There's a war going on between Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and George Clooney. It started at the Golden Globes. One of their best jokes was about Clooney and Gravity -- how he'd rather float off into space and die than talk to a woman his own age. The entire ballroom erupted. They loved it. And George took it well. Full Story

Sarah was really pissy at the news that they’re thinking of doing a Point Break remake starring Gerard Butler – click here for a refresher. But what if it was Tom Hiddleston playing Bodhi? Sarah’s got a lot of time for Tom Hiddleston. Full Story

Sasha sent this to me with the question: Should we invite Vin Diesel to join our hip hop dance crew? I need you to watch this for me. The whole thing. I need you to watch this for yourself. It’s a video that Vin Diesel uploaded to his Facebook. There are so many questions. Like: As Sasha asked – why would any human being post this for any other human being to see? And me – especially a famous one!? Also: Does he think he’s the sh-t? Or is he just goofing? Why is there so much tongue? Who’s supposed to be wanting his tongue? Why doesn’t he know the words? Don’t you think he should know the words? What is he thinking about when he goes into the corner and puts his hands in his pocket? Do you actually know anyone who’s seen Riddick? Does he have any friends? I can’t do anything else today. Full Story

Rachel McAdams is in LA, walking a dog with her sister. Her dog? Not sure. Possible. You can easily travel a chihuahua. It's -20 in Toronto today and there's no windchill. So, if I were her, I'd probably stay a few days in gross LA too, just until this polar vortex passes. Then again, there's a lot of action happening here in Toronto right now. Full Story

There were a lot of winners at the Globes the other night. But, if you read the full column yesterday, you know that in my mind, one person stood triumphant over them all. That would be Bradley Cooper’s mother. Click here for a refresher. In her jacket and sunglasses, which she kept on even during the telecast, that woman stole my heart and I’ll never get it back. Full Story

Anyone can be replaced. Anyone? ANYONE? Maybe at some point, sure. But there’s a reason Marvel agreed on a big payout for RDJ to come as Tony Stark Iron Man. It’s because right now, he’s the only one the people want. The people decided he was the best yesterday. And he rewarded them with…well…himself in return. Full Story

Lately at award shows, Julia Roberts has been heading to the podium barefoot. At the Palm Springs Film Festival however, where she presented to her friend Tom Hanks, she kept them on. Maybe she thought those old ass Academy voters who live there would not have been impressed. Julia was with Tom Hanks that year at the Golden Globes, you remember?, when she gave us “WHO’s NATALIE???” But she also caught up with her buddy Bradley Cooper. Full Story

The numbers were just released late morning -- over 800,000 albums sold in just 3 days. Beyonce set some records. Don't ask me what records. Some kind of record. 3 days! With no promotion! Did you? I did, obviously. And happily. You know why? Value. It's not just the songs, it's also the videos. Full Story

Two of our favourite women

Let’s start with Amy Poehler. I love that Amy Poehler isn’t too big to still be doing sh-t like this – running around NYC in a goofy costume crashing into people with a camera and singing Christmas carols all while generally being funny and awesome and spontaneous. She’s the BEST. Full Story

How does she keep her sh-t so tight? 14 new songs, 17 new videos – an entire “visual” album… and not one f-cking leak. Nothing. No press, no hype, no previews, no Justin Timberlake teasers to teasers to trailers… Just Beyonce by Beyonce. And why? Because Beyonce LOVES a mic drop. Full Story

I had the best morning today. Because I spent a few minutes at Mimi’s house. It’s early. And you know the Mimi schedule, right? Mimi doesn’t do mornings. If she has to do the morning, it’s a f-cking production. So, why not bring the production to her, so that she doesn’t actually have to leave her own home?  Welllll… Then you have to interview Mimi in her negligee. Full Story

Macaulay Culkin is in a band. According to Page Six they call themselves The Pizza Underground and all their songs are about pizza. I’m not quite sure whether or not this is for serious or if they’re f-cking around. But here’s what they sound like: The Pizza Underground Demo by The Pizza Underground Full Story

Here she is, our favourite Christmas tree – without the green. This is quickly becoming one of my favourite holiday traditions: Mimi performing at Rockefeller Centre to celebrate the Christmas tree lighting. Like all wonderful traditions, familiarity is important. For Mimi’s holiday tradition, we come to expect the following: -Multiple costume changes featuring dresses that are too small, but only of the red, white, or gold variety -The same songs over and over again -Fur and diamonds -Her tits are the ornaments Aren’t you in the mood for Christmas now? Full Story
