Dear Gossips,

If you believe the bookies, Princess Catherine will be having a girl. And right now, they’re betting on the girl being called Alice. In second place is Elizabeth, followed by Charlotte and Victoria. I’m a gambling person so, obviously, I’m into this. Because someone’s just put $500 on Alice. Do they know someone who works in the royal kitchen and overheard a conversation? The fact that Alice has suddenly become the frontrunner is suspicious. Or maybe it’s a plant. Maybe the royals themselves had someone make the bet to throw people off the real name. But then again, what’s the point?

There are only, like, 10 options. The list isn’t very long. And it’s not like the Queen would ever allow her grandchild to be called Jasmine. Or Jaden.

Playing Duana for a minute, you know what’s old and traditional and could still be modern that they’d never consider but they should?

Juliet.

I love the name Juliet. I’ve only ever met one Juliet in my whole life. And I’m not hearing it a lot in my friends’ playground stories either. I mean Shakespeare used Juliet so it meets the “not new” test but also feels contemporary.

Princess Juliet. You dig?

No matter. It could never happen.

Yours in gossip,

Taylor on Tidal Day

As Maria noted in her Tidal post, Taylor Swift was probably THE biggest name not present and accounted for at the Tidal kickoff yesterday. I say THE biggest name because, love her or hate her, you cannot deny Taylor’s chart influence, not only with the latest album 1989 but her previous ones too. Full Story

Maria was just wondering in the previous post about the launch of Tidal about the absence of some major recording artists from the announcement, including Katy Perry. The Tidal presser happened in New York yesterday, late afternoon. Katy Perry? She was in New York too. Last night she stepped out for a Chanel party with Karl Lagerfeld. Full Story

Yesterday was the launch of a new Jay Z-backed music streaming service, Tidal. It started with a social media takeover (which I’ll get to) and then a press conference. An awkward as hell press conference; I got the sweats watching it. Why was the crowd hollering, who did they invite to this thing? Was it fans, or media? The audible dip in applause between Kanye and Deadmau5 was painful. Full Story

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and producer Naughty Boy, who’s working with Zayn Malik on some new music, got into a fight on Twitter. Louis thought Naughty Boy (do we have to call him this???) was disrespecting the band and the fans and Naughty Boy (who can take this name seriously?) was like, nah, man, you’re wrong. Full Story

For Christy the Rabbit who has come back after four years – I’m sorry about the heartbreak but you sound strong and determined and the key word for me in your message was “independent”. I’m excited about what’s ahead for you. By request, here’s Christian Bale. Full Story

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.  Read Full Intro

Mimi & Brett Ratner?

Mimi and Brett Ratner are in St Barts together. With friends. And people are now speculating that it’s on. I need you to look these shots of Ratner sandwiched between Mimi and a friend. With his arms linked through both of them. You know Mimi, right? I mean we all know Mimi. Is that how a Mimi boyfriend would behave around his precious butterfly? A Mimi boyfriend, first of all, isn’t to be shared. Full Story

Tidal – the Jay Z-backed music streaming service, launches today at 5 p.m. EST with a Carter press conference in New York. The social media takeover is in full swing, with a bright blue avatar popping up all over Instagram and Twitter. And there’s even a musical Justice League video Alicia Keys first posted (it’s spreading fast) – I counted Bey and Kanye (obviously), Chris Martin, Jason Aldean, Daft Punk, Calvin Harris, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Jack White, with Usher, Alicia, Regine Chassagne and Win Butler (I think?) on webcam. Full Story

Tom Hardy makes a mug

If you already have a Tom Hardy problem, this isn’t going to help. This will make it much, much worse. Here he is on the cover of UK Esquire. Some dudes, when they do the squinty eye thing, it doesn’t work, not at all. You don’t believe it. Like if there was actually cigarette smoke drifting across their faces, they wouldn’t hot-squint, their eyes would just water and they’d swat it away. Full Story

A controversy about this movie erupted following its premiere at SXSW when a member of the audience at the post-screening Q&A told director Etan Cohen that the movie “seemed racist as f*ck”. In response, the filmmakers said that similar criticisms of the movie are “cheap” and “lazy journalism Full Story

Empire Awards in London yesterday. Christopher Nolan was honoured. Nolan’s the father of the Dark Knights. And produces the new films, Superman and the upcoming Batman vs Superman. So this is like showing up for the company president. On a side note that I just want to throw out there right now – I received an update recently from a Henry Cavill fan. Full Story

The Royals Season 1, Episode 3 recap I do not understand why Princess Eleanor even cares about Jasper evil-butlering her by releasing the tape of their threesome. When we first met her she had a bare-assed upskirt photo on the cover of all the tabloids, last week she was openly smoking a joint at a royal function, and this week she conducts a war with her mother in the papers. Full Story
