Please enjoy these photos of Prince enjoying Rafael Nadal win in straight sets at the French Open today to advance to the quarterfinals. It takes real commitment to wear a turtleneck this time of year. And to perch on his signature tricked out cane like he’s the boss of everyone and they’re all there to play for him. Full Story

A video surfaced of Justin Bieber using the n-word this weekend in a candid moment that was recorded several years ago, when he was 15. TMZ claims that they had access to it four years ago but decided not to post it because he was so young back then and, according to them, had immediately expressed remorse. Full Story

Rihanna was photographed leaving an LA recording studio late last night/early this morning after a recording session. She’s still wearing that short hair f-ck you Charlie Sheen pink wig. Over in another part of town, Drake was having dinner in a super cheesy, shiny blue shirt. Coincidence or conspiracy? As much as I hope it’s a conspiracy, I’m sure it’s coincidence. Full Story

Pamela Anderson looked SO good with short hair. Did you see her in Cannes? It really, really worked for her. I’ve attached some shots of that below, after the mess of last night. Last night she showed up at the World Music Awards. And the extensions were back. Like 1987, metal band, Sunset Strip extensions. Full Story

Dear Gossips

"For me, it's not about a country or a province or old dilemmas or wars — that, my generation doesn't associate with or relate with anymore, by the way. It would just be an extraordinary message to the people my age and to my generation." – Xavier Dolan on what it would mean if his film Mommy won the Palme d’Or. (Source)

His generation. He’s 25 years old. It’s a noble aspiration. I just don’t know if he has much company. I mean, he’s made five films, and all of them have been accepted at Cannes, and this time, his first time in competition, they’re saying he has a good chance at taking it all. Unless, of course, they hold his age against him.  Read Full Intro

Adrien Brody and Justin Bieber were both at AMFAR in Cannes last night. The smarm, right? The smarm. I know your first inclination is to say that JB has to be bigger douche because he’s, well, he’s JB. And Adrien Brody won an Oscar. Really? Because Adrien Brody also wore this:  Full Story

Dear Gossips,

On April 17, when the Cannes Film Festival lineup was announced, here’s what I wrote on the blog intro that day:

“Xavier Dolan. Jesus. He’s only 25 years old. And it seems like every year Dolan has a film for the festival. So incredibly productive. Dolan’s latest, Mommy, is screening in competition this time, his first time. I miss his glasses. I wonder if he’ll ever bring them back.”

The Mommy premiere is tonight. But after screenings yesterday, and a rapturous reception that blew up Twitter, Dolan has now moved into top contention for the Palme D’Or perhaps going head to head with Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s Two Days, One Night starring Marion Cotillard.  Read Full Intro

Justin Bieber was at Roberto Cavalli’s party last night in Cannes. Coincidence? I mentioned them in the same post yesterday – click here for a refresher. He did not take his shirt off, at least not on the boat. He was there, however, because there were a lot of models invited, including Barbara Palvin. Full Story

I didn’t think it could get any sexier in Cannes than Roberto Cavalli on a Segway. Please appreciate: But then Justin Bieber came this year and decided he would take his shirt off as often as possible since Matthew McConaughey doesn’t do that anymore. Full Story

Dylan’s over in Cannes shooting footage for etalk with our host Tanya Kim. They’ve been sending back some great shots and interviews that will air on the show all week, including some inadvertent (?) gossip I thought you might enjoy. I suppose it’s all in the interpretation. So last night we aired our interview with Atom Egoyan who directed Ryan Reynolds in The Captive. Full Story

Leonardo DiCaprio has no official reason to be in Cannes. Actually that’s not true. His official reason for being in Cannes is To Party. Always. Because it never gets old for him. Year after year, the yachts, the cheesy Euro clubs, the dance beats, the spraying of champagne all over model tits, this never gets old. Full Story

As expected, Blake Lively accompanied husband to the Cannes premiere of The Captive on Friday night. When I saw her dress, what popped into my head was... Grace Of Monaco, the opening night film, starring Nicole Kidman. Blake was there too. She wore brown-ish wine-colour Gucci. Boring. But can you imagine if she'd chosen this one? I would have liked to see the look on Granny Freeze's face. Full Story

There are a lot of Canadians representing at Cannes this year. Ryan Reynolds arrived in Cannes today in advance of the premiere of The Captive, directed by another Canadian, Atom Egoyan. As you know, Reynolds’s wife, Blake Lively, has already been at the festival for a couple of days and walked the carpet at the opening gala last night in her role as ambassador for L’Oreal. Full Story

Lower! Justin Bieber went horseback riding yesterday. He had to take his shirt off.  Then, when he dismounted, he had to make sure his pants weren’t hitched up too high. High meaning normal, like, hip level. Hip level is too high. The pants must be low enough to see pube. Full Story
