StratEgery Articles

Articles and photos related to celebrity strategy, politics, and media manipulation. The term "StratEgery" is not a LaineyGossip original. Look up Will Ferrell doing George Bush to understand.

Why not Kirsten Dunst?

In the previous article, about casting the female lead in the second season of True Detective, given the list of actresses being auditioned, they seem to be looking for someone in her 30s who can go dark. This is why I don’t understand why Mrs Timberlake is on the list. Rosario Dawson? 100%. Full Story

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association confirmed yesterday that George Clooney will be the 2015 recipient of the Cecil B DeMille Award. You think they’re giving it to him on the just the work…and not because they want him to show up at their party? Come on. It’s the HFPA. Full Story

Taylor Swift covers Rolling Stone. It’s the BEST celebrity magazine profile of the year. No question. And by best I mean the most entertaining. The juiciest. GREAT for gossip. I could not get enough. I had to read it twice, back to back, because I didn’t want it to be over. So, if you haven’t already, set aside 10 minutes today and make sure you’re not interrupted. Full Story

They were in Portofino. Taking time off to celebrate her birthday which was last week. Not sure how that's unlike every other day. Aren't we always celebrating Beyonce? Beyonce wanted to reward us for celebrating her. So she posted a photo of herself, obviously, on Instagram, contorting her body, because nothing says "thank you fans" like giving the world an opportunity to marvel at her body. Full Story

This was supposed to be the lead story. It was when I wrote the column last night. But nothing trumps a royal baby. Not even George Clooney’s wedding. He and Amal Alamuddin walked the carpet together in Venice on Sunday at Celebrity Fight Night, doing us a favour - we now have proper not blurry, not papped, side-by-side shots (that don’t cost a fortune) of them to use whenever there's a story. Full Story

Amal Alamuddin was seen in London yesterday after having spent over an hour at the Alexander McQueen studio, leading to speculation that Sarah Burton is doing the wedding dress. You’ll recall, Burton also did Princess Catherine’s wedding dress. That dress, obviously, had to be more classic, verging on the more conservative side of the McQueen spectrum. Full Story

A couple of months ago, Katie Holmes was “papped” at a drug store, studying a bottle of moisturiser. Somehow the photographer was able to get super close. In the aisle of a drug store! And, conveniently, the label on the lotion was clearly visible. Click here Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin spent the long weekend together, sort of, in the Hamptons. They hung out with their kids. They were photographed walking home with them. Then he went back, on his own, to his rental house across the street. At which point the internet exploded with nude pictures of his new girlfriend. Full Story

Oh look. It’s Beyonce and JayZ at his Made In America Festival on Sunday night. He’s touching her, and rather intimately. She looks like she’s enjoying it. She also knows she’s being photographed. So, by all means, please continue to speculate. You want more to speculate about? Check her Instagram Full Story

I have a bottle of the Chateau Miraval rose at home in the cupboard. Did it just go up in value today? Who does it better? They do it the best. No, SHE does it the best. It’s been a year of platinum game for Angelina Jolie. And she just won’t stop. Her level of control and strategy, precise execution and delivery is…God…it fills me with such joy, such appreciation. Full Story

The way the light hits her mid-section, you know what the conversation was supposed to be? IS JEN PREGNANT? For the 33rd time. Full Story

You know what I’ve been talking about a lot the last couple of days? Justin Theroux’s penis. My friend N brought it up first after watching The Leftovers. He runs in every episode. And when he’s running, it’s right there. Like, right there. I swear we’re not being pervs about it. Full Story
