Dear Gossips,

MTV says that they’ll let Miley do whatever she wants on Sunday at the VMAs. And Miley says that MTV will be letting her do whatever she wants when she’s hosting the VMAs. So the question is: what does “whatever Miley wants” look like right now? Check her Instagram. She told the NYT that that’s what the inspiration will be. Oh and that Seth Rogen and his team wrote a lot of her opening. So….weed?

More weed and less twerking. In her NYT interview to promote the show, she insists there will be no references to Robin Thicke and foam fingers. That she’s not about that life anymore. She also says she’s the “most disconnected host in history” because she doesn’t really know what videos are nominated and doesn’t listen to the music that’s being featured at the VMAs. Well that’s rich because Wrecking Ball is the reigning Video Of The Year. And that’s where Miley shows you her age. She’s grown a lot. But she’s also still just 22, still the girl who comes to the party but wants you to think she’s cooler than the party. And still the girl who wants to believe she’s above it but can’t resist getting into it.

You see that play out with how the NYT journalist draws her into the Nicki Minaj-Taylor Swift situation. Here’s Miley’s initial response to the question:

“I saw that. I didn’t really get into it. I know there was some beef. I don’t really know. There’s a way to talk to people ...”

There’s nothing there that you can turn into a headline. But the journalist went for the follow-up and then continued by informing Miley that part of Nicki’s criticism of the VMA nomination process included Miley’s Wrecking Ball too. And that’s what got Miley going. That’s why today you’ll be reading all over the internet that Miley’s answer to Nicki is that “you made it about you”.

And MTV has confirmed that Nicki will be opening the show. MTV has always been good at that, non?

It’ll be an all-nighter for us on Sunday so check in early on Monday for full VMAs coverage.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

I’m going to go ahead and put a SPOILER warning on this, even though I don’t think anything released by a movie studio as part of marketing counts as a spoiler. But I get tired of spoiler babies crying in my inbox, so SPOILERS, if you’re trying to avoid any and everything relating to New New Star Wars. Full Story

We were hoping that Brange would be on the festival circuit with By The Sea. Then both Venice and TIFF announced their lineups and … no Brange. Turns out the Jolie was saving it for AFI Fest. AFI Fest announced today that By The Sea, written and directed by Angelina Jolie, starring Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and Melanie Laurent, will be the opening night film. Full Story

Fresh off her wedding and honeymoon, Jennifer Aniston is back at work, seen here in Atlanta on the set of Mother’s Day, directed by Garry Marshall. You’ll recall, Garry Marshall also directed Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve. It’s almost like he doesn’t know that holidays are already schmaltzy. Full Story

I don’t really get Greta Gerwig. She’s not untalented, but she doesn’t really rock my face off, either. Yet people keep flipping out over her (Lainey: I used to flip over her), and I just want to ask—you’ve seen Chloe Sevigny, right? You do know that Chloe Sevigny exists? Because Greta Gerwig is basically Millennial Chloe Sevigny, which is not a bad thing to be, but let’s not pretend like it’s a whole new thing. Full Story

She told Kimmel that they’re basically letting her do whatever she wants…which is what she’s supposed to say. Full Story

It was predicted that Justin Timberlake would show up on stage at some point during Taylor Swift’s 5 show Staples Centre run… And of course he had to be last. I’ll throw the video up right now because they’ve been pulling them down so fast you have to watch it as soon as you can. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I’m never the kind of person who starts playing holiday music before Halloween but after yesterday, you know what we kinda need?

We need some Christmas.

You know who owns Christmas?

Come on. It’s Mimi. Always Mimi. Christmas is Mimi season. Mimi wrote one of the most famous Christmas songs of all time. Now Mimi has written a Christmas book. Wellll… OK, she didn’t write it, because it’s a picture book, but the pictures are set to the lyrics of All I Want For Christmas Is You.  Read Full Intro
