As mentioned yesterday, since it was a long weekend in most of Canada, we gave the site a mini-facelift. Because of this, you may need to refresh your browser a couple of times for the changes to take effect. Also, if you subscribe to the newsletter, that will be restored tomorrow. Thank you so much for your understanding, especially since another breakup went down on Monday. More on Gwen and Gavin to come.
So far it’s been the summer of splits. So far that doesn’t include Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. Since these things usually come in threes, and since the tabloids were aiming for a target after the Affleck-Garner and Shelton-Lambert announcements, they landed on the Smiths. Not happening, at least according to Will, who posted this message on Facebook:
And here’s Jada’s response:
My king has spoken.— Jada Pinkett Smith (@jadapsmith) August 3, 2015
Some people find that romantic, all that “king” and “queen” business. If you’re his queen and he’s your king though, who does the dishes?

Before we begin, let’s agree on one fundamental about Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale: Between the two of them, Gwen is the bigger deal. That’s not up for dispute. Like, back in the 90s, Gavin Rossdale might have had a moment, but come on now, Gwen Stefani is the superstar in this relationship. Full Story
Tom Cruise had a big weekend. A return to form weekend? Rogue Nation was projected to open at $40 million. Right now it looks like over $55 million. So, basically, he has to keep jumping onto airplanes.
Remember how we'd see Ben Affleck around in Atlanta practically every day, playing off-on with that wedding ring? Then US Weekly introduced us to his nanny. Ben's gone undercover since. Which should tell you something about pap photos and how they happen. Read Full Intro
Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?
This is the lyric from Drake’s Back To Back that everyone keeps talking about. But I prefer this one:
I don’t wanna her about this ever again
Not even when she tell ‘em that they better as friends
You know why that’s so good? Because it was pre-emptive. Because that’s the sh-t that they always say about Drake re: Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. Read Full Intro

It’s a long weekend in Canada (but I’ll be posting on Monday). Before you go… And you might be going to the movies this weekend, long or not, in Canada or not, so here’s a message from Coach Taylor. Oh my God, I missed him SO much. I think I might have to marathon FNL this weekend just because of this. Full Story

Jessica Alba is promoting The Honest Co.’s new femcare line (which inexplicably boxes tampons to look like “artisanal chocolates”) so is of course pulling out her philosophies on parenting in a new interview. The thing about Jessica Alba is that she frequently talks out of both sides of her mouth, changing the narrative whenever it suits her. Full Story
I just realised it’s Friday and I haven’t written once about Taylor Swift’s friend collecting. She’s gone an entire week without collecting a friend! Does that mean the backlash really is in full effect? In the absence of any updates to Taylor Swift Collection, we have Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence. Full Story
For a few weeks now, British gossips have been reporting that there’s trouble between Kate Moss and her husband Jamie Hince. Something about not spending time together and she hates a few of his friends. They’ve not been seen together in months. And now, these photos of Jamie in LA with model Jessica Stam. Full Story
The downside of Johnny Depp always doing weird voices and wearing elaborate makeup for his film roles is that it has killed the magic of his performances. I LOVED Johnny Depp for years and years—he was one of my favorites when I started writing for this site—but he has killed my appreciation for his art with his constant stream of weirdo performances and his scarfy evolution (scarfolution) into a parody of himself.

Today is the last day of July. It’s been a great month in gossip. Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, and Katy Perry gave us Girl Sh-t. Drake and Meek Mill are giving us Boy Sh-t. Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton gave us Country Sh-t. But the smuttiest sh-t belongs to Ben Affleck, often the creator of his own sh-t situation because this guy, this guy can’t help himself.
