Reader Jackie sent an email this morning about Benedict Cumberbatch that basically boiled down to, “Benedict Cumberbatch seems to be skating along the edge of other people’s bad decisions, so when does that become a problem for him?” (Emphasis mine). Her examples: playing a white-washed role in Star Trek Into Darkness (Khan, who, it should be noted, has never been played by an Indian actor), the whole Fifth Estate Full Story

They love each other. At least that’s the narrative right now because they’re promoting their new song Who You Love. And the video too. Katy Perry and John Mayer were on Good Morning America today, together, for its release. By fame standards then, at this point they’re practically married. Full Story
One of the surprises of 2012 was that the 21 Jump Street movie reboot didn’t suck. It very much did not suck. It was, actually, pretty funny. And it’s only gotten funnier on repeat viewings, which is the sign of a classic. It might chap your ass a little because it was produced and conceived as a Jonah Hill vanity project, but does the fact that Channing Tatum is so likeable cancel that out? Does Tatum somehow alleviate whatever annoyance Hill carries? It’s hard to dislike the Jonah Hill that is responsible for 21 Jump Street. Full Story

That Dame. She was all about the romantic drama, right up until she died…and Colin Farrell was her last boyfriend! Remember when he spoke at her memorial service? Remember when we were all like, huh, how did that happen? Well, Colin’s promoting Saving Mr Banks right now and, during an interview with Ellen that airs this week, reveals how they met. Full Story
Masters Of Sex Season 1 Episode 12 recap Ha! Okay, this show doesn’t go for the cheap laugh or any laugh, per se, but I didn’t mind that line from Lester. It was a much needed moment of levity in an episode that seemed like it was going to break under the weight of its own revelations. Full Story
This Shia LaBeouf situation… Here’s the abbreviated version: Shia LaBeouf made a short film about a film critic. It was screened in Cannes in 2012. On Monday he posted it online which is when it became obvious that LaBeouf had lifted the plot and several passages, WORD FOR WORD, from a comic written in 2007 by Daniel Clowe. Full Story
Thanks for your emails yesterday re: the Harry Styles cutoff. Three times he was with the kin of Kanye West's girlfriend. And three times is too many, even though, God he's just so f-cking cute with the hair and the dimples and the...
We have to, you understand. Because he's now willingly being exploited by Kris Jenner. It's over ...at least until it's over.
But before we get to Shia LaBeouf, let's remember, yet again, that Shia LaBeouf started out as a child star. At this point it's almost a foolproof guarantee to f-ck up your kid: make them famous.
Sorry about being late today. It's been a clusterf-ck. I had an early shoot for etalk that started at 8am. And our dog, Barney, is sick and Jacek had to spend the morning at the vet. We're low on manpower. Doing our best to get back on schedule. We apologise for the inconvenience. Thanks so much for your patience.
On the plus side...
Blake Lively is giving us some gold. Remember that lifestyle project she's been promising that no one has ever thought of yet because she's super original? Well apparently it's not exactly "lifestyle" but it does involve food. She's "creating a brand that (she feels) the need for". And she’s being "vague" on purpose because she's been working on it for two years and when it finally launches -- some time in 2014 -- you'll know her genius, obviously, and understand why it's taken so long, with so much mystery.
No. No, we're not talking about Beyonce.
But that’s how Blake Lively is making it sound.

Yours in gossip,
Barbara Walters named Miley Cyrus one of her Most Fascinating People of 2013. So Miley opened up to Barbara about the broken engagement, her breakup with Liam Hemsworth. No big revelation. Doesn’t sound like she addressed his hookup with January Jones on Oscar weekend (too bad). Instead, it was as we all assumed – THEY WERE TOO YOUNG. Full Story

Katy Perry performed on The X Factor in the UK this weekend. I read about it before I heard it. And they were saying her vocals were so sh-t she woulda been voted off the show. Ok so then I listened. Yes, totally sh-t. But... How is this new? When I think of Katy Perry live it's not like I'm pulling out my credit card. 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

Check out Jason Momoa at a party the other day in LA kissing a woman believed to be his ex-fiancee Simmone Jade Mackinnon. Everyone is saying up and down that they’re “just friends”. OK. I don’t want to dispute that. What I’d like to discuss is whether or not if you saw your husband/wife/lover/whatever in a photo like this, would that just roll off you, no problem? At a certain point, when you commit to being with someone who looks the way Jason Momoa looks, I wonder if you just have to deal. Full Story
It’s the holidays. So, time to eat, and time for the weight loss companies to exploit your eating guilt. And Porny’s the face of it.
