So, in delightful news, Lea Michele is writing a book that will be out next spring. That in itself is fun, yes -- it’s going to be “part memoir, part how-to and part style guide” and I am very much looking forward to a how-to of getting the stomp-dance in “Mama Who Bore Me” just right -- but this alone is not the reason for my delight. Full Story

Of course he does. We all agree that he totally wants to be a super famous star, right? I mean, I like the guy, but you can’t overlook his, um, eagerness. It’s what you like or don’t like about him—the Try is either annoying or adorable, like a puppy humping your leg for attention, depending on your tolerance. Full Story

About a week before US Weekly exposed the Kristen Stewart-Rupert Sanders affair, a brilliantly hilarious item appeared in Page Six about how Ashley Greene was taking over Stewart as the go-to girl from Twilight.

Mary-Kate Olsen is dating Olivier Sarkozy. She’s 26, he’s 42. Here they are in New York the other day with his daughter, a manifestation of the new modern family. Many of you are huffing about her smoking around the kid. I won’t get in the way of that except to say that Miss Sarkozy, given that her father runs in circles where meeting MK Olsen would even be possible, was probably already contaminated before MK entered her life. Full Story

Have you read Nicole Krauss’s The History Of Love? It’s such a beautiful, devastating book, you really should if you haven’t already. Anyway, there’s a part near the beginning as we’re being introduced to old Leo Gursky, who seems to finding ways to put off death by redirecting pain to different parts of his body, so as not to burden the already weak parts. Full Story

God, Anna Wintour is such a mega bitch it’s...amazing.Here’s Victoria Beckham in Vogue this month, NOT the cover. Even though it’s a pretty long ass article. The kind of long article that usually belongs to the front page subject. The kind of article with the kind of access that, for any other celebrity, comes only with a front page guarantee. Full Story

Like most of you, playing Hate Lea Michele’s Hard-Posing used to be my favourite sport too. And then Taylor Swift happened.
