Beyonce and JayZ took the Blue Ivy Carter to the Louvre yesterday. They’ve been playing happy Parisian family for a few weeks now since the end of the On The Run tour. Please note Blue’s leather jacket. It’s SKIRTED. It’s gorgeous. Is it better than any leather jacket you’ve ever had? I thought so. Full Story

Tom Cruise is working Mission: Impossible 5 in London. No breaks on the weekends, I guess, as he was seen on set yesterday double-fisting a Blackberry and an iPhone/Pod. Me too! So here’s what I was thinking today. List the top movies – universally considered to be Top Movie Stars, male: Denzel Washington, married Will Smith, married Robert Downey Jr, married Brad Pitt, married George Clooney, married – GEORGE CLOONEY IS MARRIED Johnny Depp, engaged Tom Cruise… Tom Cruise…? Single man standing. Full Story

This is a photo taken at a VMAs after-party of Robin Thicke posing with some random with his finger trying to go up her ass – check out the mirror in the background. The picture was posted on Twitter and then retweeted at his wife Paula Patton. Yesterday Thicke and Patton were papped on the beach in Miami with their young son Julian. Full Story

Deep Thoughts on Chris Evans

I have always liked Chris Evans. In my early days writing for LaineyGossip, I took a lot of sh*t from Lainey for liking him, but I think maybe she’s starting to come around. He’s a low-key guy, good looking but not obnoxious about it, and thanks to the career intervention of Marvel and Captain America, he’s finally in some movies that aren’t embarrassing to be caught seeing in public. Full Story

This is the cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair -- a beautiful, perfectly complexioned, soft-eyed Katie Holmes looks out at us above a headline about WHAT SHE DIDN’T KNOW, followed by these magic words: Marriage, Scientology-style Brilliant, non? It’s like... the Chanel of tabloid covers. Full Story

I was a big fan of Jim Carrey when I was a kid. In Living Color was one of my touchstones, one of my earliest influences and it (and Kids in the Hall--hands down, Canada’s most important cultural export besides Strange Brew) was one of the first things that made me want to be a comedian. I loved Carrey on that show. Full Story

Lauren Conrad on books, portion control, and editing

I love people’s inexplicable celebrity follows.  They’re not crushes, they may not even be people you like, but you follow them without realizing you’re doing it, spit out  their resume without thinking every time someone idly wonders “whatever happened to”, and it inevitably proves to be embarrassing… As evidenced by the fact that I need to scream for a minute about Lauren Conrad. Full Story

A Study in the Second Act: Kevin Costner

He was one of the biggest stars on the planet in the 1990s, not only bankable as an actor but as a director, too, courtesy the success of Dances with Wolves. Through 1994, Kevin Costner was king. But then came Waterworld—at the time, the most expensive movie ever made—which was disastrously bad and while it has ultimately made money, it was labelled a “bomb” because of its poor domestic box office. Full Story

Miley’s rite of passage

Breaking... Miley Cyrus cut her hair. Drastically. It was a trending topic worldwide on Twitter yesterday, largely encouraged by Miley herself who first posted the before and after shots, and is continuing to post photos from every angle, much like we all do when we have our makeup done, or our hair styled, and can’t stop looking in the mirror -- only our mirrors don’t talk back; her mirror is an online audience that can and will throw sh-t back in the reflection. Full Story

Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher: Mission Impossible?

Lainey Posted by Lainey

The Jack Reacher trailer has been released. And what timing too. More on this in a minute... But what’s with the music? Just me or does it sound like Mission: Impossible? So Tom Cruise is supposed to be a badass. Righteous. Able to take on several thugs all by himself. And f-ck a broad on the side. Full Story

Gwyneth couldn’t hold Cameron Diaz’s hand last night for too long because she had to hang out with former President Bill Clinton at the Clinton Foundation Millennium Network in London. She wore a f-cking AMAZING white brocade-ish (can we call it that? or is it more like lace overlay?) situation over white tuxedo pants. Full Story

I love the look of a jacket dress and nothing else. If I had reason to, and breasts that could stand on their own like that, I would do the same. The problem here is the hair. She's grown up enough with the bare chest, she doesn't need to add another 20 years to herself with a middle-aged blow out and much, MUCH too much eye makeup. Full Story

Jada Pinkett-Smith looked really great walking around New York yesterday. I’m mostly referring to her clothes because I want my pants to fit like that. Her daughter, Willow, was also seen in NYC on Thursday (though they were not together) hopping around on some inspired footwear apparently on her way to visit with the Blue Ivy Carter. Full Story

Supposedly Nicole is pissed because they’ll be apart. The real reason?Nicole and Joel haven’t shown up on a red carpet together in over 6 months. Full Story
