What’s missing from Rihanna lately, have you noticed? In her videos, on her Instagram, on Twitter, on HER, around her… What is it? MEN. Instead, Rihanna is surrounded by her best friend, Melissa, a steady crew of girls, and she’s doing it for them, for herself. When she’s dancing on a pole, it’s not for an audience of dudes. Full Story

Volvo released a video last week to demonstrate the stability of their steering system. They claim that there was no CGI involved in having Jean Claude Van Damme straddle-split two trucks driving backwards. I’ve attached the clip below. Channing Tatum, who’s currently working on 22 Jump Street, attempted the same feat. Full Story

Like the guy who brings a stick of butter to nuclear weapon fight, Harry Connick Jr. is now trying to throw down with Mariah Carey and failing hard. In case you missed it, the backstory is that Mariah was on Hot 97 the other day and said that working on Idol was “hell”, which is very believable and the most interesting thing anyone who works for American Idol has said since 1962. Full Story

Yesterday was one of those days when everything just piled up. I was overly busy and felt like I wasn’t getting stuff done and just spinning my wheels, mostly due to a lot of family visiting at once. Which, of course, makes you feel like you’re a teenager again, and very much not in the good way. Full Story

Maybe it’s because I’ve been listening to the words “eat pussy” come out of Rob Ford’s mouth all morning but suddenly everything seems brighter, nicer, easier to look at. Seth Meyers is apparently strongly considering making it a sketch on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Full Story

I am usually all over it whenever there are pictures of My Obsession, Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. They were at the GQ Men of the Year party on Tuesday night. But I can only find one photo. Which is why it got buried in the photo set. What is wrong with these event photographers? The Taylor-Johnsons are good for more than one f-cking shot. Full Story

And she’s talking about it. She’s talking a lot of sh-t about it. God bless her, you know? God. Bless. Her. Mimi was interviewed on the radio and asked about her Idol experience. She was candid: it was hell for her. And Nicki Minaj was Satan. But what makes this so entertaining is not that she’s still picking a fight but why she was so unhappy to begin with. Full Story

Thespian drama! How British is this sh*t? Today news has broken that Emma Thompson has forgiven Helena Bonham-Carter for having an affair with Kenneth Branagh. The story goes that back in the ‘90s these three were involved in the most English love triangle since crumpets, marmalade and tea, with Helena and Kenneth boning on the set of Frankenstein, effectively destroying his 6 year marriage to Emma. Full Story

Here’s Emma Thompson at her hand and footprint ceremony at the Chinese theatre in Hollywood. As you know, this one knows how to put on a show. Because, as she’s said, as she’s declared emphatically, is that she is an entertainer, and that it’s her job, her obligation to ENTERTAIN. Full Story

Have I mentioned how much I love her? Maybe not. I’m sorry. I f-cking LOVE Annie Lennox. No More I Love Yous is one my favourite songs forever. Annie was at the Music Industry Trust Awards in London last night. With her two daughters Lola and Tali. This is tripping me out. Annie Lennox, to me, is always going to be 30 years old. Full Story

Julia Roberts turned 46 on Monday. She was papped going to yoga yesterday. Have you noticed Julia’s been getting papped more lately? Not a lot. Not too much. But she could go months without being shot and now, now it’s slowwwwwwwly building up in frequency. Coincidence or conspiracy? When’s the last time you watched this clip? It’s actually been a while for me. Full Story

This is the cover art for Mariah Carey’s new single The Art of Letting Go. And here’s Mimi this weekend at the BET event. If only we could all be invited to watch a Mimi photo shoot. Photo shoots take a lot of time as it is. They’re constantly messing around with the light, futzing around with the angles, a photo shoot is tedious. Full Story
