I have a bottle of the Chateau Miraval rose at home in the cupboard. Did it just go up in value today? Who does it better? They do it the best. No, SHE does it the best. It’s been a year of platinum game for Angelina Jolie. And she just won’t stop. Her level of control and strategy, precise execution and delivery is…God…it fills me with such joy, such appreciation. Full Story

TMZ reports that Katie Holmes bought an almost $4 million home in Calabasas, California and it sounds like they’ve already moved in. Supposedly Katie thought it would be better for Suri to live there instead of growing up in New York. Because there are children on the same block or something. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

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”.

One of the arguments against this proposal is that it would essentially turn the halftime show into a giant commercial.  Read Full Intro

So it was Gwyneth Paltrow’s turn to accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge yesterday. And this is exactly what I mean about those on the top tier participating – because it’s their return nominations that continue to make it interesting. The Zac Efrons and the Ashley Bensons of the world can keep going around in their own circles all they want. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

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

As Sarah just wrote in the Chris Evans article before this, it’s time to solicit favour with the awards boards now. And, well, they say it’s never hard to solicit favour with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. They nominated The Tourist and Jennifer Love Hewitt for Christ’s sake. Full Story

It’s Friday, it’s been a pretty sh*tty week all around, and we could all use something nice to look at as we zone out for the weekend. So here are new photos of Beardy Chris Evans, making his return after Avengers: Age of Ultron has wrapped. I don’t generally do facial hair, but Evans is one of those guys who somehow manages to be even better looking with a beard. Full Story
