Mimi kicked off her Vegas residency last night. And look at the stage… BUTTERFLY WINGS. Our butterfly comes flying out of butterfly wings! Well… “Flying” might not be the right word. Our butterfly doesn’t actually fly. Instead, our butterfly, according to the New York Times review of the show, is “wheeled” out, several times. Full Story

Fight! Boy fight! It’s been, what?, a month since Zayn Malik announced he was leaving One Direction? They said it was amicable. Oh come on. It’s never amicable. At least not at the beginning. This sh-t takes years to get over. Can you imagine if Twitter was around when Geri left the Spice Girls? Twitter is a gift at times like this. Full Story

Taylor Swift was not at the MET Gala this year because she was in Tokyo, kicking off the 1989 tour. Are you going? Do you have tickets? I have tickets. I gave Taylor Swift my money for my niece’s Christmas present (she’s going in August in Vancouver) and I’ll be at the show in Toronto. Full Story

The Billboard Latin Music Awards happened last night. And everyone’s talking about Jennifer Lopez’s amazing tribute to Selena. It was JLO y Los Dinos. It was a medley. And it was spectacular. I’ve mentioned several times how much I loved that movie. How many times I’ve seen it. Full Story

I am still not sick of Nick Jonas’s Jealous. And it’s been soooo long. But no, not tired of it. Not at all. You know who I am tired of though? And this will bring the hate, I’m sure: Ed Sheeran. Sorry. I hate that song about loving you at 73 or whatever. CAN’T STAND IT. Anyway, Nick is big. Full Story

Robin Leach, yes, that Robin Leach, of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, interviewed Mimi yesterday ahead of her Vegas debut. This will be the best 8 minutes of your life, the video below. First of all, he makes her stand the entire time. STAND! For 8 minutes! And she doesn’t fall over! I need to know if there were 3 people underneath her holding her upright. Full Story

In a pink ride. In a tricked out dress. And all kinds of curves. That, um, don’t match the curves on the official billboard. The billboard is how Mimi sees herself. It’s like seeing Mimi through Mimi’s eyes. Fascinating. Come on. If this isn’t getting you through your sh-tty Tuesday, my question to you is how you define Happiness. Full Story

Yeah. F-ck yeah. Brandon Flowers was at the Tribeca Film Festival last night for a screening and then he performed at a Frank Sinatra tribute…Christ Jesus… in a tuxedo. At one point he sang Come Fly With Me. With that voice. Even Bono worships that voice. That voice in combination with that face. Full Story

The Academy of Country Music Awards happened last night in Texas. Taylor Swift received the Milestone Award. She’s 25 years old. And she’s making pop music now. They made jokes about it, I think at the Country Music Awards, shortly after 1989 came out? Carrie Underwood? Something about never getting back together? In recent months though, Taylor and Country have actually gotten back together, although she would say they never broke up in the first place. Full Story

Here’s FKA twigs yesterday arriving at her show in LA. Afterwards, she and Robert Pattinson were seen heading to a party. Interestingly enough, Rick Rubin was spotted arriving at the twigs performance. What would (or will) that look like? A twigs-Rubin collaboration? Twigs is scheduled to be at Coachella again this weekend. Full Story

Robert Pattinson was at Coachella this weekend. Not his first time. And if he wasn’t dating one of the performers, he might still have been there. But, as it happens, he’s engaged to FKA twigs. And she was there. And he was supporting. And then they held hands and went to check out some of the other stages. Full Story

Madonna joined Drake on stage at Coachella this weekend. At one point, while he was sitting in a chair, she approached him from behind and put her tongue in his mouth. This seems to happen to him a lot. When he’s in a chair. Like with Nicki Minaj in the Anaconda video. I’m with Madonna here. Full Story

I feel compelled to repeat this whenever I write about Iggy Azalea: I am not a believer. The music does nothing for me. And the personality, I mean, I just don't care. Do you care? If you care, convince me why I should. Anyway, Iggy and Britney are collaborating on a new song called Pretty Girls. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Yesterday was supposed to be a big day for Madonna as the Ghosttown video was scheduled to drop at 1pm. I set the alarm. I couldn’t wait to see it after wrapping The Social at 2pm. Turns out I wasn’t missing anything. Because Meerkat, the app that had the exclusive on the video, was down. You know how she is. You know how she rehearses the sh-t of her sh-t. And that she hates this kind of sloppy. But it was sloppy. And I feel like the last few months of this album release have been much sloppier than we’re used to seeing from her. No one is harder on herself than Madonna. She has set the standard of best expectation for herself, so when she doesn’t meet that, no matter who’s to blame, it kills her.

But first…who IS to blame? It’s not like there weren’t other apps, other options, options that have proven track records.  Read Full Intro
