Dear Gossips,

We were thinking the same thing watching George Ezra perform on Saturday Night Live, right?

Why hasn’t Taylor Swift friend-collected him yet? And how long before she does? It’s inevitable, non? Although certainly not a priority on a night like last night, when she was friend-collecting all over the place at the iHeartRadio Music Awards. Still, Calvin or George? If you ask me, George is WAY cuter.

The Kids’ Choice Awards also happened this weekend. Angelina Jolie showed up. Emma Stone showed up. Chris Pratt showed up. So, basically, the Kids’ Choice Awards > the People’s Choice Awards.

For some reason there were a lot of awards this weekend which happens to be a month after the Oscars. Is a month enough time to get over awards fatigue? There is no award season anymore. It’s pretty much year round awards now. Because in two weeks it’s the MTV Movie Awards. And two weeks after that it’s the MET Gala. Which is the Fashion Oscars, really. And two weeks after it’s Cannes. Which isn’t technically an award show but they all dress like it is.

There is no true low season anymore. It keeps gossip in business.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Planning a trip to Washington, DC. Where to stay? With good restaurants etc? Need recommendations!

In February Jon Stewart announced he will be retiring from The Daily Show later this year, and now it’s become official that his replacement will be South African comedian Trevor Noah. There’s still no date for Stewart’s retirement beyond “later this year”, but when he does go, Noah will take over his chair. Full Story

Katie Holmes took Suri to the Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday night. And Suri clearly enjoyed it. Arms up in the air, trying to shove air balloons into her clutch…she’s 8 now, and this event hits all the sweet spots for someone her age. It must have been magic. By the way, Jamie Foxx was also at Kids’ Choice on Saturday. Full Story

The first trailer for Spectre, the next installment in the James Bond franchise, arrived—oddly—on Friday evening, and it’s more of what we’ve come to expect from Daniel Craig’s stint as 007. Which is to say, it’s moody and dark and everything is gray and chilly. Full Story

This didn’t end up being a surprise since Michelle tweeted about it a couple of days before the event. But still. Still. When she, Kelly Rowland, and the Beyonce reunite? It’s still a big deal. The reunion happened Saturday night at the Stellar Gospel Music Awards in Las Vegas where Michelle was nominated in several categories. Full Story

Justin Timberlake the musician? No problem. His talent as an entertainer, in that respect, has never been disputed here. So if he lives here, at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, as a living legend, yeah, of course. I mean, what a “journey”, you know? Like when you consider all that he’s had to overcome? That his career, like Janet Jackson, who was also an “innovator” in her time, could have easily been jeopardised by violating whatever bullsh-t decency rules at the Super Bowl? How often does a young, blonde man rise again after controversy? That almost never happens. Full Story

Taylor Swift tried to clarify for us that it’s not “Starbucks lovers” in Blank Space last night at the iHeartRadio Music Awards when she won for Best Lyrics but it all just ended up sounding like promotion for her upcoming tour. Right? Every time she was on stage, speaking, it was about the tour. Full Story

The Academy didn’t care for Unbroken. But Angelina Jolie would probably say that her Oscar moment of 2015 happened on Saturday night at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards where she was joined by daughters Zahara and Shiloh. The Jolie won Best Villain for her performance as Maleficent. Full Story

The Walking Dead Season 5 Episode 16 recap. SPOILERS SERIOUSLY So we finally learn what the deal is with the W-zombies, and it is, in fact, a human hunting operation. The “wolves” are a couple of guys—so far as we know—who have baited and rigged traps to catch and turn people. Full Story

I can’t say it enough, how proud I am of my friend Dan Levy who created Schitt’s Creek. And wrote it. And stars. And is the showrunner. PS. Dan is only 31. I hate him! While I obsessively watch him, week after week, because I need everything he wears in every f-cking episode. Next time you hear someone say “black is boring”? Introduce them to the way Dan styles a character. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Bitch Better Have My Money.

That’s all I’ve been listening to in the car. At my desk. I haven’t taken Rihanna to the gym yet but I can’t wait to break the treadmill with this song on repeat. It’s that kind of song. Makes me want to screw up my face, get up in someone else’s face, pick a fight. Go to Indiana and ask that old Pence guy …

WHAT THE F-CK ARE YOU SO AFRAID OF?

Maybe we should send Rihanna there. Get her to tell him that his “wife in the backseat of my brand new foreign car”.

Because #BBHMM is an equality anthem. The next time there’s a Hollywood emails leak and female actors aren’t paid as much as their male counterparts?

Bitch Better Have My Money.

When they whitewash a movie and cast Blake Lively in the lead role?

Bitch Better Have My Money.  Read Full Intro

I have a superpower!
