Dear Gossips,

I heard a song on the radio on the way to work this morning and it made me want to watch the video as soon as I came into the office. Remember Paula Abdul’s Rush Rush with Keanu Reeves as James Dean?

The song is still super corny, almost sickly. Back then I remember being kinda skeeved by some of the lyrics. Can you imagine singing that to someone?

Hurry hurry lover, come to me
I wanna see
I wanna see you get free with me

Hard to believe when the video first came out, its suggestiveness was enough for people. Now I watch it by today’s standards and it’s even cleaner than a Taylor Swift concert. If this song came out today, Paula and Keanu would be rubbing up on each other a lot harder. And you know what? I would have wanted to see that. Full Story

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are just about done. While no official announcement has been made, it’s undeniable now that not only is a confirmation imminent but that they are never, ever getting back together. According to TMZ the two are even getting on quite well, for the sake of the children, and most of the terms of the divorce have already been settled, with Nick coming out of this looking really, really good. Full Story
