Dear Gossips,

The Daily Mail, that paragon of accuracy, is reporting that Justin Bieber will soon be a Calvin Klein underwear model. Well, he’s worked hard enough for it. Supposedly the brand has signed JB to front their next campaign. The photo shoot, according to the Daily Mail, has already happened.

Um.

Calvin Klein juuuuust featured Charlie Hunnam in a fragrance ad for Reveal.

I know fragrance and underwear are different business streams but under one label, how did we get from Charlie Hunnam to Justin Bieber?

Yours in gossip,

One of the movies that caught my eye at this year’s Sundance was Dear White People, a satire of race politics centered around an African-American themed party thrown by white kids on a college campus and the hell that breaks loose afterward. It was a hit at Sundance, winning a Special Jury Prize and netting writer/director Justin Simien a Breakthrough Talent award. Full Story

She’s great at giving big smiles, pretending her personality is as sweet as her voice. It depends. If she’s talking to Ellen DeGeneres, well, of course she’s lovely and accommodating. But what if it’s a child in a wheelchair? There was a kid who had a wish. The wish was to meet her favourite star. Full Story

Mai Duong is 34 years old. She was pregnant with her second child when she was diagnosed with leukemia last year. She needs a bone marrow or stem cell transplant and she only has six weeks. The problem is that there are not enough donors who’ve registered with the match system in the Asian community. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

It’s Big G’s first birthday! His parents have urged the public to refrain from sending gifts, not only because that child has everything he could possible want, but also because that child only wants things he can crush. Like butterflies.

More images have been released from Big G’s visit to the butterfly exhibit, his parents gifting us with two more shots of the Bruiser Prince. As you can see, he’s fascinated by them, and at one point, reaches out to touch one on his father’s hand. That poor butterfly must have been like F-ck Me, how did I get chosen to hang out with the Gregor Clegane of the Windsor line?

And then there’s Blake Lively who launched Preserve late yesterday, reportedly two days ahead of schedule, clearly not intimidated by the royal milestone.  Read Full Intro

Duana texted me last night around dinner time quoting a tweet from someone at the TCAs about Charlie Hunnam walking onstage with his backpack. Right. My response: It’s his signature! We saw it exactly one year ago today here and again here Full Story

Sarah Posted by Sarah

It’s that time of year again, when the movie studios and TV networks venture into the Dork Forest to shill their wares in the hopes of generating audience interest in movies we won’t be seeing for another year. There’s been a curious development at Comic-Con over the last couple years, though: Movie studios have started drawing down their presence in Hall H. Full Story

Today is July 22. It’s also Selena Gomez’s champagne birthday. I love a champagne birthday. Apparently she’s celebrating in Saint Tropez with her new best friend Cara Delevingne. They’re on a massive yacht. Fitting for a champagne birthday, right? And here’s something Taylor Swift just posted on Instagram: No time for girl sh-t on a champagne birthday? Or…is Taylor trying to tell us she’s the bigger one? So far, no birthday messages from Justin Bieber. Full Story

There’s been some buzz that Zoe Saldana is pregnant. If she is, she wore a dress to try and distract from it last night at the Guardians Of The Galaxy premiere. So, while you baby-obsessed are busy trying to figure out whether or not it’s a bump, I’ll be over here talking about her hair… As bobs go, this is not the best I’ve seen. Full Story

TIFF announced its first slate of films for this year’s festival September 4-14. It’s a big ass deal, not only because I live in Toronto and I work for etalk and we cover it top to bottom but because TIFF is where people come to kick off their campaigns. Full Story

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris were on hand at the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy last night to christen Pratt’s new career as a movie star. I’m not loving his suit. It’s boring, and the tie looks sloppy (needs pressing?), and his douche hair is too much. Chris Pratt is so cute! What is this look? Why is he fighting his hotness? Chris Evans is always fighting his hotness—I need one of the Chrises to just own his sh*t and show up looking great. Full Story

Now here’s someone who would never, ever trash-talk Leonardo DiCaprio. Or risk excommunication. Check out Bradley Cooper in a leather bomber at the Hollywood premiere of Guardians Of The Galaxy last night. As Sarah’s been saying, his Rocket Raccoon almost steals the movie. His voice performance in the role is said to be outstanding. Full Story

So…this appeared on Instagram last night: See, that’s the kind of gossip I’m talking about. Good Gossip. Not that we should believe what we read on Twitter and Instagram, of course not. It’s just… a kind of random story for a random person to make up. Full Story
