I heard a song on the radio on the way to work this morning and it made me want to watch the video as soon as I came into the office. Remember Paula Abdul’s Rush Rush with Keanu Reeves as James Dean?
The song is still super corny, almost sickly. Back then I remember being kinda skeeved by some of the lyrics. Can you imagine singing that to someone?
Hurry hurry lover, come to me
I wanna see
I wanna see you get free with me
Hard to believe when the video first came out, its suggestiveness was enough for people. Now I watch it by today’s standards and it’s even cleaner than a Taylor Swift concert. If this song came out today, Paula and Keanu would be rubbing up on each other a lot harder. And you know what? I would have wanted to see that. Read Full Intro
Ben Affleck was papped on his way to a meeting today. These photos gave me a flashback. It’s the way his hair is combed. And the white t-shirt. Do you know what I’m thinking about? I’ll give you a minute and in that time I’ll talk about how he’s so big right now, for Batfleck, in the chest etc, that he’s arms don’t touch his body. Full Story
I received an email today from someone called Christie who read the aforementioned Vanity Fair France piece about Kristen Stewart and because the article did not specify in bold all caps that Stewart and Robert Pattinson had broken up, Christie took this to mean that…maybe…there’s still hope.

This is Kristen Stewart for Vanity Fair France. Love the way they’ve styled her, particularly the first shot attached, slouching down against the wall, sweater falling off her shoulder, one leg tucked underneath her, the other jutting out seductively. “Seductive” is not an adjective often associated with Stewart…and yet here, in this pose, she wears it well.

You know what I’ve been talking about a lot the last couple of days? Justin Theroux’s penis. My friend N brought it up first after watching The Leftovers. He runs in every episode. And when he’s running, it’s right there. Like, right there. I swear we’re not being pervs about it. Full Story
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are just about done. While no official announcement has been made, it’s undeniable now that not only is a confirmation imminent but that they are never, ever getting back together. According to TMZ the two are even getting on quite well, for the sake of the children, and most of the terms of the divorce have already been settled, with Nick coming out of this looking really, really good.

Venice. Birdman opens the festival tonight. Here’s the cast with director Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu at the photo call today…already looking triumphant? Everyone is watching Birdman as one of the expected contenders for Oscar. They’ve been talking like Michael Keaton is a lock. Full Story
New trailer for Gone Girl that was released during the Emmys is now online. It’s the most of Rosamund Pike’s Amy Dunne that we’ve seen so far. I’m trying to decide about her voice. Pike has a lovely, low voice. Did you hear Amy’s voice like that in your head? Did Amazing Amy speak in a sultry seductive voice? Or was her voice more like a bell in your head? I want to say it was more like a bell. Full Story
George Clooney is getting married…eventually. I wrote about the new wedding rumours yesterday – click here for a refresher. Now the speculation is that it’ll be in three parts: first a civil ceremony in England on September 12 followed by a weekend party in Venice on September 26 and a bigger castle-style reception in England again on October 25.

The Emmys could have totally used some more Beyonce. Because no matter how bad it got on Sunday night, at least you knew there would be a payoff at the very end, right?
As Duana pointed out, we spent the VMAs asking each other “who are these people?” and we spent the Emmys asking each other “why is it always the same people?” Which is why we ended up spending the whole night on the liveblog trying to decide who’s grosser than Adam Levine.
Here’s what we concluded:
We would rather Fred Armisen over Adam Levine. We would rather Weird Al Yankovic over Adam Levine. I would rather Joffrey from Game Of Thrones over Adam Levine. That’s where Duana drew the line because she wouldn’t want to be killed by crossbow during sex. But think about it. Read Full Intro
George Clooney did not marry Amal Alamuddin this weekend while we were obsessing over the Beyonce Video Awards and the Emmys. Now that the international entertainment media shifts its focus to Venice then, it’s not likely he’ll do an Italian wedding during the next two weeks. So there are now new rumours. Full Story
