In the latest installment of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke, Justin Bieber comes along for the ride. No, nothing will ever be better than Mimi glittering all over James’s vehicle as he plays hit after hit – HER  hits, obviously – but this interview format, side by side, with music, driving around Los Angeles, is really effective. Full Story

Mimi was at Disneyland yesterday. And I'm at Disneyland right now. I f-cking missed her! My flight didn't get in in time. And you know what I could have seen? I could have seen Mimi riding Dumbo. Look at this picture. Look at her joy. Look at her flying around in circles on an elephant at the happiest place in the world. Full Story

THIS. This is why Harry was voted the Most Popular Royal last year ahead of even his granny, the Queen. And this is what sets him apart from his brother and his sister-in-law…who’ve either forgotten spontaneity or have been asked to bury it in themselves. Because wherever Harry goes, despite the fact that Vegas is well behind him now, you never know when he’ll take it off-script. Full Story

Julia Roberts always gets the last word, so it makes sense that she would get David Letterman’s last kiss before next Wednesday’s big sign-off. After all, she is his favourite guest. He admitted it back in 2001 and he was clearly just as smitten last night. Full Story

Amy Lake Blively… Paltrow

For four weeks in a row now, Amy Schumer has been making some observations. Last night her observations focused on the late night talk show. How the host pervs out on the female guest. And how the female guest, well, behaves like Blake Lively with a double leg of Gwyneth Paltrow. If the character name, “Amy Lake Blively”, wasn’t obvious enough for you, Amy throws in a “Preserve” namecheck too. Full Story

Prince Harry continues to charm New Zealand. With cupcakes! And haka! Hot Harry performed with the New Zealand Defence Force today and, bless him, he tried. He tried to release. He really did try to exorcise the repressed white guy and unleash the warrior inside. I can’t stop watching this. I can’t stop reading his eyes, the self-consciousness, and the endearing effort he’s making to be one with the team while wondering whether or not, if he contorts his face too expressively, the photos are going to irritate his grandmother. Full Story

Mimi kicked off her Vegas residency last night. And look at the stage… BUTTERFLY WINGS. Our butterfly comes flying out of butterfly wings! Well… “Flying” might not be the right word. Our butterfly doesn’t actually fly. Instead, our butterfly, according to the New York Times review of the show, is “wheeled” out, several times. Full Story

Amy Schumer, 12 Angry Men, and Reasonable Chub

I know that I always start articles all “go watch this then come back”. And I also know that sometimes there’s just not time. I do it too. Sometimes I just read the article about the thing instead of watching the thing. But if you don’t watch this episode of Amy Schumer, you will have missed out on a seminal moment in entertainment. Full Story

The Billboard Latin Music Awards happened last night. And everyone’s talking about Jennifer Lopez’s amazing tribute to Selena. It was JLO y Los Dinos. It was a medley. And it was spectacular. I’ve mentioned several times how much I loved that movie. How many times I’ve seen it. Full Story

As in Turner and Jackson. Together in one post! Ms Turner and Ms Jackson are both in Milan for Giorgio Armani’s 40th anniversary. Both have been seen around town shopping the last few days. And both attended a private dinner last night for the designer. Check it out – a rare sighting of Janet holding hands with her billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana who runs a fashion conglomerate and, basically, owns Armani in the Middle East. Full Story

Robin Leach, yes, that Robin Leach, of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, interviewed Mimi yesterday ahead of her Vegas debut. This will be the best 8 minutes of your life, the video below. First of all, he makes her stand the entire time. STAND! For 8 minutes! And she doesn’t fall over! I need to know if there were 3 people underneath her holding her upright. Full Story

In a pink ride. In a tricked out dress. And all kinds of curves. That, um, don’t match the curves on the official billboard. The billboard is how Mimi sees herself. It’s like seeing Mimi through Mimi’s eyes. Fascinating. Come on. If this isn’t getting you through your sh-tty Tuesday, my question to you is how you define Happiness. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Duana referred to it yesterday in her name post – click here for a refresher. That would be Gaius Charles, who played Smash Williams. Smash who?

Friday Night Lights. You know, that show we’ve been nagging you to watch for almost 10 years? And then when you finally do, you email us all like, “OMG, Duana and Lainey, you were RIGHT!”

If you know Friday Night Lights, Amy Schumer’s sketch would have been even funnier. You wouldn’t appreciate Tami Taylor’s walk-away hand dancing. You wouldn’t recognise Josh Charles’s puckered Coach Taylor mouth. But the real Tami Taylor did:


The nameless Superman

Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer were in Vegas earlier this week at CinemaCon to promote The Man From U.N.C.L.E. It comes out in August. And as I mentioned earlier this week, neither star has much heat right now so the marketing team for the movie has to get on it, soon. Cavill in particular, given that he's Superman, really needs this. Full Story
