Dear Gossips,

Kanye West took all the words. So today I have to manage with the scraps that he left for the rest of us.

Last night I tried to remember the “VMA moment” of 2014. In 2013 it was Miley and the tongue and the finger. But last year…well… I realised that last year there wasn’t one. Last year was all about Beyonce’s Vanguard performance. Last year, no one wanted to f-ck with that, no one wanted to f-ck with her. Knowing that Beyonce wasn’t a factor this time around, it kinda felt like the lawless Wild West again. Which is exactly what the VMAs should feel like. This is what MTV has been doing so well for almost 30 years. No other show manufactures controversy so consistently – be it organic or intentional. From Howard Stern farting, to Eminem trying to throw down with Moby, to girl kisses and nipple slips, to interruptions, presidential declarations, and feuds – always the feuds – the VMAs keep giving.

What I appreciated the most, however, about what MTV gave us in 2015 is actually what they DIDN’T give us…

I Can’t Ariana Grande wasn’t there.

That’s enough to declare the event a huge success. Another indication that an award show is a success? The fashion is secondary. I was initially all ready to talk about the clothes but the clothes have now become an afterthought to the drama.

Oh and there’s a new Moon Man. They forced the old guy into retirement. I am outraged.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

It’s not like we weren’t expecting it, right? I opened the blog with it on Friday – click here for a refresher. Miley Cyrus talked sh-t about Nicki Minaj to the New York Times and, oh, 72 hours later they would meet at the VMAs and this is what happened. Full Story

Michelle! Happy Birthday from Ashley & Kendra who want you to know you’re not too old for Zayn. And they asked me to include photos of him right before he left One Direction which… um… I’m not a scholar on his hair eras… so… are these OK? And for Sarah on your birthday proper – hope it was an amazing celebration of YOU this weekend. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

MTV says that they’ll let Miley do whatever she wants on Sunday at the VMAs. And Miley says that MTV will be letting her do whatever she wants when she’s hosting the VMAs. So the question is: what does “whatever Miley wants” look like right now? Check her Instagram.  Read Full Intro

US Weekly reported recently that Sandra Bullock has a new boyfriend. Click here for a refresher. At the time, they didn’t reveal his name. But as I noted in the original post here, given how private she is, and how locked down that wedding was, it would have to be serious if she’d taken him to Jennifer Aniston’s wedding. Full Story

STAR Magazine apparently reported in their issue this week that Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender might not be together anymore because he parties too much. I only learned of this from Gossip Cop because they’ve published a counter story calling STAR out on the claim. According to Gossip Cop, who spoke to sources close to Alicia, STAR’s article is “inaccurate”. Full Story

Lucy Liu’s baby Rockwell

Lucy Liu has a new baby boy! His name is Rockwell Lloyd Liu, and while the name is not ‘outlandish’ or otherwise celebrity-esque, all the Ls at top-and-tails of all the names had me a little bit tongue-tied for a minute. Rockwell Lloyd Liu is not going to be mistaken for anyone else, and overall I think it’s a great name, but there really is a lot of ‘L’ involved. Full Story
