There was a video circulating on YouTube this week taken from one of the backstage cameras at the VMAs. Taylor Swift is walking down the hall with her security team and her publicists/assistants. Whoever uploaded the clip was alleging that Taylor was doing coke. Which, obviously, would be some crazy ass gossip except that if you actually take the time to look at the video, it’s even more obvious that she’s just blowing her nose. Full Story

Sienna Miller wore a bikini to seduce Johnny Depp for NOTHING. That’s the first thought I had when Black Mass director Scott Cooper confirmed her role in the film had been cut due to “narrative choices.” “Narrative choices?” Look at the photos from last July – click here Full Story

There’s been a lot of talk about Justin Bieber’s management not letting him do any live interviews to promote his new song What Do You Mean because they don’t want him to f-ck up all the gains he’s made the last 6 months during his tour of contrition. Does The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon count as live? It’s live to tape… so… really… they can edit out any issues before they go to air just before midnight. Full Story

Tom Brady was at the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation kickoff gala last night. I thought I’d write about this because some of you are all about the ring watch…and he wasn’t wearing his. (Thanks Melissa!) As you know, just this morning, US Weekly reported that Gisele Bundchen “consulted with a divorce lawyer” recently. Full Story

Madonna had the white wedding dress at MTV, Miley had the foam finger. Madonna had the gondola in Venice, Miley has the Wrecking Ball. Full Story

Fresh off her wedding and honeymoon, Jennifer Aniston is back at work, seen here in Atlanta on the set of Mother’s Day, directed by Garry Marshall. You’ll recall, Garry Marshall also directed Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve. It’s almost like he doesn’t know that holidays are already schmaltzy. Full Story

Euphemisms are part of the gossip game. They are the colorful sprinkles tossed over the delicious sundae of smut, and by now we should all know a few key words, like “exhaustion”. We all know what “exhaustion” means. And now it looks like we need to add “scheduling” to our lexicon, because Bruce Willis exited Woody Allen’s new movie, just days after he was seen filming, and the official version of this story blames his sudden departure on Willis’s schedule. Full Story

In today’s installment of The Chrissy O Show… She went to the gym. With a friend. One the friends who’s been talking to the tabloids? I guess that’s how you get around an NDA. As you can see, even though the paps are following her around now, and even though she’s now known around the world as Ben Affleck’s nanny-mistress, Chrissy O is still all smiles. Full Story

It will hurt me if you say you have no idea who Sirius Black is. As you know, Ben Affleck spent his birthday last weekend at Harry Potter World with his family. Which, presumably, is where he got his new t-shirt. Good choice. Sirius is one of the most beloved characters created by JK Rowling. Full Story

This month, Jessica Alba covers Allure and Gwyneth Paltrow is on the cover of Fast Company. The stories revolve around The Honest Co. and Goop – billion-dollar evaluations and contextual commerce and investment (both financial and personal) and of course, the idea of lifestyle, that they are both, in their own ways, experts. Full Story
