I’ll Give You The Sun.
A new book by Jandy Nelson, available today and, with 3 months to go, quite possibly my favourite book of 2014. I’m telling you right now, clear your weekend because as soon as you start, you won’t want to do anything else. And then give yourself a few hours and read it all over again.
This is a story you want to rip through, because you care so much about Noah and Jude, you want to know what happens. At the same time, you’ll have to keep reminding yourself to sloowwwwww down. Because Nelson’s voice is so fresh and so full of …well, of everything…you won’t want to miss a single detail. And that’s what’s exciting. There are paragraphs in this book that are so f-cking good, so well-written and imaginative, the reading experience becomes a thrill-ride, when all you’re really doing is lying in bed with a book.

Hollywood is suddenly obsessed with Hank Williams. It probably has a lot to do with the prolonged fight over the Hank Senior song catalog ending in 2011, or that the Hank Williams Estate, thus resolved, signed a huge licensing deal just last year. At any rate, first there was Tom Hiddleston Full Story
US Weekly reports exclusively that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling's baby girl arrived on Friday, September 12. No name has been announced. Which is not surprising. They've never actually confirmed they were expecting in the first place. In fact, when news first broke that she was pregnant, people were still saying (hoping?) that they were no longer together.

There was a story yesterday in the NY Daily News about Jennifer Lopez. Apparently last week, when she was shooting a new music video with Fat Joe, she was supposed to show up at 9am and ended up arriving 5 hours late. And this is surprising? When did that happen? When were we asked to stop remembering that JLO is all about the white candles and the white leather demands too, just as much as Mimi? She's just better at hiding it. Full Story
This fall, the front side has been all backside. And we just happened to team up with Cottonelle at the height of bum time (even VOGUE is declaring it the “Era of the Booty”!) to highlight and nominate the best celebrity butts in Hollywood, because they’re all about celebrating and pampering the Behind.

JayZ changed the lyrics to a song in Paris the other night about being pregnant with a second one, or something, and the Carter narrative quickly changed from divorce to baby. Then Life+Times tweeted this photo yesterday of Beyonce and Jay after On The Run showing Beyonce with a champagne glass which means… #OnTheRunTour Full Story
In the previous article, about casting the female lead in the second season of True Detective, given the list of actresses being auditioned, they seem to be looking for someone in her 30s who can go dark. This is why I don’t understand why Mrs Timberlake is on the list. Rosario Dawson? 100%. Full Story

True Detective Season 2. They’re still looking for the female lead. I thought Elisabeth Moss had this locked up but then there were reports last week that Rachel McAdams was being considered and last night The Wrap reported that there are actually 7 other actresses who’ve been added to the list and going in for auditions in the next few days.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association confirmed yesterday that George Clooney will be the 2015 recipient of the Cecil B DeMille Award. You think they’re giving it to him on the just the work…and not because they want him to show up at their party? Come on. It’s the HFPA. Full Story
LK! Happy Birthday with so much love from your main girl Ginger who hopes your 34th is full of warm chocolate chip cookies, a French bulldog puppy, and DVR. By request, here are Eminem, Aaron Paul, and vintage Matthew McConaughey. Nashville is definitely on my list for the next year. And when that happens, you two better be leaving your kids at home and coming out for several drinks! In January 2010, Lorna and John Levac, then newlyweds, were expecting their first baby.

The Ginger Prince is 30 years old today. Hot Harry spent his birthday weekend at the Invictus Games cheering on wounded servicemen and women. So when’s the rager?
They’re saying he put off his big party because Princess Catherine’s not feeling well. I don’t know if I believe that. For one, the Invictus Games were always on the schedule. And, well, how much of a rager would it really be with Kate around?
Of course there’s a lot of love in the family. But if I’m Harry and I’m ready to light it up on my milestone, I wouldn’t be leaving it in the hands of those dull Cambridges.
Yours in gossip,
Man, to borrow from Mimi, that is bleak. I do love fried food though. Here it is – a full length trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1. War. Betrayal. Peeta the puppet. Katniss, as always, is torn. Is there a place for morality between obligation and responsibility? Will Chris Martin be on the soundtrack? Sorry. Full Story
