Between Cannes and Brange and Beyonce and Robsten and the Afflecks and the Billboard Music Awards, it was a relentless weekend. Here’s how I see it -- on that list, Billboard is the lowest priority, right? Check LifeStyle through the day for red carpet photos and we’ll keep the main gossip page dedicated to the headliners.
As for Justin Bieber getting booed last night -- fine, the kid is a punk, and while it may have been satisfying for some to see his bottom lip trembling, does the enjoyment hold up when you consider that Chris Brown wasn’t booed AT ALL and in fact received rapturous applause instead, particularly from women?
I’ve never wanted to but here’s more reason why it would suck to be up so close at this kind of award show:
Miguel, by the way, apologised to the girl afterwards and did an interview with her. Not sure if it’ll be enough to avoid a lawsuit. Needless to say, Miguel’s sh-tty long jump resulted immediately in a few hilarious memes. So far, this one is my favourite.

There was a time when I’d look forward to being alone -- on the subway, in my car, right before bed -- so that I could daydream about Keanu Reeves without interruption. There were several scripts I would revise over and over again in my head. I think the one I settled on eventually involved us meeting in Asia somewhere -- because of our shared Asian heritage, obviously -- and him falling in love with me because of my awesome Chinese talking skills.

Page Six was first last week with a report on Beyonce’s second pregnancy. E! ended the week with their own exclusive, citing multiple sources who’d supposedly confirmed that she is indeed expecting again. Beyonce’s response? Very uncharacteristic. She posted an angry note on Instagram that read as follows: "I can't stop the rumors from starting, and I can't really change peoples minds who believe them, all I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me.

I don’t have to tell you how rare these are. And they were exclusive and expensive. Which is why I’m working them off on a long weekend in Canada. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin were photographed together in London the other day. Smiling. And not running away. Well, not initially. Full Story

There were two moments worth watching last night at the Billboard Music Awards: Chris Brown singing BADLY off-key, and all the drama that went down between Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Justin Bieber. More on this in a minute. First, let’s discuss fashion. HATE the white Atelier Versace on Gomez. Full Story
Game Of Thrones Season 3 Episode 8 recap You know you’ve really gotten into a show when you start to be endlessly frustrated with the characters who just won’t behave the way you need them to. This week had any number of irritants as well as the allegedly “proper” behavior of Joffrey acting like the king dick he is, so I got more than my fair share of screaming at the screen. Full Story
You know who Jennifer Garner is? Jennifer Garner is Tracy Flick, with a lot more game, and she’s happy to play it in the background. Come on. Garner has delivered in the last 6 months like no one else, non? And to all her constituents. From Oscar voters to the MiniVan Majority, in mom jeans and baseball caps, at the school track meet and on the awards circuit, Jennifer Garner is the one who’s winning. Full Story

Oh! I mean I was hoping for a few shots together on the red carpet, and maybe some handholding, but this is a MEGA bonus! Check out Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet, director, at the Blood Ties photo call in Cannes today. As you can see, their relationship is right. More than right. And the French press must have been going mad with it. Full Story
Jan & Jillian -- Happy 35th Birthday yesterday... from Baxter! Look at big Baxter at bed time! I can’t believe that’s the same dog. He has the best goofy face. Hope it was indeed a victorious long weekend. Long weekend birthdays are the best, non? Please tell me you exploited this. Full Story
There was an 80s marathon on tv the other night: The Breakfast Club, St Elmo’s Fire, and About Last Night. Obviously it’s all I could do: stare at Rob Lowe and revisit my 12 year old self crushing with the same intensity and longing. If 1985 Rob Lowe happened now, it would be OVER. And they just don’t do movie sex anymore like they used to. It just doesn’t get as horny as it used to. Yes. I am the perv who replayed his love scenes with Demi Moore at least 3 times. And it’s still saved on my DVR for weekend repeats.
Here’s Lowe on Extra yesterday. Look at him. HOW is this possible? It’s been 30 years!!!!
Ummm... Lindsay Lohan couldn’t have broken out of rehab to go party in Cannes, could she? A million dollars worth of Chopard jewels was stolen from a hotel room yesterday. Read Full Intro
