Dear Gossips,

It’s MTV VMA weekend. Which is why everyone seems to be running a retrospective – the VMAs often deliver gossip that lasts the entire year. Look what happened with Miley in 2013. We talked about it for months. Lara sent me this look-back this morning – click here to see the slideshow. The last line made me laugh.

But I miss Britney.

I ALWAYS miss Britney this time of year.

Sarah was watching old Britney videos yesterday and couldn’t believe it. Someone tried to tell me recently that the Britney you see in Vegas now is back up to the standard of what Britney gave us at those old VMAs. That person is 23 years old. And then I realised…oh my God they don’t know. So many people don’t know. They were present enough to feel it while watching it live, that which has gone missing and might never come back. 

Britney received the Video Vanguard Award in 2011. The Video Vanguard for 2014 belongs to Beyonce. I just want to remind you, once again, that they are the SAME AGE.

Full VMAs wrap-up is coming on Monday. And then the Emmys on Monday night. Big gossip week ahead before Labour Day. Rest up!

Have a great weekend!

Dear Gossips,

Wait, I thought the rumour was that Carrie Underwood was performing at halftime at the Super Bowl …? Instead the Wall Street Journal reported the other day that the NFL has invited Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Coldplay …but that if they want the gig, they have to pay the league for the opportunity. The artists’ reaction? A “chilly reception”.

One of the arguments against this proposal is that it would essentially turn the halftime show into a giant commercial.  Read Full Intro

I don’t like the NFL much these days. A two game suspension for Ray Rice – that’s it? TWO GAMES? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, google Ray Rice (after you’ve finished reading my post!) and tell me what you think of a two game suspension for what he did. Full Story

During press for Guardians of the Galaxy last month, Chris Pratt said that he’d stolen his Star-Lord costume so that he could visit sick kids in the hospital dressed as his superhero character. And guess what? HE DID. Pratt visited the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles on Wednesday, screening Guardians for the kids, and he showed up dressed as Star-Lord. Full Story

Madonna’s done with Timor Steffens. OK good because I didn’t bother memorising his name. He’s young, an arty dancer type. And they were on holiday in the south of France and she decided before her birthday that she didn’t want to be with him anymore so, according to US Weekly Full Story

To the outsider, they don’t seem to have much in common. The internet doesn’t seem to understand their relationship. But it’s serious, lasting a lot longer than people thought it would. How have they prevailed? Love, sure. And also…oxycontin. They’re both addicted to oxy and often spend days at home, wrapped up in each other, doing oxy, back to her old habits. Full Story
