Yessss. This is how you do a sequel. You push so hard into the deep sequeliness of it that you go Malkovich on your own movie. I read once that sequels are whore’s movies. That is, you make the first one for the love of the story. You make the second one because the first one, surprisingly, made money. Full Story

I thought by now that I would be tired of it. Tired of Sia’s substitutes. But it actually keeps getting better. And now I wonder how it could possibly be better than Kristen Wiig’s performance last night. It’s her best acting of all time, like, ever. She was magnetic. I could not take my eyes off of her. Full Story

It’s a good song…although I find it repetitive which is probably why it needed her. Because did she ever take the Church to another level, holy F-CK, Annie Lennox. Holy F-CK. Who could possibly follow that? Is that why I’m listening to No More I Love Yous on repeat this morning? And then there was Prince. Full Story

After all these years, do you feel differently now about what Kanye West did to Taylor Swift at the VMAs? “Imma let you finish”? It’s still a dick move, yes. But would you change Gossip History and remove it from the Gossip Books? I’m not even sure Taylor would want that expunged from the archives. Full Story

They released the poster yesterday. And, well, I mean it’s about as subtle as a dick nudging you in the face. Channing Tatum is going to come, OK? Goddamn. Me too. Like, I was never into Magic Mike the first time. But…it’s this song… In the teaser trailer that’s now blowing up on Twitter. Full Story

A couple of weeks ago, I credited Gwyneth Paltrow in this post for making Johnny Depp more tolerable than he’s been in a while. I’ll do it again here re: their appearance together on Ellen today. The I Have/I Have Never game is great. Full Story

God it’s been a great week. We started at the Globes. Gwyneth was at the Globes. And then she stayed with us through the week, continuing to give us gold on Howard Stern and last night on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. What makes Gwyneth so great for gossip is that she will play. Full Story

Jacek and I used to go to Vegas at least once a year. It was much easier when we lived in Vancouver. Just a two hour flight. We’d stay long, by Vegas standards. Most people go to Vegas for 3 days, 4 tops. We’d stay 6 days and golf and gamble and eat. But even before we moved to Toronto I was kinda getting tired of it, probably because I don’t have that much holiday time and I want to use it to see new places. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

If you do nothing else today, please watch the 2 Chainz Nancy Grace interview. If you feel like sh-t and need a lift, please watch the 2 Chainz Nancy Grace interview. If it’s been a long time since you’ve felt the joy, please watch the 2 Chainz Nancy Grace interview.

If you like to laugh, please watch the 2 Chainz Nancy Grace interview.

I mean, on her own, Nancy Grace is batsh-t enough. But seeing that kind of insanity opposite 2 Chainz’s chill, hearing her say “Tity Boi”, and bring up his GPA like a rapper can’t be good at school, and the “Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!”…

It was one of the most beautiful moments in television history.

I mean we’re only 2 weeks into 2015 and already this is a great year in entertainment.  Read Full Intro

This interview is so f-cking good it requires two posts… And there was a gap in them posting the second part. It’s Gwyneth on Howard Stern, of course. And it picks up right after she reveals that JayZ and Beyonce are her best famous friends. Howard then leads her from there to her childhood and her early days in Hollywood. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow was on Howard Stern this morning. She’s promoting Mortdecai. She’s been promoting Mortdecai even though she doesn’t play Mortdecai. Johnny Depp plays Mortdecai. The movie comes out in a week and he’s basically been missing. So, you know, thanks Johnny Depp. Anyway, Howard Stern is tight with Jennifer Aniston. Full Story

Did you watch the first two episodes of Schitt’s Creek last night on CBC? If you missed it, they’re online here. For those of you who were able to see it… How spectacular is Catherine O’Hara as Moira Rose? O’Hara has always been underrated. Full Story
