Mimi kicked off her Vegas residency last night. And look at the stage… BUTTERFLY WINGS. Our butterfly comes flying out of butterfly wings! Well… “Flying” might not be the right word. Our butterfly doesn’t actually fly. Instead, our butterfly, according to the New York Times review of the show, is “wheeled” out, several times. Full Story

I know that I always start articles all “go watch this then come back”. And I also know that sometimes there’s just not time. I do it too. Sometimes I just read the article about the thing instead of watching the thing. But if you don’t watch this episode of Amy Schumer, you will have missed out on a seminal moment in entertainment. Full Story

The Billboard Latin Music Awards happened last night. And everyone’s talking about Jennifer Lopez’s amazing tribute to Selena. It was JLO y Los Dinos. It was a medley. And it was spectacular. I’ve mentioned several times how much I loved that movie. How many times I’ve seen it. Full Story

As in Turner and Jackson. Together in one post! Ms Turner and Ms Jackson are both in Milan for Giorgio Armani’s 40th anniversary. Both have been seen around town shopping the last few days. And both attended a private dinner last night for the designer. Check it out – a rare sighting of Janet holding hands with her billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana who runs a fashion conglomerate and, basically, owns Armani in the Middle East. Full Story

Robin Leach, yes, that Robin Leach, of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, interviewed Mimi yesterday ahead of her Vegas debut. This will be the best 8 minutes of your life, the video below. First of all, he makes her stand the entire time. STAND! For 8 minutes! And she doesn’t fall over! I need to know if there were 3 people underneath her holding her upright. Full Story

In a pink ride. In a tricked out dress. And all kinds of curves. That, um, don’t match the curves on the official billboard. The billboard is how Mimi sees herself. It’s like seeing Mimi through Mimi’s eyes. Fascinating. Come on. If this isn’t getting you through your sh-tty Tuesday, my question to you is how you define Happiness. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Duana referred to it yesterday in her name post – click here for a refresher. That would be Gaius Charles, who played Smash Williams. Smash who?

Friday Night Lights. You know, that show we’ve been nagging you to watch for almost 10 years? And then when you finally do, you email us all like, “OMG, Duana and Lainey, you were RIGHT!”

If you know Friday Night Lights, Amy Schumer’s sketch would have been even funnier. You wouldn’t appreciate Tami Taylor’s walk-away hand dancing. You wouldn’t recognise Josh Charles’s puckered Coach Taylor mouth. But the real Tami Taylor did:

Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer were in Vegas earlier this week at CinemaCon to promote The Man From U.N.C.L.E. It comes out in August. And as I mentioned earlier this week, neither star has much heat right now so the marketing team for the movie has to get on it, soon. Cavill in particular, given that he's Superman, really needs this. Full Story

Did not or could not? Russell Crowe is currently promoting his directorial debut The Water Diviner. He’s been extra generous with gossip during this press tour. I’m obsessed with the one about Michael Jackson prank calling him. You heard about this? Michael would just ring up Russell’s hotel room and start asking to speak to Mr Wall. Full Story

Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe will be in Cannes. Gus Van Sant’s Sea Of Trees will be screened in competition at the festival. Gus Van Sant + McConaughey? I’m definitely intrigued. The Croisette is going to lose its mind with the return of McConaughey, now an Oscar winner, to the Palais. Full Story

Sometimes the world gives and gives, and when you think ‘oh no world, this is too much’, the world gives you more.  Anna Kendrick will release a series of ‘autobiographical humourous essays’ in the fall of 2016. I love this for three reasons. Number one, I think they will be great. Full Story

Interestingly enough, Rick Rubin was spotted arriving at the twigs performance. What would (or will) that look like? A twigs-Rubin collaboration? Twigs is scheduled to be at Coachella again this weekend. Full Story

As you know, we have a lot of love for Shonda Rhimes here. Normally it’s Duana who gets to hog on loving Shonda. But she’s busy today. So I’m stealing this one from her and it’s big. Last night Shonda was named to the National Association of Broadcasting Hall Of Fame. And it’s not like I have to explain why but I will anyway: what would ABC be with Shondaland? There would be no TGIT. Full Story
