Dear Gossips,

Today was Lindsay Lohan’s deadline to complete community service. There was a lot of speculation about whether or not she’d actually be able to do it. And if she couldn’t, she supposedly was going to flee the country on some rich dude’s payroll. Amazingly, she got it done, just in time. According to TMZ, Lohan has logged 125 hours and will be finally off probation. And how did this happen? Here’s how she put it on Instagram:

“Hard work pays off.” Yes. The hard work involved putting in “nearly 8 hours a day for several weeks without a break to get the job done”.

So… 8 hours a day is considered hard work now?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Has she had enough yet?

You remember when he turned up in a small, out-of-the-way-of-Hollywood town not too long ago, for no apparent reason? He was trying to go undercover. Because it turns out, he was there with a woman…a very attractive woman… who is not his wife. They were seen holding hands at the hotel. Full Story

Olivia! Happy 15th Birthday from Kim. I’m told you and I are Brandon Flowers “soul sisters”? Here are some older shots of him with shorter hair taken last September at a tribute for George Harrison. See, when I remember the short hair, I can’t decide what I like more. Scrubs in the City is happening on June 4th … and the theme this year: Tokyo! A week from today, Evergreen Brick Works will become Shibuya in support of SickKids Hospital, home to Canada’s largest, hospital-based child health research institute. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

In the heat of an obsession, there’s nothing more satisfying than when your google alert goes off in the morning. Brandon Flowers was on BBC Breakfast today. He played a show in Leeds last night, then got up at 5am to make it to the interview, and they asked him about that, about looking so fresh when he had to sleep on the bus…which, basically, was their segue into asking him about his lifestyle – being a rock star and a family man, being a rock star and a Mormon. That’s part of the fascination for me as well. How does that work? Does it work? Are we too cynical? As he says, “it’s definitely a topic that comes up a lot”. It came during his conversation on NPR too. You can listen here but if you don’t have time, here’s an excerpt:

DAVID GREENE: So you're sober. You are a devout Mormon. You're family man, three kids, yet, you know, you're pulled by the spirit of Elvis. You, yourself, have, you know, a rock and roll kind of image, you know, and that you'll show onstage. I mean, these seem to be conflicting impulses here.

BRANDON FLOWERS: They are. I mean, I'm not without temptation or anything like that, but I - you know, I also feel like I learned a lot in the early days, having that contrast of knowing what I felt, what made me feel good and then trying to fit into this role of a - you know, of the lead singer of a rock band. You know, because I've had both of those experiences, it made it easier for me to decide which road I was going to take.

I want to know more about the “temptation”. Is that cheap?

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. Thanks to those of you who’ve emailed recently asking about the SMUT Soiree. Unfortunately, due to family priorities and other commitments, I’ve not been able to plan the event this summer. We are looking at some options in the fall and will give you more details if and when that’s possible. Apologies for any inconvenience this might present. I love our gossip nights. And I really, really want to make it happen.

Where was This Hot Bitch?

As many of you pointed out in your Cannes emails…the reason why Cannes amfAR was so boring this year was because This Hot Bitch Sharon Stone wasn’t there. She’s there EVERY year. And they go bananas for her every year. That kind of adulation is addictive. I’ve seen her get off on it. Full Story

Jude Law loves a deep V. And a low scoop neck. Going through an airport, I get it. Meeting friends for brunch, sure. Here? Underneath a white-lined velvet jacket? I don’t understand this. I don’t know that anyone else but Jude thinks this looks good. If I had to guess, I would say he’s compensating. Full Story

Irina Shayk is back in London after hanging out in Cannes last week. Last night she attended the gala for Bradley Cooper’s Elephant Man. I’ve heard she’s actually been there three nights in a row to watch him perform. For actors and their partners, is that like going to watch your partner’s baseball/hockey/basketball/football games? I used to go watch Jacek’s beer league matches. Full Story

Taylor Swift is currently on tour. Some artists, when they’re touring, they stay on the bus, you hardly ever see them papped. Taylor Swift is on tour…and she’s been as visible as ever. After all, summertime for Taylor now means New York sidewalk runways. I would miss that. She’s doing us a service, OK? And now that she has a boyfriend, come on. Full Story

Tom Cruise is trying to make orange his colour in Georgia on the set of Mena today. I’m not sure if he’s also trying, unsuccessfully, to make himself Jon Hamm in the pants. Probably just a handkerchief. In other Tom news, remember what I said about how he endears himself to the crew? To the production? The cantankerous Alec Baldwin, who’s in the upcoming Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, claims to have quite enjoyed the Tom Cruise experience, telling The Hollywood Reporter Full Story

Archie Panjabi attended the San Andreas premiere in Hollywood yesterday. And instead of just walking the red carpet, she did stop for interviews. Here’s how this sh-t usually works – if the celebrity doesn’t want to answer certain questions about certain topics, the publicist will give you a warning. Full Story

Brad Pitt was in New York for a couple of days, perhaps for art. Yesterday he was seen at the Whitney Museum. And at one point he agreed to take photos with some fans. Note how he kept his hands in his pockets instead of putting his arms around them? This, for some reason, cracks me up. Anyway, Brad is now back in LA. Full Story
