Parts of Rebel Heart, a new song from Madonna, leaked last night. Alan just sent me a link to it. Click here to listen. People are complaining about the vocals. They’re rough right now but this is probably a rough cut. To me this is not what’s offensive. Full Story

Lorella texted me this morning and asked me if I’d heard Idris Elba’s new song. I told her I hadn’t and that I didn’t want to. Because…well… You’ve seen his Private Garden before, right? Look. I’d love a situation in which my private garden and Idris Elba are having a conversation but this…was not what I had in mind a few years ago when I first wrote about it: But then Lorella clarified that she’d heard the new song on the radio in London and it was good. Full Story

People have been talking about Nick Jonas since the end of the summer. I’ve not posted once about him. Part of it is because I didn’t quite believe it would stick. But Nick Jonas seems to be sticking. Is it the song? Is it Jealous? I mean, it’s a good song. It’s not a song I blast on repeat but it’s not JLO’s Booty either. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

This fall I read Sheila Weller’s new book The News Sorority about Christiane Amanpour, Diane Sawyer, and Katie Couric. SO good. Empowering and dishy at the same time – like good gossip? A debate for another day. The News Sorority is Weller’s follow-up to Girls Like Us, a triple bio of Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon. I was OBSESSED with it. Click here for my review.

Girls Like Us was supposed to be turned into a movie. Two years ago, it was reported that Taylor Swift was in talks to play Joni Mitchell. Click here  Read Full Intro

Lady Gaga has been touring all over the world, dressed in a variety of crazy ass outfits for attention because, well, the Gaga hype isn’t what it was, is it? After a while, none of it is all that remarkable anymore. The more outlandish the costume, the less I care. So here she is, home in New York today and NOT wearing something stupid. Full Story

Rihanna was in New York yesterday for a meeting with JayZ. She had her grandfather with her. There have been reports for a while now that she’s been readying a new album. Some rumours had it dropping before Christmas. So far it’s all just speculation but even she has said that it’ll be “soon” and giving hints on social media about #R8. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I love a lot of things about Duana. But one of my favourite things, especially during award season, is that she still calls her Giuliana DePandi. I’m like a kid when she does it, begging her, “Do it again! Do it again!” It’s the best.

So. The American Music Awards. I watched them for Taylor Swift. Then I had to endure Ariana Grande TWO TIMES – and her jack rabbit of a brother – to get to JLO’s ass. That’s three hours that should have been Diana Ross, Beyonce, Taylor, Sam Smith, Skylar Grey, and Wyclef, that’s it. Doesn’t that cover all the food groups? Instead I had to have nightmares about the Magic guy and his gross hips

We’ll get to the AMAs – as much as I can stand to cover – but first…we have some other business to address from the weekend.  Read Full Intro

A great ass doesn’t make a song

Jennifer Lopez got all wet-haired and grindy for the final performance of the night with Iggy Azalea at the American Music Awards which came with an advance warning that it was going to be all kinds of raunch. Hardly. Instead, it was a lot of dancing. And a costume change. And yes, JLO looked amazing and she moved energetically but… That wasn’t a song. Full Story

Can you really be called a great vocalist when it’s just sounds coming out of your mouth with no words? I don’t understand a word of what Ariana Grande is singing because she’s too busy doing sh-t with the notes. She also has, like, zero stage presence. That could be an 8 year old at a recital for all I know. Full Story

On the subject of perspective… I’ve written about it so many times, what heartbreak is like at that age – so singular and isolating, so…narcissistic. You don’t think anyone has ever hurt the way you hurt. You think you INVENTED hurt. Despite what she posted on Instagram from backstage at rehearsal, about wanting people to relate, really, this kind of pain is an emotional cave that was created for only one inhabitant at a time. Full Story

Perspective. Makes you look like an asshole. And it took Iggy Azalea to make me realise how much I like Fergie. As I’ve said before re: Iggy Azalea, I am not a believer. I refuse to buy into her star. Madonna was the one who taught us how to pat our pussies, OK? Fergie though… I loved everything about Fergie last night – the wrap shirt over the bodysuit, the gold boots, she was on point with the performance, she sounded great, her legs are sick, and she’s as pretty as she’s ever been. Full Story

Last night was all about Sam Smith’s coat. That coat! It took me back. Back to 80s London pop. Before Rick Astley was properly appreciated. Before he became an internet meme. I haven’t been Rick-rolled in so long I almost miss it. Sam Smith was like the baby Rick and Boy George always wanted to have together. Full Story

At this point I think she should just change the name of the song to Lonely Starbucks Lovers. Yes, I can read the lyrics. But all I HEAR is “Lonely Starbucks Lovers”. And reading your emails and tweets, it seems you are the same. I love that they had to give her a Lifetime Achievement Award just to get her there. Full Story

In advance of the American Music Awards – and the RIDICULOUS fact that Iggy Azalea was nominated for more awards than she was, WTF? – Beyonce dropped her video for 7/11 on Friday. Which is what everyone was talking about for most of the weekend. And she stepped out with Jay wearing a “B” in the front, “BOW DOWN” in the back varsity jacket just in case you don’t get the point… As for the video? Oh come on. Full Story
