How did Taylor Swift, the friend collector, lose Sam Smith to Katy Perry in the famous friend draft? Sam Smith is totally this season’s top draft pick and he’d go great alongside Taylor’s previous draft picks: Lorde, Lena Dunham, several models, and Ed Sheeran. I can’t figure out how she missed this one because Taylor’s recruitment team is the best in the business. Full Story

It was supposed to be a big deal weekend for Nicki Minaj. Instead what we saw was a mess. An unpolished, amateur mess. You heard about the snake, right? There was supposed to be a snake involved – like Britney – during the Anaconda performance but it ended up biting one of the dancers. Full Story

Did you feel like you were being force-fed Ariana Grande last night? Too much Ariana Grande. With her one side of the face and her one hairstyle. ONE hairstyle. And always with those high boots too. Is this child allowed to wear shoes that don’t go over her knee? I don’t understand. Full Story

There is nothing else. Nothing left. Nothing but Beyonce. You know, somehow JLO’s Slum Bear, Casper Smart, found a job choreographing for Nicki Minaj. That sh-t doesn’t feel shame but he should. Because everything else was a mess compared to what Beyonce delivered – her ENTIRE album, much of it reworked from On The Run for this, her MTV Video Vanguard moment, so that there could be no question about Who Is The Greatest? Now? It’s just Beyonce. Full Story
It’s MTV VMA weekend. Which is why everyone seems to be running a retrospective – the VMAs often deliver gossip that lasts the entire year. Look what happened with Miley in 2013. We talked about it for months. Lara sent me this look-back this morning – click here to see the slideshow. The last line made me laugh.
But I miss Britney.
I ALWAYS miss Britney this time of year.
Sarah was watching old Britney videos yesterday and couldn’t believe it. Someone tried to tell me recently that the Britney you see in Vegas now is back up to the standard of what Britney gave us at those old VMAs. That person is 23 years old. And then I realised…oh my God they don’t know. Read Full Intro
Wait, I thought the rumour was that Carrie Underwood was performing at halftime at the Super Bowl …? Instead the Wall Street Journal reported the other day that the NFL has invited Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Coldplay …but that if they want the gig, they have to pay the league for the opportunity. The artists’ reaction? A “chilly reception”.
I don’t like the NFL much these days. A two game suspension for Ray Rice – that’s it? TWO GAMES? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, google Ray Rice (after you’ve finished reading my post!) and tell me what you think of a two game suspension for what he did. Full Story

Rihanna and Drake met up at a club last night in New York. It’s the first time they’ve been out together publicly since they broke up (again) in April/May. Can they be “just” friends? It’s never worked out that way before. But it’s a good thing that they keep trying, right? Or is it a bad thing because the more they keep trying, it’s kinda like Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber? Or maybe it’s because she wants to see if she can get his “anaconda” up higher than Nicki Minaj. Full Story
HBO has released a trailer for the upcoming On The Run concert film that’s to be shot in Paris in September, then airing on HBO Canada and HBO on September 20. So if the Carter Corporation is dissolving, it won’t be until then. At least? We should have a better idea, or what we think is a better idea, in 6 days on Sunday, at the MTV VMAs.
Someone emailed to ask a very good question this weekend: Beyonce managed to lock down an entire album, 17 songs and videos, but how is it that EVERYONE seems to be talking sh-t and they can’t control those leaks?
Over the weekend she posted a photo of a set of open handcuffs. OMG IS IT A MESSAGE?
What does Beyonce hate the most? She hates it when other people are telling HER story. Will she let them be right? Because if she does this, if she walks away from Jay and her marriage, she makes them right. Read Full Intro
The internet is reporting that Beyonce and Rihanna might be collaborating on a remix of B’s song Blow. Apparently a track has been registered that has both their names on it. Click here to see. You believe? I believe that if it’s true, it’s another OBVIOUS IN YOUR FACE way for B to address some of those rumours. Full Story
I linked to this yesterday but we have to talk about it some more: JLO’s cover art for Booty. Because once you get past the main feature, IF you can get past the main feature…
There’s something you may have overlooked.
This is maybe the best ponytail I’ve ever seen in my life. The base is the perfect thickness – not too narrow, not too fat. It’s a blowout IN a ponytail. It’s gorgeous. It’s probably a hairpiece, or several, but still… fake or real or whatever, it’s a beauty. It’s perfect. Why can’t all ponytails be this perfect?
Well. There really is only JLO, non?
A SINGLE JLO has been the best JLO we’ve seen in a very, very long time.
