This song is a mess. I don’t even know what it actually sounds like. And they didn’t even have to sing live. But the music wasn’t the point. The point was her embellished tights. Also, Pitbull’s pants. Brazilian recording artist Claudia Leitte’s all like, hey what about me? Please. Full Story

It’s the name of a Coldplay song off the album Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends. The first time I heard it I thought of Steve Winwood. But perspective is a gift. Because I’d rather listen to Lovers In Japan than the embarrassingly sh-tty Magic or A Sky Full Of Stars. Anyway, Chris Martin arrived in Tokyo yesterday. Full Story

You ready? The FIFA World Cup starts tomorrow. This is why no one in Europe will be going to the movies for an entire month. This is why Laura, our supervising producer on The Social will be screaming at the television for an entire month (or less – ha!). Full Story

JLO performed at home in the Bronx last night. There were many costume changes, including an outfit that was an homage to her infamous Grammys Versace dress. We just talked about JLO on The Social today. My colleague Cynthia Loyst, a trained belly dancer, posited that JLO isn’t an amazing dancer. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow spent Memorial Day in California this year, seen here at the Brentwood Country Mart in a cute blue top over shorts. I don’t know where to buy her outfit. But maybe a publicist will blast out that information using these pap shots and link to her site, like last time. Full Story

Arcade Fire & Andrew Garfield: We Exist

The video for Arcade Fire’s We Exist has now been released starring Andrew Garfield in what may be one of the finest performances of his career. To me, it’s what he’s saying to me as he’s dancing. Dancing by himself. Like totally …abandoned. Completely unselfconsciously. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Everything Almost.

It’s Jann Arden’s new album, released today. I’ve had the honour of working with Jann the last few weeks and knowing her the last few months on The Social. There never was a more generous, honest, crazy kind, and hilarious artist…friend…person.

Jann actually IS Everything. Just Everything.

She will never, ever make you feel sh-tty or regretful for supporting her. She will never let you down. Too often entertainers let us down. Jann’s one of the very, very few who you’ll stay in love with, like, forever. You will love her the most. And she’ll never make you change your mind. The new song is below.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

This is what I always say about Avril Lavigne: her fan base never grows with her. So she has to keep going back to mining from the 14 and under demo. That’s the only age range that will appreciate –if that’s the word – her new video for the song Hello Kitty, which actually includes this line: “Like a fat kid on a pack of Smarties. Full Story

Are dating. Apparently they were all about each other at Coachella. I feel like this is a pattern. She breaks up. She hooks up. At Coachella. In 2012 there was a musician. F-ck, what was his name. Hang on, I have to Google. Got it. Robert Ackroyd. Florence + The Machine. You remember? Click here Full Story

Miley’s allergic reaction

Lainey Posted by Lainey

Miley Cyrus has had to cancel two shows this week because she’s been hospitalised with an “allergic reaction” which some people are comparing to Lindsay Lohan’s “exhaustion”. I don’t blame you. We’ve been conditioned over the last decade when it comes to young celebrities to be skeptical of their excuses. Full Story

Page Six is reporting exclusively that Beyonce and Jay-Z will tour together this summer: 20 cities in the US starting in June and they may do the Fourth of July in New York. Because it’s New York and “4” is their favourite number. Full Story

Rihanna celebrated her best friend Melissa Ford’s birthday this weekend. There was a dinner. And Drake was there too. Good sign? They’re comfortable together in their own circles. You want your lover to be ok with your homies, right? I don’t know if that used to matter to Rihanna. Full Story

Coldplay’s Magic video: Coincidence or conspiracy

Coldplay’s new album Ghost Music drops in May. The video for Magic was released yesterday. I’ve already told you how I feel about the song. Click here for a refresher. It’s TERRIBLE. But while everyone else initially thought those lyrics were for Gwyneth, I wondered if they were meant for someone else. Full Story
