Dear Gossips,

Um. Excuse me. Did we know that Mimi is on Match.com! That totally deserves an interrobang. (Thanks Duana)

According to PEOPLE, Mimi collaborated with Match to premiere the video for Infinity, featuring Jussie Smollett. In the “In Her Own Words” section of her profile, she quotes her lyrics to Dreamlover. Under “Sports & Exercise” she lists swimming and yoga. Swimming?

Oh, you mean the time she got into the pool in a black floor length gown?

Also, she calls herself a “social drinker”. Right. Note also that one of the photos she’s using is of her pouring champagne in one of her dressing rooms (taken from a scene in the video which, obviously, is full of amazing).

Click here to view Mimi’s full profile. It’s a blessing. She’s blessed us. Again.

Yours in gossip,

Eddie Redmayne has joined the Harry Potter family. It was confirmed yesterday that Eddie will play Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. The first film of the planned trilogy will be released November 2016 and is being written by JK Rowling herself. In case you didn’t know – and, um, why wouldn’t you, didn’t we ALL go to Hogwarts??? – these movies are prequels to the story we’ve practically memorised; Newt Scamander wrote the Fantastic Beasts textbook that Harry, Hermione, and Ron – but really only Hermione – studied at school. Full Story

You remember when there was a Beyonce and a Sasha Fierce? FKA twigs has one too. Only, hilariously, hers is called “Melissa”. I don’t know why that’s so funny to me. And she claims it’s not a “weird alter ego” which is maybe why it’s “Melissa”. Full Story

So says Paul Feig, the director of the all-female Ghostbusters reboot. In an interview with AlloCine while promoting Spy, Feig said the only way he can see to remake Ghostbusters is to reimagine it with women. I love that he says this, that the only way it makes sense to him is as a female-driven project. Full Story

Taylor Swift, as we know, as we’ve seen, repeatedly, every day, everywhere, is friends with everyone. With one exception: Katy Perry. OK two. Katy Perry and John Mayer. But two of her friends, Lorde and Ellie Goulding were partying recently with Katy Perry. The evidence is on Instagram. Here’s what Lorde’s ma posted:     it's @lordemusic as the dancing girl emoji 💃🏽 Full Story

It’s a momentous day. There hasn’t been a day like this in almost 20 years. Today, Judy Blume releases her new book, In The Unlikely Event. I know a lot of you feel the way Lainey and I feel about that. That Judy Blume ushered you through your childhood, was accessible but not overbearing and condescending in your adolescence, and somehow seemed to be a friend who’d always been there in adulthood. Full Story

I read a great article over at Slate this weekend: How Entourage went from critical darling to cultural punching bag. Basically we’ve changed since Entourage first launched. We’ve asked for more in the way women are represented, not just in relationship to men, but in the way we ask for better from them. Full Story

After spending part of last week in LA to celebrate daughter Lily Rose’s 16th birthday, Johnny Depp has returned to Australia to resume work on Pirates 5. Apparently authorities held him and Amber Heard on his private jet for an hour to search the aircraft to go through their luggage, extra suspicious now because of the dogs incident. Full Story

Henry Cavill got dumped

By his investors, that is. Cavill was slated to star in the blatant Bond knock-off Stratton, in which he was to play an embattled MI5 agent who is the world's last hope against corruption or conspiracy or crab monsters or whatever. The movie was supposed to start principal photography this week, but only days before production, Cavill bailed on the project like it was Kaley Cuoco. Full Story

CFDA Awards last night in New York. Julianna Margulies wore a sheer Michael Kors to show off her black underwear which, really, is the only way to make this dress interesting because otherwise I don’t love it. The material is what bothers me, I think. The material is dress emporium, destination: mall. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Winter is here… with Child White Walkers. OMG, Game Of Thrones, I thought #9 was when the crazy sh-t usually goes down…?! So how did you sleep last night? Because I went to bed reminiscing about how Joffrey seems so mild now compared to the juvenile delinquent members of the Dead Army. Sarah’s recap is coming up first.

While some of us – many of us – were desperately hoping for dragons and direwolves to show up, the Drama Awards and the Critics’ Choice Television Awards happened last night. Silicon Valley and Transparent (have you started watching this yet? WHY NOT???) were honoured. Amy Schumer was honoured. Bessie was honoured. And The Americans. At no point were Big Bang Theory or Modern Family honoured. So, basically, this is not the Emmys.

Speaking of Amy Schumer, she wasn’t at the TV Awards because she was busy collecting her Peabody Award over in New York and kissing Tina Fey. Photos from the events will be posted on the main page and on LifeStyle.

Yours in gossip,
