Dear Gossips,

  If you’ve been visiting this blog regularly over the last 15 years, maybe you’re tired of me evangelising about YA books. I’m not sorry about this. My favourite book, period, of 2017 was Angie Thomas’s The Hate U Give.  Read Full Intro

Maria is away today so I’m taking over. She’s worried about the Beckhams announcing some bad news while she’s on holiday. It’s going to be OK, I think. At least until Monday. Right? RIGHT?  Remember when I used to say about Blake Lively – how did she DO that? Pete Davidson keeps saying it about himself now. Full Story

Beyoncé and Jay-Z, on an off night from the On the Run 2 tour last night, went to the Arts Club in London. According to photographers, they were there for over six hours, hanging out with friends, perhaps celebrating the success of their latest project, Everything Is Love and the Apesh-t video which… I mean… is there another video to come out this year that can match what the Carters did at the Louvre? All week people have been processing Apesh-t, considering its academic value, analyzing its art history references, analyzing its social messaging. Full Story

This definitely counts as a celebrity romance update. And sort of a royal update? Jon Snow aka Kit Harington is King in the North and, with his now revealed birthright, has a claim to the Iron Throne. He’s marrying Rose Leslie tomorrow in Scotland. At a castle. Her family has owned the castle for 900 years. Full Story

It was reported three weeks ago that Emma Watson and Chord Overstreet had broken up.  They unfollowed each other on Instagram and, as we know, as silly as it seems, that’s a real thing now. Full Story

Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus have been seen together in LA a few times this week. Yesterday they were photographed at his office. Also yesterday ET gave us an update about their relationship.

Channing and Jenna keep it drama-free

It’s been almost three months since Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan announced their separation. Here they are yesterday taking their daughter Everly to a class, entering separately. They said that they were parting amicably. They all say they’re parting amicably. It is often not amicable. But this can be taken as a sign that it’s not ugly between them and hopefully that it won’t get ugly between them. Full Story
