Still Dumb and Dumber

I don’t think I’ve ever laughed harder in a movie than I did when I first saw Dumb and Dumber. It was a perfect convergence of comedy: I was twelve, Jim Carrey was at the top of his game, and the Farrelly Brothers’ gross-out aesthetic was brand new. Dumb and Dumber felt less like a movie and more like a collection of related skits. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

More Justin Bieber saying racist sh-t videos have surfaced. He apologised the other day. He’s apologised again, telling the UK Sun that:

“Facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I've ever dealt with. But I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger. At the end of the day, I just need to step up and own what I did.”

Isn’t it so brave that he had to open his statement with how HARD IT IS FOR HIM???

JB is being shamed, as he should be, for behaving like a bigot f-ck. But you know who else should be shamed? The people who are laughing along with him, the people in his life who encouraged this in him. After all, he had to have learned from somewhere, from someone. Ignorance is contagious.  Read Full Intro

Oh I’ve been hoping for it for a long time. I’ve been rubbing my Gossip Genie desperately to make this happen. In 2010 I wished for it here. And since then every 6 months or so. When Rachel and Michael Sheen broke up I wished for it again here Full Story

So Rihanna and Drake are not happening. Again. Just before they happened again though, Drake was spending a lot of time with Zoe Kravitz. Last night Zoe and her band Lolawolf played in Toronto at the Mod Club. Both Kate and Natalie emailed me about this. And Zoe recently Instagrammed a shot of Drake to her account: Meaning…? I know what you might think it means. Full Story

Ryan Gosling’s Lost River was not well received in Cannes. In fact, they sh-t on it. Hard. I noticed too that it was men who were particularly unkind. Which kinda made me laugh. Ryan Gosling. That Guy. The Pillow. The one the girls want to hear right before they fall asleep. Are they tired of Ryan Gosling? Of how women sound when Ryan Gosling comes up? Was Cannes a HAHAHAHAH moment for them? Like, Hey Girl, his movie sucks! “If a $200 haircut and $900 shades were given lots of money to defecate on Detroit, the result would be Ryan Gosling’s directing debut. Full Story

Please enjoy these photos of Prince enjoying Rafael Nadal win in straight sets at the French Open today to advance to the quarterfinals. It takes real commitment to wear a turtleneck this time of year. And to perch on his signature tricked out cane like he’s the boss of everyone and they’re all there to play for him. Full Story

A video surfaced of Justin Bieber using the n-word this weekend in a candid moment that was recorded several years ago, when he was 15. TMZ claims that they had access to it four years ago but decided not to post it because he was so young back then and, according to them, had immediately expressed remorse. Full Story

Rihanna was photographed leaving an LA recording studio late last night/early this morning after a recording session. She’s still wearing that short hair f-ck you Charlie Sheen pink wig. Over in another part of town, Drake was having dinner in a super cheesy, shiny blue shirt. Coincidence or conspiracy? As much as I hope it’s a conspiracy, I’m sure it’s coincidence. Full Story

Pamela Anderson looked SO good with short hair. Did you see her in Cannes? It really, really worked for her. I’ve attached some shots of that below, after the mess of last night. Last night she showed up at the World Music Awards. And the extensions were back. Like 1987, metal band, Sunset Strip extensions. Full Story

Dear Gossips

"For me, it's not about a country or a province or old dilemmas or wars — that, my generation doesn't associate with or relate with anymore, by the way. It would just be an extraordinary message to the people my age and to my generation." – Xavier Dolan on what it would mean if his film Mommy won the Palme d’Or. (Source)

His generation. He’s 25 years old. It’s a noble aspiration. I just don’t know if he has much company. I mean, he’s made five films, and all of them have been accepted at Cannes, and this time, his first time in competition, they’re saying he has a good chance at taking it all. Unless, of course, they hold his age against him.  Read Full Intro

Adrien Brody and Justin Bieber were both at AMFAR in Cannes last night. The smarm, right? The smarm. I know your first inclination is to say that JB has to be bigger douche because he’s, well, he’s JB. And Adrien Brody won an Oscar. Really? Because Adrien Brody also wore this:  Full Story

Dear Gossips,

On April 17, when the Cannes Film Festival lineup was announced, here’s what I wrote on the blog intro that day:

“Xavier Dolan. Jesus. He’s only 25 years old. And it seems like every year Dolan has a film for the festival. So incredibly productive. Dolan’s latest, Mommy, is screening in competition this time, his first time. I miss his glasses. I wonder if he’ll ever bring them back.”

The Mommy premiere is tonight. But after screenings yesterday, and a rapturous reception that blew up Twitter, Dolan has now moved into top contention for the Palme D’Or perhaps going head to head with Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s Two Days, One Night starring Marion Cotillard.  Read Full Intro

Justin Bieber was at Roberto Cavalli’s party last night in Cannes. Coincidence? I mentioned them in the same post yesterday – click here for a refresher. He did not take his shirt off, at least not on the boat. He was there, however, because there were a lot of models invited, including Barbara Palvin. Full Story

I didn’t think it could get any sexier in Cannes than Roberto Cavalli on a Segway. Please appreciate: But then Justin Bieber came this year and decided he would take his shirt off as often as possible since Matthew McConaughey doesn’t do that anymore. Full Story
