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.  Read Full Intro

Brad Pitt was in England yesterday at the MotoGP British Grand Prix. He narrated the documentary Hitting The Apex about motorcycle racing that comes out this week. While I think Brad is totally underrated as an actor (he lets everyone else around him be their best, which is an often overlooked talent), I’m not convinced he’s effective as a narrator. Full Story

We Are Your Friends, aka “the Zac Efron DJ movie”, is basically a remake of Saturday Night Fever with EDM substituting for disco and the San Fernando Valley for pre-hipster Brooklyn, and a vast, sucking void where its box office should have been. Full Story

You think a Hollywood feud lasts long? How about Tom Brady vs the NFL? It’s been 7 months. And today both sides are back in court to make their final arguments before the judge decides on whether or not to overturn his suspension. It’s also a second chance for an artist. You remember a couple of weeks ago when that sketch of Brady went viral because…well… see for yourself:  Full Story

According to the Daily Mail, Benedict Cumberbatch’s son has been named Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch. CCC. I have thoughts, as if you didn’t know. I don’t usually care about a monogram, but there’s something about the CCC that really seems unfinished. Full Story

What was your first reaction when you saw what Vanessa Hudgens wore to the VMAs? Mine was… “Oh f-ck off!” We know you had to miss Coachella this year because you were on Broadway. This doesn’t mean you have to spend the next 11 months dressing like an asshole. Full Story

According to Kanye West and those of us who represent Scarborough, Ontario, The Weeknd delivered the best performance last night at the VMAs. Kanye was really feeling it. The Weeknd brought out the Taylor Swift in Kanye West: This is what you're missing if you're not watching our All Access streams at the #VMAs Full Story

Here’s how Duana described Britney Spears to me on text last night: “She’s of our generation. B is an elder here tonight.” Why are we so old?! Did you know any of the people on that pre-show? Like that guy who kept performing other people’s songs the whole time? Trotsky…or something? Of course, I know he wasn’t named after a Marxist politician and the inspiration behind Snowball but that’s what I kept hearing. Full Story

Justin Timberlake didn’t bend over and start heave-sobbing after a performance at the VMAs. But his weeping did get a shout out last night – and not because Ashton Kutcher punked him while he was high. As mentioned earlier, Kanye referenced JT’s tears during his Vanguard acceptance soliloquy. Full Story

At the beginning of the night, my post on Justin Bieber was supposed to be about his hair. I love his hair. And I'm not even done offending you. While some are comparing JB's hair to Brad Pitt, or that woman who had all those kids, my first thought when I saw it was... River Phoenix.  Full Story

You know the next line. And it was. Would you rather they get up and thank their Lord and lawyer, read from a piece of paper, name all the contributors, and cry “I love you” to the fans… Or would you rather whatever it was that Kanye gave us last night? A therapy session? A sermon. Full Story

For a while it was looking like Taylor Swift had more than just Katy Perry to deal with. Nicki Minaj shut her down. Some online sh-t with Avril Lavigne got stirred up last week. And Kanye was receiving the Video Vanguard Award at the VMAs. On Saturday night in San Diego, Taylor settled amicably with Avril, bringing her onstage to sing Complicated together. Full Story

Well I guess that’s the last time we ever really believe that someone would just host an award show without having anything to promote… Did Miley Cyrus get her ass dragged by Nicki Minaj? If it was real, she looked terrified. If it was fake, she didn’t step back hard enough to make a difference. Full Story
