Dear Gossips,

Did you know that Hello Kitty lives just outside of London and has a twin sister called Mimmy? She also bakes and collects goldfish. No? No idea. Me neither. But now I do because Hello Kitty is becoming a movie.

And it’s not like I never went through a Hello Kitty phase. Every summer, I’d go back to Hong Kong to stay with my ma. Every year I’d come back to school with Hello Kitty gear – pencil cases, erasers, notebooks, lunchboxes. But that’s it. I’d never write in my Hello Kitty binder and wonder about Hello Kitty’s personality. Didn’t give a sh-t about her life. Hello Kitty has a life?!? Hello Kitty has to matter to me beyond the fact that Mimi dedicated an entire room to her in her apartment?

Hello Kitty, the movie, is planned for release in 2019.

Yours in gossip,

As you’ve probably seen by now, Taylor Swift and her collection of friends showed us all what it was like to party at her place on the Fourth of July. F-ck. I would have wanted to go down that water slide. IN SOMEONE’S BACKYARD. It’s been a long time since I played in a personal pool, like a pool in someone’s home, not a hotel, not a resort. Full Story

Princess Charlotte was christened yesterday at Sandringham. It’s the first time the Cambridges stepped out in public as a four-piece. Charlotte travelled by pram to church, pushed by her mother, who walked alongside her dad and her brother. Her brother. Big G. Who, as we’ve seen, as we know, has made every single event that’s supposed to be about his sister about himself instead. Full Story

Henry Cavill was in Dublin this weekend attending the Groove Festival. Those are not festival-fitting jeans. Those are not any-fitting jeans. God I’ve never wanted to go shopping with/for a guy so badly. There has to be a pair of pants that works for him. I refuse to believe that this is impossible. Full Story

Today in “We Could Have Had It All” news, Ava DuVernay told Essence magazine in an interview that she ended up passing on the Black Panther directing gig, citing “different ideas” with Marvel over the direction the movie should take. This is a total bummer, because DuVernay seemed like a great fit Full Story

So while Taylor was hosting all her friends in Rhode Island for the Fourth of July, George spent the holiday in Italy, at his Lake Como estate, with Amal and Julia Roberts’s husband and kids. Julia and Danny Moder were celebrating their 13th wedding anniversary. Full Story

The fascinating thing about A-list breakups isn’t always the mechanics of “why.” It’s often not hard to understand why: big egos, long stretches of time apart, an endless line of hot people to have affairs with, professional jealousy. When the breakup involves a couple that, over the years, revived a career, built the all-American family, won an Oscar and secured a superhero franchise, the strategy behind how we are being presented the “why” is a definite study in celebrity culture. Full Story

Jenny! It’s that time of year again, time for your family and friends to humiliate you. I could defend you before with Gopher and Daryl Hall. After all, who doesn’t like a little Out Of Touch? But… Adam Levine? You don’t want to punch that smirk off his face? Anyway, I’ve been asked to post Benjamin Bratt for you as a chaser. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Magic Mike vs Terminator this weekend at the box office – which way are you going? Here are some interesting comparisons:

Magic Mike XXL was made for just under $15 million while Terminator Genisys cost $155 million. For Channing Tatum, then, it’s really not that much pressure compared to the other guy. According to Deadline, last night at screenings of Magic Mike XXL across the US “96% of Magic Mike XXL‘s audience was comprised of females — that’s the biggest female share ever”. And of that number, 34% of fans were there for Channing Tatum. I can understand this. He’s one of the reasons I’ll be going at some point too. Because I do enjoy, so much, watching him dance. And also, I just like him so much. Another reason? Magic Mike is one of those movies that you don’t have to worry about missing any dialogue during the hootin’ and the hollerin’. It’s a form of relaxation isn’t it? Listening to people requires so much more energy.

Have a great weekend!
