pictures, dancers.

Arms up! Six. Seven. Eight.

One! Two.
And Three. And Four.

I love how referential
the choreography is.

- Nikki: It's an homage.
- Talia: To Britney.

Yeah, I mean, I think
what Britney and Jocelyn

have gone through
is really unique,

but ultimately...

Ya know?

Look at what she's overcome.

Ya know, the press
has been brutal

with Britney as well.

Like, people count them out,

and this is Jocelyn saying,
"I will not be written off."

Choreographer: Go!

More, more, more!
Come on, you're late!

Two. Three. Hey!
Come on, focus, Joss.

Andrew Finkelstein,
my second favorite Jew.

- Jesus Christ.
- How you doin'?
You all right?

I am not in the mood
for the Jewish shit today,
Chaim, not today.

I'm just saying,
if you're linking
to the photo,

you're part of,
you're part of the problem.

If you link to the photo,
you're part of the problem.

The teamwork
on this fuckin' video.

I want you to see it.
It's what you,

it's what
you dream about,
but you never get.

It's what I dream about...

Do you know what I dream about?

I dream about 40,000-seat arenas

- sold out across
the United States.
- Me too, Andrew.

Right now,
that's a fucking
pipe dream.

- 'Cause tickets aren't selling.
- Okay. All right, all right.

You know, you worry too much.

- Just relax.
- I worry too much.

My shareholders think
I worry too little.

You know,
every time I fuckin'
breathe in and out,

- I hemorrhage money
for Christ's sake.
- Yeah, that's their job. Okay?

Tell your shareholders
that everything's good.

Tickets went on sale
one week ago.

Single hasn't dropped yet.

- Relax.
- Andrew: Relax?

Have you seen this one?

How are 14-year-old girls
gonna buy tickets for this

when she's frosted
like a Pop Tart?

Chaim: Can you breathe?

Wanna get you
a coffee or water?
What do you need?

I'd like a Voss, please.

Is that
Andrew Finkelstein
from Live Nation?

Oh, yeah, yes it is.

- Oh, my God, Talia.
- Oh, my God! Xander!

Well, yeah. Of course,
you guys are friends.

- You look gorgeous, babe.
- I am... Thank you! So do you.

But you are a champion
of women. (laughs)

No, I-I'm not being sarcastic.

I'm trying to draw
the connection.

We follow each other on Twitter.

I see the links that you post.

Yeah, and then you're
linking to this photo.

(Jocelyn's single playing)

Good, come on!
This is the end!

I want it sharp!

Five. Six. Seven!

Arms up. You're late.

That should be
on seven, not on eight.

All right. That was okay.

We definitely need
to do that again.

You okay?
You seem really tired.

- Your snaps are,
like, so tired.
- I know.

You just need to commit.

Jocelyn: I just, like,
I haven't slept at all.

You know it.

I think, I think you
should take a break.

Dyanne! Take a break,
watch Dyanne do it.

Go relax and watch.

I mean, they look
like they're fuckin'
extras in "Rent."

- Choreographer: 'Kay, let's go!
- Nikki: Andy Finkelstein,

to what do we owe the pleasure?

my 15-year-old
daughter today

sent me a photo
I really wish she hadn't.

(sighs) Oh, did you come
all the way over here

to slut shame Jocelyn?

Oh, there's no shame
in being a slut,
case in point.

I'm just worried
she's having another
psychotic break.

- Nikki: No, no. No.
- But she never had
a psychotic break.

Never had one.
She was just exhausted

- and she was tired.
- Joss! Joss!

- Nikki: She's tired.
- Look. See?

- She's doin' great, okay?
- Destiny: Hey, honey!

Nikki: Look at that.
Now, does that look like

someone on the verge
of a psychotic break?

- Exactly.
- Choreographer: Joss!

Keep your eyes on Dy.

I want your eyes on her
for every little detail, okay?

Walk! Power!

Yes! Lick it!
Spank it! Drop it! Ah!

Hip, hip, hip!
Around! Amazing, Dy!

Yes! Exactly what I want.

Yes, partners!

She's a trouper.
She reminds me
of myself at that age.

Okay, the thought of you younger

is terrifying to me.

I was having fun.

I was getting fucked in the ass

of the Capitol Records
building stairwell

- and then walking
straight into meetings.
- Uh-huh.

Yeah, I remember.
I was the one
fucking you.

- Jesus Christ!
- Learn from the best.

Benjamin: I'm so sorry.

Can I just remind
everybody that we

have "Vanity Fair"
with us today?

- So, if we could just...
- Nikki: Oh, my God!

- ...keep the shit-talk to a...
- Nikki: Having her around

is like living
in communist China.

- How's it been?
- Xander: Yeah, it's been good.

Talia: You're doing
her creative, right?

- Xander: Yeah. Yeah, yeah.
- Talia: Cool.

- Yeah.
- How the hell is that?

It's good. We're all

very excited
about the song, you know?

But she's just fucking...
evolving and embracing it,
and it's inspiring.

I think we're all very proud.

Sexy! Push 'em away.

They're in the living room.

She's coming. I'll do it.

Yeah, I'll do it, relax.

I knew it.

I knew it all day.
I just had a feeling
something was going on.

What is it?

This just posted
on the internet.

(Benjamin clears throat)

This is everywhere?

- Yeah.
- Mm-hmm.

We've subpoenaed Reddit.

They're tracking down
the IP address that posted it.

So, we're, we're on it.

It's not, it's not a big deal.

I mean, I feel like it
could be a lot worse.

- Right? Right.
- Benjamin/Xander: 100%.

- 100%.
- Yeah, that's what I said.

- Benjamin: Yeah. We're on it.
- Nikki: Yeah.

- Benjamin: Don't worry.
- Nikki: Tomorrow, I wanna
wake up to, uh, like,

150 Google Alerts
telling me Jocelyn's

some kind of
feminist hero, right?

- Okay. Yeah, me too.
- You can do that.

But I'm gonna start with victim

- and m-move up
from there.
- Yeah...

- well, it's the same difference.
- I don't understand anything.

How could it possibly be
any fucking worse?

Just tell me a scandal
that was worse, recently!

She's coming out of it
more famous than
when she came in.

- And that's! That's the win.
- Let's just put it that way.

Chaim: Oh, you think the...
That's gonna be
the reaction to this?

To, uh, what do they call this?

The Bugooki?
The Banooki?
The Bonaki?

- What do they call the word?
- Bukkake.

That's gonna make her
more famous than before?

- Benjamin:
Kim Kardashian's a billionaire.
- Is... Well, it's, it's n...

I would say it's actually
not, um, bukkake because

that's kind of... that's

And this...

I-I think it's just one.

Are you gonna call

If that song came out today,
it'd be a smash tomorrow.

So, all I have to do is

The fact that

people are, like,

waiting for me to fail.

And I just don't wanna,

Yeah, but, Joss,
you always do this.

You always second-guess yourself

right before
something comes out.

You're just gonna
drive yourself crazy.

I don't want people

Yeah, I kinda like
that about him.

Joss... No. Gross.
