A reader called Poppie sent this to me today and I’m grateful that she’s introduced it to me. Because this combines two of my favourite things: ProActiv soda machines and pissing on Adam Levine. There’s a ProActiv soda machine in the mall at Hollywood & Highland where the Oscars happen every year. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Um. Excuse me. Did we know that Mimi is on Match.com! That totally deserves an interrobang. (Thanks Duana)

According to PEOPLE, Mimi collaborated with Match to premiere the video for Infinity, featuring Jussie Smollett. In the “In Her Own Words” section of her profile, she quotes her lyrics to Dreamlover. Under “Sports & Exercise” she lists swimming and yoga. Swimming?

Oh, you mean the time she got into the pool in a black floor length gown?

Also, she calls herself a “social drinker”. Right. Note also that one of the photos she’s using is of her pouring champagne in one of her dressing rooms (taken from a scene in the video which, obviously, is full of amazing).

Click here to view Mimi’s full profile. It’s a blessing. She’s blessed us. Again.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Eddie Redmayne has joined the Harry Potter family. It was confirmed yesterday that Eddie will play Newt Scamander in Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. The first film of the planned trilogy will be released November 2016 and is being written by JK Rowling herself. In case you didn’t know – and, um, why wouldn’t you, didn’t we ALL go to Hogwarts??? – these movies are prequels to the story we’ve practically memorised; Newt Scamander wrote the Fantastic Beasts textbook that Harry, Hermione, and Ron – but really only Hermione – studied at school. Full Story

There was a great article about Mimi over the weekend at The Daily Mail. Damion Young used to be Mimi’s best friend. He started off as her producer. Then he just became her +1 for everything. They’ve since fallen out. But now he’s giving interviews to tabloids about what life was like at her side. Full Story

Chris Pratt is about to start heavy press for Jurassic World. So he posted a pre-apology on Facebook in the event that he f-cks up during an interview. It’s wonderful. He is wonderful. Let’s read it together first:   (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d. Full Story

Tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of this: It’s still funny and crazy and everything. And its impact on the career of then the biggest movie star in the world is still a fascinating discussion. But Tom jumping on Oprah’s couch is more than just Classic Gossip. That moment has real historical significance. Full Story

If you hate Gwyneth Paltrow, and so many of you do (which I’ll never understand because what would gossip be with only Kate Middletons and no Gwyneth Paltrows?), this is your birthday. G appeared last night on the Red Nose Day special on NBC. She was supposed to be like some kind of action hero, jumping down from a helicopter, rolling onto the roof, and arriving on stage on a wire, strapped into a harness…. Full Story

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
