TIME has released its annual list of 100 Most Influential People. The categories are: Titans, Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Icons. So who’s a Titan?
Beyonce, of course.
To me, what’s been most interesting on this list isn’t necessarily who’s on it but the people who are chosen or have volunteered to write the piece that accompanies the entry. Beyonce’s, for example, was written by Sheryl Sandberg. Pharrell, who is also a Titan, was honoured by Justin Timberlake – who did it last year for Jimmy Fallon and made it all about himself (click here for a refresher). JT managed to restrain his ego this time.
Under the Icon category, we find…Carrie Underwood. Read Full Intro

Taylor Kitsch was in Dallas last night to watch the Stars even up their playoff series against the Anaheim Ducks who were playing without Ryan Getzlaf. Kitsch is Canadian. He’s obviously a hockey fan. Why Dallas? My presumption: Friday Night Lights. Filmed in Austin. And he has a home there. Full Story
The big New York premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 happens tonight. The cast visited Good Morning America today. Andrew Garfield’s coat is so beautiful I want it for myself. He and Emma Stone seemed to match nicely; she wore a short dress. I wonder often about the dress lengths for celebrities. Full Story
Tom Hardy’s been in New York this week promoting Locke. The film is receiving really great reviews, rating at 90% currently on Rotten Tomatoes. In support of Locke, they’ve set up some selective press for Hardy, including an interview with ESQUIRE which I finally got around to reading today. Full Story

If you’ve been visiting my blog for long enough, you know how devoted I am to Christy Turlington. And she was just named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential for 2014 in the Icon category, recognised for her work as an “ambassador for maternal health”. Turlington’s piece was written by Melinda Gates. Full Story

Come on. How could I resist? You know how I feel about Les Miserables. And if you want to read something subversive into it, considering the subject matter, fine, but really, I’m just thinking of a song. Anyway, Prince William and his Catherine are almost at the end of their tour of New Zealand and Australia. Full Story
Two weeks ago, George Clooney was in Vegas with Rande Gerber and some of this other Casamigos tequila partners having dinner with Vegas magnate Steve Wynn. There was an argument. Wynn says Clooney was a dick and Clooney says Wynn was a dick and, well, basically, rich people can’t get along. Amazingly they’re both talking to the media about what went down. Full Story

Idris Elba announced on Twitter that his son Winston had arrived last week. Thursday, I think. He attached a photo: Yesterday Elba was in London, seen here making an appearance on The One Show. He probably hasn’t slept much but still, yes, he looks HOT. Full Story
Been growing a small crush on Brian Williams for years – mostly because I love it when he’s on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. But now? After his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon this week?
For the Gin and Juice, sure. And the Rapper’s Delight before that, fine. But mostly it’s the interview. He is so f-cking great in this interview. One minute Williams is invoking Foxy Brown. The next he’s dropping news anchor phrasing, and all the gravitas that comes with it. News Anchors, ah yes. We’re supposed to take them seriously. We’re ONLY supposed to take them seriously. Most of them, almost all of them, wouldn’t get loose like this for fear that we’ll never again take them seriously.
But I know he knows his sh-t. Read Full Intro
I love these photos. And I believe them. Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton have been everywhere together the last few weeks to promote The Other Woman. Today they were in NY for the morning shows. I'm all about how Cam's leaning into Leslie who's touching her face, smoothing hair off her forehead. Full Story
