Welcome back to our American friends returning from Thanksgiving. We were business as usual yesterday here if you want to get caught up.
Today is for the nerds. Because the first Star Wars 7 teaser trailer will be released in select theatres and iTunes. It will run 88 seconds. It is expected to dominate social media. It’s our introduction to how JJ Abrams will be handling The Force.
Sarah’s the proud nerd here at LaineyGossip so she’ll be posting about it later, hoping we’ll be able to find an embeddable version.
In the meantime, are you shopping? Or are you waiting for Monday to do it online? Sasha and I have something for you on Monday if you’re holding off until after the weekend. We’re finalising things this weekend and can’t wait to share with you – for a good cause! Read Full Intro

Yesterday in Smutty Tingles, I wrote that “I have Benedict Cumberbatch love and engagement fatigue, GOD." Every day there’s another quote about how much he loves his fiancée and how much she loves him and why they decided to list their engagement and why she walked the carpet with him at the premiere.

It’s Black Friday here in the US, the day after Thanksgiving, during which we participate in the ritual sacrifice of holiday shoppers so that the old gods may be appeased and the winter will be a short one. Naturally, on a day dedicated to commerce and conspicuous consumption, Disney decided it was as good a time as any to premiere the first teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Full Story
Cara Delevingne has been in LA all week. The other day she was hanging out with Cody Simpson and model Gigi Hadid. I’ve attached photos below. Last night though, for US Thanksgiving, she was over at Kate Hudson’s, hanging out with the entire family. Goldie, Kurt Russell, Kate’s brothers… And dancing. Full Story

Lorella texted me this morning and asked me if I’d heard Idris Elba’s new song. I told her I hadn’t and that I didn’t want to. Because…well… You’ve seen his Private Garden before, right? Look. I’d love a situation in which my private garden and Idris Elba are having a conversation but this…was not what I had in mind a few years ago when I first wrote about it: But then Lorella clarified that she’d heard the new song on the radio in London and it was good.

I still haven’t seen Avatar. Didn’t care, don’t care.
Avatar was a big f-cking deal…for 6 months. But, really, who cares about Avatar anymore? Do people really sit around, impatiently, waiting for new Avatars? There are three new Avatar movies coming out in 2016, 2017, and 2018. James Cameron is promising that they will blow your ass out:
"I can tell you one thing about them," Cameron laughs when Empire nonchalantly enquiries about storylines. "They're gonna be bitchin'. You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open." (Source)
Who even says that anymore???
“Bitchin’”, and its irrelevance, pretty much sums that up for me. Read Full Intro

People have been talking about Nick Jonas since the end of the summer. I’ve not posted once about him. Part of it is because I didn’t quite believe it would stick. But Nick Jonas seems to be sticking. Is it the song? Is it Jealous? I mean, it’s a good song. It’s not a song I blast on repeat but it’s not JLO’s Booty either. Full Story
Jake Gyllenhaal’s interview on Letterman aired last night. He’s adorable. The entire time he’s adorable. So I’ve posted the full clip for you at the bottom of this post and, since it’s a slow day, I recommend watching all of it. Jake and Dave have great chemistry. Full Story
