Dear Gossips,

Last week it was Vogue that turned 25 years old. And very, very soon? It’s almost 25 years to the day that Mimi shot the video for Vision Of Love. The song was then released a month later, in May. You shrug. But do you know the influence of Vision Of Love? Vision Of Love inspired an entire generation of singers and wannabe singers. Because while it was Whitney who was the master of melisma, Mimi took it to the people. Which is why The New Yorker once called Vision Of Love the “magna carta” of melisma. Think of what American Idol would look like without Vision Of Love. Or whether or not it would even exist.

I wonder if Mimi is already celebrating. Here she is, out for dinner last night, giving us some serious Vision Of Love hair, no extensions and no pieces.  Read Full Intro

Dear Gossips,

Zayn is always the one you worry about. He always seemed to be the most fragile. And he wears it on his body.

So this “stress leave”, over a few photos that showed up on social media, and the ensuing anxiety for both him and his fiancée…I believe it. I believe that the only chemical involved here is love, and thousands of years of poetry and prose would argue that it’s the most potent one. He’s just 22, after all. At 22, there is nothing you won’t throw away for love. What I love about this story is that it’s about a boy. Too often, this kind of emotional intensity – perceived as weakness by many – is associated with girls. And Taylor Swift.

That said, again, he’s 22. At 32 you look back and you say, f-ck, that was a LOT of unnecessary drama.  Read Full Intro

Iain, my friend and (unofficial) Madonna archivist, reminded me this morning… It’s the 25th anniversary of Madonna’s Vogue. 25 years ago today, Madonna released one of her most iconic songs. It’s a long list of iconic songs. But if you’re making a list of iconic Madonna songs, there’s NO argument about this one. Full Story

Madonna will wait for Justin Bieber

If Madonna thinks he’s hot, are you still giving me sh-t when I say I think he’s hot? Probably. But I’m telling you, if you just look at him and you don’t think about WHO HE IS, he’s hot. No? Fine. We will agree to disagree. Anyway, time for JB’s weekly appearance on Ellen. Full Story

The only combination

This must be how some people feel about Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt. It was certainly how I felt about Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow. That I could never see him with anyone else…until Angelina Jolie happened. And now, with Brange, there is no other combination. Which is kinda how I feel about Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz who stepped out together in Hollywood the other day. Full Story

I tried to go to the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art a few years ago. It was a summer. A really hot day. I was in New York for a junket, and after working the previous night and the next morning, and not really eating that much, and being on my period, I decided I’d walk in the heat to the museum on my own and see the pieces. Full Story

Like many of you, I was waiting all week for this. Some of you wondered about the Gwyneth question, whether or not Howard would go there. As I told my friend (and top Madonna scholar) Iain, Howard didn’t ask G about M, so there was no way he was going to ask M about G. M is way bigger than G. Full Story

Deadline is reporting that Peter Berg will direct an upcoming feature documentary on Rihanna. They know each other from Battleship, and we know Peter from Friday Night Lights (and more). Friday Night Rihanna, oh my God. Rihanna, for me, is the pop star of her generation but she also embodies a certain free-spiritedness that is extremely rare in today’s celebrity landscape. Full Story

Selena Gomez was in Paris today for the Louis Vuitton presentation. Last night the new video for her song with Zedd, I Want You To Know, was released online. She’s dancing. She’s sweating. She changes multiple times. To me it looks like an advertisement for GUESS by Marciano. These are the cheesiest clothes. Full Story

No, really, isn’t she? She’s my favourite. I can’t be neutral on Kelly Clarkson. All I can do is go positive, ultra-positive, all the time. Because she’s SO lovely, SO nice, SO fun. And it’s real. You can tell when it’s not real. On our talk show here in Canada, The Social Full Story

Madonna looked great last night in London, seen here leaving her party at a private members club. She’s always had the most beautiful eyes. So about that fall at the BRITs, she was on Jonathan Ross yesterday talking about the performance. When he wanted to replay it for her, she refused to watch. Full Story

Blank Space not Style. She’s sticking with the big hit and I understand this, but I just love Style so much and I kind of wanted a tease for what it might look like on tour. And that’s maybe another reason why she stayed with Blank Space. Because you don’t want to give away too much before she kicks that off. Full Story

It’s been 20 years since Madonna last performed at the BRIT Awards. So there was a lot of buildup ahead of her performance. By now I’m sure you’ve heard that she fell. She couldn’t get her cloak untied in time and the dancers pulled and she went over and God, that looked dangerous. Full Story

Taylor Swift was in London last night with all her model friends and musician friends and lots of friends, friends everywhere. It was the ELLE Style Awards. And, can you believe it, she’s not wearing Elie Saab. Or shorts. This might be the best dress I’ve seen her wear on a carpet in a long time. Full Story
