As mentioned last week, The Notebook celebrated its 10th anniversary last week and Nick Cassavetes, the director, talked to VH1 about some of his memories from the film, providing great insight on the actors, particularly Ryan Gosling. What’s getting the most attention is Cassavetes’ anecdote about the chemistry between Gosling and Rachel McAdams. Full Story

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are back together. They were at a party the other day – click here to see – and, like, holding each other. Last night she threw a party at her place. According to TMZ Full Story

Dear Gossips,

You know what I noticed about Justin Bieber’s face in those photos he posted on Instagram with Chris Brown and Akon and the crew in studio yesterday? (Great new couple, by the way. That’s the man combination every girl deserves.) Something’s missing.

His douche face.

You know his douche face.

You know the “swaggy” face.

There’s no swaggy here. It’s just…Junior. He’s Junior J here, voluntarily. Junior J is so much more tolerable, non?

Yours in gossip,


PS. We are just 6 days from SMUT! And I can't wait to unload some gossip in your face. Teri Hart and I have a lot stored up.  Read Full Intro

Last night. The MuchMusic Video Awards. Toronto’s biggest block party, a massive spectacle, an annual tradition, and one of the few events outside New York and LA that draws some of the biggest names of the time. Lorde performed. Ariana Grande closed the show. Both videos are below. Did you know that after next week, Ariana Grande will be four years older than Lorde? Grande turns 21 on June 26. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Sorry about the late start. Was bitten by something last night, probably a spider, and had a bad reaction. The good news: Antihistamines really work.

Brange also works. I like waking up to new photos of them looking badass. It’s one of the best motivators of my job. Those were the first shots I saw when I checked my phone. The second?

“Our love is unconditional.”

No, not Brange. But Bieber about Selena, posted on Instagram and then deleted. Someone finds this romantic, you know. That’s the crazy about romance. It comes in every flavour. Like Twi-Hards thought it was awesome when the vampire broke into the teenage girl’s room and creeped on her sleeping. I have a friend who’s in love with a guy who will only see her in the middle of the night.  Read Full Intro

Still Dumb and Dumber

I don’t think I’ve ever laughed harder in a movie than I did when I first saw Dumb and Dumber. It was a perfect convergence of comedy: I was twelve, Jim Carrey was at the top of his game, and the Farrelly Brothers’ gross-out aesthetic was brand new. Dumb and Dumber felt less like a movie and more like a collection of related skits. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

More Justin Bieber saying racist sh-t videos have surfaced. He apologised the other day. He’s apologised again, telling the UK Sun that:

“Facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I've ever dealt with. But I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger. At the end of the day, I just need to step up and own what I did.”

Isn’t it so brave that he had to open his statement with how HARD IT IS FOR HIM???

JB is being shamed, as he should be, for behaving like a bigot f-ck. But you know who else should be shamed? The people who are laughing along with him, the people in his life who encouraged this in him. After all, he had to have learned from somewhere, from someone. Ignorance is contagious.  Read Full Intro

Oh I’ve been hoping for it for a long time. I’ve been rubbing my Gossip Genie desperately to make this happen. In 2010 I wished for it here. And since then every 6 months or so. When Rachel and Michael Sheen broke up I wished for it again here Full Story

Back to Zoe?

So Rihanna and Drake are not happening. Again. Just before they happened again though, Drake was spending a lot of time with Zoe Kravitz. Last night Zoe and her band Lolawolf played in Toronto at the Mod Club. Both Kate and Natalie emailed me about this. And Zoe recently Instagrammed a shot of Drake to her account: Meaning…? I know what you might think it means. Full Story

Gosling after Cannes

Ryan Gosling’s Lost River was not well received in Cannes. In fact, they sh-t on it. Hard. I noticed too that it was men who were particularly unkind. Which kinda made me laugh. Ryan Gosling. That Guy. The Pillow. The one the girls want to hear right before they fall asleep. Are they tired of Ryan Gosling? Of how women sound when Ryan Gosling comes up? Was Cannes a HAHAHAHAH moment for them? Like, Hey Girl, his movie sucks! “If a $200 haircut and $900 shades were given lots of money to defecate on Detroit, the result would be Ryan Gosling’s directing debut. Full Story

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

Racism by Justin Bieber

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
