Adele has said that she’s pretty discerning about who or what she licenses her music to/for. The Muppets TV show belongs to ABC. That’s not a free parody. They would have had to ask/pay for permission. And, you know, for Adele, it’s not about the money. It’s about the worthy. Full Story

Occasionally there will be someone who emails me all huffy about my posts on Mimi, accusing me of exaggerating the Mimi. There is no exaggeration.

I interviewed Josh Brolin for Gangster Squad a couple of years ago. Half our interview was about Ryan Gosling’s balls…which wasn’t actually what I was asking. All I did was throw Josh a question about Ryan, what's he like to work with, their chemistry, etc. And then he started talking about Ryan’s balls and how they’re like a “vineyard”. Full Story

Mimi and James Packer walked their first red carpet together yesterday in New York at the premiere of The Intern. As you can tell, red carpets aren’t his thing. But for her, that’s a bonus.

I posted photos of Woody, Tom Hardy’s dog, being a total boss on the carpet in London yesterday at the premiere of Legend. Woody didn’t want to go home after the movie.
