Dear Gossips,

Been growing a small crush on Brian Williams for years – mostly because I love it when he’s on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. But now? After his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon this week?

It’s hard.

For the Gin and Juice, sure. And the Rapper’s Delight before that, fine. But mostly it’s the interview. He is so f-cking great in this interview. One minute Williams is invoking Foxy Brown. The next he’s dropping news anchor phrasing, and all the gravitas that comes with it. News Anchors, ah yes. We’re supposed to take them seriously. We’re ONLY supposed to take them seriously. Most of them, almost all of them, wouldn’t get loose like this for fear that we’ll never again take them seriously.

But I know he knows his sh-t. I don’t doubt that he knows his sh-t. And I certainly don’t doubt it just because he’s questioning Lester Holt’s “flow”.

Can we add a news anchor to the Freebie Five List? Is that off-side? I don’t think it is. Let me know.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

PS. THANK YOU New York for coming out last night to Barnes & Noble to support my book and my blog. Our gossip discussion was everything I hoped it would be. It was my privilege to get smutty with you. And it was an honour to spend time with so many of you, including those who’ve been visiting this blog from the very beginning. All my love and gratitude.

Dear Gossips,

I gave birth again! My book, Listen To The Squawking Chicken, was released in the United States today! Thank you so much for all your support so far. For the second week in a row, Listen To The Squawking Chicken was #3 on the bestseller list in Canada. Click here to see. Again, as I’ve mentioned a few times already, the final acknowledgement at the back of the book is for you, the gossips. You are everything. Gossip is everything.

I’ll be at Barnes & Noble (150 East 86th Street) in New York tonight at 7pm to squawk and smut. See you there? And in Chicago on Thursday at 7pm at Anderson’s Bookshop. And in LA on Friday at 7pm at Book Soup.  Read Full Intro

It’s gorgeous in New York today. I f-cking love it here. But if you didn’t know how nice it is, Taylor Swift will show you. She wore a springtime dress while out in the city. She wore a springtime headband and carried her bag like a basket. And the flowerbeds just appeared. Can you imagine life like that? Every day is a fairy tale turned into a video. Full Story

Check out these low quality shots of Charlize Theron, with her son Jackson, and Sean Penn at the baseball game the other day. They weren’t even sitting in a box. They risked being among the people. The rowdy people. The ones who’ve been in the sun all day drinking beer. That is not usually a safe environment for crusty old Sean Penn. Full Story

Cameron Diaz’s The Other Woman opens on Friday. I would see it this weekend if I wasn’t travelling. And while the reviews aren’t amazing, they’re actually a lot better than Johnny Depp’s Transcendence. So… Cam’s been giving a lot of candid interviews in support of the movie. Full Story

There’s a behind-the-scenes video of a photo shoot featuring James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender for DETAILS making its way around today. Obviously for the upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past release. Both are squinting real hard through their shots. The furrowed brow. The stern expressions. Full Story

Check out Hugh Jackman on his scooter with his dog in New York yesterday. His wife and daughter were there too. And look, they’re not freaking out and comparing being papped to being molested by a child toucher, Kristen Bell. Have you read that Rolling Stone feature on the paparazzi yet? Click here Full Story

Why Emma Stone is awesome

Duana has her Julia Roberts bias – as seen in the article below. I love Julia too. But for different reasons. She is sanctimonious and self-righteous as F-CK. And it’s so endlessly entertaining. As for my bias…right now…that would be Emma Stone. IS AWESOME. The new VOGUE feature, her second cover, sure, though, to be honest, it’s kind of a bland interview. Full Story

Game 2, the Toronto Raptors host the Brooklyn Nets tonight at the Air Canada Centre. Why am I in New York? Well, Jacek always says I jinx my teams. Maybe it’s a good thing because we lost on Saturday and that can’t happen again this evening. The Raptors official ambassador, Drake, was photographed in Toronto with friends on Sunday, likely to support his team. Full Story

Y’all, Keke Palmer is about to make history by becoming the youngest talk show host of all time on a new daily BET show. This also marks the first time I will be watching BET on the daily. Someone in programming there is doing something right, because Being Mary Jane is also eminently watchable, and now this. Full Story

William and Catherine Cambridge arrived at Ayers Rock today for a visit with members of Australia’s aboriginal community. There are some glorious images coming out of this tour. I’ve never been to Australia but looking at these pictures, I’ve never wanted to go more. Which, I think, is the point. Full Story

There’s a way to style-coordinate with your partner. We’ll see an example of that in a minute. And there’s a way to not style-coordinate with your partner. We’re seeing an example of that courtesy Johnny Depp and his fiancée. I’ll wait here until you can stop rolling your eyes. Full Story
