Justin Bieber performed on a great looking stage last night. Adele loved it. She mentioned him, I think twice, during one of her many acceptance speeches. Come on. You’re still not ready to admit that you sing along to Love Yourself? And that Sorry makes you happy? JB won the BRIT Award last night for International Male Solo Artist. Full Story

There was a Page Six report earlier this week speculating that the real reason Rihanna bailed on the Grammys is because she saw the quality of the other performances and decided hers was sh-t and she was too embarrassed. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Celine Dion performed for the first time in Vegas last night since the passing of her husband, René Angélil, and she dedicated the show, and the rest of her life and career, really, to his memory. I say this with no snark whatsoever – I feel like Celine feels more and harder than anyone else.  Read Full Intro

Or is it 4.0? I can’t remember. But let’s come back to that in a minute. First, the videos. Two videos for Rihanna’s Work were released today. And I say this with full bias – because she came to Toronto to shoot at The Real Jerk, where I get an oxtail dinner takeout at least twice a month. Full Story

Over the weekend I emailed Lainey all excited about Maya Rudolph and Martin Short’s new variety show. Does this make me deeply uncool? Yes, but in a week being dominated by Taylor and Kanye’s mutual f-ckery, I’d like to take a break from all-cap tweets and haughty publicists to talk about two really talented people. Full Story

Also from the Saint Laurent event last night - Pamela Anderson with her sons Brandon and Dylan. Father, obviously, is Tommy Lee. How f-cking old am I that Pam's kids are, practically, proper adults? I was a first generation viewer of her sex tape! I'm saying this like someone in the 60s would say they went to Woodstock! Not only are they all grown now but one of them, Dylan, is also modelling for Saint Laurent. Full Story

It’s going to be a big weekend for Justin Bieber. Remember a few years ago how pissy he and Scooter Braun were about not being nominated for a Grammy? Well, JB’s performing at the Grammys. And he’s nominated for a Grammy. Maybe more. There are so many categories I can’t be bothered to check how many. Full Story

Deadpool opens on Friday. So does Zoolander 2. Promotion has been heavy on both movies. Ryan Reynolds, in particular, has been hustling like we’ve never seen him hustle. And without being gross about it. He’s doing his job and he looks like he’s having a great time doing his job. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds’s Deadpool opens on Friday. Reviews so far have been pretty good. As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago – click here for a refresher – I’m not sure he’s worked as hard at promotion as he has on this press tour. Full Story
