Dear Gossips,

Wait, I thought the rumour was that Carrie Underwood was performing at halftime at the Super Bowl …? Instead the Wall Street Journal reported the other day that the NFL has invited Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Coldplay …but that if they want the gig, they have to pay the league for the opportunity. The artists’ reaction? A “chilly reception”.

One of the arguments against this proposal is that it would essentially turn the halftime show into a giant commercial.  Read Full Intro

During press for Guardians of the Galaxy last month, Chris Pratt said that he’d stolen his Star-Lord costume so that he could visit sick kids in the hospital dressed as his superhero character. And guess what? HE DID. Pratt visited the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles on Wednesday, screening Guardians for the kids, and he showed up dressed as Star-Lord. Full Story

Madonna’s done with Timor Steffens. OK good because I didn’t bother memorising his name. He’s young, an arty dancer type. And they were on holiday in the south of France and she decided before her birthday that she didn’t want to be with him anymore so, according to US Weekly Full Story

A year ago, Josh Brolin was dealing with a broken marriage and a couple of embarrassing incidents caught on video – he was drunkenly fighting, one of those times was at a Del Taco drive-thru. Last November, Brolin entered rehab. This spring he was spotted with a new girlfriend on a European holiday. Full Story

So it was Gwyneth Paltrow’s turn to accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge yesterday. And this is exactly what I mean about those on the top tier participating – because it’s their return nominations that continue to make it interesting. The Zac Efrons and the Ashley Bensons of the world can keep going around in their own circles all they want. Full Story

To the outsider, they don’t seem to have much in common. The internet doesn’t seem to understand their relationship. But it’s serious, lasting a lot longer than people thought it would. How have they prevailed? Love, sure. And also…oxycontin. They’re both addicted to oxy and often spend days at home, wrapped up in each other, doing oxy, back to her old habits. Full Story

Mackenzie! Happy Birthday and Congratulations on your recent promotion too! Adrienne requested a cast photo of Into The Woods but so we’ve only seen character images and not a full cast set. I’m giving you Cinderella Anna Kendrick. Good? Happy Birthday Tracy from Kristen! 35 is pretty much the best year. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Celebrities are still getting ice-bucketed every day. And even though it’s been going on almost a week now, what’s keeping my interest is the fact that we’re still waiting on some big names. The biggest names. Like...

Finally someone nominated Angelina Jolie. It took Vin Diesel to do that. Come on. You would watch the Jolie get ice-dumped. And Brad Pitt. And George Clooney. I already wrote yesterday that I hope Matt Damon nominates George Clooney.

You know who came up with the best one though?

Gisele Bundchen. Gisele nominated Anna Wintour. It’s genius. Jamie Oliver nominated Prince Harry which… I want to see that only to have him nominate his sister-in-law right after. Because, well, what does Mrs Cambridge look like without all those curls?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

I’m not sure it was hard for her. And for any of the professional athletes doing it. Like, she nominated Roger Federer who sits in an ice bath after every tennis match. They all do. But anyway, here’s Anna Wintour accepting her ALS Ice Bucket Challenge in response to her daughter Bee, and not to Gisele Bundchen, as noted in today’s open. Full Story
