Would love to know how it works when it comes to wedding photo negotiations. Like does George Clooney tell PEOPLE and HELLO! that "I won't take anything less than what Brad got"? Or does he say "If you give me x percent more, I'll give you x percent more - more photos, more quotes, more access"?
And is there a photo checklist from the publication that has to be satisfied? Like do PEOPLE and HELLO! specify that they want:
- The Dress, front and back
- The Cake
- Bride and Groom together, must be touching
- $100k bonus if you give us a kiss
- $100k bonus if you give us a photo of celebrity guests
- at least one group family shot
- at least one sappy quote
Who has the power here? The seller or the buyer? The buyer ended up getting shafted for the Timberlake wedding when all the pictures came back low quality and not all that impressive. Read Full Intro
Today in Paris at the Paris Saint-Germain F.C. vs Barcelona F.C. football match. Sitting together. Hanging together. Laughing together. Unfortunately no Posh. The last I saw Posh was back in London at her flagship which isn't even a week old. Maybe David's inviting Beyonce and JayZ to come check it out. Full Story

I left Leonardo DiCaprio’s name off the list yesterday when I posted about Tom Cruise being the single guy standing after George Clooney’s wedding…and how unexpected that was. Click here for a refresher. Here’s Leo in LA yesterday walking around with some friends and that beard that takes 6 months to grow. Full Story
Also Oscar de la Renta. The paps were able to get a shot of Amal Alamuddin during the reception but after the ceremony and, as you can see, it’s silver with some fringe and, frankly, I like it a lot better than that snore she ended up choosing. But VOGUE is blowing it all up with an exclusive behind-the-scenes fitting feature with her that they posted today. Full Story

Normally I’d post this in LifeStyle but Chanel’s always a spectacle and every other runway has been cockblocked by Amal Alamuddin so Karl had to do something extra, as he does. The clothes were secondary to the messages. A rally. A protest rally. And that becomes fashion. Full Story
Jeremy Renner’s new movie, Kill The Messenger, opens on October 10 (against RDJ’s The Judge—do you think they’re giving each other a hard time about box office competition?), and as such Renner is giving us the hard shill. Kill The Messenger is opening in a crowded October dominated by a lot of flashy titles like Gone Girl and Fury, so he’s got to hustle to draw attention to his movie. Full Story

A quick programming note: there was a major delay on the subway this morning and I had that appointment at the eye clinic (I’m a good candidate for laser eye surgery) and so I’m just trying to catch up between preparing for The Social which goes live in a couple of hours. Going to hit you up with a few quick posts and photos and then focus on heavier analysis – including George Clooney’s wedding details – later on this afternoon. Full Story
His attraction for her is understandable. Her attraction for him? Not all that clear, really. Unless size really does matter? For me, no. Size can be uncomfortable. For her, clearly a selling feature. Because she's been going around telling her friends about it. And her nickname for him, which she hasn't been shy about sharing, is "Monster Cock". Full Story

George Clooney’s wedding ended up being more of a spectacle than Beyonce’s and Beyonce is the queen of spectacle. Things you thought you’d never say…
Things that happened in 2014:
George Clooney got married.
Brad Pitt got married.
Kanye West got married.
When we check back with all three in five years, what will be the update? God I wish I had a time machine. If I had a time machine I’d check in with them in 2019 and I’d also fast forward to two weeks from now because I’m a chicken sh-t.
There’s a mole I’ve had on my upper lip, right where the bows meet. Over the last couple of years, a cyst has grown under it. And it won’t stop growing. I’m attaching a picture. From some angles, it looks like a pimple. Read Full Intro
