On Saturday night Drake was in Atlanta, partying in yellow with Kanye West, 2Chainz, Future, and several other rappers (not all are included in these shots). Then he flew home to Toronto to surprise his friend P Reign at the MMVAs. But there may have been another motivation? Drake wasn’t planning on staying long after his appearance at the show. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Drake showed up at the Much Music Video Awards last night in Toronto, hosted by Ed Sheeran. It was a surprise. He was there to honour and celebrate his boy P Reign who really didn’t expect Drake to show, as he said afterwards that:

“I honestly didn’t know (he’d be here). He doesn’t make a lot of things I ask him to be at, so let’s just put that out there. I thought there was no way in hell.”

I mean his outfit alone would suggest it; Duana’s probably already bought that “6” hoodie online. She LOVES Drake. And she LOVES Toronto. Another reason P Reign was probably genuinely shocked - Drake was in Atlanta performing the night before coming home. And, you know, he could have just flown back to LA for another party in the foam pool. As I mentioned last week in Smutty Tingles, that was the moment I realised I’ve never lived. It’s not just being invited to one, it’s being invited to one at the age where you should be invited to one.

By the way, at one point, while on stage, a propos of nothing, Drake shouted out Gigi Hadid, the model of the moment:

“Gigi Hadid you’re a sweetie pie tonight”

They’ve been friends for a while. She’s only just 20 now. Like he would have known her from when she was just 16 or 17 years old. Right now, Gigi is dealing with Joe Jonas. Which would mean it’s the perfect big brother moment for Drake to be like…um… are you sure? PS. Last names should be emblazoned across the back of every item of clothing.

Yours in gossip,

Allison Janney and Ellen Page are back together, seen here yesterday on the set of Tallulah in New York. Coincidentally, it’s another movie about a baby. The baby’s mother is evidently a f-ck up. So Ellen rescues her and pretends she’s the mother instead, helped by her boyfriend’s mother, presumably played by Allison. Full Story

Speaking of Justin Bieber… He’s in Miami with friends, including Hailey Baldwin who might be more than his friend. Everyone’s been wondering whether or not they’ve crossed that line. Ask Mark Wahlberg. He knows all about the f-cking line. As you can see, the two are rather tactile, although in these shots, their physical affection doesn’t definitely confirm anything. Full Story

This is happening again… Justin Bieber + Selena Gomez. Right now, it’s blowing up on Twitter. Because last night they showed up together on Snapchat with some friends and Rich Wilkerson Jr, the pastor. And you know how this sh-t works. If they didn’t want you to know they were hanging out and coming to these conclusions, they wouldn’t have allowed themselves to be posted so that you would see them hanging out and come to these conclusions. Full Story

There was a screening for Southpaw in Cannes on Friday. And some reported that Rachel McAdams was there alongside Jake Gyllenhaal. But on Saturday she was in Muskoka, 2 or so hours outside of Toronto, for her sister Kayleen’s wedding. Pretty sure, given how close she is to her family, that she wouldn’t have risked missing it to rush to France and come back on a tight turnaround. Full Story

In the latest installment of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke, Justin Bieber comes along for the ride. No, nothing will ever be better than Mimi glittering all over James’s vehicle as he plays hit after hit – HER  hits, obviously – but this interview format, side by side, with music, driving around Los Angeles, is really effective. Full Story

We can fight about everything else. But we can’t fight about this. There’s no debate. Even though it’s Justin Bieber… What he’s wearing here, custom Balmain by Olivier Rousteing is everything that the MET Gala was supposed to be last night. Double dragons up the sleeves? The double-breasted shirt?!?! The DOUBLE-BREASTED SHIRT!!! THE DOUBLE BREASTED-SHIRT!!! The fit of the pants? There is no Chinese person on this planet who isn’t down with this. Full Story

Have you seen Ryan Gosling in The United States Of Leland? It was years ago. His character had dark hair. He was adorable. Ryan Gosling is currently working on The Big Short. His character has dark hair. He is not adorable. Maybe it’s age. OMG, in this case, a rare case, is age actually gender democratic? Ryan Gosling, the celebrity human pillow, now in his 30s, doesn’t look good with dark hair. Full Story
