Coming soon to television: Keanu Reeves.
As reported by Deadline yesterday, he’ll be starring in and producing a series called Rain based on Barry Eisler’s books. John Rain is an assassin whose murders are set up to look like natural cause. He’s an international man of mystery and a lonely loner. Oh, but aren’t they all?
Professionally, this is the right move. Keanu seems to know about playing his position. And, happily, he’s playing it without having to resort to joining The Expendables. You know, I still can’t breathe when Speed is on TV and I’m watching him stare intently forward out of the front window of the bus. Read Full Intro

OK, my new crush. Did you read Gayle Forman’s If I Stay? You have time to do it this week before the movie opens on the weekend. It’s not a long book. It’ll take you a couple of hours. And then you won’t be able to help yourself and you’ll read the sequel, Where She Went, which is also quick. Full Story

Despite the fact that she’s never been better than she has this summer, after she broke up with Casper Smart, JLO might have gotten back together with the Slum Bear. They were photographed together today in LA. He’s driving. She’s trying to hide. YES, JLO HIDE. Hide because you SHOULD be embarrassed. Full Story

It’s not a fair fight. It isn’t. Because they start playing Bell Biv Devoe’s Poison before you even have a chance to form an opinion on whether you want to watch the movie or not. The fact is we shouldn’t, really. A movie about the behind-the-scenes of Saved By The Bell – starring teenage actors as teenage actors – is not exactly going to change our world. Full Story

Actors take jobs. Benedict Cumberbatch is an actor, and he’s just taken a job portraying the tiger Shere Khan in Andy Serkis’s Jungle Book (not to be confused with Jon Favreau’s Jungle Book). If all you care about is that Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice will be coming out of a tiger’s mouth, then great, this is your money shot, stop reading. Full Story
Madonna’s birthday was on Saturday. From the looks of it on Instagram her party was flapper themed. I love the headpiece she’s wearing in this shot: The photo ended up getting taken down because Instagram hates nipples. Full Story
Well sh-t. We’re getting so many appealing options for fall fragrances these days. If you buy Jessica Simpson, your choice is apparently to smell like tits. Click here to see her tits in the post from yesterday. If you buy Gwyneth Paltrow for Hugo Boss, the option is to smell like…smug? The entire time in this commercial, G’s lips remain pressed together, unlike Porny who can never seem to close her mouth. Full Story
Rihanna and Drake met up at a club last night in New York. It’s the first time they’ve been out together publicly since they broke up (again) in April/May. Can they be “just” friends? It’s never worked out that way before. But it’s a good thing that they keep trying, right? Or is it a bad thing because the more they keep trying, it’s kinda like Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber? Or maybe it’s because she wants to see if she can get his “anaconda” up higher than Nicki Minaj. Full Story
Henry Cavill was photographed yesterday in Detroit on the set of Batfleck yesterday wearing his Superman costume underneath a black robe. The money shot, of course, is going to be when we finally get to see him and Ben Affleck’s Batman together. This hasn’t happened yet and Comic-Con doesn’t count. Full Story
Virginia Champoux is an OG, Original Gossip. She’s been visiting this site since it started. It has been an honour to know her, not only because she knows her sh-t, but because she’s a fighter, she’s a boss. And right now, she’s f-cking cancer in the ass. Virginia will be walking 60km for the Weekend To End Women’s Cancers. Full Story
HBO has released a trailer for the upcoming On The Run concert film that’s to be shot in Paris in September, then airing on HBO Canada and HBO on September 20. So if the Carter Corporation is dissolving, it won’t be until then. At least? We should have a better idea, or what we think is a better idea, in 6 days on Sunday, at the MTV VMAs.
Someone emailed to ask a very good question this weekend: Beyonce managed to lock down an entire album, 17 songs and videos, but how is it that EVERYONE seems to be talking sh-t and they can’t control those leaks?
Over the weekend she posted a photo of a set of open handcuffs. OMG IS IT A MESSAGE?
What does Beyonce hate the most? She hates it when other people are telling HER story. Will she let them be right? Because if she does this, if she walks away from Jay and her marriage, she makes them right. Read Full Intro
