Justin Bieber played two shows in Toronto this week. I was at the first show on Wednesday. Whatever issues I’ve had with Bieber in the past, I can’t deny how great of an album Purpose is.

Rest assured: when you invite Jessica Chastain to a party, there will be dancing. ... lots and lots of dancing. This year, she danced in peacock blue Prada and finally broke out of her Jessica Rabbit Givenchy rut that Lainey finds herself begrudgingly writing about all too often Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Today is Princess Charlotte’s first birthday. The Cambridges have released four new photographs of her to celebrate the occasion. And, amazingly, Big G doesn’t make an appearance.

Prince Harry was in Toronto today to promote the Invictus Games 2017. He hung out with athletes and our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and they attended a hockey game.

So these photos of them being best friends and laughing together are probably going to explode a few of you. Full Story

I like Nina Dobrev so much. SO much. You are welcome to accuse me of bias. Nina, as Drake would say, is from The 6. We first met her on Degrassi. Duana used to write on Degrassi. Nina is kind, smart, generous, sweet. Full Story
