Reese Witherspoon modelled a very cute white laser cut two-piece yesterday while walking around LA. Speaking of Blake Lively, Reese too will soon be launching a lifestyle brand called Draper James. There will be retail stores. The first is expected to open next year…while she’s on an Oscar run? I posted about the first trailer for Wild – Hike, Pray, Love – last week. Full Story
Taylor Kitsch was in Brazil for the World Cup. On Friday it was widely reported that he and Colin Farrell are being considered for the second season of True Detective. It’d be a great career move for both – particularly Kitsch who did well on HBO’s The Normal Heart and could use some television stabilising after a rough attempt at the movies. Full Story

When was the last time Rachel McAdams covered a fashion magazine? Seems like it’s been a while. Unlike Jessica Alba who seems to be on one every other month. Which is why this feels so fresh. And she looks fresh too. Fresh face. So pretty. So natural. So much better than the over-touched images that we’re used to. Full Story

Justin Bieber is in Miami, living large. Or trying to. Yachts, girls, beers… It’s the big boy lifestyle. It goes with his muscles. Did you read the NY Mag article about JB that was posted this week, written by Vanessa Grigoriadis? She’s the one who was supposed to do the Gwyneth Paltrow “take-down” or Vanity Fair last year.

As mentioned last week, The Notebook celebrated its 10th anniversary last week and Nick Cassavetes, the director, talked to VH1 about some of his memories from the film, providing great insight on the actors, particularly Ryan Gosling. What’s getting the most attention is Cassavetes’ anecdote about the chemistry between Gosling and Rachel McAdams. Full Story
You know what I noticed about Justin Bieber’s face in those photos he posted on Instagram with Chris Brown and Akon and the crew in studio yesterday? (Great new couple, by the way. That’s the man combination every girl deserves.) Something’s missing.
His douche face.
You know his douche face.
You know the “swaggy” face.
There’s no swaggy here. It’s just…Junior. He’s Junior J here, voluntarily. Junior J is so much more tolerable, non?

Last night. The MuchMusic Video Awards. Toronto’s biggest block party, a massive spectacle, an annual tradition, and one of the few events outside New York and LA that draws some of the biggest names of the time. Lorde performed. Ariana Grande closed the show. Both videos are below. Did you know that after next week, Ariana Grande will be four years older than Lorde? Grande turns 21 on June 26. Full Story
Sorry about the late start. Was bitten by something last night, probably a spider, and had a bad reaction. The good news: Antihistamines really work.
Brange also works. I like waking up to new photos of them looking badass. It’s one of the best motivators of my job. Those were the first shots I saw when I checked my phone. The second?
“Our love is unconditional.”
No, not Brange. But Bieber about Selena, posted on Instagram and then deleted. Someone finds this romantic, you know. That’s the crazy about romance. It comes in every flavour. Like Twi-Hards thought it was awesome when the vampire broke into the teenage girl’s room and creeped on her sleeping. I have a friend who’s in love with a guy who will only see her in the middle of the night. Read Full Intro
I don’t think I’ve ever laughed harder in a movie than I did when I first saw Dumb and Dumber. It was a perfect convergence of comedy: I was twelve, Jim Carrey was at the top of his game, and the Farrelly Brothers’ gross-out aesthetic was brand new. Dumb and Dumber felt less like a movie and more like a collection of related skits. Full Story
More Justin Bieber saying racist sh-t videos have surfaced. He apologised the other day. He’s apologised again, telling the UK Sun that:
“Facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I've ever dealt with. But I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger. At the end of the day, I just need to step up and own what I did.”
Isn’t it so brave that he had to open his statement with how HARD IT IS FOR HIM???
JB is being shamed, as he should be, for behaving like a bigot f-ck. But you know who else should be shamed? The people who are laughing along with him, the people in his life who encouraged this in him. After all, he had to have learned from somewhere, from someone. Ignorance is contagious. Read Full Intro

So Rihanna and Drake are not happening. Again. Just before they happened again though, Drake was spending a lot of time with Zoe Kravitz. Last night Zoe and her band Lolawolf played in Toronto at the Mod Club. Both Kate and Natalie emailed me about this. And Zoe recently Instagrammed a shot of Drake to her account: Meaning…? I know what you might think it means. Full Story
