Dear Gossips,

Today is September 1. Do you know what that means?

There’s a train waiting for us at King’s Cross Station. Time to head back to Hogwarts. You know who’s going to Hogwarts for the first time this year?

James Sirius Black. We know this because JK Rowling reminded us of it on Twitter:

As of this writing, #BackToHogwarts is the #1 trending topic worldwide. And new students will be getting sorted tonight into their respective houses. Which is the source of most of my arguments with Duana because while I’ve always been firmly Slytherin, whenever she goes onto a sorting app, it always puts her in Hufflepuff.

At first Duana was like, pffft, I don’t trust any of these sorting things. Now she’s trying to tell me on text that Jo has been defending Hufflepuff and that Tonks was Hufflepuff. And Tonks was a f-cking badass. Are you Hufflepuff? If so, hit us back. Let’s see some of that Hufflepuff pride.

Have a great ride to Hogwarts.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

The last time I posted photos of Jennifer Aniston on the set of Mother’s Day, mentioning that Timothy Olyphant is playing her ex-husband in the movie, I got yelled at. Some of you were pissed that I didn’t include photos of him. OK but there were no photos of him that day. There are now. Full Story

After #BackToHogwarts, Idris Elba is currently the biggest trending topic on Twitter at post time. It’s because Anthony Horowitz who wrote the new Bond book, Trigger Mortis, has offered his opinion to the Daily Mail on whether or not Idris Elba would be a good James Bond: “Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better. Full Story

Masters Of Sex Season 3 Episode 8 recap Well, it wasn’t a boring episode of Masters of Sex – in fact, there were people and their relationships being explored all over the place. Sometimes I think it’s that this show tries to do too much, and so we wind up feeling unfulfilled about all of it. Full Story

Thanks to all of you who’ve been emailing your thoughts after seeing Janet Jackson in Vancouver last night. As you know, she kicked off the Unbreakable tour there and, well, so far, at least the way it’s looking in my inbox, the consensus is that she was The Best. If you’re worried about her movement… don’t be. Full Story

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

Many outlets are reporting that Jay Z joined Instagram and quit after one post. I think more social media would be good for Jay, considering that he’s trying to keep Tidal afloat. It lives on social media, so he should too. The account @hovsince96, is gone, but here is his one and only photo. Full Story

Emma Stone’s been shooting La La Land with Ryan Gosling. And there have been all kinds of rumours that she and Ryan are going to happen. If they didn’t happen the two previous times, I’m thinking it’s unlikely to happen now. Also, she’s still with Andrew Garfield, even if they don’t get papped once a week. Full Story

It’s the end of summer – what are you reading? Are you transitioning to your heavier fall reads? I’m suffering from indecision. I can’t decide what to start next. This morning, a new preview for Lenny Letter (a preview of Lena Dunham’s new email newsletter – click here Full Story

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
